Tom Blanton’s ISOO 40th Anniversary Keynote Speech

January 15, 2019

Our director Tom Blanton recently gave the keynote speech at the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) 40th anniversary event. ISOO, which is part of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), is charged with standardizing classification and ensuring that information is properly shared.

Blanton, whose speech begins at the 21-minute mark, discussed the origins of ISOO, praised former Director Steve Garfinkel’s ability to push through bulk declassification, and spelled out what NARA needs to do to bring its declassification programs into the twenty-first century.
