About This Show
In the security world a "SCIF" ['skiff'] or "Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility" is a special secured room where classified information is processed and shared.
National security expert, Juliette Kayyem, brings you inside the security world in a deeper way. By exploring the planning and decisions behind our own safety--both nationally and locally-- this podcast takes some of the mystery out of what makes us safer.

Episode 105: Protecting POTUS Trump
The Presidential Transition is a very sensitive time for security. But the final day of that process, Inauguration Day, is a particularly challenging day for one very specific branch of our national security structure: The United States Secret Service. And that day will only be the beginning of years of protecting POTUS Trump and the entire First Family. Mark Sullivan was the Director of the United States Secret Service from 2006-2013. He served in the USSS for 30 years and joins Juliette in The SCIF ['skiff'] to discuss some of the challenges of protecting the President and the First Family.
