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.
