(PII). Annual refresher training is mandatory. In addition, all Foreign 
Service and Civil Service employees and those Locally Engaged Staff who 
handle PII are required to take the Foreign Service Institute distance 
learning course instructing employees on privacy and security 
requirements, including the rules of behavior for handling PII and the 
potential consequences if it is handled improperly.
    Access to the Department of State, its annexes and posts abroad is 
controlled by security guards and admission is limited to those 
individuals possessing a valid identification card or individuals under 
proper escort. While the majority of records covered in the Legal Case 
Management Records are electronic, all paper records containing 
personal information are maintained in secured file cabinets in 
restricted areas, access to which is limited to authorized personnel. 
Access to computerized files is password-protected and under the direct 
supervision of the system manager. The system manager has the 
capability of printing audit trails of access from the computer media, 
thereby permitting regular and ad hoc monitoring of computer usage. 
When it is determined that a user no longer needs access, the user 
account is disabled.
    Before being granted access to Legal Case Management Records, a 
user must first be granted access to the Department of State computer 
system. Remote access to the Department of State network from non-
Department owned systems is authorized only through a Department 
approved access program. Remote access to the network is configured 
with the authentication requirements contained in the Office of 
Management and Budget Circular Memorandum A-130. All Department of 
State employees and contractors with authorized access have undergone a 
background security investigation.
