Definition Edit

A sensitivity level is

[a] designation, associated with information, indicating (1) the amount of harm that can be caused by the exposure of that information to an unauthorized user, (2) any formal access approvals that must be granted prior to the granting of access to that information, and (3) any specific handling restrictions placed on that information. Sensitivity levels contain both a hierarchical component (e.g., Unclassified, CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, TOP SECRET) and a non-hierarchical component (e.g., For Official Use Only (FOUO), Proprietary Information Enclosed (PROPIN)).[1]
