In the SF 86 section 27: Technology.
The question was asked “In the last seven (7) years have you introduced, removed, or used hardware, software, or media in connection with any information technology system without authorization, when specifically prohibited by rules, procedures, guidelines, or regulations or attempted any of the above?”
I’ve read in another discussion that this references downloading of copyright material to personal computers and not necessarily work computers.
How does one answer this question. If the person has downloaded for maybe 3 years (approximately) and received a letter from the ISP that they are now required to report activities to the government on the use P2P. Since, that letter all downloading of this type of media has stopped. This might have occurred before 2014.
Is that is an immediate disqualification for a secret?
