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.

Customer Reviews

Interested to see how good this podcast is

I work in a SCIF. I hope this podcast is more entertaining than actually working in a SCIF because that would be soooooo boring. I can't even listen to this podcast in the SCIF because I'm not allowed to bring my phone in!


Great podcast to stay informed with given the current environment in the intel and military communities.

Professional, brief, and super-informative

Juliette Kayyem delivers an excellent security-related podcast with The SCIF. I appreciate her focus, her choice in guests, and her diligence in making it all understandable to the layman (without dumbing it down much, if at all). Simply put, it's an excellent podcast, for which I not-so-patiently await the next episode.
