Security clearances for Oracle Professionals

With the huge influx of work on government and classified systems, many Oracle professionals are seeking U.S. government security clearances, especially TOP SECRET, SECRET, and the civilian contractor “Q” clearances.

Having a security clearance opens-up a whole new world of access to state-of-the-art Oracle systems, but not just anyone can qualify.

In addition to being a U.S. citizen, all candidates for security clearances to work on classified Oracle databases must pass a rigorous background check, evaluating all areas of your life.  The goal is to measure moral turpitude and there are many “disqualifying conditions” which will eliminate any Oracle professional:

  • arrest and/or conviction of a felony;
  • frequent involvement with authorities even as a juvenile;
  • DWI/DUI;
  • having been a patient in an institution primarily devoted to the treatment of mental, emotional, or psychological disorders;
  • Inability or unwillingness to satisfy debts.  A history of not meeting financial obligations.  A pattern of financial irresponsibility (bankruptcy, debt or credit problems, defaulting on a student loan);
  • membership in any organization that advocates the commission of acts of force or violence to deny other persons their rights under the Constitution of the United States;
  • having petitioned to be declared a conscientious objector to war;
  • Traffic moving violations with fines over $200;
  • illegal drug use (to include


    use of cocaine, heroin, LSD, and PCP); and the illegal purchase, possession, or sale of any such narcotics.
  • Deceptive or illegal financial practices, such as embezzlement, employee theft, check fraud, income tax evasion, expense account fraud, filing deceptive loan statements, and other intentional breaches of trust

We also see a host of borderline mental disorders that will disqualify an Oracle professional for a security clearance:

  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Narcissistic Personality Disorder
  • Paranoid Personality Disorder
