Institutional security clearances given to staff represent the highest level or type of information they can access. However, having a certain level of permission does not automatically grant access to all information at that level: staff are only given access to information on a "need to know" basis and at the discretion of the designated information officer overseeing their respective departments.

Level 0 (for official use only)[]

Level 0Leave is usually given to non-essential employees, such as logistics, administrative or security positions. However, these personnel only gain this access if they work in a facility that contains little or no abnormal objects or data, otherwise they are assigned Level 1.

This authorization allows this category of personnel minimal access without providing documentation or sensitive data. Key cards are not issued to members with this license level.

Level 1 (unlimited)[]

Level 1Permission is granted to non-essential personnel working in facilities with abnormal items or data. Level 0 positions listed above are granted this level of access if they transfer to one of these positions. Category D personnel must always have this amount of leave.

The license allows limited access, with little or no documentation or sensitive data provided to this category of personnel. Key cards are issued with yellow highlights all over the card.

Level 2 (Limited)[]

Level 2authorization is granted to security and investigative personnel who require access to abnormal devices and/or documentation. Most people in any of the above departments have this amount of permission.

The license allows reasonable access to essential parts of documentation and sensitive data provided to this category of personnel. Keycards are issued with a prominent bright orange color displayed throughout the card.

Level 3 (Confidential)[]

Level 3Authorization is granted to senior security and investigative personnel who require access to certain anomalous entity-related data and/or documentation, including containment procedures and past experiments. Senior staff in any of the above departments usually take this much leave, as do MTF officers.

This authorization allows significant amounts of access, with a large amount of documentation and sensitive data being provided to this category of personnel. Key cards are issued with a prominent orange color all over the card.

Level 4 (Secret)[]

Level 4Permission is granted to staff who require knowledge of highly sensitive Foundation data or irregular items. These famous people are usually high-ranking Foundation employees, such as site managers or security directors. Occasionally, lower-level staff may have this level of access, depending on the work they do.

This permission gives access to almost everything in the SCP database. Key cards are issued with an orange-red color across the card.

Level 5 (Top Secret)[]

Level 5leave is granted only to staff who work directly in the O5 administration and to staff who are essential to the operation of the fund. Level 5 access is very rarely granted as it gives relatively unlimited access to everything the Foundation knows. Due to the extreme security risk of cards at this level of privacy, biometric identifiers and destruction agents are used instead of cards to access highly sensitive data.

Level 6 (Secular Top Secret)[]

Level 6Permission is granted exclusively to the administrator, the O5 board and key members of the ethics committee. This permission gives knowledge to anyone who has information about the fund. Due to the extreme security risk of cards at this level of privacy, biometric identifiers and destruction agents are used instead of cards to access highly sensitive data.

Classifications are assigned to personnel based on their proximity to potentially dangerous anomalous objects, entities, or phenomena.

Class A[]

Category A personnel are those who are considered key to the Foundation's strategic operations and under no circumstances have access to irregularities. When circumstances require Class A personnel to be in close proximity to such anomalies (as in the case of facilities housing containment units), Class A personnel will not have access to areas of the facility containing such anomalies and will generally stay within safe areas of the route. In the event of an emergency, Class A personnel must immediately evacuate to a designated and safe location off-site. The members of the O5 board are always Class A personnel.

class B[]

Category B personnel are those deemed essential to local Foundation operations and may only have access to items, devices, and anomalies that have passed quarantine and are free of potential mind-altering effects or mimetic agents. In the event of a containment breach or hostile action against a Foundation facility, Class B personnel must evacuate to a designated, secure off-site location as soon as possible.

Class C[]

Category C personnel are personnel with direct access to most anomalies that are not considered strictly hostile or dangerous. Category C personnel who have had direct contact with potentially influencing or mimetic properties may be subject to mandatory quarantine and psychiatric evaluation as appropriate by security personnel. In the event of a containment breach or hostile action against an underlying installation, Class C non-combatant personnel must either report to perimeter security or evacuate as determined by on-site security personnel in the event of a full site deployment. breach or other catastrophic event.

Class D[]

Class D personnel are useless personnel used to deal with highly dangerous anomalies and must not come into contact with Class A or B personnel. Class D personnel are usually drawn worldwide from inmates convicted of violent crimes, especially those punishable by death. In times of urgency, Protocol 12 may be adopted, allowing recruitment from other sources—such as political prisoners, refugee populations, and other civilian sources—to be transferred to the Trust's custody under reasonably contentious conditions. Class D personnel must undergo regular mandatory psychiatric evaluations and receive amnesty for at least Class B strength or be terminated at the end of the month as determined by field security or medical staff. In the event of a catastrophic on-site incident, Class D personnel must be released immediately, unless deemed necessary by on-site safety personnel.

Class E[]

Class E is a temporary classification applied to field agents and containment personnel who have been exposed to potentially hazardous effects while securing and establishing initial containment of a newly determined anomalous object, entity, or phenomenon. Category E personnel must be quarantined as soon as possible, monitored and screened for possible adverse changes in behavior, personality, or physiology, and not returned to duty until reviewed and cleared by psychiatric and medical personnel.

These are general job titles commonly used in the Foundation.

Venue staff[]

Retention expert[]

Retention specialists have two primary roles in the Foundation's facilities. First, containment teams must respond to confirmed cases of anomalous activity to secure and establish initial containment of anomalous objects, entities, or phenomena and transport them to the nearest containment area in the facility. In addition, Foundation engineers and containment technicians are required to design, improve, and maintain protective devices and arrangements for facilities, devices, and phenomena within Foundation facilities.


The researchers are the scientific arm of the Foundation, drawn from among the most talented and qualified researchers from around the world. With experts in every imaginable field, from chemistry and botany to more esoteric or specialized fields such as theoretical physics and xenobiology, the foundation's research programs aim to better understand unexplained anomalies and how they work.

Security guard[]

Field security officers - often simply referred to as guards - at foundation facilities are tasked with maintaining physical and information security for foundation projects, operations and staff. Security officers, primarily composed and recruited from military, law enforcement and prison personnel, are trained in the use of all types of weapons as well as a range of contingency plans covering both breach incidents and hostile action. This staff is also responsible forInformationsecurity, such as ensuring that sensitive documents are not lost and that the facility's computer systems are protected from outside intrusions. They are also often the first line of defense of Foundation facilities against hostile external forces.

Tactical Response Officer[]

Response Teams—or Tactical Teams—are highly trained and heavily armed combat teams tasked with accompanying containment teams when dangerous abnormal entities or hostile interest groups are involved and defending Foundation facilities against hostile action. Response Teams are essentially military units stationed at large Foundation facilities that are ready to deploy at a moment's notice.

Field staff[]

The field[]

Field agents are the foundation's eyes and ears, personnel trained to look for and investigate signs of unusual activity, often hidden from local or regional law enforcement or embedded in local agencies such as emergency services and regulatory organizations. As covert units, field agents are usually not equipped to deal with confirmed cases of abnormal activity. Once such an incident is confirmed and isolated, field agents will typically seek assistance from the nearest field containment team with the means to safely secure and contain such anomalies.

Mobil Task Force Operativ[]

Mobile workforces are specialized units made up of veteran field staff from across the Foundation. These task forces are mobilized to address threats of a specific nature and can include anything from field investigators specializing in a specific type of anomaly to heavily armed combat units tasked with securing specific types of hostile anomalous entities. See the working group document for more detailed information. The SCPs they maintain are attached in the [REDACTED] file



Construction site manager[]

Site managers for the Foundation's main facilities are senior staff at that site and are responsible for the continuous, safe operation of the site and all contained irregularities and projects. All Head of Departments report directly to the Site Manager, who in turn reports to the O5 Council.

5. council member[]

The O5 Council refers to a board made up of the foundation's senior managers. With full access to all information on containment anomalies, the O5 Council oversees all Foundation operations worldwide and directs its long-term strategic plans. Due to the sensitivity of their positions, members of the O5 Council must not come into direct contact with any anomalous object, entity or phenomenon. In addition, the identity of all members of the O5 Council is secret. all council members are listed only by their numerical designations (O5-1 to O5-14.)

Only O5-14 knows about location-0
