If any of the documents you carry are marked For Official Use Only (FOUO), you can restrict access to anyone whom you deem does not have a valid need-to-know. FOUO is the same category of information as the TSA's beloved SSI. If any of your material is proprietary or competition-sensitive, you're obligated to protect it under the Procurement Integrity Act. That means that anyone viewing it must sign a non-disclosure agreement. This is a big deal. When I was in the private sector until about a year ago, I carried NDAs in my briefcase and got to the point where I pulled one out for a screener to sign. He called the supervisor over and they agreed that they could feel the outside of the envelope to make sure there weren't any WMD in there. (They had already x-rayed the briefcase.)
