Can you keep a secret? They can.

"They" are some of today's top-secret employees. Whether they're tracking down terrorists, holding back hackers, protecting politicians or withholding this year's Oscar winners, these folks have all perfected the art of keeping information under wraps.

While "top-secret" may bring to mind memories of a jet-setting, James Bond, "shaken, not stirred, variety," not all duties for top-secret jobs parallel the exciting lives of spies and secret agents featured in mainstream media and cinematography. Still, there is something to be said for mystery and a job that in some instances can really mean a matter of life or death.
