New Counterintelligence Awareness and Security Brief Course

The Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) recently launched the Counterintelligence Awareness and Security Brief course (CI112.16) which can be viewed on both the Security Training, Education, and Professionalization Portal (STEPP) and Open eLearning. This course provides a Facility Security Officer (FSO) an off-the-shelf brief to meet the National Industrial Security Program Manual (NISPOM) requirement for an initial or annual security brief. The course emphasizes the foreign threat, foreign collection methods, vulnerabilities, insider threat, and reporting procedures. The target audience for this course is the cleared defense contractor employees; however, it can also be used by any security officer delivering a security briefing. Register for the course through STEPP or Open eLearning site.
