Access CDSE’s recently updated Cybersecurity courses: Applying Assessment & Authorization (A&A) in the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) (CS250.16) and Introduction to the NISP RMF A&A Process (CS150.16). The updates reflect policy changes involving the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) document and changes to the DCSA Assessment and Authorization Process Manual (DAAPM). 

New Counterintelligence Shorts

Based on input from our annual curriculum review and a training needs analysis, CDSE developed four new shorts to assist security professionals. The Academic Solicitation short enables the workforce to identify academic solicitation methods, determine countermeasures, and report suspicious activity. The Counterintelligence Concerns for National Security Adjudicators short addresses counterintelligence concerns for Adjudicators and explains concerns that may affect national security determinations. The Protecting Microelectronics short considers what microelectronic are, DOD’s microelectronic needs, existing threats, vulnerabilities, and associated reporting requirements. Finally, the Talking with Academia About Security short informs Research Security, Facility Security Officers (FSOs), Counterintelligence Special Agents (CISAs), and other security personnel working with scientists, engineers, and others within cleared academia about the unique challenges of talking to academics about security. Access all of our CI shorts
