CDSE has recently updated the NISP Self-Inspection Course, which introduces the requirements to conduct a self-inspection.  Content includes preparing for a self-inspection, methods used to conduct a self-inspection, activities involved when performing a self-inspection, and actions taken once a self-inspection is complete.  The Self-Inspection Handbook is also introduced.  The course may be found at https://www.cdse.edu/Training/eLearning/IS130/
