Antiterrorism Awareness Month
August is Antiterrorism Awareness Month which focuses on raising awareness concerning the threat of terrorism, encouraging vigilance, and reporting of potential threats. Defensive awareness and personal security are the responsibility of all DoD personnel. To learn how to make you and your family less vulnerable to terrorists, review “A Self-Help Guide to Antiterrorism.”
Last month, we released the CDSE Pulse, a monthly security awareness newsletter that features topics of interest to the security community. In addition, we share upcoming courses, webinars, and conferences. The July newsletter focused on “Travel Security Awareness.” Check out all the newsletters in CDSE’s Electronic Library or subscribe/update your current subscription to get the newsletter sent directly to your inbox by submitting your email address from the CDSE News webpage!
