Description: This course specifically addresses the intentions and capabilities of the three to five most significant adversaries to the United States and to DOD.

The course addresses counterintelligence, counterterrorism, insider threats, and threats to critical information systems. In addition, this course covers such critical threats as embezzlement, physical sabotage, violence in the workplace by disgruntled employees, and others that must be addressed by the senior security manager.
