Sign Up for Upcoming DoD Security Speaker Series on January 28

CDSE invites you to join us Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. EST for a live security chat. This month's special guest is Ms. Angela Stow Jago, Chief of the Unauthorized Disclosure (UD) Program Management Office (PMO) for the Security Policy and Oversight Division (SPOD), Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (OUSD(I)). Join us and find out more about the Department of Defense (DoD) UD program and the critical role you play in it. Sign up for this and future Speaker Series webinars.

The DoD Security Speaker Series delivers live, one-on-one interviews with knowledgeable, respected leaders in the DoD security community. Speakers discuss trending topic areas such as insider threat, personnel security investigations, counterintelligence, and more. Unlike a formal briefing or webinar, speakers are unscripted. Conversation is driven by hot topics, and the audience may ask questions.

Conversation with a DoD security community leader can provide you with the latest information on trending security topics and a perspective not attainable through other delivery platforms. The one-on-one format offers opportunities to discuss some finer points of policy, today's security environment, and what we need know that may not commonly be covered. The Speaker Series also provides a forum for engaging with a leader with whom you may rarely interact.
