New Counterintelligence Job Aid

Effective Insider Threat Programs go beyond the minimum requirements to infuse a culture of vigilance throughout the year. CDSE is committed to providing timely and relevant opportunities for insider threat training and awareness for cleared industry, component Insider Threat Programs and the general workforce. This month, we are focused on the prevention of insider threats by recognizing the potential targeting of US persons by foreign intelligence entities. The new CI job aid "Foreign Intelligence Entity (FIE) Targeting and Recruitment" provides your workforce with an understanding of the adversary's methodology and the need to report suspicious information.

A New Semester Starts April 25, 2016! Register Now for Upcoming CDSE Tuition Free Education Classes!

Security professionals throughout the Federal Government are taking advantage of CDSE's curriculum of semester long, graduate-level courses designed to prepare DoD security professionals for leadership positions and responsibilities. Registration is open for the summer semester that runs April 25 - August 19, 2016. Learn more about the available courses.

These courses will enhance your analytical thinking and problem solving skills. In addition, they will help you gain critical knowledge about principle concepts and facts that anyone who wants to be a future leader within DoD should know. The courses include reading, research, and writing assignments similar to a three credit, collegiate-level course. A significant time commitment is required but the commitment will pay off.

The courses are online, tuition free, and allow students the flexibility to collaborate with each other and Subject Matter Expert Instructors when they want. All of the courses have received college credit recommendations from the American Council on Education College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT).

To register, please log into STEPP . If you have any questions, or need additional information, contact the CDSE Education Division at dss.cdseeducation@mail.mil.
