SAP Video Refresh

To keep security video learning fresh, the SAP Team posted two new eLearning videos:

  • SAP Security Incident – The Email: As a cleared employee or a FSO of a defense contractor, you could be the target of a request for information or direct request email. Watch the video to learn about a recent case involving illicit information collection by a foreign adversary. Then, follow the links to test your knowledge, and learn more.
  • SAP Security Incident – Bad Start: Some days it seems like things start off bad and continue to go downhill from there. Take a look at this video and see if you can identify what went wrong. Stop and think about what could be done to help prevent scenarios like this from happening in your program.

The videos will be refreshed in June. Check out our latest offerings here.

Upcoming Speaker Series

Join CDSE for our March Speaker Series:

DoD Unauthorized Disclosure Program Manager

Thursday, March 22, 2018

12:00 p.m. ET

The unauthorized disclosure (UD) of classified and controlled unclassified information (CUI) undermines the DoD mission, costs DoD resources, and erodes the public’s confidence and trust. In 2012, DoD established a “top down” approach to the identification, investigation, and reporting of UDs. The UD Program Management Office (PMO) was established within OUSD(I). CDSE hosts a discussion with DoD UD PMO.

Applied Research on Social Media and Security

Thursday, March 29, 2018

12:00 p.m. ET

Since 2009, the Defense Personnel and Security Research Center has studied publicly available social media as a data source for personnel security background investigations. While pilot studies have demonstrated the utility of this information, there are a number of legal and privacy concerns, and procedural requirements that must be addressed before social media information can be integrated into the DoD personnel security program. CDSE hosts a discussion with Ms. Andree Rose of the Defense Personnel and Security Research Center.
