SPēD Accounts Migrating From STEPP to MSC

The Security Professional Education Development (SPēD) Certification Program will migrate account creation and profile management from Security Training, Education, and Professionalization (STEPP) to My SPēD Certification (MSC). On this platform, users will immediately receive an electronic certificate and digital badge after passing their assessment, which they can share across social media including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. MSC will be the only location for new and existing account creations.

Current MSC users: The migration will not affect profiles already created in MSC. You will be required to update your profile and complete several new data fields of information upon log in.

CDSE will send reminders and updates as necessary. Please continue to monitor (www.cdse.edu) and subscribe for email updates.

New Insider Threat Security Training Video

CDSE recently released a new security training video, “Behavioral Indicators of an Active Shooter.”  The video concerns a real-life example of an insider displaying concerning behavioral indicators.  This individual would eventually carry out a grave act of kinetic violence.  Access the video.
