New SAP Security Awareness Game

The Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) has just released “SAP Stacks,” a new security awareness game integrating commonly used Special Access Program terms and definitions. The SAP Stacks word game can be found here.

New Industrial Security Word Searches

CDSE has just released three more word searches! These word search puzzles are not only fun but give you a clear understanding of the meaning of the terms you will encounter throughout the National Industrial Security Program (NISP). Learning these terms will help you understand the “why” behind your NISP Operating Manual requirements. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy a good word search puzzle? Visit the games page to check them out

New Counter Proliferation Course Coming Soon

Counter Proliferation, or “CP,” is a growing, emerging discipline in the national security community. CP represents the actions taken to defeat the threat and/or use of weapons of mass destruction against the United States and our military forces, friends, and allies.

This summer, CDSE will release a new 45-minute eLearning course for Facility Security Officers (FSOs) and security managers to learn the basics of CP and to be able to apply export control safeguards to determine if an export is allowed. The course is designed to help students define and describe CP, recognize partnering organizations, understand policy guidance, demonstrate an understanding of export permission guidelines, and explain steps used to prevent and report export control violations.

Supply Chain Integrity Acquisition Resources

The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and the Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) partnered to improve the acquisition community’s knowledge of security best practices and the security community’s knowledge of the acquisition process, to include supply chain risk management. The goal is to ensure acquisition and security professionals have access to needed training and resources to support security as the foundation of the acquisition process to enable the development of uncompromised products critical to our country’s national security and economy. Access the Acquisition Toolkit for available resources to support that goal.
