New Industrial Security Awareness Game

CDSE has just released a new word search puzzle (#5)! 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). Understanding those terms will help you understand the “why” behind your NISPOM requirements. Besides, who doesn’t enjoy a good word search puzzle? Visit the webpage to check it out!
