Information for the CIO, CSO, FSO, ISSO and other security professionals. Understanding NISPOM and ITAR compliance is tough. With over 12,000 cleared defense contractors, a majority of those don't have a security staff. We'll hope to help fill the gap. From security clearances to performing on classified contracts, you can find help here.
Cleared contractors are required to brief their cleared employees every year. It’s easy when there is a Facility Security Officer (FSO) on site. However, companies consisting of one to a few hundred employees may have FSOs designated in addition to regular duties. COOs, engineers, CFOs, HR and other professionals don’t have time to create and execute training while performing on contract.
An FSO can spend several hours designing training. At $35.00 per manager work hour, that could end up costing at least $150.00, not including the costs associated with brining the FSO off a contract. Our low cost, high value training package allows you to concentrate on your core competencies while we provide your required training. Our NISPOM Training contains requirements for the Annual Security Awareness and Initial Security Training. Just download our slides and lead the discussion, the notes are already filled out and ready to read.
FSOs have a huge responsibility to protect classified information. As such, these FSOs may be owners, engineers, human resources or appointed employees with other additional duties. If you are an appointed FSO with other duties, you might be just too busy to create a training program. Red Bike Publishing can help. We’ve created an easy to use presentation that you can download and present. Notes are available straight from the NISPOM. You can read them word for word or you can tailor the presentation to meet your organizational needs. This presentation will help you meet the National Industrial Security Program (NISPOM) and Defense Security Services (DSS) Requirements. Take a look at the sample presentations on the side of the page.
NISPOM Initial Security Training /Refresher Security Training.
The main presentation is great for initial training or for refresher annual security awareness training required of all cleared employees. (NISPOM 3-103 and 3-104).
When you invest with this training program you will receive a link for the main presentation and a quarterly email link for the topical training. Topics include NISPOM requirements:
