10 Ways to Demonstrate Above and Beyond - Category 3 of the NISP Enhancement

Category 3 of the NISP Enhancement covers Security Education: Information/Product Sharing Within the Community.  This focuses on the FSO providing security education peers and other FSOs outside of their organization. This is a security community event where contractors and government managers can learn from each other. Think Society of Industrial Security, American Society of Industrial Security, or other professional organization level event. Or it can be a smaller venue. Either way, involve others outside of your organization. This demonstrates contribution to the community, a pursuit of improving national security, and helps quantify going above and beyond. For example, an FSO uses their facility, creates an agenda and executes a security conference or training event. Or, committees can be formed to share the tasks. Education of this magnitude has tremendous value as the security community learns from experiences and examples of their peers and applies them at their own organizations
Here are some recommendations on how to provide that training:
  •        Demonstrate how to conduct on the spot security inspections
  •      Introduce how your company receives classified material and enters it into an information management system (IMS)
  •          Compare benefits of different IMS vendors
  •          Hold a class on using Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS)
  •          Conduct security refresher training for the security community
  •          Demonstrate unique and successful training strategies and programs
  •          Host an Industrial Security Professional Exam training session or study group
  •          Have a classified marking seminar
  •          Show others how to prepare classified items for shipment
  •          Provide training on how to read, understand and implement a DD Form 254

Training opportunities abound. Each cleared contractor has unique challenges and opportunities. Creating a training seminar where experiences can be shared benefits the entire community and each FSO can learn from another’s experiences.
