FSOs have a huge responsibility to protect contractor information. Just like an Olympic team may protect their athlete and performance details, the FSO should determine who is on the team, and which team members have access to information. The FSO should not stop work, but facility contract requirements without jamming up the employees with unobtainable security procedures.

This is a presentation of how to be a world class FSO
From How to Get U.S. Government Contracts and Classified Work

  1. Influence at all levels
  2. Integrate security at all levels
  3. Be fiscally responsible 
  4.  Be flexible, but knowledgeable

Additionally, we have NISPOM fundamentals training perfect for studying and applying to your CDC facility. purposeful execution of Foreign travel pre-briefings-When employees travel to a foreign country, they may be targeted to provide sensitive information. A threat and/or defensive briefing should be provided to all cleared employees per NISPOM. (NISPOM Training). The briefings should be documented with signatures, dates and contents of briefings for presentation to Defense Security Services (DSS) industrial security representatives.

There is a lot of debate about professional certification. Currently, the drive and motivation for facility security officers (FSO) and security specialists to become Industrial Security Professional (ISP) certified is still self-motivation and not yet a requirement.
