Some security training and briefings are very discouraging for the work force. Many times, the training is the exact same video or presentation used year after year.
So, if you go to my website www.redbikepublishing.com, you might find training and tests that do ask those types of questions.
This topic is specifically about how to make your security training more effective for your work force. There are two types of training: for security professionals and for the workforce.
So here are three problems I see with the current security training trend:
1. Lack of training resources
What is concrete is that there are various training topics required for cleared defense contractor employees, they include:
2. One Size Fits all
There are many resources that busy security managers can draw upon to solve the problem of training the workforce. There are downloadable training topics available from vendors and government websites. The problem is, the training never grows up or ever requires growth from members of the cleared workforce.
3. Making a nation of Security Professionals
The very resources we use to present to our cleared force comes from security professional targeted websites. Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency trains security professionals and their courses are designed for that purposes. Because of problem statements 1 and 2, we are forced to use these canned presentations. In here the workforce is tested on their knowledge of security forms, how to conduct security investigations, and how to challenge classification. In fact they need to understand better that a cover sheet exists, how to recognize and report a violation, and what to do if something is over or under classified.
1. Begin with the Contract Security Classification Specification or DD Form 254.
2. Incorporate workforce peers, supervisors and program managers.
