    Security Clearance Justification and FSO training

    This podcast is based on information from our NISPOM fundamentals course at https://www.bennettinstitute.com

    Podcast discusses:
    Holding a security clearance is a privilege. The awardee is able to perform on classified contracts where they would not otherwise be able. However, some defense contractors mistakenly assume that they can request a Facility Security Clearance (FCL) for business development purposes or to better position themselves future classified contract opportunities. Though that is not how FCLs are awarded, there is a process and methodology to justify the FCL. 
     The FSO has marching orders to develop and implement security programs to protect classified information. But, how effective is security policy if it is written by security and posted only in the security office?     Identify items, events, and issues that security can help withLook at upcoming contracts, business development goals, program requirements and then implement

    If you are a new FSO, there is no reason to travel your journey alone. You may recruit fellow employees to assist with the tasks. 

    Lately, contract language requires the contractor to conduct tasks in support of Program Protection Planning (PPP), Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM), Criticality Analyses (CA), and providing Program Protection Plan Implementation Plans (PPIP). These requirements include language that requires developing PPIPs, protecting critical components, developing SCRM plans, quantifying risk to the supply chain, vetting vendors and so much more. 
    The ISP and ISOC Master exam prep for NISPOM 32 CFR Part 117 is now available. If you plan to test in winter 2022 or later, make this version part of your study plans.
    Check it out.

    While this may not be an organic capability for most organizations, there are many small companies that can step up and provide the necessary guidance or share in the workload.
