"Thwarting the Enemy: Providing Counterintelligence and Threat Awareness to the Defense Industrial Base," was developed for employees working at cleared defense contractor facilities. This eLearning training will allow employees to complete the training at any time to meet their annual Threat Awareness training requirement. The emphasis of the training is to make employees aware of potential threats directed against U.S. technology; it also explains common suspicious activities which they should be reporting to the Facility Security Officer (FSO) in compliance with NISPOM 3-107 and 1-302. FSOs are encouraged to use this Defense Security Service (DSS) Counterintelligence Office sponsored training to meet the Security Training and Briefings requirement outlined in NISPOM Chapter 3.
