Cleared contractors are required to brief their cleared employees upon hiring and provide training every year thereafter. It’s easy when there is a Facility Security Officer (FSO) on site. In that case the FSO is overhead and develops the training as part of their daily duties.

Just because an entity does business with the government and is cleared for classified work, doesn’t mean they have the same level of resources committed to security  as large enterprises do. It’s tempting to assume that every cleared contractor Facility Security Officer (FSO) as “appointed” by the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), is a full time dedicated employee who has time to attend professional organization meetings, is Industrial Security Professional (ISP) Certified, and fully comprehends International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR); it’s just not so.

Not all defense contractors are created equally. Cleared defense contractors may be approved to possess classified information on location with storage approval. Others may not have storage approval, but cleared to provide security clearances for classified performance at customer or other off site locations. Large defense contractors may have an entire staff devoted to the protection of classified information, physical security, operations security, contracts security, special access and etc. On the other hand, small contractors have equal responsibilities, but operate with just a few employees, on of which is appointed as FSO. That’s a lot for one to do…

Does your business have time to focus on training requirements?

Defense contractors and cleared contractors with one to a few hundred employees may have FSOs designated in addition to regular duties. COOs, engineers, CFOs, HR and other professionals don’t have time to create and execute training while performing on contract.

That’s where Red Bike Publishing can help.

Our low cost, high value training package allows you to concentrate on your core competencies while we provide your required training. Our NISPOM Training contains requirements for the Annual Security Awareness and Initial Security Training. Just download our slides and lead the discussion, the notes are already filled out and ready to read.

FSOs have a huge responsibility to protect classified information. As such, these FSOs may be owners, engineers, human resources or appointed employees with other additional duties. If you are an appointed FSO with other duties, you might be just too involved running your company to create a training program.

Red Bike Publishing can help. Jeffrey W. Bennett, SFPC, SAPPC, ISP is board certified to protect classified information. Together with industry experts, he created an easy to use presentation that you can download and deliver. Notes are available for you to read word for word or tailor the presentation to meet your organizational needs.

You focus on core competencies while we focus on ours

Cleared contractors have to follow NISPOM requirements to keep their security clearances. They have to keep their security clearances to perform on classified contracts. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to let someone else take care of your training needs?
Again, the training you download addresses NISPOM required topics. All you have to do is deliver to cleared employees. You can read it word for word, tailor the information for your mission, or simply let employees read the presentation themselves. It’s that easy.
