Thwarting the Enemy
Counterintelligence and Threat Awareness Information to the Defense Industrial Base

"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.

NOTE 1: If you are completing this course as a prerequisite for a CDSE instructor-led course or as part of a specific CDSE training curriculum, you must take the final exam in STEPP to receive credit for completion. The passing grade is (75%) for the examination. You may register for the exam via STEPP at http://www.cdse.edu/stepp/index.html.

NOTE 2: The course includes a printable certificate which can serve as evidence that a student completed the course. When a student takes the course using this link, CDSE will not maintain any record of that student by name or any personally identifiable information. If the student needs documentation that he or she has completed the course, he or she will have to print the certificate at the end of the course.

NOTE 3: Each course provides either a closed caption button (located at the bottom of the course) or a transcript button (located at the top or bottom of the course).
