Ever wonder how to prepare for the annual Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA)?

Well this book is a step by step manual on how to conduct a self-assessment and prepare for the review.

The National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) requires all participants in the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) to conduct their own self-inspections to include an insider threat self-assessment. This Self-Inspection Handbook is designed as a job aid to assist you in complying with these requirements.

It is not intended to be used as a checklist only; rather, it is intended to assist you in developing a viable self-inspection program specifically tailored to the classified needs of your cleared company. You will also find we have included various techniques that will help enhance the overall quality of your self-inspection.

Each topic of the self-inspection crosswalks against the NISPOM to ensure all required areas are addressed. This book is full of inspection topics, questions and ideas to improve your security program. It makes a great training aide for security professionals and helps cleared defense contractors remain successful.

Purpose of a Self-Inspection

Self-inspections provide insight into your security program. It provides you an opportunity to look at the security procedures established at your company and validate that they not only meet NISPOM requirements but they are being effectively implemented by your cleared employees. This is your chance to take an honest look at what your company is doing to protect our national security: to see what is working, what is working well and what you may need to change.

Remember you should not be conducting your self-inspection just because the NISPOM requires you to. You should be conducting your self-inspection to ensure the continued protection of our national security, our country, its citizens, and most importantly our military service men and women.

This book provides and excellent way to set up your security program, conduct a risk assessment and check results.
