Creating a Positive, Pro-Security Culture

Are the members of your security team the “bad guys” in your organization? Creating the right company culture requires more than the popular “just-in-time” training. Security should be a habit – not a hindrance. Everyone needs to understand the importance of security in everything that you do.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1523390555511{background-color: #5e5e5e !important;}”][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Protecting the Privacy of Your Employees
Recent news stories have attempted to piece together how a former CIA officer’s SF-86 ended up in the hands of a super PAC.
Abigail Spanberger, who is running for Congress in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, reported at the end of August that a super PAC got its hands on her entire federal security clearance application.
“OPM rules state unequivocally that SF-86s are not to be filed in the Official Personnel Folder.” 
While people are still trying to get to the bottom of the incident, it appears that Spanberger’s SF-86 was released due to simple oversight. Her application was in her personnel folder, which was released, in its entirety, in response to a FOIA request.
Where do you store your SF-86s? Are you putting the privacy of your employees at risk?

Make Your Security Training “Snackable”
While you may have to follow certain guidelines when it comes to how often your employees must complete different types of security training, there are usually no rules on breaking up the requirements.
Instead of holding a large, one-size-fits-all session or preparing a marathon web-based course, why not hold smaller, more targeted classes over the course of the year? Short, focused, and frequent security training sessions will help your employees stay consistently engaged in the security process.
Keep each session lively by mixing in interactive elements and updating your materials. The better and faster your information can be consumed, the easier it will be for your employees to digest and execute.
