I want to make a webpage listing of the many different security manager classes.  We all need to give classes, and make "new" classes. Lets quit reinventing the wheel. Lets quit parking the classes where they get dusty and help all in the security business.
IF everyone can send info to me at: JRL

Send the title, the area of concern, number of Power Point Slides, or Word pages,  #MSWORD  or #PPT, then a good descriptive paragraph.  Also the date or apx date of last update and a name and email address for the POC who can send the briefing. Phone numbers are optional. Cut & paste what is below into your email and fill in the proper info.


DocumentTitle - Date

Subject/Area of Concern

# of slides/pages & format, *.ppt/*.doc/other - (size in KB or MB)

 Paragraph description

POC name & email address (& phone #)


**IF everyone uses this is the same format...then this could be easy for me... otherwise I will ask for a raise from G2online.....double nothing...still have nothing. So, lets try to make this simple and easy. --- Do not send any briefings covering AR 380-5 unless it was after the SEP 2000 release of the new Reg.
This should be a help to all of us. 


Some samples below on what others have out there, but DSS Academy has some great material.


SPED will be the future for this profession.


What is SPēD?

SPēD is an acronym for the Security Professional Education Development Program. The SPēD Certification Program is part of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) initiative to professionalize the security workforce. This initiative is intended to ensure that there is a common set of competencies among security practitioners that promotes interoperability, facilitates professional development and training, and develops a workforce of certified security professionals.

Kent Center Occasional Papers


The Kent Center, a component of the employee-only Sherman Kent School for Intelligence Analysis at CIA University, strives to promote the theory, doctrine, and practice of intelligence analysis.

One of the Center's primary goals is to build and share a comprehensive body of professional knowledge.

The Kent Center Occasional Papers listed below contribute to the ongoing development of that body of knowledge, offering an opportunity for intelligence professionals and interested colleagues-in an unofficial and unfettered vehicle-to debate and advance the theory and practice of intelligence analysis.

Statements of fact, opinion, or analysis expressed in Occasional Papers are those of the authors. See the disclaimer below for complete caveats regarding the content of the papers.

In addition to the Kent Center Occasional Papers, the Kent School, the Center for the Study of Intelligence, and others have sought to make available electronically almost all Studies in Intelligence articles, including those formerly classified. Toward that end, we have created for use by scholars, students and other interested users an archive of and indexes for Studies in Intelligence articles related to intelligence analysis and operations. These articles are representative of the accumulated wisdom on intelligence spanning the almost 50-year existence of Studies in Intelligence. The Kent Center hopes these articles will stimulate fresh and creative outside discussion and writing on the practice and teaching of intelligence that will help CIA officers and the CIA University advance their professional understanding.



All statements of fact, opinion, or analysis expressed in Occasional Papers are those of the authors. They do not necessarily reflect official positions or views of the Kent School, the Central Intelligence Agency, or any other US Government entity, past or present.

Nothing in the contents should be construed as asserting or implying US Government endorsement of an article's factual statements and interpretations.
