Protecting Critical Infrastructure Against Insider Threats – DHS Online Course

A new DHS online independent study course titled Protecting Critical Infrastructure Against Insider Threats (IS-915) is now available on the FEMA training site. The one-hour online course was developed by the DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection in partnership with the FEMA Emergency Management Institute, critical infrastructure owners and operators, and other Federal and state agencies.  The course also offers 0.1 CEUs.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure Against Insider Threats enhances awareness of the potential threats to critical infrastructure from malicious actions taken by those inside the organization. The course also provides guidance on how to identify insider threats to critical infrastructure and an overview of common characteristics and indicators associated with malicious insiders.  This course is part of the larger Critical Infrastructure Security Awareness series that offers independent, self-study opportunities across a broad spectrum of security related issues.

Please share this information with your water systems, TA providers, and colleagues with an interest in critical infrastructure security.  There are no prerequisites for this course.  However, DHS recommends that participants should take IS-906, Workplace Security Awareness, as a foundation preparation for this course.
