(ASD(C3I)), through the Security Education Advisory
Group (SEAG), those courses and/or materials that the
focal point believes should be included in the master
data base to be maintained by the Department of Defense
Security Institute (DoDSI).   A focal point shall also
identify to the ASD(C3I), through the SEAG, those instances
where quality education and/or training courses are
required, but are not available, and make recommendations
concerning the nature and content of education and/or
training courses needed to fulfill.

3.2.  Professional Development.    Those aspects of
career development concerned with the education and
training of individuals to improve their performance
in given positions and specialties.

3.3.  Security Countermeasures (SCM).    Those activities

systems, or material as well as the physical protection
of DoD personnel and other valuable assets.

3.4.  Security Countermeasures (SCM) Education and Training.
   Those formal activities, products, and services intended

or raise their level of motivation, performance, or
awareness with respect to the protection of classified
information, systems, or material as well as the physical
protection of DoD personnel and other valuable assets.

3.5.  Technical Security.    The SCM; i.e., technical
surveillance countermeasures, information systems security,
and counter-signals intelligence, that operate against
unauthorized intercept of unencrypted information during

and electro-mechanical devices to safeguard classified
or controlled information and material.


It is DoD policy that:

4.1.  Uniform, standardized, effective, and cost-efficient

and maintained to meet national and DoD-level SCM objectives
and both near-term and long-term professional development
requirements of DoD civilian, military, and contractor
personnel charged with the execution of SCM responsibilities.

DoD SCM education, training, and professional development
support.   Where a DoD Component is assigned focal point
responsibility for education and training for a particular
SCM program, the nature and extent of support to be
provided by the DoDSI shall be determined by the ASD(C3I)
in coordination with the focal point.   DoDSI shall
establish and maintain a listing of recommended SCM
education and training courses and materials that will
be provided to DoD Components, DoD contractors, and
other Federal Agencies upon request.

4.3.  The DoD Polygraph Institute (DoDPI) shall function
as the sole source for basic and advanced psychophysiological
detection of deception (PDD) education and training
for DoD polygraph examiners and shall conduct an aggressive
research program to ensure that the DoD PDD Program

and technology.   DoDPI may support other Federal Agencies
on either a reimbursable or space available basis.

4.4.  Focal points designated under this Directive shall
monitor and review education, training, and professional
development courses and materials available in their
respective areas of responsibility, and recommend to
the SEAG those courses and materials they believe should
be adopted for use by the DoD Components.   Where a
need for education and training support exists, but
no courses and materials are currently available, focal
points shall develop and submit to the SEAG recommendations
for proposed courses and materials to meet requirements.
