Is your FSO wearing multiple hats?
Is it cost-effective to hire a full time FSO if it is not a full time job?
Are you ready for your upcoming DSS Security audit?
Facility Security Officer Consulting
A common trend amongst many of our clients is the inability to maintain an effective and compliant Security program due to the same key issues:
- The FSO position is a part time role assumed by someone with an existing full time job and cannot get to all of the mandatory DSS requirements.
- The FSO does not have all the necessary experience to ensure that the program has been successfully implemented, the organization is ready for DSS audit, or that there is a strategic approach in place.
- The FSO does not have the time to perform tasks during peak periods.
The commonality they all share is that while the time it took to gain their cleared status was long and arduous, the time it takes to lose it is immediate.
The FSO has an overall individual responsibility for protecting classified information, and a contractual obligation to ensure the effective implementation of security requirements and procedures within a facility involved in classified projects. The FSO’s actions are vital to the overall efficiency of your company’s security program. The duties and responsibilities of the FSO are organized and controlled by Government requirements and regulations. Are you compliant?
