General IMPACT

The Value of NSI's IMPACT Training

Developed By and For Defense Industry and Government Security Professionals 

Your Security Program
NSI’s IMPACT program delivers expert training on critical aspects of your security program. From NISPOM compliance, security clearance processing, risk management framework, adjudication, CUI, insider threats, security awareness and education, CMMC, Trusted Workforce 2.0 and much more. 

Return to work with new ideas, best practices and battle-tested solutions to reduce risks to classified and sensitive information from a growing array of security threats.

Your Cross-Functional Effectiveness
NSI IMPACT training is also designed to empower security leaders to become trusted, effective business partners who add value to the mission of their company or organization. Learn the secret to collaborating and persuasively communicating with colleagues outside the security function. 

Comprehensive Preparation
IMPACT attendees are immersed in a learning experience with three main points of emphasis:

  • Security Threats to U.S. Industrial Base and Government
  • Critical NISPOM Compliance & Know-How
  • Security Practice, Leadership & Know-How

Return From IMPACT Prepared:

  • With the information and examples you need to persuasively explain to those outside the security function why a security program like yours is important and necessary
  • Ready to navigate changing government requirements, processes and systems
  • Armed with the practical guidance and best practices you need to implement an efficient, effective, Cogswell-worthy security program.

IMPACT Program Components

Former National Counterintelligence and Security Center Director William Evanina will give the keynote address at IMPACT 2023.

I. Expert Briefings on Security Threats to U.S. Industrial Base and Government

These sessions are designed to help you understand and powerfully explain to colleagues outside the security function why a security program like yours is necessary. You will broaden your understanding of the risks and vulnerabilities faced by the U.S. government and defense industrial base so you can proactively advise leadership and implement timely solutions. You will return to work with an informed perspective on the strategy, tactics and evolving nature of global threats that make a security program like yours necessary.

Leadership and on the ground operational support will be on hand at IMPACT 2023 to share vision, plans, gather feedback and participate in Q&A sessions.  

II. Critical NISPOM Compliance & Know-How

These sessions are designed to help you navigate changes in NISP requirements, processes and systems. Get all the information you need to stay in compliance, achieve superior ratings, prepare for coming changes. Hear directly from key leaders in government oversight agencies, get an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas, plan ahead for upcoming requirements and changes, understand the current status of projects and timelines, discuss pain points and solutions with colleagues from other organizations.

IMPACT 2023 features an executive panel discussion on how security can effectively collaborate with other functions. Along with workshops on security awareness and insider threat program best practices. 

III. Security Practice, Leadership & Know-How

These sessions are designed to deliver candid advice and practical guidance for efficient, effective program management. Maximize your budget, resources and personal productivity by returning to work with new ideas, best practices and lessons learned from colleagues. You will learn how to be a more persuasive advocate, how to establish trust, and how to position yourself as a partner and problem solver rather than be perceived as simply an enforcer. 

IMPACT Program Objectives

while reducing risks to classified and sensitive information from a growing array of security threats.

I. Aquire the knowledge to persuasively explain to colleagues outside the security function why a program like yours is important and necessary.

II. Get the details and contacts necessary to navigate critical changing government requirements, processes and systems.

III. Develop your ability to lead an excellent program. Position yourself as a collaborative partner and problem solver.
