Counterintelligence Education and Awareness: Know the Risk – Raise Your Shield NEW
In response to the Office of Personnel Management data breach, through which sensitive personal information of approximately 22 million Americans was compromised, the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive developed a training video entitled “Know the Risk - Raise Your Shield: Human Targeting.” This video is to sensitize those affected by the data breach on how you can recognize if you are being targeted by foreign intelligence service operatives and what steps can be taken to minimize the risk of becoming a victim. This information is important for all government and contractor personnel. Supervisors, should view the video and encourage your employees to watch it share it with family and friends. For questions, contact Counterintelligence Special Agents Art Payton or Kim Saxon.

As part of a strategic objective to enhance PIV smartcard usage, the Information Technology and Communications Division (ITCD) is continuing the effort to reduce the number of RSA SecurID Tokens at NASA HQ in phases. The ultimate goal is to resolve all exceptions (i.e., the technical need to use a token) and eliminate tokens altogether. This will provide cost savings to HQ, ensure compliancy with federal mandates for improved security, and allow users to take advantage of advanced technologies available. All HQ personnel are encouraged to turn in tokens that are no longer utilized. Visit the HQ Token Phase-Out Project Web page for details.
