LENGTH: 1 day
This course takes attendees through a visual presentation of the spies and operational sites used by foreign intelligence services based in the Washington, DC area and operating in Maryland.
Specific areas of Maryland became known as "Spy Country” to counterintelligence professionals because of the propensity of intelligence officers to use specific locations for clandestine operational acts.
Maryland is a target-rich environment for foreign intelligence officers intent on collecting information, plans and technology.
Maryland receives 20 percent of all Department of Defense contracts. One of the largest industries in the state is the defense industry, and combined with the unusually large number of government agencies and military bases, the premier schools which attract foreign students from all over the world, and the growing high-tech corridors, Maryland is a prime target today for any foreign intelligence service.
The goal of SpyMaryland course is to enhance the awareness of this foreign intelligence threat and recognize and defend against these dangers.
SpyMaryland is the perfect security awareness class that your employees are sure to remember AND is a great way to satisfy your yearly security awareness briefing requirement.
