Defense Contractors: How SEAD 3 puts you in the reporting business


If you're a federal contractor, your reporting requirements just changed -- dramatically.  The days of perhaps one report to security per employee every year is over. 

Security Agent Executive Directive 3 (SEAD 3) just dropped from our friends at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). SEAD 3 became effective June 12, 2017 and requires contractors holding sensitive positions or who have access to any type of classified information to report a variety of life events, including all non-work related foreign travel and substantive foreign contacts to their local security office. 

This is well beyond the NISPOM or security clearance reporting we're used to and the time to get smart on it is now. Keep reading to learn more.

Introducing the ThreatSwitch Inbox

When our team thinks about the goals of ThreatSwitch, it is to make the tough job of a security manager a little bit easier. That goal starts even before a security manager logs in, when the question arises "What do I need to get done today?" In order to help answer that question, we're releasing the first version of the ThreatSwitch Inbox.

Contract Organization

Contracts are an essential part of organizing security compliance. Now in ThreatSwitch you have the tools to better organize and sort your contracts by assigning contracts as "Prime" or "Subcontract"

We're also excited to announce that you can now control when welcome emails are sent. This should be helpful for customers who want to send a formal internal communication before employees receive login credentials.
