Course Description

This workshop is designed for acquisition personnel requiring intermediate-level knowledge of program protection and system security engineering (SSE). Participants are expected to have knowledge of the DoD’s systems engineering management processes and application of systems engineering across the system development life cycle. This workshop will instruct students on program protection and how to develop the elements included in a Program Protection Plan (PPP), to include its tables and sections. Follow-on, tailorable workshops are available on request.

Learning Objectives
