Abstract : Professionalization of the security workforce had been discussed for at least 20 years. But starting in 2008, the Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) embraced the idea and led the charge. CDSE launched a three-pronged Security Professional Education Development (SPeD) Program consisting of security education, training, and certification. Five years later, CDSE has advanced in each of its mission areas. In fiscal year 2013, CDSE completed its education curriculum, achieved accreditations, expanded and updated training offerings (instructor-led courses, eLearning courses, shorts, toolkits and webinars) and deployed several certifications. These priorities were among the top of many accomplishments achieved by Defense Security Service (DSS) and are particularly noteworthy due to the presence of sequestration, furloughs, hiring freezes, and reduced budgets.
