Security Consulting

Squadron Defense Group can help your organization create and maintain an integrated security program – whether you are making your initial efforts to comply with NISPOM and Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) requirements, or have been cleared for years. We can strengthen your security program with policies, processes and procedures developed with more than a decade’s worth of experience.

Facility Security Officer (FSO) Services

Many cleared companies face logistical challenges maintaining NISP compliance in the areas of personnel clearance and Facility Clearance processing, education materials and records maintenance. Our staff has years of FSO experience and our services are centered on policies, procedures and training for compliance with government security requirements. SDG’s employees intimately understand the rules and regulations of dozens of agencies, and help our clients quickly and efficiently put compliant facility security programs into place.

SDG can serve as your virtual security department. For companies that have a Facility Security Officer, but do not need a full-time security administrator, SDG can provide the management and administration to plan, develop, monitor, and continually assess security operations. SDG provides or assists your staff with FSO services, daily personnel and facility security management tasks. We also detect adverse security problems and give direction and advice on corrective actions with specific recommendations, consistent with contractual and regulatory requirements, for solutions that are scalable and economical to the needs of our customers.
