CON 0840 Vendor Threat Mitigation
Established by DoD Directive 3000.16 in 2022, Vendor Threat Mitigation (VTM) is the Department’s program to identify and manage threats posed by vendors supporting operations. This course contributes to the efforts currently underway in the Department to implement new policy, codify existing best practices, and address gaps in authorities and tools related to VTM.
CON 0840 provides students with a broad introduction to the policies and functions for VTM and the importance of considering the potential risks introduced by malign actors in campaign and contingency operations. The course defines VTM, reviews roles and responsibilities for various government stakeholders involved, and provides examples of VTM policies from various Combatant Commands and operations.
As with the suite of other courses produced in collaboration with DAU on Operational Contract Support-related topics (CON 0800, 0810, 0820, and 0830), this course will provide students with easy-to-follow self-paced instruction and engaging exercises to help apply new knowledge and skills in the workplace.
