The Defense Security Service (DSS), formerly known as the Defense Investigative Service (DIS) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense (DoD). DSS makes its contribution to the National Security Community by conducting personnel security investigations and providing industrial security products and services, as well as offering comprehensive security education training to DoD and other government entities. To complement its three primary missions: the Personnel Security Investigations Program (PSI); the National Industrial Security Program (NISP); and the Security Education, Training and Awareness Program, DSS offers the unique advantage of integrating counterintelligence into its core security disciplines through training programs, policy development, and operational support to its field elements.
