As always, Detexify is a great help here, or even the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List. You are looking for \not\subset:

B \not\subset A


-

You can use \not\subset, or \not\subseteq, or \nsubseteq (requires the amssymb package):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

$A \not\subset B\qquad A \nsubseteq B\qquad A \not\subseteq B$

\end{document}


The question How to look up a math symbol? could be helpful for you in a similar situation.

Simply use $B \not \subset A$:

\not can create negations of many relations. =)
