An Insider Threat
Any person with authorized access to any United States Government resources such as personnel, equipment, networks or systems, with a malicious threat, wittingly or unwittingly, who intends to do harm to the security of the United States or that organization.
Detecting an Insider Threat is identifying and/or describing the different behavioral indicators of people who become an insider threat.
Behavioral Indicators include but not limited to:
Not every person who exhibits these identifying indicators are involved with illicit behavior, but most who have been caught were later found to have displayed one or more of these indicators.
Deter an Insider Threat
All reports are held with strict confidentiality and the details are shared only with the minimum number of people required to complete the investigation. Determinations are made within that investigation on elevating that reporting obligation to the proper authorities (DSS/FBI).
REMEMBER – Report any indicators to your Insider Threat Program Senior Official or your security team without fear of reprisal at any time.
Mitigate an Insider Threat
Involve different departments within the Insider threat program for early detection (IT/Legal/Human Resource, etc.) via your Insider Threat Program Plan
In addition to this training, additional resources can be found at the Center For Development of Security Excellence at www.cdse.edu or you can contact your security team.
