The Silent And Damaging Threat From Within - The Insider Threat

Why Are Organizations So Vulnerable To The Insider Threat?

  • Insiders have already obtained a badge to access significant portions of an organization’s facilities, a login and password to access the network and significant amounts of an organizations data.

  • Insiders also know what data in an organization has the most value.

  • Insiders attempting to commit a malicious action against the government or businesses will exploit an organizations vulnerabilities and weaknesses that are many times overlooked or ignored, and will give the Malicious Insider the greatest chance of success, without being caught.

  • Insiders in most cases know what is checked and not checked, and know when they won't be checked or challenged.

 

 

 

Insider Threat Damages

  • The Insider Threat continues to be a serious problem for the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, Defense Industrial Base Contractors and businesses.

  • The damages caused to U.S. National Security and businesses by Malicious Insiders has been severe.

  • Not all Insider Threat incidents make the front page of news papers or the evening news, but they happen a lot more frequently then most people realize.

  • Insider Threat actions can compromise an organizations security, affect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of an organizations data, information systems and networks, and degrade an organizations ability to accomplish its mission or business function. In the Navy Yard shooting incident, life’s were lost.

  • Whether an organization has just 10 employees or 100,000, the Insider Threat is a security risk. Information is valuable and in many cases that’s what Malicious Insiders are after, whether it is Classified Information, Sensitive Information, Intellectual Property, Trade Secrets, PII, etc. In some cases Malicious Insiders have sabotaged networks, or destroyed information  systems or erased data.

  • The NITSIG has compiled some "Eye Opening" reports, surveys and incidents related to the Insider Threat problem.

 

 

 

National Insider Threat Special Interest Group (NITSIG)

  • Throughout the U.S. Federal Government (To Include: Department of Defense, Intelligence Community Agencies), Defense Industrial Base Contractors, and the private sector, there is a growing demand for individuals to manage or support Insider Threat Programs.

  • This demand arose out of the requirements for U.S. Government Agencies and Defense Industrial Base Contractors to implement Insider Threat Programs per  National Insider Threat Policy and NISPOM Conforming Change 2 - Insider Threat.

  • To address the urgent need for Insider Threat Awareness Training, Insider Threat Program Development / Management Training and Insider Threat Risk Mitigation strategies, the NITSIG was created.

  • The NITSIG also provides Insider Threat Risk Mitigation guidance to businesses and organizations that are not required by a regulation to implement an Insider Threat Program.

  • The NITSIG provides it's members with a central source for education, information sharing and collaboration.

  • The willingness of NITSIG members to collaborate and share information among the membership has been the driving force that has made the NITSIG very successful.

  • The NITSIG Board of Directors is comprised of Insider Threat Subjects Matter Experts that support government and business Insider Threat Programs.
