Pentagon Insider Threat Detection Program to Begin Operations in October; Carrie Wibben Comments

DoD logo resizeThe Defense Department plans to set in motion an insider threat detection program in October, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jared Serbu writes the DoD Insider Threat Management Analysis Center will work to gather and coordinate data about employees who have access to defense facilities with the goal of preventing potential adverse actions by the personnel.

“It really is intended to be the central hub for the department’s insider threat programs,” Carrie Wibben, director for security and policy oversight within the office of the undersecretary of defense for intelligence, told the station.

Wibben said the center will provide services such as behavioral analysis, predictive analytics, risk rating tools and insider threat systems in order to streamline the reporting process, according to the report.

Pentagon also seeks to help military departments and combatant commands create their own insider threat program that will relay threat data to the DITMAC, Serbu reports.
