insider-threatThe Defense Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s National Insider Threat Task Force have formed a partnership to counter insider threats, C4ISR & Networks reported Thursday.

Rutrell Yasin writes the team currently examines ways to establish insider threat programs through its components.

NITTF Co-Director Patricia Larsen told a C4ISR & Networks webcast that the DoD and ODNI seek to “determine which of the minimum standards can be applied and in what way to each individual component.”
