The 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.”
NITTF works to help federal agencies detect and prevent insiders from compromising classified information, Yasin reports.
Larsen said insider threat programs must have senior leadership buy-in and trained professionals who have a complete view of an organization in order to succeed, C4ISR & Networks reports.
