Virtual Insider Threat Detection Analysis Course:


 NITTF has partnered with DITMAC and DIA’s Joint Military Intelligence Training Center (JMITC) to extend enrollment in the Virtual Insider Threat Detection Analysis course to all Executive Branch departments and agencies at no cost. This course is designed for all federal insider threat program analysts from Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), and Non-Title 50 (NT-50) communities.


Specifically, this course provides entry level Counter-Insider Threat Analysts the ability to apply critical thinking skills and applicable structured analytic techniques to potential insider threat indicators as learners obtain and use holistic data in conjunction with the application of critical pathway theory. Participants will apply Executive Order, Department of Defense, and IC
authorities to gather this holistic data while they ensure constitutional and privacy rights are maintained. Participants will execute the appropriate processes for conducting and reporting insider threat response actions from intake of an initial potential threat to mitigation of the threat.
Additionally, students will be able to disclose mandated counterintelligence and criminal activity information to the appropriate agency/office.

External Learning Modules


NITTF features an insider threat training module developed by one of our Intelligence Community partners. This training addresses a variety of insider threat matters such as leaks, spills, espionage, sabotage, and targeted violence.


NITTF also features a mental wellness training module. This training was developed by the Office of Intelligence Community Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity to explain challenges our workforce may endure if they are experiencing mental health issues. While there are times when behaviors of security concern overlap with mental disorders and require further review, the overwhelming reason for an employee to visit an agency’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is to have an objective, trained professional help sort out generally temporary and minor emotional problems.


Any Given Day – An Insider Threat Short (8 minute video):


Any Given Day Training Video

Any Given Day (VIDEO) is an 8-minute video that was produced to enhance insider threat education and awareness.  It highlights the balance between collecting information and privacy concerns, and presents a side of insider threat programs that is not often considered: protecting national security at the human level.  Executive Order 13587 focuses on safeguarding classified networks and classified information, but it's not just about information, it's also about protecting people.  NITTF encourages inclusion of this video in your existing training plan for your workforce.
