National Insider Threat Awareness Month

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center, National Insider Threat Task Force, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Intelligence), Department of Homeland Security, and Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) are partnering with Insider Threat community stakeholders to support National Insider Threat Awareness Month (NITAM) during September 2020. During NITAM 2020 we will be focusing on theme of “Resilience”.  Resilience is an intangible quality that allows us to face adversity and come back at least as strong as before. It helps individuals harden the target and develop behaviors, thoughts, and actions that promote personal wellbeing and mental health. Insider Threat programs promote personal and organizational resilience to mitigate risks.  See Director/NCSC NITAM endorsement message here.

 


 

NITTF Mission

The primary mission of the NITTF is to develop a Government-wide insider threat program for deterring, detecting, and mitigating insider threats, including the safeguarding of classified information from exploitation, compromise, or other unauthorized disclosure, taking into account risk levels, as well as the distinct needs, missions, and systems of individual agencies.


Establishment of NITTF

In October 2011, the president issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13587 (PDF) establishing the [National] Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF) under joint leadership of the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. The president directed federal departments and agencies with access to classified information to establish insider threat detection and prevention programs, and the NITTF to assist agencies in developing and implementing these programs. In November 2012, following an extensive interagency coordination and vetting process, the president issued the National Insider Threat Policy and the Minimum Standards (PDF) via a Presidential Memorandum.
