The National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF) was established under Executive Order (E.O.) 13587. The NITTF is the principal interagency task force responsible for developing an Executive branch insider threat detection and mitigation program to be implemented by all federal departments and agencies. Integrated in this mission of insider threat program development is the requirement to develop, provide and establish training standards for Insider Threat program personnel, specifically for those people directly involved with Insider Threat “hubs.” Hubs are responsible for gathering, integrating, and analyzing anomalous activities, and ensuring that appropriate inquiries are conducted and steps taken in response to insider threat concerns.

Any Given Workforce Training Video

Any Given Day was produced for departments and agencies to enhance their insider threat education and awareness efforts. Key messaging highlights the balance between collecting information and privacy concerns, and counters negative “big brother” connotations. NITTF encourages the inclusion of this video into your existing training plan for your workforce.

 

NITTF Insider Threat Training:

 

The demand for Insider Threat training continues to increase in order to meet requirements for implementing insider threat programs, and for developing and professionalizing the insider threat workforce. Since its inception, the NITTF has hosted several versions of no-cost training covering establishment and implementation of insider threat programs. In 2015, the NITTF launched the Insider Threat Hub Operations Course to deliver a practical, scenario-based approach for teaching Insider Threat hub activities. This professional training course focuses on teaching fundamental concepts and requirements for Insider Threat response actions, along with policy and legal authority considerations, from an initial trigger event to mitigation measures. It aids in satisfying national training requirements for Insider Threat program personnel, and better prepares Executive branch departments’ and agencies’ hub personnel to legally and appropriately handle day-to-day insider threat activities. To date, NITTF’s training has reached over 2,000 people across 70 departments and agencies.

NITTF Endorsed Workforce Training:

 

In addition to training tailored for your insider threat professionals, the Minimum Standards also require insider threat awareness training for the federal workforce.  Many D/As have taken the initiative to develop their own training in line with the standards.  The NITTF issued a directive in 2014 for federal agencies to use the Defense Security Service/Center for Development of Security Excellence web-based Insider Threat Awareness course for those agencies who did not have training to provide their workforce.  The DSS site is open to all government D/As and certificates are available after course completion.
