Title: Insider Threat: Crossapplying US Government Strategies to the Private Sector


As if securing our organizations wasn't already complex enough with myriad bad actors and tactics, we now must factor in the growing insider threat to organizations. In military terminology, the insider threat is a “fifth column”—one or a group of insiders who secretly sympathize with or support an enemy and engage in acts of espionage or data gathering for the larger group’s planning efforts, or subversion, thus destabilizing the organization from within.

Information and lessons learned from this realm would be of benefit to other organizations struggling to address their insider threat challenges.
