10 Steps for Establishing an Effective Insider Threat Program

Insider threats continue to be a concern for organizations. New research conducted by Crowd Research Partners, in co- ordination with the LinkedIn Information Security Group, reveals that 74 percent of organizations feel vulnerable to insider threats, while 54 percent of security professionals say insider threats are more common overall.

Part of the problem is that most organizations still don’t have the proper controls or processes in place to fight off the insider threat surge. Preparing for insider threats starts with the establishment of an insider threat program (InTP) that can be delivered and deployed across different business units. In fact, if your organization is part of the U.S. federal government or the Defense Industrial Base, you’ve already been mandated to have an insider threat program as of November 30, 2016.

After all, each program needs to be tailored to meet your unique security needs. In this eGuide, we will walk you through 10 essential steps you need to take to implement tangible processes, policies, and frameworks that are repeatable and sustainable to go beyond a plan that’s on paper only.
