Insider Threat

80% of our losses are due to insider threat”   

The National Counterintelligence Executive, Mr. Robert Bryant, recently noted that, "Insider threats remain the top counterintelligence challenge to our community."

An insider threat arises when a person with authorized access to U.S. Government resources, to include personnel, facilities, information, equipment, networks, and systems, uses that access to harm the security of the United States. Malicious insiders can inflict incalculable damage. They enable the enemy to plant boots behind our lines and can compromise our nation's most important endeavors.
