Insider Threat


NCSC co-leads the National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF) with the FBI.  The NITTF helps the Executive Branch build programs that deter, detect, and mitigate actions by insiders who may represent a threat to national security.  The NITTF develops guidance, provides assistance, assesses progress and analyzes new and continuing insider threat challenges.  It is important to note that insider threat programs target anomalous activities, not individuals, so the NITTF’s work is coordinated with the relevant organization’s records management office, legal counsel, and civil liberties and privacy officials to build-in protections against infringing upon employees’ civil liberties, civil rights, privacy and whistleblower protections.
