Today the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published its Insider Threat Mitigation Guide, which brings together planning and preparedness resources from federal and private sector experts into a single format that organizations can use to prepare for and respond to an insider threat. It contains step-by-step information, best practices, metrics, tools, and training that can be used for establishing an effective threat mitigation plan to decrease the likelihood of harm to people, companies, organizations, and critical infrastructure. CISA also published two accompanying fact sheets with the release of the guide.

  • HR's Role in Preventing Insider Threats is specifically for human resources professionals to better understand how to form threat management teams and address potential insider threats.
  • Insider Threats 101: What You Need to Know provides information on the risks posed by insiders, potential operational impact, and mitigating measures.
