To continue the preparedness and resilience theme, September is also National Insider Threat Awareness Month (NITAM). Established by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, NITAM aims to increase organizational preparedness of this prevalent and perpetual threat; this year’s NITAM theme focuses on “Resilience.” Through preventing the exploitation of authorized access, organizations can reduce the risk from an insider to cause harm to an organization and its resources. The Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) provides resources, including case studies and scenarios to review with staff for internal discussions to help increase insider threat awareness.
