NITTF Releases New Model for Insider Threat Program

The Insider Threat Program Maturity Framework is intended to help government agencies strengthen their programs.

The National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF), an initiative co-directed by the FBI and the National Counterintelligence Security Center, today issued its "Insider Threat Program Maturity Framework" to improve on government agencies' existing insider threat programs.

In 2012, the White House released the "National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs" to provide executive agencies with minimum standards for insider threat programs. The new framework takes these standards a step further by identifying key parts agencies can enhance to better detect and mitigate risk.

Officials developed the framework in fall 2017 by collecting ideas from the US government's insider threat community. Feedback helped them build a model framework based on the capability maturity model process used in private industry. Earlier this year, representatives from the intelligence community, Department of Defense, and federal partner insider threat programs evaluated the new framework to ensure it was ready for rollout.

6 Pillars
There are six pillars to this new initiative. Three of which are pretty common security best practices and the other are a bit more advanced and I would posit that not many organizations are currently at that end of the maturity model to date.
