2017 Insider Threat Guide: A Compendium of Best Practices to Accompany the National Insider Threat Minimum Standards   [open pdf - 4MB]

"More than five years have passed since Executive Order (E.O.) 13587 required executive branch departments and agencies (D/As) with access to classified information to implement an insider threat detection and prevention program. Since then, the executive branch has made considerable progress in meeting that goal. The White House Memorandum on 'National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs' (hereinafter 'Policy & Standards') laid out the twenty-six minimum standards that D/As are required to meet. The intent of this guide is to assist D/As in their implementation of these minimum standards. E.O.13587 also established the National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF) to assist in the development of an Executive Branch-wide national insider threat program. In addition to developing the 'Policy & Standards,' the NITTF has become central to the continued maturation of the national insider threat community. The NITTF provides individualized technical and programmatic assistance to D/As, conducts training, disseminates best practices, and is championing the push to professionalize and standardize the insider threat career field. Perhaps most importantly, the NITTF is conducting independent assessments of D/A insider threat programs to gauge their implementation of the minimum standards. The knowledge gained from these assessments and community outreach efforts has informed much of this guide."
