  • 6. ONCIX • Insider threats remain the top counterintelligence challenge to our community. • Over the past century, the most damaging U.S. counterintelligence failures were perpetrated by a trusted insider with ulterior motives. • In each case, the compromised individual exhibited the identifiable signs of a traitor – but the signs went unreported for years due to the unwillingness or inability of colleagues to accept the possibility of treason. • Insiders … are people who have been lured to betray their nation for ideological reasons, a lust for money or sex, or through blackmail. • Mankind's methods may change – but core motivations do not. • Insiders convicted of espionage have, on average, been active for a number of years before being caught. • The damage caused by malicious insiders will likely continue to increase unless we have effective insider threat detection programs that can proactively identify and mitigate the threats before they fully mature. 6

  • 8. Six Recommendations from FBI Ease of Implementation More Technical Less Technical 1. Use appropriate screening processes to select new employees. 2. Educate and regularly train employees on security or other protocols 3. Provide non-threatening, convenient ways for employees to report suspicions. 5. Routinely monitor computer networks for suspicious activity. 4. Ensure that proprietary information is adequately, if not robustly, protected. 6. Ensure security (to include computer network security) personnel have the tools they need. “Remind employees that reporting security concerns is vital to protecting your company’s intellectual property, its reputation, its financial well-being, and its future. They are protecting their own jobs. Remind them that if they see something, to say something.” – FBI Insider Threats FBI: ONCIX: 8
