Insider Threat Subcommittee

The INSA Security Policy Reform Council established the Insider Threat Subcommittee following a series of unauthorized disclosures of highly classified information and the 2013 Washington Navy Yard shooting. The goal of the Subcommittee’s work is to enhance the effectiveness, efficiency, and security of both government agencies and the private sector, as well as to foster more effective and secure partnerships between the public, private, and academic sectors. The Subcommittee has had a direct impact on U.S. policy and legislation through its work. In late 2015, the Subcommittee worked closely with the Defense Security Service (DSS) and the ODNI’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) to refine the definition of insider threat in a way that is relevant to all U.S. government agencies and private companies – not exclusively the national security sector. The Subcommittee’s comprehensive definition, which had widespread support in government and industry, was incorporated into the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.

Charlie Allen Op-ed Addresses "Culture of Leaking"

"The American public has grown increasingly accustomed to the revelation of national security secrets, and leakers are lauded as heroes exposing government abuses," writes INSA senior intelligence adviser Charlie Allen. "In doing so, society marginalizes the detrimental impact to national security."
