Mitigating Advanced Persistent Insider Threats

ARLINGTON, VA (October 6, 2020) —The Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) today released a white paper, Mitigating Advanced Persistent Insider Threats Fueled by Major Data Breaches, that examines how recent large scale thefts of personal data help America’s adversaries target, exploit, and recruit sources inside government agencies, businesses, and universities.

Developed by INSA's Insider Threat Subcommittee, the paper provides an overview of major data breaches in the past five years, including the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Anthem Health, Equifax, Yahoo, Marriott, United Airlines and multiple online dating sites – among many others – and how this stolen information, combined with advanced targeting capabilities, provides our adversaries with a far more comprehensive picture of those trusted by our government and its outside partners than ever before.

Mitigating Advanced Persistent Insider Threats Fueled by Major Data Breaches offers a number of recommendations for risk managers across the public and private sector to immediately implement to fortify their operations, including putting proactive measures into place, taking the time to get to know employees, employing risk-based decision-making, and embracing a whole person/whole threat approach.
