Two New INSA White Papers Published

INSA's Security Policy Reform Council and its Insider Threat Subcommittee just published two new white papers covering relevant and pressing topics facing the IC today.

Getting it Right: Establishing Uniform Policies for Controlled Unclassified Information, prepared by INSA's Security Policy Reform Council, identifies nine different challenges that the National Archives' Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) must address during the implementation of the federal Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) program. Failure to do so, the paper argues, will result in an inconsistent adoption of the program across government and a significant increase in program costs. 

Same but Different: Security Clearances for Contractors and Government Employees, written by INSA's Insider Threat Subcommittee, emerged from the discovery of two critical differences between the Continuous Evaluation processes of contractors and government: consideration of social media and personnel security information sharing. This white paper reveals the findings of the Subcommittee's research into theses differences and makes recommendations to promote the adoption of more uniform processes across government and industry.
