Since 2001, CERTs National Insider Threat Center has been assisting the Department of Defense, the U.S. Government, Law Enforcement, Industry, and Academia to identify and mitigate threats posed to critical assets by trusted insiders. Threats can originate from current or former employees, trusted business partners, including contractors, sub-contractors, cloud services providers, others in your supply chain, or any other individual granted electronic or physical access to your critical assets. The foundation of our research is an empirical data set of nearly 3000 incidents where insiders, either with malicious intent or unintentionally, impacted the confidentially, integrity, or availably of a critical system, service, or data set. This data allows us to be a leading edge, applied-research organization, providing guidance and support to information security programs and practitioners around the world.
