Insider Threat Needs to Focus on Access, Technology

Insider threat topics are in the news today – but the idea of insider threat is nothing new. Policies for insider threat training and how to conform to the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) are well established, but today is a good time to refresh your program and ensure compliance. Jeffrey Bennett, security and risk management consultant and author of a recently released book about how to build an insider risk program under the NISPOM, discusses insider risk and what it means for cleared defense contractors.

In the second half of the program, Lindy Kyzer, ClearanceJobs, and Sean Bigley, legal correspondent, discuss the reason why a $10,000 deposit could raise red flags in the security clearance process.
