Why Do Companies And Organizations Choose Insider Threat Defense?

  • Insider Threat Defense is a pioneer in Insider Threat Risk Mitigation. We were one of the first companies to offer comprehensive Insider Threat Program Development / Management Training to the U.S. Government and Defense Contractors, who were required to implement Insider Threat Programs, based of off National Insider Threat Policy, and NISPOM Conforming Change 2 regulations.

  • Insider Threat Defense training and services go beyond traditional compliance regulations; National Insider Threat Policy, NISPOM Conforming Change 2, Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Etc.). These compliance regulations are very weak in the area of Insider Threat Risk Mitigation.

  • Insider Threat Defense provides more than just training to our clients. We provide consulting services for Insider Threat Program development, implementation and management, and conduct Insider Threat Risk Assessments.

  • Some organizations that provide Insider Threat Program related training, base their training only off of research. Our training is not just based off of research. We designed our Insider Threat Program Development / Management Training Course based off of our 10+ years providing "Hands On" consulting services to our clients.

  • Designing training based off of more then just research, is a primary  centerpiece of our training. We incorporate "Lessons Learned" based on our analysis of Insider Threat Programs, and Insider Threat related incidents encountered from working with our clients.

  • Insider Threat Defense works with our clients to identify security weaknesses and vulnerabilities. We execute the "Insiders Playbook" of potential breach scenarios, to find holes in the security posture of an organization, before a Malicious Insider does.

  • Insider Threat Defense training and services are also based upon the extensive research we have been conducting since 2009 on the "Insider Threat Problem". This research has been done in partnership with; U.S. Government Agencies, (Department of Defense, Intelligence Community Agencies), Defense Contractors, Insider Threat Risk Mitigation Vendors, and the FBI Maryland InfraGard Insider Threat Special Interest Group - (Previously Run By Insider Threat Defense CEO).

  • The CEO of Insider Threat Defense is the Founder-Chairman of the National Insider Threat Special Interest Group (NITSIG). The NITSIG is a unique and specialized Information Sharing and Analysis Center, focused primarily on Insider Threat Risk Mitigation. The NITSIG Membership is the largest network of Insider Threat Risk Mitigation Security Professionals in the U.S.

We provide our clients with the "Gold Standard" for successful Insider Threat Risk Mitigation.
