Back in November of 2012, the White House issued the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs.  These minimum standards provided the Departments and Agencies with the minimum elements necessary to establish effective insider threat programs.  Fast forward 4 years, and we’ve finally received the NISPOM Conforming Change 2 that now outlines insider threat requirements for cleared industry operating under the National Industrial Security Program.

These minimum standards now include:

  • Establishing an insider threat program
  • Designating an insider threat senior official who is cleared in connection with the facility clearance
  • Self-assessments of insider threat programs
  • Insider threat training for insider threat program personnel and awareness for employees
  • Monitoring network activity

In addition to the much anticipated insider threat changes, the NISPOM Conforming Change 2 also addresses changes to marking compilations, reports to DoD about Cyber Incidents, Secret storage, repair of approved containers and much more.  View the revised NISPOM in it’s entirety below.
