Abstract

The goal of the Insider Threat Mitigation Project in FY14 was two-fold: (1) Evaluate and improve insider threat mitigation pattern effectiveness through piloting in partner organizations and (2) Develop and evaluate technical solutions for emerging insider threats, with a focus on insider-facilitated espionage.

By moving from the ongoing threat analysis into trends that help characterize the emerging threat, we are able to understand the requirements for next-generation enterprise system architectures needed to defend effectively against insider attacks.
