As a trusted third party between government, industry, and academia, the CERT Insider Threat Center is in a unique position to help organizations with their insider threat challenges. However, the need for qualified experts to support organizations in the development and operation of insider threat programs is now greater than ever. To meet this growing demand, we are developing new solutions to transition our important research and enable others to also provide this critical support.
Our new insider threat training and certificate programs will educate professionals on how to help organizations identify and manage their insider threat risks, and how to measure their preparedness to defend against them. The new programs will also teach how to evaluate an organization's insider threat program, or even build and operate one from scratch. Founded on our analysis of more than 800 insider incidents, these programs are for individuals in government and industry organizations that are looking to build, assess, or evaluate an insider threat program, while protecting the privacy and civil liberties of their employees.
