New Insider Threat Indicators in UAM Job Aid

This job aid discusses Insider Threat policies and procedures for User Activity Monitoring (UAM) on classified networks in support of Insider Threat Programs. Logging, monitoring, and auditing of information system activities can lead to early discovery and mitigation of behavior indicative of insider threat. UAM also plays a key role in prevention, assistance, and response (PAR) capabilities to insider kinetic violence threats.

Insider Threat - Unauthorized Disclosure Video

Improper handling of classified documents can happen. As a cleared individual, you have an obligation to protect classified information. Failure to do so can result in damage to national security and the warfighter. There are approved channels to report fraud, waste, or other abuse through existing whistleblower or inspector general channels. There are also approved channels for the release and review of DoD information. Knowing how to handle these situations is crucial to protecting our Nation’s secrets.
