New National Insider Threat Awareness Month Webpage

In preparation for the second annual National Insider Threat Awareness Month (NITAM) kicking off in September, our virtual package of awareness materials is now available on the new NITAM webpage! The virtual package contains new videos, posters, graphics, social media content, and more. Its aim is to increase awareness and vigilance and prevent the exploitation of authorized access to cause harm to an organization or its resources.

There are many ways to get involved, and the NITAM webpage will help you identify a variety of activities and engagements available to your organization. From utilizing the provided awareness materials to hosting an Insider Threat Awareness day, actions both small and large will help bring attention to the counter-insider threat mission. Please join us during this important campaign. Remember, we all speak louder with one voice. Access the webpage today!
