Insider Risk for Operation Warp Speed Industry Partners

As a member of the Healthcare and Public Health Sector, you play a significant role in national security by protecting the nation and its economy from hazards such as terrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and natural disasters.

Trusted insiders, both witting and unwitting, can cause grave harm to your organization’s facilities, resources, information, and personnel. Insider incidents account for billions of dollars annually in “actual” and “potential” damages and lost revenue related to data breaches, trade secret theft, fraud, sabotage, damage to an organization’s reputation, acts of workplace violence, and more. Implementation of an Insider Risk Program and an Insider Threat Awareness Campaign can help mitigate risks associated with trusted insiders.

The below resources were developed to support critical infrastructure sectors, cleared industry, DOD component, and federal agency insider threat programs. The principles and best practices therein have been applied throughout the private sector, and all materials are available to support Healthcare and Public Health organizations.
