First held in 2019, NITAM is an annual, month-long campaign during September that brings together thousands of U.S. security professionals and policy makers from government and industry, located in 25 countries around the globe, to educate government and industry about the risks posed by insider threats and the role of insider threat programs.
The Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security (USD(I&S)), the National Insider Threat Task Force, and the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) partner together with other stakeholder organizations to build off previous successes and expand the impact and audience of the NITAM campaign each year. Organizations that participate in the campaign increase awareness and promote reporting of insider threats (InTs) across their workforces.
The month-long campaign kicks off with an Insider Threat Conference. This year’s theme is “Critical Thinking in Digital Spaces” and will feature senior level speakers and panelists who will present on critical thinking for the workforce, social engineering threats, an insider threat case study, and resources for workforce resiliency to counter insider risk. Register for the 2022 Insider Threat Virtual Conference.
