Development of an Insider Threat Program
Created by the Security Executive Council
Motivation – Mechanism – Consequences
The three pillars of any action are; 1) the motivation or reason driving the action; 2) the mechanism or method used to carry out the action; and 3) the result or consequences of taking that action. Identifying and analyzing insider threats suggests the need to examine these three pillars when executing on the risk management process.
The following chart can be used to help keep these important factors in mind when building insider threat programs. You can download a PDF of this chart below. Keep it handy for working on your program.
