September 2020 is the second annual National Insider Threat Awareness Month (NITAM)! BGI recognizes the seriousness of the insider threat and is promoting heightened awareness and encouragement to its employees to report anomalous activities. Early intervention leads to positive outcomes for individuals and organizations.
The theme for NITAM this year is “Resilience,” the intangible quality that allows us to face adversity and come back at least as strong as before. Insider Threat programs promote personal resilience to mitigate risks associated with insider threats. Personal and organizational resilience is more important than ever, as we contend with significant challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
