• Project Title:
  • Insider Threat Program
  • Start Date:
  • Monday, March 13, 2017
  • Estimated Report Release Date:
  • September 2017

Insider threat is the potential for a current or former employee, contractor, or business partner to accidentally or maliciously misuse their trusted access to harm the organization’s employees, customers, assets, reputation, or interests. An Insider threat program provides an organization with a designed resource to address the problem of insider threats. It must protect the information, documents, files and material provided by USPS components in accordance with current and applicable laws, rules, regulations and policy. Only by taking commensurately specialized action can organizations effectively detect, prevent, and respond to the unique threat from insiders.

An insider threat team is similar to a standard incident response team in some ways. Both teams handle incidents; however, the insider threat team responds to incidents that are suspected to involve insiders.

  • Are there any industry best practices that the Postal Service should consider for managing the Insider Threat program?

    At the the P&DC, dock access is not secure. Many employees use those entrances because no access badge is required and there is no camera to record their comings and goings.
