GAO Recommends DoD Guidance, Oversight for Insider-Threat Programs

1 min read

GAOThe Government Accountability Office calls for the Defense Department to release guidance on the implementation of insider-threat programs and subsequent risk assessments and to evaluate current programs to identify capability gaps.

GAO said in a report published Tuesday that the DoD components included in its review have inconsistently incorporated the security elements required in Executive Order 13587 for the protection of classified systems and data.

DoD also does not have a documented process for assessing existing insider-threat programs in order to pinpoint gaps and execute the corresponding policy or technical changes, the investigative body added.

It also urges DoD to form a program office that will oversee these programs and ensure that goals are met.
