Abstract:

Military network environments will be subject to both internal and external threats for the foreseeable future. Internal threats to cyber networks from U.S. personnel receive little attention in comparison to external threats; yet, the consequences can be even more devastating. The lack of tools for understanding insider threat, analyzing risk mitigation alternatives, and communicating results exacerbates the problem. In addition to automatic defense systems, supervisors must be alert to behavioral markers of suspicious behavior or attitudes on the part of employees. Effective training of supervisors and the instructors who teach them would help the DoD take proactive measures to detect and prevent intrusions as they happen, and before they can do significant damage. To address this challenge, the TiER1 Performance Solutions Team proposes to design and build XL-CITR (Accelerated Learning for Cyber Insider Threat Reduction), a training development system that will properly train supervisors to detect and thwart insider threats to cyber networks.
