DHS/ALL/PIA-052 Insider Threat Program


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS or Department) Insider Threat Program (ITP) was established as a DHS-wide effort to manage insider threat matters. The ITP detects, prevents, and mitigates threats posed to the Department by individuals who have or had authorized access to DHS facilities, information, equipment, networks, or systems while protecting their privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties. DHS is updating this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to account for a new affected population and new types of information the ITP is now authorized to collect and maintain. Originally, the ITP focused on the detection, prevention, and mitigation of unauthorized disclosure of classified information by DHS personnel with active security clearances. The Secretary’s approval expands the scope of the ITP to its current breadth: threats posed to the Department by all individuals who have or had access to the Department's facilities, information, equipment, networks, or systems. Unauthorized disclosure of classified information is merely one way in which this threat might manifest. Therefore, the expanded scope increases the population covered by the program to include all those with past or current access to DHS facilities, information, equipment, networks, or systems, regardless of security clearance.
