U.S. Now Has A Database That Predicts Traitors

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to establish a new system of records, DUSDI 01-DoD, entitled the “Department of Defense (DoD) Insider Threat Management and Analysis Center (DITMAC) and DoD Component Insider Threat Records System.” This system has been established to enable DoD to implement the requirements of Executive Order 13587, Structural Reforms to Improve the Security of Classified Networks and the Responsible Sharing and Safeguarding of Classified Information (October 7, 2011), and the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs (November 21, 2012).

For purposes of this system of records, the term “insider threat” is defined in the Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs which were issued by the National Insider Threat Task Force based on directions provided in Section 6.3(b) of Executive Order 13587. The system will be used to analyze, monitor, and audit insider threat information for insider threat detection and mitigation within DoD on threats that insiders may pose to DoD and U.S. Government installations, facilities, personnel, missions, or resources. The system will support the DITMAC and DoD Component insider threat programs, enable the identification of systemic insider threat issues and challenges, provide a basis for the development and recommendation of solutions to mitigate potential insider threats, and assist in identifying best practices amongst other Federal Government insider threat programs.
