Pentagon Seeks Ideas to Combat Insider Threats

DOD SEALThe Defense Department has issued a request for information asking contractors what resources they have to monitor and support efforts to mitigate insider threats, FCW reported Friday.

Frank Konkel linked the RFI to urgent calls in recent years for the government to increase its defenses against insider threats.

Contractors have until Dec. 6 to respond to the request, which was made public in late November under the Washington Headquarters Services’ Threat Management Support Services program.

Stated requirements outlined in the document sought expertise in counterintelligence, security clearance processing, and data analysis of threat detection software.

The RFI also asked for tools to design and deploy security protocols to protect classified data.
