The National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF) issued its Insider Threat Program Maturity Framework in 2018 to help federal agencies advance their Insider Threat Programs beyond the Minimum Standards. One of the 19 Maturity Framework Elements (ME) is to employ behavioral science methods to help identify indicators of potential insider threats (ME15). Specifically, ME15 calls on federal agencies to “identify internal or external sources of behavioral sciences expertise to incorporate personal and environmental factors in threat identification, assessment, and response.”1 The behavioral sciences, however, include several academic disciplines and a variety of skill sets. With limited funds, how can an Insider Threat Program ensure it hires the behavioral scientists it needs?
