DID YOU KNOW?
 
Insider Threat Awareness: Six Types of Employees Who Can Wreak Havoc in Your Organization.
This Counterintelligence (CI) Note provides important information for leaders, managers, and employees at NASA on employee personalities that may pose a threat to the Agency. Regarding the collection of sensitive and classified U.S. information by other countries, John Carlin, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, recently stated, "We still do the traditional spy cases. But a lot of the cases now are not traditional espionage, insofar as they're not necessarily a trained member of the other country's spy service. Instead, they're getting information by cyber-enabled means or stealing it by bribing an insider." For questions about this report or to report suspicious activity, contact CI Directors Art Payton or Kim Saxon.
