Big Sky's Insider, May Edition
This month, the buzz has been all about NISPOM Conforming Change 2, just released on May 18. The policy update mandates that all companies employing cleared contractors establish an Insider Threat program that meets the same standards as federal agencies. The change notice alone is 90 pages long, and the clock has already started ticking on 180 days to get into compliance -- give us a shout if we can help you cut through the clutter!
The bottom line: formally addressing Insider Threat is no longer optional - even in the private sector.
