Since the NISPOM update adds to requirements, there is now a sixth element to the “Elements of Inspection” that are common to ALL cleared companies participating in the National Industrial Security Program (NISP). As mentioned in the first article in the series, all should be incorporated into your customized self-inspection check list: (A) Facility Security Clearance (FCL), (B) Access Authorizations, (C) Security Education, (D) FOCI, (E) Classification, and (Y) Insider Threat.
The best method for ensuring compliance is to begin the Insider Threat Program with the appointment in of an Insider Threat Program Senior Official. This appointment can be executed on corporate letterhead and signed by the authority responsible for approving such actions.
- U.S. citizen
- Senior official
- Security Clearance at the same level as the facility clearance to establish and execute an insider threat program
