DOJ OIG Releases Public Summary of a Classified Report on the FBI’s Insider Threat Program

Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today that a classified report examining the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Insider Threat Program has been submitted to Congress, DOJ leadership, and the FBI. The report examines the FBI’s adherence to the National Insider Threat Task Force’s National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards, as well as other related policies, with a focus on the period of April 2014 through March 2017.

Due to its classified nature, the report cannot be released publicly. The OIG has therefore released a 3-page public summary describing the information it contains. As stated in that summary, we found that the FBI could make improvements to its program for deterring, detecting, and mitigating malicious insider threats and made eight recommendations to the FBI for improvement. The FBI agreed with all eight of the recommendations.
