Risk management: Data organization and impact analysis

This first article of the Insider Threat Management Guide explains how to data organization is the first step in implementing insider threat controls.

Start the process of implementing insider threat controls in your organization by classifying critical information by confidentiality, integrity and availability with associated impact ratings. NIST SP 800-60 provides sample information categories and impact definitions.

 Data Type  Confidentiality  Integrity  Availability
 Trade Secrets  High  High  Medium
 Human Resources  High  Medium  Low
 Financial  High  High  Medium

Now that your data has been defined and classified by CIA rating, identify system boundaries. Boundaries should include systems, data flow, networks, people and hard copy printouts.
