CDSE launches Insider Threat mobile app


The Center for Development of Security Excellence, a provider of training and education within DCSA, announced the launch of its first app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The CDSE has partnered with the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and the National Insider Threat Task Force to create Insider Threat Sentry or InT Sentry, an easy-to-navigate app that makes hundreds of training and education resources easier to search and locate.

This mobile addition to CDSE's insider threat portfolio expands the availability of posters, videos, security awareness games, job aids, case studies, and more. With the app, users can download posters, watch videos, play security awareness games, and create vigilance campaign kits, among other activities. Users will also receive exclusive content, including app-only graphics and posters, and can opt in to receive "InTidbits," weekly factoids and informational pieces of interest.

Key Features of InT Sentry: - Award winning videos: watch short security videos, and watch multiple seasons of the Vigilance Video series - Exclusive content: download posters and graphics available only to app users - Visuals: download graphic novels from our insider threat community partners, pictures, artwork, and other imagery to use in your workplace - Insider threat news: keep up to date on events, real-world applications of counter-insider threat education, and new resources - Preparedness guides: download guides on preventing workplace violence, responding to active shooters, and other potentially life-altering events - Online courses and webinars: register for any of CDSE's dozens of online courses and classes, including live and pre-recorded webinars and interactive sessions - Insider threat mindset: read about real-world scenarios and events to understand key indicators of potential insider threats and learn more about how to prevent it from happening - Vigilance Campaign: find everything you need in our extensive resources to create your own Vigilance Campaign for your workplace, ensuring and advocating awareness year round. InT Sentry is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play for iOS (with iOS 11.0 or later) or Android (5.0 and later) phones and tablets.
