Booz Allen Hamilton, the defense contracting giant whose employee was charged Wednesday in connection with the theft of hacking codes used by the National Security Agency, provides a fairly ironic service to the government: spotting rogue employees.
The highly secretive contractor in 2014 launched a special service called Insider4Sight designed to help the government spot “insider threats,” such as employees who steal confidential documents. “Insider4Sight behavior-based assessment tools are applied against expected role models to detect rogue insiders before significant damage occurs,” a company brochure boasts.
Booz Allen Hamilton’s marketing asks: “How do we detect insider threats before rogue employees can do significant damage?”
Booz Allen Hamilton employee Harold Martin III, a contractor for the NSA, was charged today with illegally copying and taking home highly confidential code used for infiltrating the computers of foreign governments.
