Finding feelings: Intelligence Agency Lines Up New Tool For Rooting Out Insider Threats

The government’s eye in the sky is working on a way to understand more about what’s happening inside its own workers’ heads.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has been building a suite of software to assess the likelihood its employees could leak classified information, harm someone in the workplace or harm themselves. And now it’s planning to try a tool that “looks for emotion” by analyzing text in emails, work chats, social media and more.

How the Hiring Freeze Could Impact the Federal IT and Cybersecurity Workforce

How the Hiring Freeze Could Impact the Federal IT and Cybersecurity Workforce

One of Donald Trump’s first actions as president was to sign an executive order implementing an across-the-board hiring freeze in federal government.

The specific details of that freeze and its immediate impacts on IT are still being worked out — particularly whether any of those positions might be granted exemptions for national security and public safety purposes. But experts say the freeze and the forthcoming federal workforce attrition plan from the Office of Management and Budget could make the government an unattractive employer in a competitive market for a small pool of talent.

Pentagon Kicks Off Background Investigation System Acquisition with RFI

Pentagon Kicks Off Background Investigation System Acquisition with RFI

The Defense Information Systems Agency kicked off the acquisition process this week to build out the backend IT systems that will support the federal government’s new background investigation system, asking contractors to show what existing technologies they might have to support it.

DISA issued a request for information Tuesday for the National Background Investigation System, “the all-encompassing IT applications, storage, security, services, operations, and support for the National Background Investigation Bureau,” which the Office of Personnel Management conceived to replace the Federal Investigative Services in the wake of hacks on its personnel records and security clearance systems in 2014.
