Hello, I'm David Mundie, a CERT cybersecurity researcher. This post is about the research CERT is doing on unintentional insider threats, in particular social engineering.

Earlier this year, the CERT Division's Insider Threat Team published the report Unintentional Insider Threats: A Foundational Study that documents results of a study of unintentional insider threats (UIT), which was sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security Federal Network Resilience (FNR). Following the success of that report, we on the Insider Threat Team continued our work on UIT, focusing on one aspect of the threat: social engineering.
