Projects and Standards

In January 2019, the outcome of the Insider Threat project co-led by Securitas, DHL, Palmyra Aviation Advisors and CoESS has become available to all players in Critical Infrastructure:

Co-funded by the Internal Security Fund of the European Union, is an online platform hosting two sets of eLearning tools: an Awareness Training and an Insider Threat Program Builder. The target audience is mainly transportation and energy ecosystems, but also other types of Critical Infrastructure. The ultimate goal of Help2Protect is to engage all stakeholders to protect themselves, their colleagues, their company and the infrastructure they work for against insider threats.

Defining the Insider Threat is relatively simple: it is anyone who can have access and damage an organization. Whilst the vast majority of employees are loyal and honest, a very small but potentially very dangerous minority may try to damage an organisation for a variety of reasons. In the past, various transportation providers, nuclear power plants, research institutes and many Critical Infrastructure around the world have been the target of Insider Threats’ attempted sabotage, which – if they had been successful – could have caused major damage and casualties. The threat may also come from sub-contractors, consultants, interim and temporary staff.

The Help2Protect modules are designed to make sure that the Critical Infrastructure are able to function smoothly, without unwanted disruption and are well protected for the good of society. This implies spotting and stopping those who seek to harm them before it is too late.

The modules have been designed by Splintt, a Dutch eLearning company and are hosted here:
