Insider Risk Programme

Protecting Your People and Your Assets

An insider risk assessment is a crucial first step in comprehending and mitigating insider risks within your organisation. However, understanding the risks alone isn’t sufficient. The next course of action should be the tackling the primary challenges associated with insider risk by establishing a holistic insider risk programme

Why Start a Programme with Signpost Six?

Our expertise is in helping organisations cut through this complexity by designing, implementing and improving insider risk programmes appropriate to their situation. We can assess the maturity of insider risk countermeasures, knit together existing investigative processes into a unified model, think strategically about roadmap priorities or suggest detailed metrics to demonstrate programme value – our focus is determined by your needs.

Building a Strong Foundation

The first year of an insider risk programme focuses on laying a robust foundation for the long-term success of the programme across all relevant departments and stakeholders. While the specifics of each organisation’s programme will vary, there are key pillars that remain the same:

Insider Risk Governance

Build on a strong governance structure headed by a senior leader. This provides the programme with the necessary authority and visibility to ensure its effectiveness.

We assist in establishing this governance. 

Case Management

Insider risk management is a complex process that requires collaboration from multiple stakeholders, as well as clear guidelines and escalation paths to ensure appropriate handling.

Training & Awareness

Creating a strong culture of awareness and security is a cornerstone of an effective insider risk programme. All employees must understand the importance of insider risk and the role they play in its mitigation.

Navigating the Insider Risk Journey

For organisations embarking on their insider risk journey, progression typically unfolds across three distinct phases. At Signpost Six, we offer bespoke solutions tailored to each phase, enabling you to adapt to evolving threat landscapes and successfully advance your programme to its next maturity level.


Insider risk assessment 

To understand where you need to go, you must first understand where you are. Many companies already assess elements of insider risk individually but rarely evaluate how these countermeasures combine into a holistic approach. That is our speciality. We analyse threats, organisational context and current countermeasure maturity to identify countermeasure gaps that expose the organisation to unnecessary risk.  

Phase I


Insider risk strategy and prioritised road map
The gap analysis conducted in Phase I informs the design of an insider risk programme. Working together with you to understand your culture and stakeholder sensitivities, we help shape the initial programme strategy and roadmap. The strategy is further shaped during the stakeholder validation process and recommended pilot.

Phase II


Insider Risk programme implementation and learning

The hard work of implementation requires quick wins and sustained momentum. In this phase we can take on the role of interim programme manager, setting up the programme and handing it over to your insider risk team once it is functional and trained. Our insider risk starter kit contains all the documents a programme manager needs to stand up a programme quickly - governance charters, policies, tailored metrics, run books, among other helpful documents. We also have numerous training options to get that first (and last!) stakeholder on board.
