AN INNOVATIVE, NEW SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF INSIDER SPIES

NOIR for USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to educate and promote to the US Intelligence Community, policymakers and the public the NOIR concepts and ideas which are intended to improve our national security by fixing the problem of insider spies in an innovative way.

Most Insider Threat management initiatives have been technology driven. While clever and useful up to a point, they are subject to the Law of Diminishing Returns and can backfire by creating a negative, distrustful workplace atmosphere. A well-motivated insider can defeat nearly any technology-based system. They will always find a way.

By contrast, the NOIR proposal centers on the minds of potential or current insider threats: their psychologies, and their inner worlds. The battle must be won there.

It’s time for something new: the proposed National Office for Intelligence Reconciliation (NOIR).
