CERTIFIED COUNTER-INSIDER THREAT PROFESSIONAL (CCITP) Program

 

The CCITP Program is now Nationally Accredited!!

The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredited the CCITP-Fundamentals (CCITP-F) and CCITP-Analysis (CCITP-A) for a five-year period, expiring 2026, during its recent meeting.  The CCITP received NCCA accreditation of its programs by submitting an application demonstrating the program’s compliance with the NCCA’s Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs.  Since 1977, the NCCA has been accrediting certification programs based on the highest quality standards in professional certification to ensure the programs adhere to modern standards of practice in the certification industry.  There are more than 315 NCCA-accredited programs that certify individuals in a wide range of professions and occupations including nurses, financial professionals, respiratory therapists, counselors, emergency technicians, crane operators, and more.

 

In 2011, Executive Order 13587 established the requirement for all United States Government (USG) Executive Agencies to establish an Insider Threat Program.  The Executive Order also established the National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF), co-led by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Department of Justice (DoJ), and the minimum standards by which a Counter-Insider Threat (C-InT) program would be deemed operational.

 

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security (OUSD(I&S)), in partnership with the NITTF, focused on the people-related aspect of the C-InT capability, and created two professional certifications.  These certifications were developed with maximum participation from across the USG, resulting in broad applicability across C-InT workforces. 

 
  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Fundamentals (CCITP-F): The CCITP-F measures and assesses whether an individual has the requisite knowledge and skills annotated in the CCITP-Essential Body of Knowledge to perform the tasks outlined in the CCITP-Essential Body of Work. The CCITP-F was designed with a target population of those personnel working directly in a C-InT program; however, because each program is unique with different needs and constraints, the CCITP-F is open to anyone who works within or is affiliated with a C-InT Program, as determined by each organization’s Program Manager.  The examination measures acceptable performance across five (5) topic areas:
    • Topic Area 1: Policy and Directives - 25%
    • Topic Area 2: Social and Behavior Science - 10%
    • Topic Area 3: Researching - 30%
    • Topic Areas 4 & 5: Synthesis & Tools and Methods - 35%
 
  • Certified Counter-Insider Threat Professional - Analysis (CCITP-A): The CCITP-A establishes a common standard of analytic tradecraft of all who serve and support the Counter-Insider Threat (C-InT) capability; it focuses on the analysis of C-InT information and development of mitigation recommendations.  The CCITP-A measures and assesses whether an individual has the requisite knowledge and skills annotated in the CCITP-Essential Body of Knowledge to perform the tasks outlined in the CCITP-Essential Body of Work.  The CCITP-A was designed for the target population of those personnel working directly in a C-InT program and performing analysis functions.  The examination measures acceptable performance across six (6) topic areas:
    • Topic Area 1: Policy and Directives - 20%
    • Topic Area 2: Social and Behavior Science - 10%
    • Topic Area 3: Researching - 20%
    • Topic Areas 4 & 5: Synthesis & Tools and Methods - 35%
    • Topic Area 6: Vulnerabilities Assessment and Management - 15%
Conferral of Fall 2020 CCITP certifications were issued January 14, 2021.  Individuals who met all certification requirements should have received an email regarding how to access your digital badge and printable certificate.  If you have not received this communication, please email the PMO at osd.cint-certification@mail.mil. ​

 

NO SHOW POLICY: If a candidate does not cancel or reschedule a confirmed exam at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled exam and does not show up for their scheduled exam, the USG will still be charged an exam seat fee as if the candidate sat for the exam.  PLEASE make every effort to make your scheduled exam date or reschedule in time to meet the Pearson VUE Deadline.  If an individual is a no-show for two exam iterations, he or she will not be able to participate in the CCITP Program.  Individuals may appeal by submitting a waiver request explaining why they were unable to make scheduled exam sessions.
