Abstract

There are several models and frameworks that assist in understandinginsider threat. However, practical limitations in operationalising thesemodels include them being overly complex, too subjective, cumber-some, or lacking dimensionality. In response, this study looks to oper-ationalise a practice-based framework for determining organisationalvulnerability to intentional insider threat. The study reports on anExploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) to determine the validity and reliabilityof the Organisational Vulnerability to Intentional Insider Threat (OVIT)diagnostic tool. The EFA results (construct validity and reliability statis-tics) show promise for the use of the OVIT in operationalising inten-tional insider threat detection. Limitations of the study are presentedand future research progressing this exploratory study are encourage
