Dr. Tomori Mareglen, IPO Executive President

Statement of IPO CTIU Director

As the newly appointed Director of the IPO CTIU - Cyber Threat Intelligence Unit, I submitted to the IPO Executive President Dr. Tomori Mareglen the first official project proposal focused on an insider "Threat Management Program" that includes all its main elements for development, implementation & monitoring of cyber threats and attacks.

This TMP - "Threat Management Program" has a special focus on Public Administration.

The insider TMP proposed by our Unit would provide a comprehensive approach to identifying, assessing, and mitigating insider threats on Public Administration.

This program would help prevent potential security breaches and protect sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.

The CTIU Team highlighted the potential benefits of this program, particularly in light of recent cyber attacks in the Albanian Intitutions from ATP 42 and sub-groups.

These attacks have demonstrated the growing risk posed by insider threats, and the need for effective mitigation strategies.

Implementing the TMP in Public Administration, could significantly reduce the risk of insider threats and protect against cyber attacks.

I did stress the point that from this program would not benefit only the Public Administration but also have wider implications for other government agencies and private sector organizations.

Overall, the meeting was a success, with our Unit members demonstrating their commitment to advancing the IPO's mission of providing cutting- Cyber Threat Intelligence & cybersecurity solutions. The proposed Insider Threat Management Program received positive feedback and is now being considered for further development and implementation.
