HHS employees required to watch training video to reduce information leaks

Employees at HHS were required to watch a 31-minute training video describing the dangers of insider threats in order to limit the risk of leaks within the department, reports The Hill.

The video, narrated by HHS Assistant Secretary for Administration John Bardis, is titled "Unauthorized Disclosure of Information Security Training."

The initiative aims to educate employees on how the "risks from unauthorized disclosure of classified information, cybersecurity breaches, insider threats and threats from foreign adversaries can cause irreversible damage to our nation," according to the video's description. To demonstrate the dangers of leaking information, the video describes a terrorist attack that resulted from an unauthorized email disclosure.

According to The Hill, the training is part of a Trump administration initiative to prevent internal leaks.
