 Program Overview

Developing an Operational Strategic Plan

Developing a state of the art security program requires an understanding of your existing program’s strengths and weaknesses and comparing the existing program against the desired goals required to modernize and provide a Return on Investment (ROI) to senior management.  The plan should consider multiple areas of possible improvement.


Learn about current trends in behavior modeling from a security perspective.  Use the models of both non-violent and violent behaviors as the core elements in designing internal security mitigation strategies to: Identify, Prevent; Detect; and Respond to the Insider Threat within the organization. 


Learn and practice the hidden skill of developing and analyzing security metrics.  Learn about the principles and guidelines used for presenting meaningful metrics as an integral aspect of presentations to senior management.

Monitoring and Risk Management/Mitigation

Discover techniques and practices of designing effective security monitoring systems.  Apply the metric based implementation of the behavioral model through the integration of human and technical monitoring technologies, processes and protocols to achieve a comprehensive security program.

Effectively Collaborating to Build and Maintain an Insider Threat Program

Security programs are not effective in isolation. Discover how to identify and work with both internal and external groups to develop a converged approach to protect your organization from the threat.  Knowing who to engage and how is essential for an effective program.

Communicating with the C-Suite and gaining buy-in for an Insider Threat Program

Senior management supports security programs only if they can prove their value to the organization.  Use the knowledge and skills provided in this workshop coupled with your ability to develop effective and meaningful presentations that demonstrate a ROI in security.

Counterintelligence Essentials

Is there a difference between Security and Counterintelligence?  Learn about the way security professionals can and should enhance their skills in industry by applying Counterintelligence principles. 

Insider Threat Incident Response

Once an employee has been identified as a potential or real threat to the organization, mitigation becomes critical.  Learn about both human and technical options available to the security professional.  Discover that early intervention is essential in providing effective ROI.

Insider Threat Education and Training

An effective program relies on effective education and awareness.  Learn about who should be taught, what they need to learn and what type of media is most effective for each audience.  Discover that simple changes of perspectives in understanding the motivations concerning the potential Insider can create dramatic improvements in the efficiency of an organization.
