What behaviors indicate a potential insider threat?
Insider Threat BR 2016cover_thumb.jpg

An insider threat arises when anyone with access to information or assets an organization values uses that access to inflict harm to the organization, its employees, or to national security. Failing to indentify and mitigate the threat can have devastating consequences for your organization and increase its vulnerability to violent activity or economic espionage. It is important for you to be aware of key indicators and the value a comprehensive "behaviorally focused" insider threat program has in protecting your organization and the country.

This comprehensive program is designed to develop the critical components of an insider threat program using modern analytic techniques and measures. Using a security return on investment (ROI) approach, learn how to evolve your current security program into a united management structure that will identify and deter individuals from carrying out violent and non-violent threats.

Learn the skills and procedures required to identify social-psychological factors critical to shaping a comprehensive insider threat program. Real case studies are used to explain how counterproductive work behavior can reveal early signs of a potential insider threat.
