Given the impact of ISIL and their ideology, it is clear there is an increasing risk that organizations face when employees radicalize and become a potential terrorist threat. There are many examples that highlight this risk. Where vetting is still seen as an important safeguard to avoid recruiting potential terrorists, it is a wholly different story when employees radicalize. How to detect this, how to assess the risk, how to respond? When to report to the authorities? This is likely one of the bigger challenges of the coming decade.
