As if securing our organizations wasn’t already complex enough with myriad bad actors and tactics, we now must factor in the growing insider threat to organizations.
In military terminology, the insider threat is a “fifth column”—one or a group of insiders who secretly sympathize with or support an enemy and engage in acts of espionage or data gathering for the larger group’s planning efforts, or subversion, thus destabilizing the organization from within.
The U.S. government has several insider threat programs to protect can’t-fail national special programs, including those in the nuclear realm. Information and lessons learned from this realm would be of benefit to other organizations struggling to address their insider threat challenges.
At 11:30 AM ET on Wednesday 29 September, Jennifer Hesterman will present on Insider Threat: Cross Applying U.S. Government Strategies to the Private Sector. Hesterman joined ASIS TV host Chuck Harold to discuss this topic. Register for an All-Access pass to attend this session digitally or in-person.
