Organizational risk is on the rise, due in part to increases in incidents by trusted insiders of private and public organizations worldwide. These evolving requirements in many cases mandate a heightened level of attention to the behaviors of the entire workforce, taking into account advances in behavioral analytics, machine learning, and whole-person insider risk management.
In this session, we will explore well-known cases from the past including a detailed review of “The Queen of Cuba” Ana Montes, a former American senior analyst at a US Military Intelligence Agency who spied on behalf of the Cuban government for 17 years. In this session, we will cover the following topics:
- Understanding Insider Threats vs. Insider Risk
- Factors contributing to increased Insider Risk
- Holistic Insider Risk Management Programs
- Training, Techniques, Tools, People
- Insider Risk Considerations in Defense and Intelligence Communities.
