INSA Insider Threat Symposium

The focus on insider threat and industrial security standards, already laser-like in the wake of Snowden and workplace violence, has taken on even greater significance following the OPM data breach. What are the options for better protecting your organization and workforce? Join industry and government executives for a half-day exchange of ideas and solutions to explore:

  • The evolving threat – Data theft, shifts in cultural norms, and how aggressive espionage are altering our perceptions of risk.
  • More rigorous security requirements – The government, the financial sector and defense industry are implementing new standards and processes.
  • Realistic strategies for mitigation – Evaluating your workforce and your security programs can reduce the chances of harm by malicious or careless insiders.
  • Challenges to implementation – Your program must be a legal, defensible, transparent and supported by your workforce as well as your corporate leadership.
