Cyber Intelligence for Insider Threats

This seminar will focus on the approach for the identification and mitigation of insider threats. Insider threats are those who have access and through actions unwittingly or wittingly compromise or threaten organizational mission effectiveness. The seminar will cover the various forms of actors (both state and non-state), their motivations, and their methodologies (both technical and increasingly non-technical) that they employ. Then the seminar will address the policies and legal framework for prevention, through the implementation of an effective multi-disciplinary mitigation security strategy.

Chris KayInstructor: Chris Kay
