Tuesday, 06 February 2024AHS 1|24 - Insider Threat and Riskmanagement

“The insider threat’s best friend is the target’s denial of its existence.” This is the premise of a unique approach to insider threat and risk management for the private sector, yet developed on the basis of hitherto proprietary counter-intelligence know-how , steeped in, and as practiced by, Western government security agencies with their decades-long experience in countering this threat.

It is, therefore, a clear departure from the “Carnegie Mellon”-Playbook of insider risk management and, hence, transcends the facile explanatory models of “social engineering” (which is, at best, a single aspect of the wider field of operatioanl tradecraft) and the reductionist perspective of the threat as being germane to, or rooted in, IT-, Cyber or Information Security. The presentation takes the audience on a journey of

a) framing the problem;
b) explaining the threat actors and vulnerabilities of target organizations; and
c) proposed a way forward for private sector organization

to cope with the insider threat emanating from a range of actors; and even succeed at preparing an organization in order to effectively counter this threat.
