Why You Should Attend This Symposium

  • DSI’s Insider Threat Symposium will bring together leaders from the IC, DoD, Federal Agencies, Private Industry, and Academia to discuss the efforts to develop and integrate successful insider threat programs in order to protect organizational security.
  • An insider threat comes from people within the organization, such as employees, former employees, contractors or business associates, who have inside information concerning the organization's security practices, data and computer systems. These threats are, as the name suggests, internal in nature and focus on trusted employees or contactors. This symposium will focus on how to counter these threats. The solutions are both technical, including monitoring software and increased data security; as well as human, such as enhanced screening processes and behavioral analytics. Many agencies are working to stand up their insider threat programs and are learning how to identify, contain, and combat insider threat.
  • The symposium will examine successful programs, challenges in setting up programs, legal issues that insider threat programs face, and the latest analytics methods being utilized to identify insider threats.
  • Join us for this year’s Insider Threat Symposium as we discuss the various opportunities and challenges that the IC, DoD, and private industry face as they develop and integrate insider threat programs into their organizations.
