Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, August 6th 2021, or created by us.
As the threat landscape continues to expand so must insider threat program strategies, procedures, and supporting technologies. From accounting for new and increased stressors on employees enhanced through the pandemic, the growing reach, and sophistication of technical and social strategies of adversaries, expanding reach and scope of acts of economic espionage, to vulnerabilities with remote workforces, federal agencies and stakeholders need to ensure they are sharing best practices with one another in order to advance their respective insider threat programs.
Further, insider threats programs will need to adapt in order to best support the “Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity” advancing Zero Trust Architecture. Finally, the recent release of NCSC’s publication “Insider Threat Mitigation for U.S. Critical Infrastructure Entities: Guidelines from an Intelligence Perspective” supports the Administration’s larger emphasis on these sectors, and developing robust insider threat programs is critical for their functional resiliency and reliability.
Whether you are a member of the federal government, industry, or academia, join us in October for this collaborative discussion to help all stakeholders improve the robustness of counter insider threat programs across the government.
