Insider Risk Summer Course - START & ARLIS BSST 338Q/638Q


This course will take the form of a survey course where we will explore past and present trends of insider threat; response and mitigation challenges; and policies, procedures, and practices currently implemented in the U.S. Government to respond to and mitigate threats. The course will also examine individual, organizational, and social stressors that could contribute to insider behaviors and explore the systems approach to countering insider threat vis-a-vis vulnerability assessments. In doing so, the course will expose students to a new paradigm of thinking that shifts the focus from insider threat to insider risk, and countering insider threat to mitigating insider risk.
