Insider Threat Workshop

August 15, 2013 @ 08:00 - 16:00 UTC-5

The Insider Threat Workshop is a one-day review of current trends in Insider Threat tactics and remediation steps of interest to managers and Cyber Security professionals. The workshop provides an overview of the current state of understanding of who the “insiders” are, how they operate, what motivates them and what threats they pose to information systems. The workshop will also address new approaches based on current technology, such as Cloud Computing and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and the threats they impose.  Technical papers and a mid-day panel of experts, including representatives from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL/Rome) will provide a wide-ranging discussion surface to engage most all areas of interest regarding the Insider Threat.  The output of this workshop will be used to update the 2007 “The Insider Threat to Information Systems” State of the Art Report (SOAR) published by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) under the Information Assurance Technology Analysis Center (IATAC) which has recently been merged into the Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC).
