Time after time, we comb through the wreckage of the latest insider threat event to glean every lesson so that whatever happened never happens again. These after-action reports and damage assessments are important and should continue, but what can we learn from organizations that dont make the headlines What can we learn from organizations that have not had to recover from an insider threat event For the first report in the series, On the Right Track, researchers partnered with subject matter experts in law enforcement and asked them to share their opinions as to why worker-on-worker violence seems so rare in police departments, especially given the intense, fast-paced, and armed environment. The purpose of this report was to identify best practices based on these discussions, and recommend potential prevention strategies that the Department of Defense might want to consider for its own workforce and prioritize for additional research.
