Abstract:

Insider threat professionals are often contacted for assistance when an organizational leader experiences concern, stress, or fear related to an employees behavior. For leaders, this situation may be the only time they experience unsettling or suspicious behavior at work, and it may cause anxiety as they work to find a solution. As members of the insider threat team, we must understand how people perceive risk and react to unfamiliar circumstances so that we can maximize the value of our assessment and mitigation recommendations. After all, at the end of the day, organizational leaders will own the action plan.
