Insider Threat Symposium


15-16 October 2018
Mary M Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA

Defense Strategies Institute’s Insider Threat Symposium is the only whole of government insider threat event. With 2 days, 20+ speakers, and opportunities for Industry, this year’s symposium will focus on the efforts to develop insider threat programs across government agencies and private sector industry in order to provide them with the information and resources needed to deter, detect, and mitigate insider threats.

  • In today’s ever-evolving technological era, organizations are facing increasingly complex threats. One of the most challenging threats can often come from within an organization. US Government agencies are actively combating such insider threats to protect highly sensitive information from improperly spreading and undermining our nation’s security. This symposium will focus on how to counter such threats. The solutions are both technical, including monitoring software and increased data security; as well as human, such as enhanced screening processes and behavioral analytics.
  • Participants in this forum will have the rare opportunity to hear from government and industry leaders to better understand the requirements and support necessary to combat, prevent, and detect insider threats by employing a combination of cyber measures, communication strategies, employee training programs, and leadership support.
  • DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our symposium’s content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from operational leaders, the R&D Community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
