Federal and Private Sector Leaders to Talk Insider Threat Programs and Continuous Evaluation

Federal government and private sector leaders will convene to discuss insider threat best practices, continuous evaluation, and open source at upcoming Insider Threat Alliance Summit. On May 10th, 2018, senior leaders within the federal government and private sector will convene in Washington, D.C. for a half day of off the record briefings and senior level discussions at the “Insider Threat Programs & Continuous Evaluation Summit” hosted by the 501c (3) nonprofit Insider Threat Alliance.

Washington, DC, April 12, 2018 --( Establishing and maintaining an effective and efficient insider threat program requires a multitude of capabilities working in tandem to tackle a human problem of malicious or non-malicious intent towards causing some level of harm to an organization; from effective program management and employee buy-in and training to employing the most efficient technical tool sets. There is no one singular solution, and yet all pieces of an insider threat program are as relevant as the next.

For this iteration, the topic areas will include:

1. Leadership considerations and perspectives towards implementing an effective insider threat program: tackling the ethical and workplace cultural challenges.

2. How to define, decide and deliver the core data for a continuous evaluation program: what does that look like from a programmatic viewpoint?

3. What external data sets are providing meaningful context for effective CE? Are there data sets proving effective as indicators and stressors? How do you establish a historical baseline for analysis?

4. What is the legal perspective towards accessing and monitoring various data sets? What’s currently acceptable, and where is the line towards privacy concerns and policy limitations?

5. Future considerations towards what open source data could/should be included in any continuous evaluation and monitoring process? Considerations towards ethical, technical and legal challenges.

ITA Executive Committee Member Mr. Jonathan McDonald, Executive Vice President, TransUnion will serve as Chairman with TransUnion senior leaders moderating their two panels during the morning.

- Mr. David M. Lowy, SES, Deputy Director of Security, Special Program Oversight and Information Protection, Office of the Secretary of the Air Force (pending final approval)
