Panel: The Psychological and Social Aspects of the Insider Threat

Michael Caloyannides, Mitretek Systems, Inc., [facilitator]

What are the psychological models of the insider? In what ways does the threat manifest itself for different types of insiders (e.g., disgruntled employees, blackmailed insiders, “sleepers”, unwitting accomplices, etc.)? Are there psychological and social issues that are more prevalent in military settings than in corporate settings? Does this change the nature of the strategies used against the insider threat? What policies and practices can actually be implemented that will help to cope effectively with the insider threat? Etc.
