Insider Threat Awareness

This course provides a thorough understanding of how Insider Threat Awareness is an essential component of a comprehensive security program. With a theme of, "If you see something, say something" the course promotes the reporting of suspicious activities observed within the place of duty. Using a few case study scenarios, the course teaches the common indicators which highlight actions and behaviors that can signify an insider threat. The instruction promotes a proactive approach to reporting the suspicious activities.
