CGIC British Columbia Branch CPD Webinar – Identifying and addressing the Insider Threat

Join the CGIC British Columbia Branch on Tuesday, November 9 at 1 pm ET for a CPD Webinar on Identifying and addressing the Insider Threat with Dr. Mark Lokanan and Mr. Bill Danielsen.

Dr. Lokanan and Mr. Danielsen will discuss what insider threats are in organizations and look at how the psychological factors of Machiavellianism, psychopathology, and narcissism have roles in determining threat risk.  This will lead to a review of how social bonds and life-course theory may act as mitigation against this threat behaviour.  Finally, they will present on their intent to use Artificial Intelligence to predict insider threats so that organizations can be protected.
