Panel Takes On the Insider Threat

The chapter invited members from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), the Defense Security Service (DSS), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI for an October panel discussion on insider threats. Christine Lanning, chapter vice president of programs, moderated the discussion and provided questions for the panel to answer. One panelist suggested that most organizations do not have a plan for insider threats and are more focused on workplace violence, active shooters and disasters. The panel mentioned that organizations may concentrate on identifying inside actors and mitigating their risks but forget about those suffering from mental health issues. Panelists agreed that organizations are obligated to get help for these workers rather than just fire them. The panelists also discussed how departing personnel believe that the information and data they produced or worked on becomes their personal property, and they may want to take it with them. But that data and information is the organization's property and should be left intact upon their departure. The panel also offered assistance to chapter members and guests in the form of online training. The DSS and the DHS both have training, from the basics to master level, free to anyone with a .mil domain. The chapter thanks Ashley Hillard, Chris Jensen, David Cohen, Shawn Chase and James Cruz for participating on the panel. Also, the chapter recognized Master Sgt. Christopher Fiero, USAF, as October's Young AFCEAN of the Month.
