The Practical Certificate in Insider Risk Management – Investigations

NPSIA-PT&D, in cooperation with the Canadian Insider Risk Management Centre of Excellence is pleased to announce the pilot offering of our new Investigations workshop.  This 2-day, online program joins our Foundations for Screening and Risk Factors workshop in a growing suite of Insider Risk Management training experiences.

Concern about insider threat and continuous assurance has increased exponentially for government, public and private organizations which has put the onus on employers to focus upon human factors when establishing controls to protect their critical assets. Organizations rely upon initial investigational discovery and analysis to determine if further action is required to mitigate potential insider threats, or conduct investigations in response to an attack by an insider threat. Administrative investigations are essential for protecting an organization’s assets, including sensitive information, financial resources, and intellectual property. By identifying and addressing insider threats, organizations can safeguard their most valuable resources.

In this workshop participants will learn to understand several key areas of consideration involved in the conduct of administrating investigations of insider threats in either public or private industry. A detailed process framework is utilized to assist with repeatable processes and outcomes regardless of the circumstances of insider threats’ underlying motives and allow for the gathering of information to arrive at an objective and defensible employment decision.
