The Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University will host the CERT (computer emergency response team) Insider Risk Management Symposium 2021 on September 28 and 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT each day. The free, virtual event brings together recognized leaders in insider threat research, as well as leading insider threat program practitioners in both government and industry, to discuss the latest challenges and best practices in insider risk management. Anyone can register for the symposium, which is geared toward insider threat program stakeholders such as program managers and analysts.
The symposium supports this September’s National Insider Threat Awareness Month. For the third year running, the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, National Insider Threat Task Force (NITTF), Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) are partnering with insider threat community stakeholders to emphasize the importance of safeguarding the nation from insider threat.
