Protecting Against Insider Threats

The International Nuclear Security Forum (INSF) invites you to a discussion on insider threats. Recent investigations into the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol have revealed that many involved were active-duty military, law enforcement, and, in one case, a former employee of a nuclear plant. This disturbing news raises serious questions about the effectiveness of insider threat programs in the United States. Join security experts for a discussion on how nuclear and non-nuclear facilities around the world can best protect against insider threats.
