Counter-Insider Threat 2024 Symposium

September 4-5, 2024 - Washington, DC, United States

The Only Whole of Community Insider Risk Event

The 9th Annual Counter Insider Threat Symposium will bring together leaders and experts across the private sector and federal government to discuss the current insider risk environment, as well as the technologies and policies necessary to disrupt and dismantle those threats and safeguard sensitive information.

As organizations of all sizes continue to face data breaches and unauthorized disclosures because of insider threats, it has become increasingly important to ensure sufficient investments are being made in advanced counter insider threat programs. Organizations must look at behavioral, financial, and cultural indicators in addition to implementing adequate data security measures. Attendees will hear from leaders, experts and partners from across the public and private sectors about the need for the development and implementation of a robust counter insider threat strategy across the public and private sectors.

*Event is open to FVEY Citizens Only (US, UK, AU, NZ, CA)*

Why You Should Attend

In 2023, the average cost of insider threat incidents was over $16 million. This represents an 80% increase since 2016, with American companies bearing the greatest increase in cost. According to an IT security study conducted by Imperva in 2021, "58% of incidents that negatively impact sensitive data are caused by insider threats". Of these incidents, 61% can be attributed at least partly to abuse or malicious intent, rather than innocent human error.

As organizations continue to face data breaches and unauthorized disclosures because of insider threats, it has become increasingly important to ensure sufficient investments are being made in advanced counter insider threat programs. Organizations must look at behavioral, financial, and cultural indicators in addition to implementing adequate data security measures. Attendees will hear from leaders and experts about the need for the development and implementation of a robust counter insider threat strategy across the public and private sectors.

The team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in human and technical analysis from leaders and key policymakers across both military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
