What is Insider Risks?
An ‘insider’ is a person who exploits, or has intention to exploit, their role for unauthorised purposes. They may be full or part‐time permanent employees, individuals on attachment or secondment, contractors, consultants, agency staff or temporary staff. Correspondingly, an ‘insider risk’ refers to the possibility of an insider exploiting or intending to exploit their role for unauthorised purposes.
This course aims to give delegates an understanding of the potential threat posed by insider activity and how to manage insider-related vulnerabilities. The course will explore how the use of insiders has been exploited by those with malicious intent in the past and how both physical and personnel security measures have evolved the counter the threat. The course will draw on a number of expert sources to define key terminology and equip delegates with strategies and tools to identify and manage risks in a proportionate and sustainable manner.
This course is suitable for individuals from National Aviation Authorities, government and industry who are responsible for implementation and oversight of aviation security regimes. In addition, those with responsibility for recruitment, vetting and other aspects of personnel in civil aviation should attend.
