One of the most important aspects of an Insider Threat Program (ITP), is protecting the privacy and civil liberties of employees. Ignore this critical aspect and a business might find itself involved in a lawsuit with a current or former employee.

Insider Threat Defense in conjunction with the Insider Threat Management Group (ITMG) has announced they will hold the Insider Threat Program Management With Legal Guidance Training 
Course on September 12th-13th at the Johns Hopkins University - Applied Physics Laboratory, in Laurel, Maryland.

Mr. Shawn Thompson of the ITMG / Insider Threat Training Academy is a licensed attorney with over 15 years of experience investigating and prosecuting malicious employees, and managing ITP's. He is
widely recognized for his insider threat expertise and unparalleled scope and breadth of experience. Mr. Thompson has been involved with creating and managing ITP's for numerous federal agencies. His
work with the National Insider Threat Task Force led to the creation of the National Insider Threat Policy and ITP Minimum Standards for Executive U. S. Government Agencies. (Bio)
