AC Global Risk is exhibiting this week at the International Symposium on Insider Threat Mitigation in Brussels, Belgium. The symposium is the ideal forum for creating international awareness, discussion and action on the security of nuclear and other radioactive materials.
Insider threats are an epidemic in the commercial and government industries. Few organizations share the complexity and importance of the global nuclear-protection arena. With a specific mission to deter and disrupt insider threats, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and Belgium’s Federal Agency of Nuclear Control (FANC) International co-hosted the Insider Threat Mitigation Symposium from March 12-14 in Brussels.
This Symposium continues to build awareness of and acknowledgement that the insider threat is credible and poses a serious threat to the security of nuclear and other radioactive materials. The symposium is not a business as usual conference. Attendees are looking for the best-in-class solutions to combat threats. AC Global Risk has been heavily engaged with many of the 45+ countries represented at the symposium explaining how our voice-analytics technology works and how the Remote Risk Assessment (RRA) can be employed to support this critical mission.
Relevant themes discussed at this year’s symposium include how our solution, Remote Risk Assessment (RRA), can positively impact organizations.
- Time between security investigations can be lengthy – up to 4 years in some cases. At 10 min per person and the ability to run 100’s of interviews in parallel – isn’t nuclear protection worth it?
- Zero additional IT infrastructure costs to deploy RRA – for developing countries, IT costs are a non-starter.
- Protecting radioactive sources (category 1 and 2) for hospitals is a huge challenge, especially when visiting physicians come from developing countries where background investigations are non-existent.
- While insider threats can be catastrophic – hiring the right employees in the first place is a great start.
