Editorial Reviews

Review

"Throughout the work, Nick Catrantzos brings his experience in government and the private sector to bear in innovative and effective ways. Catrantzos focuses on critical issues such as why infiltrators are more dangerous than ordinary disgruntled employees, what deception is all about and how it relates to insider threats, and how senior organizational officials have more tools available to them than they realize to deal with such situations."
—Reviewer: Mayer Nudell, CSC, Security Management, September 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a welcome contribution to the study of insider threats - the dangers posed by individuals who have legitimate entrée to trusted information and access to systems within institutions or infrastructures. According to a study carried out by CISCO, 39 percent of IT professionals surveyed were more concerned about insider threats than about external hackers. Disgruntled employees, those recruited by outsiders or those who purposefully infiltrate an organization pose a serious threat to companies, the economy and national infrastructures.
Catrantzos's book fills an important niche in bringing together the various aspects of this phenomenon in a way that others have not previously done. While studies exist that focus on aspects of the phenomenon: such as the mindset and motivations of individuals who become insider threats or those that focus on technical solutions to enhance information security, prior to the publication of Managing the Insider Threat, the field lacked a comprehensive tome that addressed all aspects of the issue. Happily, Catrantzos has rectified this problem and his work looks not only at new research into the insider threat phenomenon but also at the key players that impact the degree to which this problem can be mitigated or, failing that, managed. In addition, Catrantzos looks at best practices in the area of background investigations, detecting deception and the legal tools and pitfalls involved in coping with insider threats. Finally, the book looks at categories of insider threats, from existential ones to those that can lead to individual workplace violence or individual acts of embezzlement.

Format: Hardcover
Formidable and so much more than just a text for students. A solid reference tool for military and civilian organizations in which the failure of organizational policy and leadership awareness can lead to a dark corner where human assets can violate their own code of conduct. Should be required reading for anyone concerned with Homeland Security, Force Protection, Information Security and Law Enforcement.

Well written book on an important subject that is often overlooked by large organizations. Since very little research has been done on this subject, I found this to be a one-of-a-kind book worthy of a read.

This is an essential text for all who take the issues and practice of Homeland Security seriously and a practice manual for all who are on the front lines in fighting trust betrayal.

I first met and worked alongside Nick Catrantzos nearly 30 years ago on some of the nation's most secretive projects.

The secret he reveals in this fine book is that most of the most devastating and most frequent security breaches in government and private enterprise alike come not from clandestine foreign villains but from numbskull insiders who either inadvertently or through malice towards their coworkers and raw greed reveal institutional confidences and betray trusts in ways that can hurt and destroy the strongest enterprise.
