"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."
