On May 18, 2016, the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence issued NISPOM Change 2, which requires cleared contractors to establish and implement insider threat programs.  These programs must be consistent with Executive Order 13587 and the National Insider Threat Policy and Minimum Standards for Executive Branch Insider Threat Programs.  
Led by key figures in government Insider Threat policy and program offices, this panel will discuss the evolving development of insider threat programs within both government and contractor entities.  Panelists will explore the current framework of requirements, technologies, and processes being employed, as well as opportunities for small businesses to support innovations in this growing industry in the public sector.
