Insider Threat | Behaviours and Cultures | Personnel Security
No organisation is immune from insider risk. It only takes one person to develop a grudge or make a silly mistake for your reputation and bottom line to be seriously damaged. We can help you identify and address the risks using a ‘whole-organisation’ approach.
The trust paradox
Your organisation may find itself in a dilemma. On the one hand, you intuitively know that you need to demonstrate trust to your employees to win their loyalty and commitment. On the other hand, you know that unconditional trust costs. You can resolve this apparent trust paradox with the right approach.
Blacksmiths’ behavioural scientists work with the grain of your organisational culture rather than against it, supporting you to talk to your people about insider risk in a way that reinforces rather than undermines trust. Being able to harness the insider risk awareness of your people is critical in spotting problems early.
A few things we’re great at
Every client’s needs are unique. We design our projects and apply ourselves to suit your goals, budget and operations, but here are some common methods and services we can use to support you.
We will perform a bespoke assessment that gives you an understanding of your greatest vulnerabilities and what you can do about them.
With vulnerabilities identified, we will develop an insider risk programme to support you in reducing risks according to your organisational risk appetite.
Our advisors and behavioural psychologists will create high-impact, evidence-based training packages tailored to your organisation’s culture.
