Utilizing case studies of traitors ranging from Benedict Arnold and Kim Philby to mass leakers Snowden and Manning; Canada's Morrison, Brunet, Delisle, and a very recent Canadian case, this workshop examines the psycho-social drivers of betrayal, as well as its external triggers. Using a cross-section of traitors, participants will examine the critical pathways to betrayal, discovering the intervention points for prevention and mitigation.
The course will highlight the organizational predispositions and behaviours that can exacerbate low-risk insider threats. Organizational culture and shortcomings share responsibility with insider threats and their receptive external platforms. Instruction will consist of short lectures designed to promote discussion, encouraging participants to offer their views.
"This was by far the best and most interesting course I've taken in years. The prof was very knowledgeable and provided many great examples that were interesting and relevant." - Past Participant
