Utilizing case studies of traitors ranging from ideological moles Kim Philby and Oleg Gordievsky; to mass leakers, Snowden and Manning; Canada’s Jeffery Delisle (DND), Gilles Brunet (RCMP) and James Morrison (RCMP), this workshop examines the psycho-social drivers of betrayal, as well as its external triggers. Using a cross-section of betrayers, this course will examine the meaning of loyalty and reliability in an age of entitlement and increasing narcissism.
The workshop will also highlight the damage insider threats pose to public and private sector organizations, as well as preventive and mitigative measures used to safeguard one's assets and brand. Instruction will consist of short lectures designed to promote discussion, encouraging participants to offer their views.
