In Insider Threats(Cornell University Press, 2017), co-editors Matthew Bunn and Scott D. Sagan bring together a series of case studies and lessons learned spanning public and private sectors. Essays include discussions of the American anthrax attacks and the Fort Hood shooting with examinations of organizational issues that allow insider threats to emerge. A study of the gaming and pharmaceutical industries provides alternative frameworks to preventing theft and loss. Insider Threats concludes with a "Worst Practices Guide," to help high-security organizations dismantle assumptions that lead to security vulnerabilities.
