John Taylor, author of ‘The Psychology of Spies and Spying’ joined us and discussed what we can learn from the world of espionage in order to reduce the insider threats within our own organisations.
John is a senior research fellow in the Department of War Studies, King’s College London, having spent over 50 years working closely with the security and intelligence sector. He joined the Foreign Office in 1971, focussing initially on the Soviet Union, then broadened out to work on terrorism and in HR, including as head of training. He has worked with intelligence and security services worldwide and co-authored four books plus various papers on managing the dark side of behaviour at work and personality profiling.
SASIG’s Vice Chairman, Tarquin Folliss OBE, also joined the discussion to look at how employee motivations impact their employers, as well as the techniques we can learn from both intelligence officers and psychologists when it comes to resilience and security.
