Lone Offenders, Radicalization, and Violence Prevention

Mon. September 25| 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM | C155/156

Security and threat assessment professionals need to expand their organization's workplace violence prevention program to identify and respond to behaviors that may be indicative of insider radicalization. Guidance can be found in case studies on "lone offenders," or individuals who attempt or complete an act of violence to further an extremist cause. Review insights from both the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit and Control Risks that focus on identification, management, and intervention strategies.

Session Number: 4307

Priority Subject Matter: Crisis Management, Terrorism, Workplace Violence

Event Structure: Panel Discussion

Learning Objectives: Articulate unique insights into active shooters, violent extremists, and “lone wolf” terrorists, including intervention and management strategies specific to the spectrum of individuals of concern, from the personally aggrieved to the apparently ideologically motivated.; Recognize indicators of radicalization in terms of observable behaviors associated with a deepening engagement and commitment to a particular political or religious ideology.; Discuss advanced pre-attack behaviors which include preparation necessary to reinforce a psychological readiness to carry out an attack which is often intended to culminate in the death of both themselves and others.
