Each month, CDSE’s Insider Threat Division will highlight current job aids and case studies for learning, professional development and for use as teaching tools for your insider threat programs.
This month’s feature is the Potential Risk Indicators: Active Shooter and Pathway to Violence job aid and a case study on Yu Zhou and Li Chen.
The Potential Risk Indicators: Active Shooter and Pathway to Violence job aid is now available (https://www.cdse.edu/Portals/124/Documents/jobaids/insider/potential-risk-indicators-kinetic-violence-jobaid.pdf). This job aid includes the traditional pathway models and features other concerning behaviors that remain relevant as potential risk indicators.
Yu Zhou and Li Chen’s case study details the career of the former researchers who worked for different doctors in separate laboratories at the Research Institute for Nationwide Children’s Hospital (RINCH) in Columbus, Ohio. Their research centered on exosomes, which play a key role in the research, identification, and treatment of a range of medical conditions. An investigation revealed that, over a number of years prior to their departure from RINCH, Zhou and Chen worked together to steal propriety information and then monetize trade secrets by creating and selling exosome isolation kits to China. The couple were arrested in California in 2019, plead guilty in federal court, and sentenced to prison for their roles in the scheme.
