Linda Springer, a former controller at the Office of Management and Budget who's now with Ernst and Young, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss ways for finding agency's insider threats.

Springer discussed ways that agencies can detect threats from inside, as well as what agencies are doing well now.
