Embracing the copilot model should transform additional physical or electronic monitoring into a welcome means of summoning assistance. It should also limit opportunities for a hostile insider to act against the institution. Ultimately, greater transparency and work redesign should limit opportunities for clandestine and damaging activities by eliminating the dark corners that insider threats need to do their worst.

This is the No Dark Corners approach that reconfigures the job to reduce the chances of an individual to occupy a sensitive area undetected. It breathes life into this security prescription of management expert Tom Peters while exhorting security professionals not to see their contribution exclusively in the character of corporate sentinels: I don’t want you to be security people for the organization, but to make everyone else in the organization a security person. You don’t “do” security. You help all the employees do it … You win the game when I and my colleagues are the real security people in the place.

On the surface, it would appear that such a team is merely relieving assigned corporate sentinels of their snooping duties. After all, as organizational consultant Stephen Covey has observed, suspicion can generate the behaviors that managers and leaders are defending against, thus fostering a collusive environment of distrust. 28 Extending the copilot and cockpit metaphor from the preceding discussion on probation, however, offers an answer to this apparent contradiction. In line with the cultural shift to internal team monitoring, every team member becomes not an inquisitor but a copilot.
