Call For Papers
3rd International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats (MIST 2011)
November 30 - December 2, 2011, Fukuoka Institute of Technology, Fukuoka, Japan
(in conjunction with the 3-rd INCoS-2011 International Conference)
Submission Deadlinet: July 23, 2011
Acceptance Notification: August 10, 2011
Camera-Ready: September 15, 2011
During the past decades, information security developments have been mainly concerned
with preventing illegal attacks by outsiders, such as hacking, virus propagation, and spyware.
However, according to a recent Gartner Research Report, information leakage caused by
insiders who are legally authorized to have access to some corporate information is
These leakages can cause significant damages such as weakening
the competitiveness of companies (and even countries).
Information leakage caused by insiders occurs less frequently
than information leakage caused by outsiders, but the financial damage is much greater.
Countermeasures in terms of physical, managerial, and technical aspects are necessary
to construct an integral security management system to protect companies' major information assets
from unauthorized internal attackers.
The objective of this workshop is to showcase the most recent challenges and advances
in security technologies and management systems to prevent leakage of
organizations' information caused by insiders.
It may also include state-of-the-art surveys and case analyses of practical significance.
We expect that the workshop will be a trigger for further research and technology improvements
related to this important subject.
