4th International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats (MIST 2011)
November 8-9, 2012, Nishijin Plaza, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan

In Cooperation With
IPSJ SIG on Security Psychology and Trust (SPT)
IEICE Technical Committee on Information and Communication System Security(ICSS)

Submission Deadline: August 31, 2012
Acceptance Notification: September 30, 2012
Camera-Ready & Registration: October 12, 2012

We are proud to announce the following confirmed invited speakers:

(1) 1st Invited Talk
- Speaker: Prof. Eugene H. Spafford (Purdue University, USA) at
- Title: Inside, Outside -- But Clearly Not on *Our* Side

(2) 2nd Invited Talk
- Speaker: Prof. Dieter Gollmann (Hamburg University of Technology, Germany)
- Title: TBD

During the past two decades, information security technology developments have been mainly concerned with intrusion detection to prevent unauthorized attacks from outside the network. This

includes hacking, virus propagation, spyware and more. However, according to a recent Gartner Research Report, information leaks have drastically increased from insiders who are legally

authorized to access corporate information.

The unauthorized leak of critical or proprietary information can cause significant damage to corporate image and reputation, perhaps even weakening its competitiveness in the marketplace. On

a larger scale, government and public sectors may suffer competitive loss to other nations due to an internal intelligence breach. While the leaking of critical information by insiders has a

lower public profile than that of viruses and hacker attacks, the financial impact and loss can be just as devastating.

The objective of this workshop is to showcase the most recent challenges and advances in security and cryptography technologies and management systems for preventing information breaches by

insiders. The workshop promotes state-of-the-art research, surveys and case analyses of practical significance. Physical, managerial, and technical countermeasures will be covered in the

context of an integrated security management system that protects critical cyber-infrastructure against unauthorized internal attack. We expect that this workshop will be a trigger for

further research and technology improvements related to this important subject.

Authors are invited to submit original papers: they must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other

conferences that have proceedings.

The submission of contributions to MIST 2011 must occur through the workshop submission system:

The submission file is in PDF or PS file format produced via the Easychair Latex Class file (US letter size) [available at]

Each paper should be 10-15 pages long based on the Easychair style.
Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop.

All papers will be published in the following journals:
Journal of Wireless Mobile Networks, Ubiquitous Computing and Dependable Applications (JoWUA)
- ISSN (print): 2093-5374, ISSN (on-line): 2093-5382

Journal of Internet Services and Information Security (JISIS)
- ISSN (print): 2182-2069, ISSN (on-line): 2182-2077

Authors of good papers presented at MIST 2012 will be invited to extend their paper for the following SCIE indexed journals:
(1) Journal of Supercomputing (Springer, SCIE)
(2) Computer Science and Information Systems (SCIE,

More SCIE or EI indexed journals will be invited.
