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.

[Additional members still being invited]
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 2015 must occur through
the workshop submission system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mist2015
Submissions must be at most 12 pages in double-column ACM format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/ proceedings-templates) including the bibliography and well-marked appendices.
Submissions must be anonymized and avoid obvious self-references. Only PDF files will be accepted.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Each accepted paper must be presented by an author, who will have to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline.
