Call For Papers

The First International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats(MIST 2009)

Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA, June 15-19, 2009
(In Conjunction with IFIPTM 2009)

Hot News!
Distinguished papers accepted and presented in MIST 2009,
after further revisions, will be invited for a Special Issue of Information
Systems Frontiers (indexed by SCIE)


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 increasing dramatically.
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.

**Important dates
Paper Submission deadline: March 22, 2009
Acceptance notification: April 22, 2009
Camera-ready due: April 30, 2009

**Author Instruction
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
2009 must occur through the IFIPTM2009 submission system
( Submissions
must be in English and conform to the IFIP Series format. See for templates (MS Word or Latex
only). Submissions must not exceed more than 16 pages, including
tables and figures, and must be in PDF only. 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.

**Proceedings and Special Issue
All accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings, to be published by Springer under the auspices of the
IFIP WG 11.11 on Trust Management. The proceedings will be
available at the workshop. At least one author of an accepted
paper must register at the conference site and present the paper
at the workshop.

After the workshop, the authors of the best papers will be invited
to submit extended versions for a Special Issue of Information
Systems Frontiers (indexed by SCIE) on Security Management and
Technologies for Protecting Against Internal Data Leakages. For
more detailed information about the special issue, please visit:
