MIST 2010 : 2nd International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats
Call For Papers
The 2nd International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats (MIST 2010)
June 14-15, 2010, Morioka, Iwate, Japan
(in conjunction with IFIPTM 2010)
Outstanding papers from MIST 2010, after further revisions, will be published in
Special Issue of Security and Communication Networks (SCN)(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.
