MIST 2017 
the **9th ACM CCS International Workshop on Managing Insider Security Threats, 
Dallas, USA,  
Oct. 30 - Nov. 3, 2017
(Submissions due 4 August 2017) 

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.
