Duringthe 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.

Title: Anomaly Detection and Social Interactions:A Social Informatics approach for Insider Threats

Social informatics is the study of information and communication tools under different cultural and community contexts and how people interact with each other using those tools in computer-mediated environments. It concerns the design, uses and consequences of information technologies that take into account their interaction with different social contexts. These new forms of communication enable our social interactions being digitally analyzed real-time at a large scale, which poses both new challenges/concerns and opportunities to the community of cyber security. One potential area of development under social informatics is anomaly detection on social behavioral models for online users. For instance, social exchange theories developed in cultural anthropology, neoclassical economics, communication and psychology can be applied to analyze how power relations shape interaction between individuals, and ways to achieve balance in these relations. Various forms of social capitals, derived from social networks, might be considered as quantitative measures regarding common set of expectations, shared values, and a sense of trust among people connected in these networks. In this talk, a model of social interactive networks will be presented and, more importantly, we will discuss how this new model can be potentially applied to the context of anomaly detection for insider threats.
