## Overview

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 Report1), 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 outsiders2), 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.

Submissions must be at most 12 pages in double-column ACM format
(https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. MIST 2017 also welcomes short submissions of up to 4 pages 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.
