** 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 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.
