Sharing of security and threat related data is believed to greatly enhance the 
ability of organizations to defend against sophisticated cyber-attacks. Yet there
are a number  of technical and policy challenges to effective sharing and 
collaboration. Which information exactly should  be shared? How can privacy 
and confidentiality be protected? How can we  create high-fidelity intelligence
from shared data without getting overwhelmed by false positives?

The 2nd Workshop on Information Sharing and Collaborative Security (WISCS 2014)
aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, industry and
government to present innovative research, case studies, and legal and policy 
issues in information sharing.  

This one-day workshop precedes the ACM CCS conference and features technical 
presentations  of 6 full papers, 2 short papers and one keynote talk. For more
