National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) Webinars to Explore Steganography, Threats to Health Care

The National Cybersecurity Institute at Excelsior College will host two webinars in the month of August.

Cybersecurity Threats in Health Care

August 18, 1 pm – 2 pm

As the healthcare industry has moved from paper-based records to more digital information transferred electronically, the risk of unauthorized disclosure of protected health information has increased. Healthcare cybersecurity professionals must be savvy to compensating controls and alternative measures to mitigate cybersecurity risk when it comes to managing the varied inventory of networked computers within the healthcare organization. 

Steganography: Hiding Data within Data

August 19, 3 pm – 4 pm

When you look at a digital image of a flower, do you ever consider that there might be a data file hidden inside it?

This is the purpose of steganography which is a technique for hiding data inside other data, in such a way that you do not suspect there is anything hidden. This poses a threat to security, as secret hidden information may be malicious in nature, undetectable, and even unreadable.

Join us for this webinar to better understand these complex issues and some possible methods for addressing them.
