Cyber Security Awareness Event Focuses on Fight Against e-Crime


Chet Hosmer, senior vice president of WetStone Technologies Inc., and Lisa R. Bock, instructor of computer information technology at Penn College and event organizer “Hiding in Plain Sight,” part of Penn College’s observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, was held Tuesday afternoon in the PDC’s Mountain Laurel Room. The rapid evolution of malicious software whether used for concealing data, destroying data, unauthorized access or identity theft is affecting business operations around the globe. In addition, the growth of digital steganography (a technique for hiding digital content inside seemingly innocuous computer files) has introduced a significant hurdle for defense, intelligence and law-enforcement investigations into cyber crime, cyber terrorism and espionage. Chet Hosmer, senior vice president of WetStone Technologies Inc., showed attendees how organized criminals are breaking through and how individuals can strengthen their computer defenses to keep them out.
