Warkentin Presents During NATO Training Conference in Macedonia
Dr. Merrill Warkentin, Professor of MIS & Drew Allen Endowed Fellow, spoke during the 2016 NATO Advanced Training Course-- Countering the South-East European (SEE) Terrorist Threat-- in Ohrid, Macedonia in February. The training course promotes regional cooperation between NATO and partner countries in developing resilient responses, effective prevention of terrorist activities and significant counter radicalization processes in the SEE Region. Warkentin's presentation, titled, "Information Hiding in Support of Global Terrorism: Countering the Hidden Threat," explained how terrorist organizations use tactics such as steganography-- the practice of hiding messages within other nonsecret text or data-- and possible ways to prevent those messages from reaching those intended to receive them.
