Webinar: Malware Analysis
Oct 20 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm


Capturing and analyzing malware has many benefits. It allows the analyst to discover the techniques used by the hacker to try to hide the malware from detection, how the malware infects the host computer, the overall purpose of the malware, and the steps required to clean the malware off the infected system.

This National Cybersecurity Institute webinar shows the steps required to accomplish these tasks, and examines the skills and tools needed to perform the analysis.

 Presenter: James Antonakos

James is a SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of Computer Science at Broome Community College, in Binghamton, NY, where he has taught since 1984. Antonakos is the designer and director of the new 2-year AAS Degree in Computer Security and Forensics at Broome Community College. James is the author or co-author of over 40 books on computers, networking, electronics, and technology. He is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.

Webinar: Cybersecurity of Medical Devices
Oct 21 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm


We see the stories announced in the headlines:

  • The FDA has published final guidance for medical device cybersecurity
  • The FBI has found that healthcare organizations lag behind in cybersecurity readiness. Medical device vulnerabilities are a major factor in that assessment.
  • Many medical devices are susceptible to Heartbleed (OpenSSL) exploit

Few cybersecurity concerns in healthcare are more pressing than the issues relative to medical devices. These special purpose computing machines are increasingly networked with each other, the electronic health record, and the internal and external healthcare network.

The proper use and maintenance of medical devices is essential in patient care. A large part of the concerns with cybersecurity of medical devices has to do with patient safety. On one hand, it is important to mitigate vulnerabilities like malware to keep medical devices operating safely. On the other hand, tailored cybersecurity controls or compensating controls must be considered and put in place to avoid creating a medical device malfunction. Sometimes, implementing a cybersecurity solution can have an unintended patient safety consequence.

Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Learn the impact cybersecurity practices have on medical devices
  • Understand the regulatory pressures and patient safety concerns
  • Value the contributions of IT departments and biomedical engineers
  • Gain insight into specific steps an organization can take to manage medical devices’ cybersecurity

Presenter: Sean Murphy

Sean Murphy is the Vice President at Leidos Health Solutions Group and serves as the organization’s Health Information Privacy and Security Officer. He is a health care information security expert, with nearly 20 years of experience in the field serving at all levels of health care from the hospital to an international integrated delivery system.

Webinar: National Cybersecurity Strategies in Developing Nations
Oct 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm


National Cybersecurity Strategies: What are Developing Nations to do?

Developing nations with limited human and technical resources are faced with populations that demand access to new technology and a global economic space that allows access to economic development through technology. But the technology also brings significant risk.

What can these countries do at a policy level to better position themselves for success?

This webinar will assess the current developments at an international level and highlight emerging best practices in cybersecurity policy development.

Presenter: Dr. Kevin Newmeyer

Currently the Senior Operations Director for the CREATEtm project of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program, Dr. Newmeyer has successfully held a variety of positions in the military, academia, international civil service, and the private sector. His research focuses on international policy issues in cybersecurity. Along with his Ph.D. in Public Policy from Walden University, Dr. Newmeyer’s educational career is highlighted by his selection as an Olmsted Scholar which enabled him to earn his MA in International Relations from the Instituto Universitario Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, Spain.  He holds additional degrees from Escuela Diplomática of Spain (Diplomado de Estudios Internacionales), George Mason University (MBA), and the US Naval Academy (BS). Dr. Newmeyer is also a fellow at the National Cybersecurity Institute.
