This July 16-17, ISTS and Dartmouth's Computing Services will host the seventh annual Securing the eCampus conference on the Dartmouth campus. As always, the overarching topic is information security in higher education. This year's conference will include discussions on issues of multi-factor authentication, malware, cyber crime, privacy, and recent legislation, among others. The conference traditionally brings together CIOs, CISOs, and other security leaders from academic institutions throughout the northeast. Click here for registration information.

The third Securing Information Technology in Healthcare workshop (SITH3) will take place May 16-17 at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business. The SITH workshops bring together experts from many disciplines to discuss information technology in healthcare. This year the focus will be on mHealth – the application of mobile computing technologies to health and wellness. Panel discussions will cover the Intersection of mHealth and Behavioral Health, Evolving Business Models in mHealth, Opportunities for mHealth in the Developing World and Challenges in Securing mHealth Infrastructure. Keynote speakers will be Patty Mechael, Executive Director of the mHealth Alliance and Wendy Nilsen, Health Science Administrator, Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research at NIH.
ISTS is hosting the SITH3 workshop with generous support from the Center for Digital Strategies at the Tuck School of Business, in cooperation with the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health, and with funding from the National Science Foundation and the Dartmouth Conferences.
A new video released by Dartmouth provides an overview of the cutting edge research and education and outreach efforts at the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS). These efforts are designed to address the most critical issues affecting information security and privacy and the societal impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in an increasingly networked world.

Trustworthy Information Systems for Healthcare (TISH). This project's multidisciplinary research will drive innovation in information-sharing technology that ensures security and privacy while addressing the pragmatic needs of patients, clinical staff, and healthcare organizations to deliver efficient, high-quality care. The National Science Foundation is funding this multi-year effort.
Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG). As noted on the TCIPG website, "Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, the University of California at Davis, and Washington State University are together addressing the challenge of how to protect the nation's power grid by significantly improving the way the power grid infrastructure is built, making it more secure, reliable, and safe." This project is funded by the Department of Energy.
