A security analyst has been notified that trade secrets are being leaked from one of the executives in the
corporation. When reviewing this executive’s laptop, they notice several pictures of the employee’s pets are on
the hard drive and on a cloud storage network. When the analyst hashes the images on the hard drive against
the hashes on the cloud network, they do not match.
Which of the following describes how the employee is leaking these secrets?
Steganography is the process of hiding one message in another. Steganography may also be referred to aselectronic watermarking. It is also the process of hiding a message in a medium such as a digital image, audio

your message in another file or message and use that file to hide your message.
