The concept of Industry 4.0 involves a shift from relying solely on industrial machinery for production towards a focus on enhancing human capabilities through the integration of connected objects and intelligent solutions. This approach allows for the creation of innovative products and services that address various aspects of the human experience.
This shift toward integrating physical and digital technologies has become a global standard for accelerating innovation and reducing cost barriers in product development.
Recently, Career Communications Group hosted a seminar on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and how it merges cybersecurity and biomedical engineering in the healthcare industry.
The seminar aimed to highlight the importance and benefits of integrating cybersecurity measures into innovative biomedical products and healthcare services.
The IoMT represents a significant innovation in healthcare, as it integrates physical, digital, environmental, and biological resources for the first time in human history.
One example of this innovation is the use of nanotechnology particles to target cancer cells without harming healthy cells, a breakthrough in the battle against cancer. However, such disruptive technologies require robust cybersecurity measures to ensure that patients are protected and that smart equipment functions accurately.
During the seminar, panelists discussed the importance of cybersecurity in connected healthcare devices, including the benefits of managing risk through cybersecurity best practices. They also explored emerging innovations in the IoMT industry and the fundamentals of proactive cybersecurity planning and implementation.
The panelists included Ernest Smiley, chief data scientist & CISO at Kingdom Capital; Christopher Jock, global sciences practice director at Actalent Services; Dominique Hinton, data scientist at 202 Group; and Steve Austin, associate director of cybersecurity engineering at Raytheon Technologies.
