5G is revolutionizing connectivity in the home and on the move. But broadband service providers must consider the security implications. Irdeto recently joined a Telecoms World Asia webinar on Cybersecurity Threats in the 5G era. A key takeaway was the potential for security to be a big competitive differentiator.
What’s in a name? For ISPs there could be a whole load of business tied up in a simple change from “smart” to “connected”. Marketing “smart home” solutions could be excluding a huge chunk of the broadband subscriber base that doesn’t realize quite how smart their home has become.
With society being forced to stay home because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, people are increasingly turning to mobile devices and applications to occupy their time. Cyber criminals are seeking out any opportunity they can to take advantage of the current circumstances and hack into devices and networks.
Coronavirus has added a new dimension to family battles over screen time and web-use. These challenges will persist once lockdowns end. How can broadband service providers ensure they are giving families the parental control tools they really need?
With the usage of connected health technologies increasing greatly, it is important for us to understand the differences between Connected Health, Digital Health, and Telehealth and Telemedicine which are often used interchangeably.
With the increased need for ventilators due to COVID-19, manufactures are ramping up production to meet the soaring demand but are still falling short. Industrial heavyweights such as Ford, GM, Tesla, Dyson, and others have responded to the call by governments to address the ventilator shortage problem. Many have joined forces with MedTech manufacturers to convert their production facilities to assemble parts for ventilators.
As Coronavirus enforces unprecedented home working, hackers are also hard at work exploiting our fears. Insecure home networks are making this a giant cybersecurity challenge for employers. In the future, could homeworkers be forced to choose broadband from an ISP that has been security-approved by their company?
Increasing risk of cyberthreats looms as the world comes to a standstill from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. At
the same time, the global healthcare system struggles to address the growing number of people testing positive for the virus.
However, as we become an increasingly connected healthcare ecosystem, more vulnerabilities present themselves. There is a new wave of cyberattacks, particularly in healthcare, and it is imminent to “Safeguard against COVID-19 Personification,” as we take a look at securing critical healthcare services at risk.
Millions of us are working from home as COVID-19 restrictions take hold. For some, Wi-Fi strength is going to be a significant challenge. How will this experience change the way we work – and choose broadband suppliers – in the future? And what can ISPs do now to prepare?
In spite of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) challenges engulfing communities and economies all over the world, ConExpo went ahead and delivered another awe-inspiring show. Handshakes were replaced with fist and elbow-pumps and a new level of human awkwardness; like some weird kind of middle-aged breakdancing.
