ARE YOUR AIR GAPPED NETWORKS REALLY SECURE?

| December 21, 2016

There is a false sense of security that organizations have regarding the security of their SCADA systems and most valuable assets. They feel that because they have air gapped networks, that it limits the access to the Internet and the rest of the corporate network. Even this practice is not always followed by some organization, but for this thought we will say they implemented a textbook air gapped network. So what does this leave you as far as potential attack vectors. This leaves only the human that might infect the environment either unintentionally or through convenience.

You’ve Heard of 5G. Now Meet Wi-Fi 6.

Article | April 9, 2020

Got Wi-Fi problems? Future routers will at least be ready for the next pandemic. With much of the U.S. on home lockdown to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we’re all more aware than ever just how important Wi-Fi is — and it’s something many of us probably took for granted until now. Before the pandemic, most everyone was focused on 5G, the next big thing in mobile-internet technology, and the possibilities it would create for our smartphone-brandishing on-the-go lifestyles. The country has been in a hurry to build out new 5G wireless networks that are fast enough to do things such as download movies in the blink of an eye, and someday even power driverless cars. Except “on the go” and “drive” don’t mean much when we’re literally not going anywhere these days.

Can 5G make you more vulnerable to cyberattacks?

Article | March 15, 2020

Many enterprises and sectors are unaware of the 5G security vulnerabilities that exist today. Choice IoT says it’s critical for businesses to have a plan for discovering and overcoming them at the outset of a 5G/IoT platform rollout to avoid future cybersecurity disasters. There is a big difference between the promise of 5G low latency, higher bandwidth, and speed for businesses versus the security of 5G. While many are excited about Gartner’s prediction of $4.2 billion being invested in global 5G wireless network infrastructure in 2020, few discuss the business costs of its unheralded security holes.

5G’s promise: A new heartbeat for healthcare

Article | March 8, 2020

Picture this: An ambulance rushes a seriously injured patient to the hospital. In the back, the paramedic makes a video call with doctors while sending them real-time vital signs and images of the injury. It doesn’t look good. The paramedic pulls out what looks like an oversized ski glove connected to wires and grabs an ultrasound wand that a sonographer in an office somewhere virtually steers over the patient’s injury. The sonographer then reviews the images for signs of trouble.
