Diabetes Technology Book Excerpt:

We live in a century of technological revolution and the birth of artificial intelligence. Like every other sphere of our life, diabetes-related technology is moving forward with lightning speed. New and improved insulin administration devices, increased capacity for monitoring one’s blood glucose levels, and the ability to communicate directly with the device supplying insulin as well as with the patient and his/her healthcare provider have changed diabetes therapy forever. The problem is that diabetes-related technology is moving ahead much faster than physicians and other healthcare professionals can incorporate these advances into our practices. Diabetes Technology will consist of three parts: Part I addresses the clinical science of diabetes pumps, continuous glucose monitoring and communication technology with numerous practical aspects. Part III offers personal stories of healthcare providers who treat their own diabetes with modern diabetes technology. In particular, they will address how and why they decided to use this technology and the positive and negative aspects of their decision.

How Healthcare Data Privacy Is Almost Dead and What Can Be Done to Revive It Book Excerpt:

The healthcare industry is under privacy attack. The book discusses the issues from the healthcare organization and individual perspectives. Someone hacking into a medical device and changing it is life-threatening. Personal information is available on the black market. And there are increased medical costs, erroneous medical record data that could lead to wrong diagnoses, insurance companies or the government data-mining healthcare information to formulate a medical ‘FICO’ score that could lead to increased insurance costs or restrictions of insurance. Experts discuss these issues and provide solutions and recommendations so that we can change course before a Healthcare Armageddon occurs.

Ethical Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures for Cybercrime Prevention Book Excerpt:

As personal data continues to be shared and used in all aspects of society, the protection of this information has become paramount. While cybersecurity should protect individuals from cyber-threats, it also should be eliminating any and all vulnerabilities. The use of hacking to prevent cybercrime and contribute new countermeasures towards protecting computers, servers, networks, web applications, mobile devices, and stored data from black hat attackers who have malicious intent, as well as to stop against unauthorized access instead of using hacking in the traditional sense to launch attacks on these devices, can contribute emerging and advanced solutions against cybercrime. Ethical Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures for Cybercrime Prevention is a comprehensive text that discusses and defines ethical hacking, including the skills and concept of ethical hacking, and studies the countermeasures to prevent and stop cybercrimes, cyberterrorism, cybertheft, identity theft, and computer-related crimes. It broadens the understanding of cybersecurity by providing the necessary tools and skills to combat cybercrime. Some specific topics include top cyber investigation trends, data security of consumer devices, phases of hacking attacks, and stenography for secure image transmission. This book is relevant for ethical hackers, cybersecurity analysts, computer forensic experts, government officials, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the latest techniques for preventing and combatting cybercrime.

Fast Facts Digital Medicine Measurement Book Excerpt:

Technology is changing how we practice medicine. Sensors and wearables are getting smaller and cheaper, and algorithms are becoming powerful enough to predict medical outcomes. Yet despite rapid advances, healthcare lags behind other industries in truly putting these technologies to use. A major barrier is the cross-disciplinary approach required to create digital tools, a process that requires knowledge from many people across a range of fields. 'Fast Facts: Digital Medicine – Measurement' aims to overcome that barrier, introducing the reader to core concepts and terms and facilitating dialogue. Contrasting 'clinical research' with routine 'clinical care', this short colorful book describes types of digital measurement and how to use and validate digital measures in different settings. And with the burgeoning development of digital medicine tools, the authors provide a timely overview of the security, ethical, regulatory and legal issues to be considered before a product can enter the market. Table of Contents: • What is digital medicine? • Where does digital medicine fit? • Regulatory considerations • Ethical principles and our responsibilities • Ethics in practice • Security, data rights and governance • Digital biomarkers and clinical outcomes • Measurement in clinical trials • Verification and validation • The future of digital medicine

The Internet in Everything Book Excerpt:

A compelling argument that the Internet of things threatens human rights and security and that suggests policy prescriptions to protect our future The Internet has leapt from human-facing display screens into the material objects all around us. In this so-called Internet of Things—connecting everything from cars to cardiac monitors to home appliances—there is no longer a meaningful distinction between physical and virtual worlds. Everything is connected. The social and economic benefits are tremendous, but there is a downside: an outage in cyberspace can result not only in a loss of communication but also potentially a loss of life. Control of this infrastructure has become a proxy for political power, since countries can easily reach across borders to disrupt real-world systems. Laura DeNardis argues that this diffusion of the Internet into the physical world radically escalates governance concerns around privacy, discrimination, human safety, democracy, and national security, and she offers new cyber-policy solutions. In her discussion, she makes visible the sinews of power already embedded in our technology and explores how hidden technical governance arrangements will become the constitution of our future.
