Paola will be speaking at the ICI Events “The Back to the Real World Summer Spectacular” event on July 14th, 2021. Her presentation will be on: The New Frontier – The Internet of Bodies. Did you ever think that as a cybersecurity or risk professional you would need to start educating yourself on transhumanism or cyborgs? The new frontier is the Internet of Bodies, and risk, security, and privacy professionals should take note. In this session we will explore what it takes to mitigate the traditional risk of IoT, in a new domain – the human body.
