Security implications for 5G and IoTBy Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, Vice President Strategy and Analytics, Fortinet When combined with today’s powerful edge devices — whether consumer-grade smart devices or the new generation of industrial-grade Internet of Things (IoT) devices — the impact of 5G on business and networking strategies would be transformational. There are important implications for digital transformation that need to be considered, especially when it comes to securing the new network environments that 5G and edge-based computing would create. As 5G begins to be widely available, several things would happen. In addition to exponentially faster speeds, 5G would introduce greater capacity, reduced latency and more flexible service delivery.

Michael Morgan and partner Julian Holts were terminated by Detroit's fire administration last month after using a Zoll monitor-defibrillator, a device designed to detect and evaluate cardiac rhythm problems and heart attacks — and it reports out CPR feedback, which the union contends was used against the men in their dismissals. The fire union, in a March 4 complaint, noted that the Jan. 4 run was the first in which the two-man crew deployed the Zoll monitor-defibrillator.

Supported by ByBen Shpigel Dec. 7, 2018 HOUSTON — The flashes came, at first, in jagged intervals: a sharp cut, a smooth scramble, an assertive plant-and-throw, the ball whistling toward a receiver. One after another, these flashes tantalized Deshaun Watson’s coaches and teammates on the Houston Texans, and in time they became expectations, and soon thereafter — a few games into this season, give or take — those expectations matured into a state of predictable comfort. There was no revelatory moment. One day, it just sort of happened.
