  • Cyber Security High-Risk Industries

    Welcome to the final blog in the series on Cyber Security. In this piece, we shall look at the industries at the highest risk of cyber-attacks. Let’s get right into it! Time changes fast, technology faster, and we are forced to adapt at the quickest speed. The more we start to rely on technology, the newer challenges and risks emerge. Cybercrimes are one such challenge. Every individual and organization that is connected to digital is always at the risk of a cyber-attack. Experts estimate that cybercrimes could potentially cost the world over US$10.5 trillion annually by 2025. However, specific sectors are more prone to cyber-attack than others. Let’s have a look…

  • Cyber Security for Small Businesses

    When talking about cybersecurity, it’s a common tendency to consider only the large corporates and MNCs. However, small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) are easier prey for cyber attackers because of the lack of cybersecurity measures in SMBs. This blog will look at the cost-effective steps SMBs can take to safeguard their business from cyber-attacks. Setting up a small business needs a load of effort, courage, and dedication. Still, at any given time, threats are looming to disrupt the business – competition, new technology, change in customer demand, etc. Moreover, today, a new threat always looms large on any business – cybercrimes. However, most SMBs do not acknowledge the danger and…

  • Cybersecurity: An urgency for manufacturers

    Welcome back to our series on cybersecurity. We hope you found our first blog interesting. Through this particular piece, we wish to convey how cybersecurity is essential for manufacturers and how they can take the first steps toward ensuring the security of their operations in the digital age. Read on! Over the last couple of decades, a considerable transformation has occurred in the manufacturing industry. Industry 4.0 has introduced modern production, monitoring, quality inspection, planning, etc., and manufacturers have reaped enormous benefits from their investments. In a nutshell, factories are increasingly becoming ‘smarter’ by the day. However, as more and more aspects of manufacturing get connected to the digital world…

  • Cybersecurity: A rising threat

    With increasingly global access to technology, cybersecurity is slowly becoming a major challenge these days. Every single business, individual, and government entity that is digitally connected in any way is now exposed to cyber attackers trying to access confidential data or cause damage. Given the upfront threat, we felt it was necessary to spread awareness about cybersecurity among our readers. We shall talk about the various aspects of cybersecurity through a dedicated series; today, let’s take a bird’ eye view of the entire concept. Hope you find it interesting. What is Cybersecurity? You would never want unauthorized people to access your data. But in the real world, that is not…

  • Impact and Rise of Service Robots in Healthcare

    Before we conclude the blog series on Robotics in Healthcare, we shall look at an essential type of robot taking the healthcare world by storm. Service robots relieve the burden on healthcare workers and paramedical staff by taking up routine logistical tasks. These robots can set up patient rooms, track supplies and file purchase orders, restock medical supply cabinets, and transport bed linens to and from laundry facilities. Delegating such tasks to robots helps the staff have more time for jobs that require human interaction and judgment. The rise of service robots The covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work with each other. Sanitation requirements and social…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Analyzing Risks, Reaping Benefits

    Welcome back to another blog in the series Robotics in Healthcare. Previously, we have looked at several new-age applications of robots in delivering healthcare and managing hospitals. Without a doubt, such applications are transforming how patients are treated and providing many benefits to patients, doctors, hospital management, etc. However, with advantages come a few risks and disadvantages too. What are those? Through this piece, we shall take a look at the benefits we can reap and the risks we must manage as far as the use of robots in healthcare is concerned. Read on! Reaping the benefits: Reduced errors The number of patients dying due to surgical errors has drastically…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Applications (Part 2)

    In the previous blog, we witnessed how robotics has proven to be a boon for the healthcare industry. The emergence of robotics in healthcare has resulted in an enhanced healthcare system by making complex surgeries, patient screening, and disinfecting hospital areas much simpler. Continuing from the previous list of robotics applications in healthcare, we shall look at four more ways robotics shall impact our health from now on. Read on! Microbots for disease detection We have seen how giant metal robots help assist with surgeries, but the scope of robotics goes way beyond that. Microbots, small-sized robots, have a mighty significance in the healthcare industry. They enable doctors to perform…

  • Robotics in Healthcare: Applications (Part 1)

    The series starting with this blog was chosen by you – our readers and followers. Thus, we are extra excited about sharing interesting information through the upcoming blogs. We shall be talking about the confluence of 2 industries that are heavily trending at the moment. Robotics and healthcare! Hope you find the series engaging.
