Cyber Attacks have been increaing at an alraming rate. For example, the attack on DYN compnay on October, 2016 have resulted in the cutoff of Internet services in the North East of the USA. The Dyn company is an organization that controls many of the Domain Name Servers that service American domains. This widely successful attack utilized the now infamous Mirai – a nasty piece of malware that powers an extensive botnet largely populated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Advancements in Internet of Things (IoT), wireless, advanced robotics, intelligent agents, cloud computing and other technologies, as well as reliance on 3rd party commercial-off-the-shelf software, will also increase the cyber-attack surface in systems and networks.
Given the ability of the human immune system to detect all infections and how the human body can be related to the complex network of interconnected systems that exist today, our proposal takes a biological approach to solving the network intrusion detection problem. Our proposed bio-inspired system for network intrusion detection makes use of the models that exist in immunology which has been abstracted to an area under artificial intelligence known as artificial immune system (AIS). The proposed system will be a combination of the immunology-developed theory of self-nonself (SNS), and danger theory (DT). The proposed system stems from our successful application of SNS and DT respectively to the detection of cyber attacks that originate from external networks. Our proposed system will be detecting cyber-attacks that originate from both inside and outside a communication network.

Technology is swiftly changing the landscape of care and delivery frameworks whereby healthcare organisations can now help patients through the utilization of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies / systems to improve patients’ health outcomes and experiences by using rich health data and insights to enable a holistic patient diagnosis. Globally healthcare organisations are unconsciously challenged to keep stride with patient behaviour and expectations for digitally mobile and accessible systems of care.
There are hurdles for healthcare organisations in regards to the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies this includes the lack of interoperability with current patient record electronic system, suppliers accountability for failures, data storage, consent and data sharing, password protection and the management of the multiple connected devices from various suppliers. Other published hurdles are the tremendous quantity of hospital and multiple streams of patient data from various devices and readiness for the hospitals information technology departments to manage data security, compliance with information governance, data regulations and cyber security which are to be risk managed on a daily basis. Despite the hurdles, the benefits of fully embracing Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies within healthcare is a welcome advancement in modern healthcare.
