Team Novo Nordisk er et globalt sportsteam med flere end 100 cykelryttere, triatleter og løbere, som alle har diabetes, hvor det professionelle cykelhold er flagskibet. Formålet med Team Novo Nordisk er at udbrede kendskabet til diabetes og give diabetikere ny viden og inspiration i deres dagligdag.

Trofeo Laigueglia er blandt de indledende løb i den Internationale Cykelunions (UCI) Europe Tour 2013-kalender. Løbet er Team Novo Nordisks første mulighed for at udfordre den nye trup, der består af 17 professionelle ryttere med diabetes fra 10 forskellige lande.

"Team Novo Nordisk er en del af vores mangeårige Changing Diabetes® program, der har til formål at skabe opmærksomhed om og bremse den globale diabetesepidemi, som påvirker 371 millioner mennesker i hele verden og deres familier," siger Jakob Riis, koncerndirektør i Novo Nordisk.

Trofeo Laigueglia er et årligt tilbagevendende endagsløb på 196,5 km, som i 2013 kan fejre sit 50-års jubilæum.

"Vi glæder os til vores første cykelløb som et 100% diabeteshold," siger Phil Southerland, medstifter og CEO for Team Novo Nordisk. "Når man bliver diagnosticeret med diabetes, tror mange mennesker, at de ikke længere er i stand til at leve et normalt liv og realisere deres drømme, men Team Novo Nordisk viser, at med god diabetesregulering er alting muligt."

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
