Cyberbiosecurity: An emerging new discipline to help safeguard the bioeconomy

Following up on the cyberbiosecurity article posted a few weeks ago, this one by Murch et al. steps away from the strong agriculture focus of the prior and examines cyberbiosecurity from a more broad perspective. Not only do the authors provide background into the convergence of cybersecurity, cyber-physical security, and biosecurity, but they also provide a look at how it extends to biomanufacturing facilities. They conclude that cyberbiosecurity could be applied to various domains—from personalized genomics and medical device manufacturing to food production and environmental monitoring— though continued "[d]irect and ordered engagements of the pertinent sectors of the life sciences, biosecurity, and cyber-cybersecurity communities," as well as tangentially within academia and government, must continue to occur in order "to harmonize the emerging enterprise and foster measurable value, success, and sustainability."

Introduction to Cybersecurity

This self-paced four-week University of Washington course is designed to help learners "gain an overview of the cybersecurity landscape as well as national (USA) and international perspectives on the field." The course is free to take and requires on average two to five hours a week of effort.
