As Industry 4.0 spearheaded by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) ushers in a new era of connected devices that are continually online, sharing data and interlinking processes, it becomes increasingly vital to secure them. The Industrial Cybersecurity Division plays a vital role in The Ohio State University’s Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME), driving the growth, adoption and discovery of advanced cybersecurity practices in the industrial and manufacturing sector. We strive to significantly enhance the safety, security and reliability of digital systems used in contemporary industrial and manufacturing processes by combining innovative cybersecurity methodologies with emergent technologies, like IIOT, Blockchain and artificial intelligence alongside existing technologies, such as SCADA.

Our multidisciplinary team combines expertise in cybersecurity, electrical engineering and computer programming to bolster both traditional and emerging industrial systems against cyber threats. We work hard to create secure manufacturing systems, safeguard data integrity and confidentiality, and develop resilient digital infrastructures.

In collaboration with other academic institutions, industry partners and government agencies, we are working to deliver robust, secure and scalable cybersecurity solutions that fortify US industrial cybersecurity resilience and bolster our competitive edge in the global marketplace. This aligns with CDME's overall aim of conducting applied research with industrial partners and fostering the academic growth of undergraduate students participating in research activities.

We have extensive experience in developing embedded medical devices, including implantables. Moreover, we have the capacity to interact with an array of custom sensor technologies, giving rise to innovative products such as wearables and autonomous handheld battery-powered units. These sensors usually interface with a microcontroller, with the data wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth Low Energy, LORAWAN, and XBEE to an Android tablet for analysis.

If you are interested in joining us in this exciting and crucial journey, let's connect.
