THE BIONET-A NEW CONCEPT OF IMAGERY OF THE INTERNET AND INTERNET SECURITY (CYBERSECURITY)
THE BIONET-is an interactive real-time image of the IoT (internet of the person's things) and the IoP (the internet of the person.)

IMAGE OF AN INDIVIDUAL’S PERSONAL BIONET
Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)
This is sketch 1 of the 2 you ask for, I use symbols for my sketches. This sketch shows the most basic elements of a cybersecurity image. This shows that in all cases a person is at the center of a universe comprised on things, humans, and the internet. The sketch shows that the complete universe includes things interacting with things, things interacting with humans, and humans interacting with humans, Sketch 2 of 2 incorporates these features into a functional image that is hyperlinked and represents specific data.
This is sketch 2 of 2. This sketch, or image, shows the relationship between the components of any image of cybersecurity. The image makes use of the very basic relationships shown in sketch 1 of 2, below. I develop images that show functional relationships. This sketch shows the relationships between the IoT and the IoP (the persons images in the center)surrounded by the internet and it's vulnerabilities hemi-circles and how both of these are related to each other to form the circle.
What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)
Please refer to my submission text that explains this in full. Putting my concepts of cybersecurity and the functional internet into images revealed more relationships than I was aware of or anticipated. What was surprising was that I became aware of the multiple roles the person plays in the cybersecurity dynamic. That is, not only is the person at the logical center of a cybersecurity universe, and at the center of the internet, it is the person who is responsible for both breaching vulnerabilities and establishing security.
Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)
I am a retired internist (UR, MD with Distinction in Research, 1976) having practiced IM almost 30 years in Roch., NY. Prior to that I was a bio-medical engineer (BSEE JHU, 66) for 7 years. I invented a device (The CARDIO-PROBE) to prevent heart block in infants during open heart surgery. I patented the MarinAid-er Tray, marinaider.com, a tray when placed under marinating food eliminates the need to turn the food over to marinate top and bottom.
In 2014 I published my first novel EXAM ROOM CONFIDENTIAL-The Wellborne Files, a novel about the darker side of medicine.
This month I will publish my 2nd. novel The Doctor Will Kill You Now about a deranged hacker who hacks into peoples medical records making people 'digitally ill' by changing their test results, turns down a hospital, and more. It is a cautionary tale and urgent warning of what can happen when our digital lives are laid bare for the taking by a deranged hacker with malicious intent. I will be 79 in 4 days.
Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)
I saw the initiative as I was finishing up my psycho-cybercrime novel The Doctor Will Kill You Now, to be published this month. See brief description above. Many of the ideas in my book seemed to coincide with the ideas behind your search for a unified and useful image for cybersecurity. So, I put down my ideas not only for an image but a way to organize and, using an image, utilize the vast amount of data on the net.

What is your experience with the field of cybersecurity?
I have minimal experience and/or knowledge in the cybersecurity field.
