Organizations still feel vulnerable to attack despite implementing cybersecurity standards

IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, August 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to IT Governance USA's ISO 27001 Global Report, there was a 25% increase in data breaches in 2017, making cybersecurity a top concern for organizations worldwide. The report found that 60% of organizations that have implemented cybersecurity standards believe it is likely that they are still a target for an attack.

Key findings:

• ISO 27001 and the GDPR: Nearly half (43%) will be implementing an ISO 27001- compliant ISMS (information security management system) to enable them to maintain compliance with the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
• ISO 27001 and competitive advantage: more than half (57%) the respondents implemented this standard specifically to gain a competitive advantage
• The overwhelming majority (89%) of organizations believe the single greatest benefit of implementing ISO 27001 will improve their information security
• ISO 27001 and benefits: Two thirds of organizations believe implementing ISO 27001 improves their security posture – 3% jump from the 2016 and 2015 reports
• ISO 27001 supply chain security: Nearly half (41%) said customers inquired about their ISO 27001 status, a 4% increase from 2016

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Unfortunately, as long as cybercrime remains a lucrative trade, risks will continue to escalate, and attackers will continue to proliferate. To counter this, organizations need to be fully prepared. ISO 27001, an information security standard designed to minimize risks and mitigate damage, offers the preparedness organizations need.”

About the Report

Conducted online, the survey polled 128 people worldwide. Sixty four percent of respondents were from Europe, 20% from Asia, 9% from North America, 5% from Africa and 2% from South America. Respondents work within the technology and media, professional services, finance and manufacturing, supply and construction business sectors. To view the report in full please click here.

PARIS, FRANCE, FRANCE PARIS, August 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — La start-up française skydesign se lancera cet automne avec un système de partition innovant qui se veut plus que fonctionnel: le principe de base du séparateur de pièce skydesign est la flexibilité, l'adaptabilité individuelle et l'optimisation du flux énergétique dans les espaces intérieurs et extérieurs.

Room Divider

La start-up, également basée à Paris, a été fondée par Robert Graf, entrepreneur et expert en design d'intérieur. Guidé par la vision d’un design intérieur fonctionnel et esthétique, le Carinthian a développé un séparateur d’espace Extremis Sticks qui peut résister aux exigences les plus élevées. L'utilisation flexible et mobile, l'adaptabilité individuelle et l'esthétique de bon goût sont, selon Graf, la priorité absolue du produit.

Une préoccupation particulière de l’équipe de skydesign est le choix des meilleurs matériaux pour garantir la longévité du séparateur d’extrémités Extremis Sticks. Le polyéthylène a donc été choisi pour la plaque inférieure, l'un des matériaux les plus utilisés et les plus coûteux pour les meubles de luxe. Les barreaux de la cloison sont en fibre de verre fine. Ces matériaux rendent la cloison de séparation résistante à la chaleur, au gel et aux UV et très durable.

Après une phase intensive de planification et de développement, le prototype est maintenant arrivé à maturité. La cloison sera lancée sur le marché cette année.

Mental Health Watchdog Calls for Investigation into the Connection Between Violence and Psychiatric Drugs

Between 2004 and 2012 the FDA’s safety information and adverse event reporting program, known as MedWatch, received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects.

Between 2004 and 2012 the FDA’s safety information and adverse event reporting program, known as MedWatch, received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects.

Psychiatric drugs have been documented by 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings, including the U.S. FDA, to cause side effects of mania, hostility, violence, and even homicidal ideation in a percentage of those prescribed.

Psychiatric drugs have been documented by 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings, including the U.S. FDA, to cause side effects of mania, hostility, violence, and even homicidal ideation in a percentage of those prescribed.

Following another act of senseless violence CCHR is once again imploring officials to investigate the possibility that psychotropic drugs are the root cause.

We are urging lawmakers to immediately look into the connection between psychiatric drugs and the deadly events that transpired in Jacksonville and earlier this year in Parkland, Florida.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to investigating and exposing abusive psychiatric practices in the name of mental healing, is calling upon Florida lawmakers to investigate the plausible link between psychiatric drugs and violence.

Following another act of senseless violence, this time in Jacksonville, The Florida chapter of CCHR is once again imploring officials to investigate the very real possibility that the dangerous side effects of psychotropic drugs are the bottom of these tragedies.

For the past 20 years, CCHR has been investigating and exposing the correlation between mass murder, violent crime, suicide and psychiatric drugs. During this time CCHR has reported that those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs have committed at least 36 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence.[1] This interrelationship is not surprising when it is taken into account that psychiatric drugs have been documented by 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings, including the U.S. FDA, to cause side effects of mania, hostility, violence, and even homicidal ideation in a percentage of those prescribed.[2]

The fact that individuals committing these murders have been or were under psychiatric treatment is often made public by the media. Multiple news sources have already made it known that the suspected gunman, David Katz, in the Jacksonville Landing mass shooting had been “twice hospitalized in his teenage years for mental illness, and that he was prescribed anti-psychotic and anti-depressant drugs.”[3]

According to CCHR an investigation into the link is long overdue pointing out that between 2004 and 2012 the FDA’s safety information and adverse event reporting program, known as MedWatch, received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects, including 1,531 cases of homicidal ideation/homicide, 3,287 cases of mania, and 8,219 cases of aggression.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights is urging lawmakers to immediately look into the connection between psychiatric drugs and the deadly events that transpired in Jacksonville and earlier this year in Parkland, Florida.[4] For more information on psychiatric drugs and side effects, please call CCHR Florida at 727-442-8820 or download the free online report “Psychiatric Drugs: Create Violence & Suicide”.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

myStrength’s Evidence-Based, Digital Behavioral Health Platform Receives Investment from Zoma Foundation

Web and mobile applications support the identification of perinatal mental health risks and provide families with greater access to evidence-based digital maternal health topics including depression, anxiety, relationships, infertility and miscarriage

Investment will expand digital maternal mental health services to improve the emotional health and well-being of families with young children

By creating unique resources to strengthen the mental health of parents and caregivers, we positively impact the mental health and development of the children”

— myStrength's CEO, Scott Cousino

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — myStrength, Inc., a leading provider of digital behavioral health solutions for more than 150 of the largest U.S. healthcare payers and providers, announces that Zoma Foundation has made a $1.2 million program-related investment in the company.

Zoma’s investment will expand digital maternal health services for families with young children. The Zoma Foundation was co-created by Ben and Lucy Ana Walton, based in Denver and founded in 2016.

The investment will aid the development and delivery of web and mobile applications specifically designed to support the identification of perinatal mental health risks and provide families with greater access to a full spectrum of evidence-based digital maternal health topics including depression, anxiety, relationships, infertility and miscarriage. Pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-pregnancy tools, resources and coaching services will promote resiliency, empowerment and coping skills. Further, these services will be made accessible through myStrength’s rapidly-expanding payer and provider partnerships.

“Supporting mothers during pregnancy and postpartum has long lasting societal impacts. We are excited for this partnership and are confident our investment in myStrength will help aid in the development and delivery of evidence-based maternal mental health services, which is critical for whole family health and well-being, and will set another example on how philanthropy can partner with other sectors to catalyze social change,” said Luis Duarte, President of Zoma Foundation.”

The myStrength-Zoma Foundation partnership, and Zoma’s investment, represents an alignment of focus to increase screening for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and extend access to evidence-based maternal mental health services across broad populations — thereby increasing the health and well-being of whole families.

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders represent the most common complication in pregnancy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as one in five women will experience postpartum depression. Perinatal depression has been associated with many poor outcomes, including maternal, child and family unit challenges. The lasting impacts of perinatal mental health issues underscores the need to provide early screening and support for parents during the prenatal and postpartum phases.

myStrength’s CEO, Scott Cousino, shared, “We are unequivocally aligned with Zoma Foundation’s mission-focused commitment to support mental health for parents and families. By creating unique resources to strengthen the mental health of parents and caregivers, we positively impact the mental health and development of the children.” Cousino added, “This is an exciting investment that will allow us to rapidly grow our evidence-based applications and extend treatment technologies to populations in need.”

myStrength’s digital platform offers real-world clinical outcomes and delivers measurable impact on healthcare costs, further validating the company’s value to healthcare payers and providers.

It’s about making the unknown known and assuring clients, be they internal or external, that, in the end, it can be beneficial to take the risk,” says Gina. “My job as a sales operations analyst is all about foreseeing the problem and creating solutions. My job is completely proactive with analyzing data and trends, marketing Aon’s capabilities and solutions locally, creating and standardizing internal processes, and serving as a project manager on deliverables. I’m looking at the whole operation from a bird’s eye view, seeing what’s vulnerable, where the exposures and liabilities lie, and I start generating solutions to get a process running like a Swiss watch and making a large project seem doable to others.”

That kind of genuine enthusiasm is hard to find. It’s why Aon has invested in Gina, mentoring her to be a future leader while also encouraging her to serve as a mentor to others.

“Insurance, overall risk management actually, is a very stalwart industry with a need for millennials,” says Gina. “I’m just one of them collaborating with the various generations, and, in turn, guiding Generation Z, working to help everyone move forward.”

Gina says one of her life goals is to empower others and serve as an inspiration for others to reach their potential.

“I’ve had mentors who instilled in me certain values, teaching and grooming me to be a leader. Why not give back? I’ve been assigned a few mentees, both peers and interns, and it’s been a great experience with them thus far. It’s a mutual investment to mold the next generation, the next workforce. I learn from them just as much as they learn from me.”

Asked what advice she has for young professionals just like her, Gina says, “Never stop learning,” and “You have to show them your worth by being engaged, putting your name out there, and doing as much as you can to gain visibility. I can’t speak for all millennials, but I try to inspire others, whether millennial or another generation, to do the same.”
