Amplify Intelligence Cyber Security Experts – Paul Byrne CEO | Founder

This week Amplify Intelligence with their partners Gallagher aims to concentrate on a range of aspects encompassing both cyber security, and cyber insurance.

The greatest cyber challenge small business face is the belief they are not at risk. After this, it is how to manage all possible threats & costs without deep security expertise. We solve this problem”

— Paul Byrne – Founder | CEO at AMPLIFY INTELLIGENCE LIMITED

MELBOURNE, VIC, AUSTRALIA, October 20, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Cyberweek 2020" is upon us.

Cyber Week allows cybersecurity experts the opportunity to provide valuable information to small businesses, networks and peers, and build relationships with prospective investors and consumers.

It also offers a perfect opportunity for business owners and company executives to truly grasp what cyber protection means to them and their customer information – and how a lack thereof can result in the significant financial or reputational damage, and sometimes even legal penalties. To a cybercriminal, customer or business data is like gold.

Cyber attacks against Australia have increased in frequency in recent months, Defence Minister Linda Reynolds said on Friday the 4th September 2020, as the country released its first cyber security threat report which cited 4,500 hacking attempts in one day.

Traditional approaches to security that small businesses use such as security awareness, antivirus, Antimalware or Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) are not effective alone to stop these.

One security solution alone can not prevent a cyber breach, even if it is the best in its field.

Enterprise knows this and follows standards such as ISO27001 with a defence in depth approach which is greatly lacking for small businesses. This is what Amplify Intelligence and Gallagher are looking to solve, bringing a layered approach to the cyber defence for small businesses.

> As our insurance partner in providing cyber security risk management tools for businesses, Gallagher contributes valuable advice and guidance on strategy to help clients safeguard their business systems, data, intellectual property and communications.
> For those involved in cyber security for business protection this event showcases
> Cyber fitness of Aussie small business
> Australia under cyber attack – are you ready?
> Driving change through opportunity – carving out a pathway beyond the pandemic
> AIC: Investing in Australian cyber security – why it's important for building digital trust
and many more areas where cyber insurance provides critical back-up to practical security measures.

Amplify Intelligence tailors their cybersecurity service to your business security needs.

As cyber crime is a constantly evolving threat, we believe that the responsible business owner cannot afford to risk reliance solely on protection from an unknown threat – make yourself a harder target, and reduce the cost of insurance by operating within a more secure system.

As time goes by, we are learning that the softer targets are also more likely to be the target. Criminals tend to go for the easy money, as it is a lower risk for them. These businesses may realise that they can cover this risk with insurance, however, they will be paying a significantly higher premium.

67% of small businesses that have experienced a cyber attack will not recover – they will declare bankruptcy within a year – this is a hard pill to swallow but it is a fact that is not often discussed.
The danger is that your business might continue to operate at a disadvantage for weeks, months or even years as a result of an undetected and continuing hack.

Cyber criminals operate without borders. Criminals are not geographically limited to the victims they can physically reach, and many may not even be affected by local laws.

Amplify Intelligence is aware of this threat and has partnered with Gallagher to bring sophisticated enterprise-level protection to small business.

We remove the complicated clutter and address the threats faced by your business, and Gallagher provides advice and coverage from loss that may be incurred after an attack.

Come to our booth at CyberWeek to learn how Gallagher and Amplify Intelligence can protect your business!

Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed Discussing the Need for Continuous Rapid Testing and Reopening the Economy

Voip-Pal (OTCQB:VPLM)

People should be tested every three days and every business should be equipped with a testing machine like a vending machine, capable of conducting a rapid coronavirus test with results in minutes.”

— Emil Malak

LONDON, ENGLAND, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped101420.html) by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Voip-Pal.com Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In this most recent article, Mr. Malak renewed his calls to expand continuous rapid testing as the solution to reopen the world’s economies. Malak wrote, “In the meantime, the only solution to return life to normal is by expanding continuous rapid testing. People should be tested every three days and every business should be equipped with a testing machine like a vending machine, capable of conducting a rapid coronavirus test and delivering results in minutes.”

Mr. Malak cited the recent about face by the World Health Organization saying, “Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has reversed course on lockdowns. The WHO initially told us that lockdowns were necessary to get the virus under control and would be the new normal. Now they have backtracked and realized lockdowns are ineffective and do much more harm than good.”

Malak went on to say, “The United Kingdom and other European countries should cancel their current lockdown plans and replace them with continuous rapid testing of all its population.
Additionally, we need to continue good practices like regular hand washing, maintain social distancing and wearing masks whenever indoors, or whenever near other people when outdoors.”

Mr. Malak also shared his thoughts on a study linking neanderthal genes and severe cases of COVID-19, “Scientists have found a link between neanderthal genes and severe COVID-19 cases. When researchers compared the genetic profiles of about 3,200 hospitalized COVID-19 patients and nearly 900,000 people from the general population, they found that a cluster of genes on chromosome 3 inherited from Neanderthals who lived more than 50,000 years ago is linked with 60% higher odds of needing hospitalization. According to the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, COVID-19 patients that had this gene cluster were also more likely to require artificial breathing assistance. The paper titled “The major genetic risk factor for severe COVID-19 is inherited from Neanderthals” was coauthored by Svante Paabo and Hugo Zeberg and published on September 30, 2020.”

Mr. Malak continued, “This newly discovered connection could be the reason why people in Europe, the Americas, Asia, India, and Indo-European Iran are more likely to develop a more lethal coronavirus than Africa and the Middle East.”
https://www.republicworld.com/lifestyle/health/neanderthal-dna-in-patients-can-can-make-covid-19-more-severe-study.html

Malak, who has many years of experience dealing with the U.S. patent system hinted he may be writing a future article on the current state of patents in the United States saying, “Unfortunately, owning a U.S. patent today can be meaningless. It is no longer an asset but a liability.”

Does Medicare Pay For Shingles Vaccine? – AARDY Insurance

AARDY Insurance Surfing

AARDY Insurance Surfing

Many seniors are surprised to learn that Medicare Part D covers the shingles vaccine, not Medicare Part B.

In the US, there are nearly 1 million new cases of shingles each year, so a doctor is likely to recommend that a senior receive the shingles vaccination.”

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AARDY is the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace.
Customers can compare Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans to find the one that best fits their needs.

Shingles is a viral infection that mostly affects older adults or those with weakened immune systems. Typically, adults over age 50 receive the shingles vaccine.

Fortunately, there is a vaccine for shingles. It can prevent or lessen the effects of the shingles virus.
Many seniors are surprised to learn that Medicare Part D covers the shingles vaccine, not Medicare Part B.

AARDY CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:
‘In the US, there are nearly 1 million new cases of shingles each year, so a doctor is likely to recommend that a senior receive the shingles vaccination.

Most Medicare Part D plans cover 50% or more of the vaccine cost. Customer should check which vaccine brand their policy covers by checking the Part D drug formulary (guide). Having determined in which tier the vaccine is, they will then know how much their plan pays.

Note also that the amount paid depends on which brand of shingles vaccine is administered: Zostavax or Shingrix.

Zostavax requires only one injection. In 2018, the average cost was $220. So, if a Medicare Part D plan pays 50%, there would be a $110 out-of-pocket charge.

Shingrix requires two injections, 2 to 6 months apart. In 2018, the average cost was $140 per dose, or $280 total. If the Part D plan pays 50%, there would be a $140 out-of-pocket.

Those customers with a Medicare supplement, Medicare Advantage plan, or private health insurance, may pay less out-of-pocket.’

Each year, between October 15 and December 7, Medicare provides an opportunity to sign up or change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). Other names are Medicare Fall Open Enrollment and the Annual Election Period.

AARDY donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners.
Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.

The report covers the test results of the last two months, August and September 2020, for Enterprise Endpoint Security Products.

The results are based on a in-the wild test set including zero-days, exploits, malwearefiles and other threats. You can find details on the speed impact of all Endpoint Solutions as well.”

— Peter Stelzhammer, co-founder AV-Comparatives

INNSBRUCK, TIROL, AUSTRIA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AV-Comparatives has released the October Fact Sheet for its Business Main Test Series. Endpoint protection products for Windows from 19 security vendors were tested:

Acronis, Avast, Bitdefender, Cisco, CrowdStrike, Cybereason, Elastic, ESET, FireEye, Fortinet, G Data, K7, Kaspersky, Microsoft, Panda, Sophos, SparkCognition, Vipre, and VMware.

The report covers the Malware Protection Test, and August / September results of the Real-World Protection Test. The Malware Protection Test checks each security product’s ability to protect a PC against malicious files. These might be already on the system, on an external drive, or copied over the local areanetwork. The Real-World Protection test tests the products’ ability to protect against Internet-borne threats.

Any malwaresamples not detected in the initial stages of the respective test are executed on the test system. This allows the security products to use additional protection features, such as behavioural analysis, to detect the malware. Each test also includes its own false-positives check, to ensure that business users are not plagued with false alarms.

AV-Comparatives’ Main Test Series additionally includes the Performance Test, which measures the speed impact of the tested security products.

A summary report, containing the full and detailed results of all three tests, as well as in-depth reviews, will be published December. In combination, the three tests provide an overall picture of the effectiveness of the tested endpoint security products.

Like all AV-Comparatives’ public reports, the report of the October 2020 Business Test Fact Sheet can be downloaded free of charge from the institute’s website, www.av-comparatives.org.

AV-Comparatives is an independent testing labbased in Innsbruck, Austria, and has been publicly testing computer-security software since 2004. It is ISO 9001:2015 certified for the scope “IndependentTests of Anti-Virus Software”. It also holds the EICAR certification as a “Trusted IT-Security Testing Lab”.

$525,000 Recovery for Motorist who Showed Subtle Signs of Brain Damage

Our client could not return to his job because he mentally lost the ability to cope. It was as if he was suffering dementia or a psychiatric disorder.”

— Neil Chapman

EVANSVILLE, IN, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Chapman Injury Lawyers announce a recent brain injury settlement of $525,000.00 negotiated by remote video conferencing Zoom software during a Court-ordered mediation. The plaintiff, a 60-year-old Evansville resident, was stopped on Interstate 69 for a construction project when he was rear-ended by an SUV at high speed. The plaintiff suffered some bleeding in his brain and spent 3 weeks at the St. Vincent Medical Center. Despite recovering the ability to walk, talk and appear "normal," he became a different person. "Relatively 'mild' Traumatic Brain Injuries can be deceptive," according to Neil Chapman, lead lawyer on the case. "Many times our clients may look perfectly normal. But they suffer a collection of chronic symptoms that are relatively subtle and not immediately associated with traumatic brain injuries. Examples included symptoms such as vertigo, balance, visual disturbances, hearing loss, sensitivity to noise and light, and crushing anxiety. In this case, our client could not return to his job because he mentally lost the ability to cope. It was as if he was suffering dementia or a psychiatric disorder."

While medical science has come a long way with treating mild to moderate traumatic brain injury, it can be challenging to obtain the cutting-edge treatment to maximize a brain-injured person's recovery. "The latest treatments involve intensive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It is difficult to find providers of these therapies, and remains expensive and controversial for insurance companies. We have a long way to go in the area of treatments for Traumatic Brain Injuries," according to Chapman.

Chapman continued, "Another thing we emphasized in our settlement negotiations was the likelihood that our brain-injured client faced a substantial risk of early-onset Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's Disease, or other affective disorders. This evidence was introduced by our consulting expert witness, Dr. Rebecca O'Bryan, an Assistant Professor of Clinical Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. O'Bryan's examination and written report helped us tell our client's story and persuade the insurance company that our client's quality of life was permanently diminished."

Benn, Haro & Isaacs Law Firm to Rebrand to Workinjuryrights.com

WorkInjuryRights.com is committed to helping workers' compensation clients throughout Florida

________________________________________

David Benn Super Lawyer - Top Florida Workers' Compensation Attorney

The firm will re-brand in an effort to provide prospective clients with a more accurate depiction of their full suite of legal services.

Our hope is the new content will confirm for those affected by on-the-job injuries that we will be their greatest advocates because we recognize the struggle.”

— David Benn, founder of WorkInjuryRights.com

CORAL SPRINGS, FLORIDA, USA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Benn, Haro & Isaacs, PLLC has announced they will be shifting their firm name and website domain to WorkInjuryRights.com, as the firm seeks to more precisely illustrate their commitment to fighting for workers’ compensation claims.

While the current site Accidentlawyerfl.com offers extremely comprehensive information on the workers’ compensation process—such as how to report an accident or what to do when a claim is denied—the new site promises to be even more robust. In addition to the existing information on the site, WorkInjuryRights.com will provide details on how to handle specific workers’ comp situations based on where they occur, the cause of the accident, and the resulting injury.

For example, prospective clients will have resources available to help them determine how to handle reporting a workers’ compensation claim at various types of businesses as well as while traveling for work. BHI will also provide information on how to handle cases ranging from operating heavy machinery to dangerous tools such as a welding torch. Clients can also navigate resources that explain the process for dealing with a variety of injuries, from something as simple as a lifting accident to a more complicated traumatic brain injury.

“Every workers’ compensation case is unique, but having worked with so many claims over the years, we recognize a lot of situations have some areas of overlap,” said David Benn, one of the firm’s founding attorneys. “We saw an opportunity to give visitors to our site a window into our understanding of their situation. Our hope is the new content will confirm for those affected by on-the-job injuries that we will be their greatest advocates because we recognize the struggle.”

The site goes live today, but those in need of additional workers compensation information or representation right now can still visit accidentlawyerfl.com for whatever they may need in handling the process. Additionally, the current site provides excellent information on the firm’s previous case results, attorney profiles, and resources for Spanish-speaking clients.

ASA Insurance Discussed College Students and Car Accident Statistics

Affordable car insurance to protect your family from liability in the Salt Lake City area

Top provider of car insurance in the Salt Lake City area.

A top provider of car insurance in Salt Lake City regularly offers advice and information to get drivers and their families safe.

We want college students to be aware of the dangers they face when they get behind the wheel of their car”

— Creed Anderson

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A top provider of car insurance in Salt Lake City regularly offers advice and information to get drivers and their families safe.

According to a study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, “about 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor-vehicle crashes.”

ASA Insurance in Salt Lake City is always looking for ways to promote safe driving for younger drivers by educating them on the dangers they face behind the wheel. While college drinking has become a ritual for many students, it can have serious consequences if the person gets behind the wheel.

Another factor that contributes to car accidents by college students is sleep deprivation. With late-nights spent studying or long trips home on the weekends, sleep deprivation is all too common. Fatigue leads to inattentiveness and a loss of alertness and slower response time. Understandably, this is problematic behind the wheel. Distractions such as texting while driving and talking to other passengers also contribute to accidents.

"We want college students to be aware of the dangers they face when they get behind the wheel of their car," says Creed Anderson of ASA Insurance. "We want to help them make good decisions when they are faced with these issues."

These good decisions begin with saying "no" to getting in the car with someone who has been drinking or giving up the keys when the person drinking is them. It also means not going somewhere after an all-night cram session for a test. Other ways of making responsible decisions to prevent a car accident include riding a bike or walking to class when the driver is not as alert or by choosing a designated driver before a night out.

When college students look for car insurance in Salt Lake City, they’re sure to get better rates if they are accident-free. Each accident they are involved in or every driving citation they receive, their rates can go up.

Making the right decisions about being behind the wheel begins before you set foot in a car. ASA Insurance hopes to encourage young drivers to think about these events and their long-term consequences. College students must also encourage their peers to make smart decisions when it comes to driving. Positive peer pressure can help prevent accidents that are the result of too much alcohol or fatigue from a lack of sleep.

Parents should also be involved in educating and influencing their college student children. Even if your children are no longer living under your roof, parents can still have an impact with their words. It’s important to encourage their kids to make solid decisions about driving. Many students with car insurance in Salt Lake City are still on their parents' insurance plan, a fact that gives them even more influence.

Partying and studying hard are a part of the college experience for most students. At the same time, decisions made now can affect their future, which is why it is important to make responsible decisions in regards to driving to ensure the safety of everyone.

Drivers in Salt Lake City can contact ASA Insurance at any time to learn more about finding effective auto insurance policies for their needs.

SICCODE.com Releases New Update to SIC Codes

SICCODE.com - The Leader in SIC & NAICS Codes

The Leader in SIC & NAICS Codes

SIC Codes Offer a More Specific Breakdown of Industries vs. NAICS Codes

USA, October 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — SICCODE.com, a business classification company announced today that it has added 3 new SIC Codes to its classification system, bringing the total to over 10,000 SIC Code Extended classifications for businesses in the USA. The U.S. Government's last update to the SIC Code System was in 1987 with 1,005 4-digit industries specified.
“There are actually 10,023 SIC Code Extended categories in the system now with new codes added this year in the solar and marijuana industries” commented Data Specialist Jack Francis. “We have to stay on top of the emerging trends in the business world and account for new industries”. “There has been much misinformation circulating about SIC Codes being outdated. In our Data Department, even though we provide both SIC & NAICS codes for each business, we encourage the use of the SIC Code System because it can target most industries better than NAICS Codes. I usually explain to businesses that there are 10,023 industries classified in the SIC Code system, whereas the NAICS system has only 1,057 unique industries. For example, NAICS Code 423830 – Industrial Machinery & Equipment Merchant Wholesalers can be mapped to 117 SIC Code Extended categories. If you were a marketer, wouldn’t you rather have the most specific classification for a business in your list or database?”
Over the last 20 years, SICCODE.com has become an authority in the business classification universe. Originally focusing on only SIC Codes, SICCODE.com added NAICS Codes and ISIC Codes in their classification database to reflect changes in usage and classification of businesses. Initially in the mid-1990s, there was talk in the USA about an entire shift from SIC Codes to NAICS Codes. However, in 2020, there still is mixed-use between both systems.
“Whether it is SIC Codes or NAICS Codes, a typical marketing department that I work with wants the most precise and targeted list of companies by industry. Therefore, we provide the SIC Code and NAICS Code for each business in the data that we provide. This way, the marketer can choose the targeting approach that best matches their campaign”.
