Two New GDPR services launched by IT Governance

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ely, United Kingdom, 12 June 2018 – Despite more than a month having passed since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, compliance is still very much an on-going task for many as IT Governance announces two brand new GDPR Services.

The DPO Support Service and GDPR Data Privacy Manager are now available to help organisations continue their compliance journeys. Both products allow users to prepay for the support hours required without committing to a monthly contract.

IT Governance’s DPO Support Service provides extra resources to data protection officers (DPOs) who may find their responsibilities challenging particularly if fulfilling the role part-time or working for a group of organisations. The Data Privacy Manager Service is designed for those who are not required to appoint a data protection officer but are seeking the GDPR advisory support such a role provides.

Alan Calder, Founder and Executive Chairman of IT Governance, said: “It’s paramount organisations understand that despite the GDPR deadline having passed compliance hasn’t ended – it is only just beginning. A Data Privacy Manager and the DPO Support Service can both support any organisations still struggling with the DPO aspects of the GDPR.”

As a leading provider of GDPR expertise and solutions, IT Governance supports organisations of all sizes in tackling their GDPR compliance projects through certified GDPR training courses, books, documentation toolkits, staff awareness training, compliance tools and consultancy.

Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers Instant Access to the Nation's Top Lawyers for Recently Diagnosed Construction Workers in Idaho For A Much Better Compensation Result

If you do not hire the most qualified mesothelioma attorneys, you just might end up with a less-than-stellar mesothelioma financial compensation settlement”

— Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in assisting construction workers and skilled trades workers in Idaho with mesothelioma obtain the best possible financial compensation results. The group offers direct access to the nation's top lawyers who consistently get the best possible financial compensation results for their clients. As the group would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303, "Having the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys and receiving the very best financial compensation for this asbestos exposure form of cancer are directly related.

"Much like you would only want to hire skilled contractors when building a house or commercial structure, having the most experienced and qualified mesothelioma attorneys carefully advancing the claim, or numerous financial compensation claims, ensures higher success chance and compensation value as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The group would like to make 100% certain that a construction or a skilled trades worker such as an electrician, plumber, welder, or carpenter in Idaho with mesothelioma have the nation's top lawyers at their direct disposal; as opposed to having an inexperienced local personal-injury law firm or mesothelioma middleman broker law firm that has little to do with the compensation claim.

"If we had just one important tip for any recently diagnosed construction worker or skilled trades worker with mesothelioma in Idaho it would be this: "Measure two, three, or four times before you hire a law firm. Call us at 800-714-0303 before hiring a lawyer to assist with your compensation process. If you do not hire the most qualified mesothelioma attorneys, you just might end up with a less-than-stellar mesothelioma financial compensation settlement. Translation: you will get shortchanged on mesothelioma compensation." http://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in assisting people nationwide who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma because of their exposure to asbestos as a:

* Construction worker
* Electrician
* Plumber
* Welder
* Insulator
* Roofer
* Pipefitter
* Concrete specialist

The Center also puts a huge premium on treatment options for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Idaho the Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital: St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute Boise, Idaho: https://www.stlukesonline.org/health-services/service-groups/cancer-c … -institute.

The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Idaho including communities such as Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Coeur d’Alene, Twin Falls, or Lewiston. http://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Idaho include US Navy Veterans, miners, power workers, manufacturing workers, smelter workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers.

Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges A Hospital Employed MD or RN in Michigan to Call Them About Rewards if Their Employer is Forcing Medicare Patients to Be Admitted Rather Than Outpatient Treatment

Call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if your hospital employer is forcing you to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients to the hospital when more affordable outpatient care should have been provided.”

— Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says "We are urging a hospital employed medical doctor, or registered nurse in Michigan or any other state to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is forcing them to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients to the hospital when more affordable outpatient care should have been provided. In a recent example a hospital employee received $3.3 million dollars for this type of information. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

In a recent example the Department of Justice announced a company that operates acute care hospitals agreed to pay $18 million to settle allegations that 12 of its hospitals knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare by admitting patients who could have been treated on a less costly outpatient basis. As mentioned the whistleblower in this instance received $3.3 million dollars for their information.

The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center is especially interested in hearing from healthcare managers, medical doctors or registered nurses if they have specific proof of the following:

* A hospital is paying commissions to ER doctors to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients rather than providing treatment on an outpatient basis.

* A drug or alcohol treatment center in Michigan is simply warehousing drug addicts or alcoholics and charging Medicaid as if they are treating the patient/addict. As soon as the Medicaid funding runs out the patient is discharged.

* A hospice provider that is signing up homeless people or drug addicts who are not dying; and then billing Medicare for services never provided or for unnecessary medical procedures.

* A pharmaceutical representative bribing medical doctors to over-prescribe their drug products.

* A nursing home or skilled nursing facility billing Medicare for unnecessary extremely expensive medical tests involving ambulatory, speech, and or cognitive abilities.

* An in-home healthcare company that is grossly overbilling Medicare for hours never worked.

The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are a healthcare manager, a physician or registered nurse and you have proof a company is engaged in a multi-million-dollar scheme to overbill Medicare or Medicaid please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. Please do not sit on a potentially multi-million dollar winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.

Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Michigan based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Michigan can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Lee County Coveted Trial Date Obtained by Enterprise Holdings National Car Rental Grand Theft Crime Victim

National Car Rental 'ding and dent' fraud victim eager and optimistic with opportunity to present overwhelming crime scene evidence on open public docket

Enterprise has been accused of running a ding-and-dent scam so often by readers of this site, I’ve lost count.”

— Christopher Elliott, Consumer Advocate

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the trial date of August 22, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. EDT for the civil theft, intentional negligence, breach of good faith and fair dealing, and felony grand theft civil lawsuit, Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings and National Car Rental (18-SC-001768).

“Today I met with Enterprise Holdings counsel for a pre-trial mediation,” confirmed David Howe, United States of America child identity guardian and plaintiff in Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings and National Car Rental. “Although I appreciate the effort made by tortfeasor’s counsel and the professional mediator, we were unable to reach an agreement acceptable for each side.

“And that’s ultimately a good thing,” Howe continued. “Because from my perspective – as a crime victim and survivor of a predatory ‘ding and dent’ scam that’s reportedly harmed so many others that consumer advocate Christopher Elliott lost count (https://www.elliott.org/blog/enterprise-determines-damaged-rental/), it’s much more paramount for this particularly predatory case, including the remarkable crime scene evidence that was twice presented to Senator Marco Rubio’s staff and also the Office of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, to get the public exposure it so desperately deserves. Indeed, as most individuals know, mediation is confidential and therefore I’m unable to discuss any of the details from the hearing today.

“Of course, this case is much bigger than mere equity for one crime victim,” Howe continued. “It’s much bigger than the upcoming civil trial in Fort Myers, Florida, the location of the crime. In fact, as the professionals from FL AG Pam Bondi’s Office indicated to me during my hour-long meeting with Director Butler and senior investigators in 2017, this case is ultimately about desperately needed legislative efforts to change the legal predatory tactics of an industry that is able to strip a consumer of jury-trial due process through disgraceful arbitration clauses and unfair adhesion contracts, among others (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180428005028/en/Child-ID-Guardian-Howe-Congress-Enterprise-Car).

“To be sure, this case is really about U.S. lawmakers enacting uniform and predictable standards to protect the citizens of the United States — as well as our sisters and brothers from around the world who come to this nation and expect the good faith and fair dealing covenant, but who very often receive something quite to the contrary that’s designed – and very effective as a matter of fact – to separate honest and decent unsuspecting consumers from their hard-earned money.

“Today, I invite local and international media to mark their calendars for this important trial. I encourage correspondents and investigative journalists to come to Lee County Justice Center to witness the overwhelming evidence and systematic scam that has ensnared so many of our fellow sisters and brothers.

"As a part-time resident in the state of Florida, I know that I’m not legally bound to report a crime. However, in the state of Ohio, where I also am a resident, a citizen is legally bound to report a felony crime (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2921.22). For the record, I take that duty very seriously regardless if it is mandated by law,” Howe concluded.

Critically Important Book Released on Opioid Crisis by Simon A. Zysman, Ph.D.

 Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment,

Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment,

 Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment,

Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment,

Details treating addiction with high rate of success using breakthrough approach; includes contributions from several other specializing professionals.

The idea of treating addiction with only behavioral intervention is outdated and ineffective…you're not doing justice to the patient by giving them the least workable option,”

— Simon A. Zysman, Ph.D.

COMMACK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — NEW YORK, NY – Dr. Simon Zysman is one of the nation's most prominent and well known clinical psychologists in the treatment of the addiction to heroin and opioids (the most commonly prescribed pain medication).

In Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment, announced today, Dr. Simon A. Zysman shares his vast experience in recovery treatment as well as a deep look into his incredibly effective treatment program setting former addicts upon a positive road to recovery and a productive future. Opioid dependency is currently considered a lethal epidemic that has run rampant throughout the United States. The spread of opioid addiction is shockingly more by medical doctors inadvertently over-prescribing highly-addictive painkiller medication to their patients as opposed to illegal drug dealers. Dr. Zysman's success in treating this vicious addiction goes against the grain when it comes to the techniques utilized by many recovery specialists.

Dr. Zysman's reputation is such that he was invited to address the New York State Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opiate Addiction on his groundbreaking treatment methodology. It was there Dr. Zysman was asked to write a book about the approach. Thus, a two-year effort began that has culminated in the publication of Successful Heroin and Opioid Addiction Treatment, an amazing look at the vitally important work of Dr. Zysman.

This book released also includes contributions from several specializing medical professionals such as Steven J. Blander, M.D. Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease, Melinda T. Del Castillo M.D. Psychiatrist and Addition Medicine, Regina Neuman, M.D. Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine, Steven M. Silverman, M.D. Board Certified in Addiction Medicine, Isabel M. Tolentino-Marasol, M.D. Board Certified Psychiatrist and Addiction Medicine, Farhaana Zainul, J.D., CASAC Health Law and Quality Assurance, Jacqueline P. Zysman-Weisfeld, Pharm. D.

ASA Insurance Announces the Future of Auto Insurance and Driverless Vehicles

In the past, it was expected that there would be no need for car insurance in Salt Lake City or elsewhere once autonomous vehicles were introduced to the road.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the past, it was expected that there would be no need for car insurance in Salt Lake City or elsewhere once autonomous vehicles were introduced to the road. However, there have been several reports of accidents involving driverless vehicles in the testing phase. This issue indicates a continued need for coverage through car insurance but in a different way. ASA Insurance sees growth potential for insurers that are willing to adapt and change.

The need for car insurance will continue, predicts ASA Insurance. Not everyone will be able to convert to a driverless car at the same time. Many will wait to see how the technology works in the real world while others will need to wait for the price to come down. Those who do purchase the driverless cars once they are approved for the road will need coverage for accidents that may not be their fault but the fault of the driverless technology. It may not be the car owner who needs to purchase a policy but the manufacturers or dealers who build and sell the vehicles. This opens up a new opportunity for insurers who can create new insurance products quickly.

"Autonomous cars will be more expensive to insure," predicts Creed Anderson of ASA Insurance, an independent agency that provides auto insurance in Salt Lake City. "Damage to sensors will increase the expenses of repairing the vehicle." This situation can already be seen where there are backup cameras and parking systems in place. The costs to repair these vehicles is significantly more than it is for older cars that don’t have this technology.

The changes to insurance policies for autonomous vehicles may be beneficial to both the insurance provider and the insured. Instead of the driver paying for more insurance, some experts predict it will fall to the manufacturer. This means premiums may go down or at least stay the same for the driver while the insurance provider can charge more to the manufacturer for coverage of defects. As more technology is added to vehicles today, it is easy to see where autonomous cars will become a normal part of traffic in the future. Predictions continue that these vehicles may be on the road in just a few years. However, regulations must still be decided for these vehicles and the technology is not quite there for full autonomy. On the other hand, more new technology is continually being developed and added to the cars already on the road to partner with the driver for improved safety.

The process may be taking longer than predicted 10 years ago, but it is still moving forward for the introduction of driverless cars. The question is more of when rather than if they will make it to the general public. One thing is certain: accidents can still happen no matter who or what is in control of the wheel and the need for insurance will not go away with the change.
