Local IT Company Gives Business Leaders The Number One Reason Why They Might Fall Victim To A Cyber Attack

Cybersecurity Lessons

Mindcote IT services

Local Technology professional at Mindcore shares how your company’s data is far too important to not take seriously.

Like most companies, we help with cybersecurity, this company wasn’t getting the best guidance. They thought they were covered, but they were not protected, and their strategy was not effective.”

— Matt Rosenthal, CEO of Mindcore IT Services

FAIRFIELD, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Local technology expert and CEO of Mindcore, Matt Rosenthal, helps companies across the country strengthen their cybersecurity so that they can decrease their risk of cyber attacks.

Recently, he and his team at Mindcore had to help a company that was badly breached by a cyber attack.

“Like most companies, we help with cybersecurity, this company wasn’t getting the best guidance,” says Rosenthal, “they thought they were covered, but when we took over, we had to put everything in place. We needed to implement proper spam filtering, antivirus, proper monitoring solutions, monthly virtual CIO meetings, and more. This company was not protected, and its cybersecurity strategy was not effective.”

The Impact of Cyberattacks is Real

Nearly two-thirds of organizations have reported experiencing cyber attacks in the last two years. About half of these included attacks from hacking, while approximately a third came from phishing and malware strategies, respectively. This can result in a loss of private data, costly recovery expenses and weakened client trust. What’s worse, the average breach lifecycle is nearly a year.

To combat these losses, Rosenthal shares the number one reason why companies get impacted by cyber attacks.

The number one cause for a cyber breach is due to leaders who believe it won’t happen to them.

Business leaders who aren’t willing to invest in securing their data should consider that they are putting their whole company at risk. We also see a disappointing pattern of businesses implementing solutions that fall far short of delivering the prevention that is actually needed, oftentimes in an effort to keep costs down.

Your company and clients’ data are far too important to let the choice of prevention be driven by the lowest cost option; it’s important to make minimizing risk of top concern.

Rosenthal’s main piece of advice is, “Don’t take shortcuts”.

At the end of the day, companies always spend more on the actual loss than investing in keeping their data (and their clients’ data) secure.

Thousands of companies are already beginning to take the necessary steps to protect their business, and as a result, they are more competitive, efficient and productive. It makes a compelling argument for cybersecurity not only being at the core of a company’s IT strategy but the core of their business strategy.

Onera and Verhaert receives Eurostar R&D grant to modernize sleep diagnostic and monitoring technology

Onera and Verhaert receives Eurostar R&D grant to modernize sleep diagnostic and monitoring technology

Onera and Verhaert receives Eurostar R&D grant to modernize sleep diagnostic and monitoring technology

EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Onera, a leader in sleep diagnostic and monitoring solutions with R&D offices in the Netherlands, and its partner, Verhaert Masters in Innovation, were awarded a Eurostar grant of €935K to develop a patch-based sleep diagnostic and monitoring system that is attached to the chest. It is designed to improve the way a variety of sleep disorders are diagnosed and monitored. Called DISPATCH, the set of devices will be a combination of Onera’s wireless analytical patch that attaches to the chest like a band aid, and an upcoming bedside base station designed by Verhaert. The partnership’s mutual goal is to remove the complexity and discomfort associated with in-hospital sleep studies by offering the simplicity and convenience of an in-home sleep study test with lab-grade results. The newly awarded Eurostar grant will become part of the partnership’s total budget currently set to €2.5M.

With one in every five people struggling with sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, or several other ailments, the need for proper diagnosis, treatment and monitoring is critical. Today’s polysomnography (PSG) practices and technologies are outdated, and helping those who suffer from daily exhaustion and a lack of focus has become a critical issue. It is especially important with poor sleeping has beenlinked to chronic, life-threatening diseases and conditions, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and depression.

Coupled with the use of AI, Onera’s patch-based chest-attached sleep diagnostic solution is built around comfort, convenience and clinical accuracy. This makes it easier for patients to use it themselves in the comfort of their own homes, while also being beneficial for sleep clinics, their administrations and the sleep study community in general by offering lab-grade results.

As the partnership between Onera and Verhaert moves forward, the teams also plan on developing a connectivity hub designed to help simplify the setup and expansion of sleep labs. Onera intends to launch pilot programs across different countries and work with leaders in sleep medicine, including pulmonologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, ENT’s and pediatricians. All of this is to bring the field of sleep medicine into the future, with a simple yet powerful technology that’s poised to improve the lives of millions around the world.

Onera’s mission is to one day make lab-grade monitoring accessible to all anywhere, anytime, regardless of socioeconomics or geographic location. We do this by focusing on breakthrough diagnostic and monitoring solutions that are quick, convenient and clinically accurate.

Dr. Cameron Gilbert of Indiana

Neuropsychiatric hospital to help patients with complex medical and neurological conditions

SOUTH BEND, IN, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals (NPH) specializes in providing care for patients with complex medical, behavioral and neuropsychiatric issues. The hospital is known for its specialty in treating patients with dementia who also suffer from other severe behavioral disturbances such as violence to self or others and psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations.

“Behavioral disturbances in dementia often occurs as the form of significant agitation,” said NeuroPsychiatric Hospital’s Founder and Chairman, Dr. Cameron Gilbert of Indiana. “Delusions and hallucinations are also psychiatric issues in dementia.”

NeuroPsychiatric Hospital patients are people who have not been able to be treated correctly at a traditional medical hospital due to severe psychiatric impairments that is coupled with a medical issue. Similarly, the patients typically cannot be treated at a psychiatric or behavioral hospital due to the individual’s complex acute medical and/or neurological disorders.

“Though there are a number of medications that can improve symptoms, there are also nonpharmacological interventions that can be helpful in reducing behavioral disturbances in dementia patients,” “The combination of the specialty medications and behavioral treatments usually work the best” said Dr. Cameron Gilbert of Indiana.”

“It’s also important to humanize facilities,” said Dr. Cameron Gilbert of Indiana. “It’s important to give a softer feel for the environment while making sure the hospital is safe to handle the psychiatric, medical and neurological needs of the patients.”

“NeuroPsychiatric Hospital is proud to serve communities across the US,” said Dr. Cameron Gilbert of Indiana. “We take pride in our dedicated staff and expert clinical care.”

Brain Injury Awareness Month: New York Brain Injury Lawyers Invite Applications For Annual TBI Scholarship

We are excited to be able to assist another student in 2020.”

— Shana De Caro

PLEASANTVILLE, NEW YORK, USA, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Marking the beginning of March’s Brain Injury Awareness month, New York brain injury lawyers De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, have opened applications for their 2020 Traumatic Brain Injury Scholarship award.

Now in its fourth year, the scholarship awards $1,000 to a student who is a survivor of traumatic brain injury and is pursuing a higher education.

Previous winners of the award include art student Luis Fierro Rios, Courtney Bruun-Anderson, a graduate student pursuing a Master’s degree in Social Work at the New York University Silver School of Social Work, and Tiffany Oliverio, who was pursuing a degree in Pre-Occupational and Occupational Therapy at Baker College in Flint, Michigan.

Shana De Caro, a partner in the firm and Vice Chair of the Brain Injury Association of America, explains why the firm introduced the scholarship, “We first introduced our scholarship program in March 2017 to coincide with Brain Injury Awareness month. We were deeply moved by the number of outstanding applications we received, and the courage of the amazing individuals who chose to say, ‘No. I will not let my brain injury stop me from pursuing my dreams’. After awarding the first scholarship to Courtney Bruun-Anderson in August 2017, we decided that our scholarship should be an annual fund, and we are excited to be able to assist another student in 2020.”

Last year’s winner, Luis Fierro Rios, was in his first semester of the M.F.A- Master of Fine Art program at California State University of Fullerton when he was struck by a van during a class outing, and sustained a traumatic brain injury. Presenting the award to Rios in October 2019, Michael Kaplen, a partner in the firm, who chairs the New York State Traumatic Brain Injury Services Coordinating Council and is a former President of the Brain Injury Association of New York, commented:

“We were impressed by Mr. Fierro Rios’ drive to resume his education, but also his bravery in continuing to pursue a career in teaching. Social interactions can be difficult after brain injury, so it would have been easy for Mr Fierro Rios to choose a less interactive career. But Mr Fierro Rios has refused to let his injury control his future, and we hope that our scholarship will help him achieve his goals.”

The 2020 Traumatic Brain Injury Scholarship is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are currently enrolled in, or accepted to enroll at an accredited college or university within the United States, and have sustained a traumatic brain injury from an accident or traumatic event.

To apply, eligible students should fill in the application form on De Caro & Kaplen's website, and submit an essay describing the circumstances of their injury, and how they have worked to overcome it while pursuing an education.

Brain Injury Awareness Month is an annual public awareness campaign led by the Brain Injury Association of America. The campaign, which runs throughout March, aims to de-stigmatize brain injury through outreach within the brain injury community, empower those who have survived brain injury and their caregivers, and promote the many types of support that are available to people living with brain injury.

Applications for De Caro & Kaplen’s, 2020 Traumatic Brain Injury Scholarship are now open at https://brainlaw.com/traumatic-brain-injury-scholarship-fund/, with a deadline for entry of August 1st. The winner of this year’s award will be announced in September 2020.

Local Health Departments Urge Adoption of Funding to Strengthen Public Health Capacity to Respond to Coronavirus Spread

Lori Tremmel Freeman, CEO

Millions in uncovered costs already incurred as health departments prepare for and respond to potential and confirmed cases

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), on behalf of the nation’s 3,000 local health departments, sent the following letter to Congress urging it to quickly pass a robust emergency supplemental funding that includes specific resources to support the work of public health departments to activate for and respond to the coronavirus. A full copy of the letter, include an extensive list of activities and supplies that need funding) can be found here.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) urges Congress to quickly adopt efforts to support and strengthen local, state, federal, territorial, tribal, and global public health capacity and coordination to adequately respond to this infectious disease outbreak.

A wide range of potential funding amounts have been suggested in recent days by both the Administration and Members of Congress. While it is difficult to accurately predict the future cost of response efforts due to many unknowns about the future scale and spread of the outbreak in the United States, local health departments are already activated and incurring costs related to their work to address potential and future cases in their communities. Therefore, we strongly recommend a robust emergency supplemental package that specifically delineates strong funding to support the work that local, state, tribal and territorial health departments have and continue to do as part of this response. Funds are needed to support a wide range of activities, including, but not limited to:

• Isolation/quarantine related activities, including securing and standing up facilities, transportation and lodging and wrap around services like behavioral health services/support, counseling, or even necessities like food, toiletries, etc.

• Testing and monitoring patients that are currently under investigation (PUIs), rapidly investigating cases, and obtaining information on their close contacts.

• Outreach to the general public, including media buys for public communication, collaboration with community organizations, printing, phone banks, updating web information, and translating materials into appropriate languages.

• Engagement with hospital, healthcare system, and health plan leaders to monitor healthcare staffing and supplies; implement plans to reduce demands on the healthcare system.
• Acquisition of personal protective equipment (PPE), and other equipment like thermometers.
• Laboratory testing equipment, supplies, and support personnel.
• Data analytics and epidemiological surveillance system capacity.
• Implementing seamless, interoperable data sharing across the public health infrastructure.

In addition, we request that emergency supplemental appropriations provide funding to reimburse costs that were redirected from other programs, consistent with the structure of past emergency supplemental appropriations. Lastly, funding should not be offset by cutting other public health or human service programs, and any existing programs or grants from which funds are diverted or transferred in the near-term response should be replenished by the emergency supplemental appropriation.

While supplemental funding will support critical activities to rapidly respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, it does not preclude the need for Congress to provide sustained, continued, and increased investments through the annual appropriations process for HHS to expand capacity to address other existing and future public health threats. Strong, sustainable funding is critical to increase the capacity of health departments who have lost nearly a quarter of their workforce since 2008.

NACCHO and local health departments look forward to working with Congress to address this global outbreak that has the potential to spread throughout our communities, disrupting families, workplaces, and the U.S. economy. Without medical countermeasures, our most effective prevention efforts to minimize widespread illness and loss of life include community mitigation activities that require intensive work by trained public health professionals. Any delay in these efforts can result in a huge human and economic cost.

Oxycodone NADAC Price Up Over 291% In Latest Survey

AnalySource Logo

Oxycodone HCL 5 mg Capsule

Over 2,800 Price Changes For the Most Recent Monthly Survey

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The latest monthly National Average Drug Acquisition Cost (NADAC) survey results for generic drugs have been published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The NADAC pricing benchmark provides state Medicaid agencies with covered outpatient drug prices. These prices are determined by conducting a random voluntary survey from independent and retail chain pharmacies throughout the nation focusing on acquisition costs of outpatient drugs. These prices do not include rebates, discounts or price concessions*. CMS has contracted with Myers & Stauffer, LC, to perform this survey.

With over 2,800 price changes for the most recent monthly survey, it brings in to question as to whether these price fluctuations make predicting drug prices even possible. For example, the opioid pain medication Oxycodone HCL 5 mg capsule sticks out with a staggering 291.6% increase from the previous month with a new NADAC price of $0.9446 each.

Looking closer at the historical NADAC pricing of the oxycodone HCL 5 mg capsule, although the price increase may seem alarming at first, the NADAC price in March of 2019 was $0.74115 having an annual change of only 27.5% through February 2020 (see chart). During the past 36 months, the price was as high as $1.2117, October and November 2018, and as low as $0.24124 from October 2019 through January 2020. The 36-month average NADAC price is $0.81723.

The second-highest monthly price increase is Nadolol 80 MG Tablet, used to treat hypertension and angina, which had a 77.5% price change. Rounding out the top 5 increases are Carisoprodol 250 MG Tablet used to treat short-term muscle pain and discomfort coming in third at 73.2%, Dexmethylphenidate ER 10 MG capsule used in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) climbed 67.1%, and Ranitidine 150 MG Tablet, used for the treatment of stomach ulcers and maintenance therapy after the ulcers have healed, coming in fifth at 63.2%.

Overall, of the over 2,800 price changes for the latest monthly survey results, 312 drugs had price increases of 10% or more and 299 had price decreases more than -10%. The average price increase for all drugs taking a NADAC generic price hike is 7.2%. Given the fluctuations that happen monthly with NADAC pricing for generic drugs, it shows how difficult it is to predict drug prices.

Renowned Athlete Steve Cannon Launches $1M Cancer Research Fundraising Campaign Timed with Iditarod Trail Invitational

I embarked on this journey to raise $1M dollars because I have the health and opportunity to make a difference.”

— Steve Cannon

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, UNITED STATES, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The film maker, author and activist is participating in the world's longest winter ultra-marathon in support of his ongoing cancer research funding commitment

Steve Cannon has launched an ambitious cancer research fundraising campaign and social media movement timed with his participation in the 2020 Iditarod Trail Invitational (ITI), which began on March 1st. Steve's #whatsYOURiditarod call to action aims to inspire people to live life to its fullest, while also raising funds for the top-rated V Foundation for Cancer Research.

The ITI is widely acknowledged as the world's most physically punishing race. Only the most intrepid and resilient athletes are selected to participate in the grueling one-thousand mile challenge from Anchorage to Nome, which requires participants to mount "Fat Tire" bikes and carry all essential gear necessary for survival on the trail. Since 2003, only 54 racers have successfully completed the race to emerge from "The Big Empty" and reach Nome's Burled Arch finish line.
Expand Your Possible is Steve's personal philosophy and drives all aspects of his life. "Each finish line becomes the next opportunity to reach even further. #whatsYOURiditarod is a natural extension of this mindset. My goal is to inspire people from all walks of life to find their own Iditarod. Living life to our fullest potential is how we honor the lessons people in the cancer fight have taught us."

Steve has written the names of more than fifty people on "Black Betty", his iconic bike. Their shared connection is the battle with cancer, and although many of them have lost their lives to the disease, Steve wants their legacy to live on as a form of shared remembrance.

Resembling a modern-day arctic monk, Steve's signature frozen beard shields him during the long days and pitch-black nights navigating the bone-chilling Alaskan tundra, which can reach -50F degrees. "I embarked on this journey to raise $1M dollars because I have the health and opportunity to make a difference. Cancer fighters teach us the value of living every day to its fullest and tackling the ITI gives me the chance to repay that gift by raising money for a cure."

Loan Doctor keeps 6% APY rate for existing clients, despite a rapidly declining interest rate environment

5.25% HCF High Yield CD from Loan Doctor remains competitive

Decreasing rates affect banks and other financial firms

The global market uncertainty, mainly due to fears of economic slowdown from coronovirus, is pushing rates down across the board, from Treasuries to the Fed

For our current clients, we do expect that we will be able to maintain the current rate through 2020, however we will bring our new client rates to be in line with the current interest rate trend”

— Dr. Edgar Radjabli, DDS, CTA

NEW YORK, NY, USA, March 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Interest rates across the US have been dropping quickly, led by the 10 year US Treasury Bond reaching a historical low of just above 1.1% on Friday, February 28th. Similarly, the recent stock market volatility is drastically increasing the chances of a Fed rate cut this year to all but certain, according to interest rate futures contracts traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Market participants are now expecting a 50bps rate cut as early as the March Fed meeting, and an additional 50bps cut being very likely as early as June.

Despite this clear direction in rates, Loan Doctor Financial has stated that it is keeping its rate for existing clients at 6% APY for its flagship consumer savings product, the HCF High Yield CD. The investment product has a 1 month, renewable term, which means the rate can change with 1 month notice, but the company has kept the current rate throughout all of 2019.

On the other hand, the company announced today that it is changing the rate for new customers, which will include existing customers who have applied for an account but who have not yet made a deposit. The new rate, effective April 1st, will be 5.25%, reflective of current interest rate market direction, while remaining very competitive to traditional banks.

The company’s CEO, Dr. Edgar Radjabli stated that “for our current clients, we do expect that we will be able to maintain the current rate through 2020, however we will be bringing our new client rates to be in line with the current interest rate environment”
