The cyber threat world is changing fast and hackers have their sights squarely set on the financial industry, so here are five security practices your firm had better get right. Engage a real-time intrusion detection and mitigation system for both your on-premise and cloud environments. From our perspective, the cloud is now a tried and tested infrastructure environment that is acceptable to the institutional investor community.
Where managers need to spend their time is deciding on the best cloud provider to work with, as opposed to thinking about whether or not they should use a cloud provider in the first place.
There are clear indicators to look for and expect from a cloud services provider with whom you wish to entrust your firm's technology lifeblood.
When entering into a new partnership, you want to feel confident that the other side understands you and appreciates your unique qualities. One of the great benefits to leveraging an outsourced cloud provider is that it checks off an important box on your task list. We're all concerned about the potential for a security breach to wreak havoc in a business setting, and preventing such an occurrence is not an easy feat. The typical auto-reply includes a brief explanation of why the recipient is out of the office, an approximate date of return and who the sender can alternatively contact. Auto-replies that disclose travel details pose a physical threat as they provide criminals or intruders with the recipient’s whereabouts.
Perhaps this person is the safeguard to financial records, or a security officer at the company’s front entrance.
Out-of-office notifications enable attackers to expand their reconnaissance of an organization.
Cybercriminals can target the alternate contact provided in the automatic response for a spear-phishing campaign, which typically involves an email, IM or text message requesting you to verify information by clicking on a link or completing a form. Following is an example of the type of phishing or imposter emails that enter employees’ inboxes. Paul defined cybersecurity and scalability as two primary technology considerations for new managers. Paul continued to place emphasis on customized IT, stating that when it comes to outsourcing, it is imperative that a firm carries out proper due diligence in choosing a provider to meet the firm’s unique needs. In addressing the SEC’s increasing cyber expectations, Paul noted the importance of having a Written Information Security Plan (WISP) in place.
In addition to WISP development and implementing additional policies (Access Control, Personal Information Security, Incident Response, etc.), and, of course, employing layers of security across infrastructure, employee awareness and training is the last critical piece of the puzzle.
Paul concluded by describing the five most common mistakes new launches make during the start-up phase, and how to avoid them. You haven’t fully considered the multiple roles technology plays in your current work environment.
At the heart of authentication is controlling access to ensure individuals only access the information they need. As part of Information Security Planning, firms should also identify applications, services or websites that require at least one level of authentication (e.g. Knowledge based, which centers on something you know such as a password or answer to a security question. Possession based, which is linked to something you have such as a cryptocard, mobile device or ATM card. Speaking of a second authenticator, multi-factor authentication is established by requiring two of the above factors.
Putting a specific two-factor authentication product in the spotlight, Eze Castle Integration has added Duo, a two-factor authentication tool, to our Eze Managed Suite offering to provide an added layer of security and protection. With Duo, users leverage their smartphones for authentication, eliminating the need to carry extra devices, like tokens, fobs and key cards. But there is another trap you should be wary of, and that’s the one hackers are setting for you right now. A cyber attacker will send you a message that appears to be from a reliable source, prompting you to open it. In traditional phishing, cyber criminals send out messages to millions of users trying to infect as many users as possible. Many firms create a 10-20-page written information security plan that formalizes the definitions and policies that govern the creation, access, and deletion of confidential information and computing services. Regulatory Risks – Following the right security practices will enable you to achieve clean audits from industry and government regulators. Personal Email – Even if your employee is following all of your processes and practices with work-related email, you could still be vulnerable if her private, personal email is breached or corrupted.
By developing an internal culture of security, the organization does far more than deploy and configure bits and bytes.
The cybersecurity landscape is constantly changing and today the cyber threat actors range from organized crime to state sponsors. When it comes to advanced persistent threats, the cyber criminals often use targeted social engineering tactics including spear phishing. Real-time intrusion detection and prevention systems that include 24x7 monitoring by security experts are a key defense in finding and stopping network intruders. Show investors that you have a 3+ year budget for working capital without any performance fees.
Make sure to properly allocate expense and investment opportunities if you decide to launch a single investor fund or separately managed accounts. When it comes to seed arrangements, pick the right partner and put parameters around potential issues that could arise. Become familiar with the changing expectations on the cybersecurity front, from both investors and regulators. The Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice applies to all membership categories--futures commission merchants, swap dealers, major swap participants, introducing brokers, forex dealer members, commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisors.
But whatever approach is taken, the Cybersecurity Interpretive Notice requires Members to adopt and enforce an information systems security program (ISSP) appropriate to its circumstances. Description of ongoing education and training related to information systems security for employees. NFA recognizes that some Members may face a significant challenge implementing ISSPs by the March 1, 2016 effective date, and any programs that are adopted will be refined over time.
Eze Castle Integration’s Cybersecurity Practice Team is available to create Written Information System Security Programs for firms. Operating capital may be limited in the first few years after your launch, so careful budgeting and long range planning will serve your firm well. Governmental oversight of the financial industry has evolved dramatically in the last decade. Apart from registration, you should also determine if there are any legislative implications for your new firm. Since 2014, cybersecurity preparedness is also a critical area of focus for regulatory bodies.
Cloud services offer more flexibility than traditional infrastructure models and, beyond cost-savings, can reap rewards for new launches. Of course, one of the greatest benefits to using an outsourced cloud service is professional management and monitoring.
Beyond infrastructure safeguards, it is critical that firms implement policies and procedures to protect firm and client assets. While the list of considerations is surely long for new hedge fund managers, we've whittled it down to 10 Keys to Launching a Hedge Fund Successfully - a guide for new startups to use when setting off on their new journey. We at Eze Castle Integration have identified the top four reasons why backups are critical to not only a firm’s growth, but also their survival.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has instituted regulations on the storage of financial records and electronic communication, and financial industry regulatory agencies such as FINRA now provide standards and guidance information on potential threats. The reasoning behind these recommendations is the volume of things that can go wrong with your data storage solution. Regulatory and compliance organizations recognize the necessity of data security and advocate for firms to have a comprehensive backup solution in place.
As reported by Gartner in the 2015 Gartner MQ Report for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances, by 2017, the number of enterprises using the cloud as a backup destination will double, growing from twelve percent (12%) today.
Consider the impact to your business if you lost the data held in your CRM, financial, or reporting systems.
Backups should be an integrated part of not only the IT department, but of the overall business strategy.
Businesses invest large amounts of time, money and resources into their operations; however, most are lacking a plan to protect this hard work.
Because the security of data is imperative, it’s critical that firms choose the right provider to maintain tight control and visibility over business critical information.
In some cases, however, insurance coverage has not satisfied the demands of firms and instead left them feeling scammed a second time.
One example of this comes from Texas where a manufacturing firm is suing their cyber insurance provider for refusing to cover a loss that came at the hands of a phishing scheme. Situations like these are reminders for Chief Financial Officers and Risk Officers to carefully comb their cyber insurance policies to gain a comprehensive understanding of what exactly is covered – and what is not.
Given the risk landscape, it is no wonder companies of all sizes continue to be subject to increasing data breach liability, both in the form of single plaintiff or class action lawsuits and regulatory investigations and proceedings. Plaintiffs in data breach class actions typically allege that businesses failed to adequately safeguard consumer information and gave insufficient and untimely notice of the breach.
Companies affected by a Cyber breach may also face liability to third parties, which may result in defense costs, settlements, judgments and, sometimes punitive damages. It seems that every hour emerging innovations and dynamic social platforms open the threshold of new opportunities to share and attain information.
When it comes to social media engines, when did people become the mindless machines pumping out sensitive information? Think of other websites you frequently utilize that require passwords and personal details. We select these Q&As to safeguard our personal accounts, but overlook other platforms we might have shared this information on previously. SMB partners Steve Spencer and I held a free webinar last night: The Two Best Trades Working in this Market.

The Australasian College of Toxicology and Risk Assessment (ASTA) is holding its 9th Annual Meeting at Ayers House, Adelaide, South Australia from September 21–23, 2016. Two hundred scientists attended the Scientific Liaison Coalition (SLC) Webinar held on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. The live webinars are open only to members of the partnering societies of the SLC, which are listed on the SLC website. With the SOT Awards application deadline of October 9, now is the time to apply for an International ToxScholar Outreach Grant and become an Iinternational ambassador for toxicology. Over the past few years, the Society of Toxicology has helped support many outstanding members for educational outreach travel outside of North America through the International ToxScholar Outreach Grant. I am pleased to report that, today, I joined NIEHS Director and SOT Past President Linda Birnbaum to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between SOT and NIEHS. Because of these close connections, it seemed only natural for SOT and NIEHS to formalize our robust, working relationship. Essentially, SOT and NIEHS will be proceeding as we always have: working together to improve environmental health.
As a feedback comment, one of the students stipulated that, although there are several webinars and online sources available about scientific writing, career development in toxicology, and other topics, hearing from one of the alumnus was remarkably provocative. After completion of all scheduled activities, students and faculty interacted with me asking simple yet important questions regarding career opportunities in the United States and research prospects. I sincerely appreciate SOT's support of the outreach programs for developing countries. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced a call for images of NIH funded research to be posted to the NIH Image Gallery on Flicker and in the Funded Research album. The Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is initiating a Horizon Scanning effort to advance the science and application of the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) framework. Workshop results will be publically disseminated in the form of publications and international presentations at professional meetings. You also will find four Editor's Highlights, which were prepared by ToxSci Associate Editors Jeffrey M. The mission of ToxSci, the official journal of the Society of Toxicology, is to publish the most influential research in the field of toxicology. Thirty-six outstanding undergraduates and five advisors were selected to attend this year’s program.
The success of this program is due in large part to over fifty dynamic volunteers who so generously gave their time to teach and inspire the next generation of young scientists during the SOT Annual Meeting. These dedicated mentors will continue to keep in contact with their mentor group students throughout their undergraduate studies and be a resource to them as they consider career paths and advanced degrees. CDI and these students were very fortunate to have leading toxicologists take this extensive amount of time to share their knowledge and professional development experiences with them.

The Ontario Human Rights Commission's (OHRC) new Policy on removing the "Canadian experience" barrier was launched recently by Chief Commissioner Barbara Hall in partnership with KPMG. While companies like Google, BMW, Audi and Volkswagen pour millions into developing self-driving car technology with expensive components, 19-year-old Romanian high school student Ionut Budisteanu has designed an autonomous vehicle system that would cost just US$4,000. Colleagues, Yesterday we closed yet another Mentoring Round during the Intercultural event organized by JVS.
My favorite part of the mentoring program was when we shared work experience and life experience; my mentor made and makes me feel as a part of a big family. A proud professional engineer, a military engineer with distinguished service in Afghanistan, and a legislator, I cherish my profession and obligations to society.
I am running for the office of President-elect because I deeply believe that engineers have a fundamental role in strengthening Canada's economy through their expertise and high standards in protecting the public. The foundation for the value offered to society by professional engineers lies primarily in our members' high standard of qualification and adherence to our Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct as stated in the Professional Engineers Act and Regulations. Engineering does not exist in isolation; it needs to work in close conjunction with policy and politics on the one hand and with business on the other.
Engineering is also a tremendous training of the mind which lends itself very well to running businesses, large and small.
Engineers also help to inform public opinion by illuminating what can be done and bringing to life the sense of what is possible, a hugely important motivator for all of us. Engineering work is an important contributor to Canada's social, economic, cultural and environmental well being and a decisive factor in maintaining our country in the lead of the developed nations of the world. PEO faces a challenge today in keeping up with the rapid evolution of the new engineering fields in effectively demonstrating its value to society and its relevance to its membership. Engineers need to build on the strength of a growing and continuously diversified profession, while correcting weaknesses that may threaten its credibility with the public and legislators. More than ever before, our profession needs wise leadership with active member involvement to maintain its relevance to society in the fundamental decision-making processes.
We must actively develop our profession and create the maximum benefit for both society and engineers! I plan to work to implement the roles and responsibilities of the Council, chapters, committees and task forces in policy development. It has been a long tradition: In December and January, publications-no matter what subjects they cover-like to engage in the game of New Year predictions.


November 28, 2012 Dear Friend, Community Leader and Stakeholder, I am writing to you as the Liberal Critic for Multiculturalism and person responsible for Community and Stakeholders' Outreach. You and other like-minded business people are invited to attend a complimentary Dale Carnegie® meeting.
In this meeting you will learn how Dale Carnegie® will support you in achieving sustainable results in Five Key areas, both personally and professionally. Individuals and employees at all levels in a corporation who seek to maximize their performance, become stronger leaders and add more value to their organizations. WoS is closing 2012 with a networking event were are invited members of all others non-profit organizations from Romanian community.
These foundational layers of security include anti-virus protection, network firewalls, web filtering and strong password policies. Be sure to track and observe all network actions to be aware of breaches, attacks or unauthorized access of sensitive information.
It is essential that companies authenticate firewall configurations and anti-virus patching, network device security and evidence of criminal activity. A firm must train employees on handling confidential data and define their responsibilities around cybersecurity.
They have become very thorough in their operational due diligence process, understanding exactly what cloud providers provide from an operational, management and security perspective.
Employee awareness and training are arguably the most important factors in preventing a workplace security incident, but let's not overlook the technology must-haves.
To let your clients, partners, colleagues, and the like know that you won’t be able to respond to their emails, you create an out-of-office message. You may also list your chain of command and if you manage multiple departments, perhaps include the names and contact information for each division. Regardless of whether location is provided, one can link travel dates to a popular financial industry trade show.
Criminals can deduct from this message which key personal are not present onsite, exposing a gap in the hedge fund’s security posture. We hear and read stories too often about employees being victims of social engineering schemes. Enacting and employing policies to mitigate security risk is critical, but documenting those policies is equally as important -- not only to meet the demands of the SEC, but to demonstrate to clients and investors that your firm takes cybersecurity preparedness seriously. Policies can be documented, Paul explained, but if employees are not trained to identify and mitigate cyber risks, the policies will be ineffective in protecting a firm.
In reality, a successful approach means negotiating, purchasing and deploying multiple systems from multiple service providers. Before you commit to any tech solutions, envision how your fund will look in the long term.
Consider the work you’re doing as an employee, and consider which systems supported that work.
Acknowledge that you will require IT systems to build servers, manage networks, and handle day-to-day needs. With stories of password compromises becoming more common it is important to understand the types of authentication factors available and good computing practices. This is the most commonly used authentication factor and potentially the weakest if strong password and change requirements are not enforced.
When using a mobile device, for example, a one-time password (OTP) can be generated to provide access for only one login session or transaction. Apple notably introduced inherence factor authentication with its iPhone TouchID biometric fingerprint reader. This means that in addition to providing a password for access, a user would also need to provide a separate PIN number, for example. Duo combines modern two-factor authentication with advanced endpoint security solutions to protect users from account takeovers and data breaches.
Phishing is a psychological attack used by cyber criminals in order to trick you into giving up personal information or taking action.
If the email appears to be from a legitimate organization but the address is a personal account (Gmail, MSN, Hotmail, Yahoo) it is probably an attack. If your friend or colleague sends you a strange message, their account may have been attacked. That can be everything from a definition of personally identifiable information (PII), a description of user access privileges and roles, or policies regarding USB thumb-drives. It commits to defining and following thoughtful, far-ranging policies to eliminate the needless internal vulnerabilities that often go unrecognized. APT intrusions are often focused on high-value information and sectors such as the financial industry.
In a spear phishing incident, criminals target specific companies or individuals and conduct background research to compile employee names, titles and contact information.
Not only must emerging managers evaluate traditional deployment strategies, but consider current factors influencing the financial landscape. There was quite a bit of content discussed during the 1-hour event, so we’ve pulled out some key takeaways. Target those who have a history of being receptive to founder share class and who may offer lower management and performance fees.
Recognize where the private cloud has an edge: high-touch, industry-specific service and support, scalability and application integration, and security and compliance. Value is derived from knowledge of the application, knowledge of business, and having a dedicated support team. The NFA's Interpretive Notice to NFA Compliance Rules 2-9, 2-36 and 2-49 entitled Information Systems Security Programs requires Member firms to adopt and enforce written policies and procedures to secure customer data and access to their electronic systems. Executive-level participation and annual review of the information security program is expected.
NFA expects to devote appropriate resources, such as providing additional guidance, to assist Members as they develop and implement their ISSPs. Don't forget to visit Hedge IT on Thursday as we reveal the last of our key considerations for starting a hedge fund. Hedge funds, private equity firms and registered investment advisers now operate in a world where they are beholden to regulatory bodies with growing expectations and requirements. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, which redefined the registration requirements for hedge funds, also set forth new reporting requirements and standards for safeguards.
With the prevalence of cyber threats and attacks, the SEC’s Office of Compliance and Examinations (OCIE) has incorporated cybersecurity into its examination targets. Firms can add users nearly instantly – a welcome benefit for startups looking to ramp up quickly. You can do this by conducting employee awareness training to keep all users informed and educated about the cyber environment and the threats that may arise. And be sure to come back to Hedge IT later this week when we'll be sharing an excerpt from our brand new whitepaper on the same topic!
Regulatory agencies and investors now expect businesses to have backup solutions and comprehensive record-keeping practices. In addition, international regulators such as the FCA, a financial regulatory body in the United Kingdom, are also demanding firms to have a data backup solution. From hardware failure, software corruption, virus or network security breaches, to natural disasters and human error, the threat to your data is endless.
Businesses that demonstrate that their data is secure and backed up have a competitive edge when security questions inevitably come their way. And by 2017, seventy-five percent (75%) of organizations will have replaced their remote-office tape backup with a disk-based backup solution that incorporates replication, up from forty-five percent (45%) today.
A SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey by Symantec found that downtime costs small businesses an average of approximately $12,500 per day and medium businesses $23,000 per day. Eze Castle partners with KeepItSafe, a leading provider for managed online backup and recovery, to deliver our Eze Vault services.
As hackers become savvier and cyber schemes more elaborate, many firms are relying on cyber liability policies to add an extra layer of protection. Governments are facing an unprecedented level of Cyber attacks and threats with the potential to undermine national security and critical infrastructure.
Negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract are just some of the allegations that a company may face as a result of a systems failure or lax security that compromises the security of customers’ personal information or data.
Companies may also face class actions from banks and credit unions seeking damages for administrative expenses, lost interest, transaction fees and lost customers.
For example, 25 class action lawsuits were settled in the wake of a retailer’s 2007 data breach involving the theft of data related to over 45 million credit and debit cards. Third parties bringing lawsuits against businesses for damages are increasingly seeking to expand the nature of injuries and remedies sought in light of early case law which determined that there was no injury in fact sustained by the Cyber breach and thus no standing to sue. The enactment of ITERA and the growing recognition in the business community that time spent repairing credit may constitute an injury in fact, may create an increased willingness of courts to find consumer standing to bring such actions and thus an increased liability risk to businesses.
Typical data requested from social sites may include your full name, age, sex, birthday, relatives, photos, account access, etc. Conceivably, if you scroll through your status updates and photos on Facebook you could find all of these personal facts.

The ANS Panel evaluates the safety of food additives, nutrient sources, and other substances intentionally added to food, but excluding flavourings and enzymes. The Institute aims to foster individual research projects of promising scientists and motivated research scholars with the overall goal to stimulate innovative research in the minority health and health disparities sciences. The course was supported by an SOT International ToxScholar grant and included an up-to-date review of asbestos toxicity, health effects, and dose-response models to evaluate risks on population and individual levels. Presented in Russian, this was part of the mandatory course in industrial hygiene for senior level medical students. The series presents scientific information that is high-quality, cutting-edge, future-oriented toxicological science to provide a well-grounded foundation to inform the work of US FDA employees and is open to the public.
Human stem cell-derived cardiomyocyte (hiPSC-CMs) are increasingly used in drug discovery, toxicity assessment, and cell-based disease treatment. The epigenome is a dynamic regulatory framework that controls the use of genomic information to govern the response of cells, tissues, organs, and individuals to their environment. The Education Committee invites SOT members, Regional Chapters, Special Interest Groups, and Specialty Sections to submit applications for partial or full travel support up to $1,250. Almost 100 SOT members are employed within the NIEHS, and the institute has been an active participant and sponsor of sessions at the SOT Annual Meeting and other events.
The only difference is that we now have a public document acknowledging this beneficial and profound partnership. Moreover, I engaged the students to participate in an activity through which they learned some dos and don’ts of scientific writing, which was liked by everyone and greatly appreciated by those students getting ready to construct their manuscripts for future publication.
Moreover, we had to change the venue of this meeting from one auditorium to another hall in the middle to accommodate overwhelming attendance which reflected their enthusiasm.
This meeting will offer a forum for sharing basic and applied research in toxicology and is aimed to convene international scientists to present their results related to the exposure to toxic agents, adverse effects, mechanisms of toxicity, preventive alternatives, normativity, and more to strengthen the science-policy interface to foster the progress towards sustainability.
Miller regarding the importance of reproducibility and rigor, "As many of you may be aware, the National Institutes of Health released new guidelines a few months ago regarding rigor and reproducibility, a topic familiar to the readers of Toxicological Sciences.
Gehring Diversity Student Travel Award was presented to Lisbeth Perez-Castro by Jorge Naciff, Chair of the Committee on Diversity Initiatives (CDI), during the SOT Annual Meeting at the CDI Reunion.
Gehring Diversity Student Award recognizes a student who participated in the SOT Undergraduate Program, is from a group underrepresented in toxicology, and is presenting an abstract at the SOT Annual Meeting. Additionally, over fifty undergraduates joined the travel award recipients for the open Sunday activities.
The Committee on Diversity Initiatives (CDI) would like to recognize and give special thanks to these wonderful program volunteers. Many of this year’s participants have reported back on what a wonderful and affirming experience they had during the Undergraduate Program, and how valuable the experience will be as they look ahead to plan career paths and consider pursuing advanced degrees. Talks will describe key factors that impact the interpretation of nonclinical discovery and development studies. This international meeting will bring scientists from around the world to the University of Rochester to discuss emerging knowledge about the AHR and its many ligands. Led by numerous nationally and internationally recognized experts in the field of medical toxicology, this course provides a broad overview of the scope of medical toxicology and a detailed perspective into current clinical and public health toxicological issues. The International Union of Toxicology (IUTOX) organizes the largest and most prestigious International Congress on Toxicology (ICT) every three years, offering the opportunity to learn the latest developments in toxicological science and regulation through general scientific sessions and continuing education courses. This conference will provide a forum for communication and interactions between toxicologists, pathologists, clinicians, pharmacologists, basic scientists, and other professionals working in the field of ocular toxicology.
Career challenges faced by female trainees and professionals will be discussed including negotiating a competitive salary, climbing the career ladder, speaking up without appearing aggressive, and effective networking. However, they provide a great opportunity for constructive reflection.Everyone loves winning awards. Kirsty GreanyWhile it's easy to slip on the rose-tinted glasses when looking at the challenges of business 20 years ago, it's fair to say that the landscape has significantly shifted in the last couple of decades. Vom aduce pe scena romani talentati cu care ne mandrim, care sa va bucure sufletele si sa va ofere o seara minunata.

We will also be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Independence of many countries (including Hungary) of the Soviet bloc. We'd like to take this opportunity to provide some safety tips to share with your customers. In addition, we will offer several interactive, speakers' workshops led by experts in various fields of interest to new Canadians, from careers to immigration law. We aim to provide essential information and tips on job hunting, accreditation, upgrading of education, looking for a home and more. This paper highlights the increasing importance of diaspora networks in the global economy and Canada's underwhelming performance in mobilizing our diverse immigrant talent and concludes with specific recommendations for the public and private sectors.
Applications range from self-cleaning windows to targeted cancer therapy as well as from space elevators to autonomous nano-robot (nanobot) colonies.
His has received funding from several programs and collaborates across the industry, government and academia sectors. Whether you're a seasoned project management practitioner, just starting out or interested in the profession, or a business professional, this unique event is an opportunity to learn, share, build networks, engage with Toronto communities, showcase yourself, socialize with peers and make contacts. In an industry of constant change and global influence, success depends on innovation, information, insight and evolution. Minutes from Pearson International Airport, with 5,000 free parking spaces and free shuttle bus service from CMTS host hotels! In my view it was great success especially because of the wonderful speakers like Juan Orozco and Leanne Li who were generous with their time to come and share some helpful insights on how to succeed in the Canadian job market. Over the past year, three professional immigrant networks, JVS Toronto and TRIEC partnered on a small group mentoring project that proved to be a success. It needs to connect with the worlds of ideas and practical commerce and to face up to real choices for the good of society.
Some also use their practical knowledge to help Governments understand choices and the most effective means to get things done. With your support, I am convinced that we will achieve a real transformation in engineering regulation for the benefit of our society. That's why we were excited when IDC presented us with its Top 10 manufacturing industry predictions for 2013, which we-in turn-present to you. Beyond monitoring, you need an established incident response team and plan that can swing into action if a breach is identified. You'll want to know where vulnerabilities exist before implementing additional security measures. One compromised computer can infect an entire organization, so at least annually, employees should complete security awareness training on a range of topics. And while the thought of hosting IT offsite was once a worry for allocators, today's investors find comfort in knowing hedge fund and alternative investment firms are focusing on their investment priorities and leaving the technology decisions to the experts. This has allowed managers to become much more comfortable at appointing a cloud provider to deliver an infrastructure that will perform well in any type of trading environment. Although this may appear innocuous to the untrained eye, those who are well-versed in information security, or simply read the latest cybersecurity headlines, would immediately cringe at the various red flags. As their knowledge roadmap of your organization expands, so too do their odds of attaining trust from within.
From downloading a malicious virus to falling for a wire transfer scam, these occurrences not only have financial implications to an investment firm but can also impact an employee personally and directly.
Note the sender email address, which includes Eze Castle Integration’s domain, the balance due amount and the type of company (medical) sending the invoice.
One of the most common mistakes new launches make, according to Paul, is assuming that they only require the basic bare minimum in terms of technology. Brand and reputation, long lasting relationships with clients, and industry experience are some of criteria Paul feels are most important when selecting a service provider. The goal of a WISP, Paul continued, is to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information, information assets and sensitive materials for your firm and those of your clients. Firms should require passwords to be at least 12 characters in length, changed at least every 90 days, and not be reused.
Another place this factor is common is for granting access to a data center – firms may want to use biometric screening as a second authenticator.
Oftentimes the email domain will be missing a letter or have letters reversed, so you'll have to pay close attention.
Also, hover your mouse over the link before you proceed to make sure that it is taking you where it claims to. The bank believes hackers executed a hack that allowed $81 million to be taken from the bank’s foreign exchange account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. And the way that starts to happen is through systemic and comprehensive training practices. Prepare an institutional set of documents up front if you are looking to attract institutional money versus high net money.
They include risk assessment, governance, training, access control, vendor management, and information sharing. Additionally, firms must provide employees training during the onboarding processes as well as periodically during employment. For example, system safeguards such as data protection, disaster recovery measures and email archiving are requirements under Dodd-Frank. Having released two extensive questionnaires and several risk alerts focused on security, the SEC has made it clear to investment firms that they will be investigating the practices employed at firms and increasing expectations for the future.
Startups have a variety of options when it comes to settling on their technology infrastructure. Users can gain access to email, file services and applications from virtually anywhere, and built-in disaster recovery provides confidence that everything is protected from the inside out.
Users should understand how security threats may present themselves (phishing schemes, social engineering, etc.) as well as how they can become cybersecurity assets to your firm. Successfully operating a new startup beyond the first year is a feat many managers struggle to accomplish, therefore it's critical for emerging managers to gain a full understanding of the industry that awaits them and the hurdles they should expect to face. Understanding the need and importance of implementing a backup solution can add instrumental value to your business.
With today’s financial services companies managing exponentially growing volumes of sensitive data, the risk of loss grows as well. If something were to happen to the data center where your production system lives, you can resume operations in DR. Having a third-party backup solution provides geographic diversity of data assets, which is key for a complete business strategy.
Recently, KeepItSafe highlighted the success of a backup and recovery case when a company’s servers crashed, and with it, so too did their records of billing history, accounts receivable and accounts payable.
Similarly, businesses across a wide range of industry sectors, particularly those in the health care, retail and financial services industries1, are exposed to potentially enormous liability and costs as a result of Cyber incidents and data breaches.
Increased regulation at federal and state levels related to information security and breach notification is expanding the legal avenues that may be pursued. Behavior quizzes offer entertainment to discover your celebrity and fairytale doppelgängers, or breakfast food and ice cream personality matches.
These sources generally ask us challenge questions as an additional level of security, such as, the make of our first car, hometown city, high school mascot or nickname.

Toxicology, and science in general, continues to suffer from a lack of sustained investment and commitment from academic institutions, corporations, and government entities.
The basic principles of the use of animal models of disease is reviewed as well as the advantages and disadvantages of these models. This live webinar is open only to members of the partnering societies of the SLC listed on the SLC website, and you must register to attend. However, the use of animal models, particularly for rare disease drugs, is increasing, and regulators are tasked with determining whether the data generated in these models are adequate to support drug development and approval of safe and effective therapies, with limited clinical trial data. Patricia Brown, OLAW Director, discusses why this application section is required, what reviewers look for, and more. The CEF Panel addresses questions related to safety in the use of materials in contact with food (substances used to manufacture food contact materials and processes to recycle plastics intended for food contact), food enzymes, flavouring substances, processing aids, and processes. This series will provide pharmaceutical industry and regulatory perspectives on this topic.
The aim of this webinar is to review the use of animal models of disease in the evaluation of exaggerated pharmacology and toxicity to improve the relevance and extrapolation of the assessments to the intended disease population. On December 3, a workshop on exposure and risk calculation was given to a smaller audience of approximately 30 students and faculty.
Michael Kordi, the rector of the university, to discuss potential future collaboration with this large and important regional institution.
The main focus will be two-fold: to improve our understanding of ocular toxicology, pharmacology, and safety assessment and to increase our understanding of the challenges associated with the development of the next generation of ocular drugs and devices. As a master regulator of gene expression, the epigenome is responsive to a diverse range of environmental factors including toxicant exposure, diet, stress, and socioeconomic circumstances. I cannot thank the SOT Education Committee enough for giving me this enthralling opportunity to make a strong impact on a group of students and faculty in India. The needs, obstacles, and questions the students had regarding career and education in the field of toxicology came to light and I did my best to provide answers to those issues. Our journal has been ahead of most in addressing these issues and expanding editorial policies to improve the rigor, reliability, and reproducibility of the science that appears within. The award recipient is selected by the CDI and may be either a graduate student or undergraduate student.
The Sunday program is open to any undergraduate student who registered for the Annual Meeting, including the 2016 Pfizer SOT Undergraduate Travel Award Recipients.
Featured themes include understanding inter-individual sensitivity, mechanisms of transgenerational inheritance, advances in high throughput screening, and emerging chemicals of concern. Symposia topics include early prenatal diagnosis of birth defects, testicular dysgenesis syndrome, and thrombosis during pregnancy. The content of this course will provide information that could be helpful to those seeking certification in toxicology or to those seeking more advanced training in toxicology. It's an appropriate course for physicians preparing for their board exams as well as any medical professional interested in increasing his or her understanding of the impact of toxicology on human health and local communities.
The webinar series is sponsored by the American Cleaning Institute (ACI), in collaboration with the Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) Center, University of Cincinnati and endorsed by the Society of Toxicology and Society for Risk Analysis. The goal of this meeting is to communicate recent discoveries and promote discussion of miRNA biomarker research efforts between consortia partners and independent researchers as a critical step toward the streamlined utilization of promising biomarkers for nonclinical and clinical safety assessment. Visit the Modular Course website for course registration, course content, lodging, and other course information.
Symposia topics include: case studies on current issues within the field of genetic toxicology, exploring the role of DNA damage in epigenetics, recent advances in screening technologies, and the Pig-a gene mutation assay, as well as new techniques for identifying rare genotoxic events. Organisations are becoming more team-based, with flatter and less hierarchical structures that see five generations working together - often dotted across different locations, using technology to connect and work.


Organisations with effective induction are more likely to retain their new recruits for longer. The process also enables learning professionals to reflect on five key issues that impact on designing and delivering a modernised learning strategy. We hope that our contribution will help shape an environment where real-world research informs organisational improvement. Although your ideas may be compelling, it's not easy to execute a plan without support, co-operation and collaboration from peers, stakeholders and business leaders. Trebuie sa fim mandri, pentru ca este pentru prima data cand o singura tara este luata ca partener in organizarea acestui important eveniment, de obicei se recurge la prezentarea unui amalgam de culturi dintr-o anumita parte a lumii. Va rugam sa trimiteti tuturor cunoscutilor dumneavoastra aceasta invitatie, pentru a spori sansa ca un tanar roman sa castige premiul si recunoasterea speciala in timpul ceremoniei.

Tireless efforts of the government, industry and academia are spent towards making such nanotechnological advancements functional and accessible. Also, if you have other ideas of partnership, or if you have any relevant contacts, they would be greatly appreciated.
The project involves a survey to collect ideas and input about other ways in which internationally educated engineers might demonstrate that they have the necessary knowledge and experience to practice safely and competently in Canada. Moore Award in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to pocket him a sweet $75,000. We also had the opportunity to hear from one of the AREC mentors, Felicia Pop about her positive experience as a mentor in the program. They are also realists who abhor abstraction and rigorous planners with a strong sense of discipline. It will give everyone a chance to catch up with SME Toronto news and meet some old friends and some new ones. It’s not about not trusting your employees, but more so about not trusting the technology behind those employees. Beyond industry experience, take note of a service provider's reputation in the industry. Wouldn't it be easier to engage with a provider that features solutions and services to complement your firm's entire IT foundation? In selecting a cloud services provider, you want a partner who can grow with your firm, even if today that firm is only made of a handful of employees. Hackers will attempt to convince an employee to breach normal email security procedures or trick them into downloading malicious malware, spyware or codes. You may (and hopefully do) have advanced email security mechanisms in place, but you still have to train your employees because scams are only going to get more sophisticated. He urges new managers to pick an IT solution with operational growth in mind -- considering the business not at the onset, but in three to five years.
It appears that the initial point of entry for the hackers was a spear-phishing email, potentially sent weeks before the fraud took place, which allowed the criminals time to remotely monitor and probe the bank’s networks without detection. Obtaining such details and observing communications provides criminals with the tools to mirror email addresses, website URLs and dialect. Regardless of the assets your firm is launching with, you will be expected to have sophisticated and comprehensive policies and procedures in place from day one to combat cyber threats. With the birth of cloud technology, firms can save on upfront capital expenditures and host their infrastructure in the cloud – providing flexibility within those startup budgets.
A reputable cloud services provider not only provides world-class infrastructure and resiliency; it also assumes responsibility for the management and daily maintenance of your cloud environment.
Investors also have high expectations, and before they will even consider allocating money to your firm, they want to understand what protections you’ve put in place to protect their assets. However, if something is deleted in the production environment, that action is typically mirrored, thus deleted in DR as well. DR allows the rapid recovery of IT operations while cloud backups provide another layer of protection by leveraging a third-party vendor to secure your data in an alternative location.
More recently, in 2014, two major retailers reported that the total costs of data breach and related class action lawsuits (less expected insurance recovery) was estimated at $63 million and $191 million, respectively.
In 2014, the agency issued a press release announcing its 50th Data Security Settlement on behalf of consumers. To partake in this social extravaganza, we hand over our personal information freely, forgetting its value somewhere between each hashtag and viral post.

Een paar minuten voor het afgesproken tijdstip ga je naar de webpagina via de link die je hiervoor hebt gekregen via de mail. We are being asked to train more students, perform more experiments, complete more paperwork, and publish more papers, yet the necessary investment in the infrastructure of science has not kept pace. In addition, specific examples of the use of these models in safety assessments are presented.
In general, nonclinical studies to support clinical trial initiation and ongoing development of small molecules and biologics are guided by ICH M3 and ICH S6; however, review divisions may apply regulatory flexibility.
The work of the two Panels mainly concerns substances evaluated by EFSA before their use can be authorized in the European Union. The basic principles of the use of animal models of disease will be reviewed as well as the advantages and disadvantages of these models.
Ternopol State Medical University has an enrollment of 4,063 students, including 1,200 foreign students from 62 countries. Farland was the US Environmental Protection Agency Deputy Administrator, Science, from 2001–2006. Traditional toxicological paradigms have relied on factors such as age, genetic polymorphisms, and disease status to identify variability in responsiveness to environmental toxicant exposure; however, these factors are neither sufficient to faithfully identify differentially responsive individuals, nor are they modifiable factors that can be leveraged to mitigate adverse health effects of toxicant exposures.
A primary goal of this meeting is to feature new investigators, new technology, and new areas of concern, including potential effects on pollinators. There will be numerous career development events designed specifically for students and new and early stage investigators. In particular, the organizing committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field.
Topics span organ systems and disease models and will include up-to-date thinking about how the AHR is relevant to the development and function of many organ systems, to numerous diseases, as well as to drug discovery and environmental health. The faculty consists of well-recognized experts in their field of study and most are Board Certified by the American Board of Toxicology (ABT). IUTOX is proud to present this meeting where toxicologists from around the world will share their recent findings with colleagues and other ICTXIV delegates.
In particular, the committee has focused on the two challenges that were considered to be of the highest importance in the field.
Entering awards can be a daunting and time-consuming process - an additional task on top of everyday work.
They get new employees up to speed quicker and help them reach their performance goals earlier.In its 2014 report about on onboarding, Aberdeen Group found that 68% of companies had no formal process in place. Please take the time to participate in the online survey and share your views about this important issue. One of our Mentees was present at the meeting Alexandra Buda who completed the program and we heard a heart felt message written by another AREC Mentee, Lucian Raileanu. The less data employees can get to, the less damage can be done via an internal breach or external hack. If their resume touts long-standing relationships with clients just like your firm, that's a telling sign. Think: disaster recovery, email archiving, information security planning, telephony services. If all goes well, that number will grow over time, and you'll need an IT solution to grow along with you. Fortunately, experienced IT providers have the ability to invest heavily in security protections that can detect and prevent outside cyber threats and can even help train your staff to ward off internal incidents. The service provider should not only address day-to-day operations but also anticipate potential problems down the road. Phishing now refers to any message-based attack, whether that be email, IM, or on a social media network. The end result is the criminal’s identity masqueraded as a legitimate, trustworthy source. Be sure to enable your firm’s processes to comply with SEC recommendations including risk assessments, infrastructure practices, policy documentation, etc. With hackers savvier than ever and financial firms as known targets, it’s critical that firms establish a comprehensive approach to security to not only meet investor and regulatory demands but also to protect firm assets and mitigate business risk. Backups, on the other hand, create an offline copy of your data which is not accessible except to restore, sometimes utilizing a third-party vendor to store that data in an alternate location. The importance of protecting this data is interconnected to the importance of the overall operations of the business. And, this year, two major health care companies are separately facing several lawsuits as a result of data breaches that reportedly exposed the personal records of 80 million and 11 million people, respectively. One of those settlements involved the much publicized 2006 settlement with a data aggregation company wherein the company agreed to pay $10 million in civil penalties and $5 million in consumer redress for time customers may have spent to monitor and repair their credit following a breach that exposed their personal information.
Federal laws, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, have requirements to safeguard the privacy of personal information, and some states require notification to the state attorney general.
Op het beeldscherm zag ik niemand, maar ik hoorde wel de spreker, Toby Hassefras van bestesollicitatiebrief.nl.
As toxicologists we must engage legislators (local to global), regulators, and scientific administrators to emphasize the importance of the foundation on which biomedical research is conducted. In addition, specific examples of the use of these models in safety assessments will be presented.
Korchevskiy had the opportunity to tell the audience about the importance of toxicological professions and the priorities for the Society of Toxicology. For more information including continuing education and abstract submission, please visit the conference website. We continue to identify ways to enhance the quality of our science and welcome feedback from our readers to guide us in this process.
Rychlik, Allan Somers, and Pamella Tijerina led and inspired the students throughout the entire three-day program. An associated Gordon Research Seminar will be held in conjunction, led and organized by trainees, and featuring work in the area of genes, genetics, and genomics. For additional information and to register, please visit the Teratology Annual Meeting website. His graduate research was in the multi-disciplinary field of nanotechnology which included molecular chemistry and laser physics (Ryerson). This is an opportunity to influence regulatory bodies across Canada as they consider possible alternatives to the Canadian work experience requirement. Last but not least I greatly appreciated the presence of Nicolae Peres, AREC's Vice-President who reiterated AREC's committment to the program. If not forthcoming, you may open up your firm to serious regulatory and criminal prosecution. Your cloud services provider should act as your trusted technology adviser and, as such, give you the flexibility and time you need to focus on your investment priorities without worrying about security updates and patch controls. If access to a file was lost in both production and DR, backups grant the ability to recover the data and continue business as usual.
This is an example of a successful case; however, many businesses lacking a backup solution are not so lucky. While these matters have yet to be resolved, the anticipated costs of litigation and settlement may set records. Given this ever-evolving and regulatory landscape, companies should expect an increase in third-party liability claims led by federal regulatory agencies as evidenced by a March 2015 federal court decision involving a large hotel chain wherein the court held that the FTC has regulatory authority to enforce data security practices. Since, also, the trades have not actually been executed; the results may have been under or over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors such as liquidity, slippage and commissions. Mijn vragen kon ik online stellen via de pc en die werden dan tijdens de sessie beantwoord.
Focusing on emerging ideas and transformative approaches will be a unifying basis from which participants working on every level from molecule to man can converge and discuss the past, present, and future of the Endocrine Disruptor Chemical (EDC) field. Immunogenicity of these therapeutics is a significant confounding factor and often makes nonclinical risk assessment difficult. To ensure an interactive meeting, registration is limited, so act soon to guarantee your place.
Abstracts from students and new investigators received by March 4, 2016, will automatically qualify for potential travel awards.
It provides L&D teams with the perfect chance to step back and think about what has led to current organisational successes, before sharing those stories and successes.There is nothing more satisfying at work than thinking over your recent activities and realising that there is a lot to be proud of! They not only need to meet fundamental business targets, but must be dynamic problem solvers who know how to roll with (constant) change.Leadership and management skills really matter - and this includes mindsets, behaviours, values and the ability to reflect, change and grow. We'll be digging into Towards Maturity's data to see what it tell us about changes in onboarding practice, as well as picking out some practical ideas that could inspire change in your own organisation. Top performing L&D teams are 3-5 times more likely to be delivering improved productivity and agility today and have much to teach us. I have had the pleasure of working with them and their customers for a number of years and have seen first hand their commitment to identifying and sharing great practices that really work. This seminar will help to improve the awareness of "nano" as well as to hopefully better engage public opinion in future nanotech developments and policy.
Such decisions should be based solely on your evaluation of your financial circumstances, investment objectives, risk tolerance and liquidity needs. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. Gehring had a strong interest in encouraging individuals from groups underrepresented in the sciences to enter biomedical sciences and toxicology. Only 13% of retailers are investing in blended learning while the average across all sectors is double that figure (26%), with top learning companies nearly three times more likely to be using blends than retail companies (35%). Seek, support and develop leaders right and you'll have more engaged, productive, and profitable businesses. It provides contemporary measures that focus on performance improvement and great tactics that help L&D teams become more responsive to the changing needs of business. This research highlights the fact that L&D teams must develop new mind-sets and skills, quickly. No representation is being made that any portfolio will, or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
The development of these technologies is complicated by their complex and novel composition, the local cellular response often observed against these systems within the eye, and a lack of clear regulatory guidance in the field. This may be due to a lack of required skills and knowledge, as the research indicates over half lack the confidence in incorporating new media in learning design and only 4% believe their L&D teams have the skills for facilitating collaboration.
Benchmarking can help you get started on your way to winning and help you clarify what's been successful - here are 6 perfectly valid reasons to use it.How benchmarking can helpWe are not promising that benchmarking will definitely lead to trophies in the cabinet.
So it's no wonder that companies spent nearly $31 billion on leadership programs last year. It leverages the data of its in-depth Benchmark Study, the largest learning technology benchmark in Europe. The Manufacturing Engineering role will see strong demand but the ME role continues to evolve and specifying the role is widely misunderstood by all concerned and is now a critical review topic. For additional information and to register, go to the Ocular Toxicology conference website. What is more 71% do not believe that their own staff lack skills to manage their own learning. Secondly, the scale of the work ahead, as 95% of respondents want to improve induction with only 39% meeting that goal. Also, just 23% agree that their L&D teams have the skills to use technology for business advantage.
These are tried and tested approaches that we've used in partnership with our clients to produce effective and award-winning learning interventions that deliver impactful change.1. Maria Neira, Director, Public Health and Environment Department, World Health Organization; Dr. With such a big gap between aspiration and performance, the induction challenge seems daunting but there is evidence that learning innovation is turning the tide. Here are six compelling reasons why benchmarking can help turn the possibility of being an award winner into a reality:1. The Towards Maturity benchmarking process gets organisations, and L&D in particular, thinking on the right track.
These aren't the only source of future leaders, of course, as many other potentials are already in-house, out there to be recruited or returning to work after having children. Incredibly, ‘Top Deckers' are 50 times more likely than the lowest performers to improve talent strategies to keep their best people. However, the world of work is changing and organisations are increasingly looking for more modern approaches to learning that support the fast-moving world of work and the needs of an increasingly digital workforce. It’s a great place to start, if you want to establish a strong foundation for change. Work with the subject matter expert or the business customer to identify the main objective of the programme. Our research with employees in this sector shows that staff are more able to learn for themselves than L&D give them credit for. The vast majority we talked with were frustrated by the lack of transfer back to the job after managers had participated in training. Using real life ideas can help inspire new approaches that will make a difference in your own situation. This will not only help you design the programme, but will also help you measure its effectiveness. It's very easy in today's busy world to not make time for reflection, yet reflection is critical to success.
Inspiration by example We've identified four techniques used by organisations in their induction programmes that relate to the tactics of the top performing organisations highlight in the Towards Maturity Industry Benchmark Report. The purpose of the Show is to inform and inspire L&D professionals to improve not just their personal performance but that of their organisation. They are three times more likely to use benchmarking as a performance improvement tool - benchmarking against the tactics that improve performance. By benchmarking you enable yourself to reflect, take stock and focus on the activities that really make a difference.2. First, it seems there's a lack of measures put in place for management and leadership training. While every organisation is different, examples of good practice and innovation in other companies can offer inspiration for change.
By reflecting on and analysing organisational performance, activities and practices, L&D can identify organisational strengths and areas of high performance. Secondly, it seems that the learning strategy many apply to management and leadership training is often out of sync with the audience's needs. The leading sports retailer has been providing online onboarding since 2013 with more than 25,000 employees, across the 19 countries going through the programme. Data from Towards Maturity reveals that 83% of new starters like to learn at their own pace, with 44% using their own mobile to learn.With this in mind, Sports Direct used the Adapt multi-device responsive elearning framework for its online content.
Receive your Personalised Benchmark report analysing current performance and tailored action plans valued at £300 - free until 15 July.
Just as importantly, benchmarking identifies weaknesses and those areas of low performance. It means employees can access the elearning on a smartphone or tablet, giving them maximum flexibility. You can read more about Sports Direct's approach to induction in Inside Learning Technologies & Skills magazine.
Only 39% offer mobile content, and 30% have no plans to implement social media for leadership development. It's no wonder then, that there is a lack of transfer from learning to doing, if the learning doesn't fit in with everyday lives and habits in the first place and isn't focused on supporting performance there and then.
Towards Maturity data reveals that 87% of Top Deck organisations agree that top managers are involved in promoting learning, compared with an average of 37%.UK infrastructure company, Story Contracting features a video message from the company owner and Chief Executive, Fred Story in its new online induction.
The not for profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
Pinpointing strengths and weaknesses enables L&D and business leaders to really hone in on performance.
This isn't to say there aren't some great examples of modern, blended, performance-focused leadership development - there are some cited in Towards Maturity's paper. What can we learn from these?How leadership solutions can #makeithappenIt's time to close the gaps and deliver the type of learning solutions that will engage and really help leaders. Benchmarking does what it says: it provides organisations with a benchmark to measure themselves against others. To really help them, we need to offer easy to find performance support that is genuinely useful and relevant to leaders and managers' points of need. New staff and partners joining Specsavers are able to earn a virtual coin by completing the company's new induction course. You can use it to see how you are performing on various aspects of organisational practice compared to others. The business then makes a real cash donation to the charity chosen by employees in proportion to the number of virtual coins earned.You can read more about the Specsavers' approach here. We will update you on what is happening within North America to re-install our manufacturing sectors and the ongoing initiatives within Canada. Since 2003, over 4,500 organisations and 23,000 learners have contributed to Towards Maturity's leading benchmarks.
For example, have you properly embraced mobile learning and are reaping the kinds of benefits that some organisations are enjoying? But we also need to help develop those deeper skills and behaviours in ways that fit with leader's (crazy) lifestyles. What are the top performing companies in the Towards Maturity benchmark doing in terms of mobile learning?
As a baseline, that means moving away from solely ‘event' based learning - three-day workshops or long online courses - and embracing more resource or micro-learning approaches that provide short challenges and tasks as nuggets that help build skills and insights over time. An average of 48% of Benchmark respondents reported that elearning not being tailored sufficiently was a barrier to success.
It can be really useful to know what characteristics top performing companies have in common and what is driving their success.5.
We would say that providing simulations, interactive videos and meaningful games can make smart use of a leaders' precious time, and build the competence and confidence leadership roles require - so ROI for L&D too. United Biscuits (UB), the company behind household names such as McVitie's, Jaffa Cakes and Penguin, wanted to make sure its induction programme was relevant to both new starters and any existing employees who might access the training. UB used video of real employees talking about their jobs to add relevance and authenticity to the content.You can read more about the experience at United Biscuits in HR Grapevine magazine.
This report gives clear, insightful indicators about your strategy's current strengths and how that compares to your peers. Supporting or providing social spaces for informal learning and sharing is key too - the how will depend on who your audience is and how they currently work together.Measurement comes into play here as you have managers, teams, and peers providing tailored feedback about performance and application. But leadership and management development is often holistic, and ongoing - like a journey rather than a series of interventions.
The aim is to help L&D professionals focus on one area of action that will help them deliver impact. To track what tools, learning, and performance support is used by an individual is a bit of a red-herring - especially if you're genuinely offering it up to help them in anyway that works for them. And, if improving induction is your focus, there are more ideas in Sponge UK's Rough Guide to Induction. There has to be some bigger, business goals to be measured, alongside the individuals' performance or growth targets, and it might take a little while for the data to come in for these.
