ABOUT TEMPLETON RYE
Templeton Rye Whiskey tracks back to the early 1920s when residents of Templeton distilled a much sought-after rye whiskey. That bootlegging enterprise, forced underground during the Prohibition era, nonetheless flourished during that period. Today, the whiskey may be slightly different—instead of stills in basements and barns, the company has a modern, legal plant—but the entrepreneurial spirit remains true to Templeton’s roots. On August 7, 2018, Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC marked the beginning of a new chapter, highlighting a rich history with the community they call home by the official opening of the Templeton Distillery in Iowa. The 34,500 square-foot distillery, a $35 million project, was a significant investment in the community of Templeton.

The “Centre Hospitalier de la Côte Basque” in France Has Started the Evaluation of the Biolog-id’s C-LOG® Solution20.6.2019 15:35:00 CEST | Pressemelding
The Centre Hospitalier de la Côte Basque (CHCB) in Bayonne has been using Biolog-id's C-LOG® solution since early April 2019. This solution secures and optimizes the circuit of chemotherapy and immunotherapy, from their preparation all the way to the administration to the patient. The C-LOG® solution has been used at the CHCB. "During the last HAS audit, a lack of traceability was revealed in the chemotherapy circuit.

CSC Announces Cyber Security Findings for the Media Industry20.6.2019 15:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Securing a company’s digital infrastructure has become a major concern to corporations worldwide. With leading security companies and other organizations alerting corporations and the public to recent widespread, state-sponsored domain name system (DNS) hijacking, more and more brands are starting to take action. CSC has been issuing Cyber Security Reports since 2017, culling the most important information about security risks, and in particular, risks to brands that are not mitigated by a traditional firewall. The recent research conducted by CSC focuses on the media industry, revealing that 78% of global media brands use a corporate domain registrar, yet only 37% of those have a registrar lock to protect their DNS from hijacking. Recent domain hijacking, unauthorized changes, and deletion of vital domains have shown that effectively managing domain names and DNS must become a critical component for enhancing the security posture of any company with an online presence.
