Del

Scientist.com, the life science industry’s leading online marketplace for outsourced research, announced the successful conclusion of a four-part podcast series on human biological samples and biobanking. The four guests offered thoughtful insights and ideas from an academic, pharmaceutical and small business perspective. The episodes were hosted by Mendelspod, one of the life science industry’s leading podcasts.

“This is the second time we’ve covered human biospecimen quality and governance on this show, which tells me that people are interested and looking for answers,” said Theral Timpson, Host, Producer and Co-Founder of Mendelspod. “What Scientist.com is doing—offering a self-regulatory solution within the life sciences—is a practical first step toward filling an important gap.”

The series featured experts in biospecimen regulation, biobanking and compliance, including Carolyn Compton, PhD, Chief Medical Officer of the National Biomarker Development Alliance and ASU professor; Shannon McCall, PhD, Director of the Precision Cancer Medicine Initiative at the Biorepository and Precision Pathology Center at Duke University; Kirstin Goldring, PhD, Counselor at the European Society for Biopreservation and Biobanking and member of ISBER; and Matt McLoughlin, Vice President of Compliance at Scientist.com. Topics covered ranged from the sustainability of biobanks to a discussion of COMPLi™—Scientist.com’s proprietary compliance framework for overseeing the acquisition of human biological samples for research.

“It was an honor to be included amongst a group of such distinguished and knowledgeable speakers on the topic of human biospecimen quality and biobanking,” commented McLoughlin. “Forums like these raise awareness regarding the sustainability of biobanks and help us create a more standardized set of rules governing human biospecimen acquisition.”

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.

CSC Announces Cyber Security Findings for the Media Industry20.6.2019 15:00:00 CESTPressemelding

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.
