Continuum GRC's IT Audit Machine (ITAM) RegTech solution helps organizations and service providers slash compliance costs with its efficient, user-friendly GRC modules. Continuum GRC’s IT Audit Machine (ITAM) RegTech solution is offering badly needed relief to organizations that are being overwhelmed by skyrocketing compliance costs, the company announced today. In 2016, Let’s Talk Payments reported that financial institutions alone spend more than $70 billion on compliance annually. This staggering cost hampers the ability of organizations to innovate, create, and grow, notes Michael Peters, CEO of Continuum GRC. “Compliance is not a business driver; it is a business cost,” notes Peters. “Every dollar and hour a company spends on compliance is time and money that it cannot spend on daily operations or profit-driving innovations related to its core competency.” One of the problems, Peters says, is that many companies – including most third-party assessors – still use spreadsheets for compliance reporting. “Excel is a great program for putting together a household budget,” he says, “but it is poorly suited for enterprise compliance purposes. It simply cannot handle large, complex data sets. Plus, regulations and standards are continuously evolving and changing. Excel does not keep track of those changes. You might end up in a situation where you’re compliant with last year’s standards, but not the current ones. RegTech solutions like the ITAM automate the process, fix this problem, and save time and money overall while delivering better results.” Through integration with the Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) database, the ITAM ensures that companies remain compliant as standards evolve, with access to harmonized controls covering numerous compliance requirements, such as FedRAMP, SSAE 16, COBIT, ISO 27001, ISO 27002, ISO 27005, SOX, FFIEC, PCI, GLBA, HIPAA, CMS, NERC CIP and other federal and state mandates. The software simplifies the compliance process with its user-friendly, self-help modules that eliminate what Peters calls “audit anarchy” and allows organizations to “go from zero to compliance” in record time. On average, Peters reports, organizations that switch to the ITAM speed up their GRC assessments and reporting processes by 180%. Realizing that not all companies have the time or resources to handle their compliance in-house, Continuum GRC offers ITAM customers three service levels: the DIY self-help version; the Cybervisor-supported version, where organizations can call on the assistance of Continuum GRC’s compliance experts; and the full-service version, where Continuum GRC’s experts perform all the work. Additionally, there is a special service provider ITAM edition specifically developed for third-party assessors who want harness the power of RegTech to help their own clients. “Regulations are necessary, but compliance requirements should not cripple an organization’s finances and disrupt their daily operations,” says Peters. “Continuum GRC is committed to continuously improving the ITAM to take the pain out of the compliance process.” Continuum GRC’s primary purpose is to help organizations attain, maintain, and demonstrate compliance and information security excellence, in any jurisdiction. Continuum GRC specializes in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) cyber security solutions and is fully dedicated to global success in these disciplines.

Small yellow submarine Boaty McBoatface is off to its first scientific mission in the Antarctic this month. The unmanned vehicle was called as such after a competition in the United Kingdom sought out names for the new polar research ship. At one point, the country’s Natural Environment Research Council overrode the winning “Boaty McBoatface” entry in its own contest and mulled naming the vessel RRS Sir David Attenborough instead. A campaign from the NERC asked the public to suggest names for the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), poised to travel beneath ice at depths of 6,000 meters (19,685 feet) and transmit collected data to scientists through a radio link. The NERC said it would have the final say on the £200 million (around $244 million) ship, now being constructed by Cammell Laird in Birkenhead. So it instead named it after naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, reported The Guardian. In a previous interview, Attenborough said it would be huge honor to see the ship named after him. In response to questions about the Boaty label, he said that the name proposed by a radio journalist was likely “meant in a jokey kind of way,” after which people also probably voted in a joking manner. “People take the names of their ships quite seriously. I served in the navy at the end of the late 1940s and we cared about the name of our ship,” he said. Agency bosses, however, finally decided to honor the public vote and let the Boaty name for the remotely operated submarine live in. Boaty McBoatface’s mission, however, is not one to be taken lightly. It is tasked to probe water flow as well as turbulence in the dark recesses of the Orkney Passage, a deep region off the Southern Ocean. The resulting data will assist researchers in further understanding how the oceans act in response to global warming. It will travel with an expedition called Dynamics of the Orkney Passage Outflow (DynOPO) on the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) research vessel James Clark Ross, leading from Chile’s Punta Arenas on March 17. “The Orkney Passage is a key choke-point to the flow of abyssal waters in which we expect the mechanism linking changing winds to abyssal water warming to operate,” explained lead scientist and University of Southampton professor Alberto Naveira Garabato. The team will measure the speed of stream flow, turbulence, and their response to wind changes over the ocean in a bid to determine complex processes in the area and represent them in climate models predicting changes in the 21st century and beyond. Boaty will be provided with acoustic and chemical sensors in 2019 and deployed into the North Sea to scour for signals linked to artificial release of gas under the seabed. Boaty is also planned to cross the Arctic Ocean under ice for the first time, a groundbreaking research effort in this critical region. The UK’s National Oceanography Center has also released Boaty’s cartoon version to educate children on marine research, with a full-sized, inflatable version planned to travel to events nationwide. A study this month warned that severe ocean acidification is engulfing the Arctic Ocean, particularly the Western Arctic Ocean, and a host of marine animals including shellfish and other crucial links in the food web are bearing the brunt of the changes. Acidification at the Arctic sea, according to researchers, is exacerbated by the entry of Pacific Ocean waters into the Arctic during winters and abetted by ocean currents and Arctic sea ice loss, which allows for expanding the acidic water levels. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.

Oxytocin occurs in all mammals, and plays a vital role in parental and social bonding, and treatments are increasingly being used in medical trials to treat human psychological conditions such as autism. Understanding how to give oxytocin to individuals, and what behaviours will be changed by the treatments, is crucial to developing safe medical applications for the hormone. New research funded by the National Environmental Research Council (NERC) and published today (24 May 2017) in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B by Dr Kelly Robinson, a research fellow at the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU), and colleagues at the University of St Andrews and Durham University shows that increasing oxytocin levels causes pro-social behavioural changes that persist across several days in wild grey seals. During the study on the Isle of May off the coast of Fife, Scotland, Dr Robinson carried out oxytocin treatments on grey seals that had never met each other previously, and recorded their behavioural responses. Pairs of seals given the hormone spent more time in close proximity to each other, were less aggressive and spent less time investigating the other individual (an indication of familiarity) than pairs given control saline treatments. The behavioural changes triggered by the oxytocin treatment were still present in the seals at least two days after receiving oxytocin, long after the hormone would have been broken down. Oxytocin concentrations have been linked to how close grey seal mothers stay with their pups. By using an oxytocin dose that mimics natural concentrations in this species, the study confirmed that elevated oxytocin encourages individuals to remain close to each other. This is the first time it has been possible to verify an oxytocin-behaviour relationship in wild individuals. Researchers also found that treatment with the hormone additionally triggered low aggression and less investigation of unfamiliar individuals, pro-social behaviours that occur independently of natural oxytocin release in seals. Dr Robinson said: "This study proves that oxytocin promotes individuals staying together, highlighting its fundamental role in forming and maintaining parental and social bonds. "By studying the underlying physiology motivating bonding, social and parental behaviour, we can better understand what factors influence their existence in a variety of animals including humans. It also allows us to perceive what is happening when such bonds break down, why the frequently negative consequences associated with such losses happen, and how hormone treatments could be used to influence or avoid such events."

Rainbow Seed Fund, an early-stage venture capital fund focused on building technology companies from the UK's research base, announced today an investment into University of Birmingham spinout Linear Diagnostics. The investment was match-funded with an award from the University of Birmingham’s Spinout Investment fund and the company received a total investment of £300,000. The investment will enable Linear Diagnostics to develop its platform technology into a handheld device that can rapidly detect the presence of bacterial infection and simultaneously identify the risk of resistance to the most commonly prescribed antibiotics, without the need for laboratory facilities. The device will provide a readout within minutes of sampling. The technology is based on a novel application of a technique called linear dichroism, which uses polarized light to measure the alignment of detector molecules. Linear dichroism has a number of advantages over current techniques: it can identify several different target types (bacteria, proteins, genes) in the same test, and provide a quantitative reading for each, from the same test sample. The first application to be developed will be a device for the detection of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and it is envisaged that the device will be used in both primary and secondary care where it will help restrict inappropriate prescriptions and contribute to the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Oliver Sexton, Investment Director for the Rainbow Seed Fund said: “Antimicrobial resistance is a global health concern, and there is a clear need for new strategies to tackle it. Rapid diagnosis can both curtail the ineffective antibiotic prescribing that fuels antimicrobial resistance, and identify the appropriate course of treatment for the individual patient.” Although the technology will initially be developed for the medical sector, it can be used to address markets in the agri-food, veterinary and defence settings. Dr James Wilkie, Director of Enterprise & Innovation at the University of Birmingham, said: “We have been impressed by the flexibility of the technology. In particular, the test is both qualitative and quantitative, which significantly increases the scope of its potential applications.” Dr Matt Hicks, Chief Technology Officer and founder of Linear Diagnostics said: “The investment comes at a crucial inflexion point for the company. We have achieved proof of concept, and now have partnerships in place that will steer rapid development in an area of high unmet need, which also has a high volume of tests.” About Linear Diagnostics Linear Diagnostics was formed in 2011 to commercialise a patented technology developed at the University of Birmingham. The company was established as a joint venture between founders Professor Tim Dafforn and Dr Matt Hicks, Abingdon Health Ltd, and the University of Birmingham. The company is based at the BioHub Birmingham®, a purpose-built incubator facility in the Edgbaston Medical Quarter. For further company information please contact Dr Matt Hicks, Chief Technology Officer at mhicks(at)lineardiagnostics(dot)com About Rainbow Seed Fund The Rainbow Seed Fund is an early-stage venture capital fund dedicated to kick-starting technology companies from great science emerging from the National Research & Innovation Campuses.
