Many studies have linked hearing loss to serious conditions, such as cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, clinical depression, diabetes, heart disease and more. These linkages are often referred to as comorbidities—the simultaneous presence of two or more chronic conditions in an individual. The white paper by Harvey Abrams, Ph.D., focuses on the research literature surrounding seven comorbid conditions associated with hearing loss: social isolation, depression, increased risk of falling, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and even mortality.

Sometimes the best clues to a security breach aren’t found in the contents of the files that are traversing your network. Instead, they’re found in the details of the network metadata.

For without it, end users and IT shops would have faced daunting coding tasks attempting to cull the proper elements out of the SAP® ERP code for reporting. However, BW and the associated tools around it were rudimentary to begin with, and have not advanced to where it meets the pressing demands of todays’ end users.

It’s Time Businesses Wake up to the Mobile Security Reality - Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is here to stay, and so are the associated risks. IT administrators face a new reality: pressure to account for, manage and secure an array of new endpoints.
