Equifax Advises Students Heading onto the Jobs Market Should Take Care Where They Share Their Personal Details


(PRWEB UK) 25 July 2013

The proliferation of social media has undoubtedly had an impact on how people look for jobs and probably nowhere more so than for students heading onto the jobs market for the first time. Data released earlier in the year* suggested that over the past two years, nearly two thirds of employers (59%) have increased the proportion of vacancies that they advertise on social media platforms such as Facebook and LinkedIn. This is good news for those looking for a new job, but leading ID fraud expert, Equifax, is urging job seekers to take care when posting CVs online and through social media sites.

Job seekers have become increasingly reliant on online recruitment sites to secure employment, explained Neil Munroe, External Affairs Director at Equifax. But people desperately trying to find a new job are also prime targets for fraudsters. Unfortunately, posting CVs online can increase the risk of falling victim to ID fraud and phishing emails.

Young people trying to get onto the jobs ladder could fall into the trap of placing more trust than they should in websites they find and post or provide an enormous amount of personal information online when they upload their CV. There are of course many job recruitment sites that are reputable and secure, but fraudsters are unscrupulous and will use any method to obtain personal information. We are therefore urging job hunters to look closely at the sites they are using to ensure they are legitimate and secure before providing any information.

The Metropolitan Police claims that it takes just 3 pieces of personal information to commit ID fraud. Equifax is, therefore, advising those looking for jobs to be cautious about what information they supply and ensure that they are not revealing too much. Equifax is also warning job seekers not to succumb to phishing emails they might receive asking for information in exchange for possible job interviews.

It is completely understandable that job hunters are going to want to get their CV out to as many potential employers as possible, concluded Neil Munroe. But they really must be careful how much personal information they give away.

To help protect job seekers from becoming victims of ID fraud when trying to find their dream job, Equifax has put together the following tips:

TOP TIPS TO PROTECT PERSONAL DETAILS WHEN APPLYING FOR JOBS ONLINE


Dont give out all your personal information on your CV when posting it online or making it available to others you can always provide more information at a later date

Ensure that the company or individual that has got in contact with you is genuine by carrying out some background checks on them

Check that websites on which you upload personal details have security locks to reduce the risk of them being hacked into

Never send any bank account details until you are totally sure that the job you have been offered is genuine and can transfer money securely

Make sure you have virus protection on your computer, which is regularly updated and a Firewall

After the Revolution in Touch Computing Made Possible by Windows 8, Senior Care Corners New Tips for Selecting Computers for Seniors


Greenville, SC (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

The art of selecting a computer for senior loved ones was redefined going into the 2012 holiday season by Microsofts introduction of Windows 8 and the accompanying announcements of new computing devices utilizing the Windows 8 touchscreen capability. Among the beneficiaries are older adults and the family members seeking to demonstrate how easy it is to gain the benefits of going online and participating in social networking.

Reflecting this major change in product offerings, and both the opportunities and confusion that it may drive just as the shopping season begins, Senior Care Corner has developed new tips for those choosing computing gifts for senior loved ones.

Were thrilled by the opportunity the wide range of touchscreen devices offers to seniors previously unable to use or uncomfortable using computers says Barry Birkett of Senior Care Corner. We want to help family caregivers and other loved ones open new doors for older adults through the web and social networking.

Considerations When Selecting Computing Devices for Seniors

Taking into account these points can improve the likelihood a device purchased for a senior loved one will provide enjoyment and other benefits well after a gift is unwrapped.

Consider how the device will be used.

The MedZilla.com Employment Report for November, 2012: Affordable Care Act Provides New Approach to Jobs and Medicine


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012

According to experts at the Urban Institute, despite implications that the new Healthcare bill may impede efforts for the nation's financial recovery, the data suggests otherwise. The Urban Institute conducts independent, evidence-based, economic and social policy research, collects data, evaluates social programs, and educates the public on key domestic issues. Researchers there have been studying various business and insurance models to examine the effects of the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) impact on coverage and costs per person on businesses of varying sizes.

Their model demonstrated that the ACA's regulations have only a minor impact on overall employer-sponsored coverage, including total costs. According to the study, "The law leaves large businesses' costs per person insured largely untouched and reduces them for small businesses. Only among mid-size businesses (with 101-1000 employees) would costs per person be noticeably higher, largely attributable to those employers not offering coverage today." (urban.org, 10/5/12) This seems to confirm other insurance models that large businesses have adopted for their employees for many years which utilize the unique coupling of a large insurance pool and the implementation of Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems such as Kaiser Permanente or Group Health Cooperative.

"This particular pairing provides an opportunity for Health Information Technology to bridge the gap between social and economic policy in a way which has far reaching implications of which the medical community has just scratched the surface. In the same way when NASA was able to put a satellite in orbit would have far more uses than merely keeping up with the Russian Space Program, EHR has the potential to revolutionize medical care, research, pharmaceuticals, and much more," says Del Johnston, Manager of Client Relations at MedZilla.com.

In a recent commentary by Eugene Steuerle, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and former advisor to the National Committee for Vital and Health Statistics, EHR technology could eventually be used to anonymously collect health information on a nationwide scale in order to for scientists to have access to data sets massively larger and more accurate than ever before. This kind of information could allow breakthroughs in understanding statistical trends which currently remain correlative anomalies. In the future, these large data sets being put together with computer statistical modeling software would allow doctors, researchers, pharmacists and other medical personnel to track an incredible amount of lifesaving information right from their examination rooms that they may otherwise be completely unaware of.

For example, regional outbreaks of specific symptoms could easily be attributed to their cause if the data is also available to match patients with a specific pharmaceutical that may need to be recalled, or a new strain of virus and be able to match the vital statistics of the carriers involved to identify the effected and potentially at risk populations within hours instead of weeks. Data can be assessed to find out why certain populations live longer, or do not seem affected by certain diseases such as Alzheimer's, Autism, or Parkinson's. Analysis such as these can take decades and come up with weak correlations because of limited data sets. (urban.org, 9/20/12)

John Burkhardt Managing Director of Medzilla.com cautions, "Right now the EHR technology just isn't standardized at all. So, while the possibilities are pretty exciting, it could be a long wait before this kind of thing could be implemented. Also, obviously, keeping in line with HIPAA, making sure everyone's health information is kept private and secure is always the biggest priority when implementing any new technology. That's also why we need good people in the business, though. There are a lot of exciting job possibilities on the horizon."

Adult Diapers Go High-Tech for Skin Health and Cost Savings for Long-Term Care Facilities


Neenah, Wis. (PRWEB) October 03, 2012

Sensor technology has been applied to the incontinence products category to create the SmartBrief, an intelligent adult brief, says Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership, a national retailer of incontinence products. It uses a patent-pending sensor and software to alert staff in nursing homes and skilled care centers when an adult diaper needs to be changed.

SmartBrief technology has the potential to reduce facility costs by eliminating unnecessary product changes, and its data tracking capabilities can make it easier to schedule staff and control inventory, Wilson says.

According to Gweepi Medical, the company that created the SmartBrief, using their patent-pending technology will result in cost savings for long-term care facilities and improved skin health for those who wear incontinence products. Wireless technology alerts staff when an incontinence product needs changing, and a user-friendly dashboard records data that administrators can use to track product inventory and operational efficiencies across multiple facilities.

One of its most important benefits to facility residents and their families is the potential for improved skin health, says Wilson. Removing urine and feces as soon as possible can help prevent skin breakdown and injury, increase wearer comfort and reduce urinary tract infections.

Gweepi Medical, based in Cambridge, Mass., and founded by a biomedical engineer and a software developer, is testing SmartBrief technology in a clinical setting and eventually will offer it to brief manufacturers. In addition, the company is researching cost-effective ways to apply the software to the home care setting.

Visit The CareGiver Partnership blog for further reading on incontinence and skin care.

The CareGiver Partnership is a national direct-to-consumer retailer of home healthcare products for incontinence, skin care, mobility, daily living aids, nutrition support and more. In its sixth year of providing products and services that help caregivers and loved ones maintain personal dignity, the company also offers an online library of more than 1,200 family caregiver resources and personal service by experts in caregiving.
