A trend which is very concerning.”  Ms Smith said that awareness campaigns, such as Victoria’s Respect Older People: Call it out campaign, have also led to a greater recognition of the types and impacts that elder abuse can have on an older person. “The more people who know this, the better equipped we are as a society to end elder abuse. However, we also need more funding for frontline elder abuse services, and we need more aged care staff, whether they work in residential or in-home care, to be better trained to pick up on signs of elder abuse and to be able to respond effectively.” “As we have seen with the final report of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety elder abuse is far too common, but now that a light has started to shine on its prevalence, we need to take the opportunity to ensure that no older Australian ever experiences abuse again,” she said. Elder abuse is any act which causes harm to an older person and is carried out by someone they know and trust such as a family member or friend. The abuse may be physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual and can include mistreatment and neglect.  To interview Cindy Smith, please contact Noel McMahon on 0413 532 954.

If they want to keep their exploration stress-free and fun-packed, Margies Big Day out will ensure that they have a “big day” to remember. The tours incorporate the inevitable (and truly excellent) wineries, but also cheese, a taste of chocolate, and some truly amazing microbreweries.For some, beer-tasting is a connoisseur experience, taken nearly as seriously as wine-tasting so often is. For others, it’s simply a matter of enjoying the products of the brewmaster’s art along with great company and pleasant surroundings. With so much to do and see, it’s impossible for Margies tours to cover every craft brewery in one outing, but members of the tour can be sure of visiting at least two of Margaret River’s breweries and three of its wineries on any tour. Here’s a sneak peek at which breweries may be in store on one of the tours.Bootleg BrewerySet in spacious grounds, this brewery is well-known for its tasty craft beers and house cider. Beers range from the all-out Raging Bull to the subtler Session Ale, ensuring that regardless of beer preferences, visitors will find a brew to suit their palate. The BeerfarmAlthough the Beerfarm’s produce can only be classed as “craft beer” it’s one of the bigger Margaret River brands with widespread distribution. Apart from offering a range of beers that will delight every beer-lover, the Beerfarm also makes cider and a strawberry brew that was developed to help strawberry farmers save their harvest during the needle crisis and Covid19 border closures. Margaret River BrewhouseEven those who aren’t usually a fan of beer, will love the location of the Brewhouse - right on the banks of Margaret River itself. The core range of brews presents a taste adventure for beer lovers, and those who aren’t too sure about beer can enjoy the house ginger beer or one of the seasonal offerings which include an apricot and a blood orange sour.Cheeky Monkey Brewing CoIt won’t just be the beer-loving adults of the party who’ll enjoy a visit to Cheeky Monkey Brewing Company. The waterside grounds feature an extensive and well-maintained play park where kids can play to their hearts’ content. Meanwhile, the grown-ups can enjoy tasting the beer, cider, and ginger beer that makes up the brewery’s core range along with some of the seasonal specialities. Black Brewing CompanyOnce again, we have a relaxed venue offering beer tastings in a gorgeous setting, but beyond the beer and sours, there’s also a small distillery that’s known for its gins. It will definitely be difficult to walk away from this brewery without taking something along to enjoy at home.Colonial Brewing CompanyEach brewery in Margaret River and surrounds is unique, and each one offers unique brews. The Colonial Brewing Company is no exception. With countrywide distribution, people can enjoy these brews just about anywhere in Australia, but they’ll still enjoy tasting them most of all fresh from the tap at the brewery where they were made.Coming Back Soon: Bush Shack BreweryAfter full lockdown closure, the Bush Shack has plans to make its comeback - a move that will be welcomed by locals and visitors who enjoy its delicious, quirkily-named and humorously labelled brews. And of course, Margies Big Day out will be there!For more information visit Margies Big Day Out | Beer & Wine Tours Margaret River WA website or call their team of experts on +61 416 180 493.Syndicated by Baxton Media, The Market Influencers, Your Digital Marketing Agency. Behavioural Optometry Eye Doctor Bondi Sydney Vision Therapy Mypopia Prevention 2021-06-11T05:00:00Z behavioural-optometry-eye-doctor-bondi-sydney-vision-therapy-mypopia-prevention Behavioural Optometry and How it Saves Vision Behavioural optometry looks at the bigger picture when it comes to vision. Rather than purely checking the clarity of sight it revolves around how effective that sight is in terms of its functionality, usefulness, relevance, and accuracy. Australian behavioural optometrist, Jacqueline Gattegno, says all of these are revealed in the way people (and children in particular) respond and react to what they see, which can determine not only how well they see, but also affect their physical health and function.She said the behavioural optometry approach is far from the standard path followed by optometrists who base diagnoses and treatments on the results of a standard eye test for how clearly each eye sees letters which are 20ft away. “The problem for behavioural optometrists is that even those children who get a 20/20 test result which indicates perfect acuity in both eyes, can in some instances not have the functional and perceptual vision skills necessary for learning to read, write, solve math problems, or play sport. Nor does that result necessarily lead to good performance or behaviour in the classroom, or on the sports field,” Gattegno says. How Behavioural Optometry Tests for GlitchesBehavioural optometrists test and treat eyes by assessing attention and concentration spans, spatial relationships, performance levels and behaviour all of which, if out of sync, can be the result of a glitch in the complex visual system, and can affect how visual information is processed, delivered, received and applied. Teamwork in the Vision System is a Must According to Gattegno, teamwork is vital between the many different organs, pathways, nerves and neurons in the visual system. Just one hiccup can result in deficits in visual perceptual and functional skills, distorting people’s understanding of what is happening around them, how they see their place in the world, and how they fit into and function in it. These can indicate that the two eyes are not operating properly as a team, both with the brain and with each other. And it can show in the eyes ability to focus on the same level and at the same point when directed at a static object straight ahead, follow and track one that’s in motion; and coordinate when shifting the focus smoothly during changes in distance and direction.Common signs that these hiccups might be present are difficulty paying attention and concentrating for any length of time, avoiding activities like reading or playing sport and reluctance to engage in answering questions, joining in discussions or taking part in social activities. And those don’t only lead to poor performance and behaviour, but also result in a low self-image, confusion, and a feeling of alienation, Gattegno says. Correcting the DysfunctionsVision therapy uses a number of approaches to correcting, restoring, or developing the visual skills necessary for normal sight and physical action. Depending on the situation and problem involved, correction can take the form of optical devises, special glasses or prism lenses, as well as using a training programme shared between office and home. All are designed to improve the vision skills and processing of visual information.

Twilio Segment Unveils Journeys, the First Customer Journey Builder for the New, Digital Era 2021-06-11T03:27:22Z twilio-segment-unveils-journeys-the-first-customer-journey-builder-for-the-new-digital-era SYDNEY, June 11, 2021 -- Twilio Segment (NYSE:TWLO), the world’s #1 Customer Data Platform (CDP), has announced the launch of Journeys, a new product built on the Segment CDP that allows marketers to easily build sophisticated customer journeys and orchestrate personalisation at scale, through every channel, and across their entire customer experience stack. A customer journey is the entire experience a customer has while interacting with a brand, over time, and across channels. Adding the capability to design that journey on top of Segment’s best-in-class first-party data foundation is Twilio’s next step in building the leading Customer Engagement Platform. “Today’s customer journey applications are off-the-shelf products, built on legacy SaaS platforms that cannot deliver the flexibility, scale, or breadth needed to power world-class customer experiences in the digital era,” said Peter Reinhardt, CEO of Twilio Segment. “Built on Twilio Segment’s Customer Data Platform, Journeys takes a new approach that gives businesses the ability to quickly and easily build highly personalised customer journeys based on the most trustworthy and up-to-date customer data possible.” The Limitations of Current Journey Builders As the world sheltered in place during the pandemic, businesses underwent a great digital acceleration, dramatically speeding up their digital transformation roadmaps so they could serve customers online. Consumers quickly adapted to these new digital interactions, and now their expectations for personalised, relevant interactions with brands are higher than ever. The stakes could not be higher. According to Twilio Segment’s recent State of Personalization Report, 85% of businesses believe they are offering personalised experiences, but only 60% of consumers think brands are actually providing them. Failing to provide highly personalised experiences has consequences well beyond inefficient marketing spend, such as a loss in customer loyalty and market share. Part of the challenge in meeting these expectations is that companies are often hampered by ineffective customer journey building tools that are built on incomplete or inaccurate data. Without accurate, up-to-date data, brands have significant blind spots while engaging with customers, building experiences based on limited information and only on a few channels. Today’s journey builders focus on owned marketing channels over omnichannel experiences; one-way messages rather than continuous conversations; and short-term campaigns instead of long-term engagement. This not only leads to siloed workstreams and inefficient marketing spend, but it also leads to a loss of customers, who are left with poor experiences thanks to generic or inconsistent messaging and irrelevant and annoying offers. These problems are only exacerbated by the complex, growing customer experience stacks currently required today to deliver great customer experiences. Unifying all customer channels, from email to support, advertising to analytics, is crucial for companies to deliver a truly omnichannel, differentiated experience over competitors. Introducing Journeys Almost half of organisations (43%) say getting accurate customer data for personalisation is a challenge for them. Journeys solves this issue. Unlike current journey builders on the market, Journeys is built on top of Twilio Segment, meaning customer journeys are built on clean, real-time first-party data from dozens of customer touchpoints. This gives companies confidence and control over all of their customer interactions. “Twilio Segment provides companies with the best data, and we believe the best data wins,” said Reinhardt. With Journeys, Segment users can orchestrate highly sophisticated customer journeys to deliver meaningful personalisation campaigns on any channel, at scale, and across 300+ applications with just a few clicks. This delivers a consistent experience across all channels that evolves based on a customer’s actions, preferences, and feedback. The new product: Empowers marketers to deliver personalisation at scale across all channels: With Journeys, marketers can quickly and easily launch complex multi-step campaigns across any channel, including email, advertising, in-app, and SMS.Saves precious time, resources and marketing spend: Since Journeys is built on highly accurate first-party data, marketers have a clear understanding of who is most likely to convert, enabling them to optimise channel outreach accordingly.Increases customer satisfaction and retention: Journeys enables marketers to boost conversion rates, lower cart abandonment, and improve customer win-back. Its data-first approach also helps to drive customer satisfaction, retention, and lifetime value. For example, an athletic retailer could deliver highly intelligent customer engagement based on a user’s activity across all brands, devices, and channels. Powered by clean, complete, and accurate first-party data, the retailer could use the Segment CDP to target its customers across multiple channels with specific, tailored discounts or product recommendations based on data such as number of miles run. For instance, they could execute a sneaker campaign for users reaching 100 logged miles in their fitness app, delivering a custom discount via email and ads to returning customers, and product recommendations via email to new customers. They could also incorporate customer journey insights into their support centre, empowering agents to cross-sell relevant products and develop meaningful customer relationships. “With Journeys, our marketing and advertising teams were able to map out a meaningful, high impact plan for customers that is truly individualised and tailored for each one of our customers, which majorly improved our ad campaign effectiveness,” said Grayson Bagwell, Director of Business Development and E-Commerce at Rugs.com. “Journeys improved our return on ad spend and allowed us to reinvest part of our budget into other high growth initiatives. This made a huge impact on the business and helped us grow our revenue 400% year-over-year.” “Journeys makes what we thought was impossible now feel possible, removing the frustration our marketing teams previously felt with personalised outreach. As my team has learned about the product, we’ve been surprised by how quickly and easily stakeholders have been able to orchestrate advanced customer interactions with complex audiences,” said Josh Rab, Vice President of GTM Technology at Intuit. “Ease of use and confidence in our customer data is essential for a business like ours, where a rich, personalised experience is a must-have for our end-to-end customer journey.” AvailabilityJourneys is now available to all Segment Personas Advanced customers, with up to 10 active Journeys in their package at no additional cost.

RICOH Always Current Technology’s smart updates are enabled by default on compatible MFPs.

(NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced new integrations with ServiceNow, the leading digital workflow company, enabling advanced visibility, access control, and data security for optimised cloud data protection and security incident response. These enhancements allow customers to further benefit from their zero trust architectures by gaining complete control of sensitive cloud-based data and fast threat detection and response as they accelerate their secure digital transformation journey. The new offering provides native ingestion of Zscaler™’s leading cloud security threat intelligence in order to accelerate threat investigation and response workflows for cloud-first organisations. This integration simplifies operations for security teams with the ability to easily view actionable data using a single console, reducing the need to pivot across disjointed management tools for point products. With Zscaler Data Protection integrations, customers’ can improve data protection and compliance on the ServiceNow Now Platform. By allowing Zscaler to control authentication, remote and unmanaged devices can be easily restricted from accessing ServiceNow’s platform and data. Devices can only access ServiceNow through Zscaler, whereby security policies and access control to sensitive data can be enforced. “The migration of applications and data to the cloud is driving network transformation,” said Amit Sinha, president, CTO, board member at Zscaler. “Simultaneously, organisations are shifting to a hybrid workforce where work from anywhere is quickly becoming the norm, requiring a completely new approach to security, built on zero trust. Zscaler ensures that only authenticated users and secure devices can access ServiceNow, based on business policies and without putting them on the same network. By sharing threat intelligence and leveraging context based access controls, Zscaler and ServiceNow can reduce business risk, simplify compliance and improve work from anywhere user experience. By combining the power of Zscaler and ServiceNow, joint customers can improve data protection and compliance, while streamlining incident response: ● Restore Data Protection & Compliance: Businesses can improve data visibility and help prevent exfiltration by scanning designated ServiceNow instances for sensitive data and violations in order to be able to quickly understand how data is being used and who is accessing it. ● Securely enable Work From Anywhere: Risky unmanaged and BYOD devices are prevented from accessing the Now Platform and the sensitive data that resides in it, enabling a secure work-from-anywhere experience across secure managed devices only. ● Streamline Incident Response: The addition of Zscaler Threat intelligence to incident response workflows within the ServiceNow Security Incident Response Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) solution allows IT leaders to respond more quickly to emerging threats and gain better fidelity across emerging incidents. Additionally, ServiceNow can automate the addition of new malicious domains and URLs into Zscaler Internet Access to immediately contain a threat. “As modern companies race to digitise, rapid technology and data growth have made data privacy and security a board-level concern,” said Pablo Stern, SVP of IT Workflow Products at ServiceNow. “ServiceNow’s workflows create an enterprise-wide fabric that help ensure the resilience and agility of a company’s digital landscape. The Zscaler collaboration extends our workflows to help customers investigate and mitigate security issues that can disrupt business and tarnish brands.” All Zscaler integrations with ServiceNow are generally available today.

ENDS Gigamon launches ThreatINSIGHT guided-SaaS NDR to improve SOC effectiveness and reduce analyst burnout 2021-06-11T00:09:02Z gigamon-launches-threatinsight-guided-saas-ndr-to-improve-soc-effectiveness-and-reduce-analyst-burnout SYDNEY – June 11, 2021 – Gigamon, the leader in cloud visibility and analytics, today announced ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR (network detection and response), which was purpose built to improve SOC (Security Operations Center) effectiveness and reduce analyst burnout. ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR, which redefines how SaaS-based security solutions are delivered, arrives at a critical juncture in threat defence as exponential growth in infrastructure complexity, and ever-increasing cyber threat activity, is negatively impacting InfoSec team’s ability to efficiently do their jobs, ultimately contributing to high burnout rates.ThreatINSIGHT alleviates the three most common problems that continue to plague SOC analysts and incident responders. They are often working in the dark without foundational visibility to observe adversary movement, leading 69% of IT and security practitioners to cite network visibility as the top reason for SOC ineffectiveness. They continually face the distraction of burdensome tool maintenance, prompting 43% of SOC analysts to indicate that maintaining, tuning and providing updates to their security tools is their core responsibility. Finally, they are often operating alone, without expert support, which is a factor CISOs must consider when addressing why 70% of their SOC analysts report burnout due to high-pressure environments. Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT removes these burdens that otherwise prohibit teams from focusing on effectively identifying adversary activity across the MITRE ATT&CK framework. In addition, during high-pressure, active incidents, customers benefit from access to expert-level guidance from the experienced security analysts and incident responders on the Gigamon Technical Success Managers (TSM) team. “Security analysts are consistently overwhelmed, stressed, and understaffed, leaving the majority pretty much unable to anticipate, recover from, or adapt to new attacks (without reaching burnout, which is common),” wrote analyst Allie Mellen from Forrester in a recent series of blog posts. “Security tools must support security teams in doing their jobs better, from the people side, the process side, and the technology side.”[1]With Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT Guided-SaaS NDR, teams are more effective with less stress as a result of:Visibility. ThreatINSIGHT ensures SOC analysts are never in the dark by delivering guided visibility to adversary network activity, not observable by EDRs and SIEMs. Network traffic provides the essential foundation for incident response including visibility to lateral movement, command and control, and other steps along the MITRE ATT&CK framework. ThreatINSIGHT can observe and identify adversary activity on any device or network, across any type of traffic, including encrypted traffic, thereby eliminating the SOC visibility gap.Focus. ThreatINSIGHT minimises distractions by guiding security professionals to high-confidence detections crafted by the Gigamon Applied Threat Research (ATR) team. By continuously delivering QA’d and tuned advanced machine learning, behavioural analytics, and proprietary threat intelligence for true positive adversary detection, clients are not distracted with laborious false-positive tuning. Expertise. ThreatINSIGHT guides SOC analysts via product and people. The solution guides investigative workflows built by our expert responders, on top of a powerful and flexible Insight Query Language. TSMs, included as part of the service, are security analysts and incident responders themselves who provide best practices and threat knowledge to directly assist clients when they need it most.“As hybrid cloud and hybrid workforces become the new normal and as threat actors continually increase their sophistication, the job of security analysts and incident responders becomes even more complex,” said Michael Dickman, Chief Product Officer at Gigamon. “The rise in recent ransomware attacks is a strong reminder that security teams need defence-in-depth with visibility, focus, and expertise. Now, with the world's first Guided-SaaS NDR, customers no longer have to fight this battle alone, or without full visibility of their adversary. InfoSec teams now have the tools and expertise to respond with speed and confidence.”For more information on the efficiency and effectiveness of ThreatINSIGHT, read the ESG Technical Review to learn how ESG independently validated the efficacy of Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT.About GigamonGigamon helps the world’s leading organizations run fast, stay secure and innovate.
