One Day HIPAA and the Business Associate Seminar

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 22 maggio 2018

Savannah, United States – June 5th, 2018 This one-day seminar will be addressing how a Business Associate needs to comply with HIPAA and when it applies.The primary goal is to ensure everyone is well educated on what is myth and what is reality with this law, as there is so much misleading information regarding the do’s and don’ts with HIPAA. I want to add clarity for Business Associates, and also help businesses comply. Not only is this necessary due to the requirements of HIPAA but also to satisfy many customers who require much more these days than just signing a Business Associate Agreement.Times have changed, and unfortunately, many businesses are losing clients or are unable to get new clients due to problems with their compliance program or lack of a compliance program. I will explain real life scenarios as well as best practices and excellent resources you can use to get your house in order before it’s too late.It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule and any other applicable updates for 2018.I will speak on specific experiences from over 17 years of working as an outsourced compliance auditor and expert witness on multiple HIPAA cases, and will thoroughly explain how patients are now able to get cash remedies for wrongful disclosures of private health information and how this ALSO applies to Business Associates.
More importantly, I will show you how to limit those risks by simply taking proactive steps and utilizing best practices.I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this very enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights and HIPAA auditors.In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued as well as being audited (these two items tend to go hand in hand)

I nuovi modelli di business e le tecnologie emergenti fanno crescere il mercato FinTech europeo

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 19 maggio 2018

La ricerca di Frost & Sullivan intitolata European FinTech Market Outlook, 2018 delinea i trend per il 2017 e 2018 nel settore Fintech europeo che è in rapida evoluzione. La crescita può essere attribuita a un ecosistema costituito da start-up innovative e tradizionali, istituzioni finanziarie favorevoli alla digitalizzazione, investitori che identificano le opportunità di crescita e regolatori proattivi. L’integrazione di tecnologie emergenti, come Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), big data, analytics e Internet of Things (IoT), consente alle aziende di soddisfare le richieste dei consumatori digitali, tra cui la facilità di utilizzo, l’accesso in mobilità e la personalizzazione. L’integrazione verticale dei servizi finanziari è soggetta a rigide misure di regolamentazione e di conformità; i partecipanti al mercato sono infatti particolarmente attenti alla sicurezza e alla riservatezza dei dati e si avvalgono anche di queste tecnologie avanzate per aumentare i livelli di sicurezza. Lo studio di Frost & Sullivan analizza i trend tecnologi in Europa e il loro impatto sull’industria. Esamina inoltre i trend nei segmenti BankTech, InsurTech, RegTech, PayTech e WealthTech e prevede opportunità di crescita in ciascuno di essi.”Per il futuro possiamo prevedere che le aziende FinTech si concentreranno sempre più e parteciperanno alla ricerca e alla dimostrazione “proof of concept” in tecnologie come blockchain e quantum computing” afferma Deepali Sathe, Senior Industry Analyst, ICT, Frost & Sullivan. “Nel frattempo, gli sviluppi nell’ambito di piattaforme AI e ML creeranno nuove allettanti opportunità.”L’afflusso di start-up e soluzioni innovative trasforma la catena del valore in segmenti come PayTech e InsurTech, i tradizionali partecipanti al mercato riconoscono quindi la necessità di essere agili. Le frequenti modifiche e aggiornamenti delle norme e dei requisiti di conformità, nonché gli eventi come Brexit, evidenziano il bisogno di flessibilità.Poiché nel 2018 le aziende faticano a rispettare le scadenze e a soddisfare i requisiti del regolamento generale sulla protezione dei dati (GDPR) e della direttiva sui servizi di pagamento rivista (PSD2), aumenta la domanda di RegTech, per il quale è prevista una crescita di oltre 500 milioni di dollari nel 2018.”I nuovi modelli di business e la crescita di soluzioni incentrate sul cliente creeranno opportunità per offrire nuovi servizi o X-as-a-Service (XaaS)” osserva Sathe. “Questi modelli automatizzano i processi e si integrano nell’infrastruttura IT esistente per promuovere la crescita globale. Inoltre, molti segmenti di mercato che sono scarsamente o per niente serviti, come le piccole e medie imprese (PMI), gli espatriati e le persone con pochi antecedenti in materia di prestiti, hanno iniziato ad offrire ulteriori opportunità di business.”Le aziende stanno esaminando sempre più le opzioni a disposizione per la realizzazione di partnership e investimenti strategici al fine di garantire un time-to-market più veloce per soddisfare le richieste dei consumatori che desiderano un accesso 24 ore al giorno, 7 giorni su 7 e permettere un approccio omnicale. Le API e l’economia condivisa avranno un impatto in tutto il settore, in quanto il nuovo ecosistema incoraggia un approccio collaborativo.European Fintech Market Outlook, 2018 fa parte del programma globale ICT Growth Partnership Service di Frost & Sullivan.

La School of Management del Politecnico di Milano tra le migliori scuole di business del mondo

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 15 maggio 2018

Milano. L’offerta formativa della School of Management del Politecnico di Milano rivolta agli executive compare ormai stabilmente tra le migliori del mondo. Il ranking 2018 del Financial Times relativo all’Executive education, pubblicato oggi, vede infatti ancora una volta in classifica la SoM, che conferma la sua vocazione fortemente internazionale e innovativa. Sono due i ranking stilati dal prestigioso quotidiano inglese. Il primo riguarda i programmi ‘custom’, cioè l’offerta formativa tagliata ‘su misura’ sulle specifiche esigenze delle aziende clienti ed erogata a manager, quadri e impiegati ad alto potenziale delle imprese stesse: la School of Management del Politecnico di Milano vi compare per l’ottavo anno consecutivo, in una “rosa” di 90 Scuole in tutto il mondo. Il secondo invece è relativo ai programmi ‘open’, cioè quelli rivolti a manager e professionisti che scelgono autonomamente il proprio percorso formativo e di crescita, costruendolo in base all’offerta Management Academy di MIP. Entrata in classifica per la prima volta lo scorso anno, la SoM compare anche nel ranking 2018 tra le migliori del mondo, cioè 80 business school selezionate. Ogni anno il Financial Times redige questi ranking utilizzando numerosi parametri, molti dei quali basati sul giudizio stesso degli executive che hanno partecipato ai corsi, oltre che dei CEO e dei Direttori HR delle aziende che hanno fruito della formazione. La collaborazione con le imprese nella progettazione delle lezioni e la capacità di supportarle anche a conclusione del percorso formativo, la preparazione del corpo docente, l’aula e la faculty fortemente internazionali, la partnership con altre scuole di business di alto livello, i metodi di insegnamento innovativi, il ritorno economico in termini di avanzamento di carriera e livello di stipendio: questi alcune delle caratteristiche più apprezzate della School of Management, che le hanno permesso nuovamente di distinguersi. “La concretezza legata alla conoscenza anche delle procedure industriali, la stretta collaborazione con le imprese, l’attenzione ai temi dell’imprenditorialità sono alcuni degli aspetti che ci caratterizzano a livello internazionale e che ci hanno fatto guadagnare la stima e l’apprezzamento sia delle aziende che dei manager – dichiarano Andrea Sianesi, Dean di MIP Politecnico di Milano, e Alessandro Perego, Direttore del Dipartimento di Ingegneria Gestionale -. A questo crediamo si debba aggiungere la scelta, effettuata ormai alcuni anni fa, di permettere la fruizione dei corsi a distanza secondo il modello dello smart learning, così da consentire una migliore gestione del tempo, sentita da tutti come un problema cruciale”.“Essere in graduatoria anche con l’offerta ‘open’ dimostra inoltre come i nostri programmi Executive siano allineati alle aspettative del mercato, sempre alla ricerca di elementi formativi capaci di aprire la mente sulle nuove potenzialità date dall’evoluzione delle tecnologie e dei modelli di business. La nostra offerta ‘open’- concludono Sianesi e Perego – si concentra infatti sulla frontiera tecnologica e manageriale, arricchita di esperienza concreta e pratica”.

London drops out of top ten most expensive business travel locations in the world

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 aprile 2018

Geneva is once again the most expensive location in Europe for business travellers according to research by global mobility experts, ECA International (ECA). On average, the total cost of a standard business trip to Geneva is GBP 554 a day, compared to GBP 448 in London.“Swiss cities once again dominate the most expensive places for business trips in Europe, with five different locations in the top ten,” said Simon Franklin, Daily Rates Manager at ECA International. “Switzerland has always been an expensive nation for business travel, and this year is no different as the Swiss franc has performed very strongly.”
Updated annually, ECA’s Daily Rates report reviews the average costs for hotel accommodation – which makes up the bulk of any daily allowance – as well as meals, drinks, laundry, taxi transport and daily essentials. This information is used by companies to determine daily expense allowances for staff undertaking international business travel.
London meanwhile has seen a drop in the rankings, as have all the UK locations included in the list. The UK capital has dropped out of the top ten most expensive locations in the world for business travel, overtaken by Monaco, Basel and Paris this year. London is now also in sixth place in Europe, down from third the year before.
New York is the only location in the world more expensive for business travel than Geneva. A business trip to New York costs GBP 611 a day on average.Franklin said: “The high demand for hotels in New York is reflected in the premium rate that rooms are currently charged at; averaging GBP 392 per night at a 4 hotel. The high cost of hotels and transport, as well as mandatory 15-20% tipping policies during meals out, contribute to the US city being the most expensive in the world for business travel.”
The price of hotels in London and Paris is much higher than anywhere in Europe, with the exception of some Swiss locations. A room in London costs on average GBP 334 per night in a 4* hotel, making it the 11th most expensive in the world, while Paris costs GBP 364, making it the 5th most expensive in the world.

The Business Beyond Borders

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 9 aprile 2018

During the International Air and Space Fair, in Santiago, Chile (3rd – 7th April), the first BBB event in South America focused on small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and clusters in the aerospace, defence and security sectors. Over the course of FIDAE, BBB facilitated over 350 matchmaking meetings booked between more than 250 companies representing 37 countries.
As highlighted by the Head of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Chile, Ambassador Stella Zervoudaki, it also marked the first time that “the EU has a united B2B meeting space [at FIDAE], proving the importance the EU gives to the aerospace industry”. The EU Ambassador has also met with the Chilean Undersecretary of Telecommunications, Pamela Gidi, at the BBB stand in the EU Pavilion. BBB is a European Commission-funded initiative which helps EU businesses to expand regionally and globally. By facilitating a series of Business-to-Business (B2B), Cluster-to-Cluster (C2C), and Business-to-Cluster (B2C) matchmaking events at the top international trade fairs around the world, the aim of the initiative is for new international business partnerships to be formed and deals to be brokered. Besides the BBB one-to-one matchmaking sessions at the trade fair’s European Pavilion, SMEs and clusters also had the opportunity to participate in technical sessions and workshops on EU space programmes; research and innovation international cooperation; IP protection; business and technology transfer in South America. Other BBB-supported activities included informal networking sessions co-organised by the SME Instrument’s Oversea Trade Fairs Programme, and the BBB Social Media Competition, which sought to help participating companies increase their visibility online.
Davide Venturelli of Archon Techonologies, Italy said the BBB matchmaking sessions provided added-value for his company at FIDAE: “We see potential partnership opportunities with other companies, typically medium-sized ones, which regard Archon as an opportunity to differentiate and expand their position; and for us, it’s an opportunity to solidify our presence in Chile and Latin America, which starts to be significant. SMEs seeking to grow should definitely try the BBB matchmaking sessions.” The next two BBB matchmaking events will take place on 15th-17th May at CeBIT Australia, and on 26th-29th June at AMB Iran; and will be aimed at companies operating in the business technology and metal-cutting technology industries, respectively. To find out more about how European businesses can benefit from this opportunity to grow across borders with a complete package of professional support, visit the Business Beyond Borders website at http://www.businessbeyondborders.info

Come fare business negli Emirati Arabi Uniti (EAU)

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 febbraio 2018

Gli Emirati Arabi Uniti (EAU) è uno dei Paesi con il più alto tasso di attrattività commerciale. Ogni anno un numero sempre maggiore di imprese italiane ed estere intraprendono spedizioni alla conquista degli EAU, attratte dalle molteplici opportunità che offre il mercato emiratino. Spesso però sottovalutano le possibili insidie o le peculiarità di un Paese che, per storia, cultura ed organizzazione politica è molto diverso dal nostro. Proprio con l’obiettivo di aiutare gli imprenditori che decidono di intraprendere questa avventura, Thomas Paoletti – titolare e Managing Partner dello Studio Paoletti Legal Consultant con sede a Dubai, dove si occupa, assieme a un team di professionisti, di assistere le imprese italiane in materia di investimenti all’estero e in fase di internazionalizzazione in Medio Oriente – ha scritto ‘Dubai Affaire’, una guida per fare Business nel ‘Paese dei balocchi’, acquistabile su Mnamon (https://www.mnamon.it/ebook/societa-ed-economia/dubai-affaire/).Il libro offre la possibilità di conoscere meglio gli EAU dal punto di vista commerciale, legislativo, sociale e culturale per sfruttare al meglio tutte le opportunità e limitare i rischi d’impresa, oltre ad offrire delle solide basi teoriche per chiunque voglia affrontare il processo di internazionalizzazione e indicazioni pratiche per muovere i primi con decisione passi negli EAU.
Cosa vuol dire internazionalizzazione? Perché farlo e, soprattutto, come farlo? “Dubai Affaire” offre le basi teoriche per costruire il proprio progetto di internazionalizzazione attraverso 7 passi, suggerendo quali elementi considerare e quali criteri seguire. In particolare, descrive le diverse modalità di ingresso per un’attività d’impresa nel paese (mainland e free zones) e i benefici, non solo fiscali. Un focus specifico è dedicato alle joint venture, forma di insediamento versatile e largamente impiegata dagli italiani negli EAU. Il decalogo finale ha poi la funzione di organizzare sotto forma di consigli ed errori tutto quello che l’autore ha appreso in oltre 15 anni di rapporti professionali con gli EAU.

Si conferma e cresce il successo italiano del business delle case vacanza

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 febbraio 2018

Continua a riscuotere sempre più successo il settore delle case vacanza in Italia tanto che il business, nel corso del 2017, ha rilevato una crescita sia di offerta sia di domanda. CaseVacanza.it (https://www.casevacanza.it), sito leader in Italia per il settore, ha infatti calcolato che durante tutto il 2017 la domanda di affitti turistici nel nostro Paese ha incrementato il suo volume del 10% rispetto all’anno precedente. E parallelamente crescono anche i proprietari che scelgono questa forma di investimento per i loro immobili: +8% rispetto al 2016.
«Le case vacanza sono passate dall’essere un fenomeno di nicchia a un vero e proprio segmento nell’offerta turistica del nostro Paese – racconta Francesco Lorenzani, Amministratore Delegato di Feries, società cui fa capo CaseVacanza.it. – Il successo che questa tipologia di ospitalità sta riscuotendo è evidente non solo dall’incremento costante di domanda e offerta, ma anche dall’intervento dello Stato nel regolamentare un fenomeno in costante crescita attraverso leggi ad hoc. Solo sul nostro portale abbiamo stimato che il giro d’affari generato dalle case vacanza nel 2018 sarà di 115 milioni di euro, il 15% in più rispetto all’anno scorso».
Secondo l’analisi del portale, affittare una casa nel Bel Paese è una scelta che sempre più attira anche un pubblico di stranieri, la cui domanda risulta in aumento, al pari di quella dei nostri connazionali, del 10%. Un soggiorno medio in casa vacanza nel 2017 è durato poco meno di 9 giorni con una spesa media di 630 euro. Lo studio ha rilevato un aumento del prezzo medio pari al 5%, sia a seguito dell’adeguamento alla cedolare secca, ora in vigore anche per i soggiorni brevi, sia per un consistente aumento della domanda, fattori che hanno portato i proprietari a rivedere le loro tariffe al rialzo.Dall’analisi sui proprietari emerge come per gli italiani la casa vacanza sia ancora un affare…di famiglia: meno del 10% si affida infatti ad agenzie o a persone di fiducia per amministrare l’immobile. L’età media di chi sceglie di mettere a reddito una proprietà con la formula dell’affitto breve è di 51 anni, con 1 proprietario su 4 che ha meno di 40 anni e una leggera predominanza del genere maschile nel gestire il business: in Italia il 55% sono infatti uomini e il 45% donne.Dal punto di vista della distribuzione dell’offerta sono tre le regioni che la fanno da padrone: Sicilia, Puglia e Toscana insieme raccolgono il 45% di tutti gli annunci presenti sul portale. La domanda si distribuisce su tutto il territorio nazionale, con le tre province di Lecce, Rimini e Grosseto che nel corso del 2017 sono state le più richieste in assoluto.

Winners of Sustainable Business Awards Indonesia 2017

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 9 dicembre 2017

WinnersJakarta The winners of this year’s Sustainable Business Awards (SBA) Indonesia were announced last Monday in the presence of H.E. Bambang Brodjonegoro, Minister of National Development and Planning and attendees from Indonesian and international corporations, government officials and media at the Grand Hyatt Jakarta.“The Awards are a combination of leadership, ethics and sustainability that have transparency, reliability, accuracy, and consistency at the heart of the assessment”, explained Shinta Kamdani, the President of IBCSD and Vice Chair Woman of KADIN. She added, “leadership is more than just having a vision, it is about how one communicates and influences people beyond the normal parameters of their daily lives and work to get them committed and on board”. Ethics are highly subjective because they come from both leadership and culture, however sustainability is more easily measured.
Marina Tusin, President Director of PwC Consulting Indonesia, said “It has been pleasantly heartwarming to witness various sustainability initiatives implemented in Indonesian companies given the environmental and social challenges we face today. It is our responsibility to applaud the progress made by companies moving towards sustainable businesses.
