Michael Coppola Featured in Article on How to Comply with AA and 2FA Requirements in Criminal Justice Field

NEW PORT COST, CA, USA, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michael Coppola, a top internet security expert, was recently featured in article highlighting how organizations that maintain criminal justice information can comply with the latest advanced authentication (AA) and two-factor authentication (2FA) standards.

The recent article is the latest in a blog series on how managers of criminal justice data can protect their information online. This particular article calls attention to AA and 2FA. AA is a system that uses something a person knows and something he or she has to ensure the security of information. Meanwhile, 2FA is a system that requires two forms of ID to access information, according to Coppola.

In the article, Coppola explains that AA is required to access criminal justice information in a couple of situations. First, if users’ laptops’ or mobile devices’ applications/software are able to access criminal justice data, then the software requires AA. Second, if criminal justice data reside in laptops or mobile devices, these devices require AA as well as full-disk encryption.

Coppola also explains in the article the various 2FA options available to mangers of criminal justice data. For instance, users can have one-time passcodes sent as text messages or through email. Another option involves having external USB devices generate codes for users. In some cases, the device being utilized will produce a code or number for every time it is used.

According to Michael Coppola, individuals who manage criminal justice information should carefully evaluate their 2FA options to determine which one would work best for their unique situations. For instance, those who rely on external USB devices should be prepared to replace the devices’ batteries over time. In addition, a user who relies on a third party to handle their 2FA should be prepared to cover the related service costs. Either way, transactions must occur and codes must be produced for users to comply with today’s 2FA requirements in the criminal justice field.

Taurai Mudamburi aka Adhala Wegonyeti embreces blockchain technology

"Ndaiti, and I believe in love" prove that driving is not his job, music is a big deal for him that is why for so many, Adhala Wegonyeti music rings true. "

HARARE, METROPOLITAN PROVINCE, ZIMBABWE, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Taurai Mudamburi commonly known as "ADHALA WEGONYETI" is one of the Zimbabwean musicians who has embraced blockchain-based music app Zeptagram. The platform allows artists and music labels to give fans access to music royalty opportunities.

Mudamburi who was born and bred in Gutu, Masvingo province Zimbabwe and currently based in Capetown, South Africa. As for now Adhala Wegonyeti has six singles and two videos. He is currently a commercial truck driver. “I started driving local routes, then moved on to the cross border trucks in South Africa where I am based. I wrote six of my other songs back in my days on the road, none of which went anywhere, and all of them mostly love songs. I was also not registered to any collecting agency,” said Mudamburi in an interview.

Listening to his music, you will not quickly realize that he was the one behind the big wheels. Mudamburi (Adhala wegonyeti) is not far from becoming one of the finest artists. Songs like " Ndaiti, and I believe in love " prove that driving is not his job, music is a big deal for him that is why for so many, Adhala wegonyeti music rings true.

“I’ve always loved singing Afro Jazz music,” said Mudamburi “I’m just so grateful to TelosZim for this opportunity. It’s been an amazing journey, so far and I’m grateful for all the support the fans and family have given me and my music.”

Before he joined Zeptagram, Mudamburi said that he was not benefitting from his music. Networking is the lifeblood of the music industry. Mudamburi is now registered with STIM which will help him in collecting and distributing royalties on an individual basis. That means I can benefit from any platform, or radio stations playing my music. I am selling art; I need to be able to foster good relationships with the people working around me. I am taking my chance as the great escape to showcase on an international festival, global collaboration and bigger Network, crowdfunding.

I got to know about Zeptagram through one of my fans, Faith Mukudu, who connected me to the Teloszim team. TelosZim is a blockchain marketing solution for startups and regenerative systems.

“I was happy to be connected with Zeptagram, which is based in Sweden, a blockchain based trading platform where music ip-rights owners can tokenize their assets”" added Mudamburi

Zeptagram offers composers & IP owners a fair and transparent platform where they can easily and quickly monetize existing songs. Create a new marketplace where fans, rights buyers, and brands can partner with artists on a song-by-song basis.

Speaking to Godknows from TelosZim he said, through TelosZim we are going to see more artists bracing the Technology across Africa. Artists are using TelosZim as a tool to connect with the global Network. “We are creating strong Network opportunities for independent and established artists, we will see more culture exchange, free marketing, collaboration, and international touring among artists. Zeptagram, decentralized application, is powered by the Telos-blockchain Network, a crowdfunding platform where you can raise funds in exchange for royalty rights,” said Godknows.

Once the community grows and if you have followers you can invite them and give them a share of your intellectual property. What this means is artists will be able to share their music with their supporters, in this way, they will be able to connect with their Fans directly, for example, the artists can give their fans ( investors) 30 percent of a period, and the artists get 70 percent let's say over a period of 10 years.

Before you can publish on a web, your song or music needs to have an international identification number like ISWC. You need to do your KYC, this is where you do your identity verification. It is important you have to do KYC as it's fundraising. If you want to upload your music, the Web is there for artists listing music and to the fans Zeptagram apps available on Google Play Store, and Apple Store. Let us move towards a more inclusive future that fosters rather than exploits the artists.

Why Vegan Claims Must Be Audited to be Certified

BeVeg International vegan certification firm requires audits up to global food safety standards.

BeVeg International vegan certification firm requires audits up to global food safety standards.

BeVeg Vegan Certification: globally accredited vegan trademark

BeVeg Vegan Certification: globally accredited vegan trademark

Vegan claims without physical audits lack integrity, as you cannot hold the supply chain and manufacturing processes accountable with just a paperwork review.

Vegan Certification standards with compulsory audits hold businesses accountable to a higher standard of food safety and cleanliness, and unify vegan claim expectations.”

— Carissa Kranz, Esq., BeVeg Founder & CEO

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vegan claims without audits are wishy washy and lack integrity. There is simply no way to hold the supply chain and factory manufacturing processes accountable to vegan ideals with just a paperwork review process. Audits are needed to ensure vegan claim integrity and supply chain accountability. It ensures proper chain of custody, training, and traceability controls are in place to keep the vegan claims honest.

Auditing the supply chain, ingredients, storage, preparation, purchasing controls, equipment, hygiene, and educating staff in all roles associated with these stages ensures food is safe for animal allergen sufferers and untainted for vegans (and other vegetarian, faith-based related diets which avoid animal products). Auditing also reduces the risk of animal contamination, which is the cause of many zoonotic diseases and product recalls. Auditing moves the needle for animal lovers who wish to affect the supply chain and keep the industry accountable to conscious compassionate consumerism.

“It’s not just about the final BeVeg certified vegan finished product. It’s about keeping the entire supply chain accountable and re-sourcing ingredients as necessary to keep and put pressure on those lower on the supply chain to also consider certification for cruelty-free efforts. Much of the problem is innocent ignorance in the general population of allergies, vegans and even food safety. It is not just common sense, it is not taught in schools,” says Heather Landex, BeVeg Chief Compliance Advisor & Food Safety Auditor.

Auditing keeps businesses honest. It ensures businesses care and maintain a commitment to vegan standards. It has policies and procedures in place to ensure they cannot cheat. It forces them to become educated on what vegan is so the concept is respected, just like kosher, gluten-free, and non-gmo.

“Unfortunately, the nature of the industry causes high staff turnover on the factory level. That means standards slip with a change of staff or a weakness in vegan training standards. The lack of awareness means there is also a low demand for guarantees regarding contamination. That is why standards must be in place and penned into operating procedures,” says Carissa Kranz, BeVeg CEO, attorney founder and vegan from birth. “A vegan trademark means nothing without accredited standards.”

“BeVeg has a global awareness training program for auditors and factories. This is essential to ensure education and respect at the factory or facility level. Let’s face it: most facilities are shared and there is plenty of cross-contamination. All auditors know this. The consumer is very much unaware of what we see during our audits,” says Landex. “That is why vegan certification cannot be considered real unless there is a facility audit that requires vegan education and vegan controls in place as standard protocol.”

The BeVeg vegan standard requires traceability controls, food defense, and separation of vegan products from animal products during the packaging, mixing, un-packaging, storage, and production to ensure no animal contamination or residue. “This is not just about being cruelty-free, this is about food safety, which is mainstream. The world needs to care, especially during and after a pandemic,” says attorney Kranz.

Clear vegan labelling on products and clear designation of vegan product storage, equipment, utensils with specific protocols surrounding PPE (protective clothing: gloves, aprons etc), procedures (such use of color-coded chopping boards), excellent communication (from internal audits to staff on floor to supervisors), understanding of training by staff are all standards that must be checked and assessed in an audit.

“While an audit is a snap-shot, there are tell-tale signs when an element of the system is not working or broken. Audits also lift standards as it motivates a “have to” rather than “should do” attitude, says Landex.

"Vegan Certification standards with compulsory audits hold businesses accountable to a higher standard of food safety and cleanliness, and unify vegan claim expectations," says attorney Kranz. "The bottom line: vegan claims demand respect when quality management systems are forced to pen vegan awareness and controls into their other accredited and audited procedures."

In the end, it’s all about consumer demand. As the consumer gets educated on how vegan is not respected in the supply chain, Kranz hopes the supply chain will become accountable. "That’s their end user and they do not want to lose brand trust or loyalty as the consumer gets a glimpse into what’s really happening behind closed doors,” says attorney Kranz.

BeVeg International is an ISO 17065 accredited vegan standard that was accredited by the National Accreditation Center as a Conformity Assessment Program drafted in accordance with ISO 17067. The BeVeg vegan standard is being adopted by global auditing bodies who are already carrying out other food safety and quality management audits. All auditors must be trained and considered competent on the BeVeg vegan technical standard. If you have a vegan product/service you wish to get officially certified vegan, you can apply at www.BeVeg.com and an auditor or global certification body will be assigned to your file.

“Aal Haroun” producer Hosny Mahmoud

GIZA, DOKKI, EGYPT, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Al Haroun" producer: I seek to present meaningful art that helps restore Egypt's soft powers

The young producer, Hosni Mahmoud, revealed the details of his movie "Al Haroun", which is featuring a group of movie stars and artists, pointing out that the film is supposed to be his second movie, as there is another film that was postponed after the freezing of contracts and preparations due to the Corona pandemic.

Producer Hosni Mahmoud and his company, Moment Production for Artistic Production, had begun preparations for his previous film, "Prominent Member", by the author Mustafa Hamdi, directed by Hassan Al-Sayed. The work was affected several days before filming by the Corona pandemic, which led to a complete stoppage and non-completion of the work.

Mahmoud said, “A prominent member” is a new and powerful movie, and its scenes are supposed to be filmed in Egypt and some European countries for what the film requires, which made filming impossible in light of the current Corona crisis. He insisted that the film is still pending implementation and will be resumed as soon as the right factors are in place.

Mahmoud added, in statements to " Al-Youm Al-Sabaa", that his foray into the field of cinematic production came from his love for the cinema and Egypt as well, as he hopes that the works produced by him may contribute, even a little, to reviving the art sector, improving the conditions of its workers, animating Egypt's soft power and dragging Arab viewers back to the Egyptian Art.

The young producer emphasized that despite the current crises of the art sector, he decided to move forward and continue his attempt to participate and contribute to reviving the situation inside Egypt, pinpointing his keenness to present a new and special work that attracts the admiration of all viewers inside and outside Egypt, pointing out that the current period is too difficult for the production companies, "But we will strive non-stop."

Mahmoud indicated that he decided to take a step in cinematic production 3 years ago, but he suffered from some drawbacks due to the lack of sufficient experience in the industry, and that he was waiting for the appropriate timing and the unique idea that he is producing, until it was settled that the first film he will produce would be a group work starring many brilliant names and great artists. Subsequently, it was time to choose the appropriate scenario, which he found in the movie "The Haroun" written by Ahmed Anwar and Mahmoud Jamaica. Director Moataz Hussam, who is a very promising figure in the world of directing was also featured.

Mahmoud confirmed the signing of the official contracts with all the artists participating in the work "Al Haroun", and that the film is in the final preparations stage, revealing that the shooting will start within the next few days, with the possibility of resuming the previous film "A prominent member" at any moment after coordination with the director, Hassan El-Sayed, within days.

The movie "Al Haroun" is produced by Hosni Mahmoud and his company, Moment Production, written by Ahmed Anwar, and Mahmoud Jamaica, and directed by Moataz Hussam. The movie events revolve around suspense and excitement in an innovative way. The chambers of the work are directed by Muhammad Kamal as the general supervisor of the production, while Mahmoud El Shazly, Edward Nabil and Bahir El Shafei are art directors and production managers.

“Aal Haroun” Movie – hosny mahmoud

GIZA, DOKKI, EGYPT, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jordanian artist, Munther Rayahneh, continues to shoot scenes of his movie "Al Haroun", written by Ahmed Anwar, through which he returns to the Egyptian cinema. He will be standing in front of the cameras of director Moataz Hosam, and co-starring Abeer Sabry, Ihab Fahmy, Muhammad Ezz, Hajer Al-Sharnoubi, Amir Salah al-Din, and Hamdi Heikal. Until now, no deadline has been set for the film screening.

"The script and the story are written in a different way, and revolve around suspense and excitement rising from the idea of treachery among humans, through the emergence of gangs and disagreements that arise between a group of antiquities dealers." Munther said, in exclusive statements to "Al-Masry Al-Youm"

Regarding his character in the film, Munther said: "I embody a different character, an engineer in evil, a different story that I loved very much, a strange character, action and suspense, an action that does not need prior training because it is a mental action so physical strength is not required."

Regarding his relationship with the work team, he said: “I did not care whether the director of the work was going through his first professional experiences or not, and Moataz Hussam is pretty experienced. In the end, he occupies me in the way of his thinking and the extent of his knowledge and awareness, and whether it will be an addition to my favor or not, that is the decisive factor to me. I do not see things in that way, I am working with a director for the first time and so am I with the producer, but it was the story that pushed me to sign the contract”.

Artificial Intelligence – Is It Just a Load of Hot AIr?

Fraud chief investigates if AI in the language industry is driving digital transformation or still in the stone age

Companies on the digital transformation journey will find the powerful algorithms in Guildhawk Aided machine translation solution extremely helpful”

— David Clarke, Head of Multilingual Due Diligence Services, Guildhawk

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — From the factory floor to the C-suite, over the last year, the subject of Artificial Intelligence for Digital transformation (AI for DX) has seemed completely inescapable along with the global response to the COVID 19 pandemic that is. The language and technology sector is certainly no exception to the AI digital transformation trend, with new AI platforms, products and all-encompassing “solutions” popping up and promising to totally change the game. It seems AI is the great saviour of the modern business – the answer to all of the current market’s needs in terms of cost efficiencies, time savings, and everyone’s New Year’s resolution to “work smarter”.

But how good is AI in the translation industry? Can translation software really drive digital transformation, especially in those industries very much stapled to the paper rich analogue world?

Former police fraud squad chief and Guildhawk director of Integrity Services David Clarke did some investing and found that, if you scratch beneath the surface, you don’t need to be an expert to see there’s often not much substance to what is being offered. The “game-changing” AI platform turns out to be a futuristic interface plastered on top of a traditional service; the AI’s “efficiencies” actually come from linguists being paid a pittance for higher-volume, lower-quality work, and so on.

However, he also found lots of clues and evidence of new software technology that is changing the rules of the translation game and being used to help companies in a range of industry sectors to transform and best of all, win new business deals.

Guildhawk is a privately held, woman owned technology and language business established in 2001 by entrepreneur Jurga Zilinskiene MBE and has become a world leader in the sector. The company pioneered Guidlhawk Aided an AI powered machine translation tool that produces exceptional quality results. The software was released to customers during the COVID-19 lockdown.
