I am a journalist writing an article for a large uk-based publication that will look at the vulnerability of everyday objects that are now being built with technological and online capabilities; otherwise known as the 'internet of things'. The key to my piece is assessing what the most vulnerable internet of things technologies are in terms of exposing users to fraud (like identify theft, monitoring of their behaviour, accessing bank accounts where devices are linked to use-based spending, monitoring the geo-location of victims to make frauds more effective – say by email deception, understanding their consumer behaviour – again to make them targets for fraud attacks and scams, etc.). Would anyone have any knowledge on this topic and willing to speak with me?+5 Other Responses
Credit Card Fraud
My company was taken for a large amount through an account take over. Our merchant services will not cover any loss, though we have heard other merchant services would have. I need to know if we have any recourse to recoup the stolen money. Looking for consultancy on this project.+6 Other Responses
Regenerative Medicine Risk Assessment
i am writing on behalf of a consulting firm that conducts expert interviews in support of industry-wide studies for many of the world's fortune 1000 companies. We are an authorized zintro partner.
For a current intriguing study on global stakeholder reactions and risk assessment in regenerative medicine, we are seeking to speak with experts from various groups who could help us understand their perspective on regenerative medicine from an ethical, religious, legislative or social standpoint. We are interested in their opinion around associated challenges in r&d and commercialization of regenerative medicine and future trend and perception of such technology.
We are targeting to speak with experts from one or more of the following groups related to regenerative medicine:
1. Large media groups (e.G. Bbc)
2. Patient groups (e.G. London regenerative medicine network)
3. Payor associations / financial support groups / ngos (e.G. Cancer financial assistance coalition, chronic disease fund, patient access network foundation, etc.)
4. Religious groups & associations (e.G. Muslim jewish forum, religious education group, st. John neumann roman catholic church, etc.)
5. Government organizations (e.G. National health service in the uk, departments of health)
please note that we are only seeking to speak with experts from either the us or the eu5 markets (france, germany, uk, italy and spain), at this stage. We are only interested in personal opinions and are not interested in any confidential information. Our practice is to keep your identity anonymous, as well as that of our client.
We are scheduling 45-60 minute discussions with experts ideally this week (before june 14th), or early next, and are happy to provide a flexible usd 250 compensation for each interview. Please note that we are handling the standard zintro fee separately, hence the expert is not involved in paying this.
If you kindly let me know your contact details (email, phone/skype), i could provide more specifics on the study and standard process.
We would welcome any referrals to other relevant experts as well.
