Many of the most accurate, factual and deliberately comprehensive articles that William Saito has written are found in Forbes. It is there that people can learn the most insightful ideas that William Saito has about the pressing challenges, demands and issues that companies face while operating in a complex digital environment. And this includes cyberattacks and cybersecurity. In one article from Saito featured in Forbes, he even cited some of the factors that a company should consider to empower a company’s staff in addressing such challenges.
He cited in the article that right now, companies are still struggling with cybersecurity. They still haven’t gotten the right, most secure programs that can protect them from what Saito would call ransomware. There’s also evidence that the threat of cyberattack is even getting more intensified as the hackers are becoming more sophisticated. It is then important to get the right security programs that would empower the I.T. specialists in the company to do what they’re supposed to do.
In town for Interpol World 2017, William Saito, special adviser to Japan’s cabinet, talks about the Japan-EU trade deal and the third arrow in Abenomics.
One of the many ways to address such cybersecurity issue is first not to blame the victim. The I.T. personnel who are doing their best to protect the data of the company should not be ostracized. Even if the issue is already remedied, it’s still safe to say that the bad guy is still out there, preparing for another attack. Saito also added that the usual idea of disconnecting from the internet would also not be a solution. It is harder to protect a computer without an internet. It’s harder to update its anti-malware software and other tools to battle the online threats once it becomes connected to the web, or when a USB drive is connected to it.
Saito also shared that disabling the WIFI or banning the workforce to use any internet connection in the company is also not the most intuitive way to address the problem. The best way so far is to make sure that there’s an automatic system in the database that alerts the company’s I.T. if there’s a suspicious digital activity in the company’s network.

Johanan Rand is responsible for revolutionizing the treatment of various health conditions through his integrative approach. He specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation, a medical field incorporated in medicine in 1947. The relatively new field of medicine focuses on whole-body treatment processes.

Primarily, Johanan Rand focuses on treating age-related issues which include but not limited to stress, depression, erectile dysfunction, anxiety, and mood swings. He can suppress the conditions by combining hormonal therapies with physical exercise and dietary options. Among the most notable treatment methods used by Johanan Rand is ‘blood work,’ a test done to show the current health state of a patient. For instance, it detects the minerals and vitamins levels in the body, and the results are used to develop an individual plan for supplemental nutrition. Thus, patients are guaranteed a good state of health.
Hormonal therapies do not only help prevent age-related issues but also in countering chronic diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. This is more so through using bioidentical hormones produced by humans, and that balance the hormonal level in our bodies. Through hormonal therapies, Johanan Rand has managed to contain symptoms better than the conventional methods of using synthetic hormones on patients. Consequently, most of his patients have been able to live a more fulfilling life.
