Lower the Tuition for IT Security Visibility
Securing the IT environment in today’s college or university is no task for the faint of heart. With a user population of digital natives, a school’s IT services are often a high-risk zone where state-of-the art learning and research meets the global threat laboratory. Reducing risk and maintaining compliance requires centralized security visibility and the tools to identify and remove threats quickly and efficiently.
That’s exactly the challenge the IT services team at Marquette University faced recently—and solved—with the AlienVault Unified Security Management™ platform.
Today, the Marquette IT team enjoys:
*Full visibility into network, server and user activities
*Dramatically faster incident response
*Greater ability to manage attacks and prove compliance
*20% cost reduction in their security monitoring program
During this valuable webinar, you'll discover exactly how Marquette did it—with limited expense and IT staff —and what they learned along the way. Please join us

Near infrared spectrometers have long been the PAT tools of choice for pharmaceutical and industrial scientists seeking to gain physical and chemical information from their samples. More recently, the development of fast and inexpensive miniature NIR instruments has greatly facilitated real-time in-line monitoring of multiple unit operations within a process. NIR can be used as a supervisory tool for multiple critical quality attributes of a drug product. Deviations from the acceptable ranges can be acted on in real-time based upon closed-loop control strategies.
This webinar discusses how miniaturised spectrometers facilitate testing of different control schemes with the goal of enabling real-time feedback control of continuous manufacturing processes.
> Chris Pederson, Product Applications Engineer, Viavi Solutions
Chris will present the principle of operation of the linear variable filter-based miniature NIR spectrometers, i.e., the MicroNIR Spectrometers developed by Viavi Solutions. He will also share key performance attributes of these ultra-compact MicroNIR products, and their applications in the pharmaceutical industry.

Drug target validation is a major obstacle to drug development leading to high rates of late-stage failure because the pivotal study in drug development - the randomised trial – occurs at the end of the development pipeline.
Genetic studies using the principle of Mendelian randomisation reproduce key elements of a randomised trial ensuring target validation can take place earlier in development.
A second major obstacle in drug development is the understanding of individual differences in drug efficacy and safety due to naturally occurring variation in gene encoding proteins involved in drug disposition – a key component of stratified medicines research.
The Illumina Drug Development Array is designed to address issues and enable genomic discoveries to be used in drug development.
The array combines the genome-wide tag SNP content of the Illumina Human Core BeadChip (240,000 highly-informative genome-wide tag SNPs and over 20,000 high-value markers) with a novel 200,000 custom marker set designed to support studies of drug target validation and treatment response. The array is relevant to full range of human drug targets and medical disorders.
The webinar will:
- Introduce the concept of Mendelian randomisation studies for target selection and validation in drug development
- Discuss the concept of the ‘druggability’ and the ‘druggable genome’
- Describe development of the content of the Illumina drug development array based on an updated set of genes encoding druggable targets and the proteins involved in in drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME)
- Prof. Aroon Hingorani, Chair of Genetic Epidemiology, Institute of Cardiovascular Science, University College London

In an increasingly globalised world it is more important than ever before that a strong legal framework exists to ensure safety, security and accountability. But in many areas of the world the rule of law is weak and it is difficult to uphold human rights, security and international law. International organisations such as the UN have an important role to play in ensuring that individuals, corporations and the state enjoy the protection of, and are held to account by, a robust legal framework. Corporations too are an important player on the world stage and the benefits they can bring to some of the world’s most disadvantaged areas include fostering the development of the rule of law as well as bringing economic growth.
The discussions aim to shed light on the difficulties that public international law throws up and the opportunities for reform. The panellists’ expertise covers a broad range of areas including dispute resolution in the aftermath of conflict, treaty negotiations, the law of treaties and State responsibility.
Roundtable delegates include:
• Sophie Lamb, International Arbitration Partner at Debevoise & Plimpton
• Thomas Sprange, International Arbitration Partner at King & Spalding
• Wendy Miles, International Arbitration Partner at Wilmer Hale
• Lorraine Brennan, MD and International Arbitration & mediation expert at JAMS International
