Your ISO certification becomes toast after December 15, 2003!

Your ISO certification becomes toast after December 15, 2003!

(PRWEB) September 18, 2003


Ottawa, Ontario -(PRWEB) September 16, 2003. What’s the difference? The old standard took a procedural approach (“here are the rules, follow them”). The new standard emphasizes managing a series of process to meet a particular outcome. Because of the options and choices available with the new standard, it appears to cause more chaos then the old standard, where it was easier to be told specifically what to do. The old standard was also very light on talking about an integrated system – individual processes were treated in isolation. Under the new standard there is a need to look at the overall processes.

If you are considering ISO? Most real life companies have one specific goal, and that is to make money, either through offering a product or service. Your specialty is what starts the customers interest, but after that, it is the consistency and quality of your product or service, that will sustain your revenue growth. Quality comes from understanding your work processes, documenting them, and following them. In reality, any sound operation already engaged in good business practices, will already have this thought process. For them, the new ISO merely formalizes through documentation, what is already known.

Taking care of customer satisfaction is a philosophy emphasized throughout the new ISO – but isn’t that what you’re already doing?

Intrinsic Magic supplies a ready to roll quality management system package (quality manual, full set of system level procedures, and a list of required process documents) in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001: 2000. A full support service is available also with the package. You can have an up and running ISO 9001: 2000 tailored quality management system in as short a time as 6 months!

Dave Williams and Fellow Astronauts Thank Neptec for Performance on Endeavour Mission

Dave Williams and Fellow Astronauts Thank Neptec for Performance on Endeavour Mission

Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) October 30, 2007

OTTAWA, Canada – October 30, 2007 – Yesterday, the crew of the STS-118 Endeavour Shuttle mission visited Neptec Design Group, a leader in intelligent 3D vision systems for military, manufacturing and aerospace applications. The crew, which includes Canadian Space Agency astronaut Dave Williams, provided Neptec with an overview of the mission and discussed the success of Neptec’s Laser Camera System (LCS).

The LCS, a laser-based 3D scanner mandatory on every shuttle mission, was used on the August STS-118 mission to examine an area of damage on the outer thermal protective system and provide NASA with the information needed to ensure that the Shuttle and its crew would safely return to Earth at the end of the mission.

“I am very proud that Canadian technology is playing such a critical role on the international space program,” said Williams. “Neptec’s LCS did exactly what was asked of it and helped to ensure we all returned home safe and sound.”

The LCS became a critical component on the Endeavor’s mission when damage to the underside of the shuttle’s hull was discovered. During takeoff, insulating foam from the external fuel tanks broke away and struck areas of the Endeavour’s thermal protective system. Neptec’s LCS was used to recreate exact replicas of the damaged thermal tile that could be carefully examined and tested in simulation environments. NASA determined the area, which was found to be 3.5 inches in length and 2.0 inches wide, would not cause any risk to the Shuttle or its crew when it returned through the Earth’s atmosphere.

“It’s always a great thrill when a shuttle crew does us the honour of coming for a visit after a flight. We are privileged at Neptec to be able to see the concrete results of the hard work that everyone here does every day,” said Dr. Iain Christie, President of Neptec. “The LCS played a crucial role on the STS-118 mission, and this debrief is important to ensure the next generation of Neptec systems integrate the ideas from the end-users – in this instance, NASA astronauts in orbit.”

AtlantiCare Selects Third Brigade Host Intrusion Prevention System to Further Enhance Security of Data, Applications and Systems

AtlantiCare Selects Third Brigade Host Intrusion Prevention System to Further Enhance Security of Data, Applications and Systems

Ottawa, ON, and Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 22, 2007

Third Brigade , a security software company that specializes in host intrusion prevention systems, today announced the selection of its software by AtlantiCare , a regional, not-for-profit healthcare organization based in southeastern New Jersey with more than 4,400 employees and 60 locations.

Healthcare organizations rely heavily on critical e-health and enterprise systems that are increasingly accessible via the Internet. As a result, it’s become more challenging and important to protect the availability and integrity of these systems, and the confidentially of sensitive patient and medical data. Host intrusion prevention is a security best-practice and complements the company’s defense-in-depth strategy.

“We recognize the importance of staying ahead of the latest threats, and implementing security best practices to protect our critical e-health systems, and to ensure patient safety and confidentiality.” said Daniel Morreale, CIO of AtlantiCare. “Third Brigade’s host intrusion prevention system reduces vulnerabilities by shielding us from known and zero-hour threats. And by acting as a virtual patch, it shields hard-to-patch and unpatchable systems, and allows us to test and deploy vendor-supplied patches more thoroughly and efficiently.”

Third Brigade Deep Security brings proven network security approaches, including firewall and intrusion detection and prevention, down to individual computers and devices. It shields vulnerabilities in Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems, as well as enterprise and web applications common to healthcare providers.

“Third Brigade helps AtlantiCare comply with tough industry regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley, and Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA),” said Wael Mohamed, President and CEO of Third Brigade. “Healthcare leaders like AtlantiCare are being proactive in ensuring their EHR and other medical and administrative systems are properly secured from cyber attacks.”

About AtlantiCare

AtlantiCare is a regional healthcare organization based in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, whose more than 4,460 employees serve the healthcare needs of the community at more than 60 locations. It includes AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC), the AtlantiCare Foundation, AtlantiCare Health Plans, AtlantiCare Behavioral Health and AtlantiCare Health Services. ARMC earned J.D. Power and Associates Distinguished Hospital designation for the third consecutive year for its commitment to providing “An Outstanding Inpatient Experience,” in July, 2006. ARMC became the 105th hospital in the nation to attain status as a Magnet™ designated hospital in March of 2004.

About Third Brigade

Third Brigade ( specializes in providing host intrusion defense systems to organizations that need to detect and prevent attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in mission critical systems. Third Brigade Deep Security allows businesses to apply comprehensive security profiles to hosts that protect against known and zero-day attacks using deep packet inspection. It helps ensure compliance and the 24-7 availability of critical systems, provides a virtual patch for software vulnerabilities, and allows organizations to deliver Internet-based services with greater security and confidence. Unlike other host intrusion detection and prevention systems, Third Brigade Deep Security provides broader, faster and simpler protection. Third Brigade. That’s control.
