Cyber Threats and Cyber Security: Are You Prepared?

Your research institution has invested heavily in physical site security, but how safe are your computers and networks? In today’s digitally connected world, cyber threats and “hactivism” have become serious concerns deserving serious attention. Electronic information housed at large organizations like the Department of Defense, Target, Home Depot, Anthem, eBay, P.F. Chang’s, Twitter, Sony, and most recently Premera Blue Cross have been breached by hackers. Now is the time to educate yourself on the threats, as well as the means to prevent them.

Only a Few Spots Remain Available for NABR’s Next Webinar!

Space is extremely limited for NABR's next webinar, 2014 USDA Inspection Numbers: Will History Repeat Itself? scheduled for Tuesday, January 13. Fewer than 12 spots remain so if you have not registered yet, please do ASAP!

Inspections were down 7%, the number of citations down 21%, direct noncompliant items down 76% and repeat noncompliant items were down 68%. While the Top Ten cited sections still are topped by IACUC functions and veterinary care issues, the number and nature of citations provide some interesting insights into the inspection process.

• Review the Top Ten categories of citations
• Provide an overview and analysis of the nature of those citations
• Provide practical tips on how to avoid those citations

We’re Just Days Away from NABR’s Next Webinar!

Have you registered yet for NABR's next webinar? NABR's next webinar, "Should You Update Your Inspection Management Process?" is scheduled for Tuesday, November 18 and space is limited.

Animal rights groups have been using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gather information on institutional correspondence on self-reported issues with NIH’s Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW). These groups also are requesting that USDA re-inspect institutions and issue citations for the items that were self-reported to OLAW.

This must-see presentation will review the current use of information self-reported to OLAW and explain how to best manage the inspection process to deal with the possibility of re-inspections. We will also discuss what steps should to be taken to effectively file an appeal in light of the new USDA appeal process.

Re-inspections and USDA citations have resulted from these requests from animal rights groups and given the finite time limit for filing an appeal, it is best to be ready. Don't miss your opportunity to learn how to prepare for such issues. Join us live from NABR’s DC Headquarters for "Should You Update Your Inspection Management Process?" on Tuesday, November 18.

It's time to register for NABR's next webinar! Join us on Tuesday, November 18 for our latest exclusive presentation, Should You Update Your Inspection Management Process?

Never has it been more important to have in place an effective process for managing and documenting inspections. Animal rights groups have been using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain institutional correspondence with NIH’s Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW). Such correspondence often includes issues that were self-reported to OLAW, yet not cited during a previous USDA inspection. One group, in particular, has been requesting that the USDA re-inspect institutions and issue citations for the items that were self-reported to OLAW.

These requests have resulted in USDA citations for issues that were previously deemed to have been appropriately addressed by OLAW. In addition, recent changes to the USDA appeal process set a finite time limit for filing an appeal, which requires that your institutions have in place an efficient process for responding to USDA inspection reports if you believe you were incorrectly cited.

This webinar will review the current use of information self-reported to OLAW, make suggestions for managing the inspection process to deal with the possibility of re-inspections, and discuss what steps should to be taken to effectively file an appeal in light of the new USDA appeal process.
