Since the first case of COVID-19 in the United States was confirmed in the state of Washington on Jan. 21, 2020, data science teams nationwide have taken swift action to collect and analyze datasets for unique insights and trends in public health. Today, we are spotlighting a few specific efforts to track the pandemic and reduce its spread. Quick reference — Coronavirus trackers and repositories Johns Hopkins University & Medicine Coronavirus Resource Center Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering COVID-19 Data Repository COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19) Microsoft Bing Coronavirus (COVID-19) Live Map Tracker Google Coronavirus (COVID-19) Map Company spotlights Healthcare data science platform released the COVID-19 Vulnerability Index (CV19 Index) — a free, open-source tool designed to help healthcare organizations identify and protect individuals that are most vulnerable to COVID-19. The CV19 Index is available with support for the following deployment models: Open source download ClosedLoop HIPAA compliant turnkey hosting Google Cloud Platform Marketplace and AWS SageMaker hosted models for virtual private cloud deployment The CV19 Index identifies people likely to have a heightened vulnerability to severe complications from COVID-19. Because data on these cases is not readily available, the CV19 Index was developed using similar proxy events (e.g. pneumonia, influenza) and calculates vulnerability in terms of a person’s near-term risk of severe complications from respiratory infections. The CV19 Index does not predict who will become infected or identify where the virus might spread. It is only meant to identify people with a heightened risk of severe complications should they become infected. As community actions move from containment to aggressive mitigation, healthcare organizations and community health professionals can use the CV19 Index in several ways including: Identifying and targeting vulnerable individuals for outreach Preparing and sharing resources such as food delivery, virtual worship, medicine deliveries, telehealth, regular check-ins, etc. Prioritizing resources as healthcare organizations prepare for shifts in demand Coordinating efforts with other organizations and agencies “It’s going to take a community effort to stop the spread,” said Eye. “We just want to do what we can to help make that happen. We want organizations to jump in with us, to help make the CV19 Index better. If that happens, we’ll have a powerful tool to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 to society at-large.” Anodot Autonomous monitoring company Anodot launched a public service that monitors locally reported COVID-19 cases and notifies users when a particular region's numbers change significantly. "Our employees voiced concerns over the growth of the virus in their home cities around the world. We began using our own machine learning algorithms to track it, and quickly realized that lending the use of our technology to the global public is the minimum we can do to help during this very difficult time," said David Drai, CEO and Co-Founder, Anodot. "We will continue to look for other potential insights we can offer and hope the information will aid people's decisions, as so many of us are grappling with whether commuting to work, traveling, or attending large events puts ourselves and our families at risk," said Drai. Anodot is running its algorithms based on publicly available data derived from The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. "It's crucial to monitor the rate of newly reported cases and not only the absolute number to better evaluate the situation," said Ira Cohen, Chief Data Scientist and Co-Founder, Anodot. Vectorspace AI Vectorspace AI, a natural language processing and understanding (NLP/NLU) company, made available real-time COVID-19 drug repurposing datasets in collaboration with Amazon and Microsoft in connection with the United States Office of Science and Technology Policy. "One of the most immediate and impactful applications of AI is in the ability to help scientists, academics, and technologists find the right information in a sea of scientific papers to move research faster," said Dr. Oren Etzioni, Chief Executive Officer of the Allen Institute for AI. Using bioscientific research papers published around the world through the National Library of Medicine and other related data sources, Vectorspace AI generates real-time updating correlation matrix datasets. These are designed to extract context-controlled hidden relationships between genes, proteins, phytochemicals, drug compounds, and infectious diseases such as COVID-19, designed for drug repurposing (repositioning). The first dataset available includes a focus on the following approved drug compounds: Alvesco, Ampicillin, Arbidol, Azilsartan, Azithromycin, Candesartan, Clindamycin, Daraprim, Favipiravir, Fimasartan, Galidesivir, Hydroxychloroquine, Interferon α2b, Interferon β, Irbesartan, Kevzara, Lopinavir, Losartan , Mefloquine, Olmesartan, Primaquine, Pyrimethamine, Qualaquin, Remdesivir, Ribavirin, Ritonavir, Saprisartan, Telmisartan, Valsartan, and Zithromax. Currently, datasets are made available through the Vectorspace wallet-enabled API free VXV token credits located here . Datasets can be used to augment any other extant datasets or be used on their own to generate graph networks to visualize hidden relationships.

The coronavirus outbreak is leading numerous organizations on a scramble to develop plans for staff to work remotely. Companies hoping to keep employees safe and stop the spread of the disease — while maintaining regular operations — have to look beyond simply sending staffers home with a laptop. Practicing good cybersecurity hygiene to prevent exposing the business to cyberattack is as critically important in a home working environment as in the office. Infosec, a leader in cybersecurity education and security awareness training, offers our readers these seven tips for staying cyber-secure when working remotely: 1. Be safer with strong passwords. Don’t develop a false sense of security because you are comfortably snuggled up at home. Many people don’t practice the same strong password habits on their personal home devices as they do at the office. Add a strong password and two-factor authentication to your Wi-Fi and the router, plus any other personal devices. 2. Know what needs to be protected. Jot down a list of everything you don’t want to fall into the wrong hands and determine a security posture for each. Paper notebooks and folders. Company phone. Company computer. Portable hard drives. USBs. Contact lists. Customer lists. You probably have more than you think. 3. Using public Wi-Fi. Not recommended. Everybody should know the danger by now, yet 81% of recent survey respondents said they still use public Wi-Fi. If you are going to use the unsecured public network at your local coffee shop or library, think twice about exposing your company’s private information this way. 4. Ramp up your security awareness. While you are using public Wi-Fi and other unsecured networks, be warned that at the same time you might receive a tidal wave of malware-loaded COVID-19 phishing attacks. Cybercriminals are playing off people’s anxiety from the pandemic. 5. Guard your login credentials. When working remotely — especially in a public space — take care to guard your login credentials. If they are seen or shared accidentally, you’ve made tracking down illegal access very hard for the security team. 6. Be a VIP with a VPN. Many companies have a Virtual Private Network (VPN) as part of online protection packages for remote and traveling staff. A VPN provides a secure, encrypted connection that tunnels data directly to its destination. If your company doesn’t have one, talk to your boss. VPNs for home use run between $5-$12 a month. 7. Be smart and ratchet up your security outlook. Keep your family and friends from using your work computer. Install an antivirus program in your home system. Get a copy of your company’s security policy and follow it. Lock up or shred confidential documents — and don’t toss them in your home recycling bin. Don’t leave your laptop, documents or other devices in your car. Keep track of your smartphone. These common-sense steps will make you look like a security pro.

There are 15 main risk management hot spots for legal and compliance leaders spanning five categories over the next two years. This is according to Gartner, Inc. after interviewing many clients and experts and surveying tens of thousands of respondents across multiple surveys. “Hot spots reflect current trends in the business and regulatory environment that create or exacerbate the legal, compliance, and privacy risks that legal leaders have to manage,” said Stephanie Quaranta, research director in the Gartner Legal and Compliance practice. The 15 risk hot spots for legal and compliance leaders span 5 categories. They include: Category 1: Heightened regulatory, trade, and recession uncertainties complicate risk analysis Organizations today are operating in an environment of unprecedented uncertainty. “Regulatory uncertainty, geopolitical volatility, and macroeconomic uncertainty combine to make it more difficult for legal leaders to assess and manage organizational risks at the same time, meaning that fast, proactive responses to emerging risks are becoming more crucial to success,” Quaranta said. Across all industry segments, at least 60% of respondents reported an increase in the scope of relevant regulatory change in the past three years. The three hot spots include: Hot Spot 1: Trade barriers as a policy tool Hot Spot 2: Patchwork regulation in key areas Hot Spot 3: Heighten recession chatter Category 2: New technological applications cause clash of efficiency and ethics Organizations are increasingly able to create new capabilities and value through technological advancements using big data and analytics. However, growth in these technologies continues to outpace clear regulatory and ethical consensus, leaving organizations struggling to balance current value against the potential for crossing an as-yet undefined line. The hot spots include: Hot Spot 4: AI implementation without clear guidelines Hot Spot 5: Employee monitoring reducing trust Hot Spot 6: Growing consumer demands for data privacy Category 3: External change escalates complexity of compliance As organizations have increasingly adapted their business models to rely on the capabilities of third-party partners and contingent workers, the business ecosystem has become more complex. “Given that more than four-fifths (83%) of the organizations we surveyed are employing an external workforce, it is important for most legal leaders to manage the associated risks,” Quaranta said. The hot spots include: Hot Spot 7: Shifting classifications for gig workers Hot Spot 8: Increased complexity of nth-party ecosystem Hot Spot 9: Unpredictable Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement patterns Category 4:  Rising social consciousness leads to new stakeholder demands Almost nine in 10 (87%) of the employees surveyed said they expect companies to take a public position on social issues relevant to the business. But this is difficult, and the consequences of getting it wrong are steep as stakeholders, from employees to investors, feel more empowered to demand change. The hot spots include: Hot Spot 10: Rising employee activism at work Hot Spot 11: ESG at a corporate expectation Category 5: Advances in data processing heighten risk to businesses and consumers As both regulators and customers increase their attention on how organizations combine, analyze, and otherwise use information, data processing is on pace to surpass data collection as the primary source of privacy risk for organizations. Interest in data lakes among senior executives is growing rapidly, having risen almost fourfold in the past six months, judging from Gartner analysts’ call volumes. This is pressuring legal leaders to manage associated privacy risks. The hot spots include: Hot Spot 12: Increasing use of biometrics as identifiers Hot Spot 13: Rising threat of de-anonymization Hot Spot 14: Emergence of data lakes Hot Spot 15: Expanding definition of personal data “At a time when businesses are already facing so much uncertainty, and when resources for legal, compliance, and privacy functions are already stretched thinly, these risk hot spots add an additional layer of complexity for legal leaders to manage,” said Quaranta.
