BNI got me out of my comfort zone. It pushed me ahead with resources that helped my business to grow. In two years I’ve made more than a thousand contacts around the world, started a book about entrepreneurship and studies in health science, been interviewed by TV, News and Magazines, and even managed to use my new networking skills to save myself in a life and death situation. My business has grown from two clients to more than forty and continues to grow. I don’t have enough words to thank BNI.”
— Omar Cisneros | e-learning | Peru
Joining BNI was a life-changing decision. Learning how to market my business through weekly presentations and feature presentations has opened my eyes to the possibilities of networking. More than anything, I have enjoyed building a network of professionals that I am confident referring business to, as each has made the same commitment I have to our code of ethic. I am now a go-to person, and it feeds my soul to send business to fellow members. A third of my own customers are a direct result of BNI.”

Обеспечение безопасности в AWS начинается уже на уровне базовой инфраструктуры. Состояние инфраструктуры, созданной специально для облачных вычислений и отвечающей наиболее строгим мировым требованиям безопасности, круглосуточно отслеживается, чтобы гарантировать конфиденциальность, целостность и доступность данных. Все данные, проходящие через глобальную сеть AWS, которая связывает наши центры обработки данных и регионы, автоматически шифруются перед отправкой на физическом уровне. Вы получаете самую безопасную глобальную инфраструктуру, сохраняя полный контроль над своими данными. Вы можете свободно шифровать и перемещать данные, а также управлять их хранением.
AWS обеспечивает наивысшую доступность сети среди всех поставщиков облачных услуг. Каждый регион полностью изолирован и состоит из нескольких зон доступности, представляющих собой полностью изолированные разделы нашей инфраструктуры. Чтобы лучше изолировать проблемы и получить высокую доступность, вы можете разделить приложения между множеством зон доступности в одном регионе. Кроме того, плоскость контроля и Консоль управления AWS распределяются между регионами и включают региональные адреса API, которые предназначены для безопасной работы в течение не менее 24 часов при условии изолирования от функций глобальной плоскости контроля, если клиентам не нужен доступ к региону или его адресам API через внешние сети во время изоляции.
Глобальная инфраструктура AWS создана для того, чтобы гарантировать стабильную и производительную работу ваших решений. Использование регионов AWS позволяет снизить задержки и потери пакетов, а также обеспечивает эффективную работу сети. Это возможно благодаря полностью избыточной сетевой магистрали с оптоволоконным подключением 100 Гбит/с Ethernet, что также обеспечивает передачу многих терабитов данных между регионами. Локальные зоны AWS, AWS Wavelength и наши поставщики телекоммуникационных услуг позволяют использовать различные сервисы и разворачивать приложения на платформе AWS ближе к конечным пользователям и устройствам с подключением 5G, чтобы обеспечить эффективную работу приложений, которые требуют задержек не больше нескольких миллисекунд. Так вы можете быстро расширять объем ресурсов по мере необходимости, развертывая сотни и даже тысячи серверов за считаные минуты.
AWS предоставляет самую масштабную инфраструктуру во всем мире, которая постоянно увеличивается. При развертывании приложений и управлении рабочими нагрузками в облаке вы можете выбрать технологическую инфраструктуру, которая расположена ближе к вашим конечным пользователям. Также можно создавать решения с большими рабочими нагрузками, так как облачная инфраструктура обеспечивает наилучшую поддержку для широчайшего набора приложений, даже для требующих самой высокой пропускной способности и минимальной задержки. Для распространения данных можно использовать сервис AWS Ground Station, который использует системы спутниковой связи, расположенные вблизи инфраструктуры регионов AWS.
Глобальная инфраструктура AWS позволяет компаниям поддерживать невероятную гибкость и пользоваться возможностями теоретически бесконечной масштабируемости облака. Раньше клиентам приходилось использовать больше ресурсов, чтобы обеспечить необходимую производительность во время пиковых нагрузок. Сейчас они могут мгновенно увеличить или уменьшить их количество, что позволяет снизить затраты и повысить эффективность решений, которые они предлагают своим пользователям. Компании получают возможность быстро расширять объем ресурсов по мере необходимости, развертывая сотни и даже тысячи серверов за считаные минуты.
Независимо от выбора местоположения и методов развертывания решений, глобальная инфраструктура AWS предоставляет единую сеть, панель управления, API и сервисы AWS. Если вам необходимо обеспечить работу приложений во всем мире, вы можете выбрать нужные регионы AWS или зоны доступности. Также можно использовать AWS Local Zones или AWS Wavelength, чтобы запустить приложения, требующие подключения с задержкой не более нескольких миллисекунд для мобильных устройств и конечных пользователей. Или вы можете выбрать AWS Outposts, чтобы запустить приложения локально.
Specific medication safety issues are well known to cause harmful and fatal errors in patients despite knowledge of repeated occurrence and warnings. These deadly events have the following common characteristics (1):
- They are recurring, likely to happen to another patient if not addressed
- They are identifiable, easily recognized, clearly defined and not attributable to other possible causes
- They are avoidable, by appropriate practices, measures and organizational barriers
Preventing these deadly events is possible by the implementation of risk-reduction strategies that reduce or eliminate the possibility of errors, make errors visible, and minimize their consequences (2). The primary goal is to redesign the medication management process to make it harder for errors to reach the patient. The fact that such deadly adverse events can be prevented by using specific measures and organizational checks and balances has led numerous facilities to call them “never events.” In this expression, “never event” is a clear call-to-action, rather than an expectation of perfect performance or an attempt to blame if such an event happens. For this call-to-action, the International Medication Safety Network (IMSN) has identified four risk-reduction strategies, herein called the Global Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices, to inspire and mobilize widespread, international adoption of consensus-based best practices for specific medication safety issues that continue to lead to harmful and deadly medication errors.
The first four IMSN Global Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices are:
- Global Medication Safety Best Practice 1
Remove potassium concentrate injection from drug storage areas on all inpatient nursing units/wards
- Global Medication Safety Best Practice 2
Prepare and dispense vinca alkaloids in a minibag, never in a syringe
- Global Medication Safety Best Practice 3
Prevent inadvertent daily dosing of oral methotrexate for non-oncologic conditions
- Global Medication Safety Best Practice 4
Prevent errors related to improper preparation of 2-component vaccines
Focusing on these four high-alert medications—potassium concentrate injection, vinca alkaloids, oral methotrexate used in non-oncologic conditions, and 2-component vaccines—is emblematic of the changes in systems and practices that should be undertaken as a priority around the world. High-alert medications bear a heighted risk of causing patient harm when used in error.
While Best Practices 1 and 2 target the acute care setting, serious adverse events with potassium concentrate injection and vinca alkaloids have occurred in other settings, such as ambulatory practices and ambulatory procedure areas. Best Practice 3, associated with oral methotrexate, applies to all settings, including long-term care and home care.
These Global Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices have been reviewed and endorsed by experts from the International Medication Safety Network, an association of medication safety organizations, pharmacovigilance centers, regulatory agencies and medication safety experts. They have already been successfully adopted by numerous organizations (3). For example, in the United States, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has documented a steady progression between 2014 and 2017 of implementation of the Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals associated with two of the four targeted high-alert medications, vinca alkaloids and oral methotrexate.
Risk-Reduction Strategies for Preventing Deadly Medication Errors
Selecting the best error-reduction strategy is not easy (4). As illustrated below, risk-reduction strategies tend to focus on system design, which are often most effective, and/or human factors principles, which are less effective that system design strategies (4-7) .
- High-leverage strategies that focus on the system and ‘design out’ hazards are most effective because they can eliminate the risk of errors and associated harm. They do not rely heavily on individual human attention and vigilance. Such strategies include forcing functions, barriers and fail-safes, constraints, and automation and computerization. These strategies may involve complex implementation plans because they often require system redesign.
- Medium-leverage strategies do not eliminate hazards but reduce the likelihood of errors or minimize harm. They are relatively easy to implement but may need periodic updating and reinforcement to maintain knowledge and the currency of the process or product. These strategies are highly dependent on the behavior of people using the system. They include standardization; redundancies (e.g., independent double checks); reminders and checklists; warnings, alerts, and alarms; and patient counselling.
- Low-leverage strategies are often easy and quick to implement but need constant updating and reinforcement to maintain knowledge and currency. They aim to improve human performance and are more effective when combined with other medium- or highleverage strategies. Low-leverage strategies include rules, policies, procedures, guidelines, protocols, education and training, and information documents. Suggestions to “be more vigilant” have little value in reducing the risk of errors.

What You Need to Know about Impact Investing
Investors around the world are making impact investments to unleash the power of capital for good. Continue reading to learn about the core characteristics of impact investing, who is making impact investments, the results these investments can achieve, and more. A version of this primer, answering many of the most frequently asked questions about impact investing, is available for download as well. Share it with a friend or on social media.
What is impact investing?
impact investments im·pact in·vest·ments NOUN: Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending on investors’ strategic goals.
The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education.
Elements of impact investing
The practice of impact investing is further defined by the following elements.
Note: On April 3, 2019, the GIIN published the Core Characteristics of Impact Investing, which complement this definition and aim to provide even further clarity about how to approach impact investing. View these four tenets that establish baseline expectations for impact investing, here >
INTENTIONALITY An investor’s intention to have a positive social or environmental impact through investments is essential to impact investing.
INVESTMENT WITH RETURN EXPECTATIONS Impact investments are expected to generate a financial return on capital or, at minimum, a return of capital.
RANGE OF RETURN EXPECTATIONS AND ASSET CLASSES Impact investments target financial returns that range from below market (sometimes called concessionary) to risk-adjusted market rate, and can be made across asset classes, including but not limited to cash equivalents, fixed income, venture capital, and private equity.
IMPACT MEASUREMENT A hallmark of impact investing is the commitment of the investor to measure and report the social and environmental performance and progress of underlying investments, ensuring transparency and accountability while informing the practice of impact investing and building the field.
Investors’ approaches to impact measurement will vary based on their objectives and capacities, and the choice of what to measure usually reflects investor goals and, consequently, investor intention. In general, components of impact measurement best practices for impact investing include:
— Establishing and stating social and environmental objectives to relevant stakeholders
— Setting performance metrics/targets related to these objectives using standardized metrics wherever possible
— Monitoring and managing the performance of investees against these targets
— Reporting on social and environmental performance to relevant stakeholders
Why impact investing?
Impact investing challenges the long-held views that social and environmental issues should be addressed only by philanthropic donations, and that market investments should focus exclusively on achieving financial returns.
The impact investing market offers diverse and viable opportunities for investors to advance social and environmental solutions through investments that also produce financial returns.
Many types of investors are entering the growing impact investing market. Here are a few common investor motivations:
- Banks, pension funds, financial advisors, and wealth managers can PROVIDE CLIENT INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES to both individuals and institutions with an interest in general or specific social and/or environmental causes.
- Institutional and family foundations can LEVERAGE SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER ASSETS to advance their core social and/or environmental goals, while maintaining or growing their overall endowment.
- Government investors and development finance institutions can PROVIDE PROOF OF FINANCIAL VIABILITY for private-sector investors while targeting specific social and environmental goals.
Who is making impact investments?
Impact investment has attracted a wide variety of investors, both individual and institutional.
- Fund Managers
- Development finance institutions
- Diversified financial institutions/banks
- Private foundations
- Pension funds and insurance companies
- Family Offices
- Individual investors
- Religious institutions
GIIN Investors’ Council
The GIIN Investors’ Council, a leadership group for active large-scale impact investors, are among the leading institutional impact investors globally.
How do impact investments perform financially?
Impact investors have diverse financial return expectations. Some intentionally invest for below-market-rate returns, in line with their strategic objectives. Others pursue market-competitive and market-beating returns, sometimes required by fiduciary responsibility. Most investors surveyed in the GIIN’s 2020 Annual Impact Investor Survey pursue competitive, market-rate returns.
Respondents also report that portfolio performance overwhelmingly meets or exceeds investor expectations for both social and environmental impact and financial return, in investments spanning emerging markets, developed markets, and the market as a whole.
Although very few investors report significant risk events in their impact investing portfolios, business model execution and management is by far the most often cited contributor to risk.
A comprehensive review of available research to date on the financial returns of impact investments are available in the GIIN’s report, GIIN Perspectives: Evidence on the Financial Performance of Impact Investments. The report evaluates over a dozen studies—produced by a wide range of organizations—on the financial performance of investments in three common asset classes in impact investing: private equity, private debt, and real assets, as well as individual investor portfolios allocated across asset classes.
More data on financial returns of impact investments are available in the 2015 Introducing the Impact Investing Benchmark study, which looks at financial performance of private equity and venture capital impact investments, as well as the second report in the financial performance series, published in May 2017, The Financial Performance of Real Assets Impact Investments. Both of the reports were produced in partnership with the global investment advisory firm Cambridge Associates.
