Cyber Security and Ransomware in Financial Markets

Toni Ahnert, Michael Brolley, David Cimon & Ryan Riordan
Financial markets face the constant threat of cyber attacks. We develop a principal-agent model of cyber-attacking with fee-paying clients who delegate security decisions to financial platforms. We derive testable implications about clients’ vulnerability to cyber attacks and about the fees charged. We characterize which cyber attacks actors choose. We find that ransomware attacks are more successful than traditional attacks and that platforms underinvest in security when security is unobservable. Regulating security investment (e.g., minimum security...

Prevalence, causes, and consequences of moral distress in healthcare providers caring for people living with dementia in long-term care during a pandemic

Lynn Haslam-Larmer, Alisa Grigorovich, Hannah Quirt, Katia Engel, Steven Stewart, Kevin Rodrigues, Pia Kontos, Arlene Astell, Josephine McMurray, AnneMarie Levy, Kathleen S Bingham, Alastair J Flint, Colleen Maxwell & Andrea Iaboni
Healthcare providers caring for people living with dementia may experience moral distress when faced with ethically challenging situations, such as the inability to provide care that is consistent with their values. The COVID-19 pandemic produced conditions in long-term care homes (hereafter referred to as ‘care homes’) that could potentially contribute to moral distress. We conducted an online survey to examine changes in moral distress during the pandemic, its contributing factors and correlates, and its impact...

Reproductive maturity in boreal trees, Northwest Territories, Canada

Raquel Alfaro Sánchez, Jill F Johnstone, Steve G Cumming, Nicola Day, Michelle C Mack, Xanthe J Walker & Jennifer L Baltzer
In boreal North America, much of the landscape is covered by fire-adapted forests dominated by serotinous conifers. For these forests, reductions in fire return interval could limit reproductive success, owing to insufficient time for stands to reach reproductive maturity i.e., to initiate cone production. Improved understanding of the drivers of reproductive maturity can provide important information about the capacity of these forests to self-replace following fire. Here, we assessed the drivers of reproductive maturity in...

Philanthropic donor perspectives about providing harm reduction services for people living with HIV/AIDS in a hospital setting

Katherine Rudzinski, Soo Chan Carusone, Andre Ceranto, Francisco Ibáñez-Carrasco, Lisa McDonald, Dean Valentine, Adrian Guta, Elaine Hyshka, William O’Leary, Andra Cardow & Carol Strike
Abstract Background Hospital-based harm reduction services are needed to reduce drug-related harms, facilitate retention in care, and increase medical treatment adherence for people who use drugs. Philanthropic donor support plays a key role in delivering such innovative services which might fall outside current funding streams. However, little is known about how the principles, implementation, and practice of harm reduction services, which are often highly stigmatized, may impact donor behaviours. We explored this issue within Casey...

Data from: A first draft of the core fungal microbiome of Schedonorus arundinaceus with and without its fungal mutualist Epichloë coenophiala

Jenna Dale & Jonathan Newman
Tall fescue (Schedonorus arundinaceus) is a cool-season grass that is commonly infected with the fungal endophyte Epichloë coenophiala. Although the relationship between tall fescue and E. coenophiala is well-studied, less is known about its broader fungal communities. We used next-generation sequencing of the ITS2 region to describe the complete foliar fungal microbiomes in a set of field-grown tall fescue plants over two years, and whether these fungal communities were affected by the presence of Epichloë....
