70 million were affected by cyber crime during the Target breach this holiday season—that’s about a quarter of the U.S. population. On April 3, Pace hosts a symposium to address the top cybersecurity threats and unveil groundbreaking research on skimmer scams.
They say crime doesn’t pay, but cybercrime like ATM skimming empties our bank accounts by more than a billion dollars each year. On Thursday, April 3, Pace University and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) will host Cybercrime in the World Today 2014, the second annual symposium and panel discussion to address cybercrime threats and trends, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the Schimmel Theatre on the NYC Campus.
The term “cybercrime” often conjures up the image of a rogue hacker, hiding away behind a computer screen, attempting to crack the digital code that protects the Fort Knox of databases. But, the truth is, we expose ourselves to the hazards of cybercrime each time we open our wallets. This year’s symposium will unveil groundbreaking skimmer research by Seidenberg program chair and lecturer Darren Hayes, DPS, in the wake of sophisticated data security threat, including the recent Target breach.
Panelists and speakers include:
- Vincent Tophoff, Senior Technical Manager, International Federation of Accountants;
- Charles F. Gilgen, Supervisory Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation;
- Bernadette Gleason, North America eCrime Laboratory Manager at Citi; and
- Robert A. Zandoli, Senior VP, Global Chief Information Security Officer at AIG.
Associate Dean and Director of Special Programs and Projects at the Seidenberg School Jonathan Hill, DPS, will moderate, and VP of Strategic Initiatives at Pace Robert GM Keating and Executive District Attorney and Chief of the Investigation Division David Szuchman will deliver remarks.
Join several hundred business and law enforcement professionals, academics, students, and members of the public to hear more about skimmer fraud.
