FIOS1: "Will voters choose to change the NY constitution on Election Day?"

10/05/2017

Cybersecurity warriors needed to fend off hackers: View (The Journal News)

The deluge of bad news about the cyber war being fought over personally identifiable information rages as never before. The Equifax breach is just the latest example of a major corporate failure to secure millions of American consumer financial records — 143 million at last count. In addition to the exposure of Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, driver's license information and credit card numbers — everything a hacker needs to create financial fraud — the insurance losses are estimated at well over $100 million.

The Equifax hack joins the growing list of major corporate cyber break-ins that includes Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Target, Home Depot and Sony. Perhaps more alarming is that we are confronted by severe threats to our home computer systems and those of critical service providers like hospitals, utilities and government agencies, including the United States military. The Wannacry ransomware virus spread around the world in May, causing chaos in critical infrastructure facilities, such as hospitals, that are often most vulnerable to malware and cyber attacks. 

The health-care industry is embracing the digital age with electronic health care records and the digitization of other data and systems. But ransomware attacks on health-care organizations are expected to quadruple by 2020, which would make health-care the most targeted industry. 

Global ransomware damages are expected to exceed $5 billion this year, 15 times what it was two years ago. Many cybersecurity experts agree that cyber crime could cost the world $6 trillion per year in damages by 2021, double what it was in 2015.

While malware is often launched by criminal groups and nihilistic individuals around the world, it is increasingly clear that some cyber attacks are being coordinated at the nation-state level by military and shadow groups connected to government intelligence agencies. Many leading experts in military and cybersecurity circles believe that World War III will be a cyber war. Indeed, allegations of manipulation of the 2016 American presidential election has left many feeling that no system or event is safe. 

Cybersecurity threats have become big business. Spending on cybersecurity products and services increased to more than $80 billion in 2016, according to Gartner, the global research company, and is expected to exceed $1 trillion globally over the next five years. 

So how do we prepare for the future? Education. Higher education is invaluable when it does what it does best — add to the public discourse on intellectual areas critical to the future well-being of society.

Pace is designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security, and has long prepared cybersecurity professionals and helped to analyze risks and plan defenses for Westchester’s business and government sectors.

The information technology professional of today needs to be highly knowledgeable about protecting data, devices, infrastructure, apps and people. Rising demand has led to a critical shortage in the cybersecurity workforce. IDG reports that cybersecurity jobs are expected to triple with the proliferation of cyber crime, possibly reaching 3.5 million by 2021. 

Cybersecurity is a critical area for business success, and there is no greater threat to business than cyber vulnerability. Pace University is partnering with the Business Council of Westchester on a half-day conference called CyberStorm-Cybersecurity in Business: Emerging Threats & Innovative Solutions to take place Friday, Oct. 6, on Pace’s campus in Pleasantville.

The conference will feature cybersecurity leaders from industry, government and academia. Talks will focus on how we got into such a dangerous situation, the current state of the threat and how to protect homes and businesses. The conference will explore cybersecurity threats of the future and the tools and strategies that are being developed to stop them. 

The writer is dean of the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University.

Pace Performing Arts Students Collaborate with David Marshall Grant for Reimagined SNAKEBIT (Broadway World)

David Marshall Grant's 1998 hit play "Snakebit" has been reimagined thanks to a collaboration with the Bachelor of Fine Arts Acting students at the School of Performing Arts of the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences at Pace University.

"Snakebit" will be presented beginning this week, October 4-14, 2017 at Pace University, Schaeberle Theater, 41 Park Row, New York, NY, 10th Floor. For show times and tickets visit: http://snakebitpace.brownpapertickets.com.

Grant has spent several months working with Director Christopher J. Hake and the students working on changes. "In revisiting it so many years later, there seemed to be an opportunity to more fully realize the original intent of the piece," says Grant. Hanke and Grant have known each other for some time and Hanke calls the collaboration, "excellent," and adds, "We collaborate so well and it has been wonderful helping him fully realize this revision."

Of the cast and production team of student actors, Hanke admits he has been blown away. "The unexpected joy in this process has been the Pace Performing Arts actors. Of course, they rank among one of the best undergraduate BFA programs in the country, but these actors are the finest young artists I have seen and are truly ready for the professional world, and they haven't even graduated yet. I am very proud to be working with them all."

David Marshall Grant (playwright) Broadway credits include: Bent, staring with Richard Gere, and Joe Pitt in Angels in America, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award. He has appeared in over 25 movies, including "American Flyer," "The Chamber," "Air America," "Stepford Wives," and "The Devil Wears Prada." Television work includes Bobby Kennedy in "Citizen Cohn," "And The Band Played On," "Thirty-Something," and "Party Down." Grant's first play, "Snakebit" was produced off-Broadway and was nominated for a Drama Desk award and an Outer Critics Circle Award.

Christopher Hanke (director) is an American actor, director, and all around theater nerd. He recently starred in the hit one-man comedy, "Buyer & Cellar," and the play, "Perfect Arrangement," at "Primary Stages," both in NYC. Before that was Bud Frump in the Broadway revival of "How to Succeed..."

Pleasantville and Pace Join Together for Climate Smart Communities Designation

FOR QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT:

Michelle D. Land, Clinical Associate Professor, Dyson College

(914) 773-3092 or mland@pace.edu

Pleasantville, NY: If Pleasantville and Pace University have their way, the Village of Pleasantville will become one of the first fewNew York State municipalities to seek certification as a Climate Smart Community (CSC), thanks to a resolution passed by the Village’s Board of Trustees on Monday, September 25. The action was spurred by a presentation to the board last spring by Pace Environmental Policy Masters Degree Program students and faculty.

Nearly 200 communities, including 30 Westchester municipalities, have adopted the Climate Smart Communities Pledge, the first step toward certification from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Thus far, only 15 have earned the certificate. The CSC program supports municipal efforts to meet the economic, social and environmental challenges posed by climate change. The program provides local governments with a robust network to guide their climate action, and enables high-performing communities to achieve recognition for their leadership.

“Municipalities like Pleasantville should be the cornerstone of climate change resilience planning,” said Pleasantville Mayor Peter Scherer. “A statewide or national climate plan will only be meaningful if communities can assure that the special conditions of their local environment, local economy and local population are given the consideration and deference they deserve. That is why we want Pleasantville to be a local leader in the Climate Smart Communities program.”

Pace’s graduate students researched the Climate Smart Communities program, its steps to certification and other municipalities that have participated as part of a team project in a spring course.  The students pitched the idea of Pleasantville adopting the pledge to the Village’s Board of Trustees on April 24 and proposed a partnership between the University and Village. With the resolution passed to adopt the CSC Pledge, Pace’s students will work closely with Patti Dwyer, Village Administrator, municipal staff and community members to conduct a Greenhouse Gas Inventory.  They will also solicit ideas from local stakeholders to set priority actions for a Climate Action Plan with a goal of December 31, 2018 for full CSC Certification.

“Climate issues are politically and scientifically complex,” said Michelle Land, program director and Pace clinical associate professor, “Addressing it requires the hands-on work we emphasize in our Masters in Environmental Policy program, including partnerships with the community such as ours with Pleasantville; we have a lot to learn from each other.”

Nicole Virgona, a recent graduate from Pace’s environmental studies program, now a graduate Environmental Policy student, knows Pleasantville and feels invested in the village’s success. “I am inspired by Pleasantville’s demonstrated leadership through its adoption of the CSC Pledge. As a project team member, I hope to help create a Climate Action Plan representative of the Village’s unique character.”

Of the opportunity to collaborate with the Village, Pace graduate research assistant Andrew Welch said, “The engagement of diverse stakeholders is key to the Climate Smart Certification process. We look forward to working with the the whole community to improve its climate planning and response through the implementation of this program.”

The Master of Arts in Environmental Policy program is in the Dyson College Department of Environmental Studies and Science and is a component of  the Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment at Pace University (DCISE).

FIOS1: "Will voters choose to change the NY constitution on Election Day?"

09/28/2017

News12: "Pace program trains students how to be ‘cyberdefenders"

Pace University is starting a groundbreaking program to train students how to be "cyber-defenders."

The Pace students are learning how to help defend businesses around the globe. They are learning that something as innocent as a picture can be transformed into a dangerous weapon for hackers.

“I truly feel the next war we have in the future is going to be online. It’s not going to be with soldiers and guns, it's going to be online,” says Vicente Gomez, a freshman in the program.

Jonathan Hill, the dean of the program, says one of the worst attacks would be something that could affect the power grid to the point where street lights wouldn't work, air conditioning wouldn’t work in homes, and people couldn’t take money out of ATMs.

He says that the technology for this not only exists today, it’s already being deployed.

Hill says right now the protections are not in place to defend American businesses, but with the right education and a solid cybersecurity protocol, people can fight back.

Hill will be teaching business owners how to do that at a CyberStorm conference on campus next week, where the message will be that no one is immune to cybercrimes. The conference on Oct. 6 is being co-organized by the Business Council of Westchester.

News 12 has been told that graduates of the Pace program have gone on to work for a long list of government agencies, from the NSA to Homeland Security.
