MarketWatch: "Donald Trump Jr.’s email scandal is a lesson for every American worker"

MarketWatch: "Donald Trump Jr.’s email scandal is a lesson for every American worker"

Would you like the world to know your private thoughts? Write them in an email.

Donald Trump Jr. released a chain of emails on Tuesday revealing his plans to meet a Russian lawyer last June with potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton, who was running against his father in the U.S. presidential election. “If it’s what you say, I love it,” Trump Jr. wrote. He tweeted the email chain after The New York Times said it had seen the emails and contacted the U.S. president’s son for comment ahead of its own story. The email chain with publicist Rob Goldstone stated the Russian government had details that would incriminate Clinton.

This is the latest revelation concerning President Trump’s campaign and the role the Russian government may have played in last year’s presidential election, but it’s also another timely reminder that emails are anything but private. They can be shared, hacked, captured in a screen grab on your smartphone or simply shown to a third party. While companies keep the contents of emails private and aggregate user data anonymously for advertising purposes, we should all be careful what we put in our emails.

But you don’t need to be a public figure to have your emails exposed, especially if they are written on a work email. “The painful lesson is nothing communicated online is really private,” says Jonathan Bernstein, president of public relations consultancy Bernstein Crisis Management. The easiest and, often, most common way for private emails to go viral: The recipient takes a screen-grab and posts them online. “It can be forced into the open by legal disclosure. A trusted contact one day can be a disgruntled employee or former lover the next.”

The U.S. Constitution protects individuals against abuses by the government, says Darren Hayes, assistant professor at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, but there’s not a lot of protection of data collected on individuals. Most U.S. privacy regulation is based on self-regulation, he says, where companies dictate their own policies on handling employee and customer privacy. In Europe, there are stricter government rules about collecting and using personal data. “We are sometimes at the mercy of IT department and the retention policy for their email server.”

Politico: "Charters move closer to new teacher-certification rules, worrying education schools"

. . . Peter McDermott, the chair of Pace’s School of Education, dismissed the new rules as a matter of “convenience” rather than practice for charter teachers, and one that could exacerbate the problem of the city’s least experienced teachers being placed in the poorest schools.

The Hill's Pundits Blog: "President Trump: Cutting financial aid won’t Make America Great Again"

The Hill's Pundits Blog: "President Trump: Cutting financial aid won’t Make America Great Again"

"Despite a strengthening national economy, President Donald J. Trump’s just-released budget proposal paints a bleak picture for anyone aspiring to earn a college degree, build a successful career, and realize the American Dream," writes Stephen J. Friedman, president of Pace University.

"Not only does it propose a staggering $150 billion in federal cuts to financial aid programs, practically obliterating programs that have made college access possible for hundreds of millions of young people from middle and lower income families.

"The number and scope of education programs affected is startling and the impact students, prospective students, and the schools themselves will feel if these cuts are adopted is devastating.

• Online courses for project management certification: Many of those who have full-time jobs as project managers also pursue certification. The Project Management Institute currently serves as the primary global provider of these credentials.

The most well-known PMI certification is the Project Management Professional, or PMP, says Brian A. Weiss, vice president of practitioner career development at PMI. Earning a certification is a requirement for certain jobs and can lead to higher salaries, Weiss says.

PMI offers online exam prep courses, particularly for the Certified Associate in Project Management certification, as do some universities. For example, Pace University in New York has a PMP exam certification prep course that costs about $1,800 and takes a few months to complete.

Monster: "It's Time to Fortify your Staffing Firm's Cybersecurity"

Monster: "It's Time to Fortify your Staffing Firm's Cybersecurity"

As a staffing firm executive, all of your energies are focused on matching clients with great talent. But then the unnerving news headlines catch your eye: ransomware attacks like May’s WannaCry and June’s Petya hit thousands of organizations, with direct and indirect costs often reaching six or seven figures per company.

Unfortunately, most businesses, regardless of industry, are hit by one sort of cyberattack or another. Not surprisingly, the threat has increased demand for cybersecurity hiring.

Where do you begin to build cybersecurity for your staffing company? And how can you enhance your existing measures against the advancing threat? Here are some guiding principles to protect your staffing company.

Recognize that your staffing firm holds sensitive data. In addition to internal company data, your firm’s strategic assets include confidential data on both client companies and job candidates. Bad actors may be tempted to try to steal that data and exploit it for any number of purposes.

“You can tell a lot about a person from their resume,” says Darren Hayes, an assistant professor at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York. “You may find their email address, Social Security number, skills set.”

The Hill's Pundits Blog: "UN nuclear weapons treaty takes most significant step since Cold War"

The Hill's Pundits Blog: "UN nuclear weapons treaty takes most significant step since Cold War"

"As Americans consider how to respond to times of increasing nuclear tensions, the nuclear weapons ban prompts us to ask different questions than our politicians and generals have traditionally focused on," writes Matthew Bolton, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at Pace University and director of its International Disarmament Institute. "Rather than asking only whether other countries’ nuclear arsenals pose a national security threat or whether missile defense systems work, the ban treaty focuses our attention on the humanitarian, human rights, and environmental dimensions of nuclear weapons."
