Homeland Security Today: "Accounting and Finance Professionals Play Increasing Role in Cybersecurity"

Homeland Security Today: "Accounting and Finance Professionals Play Increasing Role in Cybersecurity"

Accounting and finance professionals are increasingly finding themselves on the forefront of their organization’s cybersecurity efforts, according to a new survey. As cyber criminals continue to target sensitive financial data, those who deal with this information day-in and day-out have been called on to play a role in their organization’s efforts to protect and improve their cybersecurity posture.

“The growth of cybercrimes across our nation and world has risen to astronomic and unprecedented levels in recent years,” said Warner Johnston, head of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). “As technology advances, so has the threat of silent attacks that strike at the core of our technological infrastructure.”

Johnston continued, “An initial step to implementing stronger controls is first understanding the seriousness of such cyberthreats, existing weaknesses in our infrastructures, and remedies that represent more than stopgap measures.”

The ACCA’s second annual cybersecurity best practices survey, undertaken by the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University, revealed accounting and finance professionals are adapting to meet the challenges of the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape. The increasing number of damaging cyber attacks is prompting concern over how to respond to sophisticated threats.

Bloomberg: "How VW's Plan to Win America Backfired"

Bloomberg: "How VW's Plan to Win America Backfired"

. . . In his resignation statement on Wednesday, Winterkorn -- who has a reputation for obsessive attention to engineering details -- said he was "not aware of any wrongdoing on my part" and that he was "stunned" by the revelations.

Even if Winterkorn was unaware of the cheating, experts say it’s unlikely it could have been the work of only a few individuals. Emissions and mileage standards are a central component of car and engine design, affecting weight, performance, and price.

Intricate System

"The system is so intricate that it is totally impossible that there was not, up and down the line, knowledge of what they were doing," said John Alan James, a former consultant for automakers such as General Motors and Volvo who now chairs the corporate governance center at Pace University in New York.

Winterkorn is likely to have many more opportunities to practice his English as American prosecutors, regulators and lawyers round on Volkswagen. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has opened a criminal probe, and an investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency could result in as much as $18 billion in penalties. That’s before class-action suits, state-level investigations or cases brought by other federal agencies.

In July 2014 in Wolfsburg, the company town west of Berlin where Volkswagen has its headquarters, Winterkorn had spoken at length -- in German -- about his ambitions for the U.S. The occasion was the announcement of a new sport-utility vehicle to be built in Tennessee, "a true American car, big, attractive, and with lots of high-tech," as Winterkorn put it, that would capture the country’s attention.

A little over a year later, and for very different reasons, Volkswagen’s certainly got it.

E-Commerce Times: "Amazon Fans Fire's Flames"

E-Commerce Times: "Amazon Fans Fire's Flames"

. . . Amazon is striking while the iron is hot, noted Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

Shoppers have a high level of trust in Amazon, he said, referencing a yet-to-be-released study on millennial consumers and their habits, conducted by the Marketing Executives Networking Group.

More than half of respondents in both the millennials group and the 35-and-older group indicated they trusted Amazon more than any other major tech company, according to Chiagouris. About 17 percent of the millennials pointed to Google, about 12 percent to Apple, roughly 8 percent to Facebook, and about 5 percent indicated that Microsoft was the most trustworthy of the bunch.

"Amazon cannot be expected to remain so far ahead on the important trust factor forever, and they are doing what they can to exploit the trust advantage, which includes launching new products and services that will be more readily accepted today than ... a year or two from now," Chiagouris told the E-Commerce Times.
