TheStreet.com: "Entertaining Clients? Save Your Money"

. . . “Nowadays there’s just a level of uncomfortability for the giver and the receiver,” says Bruce Bachenheimer, director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University in New York . “If you’re rolling out the red carpet for a customer, they’re going to assume you have incredibly high margins to do all that spending. They’re going to think, ‘Oh, he’s overcharging everyone — including me — in order to afford all this.”

Entrepreneurship NYC: The Role of Universities in the NYC Ecosystem

New York, October 9, 2013 — Pace University’s Entrepreneurship Lab and the MIT Enterprise Forum of NYC will host a forum to discuss the role of universities in the New York City entrepreneurship ecosystem. The event takes place on Thursday, November 7 at Pace’s downtown New York City campus, east of City Hall and six blocks from Wall Street, in the Aniello Bianco Room of One Pace Plaza, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The enormous impact universities have on regional economies can be clearly illustrated by examples such as Stanford in Silicon Valley and MIT in the Greater Boston area. In New York City, the role of universities extends well beyond research and technology transfer. Local universities have been integral to the success of New York’s ‘New Economy’ by playing a special role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This event will explore that unique role through a panel discussion followed by an interactive session with the audience.

PanelistsEric Gertler, Executive Vice President, New York City Economic Development Corporation and Managing Director, Center for Economic Transformation for the City of New York; Orin Herskowitz, VP of Intellectual Property and Tech Transfer, Columbia University and Executive Director of Columbia Technology Ventures; Debera Johnson, Executive Director, Pratt Institute’s Center for Sustainable Design Studies and founder of the Pratt Design Incubator for Sustainable Innovation; and Geoffrey W. Smith, founding Director of the Center for Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a co-founder and general partner of Ascent Biomedical Ventures. Moderator: Bruce Bachenheimer, Clinical Professor of Management and Director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University.

New York times Dance Review: "Pleasing Deities, and the Eyes, With Storytelling Steps From India"

. . . On Oct. 1 the venerable Leela Samson and Madhavi Mudgal, both based in Delhi, shared a bill at the Asia Society. On Saturday, Aparna Ramaswamy, a younger dancer from Minneapolis, lit up Pace University’s Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts. And at the Ailey Citigroup Theater on Sunday, New York’s own Rajika Puri gave a survey of her work, presented by the South Asian arts organization Navatman.

Together, these concerts afforded a close look at two highly codified dance forms, revealing nuances that can be hard to discern in a single evening.

University Business: "Cyberattacks on the rise in higher education"

University Business: "Cyberattacks on the rise in higher education"

. . . social media and the openness of the internet can be a big problem, says Darren Hayes, an assistant professor at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University in New York.

“With government-sponsored attacks, these happen over time, so they have staff who can spend a lot of time working on reconnaissance about different organizations,” says Hayes. “Lots of organizations, including universities, don’t often realize how much information they give out on the internet.”

For example, an institution may post an IT job opening on Monster.com or its own website that lists the computer systems, hardware, or software that candidates must know how to use.

“If their post says a candidate needs to be an expert on the IBM 5700, suddenly somebody knows they have an IBM 5700 and they know the vulnerabilities of that system,” Hayes says.

Members of an institution’s IT department may have a LinkedIn profile that lists their employer, position, and the hardware and software at which they are proficient. Also, IT staff may use internet forums to ask industry colleagues for help fixing a computer system. This provides hackers more valuable clues about an institution’s network, Hayes says.

But colleges and universities may not even be aware of the most sophisticated attacks until they are already well underway. Therefore, institutions need IT staff with a new range of “cyberforensic” skills to identify the virtually microscopic changes in a computer network that indicate an infiltration. “It can be something as simple as a couple of lines of code changed in a registry file,” says Hayes. “We’re talking about very, very small changes that traditional security tools do not pick up.”
