CNN: "Can Washington keep your data secure?"

CNN: "Can Washington keep your data secure?"

. . . While consumers were able to file a class action lawsuit against Target resulting in a $10 million settlement in March, it is unlikely that similar actions will be taken against the federal government said Dr. Darren Hayes, the director of cyber security and an assistant professor at Pace University in New York.

"It's very difficult for citizens to prove that the government or any other entity was negligent," Hayes said. "There is no recourse really."

Part of the problem is the fact that many government agencies use outdated hardware and software systems that make them more prone to hacks and data breaches, Hayes said. The federal government is also a prime target for countries like Russia and China that have sophisticated hacking operations meant to take down American infrastructure, Hayes said.

"I do sympathize with the government agencies and private sector companies who are trying to protect data," he said, "But they are up against the threat of thousands of people dedicated to stealing this information."

Wall Street Journal: "How to Survive Being an Overnight Success"

. . . For businesses that can’t get by with temporary workers—those that need skilled labor to handle long-term projects, for instance—experts advise that founders or trusted early employees stay involved in the hiring process for quality control.

As a company grows, it’s “very difficult for them to maintain that culture,” warns Bruce Bachenheimer, a management professor and executive director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University.

NEW YORK, June 2, 2015 - Project Rebirth, Inc. (www.projectrebirth.org), the resilience resource for those who serve community and country, announced two new additions to their Board of Directors today, Vanessa J. Herman and Darryl Powell.

“Vanessa and Darryl have led efforts to advance Project Rebirth’s resilience building among our key communities in their respective organizations. We are very pleased that they have accepted our offer to join the Board as a way to further deepen our relationship with Pace and the 100 Black Men, and to bring their own skills and energy to advancing our mission with other partners,” said Brian Rafferty, Board Chairman.

Herman brings more than 25 years of experience in government, community, and public relations to the Board.  At Pace, Herman leads the Office of Government and Community Relations and serves as the primary liaison for the Campus Community in New York City and Westchester with federal, state and local elected officials, staff, government agencies, key stakeholders and the community at large.  Prior to joining Pace, Herman was the Assistant Director of Governmental Relations at Stony Brook University for more than 12 years and served as Press Secretary, Executive Assistant, Director of Community Relations and campaign staff for former US Senator Alfonse D’Amato (R-NY) from 1991 to 1999 in New York City. Herman has a B.A. in Political Science/ Sociology and an M.A. in Literature, both from Stony Brook University and an A.A.S in Criminal Justice from Suffolk Community College. Her husband, Mike Donohue, is a Master Sergeant with the New York Army National Guard.

Herman said: “It is truly an honor to join the Board of Directors at Project Rebirth, to be part of an organization that cares so much for our military, veterans and first responders is something I cherish.  I look forward to working with Project Rebirth to help them achieve their mission to build resilience after suffering grief, loss and trauma.” 

Powell serves as the Vice President of Mentoring for the 100 Black Men of Virginia Peninsula. Darryl is a senior Department of the Army Civilian assigned to Fort Eustis, Virginia and a US Army Veteran with service as an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist from 1981 through 2002.  As Vice-President of Mentoring, Darryl builds teams of volunteers who work one-on-one and in groups with youths in Virginia. Darryl has been instrumental to Project Rebirth’s work with the 100 Black Men, helping us to identify how stories from film participant Charles Cook continue to resonate in the African American community and to further develop our programs for youth.

Powell said: “I am humbled and excited by the opportunity to join the Board of Directors of Project Rebirth and look forward to championing our work with the 100 Black Men of Virginia Peninsula as well as with the other communities Project Rebirth serves.”

The Hill's Congress Blog: "U.S. is losing its intellectual property to international thieves"

The Hill's Congress Blog: "U.S. is losing its intellectual property to international thieves"

The news this week that the U.S. government charged six Chinese nationals with economic espionage is another disturbing example of how vulnerable we are to theft by other nations wanting to steal intellectual property, writes James W. Gabberty, professor of information systems at Pace University in New York City.

Whether it involves copying aircraft designs such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that showed up in China’s J31, or the whitening agent developed and owned by DuPont and used to make white colors brighter in everything from Oreo cookies to BMWs, China has been stealing every bit of western technology it can get its hands on, often with aplomb.

ProPublica: "Cruise Control"

. . . “On an airplane, if one of the restrooms is contaminated and the virus hits days later, the passengers are scattered and no one’s there to connect the dots,” said Andrew O. Coggins Jr., a cruise industry expert and professor of management at Pace University. “On the other hand, on a cruise ship... everyone’s going to be in close proximity and it’s going to be noticeable.”

Barron's: "Retirement Investors’ $500 Million Mistake"

. . . Matthew Morey, a New York Stock Exchange research scholar and professor at Pace University, said that “while some actively managed funds beat their benchmark, they almost never do this consistently — and if they do consistently beat the benchmark this result is very likely due to luck rather than skill. Investors should stick with low cost index funds. Period.”

CNN: "Asian-American groups accuse Harvard of discrimination"

. . . Chunyan Li, an assistant professor of accounting at Pace University who helped recruit groups to join the complaint, said the university's emphasis on race in the application process is unfair.

"This approach is subjective," Li said. "If it is all implemented objectively, then how come all Asians on average have such higher scores? What's the fairness in this? If (Harvard) pushes for (a) holistic approach, then make it fair. If you kept emphasizing race, then there is no way out."
