Kiplinger's Personal Finance: "Guide to Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft"

Kiplinger's Personal Finance: "Guide to Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft"

. . . If laws more broadly restricted the collection and sharing of personal information—and imposed greater penalties on entities that lose such data—consumers’ personal information would be less vulnerable, and organizations might be more motivated to improve security, says Darren Hayes, director of cybersecurity and assistant professor at Pace University. Sometimes victims are compensated through lawsuits. Target has agreed to pay a $10 million settlement to those who can provide evidence that they were affected by the 2013 breach of its customers' credit and debit card numbers and other information. Two federal employees unions have filed lawsuits against the OPM. One claims that the OPM violated employees' constitutional right to privacy. The other accuses the OPM of breaking a federal law when the agency failed to fix cybersecurity weaknesses, despite warnings from the Office of Inspector General.

Tampa Bay Times: "At 20, Clearwater native Vinny Ortega is running a theater company in New York"

Tampa Bay Times: "At 20, Clearwater native Vinny Ortega is running a theater company in New York"

As directors met for the first time to kick off a theater festival in June, an organizer approached a fresh-faced teenager in their midst.

In so many words, the man asked Vinny Ortega, of Clearwater, what he was doing there.

"Is your director here?" the stranger asked. "Are you an intern?"

Ortega, then 19, replied that he was the director of Hopeless, a one-act play about inner-city adolescents, as well as its playwright.

The festival official sheepishly explained that Ortega, a 2013 graduate of the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High, was younger than he expected. He was far from the first to make that mistake.

"It doesn't help that I look even younger than I am," said Ortega, who has since turned 20. The next youngest person in the room was around 30.

Ortega stands out in other ways. A junior at Pace University in New York City, he already has co-founded a theater company. The Dare Tactic, launched in 2014 with grant funding that Ortega secured, exists to produce and perform plays he writes, which so far have all come with a strong social message.

U.S. News: "Debunk 6 Myths About the Cost of Online Education"

. . . In the absence of dining halls, libraries, climbing walls and other amenities, prospective students could be forgiven for assuming that online tuition is lower than  tuition for on-ground programs. But that's not always the case. "I think there is a misconception that online is cheaper, and it's not," says Christine Shakespeare, assistant vice president of continuing and professional education at Pace University

. . . "It's often difficult to recognize a bubble while you're in it, as unreasonable optimism and speculative greed lead to the belief that a 'new paradigm' will validate wildly aggressive projections," said Bruce Bachenheimer, clinical professor of management at Pace University and executive director of its Entrepreneurship Lab. "It certainly appears that certain sectors of the market are due for a major correction," he said.

City & State: "Panel On STEM Education In New York City"

This summer many teenagers are just kicking back and relaxing. But thanks to several free summer programs offered throughout New York City select teens are participating in programs to promote STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). City & State spoke with three teens in these programs about why they are important for them personally and their fellow students.

The guests were:

Jahanara Nares is participating in Girls Who Code and spending her summer learning computer science and other technology skills at AT&T, which supports various STEM programs across New York City. The company has contributed nearly $2 million to the City's Education Department to develop and implement a STEM curriculum and last year contributed $1 million to Girls Who Code.

Nicholas Austin is a mentor at Pace University's STEM Collaboratory Summer Program. He participated in the program in the previous two years.

Pavan Khosla is a participant in the Brooklyn Science Innovation Initiative at Kingsborough Community College.

MarketWatch: "3 reasons the Apple Watch disappointed"

. . . first-generation devices usually have more buzz and fewer features than second-generation devices. “People who buy the first generation of a device are the ones who feel like they got burned,” says Darren Hayes, director of cyber security and an assistant professor at Pace University. “They were probably the coolest person on the block at the time, but those that bought the first generation iPad didn’t have the camera. I would advise on holding off and seeing what the second version will have.”

Westchester Magazine: "Pace University Training The Next Generation Of Cybersecurity Experts"

Westchester Magazine: "Pace University Training The Next Generation Of Cybersecurity Experts"

Over the last several years, it’s become increasingly clear how important cybersecurity is on both a national and personal level. Think about it: Everyday we walk around with high-tech computers, chock full of personal information and data, in our pockets. We are more susceptible than ever to getting our devices hacked and having our important information stolen. Due to this this heightened need for security, the National Security Agency (NSA) has been developing and preparing the next generation of highly trained cybersecurity experts—and it’s happening in our own backyard.

On their Pleasantville campus, Pace University recently wrapped up its first ever GenCyber cybersecurity workshop for high school teachers. From July 6 to July 17, about 25 high school teachers from around the country gathered at Pace to learn the fundamentals of cybersecurity and how, in turn, to teach it to their students.
