U.S. News & World Report: "Bottom-Line Politics"

U.S. News & World Report: "Bottom-Line Politics"

. . . as the political has gotten more personal under Trump, so have corporations. Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump's clothing line, drawing an angry tweet ("Terrible!") from the new president. It was purely a bottom-line business decision, the retailer said, but it would not have been done, experts say, if the company thought a backlash would be more detrimental to sales. Not satisfied with merely fighting the policy change on climate change, Tesla's Elon Musk and Disney's Robert Iger got in Trump's face and off of his advisory team, resigning from the president's Strategic and Policy Forum.

Reebok's not-so-veiled criticism of the president was calculated, too, marketing specialists say, with the equation being that defending women would help sales more than chastising the president would damage them. "Companies are constantly looking to build their brand or relationships with consumers. You really can't be all things to all people. You really have to have a definitive persona," says Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

Pace University, ACCA USA, to Train Finance Professionals to Stymie Cyberattacks this Summer

Pace University, ACCA USA, to Train Finance Professionals to Stymie Cyberattacks this Summer

New York, N.Y. –ACCA USA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), the global body for professional accountants, and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University in New York, a National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security-certified Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education, today unveiled their first-ever cyberdefense course.

The course—which will be held on August 4 at Pace in Lower Manhattan—will provide professional development credits to accountants and other finance industry professionals. It was designed in the wake of an increasing pattern of cyberattacks that have struck private and public entities here in the United States and abroad.

“ACCA understands the challenges that accountants face and is determined to provide them with the necessary knowledge and training to address these cyber-challenges. Accountants and finance professionals are on the frontlines of this cyberbattle, and need to be armed with the latest information,” said Warner Johnston, Head of ACCA USA. “We are proud to collaborate with Pace University on this timely and crucial course, and expect that enrolees will leave better equipped to prevent and address cyberattacks.”

“The threat from cybercrime and hackers has only increased over time” said Jonathan Hill, Dean of the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University. “The ACCA has been a particularly adept partner in educating financial professionals and the at-risk accounting and CPA professional communities on coping with these threats. This program is specifically designed for these financial professionals to build awareness and tools to protect themselves, their firms and their clients from the ravages of cybercrime.”

The course—Foundations of Cyber Defense for Accounting—will include content on: information security law; effective incident response; risk management, including security metrics; encryption and best practices for protecting data; and, building an insider threat program.

Anyone interested in enrolling should visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/best-practices-in-cybersecurity-for-professional-accountants-tickets-35677991834. Inquiries can be directed to DJ McErlean-Hopson at acca.usa@accaglobal.com.

ACCA and Pace planned the course amid a troubling global crisis: cybercrime. The financial hit on business can be troubling: An IBM report last year found the cost of a breach rose to $4 million per incident. Earlier this year, Home Depot agreed to pay more than $27 million to financial institutions affected by its 2014 data breach, and court documents reportedly identified the total cost to Home Depot at $179 million.

In February 2016, ACCA reported that cybercrime was growing too dangerous and powerful to ignore, and a head-in-the-sand attitude to this once nascent, now pervasive threat was no longer an option. In the report, “Cybersecurity – Fighting Crime’s Enfant Terrible”, ACCA and IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) reported that the theft of financial assets through cyber-intrusions was the second largest source of direct loss from cybercrime.

Several months earlier, ACCA issued a report, “Cyberwarriors with Calculators”, in partnership with Pace University, revealing that top-level managers in the finance industry are adapting to address cybercrime threats. The survey of ACCA professionals, including Chief Financial Officers, Managing Directors, Senior Vice Presidents and practicing accountants, found weak communication between line managers and senior managers about attacks and attempted attacks, and that the application of fundamental risk management cybersecurity practices should be applied more consistently throughout firms.

In another report, ACCA and Pace also delved more deeply into the growing number of incidents involving skimming devices, which rip off consumers at gas pumps and ATMs. A skimmer is an electronic device used to read and store electronic data. The new research focused on devices that read and recorded data from consumer payment cards, such as ATM, credit, debit, prepaid and electronic gift cards.

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.”

. . . 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.
