Agence France-Presse: "FBI-Apple standoff puts encryption on front burner"

Agence France-Presse: "FBI-Apple standoff puts encryption on front burner"

. . . Darren Hayes, a Pace University professor of computer forensics, argued that Apple and other tech companies may have gone too far by using encryption that, in theory, makes it impossible for the firms to hand over evidence even if served with a legal warrant.

"I think that the public, once they become more educated about what is happening, might change their stance about Apple," said Hayes, who has worked as a consultant to law enforcement.

"This case is sensitive for the US public and I don't think it's particularly good public relations for Apple" to refuse to help the investigation, Hayes added.

SiliconBeat: "Apple’s Tim Cook doubles down, won’t comply with order to help FBI hack into iPhone"

SiliconBeat: "Apple’s Tim Cook doubles down, won’t comply with order to help FBI hack into iPhone"

. . . Apple is “risking a lot given the sensitivity of the San Bernardino case,” said Darren R. Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Seidenberg School of CSIS at Pace University in New York. “It risks the tide of public opinion swaying.”

In a phone interview with SiliconBeat, Hayes said Apple’s stand might also push Congress to “change legislation to push companies to develop technologies to facilitate” law enforcement investigations.

Hayes also said he found it interesting that Apple is making this strong stand now considering “what law enforcement has been asking for is for the company to revert back to key management” — in other words, to go back to the time a couple of years ago when Apple could comply with such requests to unlock phones.

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business Maintains Prestigious Dual AACSB Accreditation for both Business and Accounting

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business Maintains Prestigious Dual AACSB Accreditation for both Business and Accounting

(NY, NY) (February 16, 2016)—The Lubin School of Business at Pace University has successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Fewer than 2% of business schools worldwide have this elite dual accreditation for both business and accounting. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are 755 business schools in 51 countries and territories that maintain AACSB accreditation. Similarly, 182 institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, engagement with an AACSB assigned mentor, and peer review. During this multi-year process schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s accreditation standards. These standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

To realize accounting accreditation, an institution must first earn AACSB business accreditation. Then, in addition to developing and implementing a mission-driven plan to satisfy the business accreditation quality standards, accounting accreditation requires the satisfaction of an additional set of standards that are specific to the profession of accounting.

“AACSB congratulates Pace University for completing the multi-year continuous improvement review process, and for successfully maintaining their dual accreditation in both business and accounting,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “The Lubin School of Business has embraced and embodied engagement, innovation, and impact as the foundation for their accreditation and continuous improvement efforts. We congratulate the leadership, faculty, and staff for this important dual accomplishment.”

Pace University has a rich history of excellence in business education and was founded as a school of accountancy in 1906. With a strong focus on experiential learning and one of the largest internship placement programs in the New York metropolitan area, Lubin’s job placement overall is 90%. “We are delighted that the AACSB Peer Review Team were highly complimentary about our progress toward continuous improvement over the last five years,” said Lubin’s Dean Neil Braun. “The focus on career preparation for our students, the collegiality and engagement of faculty, and the inclusiveness and integration of our very diverse student population, were cited as exemplary.”

U.S. News & World Report: "Corporate Inversion Costs the Country Billions"

U.S. News & World Report: "Corporate Inversion Costs the Country Billions"

. . . Phil Cohen, professor at Pace University's Lubin School of Business, former executive at consumer good giant Unilever and former tax attorney, says an issue that "absolutely should be bipartisan" has been muddled in political debate. Conservatives and liberals have been unable to agree on how best to address inversion and, once fixed, where the new corporate tax revenues should be funneled.

U.S. News recently spoke with Cohen about what's preventing the government from collecting billions of dollars in tax revenue and his view on what can be done.

WCBS 880: "Stories From Main Street: Westchester Teens Design Apps To Help Senior Citizens"

WCBS 880: "Stories From Main Street: Westchester Teens Design Apps To Help Senior Citizens"

There’s a rather unfair stereotype that technology and senior citizens don’t get along, says Jean Coppola, associate professor of information technology at Pace University.

“But we found in our gerontechnology research that you can break that barrier,” Coppola told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams.

And to break that barrier, they’re turning to tech-tinkering teens. This is the second year Westchester County and Pace University have teamed up for The Westchester Smart Mobile App Development Bowl.

Daily News: "Donald Trump, despite N.H. primary victory, faces tough task to win GOP nomination"

Daily News: "Donald Trump, despite N.H. primary victory, faces tough task to win GOP nomination"

Despite a “yuge” win in New Hampshire on Tuesday and a second-place finish in Iowa last week, Donald Trump doesn’t have enough support to be anointed anything and faces an uphill battle in the race for his party’s nomination, political experts say.

While Trump got 35% support among Granite State Republicans, more than 60% of them voted against the real estate mogul, spreading their backing among a splintered slate of six mostly establishment candidates and sending a message that most GOPers don’t in fact like The Donald.

“Two out of three people didn’t vote for him,” David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University, told the Daily News. “You have to look at it from that perspective.”

Financial Times: "Trump moves into Republican mainstream with New Hampshire victory"

. . . “Trump took a giant step forward tonight, but he did not secure the nomination,” said David Caputo, president emeritus of Pace University in New York. “He is in position to do so as the Republican rules will favour a winner take all [for] the delegates after March 14 . . . Unless his opposition solidifies by then he will have a clear path to the nomination after March 14th.”
