Edgar Perez Leading Cybersecurity Workshop for CEOs in NYC, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta & Sydney

Edgar Perez brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, seminars in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo that are specifically designed for board members, senior executives and entrepreneurial business professionals looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage in one of the most critical subjects for corporations and governments worldwide.

Workshop

New York City, NY, USA (August 28, 2015) — The extramarital affair website Ashley Madison has been served with a US $578 million lawsuit following a breach that resulted in data concerning 39 million of its members being leaked online, including usernames, messages and email and home addresses. Furthermore, it was recently disclosed by Gizmodo editor-in-chief Annalee Newitz that most of the female accounts were fake. The official numbers from the site showed that 31 million of the accounts belonged to men while 5 million supposedly were linked to females. However, Newitz found that 10,000 accounts were created with the ashleymadison.com email, implying that they were test subscriptions. Nine thousand of those 10,000 belonged to women, while the remaining numbers were either categorized as male or no gender specified.

Firms like Avid Dating Life and Avid Media, the Toronto-based companies that run Ashley Madison, now begin to view cyber attacks as existential threats to their survival; ignoring cyber security issues can have the most dangerous and lasting consequences for global and local corporations. They join now an ever growing list of large companies that have suffered high-profile cyber security breaches that include Adobe, ADP, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.cybersecurityboardroomworkshop.com), How Boards of Directors and CXOs Can Build the Proper Foundation to Address Today’s Information Security Challenges, is specifically designed for boards of directors and CEOs of public and private firms looking for new ways to gain and maintain their competitive advantages. Business executives with responsibility for IT, finance, compliance, risk management and procurement as well as entrepreneurs and innovators are welcome to add their points of view to the debate.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is a must-attend forum for board members, CEOs, CFOs, COOs and executive managers in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo who need to become more educated about cyber security in order to ask questions that are strategic yet granular enough to address company specifics. Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is targeted at corporate decision-makers for whom cybersecurity readiness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

The presenter is a published author, business consultant for billion-dollar private equity and hedge funds and Council Member at the Gerson Lehrman Group, with subject matter expertise in cybersecurity, investing, trading, financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Act) and market structure. Mr. Perez has presented his workshops in cities around the world, including Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, New York, Singapore, Beijing and Shanghai.

Groups Combine Forces to Target GOP Incumbents Backing Amnesty for Illegals

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

ALIPAC is announcing a groundbreaking new tactic that is being added to The Cantor List which targets GOP incumbents in Congress who support immigration reform amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Alipac

Raleigh, NC, USA — ALIPAC is announcing a groundbreaking new tactic that is being added to The Cantor List which targets GOP incumbents in Congress who support immigration reform amnesty for illegal immigrants.

This new innovative strategy involves adding 100 Facebook social media pages created by the activist group Rise Up America (RUA) to the Cantor List. The RUA social media groups and the Cantor List will now point at each other so volunteers can easily use both the list and the groups to recruit and support GOP primary challengers!

View Upgraded Cantor List: The Cantor List

“While Facebook is heavily and actively biased against conservative activists like us, we hope this unprecedented move of marrying 100 social media groups with the Cantor List will help Americans find and support more qualified challengers to throw more Eric Cantor style amnesty supporters out of office in 2016!” said ALIPAC’s President William Gheen. “The Trump campaign phenomena can inspire more candidates to challenge establishment Republicans and create a GOP primary coattail effect that will benefit our anti-amnesty challenger candidates while the implosion of the Jeb Bush campaign creates negative coattail pressure on corrupt incumbents like John McCain and John Boehner!”

ALIPAC has already endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward and JD Winteregg in their GOP primary campaigns to remove Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner from office 2016 and has standing endorsements for 75 members of Congress that the US Chamber of Commerce is targeting for removal because they stopped amnesty legislation.

When visitors visit the Cantor List, which is still under construction, they may now click on the names of political targets to access the ALIPAC Amnesty profile page or click on the “Organize Against on Facebook” link to access 100 pages of activists! While some pages are new with few or handfuls of people on them so far, others have hundreds to thousands of supporters already in place for this new phase of the Cantor List.

Social media users visiting any of the 100 Facebook pages being entwined with the Cantor List will see links back to the ALIPAC Amnesty Profiles, the Cantor List, and regular updates posted about the national movement to revolt against GOP establishment candidates seeking to change current US laws to accommodate and promote millions of illegal aliens on US soil.

Rise Up America and the 100 Facebook groups matching the targets on the Cantor List were created by volunteers who were originally inspired by ALIPAC’s initial call to target and replace GOP lawmakers that voted to fund Obama’s amnesty decrees via a clean DHS funding bill in January of 2015.

For more information or to schedule interview, please visit http://www.ALIPAC.us To review the Cantor List and the 100 Facebook pages being added to the list, visit http://www.alipac.us/f8/cantor-list-321399.

ALIPAC Endorses 2 Amnesty Fighters Earlier than Ever Before

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

ALIPAC is making the national organization’s first endorsements of the 2016 cycle to support two very strong candidates who will challenge notorious GOP illegal immigrant amnesty supporters John McCain and Speaker John Boehner.

Alipac

Raleigh, NC, USA — Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is making the national organization’s first endorsements of the 2016 cycle to support two very strong candidates who will challenge notorious GOP illegal immigrant amnesty supporters John McCain and Speaker John Boehner! This is the first time that ALIPAC has issued endorsements before the actual election year.

ALIPAC is formally endorsing J.D. Winteregg who is running again against John Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District. In 2014, Winteregg ran against John Boehner who is a top target on ALIPAC’s “Cantor List” due to his overt and covert support for Obama’s illegal immigrant amnesty executive actions that 26 states are suing to stop. Americans concerned about illegal immigration and immigration reform amnesty that further undermines America’s border and laws are encouraged to volunteer, vote for, donate to, and support J.D. Winteregg for Congress at http://www.jdwinteregg.com.

ALIPAC is also endorsing Kelli Ward for US Senate in Arizona. Dr. Ward is challenging Senator John McCain who recently polled as the most despised member of the US Senate. John McCain defeated challenger JD Hayworth in 2010 by promising Arizona’s GOP voters that he would no longer support amnesty for illegal aliens. Then, upon returning to DC, McCain supported and voted to pass Amnesty bill S. 744 completely betraying his promise. Dr. Kelli Ward is an Arizona state senator with the campaign experience necessary to defeat John McCain whose notorious negative campaign tactics are likely to backfire when he attacks a respected Arizona woman. http://www.kelliward.com.

“Both John Boehner and John McCain are corrupt and deceptive politicians rich with the big money of the US Chamber of Commerce,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Boehner and McCain are trying their best to help Obama and the Chamber lock in millions of illegal aliens via amnesty legislation. We are going to do all we can to support J.D. Winteregg’s and Kelli Ward’s efforts to throw these treacherous men out of office just like we helped to throw Eric Cantor out in 2014. In fact, using ALIPAC’s Cantor List, the research we provide with each person on the list, and the know-how we learned fighting Eric Cantor, we plan to target close to 100 GOP amnesty supporters in 2016.”

GOP candidates who support any form of amnesty for illegal immigrants, including deceptive guest worker programs, temporary worker programs, Dream Act amnesty, or “immigration reform” are highly vulnerable to primary challengers who promise voters they will advocate for the adequate enforcement of America’s immigration laws instead of any amnesty legislation that would permanently undermine them.

ALIPAC believes that the Dave Brat victory over incumbent GOP lawmaker Eric Cantor in 2014 can be repeated in many districts across America because over 80% of Republican voters oppose the immigration reform legislation plans the US Chamber of Commerce and Democrats support! (Click here to view polling data: http://www.alipac.us/illegal_immigration_facts_statistics)

ALIPAC was originally founded on 9/11 2004 by campaign volunteers who wanted to create an organization that would offer more support for average citizens who were working to stop illegal immigration and amnesty.

Candidates recruited or endorsed by ALIPAC will be added to ALIPAC’s standing endorsements list (Click here to view: http://www.alipac.us/campaign) and added as Endorsed Challengers to the new “Eric Cantor List” where activists are working hard in every state to find strong GOP challengers for 105 Republican incumbents documented as supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants just like Eric Cantor!

Art Gallery Named Cortez Austin as Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Logo

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that wildlife photographer Cortez Austin is the gallery’s newest featured artist.

Cortez Austin - Artist Showcase

Jupiter, FL, USA — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that wildlife photographer Cortez Austin is the gallery’s newest featured artist. Cortez Austin bought a 35mm camera from a friend in 1976 and started on a long photographic journey which has taken him around the world recording the wonders of nature. Cortez graduated from Howard University in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology. He continued his education there taking graduate courses in microbiology. It was the great outdoors, however, rather than the laboratory that captured his passion.

Cortez has written articles for and has had his photographs published by some of the most prestigious magazines and book publishing companies such as National Geographic, WildBird, Birder’s World, National Audubon and the Nature Conservancy. He also taught nature photography part-time as a part of the upper school two dimensional art program at St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. for 23 years.

During his 39 year career Cortez has won many awards and recognition in domestic and international competitions such as the Professional Photographers of America International Print Competition with whom he has photos in the coveted Loan Collection. In January he will receive the Master of Photography Degree from them along with a Silver Medal for having all of his images accepted into their most recent competition.

Cortez believes that, as much knowledge as you may accumulate in photography, the best photographers will always be students of the craft. Regarding his quest for photographs he states… “I make many sacrifices of money, comfort and safety to get to where I want to photograph. Once I get there I struggle to see things a new way, to get beyond the standard photograph. Often the most critical “skills” in photography are patience and perseverance in uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous situations.” His website is http://www.cortezaustinphotography.com.
