Despite WannaCry Attack, Companies Still Neglecting Cybersecurity, Says Keynote Speaker in Bloomberg

Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders and well-recognized keynote speaker, partnering with Terrapinn Training for 3-Day Masterclass Cybersecurity to bring key insights for CEOs and board members on cyber security.

New York City, NY, USA — Despite the ongoing cyber threat, firms are still neglecting cybersecurity, said Mr. Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, in a recent interview with Bloomberg Daybreak hosted by Bryan Curtis and Doug Krizner.

As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet usage increasingly widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, a recent study from security solutions provider Resilient Systems and market research firm Ponemon broke down key areas of continued failure for businesses.

The study found that 66% of IT and security professionals surveyed said their firms are unprepared to recover from a cyber attack, and 75% lack a formal incident response plan. A key example of this unpreparedness is that fact that many of the companies impact by the recent ransomware attack leveraging cryptoworm WannaCry had not installed patches in their Windows infrastructure that were released by Microsoft back in March. Vulnerabilities in commercial software are common; the only solution is to stay abreast of manufacturer’s releases, concluded Perez.

Ntaate launched this campaign to raise the funds needed to bring sustenance level laundry services to the people of Uganda. There is a lot involved with a project of this magnitude, but the team is very focused on making it a reality. Ntaate states, “We want to help the people in Uganda by offering laundry and dry cleaning services in the hopes of improving their lives! This may be a simple service to most people who take clean clothes for granted, but for our community, it is a real luxury.” The funds raised with this campaign will be used to purchase land, hi-tech laundry equipment, and service vehicles.

The humanitarian benefits that Nsuk plans to bring to the poor villagers in Uganda do not end with clean clothes. The team has a long term goal with their focus on improving living conditions, and making a real difference in the villages that they grew up in. Once the company is off the ground, Nsuk plans on using the profits to build low cost housing for the families in need. They have a goal of building 10 low-cost houses in the first year at an approximate cost of $13,500 per home. In years 2-5 they plan on building at least 20 homes per year, and completing their mission in year 6 with the final 10 homes. So, by the time the team has completed their mission, they will have built 100 self-contained houses for the local people in the Namayumba – Wakiso District of Uganda.

The team has been working very diligently on all of the essential groundwork for Nsuk Professional Laundry Limited and they are now ready to begin the process of making this humanitarian dream a reality which is why they have launched their campaign, and hired a team of crowdfunding specialists to help them spread the word. As an added bonus with this campaign, the team is offering several amazing perks. These perks, which serve as funding incentives, offers supporters the opportunity to back a great cause and get a handmade African souvenir as a reward. The perks range in value from a simple but heartfelt “Thank you”, to items such as: a wallet, keychains, passport bag. kitchen apron and gloves, hats, purses, placemats, wall art, t-shirts, and a bundle perk that includes multiple items. All items are hand crafted by a local village lady, and mailed straight from Africa. Full details can be found on the YouCaring campaign page.

National Black Gospel Sheet Music Source Is Now Available

It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore is one of the few sources of black gospel sheet music for musicians.

Landover, MD, USA — It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore (http://www.igccb.com) is now one of the largest sources of Black Gospel sheet music in the country. There are very few places where musicians can go to purchase Black Gospel sheet music because very few stores have been able to find a distribution channel that will provide the music. It’s God’s Choice has found several sources of Black Gospel and is providing it to church musicians and others nationwide and internationally.

“As a musician and a music teacher, I’m a witness to the fact that there aren’t many places where a musician can go in a store or online to find up-to-date Black Gospel sheet music. There are some songbooks that are available but not much in sheet music. It takes a lot of time learning and then teaching a new song to the church choir. It adds to the process when you have to transcribe the music first. With sheet music, the music is already written out which saves lots of time,” said Carolyn Walker, former church musician and current music buyer for the bookstore. “It’s God’s Choice is a blessing to gospel music lovers everywhere with over a thousand titles available,” said Thelma Lee.

The Black Gospel sheet music repertoire represent songs that have been sung by such famous singers as: Shirley Caesar, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Anthony Brown, William Murphy, Hezekiah Walker, Tasha Cobbs, Mississippi Mass Choir, Ricky Dillard, Martha Munizzi, Donald Lawrence, Charles Jenkins and many other well-known gospel singers, choirs and groups.

In 2002, It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and who has over 15 years of experience in this field. It’s God’s Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, tambourines, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. The store is now located at 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785 inside D’s Hairstylist. Those items that are not in the store can probably be found at the website, which is http://www.igccb.com. For further information, please call Thelma Lee at 301-499-5799.

A New Day for It’s God’s Choice: Back in Business

Officially Announcing that It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore Is Back in Business Locally and Online.

Landover, MD, USA — After about a year, It’s God’s Choice has finally officially re-opened with a new store location in Landover, Maryland. The new location is 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785, inside of D’s Hairstylists. The store still carries hard to find black gospel sheet music, songbooks and accompaniment tracks as well as church supplies, books, bibles, etc. The store takes orders for choir and pastoral robes too. “What we do not have on hand, you can probably order at our website, http://www.igccb.com,” says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer.

The storefront was closed some years ago and operated only using the website and by phone on April 1, 2013. Economy troubles have hit Christian bookstores very hard. Lots of Christian Bookstores have gone out of business even though some had been in business for over 25 years. It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore has been in business since 2002. “Unfortunately, overhead expenses increased far faster than sales. We just could not keep up,” says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer. “Most of our sales are website-related even though we had an antiquated website which did not take credit cards at first,” says Thelma Lee, Store Manager.

As of April 2017, most of the store sales were generated from the new improved website and from loyal customers who phoned in their orders. For some of the churches in the local area, It’s God’s Choice staff personally delivered orders depending on the size and went out to churches to measure choirs for robes. Most of It’s God’s Choice customers receive their merchandise via the mail. The store accepts payment through the website, over the phone as well as with PayPal.

Now customers can once again come to It’s God’s Choice and enjoy the shopping experience. For those who cannot come to the store to get sheet music, they can use the website. In fact, customers can download some sheet music directly from our website. This could not be done before with the old website. “Basically everything that we sell in the store, we will have on the website. We have over 4,000 products online and are adding to the site almost daily,” states Thelma Lee.

The phone number is the same, which is 301-499-5799. The website address is still http://www.igccb.com and the email address is still christianmusicandbooks@yahoo.com.

In 2002, It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and she has over 20 years of experience in this field. It’s God’s Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. For further information regarding this move, please call 301-499-5799 and ask for Thelma, the store manager. Please note phone problems: We can’t retrieve voice mail messages left on the phone, so please call back. Thanks.

Lazy Tree Ranch Consulting With Disc Golf Professionals on Course Design

Brewpub, food, bark park, playground all compliment the setting and add to the family friendly atmosphere.

Liberty Hill, TX, USA — Lazy Tree Ranch (http://www.lazytreeranch.com), a new events venue currently under construction in west Liberty Hill near Bertram, is consulting with disc golf industry professionals on the construction of a disc golf course at the events facility. The course, yet to be named, will have challenging holes with a fair amount of obstacles (trees).

Managing partner and co-founder Carl Braun is excited about the prospects. “We were approached by the disc golf community about creating something special at Lazy Tree Ranch. The greater Austin area is the epicenter for disc golf enthusiasts worldwide. Adding disc golf to our venue along with the Hops and Grapes brewpub, bark park, soccer field and play area will definitely put us on the map.”

Professional Disc Golf Association @PDGA players Thomas Stricklin and Kristen Womac are ecstatic about the opportunity.

“Thomas and I visited Lazy Tree Ranch a couple weeks ago and were amazed with the possibilities for a professional disc golf course on the property. As PDGA amateurs, with numerous career wins we have always wanted to participate in a project of our own where we had control over the creation of a world class disc golf course. Now, having invested as co-owners we’ll have a chance to put our stamp of approval on the project along with other disc golf enthusiasts,” noted Kristen “Kiki” Womac.

@LazyTreeRanch was founded in 2016 to become the area’s largest concert and events center. The 10.6 acre track is covered in one-hundred year old oak trees and has a huge grass field (150,000 sq ft) for soccer, events, concerts and of course disc golf. The Hops and Grapes Brewpub with beer, food and wine is expected to open later this year.

PDGA disc golfers can see a video and invest in the Lazy Tree Project starting at $100 on http://www.wefunder.com/lazytreeranch in a Regulation C crowdfunding effort. Special perks for disc golf enthusiasts will be offered. Terms on the website.

“We take delight in increasing developers’ productivity with practical products,” says Damodar Periwal, Founder, President & CEO of Software Tree. “Thanks to great feedback from many JDXA users, we have carefully enhanced our product and the associated documentation.

New York City, NY, USA — Renown cybersecurity speaker Edgar Perez is offering 360° Cybersecurity Awareness Training services for Forbes Global 2000 companies, in the wake of the large-scale WannaCry ransomware attack that leveraged malicious software stolen from the National Security Agency and exposed vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows computer systems in almost 150 countries.

Today cybersecurity is top of mind for management. That same cannot be said of all employees, who need to be appropriately trained and evaluated on a consistent basis. That is where MrEdgarPerez.com’s offering becomes critical; it offers the world’s first 360° Cybersecurity Awareness Training that effectively prepares employees at all levels of the organization, from the interns all the way up to the chairman, CEO and board members.

Any employee of major organizations can be exposed today to a sophisticated phishing attack. MrEdgarPerez.com provides a baseline analysis to understand how ready the client organization is to respond to this type of attacks; once training is complete, its readiness is benchmarked to the baseline assessment as well as competitors in the same industry.

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.

RECENT TESTIMONIALS

• “Your presentation was the real highlight of the Emerging Markets Investments Summit. You clearly have the connections in the industry and are very well connected.” Alex Ritson, BBC News Presenter at The Newsroom, World Business Report and Business Matters (United Kingdom)

• “I would like to show my appreciation on your willingness to share your insights about cybersecurity. We would certainly have you in mind as we move forward to deal with this very important issue.” Nik Hasyudeen, former President of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (Malaysia)

• “It was such a pleasure to have you participate in our conference. The feedback was great and the information you shared with the audience was invaluable. Once again, thank you for your contribution in making the event a success.” Holly Chudzy, Corporate Events Coordinator, Peters & Co. (Canada)

THE LARGEST RANSOMWARE CYBER ATTACK EVER

According to The New York Times, malicious software, transmitted via email and stolen from the National Security Agency, exposed vulnerabilities in computer systems in almost 150 countries in one of the largest “ransomware” attacks on record.

Cyberattackers took over the computers, encrypted the information on them and then demanded payment of $300 or more from users to unlock the devices. Some of the world’s largest institutions and government agencies have been affected, including the Russian Interior Ministry, FedEx in the United States and Britain’s National Health Service.

As people were fretting over whether to pay the digital ransom or lose data, attackers might be pocketing more than $1 billion worldwide before the deadline runs out to unlock the computers.

While most cyberattacks are inherently global, this one seems more virulent than most. It had spread to all corners of the globe, with Russia hit the worst, followed by Ukraine, India and Taiwan, said Kaspersky Lab, a Russian cybersecurity firm.

Fulham Introduces LinearHO DC LED Modules at Lightfair International 2017

New LinearHO LED DC Modules with extruded aluminum heat sink are designed for High Output Applications such as High Bays, Vapor Tights and Troffers.

All three models come with magnets pre-mounted for easy installation, and are self thermally managed thanks to the extruded aluminum design. The modules come with a pin connector and provided with a push-in connector harness for easy installation.

These modules are another example of Fulham’s commitment to clever lighting design, so we can provide OEMs and installers with LED modules that are more versatile, standards compliant, and easy to customize and install.”

Austrian Contemporary Artist Chris Delias Awarded Solo Art Exhibition

The exhibit will be curated by Mariavelia Savino, Contemporary Art Projects USA’s Chief Curator, and held at West Gallery, 3800 N. W. 115 Avenue in Doral, Florida. The opening reception will take place on May 18, 2017, at 11:00 am.

Miami, FL, USA — Miami Dade College West Campus Gallery – under the umbrella of The Museum of Contemporary Art + Design, and in collaboration with Contemporary Art Projects USA – will host the first Solo Exhibition of Austrian Contemporary Artist, Chris Delias titled: #CityofLife. The exhibit will be curated by Mariavelia Savino, Contemporary Art Projects USA’s Chief Curator, and held at West Gallery, 3800 N. W. 115 Avenue in Doral, Florida. The opening reception will take place on May 18, 2017, at 11:00 am.

Two issues have developed into our society’s highlights and an important part of the fashionable industry. The first one is the digital cell-phone as a picture taking camera with the ability of allowing its users to take selfies that are then posted in Social Media pages to be seen through the same cell-phone or another, as well as in a personal computer. The second issue is branding. It will refer to the clothing of the posers, and even to the brand of their car. In addition to brands such as Chanel, Vuitton, Nike, Ferrari or Lamborghini, just to name a few, today distinguished just by a simple logo or pattern that entitles the bearer to feel a somewhat superiority, there is now the digital practice of working with symbols to reduce wording and sentences. This has created the fashion of communicating by using “emojis” or “emoticons” that have shortened our language to like or unlike, smiles, tears or hearts, just to express with one only image what we feel or think on almost anything happening in our lives. This can be at the same time a positive or negative phenomena according to the point of view from which we judge it. Certainly, it is making to communicate universal for anybody, no matter where they are or what language they speak, going beyond location and the nature of the event portrayed.

However, according to artist Chris Delias: “3D printing is revolutionizing the way we design and build things. Several Social Media concepts have tried to digitalize our daily lives and the relationships between humans, all they do is make our lives more public and predictable. But: Social Media is just the symptom! The root cause of this sickness is superficiality. The result is what I call ‘Anti-Real-Relationship’ demonstrated in the artificial connections and relationships on various social media. For me it is terrible to see how real friends, real relations and feelings become less important and more voyeuristic. Of course, these social media have revolutionized the way we communicate and made it easier to stay connected regardless of where we are at any given moment. Everything that makes our lives easier and faster has a chance to be successful, but it leaves a gap between the digital and the real. My art intends to close this gap… My art should depict emotions, humans, faces in a way that you can’t find in our digitalized society. For me the spotlight is on the beauty of humanity, it’s my first priority – emotions caused by love, music, harmony… But, not only the sunny side of the world will be represented in my art – people don’t just love one another – they hate and fight – they lose, feel intense pain, experience crushing war and destruction, all of which are part of human interaction… My work should not show the reality 1:1 – the colors, proportions and poses I use are reflective of my emotions and feelings during the painting process. It is an interactive process between my soul, the model or person and the canvas – an interactive realism. My art is a projection of the reality to my soul.” Mariavelia Savino is the Curator of the exhibition.

Seattle, WA, USA — Infinity SAV USA (http://www.infinitysav.us) has been nominated for the Katerva Award for sustainable innovations in Clean Energy. Katerva Award (http://www.katerva.net) is often referred to as the Nobel Prize of Sustainability. Gary Tripp, President of Infinity SAV USA says their, “generator will stop Climate Change by eliminating CO2 from electricity and transportation and will cut the cost of power by 90%.” Katerva selects the companies with innovations that will change the market and the environment for the better and Infinity certainly does.

Infinity SAV USA technology claims it technology will replace fossil fuels for electricity and transportation. The company’s working generator prototype is powered by permanent magnets and produces 3 kW of excess energy. The generator has been demonstrated to hundreds of people including engineers and academics.

The Infinity generator technology will benefit everyone – the poor villager with no electricity, who has to walk miles for water and the clogged cites breathing polluted air. Infinity’s generator powered solely by permanent magnets will replace fossil fuels for electricity and transportation.

Infinity SAV USA Incorporated is developing an electric generator to power homes and small businesses for as little as $0.02 per kWh. The goal is to stop climate change, save the environment, and save money.

The company has uploaded several video demonstrations to YouTube and those videos have received 500,000 views, and many many requests to purchase generators. The company plans to use this technology as the starting point to develop a 20 kW generator that will completely power a house or small business.

The company’s founder and inventor, Andrii Slobodian, explains that the generator has permanent magnets in the stator and coils of copper wire in the rotor. When a magnet approaches a coil of copper wire, it induces a like polarity in the coil. North induces North and North repels North and that causes the rotor to spin and creates power.

Skeptics say it is impossible because it violates the Law of Conservation of Energy. Infinity responds by pointing to their working prototype. Magnets are caused by quantum mechanical spin of unpaired electrons. The company believes their generator conforms with Law of Conservation of Energy on the quantum level. Electron spin may be the source of the quantum effect causing this new source of energy. (Electrons don’t spin, it is just shorthand for “maintaining their magnetic dipole moment.”)

The company is using the crowdfunding site Fundable.com to raise money to complete the engineering in the US for a bigger version of the generator.

The many benefits of this new energy source include cheap, clean, renewable, 24/7 electricity with no CO2. These generators could be used to power a house, charge the battery of electric cars, or provide power in remote locations. Decreasing the cost of electricity and stopping pollution will benefit everyone, especially the poorest among us.

Avoid Google Docs Phishing with Cyber Security Awareness Training for Boards, CEOs and Employees

Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, provides essential cyber security awareness training to reduce the risk that employees and partners can fall victim to sophisticated phishing or social engineering methods and unknowingly serve as entry points into the firm’s information and data systems.

New York City, NY, USA — An unusually sophisticated identity phishing campaign that targeted Gmail users and sought to gain control of their entire email histories was revealed by Google last week.

The worm, which arrived in users’ inboxes posing as an email from trusted contacts, asked users to check out an attached “Google Docs,” or GDocs, file. Clicking on the link took them to a real Google security page, where users were asked to give permission for the fake app, posing as GDocs, to manage users’ email account. To make matters worse, the worm also sent itself out to all of the affected users’ contacts reproducing itself hundreds of times any time a single user fell for it.

While the worm caused havoc for millions of users because of its unusually sophisticated construction, firms that trusted cybersecurity expert and trainer Edgar Perez would have been spared the expensive and embarrassing experience of having their information compromised. Mr. Perez’s programs target boards, CEOs and employees and turns them into the company’s first line of defense.

Equities First (London) Limited — UK Transaction Update and 15th Anniversary Statistics for Parent Company

London, UK — Equities First Holdings, LLC (EFH), a global provider of shareholder financing, confirms it has returned all shares used as collateral as part of a loan agreement with Joel Leonoff, chief executive of Paysafe plc as announced by the company on 24 March, 2017 (Details Here). Mr. Leonoff entered into the loan in March 2014 and has repaid his loan in full.

Since establishing its London office in 2013, EFH has carried out more than [£45MN] of shareholder loans to Professional Investors. The Paysafe plc transaction is the second public repatriation of shares — following a full repayment by Andrew Newland, CEO of Angle plc on 27 October, 2016 (Details Here). There are currently a portfolio of publicly announced or privately transacted UK loan agreements on the EFH books and discussions continue with other potential clients in the UK and throughout Europe.

“We are very pleased with the progress made by our London office, which is spearheading our commitment of US$100m of further investment for lending to the European Professional market in general,” said EFH founder and CEO, Al Christy, Jr.

Meanwhile, EFH — which is based in the USA — has announced in the month of its 15th anniversary that it has successfully completed more than 700 transactions since its inception and delivered in excess of US$1 billion to clients in the past four years alone.

EFH (http://www.equitiesfirst.com) continues global expansion — with 9 offices in the USA, Europe, the Far East and Australia — thanks to an investment model that takes advantage of natural, organic cycles in the market.

“Securities-based lending is a long-standing financial tool used by companies, governments, and individuals every day,” said Christy. “But very few financial institutions, including large commercial banks, can offer non-recourse features or loans with a low cost of funds. We have a successful track record because we live and breathe equities-based lending every day.”

Equities First (London) Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom, register number 605564.
