    Games for Learning and Education: A Survey of Today’s Landscape & Predictions for The Future That Will Be Proven Wrong Later

    Gameplay has always been a key component of learning. Many board games from the mid 1800s were developed to teach moral and ethical principles to the player, and later became vehicles for teaching reading, writing and arithmetic. Video games have matured from simple drillware (digital workbooks) to deep educational games; even some that were intended as entertainment games are finding use in classrooms. Recently, we have seen greater interest in gamification of education and learning programs and software. This presentation will examine the long and winding road games for learning and education have taken and how they might evolve in the future.

    Cybercrime in the World Today 2014

    Cybercrime in the World Today 2014

    They say crime doesn’t pay but cybercrime, like ATM skimming, empties our bank accounts by more than a billion dollars each year. Pace University and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) hosted "Cybercrime in the World Today 2014," the second annual symposium and panel discussion to address cybercrime threats and trends, in the Schimmel Theatre on Pace University's NYC Campus.

    The term “cybercrime” often conjures up the image of a rogue hacker, hiding away behind a computer screen, attempting to crack the digital code that protects the Fort Knox of databases. But, the truth is, we expose ourselves to the hazards of cybercrime each time we open our wallets. This symposium unveils groundbreaking skimmer research by Pace University Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems chair and lecturer Darren Hayes, DPS, in the wake of sophisticated data security threat, including the recent Target breach.

    Panelists and speakers include:

    Vincent Tophoff, Senior Technical Manager, International Federation of Accountants;
    Charles F. Gilgen, Supervisory Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation;
    Bernadette Gleason, North America eCrime Laboratory Manager at Citi; and
    Robert A. Zandoli, Senior VP, Global Chief Information Security Officer at AIG.
    Associate Dean and Director of Special Programs and Projects at the Seidenberg School

    Jonathan Hill, DPS, moderates; VP of Strategic Initiatives Robert GM Keating and Executive District Attorney and Chief of the Investigation Division David Szuchman deliver remarks.
