Cybercrime in the World Today 2014


Amid increasing threats facing cyber security across the globe, ACCA USA, the US arm of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, and Pace University will convene the second annual cybercrime symposium and panel discussion.

The event, “Cybercrime in the World Today 2014,” will bring together several hundred business and law enforcement professionals, academics, students and members of the public.

Joining moderator Jonathan Hill, Associate Dean and Director of Special Programs and Projects at Pace University, will be Vincent Tophoff, senior technical manager, International Federation of Accountants; Charles F. Gilgen, Supervisory Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation; Carlos Hoyos, who leads IBM’s CIO Security Lab; and, Bernadette Gleason, North America eCrime Laboratory Manager at Citi.

In addition, Pace University President Stephen Friedman and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance will deliver remarks.

At the event, Pace and ACCA will unveil new research by Pace Computer Information Systems Program chair and lecturer Darren Hayes, a leading expert in the field of computer forensics and security, on the specialized area of skimmer fraud. The event will provide business leaders and law enforcement officials with a clearer understanding of the technologies, methods and origins behind this widespread – and growing - form of cybercrime.

Some of the world’s largest accounting firms, banks and credit card companies, as well as law enforcement organizations in the U.S. and Europe, worked with Pace University researchers to provide insight and data.

The event takes place at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts, Pace University, 3 Spruce Street (off Spruce Street), Lower Manhattan, on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, with a reception at 8:00 AM and the event from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM. For more information, visit
