Cyber Security: An Issue that Keeps on Growing

Tuesday, February 2, 2016
6:00 pm

NOTE OUR NEW LOCATION!
Baker Hostetler
45 Rockefeller Plaza

Our Host: Dennis Cohen


Cyber security is an issue that only grows in every corner of our global garden.  Some would say it is an invasive weed with no herbicide in sight.

Every day, we face headlines in the media, from government agencies, our corporate governance departments and companies that tell us they have software to stop the problems. At every turn, there is an atmosphere of apprehension and trepidation.

What can a company do to guard itself and its clients? Can we stop the malicious organizations that steal our data, listen and gain access to our conversations and compromise the integrity of our business operations?

A panel of experts from various cyber related industry sectors will offer their perspectives and knowledge on this vital issue:

  • Chris Moschovitis, tmg-emedia, strategies and practices
  • Galya Datskovsky, Vapor Stream, products
  • Shawn Bernabeu, HUB International, insurance
  • Jerry Ferguson, Baker Hostetler, law

Our moderator will be Anna Murray of tmg-emedia, who specializes in software development.

This is an opportunity for attendees to listen to industry leaders who have a deep understanding of the ways in which business managers can defend and protect their organizations in the continual struggle with cyber security issues.

We look forward to seeing you at our new venue.

Please reply to this email or to RSVP@TMGR.COM to let us know you plan to attend.

How 3D Printing Will Rock Your World

with John Hornick

July 7, 6:00 pm, Yale Club

JohnHornick Photo3D printers are the most powerful machines humans have ever invented because they can make finished products, with all their parts, fully assembled.

Driven by a digital blueprint of the finished product, they do so by building up layer upon layer of plastic, metal, or other materials, which are fused with heat, lasers, electron beams, chemicals, ultrasound, or glue.

John Hornick, a prominent IP lawyer, explains where this disruptive technology stands today and where it is going, and how everything will change when you can make anything. Highlights include:

• the Disruption Checklist, which shows how business and personal life will change
• the effects of 3D printing on the ability to make almost anything without anyone knowing about it or being able to control it
• how the human drive to make things will help drive adoption of this technology
• how 3D printing will lead to the merger of science and nature in product design
• how and why 3D printing could replace mass production with mass customization
• how 3D printing may lead to new kinds of crime

John Hornick has been a counselor and litigator in the Washington, D.C. office of the Finnegan IP law firm for over 30 years. John advises clients about how 3D printing may affect their businesses and frequently speaks and writes on 3D printing. He was the only IP attorney selected by the U.S. Comptroller General Forum on Additive Manufacturing.

We look forward to seeing you at the Yale Club.  Please check with the front desk on the exact meeting location when you arrive.

It Does Matter: The Details of Self-Presentation Are the Message

with Oona Chanel 

April 7, 6:00 pm

1cbcde2Everyone in business is always in front of people who can and do make a difference in our professional lives. Much of their impressions is based on our self-presentation.

Studies show that business people who dress to represent themselves as managers of a particular business sector provide the best cues that they are authentic and believable.

Oona Chanel is a renowned expert in the discipline of self-presentation. She will demonstrate how visual signals impact corporate decision makers, team members, prospective clients, employees and the media.

Details are telling. And that does not mean expensive jewelry or hair styles. More often, small and simple things can make a big difference in the eyes of those around us.

Oona has the creds: high end runway editorial model, serial entrepreneur, and internationally acclaimed fashion consultant who has worked for major European fashion houses.

Recently, Oona founded and is the Editor-in-Chief of a new fashion magazine to be published by Scandinavian Media Ventures.
