Hacktivism the use of legal and/or illegal digital tools and techniques in the pursuit of political or social ends is a growing threat to the wide variety of businesses involved in the processing of electronic payments. Reich, a well-known risk management and security expert in the hosting market, will help conference attendees understand who hacktivists are, what motivates them, what they try to do, and how companies can reduce their risks of falling victim to hacktivism. Reich will also show how hacktivism is not a narrow internet security issue but rather a broader threat to businesses and their reputations.

Incorporate to buy a multifamily property?

Question by lithium630: Incorporate to buy a multifamily property?
Is it true you should put each multifamily (4 family or less) under a different corporation?

Best answer:

Answer by teenriodoll
YES!!!! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!

Unless this is a quick flip for profit and even then I would put the property in the name of an LLC=Limited liability Corporation or a limited parntership. The reason is simple. Taxes and liability. Once you are in the chain of title you CAN be sued, even after you sell the property. But if the owner was a throwaway LLC then you are less likely to be sued.

Example, I was looking to purchase a property years ago. Did a title search and found the second deed of trust on the house had this long disclaimer about EPA and environmental. I did some research and found that if the property had a EPA cleanup problem, nothing prevents the U.S. Government from collecting from a former owner ever!!! Even filing bankruptcy does not wipe out an EPA claim.

Also, i bought a house with a partner who did not want to spend the money to form a LLC. I insisted or no deal. We put in LLC and two things happened. One the property had the plastic PVC piping problem that our buyer wanted us to replace all the pipes in a single family home that we were selling for $ 200,000. The cost $ 40,000. We said no. The eventual purchaser asked for and we agreed to a radon test. Well the property HAD RADON!!! Luckily we found an expert paid $ 800.00 and remidated the problem. I kept the LLC did 3 more deals in it and closed the company. I am not personally liable on this property and since the LLC has no assets there is not a likelihood of suit ever in the future. If we were in the chain of title individually, we would could be liable in the future from a future buyer. DONT BUY WITHOUT protecting yourself. You will sooner or later get sued. It is better to have in LLC or LLP then your own name. Enough said on liabilty issues.

Next, let’s talk about tax advantages. In many states you can have a one person LLC. Or be creative. another business or a family member or friend can be members in the Limited Liability Corporation. You can write off more and also maintain control by doing it this way. You do not have to report on Schedule-E instead you get a K-1 and the IRS has said that they audit K-1 less than filers with entries on Schedule-E.

So do it right. THis multi family could be lucrative for you. Set it up right.

Thanks and good luck with your investing.

Is bachelor degree in supply chain management at ashford university worth it?

Question by Choupasta: Is bachelor degree in supply chain management at ashford university worth it?
Just need some suggestions and reviews..tried to look for reviews online for this, but have not find any..and also needs to know how many classes do you need to take with ashford online to be full time student with one(3 credits) on ground class.

Best answer:

Answer by Betsy
Ashford is a for-profit school and such schools should be avoided. Although it is regionally accredited, the accreditation may have come with the school when the school was purchased from the Sisters of St. Francis. The regional accrediting agencies are changing their policies allowing companies to get accreditation when they purchase campuses from other schools, skipping the accreditation process.

Below is a link to the Wikipedia article on Ashford. Be sure to read the section title “U.S. Department of Education Audit.”

You might also want to google “Ashford University scam,” and read some of the material you find.

Almost every state has at least one public college offering a bachelor’s degree in this area. I’d suggest that you find one in your state. You can get a better education there. You will also end up paying less. Your tuition and living expenses combined will probably be less than tuition alone at Ashford. If you really must take online courses, then talk with the public college about courses they might be offering online.

Two New Practical Guides Explain How to Tackle Business Continuity Management Challenges

Ely, England (PRWEB UK) 17 May 2013

ISO22301 and business continuity management (BCM) come under the microscope in two new titles from specialist publisher IT Governance Publishing ( (ITGP).

A Managers Guide to ISO22301, by established author and operational risk management and business continuity expert Tony Drewitt, provides a comprehensive guide to understanding BCM and ISO22301. Drewitt has helped small, medium and large organisations develop their BCM policies, strategies and plans since 2001.

Offering a concise and practical overview of the subject, A Managers Guide to ISO22301 is essential reading for all managers, executives and directors with any interest or involvement in operational risk or business continuity management.

Drewitt says: You cant start planning to deal with disaster when disaster is striking. Once it occurs, operational risk – the risk of the unexpected disrupting your business – can be wide-ranging, with effects that extend from financial loss all the way through to catastrophic business failure.

The emergence of the ISO22301 international standard for business continuity, together with a certification scheme, puts management and customers in a position where they can look for evidence that their company, and its supply chain, is genuinely prepared and in a state of overall readiness. Thanks to the fact that ISO22301 is a specification, users are also provided with a set of standard requirements when conducting an audit.

Drewitt has also authored a second new title from ITGP, entitled ISO22301 – A Pocket Guide. The book offers a brief compendium of expert advice on how to satisfy the requirements of ISO22301.

Dedicated to helping readers understand business continuity international practice and what they might need to do to develop a fit-for-purpose BCM system, the work provides the essentials of BCM in a nutshell.

Drewitt says: ISO22301 gives the what but not the how of BCM. The Pocket Guide provides a top-level insight into what is required to develop world-class BCM capability and will help readers to decide when to embark on the development of a BCM system.

A Managers Guide to ISO22301 can be ordered online, in multiple formats, at (UK) and at (US). ISO22301 – A Pocket Guide can be ordered online at (UK) and at (US).
