It saddens me to share the news that Mark Bosakowski passed away last weekend. From the good ol’ OS/2 Boca days until days ago, Boz contributed C/C++ & Java excellence, with bountiful deadpan humor, to colleagues and friends all along the way. We’ll miss you my friend.
Condolences to wife Josephine, son Matt and sister Barbara.

We are finishing the term and 12 of our Masters students completing the final course, Capstone in Information Security Management Project (http://cec.nova.edu/~levyy/ISEC695/
) on April 13, will preform their end-of-the term project presentations, before graduating. The projects are vary from technical to managerial on cybersecurity risk management analysis with proposed solutions to small organizations in South Florida, where students conducted these projects voluntarily in assisting the companies improve their cybersecurity posture. Students were teamed in groups of two, and here are the six titles of the projects:
- “Mitigating Identity Theft and Business Email Compromise in a Gym”
- “Mitigating the Risk of Network Attacks via Public Non-Secured WiFi Network at a Local Beauty Salon”
- “Mitigating PII Leakage at a Federal Gun Store and Pawn Shop”
- “Mitigating Cybersecurity Risks in a Small Garden Store’s E-commerce Operation”
- “Mitigation of Data Breaches Through the Increased Overall Cybersecurity Posture of an Insurance Company”

On Wednesday, April 13th, 2016 from 9am to 12noon, the students (teams of two) will be conducting their end-of the term capstone projects presentations. Most will present locally on-campus, while few will connect remotely online via online conferencing to the lab. We are going to meet on-campus in Davie, in our Mobile Computing Lab (MC Lab) – Room 4032, which is in the DeSantis Building (3301 College Avenue, Davie/Fort Lauderdale, FL 33314).
Coffee at 8:45am, and official presentations will start at 9am.
We are welcoming any companies and/or recruiter who wish to observe first-hand quality cybersecurity professionals for the event, you are more than welcome to share this note with applicable individuals, as some of these students are going to be on the market in the next few weeks for cyber jobs, some more technical, while others are more managerial. Many have significant prior experiences as they are in their masters degree.
Twenty-five years ago, you just didn’t let people know you were into meditation.
“They would have thought you were a hippie or a weirdo, and that wouldn’t be a great way to get employed,” said Michelle Goebel, an aspiring professional at the time.
So Goebel kept it to herself. Until she used it to start a business.
Today, Goebel works as a meditation coach for many South Florida executives who want to relieve stress and bring more clarity and creativity to their work. Goebel, 52, learned the practice after a serious car accident in 1991.
Alex Funkhouser, president of Sherlock Talent in Miami Beach, has been working with Goebel on deep meditation practice for nine months.
“I felt comfortable with her because of her community involvement and her knowledge of technology,” said Funkhouser, who meditates twice a day for 30 minutes. “We talk about how meditation is like a technology itself, a technology for the brain.”
