2015 GWTAN Spring Colloquium: The Upside of Downtime

6:00pm Reception: 6th Floor Lobby, Duques Hall
2201 G Street NW, Washington DC 20052 (Entrance on 22nd Street between G and H Street)

The number of vacation days Americans take each year has been declining over the decades. According to the U.S. Travel Association (USTA),  American workers failed to use a total of 429 million days of paid time off (PTO) last year. This unused leave costs the U.S. economy $160 billion in spending that could support 1.2 million jobs not only in travel and transportation but also in multiple other industries, ranging from retail to manufacturing.

Over the last two years, the travel industry has rallied around USTA’s initiative, Project: Time Off, which aims to shift culture so that using time off is not considered frivolous, but essential to increasing productivity, improving personal health and strengthening families. It focuses on vacation time as a business investment with proven returns and an economic necessity.

Join GWTAN for the 2015 Colloquium to hear Katie Denis, Senior Director of Project: Time Off for the U.S. Travel Association, speak about this trend, the reasons behind it and what we as an industry and individuals can do to change the mindset of our overwhelmed culture.

This event is open to all GW Alumni and current graduate students

The role of Corporate Directors in dealing with cybersecurity risks

Join us!

Register Here

The program will focus on the role of Corporate Directors in dealing with cybersecurity risks. Cyber attacks on companies have been increasing in number, cost, and impact on companies and their customers. As a result, the role of corporate boards in overseeing the risk to their companies has required more focus by Directors on cyberseurity risks. In particular, Boards have had to enhance their understanding of how cyber attacks can occur; what the possible legal, financial, and reputational risks are to their company; what the company does to fend off the attackers; how well the company is positioned to mitigate quickly any attack that does occur; and when and how a breach needs to be disclosed to customers and shareholders. This increased cybersecurity threat presents a new challenge for directors.

The panel will include corporate directors and cybersecurity experts. Topics to be addressed include what directors need to know about cyber vulnerabilities in general and about cyber attacks that occur in their company and their industry, what information directors should expect to see in what time frame, and how to stay up to date on this ever evolving risk. This program should be of particular interest to students of general business, of corporate and securities law, and of information technology.
