Bryan Stevenson named Law School’s graduation speaker

first_img Read Full Story Bryan Stevenson J.D./M.P.P. ’85, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative and best-selling author of “Just Mercy,” will be the speaker for the Harvard Law School Class of 2020’s graduation ceremonies. The school’s virtual celebration will occur on May 28, with an on-campus ceremony to take place at a date to be announced.In 1989, Stevenson founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a human rights organization in Montgomery, Ala., with the initial aim of providing free legal help to inmates facing capital sentences in Alabama. For more than 30 years, he and EJI have defended countless individuals facing capital punishment and juveniles prosecuted as adults, while also working to address systemic issues of mass incarceration, excessive sentences, and racial bias in the criminal justice system. He has argued and won multiple cases at the Supreme Court of the United States, including a 2019 ruling invalidating the imposition of capital punishment on those with dementia and a landmark 2012 decision holding unconstitutional mandatory sentences of life-imprisonment-without-parole for those 17 or younger. He and EJI staff have won reversals or release from prison for more than 135 wrongly condemned individuals on death row and won relief for hundreds of others wrongly convicted or unfairly sentenced.Stevenson has also led the creation of two highly acclaimed cultural sites which opened in 2018, The Legacy Museum and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice. The new national landmark institutions chronicle the legacy of slavery, lynching and racial segregation and the connection to mass incarceration and contemporary issues of racial bias.Stevenson’s work has won him national acclaim. In 1995, he was awarded the prestigious MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Prize; the ABA Medal, the American Bar Association’s highest honor; the National Medal of Liberty from the American Civil Liberties Union, after he was nominated by United States Supreme Court Justice John Stevens; the Public Interest Lawyer of the Year by the National Association of Public Interest Lawyers; and the Olof Palme Prize, for international human rights.He has received more than 40 honorary doctoral degrees, including degrees from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, and Oxford University.His award-winning memoir “Just Mercy,” which examines systemic racism in the criminal justice system through his clients’ stories, was published in 2014 and quickly became a New York Times Bestseller. It was named by Time Magazine as one of the 10 Best Books of Nonfiction for 2014 and has been awarded several honors including the Carnegie Medal by the American Library Association for the best nonfiction book of 2015 and a 2015 NAACP Image Award. “Just Mercy” was recently adapted as a major motion picture, starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.After graduating from Harvard with both a J.D. from the law school and a master’s in public policy from the Kennedy School, Stevenson began representing capital defendants and individuals on death row in the deep south, as a staff attorney with the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta.For more information about Harvard Law School’s Commencement activities, see the law school’s commencement website.last_img read more

Ransomware Recovery and Cyber-Resilience: Lessons from the Front Lines

first_imgMalicious cyberattacks are commonplace within our constantly transforming IT world. It should be well known by now that even with an all-encompassing strategy complete with best-in-class breach detection and prevention and data security technology, the likelihood of a successful cyberattack is still possible. The urgent question IT Directors and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are now asking their teams is, “How cyber-resilient is my organization?”.While a heavy portion of an IT team’s efforts are dedicated to instituting attack prevention technology, promoting good IT hygiene among and trying to stop bad things from happening, organizations should also plan for incident response and overall cyber-resilience.When a successful attack happens, from a people and process perspective, is everybody on the team aware of their role? What do those roles entail? Does the current infrastructure enable the team and organization for successful incident response and recovery?Another aspect to carefully consider is involving cross-functional members of the business in the planning and response, as the damage from cyberattacks are often far stretching and are just as much of a business problem as an IT problem. In fact, a custom research study conducted by ESG for RSA in June 2018 found that 69 percent of respondents agreed that the relationship between IT security and business risk can be difficult to coordinate.In this video, hear more from Dell EMC’s Product Manager for Cyber Recovery Stefan Voss about the different approaches required to effectively respond to cyber-attack incidents:Dell EMC Cyber Recovery Software Recovering data from a cyberattack requires a different approach vs. typical disaster recovery. The goal of cyber incident response is to ultimately get the organization back to an optimal, steady state as quickly as possible. Ultimately, when blindly applying already existing Disaster Recovery or Operational Recovery procedures and plans, they will quickly show their low success rate in cyber-attack situations and scenarios.Understanding this led us to announce the Dell EMC Cyber Recovery solution, an easy-to-deploy management and automation software, in October 2018. We have applied strengths in our portfolio to address this specific requirement with a unique architecture that provides true data isolation and flexibility for our customers. Customers have responded very positively to this, with one saying he can sleep better at night knowing his data is safe.See Cyber Recovery in Action at RSA ConferenceStop by the Dell Technologies booth #4535 at the RSA Conference next week to see a demo and speak with a data protection expert about how you can help your organization and business become truly cyber-resilient. Cyber Resilience and Incident Response planning will be a heavy discussion topic at the RSA Conference panel session “Ransomware Attack Protection and Recovery: Lessons from the Front Lines,” including our own Stefan Voss, senior director, product management, Dell EMC. You can reserve a seat via the link above and make sure it is part of your RSA Conference agenda.We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco at RSA Conference 2019!If you would like to learn more about Dell EMC Cyber Recovery software in the meantime, visit Dell EMC Cyber Recovery.last_img read more

The huge, high-end home is in a prestigious pocket of Kirwan and borders the golf course. 18 Macquarie St, Jensen.HIGH-end buyers with $1 million to splash on Townsville property are being told to buy now with value for money at the high end of the market at its peak.Agents are warning that while now it’s easy to snap up a luxury home for below replacement cost, that is likely to change as the market improves.In Sydney $1 million will buy only a small one or two bedroom apartment in many suburbs, while in Townsville a buyer could nab a luxuriously appointed, expansive house in some of Townsville’s most desirable locations.Keyes & Co principal and REIQ regional director Damien Keyes said many locals were taking advantage of the softening market and upgrading to homes that otherwise would be out of their reach.“The broader market’s general softening has brought a sense of reality and all owners, especially in the higher end, are pricing properties well to attract buyers,” he said.“There is a lot of upgrading going on by local professionals and families because when the market turns those higher end homes will be harder to get for a good price.”Mr Keyes is selling 28 Chapman St, which was renovated by the owners as their dream home, and it’s for sale for below the renovation costs. 54 Guilfoyle Circuit, KirwanMs Chandler said homes such as this one would soon go up in price if high-end buyers did not act quickly.“Buy before prices start going up,” she said.“We are seeing more buyers, but prices haven’t actually risen yet. If they don’t buy now they are going to end up missing out on some really good property deals.”Ray White agent Julie Mahoney, who regularly sells homes for over $1 million, said there was great value for money at the high end of the market but that could soon change.“Terry Ryder (Hotspotting founder) has just named Townsville one of the top 10 places to buy in and there are of course buyers from Sydney and Melbourne looking at regional areas,” she said. “People are also looking at the lifestyle here and … they say how relaxed it is here and in the age of technology and being upwardly mobile, people can do business from anywhere.”last_img read more

Guyana Softball Cup hailed as a success … Tournament organisers happy with hosting

first_img“EXCITING”, “action packed” and “well organised” are just some adjectives used to describe the Guyana Softball Cup 6.The three-day tournament which ended on Sunday night was hosted by the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) and featured 24 teams from both Guyana and North America who battled it out for softball cricket supremacy.Ultimately, Floodlights and Speedboat XI claimed the title of champions in the Masters and Open categories respectively.Ricky Deonarine Ricky DeonarineChronicle Sport was able to speak with vice-president of the GFSCA who is also captain of the Floodlights team, Ricky Deonarine who gave his input on the tournament’s hosting.According to Deonarine, “There is always room for improvement but the tournament’s hosting was a success except for the hiccups. Unfortunate things happened and we have to sit as a group and talk about them,” said Deonarine.The hiccups that were mentioned by Deonarine included the delay of the final games on Sunday by two hours. This delay led to the tournament concluding after midnight.“Our intention was to finish the game at 22.00hrs but the circumstances were beyond our control which caused the games to start 2 hours late,” said Deonarine before sating “We would have finished at 22:00hrs and with the presentation ceremony included the latest we would have gone was 23.00hrs.”It is no secret that the highest level of softball cricket played in Guyana is seen at the Guyana Softball Cup.It was with this is mind Deonarine laid out a challenge. “All the people who criticised Softball Cup 6 we encourage them to host a tournament and do even better than we did.”Also impressed with the hosting of the tournament was manager of the Ontario Masters’ team Azeem Karmat Khan.Khan who is also the president of the Softball Masters League in Toronto stated, “You can’t please everyone.
