KnowBe4 Founder Designates Five Tiers of Security Awareness Training as Spammers Capitalize on Syria Mayhem
by BWW News Desk - Sep 30, 2013

TAMPA BAY, Fla., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Cybercriminals are known to exploit and prey upon the heartstrings of Americans during times of unease or tragedy—the recent Boston Marathon bombing led to an outpouring of scam emails and fake charity websites designed to swindle concerned citizens out of their money and personal information (1).  Despite some IT professionals dismissing the idea of security awareness training where individuals are taught to recognize and avoid cyberattacks, Internet security awareness training firm KnowBe4 not only deems security training to be a necessity, but has established the five types of security training and details which is most effective.

BWW Reviews: 3-D Theatricals Offers Up a Gorgeous FUNNY GIRL, Ends 9/29
by Michael L. Quintos - Sep 27, 2013

Woo-Hoo! Thanks to OC's 3-D Theatricals, Southern California wasn't deprived of a revival of FUNNY GIRL after all. And, gosh, to top it off, they've even managed to find a Fanny Brice audiences can genuinely admire: Broadway and MAD TV alum Nicole Parker.

Review Roundup: ANNA NICOLE: THE OPERA
by Review Roundups - Sep 19, 2013

ANNA NICOLE tells the story of Anna Nicole Smith, a small-town Texas waitress (and later, exotic dancer) in pursuit of the American Dream. Smith wed an octogenarian billionaire and became a Playboy model and tabloid celebrity, living a life of excess and substance abuse under the constant glare of the media until her death at the age of 39.

BWW Reviews: ANNA NICOLE's 36DDs Gain AAA Status with New York City Opera at BAM's Next Wave Festival
by Richard Sasanow - Sep 19, 2013

With a story that is somehow poignant despite its scatological language, ANNA NICOLE's heroine is nicer than Berg's LULU, less lucky than TRAVIATA's Violetta and more cunning than MANON's Manon (though maybe not MANON LESCAUT's). Whatever she is, Anna Nicole Smith is definitely a full-fledged operatic heroine. As portrayed by American soprano Sarah Joy Miller in the local premiere of the Marc-Anthony Turnage-Richard Thomas work about the life and times of minor celebrity Smith, this is a wildly entertaining evening. The opera, which debuted two years ago in London, opened on September 17 at Brooklyn Academy of Music, compliments of New York City Opera and BAM's Next Wave Festival, directed by Richard Jones.

Consumers Taking Credit Card Anti-Fraud Measures Into Their Own Hands; Don't Feel Merchants Are Heeding Call
by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2013

PALO ALTO, CA - According to the new Jumio Consumer Insights Study: Fraud and Identity released today by Jumio, Inc. and conducted online by Harris Interactive, Americans may be ASKING merchants to tighten-up fraud protection practices, but they don't feel merchants are taking the necessary steps to protect both their customers and themselves. The study finds that over two in five Americans (44%) have chosen not to sign the back of their credit or debit cards, instead writing 'see ID' or leaving it blank. This activity signals a consumer desire to have merchants verify their IDs, acting as a homegrown security measure created by consumers, rather than merchants or providers. However, the tactic is not achieving its intended outcome, as 87% of respondents report that a majority of the time that they make a purchase with their credit or debit card, they are not asked to present proof of their ID.

BWW Reviews: Farcical Funny Musical Blood Bath at Blank Canvas
by Roy Berko - Oct 15, 2013

As audience members smilingly walked out of Blank Canvas's THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MUSICAL! covered with spatterings of stage blood, I could only think that something appears to have gone off-course in Cleveland theatre. On stage at local venues are the blood revenge musical, SWEENEY TODD, as well as the story of the maniacal murderous RICHARD III. Then there is the burning up of a boy and the live burial of his mother in LILIES at convergence continuum. Now, I had just seen a psycho killer who uses a chainsaw, knives, hammers and baseball bats to bludgeon his victims. Victims who sing gleefully about their demise. (more...)

BWW Interviews: Scott RC Levy, Max Ferguson and Cory Moosman Discuss Fine Arts Center's THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
by Christi Esterle - May 9, 2013

Starting today, the Fine Arts Center is delivering a love letter to musical comedy with The Drowsy Chaperone, a show the New York Times praised as 'a revved-up spoof of a 1920s song-and-dance frolic.'
