Key Features and Benefits

The report provides detailed analysis of the market for cyber security during 2013-2023, including the factors that influence the reasons countries are investing or cutting defense expenditure. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.

Historically, most of the expenditure in this sector is generated by the private sector, yet government spending has witnessed a robust increase in the recent past; the US’s private and public sector spending is almost the same, pegged at US$ 94 billion over the next 10 years. The UK has also made cyber security a tier one priority by allocating an additional US$ 800 million for various cyber security initiatives in its 2010 strategic defense and security review (SDSR); the government is expected to spend close to US$ 6 billion on cyber security over the next 10 years. Similarly countries in the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America are also expected to ramp up spending on cyber security during the forecast period.

Key Market Issues

It is very important for cyber security providers to identify the source of malware so that similar patterns can be tracked and observed for flaws, and a proper response to the attack can be delivered without causing undue inconvenience to the entire cyberspace community. This challenge stems from the fact that the cyber security institutional eco-system which consists of a broad set of international, national, and private organizations has unclear and overlapping boundaries.

Cyber weapons are in their infancy and are expected to rapidly evolve over the next decade. Therefore, nations are currently dedicating increasing resources at the executive policy level as well as at the private sector level, in order to deal with complex cyber threats. These resources have been well utilized as is evident from the innovations in cyber defense technologies, but as these mechanisms become commercially available and their mode of operation is scrutinized, attackers will develop more advanced cyber weapon technologies to deal with advanced defenses.

Key Highlights

At the cyber-security world summit held in 2010, security experts raised credible issues such as crashing power grids, stalled air control towers, hospital infrastructure being rendered useless, and national defenses being susceptible to outside attack. New technologies such as cloud computing, social networking, and the proliferation of mobile devices have also resulted in an increase of cyber attacks. The governments of the UK, the US, France, Belgium, Germany, and India have stated that their systems and networks were infiltrated by criminal networks. Such incidents are expected to augment a sustainable demand for cyber security over the forecast period

The militaries of most countries have always enjoyed a certain degree of autonomy, but they are not immune from the economic uncertainties that face governments. With budget cuts being implemented, many countries are looking to channel their resources towards certain areas of military spending. For example the US is looking to phase out tanks and other major weapons programs and divert its spending towards IT and cyber security programs.

18. Economic Impact of Population Growth

Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) 1) Population in China: Until recently, Chinese families did not much alter their fertility depending on life events like deaths of children. However, under government prodding and eventually coercion, fertility drops drastically in China in the 1970s, but, to counteract momentum, the One-Child Policy starts in 1979-80. 2) Population Growth and Economic Development: In Asia, rapid fertility drops have preceded economic booms by ~15 years. In this time, children grow up and become workers. With many workers and fewer children to support, savings and investments rise causing the boom. Non-Asian countries with rapid fertility drops, like Ireland, fit this model. Sub-Saharan Africa, with still high fertility, makes little economic progress. 00:00 – Chapter 1.

Harbor Point Spurs Stamford?s Economic Growth with Thousands of New Jobs

Harbor Point Spurs Stamford’s Economic Growth with Thousands of New Jobs

Harbor Point View

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) March 11, 2012

The ongoing success of Harbor Point continues to have a strong positive economic impact on Stamford, creating of thousands of new jobs as the South End undergoes its remarkable transformation from abandoned industrial sites into a vibrant new mixed-use community.

“As Harbor Point’s new buildings have risen, dozens of new businesses have opened and hundreds of new residents have moved in. This has brought approximately 2,000 full-time jobs to Stamford so far, along with thousands of construction jobs since the project began,” reports Carl Kuehner III, CEO of Building and Land Technology, the Stamford-based real estate developer of Harbor Point. “On top of these, additional jobs have been supported or created from the influx of new business tenants and residents who are now a part of Stamford.”

Stamford Mayor, Michael Pavia, also notes the significant impact of Harbor Point on the City’s economy. “In the midst of the worst economic downturn in 50 years, BLT’s development of Harbor Point has been an essential component of Stamford’s economic growth and strength. The size and scope of the Harbor Point investment make a compelling statement – Stamford is open for business. Clearly, it remains the pre-eminent place for the growth and development of businesses and is one of the most attractive destinations to live and work on the east coast.”

Construction jobs have been generated not only by Harbor Point’s new commercial and residential buildings, but also by the construction or rebuilding of the much of the South End’s streets and utility infrastructure, all done at no cost to the City. The fees and additional tax revenue generated by Harbor Point have also had a positive financial impact in reducing the tax burden on Stamford taxpayers.

Harbor Point has attracted a wide range of new office tenants to Stamford including Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Design Within Reach, Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy, and the U.S. Government. Starwood Hotels & Resorts alone brought over 800 new jobs to Stamford. Eleven new retailers have become part of Harbor Point in recent months, including Connecticut’s only Fairway Market, Dinosaur BarBQue, Exhale Spas, Walgreens, Le Pain Quotidien, First Niagara Bank, Design Within Reach, Harlan Social, Robek’s, and Go Green Dry Cleaners. All of these new office tenants and businesses are helping to create a diverse economic base for Stamford and an enormous number of jobs in a variety of sectors.

A tremendous opportunity for the Stamford job market, the opening of Fairway Market in Harbor Point created approximately 450 new positions at this one-of-a-kind, industry-leading specialty and traditional grocer. At nearly 85,000 square feet, the Connecticut store is the company’s largest to date and includes a wine and spirits store, a full kitchen, an 80-seat café, and a wide variety of specialty departments. “The jobs created here include not only stock clerks and cashiers, but also butchers, bakers, chefs, and other skilled positions that we provide specialized training for,” reports Aaron Fleishaker, Fairway Market’s Senior Vice President of Real Estate and Construction. “Fairway is a fully unionized employer offering great benefits. We’re very loyal to our staff, and as a result, our employees stay with us for a long time, often being promoted to higher-level positions within the company. Some of our current managers started out as hourly employees in our stores.”

Numerous job fairs were held at various local venues as part of Fairway Market’s hiring process. Most of the new positions created at Fairway were filled with residents from in and around the community. Over 200 were filled in collaboration with non-profit community-based agencies including CTE that have developed networks with area businesses to connect them with low-to-moderate-income local residents who are qualified job candidates, often working with clients who are transitioning from public assistance to viable jobs.

“Harbor Point has given an enormous boost to Stamford’s economy, especially in this formerly underserved part of the City,” said Treva Franks, Director of Workforce Development at CTE. “The unprecedented job opportunities it’s created have done so much for the community.” Ms. Franks has worked to build strong, lasting relationships with Harbor Point businesses including the new Fairway Market, for which she helped coordinate three job fairs. Having worked with CTE since 2007, she sees Harbor Point’s success all the more remarkable in light of the significant economic challenges and job losses faced around the region and the nation. Adds Ms. Franks, “Harbor Point has redefined the City.”

Wendy Champeix, Director of Employment and Education Services at Laurel House for the past twelve years, also notes the key contribution of Harbor Point to Stamford’s job growth, particularly in its creation of diverse career opportunities outside of the financial industry. “What Harbor Point has been able to accomplish is amazing,” said Ms. Champeix, “growing and bringing in new businesses and jobs – so much is happening there. Stamford is really the only city in Connecticut that has been able to grow continually, and Harbor Point has been an integral part of that. The difference is clearly visible here, while other cities in the state struggle with abandoned buildings and properties.”

She also sees the importance of job creation in conjunction with the creation of quality housing, which has made Harbor Point such an important catalyst for positive change in the area. “That’s something for everyone to be thrilled about.” She looks forward to continuing to expand a job placement network with Harbor Point businesses – meeting with business owners, collaborating with other agencies, and holding job fairs.

With new businesses arriving at Harbor Point all the time, the continuing contribution to Stamford’s job growth remains assured in this thriving new community which has already become a resounding success and an integral part of the City.

Green Building Growth Highlights Consultant?s Top Ten Trends for 2010

Green Building Growth Highlights Consultant’s Top Ten Trends for 2010

Faculty Offices, Cal Poly State U., CA

Tucson, AZ (Vocus) January 6, 2010

Green building industry leader, Jerry Yudelson says that green building will continue to grow in spite of the global credit crisis and the ongoing economic recession in most countries. The green building consultant published his annual Top Ten list of green building trends, which included this and other insights.

“What we’re seeing is that more people are going green each year, and there is nothing on the horizon that will stop this trend,” explains Jerry Yudelson, the principal of Tucson-based green building consulting company, Yudelson Associates. “In putting together my Top Ten trends for 2010, I’m taking advantage of conversations I’ve had with green building industry leaders in the U.S., Canada, Germany and Australia as I have traveled the world over the past year.”

Yudelson’s Top Ten Green Building Trends include:

1. Green building will continue to grow more than 60 percent in 2010, using new LEED project registrations as a proxy, on a cumulative basis. “We’ve seen cumulative growth in new LEED projects over 60 percent per year since 2006, in fact 80 percent in 2009, and there’s no sign that the green wave has crested,” he said.

2. Green building will benefit from the Obama presidency and the strongly Democratic Congress, with a continued focus on green jobs gained by applying incentives energy efficiency, new green technologies and renewable energy. This trend will last for the foreseeable future.

3. The focus of the green building industry will continue to switch from new buildings to greening existing buildings. “The fastest growing LEED rating system in 2009 was the LEED for Existing Buildings program, and I expect this trend to continue in 2010,” said Yudelson. My 2009 book, Greening Existing Buildings, documents the strategic components of this trend.

4. Awareness of the coming global crisis in fresh water supply will increase, leading building designers and managers to take further steps to reduce water consumption in buildings with more conserving fixtures, rainwater recovery systems and innovative new water technologies. “My forthcoming book, Dry Run: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis, shows how this is being done in green buildings all over the U.S.”

5. The green building movement will go global, as more countries begin to create their own green building incentives and developing their own Green Building Councils. More than 30 countries, on all continents, will show considerable green building growth in 2010.

6. Solar power use in buildings will accelerate with the prospect of increasing utility focus on state-level renewable power standards (RPS) for 2015 and 2020. As before, third-party financing partnerships will continue to grow and provide capital for large rooftop systems.

7. Local governments will step up their mandates for green buildings for both themselves and the private sector. We’ll see at least 20 major new cities with commercial sector green building mandates. The desire to reduce carbon emissions by going green will lead more government agencies to require green buildings.

8. Zero-net-energy designs for new buildings become increasingly commonplace, in both residential and commercial sectors, as LEED and ENERGY STAR ratings become too common to confer competitive advantage.

9. The retail sector will embrace green building, especially green operations. I call this trend, ‘shop green ‘til you drop, says Yudelson. “More retailers are becoming conscious of the need for both operational green measures and greening the supply chain.”

10. European green building technologies will become better known and more widely adopted in the U.S. and Canada. “My 2009 book, Green Building Trends: Europe, has helped to accelerate this trend, along with an increasing number of European architects and engineers, who are opening offices in the U.S.”

11. A bonus pick: Yudelson adds “Campus sustainability plans and actions will become the defining trend in higher education,” as more than 800 leading educational institutions race to embrace a thorough response to climate change.

Hiring a Placement Agent to Market Mezzanine Capital and Growth Equity Investors

A placement agent is a financial firm who act as an intermediary in the world of fundraising. Sometimes it is an individual but more often a firm, who assists entrepreneurs, private companies, or institutional investors who are willing and capable of investing a private equity fund. Basically, they match cash-hungry funds with cash-rich investors. They are often structured as groups within huge investment banking firms such as Credit Suisse Private Fund Group and UBS Investment Bank, or as separate boutique investment banks such as MVision Private Equity Advisers and Campbell Lutyens.

In the context of private equity, a placement agent serves several functions for a company such as raise mezzanine capital or venture capital, as well as raise investor commitments to new private equity funds. The market is very competitive especially with the advancement of media and technology, and the need of a placement agent is now certainly arising in this new economic environment. They are crucial to fundraising for emerging markets of private equity funds.

A company usually hires a placement agent in order not to spend too much of its own time seeking for mezzanine capital or growth equity investors. Sometimes the lender also commissions an agent so that the fund partners can aim attention at management issues rather than focusing on how to raise venture capital. Mounir Guen, chief executive of MVision says, “A placement agent is a necessity.”  Why? “Because if the job is done well it brings a level of sophistication and experience to the fundraising process.” This is because financial institutions have become more crucial and sophisticated in evaluating potential investments.


In the past, these agents were hired to introduce private equity funds to the investors or to what they termed as limited partners (LP), and simply congratulated after a job well done. But today, they are highly valued advisors who understand and know their limited partners and the market’s appetite for different approaches. They also advise and assist fund managers and help develop marketing strategies. Their critical responsibility is constantly trying to satisfy their limited partners and value their judgment in order to establish long term and deep relationship.

Placement agents can bring a myriad of relationships with growth equity investors, mezzanine capital firms, or venture capitalists. They can cherry-pick investors that are likely to come into a particular fund, increasing efficiency and minimizing risk in the fundraising project, according to James Coleman who joined Deloitte LLP after UBS Investment Bank, two of the globally known financial services firms. They can also advise some existing owners of private equity assets on secondary market sales of their interests.

Placement agents are mostly compensated through fees ranging from 1 percent to 3 percent by the companies or individuals who raise capitals. Sometimes their fees and terms of engagement would extremely vary depending on the length of time to execute the fund and based on the amount of money raised.

News By Anthony Ricigliano – The impression is that “green growth” doesn’t quite seem to have caught on if the recent failure of the climate bill is any indication. True, with green growth capabilities still in their infancy, just keeping up with today’s demands would be well beyond the scope of green technology. Without that to fall back on, there’s just growth. Faced with a recession of varying degrees and regions it looks like any type of growth will do.

The problem with growth at all costs is that politicians are forced to go with hat in hand to the very same entities that are heating the planet and burning through the planet’s resources; the corporations that make their money through the depletion of fossil fuel. Of all the industry sectors affected by the global recession, one could argue that Big Oil remains as one of the strongest sectors out there, BP disaster or not. This strength buys political power and puts them in a position of holding the keys to any possibility of reviving or killing any economy. This power isn’t specific to only the United States; it is spread across global political and economic systems.  

The complexity in changing this situation to a different paradigm is so huge that, on the surface at least, it looks almost impossible. One of the big issues is that doing the right thing small steps matters but it can also justify inaction on a larger scale. Here’s an example; a business owner starts a recycling program in his office to take the first steps toward becoming a green company. He feels great about putting this into action and then hops into his Hummer for the one hour commute home.
Staying with this example, one of the things that get people like our business owner to make big changes is when the results of their actions hit them in the face. Our Hummer owner might start feeling some religion towards a Prius if he sees that he can cut his gas bill by three quarters by driving something that gets higher mileage.

Changing from a fossil fuel based growth economy to one perhaps closer to steady state growth philosophies may take millions of these “aha” moments. This change could also be brought to pass should climate change and its links to global warming starts showing up in dramatic fashion. One could hope that the aha moments come in the form decisions being made in which an environmentally friendly choice is more economical that one that isn’t. The unfortunate reality is that we’re still at a point where green solutions are often more costly, less convenient, and/or less efficient than existing solutions.  

The other unfortunate reality is that people in general must often be faced with some sort of adversity before they will commit to making a change. On this note, one can also hope that the adversity required to break environmentally damaging habits doesn’t start arriving on an increasingly frequent basis in the form of disastrous weather and ever rising sea levels.
