If incorporated and monitored correctly, however, cloud deployment could ultimately benefit cybersecurity, according to Chenxi Wang, a former vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research Inc.

US corporate profit growth slows as shutdown continues
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Prospects for a recovery in U.S. corporate profits this year appear to be dimming due to the federal government shutdown, which has hindered trade and threatened consumer spending. Higher payroll taxes weighed on shoppers at retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and industrial companies such as Caterpillar Inc. confronted slowing sales at a time when there was little room left to boost profit through cost-cutting. The two-week-old government shutdown and impasse over increasing the U.S. Treasury's borrowing limit add to the risk of derailing an economic recovery whose bright spots include revivals in housing and for Detroit's automakers.

Dealers beware: Fraudulent companies may be eroding the sands of your beach
By Marilou Vroman, CPA, CFE
Dealerships are viewed as cash cows with deep pockets with substantial assets and revenues flowing through the operation. As ocean waves subtly carry grains of sand away from the beach, diversion of cash and physical assets may occur in small increments over the course of time and go virtually undetected. There are many ways a dealership may fall victim to fraudulent activity. With the high volume of transactions in typical dealerships, false billing schemes and fraudulent disbursement schemes paired with the creation of shell companies present a high risk of loss.

Enterprise mobility: Cost vs. risk
InformationWeek
Analysts say we are witnessing the "consumerization of IT" in the corporation. Corporate data is an asset that today is often placed outside an organization's safekeeping, without anyone's knowledge. Questions on security, scale and integration with corporate systems are not asked. So the consumerization trend means that unless IT can respond quickly to requests, users will find their own solutions outside of standard governance.

CEO pay ratios: Trouble ahead for HR?
Human Resource Executive Online
On Sept. 19, the Securities and Exchange Commission, in a 3-2 party-line vote, proposed its long-awaited CEO pay-ratio regulations called for by the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory reform law of 2010. Based on feedback from some experts in the executive-compensation field, the SEC's rules — likely to begin in the 2015 proxy season — will not win any popularity tests within the HR community. At issue is the new rules requirement that public companies disclose the ratio between the pay of their chief executive and the income for all other employees, no matter how they are classified. For large U.S. companies and those with a global workforce, the rules could pose challenges, say experts.
