New PwC report finds a mixed bag of cyber readiness among directors. At a time when massive cyber breaches such as the Equifax hack that led to exposing 145 million users' personal information, the confidence among directors overseeing U.S. corporations that they are ready for a breach is shaky. One-quarter of directors say they have no idea who might even attack their company’s assets, up from five percentage points from last year, according to a recently released survey from PwC.
New study finds a disconnect when it comes to the rank-and-file levelDo directors have a good read on the culture at the organizations they oversee? Turns out, many do not. Only 50% of directors say they understand “the collective behaviors, norms, and values at the front lines of their organizations, among their rank-and-file employees,” according to recently released research from the National Association of Corporate Directors, part of a bigger study on culture to be released later this fall.
"There have been some dramatic changes in the way established boards view the role and value of women members. While these changes may not yet be reflected in the actual numbers of women membvers of major boards, they soon will be." That was an excerpt from an article that appeared in the fall 1994 issue of Directors & Boards magazine titled: "Demand Is Rising For Women Directors: The numbers tell only part of the story of the evolution in boardroom thinking".
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
