For my Computer Security students, particularly the Vets.
Cybersecurity's million dollar jobs
Jeremy King says there's some cybersecurity leadership roles at large U.S. corporations offering $1 million compensation packages.  The recipients of these big pay packages include military cyber experts making a switch to the commercial sector.  
   What are the hot skills in demand at U.S. corporations?  King lists some of them - which the military cyber defense specialists bring:
  • Red Team hackers who find vulnerabilities in your defenses;
  • Insider threat experts who map out risky behavior of your employees;
  • Incident response experts who do breach analysis and remediation;
  • Threat intelligence experts who can evaluate your threat landscape;
  • Security experts who can help design and manage security operations centers.
For more information read the quarterly "Ask The Recruiter" report featuring King.

Okay, if this was the final exam in a law school class, I’d flunk.  Is this because the emails were out of the US only because Google was balancing it’s usage/storage at centers around the world? 
Google, unlike Microsoft, must turn over foreign emails: U.S. judge
A U.S. judge has ordered Google to comply with search warrants seeking customer emails stored outside the United States, diverging from a federal appeals court that reached the opposite conclusion in a similar case involving Microsoft Corp.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Rueter in Philadelphia ruled on Friday that transferring emails from a foreign server so FBI agents could review them locally as part of a domestic fraud probe did not qualify as a seizure.
The judge said this was because there was "no meaningful interference" with the account holder's "possessory interest" in the data sought.
"Though the retrieval of the electronic data by Google from its multiple data centers abroad has the potential for an invasion of privacy, the actual infringement of privacy occurs at the time of disclosure in the United States," Rueter wrote.

On the other hand, it’s Google that moved into their space. 
Google Warns of New Rivals in Corporate Computing, Digital Assistants, Hardware

"Digital assistant providers, such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft."
"Providers of enterprise cloud services, including Amazon and Microsoft.
"Companies that design, manufacture, and market consumer electronics products."
