NYPD says encrypted "warrant proof" iPhones routinely hinder criminal investigations
Police and prosecutors in New York City said Thursday that the top-notch encryption technology on Apple mobile phones is now routinely hindering criminal investigations. And they predicted the problem could grow worse as more criminals figure out how well the devices keep secrets. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said at a news conference that investigators cannot access 175 Apple devices sitting in his cybercrime lab because of encryption embedded in the company's latest operating systems. "They're warrant proof," he said, adding that the inability to peer inside the devices was especially problematic because so much evidence once stored in file cabinets, on paper, and in vaults, is now only on criminals' smartphones.

Vance didn't specify which cases were being hindered. But Police Commissioner William Bratton said a phone seized in the investigation of the shooting of two police officers in the Bronx last month is among those detectives can't crack. Bratton said criminals are increasingly aware of the protection offered by their devices. He said a prisoner in a city jail was recently recorded saying in a phone call that iPhone encryption was "another gift from God."

Vance said investigators have relied on phone data to investigate killings, child pornography, robbery and identity theft. He said that might include checking a suspect's contact list to get the names of witnesses or conspirators, or viewing incriminating videos and photographs. canadiansecuritymag.com

Apple Faces U.S. Demand to Unlock 9 More iPhones
The Justice Department is demanding Apple's help in unlocking at least nine iPhones nationwide in addition to the phone used by one of the San Bernardino, Calif., attackers. The disclosure appears to buttress the company's concerns that the dispute could pose a threat to encryption safeguards that goes well beyond the single California case. Apple is fighting the government's demands in at least seven of the other nine cases, Marc J. Zwillinger, a lawyer for the company, said in a letter unsealed in federal court on Tuesday. nytimes.com

Black Lives Matter protesters join Chicago Apple store rally
Rallies took place Tuesday evening at Apple stores in Chicago and in cities across the world to protest a court order forcing the tech giant to help the FBI hack into a locked iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino terrorists. But most of the protesters in Chicago were not there to support Apple but, instead, to call for Mayor Rahm Emanuel's resignation after the Laquan McDonald shooting. Shortly before 6 p.m., protesters scuffled with police who tried to keep them from blocking the entrance to the Apple store on Michigan Avenue. At least one person was arrested. abc7chicago.com

Apple Corps at Fashion Valley: 'First Your Phone, Then Your Home'
Chanting "First your phone, then your home" and "Thank you, Tim Cook," as many as 30 people rallied at Fashion Valley's Apple store Tuesday in support of Apple's decision to fight FBI efforts to unlock the iPhone's privacy code. The peaceful hourlong protest - part of a national series of rallies - began at 5:30 p.m. with a handful of people holding signs and speaking passionately about a slippery slope and government encroachment into citizens' privacy. timesofsandiego.com

Alabama Fast-Food Workers Rally To Defend City's Wage Hike
A coalition of fast-food workers, clergy and advocates rallied at the state capitol in Montgomery, Ala., Tuesday as a fight escalated in the state over a proposed minimum wage. Alabama has no minimum wage, and last year, the Birmingham City Council voted to approve an increase from $7.25 (the federal minimum wage that most employers go by) to $10.10 an hour in the future. But a bill filed in the Alabama Legislature on Feb. 11, if passed, would prevent the city from establishing its own minimum wage, which would block the proposed increase. npr.org

Ontario, CA: CarMax employee killed in crash during Test Drive; Driver charged
A CarMax employee was killed during a test drive after the driver crashed into a tree in Ontario, California on Tuesday. Authorities stated a red Chevrolet Corvette was traveling at a high rate of speed during a test drive when it hit a tree. Police said the CarMax employee, Warren Smale, 43, died from his injuries. The man test driving the car, Alex Demetro, 28, was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence of drugs. 6abc.com

Uber's algorithms could spot crimes in progress
The news out of Kalamazoo, Mich., this past weekend was grim: Authorities say Jason Brian Dalton, an Uber driver, shot and killed at least six people in different locations in the space of a few hours. Chillingly, Dalton apparently took several fares in between his alleged attacks. The case raises difficult questions about Uber's responsibility toward passengers and the public. For example, could the company have prevented Dalton's crimes? And if so, how should Uber and regulators respond? More stringent background checks are one option, but they can be discriminatory. They also quickly lead to diminishing returns, since they measure past behavior, and it is incredibly difficult, even based on current behavior, to predict who will become a mass shooter. There is one thing Uber probably could do using its existing technology and the massive amounts of data it already collects about its drivers and passengers: The company could spot crimes in progress by their drivers as they take place. washingtonpost.com

The future of American shopping malls is looking increasingly bleak
American malls might be doomed. Anchor stores like Macy's, Sears, and JCPenney have been closing stores. When these huge stores close, it can kill traffic for the entire shopping mall and lead to the entire center's demise over time. For many retailers, the only option is to become discounting centers similar to TJ Maxx or Ross Stores.

"The outlet stores that most of the department stores are currently rushing to build will, in the future, become ubiquitous clearance centers for their mono brand tenants," retail expert Mark Cohen wrote on The Robin Report. "Necessarily, many of today's traditional department stores' doors will have to close."

Cohen predicts that many American shopping malls will eventually turn into bare-bones outlet centers. That scenario is already playing out at Macy's and Nordstrom. Macy's is putting discount stores in its full line stores, where apparel will be sold for up to 80% off. And that's just on top of the already dire state of American malls. In 2015, Fortune reported that around 300 malls could close in the following decade, citing Green Street Advisors. businessinsider.com

Wal-Mart Sued Over Parmesan Cheese With Wood Pulp Filler
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. was accused in a lawsuit of defrauding customers by selling Parmesan cheese touted as pure that contained wood pulp as filler. The world's largest retailer stocked its New York stores' shelves with containers labeled "100% Grated Parmesan Cheese," but tests showed Wal-Mart's Great Value brand contained as much as 10 percent cellulose, a wood based anti-clumping agent, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. bloomberg.com

How Organized Crime Rings are amassing bot armies for Password-Cracking Attacks on personal accounts in retail
Account takeover attacks (ATO) are a very lucrative business for cybercriminals. They fuel the underground fraud-as-a-service economy with compromised accounts, which are sold or exchanged for a variety of downstream attacks involving retailers, financial services, reward programs, mobile games, and other consumer-facing services. Based on the number of data breaches that took place in 2015, it's likely that the stolen credentials will be used heavily toward ATO attacks in 2016.

What makes ATO attacks so dangerous is that they target accounts that are created by real users. Unlike mass-registered fake accounts, they contain valuable information such as financial data, and their activities are less likely to raise the suspicion of security solutions. According to a recent Trend Micro report, a single compromised account is worth upward of $3 each on the underground market. That's more than 17 times the price of a stolen credit card number, which is only 22 cents.

Organized crime rings are performing account takeover at scale by leveraging massive bot armies to attempt password-cracking attacks at various consumer-facing websites. Just how big are these armies? In a mass ATO attack the DataVisor team recently discovered at a large retailer website, bot armies made more than 300,000 login attempts from thousands of IP addresses in the course of a single day. Each IP address was used to attempt logins to approximately 100 distinct user accounts, with a different browser cookie used for every login, likely to skirt security solutions based on device tracking. darkreading.com

Phishing remains top attack vector for criminals, both novice and professional
A new report from PhishLabs shows that Phishing remains the easiest and the most productive attack vector used by criminals. This is the first time PhishLabs has released a report of this type, and while the data shows what some might already know (namely that humans are soft target), the report highlights some interesting trends that have emerged over the years. csoonline.com

Retailers making security simple with Point-to-Point encryption
In order to remain compliant with PCI standards, many Chip and PIN devices will need to be upgraded periodically by retailers, which can end up being a significant investment for any business owner. To meet these ends, retailers must look towards Point-to-Point encryption (P2Pe). P2Pe is a set of security domains that is quickly on its way to becoming an industry standard, and provides a significant reduction of retailers' scope of PCI compliance. It involves using encryption technology to encrypt payment card data at the moment it is inserted into a PIN entry device (PED), meaning the encryption is executed before the data is even sent to the payment service provider.

The most enticing argument in favour of P2Pe adoption has been its ability to greatly reduce the scope of PCI DSS requirements that retailers are responsible for following, as it transfers much of the responsibility to the payment solution or service provider. itproportal.com

Employee Background Screening ranked top security measure in protecting company's digital data
Research on executives looking to defend their companies against cyber criminals has revealed a vulnerability both known to business executives and, at the same time, frequently overlooked. In a recent survey of 337 business professionals across all sectors of the economy commissioned by First Advantage, 60 percent said the most important security control they could put in place to protect their company's digital data was employee background screening; 53 percent said it was anti-malware, while 39 percent cited physical security and physical access controls. nrf.com

'Retailers need to resolve chip card situation' - Only an estimated 37% of locations are able to accept new cards
According to a report on Business Wire, only an estimated 37 percent of U.S. merchant locations are currently able to accept the chip-enabled cards. We've noticed that many Yuma retail locations now have devices with the ability to accept the microchip cards, but not every business has the devices in use. Some in Yuma, such as Target, Michael's and Walmart, are good to go. However, we've noticed other businesses of varying sizes that have taped notes over the opening for the microchip reader, indicating to shoppers that the machines aren't quite ready for use. Business Wire reports that nationwide, there are a variety of reasons for this: "payment processor readiness, gateway readiness, and technical staff resource availability." We should also consider the time crunch of the situation. With so many businesses attempting to adopt new equipment at essentially the same time, there's bound to be some hang-ups and delays. yumasun.com

Time's Getting Short to Prep for Post-EMV Online Fraud
The expected 100% growth in card not present (CNP) fraud by 2018 threatens small and medium businesses as well as enterprises, and companies need to shore up their data and customer analytics now to stem the tide.

That's a huge number, more than double the expected 2015 CNP fraud total, but history supports it. CNP fraud rates have gone up dramatically in every region that has already implemented EMV technology. Five-year rates for card-not-present fraud rose by 100% in the UK, 233% in Canada, and more than 360% in France after EMV adoption. How can US merchants guard against this incoming wave of CNP fraud?

Verify your transaction data
Work with a payment service provider that offers comprehensive tools for authentication of identity, address, and card data. As more criminals move into CNP, it's crucial that your business has access to the most up to date methods for spotting stolen card numbers and stolen identities.

Analyze your customers' behavior
Of course, skilled criminals can produce authentic-looking data to push a fraudulent transaction through. Behavioral analytics can combat that by evaluating customer behavior in real time.

Hide all transaction data
Now is the time to review your company's overall data security practices, especially transaction data transmissions. The easiest way to ensure ongoing PCI-DSS compliance is to partner with your payment service provider, who should be able to give you the tools and advice needed to validate compliance. Other strong data-protection tools are tokenization and encryption-and merchants can't just assume they're automatically provided by their payment gateway.

Adapt as the landscape evolves
Two-factor authentication was supposed to be a widely adopted tool for data security, but it creates friction that leads some customers to abandon their carts or pay by methods that don't require the extra authentication step, and many cardholders never opt in. Now 3D Secure, the authentication protocol that underpins Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode and Amex SafeKey, is moving toward risk-based authentication based on real-time analysis of transaction data.  paymentssource.com

Mobile App, Wallet Security Top of Mind for Retailers
When it comes to mobile app and mobile wallet payment solutions nearly three quarters of retailers are most concerned with security features, reveals a new survey. Payment security was cited by 72 percent of retailers polled, with integrated loyalty options coming in second place with 71 percent, and seamless ordering, 55 percent, as the third of the top three features wanted in mobile apps. With regard to mobile wallet technology, 75 percent of respondents highlighted payment security as the most important feature, followed by integrated loyalty/rewards (55 percent) and mobile ordering (46 percent). "Regardless of the channel, our survey results demonstrate that payment security is a core area of concern, particularly around tokenization and point-to-point encryption." newsfactor.com

When anyone goes for an interview you've got to play to win. You should not allow any outside variable, any future promotion thoughts or promises, your guilt feelings towards your current employer or boss, your preconceived opinions of the possible future employer, or any miss-step in the process on the part of the future employer to disrupt or impact your performance.
