Daughter of LP Solution Provider Hedgie Bartol, Axis Communications,
Forms Non-Profit Raising Money for Student-Athlete Concussion Tests

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Myers Park High School student-athlete who suffered a career-ending concussion is now working to help other student-athletes. Eighteen-year-old Chandler Bartol - daughter of Axis Communications' Hedgie Bartol - formed a non-profit to try to raise money for a test she's convinced would have helped her recovery.

She played pretty much every sport as she soon as she learned to walk. But during a junior varsity field hockey game her freshman year, she got a concussion. The doctor told her she should never play contact sports again.

The doctors later asked Chandler if she had a baseline concussion test, which she had no idea what that meant. A baseline concussion test looks at your memory and reflex times and gives doctors an idea of what your brain looks like when everything is OK. The test also helps track a patient's recovery if they ever suffer a concussion.

"If I had had a test, it wouldn't have changed the outcome. It would have helped my recovery process drastically," Chandler said.

She didn't have this because as of now, only high school athletes receive those tests. Chandler is now trying to change that. She formed the nonprofit organization called "Head First" and is raising money to get CMS middle school athletes baseline concussion tests. And she plans to study sports medicine in college.

Anyone interested in donating to Chandler's foundation to support the cause can learn more here.

Royal Wedding Security
$40M and 30,000 police deployed in force's biggest ever operation

Dozens of undercover police officers will mingle with the crowds in a £30 million ($40M US) security operation to protect the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

More than 3,000 officers are set to be deployed in Windsor tomorrow in the biggest operation ever conducted by the Thames Valley force.

Snipers will be posted on rooftops, uniform beat officers will patrol the route of the procession while undercover officers - some armed - will watch for threats from the crowd.

Police expect more than 100,000 people to descend on Windsor, with the town turned into a virtual fortress.

Visitors will be asked to pass through airport-style security scanners and show the contents of their bags while technology will check number plates on all vehicles driving into the centre.

Barriers to halt car or lorry terror attacks are up on roads while helicopters will patrol the skies and marine police will be on the Thames.

Hundreds of officers have been searching the route of the couple's open-top procession in advance while drones will be banned from flying over Windsor Castle all weekend. standard.co.uk

Illinois Biometric Class Actions Are on the Rise
Employers overlook requirement to destroy biometric information

More than 100 class actions have been brought in recent months against employers for violations of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), the strictest biometric law in the nation. That number is likely to rise as a new wave of class actions will target employers that forget about the timely destruction of biometric identifiers or information.

BIPA requires covered entities, including employers, to develop a written policy made available to employees or the general public that establishes a retention schedule and guidelines for permanently destroying biometric identifiers or information. Employers can meet the requirement of making the policy available to the public by placing it on their intranet, Larson said.

The biometric information may not be collected unless the employer first:

● Informs the employee in writing that a biometric identifier or biometric information is being collected or stored.

● Tells the person in writing of the specific purpose and time in which a biometric identifier or biometric information is being collected, stored and used.

● Receives a written release from the employee.

Wells Fargo Employees Altered Information on Business Customers' Documents
Some employees in a Wells Fargo & Co. unit that handles business banking improperly altered information on documents related to corporate customers, according to people familiar with the matter. The behavior again raises questions about Wells Fargo's risk-management practices and controls. The bank has been sanctioned in recent months by federal regulators for problems in these areas and as a result can't grow its balance sheet. wsj.com

J.C. Penney prevails on loss prevention manager's race discrimination claims
A loss prevention manager for J.C. Penney failed to show that he was denied promotions because of his race, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled (Fraser v. J.C. Penney Corp. Inc., No. 17-13262 (11th Cir. May 4, 2018)).

Sherwin Fraser had sued the nationwide retailer, alleging race and national origin discrimination, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He claimed that the company denied him a promotion several times because he is black and a native of Trinidad and Tobago. J.C. Penney, defending the claims, showed that it had previously promoted Fraser several times, given him high performance ratings and repeatedly recommended that he take advantage of the company's leadership development program, which he did not. Additionally, it argued that for one of the job openings, he wasn't the strongest candidate. For another, the company said, he performed poorly in the job interview. Because Fraser was unable to show that these reasons were pretext for discrimination, a district court dismissed his claims.

In defending discrimination claims, documentation often is key. Here, J.C. Penney was able to show why it declined to promote Fraser. And when an employer offers a legitimate nondiscriminatory reason for the challenged action, it's up to the employee to show that the employer's reason isn't real. retaildive.com

BK accused of bias in suit following homeless, black man's false arrest
A Burger King worker thought a black man's $10 bill was fake. He was arrested. Now he's suing for $1M. The lawsuit comes amid a resurgence in a national debate about the treatment of black people in businesses and public spaces. The lawsuit, which was reviewed by The Washington Post, said the Burger King cashier refused to return Ellis's money and threatened to call the police if Ellis didn't leave the restaurant.

Ellis was arrested and charged with forgery of a bank note. The arrest spurred a probation violation, and Ellis was held without bail until his final probation violation hearing, the lawsuit said. Ellis was held for three months - until February 2016 after the Secret Service determined the $10 bill was real, according to the lawsuit. His money was never returned. washingtonpost.com

L Brands founder finds hostile crowd at annual meeting
Shareholders held L Brands executives feet to the fire, albeit politely, during the retailers annual meeting on Thursday. Leslie Wexner, founder and chairman of L Brands, found himself having to answer questions from unhappy shareholders who wanted an explanation for the company's poor performance in 2017.

Questions included whether L Brands reputation at home was at risk during a politically divisive time and whether sales at overseas stores were at risk during times of upheaval.

In the case of overseas sales, "business went to complete hell when Brexit hit," Wexner said, adding that he often checks in with the company's Mideast franchisee after unrest flares up.  dispatch.com

Police move to block the public from listening to scanners
Social-media groups like the Knoxville Crime Facebook group, which has 94,000 members in a city of 186,000, is one reason that Knoxville police officials say they will begin encrypting police radio communications beginning in August, making it impossible for the public to listen in live. The move comes as more police departments around the country are seeking to shield their live radio communications, now easily accessible via smartphone apps. Police say the effort will keep officers safe and bad guys from finding out what they're doing. wsj.com

Nation's largest mall wins Miami-Dade approval as county backs American Dream Miami
The American Dream Miami retail theme park won final zoning approval Thursday from Miami-Dade County, clearing a significant hurdle toward building a $4 billion mega-mall on undeveloped land off the Florida Turnpike with enough space for an indoor ski slope and a submarine lake.

In a 9 to 1 vote, county commissioners approved changing Miami-Dade's growth plan and zoning designations to allow Canadian developer Triple Five to create an even larger version of its current signature property, Minnesota's Mall of America, in Northwest Miami-Dade. With six million square feet of retail and entertainment space, American Dream Miami predicts 30 million visitors a year and about 70,000 vehicle trips in and out of the property, roughly equivalent to some of the busiest stretches of the Dolphin Expressway. miamiherald.com

80% of retailers set to spend on visibility platforms powered by RFID, IoT
About 80% of retail organizations have allocated budget to spend on visibility platforms supported by technologies such as RFID, IoT, inventory management systems and related capabilities aimed at helping them improve several in-store and supply chain processes, according to new IDC Tech Brief from IDC Retail Insights.

The report, "Visibility Platforms for Experiential Retail," shows that more than 60% of retailers already have installed IoT architectures and 85% plan to deploy such a system within 18 months.

Among the top reasons for deploying visibility platforms: Many retailers see the technology as helping them improve internal business productivity, as well as helping to realize savings in areas such as inventory, energy and fuel, systems maintenance and head count, according to IDC. retaildive.com

Threat of Future Identity Theft From Breach Not Enough of an Injury

Phishing Threats Move to Mobile Devices
A mobile user is 18 times more likely to be exposed to a phishing attempt than to malware, according to a new report on techniques and technologies that try to get a user to be an accomplice in their own victimization.

While employees have been taught to be suspicious of links and attachments in email, there is considerably less scrutiny of channels like SMS, Skype, WhatsApp, games, and social media. "As more communications take place over mobile devices, organizations haven't changed their thinking to cover the modes of communications taking place on the devices," says Michael Covington, vice president of product at Wandera, which published the report.

Mobile devices are the technology channel on which personal employee and corporate apps and data come together, and criminal hackers are taking advantage of that to reach enterprise credentials through personal communications. darkreading.com

From Russia With Love
Federal Jury Convicts Operator of Massive Counter-Antivirus Service

Scan4You helped thousands of criminals check if AV products could detect and block their malware tools. A federal jury in Virginia has convicted Latvian resident Ruslans Bondars on charges related to his operation of Scan4You, one of the largest counter-antivirus (CAV) services in the cyber underground before it was shut down in 2016. Russian national Jurijs Martisevs, an individual who assisted Bondars in operating Scan4You, pleaded guilty to his role in March and is awaiting sentencing.

At least 30,000 people used the illegitimate service to vet their malware before distribution during the period Scan4You was operational, between 2009 and 2016. darkreading.com

5 Strategies Crypto Thieves Could Use to Steal Your Cryptocurrency
Crypto Theft Has Risen From $3 Million to $500 Million

As cryptocurrencies have risen in prominence, so have crypto thefts and hacking instances. The cryptocurrency space has seen heists rising from $3 million back in 2013 to over $500 million in the present year; the biggest of them being the recent $500 million Coincheck exchange hack.

Strategies That Crypto Thieves Use

1. Brute Forcing - Brute forcing aka brute force cracking is a trial and error method used by application programs to decode encrypted data such as passwords or Data Encryption Standard (DES) keys, through exhaustive effort rather than employing intellectual strategies. The automated software guesses every possible password until solved. Hackers use this technique to access the backend and have full access to funds.

2. Phone-Porting - Phone porting or service provider portability is the ability of end user of an existing fixed-line or mobile telephone number to reassign the number to another provider. Hackers use this technique to gain access to a phone number by getting the number ported to their mobile device. The thief then resets crypto account passwords and gains access to funds.

3. Phishing - The fraudulent practice of sending emails claiming to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers. Hackers use this technique to send suspicious emails and social media messages, also dispensing malware in some cases. The North Korean malware attack resulted in a theft amounting to $7 million.

4. Ponzi Schemes - A form of multi-level marketing strategy applied to cultivate a belief in the success of a non-existent enterprise by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors. Investors get bonuses for getting others to sign up. The 2018 BitConnect collapse is an example here.

5. Mining Malware & Cryptojacking - Cryptojacking is a form of cyber attack in which a hacker hijacks a target's processing power or a user's miner in order to mine cryptocurrency on the hacker's behalf. In this technique, the hacker embeds power jacking miners in ads and extensions from sites like Coinhive that mine using visitor CPUs. bitrazzi.com

Why Online Merchants Should Make Security A Year-Round Priority
Why make security a point of emphasis? Well, consider that in 2016 online fraud rose 40%, and I have little doubt the 2017 numbers will be even more harrowing when they're released. If you're willing to heed my advice and resolve to commit resources to improving security, here's where to start:

Survey Your Situation
Map out all the channels you're selling through: Online, mobile, social media platforms, in-store brick-and-mortar, pop-up shops, etc. Make sure you know how security is (or isn't) being addressed for each, the risks you'll encounter and how you'll manage them.

In a similar way, map out your human capacity. Be realistic in evaluating whether you have the employee time and resources to manage payment approvals, fraud claims and security flags.

Know Your Core Technology
Customer data is your most valuable asset, so it's also important to be intimately familiar with how that data is being stored, shared and used both inside and outside the confines of that e-Commerce platform. Generally speaking, the fewer points of exposure, the better.

Pick Your Partners
On the fraud prevention front, there are a couple routes you can go down, depending on the maturity and complexity of your company. First, you can look into strong standalone products like Signifyd, which watches the transaction and the shopper to flag fraud by pulling in data around browser fingerprinting, the number of high-value items in an order, frequency of shopping, types of products in a cart and more. The other option is more complex systems coupled with payments from the likes of CyberSource or Vantiv, which offer bespoke tuning of fraud engines to completely tailor them to your business.

Fall Back On The Standards
Even if you can't afford some of the flashier tools, there are some baseline steps you can take to implement best practices for security. At the very least, implement site-wide HTTPS, on every page of the browser experience for your online store, all the way through the transaction. Transition from vulnerable Adobe Flash to HTML5. Finally, be PCI compliant through and through.

Understand What's At Stake
The financial implications in e-Commerce security are obvious, even if the degree to which they can impact a business might be underestimated. Nearly 50% of small businesses fall victim to fraud at some point in their lifecycle, and those incidents cost an average of $114,000 per occurrence, according to The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. But that doesn't even take the intangibles into account. retailtouchpoints.com

Indianapolis, IN: Man charged with leading Fraud Ring that targeted Kroger; over 5000 Fraudulent checks
An Indianapolis man has been charged in a 10-count indictment for his alleged leadership role in a fraud ring that used thousands of forged checks at Kroger stores in at least 12 states. Frank D. Powell, 28, faces seven counts of wire fraud, one count of attempted bank fraud, one count of aggravated identity theft, and one count of false statements to a financial institution, U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler announced Thursday. Federal investigators say Powell organized a ring that used fraudulent checks to purchase gift cards and merchandise from stores throughout the country from January 2016 until last month. Powell and his associates are accused of using more than 5,000 fraudulent checks in at least 30 different individual or business names, such as "Frank Pawell" and "Pawell Child Care LLC." After processing, the checks were returned to Kroger as "account closed, forged, non-sufficient funds or unable to locate account."

Powell could face up to 30 years in prison on the bank-related charges, up to 20 years for each of the wire fraud charge, and a mandatory minimum of 2 years on the aggravated identity theft charge, if convicted. This case was investigated by the FBI and law enforcement personnel from Indianapolis, Hamilton County, Fishers, Carmel and Johnson County, and Kroger's Organized Retail Crime Investigators. ibj.com
