The Longest Foreign Corruption Case
Walmart's $900 Million Compliance Costs - The Biggest in History
BREAKING: Walmart To Pay $282M To End Government's FCPA Claims

Walmart Inc. agreed Thursday to pay more than $282 million to settle allegations by U.S. authorities that it violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by failing to ensure subsidiaries in Brazil, China, India and Mexico had adequate anti-corruption programs.

The Justice Department launched its investigation as a series of New York Times articles described alleged bribes Walmart paid in Mexico to obtain permits to build stores there. That spurred a wide-reaching investigation of Walmart's business across the globe, including in Brazil, China and India.

Walmart will pay roughly $144 million to resolve the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's civil claims and $138 million to resolve criminal charges brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to the SEC.

Walmart has spent about $900 million since 2012 on its own internal investigation of the bribery allegations and upgraded compliance operations, according to financial filings. law360.com wsj.com

Editor's Note: This case brought about the biggest compliance effort in history. Probably of any business sector ever globally. Just try even buying a Walmart executive lunch! It won't happen. Heck I got paranoid just walking the halls.

In one year alone, right after the first reports came out, Walmart stated in their next annual report that they spent over $400 million on the compliance efforts and associated expenses in one year alone. And since then they've probably become the most vendor sensitive organization there is out there.

It's still our belief that an investigator (whistleblower), sent down on the initial investigation in Mexico, was the confidential New York Times source. Due to the fact that in their eyes, nothing was done.

Shortly afterwards the executive who was at the center of this alleged activity returned to the corporate office and retired shortly afterwards. However this is just our opinion and does not based on any information.

Visualizing The Supermarket of the Future

by Tony D'Onofrio, Global Retail Influencer

In multiple of my articles, I have been consistent that consumers and store associates as brand ambassadors plus immersive customer experiences are the future of retail. Growing up in this industry, it is always exhilarating observing these success elements in a live environment.

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of re-visiting one of my favorite stores in the world, Dorothy Lane Market (DLM) in the USA state of Ohio. This retail masterpiece celebrated 70 years of being in business in 2018.

Our quick lunch possibilities visit into one of their locations evolved into an immersive 2+ hour visualization journey of the future supermarket. This post summarizes a few of the captured images and the memories they brought back from previously living in this part of the world.

Shopping at DLM is a Global Experience
DLM shoppers build on the global team spirit by having their pictures taken at various sites around the world holding a Dorothy Lane Market shopping bag. Below is the current display of the global images from the store and on the right is my own personal contribution from several years ago from a winery in South Africa.

The Aisles are Alive with the Sounds of Positive Experiences
The entrance is a visual invitation to shop till you drop. Lots of fresh choices in the delicatessen. The bakery invites you to try one of their famous brownies. I was tempted by the French baguette sandwiches. The fresh produce display was amazing. But the salad bar was our favorite (and ended up being our delicious lunch). Too early in the morning, but the wine selection was inviting. Maybe need to come back for one of those scheduled wine tastings.

Brand Ambassadors are Everywhere
Positive retail experiences begin with engaged employees. This book excerpt provides some insights on what it takes to build the pro-customer and pro-employees DLM culture.

I am now visualizing that as the supermarket of the future, Dorothy Lane Market will soon deliver from Ohio to South Carolina. tonydonofrio.com

Moderating the Internet
Stories From the Deepest Depths of Moderating the Web

At Facebook's worst-performing content moderation site in North America, one contractor has died, and others say they fear for their lives

A Facebook content moderation site in Tampa, FL, operated by a professional services vendor named Cognizant. The 800 or so workers there face relentless pressure from their bosses to better enforce the social network's community standards, which receive near-daily updates that leave its contractor workforce in a perpetual state of uncertainty. The Tampa site has routinely failed to meet the 98 percent "accuracy" target set by Facebook. In fact, with a score that has been hovering around 92, it is Facebook's worst-performing site in North America.

All Facebook contractors at the Tampa site, must sign a 14-page nondisclosure agreement.

In February, I wrote about the secret lives of Facebook contractors in America. Since 2016, when the company came under heavy criticism for failing to prevent various abuses of its platform, Facebook has expanded its workforce of people working on safety and security around the world to 30,000. With 15,000 content moderators.

Three Cognizant workers go on record. - The mental health issues associated with policing the biggest social media site in the world.

Cracker Barrel refuses to host Tennessee anti-LGBTQ pastor's event
Cracker Barrel said in a statement posted to social media on Tuesday it will not permit a gathering planned at its Cleveland, Tennessee, restaurant hosted by a Knox County deputy and pastor who has come under fire for his anti-LGBTQ statements and sermons.

Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Mary Mancini wrote an open letter to the CEO of Cracker Barrel, which was also posted to Twitter, informing them that Grayson Fritts and All Scripture Baptist Church were planning a gathering on June 29 at its Cleveland location called "Small Town Soul Winning."

In the letter, Mancini notes that the event goes against the statement of inclusion and diversity posted to the restaurant's website. The restaurant responded saying they have advised Fritts and the church that their event will not be allowed at Cracker Barrel and neither he nor his group will be permitted on site.  wkrn.com

The Power of - or the Bullet from - First Impressions
"The President Gets 100 Days to Prove Themselves
You Get Just 90" & You Better Be Going Full Speed

That's how author Michael D. Watkins opens his seminal book on leadership transitions, The First 90 Days. The three-month period, as he explains, is a quarter, the time frame used by companies to track performance, and it is long enough to offer meaningful indicators of how a new manager is doing. Research shows that success or failure within the first few months of a new management role is often an accurate predictor of ultimate success, he adds. 

"When leaders derail, their failures can almost always be traced to vicious cycles that developed in the first few months on the job," Watkins writes. 

These vicious cycles frequently begin in a few similar ways. Some new managers do not realize the impact of their early words and actions, and are inadvertently sending colleagues the wrong message. Others focus on a new strategy before earning trust and support from the team. Others expend too much energy on the wrong projects and neglect the priorities of stakeholders, Bradt writes.

"The pace of transition has gone up pretty dramatically." Since 2013, average turnover time at the vice president level decreased from 3.2 years to 2.2 years. "There's a premium on getting up to speed faster," he explains.

Break down a new manager's first 90 days into 10 separate directives: Prepare Yourself; Accelerate Your Learning; Match Strategy to Situation; Negotiate Success; Secure Early Wins; Achieve Alignment; Build Your Team; Create Alliances; Manage Yourself; and Accelerate Everyone.

Inside the FBI's Fight Against Cybercrime
Heavily outnumbered and outpaced by their targets, small FBI cybersquads have been quietly notching up major wins against online criminals operating out of home and abroad.

At least some of the success is the result of efforts to build up partnerships with private industry and from cooperation with international law enforcement agencies.

Victories are a long way from chilling cybercrime, which by some accounts has become even bigger and more organized than even drug trafficking. But the arrests, the indictments, the seizures, and the takedowns are not going entirely unnoticed either.

As threats have evolved, so has the FBI's understanding of how best to approach them. One area where the agency has made a lot of improvement is in scoping requests for data from service providers when carrying out investigations. "We have gotten better at getting the right evidence from service providers," Walton says.

Helping them in a major way is the private industry. Over the past several years, the FBI has been working with researchers and engineers from within the security industry to try and understand new and emerging threats and trends. The informal interactions and relationships have been key to the FBI's ability to hunt down and dismantle criminal networks on the Internet. darkreading.com

Facebook's Libra Cryptocurrency Prompts Privacy Backlash
Ecosystem Questions: US, European Officials Demand Answers

With Facebook now officially preparing to launch its own cryptocurrency, Libra, in 2020, the social media giant is facing a privacy and security backlash both in the U.S. and Europe. Lawmakers and regulators are raising concerns about the offering based on the company's poor history of protecting user data.

Tuesday's announcement includes a number of promises to use the same types of anti-fraud and verification technologies that banks use, along with protections for user and data privacy. govinfosecurity.com

Data Breach Causes Liquidation
AMCA Bankruptcy Filing in Wake of Breach Reveals Impact
Court Documents Outline a 'Host of Negative Consequences'

In a case underscoring the potential financial havoc wreaked by data breaches, the 42-year-old parent company of American Medical Collection Agency has filed for bankruptcy just weeks after disclosing a data breach that affected its largest clients and millions of patients.

The move comes after the March discovery of a major data breach, revealed in June. The breach not only caused AMCA's largest clients to end their business relationships with the Elmsford, New York-based debt collection agency, but has also resulted in "enormous expenses that were beyond the ability of [the company] to bear."  govinfosecurity.com

Regulation readiness: Embracing the privacy legislation wave ahead
Some organizations are debating whether or not they should adhere to these data privacy requirements-and those that are still to come-particularly if they find themselves outside of their respective jurisdictions; perhaps your business is one of them.

While privacy regulation is currently fragmented, a worldwide governmental consensus is swiftly building. Organizations like yours should embrace data rights now with open arms instead of trying to resist the coming wave of data privacy legislation; this will enable you to leap ahead of competitors, and allow you to focus on innovation and long term strategy instead of spending all of your time and energy on avoiding penalties for non-compliance. helpnetsecurity.com

Investigation and Response is a Team Sport
Security operations centers (SOCs) are using Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) tools to offload time-intensive and manual tasks that bog down Tier 1 analysts. This frees them up to transition to Tier 2 and Tier 3 investigation and response activities. 

So, what tools do security analysts have to conduct these higher-level tasks? There can be a huge leap from running Tier 1 tasks to determining the scope of an attack and the remediation and recovery efforts needed, or proactively finding threats that have evaded defenses and infiltrated the network. securityweek.com

6 highly effective ways to reduce ecommerce cart abandonment
According to research from Baymard Institute, the average online shopping cart abandonment rate is 69.57 percent. In other words, less than a third of people who get to the checkout stage on an ecommerce website will complete their order. In many cases, consumers put items into a shopping cart to see the total cost or with the intent of coming back later to complete the purchase. Still, some back out of a transaction for reasons that retailers can address.

By implementing the following six ideas, you can significantly reduce ecommerce cart abandonment:

1. Eliminate or Minimize Extra Costs, and be Upfront About Them
2. Reduce The Number of Checkout Form Fields
3. Make Use of Recognized, Secure Trust Seals and Trust Marks
4. Work on Your Website Speed and Functionality
5. Have a Clear Return Policy
6. Have a Cart Abandonment Follow-Up Email System digitalcommerce360.com

Volusia County, FL: Counterfeiting ring: "Operation Wild Bills"
6 more arrested in ongoing investigation tied to fake cash,
shoplifting and return fraud

The head of a counterfeiting organization busted in July recruited people hooked on drugs to pass around the fake money, shoplift and return merchandise bought with false currency, investigators said. Even the Southworth brand of paper used to make the imitation money was stolen from Walmart, Volusia County sheriff's detectives said. Frederick Paqua, 55, paid the people with heroin, methamphetamine, pills and very little money, sheriff's investigators said.

In telling investigators how he started and grew his counterfeiting operation, Paqua, who goes by "New York" or "Money Man," laughed when he said the people he got to help him were aware of his criminal activities, an investigative report states. "They're drug addicts, but they knew what they were doing," a laughing Paqua told investigators, according to the report.

Investigators said Paqua and his group produced more than $100,000 in counterfeit money from March to July 2018. Volusia County Sheriff's Office detectives started looking into the group in April 2018 after getting multiple reports from businesses that people were passing fake money in $10, $50 and $100 bills. The reports were made at coffee shops like Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks, gas stations and at big chain stores like Home Depot, Walmart and Lowe's in Orange City, DeLand and at other businesses in the Sheriff's Office's jurisdiction, reports state. On Tuesday, Volusia deputies made six additional arrests in connection with Paqua's racketeering and counterfeit operation dismantled last July. These six arrests are in addition to arrests made on July 18, 2018. news-journalonline.com

Geneva, IL: Altered credit cards leads to 5 felonies
Woman trying to steal $13k in merchandise at Ulta

A New York woman was charged with five felony counts of possessing an altered a credit card after attempting to buy more than $13,000 worth of goods at a Geneva store. Kaylana S. Giwa, 24, of Brooklyn, NY, was charged June 7 with knowingly possessing an altered credit card with the intent to defraud. Giwa and another shopper at Ulta Cosmetics, in Geneva, selected expensive perfumes, asked for more from the stock room and requested two $500 Dyson hair dryers.

While Giwa shopped, Ulta contacted its loss prevention department, which believed her behavior was similar to other fraudulent activities experienced at other store locations in the Chicago area. Loss prevention provided a bulletin with photographs of the shoppers, compared them to Giwa and her companion, and confirmed they were the same people, the report stated. kcchronicle.com

It always boils down to the people - the team. No matter how sophisticated we become or how fast and efficient our systems are, it's always the people that make it work or not work for that matter. So many hide so much behind the technology that I wonder if we, the people, are losing ground at times. It's easy to sit back, get work done, shuffle our emails and feel like we accomplished a lot. But at the end of the day have we really?

Just a Thought,
