NYPD: Ready for War With ISIS
- A Rare Look Inside New York's Counter-Terrorism Command Center
In the air, over the water and on the street with hundreds of heavily-armed
officers, the New York Police Department says it is ready for war if ISIS or any
terror group attacks New York City. "I think that it's inevitable that
there'll be another attack in this country," Chief James Waters, the head of
the NYPD's Counterterrorism Bureau, told ABC News during a tour of his
department's newly formed Critical Response Command. "We are well-prepared to
respond to that."
525 specially trained officers rotate shifts so that at any given time, 24/7,
some 100 of them are ready to roll out with high-powered weapons, radiation
detectors and bomb-sniffing Labrador Retrievers that can detect the chemicals
known to be used by ISIS for its suicide explosives. The operation is run from a
command center in an undisclosed location in lower Manhattan, where the feeds
from more than 9,000 surveillance cameras are piped in and displayed - feeds
from the Brooklyn Bridge to Times Square to inside the city's subways. License
plate readers on roads can capture three million license plates a day, Chief
Waters said, and the plate data is kept for five years.
The Chief said the security operation as a whole has been referred to as a
"ring of steel," an expansion of the concept first used in London. "It's our
way of protecting New York," he said.
Bangladesh attack could stymie garment industry reforms
An attack at a popular Dhaka cafe Friday that killed 20 hostages, including many
foreigners, could be detrimental to the country's $26 billion garment industry,
analysts told Reuters. While it's unclear whether the attack was carried out by
local extremists or those affiliated with the terrorist group Islamic State,
also known as ISIS or ISIL, fears about the violence are keeping retail and
manufacturing officials away from the country and could lead many to reconsider
sourcing their goods there. Cutbacks in sourcing could also impede efforts to
improve working conditions in the industry, which has been in focus after a
deadly factory fire and collapse there in 2013.
Businesses must contend with higher workplace safety fines
Businesses that break workplace safety laws will face stiffer penalties under
new federal regulations - including a 78 percent increase for the most severe
violations. The top penalty for a "serious" and "other-than-serious"
violation will increase from $7,000 to $12,471, according to the U.S. Labor
Department, which oversees the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The maximum penalty for willful or repeated violations, such as those that
result in the death of a worker, will increase from $70,000 to $124,709.
Failure to correct a violation will increase from up to $7,000 daily to $12,741
daily. OSHA has not raised the maximum penalties since 1990. The new penalties
are applicable to penalties assessed after Aug. 1 for violations that occurred
after Nov. 2, 2015.
"Civil penalties should be a credible deterrent that influences behavior far and
wide," U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez said in a prepared statement. "Adjusting our penalties to keep pace with the cost of living can lead to
significant benefits for workers and can level the playing field for responsible
employers who should not have to compete with those who don't follow the law."
Lowe's, Armstrong Fight Flooring Formaldehyde Class Action
A proposed class action accusing Lowe's and Armstrong of selling laminate
flooring with dangerous levels of formaldehyde fails to state any plausible
claim and should be dismissed, the hardware retailer and floor manufacturer
argued Friday to a Florida federal judge. Lowe's Cos. Inc. and Armstrong World
Industries Inc. each separately struck back against a Florida couple's
allegations that the Armstrong laminate flooring they purchased from the
hardware retailer contained formaldehyde levels that "far exceed" the maximums
allowed by the California Air Resources Board, which categorizes the chemical as
a cancer-causing agent.
Aeropostale Creditors, Trustee Object To Employee Bonuses
Key creditors and the Office of the U.S. Trustee have objected to an Aeropostale
Inc. plan to spend nearly $4.9 million on Chapter 11 incentive and retention
bonuses, citing inadequate disclosures by the teen clothing retailer and
failures to meet federal standards for the payments. Aero Investors LLC and MGF
Sourcing Holdings Ltd. jointly challenged the plans, which would pay 10 insiders
as much as a combined $3.4 million when the company reached broad milestones
after a company sale or reorganization.
Walgreens CEO 'Confident' Rite Aid Deal 'Will Go Through' By December
Despite a tough climate for U.S. regulatory reviews of mergers in general and
healthcare in particular, Walgreens top executive exuded confidence about the
prospects of the company's proposed Rite Aid acquisition during a 60-minute
conference call with analysts and investors Wednesday morning to discuss fiscal
third-quarter earnings. "By December, we believe that everything will be done,"
Walgreens CEO Stefano Pessina said in answering questions about a U.S.
regulatory review of its acquisition of Rite Aid.
Mall operators struggle under debt load
Suburban Detroit's Lakeside Mall, home to midrange stores such as Sears, Bath &
Body Works and Kay Jewelers, is one of hundreds of retail centers in the country
being buffeted by the rise of e-commerce. When a $144 million loan on the
property came due last month, owner General Growth Properties Inc. didn't make a
mortgage payment. The default by the second-biggest U.S. mall owner might
be a harbinger of trouble nationwide as a wave of debt from the past decade's
borrowing binge comes due for shopping centers. About $47.5 billion of loans
backed by retail properties are set to mature over the next 18 months, data
from Bank of America Merrill Lynch show. That's coinciding with a tighter market
for commercial-mortgage-backed securities, where many such properties are
Outlook Dimming for Retail in the Second Half
As the first half slips into the past, retailers' high hopes for a strong second
six months of the year are beginning to fade as well. A slow spring for shopping
has led to elevated levels of inventory as retailers come out of the Fourth of
July holiday and the season's usual markdowns. Thomson Reuters said that in
April, all of the retailers missed their same-store sales estimates and in
May, 57 percent missed expectations. May also delivered more than the
average number of downside surprises. June same-store sales will be released
But looking at the first two weeks in June, the Johnson Redbook Sales Index
reported that national retail sales fell 1 percent from May and only rose 0.6
percent over the previous year.
Retailers' sales floors may soon transition from spring-summer to
back-to-school, but the third quarter isn't expected to show much improvement
over the second for the beleaguered stores. That's causing analysts and
investors to lose further confidence in consumers' desire to spend on apparel
and to cut their forecasts.

ATMs at the bar or corner store could go away as chip cards loom
That ATM in the dark corner of the bar could be on its way out. By October of
this year, ATM owners in the United States have to replace or upgrade their
machines to accept chip cards or face liability for certain types of fraud. But
the upgrade and related ongoing maintenance are so expensive that cash-machine
operators like Abe Ayesh, who helps manage about 8,000 ATMs mostly on the East
Coast, plans to shut down some of them. Upgrading his existing fleet will cost
$4 million -- his company's entire annual earnings without charges like
depreciation and taxes, he said.
Some 410,000 ATMs have to be upgraded, according to researcher Aite Group. Up
to 10 percent of so-called retail ATMs -- those not owned by banks -- may be
thrown out instead of souped up or replaced because of the move to chip cards,
James Phillips, a vice president at retail ATM maker Triton Systems of Delaware,
said in an interview. Only about 20 percent of U.S. ATMs have been adapted to
accept the chip cards, according to MasterCard estimates. By Oct. 1, that will
creep up to 35 percent.
Phishing scam focuses on the basics to harvest business credentials
Criminals are using basic CSS and HTML to scam victims out of their credentials,
and in some cases, their phone numbers too. The Phishing campaign is driven by
an easily customized kit that uses blurred images as a lure. The scam starts
with an email prompting the victim to follow a link to view an invoice or
purchase order. The emails themselves are cleanly coded, and use logos from
legitimate organizations, such as HSBC. If the link is clicked, the victim is
directed to a landing page that uses basic images to make it appear as if the
documents are real, but require authentication to view. The kit uses
low-resolution images to give the appearance of a blurring, with just enough
detail to make it look legitimate.
Report: Ransomware that encrypts is booming
Over the past year the number of machines hit by ransomware that encrypts all or
part of the hard drive is five-and-a-half times what it was the year before,
according to Kaspersky Lab. The number in 2014-2015 was 131,111 compared to
718,536 in 2015-2016, according to the company's report "Ransomware
In-store technologies: Separating the 'cool' from the 'creepy'
RichRelevance surveyed more than 2,000 U.S. and U.K. consumers about how
technology can impact their in-store shopping experience, highlighting the
differences between what shoppers thought was 'cool' and 'creepy'.
On the 'cool' side of the equation, 47% of respondents thought fingerprint
technology that would allow them to pay for goods and get automatic home
delivery would be cool. More than six in 10 (62%) want to be able to scan a
product on their device to see reviews and recommendations for other items they
may like. And 42% would like to see interactive changing room mirrors that model
potential outfits on their image.
Not all in-store technologies possess the cool factor. Seventy-five percent of
shoppers thought that facial recognition software that would allow them to be
targeted in-store with relevant offers was "creepy." Also not cool: being
greeted by name by a sales associate. Seventy-five percent of respondents said
it is 'creepy' for a sales assistant to greet them by name in store, if their
mobile phone or tablet device had signaled their presence.

CAPData Used in Predictive Policing Tactics by Sheriff's Department
"Whenever we present HCSO plans to our Board of Supervisors, and it's
supported by CAP Index data, there are never any questions about the integrity
of the analysis process or anything else..." - Sergeant Sullivan
Established in 1720, the Hanover County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) is the primary
law enforcement agency servicing more than 100,000 residents within a
474-square-mile jurisdiction in Hanover County, Virginia.
To keep up with the demands associated with commercial and population growth and
the latest trends in crime forecasting, HCSO developed a predictive policing
density analysis system to better understand and manage the impact of geographic
density variables and crime trends on law enforcement operations.
The end goal of the HCSO initiative was to deter crime. Toward that end, their
research was designed to yield a predictive formula using density analysis
attributed to community movement and Calls For Service (CFS) as potential
"gateway" crime indicators.
Although the use of data and analytical tools can never be 100% accurate as a
predictor of criminal activity, this crime risk management discipline is a
proven methodology - both for law enforcement agencies and corporations - for
effective utilization of resources and to fill in any missing knowledge gaps in
the absence of direct intelligence.
For HCSO, their predictive policing initiative has been attributed to a
measurable reduction in criminal activity since the inception of the program. It
has also allowed for more effective allocation and placement of law enforcement
resources, provided a practical guide for county growth and strategic planning
initiatives, and helped to foster strong partnerships with county planning
HCSO's successful experience with predictive policing methods has been both
instructional and rewarding for CAP Index. In our recent interview with Sergeant
Terry Sullivan, he acknowledged the important role that CAP continues to play in
validating HCSO's own firsthand research. He noted, "When we're analyzing our CFS data, types of crime, and population densities, it's extremely valuable for
us to affirm the accuracy of that information through a knowledgeable third
party like CAP Index. Very often, your data analysis matches our experience and
projections. Sometimes, however, your CRIMECAST Maps might show us an area
where your forecast for the victimization rate might be higher than what we've
calculated; so we take that into account in our resource deployment strategy."

What EMV means for
e-commerce fraud - and why Apple Pay is a security
If you peel it all away, [EMV is] an integrated circuit chip in a plastic
card. It allows a terminal to say, "This did come from an issuing bank. It
wasn't created by someone else." A [magnetic]-stripe card is basically a
static piece of data put onto the mag-stripe on the back of that card. Once
the issuer creates it and puts it out there, that's what's being used as
authentication. Anyone who can extract that data or can even get that data
from another source-like a data breach like you'll see at some big
retailers-can encode that data onto a new piece of plastic.
very effective tool to fight fraud, but you're focusing on one very specific
type of fraud, which is counterfeit cards, and only within a card-present
reading. An online retailer doesn't get to authenticate that chip-there's no
kind of handshake that goes on there. So from that perspective, [EMV]
doesn't do anything to help counterfeit fraud online.
see one avenue of revenue is closed down-that they can't create a
counterfeit card and use that-they're gonna go somewhere else. There are
"dark web" areas where you can buy files of credit cards. Once you have that
file, you can still put it on a new mag-stripe card and use it in a retail
environment, but as EMV clamps down on that, you have to find somewhere else
to use those. It pushes fraudsters into the card-not-present space.
One of the big realities of mobile is the real estate. You don't have a full
keyboard. You have a tiny screen to display products and reviews. There's
very little real estate for a traditional entry of credit card data. Now I
press my thumbprint, and all of that stuff is auto-populated into the
merchant's checkout flow in a tokenized manner. It's layering in security
with convenience. Now I'm not even thinking about friction. When you see the
Apple Pay logo, you just go for it. It's one of the biggest innovations I've
seen in the retail space in a long time.
UN warns police are not
up to targeting dark web superstores
United Nation's Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has published its annual
report and this year made particular note of the issues thrown up by the
illicit trade of goods and drugs on the so-called dark web.
has gone to pains to tell us that many countries' law enforcement agencies
are simply not dealing with the trade networks that have grown across the
mostly uncharted expanse of the dark web.
With users at both the
buyer and seller level obfuscating their locations using Tor, the anonymous
online marketplace has proliferated and grown. Heavily aligned to the issue
of drugs trade across the dark web, the UN report is similar to a 2014
Europol report that called on law enforcement agencies to build capability
in the area of darknet investigations.
Although the FBI has been
lauded for its efforts in the fight against the dark web and its trading
pathways, simply identifying the location of users is not usually enough.
The reason being that even with a user location enforcement agencies have
trouble pinning down the national sovereignty of the device location, ie
where data sovereignty exists for each and every virtual user profile.

Antonio, TX: Three arrested in $50,000 Organized Retail Theft ring
More than $50,000 worth of stolen merchandise was recovered Tuesday
after police arrested three people accused of leading that property crime
ring. Sgt. Daniel Anders with the San Antonio Police Department said the
fencing interdiction team had been following the crew in action for a few
months and Tuesday afternoon, the team arrested three people for organized
retail crime. The suspects are two women, one 50 years old and one 20 years
old, and a 46-year-old man. Police said the three were paying "boosters" or
people for stealing items from local sporting good and department stores.
Anders said they stole mostly clothing and shoes, but also nonprescription
pharmaceutical items and $4,000 cash. The three will be charged with
organized retail crime, which is a felony. Anders said they also arrested a
few of those so-called "boosters." He said they are also looking to see if
this operation is part of a bigger ring.

Loss prevention officer
beaten until he was unconscious at Easton area Walmart
Police say a Columbus man severely beat a Walmart loss prevention
officer while trying to get away with
bag full of stolen electronics. It happened on June 25 at the Walmart at
3900 Morse Road. A man and a woman put an assortment of electronics in a
shopping cart, and then went over to the toy aisle to unwrap them and place
them in a tote bag they took off a shelf. The pair then hid the tote bag in
the comforter aisle and left the store. A short time later, police said
Michael R. Purnell walked into the store and grabbed the tote bag and
started walking toward the door. A loss prevention associate tried to stop
Purnell as he left, but police said he refused to cooperate. That's when
Purnell started assaulting the loss prevention associate. Purnell shoved him
and slammed his body to the ground, then punched him in the face several
times rendering him unconscious. Police noted Purnell could have left the
store, but chose to continue assaulting the loss prevention associate. Court
records show Purnell has a history of felony charges going back to the
1980s. In 2003, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for robbery.

As many of us speed through our days and work hard to accomplish our
objectives, oftentimes the one thing that suffers is our active listening
skills. These skills are important if we expect to truly change behavior or
direction as quickly as today's pace requires. Active listening is difficult
for some and requires an individual to hear things they may not be open to
hearing or just hearing things that aren't said because oftentimes it isn't
what's said that's important, it's what isn't said that can mean the most.
Hearing that usually takes place upon reflection because most of us aren't
intellectually fast enough to respond instantaneously. Active listening is a
tool and a skill that can help an executive every day. It merely requires
the thought and the practice.
