'War in Dallas' - Civil Unrest, Horrific Violence Continues
Snipers kill five police officers in Dallas, wound seven others during BLM
At least five Dallas police officers were killed and seven others wounded
Thursday evening as a protest over recent police shootings was interrupted by
chaos - marking the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since Sept.
11, 2001. After a peaceful Black Lives Matter march, the downtown suddenly
exploded into violence at around 9 p.m. local time when gunshots echoed through
the streets, sending protesters and police officers alike scattering for cover.
Authorities said two civilians were also injured during the shooting. Four
Dallas Police officers and one Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer were killed by
“snipers” perched atop “elevated positions,” officials said.
Videos circulating on social media showed an individual with an assault-style
rifle shoot a police officer in the back at point-blank range. A gunman,
believed to be the same shooter, then engaged in a violent, three-hour standoff
with SWAT officers, police said. The Dallas police chief said Friday that the
gunman who engaged in an hours-long standoff with authorities “said he was upset
about the recent police shootings” and that “he wanted to kill white people,
especially white officers.” Police said this gunman died when police
detonated an explosive after the standoff. Three other suspects were also in
custody, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said during a press conference before
the standoff’s end.

violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to use credit card

customers were forced to share their personal identification numbers out loud.
In the suit the National Federation for the Blind says that the retailer
violates their privacy and the ADA by failing to use card readers with Braille
numbers on their PIN pads at its J. Crew and Madewell stores.
Other large retailers hit with similar suits include Build-A-Bear Workshop Inc.,

NRF Survey Says It’s Card Companies Who Are Holding Up Chip Cards
A new survey, conducted in May and June, found that 48 percent of retailers
responding had already implemented the new “EMV” chip card system or expected to
have done so by the end of June. A total of 86 percent expect to have EMV -
short for Europay MasterCard Visa - up and running by the end of the year.
Of those who had not implemented, 57 percent said they had already installed
the card readers and other equipment but were still waiting for certification by
the card industry so they could turn it on.
And 60 percent of those said
they had been waiting for six months or longer.

Global mPOS providers flood U.S. market following EMV shift
Before October 2015, most European mPOS providers were not particularly

companies, like U.K.-based SumUp, have shifted their attention across the pond.

How Amazon triggered a robot arms race, revolutionizing the world’s warehouses
and putting human jobs at risk
An Amazon warehouse is a flurry of activity. Workers jog around a man-made

the floor like giant, sentient hockey pucks, piled high with towers of consumer
gratification ranging from bestsellers to kitchenware. Amazon has about 30,000

Walmart still on track to refuse Visa unless
retailer may lose customers
The clock is ticking on Walmart's pledge to stop accepting Visa cards at its
Canadian stores. The retail giant confirmed that starting on July 18,
customers will no longer be able to use the credit card at its three
locations in Thunder Bay, Ont. Beyond the Thunder Bay dates, the U.S.
retailer would not say when it plans to drop the credit card from the rest
of its more than 400 Canadian locations.
announced on June 11 that "unacceptably high fees" for credit card
transactions had prompted it to stop accepting Visa cards. Soon after
Walmart announced it was dropping Visa, the credit card company
hit back, claiming the retailer was being disingenuous and unfair by
using consumers as bargaining chips.
A new survey from the Angus Reid
Institute finds that 59 per cent of Canadians support the big-box retailer
in its decision to stop accepting Visa at certain stores, saying the fee
Visa charges merchants is too high. But Angus Reid found that 46 per cent of
Walmart shoppers who have used a Visa card at Walmart in the last year say
they will be less likely to shop at the store in the future if the retailer
stops taking Visa as a form of payment.

A 23-year-old man has been arrested in a string of robberies in

Man impersonates Canada Post
employees to steal $40,000 of electronics
Impersonating a Canada Post delivery person was one ruse used by
a fraudster who allegedly ran a GTA-wide, online shopping scam using stolen
credit card information to buy about $40,000 worth of electronics. The man made
14 separate orders which included laptops, digital cameras and in one instance a
drone from Best Buy, using a copy of victims’ credit cards, then had the goods
shipped to the cardholders’ homes. Sometimes the man would lay in wait for the
delivery person and sign for the package himself. On other occasions, “... they
would wait for the package to be delivered and actually knock on the door and
claim that they were with Canada Post and that the package had been delivered in
error, and they were there to retrieve the package,” said Det. Mark Underwood.

Online Marketplaces Face
New and Unexpected Risk Threats –
The marketplace revolution has been a boon, but it’s not without risk.
All these factors – the massive growth in the number of online
merchants, the ease with which one can join a marketplace, the anonymity
provided by being part of an army of merchants under the banner of a big
marketplace, and the built in ability to process payments – have led to a
corresponding exponential rise in the level of fraud and money laundering
activities. One of the newest scams, transaction laundering, has been
growing at exponential rates, and poses a major challenge for marketplaces,
as it exposes them to regulatory risk, and threatens their brand and
In a basic transaction laundering scheme, the scammers
set up a merchant account and put up a legitimate-looking marketplace page,
where users can ostensibly shop for everyday items. For example, a merchant
can set up a marketplace site to sell small hand-made wooden toys, a
legitimate site selling legitimate products. But this same merchant also has
a site selling, for example, counterfeit goods, priced at the exact same
levels as the toys. When a customer buys from the counterfeit goods site,
the merchant simply credits the sale to the legitimate toy site, assigning
the sale to the toy that has the same price as the phony product. Thus, the
merchant is able to process an illegal sale using the credit card of a
customer that, for all the world, looks like a normal, legitimate sale.
According to our findings, 6% to 10% of unauthorized e-commerce sites
are unknown and unidentified, possibly used by cyber-crooks for various
scams, including transaction laundering.
Good Bots, Bad Bots:
Changing the Way We Approach Cybersecurity?
Let’s face it – bots are ubiquitous in cyberspace. Like them or not, you can
expect to keep coming across them. A lot of them are good bots, which, as
Imperva reported, are there simply to gather information. But on the flip
side, as Imperva’s report pointed out:
Meanwhile, bad bots remain a
constant threat because their prime directive is to prey on big and
successful targets. In other words, as a website becomes more popular, so
does the incentive to attack it. But the research found that there is a
Humans, the report said, are taking back the Web
and are responsible for the bulk of traffic on the Internet. However, it
seems like humans are replacing good bots because bad bot traffic has been
static, at about 30 percent of all Web traffic.
We know that bad bots
can cause a lot of damage, but a Radware study from earlier this year sees
good bots leading the cybersecurity charge, replacing the human element. As
Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions at Radware, told IT Pro
As defenses continue to succumb to an endless flood of

MO: Grab & Run Thieves hit 6 St Louis area stores in last few weeks
Police in Arnold, Mo. are tracking a crime trend where thieves enter
department stores, scoop up as much merchandise as they can carry, and bolt
out of the store to a car that’s waiting for them. Officers say the thieves
have hit six St. Louis area cities during the past several weeks. On
Wednesday, Arnold police arrested a man who tried to steal $350 worth of
designer purses and $300 worth of shoes from the Ross Dress for Less store.

advice you've probably gotten was "find a mentor." While they are helpful

Looking at one's career should be viewed as a long-term investment tool that
maximizes the individual's return on their efforts. Similar to any other
investment strategy, a career is the building blocks for retirement.

one reaches a balance is the key and making sure you challenge yourself
about them periodically is wise.
