NYPD Embracing Tasers
Now - A Change in Direction
Will we see more use in shoplifting cases?
Even as police departments across the country embraced
Taser stun guns over the past 15 years, the
New York Police Department kept them out of the hands of almost all
officers. Only some sergeants and members of a specially trained
unit were issued the handgun-shaped weapons, and regulations
required many of them to keep the devices in the trunks of patrol cars.
The history: The restrictions were rooted in the
department's troubled history with an earlier generation of stun guns, most
notably an episode 30 years ago in which officers in a Queens precinct
tortured prisoners with one. More recently,
in 2008, an officer with the elite Emergency Services Unit fired a Taser
at an emotionally disturbed man on a ledge in Brooklyn. The man fell some 10
feet to his death, and the lieutenant who had given the order to fire the
Taser committed suicide eight days later.
Now the Police Department, under different leadership and amid national
anger over police killings of unarmed black men, is easing its
limits on Tasers, which shoot electrified barbs. Over the last
year, the Police Department has trained about 4,000 officers to use the
devices, bringing the number of Taser-trained officers to nearly 10,000 on a
force of about 36,000. In all, 1,710 Tasers are in circulation, nearly
triple the number in 2015. A decade ago, 160 Tasers were in use.
The Reason: The Police Department's decision to equip more
officers with Tasers came amid the outcry in 2014 when
Eric Garner died after an officer placed him in a chokehold while
arresting him for selling untaxed cigarettes on Staten Island.
Restrictions: As the department has distributed more
Tasers, it has also lifted some restrictions on their use.
Until May, officers were prohibited from using a Taser to stun a person more
than three times. Each discharge, or "cycle," lasts five seconds and
delivers a shock of 50,000 volts, which is intended to immobilize a suspect,
but also causes
a level of pain often described as excruciating.
New Guidelines, there is no explicit limit on how many
times officers may stun someone. But the guidelines say officers "should
consider that exposure" for more than 15 seconds - or three cycles - may
increase the risk of death.
As of late June, the police had
used Tasers 214 times this year. Some 79 percent of the
encounters involved physical confrontations with unarmed people, he
said. About 19 percent of the episodes involved people armed with knives,
blunt instruments or other weapons.
Security Guard Robot Maker Knightscope issues
report on Stanford Mall incident Robot just didn't sense or see the
obstacle/child plain and simple
Knightscope issued a formal apology to the family of the child, calling it a
"freakish accident." But on Business Wire, Knightscope says that their robot
initially tried to avoid the child.
"A child left the vicinity of his
guardians and began running towards the machine," the report states. "The
machine veered to the left to avoid the child, but the child ran backwards
directly into the front quarter of the machine, at which point the machine
stopped and the child fell to the ground."
Teng told the Mercury News
that instead of halting, the machine moved forward as her son lay facedown
on the ground. In its report, Knightscope agrees that the robot's sensors
did not register an obstacle correctly.
Knightscope continues on to
say that K5 Autonomous Data Machines have driven over 25,000 miles and
operated over 35,000 hours without any reports of incidents like the one
Office Depot's Defend
Claim Revived In $30M Fight With AIG
California federal judge will reconsider a dismissed duty to defend claim in
Office Depot's $30 million lawsuit seeking coverage from
AIG Specialty Insurance Co. for a whistleblower suit after looking over
the filings again and concluding the insurer never actually moved to toss
the defend claim. U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson said he would
reconsider the claim in an order Thursday. Office Depot had argued in a
motion for reconsideration last month that its duty to defend claim should
be revived because it is distinct from a duty to indemnify.

Sears Holdings says
Kmart is being transformed, not closing doors
You may have seen recent reports that associates at Kmart stores believe
their stores are being phased out as part of a larger plan by parent company
Sears Holdings to shutter the chain. Sears Holdings has denied the report,
insisting that it is in the process of transforming Kmart from a traditional
brick and mortar chain to a new type of retailer.
According to the
reports, Kmart associates have been spooked by the chain's decision to move
inventory from its backrooms to store shelves. Associates see this as
another sign that its parent company is unwilling to make the necessary
investments (see lack of remodels) to put stores in a position to achieve
Sears Holdings responded to the reported concerns with the
following statement to the Consumerist: "Store associates are currently
rolling out a phased project that gets our newly-delivered products on the
stores' shelves immediately rather than in the stock rooms and ensuring that
the member does not wait in line at the checkout."

President's Cyber Response
Directive Gets Mixed Reviews
The private sector and government partnership
Security experts disagree about whether a
new presidential policy directive on how to coordinate response to a
large-scale cyber incident is well-designed.
The new directive, announced
July 26, gives specific roles to the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and
the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to coordinate three lines of
effort: threat response, asset response and intelligence support activities.
In terror-related cyber incidents, the FBI will take the lead to coordinate
the response to an immediate threat, the policy states. The Department
of Homeland Security will lead what the directive calls "asset response," in
which the department provides technical assistance to help victims find the
adversary on their systems, protect their assets and bring systems back online.
The ODNI will integrate intelligence and analysis about the threat and
identify opportunities to mitigate and disrupt it.
"Our new policy
acknowledges that when businesses and federal agencies are the victim of or
experience a significant cyber incident, one of the most important
considerations is likely to be restoring operations and getting back online,"
Lisa Monaco, assistant to the president for homeland security and terrorism,
told a cybersecurity conference on July 26, the day the White House issued the
New White House Policy Defines Coordination of Cyber Response).
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says the directive is another crucial
step to improve national cybersecurity. "It not only clarifies the roles of the
various government actors involved in cybersecurity, it re-enforces the
reality that cybersecurity must be a partnership between the government and the
private sector, and among the law enforcement, homeland security and
intelligence components of the government." govinfosecurity.com
ISF Releases Major Update
for Security Standard Practice Guidelines
Information Security Forum (ISF) has published a major update to its
Standard of Good Practice for IT security professionals and "is the most
comprehensive information security standard in the world."
enables organizations to meet the control objectives set out in the NIST
Cybersecurity Framework and extends well beyond the topics defined in the
framework to include coverage of essential and emerging topics such as
information security governance, supply chain management (SCM), data privacy,
cloud security, information security audit and mobile device security.
The 2016 version of The Standard has been restructured into 17 main categories
for ease of use and improved alignment with ISF member approaches to managing
information security. Its design also offers systematic coverage of four new or
enhanced lifecycles: Employment lifecycle, Information lifecycle, Hardware
lifecycle, and System development lifecycle.
"The best practices defined
in The Standard will normally be incorporated into an organization's information
security policy, business processes, environments and applications, and should
be of great interest and relevance to a range of individuals within the
organization as well as external stakeholders," said Steve Durbin, managing

Canadian Crime Study: Driven by spikes in robbery, fraud and
homicide, police-reported crime in Canada increased in 2015 for the first time in
over a decade
As the D&D Daily reported
last week, police-reported crime in Canada - in terms of
both the Crime Severity Index (CSI) and the overall crime
rate - increased in 2015. This represents the first spike in over 12 years.
According to the annual
Stats Canada report, the CSI rose by 5 percent last year,
and the Violent Crime Severity Index saw a 6 percent jump, "largely
due to increases in robbery, homicide, attempted murder, and
violations specific to the use, discharge and pointing of firearms."
Overall, "there were almost 1.9 million Criminal Code
incidents (excluding traffic) reported by police in 2015,
approximately 70,000 more than in 2014."
The graph below
shows that, while Canada's Crime Severity Index has been steadily
declining for over a decade, 2015 saw a noticeable increase.
The graph below shows that,
in 2015, all three categories of crimes - violent, property and
other - increased since last year:
According to the report, the violent violations with a rate increase
(+5%), attempted murder (+22%), and
homicide (+15%), among others.
Rates for all types of property crimes also
increased from in 2015, including fraud (+15%), possession of
stolen property (+13%), theft over $5,000
(+8%), and breaking and entering (+4%).
Law enforcement officials in
Edmonton both cite the economy as the driving force behind the
nationwide spike in crime.

How to turn friendly
fraud into customer loyalty
friendly fraud, and chargeback fraud will cost e-commerce merchants $6.7
billion this year. The culprit behind the majority of these massive losses
are not identity thieves pillaging retailers with hoards of stolen credit
card information. Instead, 71 percent of losses to fraud are a
result of friendly fraud and chargeback fraud.
True fraud, or unauthorized use, is the result of compromised
payment card information. Fraudsters obtain payment card information from
things like data breaches, card skimming, database hacking, identity theft,
and whatever else they can scheme up to get their hands on payment card
information. Merchants can choose from a variety of front-end fraud
Friendly fraud represents cardholders who unintentionally
misuse their chargeback rights. The hallmark of friendly fraud is the
absence of malicious intent. With friendly fraud, there is no scheming
criminal behind the transaction. The purchase could have been made by the
cardholder himself, but innocently forgotten. Merchants need to remember
that consumers who commit friendly fraud create an opportunity to win a
customer for life.
Chargeback fraud is
the intentional misuse of chargeback rights by a cardholder, with the goal
of retaining the product or service and the amount initially paid. The
transaction had no reason to trigger any front-end fraud prevention
solutions, as it was not fraudulent.
The most critical difference
between true fraud, friendly fraud, and chargeback fraud is this: Revenue
lost to true fraud is sunk, revenue lost to friendly and chargeback fraud is
recoverable. That's a big deal considering the bulk of fraud losses, 71
percent, are attributable to friendly fraud and chargeback fraud.
That means of the $6.7 billion ecommerce merchants will lose to fraud in
2016 $4.8 billion could and should be recovered.
What PayPal and Visa's
Benefits retailers in long run
PayPal customers will be able to use Visa's contactless mobile checkout
technology, Visa Digital Enablement Program (VDEP), to pay in retail stores
with their smartphones.
Visa card issuers will be able to provide
more detail for PayPal transactions on customer statements.. This means a
transaction that used to be labeled as "PayPal" on a card statement will now
list the merchant's name. This will likely decrease the number of customer
service emails and calls to PayPal and retailers.

Passion is probably the one trait all employers look for in every search and
in every candidate. It's also the one ingredient that's hard to manufacture
and almost impossible to fake. Certainly, energy level has a lot to do with
it and virtually everyone can pick it up a notch when they need to. But
passion is something that's deep and something money can't buy and quite
frankly it's worth it's weight in gold because passion motivates people and
it's what separates the good from the great. If you've got passion, let it
show and, if you don't, try to go find it because every employer wants it.
