EU Cybersecurity Law Cracks Down On Internet Giants
Reuters reported that it obtained documents last week detailing a Network and
Information Security Directive that has been initiated between member states and
EU lawmakers. The details of the security plans, however, remain a subject of
debate as some regulators aren't sure which companies should be bound by the
The regulations are aimed at having search engines, social networks, eCommerce
sites and cloud-computing providers keep authorities informed about potential
breaches. While some are arguing to include more companies, some members of the
European Parliament suggest that it should only be implemented for major
sectors, including energy, transport and finance, Reuters reported.
Now, however, the Internet platforms have been tossed back into the discussion,
according to details listed in the documents. Digital platforms would be subject
to the EU law, according to recent updates that reportedly came after months of
negotiations. Those platforms might be able to be held at a lesser standard than
the other sectors listed though since they aren't as linked to physical
infrastructure and national security issues.

Raleigh target 'Organized Retail Crime' after man's 18th arrest - Detective
partnering with Macy's for training Durham Police are taking action
following a string of retail crimes, they say, were all committed by the same
person. O'Marshall Mason's been arrested 18 times for a variety of offenses,
including several cases of larceny. Police say Mason pleaded guilty and is now
in jail, after he was caught on surveillance video stealing soap from a Durham
Walmart last year. They say he's also stolen items from TJ Maxx, Home Depot
and Macys, as part of a scheme they call "Organized Retail Crime." What
he's doing is not shoplifting. That is organized retail crime," Detective
Deborah Smith with Durham Police said. "Larceny and shoplifting is normally one
person taking something for their personal use. They usually don't go out and
take that one little item and try to sell it and get financial gain for it."
That case prompted Detective Smith, along with a Raleigh officer to partner with
Macys for a special training to help stop that kind of crime. wncn.com

How you leave an employer and how you start with a new employer
are very critical segments of time because they can tend to label executives and
those labels can last a very long time. Interesting how short the time periods
are relative to an executive's actual career. But the exiting process and the
on-boarding periods leave long-term impressions that follow executives.
Regardless of why an executive leaves, the important thing is to leave
professionally, quietly and making sure the employer has a detailed report on
all of your projects and work. And most certainly respect their intellectual
property which, in today's world, virtually every company has been a victim of
intellectual property theft. According to most recent surveys, 33% of employees
have stolen intellectual property and this is a major concern for every company
and is the primary reason some employers require the departing executive to
leave the day of their resignation.
