Sprint Food Stores Takes Convenience Store Surveillance to the Next Level
Convenience stores have traditionally installed surveillance cameras to deter crime and encourage safety, but too often these have provided images that lacked detail, particularly in low light. Retrieving video has usually been tedious, requiring endless searching and scanning to find the desired footage. Sharing and archiving the video has also been cumbersome, wasting technical and management resources.

Now advanced digital IP video cameras and recorders are capturing clearer images inside and outside the store in various lighting conditions to deter theft, fraud, and unjustified claims such as slip and fall incidents. By providing easily retrievable and emailable surveillance video evidence, this approach is enabling the swift collection of full compensation when store property is damaged. The economical IP network surveillance systems are also enabling executives to efficiently monitor store conditions from anywhere with an Internet connection.

"With an advanced surveillance camera system, a convenience store chain could achieve ROI within a year through better prevention of theft, fraud, and unjustified claims as well as improved operational oversight," says
Todd Harrison, IT Director who oversees loss prevention camera surveillance for Sprint Food Stores, which operates 20 convenience stores in Georgia and South Carolina. risnews.com

Any We Wonder Why Victims Don't Report Sooner:
What we can learn from the Antonio Brown Case?

By Dave Thompson, CFI
VP of Operations, Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates

Here we go again. A report of rape and sexual assault where everyone, including NFL reporters, suddenly becomes an expert on how victims should react after a rape. Unless you've shut yourself off from all news outlets, you are well aware of the federal lawsuit filed in the U.S. District of Miami on September 10 alleging the New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown raped and sexually assaulted his former college classmate and personal trainer.

I have no idea if these crimes occurred, and I'm going to reserve my judgment until further information is released. These are serious allegations and should be investigated thoroughly without prejudice or bias... at least that's how I thought this process worked.

Unfortunately, I made the poor decision of scrolling through Twitter comments on this subject and I was not surprised to see the amount of journalists and other public figures immediately discrediting the complainant's suit.

Sacramento, CA: California lawmakers may trim repeat offenders' sentences
California lawmakers are on the verge of approving legislation to trim prison sentences for repeat nonviolent felonies. Current law adds an additional year to offenders' sentences for each previous prison or jail term.

The bill approved by the state Assembly on Thursday would remove the mandatory one-year enhancement. The bill returns to the Senate on Friday for a final vote on Assembly amendments that excluded certain sex crimes from the measure, as lawmakers wrap up their work for the year.

Supporters said the longer sentences clog prisons and jails, are costly to taxpayers, and do little to deter criminals.
Corrections officials say about 10,000 inmates currently have the one-year bumps in their sentences, while legislative analysts estimate that the change could save tens of millions of dollars a year in lower prison and jail costs. "This enhancement is disproportionately used against persons of color and those that are low income," said Democratic Assemblyman Ash Kalra of San Jose, who carried the bill in the Assembly. "It is unnecessary and ineffective."  sfgate.com

Juul Debates Pushing Back on E-Cigarette Ban
Juul Labs Inc. is debating internally whether to embrace or push back on part of the Trump administration's plan to pull most e-cigarettes from the market, according to people familiar with the matter.

The policy - affecting sweet and fruity vaping products along with mint and menthol - would be a crippling hit to the startup, which generates more than 80% of its sales from flavors that would be banned. But Juul insiders agree that the move could help curb underage vaping and avert an even bigger threat to the market-leading e-cigarette maker: the possibility that the Food and Drug Administration could take Juul off the market altogether. wsj.com

Ensuring Duty of Care for Traveling Employees
Traveling for executives and employees is more challenging than ever with an evolving threat landscape.

According to a study by the GBTA Foundation, three in ten (29 percent) travel managers report they do not know how long it would take to locate affected employees in a crisis. Overall, one-half (50 percent) of travel managers say, in the event of an emergency, they can locate all of their employees in the affected area within two hours or less. Additionally, three in five (60 percent) travel managers rely on travelers to reach out if they need help and have not booked through proper channels.

"Research reveals significant gaps in educating travelers about resources available to them and the existence of protocols should the unforeseen happen," says Kate Vasiloff, GBTA Foundation Director of Research. "Failing to establish and communicate safety measures leaves travelers and organizations vulnerable. As both security threats and technology evolve, even the most robust protocols that once served companies well may now have weaknesses requiring immediate attention and modification."

Tracking employee and executive travel and ensuring their safety is one of the most important tasks for enterprise security executives. Enterprise security must always take into account where an executive will travel, the activities they will undertake and the individual risk profile, which will help to develop an overall risk assessment for the trip and any threat mitigation strategies that should be followed. securitymagazine.com

August retail sales grew 4.1 percent over last year,
but new tariffs present 'downside risk'

Retail sales were up 0.4 percent in August seasonally adjusted from July and up 4.6 percent unadjusted year-over-year, the National Retail Federation said today. The numbers exclude automobile dealers, gasoline stations and restaurants.

"While consumer attitudes about the economy indicate some retreating optimism, the bottom line is that consumer spending remained resilient in August and continued to be a key contributor to U.S. economic growth," NRF Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz said. "Trends remain strong, but August grew somewhat slower than July, which could reflect consumers' concerns about the unpredictability of trade policy. It is too early to assess the impact of the new tariffs that took effect at the beginning of this month, but they do present downside risks to household spending."

New 15 percent tariffs on a wide range of consumer goods from China took effect September 1 and are scheduled to be expanded to additional goods on December 15, covering a total of about $300 billion in imports. In addition, 25 percent tariffs already in effect on $250 billion worth of imports are set to increase to 30 percent on October 15. nrf.com

Old Navy plans to open 800 new stores as it prepares to split from Gap
In a record year of store closings, Old Navy announced plans to open 800 new locations as part of its upcoming split from parent company the Gap. Company officials discussed the plans Thursday during a Gap Investor Day event in New York.

"We'll almost double our fleet to 2,000 stores in North America, predominantly in under-served small markets," Old Navy CEO Sonia Syngal said.

The first Old Navy store opened in 1994 in Colma, California, and as of February, the 25-year-old company had about 1,140 stores. Company leaders said the plan was to open up around 75 stores a year, "focused on off-mall locations."

Gap Inc. officials announced in February that they planned to spin off Old Navy into its own public company in 2020. At the time, officials also said they planned to close around 200 Gap stores over the next three years. Along with Gap, Banana Republic and Athleta would remain in Gap Inc. usatoday.com

California could soon ban facial recognition technology on police body cameras
Retail-focused bill put on hold for now, with hearing planned for next year 

Taking one of the toughest stands in the nation against police use of facial recognition technology, California lawmakers on Thursday passed legislation barring police from installing it on body-worn cameras for three years.

The legislation, which now awaits action by Gov. Gavin Newsom, was scaled back at Newsom's request from an original proposal that called for an outright ban, said Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), who authored the measure. Later, legislators further softened the bill from the governor's proposal to prohibit police use of body cameras with facial recognition technology for seven years.

But Ting said the bill still marks a significant reining in of a technology that is rapidly evolving, little regulated and often questioned over accuracy and privacy considerations.

Many law enforcement groups remain opposed to the legislation, arguing that facial recognition has important uses in tracking suspects and other applications such as finding lost children.

Critics argue facial recognition technology is not reliable enough to be used by law enforcement, and that deployment on body cameras without community input and approval puts thousands of cameras on streets with little oversight. Some studies have shown that the technology is less reliable when identifying people of color and women, causing particular concern in communities of color.

Another bill that would have forced retailers who use facial recognition technology to post a notice for customers informing them of its use stalled this week. Assemblymember Ed Chau (D-Arcadia) said his proposal was held because a compromise could not be reached with retailers who opposed it. Chau said he intended to hold a hearing next year to more broadly examine commercial use of the technology. latimes.com

CISOs: Navigating Operational Conflicts
Today's CISOs need to speak the language of business, says Chris Hetner of Marsh, who offers advice on navigating operational conflicts.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Cybersecurity Summit in New York, Hetner discusses:

● Articulating security metrics to the C-suite;
● Navigating conflicts between security and operations;
● Managing security in a mergers and acquisition scenario.

Hetner is managing director for Marsh's cyber risk consulting business. Previously, he was the senior cybersecurity adviser to the chairman of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. He has over 25 years of experience in cybersecurity, risk management and regulatory compliance. Hetner currently serves as special adviser of cyber risk for the National Association of Corporate Directors. careersinfosecurity.com

Growing board focus on cyber risk challenges current thinking
As digital transformation continues to drive change in the business and risk landscape, business and cyber security leaders need to improve discussions around this topic

I recently had the pleasure of chairing a unique discussion between a panel of active board directors and a room full of cyber risk and information security leaders.

It was a discussion that the security community has long worked to achieve as they battle to have our growing dependence on technology and the associated risks well appreciated at the highest level. It was also very timely as we move into an era of increasing transparency for cyber risks, including at board level.

While this transparency is helping companies better acknowledge the threats we face, our discussion demonstrated that it is also challenging a few perceptions widely held within security communities.

The argument from many chief information security officers (CISOs) for a reporting line that sits outside of the IT department, for example, was soundly challenged by our panel of board directors.

Security managers often pursue such an ideal to assure security autonomy and protect budgets. However, the experience shared in the room demonstrated that IT, more often than not, implements the strategy and can present a barrier if not sufficiently engaged in it. computerweekly.com

Senators tap Amazon's Bezos for answers on reported abuse of drivers
Three US senators urged Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Thursday to look into allegations that the company's delivery contractors are skirting labor laws and risking driver safety. In an open letter, the senators called on Bezos to respond by Sept. 27 with details of Amazon's third-party contracting and training practices, and information on whether the company has engaged in anti-union activity.

The letter cites, among other reports, an Aug. 31 Buzzfeed investigation into the inner workings of Amazon's delivery arm. That report documented a litany of potential labor violations endangering drivers.

"While Amazon has continuously made claims that it treats workers fairly and has 'requirements for safety' in place, fines levied by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration paint a notably different picture," the senators wrote in their letter. "Additionally, growing media reports, regarding Amazon's mistreatment of workers and failure to address lawmakers and agency concerns, are deeply troubling."

The letter was signed by Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sherrod Brown of Ohio. cnet.com

Clay County, FL: Drug distribution center discovered within Boost Mobile
A Boost Mobile store in Clay County is closed after investigators discovered it was really a distribution center for illegal drugs, including heroin and meth. On 9/11/19 the Clay County Sheriff's Office concluded an ongoing narcotics investigation. This investigation led to the discovery of individuals who were operating a Boost Mobile phone store located at 2684 Blanding Blvd. as a distribution center for illegal narcotics to include heroin and methamphetamine. The investigation concluded that employees during normal business hours sold narcotics to individuals acting as common phone buyers. This operation was extensive to the point it not only was a cash operation, but also was common for individuals to trade property for illegal narcotics. The operation resulted in the arrest of more than a dozen individuals and numerous drug seizures. At the time of the arrests several attempts to reach an owner of the store were conducted, but at this time that contact is still pending.  wcjb.com

Being too close to the trees to see the forest is an expression that also fits not appreciating the role you play on your own team. With the needs of the day seemingly always taking priority, it's difficult for some to step back and truly see the value you can add to your own team. Realizing it and accepting the responsibility as a team member is half the battle. But doing something with it and truly adding value is what helps the team win the game. Every group, every department is, in fact, a team and every member plays a vital role in the success and the survival of that team. That's why that old expression - One for all and all for one - took such a hold in literature. Because it is that simple. The hard part is taking responsibility for it.
