California's Back in the Stone Age
Red Flag Warning: No Power No POS No Customers
Power Outage in California Affects Millions as PG&E Tries to Avoid Wildfire
Seeking to limit fire risk amid high winds, PG&E cuts electricity across Northern California

The lights went off in stages in Northern California on Wednesday, from the forests near the Oregon border, down the spine of the Sierra Nevada and finally through the dense hillside communities across the Bay from San Francisco.

Hundreds of thousands of households lost power when California's largest utility, Pacific Gas and Electric, shut down a vast web of electrical lines as a precaution against wildfires. Not knowing how long the outage would last, residents hurried to gas stations and supermarkets, stocking up on essentials as if a hurricane were bearing down.

It was an extraordinary moment for California. In the state that brought the world the iPhone and the internet as most people know it, residents fumbled for flashlights, hauled jerrycans of gasoline and read instructions on how to manually open their automatic garage doors. In the fifth-largest economy in the world, hundreds of thousands of people were forced off the grid.

By one estimate around 2.5 million people were without power early Thursday morning.

It also contributed to multiple crashes at intersections where traffic lights went dark. Banks and businesses in some Northern California towns shut down; agricultural processing machines were inoperable in the thick of the fall harvest.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, one of the largest concentrations of wealth and cutting-edge technology in the world, the shut-off felt like an anachronism, something that might happen in a less-developed country. Long lines formed at gas stations a dozen or so miles from the headquarters of Apple and Google.

"Millions without electricity is what a third-world country looks like, not a state that is the fifth-largest economy in the world," he said. nytimes.com wsj.com edmdigest.com

Hikvision And Dahua Banned From Buying U.S. Exports
Hikvision and Dahua have been added to a U.S. government list of entities "reasonably believed to be involved, or to pose significant risk of being or becoming involved, in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States."

Indirectly and more broadly speaking, the measure affords a new downside to the Dahua and Hikvision brands in the U.S. market. Anyone concerned about human rights abuses might hesitate to buy from the two companies, although the entity list does nothing to prohibit sales of the company's products. securityinformed.com

Retail's Reality - Making the Case for Fitting Rooms
'8 dressing rooms and what they say about the state of retail'

the reality is that there is a large gap between the promise of technology and what is currently happening in retailers' dressing rooms. While some physical stores have embraced what will certainly become normalized tech in the future, most brick-and-mortar locations are struggling to cover the essentials of providing a clean space with decent lighting where customers feel welcome - and aren't continually being eyed as potential thieves.
"A lot of stores think that it's a shrinkage problem. So they almost look at the dressing room as a negative," said Suketu Gandhi, partner in the digital transformation practice of A.T. Kearney, a global strategy and management consulting firm. Even a customer getting handed a card with the number of items that are being carried into the fitting room can potentially create a negative association with the brand.

Dressing rooms also could position a company better to reframe the brand while pointing to the continued importance of brick-and-mortar locations.

In order to understand the reality of dressing rooms, here is a glimpse at eight different retailers in the Washington, D.C. area and their approach to the experience.

Video Monitoring in the Sights of Guard Companies and Their Clients
How can remote guarding and video surveillance help security directors to go to sleep with complete peace of mind?

Whether they are servicing commercial office buildings, college campuses, brick-and-mortar retail, healthcare facilities or other types of locations, security officer services companies and the clients who employ them are trying their best to keep on top of quickly evolving video monitoring technology. They want to figure out on a continuous basis how video monitoring can help keep their businesses secure, particularly in remote locations or at odd times of the week when a lone worker - or no human at all - is on patrol.

"Technology is a huge player in that space," says Sean Meehan, director of sales and marketing at United Security, Inc. "And clients are always coming to our operations people, and the question they ask us is, 'What type of technology solutions can you offer us that can assist with and improve upon the officer solution that you're providing, at a reduced cost?'

Did Kohl's Pressure or Offer a Deal He Couldn't Pass Up?
Dick's Says Exec Must Give Back $750K After Jumping Ship

Dick's sued its ex-chief technology officer in PA federal court Tuesday, saying he has to return half of his $1.5M signing bonus because he left before his first two years, as per the signed agreement. Hired Nov. 20, 2017 and resigned on Sept. 6 of this year.

Kohl's announced hiring Paul Gaffney on Sept. 6th as their CTO. law360.com

Editor's Note: Sounds like Kohl's wouldn't wait the 75 days. Or someone made a rather poor call. But it is the fourth quarter and it is the CTO position. Bet Kohl's made a deal with him. As all the articles and studies point to, companies are paying top dollar for CTO's, CSO's and CISO's. And a lot can happen in 75 days right before the holidays.

TMA issuing Certificates of Verification to qualifying alarm companies
McLEAN, Va.-Announced in April, The Monitoring Association (TMA) reached an agreement with AT&T to provide qualified alarm companies with a TMA Certificate of Verification that will enable them to apply for eligibility to use FirstNet services for alarm transport communications. TMA has started issuing these certificates.

FirstNet is the nationwide public-safety wireless broadband network platform, built and deployed through a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership between the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) and AT&T. The FirstNet Authority is an independent authority of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

For companies to receive a certificate, they must meet accepted alarm industry standards that result in the transmission of public-safety-related alarms from systems designed primarily to protect life and/or property - robbery, burglary, unlawful intrusion, fire, emergency medical - to a central station monitoring facility that confirms and verifies the authenticity of the alarm and notifies a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for relay to a public safety agency for the purpose of initiating an emergency response. securitysystemsnews.com

Brivo's Steve Van Till to receive SIA's 2019 Lippert Award
SILVER SPRING, Md.-The Security Industry Association (SIA) selected Steve Van Till, co-founder, president and CEO of Brivo, as the 2019 recipient of the George R. Lippert Memorial Award. This honor is presented annually to a distinguished individual for long-term, selfless service to the security industry and to SIA. Van Till will receive the award during SIA Honors Night on Wednesday, November 20, in New York City.

Van Till, a former SIA Board of Directors and SIA Executive Committee member, currently serves as chairman of the SIA Standards Committee, which develops, promotes and advocates security industry standards in a coordinated effort with other standards and specification writing bodies. securitysystemsnews.com

Should Amazon rent out its Just Walk Out tech?
Amazon.com is "in talks" to bring the Just Walk Out technology it uses to support its Amazon Go stores to OTG's CIBO Express stores at airports and Cineworld's Regal cinemas, sources told CNBC. Amazon is also exploring deals with concession stands at stadiums and baseball parks.

While Amazon is seen having a lead over most others, selling its Just Walk Out technology to others will face competition from Microsoft, a slew of technology start-ups, as well as homemade solutions from Walmart, 7-Eleven and others.

A bigger priority may be making retailers more comfortable signing up for AWS, the biggest contributor to Amazon's bottom line. AWS, which controls about half of the cloud computing space, works with many suppliers to retailers but apparently few retailers themselves due to competitive concerns. Microsoft Azure clients in the retail space include Walmart, Walgreens, Kroger and Gap. Target in 2018 moved from AWS to Google Cloud. retailwire.com

Sabotage and Flattery: Two Tried-and-True Tricks to Getting Ahead at Work
There are a few ways to succeed at your company. You can work hard, show initiative, and be reliable and trustworthy. Or you can make others look bad and cozy up to your boss.

Managers are more than twice as likely to sabotage others so they look better at work. Men, more than women, resort to sabotage or duplicitous self-promotion to get ahead. And pretending to like a boss or co-worker and stealing others' ideas are among the most popular of the insincere tactics people use for getting ahead.

"The degree and frequency of deliberate sabotage at work is concerning but enlightening," said Rachel Ernst, Reflektive's vice president of employee success. "People, managers included, are human and therefore fallible."

Motivations for Sabotage

What are the top tactics for sabotaging others at work? According to the survey, pretending to like a co-worker to get information, meeting with a co-worker before a larger meeting to steal his or her ideas, and withholding important information from a colleague ahead of a meeting.

Motivations for sabotage can be competition, ambition or revenge, said Lewis, who has his own experience with sabotage. shrm.org

Flu Season: Ready Your Workplace
Carpooling, crowded workspaces and using public transportation are conducive to the spread of the influenza virus, new research says. People with influenza can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away, and they're most contagious in the first three to four days after becoming ill.

Workers with school-age children or who have children in day care are more than twice as likely to become infected with the flu, Ball State University (BSU) researchers say in their report, The Effects of Employment on Influenza Rates.

Police: Shop in Quakertown Farmer's Market bought
stolen health and beauty items

One Stop Health and Beauty Shop on 201 Station Road in Richland Township bought the stolen items and resold them for profit within the stand and on eBay, the Quakertown Police Department said in a news release. The shop bought the stolen products from many drug-addicted customers who would commit retail thefts at area retail stores, police said. Michael Gill would specifically provide lists to those committing the thefts indicating which items he needed for the stand, police said.

Michael Gill, one of the shop's operators, reported making between $2,500 and $5,000 each weekend in sales, including through the sale of stolen items, and buying about $1,000 in products from private sellers each week, the Bucks County district attorney's office said, citing a criminal complaint.

"Cyber Hunt" Legislation Passes U.S. Senate: Any Implications for Business?
In a legislative environment charitably described as challenging, the fact that the Senate recently passed cybersecurity legislation by unanimous consent is noteworthy and highlights the bipartisan nature of this issue. The DHS Cyber Hunt and Incident Response Act (H.R. 1158) responds to the recent spate of ransomware attacks against government agencies and private sector organizations¹. It would require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to form "cyber hunt" and incident response teams that could be called upon to assist federal, state, and local entities to respond to a ransomware or other type of cybersecurity incident or to identify vulnerabilities in their systems that may increase the likelihood and success of a future attack. While continued government attention to the availability of cybersecurity capabilities should be welcomed by the private sector, the extent to which businesses will directly benefit from this legislation is unclear given its focus. lexology.com

Digital transformation requires an aggressive approach to security
Organizations agree, building security into digital transformation initiatives is a priority, yet the recommended path to progress is unclear, according to a survey conducted by ZeroNorth.

Companies of all sizes and in all industries are experiencing the pains of digital transformation, with 79% of survey respondents indicating their organization already has related initiatives underway.

All participants indicate the importance of digital transformation to the future of their organization, even those who have not yet embarked on a program. Further, identifying bugs, flaws and vulnerabilities throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC) is considered "extremely" (58%) or "very" (42%) important to all participants. helpnetsecurity.com

Security Analysts & SOCs Overwhelmed By Alert Overload
The typical security team today continues to struggle with the same frustrating and potentially dangerous problem:
a sea of security tools that churn out waves of alerts and siloed data that often requires manual correlation - or get altogether dismissed by overburdened security analysts.

"If it takes a SOC analyst more than three clicks to make a decision, he/she is going to move on. They have thousands of other alerts" waiting for them, says Jill Cagliostro, product strategist for security firm Anomali.

That frightening - but understandable - conundrum for security analysts who under so much pressure that they literally pitch some alerts that take too much time to investigate underscores the perils and
real possibility of missing that one needle in a haystack in security operations centers (SOCs) today. At the root of the alert overload, of course, is a mix of multiple security tools from various vendors - most of which don't work together and security analysts don't even have time to fully master.

Organizations on average run some 25 to 49 security tools from up to 10 different vendors, according to the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), and
40% of organizations are so taxed that they can't act upon at least a quarter of their security alerts. And in many cases, that's leading to organizations literally shutting off some alerting functions, SOC vendor CriticalStart found. darkreading.com

USB Drive Security Still Lags
While USB drives are frequent pieces of business hardware, a new report says that one-third of US businesses have no policy governing their use.

Though nearly nine out of 10 US businesses use USB drives in their IT operation, less than half use any monitoring or encryption to protect the data on those highly portable devices. And the trends are getting worse: Only 47% have a policy for lost or stolen drives compared with 50% with such policies in 2017. darkreading.com

FBI: Cybercriminals Are Bypassing Multifactor Authentication
Threat Actors Using Social Engineering, Other Technical Techniques to Circumvent MFA Protections
In a Private Industry Notification issued in September, which Forbes first reported, the FBI notes that cybercriminals and other threat actors are now taking advantage of inherent flaws in multifactor authentication to bypass the security filters in order to take over accounts or steal additional credentials.

In one form of multifactor authentication, a user enters credentials into a system or device and then receives a one-time password to help verify their identity. Now, however, it appears that threat actors and cybercriminals have found new ways to circumvent this type of protection, the FBI warning notes. govinfosecurity.com

Technology: Redefining Loss Prevention

The Future of LP/AP

Mike Lamb, VP of AP, Kroger
Mark Stinde, VP of AP, 7-Eleven
Kevin Colman, Group VP of AP, Macy's

With retail rolling out a multitude of new technologies faster than ever before, how are the core LP/AP executives in the store and at corporate being impacted? How involved are we in these rollouts on the front end? And on the back end, does it change the essence of LP's training, awareness, and investigative abilities?

With e-commerce fraud growing and a number of LP/AP executives now managing those processes, we now have a slight, invisible merging of IT Security and Loss Prevention that is being talked about. How far will this evolve?

In this roundtable discussion, three industry leaders share their perspectives on how technology is impacting LP's role now and in the future.

Battling Account Takeover Risks Without Compromising User Experience
Account takeover and fraud schemes are costing consumers, banks, retail organizations, healthcare and other online businesses billions of dollars each year. What's more, the cost of these attacks is on the rise-according to Riskified, losses from account takeover rose 122 percent from 2016 to 2017 and increased by 164 percent the following year.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is being championed as a means of addressing account takeover schemes and other security vulnerabilities, as it forces people to use something other than a password to confirm they are who they say they are. But the reality is that users perceive 2FA to be a burdensome technology that detracts from their experience and, when given the choice, many prefer not to implement it. Case in point, according to Google, fewer than 10 percent of its users have signed up for 2FA to protect their Google accounts.

As digital transformation efforts continue and customers demand an ever-increasing high-quality, seamless online experience, we can only expect more users to grow more frustrated with the friction introduced by 2FA. As such, in its current form, it's clearly not the right approach for ensuring security while also keeping the quality of the customer experience at the forefront.

Our modern, digital world demands a modern approach that ensures the security of digital accounts while simultaneously prioritizing the customer experience. In addition to the security benefits, a user-centric security approach also helps IT teams get buy-in from other lines of business. Once marketing and sales have an assurance that customer friction will be eliminated unless critically necessary, these departments are much less likely to fight against the introduction of new account protection technologies. securitymagazine.com

E-Commerce Driving Bigger Demand for Smaller Warehouses, CBRE Says
Rents for U.S. warehouses of between 70,000 and 120,000 square feet rose by more than 33.7% over the past five years, to an average of $6.67 per square foot, according to real-estate consulting firm CBRE Group Inc. Availability for such spaces plunged to 7.4% from 11.3% during that same period, the biggest drop of any segment in the broader warehouse market.

By contrast the cost to lease bigger industrial spaces of more than 250,000 square feet-including the big-box warehouses that have traditionally anchored retail and industrial distribution networks-grew by 15.6%, CBRE found. Overall industrial rents rose by 23.9% between the second quarter of 2014 and the second quarter of 2019. wsj.com

Being a mentor can be an extremely worthwhile experience and sometimes the mentee brings mentoring to the relationship as well because we all learn from each other no matter what role we play. And while you may be reluctant or just feel time-strapped, try giving it a chance even for a short time and see what happens. As the old expression goes, one person can make a difference and you could help a fellow LP executive grow beyond their own expectations and, in having helped the number of people we've helped in our mere search role, I for one can say there is no better feeling in the world than helping someone reach beyond! That's what has actually kept me doing what I do for all these years!

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
