News Brief

Cybercrime is going to get worse - says U.S. Attorney General - It's one of the biggest challenges for Fed law enforcement  Thousands of newly minted credit cards with Targets numbers are appearing. "This nation needs to be afraid of where we could be after a cyberattack," he said. "When you see the proliferation of these cyber capabilities to criminal organizations, to nation states, our nation is at risk. Our infrastructure is at risk. And we as a nation have not, I think, adequately responded to it," Attorney General Holder told Congress yesterday. U.S. law enforcement authorities are also looking into reports that part of the computer code used to hack into Target was written in Russia, leading some to suspect that international organized crime networks played a part.

NYC Mayor De Blasio Moves Closer to Settling Battle Over Stop-and-Frisk  The administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio signaled on Thursday morning that it had moved closer to a settlement in the long-fought legal battle over the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policies, which a federal judge found last summer to have violated the rights of minorities in the city. The Bloomberg administration had appealed that ruling, including the appointment of a federal monitor to oversee broad reforms in the department. But Mr. De Blasio’s Law Department asked the appeals court on Thursday to return the case to the lower court for 45 days “to permit the parties to explore a resolution,” a legal filing shows. The Mayor is holding a press conference today to announce an agreement. Editors Note: Obviously being the fuel that started the NYC racial profiling issues right before the holidays, it's time for this to end. (Source nytimes.com)

Target hackers used credentials stolen from a vendor to get in the back door  The hackers breached the discounter's systems by using electronic credentials stolen from a vendor. The finding will help to start unraveling the riddle of how the software that carried out the attack got into Target's systems. It also underscores the risks companies face as they operate vast, interconnected business systems. We can confirm that the ongoing forensic investigation has indicated that the intruder stole a vendor's credentials which were used to access our system," Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said. Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Target clamped down on access to two such systems: a human resources website called eHR and a database for suppliers called Info Retriever shortly after learning of the attack. The company has "lots of different platforms" that various parties can access, Ms. Snyder said. (Source wsj.com)

Target hack similar to TJX hack - same techniques & Two million Target cards released for sale on black market on Jan 21st  In each of these cases - TJX & Target, an SQL Injection attack resulted in malware being placed on the network and credit card or personal information being exfiltrated from the network. Meanwhile, the cybercrook known as Rescator and his merry band of thieves who are selling cards stolen in the Target breach continue to push huge new batches of stolen cards onto the market. In an update on Jan. 21, Rescator’s network of card shops released for sale another batch of two million cards apparently stolen from Target, a collection of cards which these crooks have dubbed “Eagle Claw.” Editors Note: If we know this amount of info and actually see the Target cards being sold in the black market where are the authorities? We all know it's the eastern block countries and with the billions of dollars involved why haven't we declared war on these organized crime gangs. Early reports indicated that there's still three more retailers expected to release any time that they too have been hacked. So where is the Obama Administration and why haven't they done more? Yesterday's comments from the Attorney General were only fitting but with some experts able to find the information and cards in this article alone, you'd expect federal law enforcement to be way ahead of this learning curve. It's time to act and its time to shut these gangs down. The retail industry has been through enough over the last 5 years and we certainly don't need to lose $5B more over the next few years merely cleaning up this mess. Target alone will end up spending over a billion dollars on theirs. It's time for all of the retail CEO's and the Trade Associations to put pressure on the Administration and not just put together groups or demand the inevitable EMV roll-out. We need something done now! And you can't tell me they don't know exactly the gangs involved. (Source krebsonsecurity.com)

The future of the IP video market in North America  In 2014 and beyond, three technological trends will be the vanguard of the IP video market, according to Oliver Philippou, market analyst, video surveillance & security services, at IHS Research. Panoramic cameras, audio network cameras and thermal cameras being channeled to the commercial market all are projected to drive strong, sustained IP camera growth across several major verticals in North America, Philippou said during a presentation on the network video market in North America tailored for the TechSec audience. “In 2013, over 70 percent of network cameras shipped had unidirectional or multidirectional audio capability,” he said. When asked how network camera manufacturers will account for the ever-expanding trove of video data that needs to be managed, Philippou said the market will lean on more technologically sophisticated and selective means of storage. These solutions will rely on the continued advancement of video analytics, he said, as well as on enhanced methods of video streaming and better compression technology.

Sears Canada to lay off 624 workers in second round of lay offs this month  Most of the reductions will be in middle management at Sears department stores, affecting an average of five employees per location, Sears Canada said in a release. The company also said it will rework its regional and head office structure to reflect the latest changes and to align it with the smaller business. Two weeks ago Sears Canada said about 1,600 positions would be affected as it moved ahead with plans to shutter its three Canadian call centers and reduce staff at its warehouses. (Source cbc.ca)

Organizational Psychologists Announce the Top 10 Workplace Trends for 2014 - A must read for the True Leader  1 - Big data – Big data will continue to make its presence felt, but more emphasis will be placed on finding practical, meaningful results. 2 - Increasing efficiency – “Working faster and better with less” has become the mantra of many organizations. 3 - The talent question – How do organizations find rare or unique talent. 4. New ways to test – Testing on small-screen devices, such as smartphones and tablets, will become more common. 5. Gamification – Gamification of more HR processes and workplace experiences, such as selection, employee development and training, will continue to grow as organizations think about ways to engage their employees, assess skills and attract talent. 6. Integration of technology in the workplace – From scanning social media in selection to performance tracking and monitoring software, the use of technology in the management of human resources will continue to grow. 7. Work-life balance – Because of social media, smartphones and telework, the lines between personal and professional lives will continue to blur. 8. Social media – Organizations increasingly will use social networking sites, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, to screen employees and make other employment-related decisions. 9. Telework – Increasingly, work is becoming the “thing” you do and not a place you go – more people are working remotely from their homes or satellite locations. 10. Alternatives to full-time – SIOP members predict that organizations will continue to see more people working part-time or as consultants, temporary workers and contractors. (Source ehstoday.com)

Self-Check out: Technology makes UK a nation of thieves  The U.K. is being turned into a nation of thieves by the increasing number of self-service checkouts, a new survey indicates, with one in five Brits using the technology to steal from supermarkets. Some £1.6 billion ($2.65 billion) worth of shopping is being stolen from self-service checkouts each year according to a research by the VoucherCodesPro website – and that's just in Britain. There were 26,800 shipments of self-checkout terminals globally in 2012, according to consulting firm RBR, which forecasts this number to come in at 35,400 for 2013, and reach nearly 60,000 by 2018. But VoucherCodesPro's survey of 2,634 people found that almost 20 percent said they had stolen items via self-service checkouts in the past – and over half said they did so because they were less likely to be caught. Some 57 percent said they were driven to stealing an item because it would not scan. According to the poll, the average person who does steal thieves 15 pounds worth of products per month.

Man dies after struggle with security at Northland mall  A 24-year-old man is dead after he was pepper sprayed in an encounter with security at the Northland Center mall in Southfield, Mich. Southfield Police say that the man had been observed outside a store a couple of days ago and had revisited the store Tuesday evening. The owner felt uncomfortable and called for the mall security. Northland Center Mall General Manager Brent Reetz says the man had been loitering outside the LA Jewelry store and personnel were concerned. The security guards tried to talk with the man who they felt was not being cooperative. There was a struggle and pepper spray was used to bring the situation under control. The man went unconscious and the security guards called for back up and paramedics. By the time the Southfield police arrived, the man had a pulse, but was not responsive. The man had no obvious signs of blunt force trauma. An actual cause of death is still to be determined by the Oakland County Medical Examiner. The investigation into the incident is continuing.

Is Your Back Door Protected?

Detex introduces a maximum security, multi-point lock so big and strong that it stands up to assault by the bad guys and reduces employee and customer theft.

The ECL-230X-TDB is a heavy-duty, easy to install three-bolt multipoint lock whose construction takes panic hardware to a whole new level of toughness and eases your back-door security worries. It is designed with a larger deadbolt that goes deeper into the frame than other locks in the category. Connecting rods are solid steel, rather than the less reliable hollow rod/cable construction. Life safety and code compliant, the new Detex ECL-230X-TDB serves as both panic hardware and a maximum-strength locking device.

The ECL-230X-TDB includes a photo-luminescent sign available in more than 10 color/language combinations, 100 decibel alarm and 3 locking points per door.

● Top Deadbolt – approximately 1” wide by ½” thick deadbolt, the top bolt provides additional stability to the top corner of the door.
● Side Deadbolt – 2 ¼” tall by ½” thick deadbolt with a 1” throw allows for ¾” penetration into strike (Detex recommends Flush installation for maximum security). With 1.6875 square inches of bolt engagement, the side deadbolt provides superior defense against pulling and prying on the side of the door.
● Bottom bolt – 5/8” HEX bolt with ¾” throw, engages the floor with 5/8” penetration provides better attack resistance and superior defense against the “peeling up” of the bottom of the door.

Together, the 3 bolts withstand 16,000 lbs. of pull force.

Add suffix DX3 (ECL-230X-TDB-DX3) for 6 locking points for even stronger security. Single- and double-bolt and weatherized models are also available. Optional accessories include hinge side locking bolts and inside pull handle.

Combining the ECL-230X-TDB with Detex’s DX Bolts provides an additional line of defense against break-ins via additional locking points. Even if the exterior door hinges are compromised the DX bolts keep the door locked and secure. These passive deadbolts are easy to install and offer another layer of attack resistance.

Other 230X models include ECL-230X (Dead Bolt Only), ECL-230X-W (Weatherized Dead Bolt), ECL-230X-TB (Top and Bottom Bolt), ECL-230X-W-TB (Weatherized Top and Bottom Bolt), ECL-230X-TD (Top and Dead Bolt), ECL-230X-W-TD (Weatherized Top and Dead Bolt), and ECL-230X-W-TDB (Weatherized Top Bolt, Dead Bolt and Bottom Bolt).

Almost all hardware and accessories can be customized with different finishes, colors, sizes, and more. Ask us how this new generation of life safety and security hardware can make a powerful difference at your back door.

Tip of the Day

Repetition is one of the keys to success. Developing and evolving your approach, your message, your actions and processes and focusing on repetitively delivering them, you'll be able to almost transcend your message and focus on its delivery as opposed to its action. We all have core things we do every day and if you can develop repetitive responses, that ensures continuity, you can then begin to master what you do and truly make an impact on the group you're working with.
