Forensic LP Expanding in the U.S.

1st Forensic Science-Based LP System Installed in New York State
Swiss Watch Maker, Richard Mille, to Deploy the Crime-Fighting Technology
Luxury Swiss watch manufacturer, Richard Mille, is the first in New York State – and fourth in USA – to deploy the Intruder Spray System (from SelectaDNA), which utilizes forensic science to reduce burglary, robbery and high-value theft by a documented range of 40 to 86 percent.

The cutting-edge technology was installed at the world-renowned watch brand’s architecturally stunning flagship boutique, located on ‘Billionaire’s Row’ on 57th Street in Manhattan.

The system uses the power of forensic marking science to considerably deter crime and, if a crime is committed, enhances law enforcement ability to irrefutably identify criminals, then apprehend and prosecute them. The technology has been used for more than ten years in 46 countries on five continents. It is now available and beginning to be deployed in the United States.

When the system is activated, the invisible, non-toxic and water-based forensic solution remains on marked criminals’ skin for four to six weeks, and clothing for two to three months. The solution is only visible via a special frequency UV light, leaving criminals exposed to identification and apprehension well after leaving the crime scene.

How Long Before Amazon Begins Selling ‘Surveillance as a Service’?
It certainly appears that Amazon’s continued encroachment into the residential security arena is primed to grow by leaps and bounds — block by block — using drones for monitoring home safety.

At least that is what the mega retailer envisions in a recently awarded United States patent that details how “[a]n unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) may perform a surveillance action at a property of an authorized party.”

Originally filed in 2015, the patent explains how Amazon’s UAVs could be employed to spot potential life-safety threats such as fires or even open garage doors, broken windows and the like, prior to alerting property owners.

These electric drones fly up to 15 miles and deliver packages under five pounds to customers in less than 30 minutes. “And, with the help of our world-class fulfillment and delivery network, we expect to scale Prime Air both quickly and efficiently, delivering packages via drone to customers within months,” explains Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO of global consumer, in a blog post.

Organized Crime Groups Becoming More Professional & Harder to Detect

New Counterfeiting Report Warns That Fake Trade is Growing
Most counterfeiting is carried out by ever more professional, organised crime networks, which can reap large profits while running relatively few risks. So says a first EU-wide intellectual property crime threat assessment from the European Union’s policing agency, Europol, and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

It concludes: “More organised crime groups are specialising in one particular crime, producing better quality counterfeit goods, controlling the whole marketing process from production, to distribution, to the points of sale, most often under the pretence of legitimacy. They have also made better use of their available resources, for example using illegal laboratories and the same skilled workers for synthesising both counterfeit medicines and drugs.”

The threat assessment also stresses that, as well as the traditional categories of counterfeited clothes, footwear and luxury products, there is a growing trade in fake products which have the potential to damage human health. An example of this would be the trade in counterfeit medicines for the treatment of serious illnesses, which appears to be increasing.

Fake goods are increasingly shipped via small parcels and express couriers, harder for enforcement authorities to detect. Counterfeiters continue to exploit the anonymity the internet; but don’t need to use the ‘darknet’. Counterfeit goods that are less obviously illegal, especially clothing, cosmetics, electronics and pharmaceuticals, continue to be mostly sold on the surface web, on widely available trusted platforms and by online pharmacies, according to the report.

Walmart, Lowe’s And Others Are Getting Real About Training: How Immersive Tech Works
It’s travelled from the cockpit to the store aisle, but we never have to look beyond our nose to get what will likely transform our shopping experiences for possibly decades to come. Immersive training, enabled through virtual reality software and headsets, is becoming a mainstay of major retailers, for a variety of scenarios. Originally seen as a method of safely and affordably placing workers in critical situations — think hospital operating rooms or robberies — more brands, from Walmart to Lowe’s, are finding virtual reality as a proven method for teaching old-fashioned customer service.

According to research by Capterra, nearly 33% of small and midsize U.S. businesses are expected use virtual reality in employee training by 2021, with projections it will get employees up to full productivity 50% faster than traditional instruction. Because the technology replaces actual in-store equipment and is getting pretty affordable — estimates are a virtual reality-ready laptop can run for $1,000 — the return on investment is justifiable. By comparison, in early 2018, 32% of retail employees said they didn’t receive any formal instruction.

$174 Million Paid Over Background Check Lawsuits
Employers resolving class-action lawsuits over alleged background check violations paid out a total of $174 million, a news report says.

The companies that provided those reports to employers paid another $152 million when they were sued directly by individuals for allegedly violating the Fair Credit and Reporting Act (FCRA).

Forty employers have paid out $1 million or more in FCRA employment settlements since 2011. The database includes settlements involving:

● Wells Fargo ($12 million)
● Target ($8.5 million)
● Uber Technologies ($7.5 million)
● Publix Super Markets ($6.8 million)
● ($5 million)
● Home Depot ($3 million
● Domino's Pizza ($2.5 million)

Workplace Violence: How to Identify and Mitigate It in Your Enterprise
How can workplace violence be identified and prevented? According to the US Department of Labor, indicators of workplace violence may include:

● attendance problems
● decreased productivity
● inconsistent work patterns
● marked changes in personal grooming habits;
● inappropriate comments, threats, throwing objects
● evidence of possible drug or alcohol use/abuse
● evidence of serious stress in the employee's personal life

This is where security technology, specifically, solutions that keep potential dangerous individuals out of your enterprise, can play a major role. For example, watchlists of known perpetrators that are incorporated into a visitor management system are an effective tool to ensure that only authorized people enter your facility. Integrations between perimeter protection detection systems (e.g., facial-recognition camera systems) with cloud-based visitor management systems, can sent alert your administrators, security personnel, Point of Entry (POE) Staff and even the local police to an unwanted visitor before they get to any of your entry points.

Background screenings of visitors can quickly screen a visitor and decide if he or she should be welcomed or turned away. Premium solutions allow you to nearly instantly screen incoming visitors against the National Sex Offender Database, your own custom Watch List of unwelcome visitors, and your own custom VIP List. Many solutions allow you to quickly (and silently) communicate with your security team in the event of an emergency so you can initiate your emergency protocol.

Treating the #MeToo Movement as an Opportunity to Create Better Workplaces
HR professionals and organizational leaders should treat the eruption of such mandates as an opportunity—not an obligation, said Glen Kraemer, an attorney with Hirschfeld Kraemer in Santa Monica, Calif.

Sexual-Harassment Claims on the Rise
HR professionals and the federal government are seeing more sexual-harassment claims since the #MeToo movement went viral in October 2017. Thirty-six percent of HR professionals who responded to a 2018 SHRM survey said the number of sexual-harassment allegations they received increased between 2017 and 2018.

Training Considerations
Employers should move toward a more results-oriented training program that features fresh content and new instructional methods. The focus should be less on liabilities and how to avoid them, and more on the behaviors and communications that can create the perception of harassment and bullying, Kraemer said.

Multistate Employer Policies and Programs
Employers should consider adopting the law of the location that is most robust in protecting the rights of employees, Kraemer said. For example, multistate employers with operations in California may incorporate the state's broader definition of hostile work environment into their policies for all locations.

NRF: Technology is dramatically improving consumers' shopping experience
Consumers are embracing the use of retail technology to improve their shopping experience, according to the latest issue of the Consumer View report released today by the National Retail Federation.

“Technology has become part of our everyday lives, and consumers are open to adopting technologies that make shopping easier,” NRF Vice President for Research Development and Industry Analysis Mark Mathews said. “Retailers know this and are embracing investments in technologies that improve customer service and the customer experience whether it’s online, in store or on mobile devices.”

According to the report, 63 percent of consumers say retail technologies and innovations have improved their shopping experience on mobile devices while 66 percent said they have done so in stores and 80 percent online.

The report found that there are numerous opportunities for retailers to simplify shoppers’ path to making a purchase. Consumers are interested in technologies that show whether a product is in stock (55 percent), help them compare prices or read reviews (49 percent), make it easier to find a product or its location (47 percent) or try an item before buying it (38 percent).

UK: Convenience store staff paying the price of Retail Crime
The emotional well-being of convenience store staff is being put at risk by the ever-present threat of crime and seemingly worsening levels of verbal abuse linked to age-related sales, retailers claim. Last week the Co-op Group called for stronger protection for shopworkers, as new figures revealed its staff were subjected to 2,500 incidents of verbal abuse and anti-social behavior over the past three months. Grocery industry charity GroceryAid has launched a new service to provide counselling support to retail colleagues in the aftermath of an accident, robbery or assault in the workplace.

Payment-Card Fraud Funds Terrorism and Other Transnational Crimes

New Research from Terbium Labs Finds an Undeniable Link Between Payment Fraud and Criminal Financing Worldwide

Researchers at the premier dark web data intelligence company, Terbium Labs, have released the findings of new research that examines the deeply intertwined nature of payment fraud and transnational crime. Results from the report illustrate the far-reaching effect of payment fraud – where and how stolen payment data is used to either fund or launder the proceeds from large-scale, pernicious criminal activity across the world.

The research features geographical breakdowns and real-world case studies of how payment-card fraud is used to launder money by organized crime syndicates; subsidize the costs of trafficking in drugs, guns and humans; and provide material support for terrorist groups at levels in the billions of dollars.

A summary of key findings from the research follows:

  • North America has the highest rate of terrorism linked fraud cases, with more than seven times as many cases as Europe.

  • Europe as a whole sees significant fraud links to organized crime, drug trafficking, and money laundering.

  • Eastern Europe uses payment fraud to support drug trafficking, money laundering, and organized crime.

  • Western Europe shows higher rates linking payment fraud and human trafficking.

  • Even with extensive gaps in case documentation, researchers identified more than $1 billion in fraud losses associated with the transnational criminal cases examined.

"Payment fraud is not just a fraud problem. It can no longer be viewed as a non-violent crime, mere annoyance, or unfortunate cost of doing business," said Emily Wilson, VP of Research at Terbium Labs. "Criminal justice agents must strive for a fuller understanding of the role fraud plays in serious criminal cases and the shifting landscape of the fraud economy."

EA Origin had a vulnerability that left 300 million players potentially exposed
EA had to step up its game after researchers found an EA Origin vulnerability that could have exposed millions of people to account takeovers. The flaw exposed more than 300 million players on popular online games such as Battlefield, Madden NFL, NBA Live and FIFA, according to security researchers from Check Point and CyberInt.

The security flaw would have allowed hackers to hijack people's accounts without stealing their login or passwords. That's because it would steal a Single Sign-On authorization token instead, which could give complete control for hackers. Access tokens are an authentication method similar to passwords, as codes generated by services to keep you logged in.

Tech Leaders Are Hiring But Challenges Remain; Security And Cloud Skills In High Demand
Tech teams will continue to grow in the second half of the year, but finding the right talent won't be easy, according to Robert Half Technology's State of U.S. Tech Hiring research. Of the IT hiring decision makers polled, 67% plan to expand their teams by adding full-time employees, up four points from the first half of the year. Eighty-nine percent of those surveyed most recently said it's difficult for their company to find skilled IT professionals.

Respondents cited the following skills as immediately needed for their organizations:

● Cybersecurity
● Cloud security
● Cloud computing
● Cloud architecture
● Business intelligence and reporting services
● Database management
● Virtualization, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation, DevOps

Additional research findings:

Nearly all IT leaders (97%) noted they are confident in their company's prospects for growth in the second half of 2019.

● Besides recruitment, top priorities for tech managers in the next six months include maintaining security, investing in new technologies, innovation and cloud projects.

Industries planning to expand IT teams by adding new positions through the end of the year ranked as follows: construction; business services; banking and financial services; energy, utilities, oil and gas; finance; retail; and healthcare.

AWS Security Hub aggregates security alerts and conducts continuous compliance checks
AWS Security Hub gives customers a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment. It aggregates, organizes, and prioritizes security alerts – called findings – from AWS services such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie, and from a large and growing list of AWS Partner Network (APN) solutions.

The service then correlates findings across providers to prioritize the most important information, highlight trends, and identify resources that may require attention. Customers can also continuously monitor their environment with automated configuration and compliance checks based on industry standards and best practices, such as Center for Internet Security (CIS) AWS Foundations Benchmark.

If these checks identify any accounts or resources that deviate from a best practice, AWS Security Hub flags the problem and recommends remediation steps. AWS Security Hub gives security teams the visibility they need to prioritize work and improve their security and compliance state by centralizing their most important information in one easy-to-manage place.

Email Threats Continue to Grow as Attackers Evolve, Innovate
Threat actors increasingly using malicious URLs, HTTPS domains, file-sharing sites in email attacks, FireEye says.

Email continues to be an extremely effective vector for delivering malicious content because of how adept attackers have become at tricking users over the years.

The latest examples include the increasing use of malicious URLs in emails rather than attachments, a trend toward use of HTTPS domains for hosting malicious sites, and new variants of impersonation fraud.

FireEye recently analyzed a sample set of 1.3 billion emails for the first three months of 2019 and counted more URL-based email attacks than attachment-based ones in the first quarter.

URL attacks involve emails with embedded links pointing to a malware download site or a phishing site designed to steal a user's account credentials or credit card data. Emails containing such links are often harder to detect and block than ones with malicious attachments, according to FireEye.

Security expert calls out Costco and other retailers on bag searches
Security specialist Brian Farr contacted CBC News after he read last week's story about a B.C. man who filed a human rights complaint because the store checked his backpack and not women's purses.

For Farr, who has worked in the security industry for about 25 years as a loss prevention agent, supervisor and now a freelance contractor, the issue isn't about whether the man was discriminated against — it's about the fact that in most cases retailers, by law, aren't allowed to search customers' bags.

Unless a security guard has witnessed a crime, Farr and other experts say, bag checks could violate a person's Charter rights, which protect against unreasonable search or seizure. There are also provisions under the Criminal Code that outline the rules under which police, security guards and other citizens must follow in order to arrest someone.

The Charter applies to people and institutions representing the state, but Vancouver lawyer Kyla Lee, who has represented clients who were wrongfully accused of theft and detained, says case law suggests that private security guards are sometimes seen as acting on the state's behalf.

"Stores don't have that much power to conduct searches of customers bags or searches of any belongings when they're leaving the store," Lee said.

CBC News contacted Costco, but the store declined to comment.

Vancouver mall offers homeless a safe place to sleep
It’s not uncommon to see security guards removing homeless people from business fronts at night. Vancouver’s Pacific Centre is taking a different approach – they’re inviting those with nowhere to go to come sleep on their property. The company is also opening its doors and offering the facilities up to people in need first thing in the morning.

Homeless advocate with the Union Gospel Mission, Jeremy Hunka says when homeless people feel like people care they are more likely to reach out for help. “If businesses reach out and even just treat people with more compassion, it’s more likely for that exchange,” Hunka says. “That relationship can be great for both sides.”

He adds for the most vulnerable people, a little bit of compassion can go a long way, and that compassion can be in the form of a safe place to sleep or the use of facilities. Night shift employees on the property will also conduct life safety checks and are being trained on how to de-escalate confrontations.

‘Retail Apocalypse’ in Canada a Myth: Expert
It’s not all doom and gloom in that sector of the economy. In fact, the retail industry has remained resilient particularly for those retailers who have been successful in adapting to the burgeoning growth in ecommerce. Kruti Desai, Manager of National Research Insights with Data Solutions at the Altus Group, said there is a clear message in all of this - retail isn’t dead, it’s just evolving. And the retail landscape is also changing.

“Yes, we have seen several store closures happen in the last few years but these are also very traditional retailers that left behind larger spaces and now with changing consumer behaviours, preferences, changing habits, these changes are driving the changes in retail which means a lot of these spaces which were left behind that were vacant are now being transformed and they’re being carved out into more innovative store designs that cater to some of the needs from customers,” she said.

Ecommerce is also playing an increasingly more important role in the retail landscape. Its growth has created more demand for logistics processes as well as warehouse and fulfillment centres. It’s also led to more adoption and adaptation to a seamless and efficient omnichannel experience for consumers.

Amazon to extend Prime Day to two days
Amazon is giving customers two full days to shop its annual sales extravaganza, now entering its fifth year.

Amazon announced that Prime Day will start at midnight (Pacific Time) on Monday, July 15 and – for the first time ever – run for 48 hours (compared to 36 hours in 2018.) The online giant is hoping to build on the success of last year’s Prime Day, which Amazon said was its biggest ever and during which it sold more than 100 million products despite an initial technical glitch.

Study: Shoppers set to spend more than ever on Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day 2019 is looking to be the most lucrative shopping event yet — and not just for Amazon.

That’s according to a new study of U.S. and U.K. Prime members from Profitero, which revealed that the annual shopping extravaganza is gaining more steam with each passing year. Seventy-six percent of Prime members in the U.S. are planning to shop on Prime Day this year, up from 63% last year.

Retailers beyond Amazon will also profit. While 98% of U.S. Prime members who plan to shop on Prime Day will do so on Amazon, 34% of U.S. members also intend to shop for deals at other online retailers. And 58% of U.S. Prime members compare prices on other sites first before buying a Prime Day deal on Amazon.

Better Deals, Amazon Fake Reviews Usher Consumers to Prime Day Competitors
Bazaarvoice, Inc., the provider of user-generated content (UGC) solutions, today announced the results of its newest study, exploring the shopping habits of 1,000 U.S. consumers who are planning to shop “Black Friday in July” deals this year.

Initially sparked by Amazon five years ago, “Black Friday in July” refers to the wave of sales that now crop up around Prime Day both from the retail giant and competing retailers hoping to gain a portion of consumers’ spend that led to over $4 billion in sales on Amazon last year. Bazaarvoice’s research explains what drives shoppers’ behavior around Amazon Prime Day and why they are opting to shop with retailers offering similar mid-summer sales.

Based on shopping activity across more than 6,000 retail sites, including those of top U.S. retailers, Bazaarvoice saw a 21% increase in visitor traffic during Prime Day 2018 in comparison to typical traffic. Additionally, the number of shoppers increased by 15%, and the number of orders increased by 11%.

Key findings from Bazaarvoice’s new study include:

● With major retailers offering competing “Black Friday in July” sales, Prime Day shopping now extends beyond Amazon – Outside of Amazon, consumers plan to shop at Walmart (44%), Target (40%), Best Buy (24%) and Macy’s (18%) around Prime Day this year. Shoppers indicate that they shop outside of Amazon because they find better sales (32%) and because other retailers have physical stores nearby (31%).

● Shoppers rank customer reviews as one of the most important factors influencing their “Black Friday in July” shopping

● “Black Friday in July” sales kick off holiday shopping

A Visalia man with a lengthy rap sheet was convicted of yet another crime. This time, prosecutors are hoping they don't see the thief back in court, or the streets, for at least six years. A jury found Jason Hounihan, 42, guilty of burglarizing a Visalia jewelry store. He was convicted of one count of burglary and two counts of vandalism causing more than $400 in damage. Each count is a felony.

Wednesday wasn't the first time Hounihan's fate rested in the hands of 12 people. Hounihan has a prior strike for assault with a firearm in 1997 and convictions for felony weapons possession in 1999, two felony drug convictions in 2008, burglary in 2014, resisting an officer in 2014, and bringing drugs into the jail in 2018. In February, Hounihan was convicted of misdemeanor possession of burglary tools and theft. His most recent run-in with the law was caught on camera the morning of March 24, according to prosecutors.

Making judgments on people is a serious thing and has a ripple effect that goes well beyond your immediate group. We all make judgments on every executive we know and it's human nature to be critical. Leave it to say that the best opinion is one of direct first-hand experience and is based on both sides of every story. It's easy to react to the self-serving opinions of others, but the real professional takes the high road and focuses on what's best for their organization, their team, and their industry.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
