How Gap Inc.’s LP Leader Also Helps Preserve the Planet

NRF Podcast Interview with Keith White, EVP of Loss Prevention
& Global Sustainability, Gap Inc.

Keith White has a unique title and position. As the executive vice president of loss prevention and global sustainability at Gap Inc., the skills and knowledge acquired through a career in loss prevention help him look at the bigger picture — much bigger than just himself or the company. “I feel like there’s a better nexus between global sustainability and loss prevention,” he says: In one way he’s charged with the responsibility to protect the planet, in the other he’s working to preserve it. On this episode, White joins the Retail Gets Real team to discuss emerging trends in the loss prevention world and how the apparel retailer is taking corporate social responsibility to the next level.

White sees three emerging trends in LP. First, active shooter and other emergency incidents are a growing threat. He stresses the importance of proper training for retail stores, team members, corporate headquarters and everyone on the supply chain so they are prepared to respond appropriately in emergency incidents. The opioid epidemic is “driving people who are educated and have access to wealth to make decisions or to do things that they typically wouldn't do,” White says, “whether it's shoplifting behavior or it's violent behavior.” He urges those in loss prevention to understand the effect the drug has on their businesses."

And he sees a rise in a lack of civility; the behavior of customers, and even employees in some cases, can get out of hand when they feel offended. “It just takes the slightest thing to set people off,” he says. Store employees must be trained to deal with escalated customer behaviors.

Beyond protecting the enterprise, White has a message for those in loss prevention: “If you’re singularly focused on just LP, and you're really good at it, you just might be at risk,” he says, encouraging LP employees to be interested in topics beyond the field. “You don’t want to be that person where they only see you as being one dimensional.” At Gap, White took on more corporate projects including business continuity planning, which allowed him to hone the skills that opened the door to bigger projects.

Company Payouts in Background-Check Class Actions Top $326 Million
Some of America's largest employers -- including Amazon, Target, Uber and Wells Fargo -- have routinely snooped on job applicants' credit records, legal histories and other personal matters in violation of federal rules, according to a corporate watchdog group. The revelations surfaced in a raft of class actions in recent years alleging that big companies improperly conducted background checks while vetting hundreds of thousands of prospective employees, according to Good Jobs First, which tracks corporate misconduct.

The group said this litigation led to employers paying out a total of $174 million over the past decade in settlements. Another $152 million was paid by background-check companies that provided those reports to employers. Job candidates sued the companies under the employment provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), a federal law that seeks to ensure the accuracy, privacy and fairness of information on file with consumer reporting agencies, such as credit bureaus.

Since 2011 more than 40 employers have paid out FCRA employment settlements of $1 million or more. In one of the largest cases, Wells Fargo paid $12 million in 2016 to thousands of applicants. Other large payouts by well-known companies include: Target ($8.5 million), Uber Technologies ($7.5 million), ($5 million), Home Depot ($3 million), and Domino's Pizza ($2.5 million).

Should Retailers Hire More Ex-Cons?
With unemployment rates at or near historic lows, retailers sometimes look in different places to find good workers. According to a recent piece from Bloomberg, restaurant operators such as MOD Pizza, McDonald’s and Firehouse Subs are hiring ex-criminals in order to fill the worker gap.

The website, 70 Million Jobs, is a job board that helps those with criminal records get hired. The site says they look for those who have been out of prison awhile and able to stay out of further trouble. Low-level drug offenders are eligible; those convicted of more serious crimes typically aren’t. There seem to be other websites offering the same service and it appears that many mainstream retailers are now hiring former convicts.

A Fast Company piece says that 60 to 75 percent of those released from incarceration remain unemployed a year after their release. But, according to a poll cited in the same article, 78 percent of Americans are comfortable buying goods/services from a company that hires ex-cons.

Criminals are using deepfakes to impersonate CEOs,
and businesses are largely defenseless - for now

In the first signs of a mounting threat, criminals are starting to use deepfakes — starting with AI-generated audio — to impersonate CEOs and steal millions from companies, which are largely unprepared to combat them.

Why it matters: Nightmare scenarios abound. As deepfakes grow more sophisticated, a convincing forgery could send a company's stock plummeting (or soaring), to extract money or to ruin its reputation in a viral instant.

Imagine a convincing fake video or audio clip of Elon Musk, say, disclosing a massive defect the day before a big Tesla launch — the company's share price would crumple.

What's happening: For all the talk about fake videos, it's deepfake audio that has emerged as the first real threat to the private sector.

Symantec, a major cybersecurity company, says it has seen three successful audio attacks on private companies. In each, a company's "CEO" called a senior financial officer to request an urgent money transfer. Scammers were mimicking the CEOs' voices with an AI program that had been trained on hours of their speech — culled from earnings calls, YouTube videos, TED talks and the like. Millions of dollars were stolen from each company, whose names were not revealed. The attacks were first reported in the BBC.

Big picture: This threat is just beginning to emerge. Video and audio deepfakes are improving at a frightening pace and are increasingly easy to make. There's been an uptick in sophisticated audio attacks over the past year, says Vijay Balasubramaniyan, CEO of Pindrop, a company that protects call centers from scammers.

But businesses aren't ready, experts tell Axios. "I don’t think corporate infrastructure is prepared for a world where you can’t trust the voice or video of your colleague anymore," says Henry Ajder of Deeptrace, a deepfakes-detection startup.

Even if companies were clamoring for defenses, few tools exist to keep harmful deepfakes at bay, says Symantec's Saurabh Shintre. The challenge of automatically spotting a deepfake is almost insurmountable, and there are hurdles still ahead for a promising alternative: creating a digital breadcrumb trail for unaltered media.

Interactive Map: Here’s where the US government is using facial recognition technology to surveil Americans
Across the US, government use of facial recognition technology, which critics say poses a serious threat to Americans’ civil liberties, is on the rise. A new report released Thursday from digital rights advocacy group Fight for the Future visualizes how often US law enforcement agencies use this software to scan through millions of Americans’ photos — often without their knowledge or consent.

While the map isn’t exhaustive, it is one of the most comprehensive guides showing how common and widespread facial recognition use is becoming. The map compiles existing data from the Center on Privacy and Technology at Georgetown Law, news reports, press releases, and other sources - showing where and how the government is applying facial recognition, as well as legislative challenges to the tech’s rollout.

Some examples: In several states, including Texas, Florida, and Illinois, the FBI is allowed to use facial recognition technology to scan through DMV databases of drivers’ license photos. In many US airports, Customs and Border Protection now uses facial recognition to screen passengers on international flights. And in cities such as Baltimore, police have used facial recognition software to identify and arrest individuals at protests.

Judge dismisses lawsuit against Shaw’s by family of woman murdered at Saco store
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Shaw’s supermarkets brought by the family of a woman who was murdered by a knife-wielding attacker inside the company’s Saco store in August 2015.

Wendy Boudreau, a 59-year-old grandmother, was grocery shopping when she was attacked by Connor MacCalister, 35. Boudreau died of her wounds and MacCalister pleaded guilty to murder less than two months later and was given a life sentence, which MacCalister requested.

The suit was brought by Jeffrey Boudreau, Wendy Boudreau’s husband, and the personal representative to her estate. The action was filed in 2017 in U.S. District Court in Portland, and sought damages from the Massachusetts-based supermarket chain because Boudreau suffered conscious pain and suffering between the time of the attack and her moment of death at a nearby hospital, and alleged that the supermarket was culpable in Boudreau’s wrongful death and had a duty to prevent it.

After extensive litigation, discovery and depositions, Judge D. Brock Hornby ruled Thursday that despite an extensive record of MacCalister’s odd and sometimes disturbing behavior at or near the supermarket, Shaw’s management could not have reasonably foreseen MacCallister’s attack.

Mooresville, NC: Lowe's employees fill pails with disaster relief supplies
What began as a Lowe’s Home Improvement corporate response to Hurricane Harvey three years ago has transformed into an annual volunteer event that continued last week in Mooresville. The third annual Bucket Brigade occurred July 17 at Lowe’s headquarters in southern Iredell County. More than 1,300 volunteers contributed time and energy throughout the day toward the assembly of 20,000 buckets filled with disaster relief supplies. To date, the Bucket Brigade has filled 55,000 buckets during its three years of volunteerism and catastrophe contributions.

Volunteers from corporate headquarters and the Statesville distribution center worked in teams to assemble the bucket donations. Each bucket contained various home improvement and cleaning supplies – trash bags, cleaning wipes, safety glasses, insect repellant, sponges, dish soap and more. All items, including the buckets and lids, were donated by Lowe’s partners.

The completed buckets will go into storage in Statesville, ready for delivery nationwide during times of immense need. Previous years’ buckets aided in relief efforts during Hurricane Florence, which destroyed parts of the North Carolina coast in 2018 and California wild fires.

Walmart announces executive shuffle to further integrate stores and digital
Walmart is making further organizational changes to further integrate its store and digital operations and leadership, according to a memo obtained by CNBC. The changes bring the U.S. supply chain teams together, led by Greg Smith, current executive vice president of Walmart U.S. supply chain. Smith will jointly report to Greg Foran, who runs Walmart’s U.S. stores, and Marc Lore, who runs Walmart’s U.S. e-commerce business.

Domino’s says Americans With Disabilities Act shouldn’t apply online
Domino’s, backed by the nation’s largest retailers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is making its case before the Supreme Court that protections granted consumers under the Americans With Disabilities Act should not apply equally to online operations. The chain is arguing that the ADA passed in 1990 did not even consider websites in its language and mobile apps didn’t even exist.

"Roughly half (48.5 percent) of survey respondents said ORC gangs are exhibiting more aggression than they did the previous year," according to the National Retail Federation.  

Those aggressive tactics were on display in Kenosha County recently when what police characterized as "a flash mob" of 10 men rushed into the North Face store at Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets July 1, grabbing armfuls of coats and jackets - an estimated $30,000 in merchandise - before running from the store and fleeing in waiting cars. The theft took less than 30 seconds.

Equifax to Pay at Least $650 Million in Largest Data-Breach Settlement Ever
Credit-reporting firm's 2017 hack exposed personal data of 150 million Americans

The credit bureau Equifax will pay at least $650 million and potentially significantly more to end an array of state, federal and consumer claims over a 2017 data breach that exposed the sensitive information of more than 148 million people. The breach was one of the most potentially damaging in an ever-growing list of digital thefts.

The settlement, which was announced on Monday and still needs court approval, would be the largest ever paid by a company over a data breach. The deal requires Equifax to put a minimum of $380.5 million into a restitution fund for American consumers who file claims showing that they were financially harmed.

A portion of that money will pay for lawyers’ fees, but at least $300 million must go to victims, according to settlement documents filed in federal court in Atlanta. If the initial cash is depleted, the company will add up to $125 million more to settle consumers’ claims, bringing the total fund size to more than $500 million.

Equifax also agreed to provide up to 10 years of free credit monitoring services to those who had their data exposed. The settlement assumes that around 7 million people will sign up for that service. If more do, Equifax’s costs for providing it could rise meaningfully. Details about the settlement are posted at, a website set up by the group that will handle claims.

Equifax will pay an additional $175 million in fines to end investigations by 50 attorneys general. Forty-eight states — all except Indiana and Massachusetts, which separately filed their own lawsuits against Equifax — are part of the deal, along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

New Report Shows Digital Criminals Made Off With $45 Billion in 2018
A new report on cyber attack trends that combines information from a number of high-level sources has just been released, and it reveals a startling amount of cyber crime growth. The report from the Internet Society’s Online Trust Alliance (OTA) reveals that although overall incidents of cyber crime are actually down across the board, the financial impact is way up. The $45 billion stolen in 2018 alone accounts for over a third of the entire cyber crime take since 2013.

What the cyber attack trends report tells us

The report highlights both positive and negative impacts in 2018. Many of the most common types of attacks – ransomware, data breaches, and DDoS – were actually down in terms of overall count in 2018. But the financial damage done by many attack types was up significantly. Ransomware losses rose by 60% in spite of the downturn in overall incidents, business email compromise losses rose by a staggering 200%, and there were three times as many cryptojacking incidents.

One thing that all of this data on cyber attack trends suggests is that criminals are shifting from large-scale, indiscriminate attempts on lots of individuals to more focused attacks directed specifically at businesses that have significant resources.

Business owners prioritize investment in technology over upskilling
Business owners say their strategy is to prioritize investing in technology (52%) over upskilling (24%) their workforce, according to Adecco. The research titled, People, Technology and the Future of Upskilling, which surveyed 500 managers, directors, and business owners at SMEs, found that this focus on investing in technology over upskilling is not necessarily shared across all roles in the business.

Just 28% of middle managers and 33% of directors prioritize investment in technology over upskilling. This is compared to 34% and 45% respectively who say their focus is on investing in upskilling its workforce over technology.

The majority of businesses (94%) recognize that technology is transforming the skills their company needs over the next three years. It was revealed that middle managers (43%) are more likely than business owners (35%) to think that technology will require increased training and development for the workforce.

Worryingly, 43% of businesses admit that they’re unable to provide relevant training due to budget restrictions.

Mirai Malware Groups Target Business IoT Devices
More than 30% of Mirai attacks, and an increasing number of variants of the malicious malware, are going after enterprise IoT devices, raising the stakes for business. The groups behind Mirai and variants of the Internet of Things (IoT) device infector are increasingly targeting businesses, with nearly one-third of attacks in recent months focusing on devices commonly used inside companies, IBM's X-Force security research group says.

"If your organization is using IoT devices, or if you're unsure of its use of IoT devices, you should be concerned," says Charles DeBeck, senior cyberthreat intelligence analyst at IBM. "Threat actors are actively targeting this space and developing malware for it, which indicates not only a capability to target IoT, but also that targeting it would be profitable. This means IoT malware isn't going away anytime soon."

Jeff Bezos celebrates the biggest Prime Day in Amazon history by standing on top of the company's massive glass spheres
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos apparently celebrated the close of Prime Day on Tuesday by standing on top of the Amazon spheres, a group of three giant glass-enclosed structures at the company's headquarters in Seattle.

The billionaire founder of Amazon posted a photo of himself to Instagram on Tuesday wearing climbing ropes and an Amazon-branded hard hat at the top of one of the three spheres, which stand up to 95 feet high. He held a sign over his head that read: "THANK YOU."

"I love my job and tap dance into work every day, but not usually on top of The Spheres," Bezos wrote in a caption accompanying the photo. "Huge thank you to Prime members everywhere and to the incredible Amazonians who made Prime Day work."

Amazon said it sold more than 175 million items over the 48-hour event, which started Monday. Last year, the event lasted 36 hours, during which Amazon sold about 100 million items.

E-commerce platforms used for domain spoofing against Best Buy
Taking down obviously malicious domains can be an arduous process, even when those sites are spoofing one of the most well-known brands in America.

Two domains that spoofed retailer Best Buy remain online, despite repeated attempts to report the sites to their e-commerce hosting providers. The domain spoofing was first discovered by researchers at Segasec, an Israeli cybersecurity startup that tracked the emergence of phishing sites and malicious domains prior to busy U.S. shopping periods around Mother's Day and Memorial Day.

Segasec said it found 160 new domains related to three brands -- Walmart, Wayfair and Best Buy -- that its researchers deemed "highly suspicious." The company provided sample data to SearchSecurity, which include eight suspicious domains and details about their registrars, hosts, certificates and more.

Segasec said its research showed how easy it is for threat actors to capitalize on high-volume shopping periods through domain spoofing. But these sites also show how phishers and scammers use many enterprise services that help disguise the sites as legitimate destinations instead of fraudulent domains -- and how difficult it can be to get those domains taken down.

Credit Card Fraud

Sacramento, CA: FBI Fugitive Arrested in Large-Scale Credit Card Fraud Scheme
A fugitive from Sacramento was arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Virginia Thursday morning for his alleged ties to a large-scale credit card scheme. On Aug. 27, 2015, Aleksandr Maslov was charged with 24 counts of wire fraud and two counts of mail fraud. A California federal grand jury returned a three-count superseding indictment for Maslov’s alleged involvement in the scheme on Jan. 21, 2016. Maslov was to go on trial for the two cases in October 2018 but never appeared for his trial confirmation hearing. In January 2019, an arrest warrant was issued and Maslov was charged for failing to appear in court. An FBI and U.S. Secret Service investigation revealed that along with another Sacramento man and a man from Southern California, Maslov had allegedly defrauded over 119,000 credit card account holders.

A 2015 FBI release on the case says “the defendants participated in a scheme to obtain money from credit card holders, credit card companies, and third-party credit card payment processors by charging individuals’ credit cards without their permission or knowledge for goods and services that were not provided.” The two-and-a-half-year scheme involved the use of 70 fake businesses, such as “Best Box,” “Chevran” and “Walt Mart,” along with fake internet domain names and emails.

It only takes seven seconds to make a first impression. With a job on the line, the pressure to immediately impress is even more intense. No wonder everyone can get frustrated.

The good news is that no matter what goes wrong -- you go to the wrong building, you spill water, you mispronounce the company name -- it's all about how you recover. The first rule is -- relax, take a deep breath and make a joke about it. Humility, honesty and calming down is the key to showing the employer that even when you're under pressure, you'll react the right way. Think about this before your interview because if something does happen you won't have time to think.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
