The fourth quarter push filled those jobs. Let's see who lands in those seats shortly.

Our Mid-Year & Q2 Senior Jobs Report will be published this week.

54% of All Mass Shootings (4 or More Killed) Connected to Domestic Violence
An analysis of shootings with four or more victims from 2009 to 2017, Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization that works to reduce gun violence, chronicled a connection in domestic violence: In at least 54 percent of shootings in which four or more people were killed, the perpetrator also shot a current or former intimate partner or family member.

Research has shown that women killed by their partners are more likely to be murdered with a firearm than by all other means combined, and the presence of a gun in domestic violence situations can increase the risk of homicide for women by as much as 500 percent, according to the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

Hong Kong: Apple & Other Retailers Shutter Stores Early as Protests Against Chinese Government, Crackdowns Escalate
Amid mounting unrest and a night of violence in Hong Kong, Apple is among the retailers that have chosen to shut stores or close them early citywide, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

Demonstrators have taken to the streets for seven straight weeks there in protest of a (now-suspended) Hong Kong government bill to allow extradition to the mainland, where suspects would be all but certain to receive harsh punishments under the authoritarian Chinese government’s infamously unfair judicial system.

The protests had largely been peaceful, but on Sunday night devolved into chaos as baton-armed thugs (believed to be triad gangsters targeting demonstrators) attacked people at a metro station and riot police fired tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters. There is considerable concern that the mainland Chinese government either will capitalize on the events as a pretext for sweeping suppression of the protests, or actually orchestrated them.

Apple shut down five of its six Apple stores on Monday at 4:00 p.m. local time, according to the Journal, some five to six hours early, and closed the sixth entirely. The paper writes that the tech giant is far from the only retailer anxious about potential violence.

At a branch of
Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s Hollister - next to an Apple store in the shopping belt of Causeway Bay - a Hollister employee said some staff were allowed to leave early to get home to Yuen Long, a suburb close to the border with mainland China, where the attack at the subway station happened Sunday night.

Estée Lauder Co. at 2:40 p.m. Monday sent a notice to Hong Kong employees, asking those who live in Yuen Long and Tuen Mun, another suburb, to “leave the office as soon as possible,” according to an internal email reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

UK: New security measures see drop in crime at Central England Co-ops
Bucking national trend - where robberies are up 508% - burglaries up 137%

New measures aimed at reducing crime at Central England Co-operative stores have seen
burglaries drop by 6% and robberies drop by 30%, says the retailer.

A ram raid at one of the co-op’s stores in Scraptoft, Leicestershire, recently hit the headlines but overall crime figures are down,
bucking a national trend. This trend has seen burglaries increase by 137% and robberies by 508%, according to the co-op. Both crimes are theft, but robbery involves threatening or forcing another person to give up something.

Central England Co-operative released the crime figures one year after rolling out new measures to help prevent incidents and protect colleagues, members and customers. In 2018, stores were fitted with external motion detectors – and a centrally monitored CCTV system was installed, which allows colleagues to call for assistance at the touch of a button.

The new measures sit alongside a range of others such as product GPS trackers, gas suppression systems and stringent cash controls, all of which are designed to keep customers and colleagues safe, as well as actively promoting the fact that targeting convenience supermarkets is not ‘worth the risk’.

South Africa: Shoprite has created its own Private Security Force – after being robbed nearly 500 times last year
The Shoprite Group is investing heavily in security as it aims to address the number of criminal incidents impacting its stores. The company said that the South African retail industry has been hit by a number of significant crime incidents, with the Shoprite Group having to contend with
489 armed robberies and burglaries in its 2018 financial year alone.

The Shoprite Group includes 2,006 stores in South Africa including 471 Shoprite branded stores, 335 USave stores, 213 Checkers stores, and 37 Checkers Hyper stores. Shoprite Group is the largest private sector employer in South Africa, with in excess of 125,000 people.

The new investments in crime prevention include a centralized command centre and anti-crime team – giving the group the ability to monitor stores and vehicles, remotely trigger security devices, follow up on crime incidents and ensure suspects are arrested.

Cleveland, OH: City lawmakers consider moratorium on new dollar store locations over concerns of crime and safety issues
A measure that would put any new dollar stores locations in Cleveland on-hold is now being considered by the Cleveland law department and the city administration. The proposed legislation drafted by Cleveland Councilman Blaine Griffin would place a moratorium on allowing any new dollars store to open in the city until company leaders come up with a better safety and service plan for the neighborhoods they serve, or would serve in the future.

Griffin told News 5
the legislation is gaining national attention, since crime and safety issues are hitting dollar store across the country. “They have frequent robberies, they often times have employees that have walked out,” Griffin said.

Leaders from the "big three" dollar stores are starting to respond. "The Dollar General, the Family Dollar, the Dollar Tree, a lot of these folks have asked to meet with city council,” Griffin said.

Documents Reveal Huawei’s Secret Operations
Building North Korea’s wireless network

Huawei Technologies Co., the Chinese tech giant embroiled in President Trump’s trade war with China and blacklisted as a national security threat, secretly helped the North Korean government build and maintain the country’s commercial wireless network, according to internal documents obtained by The Washington Post and people familiar with the arrangement.

PayCargo Accuses Competitor Of Stealing Trade Secrets
PayCargo, the creator of a
web-based payment and settlement platform for the shipping industry, has alleged in Georgia federal court that a rival attempted to steal PayCargo's trade secrets and monopolize the payment sector. CargoSprint LLC allegedly used its status as a customer of PayCargo LLC to steal confidential information and trade secrets in an attempt to peel off PayCargo’s customers for its own payment processing business, according to Friday's complaint. CargoSprint also allegedly attempted to copy PayCargo’s software and payment system.

Microsoft paying $25M for multiple international bribery schemes
Microsoft is paying more than $25 million to settle federal corruption charges involving a bribery scheme in Hungary and other foreign offices. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said Microsoft will pay about $16.6 million to settle charges that it violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. While the case centered on Hungary, the SEC said it also found improprieties at Microsoft offices in Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Turkey. The Justice Department said Microsoft will also pay an $8.75 million criminal fine stemming from the Hungarian bid-rigging and bribery scheme.

Trump proposal would push 3 million Americans off food stamps
The U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed new rules Tuesday to limit access to food stamps for households with savings and other assets, a measure that officials said would cut benefits to about 3 million people.

In a telephone call with reporters, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Acting Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps said the proposed new rules for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) were aimed at ending automatic eligibility for those who were already receiving federal and state assistance. “This proposal will save money and preserve the integrity of the program,” Perdue said. “SNAP should be a temporary safety net.”

Delivery companies accused of cheating drivers of tips
DoorDash and other delivery services for restaurants and retailers incorporate tips into workers pay, effectively adding to its revenues while taking compensation away from drivers. Food delivery workers have no guaranteed minimum wage and do not have access to worker’s compensation if injured, according to a recent New York Times report.

McD’s CEO makes an hour what the average worker makes a year
McDonald's Corp. has been among the American companies that pay its workers the least. As some evidence of the ongoing pay problem at the fast-food chain, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has released the compensation of McDonald's CEO Stephen Easterbrook. He was paid $15.9 million in 2018. That is 2,124 times the median employee salary of $7,473. It means that Easterbrook, who has been CEO since 2015, earns in an hour what it takes a median employee to make in a year, according to data from public company intelligence firm MyLogIQ.
GNC on Monday announced plans to close 700-900 stores
Most of the closures will be in malls, he also said, noting that at strip centers, where 61% of its U.S. footprint is found, stores "are relatively stable from a comparable sales perspective." More than a quarter (28%) are in malls, he said.

Three pawn shop owners charged with reselling over $1M of stolen items on eBay

The owners of pawn shops in Manchester and Concord are accused of being the ringleaders of organized retail crime rings that prosecutors said reaped more than $1 million in profits by selling stolen items on eBay. “It is the most expansive retail organized crime enterprise I’ve ever seen,” prosecutor Patrick Ives told Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge Amy Messer on Thursday. Ives said Kyle Perkins, 27, and his domestic partner, Shaira Clarissa, 34, both of Concord, used their pawnshops to solicit stolen merchandise and then sell items on eBay with an account created in their child’s name.

Spotlight on siffron

As a savvy LP professional, you probably already have best practices in place. But did you know that there are other security solutions you can leverage?

To help you explore additional options, we want to share an informative whitepaper, “Three Essential Trends in Loss Prevention.” This piece highlights advanced security measures that can reduce or eliminate the significant causes of shrink.




CISO Pressures: Why the Role Stinks and How to Fix It
Look around the boardroom. The average tenure of a CEO is 8.4 years. A CFO will spend approximately 6.2 years in the position, while a COO lasts 5.5 years. In stark contrast, a CISO will spend an average of 1.5 to 2 years before leaving behind the constant stress and urgency of the job.

There's a serious problem in the cybersecurity industry, and all too often, it's ignored because it's uncomfortable to address. Now is the time to acknowledge the issue and understand the true challenges and repercussions of the modern-day CISO role.

When CISOs come to work, there's a growing list of issues to face. Perhaps the most ominous is the constant cyberattacks threatening organizations of all sizes and spanning all industries

Add to these challenges the accelerated rate of evolving business technology. With most organizations laser focused on digital transformation efforts, the constantly shifting legal and regulatory environment consisting of legislation such as GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act, and the fact that everyone thinks they're an expert at the job, you have a recipe for a burned-out CISO with no finish line to the job's responsibilities in sight.

Cybercrime gang adds new tactics to credit card data-stealing campaign
FIN8 is Back - With a New Toolset

The FIN8 cybercrime group was first identified in January 2016, and typically targets point-of-sale (POS) systems with malware attacks designed to steal credit card information, which is then sold on for profit on dark web underground forums. The nature of the attacks means retailers and the hospitality sector are common targets.

FIN8 appeared to disappear for two years before re-emerging in June. The group seems to have started where it left off, continuing to evolve and adapt malicious tools to improve the success of its campaigns. Hundreds of organizations are thought to have fallen victim to FIN8 campaigns since the group first emerged.

The latest evolution of FIN8's attacks has been detailed by cybersecurity researchers at Gigamon. The security company has uncovered Badhatch -- a previously-unreported form of malware used as part of the financial hacking group's latest campaign.

Badhatch is deployed to stealthily explore victim networks, as well as distributing additional malware like PoSlurp, a credit card information-scraper which steals details of cards swiped through POS systems.

Identity management continues to challenge businesses
As 36% prioritize biometric MFA

Identity management poses at least one challenge to 92 percent of organizations, according to a survey from LastPass by LogMeIn, and 36 percent say implementing biometric multifactor authentication is a priority.

In a survey of 700 IT professionals at organizations ranging from 250 to 2,999 employees conducted by Vanson Bourne, 47 percent said balancing ease of use with security is the biggest challenge in identity and access management. Password problems take four hours of work each week to resolve, on average, with organizations receiving 96 password-related requests per month, and 82 percent say poor identity practices expose their business to risk.

The Guide to Modern Identity” report also shows 80 percent of IT professionals believe SSO is not enough to secure businesses on its own, and 59 percent agree that strengthening user authentication with MFA is critical.

DHS CISA - National Cyber Awareness System:
5G Wireless Network Risk Factors

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released an infographic on 5G wireless network risk factors. Although 5G technology will bring capacity, reliability, and security improvements, it may also introduce supply chain, deployment, network security, and competition and choice vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may affect the security and resilience of 5G networks.

CISA encourages users and administrators to review the CISA 5G infographic to better understand the risks associated with 5G wireless networks.

Europol Head Fears 5G Will Give Criminals an Edge
Here We Go Again - Techies Not Even Thinking Crime Impact
The evolution of 5G networks is causing concern for Catherine De Bolle, head of Europol, who argues that law enforcement will lose the ability to surveil criminals when 4G networks become obsolete. EU member states lack both regulations and technology to keep up, she says. The ability to monitor criminals "is one of the most important investigative tools that police officers and services have, so we need this in the future."

European law enforcement officials can currently monitor and listen to criminals using mobile 4G devices, but their tools cannot be used on the 5G network, De Bolle said in an interview with Reuters. In her opinion, European law enforcement agencies should have been involved in discussions with tech firms and policymakers earlier in the transition to 5G. Now, police agencies are researching ways to minimize damage when they lack the ability to do their jobs as usual.

LPRC Research Update

Stuart Strome, PhD, Former Research Scientist, Loss Prevention Research Council

The Loss Prevention Research Council continues to work on ways to help retailers sell more while losing less using in-store and supply chain innovation efforts, interviewing offenders, shoppers and employees, while analyzing large data sets and conducting randomized controlled trials in active locations.

A major LPRC research focus is better understanding the psychology of how LP/AP efforts actually affect human behavior in stores and distribution centers. They look at how and where LP should place deterrent treatments to make the most positive impact with the least negative shopper and employee effects.

In this 22-minute episode, Dr. Stuart Strome formerly of the LPRC explains why the offender interviews they conduct are so crucial to their research, what data they collect when studying solutions, and how they help facilitate research collaboration among retailers.

Consumer Behavior Fuels Fraud And Retailers Need To Fight Back
E-Commerce buyers have developed a disconnect between their expectations and their responsibilities as consumers. As a result, they often engage in unsafe behavior online, enabling fraudsters to carry out phishing attacks and other forms of fraud.

On the one hand, consumers are acutely aware of the risk online fraud represents. However, misunderstandings about the realities of online fraud, plus a lack of adherence to security best practices, means buyers are still vulnerable.

We have a situation in which consumers feel entitled to a frictionless experience. Simultaneously, they’re very aware of online fraud, but don’t know how to protect themselves from it.

We’re training customer expectations by reinforcing negative behaviors and fostering a culture in which consumers don’t understand the impact of their actions. Simultaneously, customers expect to be entitled to a chargeback. This is a recipe for disaster...and merchants are the ones who end up paying the price.

Friendly fraud is directly tied to our problem with consumer entitlement. Buyers are trained to expect that a chargeback will always be an option to recover money. This gives them the impression that they have no real responsibility to merchants, banks or other consumers. It’s a kind of feedback loop, which explains the rapid growth of friendly fraud in the last decade.

The longer we allow consumers to take a lax attitude towards phishing and other online threats, while simply expecting to recover their money at a whim, the worse the situation will get. That’s why merchants need to take the lead.

Amazon Changing Rules For Third-Party Sellers Worldwide, Germany Drops Probe
Germany agreed to drop a seven-month investigation into Amazon's merchant terms and conditions after the marketplace said it would amend its Business Services Agreement. The company plans to make the changes worldwide. The new terms will take effect in August. This means Amazon will comply with Europe's liability toward business partners on its European platforms, giving merchants 30-day notice and an explanation before removing a seller from the platform.

Prime Day boosted store traffic for Amazon and rivals alike
Along with Prime Day's status as a massive online sales event, this year Amazon's self-proclaimed holiday also drove store visits to Amazon's Whole Foods as well as to physical stores of the company's competitors.

According to foot traffic analytics firm, visits to Whole Foods stores on Saturday, July 13, were 20.3% above the baseline for 2019 and up 26.8% on July 14, while the Monday of Prime Day had the fourth-most weekday visits of the year so far.

Meanwhile, in-store traffic at Walmart was up 25.7% above its baseline on Friday, July 12, up 37.5% on July 13, and up 26.1% on July 14. At Target, traffic was up Monday (3%), Tuesday (4.4%) and Wednesday (4.9%) of Prime Week as well. Finally, Best Buy's traffic spiked 6.5% over its baseline that Monday and 4.6% on Tuesday.

Prime Day drives retailers to significantly boost their Amazon advertising spending
Not only did Inc.’s two-day Prime Day sales event drive an Internet Retailer-estimated $7.16 billion in online sales for Amazon—a 71% jump compared with the previous year’s event—it also led retailers that sell on the retail giant’s online marketplace to significantly increase their spending on ads that appear on Amazon. And, based on data from multiple vendors that help facilitate those ad buys, that money was well spent.

Networking has always been a key to career development and finding that next job. However, if you're not careful it can also limit you, eliminate you and even work against you. If your network is comprised of executives doing exactly what you do, then you may have competition and may even find some working against you. You've got to broaden and expand your network outside your immediate group and establish relationships outside your company and your professional circle. Remembering that quantity is no substitute for quality and, as in any mutually beneficial relationship, what you bring to the table for them is as important as what they bring to the table for you.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
