Update: Politicians upset after Amazon's face-recog AI fingers dozens of them as suspected crooks
Amazon’s online facial recognition system incorrectly matched pictures of US Congress members to mugshots of suspected criminals in a study by the American Civil Liberties Union.

As a result, the ACLU, a nonprofit headquartered in New York, has called for Congress to ban cops and Feds from using any sort of computer-powered facial recognition technology due to the fact that, well, it sucks.

The results from the ACLU's latest probing showed that Rekognition mistook images of 28 innocent members of Congress for mugshots of cuffed people suspected of crimes. The incorrect matches were skewed towards people of color and, including six members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Specifically, nearly 40 per cent of the wrong matches were of people of color despite them making up 20 per cent of Congress.

The ACLU has called Congress to “enact a moratorium” to prohibit law enforcement from using the technology. “I think Congress is taking this issue seriously,” said Snow.

He told us that Jimmy Gomez and John Lewis, both Democratic House representatives in California and Georgia respectively, have sent a letter to Amazon demanding a meeting to discuss Rekognition. Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) has also written a letter to ask for a formal meeting to learn more about how Rekognition really works.

A spokesperson from Amazon Web Services said in a statement the test results could have been improved by increasing the confidence threshold. While 80 percent is an acceptable threshold for photos of everyday items and objects, it's not appropriate for identifying individuals with a "reasonable level of certainty."

US Intel Community: Supply Chain Cyberattack Imminent
U.S. intelligence experts are warning of the risks of major cyberattacks on the technology operating throughout businesses’ supply chains, according to BBC reports Thursday (July 26), raising alarms for enterprises that increasingly rely on software to function and interact with their business partners.

A report by the U.S. National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), titled “The Foreign Economic Espionage Report,” warns that cyber attackers could infiltrate the software supply chain, and pointed to China, Russia and Iran as the most capable of such an event. Indeed, cyberattacks have already “threatened critical infrastructure,” the BBC reported. The NCSC described last year as a “watershed” with seven significant cyberattacks on the software supply chain — there were only four such events between 2014 and 2016, analysts noted.

“Software supply chain infiltration is one of the key threats that corporations need to pay attention to, particularly how software vulnerabilities are exploited,” said NCSC Director William Evanina, who is also the nation’s top counterintelligence official. “To get around increasingly hardened corporate perimeters, cyber-actors are targeting supply chains. The impacts to proprietary data, trade secrets and national security are profound.”

The report pointed to several events that have already occurred, including a version of computer cleaning program CCleaner. Reports emerged last September that a “booby-trapped” version of the solution was spreading, allowing attackers to take advantage of access gained by the program. In another scenario, analysts pointed to the NotPetya attack, in which attackers used accounting and tax software to target Ukraine.

Unsurprisingly, the report also mentioned Kaspersky Lab and the risks of foreign enterprise technology companies that work closely with corporates and governments in the U.S.

The End of 'De Minimis' Rule in CA
Calif. High Court: Starbucks Must Pay Workers to Close Store

More Security Procedures May Require Compensation
The California Supreme Court ruled that Starbucks and other employers must pay workers for routine off-the-clock activities, such as setting the alarm and closing the store at the end of the day—even if the amount of time is minimal.

Under the federal "de minimis" rule, businesses can require employees to work a trivial amount of time (up to 10 minutes) each day without compensation if the time is administratively difficult to track. But this is not necessarily the case in California.

In a ­­unanimous opinion on July 26, the state high court said that the de minimis rule has not been adopted under California wage and hour statutes and regulations. And, at least in the case before the court, the rule doesn't otherwise apply under state law.

"We hold that the relevant wage order and statutes do not permit application of the de minimis rule on the facts given to us … where the employer required the employee to work 'off the clock' several minutes per shift," wrote Justice Goodwin Liu for the court.

Employers in California need to be prepared for the end of the de minimis rule as a defense to wage and hour class actions, said Grant Alexander, an attorney with Alston & Bird in Los Angeles. Employers will need to determine how to compensate employees for the time that has previously been treated as off-the-clock work, either by adjusting shifts to avoid such work or by identifying and compensating those individuals who routinely open and close retail locations, he added.

Employers should conduct an analysis of what workers are actually doing at the start and end of their shifts, said Bryan Lazarski, an attorney with Lazarski Law in Los Angeles. He said employers should look for patterns. Is the work capturable? Perhaps employees have to start their computers each morning before logging in. If that activity regularly takes up to five minutes, employers may want to add five minutes to workers' timesheets each day.

"Employers also need to update their handbooks and make sure that they say in as many places as possible that no off-the-clock work is permissible," Wagner added.

Secret Papa John's 'Coup'?
John Schnatter sues Papa John's for access to company records
Calls racial slur allegation 'false and mistaken reporting'
The founder of the Papa John's pizza chain filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking access to the company's books and records following his resignation as chairman earlier this month amid reports that he used a racial slur during a media training session.

In a complaint filed in Delaware's Court of Chancery, John Schnatter accused Papa John's International Inc. of treating him in an "unexplained and heavy-handed way" after Forbes published a July 11 article that he says falsely accused him.

In the complaint, Schnatter says company directors either acted in a hasty and uninformed manner, thus breaching their duty of care to the corporation, or had secretly planned a "coup" in advance to oust him.

CA Prop 47 Impact
Shoplifting sprees around Bakersfield, CA. are happening in broad daylight

From jewelry store heists to pilfering at a Panama Lane gas station, thieves are targeting Bakersfield businesses small and large, often in broad daylight.

The consequences are less severe these days for shoplifting, which may be a factor as to why thieves are so brazen. Two years ago, Proposition 47 changed store theft from a felony to a mere misdemeanor, if the losses were less than $950.

St Louis, MO: Protests, vandalism at BP station following viral video of employees attacking woman outside store
Calling for a BP store shutdown, protesters marched outside a West St. Louis gas station again on Thursday. The protests stemmed from a video showing a woman being kicked at the gas station. Two men, Ahmed Qandeel, 19, and Jehad Motan, 32, were charged with assault. Both were taken into custody shortly after the incident was recorded by a bystander. Around 11 p.m. Wednesday, vandals reportedly ransacked the store and set a nearby car on fire. No injuries were reported and no arrests were made.

Kelli Adams said it all started when she gave another customer $20 to go inside the gas station to buy lottery tickets. She said the employees turned the customer away. Adams said she wanted to go inside the BP to find out why the customer was turned away but she was stopped just inside the door. “I kind of lashed out and pushed the bread over, which was wrong,” Adams said. As she walked away, Adams said she was attacked. “He shoves the trash can, drop kicks me, body kicks me and everything,” she said. Soon after the struggle began, a customer outside started recording. “That’s when the bigger guy came out to drop kick me and caused me to fall to the ground and flip over,” said Adams. Adams believes she was kicked six times by two employees.

What Employee Speech Is Protected in the Workplace?
Employees don't have a constitutional right to free speech at work, but employers still need to be aware of federal and state laws that do protect workers' speech in certain situations.

But that doesn't mean that businesses can curb all employee speech. For instance, private-sector employees have the right to engage in concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). This applies to workers in both union and nonunion settings.

Employees also have the right to talk about possible unlawful conduct in the workplace. Under various federal laws, employees may complain about harassment, discrimination, workplace safety violations and other issues. "However, employees don't have the freedom or right to express racist, sexist or other discriminatory comments where such comments constitute violations of these laws," Olmsted noted.

Social Media

Employers should be mindful of how social media and policies affecting the use of social media interact with employee rights, Alexander said. In certain states, employees have the right to engage in lawful conduct when they are off the clock, and that may impact how social media policies are crafted and implemented, he added.

An employee's posts on social media platforms might be considered protected concerted activity if the employee is discussing working conditions and other labor relations matters. In recent years, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and courts have found that social media posts might be protected even if they contain profanities or sound disloyal to the business.

(GDPR) marks a new era in data privacy and protection — and retailers are in the hot seat to comply
Companies that improperly handle data will have consequences, such as legal actions and fines of up to 4% of their worldwide annual turnover, according to Russell Marsh, managing director, Accenture Digital.

What do companies need to be aware of to become complaint?
Retailers need to know where all customer data has come from, show how all data was processed, and where automated processing (algorithms) were applied. They also must be able to prove they have the customer’s consent to use each piece of their data for each specific purpose. If they don’t have this consent, they need to stop using a specific piece of their data for a specific profiling purpose.

How will GDPR impact U.S.-based companies that operate globally?
GDPR provides protection to European citizens no matter where their data travels. This means that any company, anywhere, that has a database that includes EU citizens is bound by its rules. Businesses of all sizes are affected — no one is exempt.

The Double-Edged Sword of Artificial Intelligence in Security
The advancements in AI and its ability to make automated decisions about cyber threats is revolutionizing the cybersecurity landscape as we know it, from both a defensive and an offensive perspective.

AI in Cyber Defense
As a subdivision of AI, machine learning is already easing the burden of threat detection for many cyber defense teams. Its ability to analyze network traffic and establish a baseline for normal activity within a system can be used to flag suspicious activity, drawing from vast amounts of security data collected by businesses. Anomalies are then fed back to security teams, which make the final decision on how to react. 

AI and Cybercriminals
Even though implementing machine learning technologies is an asset for defense teams, hackers are armed with the very same ammunition and capabilities, creating a seemingly never-ending arms race.

At the beginning of 2018, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's "The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence" report warned that AI can be exploited by hackers for malicious purposes, including the ability to target entire states and alter society as we know it. The authors of the report contend that globally we are at "a critical moment in the co-evolution of AI and cybersecurity and should proactively prepare for the next wave of attacks."

Guarding Against the "Weaponization" of AI
To protect against AI-launched attacks, security teams should be mindful of three key steps to cement a strong defense:

Step 1: Understand what AI is protecting.

Step 2: Have clearly defined processes in place.

Step 3: Know exactly what is normal for the security environment.

Facebook Chief Security Officer's Leaked Internal Memo
Great Read - Take a Look Deep Inside Facebook's Culture - Struggling With Growth at Any Cost
Departing Facebook Security Officer's Memo: "We Need To Be Willing To Pick Sides"

In a brutally honest note about his departure, Facebook’s Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos calls on his colleagues “to intentionally not collect data where possible” and listen to people when they say a feature is “creepy.”

In March, days after confirming his plans to leave the company, Facebook’s highest-ranking security official implored his colleagues to take responsibility for the social network’s failings amid the fallout of the most notable privacy scandal in the company's 14-year history.

Advocating for dramatic shifts in Facebook’s culture, Alex Stamos, the company’s outgoing chief security officer, sent a reflective, brutally honest note to employees on March 23 attributing the social network’s problems to “tens of thousands of small decisions made over the last decade.” The memo, which has not previously been circulated outside Facebook, is a rare look at some of the internal debate currently taking place over the company’s future direction and the growth-at-any-cost attitude that has driven it for years.

“We need to build a user experience that conveys honesty and respect, not one optimized to get people to click yes to giving us more access,” Stamos wrote. “We need to intentionally not collect data where possible, and to keep it only as long as we are using it to serve people.”

“We need to listen to people (including internally) when they tell us a feature is creepy or point out a negative impact we are having in the world,” the note continued. “We need to deprioritize short-term growth and revenue and to explain to Wall Street why that is ok. We need to be willing to pick sides when there are clear moral or humanitarian issues. And we need to be open, honest and transparent about our challenges and what we are doing to fix them.”

The note, titled “A Difficult Week,” came six days after stories in the New York Times and the Observer revealed how political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica had obtained and exploited the data of millions of Facebook users for political advertising purposes. After those revelations, Stamos, who had reportedly previously clashed with other executives over Facebook’s handling of Russian state-sponsored misinformation and election interference on the platform, confirmed his plans to leave by August. According to the post, his departure had long been in the works following an internal reorganization that left him with fewer responsibilities, and it was not directly related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Facebook, which reports earnings tomorrow, declined to comment on Stamos's note. Stamos did not respond to requests for comment.

Amazon Q2 net sales up 39% Inc. turned the dial up on profit in Q2, booking $2.53 billion in net income in the quarter, up from $197 million in profit a year earlier. The profit sprang from a 39% increase in net sales, including 49% sales growth in AWS (Amazon’s computing business), 57% growth in subscription services revenue (Prime membership fees and content fees) and 39% growth in seller services revenue, which includes commissions paid on marketplace sales and Fulfillment By Amazon fees.

Amazon saw the least growth in revenue in selling physical goods online to consumers, at 14.4%. Revenue from Amazon’s online stores business in Q2 was $27.17 billion versus $23.75 billion a year earlier. Amazon’s online store revenue accounted for 51.4% of net sales versus 62.6% in Q2 2017.

San Antonio, TX: Woman accused of using a Booster Bag to steal at North Shore Mall
According to court papers, four women caught the attention of undercover police officers because they carried empty shopping bags as they walked into a store at North Star Mall on July 18. One of the officers noticed the empty bags were lined with material that can block the signal of an anti-theft device. As a result, the system won't set off an alarm as the items are stolen, explains the arrest affidavit. When a security guard noticed the women, they ran out of the mall and drove away. Court papers state they were followed by San Antonio police officers who later pulled them over and recovered the stolen merchandise inside the bags. One of the defendants, identified in court papers as Karena Renee Jones Brown, 31, is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity.

Henderson, NV: McDonald's employee body-slams woman who allegedly tried to steal soda
A McDonald’s employee and a customer were caught on camera in a brutal fight that allegedly started over a free soda. The fight, which was filmed by Nevada resident Marie Dayag, supposedly broke out when the customer asked for a water cup and then allegedly tried to fill it with soda. In the footage, the customer can be seen provoking the McDonald’s employee by yelling "fight me," and throwing a french fry before the fight happened. Eventually, the fast food worker leaves the counter and the customer throws a milkshake at her, before hitting her in the face with a tray. The staff member is seen grabbing the woman and punching her in the face numerous times before another employee tries to break them up — before also being pulled into the fight. *Warning - graphic video

Fort Worth Molotov Cocktail Thrower in Hulen Mall Sears & Dillard's Pleads Guilty in Fed Court
Craig Michael Tezeno, 46, of Fort Worth, Texas, pleaded guilty yesterday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey L. Cureton to one count of arson, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

According to court documents filed in the case, on May 11, 2018, Tezeno entered the Dillard’s Department store in the Hulen Mall in Fort Worth, Texas with a glass bottle filled with gasoline and a rag. This device is commonly known as a Molotov Cocktail. While in the store, Tezeno lit the rag and placed the Molotov Cocktail on the floor. Shortly thereafter, Tezeno entered the Sears Department store and lit a second Molotov Cocktail. Tezeno placed both of these devices in the stores hoping to start a fire and cause damage to the store and its property. 

On May 18, 2018, Tezeno returned to the Hulen Mall in Fort Worth, Texas and re-entered the Sears store. While in the store, Tezeno lit a third Molotov Cocktail and placed it on the floor.

Tezeno faces up to twenty years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine, and will remain in custody pending sentencing.

Tip of the Day
ed by Vector Security Networks

Loyalty is one of the most precious values there is and a loyal team that's unified in its goals and objectives, even in defeat, is strong and supportive. Loyal teams can make the largest tasks seem effortless and they create a sense of ownership of family that inspires individual performance and comforts individual failure. Earned slowly and grown daily, loyalty is a commodity no leader can be without because it fuels success, unifies purpose, and gives birth to exceptional performance. Without loyalty, teams splinter and lose focus on the true objectives. It's rare to build a truly loyal team and it's incredibly difficult to keep them together long term with private agendas always pressuring the balance. And yes, even loyal teams require balancing because at the end of the day it's always about personal agendas. Professional sports teams are constantly looking for that balance and the right players to fit as a team and the same holds true in business. With the right team, anything is possible and conversely one team member can destroy the entire balance. So being a team player is important even when you decide not to be.

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
