Politicians upset after Amazon's face-recog AI fingers dozens of them as
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,”
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

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

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
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,"

Secret Papa John's 'Coup'?
John Schnatter sues Papa John's for access to company records
Calls racial slur allegation 'false and mistaken reporting'
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.

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
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.

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.

Houston, TX: Officer shoots robbery suspect who
terrorized Family Dollar worker and mom with her 3 boys
police were in the right place at the right time when they say they spotted two
suspected robbers preparing for their alleged crime before they even committed
it. One of the suspects was shot by police outside a Family Dollar store during
a robbery in northeast Houston Thursday night. Two officers were on routine
patrol near the store on Hirsch Road near Tidwell around 9 p.m. when they saw
the men putting on masks and arming themselves before running inside the store.
The officers say they parked in front of the store and saw one of the men
holding the manager at gunpoint. Meanwhile, the officers called for back up. The
suspects allegedly tried to get the manager to open the safe, but it was on a
timer, so it wouldn't open. A mother and her three boys were also inside the
store shopping at the time. The two suspects ran outside to get away. One robber
ran out of the front of the store. Authorities say they ordered him to show his
hands, but he didn't listen and started running toward them instead. That's when
police shot him. The second suspect ran out of the back of the store. He
surrendered when he saw a police dog.

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

Tip of the Day
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.
