Harris County, TX Monitored Alarm Users to Experience Faster, More Accurate Police Dispatch with Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP)
Harris County, Texas is the latest Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to implement Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP), technology that automates communication from alarm monitoring central stations to PSAPs and 911 centers, resulting in faster, more accurate emergency response for users of monitored alarms. With ASAP, monitored alarm users in the county will experience faster, more accurate police dispatch in the event of an emergency.

ASAP was developed in partnership between The Monitoring Association (TMA) and the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO), with Vector Security President and CEO Pam Petrow co-chairing the committee. Vector Security was the first alarm company to debut ASAP in Richmond, VA in 2012. vectorsecurity.com

DETEX: Quietly Providing Resources Needed to Turn Lives Around
and Reduce the Cost of Repeat Offenses

One of the first actions of the recently launched National Shoplifting Prevention Coalition (NSPC) - launched just 6 months before we learned of the coronavirus threat - was to establish an Education Support Fund. Its aim is to ensure that both offenders and communities in need can have access to the education necessary to prevent repeat shoplifting offenses - a critical factor in reducing the cost of repeat offenders' retailers bottom line.

Detex Corporation - as one of the founding service providers in the NSPC, is leading the way. A generous grant from Detex in support of offender education, has allowed NASP to answer the call for assistance from its criminal justice clients and provide education to many of the most vulnerable offenders including an at-risk youth from New Jersey and a single mom from Texas.

Retailers Voices Speaking Up
CEO's Addressing Racism
Brands Responding

Target - Nordstrom - VF Corp - Levi Strauss Speak Out
'Retail Reaches Out on Race'

Amid the ongoing protests following George Floyd's death, retailers are openly addressing racism and supporting change.

The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officer last week pushed long-simmering frustration over racism beyond the boiling point, but retailers are finding common cause with the protesters stepping out to say enough is enough.

"'We are a community in pain,"' said Brian Cornell, chairman and chief executive officer of the Minneapolis-based Target Corp. "'That pain is not unique to the Twin Cities - it extends across America. The murder of George Floyd has unleashed the pent-up pain of years, as have the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. We say their names and hold a too-long list of others in our hearts. As a Target team, we've huddled, we've consoled, we've witnessed horrific scenes similar to what's playing out now and wept that not enough is changing. And as a team we've vowed to face pain with purpose."'

The Target Lake Street store in its hometown was looted and heavily damaged, but the ceo said the retailer is sending truckloads of first aid equipment and other essentials to areas to make sure areas hit hardest by demonstrations get needed supplies. Associates at the Lake Street store are being given their full pay "'in the coming weeks"' and access to other opportunities.

Barbara Kahn, a marketing professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, praised Target's reaction, but noted that weighing in on such an issue can make for a touchy bit of corporate communication.

She said companies need to weigh in in a way that fits with their corporate values. Read More

Lowe's - Kohl's - Best Buy - Walmart
Retail leaders react to protests, riots in wake of George Floyd killing

Many of the nation's top retail leaders reached out to their employees and the community at large as stores went dark in select locations across the country amid disruptions and destruction in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Marvin Ellison of Lowe's, struck a personal note in his letter to employees regarding the recent unrest.

"'I grew up in the segregated south and remember stories my parents shared about living in the Jim Crow South,"' he wrote. "'During this time of Jim Crow, people of color were viewed and considered second class citizens. So, I have a personal understanding of the fear and frustration that many of you are feeling. To overcome the challenges that we all face, we must use our voices and demand that ignorance and racism must come to an end."'

The senior leadership team of Best Buy, which is based in the suburbs of Minneapolis, posted a letter on the company's website in which it renewed its commitment to diversity and inclusion goals.

"'Every time we see this kind of tragedy it can be hard not to feel emotional, not just for the human being affected or their family, but for the colleagues we know who could be - and have been - victims of overt, hostile and even dangerous racism. If we allow ourselves, it is not hard to imagine them lying on the ground begging to breathe or bravely staring racism in the eye as they walk through a park,"' the letter stated.

Kohl's CEO Michelle Gass addressed the company's employees in a video message.

"Racism is not a new crisis, it is a long-standing systemic problem that has yet to be solved," she said. "We must continue to work to address the underlying biases and issues. We can stand together against racism and discrimination. We can support each other. We can create the good we want to see in the world."

Walmart president and CEO Doug McMillon also reached out to employees.

"'At a time when our response to the COVID-19 crisis has brought out the best in us, what took place earlier this week is further proof we must remain vigilant in standing together against racism and discrimination,"' he stated. "'Doing so is not only at the heart of the values of our company, it's at the core of the most basic principles of human rights, dignity and justice."' chainstoreage.com

'Black Lives Matter'

Shares personal story of his Harvard college summer labor research work in South Africa where he was hoping to help them carve out a larger share of the economic pie for disenfranchised African workers, largely miners. A week after leaving Harvard's beautifully manicured campus, I found myself in a church in Khayelitsha, a black township on the outskirts of Cape Town, where most homes were flimsy sheets of plastic stretched across stray pipes and drift wood. What began as a political gathering quickly changed when the church was surrounded by armored vehicles, manned by teenage conscripts who in Afrikaans ordered us to break up. The orders, over bullhorns, turned into tear gas and eventually rubber bullets. The lessons learned that summer have remained with me for a lifetime. Read his full letter

Protests Take Calmer Tone Nationwide & Globally
Costs Start Coming in: Minneapolis $1B+

Protesters Regroup After Unrest Eases Across Country

From New York to Philadelphia to D.C., marches were largely peaceful,
with few reports of violence

Mass demonstrations across the U.S. gave way to a night of relative calm Tuesday, in contrast with the destruction of recent nights, as anger simmered.

In Minneapolis, where protests first began May 26, people gathered again early Wednesday morning outside the Cup Foods market where Mr. Floyd was arrested and which has become a memorial and gathering place for mourners and protesters.

Thousands of peaceful demonstrators gathered during the day in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Milwaukee and the Washington, D.C., region, protesting.

In New York, arrests and incidents of looting fell Tuesday night, after widespread looting and vandalism on previous nights. NYPD officials said 280 people were arrested in incidents associated with protests over Mr. Floyd's death on Tuesday, down from more than 700 arrests Monday. The number of officers injured fell to two or three, from seven injuries the night before, the officials said.

In Washington, a late-afternoon march wended its way from Lafayette Square near the White House for more than a mile through the capital, eventually heading for the Lincoln Memorial. The protesters drifted away without any obvious incidents about 15 minutes before the city's 7 p.m. curfew arrived.

A protest in Portland, Ore., did turn violent late Tuesday night, according to the Portland Police Bureau on Twitter. Police said demonstrators threw projectiles at them, set fires and lighted fireworks. Police declared the scene an unlawful assembly and closed Pioneer Courthouse Square. "'Any person in the area must leave now or be subject to arrest or use of force, including riot-control agents and impact munitions,"' the bureau said on Twitter.

Minnesota state officials also began tallying up the economic costs of a week of unrest, saying early estimates showed damage to property is approaching $1 billion. The estimate from the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce doesn't include job losses or looting. wsj.com

Opinion: In Europe, We Also Can't Breathe
So why are we protesting police brutality in the U.S. but not at home?

Europe is no stranger to police brutality. So why do we fail to show the same anger and willingness to protest when we are confronted with incidents of police violence at home?

In Belgium, France, Berlin, London and Auckland, why are people joining in the chorus of "'Black Lives Matter"' chants, but staying silent in the face of police brutality and racism in their own countries?

It's not for lack of tragic incidents. Just a few weeks ago, Adil - a 19-year-old teen of Moroccan descent - was killed during a police chase in Brussels while allegedly fleeing from a police check. His death sparked calls for justice and short-lived riots in his neighborhood, but it did not mobilize people in the way we're seeing today.

Nobody organized mass protests or connected his death to the larger struggle to combat systemic racism. Hardly any politicians spoke out, and those who did met with massive backlash from the public and police unions. If the problem is more pervasive - and more visible - in the U.S., Europe is not immune to discrimination and violence at the hands of police. And yet we are still far more reluctant to talk about it, and the result is that we have largely remained ignorant of the extent of the issue. politico.com


Riot-Related Violence

Saks Fights Back - Looting in NYC - But Curbed by Curfew

Safest Store in New York City?
Saks Fifth Avenue wrapped in razor wire, guarded by dogs to prevent looting
Saks Fifth Avenue surrounded its flagship Manhattan store with razor wire on Tuesday to keep thieves from smashing their way in and making off with troves of expensive merchandise, The Post has learned.

The luxury retailer has also hired private security guards with specially trained dogs to protect the premises in the wake of Monday night's looting of Macy's iconic Herald Square location.

At Saks, workers on Tuesday afternoon began attaching chain-link fencing to plywood that was previously installed to cover the luxury store's famed display windows. The second phase of the job saw workers further fortify the fencing with a coil of razor wire along the top edge.

At least seven German shepherds, Belgian Malinois and pit bull dogs were also on hand, along with guards who will use them to patrol outside the store in an attempt to deter looters amid the ongoing protests over the racially charged May 25 police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. nypost.com

Looters Outside Zara Assaulted NYPD Captain & Others Tuesday Night

Juan Garcia, 21, and Fernando Lopez, 18, both of 60-61 Myrtle Ave., Queens, allegedly exited the closed store through a broken window after stealing merchandise, police said. The arresting officer said he observed the suspects throwing the captain to the ground in an attempt to evade arrest. The officer suffered an abrasion to the chin, cops said.

The violence played out as the curfew in the Big Apple was pushed up to 8 p.m., with non-essential traffic banned in Manhattan south of 96th Street in the wake of increased violence and looting. nypost.com

Looters strike several NYC stores - but curfew appears to curb chaos
Looters struck in Manhattan again Tuesday, though the damage appeared to be much less than the outright chaos of the previous night, with cops seen making several arrests outside stores.

Police also made several arrests in Soho, where roving gangs had brazenly bashed through the windows of high-end stores a night earlier. According to a witness, a group of about 40 people on Tuesday evening tried to breach the Louis Vuitton store in the posh downtown neighborhood, but scattered when cops showed up. Police also cut off an access point to Soho at Grand Street and West Broadway after what looked like an attempted looting at the Gucci store, which was hit Sunday night. "Soho is closed. There's no Soho tonight,"' they said. nypost.com

CBS News review finds
More than 7,200 people were arrested in 43 cities across the country as a result of civil unrest stemming from protests on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, a CBS News review of arrests has found.

Insider Threat:
Verisk Field Analyst Pleads Guilty in Federal Court
To Stealing & Selling Employer's Database Info. For $2.5M
As reported on the Daily on 5/22/19 Timothy Young, 50, of Moorefield, Nebraska, pleaded guilty to wire fraud and faces 20 years in prison and a fine of the greater of $250,000, twice the gross profits to Young or twice the gross loss suffered by the victim.

Young was employed at a data analytics and risk assessment firm based in New Jersey. The company serves customers worldwide, including entities providing insurance and financial services as well as government entities. The company maintains a network that houses, among other things, significant amounts of personally identifiable information.

Without the firm's approval, Young obtained confidential, non-public information that belonged to the firm. The information included names, logon names, passwords, email addresses, and telephone numbers for some of the company's clients. Young then attempted to sell the information.

On or about March 3, 2019, an individual ("the Individual"), using alias, posted a message on an online forum. The message was titled "[Victim Company] Access for SALE."

"I am looking for a person or group who would be interested in buying network login information for a large corporation. It is a Fortune 500 company with annual profits of $2.5B. They are global in nature, but based in the US ... Types of databases include all property and casualty insurance claims including personal information...complete details of millions of individual buildings, medical claims. Details to every municipal water system in the US, every emergency communications center in the US, and every fire department in the US...

The message further stated that the Individual was asking for $2,500,000 in cryptocurrency for this information, and that the money could be put in escrow during the period of the sale.

On or about March 7, 2019, a confidential informant ("CI"), who has been reliable in the past, contacted the Individual at law enforcement's request.  justice.gov

Editor's Note: The Daily confirmed this information through various online data sources and by engaging a Nebraska NBC reporter directly, who was linked to Young himself and was able to confirm the information through multiple people and a family member on our behalf. NBC covered this after the Daily identified the company.

Interface Security Systems Expands its Interactive Monitoring Services with Integration of Wearable Personal Protection Devices

Company partners with RiskBand to integrate real-time monitoring of wearable safety devices with live support from trained security professionals

Earth City, MO -
Interface Security Systems, a leading managed services provider delivering managed network, asset protection, and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises, today introduced a new interactive security service that allows businesses to equip at-risk staff with a wearable safety device that is directly connected to the Interface Interactive 24/7 Central Command Centers. Through a partnership with RiskBand, a leading provider of wearable live-monitored safety devices, Interface is enabling businesses including retailers and restaurants to make wearable safety devices an essential component of their emergency response strategy.

The wearable personal protection device can be worn on a lanyard, belt, vest, jacket, or pants. A single push of a button provides two-way voice communications, user profile data, man down and hard fall detection capabilities, near real-time images, and geolocation data to Interface's trained security professionals who can immediately assess the situation, intervene and deploy the appropriate emergency response.

"'Many businesses are forced to operate with reduced staff and adapt their offerings to include new services such as curbside pick-up. In times like these, more attention needs to be placed on protecting assets and increasing safety measures for employees and customers,"' said Brent Duncan, Chief Revenue Officer at Interface Security Systems. "'This new service enables businesses to add another layer of protection for their associates when they are working alone, for locations with limited or no existing protection, or to expand security coverage outside a business' building."'

"'RiskBand is excited to partner with an industry leader like Interface, one of the most respected security service providers in the US. With the combined power of our solutions, businesses will gain peace of mind knowing that their employees and premises are always protected by trained security professionals and state-of-the-art wearable devices,"' added Jim Van Law, CEO and Co-founder of RiskBand.

The new Personal Protection Monitoring Service is available immediately to Interface customers as a cost-effective expansion to their existing solutions or to new customers as an autonomous solution that can be implemented quickly with a minimal investment.

U.S. Remote Workers Lead the World In Malicious Activity
More than 30% of Employee Accounts Worldwide Compromised Since Starting Remote Work

OneLogin, a leader in identity and access management, released added findings from a survey of 5,000 remote workers showing just how freely employees use corporate devices for non-work related activity, regardless of cybersecurity hazards.

The study found that 33 percent of workers have admitted to using a corporate Zoom account for online socializing with friends or family since they started working remotely and 30 percent of those surveyed admitted to having an online account compromised during that time, with 10 percent of these failing to change their password afterward.
Even though corporations own and are responsible for the devices that employees are using to expose them to potential security breaches, half of organizations (50 percent) globally have not established cybersecurity guidelines regarding remote work. A closer look at how individual countries practice security highlights the differences in the misuse of corporate channels and willingness to access high-risk websites. The study found the following:

US remote employees use work devices to access adult entertainment sites more than any other country, increasing their risk of phishing and other malicious activity.

US workers (45 percent) are three times as likely to have given their work passwords to their child or spouse compared to countries like the UK (13 percent) and France (9 percent)

Over 60 percent of US workers have admitted to having an online account compromised since starting to work remotely - 2X the global average (32 percent)

US and Republic of Ireland were far more likely to use corporate Zoom accounts for online socializing.

Hacker leaks database of dark web hosting provider
A hacker has leaked online today the database of Daniel's Hosting (DH), the largest free web hosting provider for dark web services.

According to a cursory analysis of today's data dump, the leaked data includes 3,671 email addresses, 7,205 account passwords, and 8,580 private keys for .onion (dark web) domains. "The leaked database contains sensitive information on the owners and users of several thousand darknet domains," threat intelligence firm Under the Breach told ZDNet today after we asked the company to analyze the leak. zdnet.com

Companies Fall Short on Mandatory Reporting of Cybercrimes
Nearly two-thirds of organizations continue to fail to report cybercrimes, even when the reporting may be required to comply with regulations or the law, according to a report released today.

In its "State of Cybersecurity 2020" report, education and certification organization ISACA found 62% of 2,051 surveyed cybersecurity professionals think their companies under-reported cybercrimes and, in two-thirds of cases, think the reporting of cybercrimes is mandated by regulation or law. Only 16% of companies accurately report cybercrimes, respondents said.

The high failure rate for reporting may be a sign that companies are not disclosing breaches when they should, but is more likely speculation that a vulnerable asset has the potential to be breached, says Ed Moyle, a founding partner for consultancy Security Curve, which wrote the report for ISACA. darkreading.com

Anti-Racism Demonstrations Spill Into Canada


Protests Turn Violent in Montreal as Windows Were Smashed, Fires Set

10,000 and 15,000 people took to the streets on Sunday, calling for racial justice and an end to police brutality

A Montreal anti- racism protest demanding justice for a black Minnesota man who died following a police intervention last week degenerated into clashes between police and some demonstrators on Sunday night.

The march had snaked its way through downtown Montreal on Sunday afternoon without incident, but Montreal police declared the gathering illegal about three hours after it began when they say projectiles were thrown at officers who responded with pepper spray and tear gas..

Windows were smashed, fires were set and the situation slid into a game of cat-and-mouse between pockets of protesters and police trying to disperse them.

Montreal-North is also the location of one of the worst COVID-19 outbreaks in Canada. The day following the rally, Premier François Legault again told reporters there's no such thing as systemic discrimination in Quebec. Nicolas and Mousseau both argue that at the heart of the problem is Quebec politicians' refusal to contend seriously with systemic racism.

From the police, through to the city and the province, people who hold positions of power have resisted calls to actually address how racism impacts racialized people, especially as seen in the city's police force. cbc.ca  nationalobserver.com

Downtown Toronto businesses boarded up as riots continue south of the border
Some downtown retail stores have boarded up their windows amid fears of rioting similar to what has been observed in a number of U.S. cities but Mayor John Tory is expressing confidence that Torontonians will continue to protest peacefully and says that any suggestion otherwise is likely just the musings of a small group of people who "'spend a lot of their time in their basement typing out these kind of messages."'

On Monday evening crews were seen boarding up the Hudson's Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue department stores on Queen Street West as well as a Best Buy location near Dundas and Bay streets as riots continued to break out south of the border following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. cp24.com

11 arrested during looting that followed peaceful anti-racism protest
A largely peaceful anti-racism demonstration that drew thousands of protesters to Montreal's downtown core Sunday evening ended on a violent note as a handful of people tried their hand at looting and vandalism in the protest's final hours. On Monday morning, Montreal police reported 11 people had been arrested - nine for breaking and entering, one for armed assault and one for mischief montrealgazette.com

Toronto stores are reopening despite mounting positive cases
Can you spread coronavirus by handling the merchandise?

As Toronto is seeing its highest number of new COVID-19 cases on average since the beginning of the pandemic, shoppers have been flocking to stores that opened their doors last week under phase one of the province's plan to reopen the economy.

It raises questions about how stores plan to keep customers and employees safe: What happens to clothes or items people try on or touch but don't buy? Should everyone be wearing a mask?

The government has said only fitting rooms with doors should be used, and not curtains, to facilitate disinfecting, but there is no specific government guidance on how to handle clothing that has been tried on but not purchased, or that has been returned.

The Retail Council of Canada, having looked at the practices of businesses in other countries, suggests isolating the clothing for at least one day after it's been tried on or returned, and closing every other fitting room to maintain physical distancing. waterloochronicle.ca

Protests complicate delivery operations for Amazon, other retailers
Amazon.com Inc., No. 1 in the 2020 Digital Commerce 360 Top 500, scaled back deliveries and adjusted routes in cities including Chicago and Los Angeles, Apple Inc. (No. 2) kept some outlets shut, while Target Corp. (No. 12) extended store closures nationwide after the death of George Floyd sparked demonstrations across the country.

Apple had reopened about 130 of its about 270 stores following the coronavirus pandemic, and most of them were closed on Sunday, the company said in a statement.

Protests around the country are complicating operations for companies from Amazon, which has been one of the few consumer-facing companies to generate new business during the pandemic, to Target, which still retains a heavy bricks-and-mortar presence.

Based in Minneapolis where Floyd died in police custody, Target had already closed 32 stores in the area. On Sunday, it said it was closing dozens more around the nation, at least temporarily. digitalcommerce360.com
