Peaceful Demonstrations Continue for 10th Night
But What Will the Weekend Bring in NYC, LA and D.C.?

Protests remain calm, but even larger crowds could turn out this weekend

Protesters gathered around the country for the 10th straight day on Thursday, with large crowds forming in New York, Washington and Minneapolis, where the memorial service was held for George Floyd, who died while in police custody.

New York: Video circulated on social media of New York police officers arresting a delivery worker on Thursday night, despite regulations that allow essential workers to continue working after curfew. Shortly after midnight, Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that the arrest was "NOT acceptable" and that he had spoken with the police commissioner, Dermot Shea, about the matter. In a second tweet, he added that the same applies for journalists.

Los Angeles: Large crowds gathered in Los Angeles for another day of mostly-peaceful protests. At one point, Police Chief Michel Moore came out and spoke to people in the crowd.

Washington D.C.: As a spring storm tore through Washington, well over a hundred protesters chanted at the mouth of Lafayette Square: "We're not leaving."

Detroit: Another night of peaceful protests ended shortly after curfew in Detroit. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan attended the demonstration, as did Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey.  nytimes.com

1 Million Protesters in D.C. on Saturday?
Police chief says it could be the 'largest that we've had'
"We have a lot of public, open-source information to suggest that the event on this upcoming Saturday may be one of the largest that we've had in the city," D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said during a briefing Thursday.

"We expect that Saturday's demonstration will, like I said, be more of the same peaceful demonstrators coming to exercise their First Amendment right in Washington, D.C.," he said.

Chatter on social media suggests that as many as 1 million demonstrators could turn out to the nation's capital on Saturday, which sets up the possibility of more clashes with law enforcement and even violent agitators trying to take advantage of the large protest.  wtop.com

Protesters, officials call for police to be defunded

NYC, Philadelphia, LA among the cities targeted for cuts

Some protesters and officials are calling for police departments to be defunded and for the money to instead be put toward programs that benefit communities of color.

The call for police budget cuts comes at a time when most states were already faced with the need to reevaluate spending amid deficits and economic uncertainty that are a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday in Phoenix, protesters carried signs calling for the defunding of police. That same day in Seattle, demonstrators carried "Black Lives Matter" signs, calling for cuts to the police department's budget and shifting the money to social programs. Protesters have also called for budget cuts in New York City, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

In New York, the police department faces the threat of budget cuts for the first time in at least 20 years, the New York Post reported. yahoo.com

NYC Budget Debate Between de Blasio & the Council Might be Dominated
by Push to "Defund the Police"
Anthonine Pierre, Deputy Director at the Brooklyn Movement Center, is part of a coalition of police and criminal justice reform groups calling for a restructuring of the NYPD's budget. "It's time to defund the police, it's time to take $1 billion from their budget," Pierre said.

Advocates are calling on Mayor Bill de Blasio to slash the NYPD's $6 billion budget. Instead, they want the mayor to redirect funds to youth services and social programs -- all which they say will be needed as the city's most vulnerable recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

The call to "defund the NYPD" is likely to become a flash point in this year's budget negotiations. A budget agreement is due at the end of June. ny1.com

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Officials Cutting $100 Million-$150 Million From LAPD Budget, Funds To Be Reinvested In Communities Of Color
"We will not be increasing out police budget," said the mayor. That allocation is pegged at $1.8 billion in the mayor's previously proposed budget.

The mayor proceeded to announce $250 million in cuts to the proposed budget and to reallocate those dollars to communities of color, "so we can invest in jobs, in education and healing." L.A. Police Commission President Eileen Decker then announced that $100 million-$150 million of those cuts would come from the police department budget. deadline.com

Minneapolis City Council members aim to 'dismantle' police department, 'rethink' public safety
Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to "dismantle" the police department and replace it with "a transformative new model for public safety."

Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city's Ward 5, explicitly led calls to "dramatically rethink" how the city keeps its people safe. foxnews.com

What does "defund the police" mean?
The basic idea is less that policing budgets should be literally zeroed out than that there should be a massive restructuring of public spending priorities. The idea might be dismissed as politically untenable or lacking public policy backing. But it interacts in a potent way with the other crisis of the moment - the Covid-19 pandemic, which has pushed state and local government budgets into crisis.

The "defund" slogan dances ambiguously between abolition-type schemes and just saying officials should spend less money on policing at the margins. The Black Lives Matters #DefundThePolice explainer page argues that "law enforcement doesn't protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them." vox.com

Protest Arrests & Looting
Mass Arrests in NYC - Saks in the News - Retailers Beef Up Security

NYPD enforces curfew, arrests dozens of protesters across NYC

Police finally enforced an 8 p.m. curfew Thursday evening by busting up protests across the city - making dozens of arrests.

Thousands of protesters had continued to march in defiance of the deadline, including in Upper Manhattan, in the Bronx and in Brooklyn, on the eighth day of citywide demonstrations against police brutality.

An approximately 100-person demonstration in the Bronx organized by activist group DecolonizeThisPlace, devolved into chaos when NYPD cops in riot gear blocked off the march near East 136th Street and Brook Avenue. The marchers chanted "let us go," but their pleas fell on deaf ears.

Just minutes after 8 p.m., cops stormed in to make arrests. They were seen pulling individual protesters out of the melee, placing them in zip ties and taking them into vans, as a recording about the curfew played. nypost.com

Safest Store in NYC - Saks Fifth Gets More Press
Retailers continue to beef up security as looting fears continue
Retailers across the country are boosting their defenses to protect against looting, including by hiring armed guards, planting scouts to keep watch out front and securing storefronts with barbed wire, The Post has learned.

As The Post reported on June 2, iconic department store Saks Fifth Avenue has fortified its New York City flagship with a razor wire-topped fence and security guards outfitted with attack dogs. But sources say the trend is becoming more widespread and even hitting the normally peaceful suburbs.

Security professional Michael Sapraicone, head of Squad Security, says he's received multiple requests by retailers looking to protect against a spate of high-profile ransackings by people looking to take advantage of nationwide civil unrest. Some of the requests are too risky to even consider, he said. "We are turning down the calls we are getting to put armed guards inside unopened stores at night." nypost.com

Department of Justice Responds to Unrest
Barr Blames Extremists - Injuries & Hospitalizations - Looters Charged

Attorney General William P. Barr's Remarks on Mr. George Floyd and Civil Unrest
As I told the governors on Monday, we understand the distinction among three different sets of actors. The large preponderance of those who are protesting are peaceful demonstrators who are exercising their First Amendment rights.

At some demonstrations, there are groups that exploit the opportunity to engage in looting. And finally, at some demonstration, there are extremist agitators who are hijacking the protests to pursue their own separate and violent agenda.

We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups, as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions, have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity. We are also seeing foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence. justice.gov

Around 114 law enforcement officers injured in Washington riots, AG says
Injuries of varying severity as a result of the unrest in the US capital, were inflicted upon 114 employees of various US security agencies, including special services, US Attorney general William Barr announced during a press conference.

Walmart's Senior Manager, Global Technology - Charged in $8M COVID Fraud
Arkansas Project Manager Charged in Oklahoma with $8M COVID-Relief Fraud

Fraudulently Sought $8M+ in CARES Act SBA Paycheck Protection Program Loans

A project manager employed by a major retailer was charged in a complaint unsealed Wednesday for allegedly filing fraudulent bank loan applications seeking more than $8 million in forgivable loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Benjamin Hayford, 32, of Centerton, Arkansas, was charged in a federal criminal complaint filed in the Northern District of Oklahoma with wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements to a financial institution, and making false statements to the SBA.

Hayford allegedly sought millions of dollars in forgivable loans guaranteed by the SBA from multiple banks by claiming fictitious payroll expenses. To support his applications, Hayford allegedly provided lenders with fraudulent payroll documentation purporting to establish payroll expenses that were, in fact, non-existent. In addition, Hayford represented to a financial institution that the Limited Liability Partnership for which he applied for relief was established in January 2020 and was operating as of Feb. 15, 2020. In fact, a search of the contents of Hayford's email account revealed that Hayford did not create the partnership until April 2020, several days before he began applying for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

Benjamin J. Hayford, Senior Manager, Global Technology Operations & Portfolio at Walmart: LinkedIn page shows Founding Partner of Global Policy & Strategy Partners (GPS Partners) starting May 2018 to present right below his current position at Walmart as Senior Manager, Global Technology Operations & Portfolio from Oct 2019 to present after having started at Walmart in May 2019 as Senior Manager, Global Business Services Transformation.

A Walmart spokesperson clarified that the charges are not related to his work at the company, issuing the following statement:

"Mr. Hayford has been suspended without pay under our arrested associate policy and no longer has access to any company property or systems. The criminal charges filed by the Department of Justice are not connected to Walmart or Mr. Hayford's work for the company. Because this is a federal criminal charge, we are referring additional questions to the Justice Department." kfor.com justice.gov linkedin.com

1st COVID Class Action Moves Forward
McDonalds Can't dodge COVID-19 Class Action Safety Suit in Illinois

Ill. state court refused Wednesday to toss out a proposed class action of Chicago McDonald's employees accusations that the company and certain franchisees haven't done enough to protect them amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Judge rejected McDonald's argument that government agencies had primary jurisdiction to hear claims that the fast-food giant allegely subpar response to the coronavirus has endangered its workers and constitutes a public nuisance.

"No one is asking the court to create any safety regulations" regarding the pandemic, Judge Reilly said. The dispute in the workers case concerns whether McDonald's has followed regulations already distributed in response to the health crisis. law360.com

"Tidal Wave" of OSHA Record-Keeping Violations Coming
How Can Employers Tell If COVID-19 Is Work-Related?

Employers should expect a "tidal wave" of OSHA citations for record-keeping violations, said Eric Conn, an attorney with Conn Maciel Carey in Washington, D.C. But he said that employers usually will prevail if they conduct case-by-case workplace analyses for employees who have contracted COVID-19 and either conclude an illness is not work-related or record it in the OSHA 300 log if it is.

Employers must investigate whether workers with COVID-19 contracted it at work, but determining that is difficult because the virus is so widespread. One option employers have is to document alternative explanations for the cause of the illness, if there are any, to prevent Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) penalties.

If someone at work contracts the coronavirus, investigate the cause and document the investigation. If the case is not work-related, carefully document the reasons why not. This may not prevent an OSHA citation, but it can be useful for a company defending itself against paying penalties.

An employee's COVID-19 illness is likely to be work-related if any of the following apply:

There is a cluster of employees who have tested positive.
An employee tests positive shortly after long-term interaction with someone else at work who also tested positive.
A worker has regular, frequent exposure to the public.

OSHA included an exception to the recording rule: Coronavirus is not work-related if there is an alternative, nonwork explanation, Conn explained. "That's an enormous carve-out that almost swallows the entire rule," he said. shrm.org

A Conclave of America's Top CEOs Talks Race and Making Change
More than 300 chief executives, mayors and government officials gather online for a rare peer-to-peer conversation about race relations and social justice

Leaders of General Motors Co., Johnson & Johnson, American Airlines Group Inc. and other big businesses gathered via Zoom this week for a roundtable about the business impacts of the coronavirus. With protests gaining momentum across the U.S., the participants quickly changed the subject.

What followed was a rare peer-to-peer conversation among more than 300 chief executives, mayors and government officials about race relations and social justice-and the public role plenty of chief executive officers now see for themselves.

"There are few decisions we make that aren't political-whether it's access to restrooms, whether it's what candidate we might support in a particular stand that we're going to take on an environmental issue-so, frankly, I think that comes with the territory," Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky said.

The CEOs this week on the call stressed a heightened sense of urgency and responsibility to drive change. wsj.com

Cybercriminals exposed 5 billion records in 2019,
costing U.S. organizations over $1.2 trillion

Cybercriminals exposed over 5 billion records in 2019, costing over $1.2 trillion to U.S. organizations, according to ForgeRock. Coupled with breaches in 2018 costing over $654 billion, breaches over the last two years have cost U.S. organizations over $1.8 trillion.

● Personally identifiable information (PII) remained as the most targeted data by attackers and was exposed in 98% of 2019 breaches, up from 97% in 2018.

● Unauthorized access was the most common attack vector used in 2019, responsible for 40% of breaches, followed by ransomware and malware at 15% and phishing at 14%.

● By targeting PII and leveraging unauthorized access, cybercriminals highlight how weaknesses in enterprises' identity and access management (IAM) practices increasingly allow for greater volumes and more sensitive types of data to be pilfered.

● In fact, social security numbers (SSNs) were the most targeted type of data compromised as they were exposed in 384 breaches in 2019. helpnetsecurity.com

Security Think Tank: CISO Stress - Moving from Recognition to Action
Cyber criminals are enjoying a boom during the Covid-19 pandemic, and security teams are working overtime as a result. How can security professionals manage their increased workload, safeguard their mental well-being and avoid burnout?

In our report released earlier this year - CISO stress: Life inside the perimeter: one year on,  research showed that stress is now taking a greater toll on CISOs' mental and physical health, as well as their personal relationships. Even when they are technically out of the office, only 2% of CISOs said they were always able to switch off. Adding to that, 83% said they spent half their evenings and weekends or more thinking about work, blurring that line between personal and work lives even more.

A lack of work-life balance is one of the key components that contributes to work stress, so trying to fix this is imperative.

Part of that is a work culture shift: 39% of CISOs said they found long hours to be one of the most stress-inducing parts of their job. Adding to that, 95% said they worked more than their contracted hours, with 59% of CISOs working an extra 10 hours or more per week. computerweekly.com

Nearly 80% of Companies Experienced a Cloud Data Breach in Past 18 Months
Ermetic, cloud access risk security company, announced the results of a research study conducted by global intelligence firm IDC which found that nearly 80% of the companies surveyed had experienced at least one cloud data breach in the past 18 months, and nearly half (43%) reported 10 or more breaches.

According to the 300 CISOs that participated in the survey, security misconfiguration (67%), lack of adequate visibility into access settings and activities (64%) and identity and access management (IAM) permission errors (61%) were their top concerns associated with cloud production environments. Meanwhile, 80% reported they are unable to identify excessive access to sensitive data in IaaS/PaaS environments. In the recent 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, only hacking ranked higher than misconfiguration errors as a source of data breaches. securitymagazine.com

Amazon Responds to George Floyd's Killing
Company is working with black employees group to select organizations

for $10M donation
Amazon on Wednesday announced $10 million in new cash donations to 11 organizations "working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black and African Americans," the company said.

The donations follow social media posts in recent days by Amazon and other companies expressing solidarity with the Black community amid an uprising across the country over ongoing racial injustice, sparked by the death of George Floyd. Four Minneapolis police officers have been charged in his death.

Amazon is also making a grant to the company's Black Employee Network (BEN) affinity group to "fund local organizations that support education and racial equality initiatives in communities across the country where our employees live and work."

Angelina Howard, president of BEN, said in a company blog post the employee group worked "hand-in-hand" with Amazon leaders to select organizations that will receive support. seattletimes.com

Every executive has an agenda out of absolute necessity and in the normal course of doing business. Agendas, in essence, drive performance and results. However, it's the hidden agendas that one must be on the look out for because those are the ones that do the most damage to executives and companies. And while many tend not to acknowledge them, they do exist, and finding them is the key. Dealing with them and managing them is extremely difficult and oftentimes one finds his or herself managing the after effect and not even seeing them until it's too late.
