A Weekend of Peaceful Protests in U.S. as
Demonstrations Go Global

The scenes were dramatically different from the chaos of the previous weekend
as curfews were lifted & law enforcement pulled back

Streets in countless cities and towns across America filled with demonstrators again on Sunday as largely peaceful protests over systemic racism and police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, headed towards a third week.

Rallies swelled as some cities lifted the evening curfews and withdrew national guard support, and protesters claimed a landmark victory as a veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis city council pledged to dismantle the city's troubled police force.

The scenes were markedly different from the previous weekend, which saw police beating back protesters with teargas and batons, and a non-violent gathering in a Washington DC park on Monday forcibly cleared in military-style assault ahead of a photo opportunity for Donald Trump.

This weekend's protests, which saw moments of levity and jubilance, appeared to reflect a shifting mood across the country. theguardian.com

The city reported 40 shootings last week - the most in a week since 2015. In the same time period in 2019, there were 24 shootings, sources said. The increase in violence came as demonstrators marched city streets to protest the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. nypost.com

Retired St. Louis Police Department Captain David Dorn was killed early Tuesday morning outside of a local pawn shop he was reportedly defending from suspected looters, more than 40 years after his time at the police academy, and 13 years after his retirement from the police department.

Dorn, 77, died at 2:30 a.m. in the middle of a street after being shot in the torso by suspected rioters, according to the police incident report. The retired captain was said to be defending Lee's Pawn and Jewelry - a business that belonged to an old friend of his, KMOV4 reported. yahoo.com

Chicago, IL: City Paying Up To $1.2M To Private Security Firms To Deter Looting
After peaceful protests of the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd were marred by widespread vandalism and looting, city officials announced they would pay up to $1.2 million to three private security firms to avoid a repeat of last weekend's mayhem.

'They saved me': How protesters protected a lone cop, a moment captured in powerful photos
Hinshaw's nearest help was still blocks away. The crowd moved closer, and the yelling got angrier. Protesters hurled questions at him. Hinshaw tried to reason with the crowd. The 32-year-old was scared. It was only going to take one person, and everyone would jump in, he knew.

It was at this moment that a man emerged from the crowd in a red University of Louisville mask covering the lower half of his face. He put himself between the closest protester and Hinshaw. The Courier Journal captured the moment in a photograph that has now been shared across the nation. Local entrepreneur Darrin Lee Jr. spotted Hinshaw and the advancing crowd and linked arms with the stranger in the red mask. yahoo.com

Minneapolis council - a veto-proof majority - backs disbanding police force
A majority of the members of the Minneapolis City Council said Sunday they support disbanding the city's police department, an aggressive stance that comes just as the state has launched a civil rights investigation after George Floyd's death.

Nine of the council's 12 members appeared with activists at a rally in a city park Sunday afternoon and vowed to end policing as the city currently knows it. Council member Jeremiah Ellison promised that the council would "dismantle" the department.

"It is clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe," Lisa Bender, the council president, said. "Our efforts at incremental reform have failed, period."

Bender went on to say she and the eight other council members that joined the rally are committed to ending the city's relationship with the police force and "to end policing as we know it and recreate systems that actually keep us safe." yahoo.com

De Blasio Vows for First Time to Cut Funding for the N.Y.P.D.
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday pledged for the first time to cut the city's police funding, following 10 nights of mass protests against police violence and mounting demands that he overhaul a department whose tactics have caused widespread consternation.

The mayor declined to say precisely how much funding he planned to divert to social services from the New York Police Department, which has an annual budget of $6 billion, representing more than 6 percent of Mr. de Blasio's proposed $90 billion budget.

Mr. de Blasio said the details would be worked out with the City Council in advance of the July 1 budget deadline. nytimes.com

Barr Says There Is No Systemic Racism in Policing

The attorney general's remarks, which mirrored those of other administration officials, came as the president was scheduled to meet with law enforcement officials at the White House.

Attorney General William P. Barr said on Sunday that he did not believe racism was a systemic problem in policing, echoing other top administration officials' defense of an important part of President Trump's base as protests against police killings of unarmed black people continued across the nation.

"I don't think that the law enforcement system is systemically racist," Mr. Barr said in an interview with the CBS program "Face the Nation." "I think we have to recognize that for most of our history, our institutions were explicitly racist."

Their defense mirrored comments made last week by the national security adviser, Robert C. O'Brien, and came as the protests over the killing of George Floyd last month and racial injustice in policing continued to gain momentum. nytimes.com

'Worst Case Scenario'

How Would Texas Respond to a Hurricane in the Middle of COVID-19?

Forecasts show a 60% chance of above-normal activity this hurricane season,
with 13 to 19 named storms.

A worst-case scenario would be a major hurricane hitting the coast in late October as cold and flu season begins and as cases of COVID-19 could see a second spike across the country, according to Dr. Thomas A. LaVeist, dean of Tulane University's school of public health and tropical medicine. "That could be devastating," LaVeist said. "That will be a huge strain on resources."

Ordering an evacuation is typically the to-go response during a major hurricane, but officials will have to weigh whether that is the best course during the COVID-19 crisis, LaVeist said.

"It's not only the risk of the hurricane. It's also the risk of the evacuation," LaVeist said. govtech.com

The Ipsos Consumer Health & Safety Index, launched Wednesday
Ipsos' inaugural Consumer Health & Safety Index uncovers gaps in store practices

Benchmarks COVID-19 health and safety at retailers across seven industries.

Ipsos Mystery Shoppers conducted in-store visits of over 5700 retailers across the U.S. and learned which brands are successfully implementing health and safety measures and which ones are not.

Today, Ipsos, the global research firm, announced the launch of the Consumer Health & Safety Index: an ongoing health and safety benchmarking study that evaluates how retailers across seven industries are operating amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ipsos conducted a two-pronged study, first surveying 2,000 Americans to understand which health and safety attributes are most important to consumers in the current COVID-19 retail environment, followed by thousands of mystery shops that measured brand compliance to these health and safety attributes across 45 major U.S. brands.

"The ability to deliver on health and safety efforts is now the most important aspect of the customer experience, and it will be for some time", said Nick Mercurio, executive vice president and service line head of U.S. Channel Performance at Ipsos. "We found that 62% of shoppers would stop shopping at a retailer not taking health and safety seriously. Ensuring protections are in place to keep consumers safe, healthy and loyal in the 6-foot economy is the primary driver that inspired our inaugural Consumer Health & Safety index."

Employees at 25% of the stores visited in the Index wore face coverings improperly or not at all inside the store.

Employees at 51% of stores visited were not wearing gloves inside the stores.

77% of the stores visited did not provide any hand sanitizing or hand washing solution inside the entrance.

82% of the stores visited did not provide any hand sanitizing or hand washing solution at checkout.

64% of the stores visited had no staff actively cleaning interior high traffic areas, such as carts/baskets, counters, credit card readers, doors, and demos.

31% of the stores visited did not have plexiglass dividers at checkout.

58% of the stores visited were not observed to be managing the number of customers entering stores.

While there is definitely room for improvement, a few brands stood out among the crowd and offered superior performance implementing the health and safety measures of the new economy. Read more

Survey: More than half of employers to screen workers for COVID
Fifty-eight percent of employers are planning to conduct employee temperature or health screenings as part of reopening business plans, according a survey of 1,010 executives released Tuesday by the San Francisco-based employment law firm Littler Mendelson P.C.

The survey also found that 78% plan to reopen within three months, with 34% of those respondents saying they will do so within one month. Increasing frequency and depth of cleaning and disinfecting worksites was named the top safety protocol as 90% of respondents said they intend to focus on cleaner facilities.

Meanwhile, 87% said they plan on limiting or restricting employee contact in common areas; 86% plan on encouraging face coverings; 78% plan on maintaining distant work areas; 78% plan on continuing remote workspaces; and 68% plan on rotating work schedules. businessinsurance.com

Police Restraint Technique Used Again
Seattle cop removes colleague's knee from protester's neck, video shows
New video shows a Seattle cop stop his colleague from using his knee to pin a protester by the neck during demonstrations against the killing of George Floyd - who died after being restrained in the same manner.

Journalist Matt McKnight shared footage Saturday night of two officers tackling a white protester to the ground outside of a T-Mobile store. In the clip on Twitter, one of the officers can be seen kneeling on the neck of the man despite repeated cries from multiple protesters.

"Get your f-king knee off his neck," one of the bystanders could be heard shouting. nypost.com

The Privacy & Security Outlook for Businesses Post-COVID-19

Long-term business needs - and the ethical implications that result - don't simply go away just because we're navigating a global health crisis.

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc, organizations in all sectors are being challenged to adapt to unpredictable waves of change. As various jurisdictions begin to allow offices and other physical operations to reopen, business leaders are looking toward employee surveillance and mobile contact-tracing systems to simultaneously protect employee health and wellness and mitigate business and operational risks.

As you review your own plans to loosen the reins and return to a new normal, consider your options carefully - or risk compromising your long-term road map.

Contact Tracing: A Tenuous Balancing Act

The process of identifying people who may have come into contact with an infected person, typically for public health reasons, has rightfully emerged as a technique leveraged by businesses for near-term survival. In the battle against COVID-19, artificial intelligence-driven technologies are being deployed at scale in the mad rush to reduce the spread of the virus. However, this short-term solution comes with significant long-term implications because the impact of these predominantly reactive approaches warrants broader ethical debate. While no one disputes the life-saving benefits of contact tracing, data privacy experts are concerned about the fallout from hastily deployed technologies during the COVID-19 pandemic response.

Public Safety vs. Privacy

Changes in operational processes can be viewed as an opportunity to reinforce your employee's knowledge in the following areas:

● The organization's privacy policies
● Compliance and legal obligations around data privacy and security
● Procedural instructions around how to handle data, including providing personal data and other sensitive data to third parties

The business still needs to define where to draw the line between safeguarding the public and being surveillant of the public. How can we reap the benefits that contact tracing provides while still ensuring that the private information leveraged is obtained consensually and used only for specified purposes? darkreading.com

Could a cyber attack actually be good for your career?

Evidence suggests falling victim to a cyber attack may actually enhance your resume

Over the past decade, much has been made about the cyber security blame game, with the same question being asked: who should be accountable for a data breach or cyber incident? The answer, of course, is that it's never black or white. But in the aftermath of many major incidents, chief information security officers (CISOs) and chief information officers (CIOs) are let go, and sometimes the CEO follows them out of the door.

AdvertisementIn the case of one of the world's biggest credit score agencies, Equifax, all three stepped down from their respective roles after a catastrophic breach that affected 147 million people in the US, 14 million UK citizens and 100,000 Canadians. According to David Rimmer, the former CISO of Europe at Equifax, who was at the company during the breach, such decisions are not necessarily made for the right reasons.

"Often moves like that are made to satisfy shareholders and the press, rather than what's best for the company - providing continuity in leadership is really important during a breach response," he says.

A tainted CV or an invaluable experience?

While there is much talk about the immediate impact of a cyber incident, what about thereafter? Would the CIOs and CISOs who've been axed manage to get similar or even better jobs, or are their CVs tainted because of their association with a cyber incident? Would any cyber security or IT staff who leave of their own accord also find themselves in a similar situation?

According to Joe Hansard, cyber security recruitment consultant at La Fosse Associates, it wouldn't necessarily hamper their future employment prospects. "It would be how they reacted to the breach that they would be judged on," he suggests.

If they were allowed to continue in the role, at least for a short period of time, there is a greater chance that the incident could enhance their CV.

"I work within the contract market, and, if anything, being at an organisation during a breach adds value to a CV, not the opposite. They are able to get a first-hand account of the breach to understand what led to the breach and the incident response plan that followed," says Hansard. computerweekly.com

Enterprise mobile phishing increased by 37% in Q1 2020
There was a 37 percent increase worldwide in enterprise mobile phishing encounter rate between the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020, according to Lookout.

The cost of enterprise mobile phishing

The report also shows that unmitigated mobile phishing threats could cost organizations with 10,000 mobile devices as much as $35 million per incident, and up to $150 million for organizations with 50,000 mobile devices.

"Smartphones and tablets are trusted devices that sit at the intersection of their owner's personal and professional identity," said David Richardson, VP of product management at Lookout. "Cybercriminals are exploiting the ability to socially engineer victims on their mobile device in order to steal their credentials or sensitive private data." helpnetsecurity.com

Amazon reopens warehouses that were closed to protect them from looting
On Tuesday, Amazon temporarily shuttered two delivery stations in Chicago, Illinois, and Gary, Indiana, as protests erupted nationwide over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, at the hands of Minneapolis police. The anger in response to Floyd's killing resulted in clashes with police and looting in several cities.

Amazon moved to close the Gary facility, known as DIN2, after it received reports that trailers were damaged outside of the building late Monday night, an Amazon spokesperson told CNBC. It's unclear if any merchandise was stolen from the trailers or if any arrests were made as a result of the damaged trailers.

There was no damage to the Chicago facility, known as DCH1. Both were closed to protect employees and partners, the company said.  The facilities will reopen Wednesday in time for the night shift to begin at 8 p.m. CT. cnbc.com

PayThink AI opens a new front against payment fraud
It's important for financial services institutions and retailers to take an intelligence-based approach in the battle against bots, and automatically discover all application endpoints - API-based, web, mobile. That visibility lets them protect applications from automated bot attacks.

Competition is a good thing because it's what has made America so strong. Whether it's competition between companies or between executives, it has a tendency to bring out the best in most people and in most organizations. It leads to innovation, invention, growth and it instills a sense of competition in everything we do that tends to motivate and challenge people to reach beyond their own self-definitions of what they can do or can't do. Without it, progress, which is slow to begin with, would be stifled but, with it, you have inspiration and purpose. The whole key is how you compete in the open market, whether as a company or as an executive, reflecting professional standards and a code of ethics is critical even when your competition isn't. The #1 rule should always be never speak ill of the competition because in actuality it's more of a reflection of who you are and not who they are.
