'Open-Carry Texas' Doesn't Care What Retailers Want
38,000 in Texas in Open Defiance to Walmart
Retailers Walk Thin Line by Asking, Not Telling, Shoppers Not to Carry Guns
David Amad, a gun rights activist and the vice president of Open Carry Texas, is not especially bothered by Walmart's recent announcement that it is "respectfully requesting" that customers not openly carry guns into its stores.

Mr. Amad said many of his group's 38,000 members had carried their guns openly into Walmart stores since the retailer made the policy public last Tuesday. None have been asked to leave.

"They are ducking the issue," Mr. Amad said of Walmart. "They are trying to get the gun haters to leave them alone, while at the same time leave us alone when we carry in their stores."

But none of the retailers have banned guns in their stores outright, even though legal experts say that is something they could do.

"It's a private property," said Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. "A retailer can refuse service to anyone so long as it is not on the basis of race, religion or another protected group.
That does not apply to gun owners."

In some places, where gun rights are paramount, retailers said they might have a hard time enforcing a ban because local officials might believe that open-carry rights superseded store policies.

The new policies appear to be achieving something that have been elusive in the nation's long-running gun debate:
some form of middle ground.

Walmart employees are instructed not to obstruct peaceful shoppers from openly carrying guns in the stores. In some stores, a Walmart spokesman said, employees are used to seeing some customers with guns during hunting season. But if an employee or customer feels unsafe, the store workers should call law enforcement.

More than 40 states allow open carry in some form. nytimes.com


Fort Worth, TX: Texas gun range tags Walmart in posts promoting its dispensers that sell bullets by the pound

AI & Impacting The Employment Process
Illinois Gov. Pritzker signs 1st-of-its-kind law regulating use of artificial intelligence (AI) in Illinois - Effective Jan. 1, 2020
While the use of AI in the employment decision-making process might sound futuristic, many U.S. companies already use AI to streamline hiring and make the process more objective. They use AI to scan resumes, schedule interviews, and recently, to actually conduct the first round of job interviews.

These AI interviewing programs have different algorithms and methods, but essentially, they measure an applicant's facial expression, word choice, body language, and vocal tone, among other factors.

In response to the evolution of AI in the hiring context, Illinois legislators unanimously passed HB 2557, The Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act. Employers should take note that the law now requires employers who use artificial intelligence to analyze video interviews to do the following:

Provide notice: Employers must inform applicants that AI will be used to analyze their interview videos. (A provision requiring written notice was removed from the bill.)
Provide an explanation: Employers must explain to the applicant how their artificial intelligence program works and what characteristics the AI uses to evaluate an applicant's fitness for the position.
Obtain consent: Employers must obtain the applicant's consent to be evaluated by AI before the video interview and may not use AI to evaluate a video interview without consent.
Maintain confidentiality: Employers will be permitted to share the videos only with persons whose expertise or technology is needed to evaluate the applicant.
Destroy copies: Employers must destroy both the video and all copies within 30 days after an applicant requests such destruction (and instruct any other persons who have copies of the video to destroy their copies as well).

While the act is set to take effect at the beginning of 2020, questions regarding the interpretation of the legislation are still unanswered:

What kind of "explanation" is sufficient? - Will there be a private right of action? - What type of damages and how much? - What is the scope?  shrm.org

Cannabis Stores - A New Robbery Target
Storing Large Sums of Cash - 'Public Safety Risks'
'Cannabis Banking: The Prospects for Legal Protection'
The trend of states legalizing cannabis - 33 Medical Marijuana states plus the District of Columbia and 10 Adult-Use states and counting - while it remains illegal under federal law poses a dilemma for U.S. financial institutions. While some banks and credit unions have chosen to serve cannabis businesses, most refuse to do so given the ongoing legal uncertainty. With limited banking access, many cannabis businesses are forced to operate with, and store large sums of cash, which can create public safety risks. In recognition of this situation, there is a growing consensus that, regardless of one's views about legalization itself, the problem of cannabis banking must be addressed.

On July 23, the Senate Banking Committee held an important hearing on the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, which would provide a level of legal protection for financial institutions serving marijuana-related businesses (MRBs). cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

UK: Violent retail crime leading to PTSD for shop staff
The report by City, University of London, says a rise in violent retail crime is causing "long-lasting anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder" among workers in the sector. More than 42,000 assaults or threats were recorded in the industry in 2018. Dr Emmeline Taylor, the report's author, says government action is "urgently needed" to protect staff.

"All too frequently, shop workers are suffering physical injuries, as well as chronic and life changing mental health consequences of violence, such as long-term anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder," the report states. According to the research, the four main scenarios that lead to violent interactions are: encountering shoplifters, enforcing age-restrictions on the sale of goods, hate-crime related incidents and armed and unarmed robberies.  bbc.com

Walmart AP & AI Combating Shrink
Retailers Are Getting Smarter About Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are starting to play a bigger role in retail, foreshadowing what's to come in the new decade of the 2020s.

Walmart, for instance, hopes to reduce checkout theft by turning to cameras powered by AI, with deployments underway in some 1,000 stores. "The retailer began investing in the surveillance program, dubbed Missed Scan Detection, several years ago in an effort to combat shrinkage - loss due to several causes including theft, scanning errors, waste and fraud," the report stated. "The AI-powered cameras were rolled out to more than 1,000 stores about two years ago, and the retail giant has seen positive results since then, according to [Walmart spokeswoman LeMia] Jenkins, who said shrinkage has reduced in stores where the cameras have been added."

By incorporating visual recognition technology and artificial intelligence into their business models, retailers such as Neiman Marcus, IKEA, H&M and west elm are leveraging mobile devices and AI to provide advanced customer services. Those services include visual searches, hyper-personalization and seamless omnichannel functionality - all woven together, across online and brick-and-mortar channels, to enhance the consumer experience.

Blurring the Divide

According to PYMNTS research, AI and ML are blurring the divide between online and in-store shopping, and bringing an all-new human element into retail. pymnts.com

Amazon Among 51 CEOs Petitioning For Privacy Laws
An open letter to Congress asking for a consumer data privacy law was signed by 51 CEOs across tech and other industries, CNBC reported on Tuesday (Sept. 10).

Executives from the Business Roundtable said in the letter that putting a federal law in place is important and necessary to protect American consumers while also ensuring that the U.S. continues to lead the competitive global market.

"We are committed to protecting consumer privacy and want consumers to have confidence that companies treat their personal information responsibly. We urgently need a comprehensive federal consumer data privacy law to strengthen consumer trust and establish a stable policy environment where new services and technologies can flourish within a well-understood legal and regulatory framework," the letter said. pymnts.com

This Year's Hottest Phishing Lures
More Than 99% of Cyberattacks Need Victims' Help

Research highlights how most criminals exploit human curiosity and trust to click, download, install, open, and send money or information.

Most cybercriminals target people, not infrastructure: More than 99% of emails distributing malware from 2018 into 2019 required human interaction to click links, open documents, accept security warnings, or complete other tasks to effectively compromise an organization. Instead of targeting systems, criminals focus on people, their roles, and data they can access.

The data comes from Proofpoint, where for 18 months researchers observed attack trends to compile the "Human Factor 2019" report. What they found was an increasing sophistication and prevalence of social engineering across businesses as attackers shift from smash-and-grab ransomware campaigns to well-crafted business email compromise schemes and domain fraud.

Generic email harvesting made up nearly 25% of all phishing schemes in 2018, Proofpoint reports. Credential collection remains a strong focus this year, with techniques pivoting to Microsoft Office 365 phishing schemes and impostor attacks. Cloud storage, DocuSign, and Microsoft cloud service phishing are this year's hottest phishing lures, replacing last year's trend of "Brain Food," a botnet used to distribute diet-related spam to capture victims' credit cards. darkreading.com

Software Bugs: Gotta Catch 'Em All?
Beyond 'Patch or Perish' - CISOs' Risk-Based Approach to Fixing Vulnerabilities

For those not in the know, that vulnerability cat-and-mouse game goes like this: IT teams race to test and apply newly released, critical updates to software and systems - under cover of mitigating or compensating controls - before hackers create and field working exploits for the flaws the patches fix.

Such efforts continue nonstop. Risk Based Security's VulnDB team, for example, counted 11,092 newly disclosed vulnerabilities during the first half of 2019. Public exploits existed for 34 percent of those flaws, 53 percent of all of the vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely and nearly 5 percent of all of the bugs also affected security software.

Risk-Management Challenge

Security experts warn that patch management, or the larger question of vulnerability management, must be part of a much bigger-picture approach to managing risk.

"I don't see much written on vulnerability management in more holistic terms versus patch/bug fixing," says Phil Venables, a board director and senior adviser for risk and cybersecurity at Goldman Sachs Bank, via Twitter. "I've always found it immensely useful to think of vulnerability management as four layers, building on each other and in turn becoming more powerful as a risk mitigation approach."

Here are his four layers of vulnerability management:

'Amazon Employees for Climate Justice'
Amazon Employees Will Walk Out Over the Company's Climate Change Inaction
1st Time Workers at Seattle HQ Participate in Planned Strike

Over 900 Amazon employees have signed an internal petition pledging to walk out over their employer's lack of action on climate change. The demonstration, scheduled to start at 11:30 am Pacific time on September 20, will mark the first time in Amazon's 25-year history that workers at its Seattle headquarters have walked off the job, though many are taking paid vacation to do so. Most of the workers who have signed on so far work in Seattle, but employees in other offices, including in Europe, have indicated an interest in the event as well. The protest is part of a global general strike led by 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg taking place ahead of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on September 23. wired.com

"The State of Online Returns in 2019: A Global Study"
Narvar Global Study Finds Consumers Expect Easier Returns than Retailers Are Delivering

Frictionless returns are not yet a reality for today's consumers, according to a new report published today by Narvar, an intelligent customer engagement platform. The report, "The State of Online Returns in 2019: A Global Study," analyzes the sentiments of 3,519 online shoppers in five markets including the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Australia. The study found that a substantial portion of online shoppers globally do not find the returns process easy-only 60 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with their most recent return.

Friction in the online returns process is hurting retailers, particularly when it comes to retaining customers. Thirteen percent of shoppers said they wouldn't shop with a retailer again after their negative returns experience, and this number was four times higher for first-time shoppers (31 percent) as for returning customers (8 percent). By removing friction, retailers stand to recoup sales via exchanges and encouraging repeat purchases. A third of consumers were open to making an online exchange versus requesting a refund when presented with options ranging from easy swaps for different colors or sizes to free shipping.

Ecommerce returns are on the rise as online sales grow: Returns of online purchases are expected to cost U.S. retailers $550 billion by next year, which is 75 percent more than years prior. prnewswire.com




Four Suspected In Three-State $1 Million Burglary Ring Arrested After Police Chase In Wisconsin
Four men suspected of $1 million worth of burglaries in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin were arrested in the Milwaukee suburbs Sunday morning after a high-speed chase. The four men are from Illinois and Indiana, and police have been trying to catch them for months. They are suspected in more than 25 burglaries in at least three states.

Sunday morning, they were caught on surveillance video as they removed electronics from display cases at a Best Buy in Greenfield, Wisconsin, around 4 a.m. on Sunday. One of them used a ladder to pull items from a shelf. The men were leaving the store when Greenfield police arrived. A police chase ensued, reaching speeds of up to 70 mph on Interstate 43. Officers used a PIT maneuver to stop the burglars' van, which had been stolen in Milwaukee. The driver lost control and the van flipped. Police said the men are between the ages of 18 and 41. They also allegedly broke into Ulta Beauty, Kohl's, and Art's Camera stores in the area. Police said a large amount of stolen items was found inside the burglars' van. Some of the men were still wearing masks and gloves when they were arrested.

Charges likely will be filed later this week. Authorities have not said where else the burglars struck outside of Wisconsin.  chicago.cbslocal.com

Progress or moving forward has as much to do with which way you're facing as anything else. If you stay focused on facing your customer and not your internal team then you might find success is a little closer than you think. This goes for the vendor and for the retailer, as we all have customers to serve both internally and externally. And while it's impossible to always stay facing them the mere thought of it will bring you back a little faster if you just remember that your ultimate success is driven by your customers whether its individual stores or companies. Much too often we all tend to get lost in the politics of our inner group and use it as a means of avoiding having to accomplish difficult tasks. But all you've got to remember is to turn around and face the customer and then you'll be back on track getting things done and moving forward.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
