A Legal Perspective
How Does CCPA Act Impact Your Company?

The California Consumer Protection Act ("CCPA") & the "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" link
Must a business that doesn't sell California Consumer's Personal Information (PI) comply?
When the CCPA was signed into law confusion abounded about how to comply with it. One major question was whether an effected business that does not sell a consumer's PI, as defined in Section 1798.140(o)(1)(A)-(K), needed to comply with Sections 1798.120 and 1798.135. Section 1798.120 created an opt-out right to the sale of a consumer's PI and Section 1798.135 provides in part that, "A business that is required to comply with Section 1798.120 shall...Provide a clear and conspicuous link...Titled "Do Not Sale [sic.] My Personal Information" on its website's home page. While it may seem clear initially that these sections would not apply to a business that does not sell PI, Section 1798.140(t)(1) created confusion as to what a sale was as the term was broadly defined and could be construed to mean a transfer of PI between a business and a service provider or third party for valuable consideration.

CCPA Amendments Signed; Draft Regulations Released
Officials Attempt to Clarify Complex California Law's Requirements
Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed into law six amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act as well as another bill updating the state's long-standing data breach law to require notification of breaches that expose biometric and passport data.

In addition, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has released the first set of draft regulations to carry out CCPA, which is slated to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.

CCPA will provide sweeping privacy protections for California's residents. It includes, for example, a provision that will allow consumers to know what data companies are collecting on them. Another section gives consumers the right to have their personal information deleted from company databases (see: CCPA: The Start of a New Era of Consumer Privacy Laws?). govinfosecurity.com

Workers Making Lululemon Leggings Claim They Are Beaten
Lululemon, an athleisure brand whose leggings are worn by celebrities and Instagram influencers, are sourcing clothing from a factory where Bangladeshi female factory workers claim they are beaten and physically assaulted.

The Canadian brand recently launched a partnership with the United Nations to reduce stress levels and promote the mental health of aid workers.

Yet young female workers at a factory in Bangladesh making clothing for the label gave detailed accounts of how they struggled to survive on meagre wages and faced physical violence and regular humiliation at the hands of their managers, who called them "whores" and "sluts". The factory is owned and run by the Youngone Corporation, which supplies Lululemon.  theguardian.com

CNN's Critical Look at Target's Wages & Cut Hours
Target raised wages. But some workers say their hours were cut, leaving them struggling

Two years ago, Target (TGT) said it would raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour by the end of 2020. The move won praise from labor advocates and put pressure on other companies to also move to $15.

But some store workers say the wage increases are not helping because their hours are falling, making it difficult to keep their health insurance and in some cases to pay their bills.

CNN Business interviewed 23 current and former Target employees in recent months, including department managers, who say hours have been scaled back even as Target has increased starting wages. cnn.com

Silicon Valley Takes On Amazon's Cashierless 'Go' Stores
Zippin and Standard Cognition are two of the startups pitching their systems and apps as nonthreatening alternatives to Amazon's cashier-free tech.

SAN FRANCISCO- Amazon.com Inc. recently opened its fourth cashierless convenience store here, all located within a few blocks of each other. Nearby, two startups are each demonstrating their own technology that they envision powering cashier-free stores across America

This roughly one-square-mile stretch in the tech capital's bustling business district is emerging as a battleground to eliminate retailing's centuries-old checkout process and reinvent the way consumers shop.

Many startups, like San Francisco-based Zippin and Standard Cognition, are using technology similar to Amazon Go's, with camera systems powered by computer vision and machine-learning software that track people as they take items off shelves. Other companies are trying to automate the shopping cart to avoid a costly store overhaul.

The startups are pitching their technology to grocery chains, sports stadiums and convenience stores, promising to automate the checkout process, reduce theft and improve profit margins. Analysts expect Amazon eventually to license its technology to retailers and other businesses, and some startups already are positioning themselves as the smarter alternative. wsj.com

Walmart's 'An eye in the sky on inventory'
Determining the shelving stock in a grocery store or other retail location can require a worker to move products around and count everything they see. But Walmart is working toward a future where this is no longer the case.

This patent application outlines a system that uses curved shelving that will flatten as more inventory is placed on it. The lighter the inventory the larger the gap left between the curved shelving and the frame. A system of lasers would measure this gap and a computing system would use internal knowledge of what inventory is stocked where the measurement is taken to provide an inventory level. supplychaindive.com

Idex Biometrics report says biometric payment cards at mass market tipping point
The 13-page report "Biometric Payment Cards: Misconceptions, Ecosystem Benefits, & Market Activities" was produced for Idex by ABI Research, and reviews the benefits of biometrics to consumers using payment cards, as well as payment ecosystem stakeholders and merchants. The report sets out to address myths, such as that "biometric data has to be stored on a database," and that a failed biometric authentication means the transaction cannot be completed. It also runs through several other misconceptions, and acknowledges that biometric payment cards cost more than traditional contactless cards. biometricupdate.com

The $5B American Dream Mall Is The Next Step In The Evolution Of Retail

On October 25, after more than $5 billion of investment and two bankruptcies, the first stage of the American Dream mall will open. Consumers will finally get to see what $5 billion buys.

55% is allocated to entertainment and dining, and only 45% is devoted to retail. That allocation recognizes that what's driving consumers into stores isn't buying things; it's the fun and exploration they can have and what they can experience with friends.

American Dream has several entertainment features that haven't been together in a facility before. There is a Nickelodeon-themed park, which will be in the first part of the facility to open, with 25 rides and attractions, where you pay one price for the day and you can go in and out all you want. Also opening on October 25 is an NHL-sized ice rink that has three tiers for observation and can hold 2,400 spectators if they're one deep and 4,800 if they're two deep.

The idea here is clear: get consumers to come for non-shopping reasons and make money doing it. Then offer convenient shopping opportunities so that when visitors are in the mood, it's right at hand.

American Dream expects only half its visitors to live within 50 miles of the mall. It is expecting to be a major attraction for New York-area tourists. American Dream is in Bergen County, New Jersey. Among other things, that means blue laws, which mean it's illegal to operate most non-food retail on Sunday.

Triple Five has committed to a similar-size facility in the Miami area. It hasn't broken ground yet. forbes.com

The 'retail apocalypse' is an apparel apocalypse
Most retailers in bankruptcy, or on the brink of it, sell clothes. Maybe that's their problem.

"According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 1977 U.S. Households spent 6.2% on apparel and in 2017 that declined to 3.1% spending on apparel in U.S. Households." That is a 50% drop over four decades."

So far this year, 10 of the 16 major retail bankruptcies were filed by companies that mostly or exclusively sell apparel and/or footwear. Things are not likely to end there. In its latest analysis of CreditRiskMonitor data, Retail Dive found 28 retailers that could go bankrupt in the next year - and half sell apparel. In the worse-off list three are specialty apparel retailers. retaildive.com

Intellicheck's Age ID is Key to Underage Vaping Epidemic

The nation is in the grip of an underage vaping crisis. President Trump has called for a ban on flavored vaping products. The FDA is looking at regulatory relief and punitive actions. States and municipalities across the U.S. are struggling to deal with the underage vaping crisis at a local level. With the death toll on the rise and cases of vaping-related illnesses surging, answers to how to tackle this crisis have seemed elusive.

Many states and municipalities have focused efforts on passing Tobacco 21 legislation raising the purchasing age. The thinking is that this will prevent the sale of e-cigarettes and vaping products to young people. Others have instituted a ban on the sale of any flavored vaping products as these seem to be so attractive to young people. Some have instituted a complete ban on the sale of any vaping products.

The education community is also taking steps to try and curb underage vaping. College campuses are declaring smoke free zones. Elementary, middle and high schools are adding enforcement measures and some are installing vaping detectors in bathrooms to catch young people in the act. Some schools have removed bathroom doors and others are limiting when young people can use rest rooms during school hours.

Enforcement agencies are stepping up sting operations aimed at assuring retailers are not selling vaping products to minors. Retailers share their concern. One national retailer, Walmart, has removed all vaping products from its shelves in an effort to stop underage access.

The problem is these efforts have failed to curb underage vaping. A critical aspect of this problem is the same issue that continues to fuel underage access to alcohol. Fake IDs. Fake IDs are so sophisticated that even the most seasoned enforcement officers and retailers aren't able to catch the high-tech fakes with traditional methods. The answer? Age ID.

Age ID authenticates IDs and verifies age information in real-time with proven 99.9 percent accuracy. The budget friendly SaaS technology solution is easy to adopt and use and is readily deployed on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets and can also be easily integrated with point-of-sale systems.

Cross-border Cybercrime
Interpol aims to set up international cybercrime database. Interpol this week soft-launched a secure technology platform to help authorities in the agency's 194 member countries share sensitive information about cases and training and potentially collaborate on investigations. In the future, Interpol plans to include a chat function and ways to share files.

The platform, which is encrypted and hosted on a secure cloud managed by Interpol, is separate from the agency's plans to create a cybercrime database. The international police agency wants to aggregate cybercrime data from national authorities and share it with other investigators, who might be able to draw connections between hacking methods or large criminal groups. cybersecurity.cmail20.com

5 things security executives need to know about insider threat
Screen Pre-hires - Limit New Hires - Warning Signs - Ongoing Evaluation - Intervene Early
According to the 2018 Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study, CISOs' top challenges remain "budget, talent and increasing cyber threats," and to some, insider threat doesn't even make the list of top-ten priorities.

Considering what's at stake - and our 21st-century ability to see signs of, and ultimately prevent, insider threat - this is a phenomenon security executives can no longer afford to ignore. Specifically, leaders need to know these five things about insider threat:

1. Don't underestimate the business threats that stem from within - according to Verizon's 2019 Data Breach Investigation Report, more than one third of breaches that took place during November 2017-October 2018 involved internal actors.

2. Disengaged employees are usually grown, not hired - Companies know that with every new hire, they naturally run the risk of making a bad hire every once in a while. That's why many already conduct pre-hire background checks, and why some even instate "new-hire" periods where employees aren't yet entitled to certain benefits or granted access to confidential information.

These steps aren't enough. As time goes on, events arise in an employee's personal life that can impact their performance and behavior in the workplace. Stress can drive otherwise ethical employees toward contemplating putting the company at risk for their own financial gain - i.e., stealing office supplies, stealing intellectual property, lying on reimbursement forms, etc.

3. Disengaged employees exhibit warning signs - The good news is that insider threats like these are often precluded by observable patterns of behavior that usually boil down to one thing: stress.

Gallup, stressed and disengaged employees are 37% more likely to take time off from work, and the companies they work for are 18% less productive and 15% less profitable. Or, in more extreme cases, stress might manifest verbally in conversations with clients and coworkers; physically; or in an employee concocting some sort of malicious plan.

4. Continuous evaluation enables leaders to compliantly see employee risk indicators - Continuous evaluation solutions alert business leaders to employees exhibiting these early warning signs. In addition to what a background check would typically screen for - criminal activity, chiefly - continuous evaluation solutions can be customized to also screen for other factors of interest: workplace violence, customer service reviews, suspicious financial or internet search activity, etc.

They may also allow for anonymous reporting, so that if individuals witness concerning behavior firsthand, they have an opportunity to relay that information without fear of repercussion from the individual. This ability is especially crucial for workplace sexual assault or harassment cases.

All this must be done compliantly. That's why employee consent can be included in the onboarding process, and why some continuous evaluation solutions feature an automated review process that ensures a standardized workflow for verification and investigation by HR, Legal, Security and Compliance. And, with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) in mind, they also include employee privacy protections and legal guardrails to ensure a fair and equitable process that eliminates bias and favoritism.

5. Early and ongoing discovery enables leaders to intervene before behaviors escalate - Warning signs should never be ignored. Acting sooner rather than later gives security executives the ability to work with other members of the leadership team or HR to prevent an employee's problem from escalating.

Clearly, companies have a lot to lose by overlooking insider threat, something security leaders now have the ability to quickly identify and mitigate. Aside from being something they should do, leveraging early and ongoing evaluation to see and prevent insider threat is something security executives must do, for the business, its employees and the people it serves. helpnetsecurity.com

Researchers may have found a way to trace serial IP hijackers
It's estimated that in 2017 alone, routing incidents such as IP hijacks affected more than 10 percent of all the world's routing domains. What if we could predict these incidents in advance by tracing things back to the hijackers themselves?

That's the idea behind a new machine-learning system developed by researchers at MIT and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD).

The nature of nearby networks

IP hijackers exploit a key shortcoming in the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), a routing mechanism that essentially allows different parts of the internet to talk to each other. Through BGP, networks exchange routing information so that data packets find their way to the correct destination.

"It's like a game of Telephone, where you know who your nearest neighbor is, but you don't know the neighbors five or 10 nodes away," says Testart. helpnetsecurity.com

The Consequence of Mobile Convenience
Mobile Holiday Shopping Will Attrack 'Record' Number of Cybercriminals

The stage is set ready for a record-setting mobile shopping holiday season with Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the run-up to Christmas. The global mobile-payment market is expected to reach $10.07 trillion by 2026, according to market-research firm Reports and Data. Accompanying that rise in mobile payments is also mobile biometrics that is projected to be used to authenticate 2 trillion sales by 2023, according to Juniper Research. However, the increase of mobile shopping during the holidays has led to a record number of cybercriminals committing fraud.

As mobile shopping adoption continues this upward trend, more purchases will take place on mobile than on desktop, making the pocket device more attractive to attack. In fact, researchers at NuData Security found that this last August, out of all the mobile traffic, 49% was fraudulent.

To differentiate holiday shoppers from holiday fraudsters, some major eCommerce companies are using passive biometrics and behavioural analytics - technologies that monitor hundreds of online identifiers like how hard a person hits the keys on the keyboard, how they swipe from page to page or how they hold their device - to create the profile of a legitimate customer. With these technologies, companies detect suspicious behaviour on new accounts. paymentsjournal.com

Toronto, ON: Six face 63 charges in C$7 million cargo crime spree
Six men face 63 charges in connection with a series of cargo crimes near Toronto, including the hijacking of a truckload of nearly C$7 million of cell phones and tablets and the theft of three commercial vehicles. The crimes appeared to have been unusually well-planned and brutal, even as Canada contends with an uptick in cargo theft. Investigators suspect that the six men may have been involved in crimes going back to 2018, and have connections in eastern and western Canada. While the value of the electronics shipment was large, Mooken said the security guard and truck driver from the incidents bore the brunt of the crimes. freightwaves.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Killeen, TX: Man returns to 7-Eleven in an effort to prove his innocence, 11 years after being convicted of Aggravated Robbery
George Powell spent the past 11 years behind bars after he was convicted of robbing a 7-Eleven, until a Texas court said he deserved a new trial. On Monday, he walked through the doors of the convenience store looking to prove his innocence. The crux of the case hung on surveillance footage. An expert in the trial said that the man in the video was over 6 feet tall, which is around Powell's height. But new forensic specialists are saying that the suspect is much shorter. "I walked in. I walked out. I was watching the doors, and then I got to stand in the doorway, and I got to look over and saw that the height sticker. The top one is like way down here," said Powell, gesturing to below his eye. Powell's case garnered national attention after Netflix released a documentary highlighting shortfalls in forensic science. kxxv.com

A lot of articles talk about "How to impress your boss" and give you tips on how to accomplish this. But at the end of the day, it's all about supporting them, helping them reach their objectives and not trying to merely impress them. Impressing a person is great, but usually short lived. Supporting and helping them reach their goals requires a long-term effort that at times can truly test your resolve and stamina.

The thought has always been if your boss gets promoted, then you might as well -- as long as you are the one helping them get ahead.
