Two People Who Attended RSA Cyber Security Conference Contract Coronavirus
Two cybersecurity company employees who attended an annual industry conference
last month in San Francisco have tested positive for the coronavirus. At least
one is seriously ill with respiratory issues.
One of the workers at Exabeam Inc., a data
security solutions company, is a
45-year-old engineer who began experiencing symptoms when he returned home to
Connecticut from California on Feb. 28 after attending the RSA cybersecurity
conference, his wife said in an email. His condition deteriorated the following
week and he was hospitalized in respiratory distress on March 6, she said. The
man was placed into a medically induced coma and is now on a ventilator in
“guarded condition.” The individual is predisposed for pneumonia due to an
underlying heart condition.
The second person, who is unidentified, also worked at Exabeam and attended RSA,
the Foster City, California-based company said Tuesday in a statement.

OSHA Issues Workplace Guidance for Coronavirus
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
today published “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19” to help
companies respond in the event of coronavirus in the workplace. The guidance was
developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS).
The document provides practical guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19,
also known as novel coronavirus, and contains information on safe work practices
and appropriate personal protective equipment based on the risk level of
In addition to the guidance, OSHA recently launched a

CDC Official Asks Employers to Do All They Can to Slow Coronavirus
During a webcast by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Dr. Jay C.
Butler, deputy director for infectious diseases at the CDC, spelled out the
rationale for his
agency's repeated calls for employers to consider generous
sick-leave policies, rethink large gatherings, and communicate the importance of
proper hand washing and sanitization.
To that end, Butler said the
most important thing employers can do at this time
is encourage sick employees to stay home. They must act quickly, at the first
sign of illness, because the virus appears to be most contagious in the first
days that a person is sick. "Some of your workers may want to tough it out, but
this is not a good time for that," Butler said. "It's important to communicate
as early as possible and have flexible telework options so people can minimize
their contact at the early phase."
He also reiterated the need for
routine environmental cleaning,
especially wiping down any high-touch surfaces, such as door handles, remote
controls and elevator buttons, with bleach or alcohol-based wipes. The virus can
survive on hard surfaces for minutes, hours, even days, depending on the type of
surface, temperature and humidity. Although no such cases have been confirmed to
date, Butler said "we're assuming it is possible that transmission may occur via
CDC: Americans over 60 should 'stock up' on supplies, avoid crowds
Older Americans, especially those with underlying health conditions, should
stockpile supplies and avoid unnecessary travel, a top official at the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Monday. Most Americans are likely
at risk of catching the novel strain of the coronavirus, said Nancy Messonnier,
director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.
Older Americans are especially susceptible to serious outcomes. "The reason to
stock up now is to kind of stick close to home."
McDonald's hourly workers in U.S. demand paid sick leave as virus spreads
Hourly wage workers at McDonald’s Corp on Tuesday sought paid sick leave for

The burger chain has not trained or given
any guidelines on the epidemic, McDonald's
cooks and cashiers associated with labor group Fight for $15 and a Union said in

here. The labor group asked the company to pay workers for any missed shifts
if its restaurant shuts down due to the spread of COVID-19.

U.S. Senators Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Combat Organized Retail Crime
U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced
legislation Tuesday to fight the online sale of stolen, counterfeit and
dangerous consumer products by requiring extensive transparency of large-volume
third-party sellers in online retail marketplaces.
Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers (INFORM)
Act would mandate online retail marketplaces that include third-party
sellers of consumer products to authenticate the identity of “high-volume
third-party sellers,” which will help equalize transparency among
brick-and-mortar retailers and prevent organized retail crime rings from
stealing items from these stores to resell those items in bulk online.

Nike investigates reports of forced labor in Chinese factories
Nike said it was reviewing its suppliers’ hiring practices in China, after The

One of its biggest suppliers in the world, the
South Korean-owned Qingdao Taekwang Shoes Co., was now looking for ways to end
the contracts of Uighur workers making Nikes in its factory, the American
company said in a statement posted on its website.

UK: C-stores lost $273 million in 2019 as a result of crime, research reveals
Over the last year, local shops have lost out to the tune of over £211m ($273m)
as a direct result of crime, according to an
annual crime survey by the trade body for the sector, the Association of
Convenience Stores (ACS). This is despite investment of £209m in crime
prevention measures like CCTV, cash handling systems and external security. In
practical terms, the £211m lost last year to crime equates to a 7p ‘crime tax’
on every transaction in a convenience store, the ACS says.

No Honor Among Thieves:
Hackers are targeting other hackers by infecting their tools with malware
Opens backdoor to any system or assets the
hacker has already breached
newly discovered malware campaign suggests that hackers have themselves become
the targets of other hackers, who are infecting and repackaging popular hacking
tools with malware.
Cybereason’s Amit Serper found that the attackers in this years-long campaign
are taking existing hacking tools — some of which are designed to exfiltrate
data from a database through cracks and product key generators that unlock full
versions of trial software — and injecting a powerful remote-access trojan. When
the tools are opened, the hackers gain full access to the target’s computer.
Serper said the attackers are “baiting” other hackers by posting the repackaged
tools on hacking forums.
But it’s not just a case of hackers targeting other hackers, Serper told
TechCrunch. These maliciously repackaged tools are not only opening a
backdoor to the hacker’s systems, but also any system that the hacker has
“If hackers are targeting you or your business and they are using these
trojanized tools it means that whoever is hacking the hackers will have
access to your assets as well,” Serper said.
Congress, Warning of Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities, Recommends Overhaul
A yearlong congressional study of American cyberspace strategy concludes that
the United States remains ill-prepared to deter attacks, including from Russia,
North Korea and Iran. It calls for an overhaul of how the United States manages
its offensive and defensive cyberoperations.
The report, mandated by Congress and led by a bipartisan group of lawmakers,
says the military needs far more personnel trained for cyberoperations. It also
says Congress needs to dedicate committees to cyberoperations, and the public
and private sectors need vastly improved defenses created in layers, along
with more aggressive offensive actions inside the networks of other nations.
Departing Execs Often Walk Away With Their Company's Intellectual Property
3 Tips to Stay Secure When You Lose an
Research indicates that January and February are the most popular job-hunting
months. With the annual job shuffle still hot, it's important to note that
nobody wants a bad professional breakup resulting in burned bridges, hurt
feelings, and lost — sometimes stolen — property.
By "property" we mean valuable assets such as proprietary data, confidential
information, and identity credentials. Unfortunately, that property can
be compromised — often unintentionally.
● A large percentage of departing employees — including executives — take their
company's intellectual property with them because they created it and think it's
● A significant number of enterprises don't have policies or technologies in
place to prevent loss of intellectual property (IP).
● Most IP loss from unintentional inside breaches occurs from employee ignorance
or a lack of awareness of company policy and IP law.
At the time of year when so many people are leaving their jobs to start new
ones, it's a good time to be reminded how to protect your IP. Here are three
tips, followed by a closer look at each:
1. Have maximum visibility into who has access — and how much — into your
network and systems.
2. Vigilantly enforce that access with identity governance and administration (IGA)
3. Deprovision access when situations change, especially when employees leave.
100 cases in Canada - B.C. reports first death
Canada releases coronavirus guidelines on when to cancel major events
The Public Health Agency of Canada has posted guidelines aimed at helping
event planners figure out whether to cancel mass gatherings of people as the
federal government works to quell the potential spread of the novel
coronavirus. The next best thing to stopping the virus completely is to slow it
down, public health officials have said, and try to delay widespread community
transmission as long as possible to ease the burden on the health-care system.
newly released federal guidelines urge organizers to assess risk,
highlighting factors like the ages of the attendees, given the virus hits older
populations hardest, and whether they are likely to be arriving from regions
that have been impacted by COVID-19.
They also offer ways to reduce the risk without cancelling the event
altogether, such as by limiting the number of people who attend, staggering
arrivals and departures, making more hand-washing stations available, or even
live-streaming activities online.
But they don't dictate whether certain types of events should be shut down, and
under what conditions. Rather, they're intended to help event planners,
municipalities, provinces and territories make informed decisions.

Meth supply, organized crime focus of Pan-Canadian group tackling rural crime
Rural crime ’carnage’ continues to grow,
says Alberta justice minister
syndicates believed to be behind methamphetamine-fuelled crime sprees are
the focus of a pan-Canadian working group struck to develop a national strategy
to combat rural crime, Alberta Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer says. Canada's
deputy ministers of justice and public safety, who had their first call on Feb.
27, are also looking at stiffer sentences for offenders, Schweitzer told CBC in
an interview Monday.
The group, co-chaired by Schweitzer and federal Public Safety Minister Bill
Blair, was formed after Alberta Justice forced the issue of rural crime onto the
agenda at a ministers' meeting in January and proposed a national strategy.
Criminals on a "meth-bender" go from community to community stealing more
and more property to "fuel their next hit," Schweitzer said.
Changes have included laying out plans to hire hundreds of new RCMP officers,
amendments to legislation preventing offenders from suing landowners, adding
4,000 new drug treatment beds and expanding the drug treatment court

Coronavirus Cuts Smartphone Sales 55% In China. But E-Commerce And Delivery
Businesses Are Booming
from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, a research
institute that is part of the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information
Technology, says that smartphone sales dropped 56% in February 2020
compared to data from 2019. The only conceivable rationale? Coronavirus. Or,
more specifically, the quarantines and closures related to it.
The 56% drop in February follows a 38.9% drop in January and a 14.7% drop in
December. And, truth be told, smartphone sales in China — as in the rest of
the world — have been slowing for most of a year now. The last monthly increase
was in May of 2019, and that was only 1.2% in the positive.
The overall trend is not surprising, as the smartphone market is fairly
saturated. And the big recent drops are also not surprising: public life in
China has largely shut down in response to the coronavirus panic.
One thing that is up? Use of those mobile phones and other technology that
people do already have to engage in the virtual economy. The economy is very
real, of course, but it’s all transacted digitally.
“Right now we have seen some very specific industries are thriving,” Ren told
me. “For example deliveries, e-commerce, these kind of food delivery services
are really thriving because [we have] millions of restaurants open for
business, but they are not able to let the customer to walk in and dine in. So
the only option left is delivery.”
Salesforce: E-commerce traffic surges in Q4
A sharp increase in e-commerce during Q4 2019 led to other positive outcomes for
digital retailers. According to analysis from Salesforce, on a year-over-year
basis, traffic to e-commerce sites grew 13% in Q4 2019. In addition, digital
commerce rose 14% while shopper spend increased 1%.

The extent of his injuries was not immediately clear. The voice of what sounds
like a young girl then chimed in: “The little boy stole a pizza and they shot
him in his back.” The woman then explained that she was at a Sheetz convenience
store when “we seen the little boy just running, with a pizza, all of a sudden I
see a cop pull his gun out … then next thing you know you heard gunshots.”
Mishawaka, IN: Taco Bell customer shot companion and worker in fight over
A Taco Bell customer is accused of shooting an employee after finding out the
restaurant wasn’t serving breakfast. The same bullet also hit his companion,
police say. Nicholas Gay, 29, and three others went to Taco Bell and put in an
order at the drive-thru window on Friday. They pulled into a parking spot after
learning the order was “messed up,” and Gay went inside the restaurant with
another man, police said. The companion asked for a refund because Taco Bell
wouldn’t serve him breakfast after 11 a.m. They began calling the employees
names and harassing them, and another worker told them to leave, police said.
Surveillance video shows Gay walk to the door as if he’s going to leave, then
turn toward the employee and pull a gun from his pocket before shooting the man.
The bullet went through the employee’s torso and hit Gay’s companion in the arm,
police said. Gay and the other man fled the store. The employee who was shot
underwent surgery at a nearby hospital. Gay was charged with attempted murder,
battery with a deadly weapon, battery resulting in serious bodily injury and
unlawful possession of a firearm by a violent felon.

the U.S. government from the Western Union Company to over 109,000 victims
located in the United States and abroad. These victims, many of whom were
elderly victims of consumer fraud and abuse, will be recovering the full amount
of their losses.
“The $153 million distribution announced today brings some measure of justice
for the elderly and other victims who were financially harmed by the fraudulent
schemes in this case,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of
the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. U.S. Attorney David J. Freed said,
“Working together with MLARS and the skilled and dedicated investigators of the
Postal Inspection Service, we have achieved outstanding results – bringing
fraudsters to justice and holding businesses such as Western Union accountable”.
In addition to increased fraud detection and protections, an integral part of
that accountability involves Western Union making victims whole. $153 Million is
a good start.”

Having a strategy or a plan about everything you do is important if you expect
to win long term. Daily victories are nothing without a long-term plan. They
fade quickly and leave the audience expecting more, which only a plan and
strategy will satisfy. So after your next victory, ask yourself what am I going
to do next?
