These include three TSA security officers, a school security
officer, two New York City security officers including one working at a Broadway
theater and a special police officer.
Security officers often work with the
public and in large venues, which makes them more susceptible to contracting the
virus. Officers should consider using a protective mask, and gloves when working
with large crowds such as concerts, sporting events and conferences.
Is the Criminal Justice System Ready for a Major Outbreak?
- Police departments across the country
preparing to isolate their own officers
- Response to non-violent crimes like shoplifting delayed or halted completely
- Courthouses have postponed trials
As the coronavirus spreads across the country, the nation’s criminal justice
system could become a casualty. Law enforcement officials say the public should
be prepared for interruptions to two basic functions: quick responses to all
911 calls, and the right to a speedy trial.
With little experience in managing a pandemic of this magnitude, some
courthouses and police departments have been scrambling in recent days to ensure
they can avoid a breakdown in public safety if the outbreak significantly widens
in the United States. But many are doing so in a piecemeal fashion, without
significant guidance or widespread agreement on what to prioritize and how to
Departments were making plans this week to quarantine their own officers if
needed and deciding how to “triage” essential safety functions, even as
judges began to clear their courtrooms, postpone trials and restrict people who
might be at risk of infection.
Police officers and others who work in law enforcement and public safety face
special challenges: They have extensive contact with the public, including
people who call 911 for health emergencies, and are some of the least able to
stay isolated if they are at risk of infecting others. A major outbreak could
test the ability of law enforcement to maintain public order in ways never seen
The contingency plans at many police departments include reallocating staff,
deploying trainees and retirees and curtailing some service calls. To focus on
critical needs, officials say they might have to respond to fewer minor car
accidents, pull resource officers out of schools or delay responding to
nonviolent crimes such as shoplifting and vandalism.
“You will see all-hands-on-deck moments, where you are canceling vacations and
taking detectives out of burglary and property crimes, for example, and
putting them back on the street,” said Robert Davis, a former police chief in
San Jose, Calif., who is now a senior vice president at a prominent security
risk management consulting firm.
Lansing, MI: Police temporarily halt 'physical response' to most property crimes
The Lansing Police Department is curbing its response to several types of
non-violent crime in the city amid ongoing efforts to stop the spread of the
Until further notice, police officers in Lansing will no longer physically
respond to any reports of larceny, malicious destruction of property or
shoplifting where a suspect cannot be readily identified and where the value is
under $1,000, attempted breaking and entering of unoccupied buildings like
garages, identity theft where the victim wasn’t financially harmed, harassing
communications, lost property and fraud when the venue of the crime is outside
of city limits.
San Francisco, CA: Public defender urges police halt arrests in non-violent
Citing the need to undercut the spread of coronavirus, San Francisco’s public
defender has called on police to stop issuing citations or arresting people for
crimes as serious as non-violent felonies. Public Defender Manohar Raju sent a
letter to Police Chief Bill Scott on Wednesday urging him to help ensure that
“detained persons are not inadvertently being exposed to a life-threatening
“As we all follow recommendations to avoid congregating and preserving more
personal distance than usual,” Raju wrote, “We must be especially mindful to
reduce criminal legal system contact to the greatest extent possible, while also
upholding the duty to protect public safety.”
Raju asked Scott to command his officers to “reduce all unnecessary contact
with the community.”

How to Revive Malls After the Coronavirus Lifts
The coronavirus has cast a pall over malls, adding insult to injury for many of
the nation’s malls already under siege. Americans are already steering clear of
malls, according to a recent survey among 2,000 adult Americans conducted
February 25-26, 2020 by
“U.S. consumers are already becoming cautious-and if the situation worsens (or
even the perception of the situation), U.S. consumers could dramatically
change habits to reduce the risk of infection, and this could hit retailers hard,”
they report, adding that some 28 percent of those surveyed said they are already
steering clear of public places, like shopping centers, entertainment venues or
changing travel plans.
Further, 58 percent said they will avoid public areas or travel if the
outbreak worsens in the U.S., with about one-fifth as of now uncertain what
they will do if it becomes more of a threat. Frankly, those undecideds may have
no choice depending upon the measures enacted by public health officials.
Digging deeper into consumers’ expectations of how their behavior will change,
shopping centers and malls are the first place they will avoid (75 percent),
followed by public transportation (73 percent) and international travel (68
Econovirus: An Ironic Opportunity
Econovirus opportunity: and I’m not talking about investing in opportunistic
products like toilet paper, hand sanitizers and bleach. I’m not talking about an
ironic opportunistic way to avoid what I believe will be a severe global
recession. I’m talking about an ironic opportunity that an economic collapse can
provide retailers if they have the fortitude to take advantage of it.
It’s an opportunity to reboot the entire competitive pricing structure of the
industry, back to the day when discounting was used infrequently only to get rid
of excess inventory, as a weapon of choice vs. the strategic weapon of necessity
it has become. In other words, back in the day when one could make money.
Apple Store employees told not to offer Apple Watch or AirPods try-ons
due to coronavirus concerns
It was first reported that Apple is beginning to
limit the number of customers allowed in its retail stores at a time. Those
who visit the stores are being asked not to hang around, and employees are
instructed to maintain distance from each other whenever possible. The changes
to Apple's policies for its stores are attempts to further protect its employees
and customers from the spread of coronavirus.
Business Insider is reporting that Apple is taking another measure to
protect employees and customers from the virus - Apple Stores are now being
instructed to limit Apple Watch and AirPods try-ons. According to sources
familiar to the matter, employees are no longer allowed to encourage customers
to try on one of the devices, but customers are still allowed to if they

What 5 retail industry leaders are saying about coronavirus
Former TRU suppliers allege execs, directors took millions as retailer crumbled
In July 2016, Josh Bekenstein, co-chairman of Bain Capital, tapped then-Toys R
Us CEO Dave Brandon for a favor. Bekenstein asked Brandon, a former fast-food
mogul from his days as head of Dominos, to call the founder of Jimmy John's,
whom Bain was courting for a possible investment.
Brandon responded, "I've done this for you guys 100 times! I'm happy to reach
out to him."
That is according to a lawsuit filed in New York court by a trust representing
more than 100 former Toys R Us creditors, most of them suppliers. In a scathing
complaint, attorneys alleged that the toy retailer's former executives and
private equity owners — who they say had deep relationships with each other —
bilked Toys R Us of cash ahead of its disastrous bankruptcy and then pursued an
expensive plan to revamp the retailer in Chapter 11. A plan which failed and
left Toys R Us suppliers with hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid claims.

Walmart truck driver recognized for safety
Nelson ain’t got nothing on James Luckett, a driver for the Brookhaven Walmart
Distribution Center who has logged more than 4 million miles without a scratch.
And with a $10,000 check presented to him Wednesday by his appreciative bosses,
Luckett is on the road again.
Luckett, who lives in Jackson, is one of only 11
drivers nationwide who can say they have 4 million safe miles under their belt.
Of those drivers, only eight are currently active, and he is the first in the
According to Luckett, the key to safe driving on a long trip mostly comes down
to maintaining focus. “Stay focused and be aware,” Luckett said. “You’ve got to
have a good attitude. That will keep you focused.”
Walmart's Vice President of Transportation Bryan Most said at a party honoring
the driver that Luckett was a consistent reminder in the company that safety is
possible. “No matter the changes, one thing has been consistent,” he said.
“Luckett drives safely. So we appreciate you for that, sir.”

Premier Retail & Hospitality Cybersecurity Event Accepting Speaker Submissions
2020 RH-ISAC Cyber Intelligence Summit Opens
Call for Speakers
The Retail & Hospitality
Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC) today announced that the
speakers is now open for its
2020 RH-ISAC Cyber
Intelligence Summit taking place September 15-16, 2020, at the Lansdowne
Report & Spa.
The 2020 RH-ISAC Summit is a two-day event that brings together more than 300
top cybersecurity leaders and teams representing the most prominent
organizations in retail, hospitality, and consumer-facing organizations from
throughout North America and abroad. The RH-ISAC Summit features a member-driven
agenda with sessions delivered by industry-leading thought leaders, experts from
the solution provider community, and exceptional networking opportunities.
The RH-ISAC is calling on all interested parties to submit a presentation for
consideration on this year’s agenda. Topics may cover a wide range of subject
matter, including best practice discussions, current threats or cybersecurity
challenges, game-changing technologies, or other top-of-mind issues for

RH-ISAC Member and Board of Directors Spotlight:
Colin Anderson, Global CISO, Levi Strauss & Co.
Colin Anderson, global CISO at Levi Strauss & Co., has been with the Retail &
Hospitality ISAC since the beginning in 2014, when he and a small group of
retail and hospitality organizations came together to develop an intelligence
sharing community. As the current RH-ISAC Board Chair, and an IT executive with
more than 25 years’ experience, he is in a unique position to reflect on the
progress RH-ISAC has made over the past six years. His mantra “a rising tide
lifts all boats” was adopted by RH-ISAC and is now the RH-ISAC’s slogan as we
work together with our members to strengthen and better protect retail and
RH-ISAC: You’ve been a part of this organization since the very beginning.
What are you most proud of in its five years since that first meeting in
I’m most proud of how consumer-facing retail and hospitality companies across
North America have come together to help one another, to collaborate, and to
provide cybersecurity thought leadership for our industries. In 2014, when a
small group of us from retail and hospitality came together with the idea that
we could join forces, I did not imagine how successful we would grow to be in
just six years. It’s hard for me to believe that what started with 30
organizations has now, at the end 2019, grown to be 155 member organizations –
all sharing not only the threat information that they are seeing but their
cybersecurity journey, as well, so others can learn, grow, and continue to
mature. I am truly proud of what we have built and the tremendous impact we have
had for companies both large and small.

RSA 2020 Conference Recap: Unpacking the Human Element
New Report Shows Breach Costs Continuing to Grow
The costs associated with data breaches
climb alongside the amount of data managed
Organizations are, on average, managing nearly 40% more data than one year
ago. And 80% see that data having value. Unfortunately, 81% don't think
their cybersecurity is up to future challenges. These are just some of the
conclusions in the Global Data Protection Index 2020 Snapshot released today by
In 2019, the average organization was keeping track of 13.53 petabytes (PB) of
data, an 831% increase from the 1.45PB they were managing in 2016. And the
cost of security failures is increasing as the data size goes up.
According to the report, both the average cost of the downtime associated with a
breach, and the cost of the breach itself, went up in 2019. The average cost of
downtime went up by 54% from 2018 to 2019, with the estimated total cost hitting
$810,018 in 2019, up from $526,845 in 2018. For data loss, the total also
increased, from $995,613 in 2018 to $1,013,075 in 2019. In an interesting note,
both costs were higher for organizations with multiple data protection
vendors than for those depending on a single source for protection.

How the coronavirus is affecting online retailers
In the short-term, retailers that sell supplies like toilet paper, face
masks and water bottles are having significant sales gains due to the
coronavirus. Long-term, however, retailers are concerned the coronavirus will
negatively impact their 2020 revenue.
Adobe Summit &

South by Southwest, are postponed or canceled. Many retailers are having
online sales spikes in flu-related products, such as cleaning supplies and
health products. However, the long-term impact for the coronavirus is not yet
known, and many retailers are lowering their sales forecasts for the year.
Retailers that manufacture or supply their goods from China are unsure of how
this will impact their supply chain, or how this will impact demand for their
47% of retailers expect some downside in revenue due to the coronavirus,
according to a survey conducted in March 2020 of 304 retailers by Digital
Commerce 360. 33% of retailers say it’s too early to tell. However, a majority
of retailers, 58%, say the virus will impact consumer confidence, and 22% say
there will be a significant impact. Consumer confidence is often used as a
measure of how consumers feel about the economy.
An influx of sales for health products
Online sales have increased 52% in early March compared with the same
time frame a year ago, and the number of online shoppers has increased 8.8%
since the coronavirus began, according to SaaS platform provider Quantum Metric.
The firm analyzed 5.5 billion anonymous and aggregated online and mobile visits
to retailer websites from U.S. consumers.
The coronavirus’ impact on retail
Not all retailers, however, have had sales gains because of the wealth of
problems associated with COVID-19, such as supply chain issues and potentially
fewer shoppers in stores who do not want to risk exposure. For example,
there is a large impact on imports at major U.S. retail container ports due to
factory shutdowns and travel restrictions in China that affect production and
fulfillment, according to the Global Port Tracker report released this week by
the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates.

On Wednesday, Clorox confirmed that as stores of its cleaning products dry up
online, it has pulled back on advertising—an example of how the COVID-19
pandemic can create ripple effects throughout retail, advertising and beyond.
Clorox also is contending with third-party sellers taking its products and
selling them for exorbitant prices, part of a gouging spree that has played
out online and in stores ever since consumers began hoarding products like
disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, food and other goods.
“We have currently shut down all ad-display activity on most of our
disinfecting products on Amazon,” a Clorox spokesman said in an email statement

Fremont, CA: $1,5M Fencing Operation busted in the Bay Area yields thousands of
stolen laptops, phones
Fencing February: Bay Area authorities announced Thursday afternoon the takedown
of multiple illegal fencing operations, resulting in the recovery of about
2,200 electronic devices worth more than $1.5 million, many of which police
say were likely stolen from people’s cars over the past several months.
Officials from the Fremont Police Department and Santa Clara County District
Attorney’s Office also said police took nearly $250,000 in cash along with
several high-end cars as evidence in some of the cases against 11 suspects
authorities have charged in connection with rings that sell stolen electronics
to overseas buyers.
The cars, including a 2019 Mercedes G43 AMG, and a 2013 Porsche Panamera, were
believed to be purchased with profits from stolen cellphones, laptops, and other
electronics taken in the kind of smash-and-grab auto burglaries that have been a
plague on Bay Area residents and visitors for several years, police said. “Make
no mistake about it, what you’re looking at here is organized crime,” Santa
Clara County Supervising Deputy District Attorney Marisa McKeown said Thursday.

Lexington, SC: Serial Shoplifter Sentenced to 8 Years
Martinez Woodbury, 46, was sentenced Wednesday in Lexington County to 8 years in
the South Carolina Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to
Shoplifting for the eighth time. The sentence was handed down by Judge William
P. Keesley. On March 26, 2019, Woodbury stole approximately $500 worth of
electronic merchandise from the Target in Lexington. Woodbury used a boxcutter
to remove security devices from the merchandise and concealed the items under
his shirt and pants. The loss prevention officer recognized him by sight from
previous encounters and Woodbury was quickly apprehended by Lexington Police
after exiting the store. Woodbury's prior record includes seven shoplifting
convictions from 2009 through 2018, as well as numerous other property crimes.
Woodbury is being transported to the Department of Corrections to begin
immediate service of his sentence.

South Euclid, OH: Walmart greeter is greeted with assault; 17 year old charged
Officers responded to Walmart March 4 for a report of a boy, 17, who had
assaulted a store greeter and then fled on foot. The boy was located in the area
and admitted to the assault of the 54-year-old man. He said the man asked him
and his mother to see his receipt when they were leaving. It was discovered that
not all their groceries were scanned, so they returned to the store and made
payment. When they left, the mother went to a fast food restaurant and the boy
told her he would walk to a friend’s house. Instead, he returned to the store
and punched the man twice in the back of the head.

unrelated case of a stolen Frito Lay truck that was recovered at his home and a
shoplifting case out on North Charleston. On Wednesday, deputies responded to
the Circle K gas station on Folly Road in reference to that stolen Frito-Lay
truck. The driver of that truck told authorities he was inside stocking the

company was able to use GPS tracking to locate the vehicle at a home on Yorktown
Drive. Hooper was found in the driver’s seat along with a female passenger when

Owning your mistakes is a critical element of self development. For without
ownership how can anyone truly grow and change. Having the courage to face it
and admit it and discuss it leads to respect and a sense of trust from those
around you. To deny or to ignore merely feeds a lack of confidence not just from
the group around you but also in yourself as well. Because at 2 am there is no
denial and once revealed it stays with you.
