Price-Gouging - Fraud Running Rampant
Across the Country
Here's just one of many articles:
Officials team up to combat secondary outbreak of fraud, price-gouging amid
The Pittsburgh region’s top state and federal law enforcement authorities
announced Thursday they are teaming up to form the Western Pennsylvania
Covid-19 Fraud Task Force to investigate and prosecute those committing
fraud during the coronavirus outbreak.
The move comes two days after both
Brady and Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro separately announced
measures they were taking to halt fraud in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
As of Thursday morning, Shapiro’s office has received 1,548 emails and 52
filed consumer complaints for 1,600 total, according to a spokesman for
The office has also issued 52 cease-and-desist letters statewide,
according to the spokesman, who said the office wouldn’t name the businesses or
provide copies of the letters.
AP’s survey is the most comprehensive look so far at the emerging problem.
The survey of state attorneys general or consumer protection agencies across the
country found the number exceeded 5,000, with hundreds more coming in every
In all, 40 states responded with numbers that included both tips and formally
filed complaints against everything from individuals and mom-and-pop
stores to big-box retailers. The count is certainly low because it only
includes cases in which someone went online or called to register a grievance.
Many others merely went to the court of social media to vent their outrage.
New York City , which alone has received more than 1,000 complaints, issued
550 violations and imposed $275,000 in fines for gouging.
Authorities in states including Florida were forwarding to the nation’s online
retail giants — including Amazon, Walmart and eBay — reports that third-party
sellers on their sites were overcharging.
On Wednesday, a bipartisan group of House lawmakers urged the Justice
Department — which has so far focused on false claims rather than high
prices — to police price-gouging so that people “have access to the items
they need to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”

NYC Mayor De Blasio pleads with Trump for military aid
Bill de Blasio made an urgent plea for military aid to combat the coronavirus,
as the number of confirmed cases in New York City surged to 3,615 on Thursday
and the city increasingly becomes the epicenter of the crisis in the U.S.
The city's death toll from the virus has risen to 22, doubling in the past day.
The total number of cases nearly doubled as well, for the second straight day.
De Blasio called the numbers “nothing short of staggering" and pressed President
Donald Trump to mobilize the military to deliver crucial supplies — which the
city could run out of in two to three weeks — and provide medical care.
The city is now moving to release some inmates from Rikers Island
starting as soon as Thursday, after the first inmate and correction officers at
city jails tested positive for the coronavirus.

companies use to pay back their creditors, but all bets are off when consumers

Asset-Based Loans Asset-based loans that use inventory as collateral are

Little Point - When a retailer gets into trouble, lenders can declare a
loan in default and press for a liquidation that will pay them out. But there’s
little point if no one is shopping. Already, some states like New Jersey have
moved to close down malls and other non-essential shopping spots.

New Juvenile Gangs Popping Up
Tucson Police Report Rise of ‘Hybrid Gangs’
Tucson police and prosecutors are working to fight the growth of a new type
of gang that uses social media and the promise of money to attract young
members to a life of crime,
reports the Arizona Daily Star. The police Gang Investigative Unit calls the
groups “hybrid gangs,” saying they emerged two years ago, lacking
traditional gang identifiers like claiming a specific area of the city, or
having a common race or ethnicity. Hybrid gangs are characterized by young,
multi-ethnic, mixed-gender demographics, fluid gang affiliation and use of
social media. Members are typically between 14 and 19 years old. Police
are is aware of nine active hybrid gangs in Tucson.
Juvenile violent crime linked to gang affiliation “bloomed” in 2019, said Deputy
Pima County Attorney Caroline Allen. She said groups of youth started getting
together “and essentially creating their own gang monikers” to commit crimes
like shoplifting, armed robbery, aggravated assault, drive by shootings and
others. “All of a sudden, they’ve come up out of nowhere,” Allen said. The
FBI says, “Hybrid gangs are difficult to track, identify, and target as they are
transient and continuously evolving.” In the past, traditional gangs have
maintained boundaries around certain locations, had specific loyalty ties based
on ethnicity or culture and placed value in gang hierarchy. “They now ride
together,” said Tucson Police Sgt. David Contreras. “They seem to do a lot
of criminal activity with whomever they wish and their ultimate goal is to make

Those numbers will be dwarfed over the next few months with the bump becoming a
permanent expectation even after the crisis. As the consumer becomes naturally
inclined even more so than today, to go online and hunt for the best deals.
Regardless of how the bounce back happens, once this is over, the consumer may
be changed forever. Because once you train them and acclimate them to the
obvious benefits of online shopping, brick and mortar may end up merely being an
excuse to go out as opposed to the necessity it now is. The question being, how
much market share online shopping truly ends up capturing long term? Just a
thought. -Gus Downing

Se-Kure Controls Founder
& CEO Roger Leyden Passes Away
Controls, Inc. – March 19, 2020 - It is with much sadness we announce
the passing of our founder and CEO, Roger J Leyden. This pioneer of Loss
Prevention passed away peacefully with many close friends attending to him in
his last weeks at his favorite second home of Las Vegas, NV on Tuesday night
March 17th, 2020.
In 1965, Roger defined and single-handedly created the world of anti-shoplifting
devices which has had a positive impact on retailers worldwide to this day.
Roger was a protector in life and in business. The many products he envisioned
and then built have protected Global retailers for 55 years and have literally
prevented countless millions in theft.
His legacy at Se-Kure Controls will continue for decades to come. We are proud
that our products are made in the USA and because of Roger's commitment to his
companies, his employees and the retailers we serve, we are on a solid
foundation to continue serving our customers.
Roger loved his companies and loved his employees. Everything he did focused on
Se-Kure and building a better mouse trap as well as a stronger company. Roger
made certain we would have what we need to continue what he started. He valued
people and wanted to have a work environment that encouraged long term
employment in a family atmosphere.
Roger mentored and guided Laura Greenwell for over thirty years so that when the
time came to
pass his torch, she would be ready. Laura has been operating in the
capacity of President for a few years now and it’s in her DNA to protect and
support Roger's vision as she seamlessly leads Se-Kure Controls Inc., into its
The words we choose to describe the major influences in our lives matter. The
greater the impact of friendship, leadership and spirit of adventure, the more
deserving of words like “blessing,” “gift” and exhilarating. Roger was all of
these for his employees. It was best written this morning by one of them: “…I am
very sorry for this big loss. He cared for all of us and I'm really grateful for
that. I hope we continue where he left even stronger.”
Editor's Note: Roger was one of a very small group of executives back
in the 60’s and 70’s that helped create and lead the innovative security tools
everyone takes for granted today.
His creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, sense of humor and kind heart made an
impact on hundreds of retailers and executives. And his products and innovative
approach helped in the overall industry transition from security to Loss
Prevention - something very few have been able to accomplish.
Finally, he was one of the last ones out there that had also worked with my
father in the retail security industry. He’ll be missed. -Gus Downing

COVID-19 and the new business normal
shift from a centralized defense model to a distributed and containment model in
managing a pandemic has highlighted the level of preparedness for businesses
to function in a world that is highly distributed and digitally enabled. The
physical disconnect of businesses and their stakeholders will require
adoption of new technologies in order to maintain continuity and better
future experiences for all.
We are having to rewire our brains to prioritize distribution over
centralization and the home over institutions. In this crisis, it is not the
expert, not the center that counts. It is the individual citizen, making
or keeping their own home a safe space for themselves and their family and
practicing this new art of social distancing. What that really means is
disconnecting physically from those centers while maintaining digital
connections with our loved ones, our friends and our communities, and learning
from each other via digital and social networks what we should do next. Our
strength this time is in our distribution, not in our masses. This is becoming
The role of technology post-pandemic
2020 will be the year that changed the trajectory of e-commerce, telemedicine
and remote work. We will see greater pilot programs and accelerated adoption
of autonomous delivery vehicles, digital payments, contactless payment
technology, voice and video conferencing, voice-enabled mobile business
applications, AI-powered CRM platforms, sensors, and wearable health monitoring
technology with greater internet of things (IoT) technologies aimed at automated
and autonomous serviceability capabilities, drone delivery -- medicine, food,
and product home delivery via smart drones -- and 3D printing additive
So what can we learn from our response to a pandemic? Tactically, we can learn
that for a particular type of crisis the response needs to be the exact opposite
of the norm; democratic, distributed and home-based. We know from our research
that flow-based solutions are more responsive than traditional ones. So we can
use the principles of flow to design holistic solutions for future crises.
The businesses of the future must safely create value at the speed of need.
The services must be personalized, fast and intelligent -- the new currencies of
a digital economy. To do this in an experience-led economy, businesses need
access to the single source of truth. And they also need to ensure that their
most important core value and guiding principle is Trust. So while the
coronavirus itself will change little, the seeds of change have already been
sown, and the virus will be a catalyst for a more distributed, more connected
world and greater personal autonomy, a
world of flow.

NIST Security Guidelines for Enterprise Telework, Remote Access, and Bring Your
Own Device (BYOD) Solutions
many people are teleworking (also known as telecommuting), which is the
ability of an organization's employees, contractors, business partners, vendors,
and other users to perform work from locations other than the organization's
facilities. Teleworkers use various client devices, such as desktop and
laptop computers, smartphones, and tablets, to read and send email, access
websites, review and edit documents, and perform many other tasks.
Most teleworkers use remote access, which is the ability to access their
organization's non-public computing resources from locations other than the
organization's facilities. This bulletin summarizes highlights from NIST
Special Publication 800-46 Revision 2, Guide to Enterprise Telework, Remote
Access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security, which helps organizations
protect their IT systems and information from the security risks that accompany
the use of telework and remote access technologies.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has guidelines on
telework and remote access to help organizations mitigate security risks
associated with the enterprise technologies used for teleworking, such as remote
access servers, telework client devices, and remote access communications.
NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-46 Revision 2, Guide to Enterprise Telework,
Remote Access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security was issued
in 2016, and its recommendations are still relevant today. This Information

Trade Groups Ask California to Delay Privacy Law Because of Coronavirus
Office closures and remote work make July 1 enforcement deadline
A coalition of trade associations are asking California to put off enforcement

letter to California Attorney General Xavier Becerra this week, groups
representing advertising, insurance and other industries cited pandemic-related
confusion such as office closures as the latest hurdles to meeting the state’s
July 1 target for enforcement.
Business leaders will be “forced to consider tradeoffs between decisions that
are best for their employees and the world-at-large and decisions that may help
the organizations they lead avoid costly and resource intensive enforcement
actions,” the letter said.
It asked for the state to hit pause on the California Consumer Privacy Act,
which aims to give users more control over their personal data, until Jan. 2,

New Study Calls Common Risk Figure into Question
Many risk models use a commonly quoted number -- $150 per record -- to
estimate the cost of an incident. A new study from the Cyentia Institute
says misusing that number means that estimates are almost never accurate.
The Information Risk
Insights Study (IRIS), conducted by the Cyentia Institute, is intended
to help business risk managers build better models for risk, and to use
those models to make better decision for managing cyber-risk. David Severski,
senior data scientist at Cyentia and the principal author of the IRIS report,
says that the point isn't to have more data, but to use available data more
effectively. "We're never going to have perfect information, but we can use
information that we have available to make a better decision rather than just a
finger-in-the-wind type of analysis there," he says.

Self-reflection is something many avoid or refuse to allow it to creep up and
point to exactly what you need to look at. Hidden behind rationalizations, self
reflection in actuality can be an eye opening experience. Popping up when you
least expect it but most notably late at night when you're staring at the
ceiling with no other outside interferences lending you license to deny it.
Self-reflection is the one person you should make it a point to face. It just
might make a difference tomorrow.
