NEW: eBay's Former CEO Denies Any Link to Cyberstalking
But Did Want to Create a Competitor to Challenge Her

Devin Wenig says he had "no knowledge, no private understanding, no tacit approval" of the harassment campaign.

Former eBay CEO Devin Wenig, who led the company at the time, tells Recode that he was shocked to hear details of the campaign this week and that he gave "no direction" nor "tacit approval" for it.

But the former eBay chief executive was at times so frustrated with coverage from the news website in question that he on several occasions floated the idea internally that eBay should create its own competitor publication, multiple former eBay insiders told Recode.

"On Monday, I read the charges along with everyone else, and was shocked and outraged," Wenig told Recode in a statement. "It is important for me to reiterate, and an independent investigation confirmed, that I had nothing to do with and no knowledge of the activities alleged to have occurred. There was no direction, no knowledge, no private understanding, no tacit approval. Ever."

Still, the fact that eBay's security team allegedly felt comfortable executing such a campaign against the blogger and her husband suggests that the leadership team had, at best, problematic blind spots.

In court documents, copies of text messages showed Wenig twice instructing his communications chief, Steve Wymer, to "take her down," referring to the EcommerceBytes owner and writer Ina Steiner. On Thursday, Wenig told Recode in a statement that those texts "have been wildly misinterpreted and taken completely out of context in some media reports."

Wymer also sent text messages with an aggressive tone such as: "We are going to crush this lady."

Court documents also include an exchange between Wymer and the security chief Baugh in which Baugh references an unspecified "Plan B" in relation to the EcommerceBytes couple. Wymer expressed a willingness to manage any fallout internally, but the messages do not indicate that Wymer had any knowledge of what the "Plan B" entailed.

Neither Wymer nor Wenig has been charged, and authorities did not name them in the affidavit; instead, the two were simply referred to as Executive 1 and Executive 2.

eBay Clarifying Update on Federal Charges
eBay's Two Efforts - Separate & Independent
Asset Protection & Global Security

Given the recent events and regretful actions on the part of the Global Security team it's important to note that Asset Protection is a separate team and function at eBay.

With their Asset Protection team reporting into the legal arm and absolutely committed to the professional standards and ethics that we associate with any other well grounded and focused function and team.

Having worked with the team directly now for a number of years we at the Daily can attest to their professionalism, as can a number of colleagues who attend the Asset Protection's team annual collaborative conferences.

eBay Response: Global Security Team Fed. Charges
eBay's Corporate Communications Team - Additional Points

In an email to the Daily, eBay's communications team wanted to add a few points the industry should be aware of and hear officially:

• This was an aberrational incident involving unacceptable conduct by former employees.

• In addition to terminating those responsible, since learning of these events, eBay has worked to rebuild the GSR team, including appointing an experienced and well-regarded new leader in that area.

• eBay is confident that his leadership will ensure that the GSR team will fulfill its important responsibilities while acting at all times with integrity and consistent with eBay's Cultural Values and Code of Business Conduct & Ethics.

• eBay holds its employees to the highest standards of conduct and ethics and will continue to take appropriate actions to ensure these standards are followed by all employees.

Allied Universal Guard Charged
In $660K Worth Of Rental Cars Stolen

Two charged in theft of 28 rental cars at BWI Airport

A man and woman were arrested Monday and charged with stealing at least 28 rental cars from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport over six weeks in 2019.

Police said Shakierra Scott used her position as a security officer with Allied Universal Security Services, a company contracted by rental car companies at BWI, to allow Travis Scott to drive the rental cars from the secure facility without a contract. They then sold the rental cars, police said.

Transportation Authority Police, which has jurisdiction at the airport in Linthicum, said they conducted a lengthy investigation into the thefts from the BWI rental car facility in Hanover between May and July 2019. The vehicles had a combined value of more than $660,000.

Shakierra Scott was initially arrested in late July by the MDTA Police Special Operations Division and charged with stealing a single vehicle. Prosecutors opted not to take those charges to trial in September.

Both Scotts are being held without bail in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on Jennifer Road. Neither has an attorney listed for them in court records.

Mass Data Theft - The Big COVID Consequence
Mass Layoffs Risk Exodus Of Corporate Data, Experts Warn

The suspension of office work followed by mass layoffs were devastating consequences of the COVID 19 virus once it took hold in the United States in February. Mass data theft may be the next.

As corporations across industries rush to trim their payrolls and stay afloat financially, they are inviting data loss on a large scale, as millions of departing workers take sensitive company files and other data with them on the way out the door, experts warn.

A Spike in Data Exfiltration

Many of those departing employees will not leave empty handed, experts warn. "We've seen an enormous spike in exfiltrated data," said Joe Payne of the firm Code 42.

"The first thing we noted as COVID hit was a surge in VPN activity," That has meant a loss of visibility.

Some Are "Too Far Gone To Be Saved"
Coronavirus Driven Tidal Wave of Bankruptcies Is Coming

Experts foresee so many filings in the coming months that the courts could struggle to salvage the businesses that are worth saving.

Already, companies large and small are succumbing to the effects of the coronavirus.

Edward I. Altman, the creator of the Z score, a widely used method of predicting business failures, estimated that this year will easily set a record for so-called mega bankruptcies - filings by companies with $1 billion or more in debt. And he expects the number of merely large bankruptcies - at least $100 million - to challenge the record set the year after the 2008 economic crisis.

Even a meaningful rebound in economic activity over the coming months won't stop it, said Mr. Altman, the Max L. Heine professor of finance, emeritus, at New York University's Stern School of Business. "The really hurting companies are too far gone to be saved," he said.

The flood of petitions from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression could swamp the system, making it harder to save the companies that can be rescued, bankruptcy experts said.

Protests/Riots Update

Seattle: Shooting reported in Seattle's 'CHOP' zone for second straight night
At least one person was shot on Sunday night inside Seattle's autonomous protest zone, where demonstrators have settled during the civil unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers.

The "CHOP zone" refers to the so-called Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone, which was originally created as a space for nonviolent demonstration but has descended into violence for a second straight night.

On Saturday, a 19-year-old man was killed after a shooting took place inside the zone.

The Race to Reform Police
19 States race to reform police practices in wake of George Floyd's death

Legislatures in 19 states and the District of Columbia have introduced more than 160 bills in the three and a half weeks since the killing of George Floyd.

Many of the bills up for debate are broad efforts to overhaul police department procedures to hold officers to greater account. Others are more narrowly targeted, banning chokeholds or the use of tear gas and rubber bullets during protests. Still more implement new training regimes meant to cut down on the number of police interactions that end violently.

Legislators in Minnesota have introduced 53 different measures, including bills to ban so-called warrior-style training and weapons.

California Ahead of #8CANTWAIT Police Reforms

In the past week, Campaign Zero's "#8CANTWAIT" was launched in response to George Floyd's killing and the outcry for police reforms that followed. The campaign is a push for eight police use-of-force reform measures and a database that tracks how these eight policies, meant to curtail police violence, are employed in major cities. Campaign Zero and its advocates have urged and challenged state and local political and law enforcement leaders to implement these eight policies.

According to the Campaign Zero website, the fundamental basis for the #8CANTWAIT reforms is a large correlational study of the relationship between cities' demographic characteristics, their use of force policies and their level of police killings of civilians. The results, the group claims, are very clear: Adopting these policies is statistically associated with a lower level of police killings, whether judged per person or per arrest.

The eight policies are:

1. Require "de-escalation"

2. Require a warning by officers before shooting

3. Require officers to intervene when excessive force is being used

4. Require comprehensive use of force reporting

5. Ban chokeholds and strangleholds

6. Ban shooting at moving vehicles

7. Establish and require "use of force continuum"

8. Require that all alternatives be exhausted before shooting

NYPD Detective Union President: Bail Reform Not Working

Weekly NYC Shootings Soar 358% Over Last Year, Data Shows

Two victims died in at least 21 shootings across four NYC boroughs between Friday and Saturday, officials said.

A total of 74 people were wounded in the 55 shootings, at least 19 of them injured in more than a dozen shootings across the five boroughs on Saturday alone. Most of that gunfire was in the Bronx; four of those shootings were in Brooklyn, two in Queens and one in Manhattan, the NYPD said.

The rise in shootings has exceeded a troubling trend that started earlier this year and comes on the heels of NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea disbanding an anti-crime plainclothes unit that had focused on stopping people and searching for guns. On Monday, Shea reaffirmed his commitment to disbanding the anti-crime unit, telling NY1, "We cannot stop our way out of this problem."

NYC shootings skyrocket as court closures let pistol perps walk free
We have over 1,000 people that have been indicted on a gun possession charge, where the cases are open, and they are walking around the streets of New York today," Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri told The Post.

That tally doesn't include about 800 additional defendants who are charged with illegally packing heat but have yet to be formally indicted when the courts ground to a halt, LiPetri said.

"This isn't the DAs' fault. I get it," LiPetri said. "They do have a very tough situation."

"We've never seen a higher percentage of parolee-involved incidents with shootings, since we've been tracking it in '05," he said.

LiPetri also observed that of the 110 people shot between June 1 and June 18, 24 percent had an open court case for gun possession.

NRF's Operation Open Doors
Guidance for retailers on safely reopening stores

Operation Open Doors - Path to Reopen Retail, led by NRF and Seyfarth LLP, is providing guidance and tools that NRF members can use as they navigate opening stores after this international health crisis. Areas for guidance on gradual reopenings include logistics, social distancing and safety issues, and how to bring employees back to the workforce.

OSHA Recommends Hazard Assessments For Each Job
New OSHA Guidance Clarifies Return-to-Work Expectations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued guidance for reopening businesses that recommends each establishment conduct a hazard assessment for all jobs. It also clarifies OSHA's positions on temperature checks, coronavirus testing and face masks.

"This is fairly consistent with guidance that OSHA has already issued and posted on its website," said Cressinda D. Schlag, an associate at Jackson Lewis in Austin, Texas. "The challenge is how to work this guidance in with the patchwork of orders and other guidance" from federal, state and local governments and health authorities.

Among the key takeaways in the return-to-work booklet:

 - Employers should conduct a thorough hazard assessment that examines the potential COVID-19 exposures for each job category and outlines protective measures.

- Employers may perform daily temperature checks and health assessments of employees, so long as the checks are administered transparently and fairly and anyone performing the checks is protected from possible infection.

Masks On? What Employers Need to Know About Face Coverings at Work
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) offered some guidance on June 10, noting that "millions of Americans will be wearing masks in their workplace for the first time" as businesses reopen and offices repopulate after months of stay-at-home orders. "OSHA generally recommends that employers encourage workers to wear face coverings at work," the agency said, but it added that employers can decide not to, "based on the specific circumstances present at the worksite."

BlueLeaks: Data from 200 US police departments & fusion centers published online

Activist group DDoSecrets published 296 GB of police data on Friday, June 19.

An activist group has published on Friday 296 GB of data they claim have been stolen from US law enforcement agencies and fusion centers.

The files, dubbed BlueLeaks, have been published by Distributed Denial of Secrets (DDoSecrets), a group that describes itself as a "transparency collective."

The data has been made available online on a searchable portal. According to the BlueLeaks portal, the leaked data contains more than one million files, such as scanned documents, videos, emails, audio files, and more.

DDoSecrets claims the leaked files contain more than ten years-worth of files belonging to more than 200 police departments and law enforcement fusion centers from across the US.

"Ten years of data from over 200 police departments, fusion centers and other law enforcement training and support resources. Among the hundreds of thousands of documents are police and FBI reports, bulletins, guides and more. [LINK]" - Tweet from Distributed Denial of Secrets (@DDoSecrets) June 19, 2020

DDoSecrets claims it received the BlueLeaks data "courtesy of Anonymous," the infamous hacktivist group.

Amazon Prime Video CISO on Slimmed-Down Budgets
CISO Dialogue: How to Optimize Your Security Budget

Brett Wahlin on how can CISOs understand how best to optimize their limited pool of security budget?

"There are many different approaches to managing a security budget, and CISOs organize and prioritize uniquely based on the company, industry, and threats. Three consistent areas of spending are identity and access management (IAM), global risk and compliance (GRC), and security operations," Wahlin told me, notiing:

IAM is always a mess because no one wants to deal with access management, passwords, access sprawl, and so on.

GRC is difficult because there are always new regulations to remain compliant with; privacy, in particular, is an ongoing challenge.

With security operations, levels of effectiveness vary. Wahlin posed several questions for consideration. "Is it in-house? Are you outsourcing to an MSSP? How are you measuring effectiveness? It's an area where I often have to retool from a people, process, and technology standpoint."

TJX Doubling Down in Stores - Will Not Look to e-Comm as Major Leveraging Point

TJX gets just 2% of its sales from e-commerce and shut its websites during the lockdowns. Even now, it is fulfilling online orders at a slower-than-normal rate, frustrating some shoppers, as it adheres to safety standards that require social distancing in its warehouses.

Mr. Herrman said e-commerce is complementary to stores, but added: “With more attractive financial metrics in brick-and-mortar versus online, we plan to continue growing e-commerce strategically.”

There are also economic reasons for the aversion to e-commerce by TJX and other off-price retailers such as Ross Stores Inc., which doesn’t sell online, and Burlington Stores Inc., which stopped doing so earlier this year, according to analysts. It is hard for discount retailers to turn a profit when factoring in the cost of shipping and returns. Moreover, some brands that sell to discounters don’t want their items online where shoppers can easily search for deals, analysts say.

Bracey Myles was loading groceries into his trunk Wednesday evening when two police cars pulled up next to his car. The 26-year-old Black man said he put his hands in the air as police told him and his fiance, Alfreda Lange, 20, that they'd been accused of stealing from the store. The encounter in the parking lot of a Holton, Kansas, Walmart went on for about 20 minutes, Lange said, while their infant son was left in the hot car. When police told Lange she couldn't turn the car on to keep her son from overheating, Myles said, he started recording. The couple had stopped at the only Walmart in town to get food for dinner and formula for their son. They used self check out and left the store without any employees approaching them, Lange said. When police pulled up to their car, they said, both were surprised and scared.

Your success is directly tied to the relationships you have with your stores, with your colleagues, and with your vendors. The ability to develop, nurture, and grow those relationships is critical if you expect to deliver the results you need. And as in the case of all relationships, it's also about what you bring to the table and the value you add. Oftentimes, one's biggest challenge is usually driven by your weakest or worst relationship and over time those are the ones that'll have the biggest impact. So take the time to access them and remember it's never too late to try to change one.
