Guardian Protection Partners to Help Fight Food Insecurity
Guardian Protection vans are usually seen in the community helping home and
business owners protect what matters most. Recently, the company put some of
their vehicles to a different use to help fight another security issue — food
Through a partnership with
412 Food Rescue, Guardian is picking up and
delivering fresh food each week to area nonprofits that will distribute the food
to those in need throughout the region.
“Our mission at Guardian is to help people feel safe and secure, especially
during uncertain times,” says Kevin Bish, vice president of marketing. “With
food insecurity increasing during the COVID-19 crisis for people throughout the
community, the partnership with 412 Food Rescue was the perfect way to mobilize
our people and vehicles for good.”
Because of the volume of food donated, it requires larger vehicles to transport
to the organizations in need. Guardian vans can move nearly 50 boxes at once
which helps ensure food gets to the people who need it, faster. To date,
Guardian food rescue heroes have transported 227 boxes to organizations in
Swissvale, Braddock, West View, Beaver Falls, Baden and Highland Park. The twice
weekly food deliveries will continue through August.
“During the COVID-19 crisis, we have been amazed by all the ways our community
has come together to help those in need. Almost 3,000 people have signed up to
volunteer, and local businesses have come up with creative ways to help get food
to the people who need it,” Leah Lizarondo, co-founder and CEO of 412 Food
Rescue comments. “Guardian Protection has been a valuable and generous partner
during this time with the donation of their vans and volunteers. We’re thankful
for their collaboration.”
Pittsburgh-based 412 Food Rescue partners with food retailers, volunteer drivers
and nonprofit organizations to connect surplus food with individuals and
families who are experiencing food insecurity. Thousands of volunteers are able
to rescue perfectly good but unsellable food that would otherwise be wasted and
redirect it to people who need it. The nonprofit’s food donor partners range
from grocery stores, wholesalers, caterers, among others. 412’s partners include
housing authorities, daycare centers, churches, community centers and more.

Crime Wave Grips New York
Shootings Increased 130% in June compared to LY -
Burglaries Up 118%
Gun violence in New York City "spiked significantly" during the month of
June compared to the same time last year, according to the NYPD's monthly
crime briefing. "Between June 1 and June 30, there was a 130% increase in
the number of shooting incidents across the city," reads the report.
There were a total of 205 shooting incidents in June — up from 89 last year
— spread across all five boroughs, according to the NYPD. The violence
continued into the July 4th holiday weekend as the NYPD reported 44 shooting
incidents, CBS New York reports.
In addition to shootings last month, murders, burglaries and auto thefts
also rose with the start of summer. Burglaries increased most significantly,
from 817 to 1,783, an 118% uptick.
"The sharp increase in shootings and violence in New York puts innocent
people at risk and tears at the fabric of life in our city," said NYPD
Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, in the briefing.
Shea said the NYPD has been challenged by "deep budget cuts" and changes to
the criminal justice system brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. New York
City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city council reached an agreement on June
30 to reallocate $1 billion of the NYPD budget, leaving the department with
$88.1 billion, CBS New York
As a result, the department's July police class was canceled, overtime was
curtailed, and school safety, crossing guards and homeless outreach were all
shifted out of the NYPD's purview. The reallocated funds will go towards
youth and community services, according to the mayor.
De Blasio says he won’t fire NYPD Commissioner Shea despite calls for

America's Former Top Cop Says NYC Has a 'Crime Virus'
Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bratton: New York ‘a mess and going to get a lot
Former Police Commissioner Bill Bratton slammed city and state leaders
Monday for abandoning cops and helping create a “crime virus” to go along
with the coronavirus in claiming innocent victims.
“The city is a mess and it’s going to get a lot worse unfortunately,”
Bratton said during a WABC-77 radio interview. Bratton surmised that the
morale of New York’s Finest is at an all-time low after “getting attacked
from all sides” and “being defunded and demeaned.”
Even more troubling, he said, citizens who would normally cooperate with
police to ferret out crime are not doing so because they “feel intimidated”
by their neighbors who are protesting police brutality in the wake of the
death of George Floyd at the hands of cops in Minneapolis.
“It’s a second storm,” Bratton said. “There’s the coronavirus that’s taking
a lot of lives on the one hand and now the crime virus that will take a lot
of lives on the other.”

U.S. reports record single-day spike of 60,000 new coronavirus cases
The country reported 60,021 newly confirmed cases over the previous 24 hours as
outbreaks continue to expand across a number of states, mostly across the
American South and West.
Arizona, California, Florida and Texas have accounted for nearly half of all
new cases in the U.S. in recent days.
The record spike comes after daily new cases fell below 50,000 over the past few
days, though some public health officials warned there could be a backlog of
reporting due to the July Fourth holiday weekend. The U.S. has reported about
51,383 new cases on average over the past seven days, a record high seven-day
average, up nearly 24.5% compared with a week ago, according to an analysis of
data collected by Johns Hopkins.
Shoppers across the country are retreating again as coronavirus cases surge
Retail traffic fairing better in states with
Retail traffic in the U.S. was down the most so far in 2020, on a year-over-year
basis, during the week ended April 18, according to data from the retail
consultancy ShopperTrak, part of part of Sensormatic Solutions. It fell 82.6%.
From then until the past 14 days, there were slight improvements. Those declines
shrank each week, according to ShopperTrak. The decline had eased to being down
just 34% from the year prior, for the week ended June 20.
But over the past two weeks, retail traffic declines have accelerated once
more, as Covid-19 cases surge nationwide, with hot spots in states including
Florida and Texas. Customers are retreating for a second time.
The week ended June 27 traffic in the U.S. was down 35.7%, according to
ShopperTrak. Last week it was down 39.5% compared with the prior year.
But not all states are looking the same - largely driven by the safety
precautions that are being taken in each of those states. Of the 38 states
with traffic falling again, only eight of those are requiring masks statewide.
Of the 13 on the rise, 11 require the general public to wear masks.
FMI Report: Safety Is Key Motivation For Online Grocery Shopping Surge

clearly, the motivations for shopping online are really important here,” said
Laurie Demeritt, CEO of Hartman, in a follow-up webinar about the recent report,

typically go online because they thought it would help save time or save money.
And that’s still important. But clearly, the issue and the motivating factor
right now is safety.”

SDM's 2020 Top Systems Integrators Report: Strength in Numbers
Security integrators ranked on the 25th Annual 2020 Top Systems Integrators
Report collectively grew 23 percent in 2019 over the previous year, but the
unpredictability of what lies ahead looms.
Last year was a year of revenue growth for many security integrators ranked on
the 2020 Top Systems Integrators Report. For some, it was their best year of
revenue growth in company history, and for others, the market was flat yet
steady. Collectively, the nation’s largest security integrators grew their 2019
North American systems integration revenue by 23 percent over 2018. This is
particularly solid evidence of a great year in the security industry as the year
before was also a year of growth: those ranked on the Top Systems Integrators
Report last year, saw a growth rate of 14 percent over their 2017 systems
One area in particular that many of this year’s Top Systems Integrators noted
growth in was hosted and managed services. In fact, with so many security
integrators focusing on growing their RMR through these types of services, SDM
ranked the top 25 Top Systems Integrators by their reported Recurring Monthly
Revenue or RMR for 2019. Top Systems Integrators saw RMR growth with $789.49
million in 2019 collectively, compared with $727.97 in 2018.
Big Four Heading for Audit Shakeup in U.K.
The U.K. is moving closer to a far-reaching shakeup of the Big Four
accounting firms that would separate their audit and consulting businesses
after a series of high-profile audit failures.
The Big Four sign off on the accounts of more than 95% of the U.K.’s 350 largest
listed companies. They have been under scrutiny since the collapse of government
contractor Carillion, which had been audited by KPMG for 19 years.
The U.K.'s accounting watchdog has asked the firms to submit a plan by Oct. 23
for separating their audit and consulting businesses.
The principles aim to, among other things, ensure that audit practice governance
protects auditors from being exposed to “influences from the rest of the
firm that could divert their focus away from audit quality.”

A dual cybersecurity mindset for the next normal
As companies extend commitments to remote workforces, cybersecurity teams need
to address new risks while helping create business value in the next normal.
As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, most organizations made
a quick transition to a remote workforce and a more intense focus on serving
customers through digital channels. This created a rapid surge in demand for
digital capabilities, products, and services. Cybersecurity teams, for their
part, were largely successful in taking on a
dual mission of supporting business continuity and protecting the enterprise
and its customers.
The digital response to the COVID-19 crisis has also created new security
vulnerabilities. Attackers seek to exploit the gaps opened when telecommuting
employees use insecure devices and networks. Threat actors also use known attack
techniques to exploit people’s COVID-19-related fears. For example, Google
tallied more than 18 million malware and phishing emails related to the novel
coronavirus on its service each day in April. It also reported identifying more
than a dozen government-backed groups using COVID-19 themes for these attempts.1
1. Threat Analysis Group, “Findings on COVID-19 and online security
threats,” blog entry by Shane Huntley, Google, April 22, 2020, blog.google.
Chief information-security officers (CISOs) and cybersecurity teams will need
to approach the next horizon of business with a dual mindset. They must
first address the new risks arising from the shift to a remote digital working
environment, securing the required technology. They will also need to anticipate
the next normal—how their workforce, customers, supply chain, channel partners,
and sector peers will work together—so that they may appropriately engage and
embed security by design. The new context of changing customer and employee
behavior and a constantly shifting threat landscape must also be considered.
Addressing risks and fortifying gains - Assessing and knocking down hot spots
- Fixing and mopping up operations - Fortifying security gains - Anticipating
the next normal - Secure the workforce in new ways of working - Secure the
customer journey through the shift to digital business - Rethink supply chain
and third-party risk - Sustain increased sector collaboration - Cybersecurity

California Consumer Privacy Act
It's Official: CCPA Enforcement Officially Began on July 1
California Consumer Privacy Act officially began on July 1 despite the
lack of a final, codified version of the regulation. The law
applies to organizations - regardless of location - that
have access to Californian's personal data.
Regulatory experts advise that organizations should prepare to comply with a
draft resolution presented by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra's
office to the state's
Administrative Law for final approval on June 1.
Technically, CCPA is not enforceable until the OAL completes its review and
returns the resolution to the attorney general's office. Nevertheless, in a June
statement, Becerra announced the attorney general's office would begin
enforcing the measure July 1.
CCPA was officially signed into law on June 28, 2018 and went into effect Jan.
1, 2020. But the state said it would not prosecute any companies that failed to
comply for the first six months the law was in effect. Meanwhile, several
possible changes to the law are still being vetted by the OAL.
Shannon Yavorsky, a privacy and data security partner at Orrick, says it's
unclear if the state can legally attempt to enforce regulations that are not
reflected in a final, codified law. Regardless, her firm is advising clients to
behave as if the law will immediately be enforced.

Bills Call for State, White House Cybersecurity Coordinators
A bipartisan group of U.S. senators has
introduced an amendment to the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act
that would provide funding for a cybersecurity coordinator in every state.
Under the amendment, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, a unit of
the Department of Homeland Security, would appoint the state cybersecurity
coordinators, who would help respond to the increasing number of cyberthreats
targeting local entities, such as municipalities and school districts.
Meanwhile in the House, the bipartisan
National Cyber Director Act, introduced June 25, calls for restoring
the cybersecurity director position within the White House, which was
eliminated by the Trump administration. Similar legislation introduced earlier
failed to advance. The Cyberspace Solarium Commission recommended the creation
of a national cyber director in its March report. Under the legislation, the
director would coordinate cyber strategy and policy and act as the president's
principal adviser on cybersecurity.

anti-government, pro-gun movement linked to recent
violence in the U.S. is gaining supporters in Canada —
prompting warnings from experts over their often hateful, violent remarks
against protesters, police and Ottawa's new firearms restrictions.
In the U.S, Boogaloos have recently been in the spotlight, after some showed
up heavily armed at anti-lockdown and Black Lives Matter demonstrations.
There are no reports of Boogaloos at Canadian protests. But online, the
nascent movement has inspired at least two Facebook pages where followers
have recently talked about killing protesters and RCMP officers alike.
The Facebook pages identified by CBC News were created in the past six months
and in that time grew to around 800 followers each.

story was published that a total of 18 confirmed cases stemmed from this
Vanessa ended up being one of the employees to test positive for the virus that
causes COVID-19 after she said she got infected while working in the store.
While Vanessa has made a full recovery, she alleges management handled the
situation poorly and that she had to advocate for her own self-isolation
following exposure. She also felt anxious returning to work.
“Everyone had this feeling of who’s next, and what aren’t they telling us?”
she said. “I think they’re worried about offending their customer base instead
of protecting their workers.”

Wave of Store Closures to Hit Canada in the Summer of 2020
Many stores will be closing in Canada over the summer as brands are hit hard
in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. While it’s challenging to quantify the
number of permanent closures at this time, it appears hundreds of individual
store locations in Canada will be vacated before the fall.
The list of store closures include independent retailers as well as medium
and larger chains which have either filed for bankruptcy protection or are
simply shutting stores amid financial turmoil. Prior to COVID-19, many retail
chains in Canada were struggling amid debt and the pandemic has in effect sped
up the process by creating further financial challenges.

websites such as Ebay. It was further part of the conspiracy that Value-It
would receive monetary payments for the stolen merchandise that had been sold
over the Internet.
Danville, IL: Suspect behind bars for stealing $22K in items from Menards
According to the Vermilion County State's Attorney, in August and October 2019,
the suspect, Jody Carson, visited Menards in Danville multiple times. At the
store, Carson purchased items, obtained an invoice, and used the invoice to gain
access to the lumber yard. Here, the suspect loaded a flatbed truck with
additional lumber that was not purchased. This was done with the assistance of a
store employee who was working the gate. Then, Carson left the lumber yard with
the stolen materials. Officials said throughout several months, Carson stole
over $22,000 worth of materials. Carson was sentenced to five years in prison
for theft over $10,000.
Update: Portland, ME: Final defendant in $200,000+ Retail Burglaries spree
The final of three defendants who were charged with a series of business
break-ins across the state during 2015, including at the J.C. Penney in
Rockland, was sentenced last week. Michael J. Warner, 41, of Portland, was
sentenced June 29 for four burglaries including the Sept. 3, 2015 break-in at
the former retail store in Rockland. The sentence was for six years in prison to
be followed by two years of probation. Warner's other pleas were for burglaries
in Cumberland and Kennebec counties. He was given credit for time he has already
spent in jail awaiting the conclusion of the cases. Warner was one of three
suspects in 25 nighttime break-ins at businesses across southern and central
Maine. Police estimated that the losses totaled more than $200,000. In the J.C.

The incident started as a physical fight at the store. The suspect later
returned and shot the victim multiple times, the sheriff's office said. The
shootings happened in the early-morning hours on Sunday at a convenience store

victim. Deputies said the guard was still attempting to revive the victim when
they arrived at the store. That victim was rushed to the hospital where they
were pronounced dead. Deputies arrested Pratt after a short investigation. While
he was being arrested, deputies discovered that Pratt had been shot once in the
lower body. He was taken to the hospital to be treated. His condition was not

good relationship and he could tell Samel was going through a rough time. Bahri
said he underwent emergency heart surgery after the stabbing and his family was
unsure if he’d survive. He lost his job because the post traumatic stress

Every industry, every company has its core objectives of adding value and
impacting the whole. In theory, all of us are are on a mission to make a
difference and create change that ultimately benefits the industry, the company
we're with, and ourselves. At the end of the day, it's all about the people that
are feeding this evolution and while that's our strength, it's also our
weakness. Regardless of how strong our product, service or LP model is, it
always comes down to the people and the relationships. And with those two
variables constantly changing, sometimes for the better and at times for the
worst, it's how you deal with the worst that determines how far you'll go and
who you are. Facing it is the key and denial is the lock.
