first_imgBy Dialogo June 28, 2013 The police officers are not the ones to blame in this process. In a country where people pay almost 40% in taxes, it is unacceptable that police officers are poorly equipped, badly trained, and unprepared to face situations of this nature. It is most likely that the resource management is incoherent. *Fernando Montenegro, Retired Colonel of the Brazilian Army Special Forces, Terrorism and Public and Private Security Analyst However, the initiative of rescuing the quality and self-esteem of the Brazilian police, beyond just acquiring nice-looking uniforms, is the responsibility of the public security managers. Unquestionably, besides the equipment, instruction, and higher pay, it is essential that the Brazilian Criminal Code be revised. The biggest incentive for misconduct is the assurance of impunity. An insignificant number of vandals and looters have been arrested so far. At that time, anybody with the least bit of knowledge on negotiation/crises management could easily identify the serious mistakes made during the process. Besides the fact that the area had not been isolated and the reporters were free to report the news without any concern for possibly interfering with the development of the incident, no other alternative tactics were mentioned other than the negotiation, such as the use of chemical agents and snipers. As if this were not enough, the negotiation, which must be conducted by a subject matter expert due to media interference, was led at the time by the commander of BOPE himself, and ended up compromising the name of the institution, because he was neither commanding nor coordinating. So much so, that the officer who “decided” to pull the trigger did so by his own initiative. Brazil has an excellent national industry focused on technologies for non-lethal riot control, especially the Condor company. But handling the equipment requires constant training and practice, as well as joint simulations. An institution that does not invest in refresher trainings is subjected to this type of exposure. In fact, we can be free of incidents for 100 years, but the security forces cannot afford to spend one second without being prepared. Whenever problems occur, there is no time to initiate processes of acquisition, distribution, instruction, and the use of equipment. Bus number 174 was hijacked with several passengers who were released little by little after negotiations, until only one woman was left. When the kidnapper finally decided to surrender to the police, an officer from the Special Police Operations Battalion (BOPE), decided to shoot the perpetrator by his own initiative and missed the target, hitting the hostage in the head and killing her. The kidnapper was rapidly brought into the police car, but was asphyxiated to death on the way to the police station. The world press was present and the entire incident was broadcast live. center_img The international public opinion is closely following the evolution of the disturbances and considers the possibility that they may reoccur with greater intensity during the World Cup, scheduled to occur in only one year. Many tourists underwent difficult situations or were injured on their way to the stadiums; even the cars belonging to the FIFA were damaged and hit by rocks. The managers of the process must take urgent actions to mitigate the social tensions and properly prepare the security forces that will guarantee peace for the upcoming large scale events in Brazil. Thirteen years later, we watched in real time the lack of preparation of poorly equipped police officers being attacked by vandals and looters. The officers not only failed to defend the historical patrimony, public and private assets, but also had their physical and moral integrity severely compromised. Since June 12, 2000, when a tragedy on a bus took place in the district of Jardim Botânico (Botanic Garden), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the local Military Police had not been so demoralized on live television broadcast, for the rest of the world to see. It is known by many specialists that the “camera syndrome” easily affects the average Brazilian police officer. As soon as police officers notice a reporter covering an incident, they start verbal arguments on many occasions, copying the attitude of Hollywood actors and often taking unnecessary and improper actions. We saw police officers carrying lethal weapons (rifles), shooting in the air for no reason. Professional troublemakers and agitators, like many of the ones who led the loots, are very well aware that after such episodes as the April 1996 massacre known as “Eldorado dos Carajás,” where 19 protesters from the Brazilian Landless Workers’ movement were allegedly executed by the Military Police troops from the state of Pará, and the October 1992 invasion of the Carandiru penitentiary, when 111 inmates were killed by the Military Police of the state of Sao Paulo during a rebellion, the officers hesitate to use lethal weapons to control disorder, fearing a lifetime in court explaining a possible abuse and even facing the risk of being sentenced. After the incident, many BOPE officers requested to be removed from the unit, which only recovered its self-respect after the release of the book “Elite Squad”, and the subsequent release of a movie with the same name. last_img read more

first_imgBeing a great leader also requires you to be a well-liked leader. While we often have to make tough business decisions, meet deadlines and keep daily operations running smoothly, we also need to be equally focused on building and maintaining positive relationships.Developing this kind of likability can only be attained through your actions – how you make people feel – not based on how you look or your level of success. Inc.com contributor Jeff Haden lists 11 habits of “genuinely likable people” – habits that will help make a great first impression, and also a great lasting impression. His list includes:Give before you receive, fully expecting to not receive anything.Shift the spotlight to other people.Listen three times more than you talk.Never practice selective hearing. continue reading » 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img continue reading » In her 2017 book, The Origin of Others, Toni Morrison asks, “Why should we want to know a stranger when it is easier to estrange another? Why should we want to close the distance when we can close the gate?”The United States is getting increasingly—even radically—diverse, both racially and ethnically. According to the US Census, by 2055, less than 40 years from now, it people of color will be 52% of the population. Unfortunately, with these major demographic shifts across our country, we are increasingly seeing each other as stranger rather than guest.For CUNA Mutual Group and credit unions across the country to best serve the current and future needs of our customer base, we must begin to understand and reflect the changing demographics of our nation. We must view diversity as an asset to be built and embraced, as opposed to a threat to our existence. In fact, McKinsey & Company’s 2015 Diversity Matters report states that companies in the top quartile of racial and ethnic diversity and gender diversity have higher financial returns compared to national industry medians.

first_imgHe says he wants the public to know that it’s easy to tell if the person contacting you is really a member of the Broome County Health Department’s team. “We occasionally hear someone say ‘you’re taking away my rights’ and to a certain extent that could be true, but really what we’re doing is trying to protect everyone here,” he says. “I can see that point of view, but I also know that most people have someone who’s maybe a little bit older or in poor health and if they get COVID-19 it’s a crap-shoot at that point.” Taft says while he understands the concerns community members may have about the contact tracing process, it’s important for the health department to be able to keep track of those close contacts.. Taft says while he understands everyone’s concerns from scams to privacy, he wants you to remember one thing if you get the call. He also says at this point if anyone comes to your house to tell you that you may have been exposed, it’s a scam. “If someone is concerned I give them our main number to call and to ask for me by name and that always works,” he says. “A case investigator contacts a positive case, finds out all of the contacts that person has and what’s considered a contact is anyone who has been within six feet of that positive case for ten minutes or longer,” says Christopher Taft, part of the Broome County Health Department’s contact tracing team. “We’re professionals here. We’re trying to do something that’s vital to the community.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As New York State begins the reopening process, The Broome County Health Department is reminding everyone that contact tracing is an important part of that process. At the same time, they are urging you to be on the lookout for scammers. Taft says if you do get a call from someone saying they are a contact tracer and you still aren’t sure, a member of his team will always be willing to prove their identity. He says while those concerns have made some people reluctant to participate, a new report by the Federal Trade Commission warning of scammers posing as contact tracers has made things even more difficult. “We’re not going to knock on your door and say ‘hey you’re a close contact we have to talk to you’ we do these things by phone,” he says. “All of our legitimate numbers begin with 7-7-8,” he says “Most of them are 2-8 after that but if they don’t begin with 7-7-8 it’s simply not the health department.” “We’re the health department. This is just an extension of our mission to keep everyone as safe and healthy as we can,” he says. “If we’re calling you and asking you to stay inside for fourteen days really it’s for your benefit and more importantly for anyone around you who you may know or love who’s at risk.”last_img read more

first_imgThe breach comes at a time when e-commerce has become an essential need as people opt for online shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic. New sellers on Tokopedia, particularly in the personal health category, have seen a 250 percent surge, while business research and consultancy firm Inventure Indonesia categorizes e-commerce as one of the few sectors to benefit from social distancing. A recent data breach jeopardizing more than 15 million user accounts of Indonesian unicorn Tokopedia has exposed the vulnerability of personal data on digital platforms as Indonesians increasingly turn to e-commerce to meet their needs from home.The cybersecurity research collective Under the Breach told The Jakarta Post in an e-mail correspondence that large companies such as Tokopedia were at a disadvantage by having a lot of employees with access to the companies’ internal systems.“Hackers often use social engineering tactics to send phishing emails to employees, which in return allows them access to different systems inside the company,” the e-mail reads. Furthermore, big companies usually rely heavily on third party companies’ products that integrate with their systems, which means the third parties have access to the company’s internal and sensitive systems further exposing it to the risk of hacking.The collective first reported the massive data leak on its official Twitter page @underthebreach on May 2. It also revealed that data on 91 million Tokopedia users was allegedly being sold online for US$5,000.center_img Communication & Information System Security Research Center (CISSReC) chairman Pratama Persadha said the incident would cause concern among consumers shopping in online marketplaces, especially those which held payment data such as credit and debit card information.“It’s possible that other e-commerce platforms have been hacked too,” he said referring to the 2015 Bukalapak data breach. “It’s just that Tokopedia’s hackers opted to publicize and sell the data to the public while others might have asked for money directly from the company.”Read also: Small businesses resort to online channels to survive pandemicThe Hacker-Powered Security Report 2019 published by bug bounty platform HackerOne suggests that data leaks among retail and e-commerce platforms are happening more frequently than is recognized as more than two-thirds of all retailers consider cybercrime their top security issue.Meanwhile, recent research by security firm Kaspersky shows that identifiable personal information such as name and age are the type of data most often targeted by cybercriminals. Once hit by a cyberattack, 29 percent of the targeted companies said that they had difficulties attracting new customers.Read also: Hacking against corporations surges as workers take computers homeInstitute for Policy Research and Advocacy (ELSAM) said Tokopedia as a digital platform and data holder must notify its users, especially those whose data were breached, in accordance with Government Regulation (PP) No. 71/2019.Communication and Information Ministerial Regulation No. 20/2016 allows for a notification process of up to 14 days, whereas the personal data protection bill would require it to be done within three days.“Unfortunately, although [the data leak] happened a few days ago, there has still not been any written notification from the platform provider to its consumers as personal data owners,” ELSAM wrote in an official press statement.Indonesia has yet to have its own version of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as deliberations have stalled since the government submitted the draft bill to the House of Representatives in January.Read also: Data protection bill: House, activists warn of abuse of powerTokopedia held a meeting on Monday with Communications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate and the National Cyber and Encryption Agency (BSSN), after which the minister said financial and user data were “safe”.“Tokopedia has explained that user accounts and financial data are safe. It was conveyed [during the meeting that Tokopedia’s] security system cannot be breached, although data relating to names, emails and telephone numbers may have partly been accessed by hackers,” Johnny said after the meeting. “Tokopedia is conducting an in-depth evaluation.”Tokopedia spokesperson Nuraini Razak stressed that users should change their passwords periodically to prevent further data breaches and phishing.Indonesia E-Commerce Association (idEA) chairman Ignatius Untung said that people should not be worried about using e-commerce sites as each platform would try to improve security regardless of whether a data breach has happened.He went on to say that every platform that has experienced data leakage must be regarded as a victim rather than the perpetrator as he believed no e-commerce platform would intentionally create a faulty security system so that data could be leaked.Read also: E-commerce dominates in 2019 with Tokopedia topping the list“It is unfortunate that the platform is often considered as the only party responsible in cases of a data breach,” he said. “While the hackers are often spared from scrutiny, even though they are the culprits.”The term “hacker” often has negative connotations associated with criminality. However, there has been a growing trend of good bug bounty hackers whose job it is to detect companies’ privacy gaps and report them to be fixed.“Bug bounties are getting more popular in the cybersecurity industry and they go hand-in-hand with penetration testing as a form of defense-in-depth solution,” said Singapore-based HackerOne hacker Samuel Eng.According to HackOne data, in the past year, the retail and e-commerce industry saw a 23 percent growth in hacker-powered security programs but it still only accounted for 4 percent of all hacker-powered security programs.Topics :last_img read more
