<div class="body gsd-paywall article-body"><p>Financial services firms are reportedly hit by security incidents 300 times more frequently than other businesses, according to ID Theft Resource Center. To help financial planners protect their data and comply with the cybersecurity requirements established by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and FINRA, the Financial Planning Association (FPA) today launched <a data-link-type="Other" href="http://www.financialplanningassociation.org/cyber">Cybersecurity for Financial Planners: An FPA Certificate Program</a>.</p><p>The certificate program, which includes six focus areas, was developed in partnership with FCI, a leading financial services cybersecurity authority and participant in FINRA’s Preferred Pricing Program. The program guides financial planners through a step-by-step process to establish a customized, long-term cybersecurity plan that ensures they are adopting reliable security measures that safeguard client data and provide a record of the firm’s cybersecurity practices if audited by regulators.</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-article-body-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>“A tremendous amount of data and assets are at stake, and financial planning professionals are a prime target for cyber thieves. With billions of dollars lost each year due to cybercrime, it’s imperative financial planners earn client loyalty and trust by embracing a cybersecurity strategy that keeps data and assets safe,” says 2020 FPA President Martin C. Seay, Ph.D., CFP. “Brian Edelman, Vincent Guyaux, and the entire FCI team are leading authorities on these important matters. This partnership and the certificate program specifically will help financial planners build a sound cybersecurity plan that is needed more than ever considering the fast pace at which business is being done digitally.”</p><p>As part of the FPA Learning Center, the certificate program is designed to educate financial professionals on critical aspects of cybersecurity, how to implement a cybersecurity program successfully, and how to safeguard sensitive information and confidential data. The program is broken down into six sections:</p><ul> <li> <strong>Section 1: Introduction to Cybersecurity </strong>— Explores the history of cybersecurity and significant changes that have taken place since 2014. Participants also learn why the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) requirements are of central focus when building a cybersecurity program.</li> <li> <strong>Section 2: What is a Cybersecurity Program? </strong>— Provides an overview of a cybersecurity program and outlines the differences between controls, sections, and policies. Participants gain an understanding of policy ownership and the basics of creating a new policy. </li> <li> <strong>Section 3: Program Controls </strong>— Covers the different policies under Program Controls, types of information that falls under Non-Public Information (NPI), risk management and risk assessment, and the role of the Security Team and its members.</li> <li> <strong>Section 4: Process Controls </strong>— Details the significance of a business continuity plan, the importance of a Security Incident Response Plan (SIRP), the purpose of vendor risk management and potential challenges, and the value of a Change Management Log.</li> <li> <strong>Section 5: Data Controls </strong>— Describes infrastructure management, endpoints and how they’re managed, file and data management, and the importance of user management and password management software.</li> <li> <strong>Section 6: Technical and Physical Controls </strong>— Explains managed endpoint security, the significance of workstations, mobile device and network security, the importance of Incident Response Plans, and physical security.</li> </ul><p>“FCI was pleased to support this FPA initiative by participating in the course design and development,” says Brian Edelman, CEO of FCI. “Financial advisers can now leverage the certificate to implement and manage their cyber program to reduce their risk.”</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-sidebar-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>The course was designed and is delivered in a format similar to a hands-on workshop, which means those completing the course will receive a digital certificate for accomplishment and have a completed, compliant cybersecurity plan for their firm. CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professionals completing the entire program will earn 2.5 CFP CE credits.</p><p>Financial planners interested in learning more about the Cybersecurity for Financial Planners certificate program can visit <a data-link-type="Other" href="http://www.financialplanningassociation.org/cyber">www.financialplanningassociation.org/cyber</a>.

How $377 million will be lost due to ad fraud in the 2020 US campaign

<div class="body gsd-paywall article-body"><p>The U.S. Presidential Election has, in many ways, been digital. Spend on digital ads in the race reached <a href="https://www.wsj.com/articles/as-political%20-ad-spending-balloons-online-consensus-on-regulation-is-elusive-11573813803">$2.9 billion</a> in 2020. This was up sharply from $0.4 billion four years ago, marking the continuing prominence of digital political campaigning since President Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe heralded the channel as a <a href="https://www.marketingweek.com/digital-marketing-key-to-obamas-success/">deciding factor</a> in the election 12 years ago.</p> <p>However, an increasing challenge for this online ad spend has been ad fraud. In a <a href="https://www.cheq.ai/adfraudcost">new study</a>, in association with the University of Baltimore, we see that marketers will $35 billion to digital ad fraud in 2020.</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-article-body-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>Ad fraud is the practice of fraudulently representing online advertising impressions, clicks, conversion or data events in order to generate revenue. In the case of the political campaigns, often money is spent reaching bots rather than voters.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>How ad fraud is getting more sophisticated</strong></p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-sidebar-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>The impact of bots and ad fraud on digital ad spend has grown as ad fraudsters have become more sophisticated. For the majority of fraudsters, the automation tools used to commit fraud are evolving without them having to do anything about it – fraudsters just have to hide and rewrite certain elements in order to evade more and more tests. In addition, one in five click fraud cases involve VPNs or proxies – disguising the fact that the user clicking on a campaign ad is actually located in countries other than the U.S. – and therefore almost certainly not eligible to vote.</p> <p>Bot-makers create millions of headless browsers, that can simulate all human-like actions on ads and landing pages, such as mouse movement, page scrolling, and clicks, to load webpages and cause ad impressions, that appear entirely human. Malicious SDKs for advanced and AI-powered click injection are sold in the Dark Web on sale to the public for a fairly low price to perpetrate ad fraud, offering the opportunity in the words of the suppliers to "emulate ad clicks and hijack clicks including Google, and Facebook and organic clicks."</p> <p>In relation to our findings around digital campaigns, we expect that ad fraud in digital ad spend accounted for $377 million in wasted budget. Some of the findings include that one in five click fraud cases involve VPNs or proxies – disguising the fact that the user clicking on a campaign ad is actually located in countries other than the U.S. – and therefore almost certainly not eligible to vote.</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-sidebar-mrect-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p> </p> <p><strong>How digital campaigns suffered from ad fraud</strong></p> <p>There are a number of reasons that political campaigning runs into ad fraud problems. Firstly, the need to spend money and fast diminishes accountability. Zach Edwards, who worked on the online digital campaigns for President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg, says: "There is no ad fraud department in most of these buying teams that can be spending "$30,000 to 50,000 a day. In a business ad buy you have an ROI, you have people checking it for months afterwards, and if it didn't pan out you may ask for a refund, whereas in political buying the only day that matters is election day. So, you are spending money as fast as you possibly can. Because the political campaigns are so short, there is no accountability for ad fraud. But because the campaigns dissolve, no one ever checks that, and no-one ever asks for refunds."</p> <p>Secondly, most spend online for political campaigns is at the end of the U.S. campaign. However, limits set by Google and Facebook, the two safer destinations for ad cash, has meant other more junk ad-fraud prone traffic received late splurges of cash. This type of traffic over inflates its numbers through bot traffic. In the words of Cam Cameron, digital political consultant at Strategic Partners &amp; Media: "There is definitely a too good to be true feeling when I am being pitched by new partners, new websites where they are coming at me telling me they are getting so much traffic - a local news blog will come at you and I will do the math on their area and it does not make sense. I have a lot of questions to ask them, starting with, 'How can you prove you do not have bots and that is not a large proportion of your views or clicks?'"</p> <p>Thirdly, OTT streaming where campaigns have spent <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/02/20/hulu-roku-political-ads-streaming/">millions</a> of ad dollars, is <a href="https://www.cheq.ai/ottcosts">particularly vulnerable</a> to ad fraud. Fraud rates on OTT inventory stand at 17%, according to almost all estimates. Several OTT ad fraud cases has been discovered in 2020.</p> <p>Finally, competitor clicks (one party clicking on another ads) are also likely.  This involves opposition campaigns clicking on ads of their competitors to drain ad spend. With pay per click on political keywords costing up to $10 per keyword, this sneaky ad fraud prevents ads from being seen by the intended electorate. This is despite such <a href="https://www.cheq.ai/click-fraud-illegal">click fraud</a> being illegal violating the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA). Under this law, you can go to prison for up to 10 years. Such competitor click fraud has seen a rapid increase <a href="https://www.clickcease.com/blog/the-state-of-click-fraud-in-sme-advertising-2020/">during COVID-19</a> particularly in white collar sectors such as real estate and law firms, under economic pressure. Click fraud is perpetrated to deplete advertisers' budget in an attempt to remove the ad from the search engine results, and damages campaign data.</p> <p>Bots don't vote, however large sums of campaign spending in 2020 has been spent in reaching them, rather than real voters. In reality, few campaigns think about carrying out post-mortems in digital spend after a campaign. However, seeking answers on whether campaigns reached voters, or bots, represents a crucial analysis to ensure greater efficiency for future political races.</p></div>

<div class="body gsd-paywall article-body"><div> <div>The Department of Justice announced grant awards totaling more than $341 million to help fight America’s addiction crisis. Office of Justice Programs (OJP) Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Katharine T. Sullivan discussed this year's grant awards during a roundtable discussion of mental health and addiction issues led by Second Lady Karen Pence.</div> </div> <div role="main" style="clear:none;"> <article about="/opa/pr/department-justice-announces-more-341-million-grants-combat-america-s-addiction-crisis" role="article" typeof="sioc:Item foaf:Document"> <div> <div> <div> <div> <p>“The addiction crisis has taken an enormous toll on America’s families and communities, eroding public health, threatening public safety and claiming tens of thousands of lives year after year,” said Attorney General William P. Barr. “Through comprehensive measures taken by this administration, we have been able to curtail the opioid epidemic, but new and powerful drugs are presenting exceptional challenges that we must be prepared to meet. The Justice Department’s substantial investments in enforcement, response, and treatment will help us overcome these challenges and work towards freeing Americans from abuse and addiction.”</p> <p>“If we hope to defeat an enemy as powerful, persistent and adaptable as illicit drugs, we must be at least as determined and versatile, focusing our ingenuity and resources on curbing abuse and fighting addiction,” said OJP's Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney Katharine T. Sullivan. “It was a privilege to join the Second Lady in announcing these investments, which will enable criminal justice officials and substance abuse, mental health and other medical professionals to pool their assets and bring the full weight of our public safety and treatment systems down on this epidemic that has already caused so much harm.”</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-article-body-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>Illegal drugs and illicit drug use have claimed the lives of nearly 400,000 Americans since the turn of the century. Powerful synthetic opioids like fentanyl are exacting an enormous toll on families and communities, and an emergence in the use of methamphetamines and other psychostimulants is drawing drug traffickers and driving up overdose rates. Three years ago, President Trump declared a Public Health Emergency and initiated a whole-of-government approach dedicated to ending this national tragedy. The Department of Justice has invested unprecedented levels of funding in combating the addiction crisis. The awards announced today build on those earlier investments.</p> <p>Funding is made available through the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), components of OJP.</p> <ul> <li>More than $147 million under BJA’s <em>Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant and Substance Abuse Site-based Program</em> will help prosecutors develop strategies to address violent crime caused by illegal opioid distribution and abuse.</li> <li>More than $57 million will fund BJA’s <em>Adult Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court Discretionary Grant Program</em>, which helps states, state courts, local courts and federally recognized tribal governments implement and enhance the operations of adult drug courts and veteran treatment courts. BJA also awarded more than $12 million for related training and technical assistance.</li> <li>BJA awarded more than $28 million to fund the <em>Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program</em>, which enhances the capacity of regulatory and law enforcement agencies and public health officials to collect and analyze controlled substance prescription data and other scheduled chemical products through a centralized database administered by an authorized agency.</li> <li>BJA awarded $28 million to support the <em>Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners Program</em>, which helps states develop and implement residential substance abuse treatment programs within state and local correctional facilities, as well as detention facilities, in which inmates are incarcerated for a time sufficient to permit substance abuse treatment.</li> <li>BJA awarded $2.6 million to fund the <em>National Community Courts Site-based and Training and Technical Assistance Initiative</em>, which helps community court grantees and practitioners develop effective responses to low-level and non-violent offenses.</li> <li>OJJDP awarded over $19 million across 21 jurisdictions under its <em>Family Drug Court Program</em> to build the capacity of state and local courts, units of local government and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance existing family drug courts or implement statewide or countywide family drug court practices. The program aims to increase collaboration with substance abuse treatment and child welfare systems to ensure the provision of treatment and other services for families that improve child, parent and family outcomes.</li> <li>More than $5 million will support OJJDP’s<em> Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program,</em> designed to help jurisdictions that want to establish or enhance a juvenile drug treatment court and to improve court system operations and treatment services.</li> <li>OJJDP awarded $14 million under two categories of its <em>Mentoring Opportunities for Youth Initiative </em>to address opioid and other substance abuse.</li> <li>Just over $4 million was awarded to support youth mentoring organizations that have a partnership with a public or private substance abuse treatment agency to provide mentoring services for youth impacted by unlawful or addictive opioid use.</li> <li>Nearly $10 million was awarded to build mentoring program capacity in targeted regions throughout the country to support statewide or regional approaches to expanding mentoring services for youth impacted by opioids.</li> <li>Nearly $9 million will fund OJJDP’<em>s Opioid Affected Youth Initiative</em>, which will support states, communities, tribes and nonprofits implementing programs and strategies that identify, respond to, treat and support children, youth and families impacted by the opioid epidemic.</li> <li>Another $1 million will fund specialized training to serve families impacted by opioids as part of a larger award under OJJDP’s <em>Child Abuse Training for Judicial and Court Personnel</em></li> <li>OVC will fund more than $12 million under the <em>Enhancing Community Responses to America’s Drug Crisis: Serving Our Youngest Crime Victims Program</em> to support direct services to children and youth who are crime victims as a result of the nation's addiction crisis; and nearly $1.5 million to one organization to support training and technical assistance for the direct services grantees.</li> <li>NIJ will fund nearly $1.5 million on <em>Research and Evaluation on Drugs and Crime</em>, which will support rigorous applied research on evidence-based tools, protocols and policy efforts that will address drug traffickers, markets and related violence.

Driving sales and reducing theft with video

<div class="body gsd-paywall article-body"><p>Bottom line – the correct video management solution can drive sales and reduce thefts.</p> <p>Let’s imagine you have a theft in your retail store and report it to your insurer. The first question you will most likely be asked is, “what preventive measure did you employ?” and if you have none, or very minimal in place, then for the sake of your premiums and preventing thefts from your premises, it really is time to start considering a video surveillance solution. </p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-article-body-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>In addition, thefts from businesses have been further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced staff cuts. Fewer employees working in stores has meant less coverage and more blind spots which has created three main challenges: </p> <ul> <li>First is an increased potential for shoplifting.</li> <li>Second is theft of time by staff using these blind spots to their advantage to make or take calls, text or play games on their smart devices.</li> <li>And third is an increased potential for false claims through invented falls or other similar injuries.</li> </ul> <p> </p> <h3><strong>How video helps reduce theft</strong></h3> <p>Counteracting this is easy with the right surveillance video management software (VMS) and modern Artificial Intelligence (AI).</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-sidebar-sky-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>Before considering which AI, it’s best to first establish your core VMS. Key points of consideration should start with choosing either a Central Server based platform or Distributed Network Architecture (DNA) system. Central Server Architecture (CSA) Systems are generally more widely found but Distributed Systems have the key advantage of eliminating the single point of failure; the centralized server.</p> <p>DNA Systems are kind of like “YouTube” for the VMS and function by connecting the User Client directly to the Camera. By going directly to the camera, you bypass the Network Video Recorder (NVR), which in a CSA system plays the role of traffic cop by controlling the user login, camera connectivity, and both the recorded and playback video. However, in a CSA System, if the NVR fails so does your ability to see video, both live and playback. This runs the risk of important events being missed and, while an emergency call to the Integrator can see the camera quickly repaired, the whole scenario can easily be avoided with a DNA based system.</p> <p>Other direct benefits of a DNA System include the quick camera connection and low-latency movement of PTZ Cameras. Again, because of the direct connection to the camera, the video isn’t bogged down by processing which takes place in the NVR of a CSA System, which can be critical when viewing live video. The means you’ll never miss a frame of video because the NVR was busy performing another process.</p> <div id="div-gpt-ad-sidebar-mrect-mobile" class="advertisement"></div> <p>DNA Systems are faster at exporting video too; simply, these systems “stream” video to the disk and don’t require transcoding of the video, meaning it delivers video to the disk faster. Speed is everything for both live and playback, and by not having to transcode the video for export, delivery of the forensic evidence is much faster than in CSA Systems. Said differently, CSA Systems can take hours to deliver what DNA Systems deliver in a few minutes.</p> <p> </p> <h3><strong>How AI in video helps reduce theft</strong></h3> <p>When discussing theft, you can’t leave out AI as a smarter, less time-consuming way to review and research your recorded video. Speed of export of DNA-based systems plays well into this aspect by delivering you information for watch lists in near-real time. Use of AI in theft could mean highlighting an object of interest to search for its disappearance or as sophisticated as finding a person who fits a specific description. AIs have reached a level of sophistication that you can ask them to search for a female wearing a blue short-sleeve shirt, ball-cap, and khaki shorts who traveled from right to left at a high rate of speed. In today’s Coronavirus impacted world, AI can also lend itself well to reverse contact tracing.</p> <p>Thermal Screening is also capturing a great deal of attention and is another related technology that can help encourage sales by giving people the confidence they are entering safe and healthy environments.</p> <p>AI may also be employed to aid in occupancy counting. Simply, camera analytics are used to count the number of people entering and leaving to ensure private and public buildings remain in compliance of maximum occupancy levels. This same camera could also be used to determine facemask compliance ensuring the well-being of those who have been counted entering the premises.</p> <p>By way of example, if we look at a DIY store, one person is needed to monitor inbound traffic and another to monitor egress traffic, and a third to supervise accuracy. Amongst these staff members, the time devoted to these tasks could easily equate to 2.25 people multiplied by 12-14 hour per day operations, multiplied by 362 prime days open for business annually, which could equal $120-160 thousand dollars per year in non-productive time required just to have the DIY store remain open.</p> <p>If we monetize this, a camera AI used for facemask compliance won’t miss a day of work, can alert employees of occupancy and facemask non-compliance, can return employees to productive usefulness, and on average, costs less than employing personnel. Multiplying this dollar value by the number of locations requiring the compliance could translate into hundreds of thousands of dollars Return of Investment (ROI).</p> <p> </p> <h3><strong>How video helps drive sales</strong></h3> <p>We’ve already covered how you can use VMS systems and modern AI to help reduce theft, so let’s cover how you can use video to help drive sales.</p> <p>With the advancements made to video security solutions, surveillance technologies can be used for more than just prevention of theft, it can also be used to make informed business decisions that can drive revenue growth.</p> <p>Security teams sharing their footage and analysis with other departments such as production, marketing and sales can help deliver business intelligence.</p> <p>Retail businesses can make informed decisions on renting prices and signages by analyzing patterns of behaviors. Using AI features such as heatmapping can help retail businesses see where the most popular routes are, where the dwell times are and how people congregate. This can help you decide where to put up signages around the building, how much to charge for rent and where to place your employees to encourage more sales – resulting in a higher ROI.</p> <p>When taking this all in consideration the cost of a video management solution looks like a small and essential investment.</p></div>
