“Monin tru" (a very good morning)

Welcome to 2010 and good riddance to 2009! As we journey into the year of the Tiger I am hoping that the economy will roar back, although all signs are that it will be a slow and steady recovery.

If you have been wondering like I often do about why it takes business ventures and projects longer than anticipated to be complete and make money, I came across some advice by Brian Tracy that made a lot of sense. Brian’s sub law is “everything takes longer than your best calculation.” In advising business people, he suggest that they take their very best estimate of break even for any business venture and then triple it to arrive at a more realistic number. Whenever business people follow this advice, they are amazed to find that, in spite of their best initial calculations, it indeed takes about three times longer than they thought it would to start making money. I would be interested if any of you have insights on this issue as well or have a different ‘rule of thumb.’

If you are going to be attending SHRM’s Staffing Management Conference in Orlando, Fl from April 25 thru 28th please attend my session on the Emergence of Online Reference Checking Tools.

Please be sure to check out our newest advertiser Innovative Data Solutions’ ad in the Legal Challenge column, a great new service to identify fake degree services Accredibase as well as new products by Tazwork and FRS.

Thanks again to each of you for your continued support and I wish each of your great success in 2010.

PS - “Monin tru" - a very good morning; There are over 800 distinct languages in Papua New Guinea according to Ethnologue. However, the lingua franca is called Tok Pisin (talk pidgin). It is by far the most widely spoken language.

Landmark Study Reveals US is the Fake College Capital of the World

Eyal Ben Cohen, Managing Director, Verifile Limited, a leading background screening firm in Europe, announced the release of the ‘Accredibase Report.’ Alarmingly, the US was found to be the world’s fake college capital. The Report indicates that 810 diploma mills have already been identified in the US and many more still are under investigation. The world’s second biggest concentration of fake colleges is in the UK, the Report exposes 271 bogus institutions, making the UK the center of Europe’s bogus colleges scam.

The groundbreaking report is the result of an 18-month international research project into diploma and accreditation mills – fake Universities and Colleges. The research was carried out by Verifile’s research team with the support of Cambridge University and the East of England Development Agency. Alan Contreras of Oregon’s Office of Degree Authorization, one of the national leaders aggressively challenging fake universities, calls the Accredibase Report: “…an excellent job assembling facts about the degree mill problem in the world today. In the murky world of bogus credentials and dubious evaluators, The Accredibase Report provides an example of how research in this field ought to be done.”

 EMPLOYMENT (continued)

Hiring Will Continue to Improve Slowly, Steadily

Hiring will increase in January 2010 compared with the same period in 2009, but layoffs persist in the manufacturing and service sectors as the job market continues its painfully slow recovery, according to the latest results of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE) Report. For the second consecutive month, fewer than 3 percent of employers in each sector increased wages and benefits packages for new hires in December. The LINE Report examines four key areas: employers’ hiring expectations, job vacancies, recruiting difficulty, and new-hire compensation. It is based on a monthly survey of private-sector human resource professionals at more than 500 manufacturing and 500 service-sector companies. Together, these two sectors employ more than 90 percent of the nation’s private-sector workers.

“Lyin’ King” For 2009 Is A Human Resources Executive Liars Index® Trend Is Highest In Eight Years

The 2009 “Lyin' King” is a HR executive who claimed a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from an unaccredited "diploma mill" offering "fast" degrees for having "life experience". "This year's “Lyin’ King” might be seen as the fox guarding the hen house, claiming his career in industry as offering strong HR credentials. Besides describing an emphasis in Labor Relations, he adds that he has an array of other skills in HR, including Policy Development. One might wonder whether he developed any policies requiring diligent screening of potential employees' resumes,” said Jude Werra, President of Jude M. Werra and Associates, who created his firm's Liars Index® in 1995.

For the second half of 2009 the Liars Index rose to 16.07%, with the two-year rolling average increasing to 14.82%, its highest rate in eight years. The peak rates were during the economic strains early in the last decade, where the rolling average ranged as high as 18.50%. "We hope that, considering our current strains in unemployment and job growth, we are not facing another "boom" in educational falsifications,” said Werra, “The wise employer verifies claims.”

ITRC Report: Malicious Attacks Are Now More Frequent Than Human Error

The Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) reported its annual breach data for 2009 and for the first time malicious attacks were more frequently identified as the source of those breaches than human error. In its "2009 Data Breach Report," the ITRC found 498 publicly disclosed breaches last year, down from 657 the year before. The downturn could have resulted from changes in breach disclosure, rather than a real drop-off in system compromises, the organization says. Interestingly, paper breaches now account for 26 percent of data leaks, up 46 percent compared to 2008. Malicious attacks outnumbered breaches attributed to human error for the first time in the three years the report has been compiled.

 DATA PROTECTION (continued)

Legislative Auditor Plans Follow-Up Investigation On Data Breach By Background Screening Firm

At the capitol Tuesday, legislative auditor Jim Nobles testified about a special review he's begun into the state's dealings with a Texas company hired to do employment verification. The legislative auditor has been tracking this topic since last year, when his office released a report on why the state was taking so long to comply with Gov. Pawlenty's executive order to check the immigration status and social security numbers of all new hires at state agencies. After the auditor's report came out in June 2009, the Pawlenty administration finalized a contract with Lookout Services of Bellaire, Texas to do the verification work. But there were problems. In December 2009, the state had to notify 500 new hires that their personal data -- including social security numbers -- may have been exposed on the company's Web site. The state canceled the service and Lookout Services sued for breach of contract. Nobles described one of the motivations for doing the follow-up evaluation is to establish standards for hiring private companies, particularly those handling private data.

Privacy by Design: The Gold Standard

"In light of the proliferation of emerging technologies, a comprehensive and proactive approach is required to protect privacy - an approach in which both privacy and security are effectively built into the information eco-system, throughout the entire data lifecycle," Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner Ann Cavoukian said. "Categorically rejecting talk of trade-offs, instead, embed privacy into the system." "A proactive approach is increasingly required to protect privacy today," said Commissioner Cavoukian. "Individuals are increasingly subjected to new forms of data collection from all kinds of organizations. The growth of privacy-invasive technologies such as biometrics, Radio Frequency Identifiers (RFIDs) and video surveillance has intensified the need to sharpen our focus on privacy and the best practices needed for data protection." Privacy by Design is a term that Commissioner Cavoukian coined in the '90s when she began her campaign to enlist the support of technology to protect privacy, rather than encroach upon it. "The future of privacy cannot be assured solely by compliance with regulatory frameworks; rather, privacy assurance must ideally become an organization's default mode of operation," said the Commissioner.

Controversial App Provides Background Checks On the Go

Online privacy is a constant and growing concern as the evolving landscape of Web sites and services erode the traditional expectations of privacy. A new app from BeenVerified is adding even more controversy to the privacy dilemma by enabling users to conduct background checks on anyone in a matter of seconds from their iPhone. The Background Check App is free and employers and individuals can use it to conduct up to three free background checks per week via the iPhone. Users, particularly employers who may want to conduct checks of employees, vendors, suppliers, partners, and other parties they do business with, can also subscribe to the BeenVerified service which would grant them unlimited background checks starting at only $8 per month. In the press release for the app, BeenVerified CEO Josh Levy says "A BeenVerified background check contains information collected from thousands of public records and publicly available data where the average person would not even know where to begin. All of the information found in our reports is already out there and accessible to anyone." The app has generated some controversy from opponents who feel the background checks are a violation of privacy. According to BeenVerified, though, there has been no controversy about the popularity of the app. In just three weeks since its release, approximately 400,000 users have downloaded the app, and one million checks have been run so far.

UN Issues Call For International Privacy Agreement

A UN watchdog has called for a new international agreement on privacy following a review of the expanding global array of surveillance measures and databases advanced by governments in the cause of counter-terrorism. The special rapporteur on human rights, Martin Scheinin, said the UN should create a "a global declaration on data protection and data privacy" in response. His report, delivered to the UN's Human Rights Council, describes the expansion of watchlists, border checks, financial data sharing, interception of communications, biometrics and ID registers in recent years. "States no longer limit exceptional surveillance schemes to combating terrorism and instead make these surveillance powers available for all purposes," he added. "Most worrying, however, is that these technologies and policies are being exported to other countries and often lose even the most basic protections in the process."

China Passes Privacy Protections Law

On December 26, 2009, the Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress passed a landmark new law that contains provisions affecting personal data. The new law will go into effect on July 1, 2010. The P.R.C. Tort Liability Law is a wide-ranging law that imposes tort liability for matters ranging from environmental damage to product liability to animal bites. Certain of its provisions relate, expressly or in a general sense, to personal information. These provisions can cause data users to incur liability to data subjects for the mishandling of personal information.

New Commisioner Reding To Move Swiftly On Internet Privacy

The EU's Data Protection Day on Thursday (28 January) will be the first public opportunity for the new commissioner in charge of fundamental rights, Viviane Reding, to spell out her priorities on Internet privacy, particularly regarding an upcoming review of the Data Protection Directive, officials close to the commissioner said.

The treatment of banking data or airline passengers' personal information is the subject of tough negotiations between Brussels and Washington.

2010 Pressure Mounts On Privacy Bill

Government is pushing for the draft Protection of Personal Information Bill to be enacted into law, in time for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. This is according to Mark Heyink, information attorney and information security consultant, speaking at a legal seminar at Melrose Arch. The Protection of Personal Information Bill is expected to go before Parliament early next year. The Bill was submitted to the justice minister in February this year and aims to promote the protection of personal information processed by public and private bodies. Once the Bill is passed, companies will be prohibited from giving a customer's information to any other person without the client's consent. It seeks to hold companies that do not take adequate steps to protect confidential information legally liable. Lance Michalson, partner of Michalsons Attorneys, is sceptical and says that, depending on discussions, the Bill might not make it in time for 2010. He says the current Bill's eight security principles will be debated and it will be decided whether those principles are relevant within an African context rather than based purely on European Union (EU) best practices. “Depending on how much opposition there is to the fundamental principles and whether they should be changed, it could take a while longer than previously planned.

Employee Fraud At Record High

In 2009, both employee fraud and fraud in general reached a record high, according to the latest KPMG Forensic's Fraud Barometer. The report reveals that £1.3bn of fraud cases came to court – the highest figure since KPMG began compiling data back in 1987. 2009 also saw the highest number of cases of serious fraud by managers and employees (123) since the Fraud Barometer began. There was a major increase in fraud by company managers coming to court, with £335m of cases compared to £129m in 2008. Employees also racked up far higher losses, with cases worth £232m, more than double the £100m figure for 2008. Hitesh Patel, Partner at KPMG Forensic, said: "It is essential for companies to rigorously screen potential employees and carry out proper background checks. Knowing who you employ and the extent of any risk they pose to the organisation is a key line of fraud defence."

Recession Is Over, But CMI Foresees A Radically Different Business Landscape

The UK economy has come out of recession, after figures showed it had grown by a 0.1% in the past three months of 2009, according to the Office of National Statistics, but data from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) shows the economic crisis has forced business leaders to consider changes to the way we work in Britain. The CMI's Future Forecast survey, based on the views of 1,337 managers and leaders, predicts the business landscape will look radically different in 2020. Petra Wilton, director of policy and research at the CMI, says: "Looking ahead 10 years, it seems that business leaders have learned the harsh lessons of the recession. The insular, corporate approach, blamed by so many for the economic downturn, appears to be shifting towards a more inclusive style of leadership as employers accept the commercial benefits of building an engaged workforce and working across many partners.
