McAfee CEO Chris Young steps down, Peter Leav to take over

Chris Young is out as McAfee CEO, and Peter Leav is in.

McAfee appointed Leav to the role of CEO on Friday, succeeding Young, who “has decided to step down” according to a statement from the cybersecurity vendor.

McAfee said Young will remain in an advisory role during the transition period and will become a senior advisor at TPG Capital, which acquired a majority stake in the vendor from Intel in 2016. Leav will be appointed to the cybersecurity company’s board of managers when he joins on Feb. 3.

Leav has CEO experience in his most recent two roles at BMC Software and Polycom. He also previously held leadership roles at NCR Corporation and Motorola.

As McAfee CEO, Young led the initiative to spin out the company from Intel, after joining the chip maker two years earlier and serving as senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security Group. Intel had purchased McAfee in 2010 for $7.7 billion in an effort to beef up its security presence. TPG maintains a 51% stake in McAfee, while the other 49% belongs to other stakeholders including Thoma Bravo and Intel.

Eric Parizo, senior analyst at Ovum, called the move “absolutely shocking,” adding that, “While McAfee characterized the change as being Young’s decision to step down, there’s little doubt that Young was essentially fired.”

Parizo credited Young for much of the progress the vendor has made in recent years. “It’s unfortunate because Young has been the architect of a largely successful multiyear effort to renovate McAfee top to bottom,” he said. “From the launch of its MVISION cloud-based product portfolio to its new brand and revamped go-to-market strategy, McAfee today is more competitive than it’s been in years, thanks to Young’s efforts.”

Parizo also said Leav’s appointment could spell out TPG’s future plans for McAfee.

“Leav is a veteran technology executive, but his expertise lies in resuscitating struggling companies like BMC and Polycom and ultimately preparing them for sale,” he said. “I expect the same pattern to play out here; making a sale or other transaction involving McAfee increasingly likely. Even an acquisition by or combination with NortonLifeLock, which seemed farfetched until yesterday, is no longer out of the realm of possibility.”

As hiring booms, HR survey raises warning for recruiters

The U.S. labor market data Friday, which showed a gain of 266,000 jobs, called out a few areas as high growth. It cited “notable job gains” in healthcare and professional and technical services. They are two areas that pose big challenges for recruiters, according to a new HR survey.

Professional services firm PwC surveyed 10,000 U.S. workers — all professionals — either in the workforce or looking for work. A key finding in the HR survey data was this: Almost half, 49%, of the professionals surveyed have turned down an offer due to a bad recruiting experience.

They identified themselves as prospective candidates who were made offers but still rejected the job, the HR survey reported.

There are reasons for the high rejection rate, according to Bhushan Sethi, the global people and organization leader at PwC. It could be the result of a lengthy recruiting process, inconsistencies in the attitudes of the people prospective employees met with, or repeated requests for documentation, such as work authorizations.

Sethi said that candidate experience is often thought of as a technology problem. But it’s the more human elements, such as a timely follow-up with candidates, that could be the source of the blame. Candidates, especially those who “probably have multiple choices for their future employment,” want human interaction throughout the recruiting process, Sethi said.

Professional jobs see large gains

Will there be a sector of the workforce that will trade their transparency — so you understand everything about them — for a better opportunity?
Bhushan SethiGlobal people and organization leader, PwC

The government labor report said that employment in professional and technical services increased by 31,000 last month and by 278,000 over the last 12 months. The labor category comprises workers who perform professional, scientific and technical activities for others. It includes accounting, architectural and engineering services, as well as computer design services, among others.

Sethi said organizations need consistent and transparent recruiting processes.

Separately, 62% of professionals want to work at firms committed to improving workplace diversity and inclusion. Social issues, such as climate change, are part of this, and employee activism has been on the rise, publicly and internally.

Candidates are willing to sacrifice higher pay for opportunities like these, Sethi said. They are “willing to trade salary for good work experience and a place that aligns with their own values.” This includes upskilling or training opportunities.

Candidates are willing to make tradeoffs

A surprising finding in the HR survey data is the willingness of candidates to share social media data, if it helps get a good job. Just over 60% said they would give a prospective employer access to social media data now kept private.

“Will there be a sector of the workforce that will trade their transparency — so you understand everything about them — for a better opportunity?” Sethi said. The survey suggested candidates might be willing to make that tradeoff, but few firms are asking for social media access, he said.

Companies that invest in virtual reality as part of the candidate experience may see a payoff. The survey indicated that 62% “say they’re more likely to consider taking a role if they had a chance to experience the actual job through technology.”

Vendor 3PM uses AI and analytics to prevent Black Friday fraud

The months and weeks leading up to Black Friday, one of the most hectic shopping days of the year, keeps e-commerce intelligence vendor 3PM Solutions busy.

“This is a very important time,” said Rob Dunkel, CEO of 3PM.

More people buy products and more retailers and individuals sell products online on Black Friday than on any other day, and the number of counterfeit products listed for sale skyrockets, Dunkel said. Chicago-based 3PM, with its platform built to collect, change and then analyze unstructured data, identifies potentially counterfeit products for its e-commerce clients so they can crack down on Black Friday fraud.

Founded in 2013, 3PM sells software that automatically combs through products and reviews to give its e-commerce clients a better snapshot of what customers are purchasing and why, as well as to protect brands and identify and take down counterfeit or misrepresented items.

The 3PM platform automatically scrapes public data off e-commerce websites, such as Amazon and eBay, Dunkel explained. Data includes customer reviews, product images and descriptions, and buyer and seller information.

No APIs are used, he said — instead, the platform collects data as it appears on e-commerce dealers’ websites using machine learning and natural language processing. The collected data is then brought into the platform and structured for its clients, some of which include major e-commerce players.

The process is continuous and encompasses billions of online product listings.

Google AI

Black Friday fraud, shopping
AI and analytics help prevent online shopping fraud on Black Friday and all year

The vendor uses a host of Google Cloud products to support its platform. A few years ago, 3PM left AWS for the Google Cloud Platform, after seeing the capabilities of Google Cloud Bigtable, a scalable, fully managed NoSQL database.

The database product was in beta testing then, Dunkel said. But, with its ability to handle huge workloads, it seemed perfect for 3PM.

Also, Dunkel said, 3PM was drawn to Google for its machine learning and AI products and tools available on the cloud.

Google Cloud Vision AI, alongside Google Cloud TPU, gives 3PM the ability to automatically classify and match images, for example.

“We’re heavy users of Google AI,” Dunkel said.

Preventing Black Friday fraud

Analyzing products in search of counterfeits is particularly important around Black Friday. Due to the sudden, massive increase in buyers and sellers during this holiday period, Black Friday fraud is common.

Using its platform, 3PM can identify fraudulent products for its clients and partners generally within four hours, Dunkel claimed. He offered an example.

Game of Thrones: Season 8 comes out on DVD and Blu-ray soon. Given the popularity of the show, and the expected demand for the season, it’s inevitable that some sellers will purposely mislist similar products to make them appear to be Season 8, to trick potential buyers. They could, for example, use clever descriptors or images to pass off a poster of Season 8 for the DVD.

So, said Dunkel, “We’ve been able to train the system to understand each title” of the different products, to automatically identify from the title what the product is.

We’re able to build and train our models to understand what is good and what is not.
Rob DunkelCEO, 3PM Solutions

Moreover, the platform can identify and compare a product listing’s image to a known image of the product, and scan for discrepancies using image recognition. Models can also read the descriptors and listing categories and compare them with other listings or with what the category is known to be. In the case of the Game of Thrones: Season 8, a category might be DVD. If the product lists as something else, 3PM issues a warning.

“We’re able to build and train our models to understand what is good and what is not,” Dunkel said.

The platform can also analyze product reviews. On certain e-commerce sites, third-party sellers can change their listings. They may have listed a specific product that racked up many positive reviews, but later changed the listing to a completely different product. Yet, the reviews stayed.

At first glance, then, the product seems to have high reviews. By reading through the reviews, it may become clear that the positive reviews were meant for a different product altogether. The 3PM platform can automatically read through reviews, and comb through the history of the listing, to detect that, Dunkel said.

While most Black Friday sellers are honest, Dunkel emphasized the importance of watching for Black Friday fraud.

“With Black Friday, with all the people shopping, consumers need to be more diligent,” he said. “Consumers need to take more steps to make sure they are buying an authentic product.”

Russian intelligence officers indicted for DNC hack

The Department of Justice announced Friday the indictment of 12 members of Russia’s GRU intelligence agency in relation to the 2016 breaches of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The grand jury indictment, which is part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election, claimed the 12 intelligence officers were engaged in a “sustained effort” to hack into the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Clinton campaign. The DNC hack led to confidential emails becoming public via WikiLeaks, which negatively impacted the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party.

The grand jury indictment alleged the Russian intelligence officers, operating under the online personas “DCLeaks” and “Guccifer 2.0,” leaked information through another entity known as “Organization 1.” The indictment does not mention WikiLeaks by name.

The Justice Department claimed that in 2016, members of Unit 26165 in the Russian government’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) began spearphishing campaign officials and volunteers for Clinton’s presidential campaign; intelligence officers were able to steal usernames and passwords and use those credentials to obtain confidential emails and compromise other systems. The threat actors used similar techniques in the DNC hack as well as the breach of the DCCC’s network.

In addition, the Justice Department claimed Unit 26165, with members of the GRU’s Unit 74455, conspired to release the stolen emails and data in order to influence the election. According to the Department of Justice, Unit 74455 also “conspired to hack into the computers of state boards of elections, secretaries of state, and US companies that supplied software and other technology related to the administration of elections to steal voter data stored on those computers.”

The indictment accused the following individuals of being part of Unit 26165 and Unit 74455, and engaging in the DNC hack and other malicious activity: Viktor Borisovich Netyksho, Boris Alekseyevich Antonov, Dmitriy Sergeyevich Badin, Ivan Sergeyevich Yermakov, Aleksey Viktorovich Lukashev,  Sergey Aleksandrovich Morgachev, Nikolay Yuryevich Kozachek, Pavel Vyacheslavovich Yershov, Artem Andreyevich Malyshev, Aleksandr Vladimirovich Osadchuk, Aleksey Aleksandrovich Potemkin and Anatoliy Sergeyevich Kovalev.

The 12 GRU officers are accused of 11 criminal counts, including criminal conspiracy against the United States “through cyber operations by the GRU that involved the staged release of stolen documents for the purpose of interfering with the 2016 president election”; aggravated identity theft; conspiracy to launder money; and criminal conspiracy for attempting to hack into certain state boards of elections, secretaries of state, and vendors of U.S. election equipment and software.

The Justice Department emphasized there is “no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election,” and no allegation that any American was a knowing participant in the alleged criminal activity.
