First Quarter 2016 - Will it be the Bloodiest
Since Q1 2009?
Only 15 days into the first quarter and we've already seen over 15,000 jobs lost
and that's only two retailers. We've already seen 7-Eleven, Macy's, Walmart,
Finish Line, and yesterday Talbots wiped out their senior LP job as well. Our
prediction is that this will end up being the bloodiest quarter since the first
quarter in 2009 at the peak of the last great recession.
Warm weather, the experiential Millennial shopper, online shopping, the Amazon

Walmart is closing 269 stores, laying off thousands of employees
Walmart is closing
269 stores and laying off thousands of employees. The move will affect
more than 16,000 employees, including 10,000 in the US. The closings include
154 locations in the US - 102 of which are the company's smallest stores,
called Walmart Express, which have been in pilot since 2011. Walmart is
closing the stores to shift resources to Walmart's Supercenters and
smaller-format Neighborhood Market stores. Walmart will also shut down 23
Neighborhood Markets, 12 Supercenters, seven stores in Puerto Rico, six discount
centers, and four Sam's Clubs.
The company said it would try to place laid-off employees at other Walmart
stores. Employees who aren't hired by nearby locations will get 60 days of
pay and severance if eligible, as well as résumé and interview skills training,
the company said.
"The decision to close stores is difficult and we care about the associates who
will be impacted," Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a statement. "We invested
considerable time assessing our stores and clubs and don't take this lightly. We
are supporting those impacted with extra pay and support, and we will take all
appropriate steps to ensure they are treated well."
The retailer said it still planned to open more than 100 US stores in the next
year, including 50 to 60 Supercenters, 85 to 95 Neighborhood Markets, and seven
to 10 Sam's Club locations. Internationally, Walmart plans to open 200 to 240
stores within the next year.

Chipotle to close all stores on Feb. 8th for all-staff meeting on food safety
Embattled fast-casual restaurant chain Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) will close
all of its eateries nationwide for a few hours during the morning of Feb. 8 for
an all-staff meeting on food safety. Conducted via a live satellite feed, the
session will feature Chipotle officials thanking the company's roughly 60,000
staffers for their efforts to address recent food-bourne illness issues that
arose among some of the company's customers on the West Coast and in the Boston
area. Outlining the plan during a Wednesday investor conference in Florida,
company executives said the staff meeting would also include a discussion of new
food-safety measures Chipotle has implemented and a question-and-answer session
with employees. Chipotle will use the time for a company-wide meeting to discuss
food safety in the wake of a bout of food-borne illness issues at locations
across the country, CNN and the Wall Street Journal reported. The move comes
amid a marketing campaign beginning next month that aims to win back customers
who have stopped coming to the chain in light of the recent outbreaks, the
ORC, The Internet, and Heroin drive upward trend in shoplifting
Central Ohio shoplifters snuck off with a record amount of merchandise from
retailers in 2015, according to new statistics from the city of Columbus. The
average value of each theft increased to $151.53 from $137.29 in 2014, the
office of Columbus City Attorney Richard C. Pfeiffer Jr. reported. While more
shoplifting has occurred, more thieves are being caught and charged.
The total value of stolen merchandise recovered increased 22.7 percent, to
$695,527, in 2015, and the city attorney's prosecution division filed 4,590
theft charges, an increase of 11.2 percent from the previous year's 4,128
filings. The number of thefts over $500 also grew in the past year, Pfeiffer
Since the Ohio General Assembly raised the felony theft limit from $500 to
$1,000 in 2012, Columbus prosecutors have seen high-dollar misdemeanor thefts
more than double.
Most of the shoplifting cases in central Ohio - 4 in 5 - involved repeat
offenders who are either serial thieves or professional shoplifters, Pfeiffer
said. That number also has grown significantly over the past seven years. In
2009, 58 percent of theft charges involved repeat offenders. By 2014, that
number had surged to 81 percent, and it remained there in 2015.
The trend upward in Columbus, as in the rest of the country, can be
attributed to a number of factors, "most specifically the heroin epidemic,
organized retail crime and the ability to sell stolen merchandise easily via the
Internet," said First Assistant City Prosecutor Bill R. Hedrick.

American Apparel rejects Charney's takeover bid: source
Bankrupt teen apparel retailer American Apparel Inc's board has rejected the
latest takeover offer involving the company's controversial founder, Dov Charney,
a source told Reuters. Earlier this week, the Los Angeles-based company received
a $300 million bid from a group of investors who are backing the return of Dov
Charney. Hagan Capital Group and Silver Creek Capital Partners said their
proposal included $90 million of new equity and a $40 million term loan, and
backs a business plan from Charney, who was fired as chief executive in December
2014. American Apparel is open to a revised offer from the funds, the source
'Confidential' memo shows Deutsche Bank admitting its screwup was the reason
American Apparel employees didn't get paid last week
Deutsche Bank has admitted it screwed up on January 7 by failing to process the
US staff payroll for American Apparel, resulting in a huge number of the chain's
employees not getting paid until the following week. A copy of the memo was
obtained by Business Insider. The January 12 Deutsche Bank memo marked
"confidential" says the payroll wasn't processed for five more days due to
"human error." The incident caused a minor freakout because American Apparel is
currently going through a bankruptcy reorganisation, its sales are in decline,
and its current cash position has not been disclosed since October 31, when it
had $21 million in the bank, mostly from debt financing.

Hyatt Breach: 250 Hotels, 50 Countries
- POS Malware Checked In, Stayed For Four Months
Hyatt Hotels says it's concluded its investigation into the payment card data
breach that it first discovered in November 2015, and reports that malware
infected 250 of its locations across 50 countries.
The Chicago-based hotel chain says that anyone who used a payment card at one
of the affected properties last year from July 30 to Dec. 8 was potentially
affected. The affected properties are located everywhere from Argentina and
Armenia to the United Kingdom and Vietnam. In the United States, 100 hotels
in 26 different states were affected.
Hyatt first publicly disclosed the breach on Dec. 23. The firm tells Information
Security Media Group that it hired third-party digital forensic investigators
and information security expert Mandiant and Kroll to help it investigate the
intrusion and better lock down its security processes, procedures and
Investigators found that the malware collected data from cards used onsite -
rather than online - and that it was able to steal cardholder names, card
numbers, card expiration dates as well as internal verification codes "as the
data was being routed through affected payment processing systems," Hyatt says.
But the hotel chain doesn't believe that any other information - such as
customers' mailing addresses or email addresses - was compromised by attackers.
Hyatt says that it doesn't know exactly which type of malware hit it. The hotel
has published a
list of affected properties.
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Coming Online
The controversial Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act became law last month
after it was a last minute addition to the U.S. federal spending bill, which
means companies should start to see increasing incentives for sharing hacking
information soon, an expert said. The act, supported by much of the business
community but opposed by privacy activists and some technology firms, gives
liability protection to companies that share information with the government
about a hacking incident, ostensibly allowing better U.S. coordination against
cyber attacks. David Turetsky, a partner at law firm Akin Gump, has tracked the
litany of new federal actions and programs created by the act, which are
required to take place in the next weeks and years. He said as those programs
come online, companies will have a better experience with information exchanges,
some of which is already occurring. "Voluntary cybersecurity information sharing
is something that a number of companies engage in now and they see benefits,"
Mr. Turetsky said.
The law requires the government to set up outreach programs to coordinate the
information sharing. "Certainly in the area of cybersecurity there have been
extensive efforts to foster public private partnerships and cooperation-this
will build on that," Mr. Turetsky said. "I think that what you will see is more
and more pieces coming into play and making it more and more attractive for
companies to participate."

Greater Toronto Area - The "Shopping Triangle" for Cargo Thieves
In security circles, the Greater Toronto Area has come to be known as the
"shopping triangle" for cargo thieves who continue to wreak havoc on the
Canadian trucking industry to the tune of $5 billion per year, snapping up
everything from electronics to metals, by any means necessary.
Canada's cargo theft crisis continues to escalate, with reports to the
Insurance Bureau of Canada doubling to 400 over 2015 alone, primarily in
southern Ontario. As Canada's most targeted area, the shopping triangle is a
geographical region that's not only on organized crime's radar, but the radar of
security experts like Ron Hartman, too, who's working to empower trucking
companies through a long list of modern prevention measures.
"We all know it's a lot easier to prevent a crime than solve it," says Hartman,
speaking at a Wednesday seminar hosted by the Private Motor Truck Council of
Canada. "You must think like a criminal."
Hartman is director of security solutions for AFIMAC Global, which specializes
in cargo theft prevention. While the old school criminal methods of hijacking
cargo are alive and well, Hartman says technology has allowed for more
criminals to operate from behind the safety of a desk, utilizing online
information and applications to find new ways to infiltrate the system, and
of course, precious cargo.
One of the more recent cargo theft phenomenon is dubbed fraudulent pickups.
Essentially, criminals setup an entirely fictitious trucking company online, and
then use it to prey on shippers who don't do their homework, failing to screen
and verify data. The criminals troll load boards and make a deal. "Then that
load gets picked up and never delivered," says Hartman.
Hartman describes the cargo theft business as "low risk, low penalty, high
reward." In fact, theft is so pervasive that he estimates as much as 60
percent of these crimes go unreported, mostly out of fear over rising
insurance premiums, or corporate image. Of course, nobody likes to admit they're
Ontario Superior Court rejects Target Canada's recovery plan
Failed U.S.-owned retailer Target Canada faces yet another big setback. In an
unusual move, the Ontario Superior Court has rejected the insolvent retailer's
proposed recovery plan for its creditors. The decision late Wednesday by Justice
Geoffrey Morawetz followed stiff opposition to the proposal by major landlords
who stood to gain little in the would-be plan. Still, other creditors, including
suppliers, would have received as much as 75 to 85 per cent of their "proven"
claims. Now, Target Canada, which filed for court protection from its creditors
almost exactly a year ago - on Jan. 15, 2015 - will almost certainly have to
draw up a new plan in the case, which has squeezed a wide swath of suppliers,
landlords and other businesses.
Slumping loonie holds silver lining for Canadian retailers
as cross-border shopping expected to 'all but die'
The Canadian dollar's plunge to a 12-year low is seen boosting sales for the
country's retailers in 2016 as fewer shoppers cross the border south, but profit
growth will vary depending on their ability to control import costs and push
through price increases. The currency has lost roughly a third of its value
against the U.S. dollar since the start of 2014 as weaker prices for oil, a key
Canadian export, triggered a mild recession last year. It fell to less than 71
U.S. cents this week. In their 2016 outlook for Canada, the commercial real
estate services firm CBRE says an influx of tourists and foreign retailers such
as Nordstrom Inc. setting up shop should help spur retail sales growth despite
limp economic growth.

Edmonton, AB: 1,300 guns were reported stolen in 2015 in Alberta -
double the amount stolen in 2012
The head of the RCMP in Alberta is raising the alarm about stolen guns after the
number of firearm thefts reported to RCMP in the province swelled by more than
20 per cent in 2015. There are currently 10,000 guns listed stolen or missing in
Alberta RCMP jurisdictions. The number of stolen firearms reported to RCMP has
more than doubled since 2012. There were 1,300 guns reported stolen in RCMP
jurisdictions in Alberta in 2015 - more than three each day - not including
those reported stolen in Calgary and Edmonton. Those cities are also seeing more
guns, and more gun crime. There were 94 shootings in Calgary in 2015, nearly a
100-per-cent increase from the year before.

The fraudsters' faithful friend: will credit cards ever be safe for online
Before the birth of the credit card and advent of online shopping, transaction
fraud was rare. Fast forward to today and "plastic fraud" is rife and moreover
expected by merchants, many of whom skip straight to damage limitation rather
than trying to fight it.
As the most popular payment method after cash, fraud figures involving credit
cards have skyrocketed since the e-commerce boom of the 1990's with fraud losses
from UK-issued cards in 2014 alone.
To limit rising figures, the credit card industry has made various attempts over
the past 20 years to stop the fraudsters in their tracks, with varying degrees
With the introduction of PCI DSS (payment card industry data security standard),
merchants were required to implement security measures to secure credit card
details that they had stored or collected. Other approaches to secure online
credit card use have involved the card holder needing to provide the expiry date
and address details to verify their identity. In 3-D Secure, the industry
thought it had scored its greatest hit. During this payment process, cardholders
were redirected to the banks which issued their credit cards and asked to enter
a secret code in a pop-up window. The most recent approach to securing online
credit card transactions is known as 'tokenisation'.
The bottom line is that despite numerous efforts to make the credit card a
secure method for online payment, they have not had a lasting effect due to a
number of reasons, with fraud figures showing no signs of stabilising or
decreasing in the short-term. When it comes to card payments, there is,
unfortunately, no one solution to this dilemma, as payments initiated by
merchants which require data to be transmitted or stored in some form will
always leave a back door open for data thieves.
United States Fraud Detection & Prevention and Anti Money Laundering and Account
Takeover Market 2015-2019 - Authentication is Expected to Remain a Major Revenue
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "U.S. Fraud Detection &
Prevention and Anti Money Laundering and Account Takeover Market by Fraud
Detection & Prevention Type, by End User, By Vertical - Market Trends &
Forecasts Till 2019" report to their offering.
The number of fraud cases has been increasing. But the major concern is that the
losses caused by these incidents are increasing at high rate. Enterprises in
such circumstances are being compelled to take counter measures. Industries
engaged in transactions (mostly monetary transactions) are prime target for
fraudsters. Banking, financial sector, insurance, and public sector being such
prime targets, demand for these solutions is significantly high in these
industries. Retail, telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation, real
estate, healthcare and education are the other industries where penetration is
observed to be high.
Fraud detection & prevention and anti money laundering and account takeover
solutions and services are the offerings from IT vendors which helps enterprises
to take counter measures to fight fraud & money laundering incidents and
occurrences. These solutions detect fraud & money laundering incidents and
prevent enterprises from losing revenue. These solutions refer to the IT
solutions, systems, and services which are used to analyze the data and find
anomalies and patterns (to find deterrence from usual course), and the solutions
which regulate user access by verification and authentication along with the
services helpful in the ecosystem.
Major challenges in this market include low awareness level of fraud
possibilities in SMEs, high costs of deployments, and unavailability of
pre-deployment measures of performance. Though awareness level in SMEs is
increasing and the impact of this factor will decrease in due course of time,
the cost and pre-deployment measures would remain primary concerns in the
market. For more information visit
$140K worth of Jewelry stolen from Kohl's store in Texas
A few North Texas department stores have become a target for jewelry thieves,

Orlando, FL: 3 charged in suspected Disney ticket scheme
Undercover detectives with the Orange County Sheriff's Office have filed charges
against three people for reselling park hopper passes to Walt Disney World.
Investigators charged the 3 suspects with resale of multi-day or multi-event
tickets. According to investigators, the three were buying and then reselling
the tickets from a counter rented in a convenience store just a stone's throw
from the Disney entrance off of Highway 535. Deputies say the trio was buying
multi-day passes that still had days left on them, and then reselling them.
After the undercover deputies paid $260 cash, they were handed two passes and
told two names they were supposed to use. Investigators say they were given
specific instructions on what to do if they were approached by Disney security.

Martin's failed to take appropriate steps to prevent and respond to such an

could have protected guests in the event of an "active shooter" situation.

A lot of articles talk about "How to impress your boss" and give you tips on how
to accomplish this. But at the end of the day, it's all about supporting them,
helping them reach their objectives and not trying to merely impress them.
Impressing a person is great, but usually short lived. Supporting and helping
them reach their goals requires a long-term effort that at times can truly test
your resolve and stamina.
The thought has always been if your boss gets promoted, then you might as well
-- as long as you are the one helping them get ahead.
