2014 - The Year of the Hackers - The Mad Rush Before EMV hits the U.S.
We haven't seen anything yet! Lets hope we're wrong. But with EMV coming in Jan. 2015 the Eastern Block will be throwing everything it has at us, and this may just be the beginning. With six retailers being hit so far and over 135 million impacted - 1/3 of the total U.S. population has already been exposed. Here's some of the articles that have been popping up over the last few days and weekend.

17 yr-old Russian wrote and sold the malware used at Target and Neiman Marcus data breaches  Target Black Friday 2013: The malware that allowed Neiman Marcus and Target Black Friday data breaches came from a 17-year-old Russian national. According to MarketWatch, the creator of the malicious software was identified by California Internet security firm Intelcrawler. The name the creator of the malicious software has not yet been published. According to the blog on Intelcrawler, a St. Petersburg, Russia, teenager wrote the programming code that enabled the breach at Target and Neiman Marcus in late December. The Russian teenager allegedly sold the malware, which is called BlackPOS to cybercriminals in eastern Europe. The Target Black Friday cybercriminals have not been identified. Andrew Komarov, the CEO of Intelcrawler said the software let the cybercriminals remotely hack into Target and Neiman Marcus' electronic cash registers and steal shoppers' personal information. According to Komarov, the malware was downloaded about 60 times. Other retailers besides Target and Neiman Marcus were also hacked or might be at risk of being hacked in the future. (Source

Hackers took sneaky path into Target customers’ wallets but leave clue - one small word - "Rescator"  In early November, before the holiday-shopping season began, the hackers found what they had been looking for: a wide path into Target and beyond. Entering through a digital gateway, the criminals discovered that Target’s systems were astonishingly open, lacking the virtual walls and motion detectors found in secure networks like many banks’. Without those safeguards, the thieves moved swiftly into the company’s computer servers containing Target’s customer data and to the crown jewel: the in-store systems where consumers swipe their credit and debit cards and enter their PINs. For weeks, the invasion went undetected; the malware installed by hackers escaped whatever anti-virus protections Target had. But it appears the hackers left a few clues behind that may aid investigators. One was a small word embedded in the code: Rescator. It was the same name of the underground carding site,, where a bank official had first purchased a large number of cards before tipping off Krebs, he said. Krebs scoured the Web for clues to Rescator’s identity. In a deleted comment from August 2011, he noted Rescator introduced himself as “Hel,” one of the three founders of a defunct hacker forum called Krebs posted some of the information he learned about aliases that may be related to Rescator, tracing one of them to Odessa, Ukraine. But investigators have not publicly pinpointed the location of the criminals’ nerve center, suggesting instead that the hackers tend to move around, gather, disband and regroup. But they are monitoring the chat forums and other netherworlds where snippets of information about fake credit cards surfaces and is shared for sale on the black market. “We’re expecting this to be a major contributor, if not the primary driver of card fraud for the next 12 months,” said Alphonse Pascual, of Javelin Strategy & Research. “These cards will still be available for purchase a year from now.” (Source

Also on Friday, cybersecurity firm IntelCrawler said it has found at least six more ongoing attacks at U.S. retailers.  “The massive data breach at Target during the 2013 holiday shopping season used an inexpensive ‘off the shelf’ malware known as BlackPOS,” IntelCrawler said. “The same malware may have also been involved in the Neiman Marcus attack.” Security researchers from IntelCrawler said the author of the malware is about 17 years old and a well-known programmer of malicious code in the underground. “Several other breaches may be revealed soon,” the company said.

Retailers may face major hacking threat
The retail industry may be facing a major threat by hackers targeting sensitive consumer data held by numerous chains. According to Bloomberg, a report from security company iSight Partners says multiple groups of hackers have been targeting retailers since June 2013 using a piece of software known as Kaptoxa.

Target Sets Up Cybersecurity Group
Target Corp. on Friday said it has invested $5 million in a cybersecurity coalition and will be working with three organizations — the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, National Cyber Security Alliance and Better Business Bureaus — to advance public education around cybersecurity. The group will launch a campaign to accelerate the dialogue around cybersecurity threats and the dangers of consumer phishing scams. (Source

In wake of breaches, NRF calls for adoption of PIN-and-chip cards
The National Retail Federation is calling for the use of chip-and-PIN technology in credit and debit cards that. Experts say the technology, standard around the world, is more secure than the magnetic stripe cards that are still widely used throughout the United States. The technology has not been widely adopted in the United States, partly due to its higher cost. (Source

Target Faces Nearly 70 Lawsuits Over Breach - Could be the largest lawsuit in history  Alongside the reputational harm, retailers like Target face the risk of a slew of legal actions when hackers steal consumer data. Customers and small banks have filed 68 class action suits, in 21 states and Washington, D.C., alleging Target didn’t take proper steps to protect consumer data, according to Tina Wolfson, an attorney at Ahdoot & Wolfson P.C., who is bringing one of the cases. Ms. Wolfson provided a document tracking the cases, which was reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. “This could be the biggest case I’ve seen in number of people affected,” said Ms. Wolfson, who alleges in a complaint that Target’s “[failure] to maintain reasonable security procedures,” and delays in notifying customers, will put her clients at risk for identity theft for years. This firm also has filed on Neiman Marcus. (Source

Homeland Security Warns Retailers of ‘Sophisticated Malware’
The sophisticated malware currently affecting retailers primarily infects point-of-sale (POS) devices. Hackers obtain names, addresses and email addresses for customers, which they can generally sell for great financial gain at a later date. Once a POS is infected with malware, it monitors data processed on the device, transmits that data to outside the retailer, and then quickly deletes these records so investigators cannot determine the source of the hack.

Don't Be a Cyber Target: A Primer for Boards and Senior Management
To help start the year right, here is a D&O primer for managing a major cyber incident: Retain outside counsel experienced in managing cybersecurity incidents and ensure the forensic investigation is conducted through counsel as attorney work product. Hire a trusted advisor to provide independent advice to D&Os. Notify your insurance broker. Hire a crisis communications expert. Establish a situation room and schedule daily (perhaps more initially) meetings with leads from the executive team, legal, forensic, internal IT and security teams, communications, relevant corporate units, and the trusted advisor. Notify law enforcement and seek their assistance. Communicate with regulators, customers, and investors. Communicate with state attorneys general, consumer protection agencies, and credit bureaus. Communicate with employees. Develop a remediation plan. Do not try to divert attention by focusing on unrelated problems. Share information with others who could benefit. (Source

Shoplifting surge pushes retail crime losses to $839 million in UK
Last year also saw a "dramatic increase" in fraud and online crime, with 80% of retailers reporting a rise, including increased threats from cyber-attacks, the survey found. Losses were 166% higher than five years ago, the BRC said, despite retailers spending an average of $3.28m each on crime prevention measures. Among 30 retailers, who represent 51% of the retail sector by turnover, there were 631,391 incidents of customer theft in 2012-13, the highest level recorded in the survey for nine years. (Source

Explosion in cost of retail crime as ORC spikes in the UK
A survey by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) shows customer theft responsible for 82% of all retail crime, the greatest proportion recorded in nine years. The BRC survey also reveals a spike in organized crime as thieves “steal to order”, with the average value of theft increasing by 62% to £177 or $290.67 per incident. It showed that while burglaries fell by 49%, robberies were up 48% with people likely to travel from outside of the region to target North East stores. Not only do the figures paint a picture of retailers more at risk of violence, the financial pressure is intensifying with the cost of each incident 166% higher than before the recession in 2007. The average cost per incident of criminal damage has also jumped from $1,579.89 to $3,387.04 a rise of 114% from the previous year. However, what we have also seen is that there is a lot more serious organized crime. Although the value of the items stolen is higher, there is a more organized approach. This is what we believe is contributing to most of the increase. People are stealing to order.” (Source

E-commerce and higher operational costs put pressure on retail chains to change - An NRF Big Show session  “Freight costs and free shipping are the Achilles heel of e-commerce.” Retail chains in 2014 to exploit a key advantage of stores: the ability to offer site-to-store shipping on their e-commerce sites. That’s because shipping carriers charge less to ship to commercial addresses than they do to residential addresses, and by shipping to stores retail chains can save on fulfillment costs while also drawing consumers into their stores. With minimum wage rising the need to cut operational costs will increase and mobile may be the answer to assist a customer in finding the information she needs without consulting a store associate. Editors note: Payrolls will continue to suffer long term while everything mobile will become the key for the consumer and the associate, and a consequence will be the potential for increased theft both externally and internally - with fewer associates and management on the sales floor.

Rochester police chief warns of increase in retail thefts - It's "an epidemic"
As investigators work with federal officials, Police Chief Michael Allen believes retail thefts — from shoplifting to the use of fraudulent credit cards to obtain gift cards — are “an epidemic.” While Allen believes police have only seen the “tip of the iceberg” in the matter of organized retail theft, which is a new phenomenon to the area, he’s especially concerned with the rise in shoplifting in the past year. “The organized piece is a whole other ballgame,” Allen said, adding he expects to see more cases in the area in future. On Jan. 9, police arrested two men who allegedly had a van full of stolen goods, phony credit cards and fake driver’s licenses. (Source

Google Hires Private Security Guards for Employees Riding Buses
Google has reportedly hired private security guards to protect their employees while waiting for their ride at bus stops in San Francisco. In the past couple of days, after Google buses were bashed by protesters, two men dressed in jeans and black hoods were seen keenly eyeing passengers boarding the Gbus at one of its stops in San Francisco's Mission District. Reuters observed these two guys. Though they do not really stick out from the rest of the waiting passengers, the curly earpiece they were wearing was catchy. They were also seen writing something on a yellow stick-it pad. They also seemed alerted when the Google bus arrived and in one instance, they were seen waving to the driver. The gesture strengthened suspicions that they may be working for Google. (Source

Man and woman arrested with Target credit cards crossing the border from Mexico in McAllen, TX.  On Sunday, Polie arrested 27-year-old Mary Carmen Garcia and 28-year-old Daniel Guardiola Dominguez both from Monterrey as they tried to cross into the U.S. from Reynosa, said Police Chief Victor Rodriguez. “We received information about their activities and obtained arrest warrants for them,” Rodriguez said. “We were able to serve those warrants when they tried coming back from Mexico. During the arrest we found out that they had another stash of fraudulent credit cards on them.” Investigators believe that the credit cards that the couple was using came from the December credit card breach at Target where hackers got into the company’s computer system and took the names, credit card information and phone numbers of close to 100 million customers.

Gamestop robber called ahead to 'pre-order' loot  Surveillance video showed the man arrive last Wednesday morning about 10 a.m. to a Gamestop store in Madison in a Nissan Versa. The car circled the parking lot for more than an hour before the driver eventually worked his way close. Then, police said, he did something odd. He called the store and told the clerk he needed games and a system for a gift but was on his way to work, so would need the order ready to pick up when he arrived. Once the crook walks inside, he is seen on security video pulling a black semi-automatic handgun on the clerk before grabbing a bag full of his pre-ordered goodies, including an Xbox 1 and $200 worth of kid-friendly games to go with it, plus about $600 from the cash register. The suspect then forced the clerk onto the ground before running out. (Source

California nut farmers band together to fight theft
The soaring value of California’s nut crops is attracting a new breed of thieves who have been making off with the pricey commodities by the truckload, recalling images of cattle rustlers of bygone days. This harvest season in the Central Valley, thieves cut through a fence and hauled off $400,000 in walnuts. An additional $100,000 in almonds was stolen by a driver with a fake license. And $100,000 in pistachios was taken by a big rig driver who left a farm without filling out any paperwork. Investigators suspect low-level organized crime may have a hand in cases, while some pilfered nuts are ending up in Los Angeles for resale at farmers markets or disappear into the black market.

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.
