President Calls on Congress to Pass Cybersecurity legislation 
President Obama urged Congress in his State of the Union address to pass legislation to better meet the evolving cyberthreat, but spent very little of the speech explaining its dangers or detailing his cybersecurity legislative agenda. Indeed, of the 6,766 words in the Jan. 20 address, only 113 dealt with cybersecurity: "No foreign nation, no hacker, should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets or invade the privacy of American families, especially our kids. So we're making sure our government integrates intelligence to combat cyberthreats, just as we have done to combat terrorism. And tonight, I urge this Congress to finally pass the legislation we need to better meet the evolving threat of cyber-attacks, combat identity theft and protect our children's information. That should be a bipartisan effort. If we don't act, we'll leave our nation and our economy vulnerable. If we do, we can continue to protect the technologies that have unleashed untold opportunities for people around the globe." During the address, when he proposed action on his cybersecurity legislative package, members of Congress from both sides of the aisle gave Obama a standing ovation. Obama spent a good part of the previous week promoting his cybersecurity agenda, which includes encouraging businesses to share cyberthreat information with the government and other businesses and nationalizing data breach notification.   govinfosecurity.com

Security priorities shifting to preventing breaches, improving internal controls
For the first time, companies are worried more about preventing a breach than on passing a compliance audit -- and are spending the money to prove it, according to a new global survey of IT and business managers. In fact, compliance was in fifth place as a driver of security spending, after preventing a breach, protecting intellectual property, protecting finances and other assets, and meeting customer requirements. csoonline.com

Starboard pushing Staples to merge with Office Depot
Activist investor Starboard Value LP called for office-supply chains Staples Inc and Office Depot Inc to merge, saying a combined company would lead to greater savings. A merger will result in synergies of at least $2 billion, more than doubling operating profits, Starboard's founder and Chief Executive Jeffrey Smith wrote in a letter to Staples' Chief Executive Ronald Sargent on Tuesday. However, Staples would reject Starboard's proposition due to antitrust concerns, the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The FTC would either outright clear or block such a deal, and would not ask for store divestitures, Keeley said. yahoo.com

Target's exit from Canada will be 'rapid' - Before the end of April
Shoppers will begin to see deep discounts on apparel, household essentials and home décor items among thousands of other products at Target Canada in about a couple of weeks' time, a spokesperson confirmed Tuesday. "We do expect that to begin in about 2-3 weeks," spokesperson Eric Hausman said in an email message. Liquidation sales will be followed on fast by store closures, experts suggest. Analysts at Desjardins Securities said Tuesday all 133 Target locations across Canada will likely be closed by the early spring, or just two years after the U.S. retailer launched in Canada. The Canadian chain said it will pay employees for up to 16 weeks of work, or to May 7, as it winds down operations.  globalnews.ca

Collaborative partnering between Law enforcement, retail loss prevention, and eBay's Asset Protection team leads to prison time for truck driver and his associate

A Florida man and a Kannapolis, N.C., woman have been sentenced to federal prison after pleading guilty to an interstate theft conspiracy involving a designer brand and eBay. Federal authorities say Gewan Ramtahal, 35, of Broward County, Fla., and Debbie Caricola, 59, of Peace Haven Road, Kannapolis, conspired together to steal more than $400,000 worth of Tory Burch merchandise and sell it on eBay, according to court documents. Ramtahal was sentenced Friday to 18 months in prison, and Caricola was sentenced Thursday to year and one day in prison. Ramtahal, who worked for a trucking company, drove Tory Burch items -- including designer handbags, shoes, dresses, eyeglasses and other apparel -- from New York to Florida for distribution. From November 2012 to November 2013, prosecutors say, Ramtahal stole about 1,508 Tory Burch items out of his shipments and mailed them to Caricola, who sold them at a discount to the highest bidder on eBay. She then transferred a percentage of the profit to Ramtahal. The estimated retail value of the stolen items was $447,820. Authorities recovered more than $200,000 in U.S. currency and more than 120 unsold Tory Burch items from Caricola's home at the time of her arrest.

The Carrier Security Audit Committee is a newly formed group of Loss Prevention/Security executives representing diverse industries such as pharmaceutical, big box, specialty, grocery, shippers and others with a common interest in securing their Supply Chains by adding increased focus on the "final-mile" delivery.

Under the authority of the International Supply Chain Protection Organization (ISCPO), the committee's objective is to achieve a unified voice in carrier security standards and create an industry carrier audit that can be incorporated into our own respective compliance programs.

The ISCPO's carrier audit will differ from other industry recognized assessments already in circulation as it will focus on internal controls that directly impact day-to-day loss or performance issues experienced such as POD and scan integrity. In turn, the ISCPO is interested in endorsing those carriers who embrace and comply with the audit standards set forth.

If you are interested in representing your organization in this project, please contact our Recruitment Officer - Christopher Coffey, CFI Christopher.Coffey@sephora.com or Committee Chairman - Wes Bank, LPC Wes.Bank@DHL.com

Avoiding Ecommerce Fraud and Its Implications in 2015
Online retail is stronger than ever, with the holiday spending spree in November and December up 15% over 2013, according to comScore. Yet with the ever-increasing opportunities of ecommerce comes the ever-present threat of fraud. As hard as merchants work to improve their conversion rates and develop their business, fraudsters work just as hard to steal some of those profits away. What can merchants do to protect themselves and their business from fraud?
Stay Up To Date: It's no good fighting fraud with the methods that worked five or ten years ago. Fraudsters are fast and creative, and know all those techniques probably better than you do, and how to get around them.
Big Data Is a Big Help: Big data, with its fascinating trends and patterns, can help prevent fraudsters from slipping through your checkout process if it's used in the right way. It can also help to avoid false positives because it makes it easier to take each customer on their own merits.
Don't Let Fraud Fighting Turn Away Customers: The sorts of stringent rule-based systems which turn away genuine customers because they share certain characteristics with fraudsters - which may be more common than you think - also affect your conversion rates.
Fraud Prevention Must Be Flexible: Include fraud prevention as part of your 2015 ecommerce plan. multichannelmerchant.com

This tool makes it easier for thieves to empty bank accounts
Web browsers relay a variety of data to websites, including a computer's OS, its time zone, language preference and version numbers for software plugins. When those parameters change, along with others such as an IP address, it may mean an account is being fraudulently accessed. To prevent being locked out of an account, fraudsters can use a variety of methods to appear legitimate when browsing by using virtual machines and special browser plugins. But an enterprising developer has developed a software package that makes spoofing a browser fingerprint much easier. Called FraudFox VM, the software is a special version of Windows with a heavily modified version of the Firefox browser that runs on VMware's Workstation for Windows or VMware Fusion on OSX. What FraudFox aims to do is make it faster and easier to change a browser's fingerprint to one that matches that of the victim whose account they're going to exploit, or simply mix up their own digital crumbs when browsing. pcworld.com

Credit card fraud suspect shot in Safeway parking lot by Scottsdale police dies
They say Carr had a long criminal history in Arizona and Illinois, including armed robbery, aggravated assault and drug charges. Police also say Carr served prison sentences for armed robbery and other crimes. Carr was shot in the chest by police last week when officers say he tried to run them over while busting an alleged credit card fraud ring.

They say the other suspects are facing charges related to identity theft and credit card fraud.  fox10pheonix.com

$25 Million dollar ID theft ring busted in Jacksonville, FL  All it took was one phone call to unravel a multi-million dollar scam. The case began when a company called authorities to report that an $85,000 check it was expecting in the mail, never arrived. "That $85,000 check ballooned into a $25 million ID theft investigation," said U.S. Postal Inspector Darnell Edwards. Postal inspectors say one of the suspects was stealing checks, usually for large sums, right out of the mail. "They would slightly alter the name on the check to throw off the scent if you will," explained Edwards. For example, if the company was called ABCD, they would make it ABCD Incorporated. "They would go to the bank and indicate they were the owner or president of the company. They would open the business account, several days later they would deposit the fairly large check, they would draw down the account as quickly as they could," Edwards explained. In addition to opening up checking accounts, the suspects were also getting fraudulent credit cards in the names of the bogus businesses. One suspect agreed to allow postal inspectors to search his home. Investigators found plenty of evidence including 300 credit cards. "They were all sectioned off into sevens," said Edwards. "One for each day of the week. So Sunday, they would swipe x amount of credit cards for x amount of dollars, Monday, Tuesday." news4jax.com

WCSO Arrests Four Individuals Involved in Organized Retail Theft Ring that hit Saks Fifth Ave.  On Jan. 19, Walton County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call reporting a shoplifting incident at Silver Sands Premium Outlets in Sandestin.

Clay County, FL Deputies arrest 2 people accused of gift card scam  A man and a woman were caught using fraudulent credit cards at the BJ's off Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office. Deputies said the man and woman purchased cigarettes using a stack of gift cards. "From the best we can gather right now, they were provided a stack of gift cards in order to purchase cigarettes -- what we assume to sell on the black market," said CSCO Lt. Shawn Gordon. The manager called deputies because he said the pair was acting "suspicious." Once deputies arrived they said the male suspect showed them a fake ID before running off. They caught him shortly after in a nearby wooded area. Deputies said they believe the two were not from Clay County, or even the Jacksonville area. They believe the two traveled to the area to pull off the scam. "There's so many scams going on involving gift cards," Gordon said. "People are selling their gift cards, from my understanding. You just have to be mindful when you have your gift cards, if you're just laying them around, so people don't pick them up and steal them." news4jax.com

Man Dubbed 'Braveheart Bandit' Accused Of Multiple Store Thefts in Columbus, OH  Retail thefts are costing stores more than ever before. According to the city attorney's office, theft charges were slightly down in 2014. But, the average value of each theft increased from about $128 to $137.

One suspect that the office singled out was 21-year-old Christopher Peters. Peters has been dubbed the "Braveheart Bandit" because of a blue tattoo across his face. According to the city attorney's office, Peters was caught stealing eight times in 2014. He is currently wanted on three outstanding warrants. A news release states that Peters stole more than $322 worth of merchandise from Home Depot in March, a $380 vacuum cleaner from Anderson's in April, and additional Dysons valued at $849 from Target. In April, he stole $220 worth of clothes from Old Navy. 10tv.com

Checkpoint Systems Expands Counterpoint iD Point-of-Sale Deactivation Solutions

Process RFID, Dual RF/RFID Labels at POS;
Enhance Merchandise Availability, Customer Experience

NEW YORK - Jan. 12, 2015 - Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced here at NRF's Annual Convention & EXPO the latest additions to its Counterpoint iD (CPiD) point-of-sale (POS) deactivation solutions which address the needs of specialty apparel and department stores for Merchandise Visibility and loss prevention.

In addition to the current Counterpoint iD-RF electronic article surveillance solution already widely used and well-known by leading retailers globally, Checkpoint is introducing Counterpoint-RFID (CPiD-RFID) and Counterpoint iD Dual (CPiD-Dual) for RFID and dual RF/RFID POS deactivation needs, respectively.

Given retailers' increasing reliance on RFID for inventory accuracy and loss prevention, the new CPiD solutions address a critical challenge retailers face in integrating these key business processes with POS transactions. With its compelling benefits including 99%+ item level inventory accuracy in store operations as well as for use as a loss prevention solution, retailers have sought a way to leverage RFID at the POS and enhance the consumer's shopping experience. Their objectives include streamlining customer transactions at the POS, maintaining inventory accuracy and deactivating RFID labels on purchased merchandise to ensure alarm integrity. With multiple configuration and deactivation options, Checkpoint's CPiD family is designed to meet retailers' needs at POS regardless of their RFID adoption strategy and label formats.

The CPiD family of Solutions

CPiD-RFID enables retailers to process RFID tags at POS for better merchandise visibility by triggering reorders/restocking when needed. It also enables RFID-based EAS functionality by altering label data or by "virtual deactivation," a process by which the item is uniquely identified as sold in the inventory system so that the alarm at the exit door does not sound, although the label itself does not need to be altered. A patented antenna at POS is designed to prevent nearby labels from being read, written, or killed, to significantly reduce stray reads and improve POS accuracy.
