NYPD Commissioner William
Bratton Joins LP Community
at Annual Downing & Downing Dinner Event
For over 20 years, Downing & Downing has hosted the loss
prevention industry's signature new year's event, bringing together retail LP
teams and solution providers from the Northeast and throughout the
country during the annual NRF Big Show in New York City. The
popularity of the D&D Daily and the Loss Prevention News Network (LPNN) has
helped make the event even bigger in recent years, drawing larger crowds,
educational value, and more prominent industry figures. With "America's Top Cop"
- NYPD Commissioner William Bratton - speaking at this year's dinner, "Live
in NYC 2016" proved to be our biggest event yet!
Commissioner Bratton arrived to a packed house on Monday evening, January 18th,
where dinner guests greeted him with a gracious round of applause. Bratton spent
time meeting and taking pictures with LP teams and solution providers in
attendance. He then spoke to the crowd about the ORC problems, efforts and
concerning the retail industry - including active shooters,
terrorism, retail's label as a "soft target" and what we can all do to help
in these efforts. As one of the founders and huge supporters of Los Angeles' ORC
Association, Bratton has been a driving force behind helping to establish New
York City's new Metro ORC Association. And his passion for the topic certainly
showed in his speech to the audience.
Rarely do we have the opportunity to hear from one of the most notable and
accomplished law enforcement executives in the United States. And given the
current state of affairs and all of our concerns about the safety of our
employees, customers and the nation as a whole, we were absolutely thrilled and
honored that he took the time to meet with us.
We were able to film Commissioner Bratton's speech during the event, and we
will be airing it in the near future through our LPNN channel here on the Daily.

This year's honoree was Rosamaria Sostilio, Senior Vice President of Asset
Protection for HBC - a true leader who has earned the respect and admiration of
her peers throughout her 25+ years in the loss prevention industry. Following
Commissioner Bratton's speech at the dinner, Gus Downing, Publisher & Editor of
the D&D Daily, presented Sostilio with a commemorative plaque marking the
achievement. Sostilio accepted the award and gave a short speech to the crowd,
where she expressed gratitude for
the honor and appreciation to the industry which she has undoubtedly made her mark on.

American Apparel Founder Dov Charney Loses Court Bid to Return
Dov Charney, the ousted founder of American Apparel, on Monday lost his latest
bid to regain control of the troubled retailer. Judge Brendan L. Shannon of the

was necessary to allow American Apparel to emerge from bankruptcy and start on
Blizzard Hits Hard, But Might Open Outerwear Opportunity
Retail - and almost everything else but the snowplows - ground to a halt
Saturday as a massive blizzard laid down what could ultimately be as much as two
feet of snow from Washington to New York. With the snow still falling and high
winds - and, in some cases, authorities' bans on travel - keeping most indoors,
economic forecasters predicted Saturday that the storm would ultimately cost the
region $750 million to $850 million on the high end.

The Top 3 Security Threats for 2016
Every year, new threats to technology security crop up, from viruses and remote
hacking, to skimmers and Trojans. What should you be keeping an eye on in 2016?
Here are the top three security threats.
Data breaches. This isn't new but
retailers should not become lax in this area. Major retailers will continue to
see hackers going after payment information, but with the switch to EMV chip
terminals and mobile payment systems, hackers will likely turn to easier
pickings, such as medical data.
Ransom ware. Again, not a new threat, but a
serious one. Ransom ware is a computer virus that locks your files and will
unlock them when you pay a ransom. The FBI is even telling victims to shell out
the money to get their files back. This type of threat can freeze files on a
network, as well as individual computers, smartphones and tablets. The good news
is that ransom ware needs its victims to install the virus by clicking
malevolent downloads or links. Also backing up files regularly is good practice
for recovery after such an event.
Browser plug-ins. With many of us spending lots of time online in a Web
browser, it's no surprise that hackers are looking for ways to infect computers
through this portal. This year, more attacks via browser plug-ins, such as Adobe
Flash/Animate, are highly likely.
The CISO's Role in Fighting Extortion
- How Emerging Attacks Are Putting New Pressure on Security Teams
Extortion campaigns waged by cybercriminals, such as the distributed
denial-of-service group known as DD4BC, are expected to become even more
damaging in 2016, says John Miller, director of the ThreatScape cybercrime
division at iSight Partners. In this interview with Information Security Media
Group, Miller explains why extortion campaigns involving threats of DDoS attacks
or data exfiltration are putting additional pressures on CISOs to enhance
internal network and database protections, as well educate employees about
extortionists' attack techniques. Senior executives and boards will demand that
CISOs understand emerging extortion threats and develop multistep plans aimed at
mitigating risks, he adds.
"Based on the trend that we have seen in the last year, we'd say that almost
any sector, and especially prominent organizations within those sectors, could
be victimized by one of these attacks," he says. "Any organization should
have at least thought through what they need to do in the event they have to
deal with one of these incidents."
Fraud dollars lost to Check Fraud up 29% YoY
Check fraud - it not only won't go away, but it is morphing to keep pace with
consumers' digital banking habits. David Barnhardt of Early Warning talks about
this persistent fraud threat and how banking institutions should respond to it.
Although the number of checks written by consumers has decreased significantly,
the reverse is true about dollars lost to check fraud, says Barnhardt, Vice
President of Product Marketing. "We observe a 29 percent increase in fraud
dollars [lost to check fraud] year over year," Barnhardt says. "Yes, checks are
declining - caveat: for small dollars - [but] check fraud is still ever-present,
and we still see check fraud losses continue to rise."
Point-Of-Sale Drone Registration Wouldn't Fly, FAA Told
A retail trade association has urged the Federal Aviation Administration not to
change its rule allowing small drone users to register an aircraft up until its
first flight, saying a switch that would instead require immediate registration
when users purchase a drone would raise significant privacy concerns. In public
comments last week, the Retail Industry Leaders Association said a switch to a
so-called point-of-sale registration would force retailers to be part of a
process in which information about buyers could be compromised. "RILA believes
that customers' personal information will be better protected by ensuring
retailers are not unnecessary middlemen in the process," the group wrote. The
FAA unveiled in December its first-ever registration process for small unmanned
aircraft, saying new buyers after the rule took effect would have to complete
registration before their drone's first flight.

XSS Bug in Magento Allows Attackers to Take Over Online Shops
The Magento project has released patches to fix a critical security bug in the
CMS that's powering a large chunk of online shops all over the Internet. The bug
is a stored XSS (cross-site scripting) vulnerability that can be exploited when
registering a new user account or when users are changing their current
account's email address.
The problem lies in how the CMS sanitizes the data entered in the email field
for customers. As cyber-security vendor Sucuri has discovered, the email is not
sufficiently filtered for bad characters. This improper data filtering mechanism
allows attackers to enter malicious code alongside their email address. The bug
is easy to exploit by any skilled attacker. If an attacker then makes an order
from an account with a poisoned email address, when the site's admin opens the
order in the backend, the malicious code will also get executed.
admin's cookies and use them to illegally access the site later on. Other
actions can also be carried out, and the attack's capabilities depend on the
attacker's skills. On Sucuri's own vulnerability severity scale, the bug is
rated with a score of 7 out of 10.
Shoppers want their online orders faster
Online shoppers in the U.S. want more shipping options, and they want to receive
their online orders faster than many retailers offer to deliver them, according
to a survey from fulfillment software vendor Temando.
Temando's data found that 80% of shoppers surveyed want same-day shipping, while
61% want their packages even faster-within 1-3 hours of placing an order. In the
study, titled "State of Shipping in Commerce 2016," Temando surveyed 1,000
consumers on their online shopping preferences and 214 retailers selling online
and offline across various product categories in October 2015. Most retailers
surveyed were in the small to midsized range, with 76% of all retailers surveyed
shipping 1,000 or fewer online orders per week.

Arlington, TX: Thousands in Stolen Goods discovered during Pot Bust When
investigators raided a south Arlington home last week, much of the initial
attention was paid to the unexpected discovery of a marijuana-growing operation
in the backyard. Department of Public Safety agents found nearly 100 plants in
an underground lair that was covered with a wooden deck as a disguise. But
according to a search warrant filed in Tarrant County, the actual target of the

Magnum Drive investigators recovered at least 280 pairs of Nike shoes; dozens of
guns; 85 foot-massagers; speakers; and a long list of other items. Neighbors
remain stunned and confused that such an extensive theft operation occurred
