RILA to testify at Congressional data breach hearing
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) will testify Tuesday, Jan. 27 at the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade hearing, "What are the Elements of Sound Data Breach Legislation." In his testimony, Brian Dodge, executive VP at RILA, will focus on retailers' priority of supporting a strong preemptive federal data breach law that allows for reasonable and clear notice triggered by potential customer harm. RILA will urge the committee to consider data breach legislation that creates a single national notification standard with a reasonable timetable for notification. RILA will also ask that legislation provide flexibility in the method of notification, ensure notice is required only when there is reasonable belief a breach will cause harm, establish a precise definition of personal information, include a calibrated data security standard, and ensure fair, consistent, and equitable enforcement of a data breach law. Editors Note: Make sure you watch the Daily's recent LPNN video 'Cybersecurity - The Never Ending Threat' reposted today after running all last week. Filmed 'Live' two weeks ago during the 'Daily's Live in NYC' event Jan. 12th. for the complete story on what RILA and the NRF are doing to help fight this national problem and find out what Loss Prevention's role really is in helping to fight the problem. chainstoreage.com

NRF Reiterates Support for Federal Data Breach Notification Standard
The National Retail Federation reiterated its long-standing support for a federal data breach notification standard today as a congressional panel held a hearing on this issue, saying legislation should provide consumers with clear, concise and consistent notice whenever and wherever a data breach occurs. "A single uniform national standard for notification of consumers affected by a breach of sensitive data would provide simplicity, clarity and certainty to both businesses and consumers alike," NRF Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French said. For the past decade, NRF has called on Congress to pass a federal data breach notification law that would cover all entities that receive, handle and maintain sensitive personal information. NRF believes a national standard would provide retailers a practical framework to handle consumer notification and must preempt the 47 disparate state data breach notification laws retailers now comply with. nrf.com

Retailer to Watch: At Home Group Inc. - Slowly Building Momentum & Backed by one of the founders of Home Depot - LP Jobs in the future?  At Home, formerly known as Garden Ridge, has 81 locations across the country with 21 in Texas. These 120,000 square feet stores are quietly and quickly calling JC Penney, Kmart, Sears, and any other big box retailer the minute they announce store closures and they know exactly the locations they want before they make the call. They're scouting the U.S. for stores and deals where others are closing. Their CEO, who sits on the Ownership Advisory Group for the Dallas Stars (Arena Football Team) is the former COO for Gap Brand and former President of Nike Affiliates. Arthur Blank, the co-founder of Home Depot and owner of the Atlanta Falcons is reportedly a big investor and obviously with two executives of this caliber and experience together building this retailer this is one you've got to watch. Because it means LP jobs long term. Right now they've got Peter Corsa a former Gap Sr. Dir of LP and Operations who's their CSO and Rick Beardsley as their Director of LP, Safety and Risk Management. Interestingly enough they both joined the company in 2013 and that in and of itself is an indicator of how they're building for the future. A strong team that will be building a program long term and that once again means LP jobs. bizjournals.com

U.S. Retail Workers #1 in Employee Theft - 43% of shrink in U.S. vs. 28% in rest of world  According to the latest Global Retail Theft Barometer, an annual industry study led by Deyle and inventory management firm Checkpoint Systems, shrinkage cost U.S. retailers about $42 billion a year. Of course, retailers everywhere deal with shrinkage, but there is one big difference between the U.S. and the rest of the world: Globally, dishonest employees are behind about 28% of inventory losses, while shoplifters account for a markedly higher 39%. Not so stateside, the study says, where employee theft accounts for 43% of lost revenue. That's about $18 billion, or $2.3 billion more than the cost of five-finger discounts taken by customers. The interesting question, of course, is not so much how as why. "Key reasons ... include ineffective pre-employment screening, less employee supervision, and easy sale of stolen merchandise," the report says. Deyle sees cultural differences at work too. "Internationally, there's more of an unwritten code that says it's not honorable to do something dishonest toward an employer," he says. "Here, it's a different mindset. There's so much turnover in retailing, and very little loyalty." fortune.com

Employees would sell passwords for $150
SailPoint uncovered a widespread level of employee indifference towards protecting sensitive corporate data, including personal information of customers. In fact, an alarming number of employees surveyed admitted they would sell their passwords, some for as little as $150 U.S. dollars. These stats are based on a global survey of 1,000 employees at large organizations. net-security.org

President Obama's "Buy Secure" initiative - Begins this month with EMV roll-out of chip-and-PIN cards for all federal employees  But Will Banks Be Influenced by the Strategy? The GSA says the federal government will issue more than 1 million EMV-enabled credit and debit cards to employees by the end of the year. Dynamic data authentication standards for chip transactions will be used by all three of the banks - JPMorgan Chase, Citibank and U.S. Bancorp - that issue cards for SmartPay. But Cara Battaglini, communications director for the GSA, says not all SmartPay transactions will be required to be conducted via chip-and-PIN. That's because many U.S. merchants are not yet equipped to accept chip transactions. As a result, all of the government's EMV chip cards will have magnetic stripes as well. Many banks contend that requiring consumers to enter PINs for credit transactions will be confusing, because credit transactions now only require a signature for authentication. What's more, banks say the addition of the PIN will not have a great impact on reducing fraud, because the PIN only address lost and stolen-card fraud. But retail groups have criticized banks and credit unions for taking that stance, noting that chip-and-PIN is much more secure than chip-and-signature. Unless U.S. card issuers deploy EMV-compliant chip cards that require PINs for transaction authentication, little progress will be made in fighting card fraud, contends Mark Horwedel, CEO of the Merchant Advisory Group. bankinfosecurity.com

Every $100 of Fraud from Mobile Payments Costs Merchants $334 in 2014 - Up from $283 in 2013  LexisNexis Risk Solutions Inc. released today its annual True Cost of Fraud Mobile study, which indicates that as merchants flock to the mobile channel so too are fraudsters. Revenue that mobile commerce (mCommerce) merchants lost to fraud spiked 70 percent in 2014 to 1.36 percent compared to 0.80 percent in 2013. For comparison, all merchants lost 0.68 percent of revenue to fraud in 2014 in comparison to 0.51 percent in 2013. The complexity of additional payment channels, like digital wallets, coupled with additional access channels, like mobile web sites and apps, produce more avenues for fraud. More than one-fifth (21%) of all fraudulent transactions are attributed to the mobile channel. businesswire.comc

Apple Pay makes credit card fraud easy - No plastic necessary
When Tim Cook unveiled Apple Pay last year, the company hailed it as the a simple contactless payment solution that also brings extra security credit cards. Except according to one report, Apple Pay is actually making it easier for scammers to commit credit fraud. Apple Pay's security problem has nothing to do with Touch ID, NFC, the secure element, or stolen iPhones. All of that is locked down as tightly as Apple advertised. The problem, according to an unconfirmed report from DropLabs, is that Apple Pay is so easy to use, fraudsters don't even have to create a physical fake card anymore. Instead of hacking the hardware, fraudsters are just buying stolen consumer identities, complete with credit card info, and loading that into Apple Pay. This allows them to create a fake digital credit card without going through the hassle of printing it out on plastic to use in stores. Drop Labs claims some Apple Pay banks have seen their fraud levels jumps up to 6%. cultofmac.com

Subway Sandwich Artist moonlights as Cybercrime Double Agent  When Karim Rattani isn't manning the till at the local Subway franchise in his adopted hometown of Cartersville, Ga., he's usually tinkering with code. The 21-year-old Pakistani native is the lead programmer for two very different yet complementary online services: One lets people launch powerful attacks that can knock Web sites, businesses and other targets offline for hours at a time; the other is a Web hosting service designed to help companies weather such assaults. Rattani helps run two different "booter" or "stresser" services. He also works on TheHosted[dot]me, a Web hosting firm marketed to Web sites looking for protection from the very attacks he helps to launch. Rattani and his partner are among an increasing number of young men who sell legally murky DDoS-for-hire services. The proprietors of these services market them as purely for Web site administrators to "stress test" their sites to ensure they can handle high volumes of visitors. krebsonsecurity.com

Big Data Helps Retailers Beat Fraud, Optimize Inventory, and Understand Customers  After years of collecting and compiling vast amounts of data, the time has come to benefit from this data. One of the key ways that Big Data can be made actionable is by implementing operational efficiencies and multiple improvements that can save money, increase income and save lives. The data available to retailers comes from web sites, in-store video and analytics systems, customer demographics, mobile location data from tablet computers and smart phones, social media, weather, and embedded sensors. Data collected from all these sources is being analyzed and used to create better customer focused shopping, more effective systems for delivery and numerous efficiencies.

Retailers such as Walmart are using Big Data analytics to optimize its inventory based upon the specific tastes and seasonal preferences of customers in each geographic area. Walmart combines public data from the web, social data and proprietary data such as customer purchasing data and contact information. As over 200 million customers visit Walmart stores each week, the data that the company can collect is vast. Another area where big data is impacting retail is in predicting customer purchases and customer micro-segmentation. Target stores in the U.S. recently analyzed historical purchase data and identified 25 shopping items which could be used to indicate when a shopper is pregnant, leading targeted, pregnancy specific coupons and special offers being sent to those shoppers via email.

Other areas in which Big Data is helping retailers is cross selling and up-selling, location based marketing through geographical location data, pricing optimization through connected smart shelves to big data applications. The shelves will be able to automatically update prices based on dynamic market conditions.

Moving away from the shop floor, retail businesses have been using big data to help with supply chain and logistics optimization. Sensors in delivery trucks and Radio frequency ID tags on products can help stores know the exact location of products in transit. Retail fraud can also be spotted through monitoring - by modeling and analyzing high volumes of data from transactions and extracting features and patterns, retailers can prevent credit account fraud. cbronline.com

Walton Co, FL Deputies respond to $200,000 Solstice sunglasses store heist The Walton County Sheriff's Office helped foil a late Sunday burglary at Silver Sands Premium Outlets on Sunday. Two minutes after the alarms bell sounded, deputies arrived on the scene at Solstice Sunglasses in Miramar Beach. Upon arrival at around 10 p.m., deputies found four large trash cans containing an estimated 1,000 pairs of sunglasses worth $200,000. Video footage shows a silver or white van pull up in front of the store and four individuals getting out and entering the store. All four individuals were wearing dark colored clothing, hoodies, gloves and masks. They were also caught on camera placing the sunglasses into the bins.

Brooklyn man pleads guilty to conspiracy in Armed Robberies, targeting T-Mobile and Radio Shack stores in NJ and NY  A Brooklyn man pleaded guilty Monday to federal conspiracy charges, admitting his role in a string of armed robberies of electronics stores in New Jersey, including a cellphone store in Paramus, authorities said. During a hearing in Trenton, Eric Williams, 34, admitted to U.S. District Judge Anne E. Thompson that he conspired with two other men to commit Hobbs Act robberies, or robberies of businesses that are engaged in interstate commerce. Williams, who has been in custody since his arrest last Valentine's Day, was part of a group that robbed eight T-Mobile and Radio Shack stores in New Jersey and New York from June 2012 to January 2013, authorities said. Williams typically acted as a lookout or getaway car driver, while his armed co-defendants entered the stores, tied up employees and stole merchandise, according to court documents and statements. Williams also delivered stolen phones to a phone store in Brooklyn. northjersey.com

Your success is directly tied to the relationships you have with your stores, with your colleagues, and with your vendors. The ability to develop, nurture, and grow those relationships is critical if you expect to deliver the results you need.
