Retailer Convicted - Gets Probation & Largest Fine in History
Lumber Liquidators sentenced for illegal sourcing - $13.2 million penalty to DOJ
A federal judge sentenced the company to $13.2 million in penalties and five
years of probation on Monday in a federal court in Norfolk, Virginia.
That's $7.8 million in criminal fines, $969,175 in criminal forfeiture, $3.15
million in civil forfeiture, and more than $1.23 million in community service
Part of the organizational probation will entail independent audits and an
environmental compliance plan. The retailer had already agreed in October to
plead guilty to violations of a customs law and the Lacey Act, having been
accused of illegally importing wood from protected forests in Russia.
The $13.2 million settlement is the largest Lacey Act penalty on record,
according to a DOJ statement. This is also the first felony conviction
related to the import or use of illegal timber.
Lumber Liquidators received a felony charge of importing goods through false
statements and four misdemeanors for breaking timber laws in a foreign country
and transporting the falsely labeled timber into the U.S.
By knowingly and illegally sourcing timber from vulnerable forests in Asia and
other parts of the world, Lumber Liquidators made American consumers unwittingly
complicit in the ongoing destruction of some of the world's last remaining
intact forests," said Director Dan Ashe of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
"Along with hastening the extinction of the highly endangered Siberian tiger and
many other native species, illegal logging driven by the company's greed
threatens the many people who depend on sustainable use of these forests for
food, clean water, shelter and legitimate jobs. These unprecedented sanctions
show how seriously we take illegal trade, and I am grateful to the Service
special agents and wildlife inspectors, Homeland Security agents, and Justice
Department attorneys who halted Lumber Liquidators' criminal acts and held the
company accountable under the law." chainstoreage.com

Pinkerton on Terror Risk & Retail: The Cost of Doing Nothing is Increasing
In the last 10 years alone, the number of terrorist attacks has doubled,
according to the Institute for Economics and Peace. The number of casualties has
also increased. And many attacks occur in public places such as shopping malls,
restaurants, retail stores and hotels. What retailers can do to assess the
risk of a terrorist attack.
International events are having a greater impact on business operations and
continuity due to the increased connectivity of today's global economy. Threats
are less isolated and the magnitude of potential losses and business disruptions
are on the rise. The cost of doing nothing is increasing. Therefore it is good
business to put a plan in place to help mitigate against potential threats.
Certainly, all threats and risks cannot be avoided. But smart companies
concerned about long-term growth and sustained profits will have a plan to
lessen their potential impact.
A holistic approach to designing a security management plan that addresses four
different risk areas: operations/physical; event and hazard; technology and
information, and market and economic risk. To make a security management plan
relevant, a company should assess which mission-critical objectives must not be
impacted by these risks in order to achieve business results.
It is a good idea to revisit and update security strategies and plans because
the threat landscape is ever-changing.
The threat of terrorism as evolving - and likely to increase. Motives and
capabilities are changing with global technology advances and each success
emboldens subsequent acts. wwd.com

Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor Settle Humane Society Lawsuit
The Humane Society of the United States said on Monday that Saks Fifth Avenue
and Lord & Taylor had settled a civil contempt suit brought by the animal rights
organization after its investigation revealed more than 40 fur advertising and
labeling violations between December 2013 and November 2014. The HSUS'
investigation uncovered evidence that Saks and Lord & Taylor violated the Fur
Products Labeling Act and 2009 court orders prohibiting false advertising of
animal fur garments.
Under the new settlements, Saks and Lord & Taylor certify that they will cease
selling fur from raccoon dogs, which HSUS called "one of the most horribly
mistreated and commonly misrepresented species in the fur trade." The retailers
agree to pay The HSUS approximately $50,000 in investigation costs and legal
fees and agree to pay additional damages if they breach the agreement in the
Don't be Unprepared for an OSHA Inspection
Just ask Dollar General about being Unprepared
For the thousands of companies that have been through an OSHA inspection since
OSHA's inception in 1971, the experience has ranged from scary and nerve
wracking to polite and professional. Each inspector typically has pet peeves
based on past experience. Some are sticklers for electrical issues. Some are
hyper aware of power tools.
You actually can learn a lot about cooperation and collaboration through the
experience. Having said that, there's always a looming fear of discovery and
paranoia surrounding an impending OSHA inspection - much like the fear and
nervousness we face when we're dealing with an IRS audit. In both cases, your
company should always be prepared for a surprise visit.
Given the news that OSHA fines are scheduled to increase by about 80 percent
in August - the first penalty increase since 1990 - that fear and
paranoia is liable to escalate, but there are preparatory steps that can be
taken to minimize the fear of discovery. Having the right attitude,
understanding and expectation about an OSHA inspection is important.

How Tech Is Upgrading Retail Sales Clerks
Today's millennial shopper is driving the adoption of technology in retail with
their "Uber-like" expectations that their needs can, and should, be met at the
moment that they arise. This has pushed retailers to arm sales associates with a
variety of technologies to serve and support today's demanding customers. CIO
cites brands like Apple and Nordstrom as leading the way with handheld devices,
inventory management technology, in-store operational analytics and mobile POS
tools. But there are others that are finding innovative applications for new
customer support technologies as well. pymnts.com
Survey: Average successful hack nets less than $15,000
The majority of cyber attackers are motivated by money, but make less than
$15,000 per successful attack, according to a survey of hackers in the U.S.,
U.K. and Germany released yesterday by the Ponemon Institute. The hackers,
who were promised anonymity, netted, on average, less than $29,000 a year.
Hollywood may be promising them big payouts, he added, but the easy bucks just

Cybercrime for sale - U.S. Secret Service Criminal Investigative Division of
CaaS involved in 90% of all data breaches
Now, cybercrime is just like in other more established arenas of crime, it's not
just the sophisticated, knowledgeable and well-financed hackers and
cybercriminal organizations that law enforcers like Noonan's team need to worry
about, it's also the plethora of small-time or wannabe hackers or online
fraudsters who are being supplied and supported by the more savvy perpetrators
of internet threats.
By all accounts, cybercrime-as-a-service has become very prevalent and quite
lucrative for the individuals and groups that offer their (mal)wares,
thereby extending their black-hat hacking to a much broader arena. Through the
dark web or other underground circles, cybercriminals (including nation-states),
Eastern European crime rings and long-time hackers are selling everything
necessary to perpetrate a cyberattack or broad-based fraud.
While there is virtually no data on how much cybercrime is done using such
service providers, industry observers like Ryan Kalember, senior vice president
of cybersecurity strategy for Proofpoint, believe cybercrime-as-a-service
could easily be playing a role in "north of 90 percent of the online breaches
that are out there." "Cybercrime services are enabling these [criminals] to
reach a scale that is hard to reach on their own," he adds. "It's like being
an individual retailer versus being eBay." scmgazine.com
Protecting Your Business Beyond EMV, Chip and Pin
Shifting Fraud Liability to the Payment Processor
In addition to EMV, cloud-based security solutions help businesses guarantee
that all bases are covered by adding an extra layer of protection for
cardholders. Most of these solutions ensure that the cardholder's information
never touches the merchant's servers, placing the responsibility of data
security on the payments processor rather than the merchant. Combined with
EMV, these features will help protect your business from fraud.

Negligence, accidents put insider threat protection at risk
Malicious employees are usually the focus of insider threat protection efforts,
but accidents and negligence are often overlooked data security threats. Recent
ISF research found that negligence and accidents put insider threat protection
at risk and contribute to a growing number of corporate data security incidents.
The malicious insider is the one that, perhaps for financial gain or ideological
reasons, is intent on either stealing from or disrupting an organization. But
there are two other categories that are if not as concerning, then probably
more, and [they are] the negligent insider and the accidental insider. You
have to have corporate data security policies, processes and procedures in place
that people can refer to, and you need to be enforcing them at all levels of the

A Yahoo Employee-Ranking System Favored by Marissa Mayer Is Challenged in Court
One of Marissa Mayer's signature policies as chief executive of Yahoo has been
the quarterly performance review, in which every employee at the company is
ranked on a scale of 1 to 5. The ratings have been used to fire hundreds of
employees since Ms. Mayer joined the company in mid-2012. One former manager who
lost his job is challenging the entire system as discriminatory and a violation
of federal and California laws governing mass layoffs.
Mr. Anderson said the cuts, including what his boss said was the firing of about
600 other low-performing Yahoo employees at the time of his termination,
amounted to illegal mass layoffs. Under California law, the layoff of more than
50 employees within 30 days at a single location like Yahoo's Sunnyvale
headquarters requires an employer to give workers 60 days of advance notice. A
similar federal law, known as the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification
Act, requires advance notice for a layoff of 500 or more employees.
4 Reasons You May Get Slammed By Record Holiday Chargebacks
Fraud is the number one cause of chargebacks.
In fact, fraud will account for nearly 2 out of 3 chargebacks incurred during
the holiday season. Unfortunately, four key trends are likely to push fraud (and
chargebacks) for the 2015 holiday season to their highest levels ever:
1. Virtual gift cards and eGifting-popular during the holidays-have the
highest attempted fraud rate. The liquidity of virtual gift cards and eGifts
make them highly attractive to fraudsters who can easily resell them or quickly
convert them into cash.
2. Fraud rates for "buy online, pick up in store" transactions-offered by
more brick-and-mortar retailers than ever this past holiday season-were
predicted to jump by 28%. With EMV-also called Chip-and-PIN-making it much more
difficult to commit card-present fraud due to enhanced POS verification,
fraudsters had to switch tactics. One way they were able to avoid the higher
fraud prevention barriers posed by EMV was by buying via a fraudulent
card-not-present or mobile transaction, then strolling into the store to pick up
the ill-gotten merchandise.
3. Mobile transactions-which surged 47% during the holidays-were twice as
likely to involve fraud as conventional eCommerce. Even before the holidays,
merchants conducting mobile commerce lost 1.36% of revenue to fraud, double the
0.68% of revenue lost to fraud by all other eCommerce transactions.
4. The October deadline for EMV-just in time for the holidays-was
projected to drive fraud away from card-present transactions and towards
card-not-present (CNP) orders. Double digit increases in CNP fraud have been
common wherever EMV has been instituted. Case in point: in the five years after
Canada adopted EMV, CNP fraud skyrocketed 133% as fraudsters abandoned more
difficult card-present fraud.
How PayPal fights fraud with predictive data analysis
Scam artists continually find new ways to defraud unsuspecting people, and
PayPal is fighting back with predictive data analysis. Constant attacks from
fraudsters make life difficult for Hui Wang, PayPal's senior director of global
risk sciences. She is tasked with stopping fraudulent transactions before they
are processed. There's a lot at stake here for PayPal. When the service is used
for fraud it erodes the public's trust in the payment platform and damages the
brand. Over time this could threaten to diminish the user base.
To stop fraud and scams, Wang and her team have turned to predictive data
analysis to identify potentially fraudulent transactions. To identify potential
cases of fraud, Wang's team analyzes historic payment data to identify features
that may indicate an attempted scam. Things like what type of device the
requester is using, what country the request originates from and details from
the users' PayPal profile all can be correlated with fraud. The team uses this
data to build machine learning algorithms that assess each transaction for
potential signs of fraud. Over time the algorithm learns and sharpens its

communicate and document as much as we can publically in order to
hopefully persuade the
remaining 20 states to pass ORC legislation. With retail,
state, and city budgets being as tight as they are, it's also
imperative that we continue to share your news in a public forum
that enables any and all retailers, states and cities to quickly see
the reality of the matter and the facts that support their
continuing investment in the efforts.
As everyone knows, educating, communicating and documenting a
problem is the only way to gain the visibility needed to secure
the funding necessary to solve or fight it. We at the Daily are
committed to doing just that. But we need your help, your
stories, your cases and anything else you feel can add value to this
fight. We recently launched our new ORC Resource Center (orcinfo.com)

being deported to Romania after pleading guilty to the theft of $8,500 of baby
Three people pleaded guilty Monday to stealing more than 400 cans of baby
formula from numerous stores in Utah and Idaho, including several in Cache
Valley. Selford Velcu, 49, Iolanda Velcu, 47, and Elisabeta Zatreanu, 22, will
be deported to Romania after they each pleaded guilty to third-degree felony
theft by receiving stolen property in 1st District Court. "You will be deported
from the United States of America," Judge Thomas Willmore said. "I don't control
that, but you need to know that is the consequence." Their arrest not only
cleared a rash of thefts from several Logan stores, but also a number of stores
between Rexburg, Idaho and Heber City. According to Logan Police Lt. Rod
Peterson, police found 466 cans of formula, valued at $8,430.34.
Springs, TX: Suspects in Sulphur Springs ATV thefts linked to thefts in several
states; $234,000 in merchandise recovered
Sulphur Springs Police Department is searching for three suspects in connection
to ATV thefts from Nortex Tractor in Sulphur Springs. Police are searching for
Christopher Lee Chambers, 29, of Mabank, Dustin Kyle Garcia, 33, of Scurry and
Christopher Brandon Garcia, 34, of Seagoville. Leads in early January led to the
arrests of seven people connected to the thefts, in addition to the recovery of
12 Polaris Razors and two Rangers. The 14 recovered units were valued at about
$234,000. Six of those units recovered from the November theft are valued at
about $74,000 total. The units were recovered in Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana.
Police say the suspects involved in the ATV thefts could be part of a larger
organized crime ring and have been linked to recent burglaries in Lindale,
Tyler, and numerous other jurisdictions in Texas, as well as other states as far
east as Tennessee. Police say the theft ring could also be connected to this
attempted burglary at a Lowe's hardware store in Lindale.

Thefts are up along Soho's "Rodeo Drive," and many victimized store owners are
waiting until the end of the business day to call cops to keep their boutiques
from becoming shuttered crime scenes, sources told The NY Post. Grand larcenies
are up nearly 34 percent, from 74 to 99, in the First Precinct so far this year,

Competition is a good thing because it's what has made America so strong.
Whether it's competition between companies or between executives, it has a
tendency to bring out the best in most people and in most organizations. It
leads to innovation, invention, growth and it instills a sense of competition in
everything we do that tends to motivate and challenge people to reach beyond
their own self-definitions of what they can do or can't do. Without it,
progress, which is slow to begin with, would be stifled but, with it, you have
inspiration and purpose. The whole key is how you compete in the open market,
whether as a company or as an executive, reflecting professional standards and a
code of ethics is critical even when your competition isn't. The #1 rule should
always be never speak ill of the competition because in actuality it's more of a
reflection of who you are and not who they are.
