White House hold summit on Cybersecurity today at Stanford University  President Obama is set to sign an executive order aimed at encouraging companies to share information about cybersecurity threats with the government. Obama will sign the order at a day-long conference on cybersecurity at Stanford University in the heart of Silicon Valley. President Obama will give a speech at 11:20 a.m. PT from the summit. He is also expected to meet privately with a small group of business leaders, part of an effort to mend fences with tech companies still angry over damage to their businesses when government surveillance practices were exposed by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. Upset about the lack of reforms to those practices, the heads of Google, Facebook and Yahoo are not attending the Stanford conference. But Apple CEO Tim Cook will give an address. "Information sharing may be the single highest-impact, lowest cost, and fastest way to implement capabilities we have at hand as a nation to accelerate our overall defense from the very many increasing threats," American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault says. cnbc.com

Obama Order Will Help Firms Get U.S. Cyberthreat Data
One significant part of the executive order would allow the Department of Homeland Security to approve classified information sharing arrangements. DHS previously wasn't among the federal agencies that had this power. A significant part of the executive order is meant to push companies to share more information about cyberthreats with their peers, with the belief that if they alert each other to a new virus or malware, they can help prevent other companies from being hacked. But participation in the "information sharing and analysis organizations" that Mr. Obama is trying to promote will remain voluntary, the White House said, which means companies can choose whether or not to become involved. wsj.com

National Retail Federation Joins Retailers at White House Cybersecurity Summit
The National Retail Federation issued the following statement from President and CEO Matthew Shay on the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection held today at Stanford University. We commend the White House and President Obama for providing solution-based leadership around the significant threat posed by hackers and other cybercriminals. We are encouraged that the administration is pursuing a comprehensive approach and proposing the creation of new Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations, where companies can share information about cyber threats with the government and across sectors of the economy. nrf.com

The executive order is very much in line with what we are already doing to identify, classify and disseminate intelligence on actual and potential cyber threats to more than 150 of the best-known retail brands and companies, large and small. It is an acknowledgement that industries need more flexible and nimble information-sharing platforms to combat cyber threats in the future. nrf.com

Retail/Financial Services Cybersecurity Proposals Released
Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) CEO Tim Pawlenty and Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) President Sandy Kennedy, co-chairs of the Merchant Financial Services Cybersecurity Partnership, released new recommendations to protect the payments system at a presidential cybersecurity summit in California. The recommendations cover ways that companies can use technology to reduce data theft and the value of payment information if it's stolen or breached, as well as calling for more collaboration in the development of technology standards to safeguard the payments systems. The partnership's goals include fostering data sharing, proactively addressing emerging threats and sharing responsibility for protecting the payment's ecosystem.  progressivegrocer.com

Why New Cyber Agency Matters - Obama's new Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center - Private Sector Benefits Without Direct Ties  A new federal cyberthreat intelligence center could help the government build more resilient networks and better identify cyber-attackers, leading to arrests and punishments, a former top Defense Department IT executive says. Raduege says he doesn't see the private sector working directly with CTIIC, but says it should benefit from the center's work. He explains that cyberthreat intelligence will be fed to CTIIC from other governmental cybersecurity organizations such as the Department of Homeland Security's National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, a 24x7 cyber-situational awareness, incident response and management center known as NCCIC (pronounced n-kick). NCCIC, which works with the private sector, will forward to CTIIC cyberthreat information from the business community. When CTIIC comes up with a plan to defend against or respond to attacks, it alerts the other centers, including NCCIC, to execute it. If private sector systems are threatened, NCCIC will work with affected businesses using the CTIIC plan. govinfosecurity.com

Visa moving to "tokenization" of credit card numbers by spring to reduce value of stolen cards  Payment card giant Visa will announce Friday at the White House Cybersecurity Summit here a move to make hacked credit card data far less valuable to hackers. Specifically, Visa CEO Charlie Scharf will take to the stage at Stanford University to announce the "tokenization" of credit card numbers for online transactions. The announcement is one of many the Obama administration expects private sector companies to make during the summit. Visa rival MasterCard is announcing a new $20 million investment in cybersecurity technology. Tokenization means replacing the real 16-digit payment card number used to complete transactions with a substitute number called a "token." A stolen credit card number can be used again and again until the account is closed. But if the token is stolen, transaction analytics can detect subsequent use and prevent a fraudulent payment.  politico.com

Visa, MasterCard to Roll Out New Cybersecurity Features - Facial Recognition & Biometrics Coming  Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc. have unveiled plans to ramp up cybersecurity features for online transactions, amid growing concerns over credit-card theft. MasterCard, which plans to spend more than $20 million on the efforts, intends to roll out a pilot program later this year that will use a combination of biometrics, such as facial and voice recognition and fingerprint matching, to authenticate and verify transactions. The company said it would also launch a new product, MasterCard Safety Net, in the U.S. this spring to add an independent layer of security to monitor and block specific transactions based on selected criteria. wsj.com

Merchants footing the bill for data breaches incurred at banks - NRF & NACS inform Senate Banking Committee in joint letter  Contrary to what the banking community says, merchants pay the most for costs associated with data breaches at banks. Banks have been falsely claiming that they pay for everything associated with data breaches that happen at retail establishments, and have gone so far as to ask for legislation that would require merchants to pay the banks for costs associated with data breaches. The reality is that merchants not only pay for their own data breaches multiple times over, they also pay for the banks' data breaches. Therefore, the banks should actually be refunding money to merchants – not the other way around.  nacsonline.com

LPRC Clarification on Phase 1 Studies
and Package Wrap Report

The project reported last week in the D&D Daily regarding the U.S.S. BoxGuard were the results of a small phase 1 pilot involving 11 store level associates at a Gainesville department store. This was a preliminary test, and the initial results are far from conclusive evidence. These small sample tests can provide directional insight, and are designed to provide the basis and adjustments for larger sample sized research. The LPRC, like all research organizations, frequently conducts initial small tests in order to shape future research.

The LPRC does not consider phase 1 testing extensive enough to draw any firm conclusions regarding the application and removal times of the Boxguards vs any other package wrap. We at the LPRC regret this study was distributed to the public without our knowledge, and before we had the opportunity to discuss the scope and implications of the pilot with all involved parties.

The LPRC has conducted over 100 objective research studies over the past 14 years. The LPRC only publicly releases larger scale phase 2 and 3 studies, and only after all participants have reviewed and discussed the project's methods, results and possible implications for further study. We at the LPRC look forward to releasing further studies conducted for and with our over 40 retailer members and their solution partners.

Long Starved for High-Enders - Luxury Retailers are Coming to Canada - With only two true high-enders Canada is ripe territory  Although Canada's population of affluent shoppers is relatively small, the group packs a powerful punch. Some of the country's wealthy spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars annually on luxury goods and if they're not shopping at mono-brand designer boutiques, Holt Renfrew or Harry Rosen, they're buying online or traveling internationally. Even the non-wealthy are buying luxury. there's a trend among many women, especially those in urban centres, to splurge on luxury footwear and handbags - even more than on pricey ready-to-wear. Luxury brands have recognized this trend and have started opening locations at places like Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The new generation tends to view luxury differently. Many Millennials now seek the luxury experience, emulating what they see in popular culture. The awareness of luxury accessories and footwear among Canadian men is growing rapidly, a trend Ms Efros expects to continue with the new luxury retailers arriving in Canada. The entry into Canada of these luxury mono and multi-brand retailers will repatriate some of the dollars currently spent on luxury outside the country and will also increase the visibility and awareness of luxury retail. Holt Renfrew is Canada's only existing luxury women's chain and it will face significant competitive pressures from Saks, Nordstrom, the Canadian outposts of the global luxury brands that continue to open stores in Canada. It will be interesting to watch Canadian retail in the next several years, as luxury brands and retailers compete for a finite amount of spending. Competition will be fierce and fallout is likely. retail-insider.com

$18,000 Target Check Bounces to Small Business Market Researcher - 2,000 more are waiting for their's  20-year veteran market researcher spent months working on a major customer-feedback project for the discount retailer. Just before Target was granted court protection from creditors, the company sent her a cheque for $18,000, the final payment for her work. The cheque was dated Jan. 13, two days before the court filing, but she didn't get it until Jan. 26. When she went to the bank to cash it, the cheque bounced. Now, she's among nearly 2,000 unsecured creditors who are waiting to see if and when they'll get any of the money they're owed. "Vulnerable small businesses are going to be hurt deeply and so are the people who own and run them." theglobeandmail.com

Report: U.K. Consumers Don't Trust Mobile, But Cards are Fine
While U.K. consumers are making mobile transactions at a higher rate than last year, the number of people that perceive them to be the least secure way to pay for things has doubled, according to a new report. More than 71 percent of respondents called mobile payments the least secure way to pay. On the other hand, the number of people who trust credit and debit cards on the Internet has risen by 20 percent. Cash remained king, with nearly 73 percent calling it the most secure way to pay. cardnotpresent.com

Future of money: Cashless, cardless, paperless
The MIT Technology Review recently created a report, entitled "The Future of Money," which looks at the overall industry and factors leading to greater digitization of payments. Mobile phones have been a catalyst for much of the change, but it is important to remember that it is still very much a cash-based world... as estimates show that 85% of consumer transactions worldwide are still done with paper bills and metal coins. This report states how the digitization of payments is growing the overall market opportunity:

As technology drives a shift in how we buy things, the revenue that the payments industry extracts could grow to more than US $2 trillion a year by 2023, double the 2013 figure, the Boston Consulting Group predicts. Much of that increase will come from a reduction in cash payments in developing countries. mobilepaymentstoday.com

Retailer's Alert: ORC Ring Operating in Florida - $7,500 in lingerie stolen from Victoria's Secret in Tyrone Mall in St. Petersburg, Fla.
In one month, an organized theft ring has taken more than $7,500 in women's undergarments from Victoria's Secret store at Tyrone Mall, according to police. In January, there were three grand theft offenses committed at the store in the mall. On each occasion, surveillance cameras showed suspects stealing more than $2,500.00 worth of woman's lingerie. The suspects appear to be well organized with some acting as lookouts and distracters while the theft is taking place (see video below). Detectives believe these suspects are related to an organized group targeting retail stores in malls and factory outlets throughout Florida.  abcactionnews.com

Federal Grand Jury brings charges against man accused of Arson in Ferguson riots  Federal prosecutors are bringing charges in one of the fires in riots that destroyed businesses after the Michael Brown grand jury decision. A federal grand jury indicted Antonio Whiteside, 26, charging him with the arson of the Ferguson Market, the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in St. Louis said. The market was the scene of a reported strong-armed robbery by Michael Brown shortly before his fatal confrontation with police officer Darren Wilson. Police from St. Louis County, Ferguson and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives circulated surveillance camera pictures of a suspect wearing a camouflage jacket in connection with the fire. Whiteside is that suspect, prosecutors allege, according to a U.S. law enforcement official briefed on the investigation. Investigators said he was seen using an accelerant to set fire to the market, the official said. He was arrested in January and the indictment was brought on Wednesday. fox4kc.com

CVS Clerk steals gun from suspect during East Mount Airy, PA Armed Robbery  Philadelphia police have released surveillance of an armed suspect who robbed a drug store and attacked a store clerk in the city's East Mount Airy neighborhood Tuesday night. It happened at the CVS Pharmacy on the 6300 block of Stenton Avenue. Police say the suspect walked into the store just before 8 p.m. and approached the register to make a purchase. He pulled out a black BB gun from underneath a blanket and handed the 22 year-old female employee a demand note stating: "All the money in the cash register." The employee placed the money into a white plastic bag and set it on the counter. When the robber reached for the bag, the clerk quickly grabbed the BB gun and backed away. The suspect then forced his way behind the counter, punching the woman several times to try to get his gun back. When another employee came to help, the man fled the store with the money, leaving the BB gun behind. The employee suffered minor scratches to her arms and head. 6abc.com

"Keep It Simple." What a phrase that we've all heard a million times and, quite frankly, most of us don't take it seriously enough. So many tend to over think and over do that, at times, we just don't get things done. Ken Blanchard said in one of his books that if you expect or even want perfection, you'll never get anything done. We all tend to over think and in our desire to do what's best, we can get lost in details and stand in the way of moving forward - most of which is as a result of just plainly not having enough confidence in one's self to just risk it and go for it. Hesitation is human nature and wanting to make sure you get things exactly perfect - well somebody's going to pass you by with the answer - that's simple, but brilliant. So keep it simple and have faith in the bird on your shoulder.

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
