Staples keeping HQ in Framingham, Mass., after Office Depot acquisition - South Florida could lose 2,328 jobs  Office Depot was estimated to generate $443 million five years after its merger with OfficeMax which was completed Nov. 5, 2013, according to numbers from the Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI) model used by Palm Beach County. The figure was based on numerous factors including the impact of creating 378 jobs at an annual salary of $104,000 and retaining the existing 1,950 jobs in Boca Raton. If the Staples-Office Depot merger closes as expected at the end of 2015, and headquarters moves shortly thereafter, South Florida would lose out. Staples announced that it would acquire Office Depot in a $6.3 billion deal on Feb. 4. The company said it would keep its headquarters in Framingham, Mass., leaving questions about what would happen to Office Depot's jobs and headquarters in South Florida. bizjournals.com

Russian hacker pleads not guilty to $300M - largest hacking scheme ever prosecuted in U.S. Tuesday in U.S. District Court  Vladimir Drinkman appeared in U.S. District Court in New Jersey shackled and in yellow prison garb for the brief hearing, in which he pleaded not guilty to computer hacking conspiracy. Authorities say Drinkman, 34, of Moscow and Syktyvkar, Russia, and four co-conspirators from Russia and Ukraine stole and sold 100 million to 200 million credit and debit card numbers from payment processing companies, retailers and financial institutions between 2005 and 2012. The U.S. attorney's office estimated the total loss to just three of the corporate victims comes to more than $300 million. According to the indictment, Smilianets charged about $10 for each stolen U.S. credit card number, $15 for a Canadian number and $50 for each European credit card number, with discounts for bulk purchases. Drinkman was held in Amsterdam after his arrest in 2012 before he was extradited Friday. The other three named in the indictment are fugitives. startribune.com

U.S. Sees Major Q4 Spikes in Cargo Thefts  The 2014 SC –ISAC Q4 report details a major surge in the volume of cargo thefts in the U.S. According to the report, "We had been seeing a somewhat downward trend in the incidents, but this trend has stopped and reversed." Supply Chain- Information Sharing and Analysis Center (SC-ISAC) is an outstanding partnership and liaison for information sharing between Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the nation's supply chain. Turnaround? U.S. freight and logistics companies saw a whopping 259 incidents of cargo theft in Q4 alone. This statistic is up significantly across the board: 40% higher than the 165 incidents in Q3 2014, 30% surge over the 182 incidents in Q3 2013, Combined, Q3 and Q4 2014 statistics total 424 cases, a full 47 more, or 12% higher than 2013 for the same period. Texas continued to lead in cargo thefts for the quarter, followed by the usual victims, Florida, California, and New Jersey. Georgia and Illinois also saw significant losses. Cargo theft consistently spikes over weekends. In Q4 2014, when Friday and Monday are included, 70% of cargo crimes occurred over the weekend. By category, the most popular product stolen was consumer electronics. Food, the normal favorite, was tied for second place with metals. But this time, SC-ISAC broke these categories out for deeper dive into specific commodities: Automotive supplies get the top spot. Steel made an unusually high showing in the second spot. Other favorites were beverages, food, electronics, clothing and beauty aids. ISAC estimates Q4 incidents may have cost around $46 million dollars. security-today.com

Vermont looks at increasing Felony Theft threshold from $900 to $3,000; effort to decrease costs and prison population  Lawmakers will consider a bill intended to reduce the state's prison population. Rep. Mollie Burke, P-Brattleboro, introduced a bill Tuesday with numerous proposed revisions to state laws that govern the arraignment, incarceration and release of criminals in Vermont, all with the goal of keeping fewer people behind bars. Lastly, it would build on a law passed last year that diverts drug offenders from jail to treatment and would require all nonviolent offenders to be diverted to what the bill calls community-based alternatives. timesargus.com

Publix prepares to switch to smart-card system - Only 59% of merchants EMV capable by October  The new credit-card terminals started appearing in Publix Super Markets stores a few weeks ago with little fanfare. But the new smart-card terminals represent a big step for Publix and are part of a nationwide project to thwart credit card fraud with microchip-enabled cards. The industry-backed Smart Card Alliance estimated there were approximately 120 million new microchip cards in the U.S. market at the end of 2014, with 600 million estimated to be issued by the end of 2015. Master Card will have at least 95% of transactions originate at smart terminals by October. Today we're at 37% of merchants are EMV capable and 59% should be by October. tbo.com

Fraud in Global B2C E-Commerce & Online Payment 2014
The report, "Fraud in Global B2C E-Commerce and Online Payment 2014" shows that as online retail revenue is increasing at double digit growth rates globally, and is expected to total nearly 2 trillion Euros in the next four years, fraud is also increasing. The potential for fraud causes many prospective shoppers to stay away from online sales, and is forcing merchants to establish fraud prevention measures. One of the major trends in E-Commerce security is that fraud is expanding beyond payments into account takeovers, which are responsible for an increasing share of total E-Commerce fraud. Multi-channel and pure online merchants such as Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, Target and eBay were occasional targets of account takeover crimes in 2014. marketwatch.com

2014 Fraud Spike Cost US Retailers $32 Billion
According to the data, annual fraud costs reached $32 billion in 2014, a 38 percent increase over 2013, which has galvanized calls for more secure payments processing from both private companies and public officials. Fraudulent payments account for 0.68 percent of retail revenue, up from 0.51 percent in 2013, both due to yearly increases in retail sales as well as the greater impact of mobile payment software. On a similar line, prevention has also gotten more expensive at $3.08 per every dollar lost to fraud, up from $2.79 just a year before. E-commerce merchants were adversely affected by the fraud increase in 2014, reporting 0.85 percent of revenue being lost as a result of hacks, slightly more than the average for retailers. Virtual currency merchants, such as those who use Bitcoin and make up around 11 percent of the retail business, were the most likely to be hit by online fraud, with losses more than double those seen by retailers that did not use cryptocurrency. pymnts.com

Fencing Operation: Northern New Jersey Fence sentenced to three years prison - selling 1,400 stolen appliances on eBay and Amazon  A Clifton man was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison for selling $275,000 worth of stolen appliances on eBay and Amazon. Abraham Baruchov, a 49-year-old father of nine and grandfather of seven, wept and pleaded for leniency while ducking behind his attorney and trying to shield his face from a news photographer. "There is no excuse," he said between sobs. "I made a mistake." He was led out of the Hackensack courtroom in handcuffs. Prosecutors said Baruchov's crime was no mistake. They said he purchased and received coffee makers and other appliances that he knew were stolen from a major retail company. They said that all the items – about 1,400 appliances, including Keurig and Cuisinart coffee makers – were bought with stolen credit cards. The items were then shipped to addresses used by Baruchov or were sent directly to his online customers, prosecutors said. Baruchov was aware of the whole scheme that went on for more than a year – from January 2013 to February 2014. northjersey.com

The Real Reason You Are Stressed
Stress is a problem, but it's not the enemy. The real enemy is our assumption that stress is a toxic state that needs to be eliminated. Stress is really a normal biological response to challenge and allows us to get things done. Once you find the source of stress, you can develop coping skills. Take control

10 Ways to Stay Calm in the Face of Daily Stress  Stress isn't going to go anywhere, so it's best if we learn how to deal with the challenges we are going to face in our lives. To survive and thrive we need to find ways to deal with pressure. Here are some tips to keep your cool. Plan ahead

Get More Done by Focusing Less on Work  When people have a deadline, or want to get more done at work, they usually stay later, revise to-do lists and try to cram more work into every day.

Energy is the primary force behind success and without it mediocrity or failure is almost guaranteed. The ability to move things forward and influence change requires energy and there's a direct correlation to the amount of it and to the degree of success. It's great to start off energized and gung ho about a project or initiative, but it's critical to maintain the energy thru to completion. As one senior executive has said, "there's no bad plan -- it's always a matter of execution" and execution is all about energy. So when you think you've lost your energy, take a break, do something different, and give your mind a chance to re-energize. Because the worst thing you can do is to try to execute without it.

Just a Thought,
