Walmart just signaled a terrifying new reality for American retail
Sales Will be "Relatively Flat" this year
Walmart is not expecting any significant sales growth in the coming year - and
that's bad news for the retail industry as a whole. Including store closures and
the impact of the strengthening U.S. dollar, we now expect net sales growth
to be relatively flat in fiscal year 2017," Walmart CFO Brett Biggs said in
the company's earnings call.
Walmart "remained diligent on improving processes related to shrink"
In Walmart's 4th quarter earnings call this morning Greg Foran, president and
CEO of Walmart U.S. said, "lastly, we made additional progress on our urgent
agenda items, focused on reducing costs both in how we operate the business and
in procuring merchandise, and remained diligent on improving processes
related to shrink."

science of stealing - LPRC's Read Hayes spotlighted in University of Florida's
When you think of retail theft, you might envision teenagers shoplifting
candy bars. It's much more, says Read Hayes, co-director of the Loss Prevention
Research Team at the University of Florida. More than $44 billion in merchandise
goes missing across the United States each year, driving up prices for paying
customers and filling the coffers of gangs and terrorist organizations. In
cities around the United States, a growing number of violent drug store
robberies are putting employees and customers at risk, while data breaches
siphon off in minutes what would take years to steal from stores.
Through collaborations with computer engineers, sociologists and political
scientists across campus, Hayes works to thwart these criminals - both in his
role at UF and as director of the Loss Prevention Research Council, which hosted
the conference where criminals shared their secrets.
It's an opportunity to use academic research to solve real-world problems."
Retailers Adopting 21st Century Techniques To Fight Internal Fraud
Oracle's data-mining software, which it acquired in 2014 as part of the MICROS
Systems deal and which it now also offers as a cloud service, isn't just for
catching bad actors. It also can identify instances where cashiers are violating
company policy inadvertently.
To effectively fight loss prevention, retailers need to cultivate two skill sets
in particular: the analytics expertise to get visibility into potential
problems; and the investigative chops to confirm or reasonably deduce wrongdoing
and determine its extent.
A strength of Oracle's XBRi software, he says, is that retailers can adjust
thresholds and risk factors to minimize false positives-cases where normal
activity is identified as high risk. Oracle XBRi factors in over 3,000 risk
metrics, augmented by the deep retail loss prevention expertise of Oracle's
Report: Walmart case could expand gay rights in workplace
Walmart is the target of a lawsuit that could provide an answer to the quesition
as to whether anti-gay discrimination is a form of sex discrimination, according
to Bloomberg. If a settlement isn't reached in the case, which goes to mediation
on Feb. 22, it will go to trial in federal court in Massachusetts. "Legal
experts, civil rights advocates specializing in anti-gay and gender-identity
bias, and employment lawyers who defend large companies say whatever the
outcome, the case against Walmart could help set a precedent by expanding the
definition of sex discrimination," Bloomberg reported. bloomberg.com
Desperate Staples Still May Not Win Office Depot Despite Big Asset Sale
On Tuesday, Staples and Office Depot announced an agreement to sell more than
$550 million in corporate contract business and related assets to office
supplies wholesaler Essendant. Essendant will pay Staples approximately $22.5
million for the business. The deal will only go through if the merger between
Staples and Office Depot is completed.
While the sales agreement formally demonstrates that Staples is serious about
trying to alleviate competitive concerns, Staples previously noted that a
proposal to divest an even larger amount of commercial contracts was rejected
In a statement on Dec. 21, Staples said the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
rejected its proposal to divest up to $1.25 billion of commercial contracts in
order to gain approval to acquire Office Depot. According to Staples at the
time, the FTC did not issue a counter proposal. The company said it was willing
to continue negotiations with the FTC to reach a settlement that addresses
antitrust concerns, while also noting that it's pursuing the transaction through
An administrative trial to decide whether or not the deal can go through is
scheduled to begin on May 10, 2016.
Murino added, "It's impossible to know how the FTC will react, but I suspect
the FTC will still conclude this divestiture does not go far enough to resolve
its concerns -- what this does do, however, is force the FTC to 'litigate
the fix' -- in addition to proving how the acquisition will lead to a
substantial lessening of competition, the FTC must also now prove that the
remedy the parties have proposed doesn't go far enough." thestreet.com

Hard-coded password exposes up to 46,000 video surveillance DVRs to hacking
23,000 of these are in U.S.
can log into DVRs from RaySharp and six other vendors using a six-digit
hard-coded root password. Up to 46,000 Internet-accessible digital video
recorders (DVRs) that are used to monitor and record video streams from
surveillance cameras in homes and businesses can easily be taken over by
According to security researchers from vulnerability intelligence firm Risk
Based Security (RBS), all the devices share the same basic vulnerability: They
accept a hard-coded, unchangeable password for the highest-privileged user in
their software -- the root account.
RaySharp DVR devices provide a Web-based interface through which users can view
camera feeds, manage recording and system settings and use the pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ)
controls of connected surveillance cameras. Gaining access to this management
interface would provide an attacker with full control over the surveillance
The Chinese company also creates digital video recorders and firmware for other
companies which then sell those devices around the world under their own brands.
The RBS researchers confirmed that at least some of the DVR products from
König, Swann Communications, COP-USA, KGUARD Security, Defender (a brand of
Circus World Displays) and LOREX Technology, a division of FLIR Systems, contain
the same hard-coded root password.
And those are only the confirmed ones. A separate CGI script in RaySharp-supplied
firmware contains a list of 55 vendor names that supposedly use the
firmware, so the number of companies with potentially affected products is much
Using the Shodan search engine for Internet-connected devices, the RBS
researchers found between 36,000 and 46,000 DVR devices that they believe are
vulnerable to this issue and are directly exposed to Internet attacks. About
half of them are located in the United States. csoonline.com
Calif. Data Breach Report Says Retail Most Vulnerable
California received word of 657 data breaches between 2012 and 2015, which
compromised 49.6 million records, the report revealed. The retail sector
accounted for 25 percent of all breaches and 42 percent of records breached - 21
million records - in the past four years, with most of the transgressions
caused by malware and hacking and the most commonly breached type of data being
payment card data, the report says.
"There were 163 retail breaches in the four-year period, constituting
25 percent of all breaches, and 90 percent of them were caused by malware
and hacking. This is more than twice the rate of other sectors for this type of
breach," the report states.
Thinking About Insider Threats
It's important when considering insider cyber threats to not let the cyber
element distract from the basic problem; hacking is still fundamentally theft
of information. In fact, I would encourage security managers to think about
these insider threats much as they would any other sort of corporate or
government espionage. stratfor.com
ALL-TAG Now Offers a New Source-Tagging Service to Consumer Product Goods
ALL-TAG, a leading manufacturer of anti-theft
Security Tags, Security Labels, and other Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS)
products, announces new service offerings for CPG (Consumer Product Goods)
Boca Raton, Florida -
a leading manufacturer of anti-theft Security Tags, Security Labels, and other
Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) products, announces new service offerings

the ALL-TAG manufacturing facility in Florida.
Source Tagging is a very efficient, cost-saving process where product
manufacturers and packagers strategically position RF or AM security labels on
products before shipping them to retail stores. Both retailers and product
manufacturers benefit from source tagging in many ways.
Using a Label-Aire brand high-speed label application machine, ALL-TAG can apply
both RF and AM labels to all types of retail product packaging in a very timely
"As source tagging experts, we work closely with manufacturers and packagers to
determine the RF or AM label position that ensures excellent detection by an EAS
system, invisibility and tamper resistance, and deactivation convenience at the
checkout counter," explained Vice President of Sales, Andy Gilbert. "This new
service gives source-taggers one source where they can purchase RF and/or AM
Labels and have them applied to the retail product packaging."

Online fraud is skyrocketing 163%
Benchmarking Hackers And Their Attack Methods
94 percent and 163 percent. Two numbers that pretty much tell the story of fraud
online in 2015. 94 percent is the extent to which fraud as a percentage of
revenue for online merchants has increased year over year (2014 to 2015). Fraud
attempts on Digital Goods alone increased by 2.5 times from the 1st quarter of
2015 to 3rd quarter of 2015.
163 percent is the increase in the rate of fraud attacks. Fraud is big
business, and fraudsters are increasingly sophisticated business professionals.
And it seems that they are using more tools - more often - to try to score big -
at the merchant's expense, of course.
The Global Fraud Attack Index, was conceived to help track, analyze and
report on the important trends happening in the world of fraud as it relates to
payments and commerce. Every quarter we will monitor how fraud attempts,
reflected as a percent of U.S. sales transactions, on U.S. merchant websites are
trending. Up? Down? Stable? Time to panic? Hopefully not.

Study: Pay-Per-Click Advertising Lacks Controls Against Fraud
Three UT Dallas researchers, along with a former PhD student, examined the
process of identifying click fraud. In their study, they proposed a way to
support technological improvements.
The study considers identifying click fraud as a three-stage process: the
service provider - for example, Google or Yahoo - classifies clicks as
fraudulent or not. Then, the advertiser does the same using his own technology.
If there is a disagreement, the service provider examines further and its
conclusion is considered binding.
"The problem with the approach is intuitive. In the service provider's point of
view, whether it's a valid click or a fraudulent click doesn't matter. He gets
paid," said Dr. Young Ryu, associate professor of information systems. "The
advertiser wants to verify whether the click is fraudulent or not. Even if the
click is valid, the advertiser may want to say it's fraudulent because of the
He said the study found that this conflict between the parties, and the lack of
information about the technology used by each, does not incentivize service
providers and advertisers to improve their technologies to identify fraudulent
clicks. To solve the problem, the researchers suggest that an independent third
party investigate and flag fraudulent clicks when a conflict arises between the
advertiser and the service provider. This arrangement induces the service
provider and the advertiser to improve their respective click fraud detection

Loyalty is one of the most precious values there is and a loyal team that's
unified in its goals and objectives, even in defeat, is strong and supportive.
Loyal teams can make the largest tasks seem effortless and they create a sense
of ownership of family that inspires individual performance and comforts
individual failure. Earned slowly and grown daily, loyalty is a commodity no
leader can be without because it fuels success, unifies purpose, and gives birth
to exceptional performance. Without loyalty, teams splinter and lose focus on
the true objectives. It's rare to build a truly loyal team and it's incredibly
difficult to keep them together long term with private agendas always pressuring
the balance. And yes, even loyal teams require balancing because at the end of
the day it's always about personal agendas. Professional sports teams are
constantly looking for that balance and the right players to fit as a team and
the same holds true in business. With the right team, anything is possible and
conversely one team member can destroy the entire balance. So being a team
player is important even when you decide not to be.
