Inside Target, CEO Gregg Steinhafel Struggles to Contain Giant Cybertheft - A must watch video for every LP executive  How Target Is Working to Manage Crisis After Theft of Credit and Debit Card Numbers From Millions of Customers.
Opinion surveys commissioned by the company found that the massive cybertheft that waylaid Target late last year had knocked confidence and trust in the 51-year-old retailer to an all-time low. Some of the executives were frustrated. Target was having trouble shaking the fallout from a key decision by Chief Executive Gregg Steinhafel that made the crisis appear even worse than it already was. This account of how Target executives responded to one of the biggest challenges in the company's history is based on interviews with Mr. Steinhafel, Mr. Jones, Chief Financial Officer John Mulligan and other top executives and includes their recollections of internal discussions in the video. The executives acknowledge the crisis has damaged the retailer's bull's-eye brand, while analysts estimate it may cost Target billions of dollars. During the holiday-shopping season, Target's sales and store traffic plummeted. Call-center volume overwhelmed employees. Executives testified before congressional panels, and the company is facing federal and state investigations into how the cybercrime occurred from its store registers and computer network. Mr. Steinhafel says he has no regrets about the aggressive disclosure and other costly decisions in the wake of the crisis. "Target won't be defined by the breach, but how we handle the breach," he says. This account of how Target executives responded to one of the biggest challenges in the company's history is based on interviews with Mr. Steinhafel, Mr. Jones, Chief Financial Officer John Mulligan and other top executives and includes their recollections of internal discussions. Editors Note: This is a must read for every retail executive and gives us a great example of how to manage an event if it happens to you. Obviously needing to answer the questions of what suggestions, advice, and guidance you'd give your retailer as it truly has an impact on the future of the business and the immediate sales.  (Source wsj.comIt's worth the fee for a one-time read.

RILA partners with National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) has entered into a partnership with the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA) to enhance cyber security information sharing and expand retailers’ proactive and vigilant approach to cyber threats to protect consumers against criminals. Partnering with the NCFTA is one of several approaches RILA is taking to enhance collaboration across the entire payments system. Last week, RILA announced it is joining forces with the Financial Services Roundtable to lead a partnership between the merchant and financial services industries. This partnership will expand retailers’ network to include academia, law enforcement, financial institutions and other industries. In March, the RCLC will convene at the NCFTA in Pittsburgh to kick off the information sharing process across industries. (Source

13.1 million fraud victims last year - up 500,000 - highest number since report started  Account takeover fraud hit a new record in incidence for the second year in a row and accounted for 28% of all identity fraud. Additionally, fraudsters increasingly turned to eBay, PayPal, and Amazon with the stolen information to make purchases. In 2013, data breaches became more damaging, with one in three people who received a data breach notification letter becoming an identity fraud victim. Encouragingly, the amount criminals stole decreased by $3 billion to $18 billion, reflecting more aggressive actions from financial institutions, identity theft protection providers, and consumers. According to Javelin statistics, 2013 was the fourth year in a row for increased numbers of stolen accounts: 2010--10.2 million; 2011--11.6 million; 2012--12.6 million; 2013--13.1 million. In that same period, total losses fluctuated: 2010--$20 billion; 2011--$18 billion; 2012--$21 billion; 2013--$18 billion. (Source

Target data breach cost banks $200M to date
The costs related to Target's data breach have now exceeded $200 million for financial institutions, according to the Consumer Bankers Association and the Credit Union National Association, the Associated Press reported. The $200 million figure does not include the cost of any a fraudulent activity, which would push the cost of the breach to the industry higher as consumers are not held liable. (Source

FBI Releases Preliminary Semiannual Crime Statistics for 2013

The report is based on information from 12,723 law enforcement agencies that submitted three to six months of comparable data to the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program for the first six months of 2012 and 2013. Property Crime

Mobile Commerce: The Next Fraud Frontier
Mobile commerce continues to grow, but fraud prevention tactics in this channel need to grow at an equal pace as well. As we've seen in recent weeks, even physical POS terminals are not safe from cyber attacks and fraud attempts. With the attacks targeting Target, Neiman Marcus and other major retailers last month, cyber security and fraud prevention is in the public mind more than ever right now. And this means banks must be more vigilant than in the past. If a third party, such as a retailer or vendor, gets hacked and valuable financial data gets stolen, a bank will still be partially blamed in the court of public opinion even if it was not at fault.

Mobile payments can fight fraud where EMV can't
Fraud risk will always exist as long as we are using cards - even EMV-enabled ones, which still has its flaws. With EMV, the customer is still handing over the account token, with all of its credentials visible to a merchant, who can record it offline even before dipping it into a reader. Cloud-based mobile approaches can prevent this risk entirely, changing the security paradigm by storing all payment credentials behind an encrypted firewall accessible only through strong authentication with only indecipherable tokens provided to the merchant — tokens that represent transaction authorization, not actual account credentials. Nothing of value is stored on the mobile phone; nothing of value is transmitted back to the merchant. (Source

Mob investigation: 73-year-old admits role in $1 million cigarette-theft scheme - Mob run cargo theft-right out of the 'Goodfellas' movie  One of eight people arrested in alleged scheme to steal and sell $1 million worth of cigarettes has pleaded guilty. Augie” Guido, 73, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares in Newark federal court to conspiracy to commit cargo theft. Guido and seven other people — with nicknames including "Jimmy Boy" and "Charlie Tuna" — were charged in December of 2012 for their alleged roles in the scheme after an informant wearing a wire helped the FBI catch the crew, Fishman has said. Guido was released on a $100,000 bond after his arrest. Cooperating with the FBI, the informant took part in a sting operation in which he and the eight men stole a tractor-trailer loaded with 270 cases of counterfeit Pall Mall and Lucky 7 cigarettes from a warehouse in Edison, the U.S. Attorney's office said. Federal agents placed video cameras and other evidence-gathering equipment in the area, it said. In June, the informant met with some of the men to discuss the planned theft of the trailer — another recorded meeting — the U.S. Attorney's Office said. "Defendant Guido noted the lock was a 'piece of (expletive)' and advised the others than they needed ski masks and baseball caps," the U.S. Attorney's Office wrote in its announcement about the sting. Then, on July 31, law enforcement officers saw and video-recorded some of them men, wearing masks, breaking into the warehouse and driving away with the trailer, which they dropped off at a warehouse in Perth Amboy, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. In March 2011, the informant paid one of the men, James "Jimmy Boy" Dellaratta, 70, $500 — representing a portion of the sales from the cigarettes, the U.S. Attorney's office said. In February of 2012, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant of the Perth Amboy warehouse and found 52 full boxes, with each box containing about 50 cartons of the cigarettes, it said. In a separate sting in June of 2011, the informant told the defendants that 25 32-inch televisions had been stolen, and the TVs were transported to New York by Guido and Torlone, the U.S. Attorney's office said.

Mount Holly, Pa., female sentenced to 3 yrs for $800,000 "forced" sales on declined credit or debit cards at retailers  Temeshia McDonald would have a cashier process the purchase, then present an expired or counterfeit payment card that would be declined, officials said. She would then say she was the victim of identity theft, pretend to call the card company to obtain an authorization code, and give the cashier a number. The code, although phony, would override the denial and force the sale once it was entered into the terminal, officials said. By the time - hours or days later - store employees realized they were duped, McDonald was on to her next shopping spree, according to court records. Court records show her cutting a wide swath with her shopping sprees - she struck at shops in Manhattan, Philadelphia, Cherry Hill Mall, other suburban stores in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and Christiana Mall in Newark, Del. Authorities did not elaborate, but said proceeds from the fraud were used to pay for "plastic surgery, to make a down payment on a 2012 Cadillac CTS Coupe, and to purchase thousands of dollars of merchandise at high-end women's clothing stores.

ORC Booze felon dies after being caught shoplifting at Safeway in Belfair, Wash.
Mason County sheriff's deputies say a man dropped dead moments after he was caught stealing booze from a Belfair Safeway. Deputies were called to the Safeway on Sunday at 5 p.m. after store employees saw a man trying to steal a shopping cart full of alcohol and various other items. While waiting for police, a Safeway loss-prevention officer confronted the shoplifter outside of the store and told him to stop, according to sheriff's office. Instead of giving up, the shoplifter ditched the cart and took off running. When a deputy got to the store, the Safeway employee pointed out which direction the suspect was headed. The deputy searched the area and found the accused shoplifter on the ground. The man was non-responsive and wasn't breathing, according to the sheriff's office. With help from the loss-prevention officer, the deputy performed CPR on the man while waiting for a medic aid unit to arrive. The accused shoplifter was transported to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton, but he did not survive. The man, who has not been identified, had multiple felony warrants for his arrest and had previous felony convictions, according to the sheriff's office. (Source
