Sears investigating possible data breach with help of Secret Service - experts warn it could be false alarm caused by common weakness in banks' anti-fraud systems  In response to rumors in the financial industry that Sears may be the latest retailer hit by hackers, the company said Friday it has no indications that it has been breached. Although the Sears investigation is ongoing, experts say there is a good chance the identification of Sears as a victim is a false alarm caused by a common weaknesses in banks’ anti-fraud systems that becomes apparent mainly in the wake of massive breaches like the one at Target late last year. Last week, rumors began flying that Sears was breached by the same sort of attack that hit Target in December. According to sources, Sears is in the early stages of a security review, as Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ)’s digital forensics unit and the U.S. Secret Service sift through the company’s computer data to look for traces of hackers and the extent of any incursion. “There have been rumors and reports throughout the retail industry of security incidents at various retailers, and we are actively reviewing our systems to determine if we have been a victim of a breach,” Sears said in a written statement. ”We have found no information based on our review of our systems to date indicating a breach.” Media stories about undisclosed breaches in the retail sector have fueled rampant speculation about the identities of other victim companies. Coming to light is a potential blind spot in the approach used by most banks to identify companies that may have had a payment card breach. The problem stems from a basic anti-fraud process that the banks use called “common point of purchase” or CPP analysis. In a nutshell, banks routinely take groups of customer cards that have experienced fraudulent activity and try to see if some or all of them were used at the same merchant during a similar timeframe. This CPP analysis can be a very effective tool for identifying breaches; however, in the shadow of massive card thefts like the one that occurred at Target, false positives abound.

Dick's Sporting Goods accuses rival chain Modell's CEO of undercover spying, impersonating Dick's SVP  Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. is accusing Mitchell Modell, CEO of Modell’s Sporting Goods, of disguising himself as a Dick’s executive to illegally obtain confidential business information. In a complaint filed in state Superior Court in Mercer County on Feb. 20, Dick’s Sporting Goods claims Modell visited one of its stores in Princeton on Feb. 8 and pretended to be a senior vice president of Dick’s who was collecting information about the store. Modell allegedly told a store manager he had an appointment to meet Dick’s CEO Edward Stack at the store and persuaded employees to show him around the store’s private back areas and answer questions about store operations. Dick’s is seeking unspecified financial compensation for damages, and a ruling that would bar Modell or any of his employees from making future visits to the non-public areas of a Dick’s store or using the information gained from Modell’s February visit. The allegation, if proved to be true, highlights the pressure smaller, regional chains are under from Dick’s, which has become dominant in the sporting goods retail space. (Source northjersey.com)


The British Retail Consortium releases new guidance to protect shop workers from retail violence  The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has released new guidelines to help protect the retail sector’s three million employees from violence, following Retail Crime Survey figures that showed shop staff were victims of almost 36,000 incidents of violence or abuse last year. The BRC said the guidelines are endorsed by Home Office Minister for Crime Prevention Norman Baker, shop workers’ union Usdaw and the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS). The guidance aims to help retailers of all sizes improve staff protection and makes it clear that abuse from customers should not be considered ‘part of the job.’ It outlines the extent of action being taken by retailers to keep staff safe, from safety-conscious design of the working environment to conflict management training and having effective procedures for when an incident occurs.

‘First’ physical Bitcoin retail store opens in Hong Kong; same day that Japanese Bitcoin exchange MtGox was forced to file for bankruptcy protection  A shop selling the virtual Bitcoin currency has opened in Hong Kong, as fresh concerns grew in Asia over the currency’s viability and security. Touting itself as the world’s “first” p physical Bitcoin retail store, Hong Kong-based exchange ANXBTC said it could help raise the popularity of the crypto-currency. It came on the day that Japanese Bitcoin exchange MtGox was forced to file for bankruptcy protection, saying it had lost nearly half a billion dollars’ worth of the digital currency in a possible theft. ANXBTC Chief Executive Officer Ken Lo said the MtGox saga was only “a drop in the bucket” and the Bitcoin market remained bullish. “There is no shortage of demand,” Lo told AFP at the opening ceremony of the shop located in the residential district of Sai Ying Pun, where people later queued to open an account or make purchases.

Uniqlo parent Fast Retailing Co and South Korean’s E.Land Group are separately exploring a deal for J.Crew Group Inc  J.Crew, which was taken private by TPG Capital LP and Leonard Green & Partners LP for $2.8 billion in 2011, believes it should fetch at least $5 billion in any sale, one of the people said.It was not yet clear whether either Japan's Fast Retailing or Korea's E.Land have held any substantial discussions with J.Crew about a deal. E.Land, one of South Korea's largest fashion and retail companies, is in talks with potential partners, which could include an Asian trading house, for a joint J.Crew bid, a second person said. While there is takeover interest from other companies as well, owners of J.Crew are not necessarily committed to pursuing a sale of the company. (Source reuters.com)

Is It Your Coworkers or Your Office That Is Making You Sick?
A recent study in Ergonomics of almost 2,000 employees working in different office environments found that the design and layout of workplaces may have an impact on how much sick time an employee takes. After crunching the numbers, the researchers found a “significant excess risk” of short-duration sick-leaves in three types of open-plan offices, especially among women. The study also revealed a higher prevalence of both short sick-leaves and a higher number of sick days among men in flex-offices, which are the open-plan layouts with no individual workstations (but some meeting rooms). Researchers said that the office environment had an impact on health and wellbeing for several reasons: •The need for personal control over the surrounding environment is considered fundamental for human well-being. •Personal control is strongly related to office employees' environmental •The perception of privacy is important to employees. •Distraction from noise (“irrelevant sound”) and other factors can contribute to absenteeism.

Top 10 Ways to Screw Up Your Next Interview

By Brett Ward
VP, Client Relations
Wickander-Zulawski & Assoc.


10 – Assuming tenure equals intelligence
Thinking that tenure equals intelligence is an unfortunate misconception. Thousands of students and professionals from the private or public sectors have taught us that tenure can often times lead to complacency. The “been there, done that” mentality can be an expensive one. We must understand that exposure to many types of cases is a blessing to learn from, not a stamp of approval to believe we are the “all-knowing.” In a field that is more art than science, “expert” is a dangerous title to declare. We must remember someone is working harder than us, always. They are professionals willing to explore other methodologies, discover more tools, and become more flexible at times when flexibility is necessary.

9 – Not knowing our opponent
Techniques allow a professional to build a framework. That being said, without a little homework up front to know our opponent leaves the tank half-empty when it comes to “guesstimating” ideas of guilt transference mechanisms. It’s our job is convince our opponent that we are prepared, thorough, and creating an atmosphere of, “This cat has done his homework.” We live in a social networking society at this point. Do some homework and learn who you’re getting ready to chat with. You may get an idea of why they are in the position they are in to begin with.

8 – Approaching the interview with a “script”
This simply means it’s good to learn from the positive things you’ve done in prior investigations but that doesn’t mean we should rely on our success as gospel. The fact is, just because we are successful once it doesn’t mean that exact scenario is going to relate to the next interviewee.

7 – Listening to those touting a 100% confession rate
Please don’t be this guy. If you’re giving your “confession rate” too much credibility, consider the complexity of the cases you’ve worked as well as the overall reason we’re in this profession. Is it for a 100% confession rate or is it to find the truth?

6 – Underestimating the power of “empathy”
It appears that all reputable and professional techniques on the market now are built off the art of rationalization. Being able to provide empathy to someone who has made less than desirable life choices is truly an art form and one not to be taken lightly.

5 – Judging the interviewee for their actions
It’s always valuable to remember that the person you’re sitting across from could be anyone in your family, your children, or maybe even you someday. Let’s lose the labels we have decided to place on individuals who find themselves on the wrong end of a business conversation. From a psychological perspective, we want these conversations to be adult to adult. Not parent to adult, and certainly not parent to child. Make sure you are taking a moment or two to see the world through their eyes.

4 – Letting our instincts and intuition play a role
We all know that interviewing is an art built from a scientific formula that works. When we start thinking our instincts and intuition is smarter than the tried and true science we’ve learned, we need to step back and evaluate where we’ve gone wrong.

3 – Playing the “quickest confession wins” game
Too many interviewers put pressure on themselves to close the deal as quickly as possible so they can relax knowing they “won.” We have to remember that the normal person doesn’t go from “rejection” to “submission,” but passes through a phase of “evaluation” to consider their options during this difficult conversation. Sometimes pulling the trigger too quickly simply allows the opponent to toss a minor offense in the ring to see if the little doggie will run out and grab it, and prance off satisfied. If your senses turn off after hearing, “Ok, I did it,” you might be selling yourself short. That’s when we should be ensuring we have exhausted all opportunities to obtain the elements: intent, substantiate the confession, get a proper document and potentially turn this person into an informant. Catch your breath when you get there. Let whatever technique you’re employing that day work to its truest benefit.

2 – Speaking on our psychological playing field
Back off on the acronyms, street lingo and professional jargon. Speak at an educational level you’re comfortable with and more importantly, one the subject can understand. Take it slow to ensure you’re not confusing yourself or the subject.

1 – Stop learning and practicing
This is a no-brainer. We’ve got to continue challenging ourselves, building on what we currently know and do and ensuring that our techniques and application still fits current customs, cultures, laws and demographics. We’ve got to think, “What if everything changed and I could no longer say __________.” We need to get back on track about prepping ourselves for the ever-present curveball thrown at us during interviews. We need to get better at “guesstimating” motive, hurdle and potential objections so we sound prepared and confident during these conversations. Then, we must remember more of the failures than the successes so we don’t become complacent and stale...or worse: dangerous.
 

 


 

 


 

Fingerprint security is convenient, but not flawless
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone will be at least the third to have a fingerprint sensor for security but it's alone in letting you use that for general shopping, thanks to a partnership with PayPal. The sensor brings convenience for entering passcodes and could encourage more people to lock their phones. But fingerprint security isn't foolproof. If you're at a retail store that accepts mobile payments through PayPal's app, for instance, you can use the fingerprint instead of your usual password. It's more secure than not locking your phone with a passcode at all. It's also more secure than using a four-digit passcode. The fingerprint ID system was easy to trick, though it's not something easily pulled off in the real world. You need to have that specific phone and the fingerprint, for one thing. And then you compromise only that one phone. (Source denverpost.com)

Mobile Devices: 30 Percent Of Traffic, 15 Percent Of Sales
A new “year in review” report from e-commerce platform ShopVisible offers some interesting insights and confirms consumer behavior patterns seen in earlier data. In particular, mobile devices are generating an increasing amount of traffic to e-commerce sites; however, the online sales they deliver are half that volume. Overall, mobile devices were responsible for 30 percent of traffic but only 15 percent of online orders in 2013. And, if you consider tablets to be more like PCs than smartphones (as Google does), then “mobile” orders were only 4 percent of the total. Most people shopping on smartphones are either “on the go” (and will buy in stores offline) or they’re “higher up in the funnel” conducting research that may not lead immediately to a purchase. Accordingly, mobile devices are both a great brand/awareness medium and a powerful direct-response medium — though mostly for offline sales. (Source marketingland.com)

US online retailers go the extra mile
The fitting room is coming home. Online retailers selling everything from jeans, eyeglasses and shoes are shipping their products to customers for free to try on at home before buying them. A credit card is needed, but nothing is charged unless the items aren’t returned on time. The limit for how long you can keep items is usually about a week. Shipping is free both ways and there’s no obligation to buy anything. (Source gulfnews.com)

Eliesky Sanchez, 31, and Reinaldo Garcia Suarez, 39, were charged Friday with conspiracy to receive goods stolen from an interstate or foreign shipment.

Virginia’s Quik-E Foods Cuts Losses with March Networks Retail Video Surveillance Solution

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, February 27, 2014 – March Networks, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that customer Quik-E Foods of Lynchburg, Virginia is upgrading to its next-generation retail solution for enhanced security and loss prevention. The March Networks solution integrates high-quality video, audio and transaction data to combat point-of-sale (POS) fraud and other threats to the business. The powerful solution has already helped Quik-E Foods improve operations and resolve serious incidents across its chain of 12 convenience stores and five automated car washes.

“We caught a cashier who was pausing transactions and then pocketing the money once customers left the store. The scam was adding up to more than $6,000 in losses,” explained Quik-E Foods Vice President Todd Burgess. “With the deep POS integration and search tools in our March Networks solution, those transactions showed up as voids, and we also had the video evidence to verify what was happening. There wasn’t a need to search for hours and hours. It was instant.”

Working with March Networks certified provider Integrated Technology Group, Quik-E Foods is upgrading its existing March Networks NVRs to high-performance 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs. The recorders maintain the unparalleled reliability, centralized video management and scalability of previous generation March Networks NVRs. In addition, they deliver improved performance and video compression, expanded internal storage and the ability to support as many as 32 IP cameras or hybrid analog/IP configurations. This allows Quik-E to transition from 100 percent analog to 100 percent IP video cost-effectively and at its own pace.

The convenience store chain will also upgrade to powerful March Networks Searchlight for Retail software, which will be particularly helpful in optimizing operations at the family-run business. In addition to quickly investigating suspect transactions along with associated video, retailers can use Searchlight’s automated reports to monitor operations, such as whether stores opened on time, shelves were stocked properly and employees were dressed as required. The daily reports will also help the retailer maintain compliance and operational standards. Searchlight accomplishes in minutes what formerly took hours of time and effort to adequately oversee.

Using the mobile video service March Networks Cloud, the Quik-E team also has convenient access to live and recorded surveillance video on their smartphones and tablets. With full backward compatibility, the mobile solution allows the IT team to review video for all convenience store and car wash locations, regardless of technology generation installed.

The reliability of the March Networks recorders proved invaluable to Quik-E in 2013 when 60 mph winds tore through the Lynchburg area, forcing the business to rely on generators for power. “When the power was restored, all of my recorders came back up,” said Quik-E’s Burgess. “The thing that most impresses me about March Networks technology is that it’s a piece of equipment that’s extremely reliable. I never have to fool with it.”

“Quik-E Foods is a long-time customer who proves how a growing business can rely on our complete retail solutions to provide a real competitive advantage,” said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. “They have used the technology to improve their operational efficiency, ensure security for their customers and staff, and protect their profitability. In addition, they have continued to add new, advanced capabilities without ever having to abandon existing recorder and camera investments.”

About March Networks
March Networks, an independent subsidiary of Infinova, is a leading provider of intelligent IP video solutions.
