Crystal Collins was named Director of Retail Asset Protection for Meijer.
Congratulations Crystal!
























Asset Protection: people, property, and reputation

By: Rhett Asher, Vice President, Asset Protection, Data Security & Crisis Management, Food Marketing Institute

Over the years, I've learned that asset protection really boils down to just three words: people, property, and reputation. These areas are the focus of this year's FMI Asset Protection Conference, March 9-12 at the Peabody in Memphis, TN.

People are at the heart of asset protection. It is people that help secure company assets, but it's also people we aim to protect. In our program we'll explore success strategies of several different company departments, evaluate payment technologies and security risks and discuss breach challenges. Knowing that better individuals equal better employees, we also feature leadership development opportunities that nurture the "whole employee" and help develop better leaders.

Asset protection is also about property. This past year has been filled with new industry challenges and threats, as well as different twists on old familiar tactics. This highlights the need for us to remain diligent in driving more creative solutions in all areas of asset protection throughout the organization. We'll have FOX News National Security Analyst, KT McFarland discuss today and tomorrow's flashpoints in asset protection from a global standpoint.

A strong reputation is what every asset professional strives for. By learning how to mitigate various risks, handle critical crisis management issues, and build world-class safety and risk cultures your organization's reputation can be strengthened and secured. Our keynote speaker, the Navy's first female Tomcat F-14 fighter pilot Carey Lohrenz, will tackle this area and share the fundamentals that helped her "win" in the cockpit at Mach 2, and also helps teams win in business--by learning the importance of remaining relevant.

People, property and reputation - the three keys to asset protection and all areas in which food retail asset protection professionals can fine-tune their skills.

Ex-President and Director of electronics-retailer TigerDirect sentenced to 5 years in prison - Two brothers' $10M kickback scheme  Two former senior executives for consumer electronics retailer TigerDirect Inc. and its parent Systemax Inc. were sentenced Tuesday in Florida federal court, each to several years in prison for their roles in a multimillion-dollar kickback scheme with foreign suppliers, and will be required to pay restitution. U.S. District Judge Jose E. Martinez handed Carl Fiorentino, 57, a prison term of over six years, while 55-year-old Gilbert Fiorentino got five years behind bars. Records show their scam cost Systemax at least $27 million in higher supply costs and that Carl Fiorentino alone received at least $9.5 million in kickbacks from a Taiwanese supplier, RICI International.

AutoZone seeks retrial in $186-million discrimination case
Auto parts retailer AutoZone Inc, on Wednesday asked for a new trial in the case of a San Diego area store manager who was awarded $186 million last year after a jury agreed she had been demoted and later fired after telling her bosses she was pregnant. At a hearing in San Diego Federal Court, the company asked for a retrial based on what it said were inappropriate incidents involving jurors. AutoZone's lawyer also said that the verdict was based on passion and should be overturned. Rosario Juarez, 43, began at AutoZone in 1999 as a cashier and worked her way up to store manager. She was demoted in 2005 after she told her manager she was pregnant and later filed a complaint over the demotion. Juarez was fired in 2008 amid allegations that she stole $400 from the store. But the loss prevention manager who got Juarez fired later testified she was told to target Juarez. After eight days of trial and less than two days of deliberations, a federal jury awarded Juarez $870,000 in damages and another $185 million in punitive damages. reuters.com

Senator calls for Lumber Liquidators investigation following '60 Minutes' report
The Senate is turning up the heat on Lumber Liquidators, and shares of the company are getting whacked.
In a letter sent to regulators on Wednesday, Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida) has asked the heads of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to test the company's flooring highlighted during a report on "60 Minutes" on Sunday night. "I ask that your agencies independently investigate and test these specific Chinese wood laminate products to determine if they present a risk to the public under the Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) authority under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act or the limits prescribed by Congress in the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act." Read the senator's full letter here. businessinsider.com

Target Makes $1 Billion Bet on Digital
On last week's earnings call with analysts, Target CEO Brian Cornell said the company's first priority was "to drive industry leading digital sales growth" and "become a leading omnichannel retailer." Yesterday, Mr. Cornell and his team began to provide analysts with some answers on how they intend to achieve those goals. For one, Target announced it would allocate roughly half of the company's $2.1 billion capital expenditures budget for technology, supply chain and inventory management upgrades to help connect more effectively and efficiently with digital consumers. retailwire.com

Interface Security Systems provides technology makeover for 8,200 Family Dollar stores  Systems integrator Interface Security Systems (ISS) is more than halfway through a technology makeover for all of Family Dollar's 8,200 retail store locations. The "Flat Rate Managed Services Project" bundle includes Internet, cellular backup, VoIP phone service, WiFi, PCI security series, intrusion detection, video surveillance and video verification. At Family Dollar, the "total overhaul" of technology will "facilitate a lot of new things," including the use of security video and other data points for business intelligence and mobile applications as well. The project has been underway for a couple of years. ISS completed a 100-store pilot project for Family Dollar in the fall of 2013. It was awarded the contract for all stores in April of 2014. The deployment started in July and is expected to be completed this June. ISS is converting close to 1,000 stores per month, which equates to about 50 stores per day. securitysystemsnews.com

Credit Card Breach at luxury hotel chain Mandarin Oriental
In response to questions from KrebsOnSecurity, upscale hotel chain Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has confirmed that its hotels have been affected by a credit card breach. Reached for comment about reports from financial industry sources about a pattern of fraudulent charges on customer cards that had all recently been used at Mandarin hotels, the company confirmed it is investigating a breach. krebsonsecurity.com

EMV Expected to Increase Application Fraud
The arrival of EMV chipped cards could trigger an increase in credit-card related scams, but analytics could help institutions combat the problem. "The U.S. has $3 billion in losses associated with the card-present fraud, when we roll EMV out where is that fraud going to migrate to? The fraudsters are not going to give up that type of income." Application fraud can take place several ways. Criminals often first commit typical identity theft, whereby they steal someone's identity to open an account. When successful, fraudsters often springboard into adding themselves to a valid account through ID manipulation. In ID manipulation, also called synthetic identity fraud, criminals use actual information, such as social-security numbers, to create fake identities. Technology research and consulting firm Gartner estimated synthetic identity fraud makes up 20% of current credit charge-offs and 80% of credit card fraud losses. cutimes.com

Apple Pay's 'fraud problem' stems from bank's easy verification process  Apple and its banker pals may have inadvertently lowered the barrier to credit card fraud by adding pay-by-wave technology to iPhones, security experts fear. After a credit or debit card is added to an iPhone's Apple Pay, the details are encrypted and sent to banks along with records on the user's iTunes account activity, transaction history and physical whereabouts, as explained in its Apple Pay support page here. These records are used by banks to decided whether to approve adding a card to Apple Pay or to request further checks over a followup phone call. The aim is to weed out people adding stolen cards to Apple Pay. The issue is that some US banks have made this verification easier than it ought to be by only asking callers to prove their identity using the last four digits of their social security number. Social security numbers are not particularly hard for hackers to obtain, and evidence is emerging that the whole setup makes it easier for crims to rack up fraudulent bills on Apple Pay than by traditional plastic theft. theregister.co.uk

Will Drones Fly in Retail? - It's already happening in Germany
Once reserved for sci-fi movies and high-tech war efforts, drones are quickly becoming part of the broader landscape. Amazon made headlines with its plans to make deliveries via drone, but there's an entire world of opportunity beyond that. Drones can help retailers in ways they've never imagined, from site selection and store design to security, building science and logistics. Retail industry futurist Doug Stephens says technology evolves so fast that the implausible can become the norm within a few years, pointing to the Internet and smartphones as examples of technological advances that went from obscurity to mainstream adoption by consumers and retailers in a short time. Stephens says the possibilities with drones are "too compelling for retailers to ignore. ... While we sit here in North America debating whether Amazon will eventually deliver packages by drone, DHL is already doing it in Germany," he says. nrf.com

Why Voice Biometrics Could Be The Next Game-Changer In Authentication
Voice biometrics authenticates a user based on numerous vocal characteristics like vocal tract geometry, harmonics, pitch and range, says AGNITiO. The authentication experience is practically invisible – and highly accurate.

Below are the four reasons why voice biometrics are key for strong authentication:

1) Security & Accuracy: Voice biometrics can offer more reliable, spoof-protected and accurate authentication thanks to technical improvements in microphones and processing power in both mobile devices and servers. Spoofing and hacking protection can also be implemented to combat replay attacks and unauthorized access.

2) Convenience: It is the least intrusive of all biometric modalities, and can be implemented with a one or two-second text-dependent passphrase, or with two to three-seconds of text-independent free speech. Higher levels of confidence to authenticate a transaction may depend on the transaction amount –for example, a bank will want a higher level of confidence to authenticate a $10,000 transaction as opposed to a $1,000 one.

3) Cost: Voice biometrics is more cost-effective – it doesn't require any hardware investment by the user. Microphones in mobile phones, tablets or PCs can be used so there are no additional costs.

4) Privacy: Server-based authentication engines provide control over service and data storage by the payment service provider. And for the consumer, the same authentication technology embedded in their device allows them to maintain control over their own biometric credentials, better protecting their privacy by eliminating the need to transfer sensitive information to servers. pymnts.com

New York Jewelry Store Owner Pleaded Guilty for Purchasing and Reselling Jewelry Stolen in Armed Robberies  A New York jeweler pleaded guilty in federal court in Atlanta Tuesday to two counts of interstate transportation of stolen property in connection with jewelry he purchased from an armed robbery ring and then sold in New York. Carlos Parra, 64, a resident of New Jersey, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones of the Northern District of Georgia. Parra admitted in court that he was contacted by a member of an armed robbery crew that stole over $100,000 in jewelry from a courier on Jan. 31, 2013. Parra flew from New York, where his jewelry business was based, to Atlanta to purchase the jewelry from the robbery crew for approximately $16,000. Parra admitted that he had dealt with these robbers or their associates in the past and knew the jewelry was stolen. Parra further admitted to purchasing jewelry from a robbery crew in Houston in August 2012. In that instance, the robbery crew stole over $500,000 from a jewelry courier during an armed robbery on Aug. 27, 2012. Parra admitted that he flew to Texas to purchase the stolen jewelry at a discounted rate because it was stolen. He later sold the jewelry in New York to wholesalers for a profit. fbi.gov

NY man charged with fraud in Mansfield - suspected of being part of larger fraud ring  A New York man was arraigned Wednesday in a Mansfield fraud case, but authorities allege he is connected to a larger fraud ring responsible for illegally obtaining $20,000 in cell phones and electronics. Kodio A. Kondon, 28, of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., was ordered held in jail on $10,000 cash bail after pleading innocent to related charges in Attleboro District Court.

Pleasant Prairie, WI man charged in two dozen retail thefts across three states
A man suspected in two dozen retail thefts in three states was arrested Friday in Pleasant Prairie. William C. Maysack, 30, of Pleasant Prairie, is charged with two counts of retail theft and one of possession of drug paraphernalia for a series of incidents in the village last month. Two other men are named in the complaints, but have not yet been charged.

Pleasant Prairie staff checked their electronics area and found one of each of those items missing, according to a criminal complaint. Security footage allowed them to identify two men who came in and took the items, removed the security sensors and the left the store.

Man pleads guilty for role in tri-state area multi-million dollar theft ring  One of more than a dozen people involved with a retail theft ring pleads guilty. Robert Savage pleaded guilty to one charge of corrupt business influence, a felony. Savage was one of the defendants involved in the Dealmakers case. In early August 2014, the FBI raided the Dealmaker's locations in Henderson and Newburgh along with an iPhone repair store on Washington Avenue. Detectives believe the theft ring's kingpins, Kyle Hudson and Michael Rupert, would have people steal goods from local stores and sell those goods on eBay. They're both expected to make their next court appearance later this month. tristatehomepage.com
