Stolen credit-card data from retailer breaches running rampant on Apple Pay -
80% of unauthorized purchases are on Apple's own store
Apple Inc.'s new mobile-payment system has been hit by a wave of fraudulent
transactions using credit-card data stolen in recent breaches of big retailers,
including Home Depot Inc. and Target Corp., people familiar with the matter
said. About 80% of the unauthorized purchases have been for big-ticket items
bought with smartphones at Apple's own stores, one person with knowledge of the
situation said. Those Apple products have a higher resale value than most of
those available through other merchants that have signed on to the Apple Pay
system, such as Whole Foods Market Inc. and Panera Bread Co. The Apple Pay
system itself hasn't been penetrated by hackers. Rather, fraudsters are entering
stolen card data into phones, which can then be used to make purchases without a
physical card being present. The bogus purchases are a setback for Apple's
high-profile foray into electronic payments, even though banks are responsible
for verifying customer information before cards can be used with phones.
Apple hasn't provided data on the number of Apple Pay users but says that the
service accounted for two of every three dollars spent in the U.S. via mobile
payments on the three major credit-card networks. The fraud highlights
how compromised card data can be valuable to cybercriminals long after merchants
secure holes in their payment systems.
Who 'owns' an investigation into a security breach?
The last thing an organization needs when launching an investigation into any
kind of security breach are confusion and disorganization. If it is not clear
who is really in charge, or what responsibilities fall to what departments, that
is adding trouble to trouble. But that, according to the Security Executive
Council (SEC), an Atlanta-based research and advisory firm, is too often the
case. The SEC found that organizations, "may be responsible for up to 67
different types of investigations and up to 13 different business functions
could be engaged in these investigative activities." Those business functions
range from audit to business conduct and ethics, corporate security, compliance,
crisis management, environmental health and safety, governance, government
affairs, HR, information security, legal, privacy and risk management. An
effective investigation cannot be fragmented. It has to be unified, with a clear
leader, clear lines of responsibility and comprehensive lines of communication.
Former White House CIO partners with messaging expert to deliver cybersecurity
resources to retailers Calibration, LLC and Fortalice Solutions, LLC
form a partnership to help retailers tackle cybersecurity awareness for their
front-line employees. The costs for security events, like data breaches, are
reduced by 76 percent when employees are effectively trained. This partnership
combines Fortalice Solutions' un-matched cybersecurity expertise with
Calibration's proven formula of inspiring action within corporate cultures to
create a valuable awareness solution for retailers. "With the least expensive
security breach costing one retailer more than $750,000, retailers are in a
must-act position when it comes to securing their digital assets," said Theresa
Payton, chief advisor and chief executive officer of Fortalice Solutions, LLC. "We're
excited about this partnership because it helps retailers communicate with an
audience most vulnerable to cyber scams: their employees."
Could Costs Impede Obama's Cybersecurity Info-Sharing Plan?
Small and mid-size businesses might not be able to afford participating in
voluntary programs to share and receive cyberthreat information, as President
Obama has proposed, industry representatives told Congress at a March 4 hearing.
Smaller companies - generally those with fewer than 1,000 employees that cannot
afford to hire CISOs, buy tailored cybersecurity tools and furnish employees
with customized IT security training - also would lack the funds to participate
in new information-sharing efforts, Rand Corp. cybersecurity expert Martin
Libicki told the House Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection
and Security Technologies.
Former Sears CISO tells lessons learned from retailer's threat-detection big
data security system Wednesday at the 2015 SecureWorld conference,
Demetrios "Laz" Lazarikos, IT security researcher and strategist for Los
Angeles-based Blue Lava Consulting LLC, recounted his time working as the chief
information security officer for the online division of retail giant Sears Inc.,
where he implemented a threat-detection system using big data security
analytics. Lazarikos said Sears built a security data correlation and risk
engine and had all of its data routed into a single security big data system,
including behavior analytics, cyberthreat intelligence, geographic intelligence
and other alerts. Once fully implemented, Lazarikos said, the platform yielded
impressive results. Before implementing the big data system, it would take 10
people 12 hours to research each alert to determine what had actually happened,
but after the system was in place, that same process took two people just 10
minutes per alert. Lazarikos described a number of surprising findings from the
data, including the realization that if searches for women's shoes or clothing
were originating from more than three different source countries at the same
time, it was an indicator that a DDoS attack was in the works. Each of these
scenarios highlighted one of the biggest lessons learned from the new
platform, namely how much the information security team's activities overlapped
with those of the fraud team; each attack scenario might begin as a security
issue, but if successful, it would often cross over to become an incident for
the fraud group.
LPF forms the Institute for Professional Certification & Accreditation to set
academic standards The International Foundation for Protection
Officers (IFPO) and The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) announce the formation
of the Institute for Professional Certification and Accreditation (IPCA). The
Institute will be charged with the design and implementation of a process
setting standards to accredit academic programs in the Applied Social Sciences
such as Asset Protection/Loss Prevention/Retail Security and uniformed security.
IPCA will also work to establish accreditation of professional certifications in
the above mentioned areas of specialization.
Specialty Stores Continue to Add Jobs
Specialty stores and discounters boosted payrolls in February, while department
stores shed jobs and the overall monthly unemployment rate declined slightly,
the U.S. Department of Labor's monthly employment report revealed Friday.
Apparel and accessories stores added 7,600 seasonally adjusted jobs to
employ 1.37 million in February, while general merchandise stores, a category
that includes discounters and department stores, added 800 jobs to employ
3.14 million. Department stores cut 2,900 jobs to employ 1.33 million. In
the overall economy, employers added 295,000 jobs as the unemployment rate fell
to 5.5 percent from 5.7 percent in January.
Historically cold February freezes retail sales - Down 10.4% from last year
This winter has not only frozen roads and roofs, but also had a chilling effect
on retail sales. According to the monthly Retail Performance Pulse from
RetailNext, there was a 10.4% year-over-year decrease in sales on a 12.5%
decline in traffic at brick-and-mortar stores for the retail month of February
(Feb. 1-28). The lowest sales, traffic, and number of transactions occurred
during the first week of the month, when winter weather impacted the Northeast
region in particular.

Target Canada's $1.9-billion debt under court review - sale of 11 sites approved
The sale of 11 Target Canada properties was approved in Ontario Superior Court
on Thursday but the fate of the $1.9 billion payment the deal was supposed to
trigger remains unresolved. "We absolutely intend to challenge that $1.9 billion
payment and claim," said Lou Brzezinski, a lawyer at Blaney McMurtry LLP.
Brzezinski represents five suppliers owed approximately $10 million. Under terms
of an agreement between Target Canada and a related company called Target Canada
Property LLC (Target Propco), the early termination of leases was to trigger a
$1.9 billion payment from Target Canada to Target Propco.
Retailers reap rewards after Target's failed Canadian expansion
Major retailers that fortified their businesses to help fend off the Target
Canada invasion are now enjoying the fruits of their labour. Loblaw Cos. Ltd.
and Canadian Tire Corp. Ltd. posted strong fourth-quarter results last week,
reflecting efforts to shore up their operations in recent years. A week earlier,
Wal-Mart Canada Corp. reported higher fourth-quarter sales, reaping the rewards
of initiatives such as rapidly expanding its grocery business. When Target Corp.
announced plans to expand to Canada four years ago, retailers here bulked up on
acquisitions and other strategic investments to help fight off the big U.S.
chain. Now, as Target prepares to leave Canada, unable to see a path to profit
before 2021, its rivals here are enjoying some record results. Retailers such as
Canadian Tire said Target ultimately didn't cut into their businesses much, and
the discount retailer's current going-out-of-business sales aren't having a big
effect either. Target "didn't have a material impact before" on Canadian Tire,
chief executive officer Michael Medline said Thursday, and "they are not going
to have a material impact coming out."
Montreal considers ban on plastic shopping bags
The city will hold a public consultation in May on whether to ban the thin
plastic bags used to pack purchases at groceries and other retail stores in
Montreal. Several cities in the United States have banned plastic store bags,
and California has become the first U.S. state to do so. Similarly, the European
Union has passed legislation that obliges member states to reduce the use of
thin plastic bags by 50 per cent by 2019 and by 80 per cent by 2025.

RCMP bust sophisticated theft, fraud ring - a "counterfeit credit card factory"
Coquitlam RCMP has shut down what they believe to be a "sophisticated
counterfeit credit card factory." Today, police displayed hundreds of pieces of
stolen mail and identification including credit cards, passports and drivers'
licenses. Police allege the accused, 45-year-old Alvin Chand, was stealing mail
from across the Lower Mainland and selling it. Chand was already known to police
when he was charged and later pled guilty to a series of criminal charges
related to stealing or forging credit cards in 2013. He was sentenced to one
year in custody and one year of probation. Among the credit cards and mail
found, police also seized a loaded handgun, $10,000 cash, stolen property from
around the Lower Mainland, drugs, high-end specialty tools and a host of
weapons. Grimmer said they also found more than 700 pieces of stolen mail and
more than 300 pieces of ID. Some of the items were stolen from as far away as
Security guard could face charges for Toronto McDonald's shooting
As police investigate last weekend's shooting that left two men dead at a Danforth Avenue McDonald's, they must grapple with a key question: did the
off-duty security guard have a legitimate reason to believe his life was in
danger when he opened fire? "There's no doubt that he's a killer," criminal
lawyer David Butt says of the security guard who shot the men. "The question is
whether he's a murderer."

How will Samsung Pay compare to Apple Pay?
As you might have guessed, Samsung Pay will be able to be used at the same
stores that accept Apple Pay, but Galaxy users have a serious advantage. Since
Samsung acquired LoopPay, the phones also sport MST technology, which allows it
to be recognized by stores with magnetic credit card readers (you know, like
almost all of them) giving Samsung Pay a far wider reach than Apple. Samsung Pay
is as secure as Apple Pay. Cards are locked until your fingerprint opens them
up, and credit card information is stored and transmitted as encrypted tokens
that ensure your card data can't be hacked or breached. Samsung is also taking
Apple's approach to privacy-the company won't collect data on where users shop
or what they spend.
Merchants Push For Tokenization Over EMV
Instead of EMV, merchants want non-proprietary tokenization that can protect
both in-store and e-commerce transactions. EMV can't do that, Garner said,
adding that from a merchant's perspective, card brands like Visa and MasterCard
are the only ones who come out ahead in the EMV migration.

of Ohio Brothers Arrested in $2.7 Million Money Laundering Scheme Two
brothers are locked up after being arrested Tuesday during a federal raid linked
to alleged money laundering. Mohamed Mobarak, 26, and Ahmad Mobarak, 22, are
accused of obtaining stolen credit card numbers and placing the unauthorized
information on legitimate gift cards to purchase electronics, cigarettes, and
real pre-paid gift cards. In federal court documents obtained by ABC 6/FOX 28,
prosecutor's claim more than 7,000 stolen credit card numbers are involved in
the conspiracy which has resulted in an intended loss of $2.7 million dollars.
The two men were among five people arrested Tuesday when U.S. Secret Service
agents and local police raided several convenience stores and seized 44
automatic teller machines in connection with a year-long investigation into
credit card and tax fraud and identity theft.
take more than $1M in watches from Charleston jewelry store More than
a million dollars in merchandise was stolen during an armed robbery Wednesday at
a downtown jewelry store, according to a police incident report. Authorities say
two male subjects, one armed with a hammer and the other with a gun, robbed the
Demetre Jewelers on Wednesday at 11:23 a.m. The pair left the store with an
estimated $1.05 million in merchandise, according to the incident report.
According to police, one of the suspects ordered an employee to the ground,
while the other broke the case and stole Rolex watches. The hammer was used to
smash a showcase, said CPD spokesman Charles Francis. Investigators describe
both of the suspects as black males in their 20s and wearing black masks. One
suspects is described as 6'2" and having a large build, while the other is
described as 5'8" with a thin build.
Operation: Operation "Not So Lucky" nabs 5 suspects in Polk County On
Thursday, March 05, 2015, Polk County Sheriff's Office undercover detectives
served three search warrants and arrested five suspects during an Organized
Retail Theft Investigation "Operation Not So Lucky." In the investigation,
deputies received tips about several businesses buying stolen goods. Deputies
approached 14 convenience store businesses in Polk County-9 in Lakeland, 2 in
Winter Haven, and 3 in the Lake Wales area-offering to supply stolen merchandise
for sale. Only three stores agreed to purchase stolen merchandise. In January
2015, officers with the Lake Wales Police Department contacted members of the
PCSO Organized Retail Theft unit advising them they had information about
businesses buying stolen merchandise for resale in their stores. A joint
investigation revealed several local stores were purchasing stolen goods then
reselling the merchandise in their establishments. Acting in an undercover
capacity, detectives confirmed the above listed suspects were engaging in
dealing in stolen property and/or selling counterfeit merchandise in businesses
located in Lake Wales and Lakeland. Deputies also received tips that "The Meat
Man" (Ceasar Pugh) was known to steal and re-sell stolen meat from local grocery
stores. He was also arrested after he bought meat from undercover deputies that
was represented as stolen.
Members of Female-Dominated Denver ID Theft Ring Busted
We've grown accustomed to criminal enterprises dominated by men. In the case of
an alleged identity theft ring, however, prosecutors say women were in charge -
and females represent six of the eight people named in an indictment featuring a
staggering 81 counts. That document, on view below, lists 35 ID theft victims
whose losses totaled nearly $50,000, with additional documentation for an
attempted theft of another $11,000. Also indicted were Ernest Daniels, Matrice
Ford, Shaqweila Phillips, Tony Phillips, Tashena Reid and Destinee Segura.
Hunter is said to have stolen identifying information from her sister, Lesha
Butler, to get a job at Emeritus at Highline, an assisted living facility. At
Emeritus, prosecutors say Hunter and company stole checks from at least one
at-risk adult's bedroom, as well as one of Hunter's co-workers. Afterward, the
assorted parties are accused of using stolen, forged or counterfeit checks to
steal money from credit unions, banks and grocery stores. Hunter and Tasha
Phillips were allegedly tasked with driving their recruits to the locations
where they passed the checks.

Philadelphia police are mourning the death of an officer who was shot in the
head and killed after he and his partner exchanged gunfire with two suspects who
were trying to rob a video game store. Police said the officer, Robert Wilson
III, fired back as he was being shot by suspects on either side of him. One
suspect was struck and taken to a hospital while the other was in custody.
Wilson was inside a GameStop, located in a north Philadelphia strip mall, when
the two suspects entered and announced a robbery, Ramsey said. The partner also
exchanged gunfire with the suspects, but was not shot. Both suspects have prior

Cashier shot in attempted robbery at Yakima convenience store
A cashier at a North Fifth Avenue convenience store was shot in the torso during
an attempted robbery Thursday night. Police are still looking for the suspected
shooter and a woman who was with him, police spokesman Mike Bastinelli said. The
cashier was outside the store painting when an armed man came up and forced him

police, at which point the man abandoned the cart full of items and Jernigan,
who got into the driver's seat, shouted "Get in the car! Get in the car!" as
everyone piled in. As Jernigan backed out of the handicapped spot, she nearly

We're always given the advice to think before you act, but this professor

if you expect to win long term. Daily victories are nothing without a long-term
plan. They fade quickly and leave the audience expecting more, which only a plan
and strategy will satisfy. So after your next victory, ask yourself what am I
going to do next?
