New York, NY - Jewelers' Security Alliance has released its 2015 Annual Crime Report covering crime against the jewelry industry in the U.S. The total number of crimes against the industry decreased from 1,381 in 2014 to 1,177 in 2015, a decrease of 14.7%. Total dollar losses also decreased from $77.8 million in 2014 to $69.3 million in 2015, a decrease of 10.9%.

Due to excellent work by the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, there were arrests of two major smash and grab robbery gangs in the first half of 2015. As a result of these arrests, there were half as many smash and grab robberies in the second half of 2015 (24) as in the first half of 2015 (48). For the full year 2015, smash and grab robberies numbered 72 compared to 110 in 2014.

Due to excellent work by the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, there was an arrest of a major rooftop burglary gang. As a result of the arrest of this gang, the number of burglaries in which the criminals entered from the roof decreased from 36 in 2014 to 19 in 2015, a decrease of 47.2%.

The number of jewelers killed in crimes against jewelry firms was two in 2015 compared to three in 2014, and the number of jewelers who were the victims of non-fatal shots declined from 15 in 2014 to 3 in 2015, an 80% decline.

The long term decline in dollar losses from crimes against jewelry firms in the U.S. has amounted to a 63.2% decline since 1998 in 2015 inflation adjusted dollars, and a 22.5% decline in the last five years.
SA President John Kennedy said, "While the diamond, jewelry and watch industry is still a dangerous business, nevertheless, the long term trend in jewelry crime is still firmly down. The significant decline that JSA has seen in crime is due to the greater sharing of crime information within the industry and with law enforcement, and from the terrific cooperation that the industry receives from the FBI and local law enforcement agencies." jewelrysecurity.org

Facial recognition technology used by high-end retailers sparks concerns in Canada
Security Technology Makes CTV's Canada AM Show

Consumers likely expect some level of scrutiny in stores where retailers regularly use security cameras to deter theft. But concerns are being raised about the extent of surveillance in some higher-end stores, and what exactly is being done with the data.

The American luxury department store chain Saks Fifth Avenue, which recently opened its first Canadian store in Toronto, is employing some of the world's most aggressive security and customer surveillance, according to a recent report in British newspaper The Guardian.

Privacy specialist Geoff White, counsel for the Public Interest Advocacy Centre in Ottawa, says the surveillance technology being used, which includes software that can recognize individual shoppers' faces, poses a number of risks.

"There have been reports of these companies trying to develop profiles using facial recognition software, and also other sources of data about the individual, to try and develop a better sense of who they are to better serve them products and to convert them into more profitable customers," White told CTV's Canada AM on Tuesday.

Stores are collecting other forms of data too, including personal information when consumers access free in-store Wi-Fi, log in using social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter.

"There's an information exchange there, and it raises questions about what sharing is happening and with whom," White said.

"But in the physical retail space, though, I question how aware the average Canadian is about the level of surveillance that may be happening."

White also said this degree of surveillance can result in some shoppers being discriminated against or treated differently. ctvnews.ca

Security Becomes A Rebrand, While Video Surveillance Guards Analytics
Emerging Technologies - Staying Competitive With eCommerce

Retail analytics gathered from in-store surveillance systems can be a boon for retailers, as long as they know how to access them and later implement the insights they provide back into their operations. To do this, there are several key factors, as a recent article from Security News Desk outlines. As the story points out, several major retail and grocery chains are already using video-based analytics and seeing significant returns on their investment, with benefits that go far beyond security. In order for other retailers to take advantage of the same benefits, several components must be in place.

To begin with, the right systems must be installed properly. The challenge for installers, as the Security News Desk article points out, is that instead of just approaching a retailer's security teams, more advanced surveillance solution options must be discussed with stakeholders from various departments, including marketing, IT and security. One of the nice things about these systems is that they are extremely scalable, allowing a retailer to make a small investment upfront and continue to expand capabilities as it sees a return on its investment.

As technology continues to advance, the future capabilities of these types of intelligent and integrated analytics/security systems are virtually endless. If traditional retailers who still maintain a real estate footprint want to stay competitive with their eCommerce counterparts, they need to continue to educate themselves about these emerging technologies and get on the bandwagon early, lest they be caught off guard as these technologies go mainstream. pymnts.com

High-end stores move registers out of sight or replace them with mobile devices; no more lines
More high-end boutiques and department stores are moving the machine out of sight or eliminating it entirely. Instead, sales associates walk the floors with mobile checkout devices or handle transactions in discreet nooks. Stores aim to make the experience of paying more elegant, akin to private shopping, and to eliminate a pain point that keeps some shoppers from completing a purchase-having to wait in a visible line. Hiding the cash register also forces shoppers to interact with the salespeople and might even encourage them to buy more. wsj.com

Chipotle's New Safety Protocols Work
Billerica, Mass., Chipotle shut down after employee diagnosed with norovirus
One confirmed norovirus case - Three suspected - employees only

Three employees called in sick for their shifts at the Boston Road restaurant on Tuesday, although there may have been up to four employees who were not feeling well.

"The employees did not come into the restaurant," Sandra Giroux, of the Billerica Board of Health, said. "They called in sick. Chipotle has voluntarily shut down and are throwing away all of the food items in the store and are sanitizing everything according to their new protocol." The restaurant will likely be closed for a few days while the facility is cleaned and sanitized. wcvb.com

Why JCP CEO Isn't Closing More Stores - For now at least
Buy online pick up at store - Paying off for J.C. Penney

J.C. Penney's online sales are booming. Many of its stores are in struggling malls. And sales per square foot are about one-third below levels of five years ago. Yet despite all that, the resurgent department store's new CEO, Marvin Ellison, is adamant that J.C. Penney ( JCP 1.54% ) won't undertake any wholesale closings of stores in its 1,020-location fleet.

Ellison says he used to also think Penney needed far fewer stores, but he's changed his mind, and argues that Penney needs those stores more than ever as e-commerce and stores feed off of each other.

Data told him that Penney's future hinges on stores and e-commerce interacting to spur companywide sales. By the time back-to-school rolls around, all Penney stores will be equipped to let shoppers pick up online orders the same day, helping the retailer catch up to a service Macy's and Kohl's already offer. Ellison last month told investors that shoppers coming in to pick up an online order typically end up spending another 35% on that trip. And Ellison, a former supply chain guru at Home Depot HD 0.38% , can now use 250 stores to fill online orders.  fortune.com

Bel Air man pleads guilty in $2.5 million fraud scheme

The PayPal Global Asset Protection Investigations team assisted Baltimore's Homeland Security with their extensive three year investigation into a major counterfeiting and fraudulent sports memorabilia case. The case involved a company creating and registering PayPal and Amazon.com accounts to receive payments from customers, purchase counterfeit sports jerseys in bulk from China and affix fraudulent autographs to the product. This activity allowed the product sold to appear genuine and be endorsed by authentic autographs of well-known athletes and sports figures, using fake certificates of authenticity. According to the criminal information, the company unlawfully obtained approximately $2.5 million from buyers of the fraudulent items.

Home Depot will pay up to $19.5 million for massive 2014 data breach
It also agreed to hire a chief information security officer

Home Depot will pay at least another $19.5 million in compensation to customers affected by its massive 2014 data breach, as part of a $161m pot of pre-tax expenses it has set aside, according to new court documents. Included in that figure is a reported $13 million to reimburse customers for their losses and $6.5 million to provide them with one and a half years of identity protection services.

The papers filed with a federal court in the firm's home city of Atlanta disclose the terms of a preliminary settlement with Home Depot customers which has yet to be approved by the court, according to Reuters.

Home Depot was not required to admit any wrongdoing. The retailer also agreed to improve its data security, including hiring a chief information security officer.

First disclosed by the retailer in late 2014, the breach included the theft of data pertaining to about 56 million payment cards, as well as 53 million email addresses, making it one of the largest to date.Those affected shopped at Home Depot stores between April and September of that year in the U.S. and Canada. The attackers gained access to Home Depot's network using the login credentials of one of its contractors, it said at the time.  pcworld.com infosecurity-magazine.com

US cyber pros test skills in exercise meant to stop attacks
The weeklong event run by the Homeland Security Department and hosted by the U.S. Secret Service is now a decade old. More than 1,000 U.S. cybersecurity professionals are participating in - and testing how well they respond to - a mock attack. They'll be working together for three days in Washington and across the nation.

Retail and health care have been in the headlines - and, frankly, in the crosshairs for a lot of criminals," Touhill said. Household names like Target Corp., The Home Depot, UCLA Health Systems and Anthem Inc. have all faced recent cyberattacks that compromised millions of their customers' data.

Their event has one, overarching scenario, with roughly 1,000 smaller events - spurred by a phone call, an email or a news article - that could be indicators of an looming cyberattack. cnsnews.com

FTC Opens Inquiry Into Payment Card Data Security Audits
FTC Will Be Watching Retailers Audit Results

The Federal Trade Commission has directed PricewaterhouseCoopers, Mandiant, Verizon Enterprise Solutions and a half-dozen more auditing firms to provide the agency with details about how they conduct assessments to measure businesses' compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, the regulator said Monday.

As part of an initiative to study the state of credit card industry data security auditing, the FTC sent orders to nine companies that conduct screening of those who comply with the industry standard, known as PCI DSS.

The orders direct the auditors to file a special report within 45 days about their assessment process, including the ways they interact with the retailers and other companies they assess, examples of security assessments, and information about whether they provide additional services such as forensic audits. law360.com

Offering free connectivity to consumers comes with risk
Businesses must prevent Wi-Fi from becoming a gateway for attack against their systems

Businesses must prevent Wi-Fi from becoming a gateway for attack against their systems, keep users from conducting illicit activity on the system and determine how to prevent squatters.

It's important that businesses ask how Wi-Fi increases profitability and ensure the system meets any legal standards for protecting users.

"Data breaches related to Wi-Fi are usually the result of an organization's failure to sufficiently secure the wireless systems used to transmit sensitive data." A 2007 case involving a large off-price retailer was "largely caused by the company's use of the substandard [wired equivalent privacy] security protocol that hackers easily defeated."

Breaches that expose consumer information are typical of cyber hack attacks. "The fraud risks ... are generally to end users rather than the provider," Capers says, "and include everything from man-in-the-middle attacks to the harvesting of files on the connected devices."

"Free Wi-Fi systems should be hosted on a stand-alone network that is not connected to systems that hold sensitive data," Capers says. "If the Wi-Fi is not on a stand-alone network, businesses should ensure that any potentially sensitive data is secure and protected by a firewall."

When launching free Wi-Fi service, businesses "must ensure that they are in compliance with relevant laws and regulations, such as the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act."  nrf.com

Neiman Marcus to Combat Email Fraud
Trying to ensure criminals don't reap the profits

Neiman Marcus joins growing list of retail brands protecting consumers from email fraud with authentication-based anti-phishing technology. In an effort to identify and block fraudulent messages from cybercriminals attempting to use the famed retailer's brand to dupe consumers, Neiman Marcus will deploy Return Path's Email Fraud Protection solution. Neiman Marcus chose data solutions provider Return Path as their partner in this initiative based on the company's ability to detect and mitigate both domain spoofing and brand spoofing attacks-a defense offering currently beyond the scope of authentication-based technology-preventing more email fraud from reaching consumers.

Phishing emails that imitate a retailer's brand or domain address to fool consumers are a major threat to a retailer's image. While a retailer may not be financially liable as in the event of a network breach, the resulting loss of sales and loyalty can be as bad or even worse. Thus other retailers should follow the lead of Neiman Marcus to protect against security incidents that occur outside, as well as within, their firewalls.  chainstoreage.com businesswire.com

Top 5 schemes fraudsters are using against brands
Fraud is an ever evolving issue for brands across the digital and offline worlds. SaaS platform Kount has identified five schemes fraudsters are using against businesses right now.

First, social media banking.

This type of fraud victimizes consumers by using a brand hijacking or by hacking a legitimate website/store. The fraudsters them impersonate the business to obtain the consumer's information.

Second, zero-click fraud.

"Zero-click fraud is a new type of online fraud that requires no user interaction and has evolved from older click hijacking fraud (an example of this would be when a site visitor clicks, for example, on a video play button, but instead of the video, they have downloaded ransomware onto their phone or computer). The new instance of "zero-click" fraud was discovered by Symantec security researchers who found that somewhere in Japan, an adult site operator decided that waiting one second after the user lands on a fraudulent page is more than enough to trigger the action they want from the user (in this case, the users were falsely led to believe that by accessing the page, they were subscribed to a premium service, for which they had to pay a fee of $2,000)," writes the company.

Third, triangulation schemes.

These criminals use phishing, returns and credit card fraud to make their bank. First, they set up phone online auctions, and then use a stolen credit card to purchase the auctioned item from an order filler like Amazon, or they recruit existing auction site members to sell their stolen goods through auction sites.

Fourth, chip and skim.

"Chip and skim involves cloning or otherwise subverting the chip in new EMV cards. There is already a vulnerability within chip cards that allows a criminal to generate the supposedly secure unique transaction code generated by the chip, with experts saying it's likely only a matter of time before they can clone the chip as well," writes Kount.

Fifth, reshipper fraud.

Similar to triangulation, these fraudsters use stolen credit cards to buy goods, ship them to 'mules' who then re-ship to the original fraudster. The stolen goods are then sold, usually in foreign countries. bizreport.com

Seattle, WA: Mother & Daughter busted running 'industrial-scale' ID theft Ring; up to $10,000 per day in fraudulent charges
Police said Tuesday they believe they've cracked a mother-daughter ID theft crime ring that committed millions of dollars in fraud throughout the region. Seattle police said law enforcement officers from the SPD, King County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Postal Service served a warrant at a home in Skyway, where detectives believe a 46-year-old woman and her 26-years daughter have been "running an industrial-scale identification theft operation." Inside the two-story home, police said they found a half-dozen fake Washington State IDs - each featuring the 26-year-old suspect's picture with a different name - lying out in the open, along with printers, blank checks, laptops, tablet computers and large boxes of jewelry. "The garage of the home was also stacked to the ceiling with suspected stolen tools, luggage, generators and other items, and the search also turned up 14 grams of methamphetamine, 10 pounds of marijuana and a handgun," the news release said. Investigators believe the suspects have racked up as much as $10,000 in charges a day under the identities of theft victims in Normandy Park, Medina, Everett, Auburn, and other cities in the Seattle area. q13fox.com
