INFORMATION SHARING AND EXCELLENT POLICE WORK CONTINUE TO DRIVE DOWN CRIME
AGAINST THE JEWELRY INDUSTRY
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%
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."
Facial recognition technology used by high-end retailers sparks concerns in
Security Technology Makes CTV's Canada AM Show
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 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
"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
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.
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

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

Costs Associated with Employee Turnover in Your Restaurant with Key
Are you experiencing high turnover? You are not alone. Restaurant Owners face
turnover rates of
more than 62%. The majority of those employees quit, sometimes
on poor terms. When employees quit or are terminated from their jobs, it is
vital that their keys get returned or security measures dictate the locks will
need to be changed - and fast. InstaKey provides a KeyControl Program for Restaurants that helps reduce costs
associated with high employee turnover through use of simple rekey technology

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.

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
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
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

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

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.

in Kent County, MI
Detroit man used stolen credit card information to buy $100,000 in merchandise,
including $40,000 at Kent County businesses. Police say the suspects, from the
Detroit area, used stolen credit card information to buy gift cards, iPads,
electronic games and other products.
On Friday, March 4, sheriff's deputies arrested Calhoun. Sheriff's deputies and
Detroit police then searched two Detroit homes where police found property such
as a sofa, television and collectible coins bought with stolen account numbers.
Police also found hundreds of credit cards, credit-card numbers, Social Security
numbers, personal information and equipment to encode magnetic strips on credit
cards with stolen account information.
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

traffic stop for no license plates on a vehicle. After search warrants were
obtained, officials said they seized more than $150,000. Police said the cash
could be linked to several victims throughout North America. "Online shopping
venues and auction sites have made it easier than ever for unsuspecting citizens
to become victims of Internet theft," officer Michelle Berling said in a press
TX: Two men charged in thefts from Walmart and The Home Depot
Two men were charged Tuesday morning in connection with a theft Sunday from the

Wal-Mart the day before. Francisco Guerrero Jr. and Leandro Balderas are accused
of stealing chainsaws and trimmers totaling $1,595 in value from the Home Depot
at 120 S. Shary Road at 11:55 a.m. Balderas, 21, of Palmhurst, placed the
merchandise in a cart and fled through the garden area without paying. Balderas
then placed the stolen supplies into a black truck that was waiting for him and
then removed its front license plate before speeding off.

were taken into custody around 7 p.m. after investigators with the Texas
Comptroller of Public Accounts, Midland Police detectives and FBI task force
officers observed the two men assisting each other to illegally pump motor fuel
at a Stripe's Convenience Store. Investigators followed the brothers to Stripe's
after surveillance cameras linked their vehicles to alleged diesel fuel thefts
at multiple Kent Kwik locations throughout Midland. A Kent Kwik loss prevention
representative initially reported the "bulk" thefts to Midland Police, sparking
an investigation that ultimately spanned local, state and federal law

along a highway, where Sturgeon gave him a ride. Authorities believe the
shooting happened after a fight inside the car. Dobbs says police believe that
Wisdom also shot at other vehicles.
City, NJ: Man in 'police-type' uniform, carrying gun at Hudson Mall is detained
Jersey City police have detained a man who was seen wearing a law enforcement
uniform and carrying a gun inside the Hudson Mall, a witness said. The man was
spotted Tuesday morning by an off-duty police officer who described the man as
suspicious and wearing "a police-type uniform" and a gun holster, said Joe
Shine, a freelance photographer for The Jersey Journal. A badge emblem on the
man's shirt said "U.S. Police." Police responded and detained the man, who was
not carrying any identification cards. Police also found some items in the trunk
of the man's car that worried them enough to summon a bomb squad robot and a
water cannon. Among the items pulled from the trunk was a vest that read
"POLICE" and under that it read "U.S. Agent."

A career is like a horse race that starts fresh every day, every week, every
inventory period, every management change and with every new employer. Quite
frankly, it never stops and you don't want it to actually because if it does,
then you're not in the game and being in the game is what it's all about. And as
in every race, some days you win, some days you show, some days you place and
some days you just down right lose. The bottom line is learning how to lose with
dignity and how to win with humility. But the most important thing is just
staying in the game and keeping focused.
