Career paths are "never more precarious than at the arrival of a new CEO" or CFO
or COO - depending on where you report "A new CEO is always evaluating
senior executives, position by position." "It can be naïve to think you are
somehow immune." Last year, 1,341 CEOs departed, the highest number since 2008,
according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc., which tracks CEO moves at
private and public companies and government entities in the U.S. Of the 204 CEO
departures so far this year, 159 have been replaced and half of those are with
an executive from outside the company, the outplacement firm said Thursday.
Often an outsider CEO is hired to fix problems and can be impatient. You should
research the newcomer, Mr. Wardell said. Figure out how technology-literate the
new leader is by looking at his career history. "Get to know the CEO's
priorities. What this guy is trying to do and what you have to do to support
it." Then provide an accurate assessment of your existing programs and be very
honest about your departments capabilities. "It takes a frank, calm assessment
of the department and people and the abilities they have or don't have." The
idea is to help the new CEO understand which of his plans is possible, in what
timeframe, because the board and investors are watching, he said. "No CEO wants
to hit a stone wall at 100 m.p.h. They have to know." Editor's Note: You
can apply this to virtually any new boss or senior manager who joins the company
and has direct influence and impact on your pyramid. Obviously it's a stressful
time for any executive all the way down to the single unit LPM level when a new
store manager comes in. But at the senior level the stakes are higher as the
entire program is questioned, reviewed, and cost justified. The real challenge
is that you manage it well and be ready to present your entire program in
detail. And it might be a good time to review everything yourself and look at
reinventing different aspects if need be. That certainly sends the message that
your engaged, flexible, and always looking to improve deliverables and results.
Kroger offers $25,000 reward in killing outside Atlanta store of construction
worker The Kroger Co. is offering a $25,000 reward for leads in the
killing of an Alabama construction worker outside one of its grocery stores in
east Atlanta. Atlanta police said 38-year-old Joshua Richey of Hayden, Ala., was
killed outside a Kroger on Ponce de León Avenue Tuesday afternoon in what
appears to have been a robbery. Richey's co-worker, Jason Shelton, said the two
were working outside the store when an unknown man entered their pickup truck.
When Richey approached the truck, the suspect shot through the window, killing
Liquidators fighting back
Rocked by a "60 Minutes" expose more than a week ago, Toano, Virginia-based
Lumber Liquidators emphasized "Our products are safe," during a business update
conference call on Thursday.Tom Sullivan, the company's founder and chairman
who was grilled by Anderson Cooper on the CBS news program, did not participate
in the call. But president and CEO Rob Lynch took the offensive. "First and
foremost, I want to reassure all of you, all of our customers and the general
public that we are confident that all of our products are safe and none of our
products pose significant health or safety issues," Lynch said. While "60
Minutes" accused the company of excessive levels of formaldehyde in its laminate
flooring, Lynch's defense of the company included a deep dive into the role of
fromaldehyde. "As lamination actually helps seal-in the formaldehyde from the
core, as '60 Minutes' acknowledged, formaldehyde emissions arising from our
products are a small fraction of the levels the media has discussed." Lynch also
hammered home five steps the 350-store retail company takes that go above and
beyond the regulatory requirements: From a financial perspective, the company
said comp-store sales following the broadcast of the "60 Minutes" episode fell
about 13%. The company's stock price has dropped about 50% in the last month.

Senate panel secretly approves cyberthreat sharing bill
A U.S. Senate committee has voted in secret to approve a controversial bill that
seeks to encourage businesses to share information about cyberthreats with each
other and with government agencies. The Senate Intelligence Committee, meeting
behind closed doors, voted 14-1 late Thursday to approve the Cybersecurity
Information Sharing Act [CISA], even though Senator Ron Wyden, who cast the lone
vote against the legislation, said it doesn't adequately protect privacy. The
legislation would protect companies that share cyberthreat information from
consumer lawsuits and would set up an information-sharing portal at the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, committee leaders said. The committee will
release the text of the bill after amendments are added to it, it said in a news

Management of Crabtree Valley Mall Respond to Incident Involving Teens in
Raleigh Last month a group of parents spoke out saying their sons had
been kicked out of Crabtree Valley Mall without just cause. On Feb. 28, the
young males were approached by a security guard in the food court saying they
were loitering and told them to leave. Their parents contend they were not doing
anything wrong and that the boys were victims of racial profiling. A letter from
the mall's General Manager Bobby Medlin read in part, "We have concluded that
the young men involved should not have been asked by our officers to leave the
mall. From our review, it appears that the young men were seated in the food
court for about 10 minutes. That was not long enough to be a violation of the
mall's policy regarding loitering. We will review with all our officers how to
appropriately enforce our loitering and food-court policies."

Checkpoint Systems Introduces New Solutions for Food Retailers to Reduce Shrink,
Enhance Merchandise Availability
iS AutoPeg Tag, 4210 EP Food Label Can Be
Applied In-Store or at Source
Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise
availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced here at the
FMI Asset Protection Conference two solutions for food retailers that are
specifically designed to reduce shrink and boost merchandise availability for
iS AutoPeg Tag
Checkpoint's iS AutoPeg Tag offers food retailers secure protection for
high-risk peg hook merchandise such as batteries, razor blades and ink
cartridges with a one-step, pinless tag. This solution snaps quickly and safely
on single- or double-hole packaging and can be easily removed at point of sale
(POS) for reuse. It is lightweight and strong, preserves product branding, is
RFID upgradeable for inventory visibility and can be source applied. A senior LP
executive from a large mass merchant said, "We tested this product for a large
number of SKUs as part of a major pilot study and were impressed with how easy
it was to apply and remove at POS; most importantly, with AutoPeg we increased
sales by 30 percent compared to the EAS on-shelf protection method we use for
personal care products. In addition, we are able to more efficiently manage
shelf and warehouse space."
4210 EP Food Label
The 4210 EP Food Label is one of the very few microwave-safe certified solutions
on the market and features enhanced security performance for food retailers
needing to protect fresh and frozen food items that are being increasingly
targeted for theft. It is one of the world's smallest food-safe RF label, and
can easily be integrated into price/scale labels for maximum protection,
enabling food retailers to improve on-shelf availability. In addition, because
the solution is very thin, it maximizes space on retailers' planograms. Like the
iS AutoPeg, it can be applied in store or at source, which saves labor time and
ensures all high-risk merchandise arrives secure and ready for sale. In
addition, Checkpoint offers custom printing options for the new food label,
which allows retailers to print store messages on labels, including their brand,
if so desired.

Former Perlis CFO pleads guilty to embezzling $2.8 million from employer, with
help from the eBay Global Asset Protection team
A former executive of a New Orleans clothing business pleaded guilty Thursday
(Feb. 26) to federal charges that he embezzled about $2.8 million from his
employer over a 19-year period. Michael Sapera, who served as both chief
financial officer and director of information technology for Perlis Clothing,
was charged Jan. 30 in a four-count bill of information with bank fraud,
aggravated identity theft and wire fraud. U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon
set sentencing on May 28. In its bill of information, the government said that
from July 1996 through April 2014 Sapera stole about $2.2 million in corporate
checks belonging to the company and forged the signature of his employer on
approximately 430 stolen checks, which he endorsed to himself and deposited into
his personal bank account. Beginning on July 15, 2011 and continuing to Aug. 18,
2014, Sapera, a Mandeville resident, was involved in wire transfers from the
company's bank account to his personal bank account totaling $582,080, according
to the government. In addition, the government accused Sapera improperly
transferring $35,000 in corporate funds from the company's PayPal account into
his personal PayPal account.

Being aggressive can come back and "bite you in the butt"
As noted by the new Ivey Business Journal, you do not need a business degree to
see that the Target Canada rollout was royally botched. This was clear to all
concerned from the moment the company first opened its doors and Canadian
consumers were greeted with poor selection and higher-than-expected prices. As
Ivey Business School marketing professor Kersi Antia points out, "The plan to
open so many stores in such a short period resulted from an opportunistic
takeover of Zellers, which came back to bite them in the butt because it was too
aggressive. And instead of taking time to really understand our market, Target
acted like it wasn't even expanding across a border. The company entered Canada
as if it was the 51st state. These mistakes cost them dearly." huffingtonpost.ca

Cross-Border online shopping stunts Canadian e-Commerce - Total retail online =
4.8% vs. U.S.'s 12.7% Canadians who order products online and have
them sent to U.S. mailboxes are partly to blame for Canadian e-commerce sales
lagging other countries, according to a new study released March 12. Online
sales are expected to be 4.8% of all retail sales in Canada in 2015 well below
the U.S. 12.7%. "Although cross-border shopping may be detracting from online
sales growth as a percentage of total retail spending in Canada, retailers are
making improvements to the online shopping experience to capture the 50% of
Canadians now purchasing online," said Josh Harding, who is vice-president of
global operations at RetailMeNot, Inc. He expects the share of Canadian sales
done online to increase more than 13% $28.51 billion in 2015. Generally shipping
rates are higher in Canada. He added that Canadians have historically also had
less online selection than in other countries.
Husband assaults Canadian Tire LP Officer - not knowing his wife just stole from
the store Alan Boyd Pasap said he was sitting in his commonlaw wife's
vehicle outside the Canadian Tire in Regina when, upon turning to feed the
couple's baby, he spotted something that led him to take action. "I saw two
people struggling," he told the court during his aggravated assault trial on
Thursday. "Then I noticed it was (my spouse) Crystal (McKenzie) and she was
being assaulted." With surveillance video bearing witness, 37-year-old Pasap
said he backed up to the pair and got out, retrieving a baseball bat from the
trunk. He then approached the other two people and, lifting the bat, asked, "Is
it worth it?" Pasap said he brought the bat down when the man didn't release
McKenzie. The couple then returned to the car and drove off, leaving the man
with a badly broken arm. The problem was that the man was a loss prevention
officer (LPO) who told the court he'd just witnessed McKenzie stealing from the
Debate on Social Media over Security Guards at Prince Albert's Gateway Mall
A video posted on Facebook and YouTube that shows two security guards subduing a
woman at the Gateway Mall in Prince Albert has been generating a lot of
discussion on social media. In the video, the guards were seen pinning the woman
on the ground while making a call to the Prince Albert Police Service for an
officer to arrive. An angry crowd gathered around and began to heckle the guards
to stop hurting the woman and let her go. The guards eventually allowed the
woman to stand, and she broke free of their grasp. On Facebook and YouTube, some
people were showing support for the security guards, while others were
criticizing them for excessive use of force. The issue of racism was also
brought into the discussion. The general manager of the Gateway Mall, Sharon
Faul, has seen the negative comments towards her security guards. "Unfortunately
on social media, when you have something like this happen, there is no footage
of what is happening leading up to that point in time and there is no video
footage on social media regarding what happened following that time frame."

Durham Regional Police lay 58 charges against Scarborough couple in sweeping
Identity Fraud investigation An investigation by Durham police into
suspected identity theft has led to dozens of fraud charges against a
Scarborough couple. Project Gilmore was launched in January in response to scams
that began with suspects obtaining cellphones with stolen identities, Durham
police said. Members of Durham's major fraud unit determined the phones were
being shipped from Quebec to addresses in the GTA, including Pickering and
Mississauga. Suspects used fake ID to pick up the packages from Canada Post or
UPS, police said. As the investigation continued, police uncovered evidence of
more fraud, including money laundering, cheque fraud and possession of stolen
credit card data. On Wednesday, March 11, police stopped suspects as they
travelled in a vehicle on Warden Avenue in Toronto. Seized as proceeds of crime
were the vehicle and property including electronics, cellphones, high-end
designer clothing and purses found during a search of a Toronto home. That
search also revealed stolen identity documents, cash and stolen credit card
data, police said. Stephen Oruwari, 35, and 26-year-old Tsedey Whitfield, both
of Scarborough, face a total of 58 fraud-related charges.

The Latest POS Malware Discovery
Point-of-sale malware is the cause of most retailer data breaches, according to
the PCI Council, and it's getting ever sneakier to avoid detection as it steals
payment card numbers on the fly. Two new examples of their stealthy techniques
were unearthed by security researchers last week, according to SC Magazine.
Unlike most POS malware, both of the new families - dubbed LogPOS and PwnPOS -
use one component to find card data and another to send it to the cyberthieves.
LogPOS injects code into several processes, forcing them to search different
sections of the POS system's memory.
Meanwhile PwnPOS, which also has two separate components but uses a simpler
approach. The module that scrapes memory hunting for likely payment card numbers
is consistent in all members of the malware family. The card numbers are written
to a log file, and the memory scraper is capable of periodically uninstalling
itself as an active process, which makes it more difficult for antivirus tools
Online Fraud Projected to Rise In March, Following Mandarin Oriental Security
Breach Unlike other recent security breaches, such as that in 2014 at
White Lodging, and the possible 2015 breach still under investigation, the
stolen cards at Mandarin Oriental are likely to have very high or no credit
limits due to the hotel's wealthy clientele, making them extremely valuable on
the black market. E-commerce businesses are the most likely to be hit by these
contraband cards, due to the increased ease of use and anonymity provided by an
online environment. How can online businesses prepare? E-Commerce recommends 5
strategies to increase these companies' security during the next couple months.
While all of these steps should be common elements of an offensive
fraud-reduction plan, increased vigilance, more checks, and an insistence on
following each of these steps every time can transform an average level of
vigilance into an iron wall.
Male career criminal - suitcase stuffer busted hitting Macy's downtown Seattle,
Ballard Fred Meyer and Shoreline Sears Police say Andersson, 46,
stole $104 in fragrances from Macy's in October, and in December, took an empty
suitcase at a Fred Meyer store, filled it with jeans, and left the store with
the items worth about $835. Also in December, police say a loss prevention
officer at the Shoreline Sears saw Andersson select a rolling suitcase before
going to the shoe department, trying on a pair of $120 shoes, and them placing
them in the suitcase. Court documents say Andersson then went to the men's
department where he put a stack of 25 pairs of Levis jeans into the suitcase and
then left the building. He was then stopped by employees. While in the store's
loss prevention office, a store sales associate recognized Andersson as the same
man who committed a similar theft the day before involving a suitcase and jeans,
police said. The loss prevention manager reviewed the previous day's
surveillance video and found the theft. The merchandise fro both Sears thefts
totaled $3,600. He was charged with organized retail theft earlier this month.

she stole $2,700 worth of merchandise from the Belk's department store.

merchandise. Court records show police also charged Smith with felony identity

being involved in shoplifting ring that struck stores in Westland, Canton,
Garden City and Dearborn. Westland Police began investigating after five
suspects entered Kmart, 165 S. Wayne Road, on March 1 and were reported to have
stolen four televisions. After investigation, detectives were able to obtain

that location. Officers arrested four of five suspects, all of whom share a home
in Inkster, for retail fraud. Police report that further investigation led to
the recovery of two additional televisions from local pawn shops. According to

Depot employee in Austin, TX charged with stealing nearly $10K of merchandise
A woman working at a Home Depot store in Northwest Austin is charged with
stealing nearly $10,000 from the company. Police say 28-year-old Megan Phillips
collected the money between May and August of last year by performing fraudulent
return transactions, according to an arrest affidavit. The company's corporate
office alerted the store to the problem after they found Phillips hand-entered
several returns during a 30-day period, court documents show. Surveillance video
showed Phillips stored several UPC codes on her cellphone, the affidavit said,
then transcribed those numbers onto a piece of paper. The store says she then
entered the UPC numbers into her register and issued fraudulent returns.
Rite Aid and Bellingham, WA Police working together to stop refund fraud
Some criminals are willing to go through any means to an end, even digging
through trash. Bellingham police discovered a new crime involving receipts
stolen from trash cans. Bellingham Police Lt. Bob Vander Yacht said thieves go
through trash outside of local stores, grab receipts, and make note of the items
listed and their codes. They then enter the stores, find matching items, and use
the receipts to "return" them at the customer service desk. The first case was
discovered after a shoplifting event at a Rite Aid on Telegraph Road. One
suspect was apprehended, but later, a Rite Aid employee called the police to
report they'd discovered a backpack believed belonged to a woman who had been
with the suspect. "[In the backpack was] some paraphernalia related to narcotics
and also this large collection of receipts from multiple businesses and a series
of handwritten notes related to the receipts," Vander Yacht said. Receipts in
the backpack found in Rite Aid were from Rite Aid, Lowe's, Home Depot, Fred
Meyer and other stores nearby.

arrested in 'sophisticated' counterfeit money scheme in Slidell, LA
Five people in Slidell were arrested in a "complex" counterfeit scheme that
preyed on several businesses in the New Orleans area. According to a news
release from the Slidell Police Department, the investigation began in October
and spanned several months. Businesses reported receiving counterfeit $50 and
$100 bills. A detective, who is also part of the U.S. Secret Service Task Force,
partnered with the federal agency and discovered that the same counterfeit
bills, which were identified by the serial number, were being passed at more
than two dozen businesses across the New Orleans area. Arrested were 22-year-old
Destinee Warren, 26-year-old Diondre Jones, 28-year-old Anthony Chaney,
19-year-old Tajhan Armour and 19-year-old Jamineca Williams. According to
police, Warren was the alleged ring leader of the group and would get the
counterfeit money and distribute it to the other four accused in the scheme.
"The group would go to businesses throughout the area, make a small purchase
using the counterfeit money and would then obtain real money as change," police
said in a news release.
$30,000 of stolen Wild Turkey bourbon found in a Frankfort, Kentucky backyard
Another iconic bourbon brand in Kentucky has been targeted in a heist, but this
time authorities say they have arrested a suspect caught with the stash of
pricey whiskey in his backyard. Franklin County sheriff's deputies responding to
a tip recovered five barrels - each filled with bourbon - that were taken from
the Wild Turkey Distillery at nearby Lawrenceburg, Sheriff Pat Melton said
Thursday. One arrest has been made so far as authorities continue to look into
the pilfering of the popular whiskey that was still aging, the sheriff said.
"This investigation is going in several different directions," Melton said in an
interview. "We're following up on our leads as we speak." Each barrel is
believed to carry a value of $3,700 to $6,000, but Wild Turkey officials took
samples to determine the exact worth, the sheriff said. Labeling on each barrel
had been spray-painted over, he said.

2 Express Outlet store employees in Gonzales, LA arrested for stealing $1,700 in
merchandise Two Express Outlet store employees have been charged with
felony theft after they allegedly stole clothes from their employer over a span
of five months, according to the Gonzales Police Department. Sandrika Mitchell,
25, was booked on felony theft and Jaleesa Green, 27, was booked on misdemeanor
theft of goods. The Loss Prevention Manager told police he had been
investigating multiple employees of possible theft. Police say when Mitchell
returned to The Express Outlet, officers saw her walking into the store with a
