News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
 
African American Dillard's customer wins $600,000 for racial profiling - bad stop law-suit at Perimeter Mall, Atlanta, Ga.  Damien Solomon, 36, sued the department store after being falsely accused of shoplifting a pair of Levi’s jeans, and subsequently arrested in the case, according to court documents. Solomon told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he’s still trying to clear his name from the criminal charges. He said he pursued the lawsuit because companies like Dillard’s shouldn’t be able to bully people. Solomon, who is black, said when he left Dillard’s his hands were empty, and video surveillance makes it clear that he did not take anything. "I didn’t have a bag, I didn’t have a coat and I didn’t have on a sweatshirt or anything,” he said. “I couldn’t have hidden anything. So why’d they pick me? Why did they do this to me?” Solomon’s lawyer, James Hugh Potts II, said the store fabricated a story and kept spinning the same lie for five years. The verdict included $250,000 in general damages and $350,000 in punitive damages. (Source vahi.patch.com)

Why So Many Retail Stores Get Hacked for Credit Card Data
Is there something wrong with PCI’s standards? Retailers and banks were on the hook for more than $11 billion in global card fraud in 2012, a 15 percent increase from the previous year. Almost half of all card fraud occurs in the U.S., though the country accounts for just a quarter of global card spending. That’s partly because of light enforcement of PCI rules and a lack of accountability for assessors, most of whom are drawn from a pool of hundreds of approved consulting firms, says Avivah Litan, a cybersecurity analyst with Gartner (IT). “They have no responsibility,” she says, drawing a comparison to credit-rating agencies in the runup to the 2008 financial meltdown. While intensive audits cost tens of thousands of dollars and run for months (Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder says the company’s annual reviews take nine months), some assessors charge a couple hundred dollars for simpler audits they finish in an afternoon. Auditors can get certified over a weekend through courses that end in an open-book test. Small retailers assess themselves. People should not think an audit is some kind of insurance policy. “It requires exertion of effort every day of the year.” She says companies deemed PCI-compliant before a major breach have later been found to be out of compliance at the time of the attack. Bob Russo, general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council, says, “We do not hear about all of the attacks that are prevented by the security implemented through adoption of PCI standards.” The U.S. has lagged other countries in adopting stronger security measures, such as authentication chips in cards, point-of-sale data encryption, and secondary ID numbers that substitute for card numbers online. The current PCI standard gives every party in the payment system a credible way to redirect blame for a breach, says Jeremiah Grossman, founder of online security company WhiteHat Security. “Basically you have the council blaming the victim, the victim blaming the standard, and the cardholder caught in the middle,” he says. “Nothing will change, because the incentives in the system are broken.” (Source businessweek.com)

Retailers likely to opt for credit cards without expirations on private label cards to save money  As the U.S. card industry transitions from magnetic stripe technology to smart cards with embedded microchips, consumers likely will see expiration dates extended to four or five years for the network-branded cards.

Mobile POS Set to Grow 95% Worldwide in 2014 & Number of Devices Used in U.S. Will Triple This Year  The adoption of Mobile devices for POS transactions is exploding worldwide, as retailers and consumers alike get more accustomed to retailers asking for payment on mobile devices. According to IHL Group, shipments of new mobile POS device shipments are expected to grow more than 95% worldwide and will surpass 108% growth in North America in 2014. “The move to Mobile POS in certain segments is radically changing the face of retail and hospitality, particularly mall-based retailers,” said Greg Buzek, President of IHL Group, a Franklin, Tennessee-based retail market research firm. “The number of devices used by Department Stores, Apparel and Shoe stores in particular will nearly triple this year.” (Source businesswire.com)

Could Our Food Supply Be A Target For Terrorists? FDA Proposes new rules
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is proposing to require domestic and foreign food facilities that are required to register under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) to address hazards that may be intentionally introduced by acts of terrorism. These food facilities would be required to identify and implement focused mitigation strategies to significantly minimize or prevent significant vulnerabilities identified at actionable process steps in a food operation.

Walgreens Pharmacies Compromising Security Of Patient Information?  Walgreens is under attack and facing accusations from a labor-backed consumer group that it could be exposing customers’ private medical information with its new pharmacy consulting desks.

Thursday afternoon, the pharmacist at the Walgreens in Oak Park staffs the new consultation desk at the drug store. But Change to Win is releasing video alleging that sometimes the desk is empty. It claims photos show information about customers’ prescriptions and medicine is left unattended. (Source cbslocal.com)

N.Y. to License and Regulate Bitcoin Exchanges
The Bitcoin fervor, created by the spectacular failure of Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox, has abated but New York stepped up to remind the Bitcoin community of the uphill battle it faces in terms of increased government scrutiny. The state’s Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) said last week it will license virtual currency exchanges based in New York. To obtain a license to operate a Bitcoin exchange, companies will have to submit formal applications and proposals to NYDFS and abide by regulations the agency said will be proposed publicly before July 1, 2014.

Digital bill folders help restaurants boost security, convenience
Dickie Brennan & Co. has begun using a new payment solution aimed at both helping its restaurants improve the customer experience and comply with upcoming changes in credit card technology. In September the company introduced digital bill folders, or check presenters, at its new 200-seat Tableau restaurant and debuted them at its 200-seat Palace Café in late February. One plus is that they allow guests to swipe their own payment cards. Another security advantage is that the card readers are readily adaptable to a new, more secure, payment standard.

Biometrics: Mobile payments' new challenger
Security is a major concern in mobile payments, and passwords seem insufficient to many consumers. Now that the latest versions of Apple's iPhone 5S and Samsung's Galaxy S5 have fingerprint scanners, it looks like biometrics could be a contender in the mobile payments game, says an article from Vice Magazine's Motherboard blog. Despite its merits in terms of security, biometric matching is nothing more than a high-tech replacement for the PIN, Steve Wilson, an analyst with Constellation Research, writes in a blog post. NFC is much more important for identity, he adds. (Source fiercemobileit.com)

$3.4M security upgrade coming to Yorkdale mall in Toronto  New surveillance cameras with the ability to capture license plates on vehicles in the parking lot are part of a $3.4 million security upgrade at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Last year, one man was fatally shot and another was wounded in what police said was an “ambush” at the mall. Michael Nguyen, 23, was killed on March 30, 2013. Nearly two months later, a man was shot while he ate at the Joey’s restaurant the mall. Shopper safety is our number one priority and this security installation will make Yorkdale a very undesirable place for criminal activity,” Anthony Casalanguida, Oxford Properties’ Director of Retail, said in a statement Monday. “We now have one of the most technologically advanced surveillance coverage systems available to help deter crime, assist police investigations, and help people feel safe. There are three components of Yorkdale’s security upgrade:
• Complete 360-degree coverage delivering almost 100 per cent surveillance coverage of public spaces
• Exceptionally high resolution image capture that allows magnification in remarkable detail; up until now, surveillance images didn’t always provide sufficient detail to assist police investigations
• A surveillance room staffed by trained security officers monitoring live feeds 24/7 from all surveillance cameras (Source citynews.ca)

Major Companies Not Making Full Use of Big Data to Spot Fraud

Plot to shoot up Walmart store brings 15-year prison sentence in Bolivar, Mo.
A 21-year-old man from Bolivar received two concurrent 15-year prison sentences on Thursday for thinking about shooting up the Walmart store here in late 2012 after he told police he first thought about a mass shooting at a movie theater here. Senior Judge William Roberts convicted Blaec Lammers in January of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Polk County Prosecuting Attorney Ken Ashlock argued this wasn't Lammers' first criminal act and that a longer sentence is appropriate. He asked for the maximum 15-year sentence for first-degree assault. He had threatened an employee at Walmart in the past, about three years prior to this incident happening, and he also assaulted a co-employee where he worked, Trent Slagle, with a weapon of sort, a rope with an item tied to a piece of metal,” said Ashlock. Ashlock said the act of buying the gun and purchasing a ticket to a movie theater a month ahead of time showed the elements of a plot to harm someone. Police said Lammers told them that he first planned to shoot up the theater and then changed his mind and decided to do the shooting at the store because he could get more ammunition there.

Another told dispatchers this: "My husband and I were in line checking out and he came up behind us and started shooting this lady, and he shot 5 times maybe, I don't know, and we all hid, but the man out here is saying the lady needs help she's been shot." The calls were made to the Conway Police Department and the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office.

Solvay pair’s retail scheme a growing trend nationally and locally in Syracuse, N.Y. Stealing - Refunding for gift cards - Selling to pawn shops  Police say a pair of women from Solvay were caught in a large scale larceny scheme and are calling their arrests a small victory in the ongoing battle against organized retail theft. 29-year-old Jessica Brettschneider and 29-year-old Sara Michlovitch teamed up to rip off several dozen chain stores throughout Onondaga County, according to police. Investigators say the women would steal merchandise from one store, such as Target, and return the items to another Target store in exchange for gift cards. They would then sell the gift cards to pawn shops to get half their face value in cash, police said. “Several (gift cards) per day, the investigation is still ongoing, but several per day for several months, right now we are in excess of $5,000,” said Manlius Police Investigator James Gallup. The scheme is not uncommon, according to DeWitt Police Sgt. Scott Kapral, who pushed for the formation of the Greater DeWitt Retail Theft Coalition. (Source localsyr.com)

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.
