Shrink Concerns Holding Back Self-Checkout?
Everybody hates waiting in the checkout line. Getting rid of it is going to take awhile.

It's one part of shopping that both retailers and their customers loathe: the checkout line. Even customers who like to shop just want to get out the door. And it's not lost on retailers that a good portion of their labor costs go to workers who perform mind-numbing, robotic tasks.

In response, a growing number of stores are trying to speed the checkout line along, or do away with it altogether. In the most extreme form, Amazon is rolling out a fleet of cashierless convenience stores across the country. No cash, no plastic credit card required. Just an app and an account.

And last week, Meijer joined chains like Sam's Club and Macy's that let shoppers ring up purchases on their smartphones.

To retailers, the cashierless future is not such a leap. No one thinks twice about using ATMs or pumping their own gas. Eventually, retail experts say, streamlined serve-yourself shopping could feel just as natural. But "it's going to be a bumpy road," said Robert Moraca, vice president for loss prevention at the National Retail Federation.

Still, he added, "that's where we're headed."

By now, self-checkout kiosks are a staple in grocery and drugstores. But it's become a bigger focus for a wider range of retailers in the past couple years, said Read Hayes, director of the Loss Prevention Research Council at the University of Florida.

Stores with self-checkout tend to see higher losses than those that send all shoppers to cashiers, and letting customers use their own devices is generally seen as riskier than requiring they ring up their times at a kiosk because it's harder to monitor, Hayes said. chicagotribune.com

Why Cashless Stores Aren't Always Good News
On March 7 Philadelphia became the first major U.S. city to ban cashless stores. In our increasingly digital world, where nearly all businesses accept electronic forms of payment, it seems only logical to transition to a completely cashless system. So why did lawmakers ban businesses from refusing to accept cash?

In 2017, nearly 6 percent of the population of Philadelphia was "unbanked," which are people who do not have a checking or savings account and only use cash. About 22 percent of the population was "underbanked," which are those who have bank accounts but still use alternative financial services, such as check cashers.

According to Philly.com, supporters of this legislation, which goes into effect on July 1, argued that cashless stores effectively discriminated against poor consumers. A report from the Federal Reserve found that the unbanked and the underbanked are more likely to have low income, less education or be in a racial or ethnic minority group.

Businesses, such as Sweetgreen, have gone cashless in recent years in order to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of robbery. The National Retail Federation opposes the ban on cashless stores, saying that merchants should decide which payments to accept (or deny).

The conversion to a completely cashless system would also have a significant impact on cash-in-transit companies, who would lose a large customer base that no longer needs armored couriers to securely transport their cash. This could also affect banks who depend on their commercial customers for business. controltekusa.com

Technology Disruption & the Transformation of the Global Top 250 Retailers

By Tony D'Onofrio, Global Retail Influencer

Annually I look forward to the Deloitte Global Powers of Retailing industry research which provides a detailed growth trajectory review of the global top 250 retailers. This year, in addition to summarizing my favorite insights from the 2019 edition, we will look back to the 2014 report to compare and contrast the changes in the retail industry over the last five years.

All the metrics presented in this article are from these two Deloitte industry leading reports. A thought-provoking technology disruption chart from the 2014 report is also included in this post for all of us to assess the retail industry's innovation progress.

The Global Powers of Retailing
The data in the last report indicates that the global top 250 retailers grew roughly six percent and represented $4.53 trillion in retail revenue. Note the slight decline in minimal revenue to be included as a top 250 retailer. The industry overall had stronger revenue growth in 2019 versus 2014, but sacrificed margin in the process. Contrary to recent popular presumptions, the percentage of retailers with global operations increased in the latest report.

The Rise of Amazon in the Global Top 10
Interesting changes in the top 10 from 2014 to 2019. Walmart remained Number 1. CVS and Amazon arrived into the top 10 from Number 12 and Number 16 respectively. Target and Metro disappeared from the Top 10. Tesco had a substantial drop in the rankings. Most amazing is the rise of Amazon, up twelve notches from 2014 to 2019.

Seven out of the top 10 retailers in the latest report are from USA, two are from Germany, and one is from the UK. This is a change from 2014 when five out of the top 10 were from USA, one from France, three from Germany, and one from UK. As the note indicates, Carrefour was not included in the 2019 Global Powers of Retailing analysis. tonydonofrio.com

What the CFOs Are Reading:
Numbers Don't Lie, Until They Do

Only 38% of Financial Executives Trust Accuracy of Financial Data Being Reported

A good number of controllers, financial analysts, accountants, and auditors don't completely trust the accuracy of their company's financial data.

For many years, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has required the CFO of a public company to certify the accuracy of the organization's financial statement, providing confidence to investors in the report's quality. This much-valued guarantee of corporate responsibility testifies to the robustness of the company's internal control structure and systems.

However, recent research by BlackLine revealed a surprising lack of confidence within finance departments in the numbers being reported.

According to a survey we commissioned of more than 1,100 C-level executives and finance professionals, 71% of C-level executives completely trust the accuracy of their financial data. However, only 38% of finance professionals - the people preparing the statements and reports - share that opinion.

The findings are evidence of a disconnect about the accuracy of the data. That's dangerous at a time when many companies are transforming around data to make more informed business decisions. If the numbers are inaccurate to begin with, those decisions will suffer.

Most pointed to human error as the primary cause, given that some data is manually input. Others cited the vast increase in the volume of data flooding the business from a wide array of sources.

Additional factors included the competency and training of people inputting data, over-reliance on spreadsheets, outdated processes, and few automated checks and controls across the enterprise.

The financial figures drive many operating decisions, fueling budgets as well as growth and cost initiatives.
Obviously, inaccurate numbers may affect the expected outcomes of these plans.

Our research confirms this risk, with seven in ten respondents (69%) stating that they or their CEOs have made a significant business decision based on incorrect or outdated financial data. Many respondents said the problem is often hidden: over a quarter (26%) cited concerns over errors they knew existed but could not confirm due to lack of visibility into the data.

Hidden financial data inaccuracies, according to respondents, also have the potential to increase debt levels and bring significant SEC fines (and possible criminal charges).

Nearly seven in ten respondents (69%) stated that a company they have worked for had to restate its earnings due to unidentified data inaccuracies. Meanwhile, only 17% said they trusted the CFO and finance team to identify all errors prior to issuing the financial statementcfo.com

Cost of telecommunications fraud estimated at $32.8 billion a year
The Cyber-Telecom Crime Report 2019, jointly published by Europol and Trend Micro, highlights that telecom fraud is becoming a low-risk alternative to traditional financial crime. The reduced cost and increased availability of hacking equipment means this type of fraud is on the rise. The cost of telecommunications fraud is estimated to be 29 billion euros (US $32.8 billion) a year.

At its heart, this fraud is the abuse of telecommunications products (mainly telephones and mobile phones) or services with the intention of illegally acquiring money from a communication service provider or its customers. The main goal of criminals is to gain access to customers' or carriers' accounts, where debt can be incurred in the criminal's favour.

Cooperation and information-sharing between law enforcement and the private sector has become essential
in the fight against these types of crime. helpnetsecurity.com

Myrtle Beach, SC: JC Penney added to Myrtle Beach Mall shooting death lawsuit
The family of Frances Mae Davis filed a lawsuit against the mall and the security guard service in 2016 after the 78-year-old woman was found shot to death in her car in the mall parking lot on Jan. 8 of that year.

JCPenney was added to the complaint on Jan. 15, 2019, with the plaintiff, Davis' estate, saying JCPenney failed to provide adequate security. The retailer responded by denying they should be held responsible for her death because they're not responsible for the mall parking lot outside of their store.

"Pursuant to the Lease, the Mall parking areas are not part of the premises demised to JCPenney, but instead are defined as "Common Facilities." wpde.com

Amazon Air pilots speak out over safety concerns
Pilots flying for Amazon Air publicized concerns about air safety just weeks before a fatal crash, reports Business Insider. The U.S.-based pilots, who work for third-party units of Air Transport Services Group and Atlas Air Worldwide, described problems with inexperienced pilots taking to the skies, a lack of training, and low morale and pay. The Amazon Air pilots have been fighting for better pay and standards for nearly five years. Analysts say the safety issues could threaten Amazon's rapidly expanding air cargo operations. linkedin.com

Ex-Amazon worker claims he was fired over union activity
Rashad Long, a former worker at an Amazon.com warehouse on Staten Island, claims that he was fired because he advocated for safer working conditions and unionization at the site. The Retail, Warehouse and Department Store Union has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board over Mr. Long's dismissal. Amazon claims he was fired due to violations of safety regulations. retailwire.com

IoT for Retail Loss Prevention: Boon or Bane?
IoT-enabled services are being adopted to provide user-friendly and aesthetic ways to address retail loss prevention. However, certain post-deployment observations have revealed some issues with IoT, relating to customer experience and the technology's ineffectiveness in addressing the real reasons for which it was originally deployed.

Wired retractable physical tethers have been deployed in retail as an anti-theft measure for many years now. Still, organized retail crime and inventory shrinkage costs the retail industry $30B and $45B respectively every year.
Robberies and burglaries are up 8.6 percent since 2016, according to D&D Daily reporting.

Physical retractable tethers, though cheap, have many disadvantages. First, they cause an unpleasant experience to shoppers exploring the product-a constant pull towards the base, inability to see the product in 360 degrees, anchored to the table where it's placed and so on. Second, they haven't done anything to prevent theft, which is their primary intent in the first place.

Electronic secure perimeters (i.e. geo-fencing) using the Internet of Things (IoT) has found many uses, including loss prevention for r
etail. Companies like InVue have developed sophisticated IoT solutions that protect assets wirelessly. These IoT systems operate by triggering a software-programmable alarm when the high-value physical asset exits a pre-defined secure zone. Sounds cool, doesn't it? There are caveats, though.

The majority of shoppers in any retail store fall under the honest and good-intent category. They're genuinely trying out the product and, on many occasions, they accidentally exit the geo-fence, causing public embarrassment-a severe dent on the overall customer experience. Another interesting fact is that the security personnel inside a retail store don't physically tackle the culprits even when the alarm rings.

To address these concerns, some retailers like Verizon have adopted a
combination of physical and electronic tethering. The wires are long and non-retractable (though not aesthetically pleasing) and have a slot to conveniently house the asset (pictured to the right). The base and the asset have tags with the conspicuous labels "alarm" to make the shopper cautious. The electronic (invisible) tether acts as a supplement.

Another way to address these issues is to develop
cloud-based systems. At the outset, shoppers can be notified (on the asset itself) not to carry the asset too far away from the base. A pleasant chirp can be sent as a warning before the actual alarm rings. IoT location services can be built to track the asset in real-time, which can then be viewed by security personnel and police officers on their personal handheld devices to nab the thieves. iotforall.com

As AI Spreads, Tech Needs 'Chief Bias Officers'
While many companies continue to debate how to shape their executive teams in response to increasing digitization, and whether they need to create a Chief Data Protection Officer position, some may need to consider creating a "Chief Bias Officer" position, according to an editorial published by Forbes.

In a first-of-its-kind study conducted with artificial intelligence algorithms, the Royal Historical Society recently revealed what it called "massive gender bias" across the U.K. workforce. The AI-powered system scanned the entire U.K. Internet, examining the current breakdown of existing positions for men and women. Assessing 108 different economic sectors, the study found that in 87 percent of these fields there was a bias toward men, meaning that men accounted for a disproportionate share of senior leadership positions.

The pioneering study underscores AI's potential to help illuminate our world, after all, one of the powerful capabilities of AI is to analyze vast amounts of data and find patterns we cannot. But while AI can help uncover biases and inequities it can actually make them worse as well.

How can organizations be confident that the data on which they and their AI systems rely on are truly adequate and not reinforcing discriminatory patterns. biometricupdate.com

Average DDoS attack sizes decrease 85% due to FBI's shutdown
of DDoS-for-hire websites

FBI's shutdown of the 15 largest distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) for hire vendors (booters) reduced the overall number of attacks worldwide by nearly 11 percent compared to the same period last year.

Along with the fewer total attacks, the average size decreased by 85 percent as did the maximum attack size by 24 percent, indicating the FBI crackdown was effective in reducing the global impact of DDoS attacks.

However, booter websites are poised to make a comeback despite the crackdown due to
growing botnets and incessant demand for DDoS-for-hire services, according to the Nexusguard Q4 2018 Threat Report. helpnetsecurity.com

Magecart Nightmare Besets E-Commerce Websites
Script-based payment card malware continues its successful run, impacting a range of e-commerce sites, researchers at two security firms warn.

RiskIQ and Group-IB have described a series of attacks whose victims include shoe manufacturer Fila, two bedding-related sites - Mypillow.com and Amerisleep.com - and others.

Countering card-sniffing malware has proved to be tricky, as the sign of an infection may be just a single line of code. Nor have large enterprises been immune: Big players such as British Airways, Ticketmaster and Newegg have all been struck over the past year (see Magecart Cybercrime Groups Harvest Payment Card Data).

Many of these attacks have been well-documented by RiskIQ, which broadly refers to the use of these tactics as Magecart, although emphasizes that many cybercriminal groups appear to be involved.

The latest attacks documented by the company show that Magecart-style gangs are continuing to experiment with new attack techniques, potentially making it harder for companies to detect when they've been compromised. bankinfosecurity.com

Amazon Blocks Product Promotions That Lose Money
In an effort to boost its bottom line, Amazon will no longer allow products that don't turn a profit to advertise on its site.

CNBC reported that Amazon has recently been telling more vendors, as well as brand owners who sell their products wholesale, that if the eCommerce giant can't sell their items at a profit, the merchants can no longer pay to promote them.

"Amazon is trying to be much more profitable than they were in the past," said Joe Hansen, CEO of Buy Box Experts. "But this policy shows there's bias in Amazon's ad service, even though it says it's an open advertising platform."

An Amazon spokesperson defended the move, saying it has been a common practice for retailers for decades.

"Like all retailers, Amazon decides which products to market and promote in our stores based on a variety of factors, such as relevancy, availability, profitability and other factors," the spokesperson said.

Amazon employees refer to these products as "CRaP," which stands for "Can't Realize a Profit." These items are usually sold for less than $25, but could be as high as $2,000 if large and expensive to store and ship, explained Hansen.

The move to get unprofitable products off the site is yet another issue vendors have with Amazon, who has been accused of using its eCommerce market power to change its policies suddenly. pymnts.com

Update: Lower Bucks County, PA: Pawn Shop Owner, Employee Plead Guilty
In $700,000 Organized Retail Theft Ring

The owner of two pawn shops and one of his employees pleaded guilty Wednesday for their role in a scheme that authorities said used "professional retail thieves." Michael Stein, 36, of Middletown, pleaded guilty to corrupt organizations and receiving stolen property. Stein owned Levittown Quick Cash Trading Post in Bristol Township and Morrisville Loan and Pawn in Falls Township. Store employee Brian Jancia, 29, pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property. The two men were arrested last winter along with 30 others, the majority drug users who were stealing items that would later be resold through the pawn shops.

A multi-year-long investigation of Levittown-area retail thefts folded into the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office's Operation Booster Club. Authorities said the crooks generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue through the purchase and resale of merchandise stolen from chain stores between January 2014 and October 2017. The total stolen items purchased for resale numbered around 5,000 and was valued at $700,000. Authorities said the pawn shop workers purchased stolen goods from the thieves - known as "boosters" - and would pay them about 30 percent to 40 percent of the stolen item's retail value. The pawn shop owner and employees would then take the stolen goods to a warehouse before selling them on eBay and other online shopping venues.

"These defendants ran a scheme to profit off of those struggling with substance use disorder and take advantage of the opioid crisis ravaging Pennsylvania," Attorney General Josh Shapiro said this week in a statement. "The companies they targeted faces significant financial loss, which was passed on to consumers in our Commonwealth. My Office is holding the accountable for the despicable enterprise they operated in Bucks County." Stein will be sentenced at a later date. He has entered into a cooperation plea agreement with prosecutors. levittownnow.com

Fresno, CA: Another Fresno Ulta Beauty store robbed at lightning speed
The search is on for a suspected beauty bandit with expensive taste who's wanted in a number of robberies at Ulta stores. The latest heist happened at the retailer's Northwest Fresno location at Herndon and Highway 99. Investigators identified the beauty store suspect as 29-year-old Shante Lewis. She was arrested on Sunday hours after thousands of dollars in high-priced fragrances were taken from the Ulta in the El Paseo Shopping Center.

Surveillance video shows the suspect shoveling fragrance bottles into a large tote bag. Within seconds, suddenly she makes a dash for the door. "Later on that day, the same thing happened and because we had worked with the people in Ulta at our town- we communicated that up and down the state and Modesto Police said we'll take her into custody," said Capt. Burke Farrah of the Fresno Police Department.
She bailed out - just as Fresno Police Officers got a warrant for her arrest. So she is wanted once again. Officers don't know if Shante Lewis was involved in that burglary- but they have tied her to at least 4 others. abc30.com

Inez, KY: G.L.O.V.E sends electrical charge to subdue suspect
Since January, the department has been operating with just the sheriff, one paid deputy and a few volunteer deputies. The new tool is the G.L.O.V.E. It is literally a glove, but one that can send an electrical charge to subdue suspects. "It's a burning sensation all up into your arm lasting probably a couple seconds," said Martin County Constable Brad Preece on what the G.L.O.V.E. felt like. Kentucky-based Compliant Technologies is donating four pairs of gloves to the sheriff's department. Other area law enforcement also took part in training. "The only thing that is transmitting from the glove to the body is a very rapid pulse rate of a voltage that is no more than 380 volts but usually operates at 330 volts," said Jeff Niklaus, founder of Compliant Technologies. Niklaus said the electricity does not travel throughout the body, making the glove a safer electrical weapon when trying to get a suspect to comply with commands. wvah.com

How Eastern European gangs fly into UK on 'fraud holidays' to steal thousands of bank details from cash machines before going home 'millionaires'
