Man Who Exposed Target Security Breach Is Focus of Sony Movie Deal
Sony has picked up the rights to the New York Times article "Reporting From the Web’s Underbelly," which focused on cyber security blogger Brian Krebs. Krebs, with his site, was the first person to expose the credit card breach at Target that shook the retail world in December. Richard Wenk, the screenwriter who wrote Sony's high-testing big-screen version of The Equalizer, is on board to write what is being envisioned as a cyber-thriller inspired by the article and set in the high-stakes international criminal world of cyber-crime.

It's not 'if' we are going to be breached, but 'when' we are going to be breached  Businesses are threat from a number of sources - from criminal gangs, to hacktivist and insider threats, as evidenced recently by the theft of payroll data for thousands of employees at Morrisons in the UK last week. "We saw with the Target breach it was the human factor that slipped there, so we have to be able to bring in more automation." Big data analytics tools will be crucial to enterprise security as criminals deploy faster and more sophisticated methods to steal valuable data. However, the adoption of big data analytics within businesses for security - and the maturity of offerings from vendors - remains at an early stage. (Source

California DMV has suffered a breach of their online payments system
According to banks in California and elsewhere that received alerts this week about compromised cards that all had been previously used online at the California DMV. The alert, sent privately by MasterCard to financial institutions this week, did not name the breached entity but said the organization in question experienced a “card-not-present” breach — industry speak for transactions conducted online. The alert further stated that the date range of the potentially compromised transactions extended from Aug. 2, 2013 to Jan. 31, 2014, and that the data stolen included the card number, expiration date, and three-digit security code printed on the back of cards. Update, 6:44 p.m. ET: The CA DMV just issued the following statement, which placed blame for the incident on the organization’s external card processing firm: "The Department of Motor Vehicles has been alerted by law enforcement authorities to a potential security issue within its credit card processing services.” The CA DMV did not say who their card processor is, but this document from the California Department of General Services seems to suggest that the processor is Elavon, a company based in Atlanta, Ga.

The era of the Great Retail Demassification
The great Internet disruptor enters. And its full blown effect was like pouring gasoline onto an already-out-of-control fire. Try to compute how many square feet of retail space some five billion e-commerce retail sites have added to the congestion. Then add to this the unprecedented Great (no recovery) Recession, and we are now on the edge of witnessing a massive elimination, downsizing, or repurposing of brick-and-mortar stores, and the malls and shopping centers that house them. Finally, finally, and finally, maybe this industry will get rid of a lot of excess and bring some sane equilibrium back to supply and demand. (Source

Quarterly Same Store Sales Results

Hastings Entertainment Q4 up 1.2% with down 3.7%

Last week's most popular news article --

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

Cybercriminals increase pressure on omnichannel retail chains, a Wal-Mart exec says  The retailer that wants to be all things to all shoppers is trying hard not to extend the welcome mat to cybercrimals, Fred Helm, director of global e-commerce investigations for Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said this week. Retail chains like Wal-Mart that operate both physical and online stores have “created a perfect fraud culture” by letting shoppers return merchandise to any bricks-and-mortar store, often without a receipt, Helm said during a presentation at the Merchant Risk Council’s 2014 E-Commerce Payments and Risk Conference. At the same time, he added, criminals are increasing their use of counterfeit payment cards to purchase gift cards in stores as well as online, then using them to fund other transactions. “We’re in an unbelievably risky time,” Helm said. To mitigate the losses, Helm directs a team of five data analysts and three investigators who watch for unusual activity and cooperate with law enforcement officials to identify and catch thieves. Dealing with cybercriminals is getting more challenging as criminals assemble “botnets”—large numbers of computers they control via inserting malicious software. They use those computers to automatically place fraudulent online orders much faster than in the recent past, Helm said. But though Helm’s team will work with law enforcement to help track and apprehend criminals, he said his team is focusing more on analyzing the data in fraudulent transactions rather than on locking up the bad guys. “We want good analytics to make data decisions” and help Wal-Mart’s risk manager set the most effective rules for accepting and rejecting transactions online and in stores, he said.

Bitcoin software gets security fixes, new features
The software driving Bitcoin's network was upgraded Wednesday, with security fixes addressing a problem that defunct bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox blamed for losing nearly half a billion dollars worth of bitcoins. The open-source software, known as Bitcoin-QT, has also been rebranded as "Bitcoin Core" to highlight that it runs the core infrastructure of the virtual currency's transaction and verification network. The latest version of bitcoin's software, 0.9.0, contains more than a half dozen fixes for transaction malleability, according to the release notes for the software. Bitcoin Core also contains a new feature for payment requests. Previously, merchants couldn't attach a note describing an invoice, and people also could not supply a refund address to a merchant. Now, the latest version automatically supplies a refund address (Source

Mobile 2 Go: How Convenience Stores Can Drive Mobile Payment
Consumers who reported not having made a mobile payment said they had security and privacy concerns or believed there were more convenient payment methods. They would, however, reconsider, if enticed. The study found that merchants should motivate consumers through value-added tools to encourage adoption, as well as attract more valuable customers. The same study also found that 60% of consumers who already make mobile payments said they would probably do so more often if they received instant coupons. Going further, some 36% said they would hand over personal information in exchange for such rewards and 46% of users indicated they would increase payments, if offered short-term, location-based coupons.

Giving Safety a Brand Identity
A product's brand labels it and gives it an identity and characteristics. When consumers think of a product or see its name or logo, the branding creates the image and impression. More and more, forward-thinking organizations are branding their safety initiatives. The process of branding your safety efforts or programs within the overall safety strategy can produce some desirable and profitable results. Safety branding can be used to improve safety performance, enrich the safety culture, boost employee engagement or simply make participation in safety activities more rewarding and satisfying. If you want to see whether or not branding safety could help your organization, think about these questions! (Source

NRF Opposes Plan to Disclose Workplace Safety Data
NRF told the Occupational Safety and Health Administration this week that a proposal to make workplace safety records public could harm companies’ reputations if incidents are taken out of context. “NRF is concerned that the proposed regulation will require disclosure of what OSHA has already correctly concluded is confidential and privileged commercial information,” NRF said. “Publication ... will trigger numerous negative consequences.” NRF said many workplace incidents are “well outside” a company’s control, and that OSHA has never before attempted to “blame” employers for accidents. Under the proposal, however, the public would “make an assessment of the workplaces which pose the greatest risk or danger without any context for the injuries that are publicized. Undoubtedly, employers will be held responsible or blamed for these incidents.” (Source



Man sentenced 27 yrs. for attack on loss prevention officer at midtown Sacramento Safeway  A man convicted in the stabbing of a loss prevention officer at a midtown Sacramento Safeway store has been sentenced to 27 years in state prison. On Oct. 15, 2013, Moralez entered the Safeway at 1814 19th St., selected food items and left the store without paying for the merchandise, according to a District Attorney’s Office news release. Two loss prevention officers followed Moralez out of the store and attempted to detain him for shoplifting. Moralez pulled out a knife and sliced one officer’s forearm. The officer suffered a 5-inch slash to his forearm, and damage to tendons and muscle, requiring surgery. Moralez has a criminal history dating back nearly 30 years, according to the DA’s office. His prior felony convictions include robbery, grand theft, multiple charges of buying or receiving stolen property, vehicle theft and drug possession. (Source

ORC female thief of designer purses in five cities busted in Rochester, N.Y.  The Rochester woman charged in a Milford designer purse theft and under investigation for several others in Oakland County has been identified as a suspect in a Washtenaw County case dating back almost two years. Laura Anne Pochmara, 37, who is charged with receiving and concealing stolen property over $1,000 and organized retail crime — as well as first-degree retail fraud — tied to a recent theft of around $2,200 in Vera Bradley purses from the Nana’s Niche and Corner store in Milford, could soon face charges as detectives have tied her to a 2012 shoplifting case at a Saline boutique called Pineapple House. More than $400 worth of items including five umbrellas, four handbags and a cosmetic case were stolen from Pineapple House, according to the police report. All stolen items were under the Vera Bradley brand. Milford investigators are working with police in South Lyon, Davison, Dexter, Saline and as far west as Kalamazoo on other incidents involving thefts of designer handbags, wallets and purses in those locations. Organized retail fraud, a five-year felony, has to do with operating a business with the purpose of stealing items and reselling them. Police reports indicated that Pochmara kept a journal with notes on the merchandise she had. She may have sold the stolen items on and eBay, would return some to retail locations for cash or store credit and would even sell them at discounted prices to acquaintances. In South Lyon, a similar incident was reported Jan. 31 at the Grand Trunke Home shop. Nine hipster purses and four wallets were stolen from the boutique on Pontiac Trail. Police are also investigating a Hallmark in Davison that was hit around the time of the previous thefts. (Source
