With facial recognition, shoplifting may get you banned in places you've never been
At my bodega down the block, photos of shoplifters sometimes litter the windows, a warning to would-be thieves that they're being watched. Those unofficial wanted posters come and go, as incidents fade from the owner's memory.

But with facial recognition, getting caught in one store could mean a digital record of your face is shared across the country. Stores are already using the technology for security purposes and can share that data -- meaning that if one store considers you a threat, every business in that network could come to the same conclusion.

One mistake could mean never being able to shop again.

While that may be good news for shopkeepers, it raises concerns about potential overreach. It's just one example of how facial recognition straddles the line between being a force for good and being a possible violation of personal privacy. Privacy advocates fear that regulations can't keep up with the technology -- found everywhere from your phone to selfie stations -- leading to devastating consequences.

People don't have to be convicted of a crime to be placed on a private business' watch list. There aren't any rules or standards governing how companies use facial recognition technology.

"The clients use it at their own discretion for their own purposes," says Daniel Putterman, co-founder and director of video surveillance startup Kogniz. "If someone is falsely accused of being a shoplifter, that's beyond our control." cnet.com

Customer Service Vital to Security Officer Sector
From welcoming employees and guests with a warm and friendly smile to giving directions, the customer service role that security personnel play is infinite.

The security officer sector is growing exponentially, as is the need for our country's officers to be comprehensively trained in a wide variety of areas, ranging from life-saving initiatives to 'white glove' customer service training. The Freedonia Group, an international business research company, reports that "U.S. demand for private contracted security services is projected to expand 4.2 percent to $66.9 billion" in 2019. We need to ensure that the flourishing physical security workforce is ready and able to take on the daily customer service challenges that they face in divergent sectors across multiple industries.

The customer is not only the client, but is also anyone who crosses the path of a security officer. A "white glove" service-oriented attitude translates to not only satisfying customers, but delighting them while mixing security with concierge-like customer service. Whether assisting a visitor or a lost child, the security officer is a brand ambassador tasked to exceed the customer's needs. For example, if a customer needs something in 10 minutes, deliver it in nine. If customers need information, deliver it to them with options, or if customers ask, "how?" tell them "why" as well as how. securitymagazine.com

     Do You or Don't You?: Jewelry Store Managers Sound Off On Security Guards

Michael Avenatti arrested for alleged $20 million extortion attempt against Nike
Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested on charges related to an alleged $20 million extortion of the athletic apparel company Nike, federal authorities said Monday. The charges were revealed less than an hour after Avenatti announced a press conference to discuss purported claims against Nike.

A criminal complaint against Avenatti says he "devised a scheme to extort a company by means of an interstate communication by threatening to damage the company's reputation if the company did not agree to make multi-million dollar payments to Avenatti and [co-conspirator], and further agree to pay an additional $1.5 million to a client of Avenatti's."

The complaint says that last Wednesday, Avenatti and a cooperating witness spoke by phone with lawyers for Nike "during which Avenatti stated, with respect to his demands for payment of milions of dollars, that if those demands were not met 'I'll go take ten billion dollars off your client's market cap ... I'm not f---ing around.'" cnbc.com

2019 store closures close to surpassing last year's total
The American brick-and-mortar landscape continues to undergo a massive retraction, but that's tempered by store openings that largely reflect a new wave in physical retail. Year to date, U.S. retailers have announced 5,399 store closures and 2,396 store openings, compared to 5,726 closures and 3,243 openings for all of 2018, according to the latest Coresight Research store tracker report.

Bankrupt Midwestern discounter Shopko offered the notable closure story of the week, with plans to shutter 120 stores on top of 251 from earlier in the year. Shoes of Prey is also closing down, which will free up space in Nordstrom stores in the U.S.

But the report also noted openings. Hudson Yards in Manhattan, which opened to the public on March 15 to great fanfare, holds 720,000 leasable square feet anchored by Neiman Marcus. And Ikea will open its first U.S. small-format store in Manhattan next month, Coresight said. retaildive.com

Australia: 'It messed my head up big time', LP Manager Says
Uniqlo accused of homophobia, fat-shaming and anti-white racism

Former Uniqlo employees have spoken out about homophobic bullying, fat-shaming and discrimination against non-Asian staff.

A former employee of retail giant Uniqlo says he was subjected to homophobic bullying by Japanese managers and suffers from generalised anxiety disorder as a result of his time there. The 25-year-old, who asked not to be identified, worked as the company's NSW loss prevention manager from 2014 before he "ended up having a bit of a breakdown" and leaving in 2016.

The man is one of a growing number of Uniqlo employees to describe a toxic culture at the fast fashion giant, which has carved out a significant share of the $1.8 billion sector since opening its doors Down Under in 2012.

Former HR manager Melanie Bell last month sued Uniqlo for $1 million alleging she had been bullied and discriminated against due to her "caucasian heritage". Other employees subsequently spoke out about similar experiences.

Nearly 10 more people have since reached out, including a former senior Australian executive, to describe incidents of bullying, unsafe work practices, fat-shaming and perceived favouritism towards staff of Asian heritage. news.com.au

Amazon 'No'?
San Francisco could ban Amazon's cashier-free stores

San Francisco is considering a ban on cashless Amazon stores as it weighs a bill that would make it one of a growing list of cities forbidding cashless retailers.

This past week, New Jersey followed Philadelphia's lead in signing into law a cashless store ban. Lawmakers argue that cashless stores can effectively discriminate against low-income consumers, who may not have a bank account or credit card. But businesses say going cashless is good for consumers and reduces the risk of robbery and the ability to evade taxes.

In San Francisco, District Five Supervisor Vallie Brown introduced a bill in late February that aims to ban cashless retailers. At a Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, Brown expanded the proposal to include Amazon Go stores, which were originally excluded because they are automated and do not have employees that would handle cash, according to a report from Curbed. cnbc.com

Drunken online shopping is big business - especially for Amazon
Amazon is already more than dominant in the online shopping space, but add a shot or three of tequila and that Amazon Prime free two-day shipping looks even more appealing.

Tech and business newsletter The Hustle surveyed more than 2,000 alcohol-drinking adults about their online shopping behavior after imbibing and found that on average, shoppers spent more than $400 per year on items bought while intoxicated. If you apply that number beyond the respondents to include America's legal alcohol-drinkers, you get roughly $48 billion on drunken purchases every year.

Most of that money is going to Amazon. Based on the survey, 85 percent of drunk shoppers visit and make ill-advised purchases Amazon, followed by Ebay at 21 percent, and then Etsy at 12 percent. After drinking either beer, wine, or liquor, clothing is the most alluring (and popular) purchase. mashable.com

How Sears Lost the American Shopper
An oral history of its undoing from executives and employees who lived it

It was the 1970s and Sears was at its peak. It dominated American retailing. Its corporate headquarters was the tallest building in the world. A job at Sears was a ticket to a long and lucrative career. But rivals like Walmart were bearing down, shopping patterns were changing and Sears started making a series of wrong bets.

Over the last four decades, a succession of CEOs have tried to reinvent, reimagine and, finally, save Sears. One discussed merging with rivals Best Buy and Home Depot, talks not previously reported. Another opened the door to hedge-fund billionaire Eddie Lampert, who went on to slash spending with little investment in stores. Amid new consumer habits, technology shifts and Sears's own missteps, customers fled.

What were the turning points when it lost its grip on the American shopper? Here is the story, told by eight people who lived it (edited from interviews). Mr. Lampert, who is poised to steer a vastly shrunken Sears out of bankruptcy, declined to be interviewed. wsj.com

Three suspects plead guilty to fencing approximately $390k worth of stolen items on eBay

Three people have pleaded guilty in connection with a scheme to accept and sell stolen goods from the Chesapeake Pawn Brokers in Edgewood, according to the Baltimore office of the U.S. Secret Service. David Gutman, 55, of Baltimore, pleaded guilty Friday to wire fraud conspiracy, while co-defendants, Marina Gelfen, 55, of Reisterstown, and Dmitry Babich, 48, of Owings Mills, previously pleaded guilty to the same charge.

According to their plea agreements, between Jan. 1, 2015, and July 8, 2018, Gelfen, Babich and Gutman paid cash to "boosters," a common term for shoplifters, in exchange for merchandise stolen from Home Depot. The products include exclusive brands sold only through the Home Depot, such as Makita, Ryobi, Ridgid and other brand power tools, the release said. Read more

Businesses Manage 9.7PB of Data but Struggle to Protect It
Their attempts to secure it may be putting information at risk, a new report finds

Organizations managed an average of 9.7 petabytes of data in 2018, a 569% spike compared with the 1.45 petabytes they handled in 2016. Most see the value of data, and more are monetizing it, yet very few are confident in their existing tools' ability to properly protect information.

According to Dell EMC's latest "Global Data Protection Index," businesses are managing much more data, nearly all (92%) recognize its value, and 36% are monetizing it. Still, most are challenged to secure it, and their attempts may be putting information at risk. More than three-quarters (76%) of respondents say their companies had "some type of disruption" within a 12-month period, and 27% couldn't recover their data using their data protection tools - nearly double the 14% who said the same in 2016.

Coincidentally, 76% of respondents are using at least two data protection vendors, which researchers say makes them 35% more likely to experience disruption during a 12-month time frame than those with a single vendor. The most common types of interference among companies using multiple vendors was unplanned systems downtime (43%), ransomware attacks preventing data access (32%), and loss of information (29%). darkreading.com

Hackers Target Retailers with Credential Abuse Attacks, says Akamai
Credential abuse attacks, the preponderance of API-call traffic on the web and the apparent misrepresentation of IPv6-based traffic are the main pressing cyber security concerns, according to the Akamai 2019 State of the Internet / Security report.

Hackers have directed credential abuse attempts at retail sites more than 10 billion times from May to December last year, making retail the most targeted segment studied, according to the report.

The Company studied the credential abuse technique known as credential stuffing, where hackers systematically use botnets to try stolen login information across the web. They target login pages for banks and retailers on the premise that many customers use the same login credentials for multiple services and accounts. Interest in retail is driven by the value of merchandise, which hackers acquire through compromised accounts and then frequently resell. thefastmode.com

Magecart payment card skimmer gang returns stronger than ever
Web-based card skimmers are becoming harder to detect and remove

Hackers are using increasingly sophisticated techniques to hide malicious code on e-commerce websites with the goal of stealing payment card details. Known as
web skimmers, these malicious scripts have led to major breaches at online retailers over the past year and will very likely continue to cause problems for some time to come.

Hacking into e-commerce websites and stealing credit card details from databases goes back 15 years or more. However, as the security of both physical and online transactions increased over time, the
attacks have shifted to the point of entry rather than stored records.

Over the past year, security professionals have investigated and tracked an increasing number of malicious actors that specialize in compromising websites and injecting malicious obfuscated scripts to steal card details as users are entering them into payment pages. One of the most prolific such gangs is called Magecart and is actually an umbrella organization with different subgroups.

Magecart has been responsible for recent card breaches on websites belonging to high-profile companies like British Airways, TicketMaster, Newegg, Feedify, Shopper Approved, as well as sites belonging to numerous smaller online merchants. csoonline.com

No one key risk indicator is generic across all businesses
The challenge for any organisation when defining key risk indicators (KRIs) for cyber security is that it is different for every enterprise. There is no blueprint to use as guidance; no one KRI that is pervasive or generic across all businesses, or even industry sectors, because the variances of what needs to be considered are diverse.

Cyber attacks tend to be launched to either access data held by the company or to disrupt business operations. Not only will the impact of an attack vary by company, but even hacks with similar objectives (such as data gathering), could be attempted in very different ways.

The data held by business-to-consumer companies will be of great interest in data harvesting attacks. computerweekly.com

Fraud fears limit cross‑border ecommerce, but they don't have to
Right now, only 36% of US ecommerce merchants sell across borders, but cross-border sales offer an opportunity for growth. Even with low rates of cross-border sales now, the U.S. is second only to China as a destination for international online shoppers. And cross-border growth rates for the next several years range from 10% in the U.S. to 30% in Europe, according to PaymentsSource. Worldwide, the B2C cross-border ecommerce market is expect to be worth $1 trillion by next year.

The U.S. is popular with cross-border shoppers and there's a world of growth waiting, so what's holding ecommerce sellers back? Concerns about fraud.

Fraud is a valid worry for ecommerce merchants. Card-not-present fraud is currently growing fast. It's expected to cost the global ecommerce industry $130 billion from now through 2023. Many sellers see cross-border sales as inherently riskier than domestic ones, so they block international orders or reject most of them. That approach, though, is costing merchants good orders.

The key to selling confidently into other markets is to understand the risks and potential rewards, and to develop a fraud-detection plan that doesn't include generating high rates of false positives through automatic order rejections. After all, it's hard to sell profitably into any market if your store earns a reputation for turning away good customers. Many consumers won't try again if their orders are falsely declined, and they may share their negative experiences with others on social media. digitalcommerce360.com

Should online retailers blacklist shoppers who return too much?
Today's retail landscape is tough - and getting tougher. Businesses are under increasing pressure, from reduced margins to online competition, and now they're facing another problem. I'm talking about 'serial returners' - consumers that deliberately buy more items than they plan to keep and plan to return some later.

Earlier this year, Amazon pioneered a move to ban repeat offenders and started closing accounts of customers who "request too many refunds." On the face of it, Amazon's action is sensible; it ensures they can continue to offer the lowest price possible to their customers. It doesn't surprise me that other brands are starting to follow their lead.

Returns are incredibly expensive for retailers of all sizes, particularly as e-commerce businesses often operate on smaller margins. Almost half of all retailers (44 percent) claim their margins are being impacted by the cost of handling and packaging returns. Some companies find that it can cost double the amount for a product to be returned, as it does to be delivered. With payment refunds, customer communication and restocking warehouse shelves all costing money and valuable staff time, returns have an immediate impact on retailers. Items coming back for return can pass through as many as seven members of back-office staff - and each of these steps adds hugely to the cost.

Yet stopping the flow of serial returns can only be done with the right technology - which can deliver greater data-driven insights and more options to consider when managing serial returners. Without the tools to identify or monitor who their problem customers are, companies will be working blind. Read more: retailcustomerexperience.com

Santa Fe County, NM: License plate check leads to high-speed I-25 chase, crash; suspect tied to Home Depot tool thefts
