Finding the Needle in the Hay Stack - Yum
Brands Dir of LP search proving to be difficult & taking months to find that
perfect fit Listed on our Featured Jobs now for months, the Yum
brands job is proving to be a difficult and long-long process. With requiring a
bi-lingual with international experience, a four-year degree and someone with
Food Service industry experience, they may be waiting a long time before they
find that executive. Unless someone pops up out of the McDonalds LP team I doubt
very seriously they'll find that needle in the hay stack. But given that these
jobs can typically go 6 to 12 months to fill, it's not unusual. They'll end up
giving in a bit on their requirements or they'll hire an operator or federal law
enforcement executive. But hey, we've been wrong before. Nevertheless, it's a
great opportunity. The issue for the executive is he or she will be spending
more time abroad than here in the states. As over the years Yum's unloaded most
of their U.S. stores but remain heavily invested in Asia, the Middle East and
South America - the key reason why they want a bi-lingual with international
experience obviously. They've passed on a lot of strong LP executives so far.
And word has it they're still looking. Just a thought, Gus Downing
How to reduce losses caused by theft at POS
Retailers can take steps to try to prevent or at least reduce losses due to
theft at point of sale (POS) and shrink. Here are some suggestions from experts
in the field:
Leverage the latest technologies.
Fortunately for retailers, there's no shortage of technology tools to deter
theft and shrink. The use of electronic article surveillance (EAS) technology
remains a viable part of retailer's efforts in shrink reduction.
This includes using anti-theft tags, spider wraps and technology that detects
foil-lined bags and EAS jammers that some shoplifters use to try to bypass
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems, which use tags and readers that
enable retailers to track items as they're moved within and outside
of a store, can help deter theft and provide information about the
type of merchandise that's being taken.
Other technology tools that can be used to prevent theft are video systems such
as closed-circuit television (CCTV), which can be used at the point of sale or
elsewhere in stores; and facial recognition systems, which retailers can use to
capture images of offenders.
The use of video analytics with overhead CCTV observation of the sales counter
"can be a real-time deterrent to incidents of internal shrink," says Bob Moraca,
VP of LP for the NRF.
Train your employees well.
The people who work in stores can do a lot to help prevent theft.
"A successful program to reduce shrink at POS leverages both technology and
training," says Lisa LaBruno, SVP for Retail Operations at RILA. "Among the key
components of associate training is making every employee feel like
he or she has a responsibility to prevent shrink from occurring," LaBruno
says. "Associates are trained to be vigilant, check inside large containers to
prevent package stuffing and to exercise good customer service when
they suspect theft."
Interact more with customers.
In a sort of reverse social engineering tactic, retailers can help stop theft by
engaging more with clients while they're in the store.
"The most effective deterrent to a potential shoplifter is good customer
service," says Keith Aubele, president & CEO of Retail Loss Prevention Group, a
consulting firm. "Making eye contact and acknowledging customers as
they enter the store. The last thing a shoplifter wants is
interaction with a store employee."
Create the right corporate culture.
Anti-theft technologies and tactics are helpful, but they're not enough. "All
the tools in the world are not a replacement for the most critical
foundation needed to prevent, isolate and resolve retail losses, and
that is a corporate culture focused on mitigating loss," says Aubele.
"When a top down ownership/ executive C-suite culture exists that
truly understands loss impact via shrink to profitability, as well
as the many negative societal outcomes from retail crime, then true
prevention can occur."
Finance Execs See Chip Cards as Anti-Fraud Boon
With issuers and retailers preparing to switch to anti-fraud, chip-based credit
cards in October, 92% of finance professionals believe the technology will be
effective in preventing point-of-sale fraud, according to a new survey. In its
2015 Payments Fraud and Control Survey, the Association for Finance
Professionals (AFP) found that 61% of respondents believe chip-and-PIN will be
the most effective authentication method for mitigating fraud. Only 7% saw
chip-and-signature as most effective, as reported on CFO.com. The survey "should
serve as a call to action for card vendors," Jim Kaitz, president and CEO of AFP,
said in a news release. "Financial professionals clearly prefer chip-and-PIN
over chip-and-signature in the fight against fraud, and they overwhelmingly
believe in EMV."
Credit card of the future could stop fraud - CVV code on back constantly changes
As banks seek to reduce fraud, one credit card maker has a prototype with a
constantly-changing code on the back. The mini ink screen is powered by a
lithium-ion battery (like a phone) the size of a postage stamp that's designed
to last three years. A computer chip randomizes the number every 40 or 60
minutes. The changing code renders the card useless to anyone who has
written down your credit card number, expiration date and the code on the back.
One major barrier, though, is that each card is 50 times more expensive than the
magnetic stripe cards still being issued by banks in the United States. And it's
10 times more expensive than the latest chip-based cards.
A Step Closer to Meaningful Data Breach Legislation
Wednesday, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing
and Trade marked up and voted to advance the "Data Security and Breach
Notification Act of 2015" to the full committee. The draft legislation, which
was authored by Subcommittee Chairman Michael Burgess (R-TX) along with Reps.
Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Peter Welch (D-VT), aims to enact a national data
breach notification standard that preempts existing state laws.
U.S. Offers $3 Million Bounty for 2 Russian Cybercriminals A bounty of $3 million
is up for grabs for information leading to the arrest of two cybercriminals
believed to be in Russia, the U.S. State Department said Thursday. Roman Zolotarev and Konstantin Lopatin, both Russian citizens, are wanted in
connection with an international crime ring that committed credit card fraud and
identity theft causing at least $50 million in damages,
the State Department
said on its website. The ring trafficked stolen and manufactured credit cards as
well as identity information via the website Carder.su, which Zolotarev is
suspected of leading, the statement said. So far 30 individuals connected with
the ring have been convicted, and another 25 are either wanted or pending trial,
the State Department said. The bounties are set to be paid out by the State
Department's Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program, established in 2013.
The State Department has asked anyone with information about Zolotarev or
Lopatin to contact a U.S. embassy or consulate, or to call its hotline.
To Sprint or to Liquidate - That is the Question for Radio Shack - As
Liquidators Fight For Cash Over Cell Phone Stores RadioShack Corp.
said an offer from Standard General LP to save much of the iconic chain is the
best to emerge from an auction, beating out rival offers that would see the
retailer shut down. At a bankruptcy-court hearing Thursday, RadioShack asked a
judge to sign off on the takeover, which would save much of the chain from
liquidation. More than half of RadioShack's 4,000 stores are being shut down,
but Standard General has said it will keep 1,743 stores open, in a bid that has
been valued at about $160 million. The Standard General deal still faces a
challenge from Salus Capital Partners, which contends it didn't get a fair
hearing at the auction on a bid it tried to make in an alliance with
GameStop Outlines Acquisition Plans in Push to Diversify
GameStop Corp., faced with a shrinking core business selling video games, is
accelerating its effort to diversify by adding to its stores that offer AT&T
Inc. wireless plans and acquiring other technology retail chains. The Grapevine,
Texas-based company, which won court approval to take over 163 locations from
bankrupt RadioShack Corp., is looking for acquisitions, Chief Operating Officer
Tony Bartel said in an interview Thursday after reporting fourth-quarter
results. The retailer is evolving into a holding company for a variety of store
concepts, he said. "We're exploring acquisition and partner opportunities that
leverage our core competencies," Bartel said. GameStop is trying to stay ahead
of a transition in video games that threatens to make its namesake stores,
ubiquitous in malls for more than a decade, obsolete."
Ex-American Apparel CEO Dov Charney seeks $40 million in damages
The struggling clothing company's controversial founder is claiming more than
$40 million in damages stemming from his surprise ouster last year, even as the
retailer this week disclosed a probe by securities regulators into the affair.
Los Angeles lawyer Keith Fink -- who, in a twist, had formerly represented
American Apparel employees suing Charney for harassment -- said in a letter last
week that the retailer is liable for $20 million to $25 million in damages for
Charney's loss of employment. That includes Charney's claim to 13 million
American Apparel shares, nearly $6 million in severance and $1.3 million in
unpaid vacation for the ex-CEO, who was a notorious workaholic, Fink said.
Another AutoZone Lawsuit - Employee Fired Following LP Investigation Sues for
Sexual Harassment Doris Feliciano is a black female who practices the
Rastafarian religion. She claims her former employer, AutoZone, had a problem
with that and discriminated against her. She also claims an ex-boss sexually
harassed her at work. In a late March ruling, Feliciano scored a partial victory
in the long-running case. Connecticut's highest court has ruled that her sexual
harassment claim should be heard by a jury. However, her claims of race and
religion discrimination claims were dismissed. While working as a supervisor at
the Bloomfield, CT store in 2007, AutoZone's automatic loss prevention computer
program flagged 20 transactions involving the same customer's loyalty card
number. Nineteen of the 20 transactions were processed by Feliciano. A loss
prevention specialist was tabbed by the company to investigate the matter.
Feliciano's story was that her customer service number was available in the
store's computers for other employees to use. The investigation results were
sent to AutoZone's staff attorney in Tennessee, who determined that Feliciano
should be fired. Feliciano filed a complaint with the state Commission on Human
Rights and Opportunities in which she claimed she was terminated on the basis of
her national origin, religion and race. In her lawsuit, Feliciano alleged that
store manager Michael Balboni constantly harassed her by making offensive
comments regarding her appearance in front of other employees; she said he would
wear a dreadlock wig and call her a thief. She claimed Balboni repeatedly
referred to her as "f'ing Jamaican," suggested that Jamaicans live in grass
huts, wear grass skirts, drink out of coconut shells, and eat cats and dogs.
Further, she claimed Balboni sexually harassed her by rubbing up against her
body when he would walk past her. (AutoZone
was recently ordered to pay $185 million in punitive damages to a former
store manager who suffered pregnancy and gender discrimination on the job.)

Canadian Retail Sales Are In Good Shape
Almost all the recent decline in total retail growth is due to lower gas prices,
while other retail sectors are performing within or better than their normal
range of variation. Gasoline stations account for about 12.5% of total retail,
so a major sales decline in this subsector is a significant drag on the overall
total. Excluding gas stations however, the rest of retail was up 4.2% in January
year-over-year, and up 4.9% for the 3 months ending January. retail-insider.com

April 1st - Last 87 by mid-May - The Target impact on LP jobs - Simple Law of
Supply & Demand regretfully With Target hiring well over 300 LP
positions over the last two years and paying top end for the executive levels it
now causes a real problem for those now losing their jobs. With the LP industry
being rather small to begin with once all of those folks left their last
employer those jobs were either filled or eliminated. Now going back to the
market, a small one at that, what many of them will find is that there's too
much supply and little if any demand in this tight market. The one saving grace
is that the Canadian Push is still happening and their biggest retailer Loblaw
is growing and opening over 50 stores this year alone. However, there won't be
enough jobs and some will have to transition out of LP. So if you hear from one
of these unfortunate individuals please take the time to offer your advice, your
guidance, and even take the time to call them back - as you don't know how much
that will mean to them. After all one day the shoe may be on the other foot.

Card-Not-Present Fraud Leads Global Rebound in Payment Card Fraud
Industry efforts to reduce fraud exposure through certain payment technologies
have resulted in sharp declines in certain types of payment fraud. For example,
the smart chip embedded in EMV cards to store and protect cardholder data
thwarts counterfeit card fraud. However, changing consumer trends, particularly
the growth of card-not-present (CNP) transactions online has left the industry
somewhat exposed, and as a result global fraud losses are once again on the
rise. A latest research report, Global Payment Card Fraud Trends and Statistics,
examines global payment card fraud by examining fraud statistics and initiatives
in four selected countries: the United Kingdom, France, Australia, and South
Africa. The report discusses overall fraud rates on domestically issued cards
and shows the rate by type of fraud, including counterfeit card, lost/stolen
card, card ID theft, mail non-received, and card-not-present fraud. "While the
future of the payments industry is hard to predict, one certainty is that
cybercriminals will continue their attacks on consumers, businesses, and
financial institutions via the payment channels available today. Although the
payments industry may not be able to end all types of payment fraud, it
continues to evolve new fraud deterrents and become better equipped to tackle
criminal attacks. The hope is that with the creation of new security
technologies like tokenization, the industry can begin to play offense rather
than always having to play defense against payment fraud attacks," comments
Tristan Hugo-Webb the primary author of the research.

Westmoreland Co, PA Women to stand trial in theft of $360,000 of drugs from
Norwin Pharmacy A North Huntingdon pharmacy technician confessed she
stole 180 to 600 pain pills on every shift she worked for more than a year, then
handed them over to be sold on the street, according to the state attorney
general's office. Agent Andrew Sakmar testified at a preliminary hearing that
former Norwin Pharmacy technician JoAnn Gruber, 53, admitted in an interview
last fall that she stole "tens of thousands" of painkillers including oxycodone,
Xanax and Opana, and gave them to Michele L. Garufi, 41, of Hempfield, to
resell. After listening to two hours of testimony from Sakmar, Greensburg police
Detective Jerry Vernail and another co-defendant, Ronald Menchio III, 24, of
Hempfield, Greensburg District Judge James Albert ordered Gruber and Garufi to
stand trial. The women are charged with multiple criminal counts by Attorney
General Kathleen Kane's office for running a painkiller distribution ring that
sold at least 12,000 pills with an estimated street value of $360,000 between
2013 through September 2014.
MO Police catch shoplifters using 'booster bags' to elude store security systems
Retailers and law enforcement are catching on to a shoplifting trend in which
criminals alter what look like regular shopping bags to act as a barrier to
stores' security sensors. Chesterfield Police seized booster bags from suspected
shoplifters Carrie and April Chambers after they visited Victoria's Secret at
Chesterfield Mall. The suspects allegedly inserted a lining into shopping bags
from mall stores Hot Topic, Charlotte Russe and H&M to hide stolen goods and
remove them from shops without security alarms sounding. In their case, however,
the booster bags did not work. "A lot of retailers are aware of these items and
they look for those items as an indication that a possible shoplifting is about
to occur," said Detective Marshall Broughton of Des Peres Police after a similar
incident occurred at West County Mall in August 2014. Police are also aware of
the altered shopping bags and were able to catch the suspects allegedly
shoplifting from Victoria's Secret. Both Carrie and April Chambers are charged
with felony stealing.
sought in rash of thefts from CVS stores in Berks Co, PA Police are

Constitution Blvd. in Kutztown on Monday, according to Chief Craig Summers,
Kutztown Police Department. Police said they believe the same pair struck two
other CVS stores in Berks County on the same day. About $850 worth of Rogaine
and Prilosec were taken from the CVS store at 8565 Allentown Pike (Route 222) in
Maidencreek Township (Blandon), and $1,447 worth of Rogaine and Crest

Two arrested in $1 million armed robbery of Charleston, SC jewelry store
Authorities have arrested two career criminals in connection with the armed
robbery of $1 million worth of jewelry from a "luxury" jewelry store in
Charleston in 3 weeks ago. Police located one suspect in San Francisco and the
other in Atlanta. Around 11:23 a.m. Wednesday March 4, 2015 Demetre Jewelers at
253 King Street was robbed. The jewelry store describes itself as a "nationally
known luxury jewelry store." A police report made available says a list of the
items taken from Demetre Jewelers includes 11 Rolex watches worth $10,000 each
and $500,000 worth of merchandise that wasn't inventoried. According to police,
two men wearing masks, one armed with a handgun and one armed with a hammer,
robbed the business. The hammer was used to smash a show case and they stole

valuables around 2 p.m., the chief said. He got into a white Mercedes Benz SUV
waiting in the mall parking lot.

beats Dollar General Employee while shoplifting in Louisville, KY A Dollar
General store clerk was attacked and beaten to the floor after trying to stop a
shoplifter and it was all caught on surveillance video. Police say it happened
around 3 p.m. on Wednesday when two people walked into the Dollar General on
Outer Loop and purchased a few items. As they were about to leave, the woman
headed to the makeup aisle. "The manager went to him and asked, 'Hey could you
leave your bag up front, you know it's just common courtesy, could you leave
your bag up front?' And he got into her face and said, 'No I'm not doing that,
I've bought these things, I'm shopping, I'll continue to shop'," Det. Underwood
told WDRB News. The pair continued to shop and at some point the man picked up
and put on a blue hat worth about $4. "The manager again asked the man to leave
his bag up front. Another store clerk heard this and walked down the aisle to
see what was going on. "Looked at him and said, 'hey what's up?' and our suspect
at that point got into his face and said, 'Nothing going on, you need to stay
out of this,'" Det. Underwood said. The man was again asked to leave his bag up
front and take off the hat. That's when the violence ensued and the store clerk
was attacked. The two men can be seen on video flying out of the aisle, throwing
punches with items falling off the shelves.

In the 1980's, it was common practice when you resigned from a
company to make copies of your files and take them with you to a certain extent.
Everyone knew about it and it was almost accepted behavior. Today, it's quite
different and much more serious. So much more information is available to
virtually everyone that, one push of a key, and certainly a well-orchestrated
effort can have dramatic consequences and can bring criminal charges. In today's
world, intellectual property is a critical asset to every organization and it's
the responsibility of every executive to safeguard and maintain their company's
intellectual property integrity. Every organization, regardless of size, can be
impacted and quite frankly most have been.
