Rosamaria Sostilio, SVP Asset Protection, celebrating
25 years with Saks Fifth Ave, now Hudson’s Bay Company

With the exciting news earlier this year of being promoted to Senior Vice President of Asset Protection for Hudson’s Bay Company, comprising Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks Off 5TH, Lord & Taylor, Hudson’s Bay and Home Outfitters, Rosamaria has reached a career milestone that few obtain. As one of the industry’s leading executives she’s also the Chairperson for the National Retail Federation’s LP Advisory Council. Rosamaria has devoted her entire career to helping transform loss prevention into true stakeholders, by having a seat at the table and demonstrating how we can impact the entire organization, while also serving as a beacon in the community during times of crisis.

With an emphasis on inspiring, developing, and mentoring, Rosamaria has impacted hundreds of retail executives. Having helped to develop the NRF’s Women in LP caucus, she’s shown her sincere commitment to helping develop tomorrow’s leaders.

Rosamaria has close to 30 years of industry experience and is one of the first executives to assume a senior vice president position in Asset Protection.

All of us at the Daily, and we’re sure the entire industry, would like to congratulate Rosamaria on her 25 years with Saks Fifth Avenue/HBC; truly a job well done!

True Cost of Fraud 2013 Study: Manage Retail Fraud
The annual LexisNexis True Cost of FraudSM study establishes the actual cost of fraud as borne by U.S. merchants, along with key findings and specific guidance for the industry. While the rebounding economy is softening the blow of merchant fraud losses, merchants are still paying $2.79 in costs for each dollar of fraud losses they incur, up $0.10 on the dollar from 2012 (see figure 1). A spike in online fraud is responsible for these higher costs, as fraud through the online channel burdens merchants with higher fees and replacement costs than fraud through in-person or other channels. The surge in online fraud is driven by the proliferation of malware and data breaches, which facilitate the theft and misuse of consumers’ payment card, merchant account, and alternative payments account information. Merchants would be wise to focus on customer identity and transaction verification, particularly for online transactions, as online fraud and identity fraud take a greater percent of fraud losses in 2013. Merchants are paying more per dollar of fraud in 2013 (2.69 in 2012 to 2.79 in 2013) as a result of an increased proportion of fraud through the online channel. Merchants are losing a lower percent of revenue to fraud this year, at 0.51%, compared to 0.54% in 2012. The distribution of fraud types is shifting towards those associated with the greatest costs. Data breaches represent a multifaceted threat to retailers. Visa’s recent change in chargeback liability assignment has negatively impacted the success rate of some issuers. EMV may prove to be a double edged sword for preventing retail fraud. Large E-Commerce merchants who perceive value in fraud prevention are swayed by their return on investment. The LexisNexis® Fraud MultiplierSM cost shows that international merchants have seen a decline in both the multiplier costs (from 2.52 to 2.32) and the percent of revenue lost to fraud (from 0.74% to 0.69%) in 2013. Identity fraud remained stable at 21% for international merchants, even as it increased from 12% to 17% for all merchants. Mobile merchants are incurring the greatest fraud losses as a percent of revenue among all merchant segments (.75% in 2013). (Source

More than 12% of all ocean freight invoices are reportedly defective - retailers have $300M credit with ocean freight carriers - That's $300M in shrink  U.S. retailers reportedly have $300 million in refunds with ocean freight vendors, yet they are unaware of this because of invoice errors by their ocean freight transportation providers. According to a report from ocean freight auditing service Ocean Audit. Ocean Audit data indicates that manually-driven processes, which include invoicing, have an adverse effect on the accuracy of pricing for more than 40 million containers that are shipped annually to the U.S. More than 12% of all ocean freight invoices are reportedly defective. "U.S. retail companies have been paying overcharges to ocean freight vendors for decades,” said Steve Fereirra, president of Ocean Audit. “This is due to them not having robust controls in place to audit and identify these errors. Without preventive measures in place, these overcharges will continue to cost U.S. retailers millions of dollars in lost profits each year. To make matters worse, consumers end up bearing the brunt of these overages when they make purchases because retailers have no choice but to increase the in-store or e-shop retail price to ensure each imported product is profitable.” (Source

Trustwave plans to fight "baseless allegations" over Target breach - Trustwave denies handling Target data security - one bank pulls out  Last week, Trustmark National Bank and Green Bank NA, filed a complaint in Chicago federal court accusing Target and Trustwave of failing to properly secure customer data, and enabling the theft of 110 million records, including 40 million credit cards. Trustmark and Green Bank are seeking $5 million at least in unspecified damages, but said that losses could top $1 billion for the card issuers they're looking to represent (if class action status is approved), and more than $18 billion for banks and retailers. In response to these claims, Trustwave's CEO, Robert J. McCullen, has issued a statement on the matter, promising that his company is prepared to go to court over this and fight. In addition, sources close to the matter have confirmed that Trustwave didn't offer any additional services to Target, something the statement touches on. Experts in the industry are saying about this lawsuit - "It's a significant development because auditors and security technology companies have never previously faced liability for failing to detect or mitigate breaches. It certainly raises the bar for auditors, who may modify their auditing practices to enhance the scrutiny of the companies they audit," said Olcott. (Source (Source (Source

Spec’s, major Texas liquor store chain reports data breach
One of the biggest Texas liquor store chains reported a security breach that exposed personal information of customers at some of its smaller stores. The Houston-based Spec’s chain said in a Friday statement that the breach exposed data from Oct. 31, 2012, through March 20. Spec’s said that, depending on individual circumstances, information exposed may include information from checks and credit and debit cards. However, most customers weren’t affected and fewer than 5 percent of its transactions were hacked. Spec’s said the intrusion involved 34 of its smaller neighborhood stores operating under various brands in College Station, Corpus Christi, El Paso and the Houston area. (Source

Target's credit-monitoring offer not enough to protect consumers, experts say
It was the data breach that shook the retail world. When Target Corp. announced in December that 110 million of its customers' payment and personal records had been breached, the news was unsettling - both because Target is such an iconic brand and because the breach was so invasive. Target has been busily doing damage control, issuing major apologies, testifying before Congress and contributing $5 million to a nationwide cybersecurity campaign. The company's profits have plunged as wary consumers stayed away and Target still faces dozens of lawsuits by banks and others. Perhaps most importantly, Target has been working to quell anxieties and rebuild the confidence of its shoppers. In its biggest mea culpa, the company has offered Target customers free credit monitoring for a year. But the deadline is fast approaching. Consumers have until April 23 to get signed up for the free offer. But for those who sign up, it's no guarantee that cybercrooks won't steal your identity and wreak financial havoc in other ways, such as using stolen credit/debt card info to siphon money from your accounts.

Two New York men busted for $500,000 credit card fraud - buying prepaid debit cards in drug stores in New Jersey  Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say two New York men face credit card fraud conspiracy charges after they were arrested at an Atlantic City casino. Forty-six-year-old Tracey Coleman of Rosedale and 23-year-old Wanell Wallace of Fresh Meadow allegedly tried to fraudulently charge more than $500,000 using stolen account numbers. They were arrested early Saturday, but the charges against them were not made public until Monday. Prosecutors say Coleman and Wallace used fraudulently obtained credit card account numbers to buy prepaid debit cards in drug stores throughout the New Jersey area. Those prepaid debit cards were used to deposit funds into other accounts, which the men accessed for their personal use. They face 10 years in prison. (Source

Gang of robbers shot it out with police in one of the world's largest Malls (4.38 million square feet) Sunday in Manila  A band of robbers armed with guns and hammers shot it out with Philippine police inside one of the world’s largest shopping malls Sunday, sending Manila shoppers scrambling for safety, police and witnesses said. Waves of police commandos in bullet-proof vests and helmets and armed with assault rifles stormed the SM Mall of Asia (MOA), an AFP photographer saw, after the gang entered a jeweler’s shop inside. witnesses saw five to six men storm the mall, ransacking a jewelry store on the ground floor by destroying a display case with hammers around 7:30 p.m. Hundreds of frightened shoppers, waiters and store clerks ran for dear life amid gunfire toward the exits of the nearly four-hectare (10-acre) complex of department stores, boutiques, restaurants and entertainment establishments by Manila Bay. "Mall [security personnel] are working with the PNP on the situation and no one was hurt from the incident.” One of the robbers fired shots to trigger a commotion among the people and distract the security guards, Villacorte said. “Four of our policewomen were able to give chase to the robbers,” in the course of which one suspect was arrested. The rest of the gang apparently escaped. (Source

After Sanders initial arrest however, other area law enforcement agencies linked Sanders to several cases and added 2 counts of Credit Card Fraud, and Burglary of Conveyance to his charges. On Wednesday, March 26, 2014, Sanders walked into the Wal-Mart Winter Haven, selected a blue Florida Gators tote bag, and then proceeded to the baby section of the store where he loaded the bag with infant clothing concealing it in the tote bag. All of this was caught on surveillance cameras. (Source

St. Paul's Police Department's ORC Unit 'outside-the-box' charges nail organized retail thieves - Burglary charges  A man walks into a St. Paul grocery store, loads up a cart with four large jugs of laundry detergent and wheels them out the front door without paying. The process takes less than four minutes. Police say the 50-year-old caught on store surveillance cameras in the Midway area is a professional shoplifter who has an "almost daily routine of boosting merchandise from retail stores," according to a police report. While police had several theft cases against Kelvin Dewayne Byrd of St. Paul, the value of the items stolen wasn't enough to charge him with felony theft under state law (it has to be at least $1,000), said Sgt. Charlie Anderson, who heads the St. Paul Police Department's Organized Retail Crime Unit, which he started last year. Instead, Anderson worked with prosecutors to take a different tack, charging Byrd with felony burglary. When Byrd was caught shoplifting, stores had issued "trespass" notices to him, which banned him from returning for one year. But because police say Byrd kept going back in the buildings without permission and stealing items, he was charged with two counts of third-degree burglary. The maximum sentence for that offense is five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The charge is "outside the box ... it's creative," Anderson said, but, he added, Byrd's offenses fit the burglary statute. It's a strategy of the ORC unit to be tough on "egregious, brazen, repeat" offenders who are tied to organized retail theft, Anderson said. (Source

The retail environment changes every day and staying in tune with the ebb and flow of it is critical, especially if you want to reach the top of your field. There's much to say about job security and staying with one company most of your career. But if you truly want to reach the top, you've got to be willing to sacrifice, move, and take a risk.
