The Disappearing Front End, Seamless Shopping
& The POS Disruption

Dan Faketty, Vice President, Asset Protection, Southeastern Grocers
Mike Lamb, Vice President, Asset Protection & Safety, the Kroger Company


The demand for seamless shopping, the technology that delivers it, and the physical changes it creates in stores is forcing retailers to completely rethink and reinvent Loss Prevention controls, policies and practices - and possibly even redefine what acceptable levels of shrink are. Dan Faketty and Mike Lamb discuss the LP implications of new POS technologies and customer experiences - from scan-and go and mobile pay to self-checkout kiosks, tablet-based solutions, BOPIS and more.

CONTROLTEK Offers New Low-Profile AM EAS System

CONTROLTEK, an emerging leader in retail asset protection, launched a door frame-mounted AM EAS system named SAM-D, offering a lower profile option for retailers.

Roadrunner Transportation Former CFO Charged with $245 Million Securities and Accounting Fraud Scheme
The former chief financial officer (CFO) of Roadrunner Transportation Systems Inc. (Roadrunner), a publicly traded transportation and trucking company formerly headquartered in Cudahy, Wisconsin, was charged in a superseding indictment unsealed today for his alleged role in a complex securities and accounting fraud scheme that resulted in a loss of more than $245 million in shareholder value. The superseding indictment also includes additional charges against two former Roadrunner finance executives for their roles in the scheme. 

"According to the charges, former CFO Peter Armbruster, and former executives Mark Wogsland and Bret Naggs, used sham accounting entries, misstated accounts, and other means to conceal millions of dollars of bad debts and other financial problems from Roadrunner's shareholders, regulators, lenders, and the investing public," said Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski.

Amazon moving thousands of employees out of Seattle,
relocating key division to nearby city

Amazon plans to relocate its entire Seattle-based worldwide operations team to Bellevue, Wash., by 2023, adding thousands of employees to its new campus just across Lake Washington, according to an internal email obtained by GeekWire.

Moving a large and critical team away from Amazon's Seattle headquarters is a significant relocation of employees on its own, but it's also a weighty symbolic gesture - the clearest sign yet that the tech giant is cooling on its hometown while doubling down on a neighboring city. geekwire.com

Target raises its minimum wage to $13 an hour, with goal of $15 by end of 2020
Target said Thursday it is increasing its minimum hourly wage by a dollar to $13 in June for all current and new employees as part of its goal to hit $15 an hour by the end of 2020. It is the latest step in a series of annual increases it has made since it announced in September 2017 a plan to raise its minimum starting hourly pay from $10 to $15 over three years.

Target's rate is higher than rival Walmart's $11 an hour minimum, set in January 2018, but is still below Amazon, which raised its hourly minimum to $15 an hour in November. cnbc.com

A woman bought out a Payless store to help Nebraska flooding victims
A woman walked out of Payless with hundreds of new shoes, but none of them are for her. Addy Tritt saw that all pairs of shoes were on sale for $1 at her local Payless in Hays, Kansas, last week, and something told her to go.

The retail value of the shoes was around $6,000, Tritt said. She said she negotiated for 2.5 hours until she could get all of the shoes in the store -- 204 pairs -- for pennies each, and only paid $100 for the bill. Tritt donated all of the shoes to Nebraska flood victims.

The store needed to sell the shoes anyway. Payless announced in February that it was closing all its stores across the United States and started liquidation sales. cnn.com

FaceFirst Announces Two-Minute
Face Recognition Deployment

Leading U.S. face recognition company FaceFirst will showcase its new rapid deployment at ISC West, enabling customers and partners to deploy an enterprise platform in the same time it takes to brush your teeth.

LOS ANGELES - FaceFirst, the leading U.S. face recognition platform company, unveiled Two-Minute Deployment, which radically reduces the time and effort needed to install an enterprise face recognition platform. Two-Minute Deployment instantly identifies networked cameras and automatically assigns cameras to servers, delivering true plug-and-play functionality that enables partners and customers to begin using face recognition immediately.

FaceFirst developed Two-Minute Deployment in response to increasing demand for its products from a growing ecosystem of partners and customers. Face recognition requests have become mainstream for system integration companies and service consultants, and frequently top the list of technologies explored by retailers.

"Two-Minute Deployment is an amazing breakthrough for the industry," said FaceFirst CEO Peter Trepp. "We live in a world surrounded by cameras that can help us prevent crime, create great customer experiences and frictionless commerce, but harnessing the power of those cameras has been time-intensive until now. FaceFirst makes doing so ridiculously easy."

The new capability also comes with automated system health monitoring, offering visibility into server performance, memory, camera stream integrity and more. Because face recognition has become a business-critical application, health monitoring is increasingly essential, especially for large deployments such as airports, stadiums and retail chains.

"Two-Minute Deployment will help us keep up with the demand for this transformative technology," said Trepp, whose company works across industries, including Fortune 500 retailers, airports and sports teams. "This goes beyond just installation. Camera tuning and other variables are pre-configured, saving service teams hours of setup work."

The company will showcase Two-Minute Deployment at ISC West in Las Vegas. Two-Minute Deployment is currently available to select customers in private beta, and will be rolled out to partners throughout Q2. Existing customers wishing to upgrade may contact their account rep.





Senator Warren's New "Corporate Executive Accountability Act"
Holding Execs Liable - 1 to 3 Yrs Prison Time for Data Breaches

Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill to hold executives liable for company data breaches. A proposal from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) called the Corporate Executive Accountability Act would hold liable executives at companies making more than $1 billion for data breaches and other civil violations that harm large portions of the American public. Executives could face fines and up to one year of jail for a first violation affecting "health, safety, financial or personal data" of 1% of the U.S. population or the population of a state. Executives could receive up to three years of jail for additional offenses. cmail19.com

Report: FBI Fails to Promptly Notify Cybercrime Victims
Inspect General Cites Numerous Errors in How FBI Makes Notifications
Failed to Notify One Company for Nine Months

The FBI is largely failing to notify cybercrime victims of their rights in a timely manner following a "cyber intrusion," a new report from the U.S. Justice Department's inspector general finds. At times, small errors, such as typographical mistakes, can cause long delays in the notification process, according to the report.

The report is critical of a system called Cyber Guardian, which the bureau uses to track and disseminate cybercrime victim notices. The inspector general says the system largely fails in making sure these notices are sent on time, especially when the issue relates to national security concerns. A new platform, dubbed CyNERGY, will replace it later this year, the report notes.

Not notifying victims of their rights in a timely manner is a violation of attorney general guidelines and could cause additional problems as agents investigate these types of crimes, according to the report. "Some victims complained about the timeliness of the notifications and whether the information provided by the FBI was adequate to remediate the threat to IT systems," the report states.

In one case, the report says, agents did not notify a company about a cyber incident until nine months later. By the time the FBI showed up to investigate, the firm needed to hire a third party to retrieve the logs needed for the investigation.

A.I. Experts Question Amazon's Facial-Recognition Technology
Letter Calls for Amazon to Stop Selling 'Rekognition' Product to Law Enforcement

At least 25 prominent artificial-intelligence researchers, including experts at Google, Facebook, Microsoft and a recent winner of the prestigious Turing Award, have signed a letter calling on Amazon to stop selling its facial-recognition technology to law enforcement agencies because it is biased against women and people of color.

The letter, which was publicly released Wednesday, reflects growing concern in academia and the tech industry that bias in facial-recognition technology is a systemic problem. Some researchers - and even some companies - are arguing the technology cannot be properly controlled without government regulation. nytimes.com

U.S. creating new tech guidance agency to inform Congress
as facial recognition regulation looms

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is in the process of setting up a Science and Technology Assessment and Analytics group to help law-makers understand technology issues related to subjects such as artificial intelligence, 5G networking, online privacy, and presumably biometrics, NextGov reports. biometricupdate.com

Proposed Illinois legislation could be death knell for biometric lawsuits
Although the Illinois Supreme Court's recent decision in Rosenbach v. Six Flags may have upped the ante for employers facing litigation under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act ("BIPA"), a recent bill introduced in the Illinois Senate, SB2134, would remove plaintiffs' right to bring private causes of action under BIPA and instead allow them to file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Labor ("IDOL"), and to be enforced by the DOL and the Illinois Attorney General.

If this proposed bill ultimately becomes signed legislation, it would be the death knell for private party BIPA class actions. As ten or more BIPA class actions are being filed in Illinois state and federal courts on a daily basis, employers should closely follow developments involving this proposed legislation while concurrently pursuing BIPA compliance activities. jdsupra.com



Cards On File Cut eCommerce Friction
Storing a card on file is an integral part of the shopping experience for many consumers, as eCommerce continues to explode across the retail landscape. Late last month, SentiLink, which uses technology to detect and prevent synthetic fraud, raised $14 million in a Series A round earmarked for a number of initiatives. Trust continues to be a key reason consumers choose one bank over another, and the subscription box market in the U.K. is projected to soon have a billion-dollar value.


80.6 percent: Share of credit union customers in a recent survey who identified trust as a reason to remain with their institutions.
44 percent: Share of consumers who have cards on file with three to five merchants.
37 percent: Share of consumers who are very or extremely interested in card-on-file (CoF) security solutions.
$14 million: Amount in Series A funding SentiLink said it had garnered as of last month.

Why Your Fraud Attack Rate Really Matters
Successful fraud attacks are one of the clearest indicators to fraudsters which businesses are the most vulnerable and easiest for them to commit fraud. If you are an "easy target," that generally means that fraudsters have found they can at least get in and begin to transact. With the fraud prevention tools you have in place, you will catch some of the fraud but not all. So, if you have a high attack rate, fraud losses can be nearly 56% higher than a business with a low attack rate. What's more, businesses with a high attack rate generally have much higher operational expenses - like fraud investigator headcounts - because they are "busy" trying to catch fraud from attempts already in their system.

It's time to rethink the impact that the fraud attack rate has on a business. Here are three things to consider.

1. Make it hard for fraudsters to get in
2. Look beyond your own walls
3. Equip your business with the fraud prevention strategies that are the right fit cardnotpresent.com

eBay plans to shutter eBay Commerce Network
A little more than a month after eBay Inc. announced plans to restructure its business, the online marketplace announced that on May 1 it will shutter eBay Commerce Network, its third-party advertising network that enables merchants to advertise their products on non-eBay sites.

EBay Commerce Network evolved out of eBay's 2005 purchase of comparison-shopping engine Shopping.com. Eight years after the deal, the online marketplace created an ad network around Shopping.com, which it dubbed eBay Commerce Network. It then remade Shopping.com into a publisher that was part of the eBay Commerce Network. Now that eBay plans to close down the ad network, it will park the Shopping.com domain while it evaluates various options, says Bridget Davies, the online marketplace's vice president of advertising. digitalcommerce360.com

Simi Valley, CA: Police arrest suspect in alleged shoplifting ring
$5,000 of Old Navy merchandise recovered

Police said they launched an investigation into the case and found two suspects were connected with the commercial shoplifting ring.

One suspect, identified as Danielle Graham, 23, of Los Angeles, was arrested Feb. 28 on suspicion of grand theft, conspiracy and organized retail theft. The investigation continued and later identified as Kelsee Kailee Williams, 20. Investigators also learned that Williams and Graham had taken instructions from family and friends as to which sizes and items to steal. On Tuesday, Williams was found by police at a hotel in Bellflower and taken into custody. She was found with more than $5,000 worth of baby clothes stolen from an Old Navy in Cerritos.

In college Philosophy 101, they introduce the question "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" My answer is yes, but you've got to listen and hear it. Listening and hearing what they say is oftentimes two entirely different functions that most of us don't do on a daily basis, if ever. One of the keys to success is listening and hearing what people say and don't say. It's not just the words, it's the meaning and the intention behind what everyone says in every conversation or interview. Listening is the key and hearing is the lock the key fits into. If you expect to lead a group or land that perfect job, you've got to listen and hear what they're saying in order to respond, influence and truly make a difference.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
