Neiman Marcus Breach Linked to Russians Who Eluded U.S.

Hackers who raided the credit-card payment system of Neiman Marcus Group Ltd. belong to a sophisticated Russian syndicate that has stolen more than 160 million credit-card numbers from retailers over seven years, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The Russian group is well known to U.S. authorities, who have indicted several members and linked it to pillaging more than 100 companies, including 7-Eleven, J.C. Penney, Visa and the French retailer Carrefour SA. Five members of the gang were indicted last year at a federal court in New Jersey. Only two of them are in custody, and Russia is seeking the return of one who is in a Dutch jail. The group is larger than that and membership fluctuates as key leaders break off to do heists on their own or with other cybercriminals they meet on underground forums, according to court documents and investigators. The members who have been detained appear to have been easily replaced, and the arrests have done little to slow the group’s activities. Attempts to shut down the criminal network have failed despite international sting operations and secret meetings with Russian intelligence officials. The core of this gang has emerged as one of the most prolific and successful criminal hacking syndicates in the world, according to former and current law enforcement officials who asked not to be named. The breach at Neiman Marcus has garnered less attention than those at Target and Michaels, in part because the theft was smaller. After saying in January that about 1.1 million credit cards may have been compromised, Neiman Marcus later lowered the estimate to 350,000, and said that 9,200 had been used fraudulently as of Feb. 21. The sophistication of the Neiman Marcus operation, including how the stolen cards were sold, set it apart from the Target attack. (Source

New Era of 'Mega Breaches' Signals Bigger Payouts and Shifting Behavior for Cybercriminals - 552 Million Identities Exposed in 2013 alone  The number of mega data breaches went from 1 in 2012 to 8 in 2013. Symantec Corp.'s "Internet Security Threat Report" shows a significant shift in cybercriminal behavior, revealing the bad guys are plotting for months before pulling off huge heists - instead of executing quick hits with smaller rewards. "One mega breach can be worth 50 smaller attacks," said Kevin Haley, director, Symantec Security Response. "While the level of sophistication continues to grow among attackers, what was surprising last year was their willingness to be a lot more patient - waiting to strike until the reward was bigger and better." In 2013, there was a 62 percent increase in the number of data breaches from the previous year, resulting in more than 552 million identities exposed - proving cybercrime remains a real and damaging threat to consumers and businesses alike. The size and scope of breaches is exploding, putting the trust and reputation of businesses at risk, and increasingly compromising consumers' personal information -- from credit card numbers and medical records to passwords and bank account details. Each of the eight top data breaches in 2013 resulted in the loss of tens of millions of data records. By comparison, 2012 only had a single data breach reach that threshold. "Nothing breeds success like success - especially if you're a cybercriminal," said Haley. "The potential for huge paydays means large-scale attacks are here to stay." Targeted attacks were up 91 percent and lasted an average of three times longer compared to 2012. (Source

Video surveillance cabling, infrastructure market to expand dramatically in North America  With lower-powered infrared and PTZ cameras hitting the market, more end users are turning to nonlocal Ethernet sets to power their video surveillance networks, particularly for cameras in perimeter security locations. Add to that the fact that end users are finding that infrastructure and cabling, rather than surveillance equipment, tend to be where malfunctions originate, and you have a market that’s poised to become a higher priority investment for end users, according to Aaron Dale, market analyst, security & fire, at IHS Research. The global market is projected to be worth $1.4 billion by the end of the forecast period. The growth rate of the market, he added, is expected to exceed that of the broader market for video surveillance equipment. While the market is being fueled by growth in the video surveillance market at large, it’s also being propelled “through the transition to IP networks” from analog to IP camera networks. Some technologically specific trends within that evolution are also generating growth in cabling and infrastructure, particularly in the near-term. (Source

RILA's 2014 AP Conference Kicks Off in Indianapolis - Highlights from Day One  The conference kicked off with a lot of buzz about the critical role of asset protection in achieving retail success, the changing face (and faces) of AP, and lots of talk about new technologies, innovation and training. Here are a few highlights from Day One: Rick Damron, COO of Lowe's Companies, Inc., shared his unique perspective on the critical role of asset protection in delivering the overall customer experience, driving sales and customer satisfaction while mitigating risk. Afterburner team member Scott "Intake" Kartvedt got the crowd motivated for flawless execution, using the proven process used by elite fighter pilots to execute missions when stakes are high and failure is not an option. RILA's signature Open Forums occurred at the beginning of the program and featured extended discussion time, where participants met peers with mutual interests and discussed business challenges in an atmosphere designed for open sharing. Jack Uldrich, global futurist, and best-selling author outlined ten trends transforming the world of retail. Attendees learned a series of concrete actions to take today to future-proof their businesses against “the tides of tomorrow.” The valuable education continued into the Breakout Sessions, where participants delved into the most relevant issues in investigations, technology & innovation, operational shrink, workplace safety, leadership & development, and audit & analytics. The Exhibit Hall bustled with action throughout the Exhibit Hall Preview hour and the Networking Reception.

First Data and MasterCard Partner to Advance Debit EMV in the U.S.
First Data and MasterCard today announced an agreement in which First Data’s STAR Network will participate in MasterCard’s common U.S. Debit EMV solution. This agreement, combined with other recent industry announcements, provides a cost-effective solution and accelerates the ability for EMV functionality to be implemented across the U.S. EMV/ chip cards better protect account information from fraud because they have dynamic data, rather than the static data stored in the magnetic stripe. By working together, MasterCard and First Data will deliver enhanced choices in how debit card issuers identify and apply multiple network relationships to ensure Regulation II compliance in a cost-effective way. Merchants and acquirers will continue to route transactions as they prefer, without costly host systems reprogramming. (Source

Study: Companies Upping Security Ante to Avoid Payment Fraud
In a survey of more than 5,000 of its members, the Association for Financial Professionals found that most companies are either increasing or considering increasing security measures to prevent payment fraud, a problem a number of trade groups are also trying to tackle. Sixty-three percent of organizations polled for the “2014 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey” reported they have either adopted or are planning to add new security measures, including secure signature stamps, electronic stamps, and storing payment data with third-party vendors. The study found that 60 percent of organizations were exposed to actual or attempted payment fraud last year. That’s down from 61 percent in 2012 and 68 percent in 2011. While checks were the most common form of payment targeted by perpetrators of fraud in 2013, fraudulent activity using credit and debit cards nearly doubled between 2012 and 2013. The National Retail Federation recently called for better payment card technology to provide added security measures after a Target data breach during last year’s holiday shopping season left the personal information of as many as 70 million people at risk.

Breakthrough GPS-Enabled Loss Prevention Device to be Unveiled at the RILA Conference

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – April 4, 2014 – After a secret four- month field test, Universal Surveillance Systems (USS) has announced the first-ever GPS-enabled loss prevention device that also incorporates RFID. The company will unveil the still-unnamed product at the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) conference, from April 6 to April 9, 2014, in Indianapolis, Ind., at booth 300.

“After our testing partner, a large retail chain, caught an organized retail crime group after just one week of using our prototype,” said Tony Oliver, USS’ Chief Technology Officer, “we knew we could not keep this product under wraps any longer. This is a game-changer for loss prevention.”

USS’ Oliver declined to provide technical details of the GPS-enabled product ahead of the RILA conference. The company’s president, Adel Sayegh, was blunt when asked about the same details: “Our retail partners who tested our GPS-enabled prototype asked us pointedly to not make product details known to the general public. Their fear is that this information could find its way to the thieves that our product is designed to catch.”

According to Sayegh, USS will share initial product information and field-testing results with the LP professionals at the RILA conference. Beyond that, the company plans to create a white-list of LP
professionals with whom full details will be shared, subject to a confidentiality agreement.

Paris Fashion District Robberies Turn Heads, and some can’t help smirking
Since the reign of France’s Sun King, the historic Place Vendôme has served as this city’s capital of luxury, home to high-end fashion boutiques and diamond shops, Coco Chanel’s mansion, and the palatial Hôtel Ritz Paris. Lately, though, this quarter snug in the heart of Paris has turned into the hub of a decidedly more low-rent form of plunder: smash-and-grab robberies. Common crime is an indiscreet topic among merchants in the Vendôme quarter of stone streets and graceful arcades. But many are clearly jittery from a wave of daytime robberies — three in the last three weeks — that have targeted ostentatious wealth in an otherwise weak economy, provoking more satire than sympathy. The culprits have mostly hit jewelry stores, and on Friday the police arrested two men in connection with one of the thefts who were tripped up by DNA left at the scene and by the ubiquitous video surveillance cameras.

2 Arrests Made In The Dollar General Robbery/ Assault in Waterford MI
Two suspects are under arrest for the robbery and beating of a clerk at a dollar store in Waterford Township. Both are charged with retail fraud and assault and battery. The female employee at the Dollar General store told police that she witnessed the two suspects putting store merchandise into a purse and then try to leave without paying. The employee took the purse from one of the suspects and they left the store – only to return a short time later demanding the purse because a cell phone was inside. There was a struggle and the suspects eventually left the store. (Source

Tucson Police make arrest in Walmart Shoplifting /Armed Robbery
Police have made arrests in connection with an armed robbery of a local Wal-mart that occurred earlier this year. Tucson Police says 46-year-old Lynn Hester Randall and 43-year-old Raquel Jemming are under arrest for an armed robbery of a Wal-mart that occurred January 4, 2014. Loss prevention staff approached Jemming after they watched her put items into her purse and walk out of the Wal-Mart. Jemming was walking with a Randall, who pulled out a knife when the Loss Prevention personnel approached the pair. Randall swung the knife at three employees while telling them not to touch Jemming. The two then got into a car and fled the area. (Source

Subway Restaurant workers chase down Robber in Cincinnati

The Subway workers followed and tackled the man after he left the store with cash after the robbery Sunday night. Police arrived and had to use a stun gun to subdue him. Police said the man was armed with a pellet gun that he used to rob the Subway two other times last month. He's also suspected of holding up a Little Caesars pizza place. (Source

Mason, MI Police seek female shop-lifting suspect; more than $632 in merchandise missing  A Mason retail store owner on March 25 reported the theft of $632.95 in merchandise. Security video revealed the suspect entered the premises and began picking up merchandise. She was seen stuffing it into a sleeve as she continued walking around, using one arm to lift and the other for stuffing loot. The suspect then went about stuffing additional merchandise into a large bag she carried. After she left premises, the items that were stuffed in the sleeve were found near an exit. (Source

Tips to thwart cargo theft; Air Cargo 2104 Conference   John Tabor, president of All States Locate, dared his audience at AirCargo 2014 in Orlando, Fla., to look at all the trucks driving on the road. Cargo theft is a problem because of the sheer availability of freight, Tabor said at the annual gathering of airfreight forwarders. “Everything touches a truck,” he said. “Every one of those is a target for thieves.” Tabor, who worked as director of corporate security at National Retails Systems for 15 years, advised to think of trucks, which air cargo eventually travels on, as mobile stores. “If you don’t invest in it, you’re going to end up getting burned,” Tabor said.

Agilence Announces New Automated Compliance Module for Retail 20/20

Enables automated notification of exception events
and provides workflow tools for compliance

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, April 8, 2014 – Agilence, Inc., the leader in cloud-based exception reporting solutions for retail, today announced the release of ACT, Automated Compliance Tool, for Retail 20/20. ACT enables retailers to define alert triggers based on individual events, summary data or KPIs and to create workflows for triaging and reporting on the subsequent alerts. ACT is a highly sophisticated yet intuitively simple application that automatically monitors incoming data for specific user defined exception events and provides automated notification and workflows for each alert. These alerts are coupled with supporting information and sent directly to store managers and other field personnel for investigation.

“ACT is a major step forward in the evolution of exception reporting,” said Derek M. Rodner, VP of Product Strategy, Agilence, Inc. “The solution delivers unprecedented results and our customers are already seeing significant improvements in efficiency with its automated notification and workflow management capabilities.”

Rules-Based Compliance Engine: ACT has a sophisticated rules engine that enables retailers to define complex monitors that include multiple data sets and vary the thresholds by region, district, risk class, store, etc., along with frequencies including: daily, weekly, and monthly

Automated notification: The new engine also enables email & SMS notifications to be sent to multiple roles and users based on severity so that users only need to react if exceptions are identified and assigned.

Workflows and Reporting: Each alert includes a specific action and recommended resolution. Tracking of alerts resolved and unresolved provides the basis for compliance management, enabling district managers and corporate-level users to monitor their direct reports and verify that alerts are being acknowledged and investigated.

Agilence will be demonstrating ACT live at day two of the RILA Asset Protection Conference April 7-9, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana. For more information on ACT, please email or call 856-366-1200.
