The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
Are you catching corporate fraud at your company? It happens more often than you think  Look around you. Whether you’re a CEO, entrepreneur, employee of a small business or a corporate conglomerate, statistics show someone in your office is committing fraud. Perhaps he or she is merely pilfering paper towels or medicine from the supply cabinet, but often the crime is far more severe. While only the more sensational cases of corporate or municipal fraud make national headlines hundreds of thousands of employees quietly and often brazenly pad their pockets across the nation. “Economic crime remains a fundamental fact of life for every segment of the global business community — and is a persistent threat to business,” according to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ 2014 Global Economic Crime Survey. During the past 14 years, nearly one in three business owners surveyed told PwC they’d suffered a “significant economic crime event.” Not only that, but executives or others in upper management commit 11.9 percent of reported fraud, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ 2012 Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, and 22 percent of corporate fraud is perpetrated by someone in an internal accounting department.

Owner of GLC / Tri State Closeouts pleads guilty to $22.9 Million Ponzi Scheme Crabtree sold investments in West Virginia-based retail liquidation company GLC Limited and promised high rates of return that didn’t materialize, federal regulators said. The pair raised about $80 million from nearly 100 investors, but only about $12 million of that was used to buy merchandise for liquidation, the SEC said. Federal prosecutors secured Crabtree's guilty plea and his possible testimony against business partner and former Marshall University football coach Jim Donnan. Donnan, who subsequently coached at University of Georgia and worked as a college football analyst, is set to stand trial May 6. (Source

The Jones Group Inc. and Sycamore Partners have received all requisite approvals required to complete the transaction. The companies are committed to a seamless transition and expect to close the transaction promptly. (Source

Building security around Bitcoin (before your company implements it)
Recent news reports have already indicated that as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin become more widely used, the risk of a cyber attack also increases. The latest string of stories revealing high-value digital heists of cryptocoins from exchanges, users and service providers has highlighted the ever-present skepticism of the currency's viability as well as its security. Merchants and service providers participating in the Bitcoin market need to establish trusting relationships with Bitcoin users equivalent to those of other money handling services and therefore, security must be made a top priority. Merchants should explore the security concerns intrinsic to their use of Bitcoin and closely examine how their platforms and choice in third-party services address those concerns. Currency exchange and hosted wallet services are particularly big targets because of their substantial balances stored in hot wallets and the use of automated transactions. A hot wallet is a storage system for cryptocoin keys that is connected to the internet and often uses complex configurations of addresses to facilitate quick transaction turnaround. (Source

Meijer tests next-generation automated checkout system  Meijer is testing an automated system that speeds up the checkout process at its store in Jenison, Mich. The system, from NCR, has a scanner made up of 17 cameras to scan barcodes on a product that has been placed on the conveyor belt. As shoppers place merchandise on a conveyor belt, the items are scanned and then sent to one of three collection areas, where customers bag them. Unlike other U-scan checkouts that let customers pay without any assistance, a cashier is stationed to manage the register and assist customers. (Source

As Omni-channel Gets Bigger, Store Sizes Get Smaller
While omni-channel retailing has changed the way shoppers find, buy, and receive the products they want, it is also changing the very foundation of big box stores. Evidence of these fundamental changes can be found in the recent trend of big stores getting smaller (at least in terms of physical space they occupy). In the coming year, the world’s leading retailer Walmart plans to open twice as many small-concept stores as it will supercenters. Target, meanwhile, is experimenting with mid-sized and smaller stores as well. (Source

Fast-Fashion Retailers Hurting Abercrombie, Aeropostale, American Eagle
Over the past year, Abercrombie & Fitch shares have tumbled 24%, Aeropostale 63% and American Eagle Outfitters 40%, not counting dividends. That compares with an 18% gain for the Standard & Poor's 500 index. There's more than just recent fashion misses and bad weather at work. All three stocks have lagged behind the market on 10-year returns, with or without dividends. Market saturation and declining mall traffic deserve some of the blame. However, the biggest problem is a merchandising shift called "fast-fashion." Specialty retailers have traditionally kept costs low and margins high by placing big orders for a relatively narrow assortment of garments each season. With that strategy, flops result in bloated inventory and clearance pricing. Fast-fashion chains take the opposite approach, stocking a broad assortment of garments while ordering small quantities of each. (Source

Checkpoint Systems unveils new RFID label for apparel
Checkpoint Systems, a global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has announced its new Zephyr 2 RFID label, which is certified by the University of Arkansas ARC Center for item-level tagging of all apparel categories in the U.S. and Europe. According to the company, the New Zephyr 2 RFID label design has an integrated UCODE 7 chip from NXP Semiconductors, and comes with optimal read/write sensitivity for accurate counting and quicker encoding. The company said pre-launch orders have already been placed for hundreds of thousands of these RFID labels to be used in pilot programs with a large European retailer this year. (Source

Patent Trolls Increasingly Target Retailers

The National Retail Federation today urged Congress to address an increasing threat to retailers: patent trolls. Patent trolls are shadowy entities that purchase overly-broad patents with the sole intent of suing retailers and other end-users of technology that allegedly infringe on those patents. “Trolls’ claims not only affect e-commerce applications and the everyday use of technology, but also...the storefront operations of traditional brick and mortar retailers,” NRF Senior Vice President David French said. “Some real world examples...cover point of sale and inventory control equipment, including; scanning barcodes, printing receipts, the sale of gift cards, and the connection of...a computer or printer to an Ethernet network.” (Source

Will Starbucks Alcohol "Infect" Other Products?
Starbucks continues to test alcohol sales in selected stores, and appears to be on the verge of rolling out beer and wine to more of its coffee shops. Their Starbucks Evenings concept adds selected adult beverages to an expanded food menu. The benefits to Starbucks are clear: if they can make this work, they will increase sales during times when coffee sales are slower and, almost certainly, raise their average sale at the same time. While there are a variety of logistical and practical concerns, including licensing requirements that vary by state, new staff training requirements, and possible customer resistance to a less family-friendly product lineup, there’s another potential issue: product contagion.

Walmart CEO says Asda will create up to 12,000 UK jobs in next five years  Walmart has revealed plans to create up to 12,000 jobs at Asda over the next five years. The announcement came as Walmart chief executive Doug McMillon met with Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday at an Asda supermarket in London’s Clapham Junction. McMillon, who recently took on the role of Walmart president and chief executive, was in the UK for Walmart’s first ever board meeting to be held in the country. (Source

Card skimming at European ATMs reaches 6-year low, according to report
The European ATM Security Team (EAST) has reported another fall in ATM related card skimming incidents, while card trapping incidents and ATM explosive attacks continue to rise. EAST has reported a 5% decrease in ATM related fraud attacks, down from 22,450 to 21,346 in 2013. 5,822 card skimming incidents were reported, down by 19% from the 7,184 incidents reported in 2012. Skimming incidents have now fallen for three successive years and are down 45% from the high of 10,497 incidents reported in 2008. EAST Director and Coordinator Lachlan Gunn said, "This continued fall in ATM related skimming incidents and losses is very good news for the industry and our customers, and highlights the effectiveness of EMV, regional card blocking and fraud monitoring and detection."

Millions of consumers at risk from mobile POS flaws
MPOS is an emerging technology that enables retailers to process card payments using mobile phones or tablets, instead of traditional cash registers and point-of-sale terminals. It is currently used in Apple Stores and mainly small retailers. But at Singapore's SyScan security conference on 4 April, two MWR InfoSecurity researchers showed how MPOS terminals can be comprised via multiple attack techniques using micro USBs, Bluetooth and a malicious programmable smartcard. The researchers – Jon Butler, head of research at MWR, and a security researcher who prefers to be known as ‘Nils' – displayed how an attacker could gain full control of the MPOS terminal, allowing them to display ‘try again' messages, switch the device into insecure mode, capture PIN and credit card data, and even enable the device to accept illegitimate payments from stolen credit cards.

Food and drink industry top target for cyber attacks
In recent years businesses worldwide have seen a sharp rise in the number of cyber attacks. With significant advancements in technology in the food and drink sector, these businesses in particular are increasingly at risk. What? Recent and rapid developments in technology are revolutionizing the food and drink sector, such that the application of technology is now fundamental to the success or failure of businesses. However, with these technological advancements come the increased risk of fraud and cyber attacks. The 2013 Global Security report indicated that 24% of all data breaches occurred in the food and beverage industry which, along with the retail sector, continues to be the top target for cyber attacks. Standardization of computer systems is common across these sectors and, in the event that a security deficiency exists within a specific system, it can easily be duplicated across the entire network, leaving these industries more susceptible to attacks.

Vendor Spotlight

The Situation

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires the ability to authenticate and identify access to systems containing confidential and secure payment information.

This identification of access to secure systems includes retail store servers where the information is
maintained. Retailers can either choose to implement an access control system or monitor the server
room with video equipment. The video requirement includes a minimum of 90 days of storage.

The Challenge

A Fortune 500 national retailer needed its 1,500 locations PCI Compliant within 90 days.

Since access control would be an entirely new venture for its stores, this retailer decided to select
the video option since there was a current infrastructure in place. However, the current infrastructure
couldn’t support the 90-day requirement necessary without an enormous investment to upgrade each
DVR in operation.

Ultimately, the retailer needed a recording solution that:

Captured and recorded 90 days of video
Functioned in low light and complete darkness
Could easily plug into their network
Functioned both as a camera as well as a recording device

The Checkview Solution

Checkview worked with its leading industry partners to source both the hardware and software that
the retailer needed for a cost-effective solution meeting the necessary PCI DDS requirements as well
as its internal network needs.

Checkview was able to install this solution in 1,500 locations in 90 days thereby achieving 100% PCI

“The project details from camera programming, scheduling and coordination of installation was a
massive undertaking that Checkview handled with ease,”
said the Director of Loss Prevention
Operations for this retailer with over 600 million shoppers annually.

Checkview efficiently and methodically executed this roll out through its certified and thoroughly
trained Field Service team.

“I don’t know what we would have done without Checkview,” said the Director. “Checkview came to
the table with several viable solutions. Once we selected one and decided to implement, Checkview
managed every detail of the process. They truly are a valuable member of my asset protection team.”

It always boils down to the people – the team. No matter how sophisticated we become or how fast and efficient our systems are, it's always the people that make it work or not work for that matter. So many hide so much behind the technology that I wonder if we the people are losing ground at times. It's easy to sit back, get work done, shuffle our emails and feel like we accomplished a lot. But at the end of the day have we really?
