Fog Cannons & SmartWater Spray
UK retailer Co-op invests $90M in LP tech to fight crimewave

Following a series of raids across the region in which staff have been threatened by gangs who steal cash or high-value goods like cigarettes and alcohol, the Co-operative Group Limited has announced plans to pump more than £70m ($90.3M USD) into the fight against crime.

The company is investing millions in new forensic liquid technology and is joining other retailers in helping Telford based security firm SmartWater to develop a fog cannon. The cannon will also be aimed at protecting tobacco and alcohol counters from attacks as well as staff. It makes it impossible for raiders to see anything and leaves them covered in SmartWater that can link them to the crime scene.

Meanwhile, a special gel is being installed inside cash machines to leave marks on thieves in a bid to ensure they are successfully prosecuted at court when caught.

Some of the money is being spent on state-of-the-art interactive and remote monitored CCTV, covert trackers and other methods to deter and disrupt criminal activity. expressandstar.com

UK hit by more than 1,000 shoplifting incidents every day, police data shows
The UK retail industry suffered from an average of 1,035 reported incidents of shoplifting every dayin 2018, according to the latest analysis of UK police data by leading loss prevention solutions provider Checkpoint Systems.

The latest crime statistics reveal that retailers reported 377,850 incidents in 2018, with no suspect identified in 42% of cases. And at a time when physical stores are experiencing closures as result of poor financial performance, there is a clear requirement to reduce retail crime.

However, in more positive news for retailers, December 2018 marked the lowest 'Christmas shoplifting' figures in the last three years, with 897 fewer incidents than the previous year. It demonstrates that stores have become effective at protecting their merchandise during this busy sales period.

A surge of shoplifting in 2018: While the total number of incidents fell compared to the previous year (-2.9%), many regions reported double digit increases to the number of recorded incidents. The City of London police force saw a 20% increase in shoplifting compared to last year, while the north east of England was the worst hit in 2018, with Cleveland Police and Durham Constabulary reporting increases of 16% and 14% respectively. The Metropolitan Police continued to handle the largest number of shoplifting reports - 44,090 over the course of 12 months. retailtimes.co.uk

Facial recognition tech used to target in-store ads called creepy
Cameras that guess shoppers' age and sex are coming to store shelves

Eyeing that can of soda in the supermarket cooler? Or maybe you're craving a pint of ice cream? A camera could be watching you. But it's not there to see if you're stealing. These cameras want to get to know you and what you're buying.

It's a new technology being trotted out to retailers, where cameras try to guess your age, gender or mood as you walk by. The intent is to use the information to show you targeted real-time ads on in-store video screens.

With store cameras, you may not even realize you are being watched unless you happen to notice the penny-sized lenses. And that has raised concerns over privacy. "The creepy factor here is definitely a 10 out of 10," said Pam Dixon, executive director of the World Privacy Forum, a nonprofit that researches privacy issues.

At the National Retail Federation trade show in New York earlier this year, a smart shelf on display by Mood Media tried to detect "happiness" or "fear" as people stood in front it - information a store could use to gauge reaction to a product on the shelf or an ad on a screen.

For now, the cameras are in just a handful of stores.

Kroger, which has 2,800 supermarkets, is testing cameras embedded in a price sign above shelves in two stores in the suburbs outside Cincinnati and Seattle. Video screens attached to the shelves can play ads and show discounts. Kroger said the cameras guess a shopper's age and sex but the information is anonymous and the data is not being stored. If the tests work out well, the company said it could expand it into other locations.

Walgreens, which has more than 8,000 drugstores, installed cooler doors with cameras and sensors at six locations in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Bellevue, Washington. Instead of the usual clear glass doors that allow customers to see inside, there are video screens that display ads along with the cooler's contents. retailwire.com bangordailynews.com

Academics hide humans from surveillance cameras with 2D prints
Academics from a Belgian university have devised a method that uses a simple 2D image that can be printed on shirts or bags to make wearers invisible to camera surveillance systems that rely on machine learning to recognize humans in live video feeds.

The 2D image (called a "patch" in the research paper) must be placed around the middle of a person's "detection box" and must face the surveillance camera at all times.

This does not hide a person's real face from the video feed (unless the person also wears a mask), but it prevents any human detection algorithm from spotting a human body when entering the frame and triggering a subsequent facial recognition check. zdnet.com

Nevada: SB431 Passes in Senate 19 to 1; Revises provisions relating to participation in Organized Retail Theft
This bill provides that the crime of organized retail theft may be committed by one or more persons who participate directly or indirectly in or engage in conduct in furtherance of the organized retail theft.

This bill also revises the period of time, from 90 days to 180 days, for which the value of the property or services involved in the organized retail theft may be aggregated for purposes of determining the criminal penalty. leg.state.nv.us

Trucking company Celadon ordered to pay $42M after admitting securities fraud
President of subsidiary company reaches plea deal on conspiracy charge

Indianapolis-based trucking company Celadon Group Inc. has agreed to pay $42.2 million in restitution to settle securities fraud charges announced Thursday by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Under the settlement, the company admitted to "filing materially false and misleading statements to investors and falsifying books, records and accounts," federal prosecutors said. The restitution will go to "shareholder victims," according to the agreement.

In addition, Danny Williams, former president of Quality Cos. - a Celadon subsidiary that owned trucks and leased them to drivers - reached a plea agreement with prosecutors after being charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, making false statements to a public company's accountants, and falsifying books, records and accounts of a public company. ibj.com

Chipotle receives subpoena related to Ohio illness incident
Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc said on Thursday it received another subpoena from U.S. federal prosecutors, seeking information related to an outbreak that left hundreds of people sick last year in a Powell, Ohio restaurant.

Over the past three years, the company has faced a number of subpoenas regarding sicknesses linked to its restaurants following an E. Coli, salmonella and norovirus outbreaks at the company's outlets dating back to late 2015 that affected hundreds across several states.

The latest subpoena is the fourth and is part of an ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of California. reuters.com

Walmart to Develop Its Own Supply Chain for Angus Beef
The Arkansas-based chain will develop a network of cattle ranches and meat-processing plants to provide Angus beef products exclusively for its stores, a move Walmart said will provide the company and its customers better visibility into their food supply.

All the News - One Place - One Source - One Time
The D&D Daily respects your time & doesn't filter retail's reality





As a savvy LP professional, you probably already have best practices in place. But did you know that there are other security solutions you can leverage?

To help you explore additional options, we want to share an informative whitepaper, "Three Essential Trends in Loss Prevention." This piece highlights advanced security measures that can reduce or eliminate the significant causes of shrink.





Bodybuilding.com Breach A Reminder That An Organization's
Biggest Cyber Risk Is Its People

Last week news emerged that leading fitness forum and retailer Bodybuilding.com had experienced a security breach. In a statement on its website, the company said the incident "may have affected certain customer information in our possession" but could not confirm whether any data was actually stolen. For its 9 million-plus registered members, this is concerning news indeed.

After discovering the breach, Bodybuilding.com hired an external security firm to help identify the source, which was traced back to a phishing email targeting staff in July 2018. It may be that just one of the company's 450 employees fell for the attack - but this is all it takes for a threat actor to muscle in. And the cost will already be high, with time and money spent on bolstering defences, handling customers and cooperating with law enforcement.

The breach is a reminder that organizations will always be vulnerable if their non-technical employees lack cyber awareness - no matter how good their security team is. Just as muscular imbalance can lead to injury in bodybuilders, cyber-ignorance can weaken an organization's risk posture. And considering the average data breach costs $3.86 million (as per IBM), providing effective training is the only financially viable option. forbes.com

Survey Shows a Security Conundrum
A new survey illustrates how security executives are forced to embrace conundrums, conflicts, and confusion, in their jobs. The report, from Glasswall Solutions, based on interviews with senior-level security executives in the US and UK, found that 85% rely heavily on employees as part of their defense and 40% consider employees are the sole "last line of defense" for the company - but 40% say employees are a significant source of vulnerabilities. darkreading.com

Shopify Flaw Exposed Thousands of Merchants' Revenue, Traffic Numbers
A security flaw in a Shopify API endpoint has been discovered by a researcher which can be exploited to leak the revenue and traffic data of thousands of stores. Shopify, which accounts for over 800,000 merchants in more than 175 countries, set up a new API over the past year, which gained the interest of bug bounty hunter Ayoub Fathi. This API was meant to be used to internally fetch sales data for graph presentations, but the system was found to be leaking the revenue data of two unnamed Shopify stores, one of which had been removed from the platform. zdnet.com

Supreme Court hears arguments in SNAP retail data case
A decision is expected by the end of June in the fight over Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program retail data. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case April 22, according to Politico. The issue originated as a public records request nearly eight years ago.

The Argus Leader, the Sioux Falls, S.D., newspaper that first sought the information in 2011, asserts the public has a right to know which companies are receiving reimbursement from the federal program. Organizations including the Food Marketing Institute and the National Grocers Association say the information's release would be detrimental to stores. produceretailer.com

Sen. Warren, Amazon Escalate Feud Over Retailer's Data Use
Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Amazon have gotten into a Twitter scuffle, with the online merchandiser swiping back at suggestions by the Democratic presidential contender that the company exploits troves of data on third-party sellers to edge them out of the market.

Warren, D-Mass., said that Amazon abuses its online retail dominance in a town hall on CNN Monday, later tweeting that her antitrust policy plank to disrupt "big tech" would keep corporations like Amazon from "knocking out the rest of the competition" by using the retail data collected through its own platform to launch products. law360.com

The True Cost of Declined Orders
A recent survey on global fraud shows that merchants decline 2.6 percent of all e-commerce orders due to suspected fraud. For orders worth over $100, the rate of transactions declined over fear of fraud is 3.1 percent. For a retailer selling $25 million online annually, this means rejecting orders worth more than $600,000 every year. But the true cost of declines is actually far higher than just the lost sales revenue.

To understand the full cost of declines, one must consider all the factors involved in a holistic risk management approach, including the sales and marketing investment that goes to waste when a good order is declined. Whether online media, SEM, or social media campaigns, e-commerce companies invest considerable funds and energy in customer acquisition and retention-bringing users to the website, bringing them to checkout, and trying to ensure they become repeat customers. cardnotpresent.com

The fastest-growing e-commerce retailer in North America is...
A bed-in-a-box company that offers consumers a one-year "try out" trial period takes top honors when it comes to year-over-year growth in an annual report of online retailers. Nectar was recognized as the fastest-growing e-commerce retailer in North America, according to the 2019 "Internet Retailer's 2019 Top 1000 Report." Nectar's sales surged 525% in 2019.

Rounding out the top five:
Hibbett Sports, whose online sales rose 175%; Brandless, up 150%; Hubble, up 145%; and La-Z Boy, up 131%.

Brea, CA: 4 arrested after Apple store theft, suspects rammed Police cars during pursuit
Tuesday night, Just before 8:45 p.m., police were called about several males stealing cellphones on display. The suspects ran off, got into a car and fled the mall's parking lot. But officers and detectives spotting the fleeing car and tried to pull it over - instead, the vehicle intentionally struck a police vehicle and sped off, police said. Police chased after the car to near Lambert Road and 57 Freeway, with the driver intentionally colliding with police vehicles two more times before a police officer rammed the suspects' car back, disabling it, authorities said.

After searching with canines and a helicopter, four suspects were taken into custody, and officers found cellphones. "It was thousands of dollars worth," Hawley said.

Passion is probably the one trait all employers look for in every search and in every candidate. It's also the one ingredient that's hard to manufacture and almost impossible to fake. Certainly, energy level has a lot to do with it and virtually everyone can pick it up a notch when they need to. But passion is something that's deep and something money can't buy and quite frankly it's worth it's weight in gold because passion motivates people and it's what separates the good from the great. If you've got passion, let it show and, if you don't, try to go find it because every employer wants it.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
