Insurance Brokers deny coverage for $850K theft because of no working security alarm & wrong HQ address
A New Jersey-based sports memorabilia company on Thursday slapped a trio of insurers with claims of negligence, breach of contract and bad faith after the group declined coverage of nearly $850,000 in stolen inventory from the company's warehouse late last year.

MeiGray Group LLC, which deals in signed sports merchandise, alleges that insurance broker HUB International Northeast Ltd., along with Berkley Asset Protection Underwriting Managers LLC and StarNet Insurance Co., were wrong to deny coverage on the grounds that the memorabilia company allegedly failed to update the address of its Branchburg, New Jersey, headquarters, which was robbed in late December, or to have a working security alarm in place at the time of the theft.

An investigation of the incident revealed that the thieves had scouted the place earlier that day, which means they would have noticed that an alarm system was in place, which explains the snatch-and-grab nature of the theft, though the system wasn't functioning at the time because of the recent move, the company wrote.  law360.com

New Federal legislation cements OSHA worker safety program
The Voluntary Protection Program Act - which was sponsored by Enzi and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) - would codify a successful program operated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to encourage employers to incorporate voluntary programs to improve the health and safety of their work sites. The program reduces OSHA inspection burdens on workplaces that have a proven commitment to safety and a record of compliance with standards. Participating worksites must implement safety and health management programs, and maintain below-average injury and illness. Since the VPPA was created in 1982, it has grown to incorporate more than 2,200 worksites. oshatoday.com
The Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund Raises $4,000 for Families of Fallen AP Professionals at RILA Conference

Avery Dennison Initiative Aims to Give 10 Billion Products Digital IDs
The Biggest Push For IoT Products Ever

Avery Dennison Retail Branding and Information Solutions has teamed with Evrytng (an "Internet of Things" or "IoT" smart products platform provider) to offer fashion apparel, activewear and footwear brands such as the Janela Smart Products Platform.

The platform allows brands to embed "unique digital identities and data profiles" into its products. The venture aims to enable 10 billion products with the cloud-based identities, which have various application opportunities in the IoT space. The companies said they believed this to be the "largest number of IoT-connected products in a single deal ever." The companies said as the growth of smartphones continues, "consumers expect to interact with brands through digital means" and the launch of Janela platform "enables the apparel and footwear industry to take this to a whole new level."

Avery Dennison said that Evrytng's platform allows its customers to digitalize their products - at the "point of manufacturing."

"Once connected to the Web in this way, products can interact with smartphones to trigger applications and services that connect more intelligently with consumers," the companies said in a statement. "Brands will become more interactive, providing personalized, real-time mobile experiences and content for each individual consumer and each item of clothing. Products will also become smarter, using real-time data analytics to tackle problems like product authentication for better brand protection and increased efficiency in supply chains.

The ways in which brands can leverage the technology is varied and comprehensive. For example, companies can use it to mitigate counterfeits. Other applications includes loss prevention and personalization uses as well as helping consumers "upcycle" products for sustainability purposes. wwd.com

MasterCard, Visa Try to Speed Chip Transactions After Complaints
Following complaints from retailers, MasterCard Inc. and Visa Inc. have introduced software that they say will speed up slow check-out times for shoppers with new chip-based cards.

With the new software, the checkout experience for owners of the security-enhanced chip cards should come closer to those with the old magnetic stripes, the companies say. Consumers will be able to dip and remove their cards, instead of leaving them in payment terminals to complete purchases. bloomberg.com

E-retailers cut their fraud rate, but turn away more good customers
Low-tech online fraud detection remains popular

Online retailers are losing a lower percentage of their sales to fraud, but paying a price in turning away more legitimate customers and manually reviewing more orders.

A survey of 307 U.S. and Canadian companies found that fraud cost retailers an average of 0.8% of online sales in 2015, versus 0.9% in 2013.

 The fraud rate on domestic online orders was 0.7% in 2015, versus 0.8% in 2013. The big decrease was in fraud from international orders, which declined to 0.9% in 2015 from 1.6% in 2012, after holding steady at around 2% from 2009 to 2011, CyberSource said in the report entitled, "Annual Fraud Benchmark Report: A Balancing Act."

One way web merchants are reducing fraud is by rejecting more orders: That rejection rate increased to 2.8% of orders in 2015 from 2.3% in 2013. E-retailers fear many rejections are "false positives"-transactions that look fraudulent but aren't. "The majority (70%) of survey respondents who track false positives believe that up to 10% of the orders they reject on suspicion of fraud are actually genuine," the report says.

Another way e-retailers minimize fraud is to manually review suspicious orders, and the manual review rate ticked up to 29% of orders in 2015 from 27% in 2013. Larger retailers, which are more likely to have the resources to deploy sophisticated fraud-prevention tools, manually review the fewest orders: the manual review rate was only 8% for retailers reporting $100 million or more in annual online revenue, increasing to 18% for retailers with $25-100 million in web sales, 29% for those in the $5-25 million range and 41% for those with under $5 million in annual web revenue.

"According to our survey, businesses accepted 82% of orders following manual review-an indicator that more orders are being reviewed than is strictly necessary," the CyberSource report says.

In addition, fraud management budgets are essentially flat. The majority of respondents (61%) expect their budgets for fraud management operations to stay the same over the coming 12 months, and 7% even expect them to decline.

The rate of disputed online chargebacks has remained level at 53%. In one other good piece of chargeback-related news, the percentage of disputes retailers win has slightly risen to 43% from 41% in 2013. internetretailer.com chainstoreage.com
