"C-level" executives more involved and up to date on cybersecurity then ever
before & less confident that cybersecurity briefings adequately convey the
urgency and intensity of the cyber-threats targeting their organizations They
were even less confident than IT executives (78% respectively) in the accuracy
of the tools their organization uses to present cybersecurity risks to the
board. The lack of confidence also comes, in large part, from the networking
and informal benchmarking that takes place among C-level executives at the peer
level. "The good news is that this study signals that conversations are
beginning to happen at all levels of the organization. This is a critical step
in changing the culture of business to better manage the ongoing and rapid
changes in cybersecurity risks. Editor's Note: Just like every other

Sally Beauty Investigating Major Data Breach - 2nd one since March 2014
For the second time in a year, nationwide beauty products chain Sally Beauty
Holdings Inc. says it is investigating reports of unusual credit and debit card
activity at some of its U.S. stores. Last week, KrebsOnSecurity began hearing
from multiple financial institutions about a pattern of fraudulent charges on
cards that were all recently used at Sally Beauty locations in various states.
The Texas-based retailer said it has been working with law enforcement and its
credit-card processor but until the investigation is complete, "it is difficult
to determine with certainty the scope or nature of any potential incident."
On March 17, 2014, Sally Beauty officially confirmed a breach of its
network, but said its investigation determined that fewer than 25,000 card
accounts were removed from its network. Nevertheless, a subsequent, exhaustive
analysis of the Sally Beauty store ZIP codes listed in the cards for sale on
Rescator's site indicated that the 2014 breach impacted virtually all 2,600+
Sally Beauty locations nationwide.
Harbortouch is Latest POS Vendor Breach - 4,200 stores potentially impacted
Last week, Allentown, Pa. based point-of-sale (POS) maker Harbortouch disclosed
that a breach involving "a small number" of its restaurant and bar customers
were impacted by malicious software that allowed thieves to siphon customer card
data from affected merchants. However, according to sources at a top 10
card-issuing bank here in the United States that shared voluminous fraud data
with KrebsOnSecurity on condition of anonymity, the breach extends to at least
4,200 stores that run Harbortouch's point-of-sale software.

What's your distinctive 'take' on the LP landscape? Loss prevention has
always been a key issue within the retail industry, however today it's becoming
even more important; namely due to the fast growth of organized retail crime,
alongside the introduction of new product offerings, especially electronic
products with higher value than traditional merchandise. Both will present
retailers with new risks for the store environment.
What will be the biggest changes in the next three years? The retail
industry is moving rapidly and with an ever-increasing number of new electronic
products and services being introduced to the market, with high value and risk,
one of the biggest challenges retailers will face will be to be able to control
both internal and external frauds and thefts. As retailers we will need to
collaborate with merchandising teams to design new software products with a loss
prevention perspective to combat this issue. It's very common for loss
prevention teams to know that there is a risky item when it is already in the
market, so we need to be preventative in our methods and adapt to these industry
changes promptly, so that we are not just fixing problems, but stopping them
from happening in the first place.
What trends do you see right now? The increased use of electronic tools
and software to help retailers and organizations protect against risk is a key
topic within the industry and is helping everyone to become more aware of loss
prevention issues within a company; from CCTV analysis through to analysis of
information and cash management. We are now seeing a trend towards entire
companies becoming supportive of their organizations in the fight against fraud,
rather than just one specific area holding this responsibility.
New operational structure takes shape at Walmart - AP now reports to Senior Vice
President "Central Operations" Operational changes keep coming at
Walmart with another round of senior executive moves - and several retirements -
announced late Friday that involve some familiar leaders in new roles focused on
supercenters, small format and the rollout of grocery home shopping. It
includes an expanded role for Walmart U.S. Senior Vice President of Innovations
Mark Ibbotson. He retains his SVP title in the innovations organization now
named "Central Operations." Among his various responsibilities, with many
different departments reporting to him, Ibbotson has been given new
responsibilities for asset protection and work with Walmart Global eCommerce
to implement grocery home shopping within operations. This move shifts the
reporting structure for Wal-Mart's Asset Protection leadership. Mike Lamb, Vice
President, Asset Protection & Safety, Walmart U.S. - who previously reported to
COO Judith McKenna - now reports to SVP of Central Operations Ibbotson.
In the operations area, Walmart previously employed a conventional approach,
dividing the U.S. into five large regions, later three regions and last year the
company divided the nation in half. The changes represent a fresh approach
to operations as Walmart appears intent on flattening its operation's
organizational structure to put senior leadership in tighter contact with the
field. A similar approach has been applied in the merchandising area, where four
EVPs of merchandising report directly to Foran. Editor's Note: This comes
on top of the U.S. stores eliminating the multi-department Zone manager
positions in the stores and going to individual department managers - and the
minimum wage increase nationwide. So indeed they are flattening the
Aligning Internal Audit with Corporate Strategy
Changing market forces are creating challenges and opportunities for business
and for the Internal Audit function. As companies evolve and transform, senior
management and boards are looking for Internal Audit functions to be actively
involved in business imperatives and offer proactive perspectives on all
business risks. In order for Internal Audit to transition to a more proactive
"trusted advisor" role, the function must be fully aligned with the strategic
direction of the business. This is the key conclusion of PwC's recently released
2015 State of the Internal Audit Profession study.
In Support of "User's" Conferences - 'Companies must teach employees to swim in
oceans of data' At virtually every level of the organization, staffers
are being asked to cope with and find meaning in more data than ever before.
That's causing a significant shift in the skills required to get the job-any
job-done. "Today's workforce needs to be more data-savvy. Not everyone needs to
be a data scientist, but nearly everyone will need to learn to utilize the data
to make more data-driven decisions." The tougher challenge may well be finding
the best way to educate the rest of the staff, from shop-floor supervisors and
call-center operators all the way up to those in the executive suite. Regardless
of their role, Camm said, the fundamental question is: What data analysis skills
does that person need to do his or her job better? Editor's Note: With
virtually all software providers in the retail community offering "users"
conferences it's critical that we consider broadening the scope of
individuals that attend these conferences beyond today's end user and
include other team members. Thus increasing the capabilities and impact of
the individual, the software, and the organization. Just a thought.
Lowe's proposed $4.5M collective action settlement over 'improperly cuts human
resource managers out of overtime pay" nixed by Judge A New York
federal judge on Friday rejected a proposed $4.5 million settlement to end
collective action allegations that Lowe's Cos. Inc. improperly cuts human
resources managers out of overtime pay, saying that the plaintiffs'
attorneys' fee bid showed "chutzpah," but that the overall deal wasn't fair.
U.S. District Judge Jeremiah J. McCarthy denied motions to approve a $3 million
fund for the class and $1.5 million in attorneys' fees, finding that statements
in the settlement filings contradicted the operative complaint. law360.com
Another law suit at American Apparel - with fired founder & former CEO leading a
march of workers Friday to city hall - what an LP nightmare Other than
Lumber Liquidators current legal issues, American Apparel has to be the most
active retailer in North America involved in law suits. In fact, the ousted ceo
and founder of Los Angeles-based American Apparel, stood outside the clothing
company's factory and offices in downtown Friday afternoon where workers began
gathering around noon for a march to city hall. The agenda was two-fold:
immigration reform along with a public shaming of New York hedge fund Standard
General. Many in the crowd wore T-shirts printed-on American Apparel blanks-with
"Save our company!" Standard General not only struck a deal with Charney to loan
him money to buy shares of American Apparel from Standard General but also later
loaned money to the company that led to a reconstitution of the board. A series
of twists and turns followed, but Charney was ultimately fired late last year at
which time Paula Schneider was named to lead the company. A lawsuit filed by a
company shareholder this week in the Delaware Court of Chancery alleges Standard
General is now holding the company captive.
Louis Vuitton Gains Injunction Against Fla. Flea Market
A Florida federal judge on Thursday entered an injunction against a large Fort

French luxury goods maker is one of several that companies have brought in

200 business destroyed - Hundreds of Millions of dollars lost - Baltimore
Bounces Back and so does Mondawmin Mall - National Guard gets orders to withdraw
Things could be returning to normal in Baltimore: The city has lifted its
curfew, the National Guard is preparing its exit and a mall that had been a
flashpoint in the riots has been reopened. The "goal," said Mayor Stephanie
Rawlings-Blake "has always been to not have the curfew in place a single day
longer than was necessary." The mayor spoke following a tour of Mondawmin Mall,
which reopened Sunday after recovering from rioting that police said was spawned
by social media rumors of a "purge" following Freddie Gray's death. Because of
the improving conditions in the city, she said, the National Guard will be
wrapping up its operations, but don't expect the troops to leave immediately.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, speaking at a separate news conference Sunday, said
it "will take a couple days, maybe about 72 hours" to complete the drawdown, at
which point the state of emergency can be lifted. Since April 23, police made
486 arrests at protests, rallies and other gatherings related to Gray's
death, police spokesman Capt. J. Eric Kowalczyk said Sunday. Since last
Saturday, 113 police officers have been injured. Forty-six people were
arrested Saturday night, four of them juveniles, he said. Two hundred
Baltimore businesses -- many of them minority-owned and many lacking insurance
-- were lost in the April 27 protests alone -- the worst night of protests.
It "will take a little while to get back to normal," Hogan said, "but let's get
people back to normal, get people back in the city to visit devastated shops."
The majority of stores inside Mondawmin reopened Sunday, Rawlings-Blake said,
declaring it "a great day for this community." For more coverage on the
Baltimore riots' impact on retailers,

march through Cumberland Mall in metro Atlanta Groups of protesters
gathered in metro Atlanta over the weekend in response to the death of Freddie
Gray in Baltimore. Close to 50 members of #Itsbiggerthanyou met at Jonquil Park
in Smyrna on Sunday afternoon, hoping to not only highlight Gray's case, which
sparked riots in protest last week, but those of other black men who have died
at the hands of police. "Everyone around the nation, this is a weekend of
resistance in solidarity with Baltimore," said Aurielle Marie Lucier, co-founder
of the group. "As an organization, we stand with all the protesters in
Baltimore." On Saturday, a small group of protesters with Rise Up Georgia held a
memorial service in Atlanta to call attention to deaths in Georgia in which
protesters believe excessive police force was used.

Like Never Before:
California's Prosecutors Strike Gold In Retailers' Dumpsters & NY Prosecutors
dumpster diving next year! What's in your trash? In recent years,
California prosecutors have accelerated enforcement actions against California
retailers who are alleged to have improperly discarded seemingly benign retail
items that may nevertheless classify as "hazardous waste" under federal or state
law. The California Attorney General's Office and local district attorneys -
who can use the proceeds from multimillion-dollar settlements to fund their
internal operations - have settled with a number of big-box retailers that
operate in-state facilities. These retailers include home improvement stores,
pharmacies, supermarkets, warehouse stores and even a cable provider. Pursuant
to these public settlements, California retailers have been forced to
overhaul their hazardous waste management practices and pay the government tens
of millions in civil penalties.

Fraud prevention gaining upper hand in payments business
The global payments business is clearly gaining an upper hand over fraud and
data breaches, thanks to the new technologies and constant efforts of all
stakeholders in the industry, Ellen Richey, Vice-Chairman of risk and public
policy for Visa Inc told Gulf News in an interview. The industry-wide
developments such as the migration to chip based EMV [Europay, MasterCard, and
Visa] standards and tokenization are revolutionising the payment security across
the world with the US currently lagging in the chip-based cards. Richey expects
2015 to be a turning point in EMV migration with more than 50 per cent of cards
and terminals in the US to be chip-enabled by the end of the year. "Fraud is
something that we can't say will be eliminated completely. But efforts by all
stakeholders in the industry can contain it to the minimum. Visa's efforts are
focused on working close with all our partners, law enforcement and government
agencies throughout the world to better deter criminals," Richey said.

Operation Update: Four more former employees arrested in Lebanon pawn shop
fencing operation Friday - JT's Buy & Sell pawn shop First reported in
the Daily on April 2, the police have continued their investigation and arrested
four more employees selling stolen merchandise. Investigators alleged that Jones
and his employees bought and sold property that others had stolen from area
retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Kmart. The sales totaled hundreds of
thousands of dollars, District Attorney David Arnold said at the time. ldnews.com
Operation Update: Lebanon pawn shop owner also faces new charge - running
illegal pawn shop - $90,000 recovered Larry Ardell Jones, 51, was
charged with a violation of the Pawnbrokers License Act after numerous people
told authorities they left items of property with his store, JT's Buy and Sell,
in exchange for short term loans, Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold
said in a news release. The people claimed they had to repay the loan by a
certain day or they would forfeit their rights to their property. Arnold said
the allegations meet the definition of pawning, which requires a license from
the Pennsylvania Department of Banking that Jones did not have. Jones was
additionally charged with prohibited offensive weapons after authorities said
they found three shotguns with barrels lengths less than 18 inches during a
search of his home on March 31. Jones initially was charged April 2 after
authorities said he paid shoplifters for the products they stole from national
retailers, then sold the items online and at his store. Arnold said police
seized more than $70,000 in suspected stolen goods at JT's Buy and Sell and
another $20,000 worth from a warehouse on Federal Street during an investigation
that began in January 2014.
member California skimming gang busted using cloned credit cards at Fred Meyer
in Vancouver, WA The investigation showed that that the counterfeit
debit cards were used to purchase expensive electronics, clothing, and gift
cards from cities from Medford, Oregon to Vancouver, Washington. The loss in
these cases was over $8,400.00. Surveillance photos showed multiple Hispanic
males and a female committing these crimes. Those photos were forwarded to
retail outlets throughout the region. On April 21, a loss prevention officer
at Fred Meyer in Vancouver, Washington recognized three suspects who matched
the description of the suspects and was able to get a photo of the suspects and
their van with California license plates. The suspect and vehicle information
were forwarded to law enforcement agencies in the area. On April 22, Beaverton
Police Detective Jason Buelt located the suspects in a hotel in Beaverton and
followed them when they left, eventually taking them into custody and seizing
large boxes that they were attempting to mail. Subsequent search warrants served
on the hotel room, vehicle and the boxes that the suspects were mailing yielded
over 100 fraudulent credit/debit cards, multiple items of high end electronics,
new articles of brand name clothing, gift cards, nearly $3,500 in currency and a
Louis Vuitton handbag valued at over $3,000. Said Detective Korcek, "These
suspects were very prolific in their activities and were able to steal thousands
of dollars worth of goods, services and gift cards. They were very sophisticated
in their actions and showed how much damage they can do in a short period of
time. The scheme first came to the attention of the Salem Police Department on
April 9, 2015 when representatives of the Maps Credit Union and Pioneer Trust
Bank in Salem reported fraudulent transactions that involved counterfeit debit
cards for several of their customers. Columbia Bank also reported similar
activity on the following week with some of their customers.

One man dead after foiled carjacking at a store in Orem, UT
A shopper with a concealed weapons permit shot and killed a man who was trying
to carjack a woman Saturday outside a Utah grocery store, officers said. The
31-year-old male shooter was in Macey's parking lot in Orem, 45 miles south of
Salt Lake City, when he heard a woman's screams as she was being pulled from her
SUV by the suspect, investigators said. The man told police he went to assist
the woman, and the 27-year-old male suspect lunged at him in an attempt to grab
his gun. The man fired one round at the suspect, hitting him in the chest. The
suspect later died at a hospital. No other injuries were reported.
14-year-old shot outside Stafford, TX 'Main Event Entertainment' complex
Police are looking for the person that shot a 14-year-old boy outside the Main

shock at the scene and disbelief hours later near the very same spot where
shooting occurred. "That's pretty crazy that something like that could happen
out of nowhere," said Vinh Tong, who was at a nearby restaurant Sunday and has
been to that Main Event before. Police say just before 11, around 50 teens were
gathered in front of Main Event because of an age limit inside the building.
That's when they say one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire, striking a
boy in the chest. Emergency crews rushed him to surgery at Memorial Hermann
Hospital in serious but stable condition, while police tried to piece together

Dollar associate in Lisbon, Ohio foils robbery; Robber hospitalized A
store clerk at the Family Dollar in Lisbon thwarted a robbery, even after the
assailant tied her up. According to the Morning Journal, the incident happened
just before 9 p.m. Sunday at the Family Dollar store on Route 45. According to
the Columbiana County Sheriff's Department, two workers were just getting ready
to close the store when a woman in her 50s rushed inside. She pulled a gun on
store clerks Tiffany Ketchum, 19, and manager Genia Byers. The robber told both
women to get on the floor and then she tied up Ketchum and demanded that Byers
open the registers and give her all the money. While Byers was opening the
registers, Ketchum was able to break free from her ties and attacked the robber.
Ketchum put the robber in a choke hold while Byers ran out of the store to a
local business where she called 911. The robber was critically injured during
the incident and is being treated at Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown. No
one else was injured in the incident.
Armed Jewelry Store Security Guard shoots at fleeing Grab and Run suspect in Los
Angeles A dramatic chase of a brazen thief, who stole an "expensive
watch" from a Southern California jewelry store, ended in gunshots Sunday
afternoon. Deputies responded to a call that reported a robbery at Hing Wa Lee
Jewelers in Walnut at 3:15 p.m, Lt. David Buckner said, from the Los Angeles
County Sheriff's Department. A man walked into the jewelry store and asked to
look at a watch. Once the "very expensive" watch was in his hand, he took off
running, Buckner said. An armed security guard chased the suspect and managed to
catch up with him. A scuffle ensued. The security guard allegedly saw the
suspect reach for something and "feared for his safety" prompting him to pull
out his gun and fire several shots at the suspect, Buckner said. The suspect
lost his shoe in the scuffle and ran away again, this time he got into a silver
car and "drove off." It was unclear if the suspect was injured. It was also
unclear if he was armed, Buckner said. Buildings in the area were struck by
gunfire, Buckner said. Investigators arrived at the jewelry store shortly after
the incident. No further information was available.

New Verizon scam - More customers complain of fraudulent Verizon accounts - with
different SSN's & addresses- Verizon has no response When George
Shrader ran his credit to buy a house, he found thousands of dollars in past-due
Verizon wireless bills. But he was never a customer! The company's response?
"She asked my social security number, it didn't match the account,"
Shrader said. "She asked for my address, it didn't match the account."
Shrader called 8 On Your Side after our investigation into two other fraudulent
accounts. In these recent cases, some thief used stolen information to open the
accounts online. Verizon is at a loss for an explanation. Cyber security expert
Sri Sridharan of the USF Center for Cybersecurity, said: "There's something
going on that we don't know what the root cause of it is." Cell phones are
attractive to crooks because they can be dumped quickly and bought online, and
that is where Verizon appears to have a weakness, Sridharan said. Verizon
spokeswoman Nicole Gavin said the company is researching what happened and
trying to resolve the issues.

say a brazen thief walked into a jewelry store inside a valley mall, pulled out
a gun and walked out with a bag full of valuables. March 18 at 9 p.m., the sun
already set around Desert Sky Mall at 75th Avenue and Thomas. It was closing
time inside and a thief took advantage of it. "This was near closing during the
middle of the week, so he lessened the amount of people who were around who
might have saw this," said Sgt. Derek Elmore, with Silent Witness. Surveillance
video released by Silent Witness shows the man walk into a jewelry store, gazing
into the display cases as if he's a customer. He then began to slip his hand
inside his jacket. Police say at that point, he pulled out a gun, pointed it a
clerk and demanded jewelry. "The clerk does comply, its the right thing to
comply, and then he's able to walk away with this jewelry," said Elmore. Silent
Witness says the suspect is considered a wanted man, a suspect in an armed
robbery. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that could lead up to

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of robbing eight convenience stores in
four counties multiple times. The men are believed to have robbed at least 16
stores including locations in Fountain Valley, Newport Beach, Orange and Santa
Ana, according to a news release from Chino Hills police. Anthony Edward Oddie
of Chino Hills and Richard Gomez-Quiroz of Riverside, both 20, were arrested by
Chino Hills detectives late Friday and early Saturday on a $1 million warrant,
according to San Bernardino County sheriff's detectives in Chino Hills. Wearing
a disguise including a surgical mask, hooded sweatshirt and gloves, Oddie would
carry an airsoft gun and machete during the robberies, while Gomez-Quiroz drove
Oddie to the stores and made sure to park away from surveillance cameras, police
said. They sometimes robbed up to four stores in one night and in some cases
returned to the same store on a later occasion. In addition to the Orange County
locations, the two are suspected of robbing stores in Artesia, Chino Hills,
Diamond Bar and Riverside. The arrests were the result of a nearly two-month
investigation involving eight law enforcement agencies.

Developing your verbal skills and focusing on your specific word usage to convey
messages is incredibly important for any successful executive. However,
developing your ability to listen and hear what they're saying is just as
important and in some cases may be even more so. It's great to be able to
articulate in a manner that shows your subject matter expertise, but it's even
better if you can mold it and change it on a dime based on what you're hearing
and seeing. And if you're too busy talking, you may just miss the entire
conversation and say something that doesn't even fit. Active listening requires
focus and attention and, as Abraham Lincoln said, "Better to remain silent and
be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
