Target's Chief Executive Gregg Steinhafel's fall will heighten the attention CEOs in retail give to C-level security pros - It's the time for retail CSO's - Do we have what it takes?  The massive data breach that tarnished the career of Target Chief Executive Gregg Steinhafel and contributed to his resignation is a reminder of the worst-case scenario facing CEOs caught in a security SNAFU. Nevertheless, the breach announced last December that damaged the retailer's reputation and was behind a drop in sales during the busiest shopping season of the year was certainly a major contributor to Steinhafel stepping down. The breach was the straw that broke the camel's back," Avivah Litan, analyst for Gartner, said. The Target cyberattack, which was followed by intense media and congressional attention, was a "watershed event" for the retail industry, Litan said. Since then, CEOs have built closer ties to chief security officers, often having CSOs report directly to them. Other industry sectors have had their own catalysts for elevating the role of the CSO in business development. In the financial sector, the turning point were the 2012 distributed denial of service attacks by Iranian hacktivists that lasted for several months. For government agencies, it was former contractor Edward Snowden releasing sensitive documents last year on Internet spying by the U.S. National Security Agency. Taken together, these events have drummed security in the consciousness of many CEOs. Experts agree that C-level security officers should report directly to chief executives, rather than to the CIO. Company boards should invite C-level security pros to business development discussions, in order to get the security implications of decisions, High said. (Source

International Organization of Black Security Executives unveils new website, hosts 2014 Spring Conference at Ross Stores HQ  The International Organization of Black Security Executives (IOBSE) just launched a newly designed website, which features up-to-date news, events and information about the organization and their objectives of developing and mentoring future leaders in the Security and Loss Prevention industry. IOBSE is the leading organization for minority security professionals. It was founded in 1982 by Black Security Executives who were concerned about the relatively small number of minority professionals in the industry, with the objective of providing career development and mentoring for young minority college students aspiring to the security industry. Seeing the importance of the non-profit organization, Downing & Downing partnered with IOBSE well over 10 years ago to help develop and host the group's original website. Today, Downing & Downing and the D&D Daily remain close partners with IOBSE - and helped develop the new website which helps continue its mission of developing future industry leaders for tomorrow's security and LP challenges. Last week, IOBSE held its 2014 Spring Conference in Pleasanton, Calif., at the corporate offices for Ross Stores. The organization remains dedicated to providing quality security-management-focused educational programs for minorities worldwide. And we at the Daily would like to recognize them for their unmatched efforts. Stay tuned for a re-cap of the conference coming soon.

Improved Analytics Can Boost the Fraud Fight
The dynamic, real-time challenges presented by payment fraud are an ideal environment for analytic intervention. In fact, payment fraud prevention was one of the earliest commercial successes of Big Data analytics. And improvements in analytics will be key to fighting fraud in the future. The constant adaptation of anti-fraud technology has not only kept pace with changes in payment and fraud patterns, it has actually made payments safer. In the U.S., credit card fraud was equivalent to roughly 18 basis points (0.18%) of all payment card activity in 1992. Today, payment fraud in the U.S. is closer to 5 basis points of all credit card payments. Because of this powerful technology, the payments industry has been able to introduce new payment methods and channels, such as e-commerce, mobile commerce and peer-to-peer payments that have lowered friction for the customer, albeit with new fraud vulnerabilities.

Hackers Discover New Vulnerabilities: Retailers Beware
Cyber criminals are increasingly turning to RAM scrapping malware, a technique thought to have fallen out of favor among thieves in recent years, to orchestrate some of the biggest POS breaches in recent history. The use of RAM scrappers at the POS level allows for the theft of credit card information before it is processed and encrypted. This report paints a bleak landscape of retailers' ability to battle the increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals. Verizon's report asserts that most of the current cyber security hacks are originating by organized crime based in Eastern Europe and that the criminals are far outpacing retailers in speed and intricacy. "The bad guys seldom need days to get their job done," the report asserts. "While the good guys rarely manage to get theirs done in a month of Sundays." The top three threats to shopper data, according to Verizon, are Internet intrusion, stolen vendor credentials, and compromise at the corporate location. (Source

The Ocean's 11 of Strip Mall Robberies

How Investigators Tracked Down Five L.A. Criminals Who Lived the High Life Off Rooftop Bank Heists - Stole Millions by 'Busting In From Above'

The men had their pick of eight banks at the busy intersection of Diamond Bar Boulevard and Grand Avenue in Los Angeles. They chose the Citibank branch that used to be a Blockbuster store. For more than a month, the five of them became regular customers. But unlike others who used that branch, they returned after dark — to watch and wait. Then, one night in April 2013, four of the men climbed out of a white van in matching Dickies jeans and long-sleeved shirts. Carrying a 6-foot ladder, roofing materials, a drill and other heavy equipment, they climbed onto the Diamond Bar bank's roof. For three hours, they cut and sliced through the rooftop. Using a sonar device, they were able to locate the vault and cut a hatch right over it. They stole nothing that night — in fact, they sealed the hole up before leaving. This was a two-night job, and they wanted to make sure bank employees never suspected a thing. For years, the crew was taking advantage of less-fortified one-story strip-mall banks with cuttable roofs and more easily breached after-market concrete vaults, investigators say. In one bank heist back in August 2011, the five men stole a million dollars in cash and emptied 65 safe-deposit boxes, which once held as much as $14 million in cash, gold and jewelry. Although they lived in modest homes in the Inland Empire towns of Beaumont, Banning and Yucaipa, their lifestyles were anything but modest: fast cars, a fleet of Ducatis, bottles of 1950s-vintage Dom Perignon, and trips to Las Vegas where they'd drop $60,000 in gambling sprees, according to court documents and prosecutors. "None of them worked and they were living the high life. They had all the toys," said Det. Nicholas Cannis of the L.A. County Sheriff's Major Crimes Bureau. "They spent most of their time spending money... They simply believed they were characters in 'Ocean's Eleven' or 'Fast and Furious.'" On the night of April 4, 2013, the suspects loaded up their van with their construction tools and set out for yet another L.A. bank. From a neighboring property, Cannis and other detectives of L.A.'s Major Crimes Bureau could see the rooftop activity. It was nearly 2 a.m. when the five men drove off from the bank. They didn't get far — a GPS device had been attached to the van. When they hit the highway, some 30 detectives and deputies stopped the van and the lookout car and handcuffed the men without a struggle. Two days later, they pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank burglary and attempted bank burglary. They face up to 25 years in prison at sentencing this summer. Prosecutors are preparing to charge the men in at least two of the other bank burglaries. And there's something else, Cannis said: "All that money is still somewhere out there." (Source

Informant grilled on convictions in federal cargo theft trial
The government’s chief witness spent much of Monday under intense cross-examination as the federal trial of three Cuban immigrants charged in a major Las Vegas-area theft ring entered its second week. Defense lawyer Thomas Pitaro grilled six-time felon Yordani Corona Del Toro about his claims not to know what his FBI handler did to get him probation in two state burglary cases. Pitaro said FBI agent Shay Christensen even talked to the judge at Del Toro’s sentencing in one of the cases. Del Toro, 23, who also is a Cuban immigrant, got probation despite plea deals allowing state prosecutors to seek life in prison for him as a habitual criminal after he fled the county for several months last year. The three defendants — Julio De Armas Diaz, 54; Alexis Torres Simon, 46; and Alexander Del Valle Garcia, 42 — are standing trial on felony charges tied to the theft of drugs and high-quality merchandise from delivery vans and warehouses around the Las Vegas Valley.

Police said there have been no arrests in the shooting that occurred at 6:25 p.m. in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 12236 Montana in the far East Side.

The man was taken to Del Sol Medical Center with a wound that was not believed to be life threatening. On Monday, police said that the man and the shooter may know each other but it has not been confirmed if they are related. Police had initially said the shooting appeared to involve family violence.

Why Theft Ring is Targeting Trader Joe's Stores in California  At least three agencies -- the LAPD, the San Diego PD, and the Ventura County Sheriff's Department -- are trying to stop a supermarket theft ring. Armed with nothing more than a common reusable shopping bag, a ring of thieves is stealing shoppers wallets--and identities--using a clever bag trick, at a growing number of Southern California supermarkets, an NBC4 I-Team investigation has found. "It's a nightmare. It's an ongoing nightmare," says Martha, who asked us not to use her last name. The thieves swiped Martha's wallet from her purse, which she put in her cart at Whole Foods in Del Mar. Surveillance video obtained by the I-Team shows how it happened. A male suspect sidles up to Martha's cart, and as she turned her head to look at a display, the suspect sticks his hand in her purse, blocking her view of the cart with a reusable shopping bag.

It seems like we're always saying "get back to the basics" and "keep it simple" almost on a daily basis. We say it so much, most of us don't even hear it and certainly don't appreciate its absolute truth that it speaks to. In our self-motivating attempts to be great at what we do, oftentimes we run faster and try to do more and lose sight of one basic rule. Success begins with the basics. And it's only when we feel like we've evolved beyond them that we find we've only outsmarted ourselves and at that point we've all got to start over and just get back to the basics.
