Are Conferences Still Relevant?

Part One of Three - By Amber Bradley

Let's face it. It seems like every year we're invited to yet another conference touting the "most valuable speakers" with the most "innovative exhibit floor." An ever-expanding conference calendar leaves most of us in a summer fog of networking receptions and solution provider trinkets banging around in our purses or briefcases, respectively. It's come to the point where loss prevention professionals must be intentional about where they spend their most precious assets: their time and their organization's money. As conference season begins and professionals of all types descend onto the flat plains of Colorado, it begs the question: Are conferences still relevant?

Day one of the Retail Industry Leaders Association's (RILA) Asset Protection conference started out as any other - a hot breakfast full of networking colleagues ready to file into another keynote session. Lisa LaBruno, Executive Vice President, Retail Operations & Innovation for RILA, set the tone for this year's conference with her annual address, but instead of touting attendance numbers and the typical trade show speak, LaBruno gave an update of RILA activities that set a different course. She unveiled a new and exciting RILA mission and efforts to bring all retailers together (RILA member or not) for learning and expansion of the retail industry, including new research, new committees, and efforts to continue complex lobbying. She also delivered a fresh message about setting the standard for the new way retail defines loss for their organization as, "Total Retail Loss." Impressive start.

The morning's keynote session, "Creating a Better Everyday Life: What is Retail's Role in Society?," given by Lars Petersson, Senior Advisor, Former President US IKEA North America, was an enlightening look at how IKEA embraces social causes and how that impacts both local and international store operations. Petersson was an interesting choice to kick-off the conference and it's always insightful to take a quick look behind the curtain of a major retailer. Read more here

Security by the Book

Barnes & Noble Loss Prevention chief Rosamaria Sostilio
reflects on retail security trends

Thinking of pocketing a copy of Harry Potter on the sly? As Asset Protection VP at Barnes and Noble, Rosamaria Sostilio will see that doesn't happen.

In a career spanning three decades, Sostilio has sunk her teeth deep into retail security. Previously she safeguarded couture as SVP of Loss Prevention at Hudson Bay Co. and SVP asset protection at Saks Fifth Avenue. She's an active player with the National Retail Federation's loss prevention council and a frequent collaborator with law enforcement officials.

Her philosophy: Look at the big picture; leverage technology; let humans drive security. Here, Sostilio takes us on a deep dive into the emerging trends and winning strategies in retail security today.

Security Reflects Society

After 30 years in the business, Sostilio defines her high-water mark by her involvement with her retail-security peers.

"What's really been a great thing for me to work on is my work in the National Retail Federation and the Loss Prevention Council," she says. "I find that to be a highlight in my career, to really get to work with my colleagues at that level."

Through the council she's been engaged with high-level trends around loss prevention, from legislative issues to ground-level tactics and strategies. She's come to view retail security as a reflection of larger social issues.

"The best way to describe what's going on in loss prevention trends would be to turn on your TV and see what's going on in the world. You see political rallies, terrorist concerns, the opioid epidemic: All those directly affect retailers," she says.

More than just a philosophical position, this view of security has direct operational impact. "Stores are located on streets, streets have protests, and we have to protect our customers and make it a welcoming environment for everyone to come in," she says. "Years ago, we were focused on fire drills. Now we're focused on preparation for an active shooter."

FBI Report: Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, 2018
12% Increase in Number of Officers Killed in Line of Duty

106 law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty last year, an 12% increase from 2017, according to the FBI's annual Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, 2018 (LEOKA) report released today.

In 2018, 55 law enforcement officers were feloniously killed and 51 were killed accidentally, for a total of 106 killed for the year. The previous year, a total of 94 officers were killed in the line of duty.

The FBI collects officer deaths and assault data from law enforcement agencies across the United States and U.S. territories, and publishes it through its Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. LEOKA tracks detailed data on officer line-of-duty assaults and deaths, so the information can be used in officer safety training.

Of the 55 officers who were feloniously killed in 2018:
●  Three were female and 52 were male.
●  Line-of-duty deaths occurred in 28 states and Puerto Rico
●  By race, 46 of the victim officers were White, 7 were Black/African American, and 2 were Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander.
●  36 officers were fatally injured in assaults that happened between 12:01 p.m. and midnight.
●  43 of the officers feloniously killed were wearing body armor at the time of the incidents.
●  31 of the alleged offenders were White, 23 were Black/African American, and 1 was Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander.

Incidents in 2018:
● Respond to Alarms Burglary/Robbery - 0 deaths
● Respond to Crime in Progress Burglary (2), Larceny (0), Robbery (0), Property crime (1)
● Pursuit on Foot (4), Vehicle (2)

51 officers were accidentally killed last year

Editor's Note: The 12% increase reported in this FBI report tracks closely with the D&D Daily's 2018 Retail Violent Death Report, which showed a 15% increase in deaths from 2017. The top states for law enforcement killings reported by the FBI over the past three years also closely mirrors our reporting. Read the full 2018 Retail Violent Death Report here.


LVMH attorney alleges 'sham' sexual harassment investigation
A top attorney in the New York office for French international luxury goods conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc. has filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging that another manager sexually harassed her and that the outside investigation into the situation was a "sham," according to court documents.

In her complaint, Andowah Newton said that shortly after she started working for LVMH, a senior-level manager began to engage in a "persistent and invasive campaign of sexual harassment" against her that lasted for years.

She said when informal attempts to get the man to stop were unsuccessful, she filed a formal complaint with HR, requesting an investigation by an "outside, impartial, and unbiased expert." The outside investigation turned out to be nothing more than "a mediation aimed at persuading [her] to stop pursuing her claims," Newton said. She also said she was retaliated against in the form of negative job evaluations after she started complaining about the man's behavior. retaildive.com

Mass. Cracks Down On Employers Flouting 'Ban The Box' Law
Brooks Brothers was among 19 storefront businesses in Massachusetts that agreed to change their hiring practices after they asked for job applicants' criminal histories in violation of state law, state Attorney General Maura Healey said Monday.

Following a wave of warning letters, the attorney general's office said all 19 business have come into compliance with the state's 2010 law requiring private employers to "ban the box" asking about criminal charges and convictions on application forms.

Thirty-four states and more than 100 municipalities have outlawed questions about an applicant's criminal record in the hiring process for government jobs. Massachusetts is among a dozen states that have extended those laws to private business, according to the National Employment Law Project.

The laws intend to knock down a barrier to reentry to society for people with criminal records and level the playing field for people of color, who are disproportionately affected by the criminal justice system. vectorsecurity.com

The Growth Of CBD And How Supermarkets Can Get In On It
This year's trade shows are already revealing that CBD has exploded

The CBD market is booming. At $641 million U.S. sales in 2018, CBD sales are expected to grow significantly over the next three years. In its 2019 report, the Hemp Business Journal projects that total CBD sales in the U.S. could hit $1.5 billion by 2020 and $2.26 billion by 2022 ($1.3 billion in hemp-derived CBD, $647 million from marijuana-derived CBD and $310 million from pharmaceuticals). Predicting much steeper growth, Chicago-based market research firm Brightfield Group estimates CBD sales to hit $22 billion by 2022.

The 2018 Farm Bill's legalization of industrial production of hemp opened the door for broader marketing of hemp-derived CBD products. Although CBD remains in a legal gray area, potentially subject to FDA regulations (particularly in food and beverage), hemp-derived CBD is legal in most states and going mainstream in non-food categories.

With large chains like Sephora, Neiman Marcus and now CVS selling CBD topical balms, lotions, soaps, serums, masks and sprays, retail is embracing CBD beauty and personal care products. This presents a huge opportunity in supermarket non-food categories.

Tips on how supermarkets can best capitalize on this new sub-category of non-food product:

● Understand different classification of CBD products. ● Ensure third-party product verification. ● Review state and local ordinances. ● Look for a vertically integrated supply chain. ● Market strategically. ● Pay attention to packaging and merchandising.

As a new feature in supermarkets, CBD products should be merchandised in a way that draws attention, educates the consumer and discourages theft. Off-shelf displays with signage can help to inform and enthuse shoppers. With visible signage, keeping product near (or even behind) the counter or in-store pharmacy can also help to pique interest and encourage questions about the product.

Practicing cyber resiliency in the digital age
Latest episode from NRF's Retail Gets Real podcast

Retail's digital transformation has ushered in a new era of data, which allows retailers to work smarter, innovate faster and serve customers better, but it has also introduced new risks. PwC U.S. Cybersecurity and Privacy Leader Sean Joyce says when it comes to cybersecurity, being resilient - the ability to adapt and recover critical business operations after a cybersecurity threat or breach has been identified - is key.

The cybersecurity landscape evolves constantly, with hackers developing new technology to breach systems every day, so security efforts also need to adapt fast. Cyber attacks are also not geographically contained and may cross international borders. As businesses adapt, adversaries do too. "I don't know if anyone is doing a good job keeping up," Joyce says.

That's why resiliency is so important. To improve cyber resiliency, retailers must constantly evaluate their business operations, understand the risk of a breach and continually update defenses while ensuring "the right people are involved in the practice sessions," Joyce says. That includes not only the chief information security officer, but the CEO and chief operating officer as well. Small and medium-sized companies that have fewer internal resources to counter cyber threats can take advantage of tools from groups like the Global Cyber Alliance.

Listen to the full episode to learn more about the cyber threats retailers need to be aware of, what it takes to increase cyber resiliency and how consumers can protect themselves: nrf.com

Darknet Disruption: 'Wall Street Market' Closed for Business
Two of the world's most notorious darknet markets have been disrupted as part of coordinated, international law enforcement operations. The markets sold illegal narcotics, counterfeit currency, malware, stolen jewelry and more.

Authorities officially announced the takedowns of the Wall Street Market as well as the Silkkitie - aka Valhalla Marketplace - on Friday.

The Wall Street Market was formerly the world's second-largest illegal darknet market.

Authorities say the site had 5,400 registered sellers and 1.15 million customers, who conducted transactions using bitcoin and monero cryptocurrencies, with between 2 and 6 percent of all sales going to the site's administrators as commission.

German police have arrested three German nationals - aged 22, 29 and 31 - on April 23 and 24, on suspicion of being the administrators of Wall Street Market, after having monitored their activities since March. databreachtoday.com

Santa Clara County, CA: 21-year old sentenced for 10 years in prison for
$7.5 million Cryptocurrency theft

At least 40 people fell victim to Joel Ortiz who targeted cryptocurrency traders. It took him minutes to steal over $5.2 million from a cryptocurrency entrepreneur from Cupertino, California. He spent what he stole "lavishly," the court heard, for instance on designer clothes, $10,000 nights at Los Angeles clubs, and hiring a helicopter. $400,000 of Ortiz's loot was seized following his arrest. "These are not Robin Hoods," said prosecutor Erin West. "These are crooks who use a computer instead of a gun. They are not just stealing some ethereal, experimental currency. They are stealing college funds, home mortgages, people's financial lives." Ortiz is one of five people arrested by the REACT task force in association to mobile phone scams. theblockcrypto.com

COMMENTARY: How Mobile-App Testing Can Stop 3 Common Types
of E-Commerce Fraud

The rush to launch apps often leads to shortcuts or, worse yet, no testing at all. And when consumers download and use untested apps, they unknowingly open themselves, and the companies providing the apps, to cyber-attacks and payment fraud.

However, by understanding three common types of fraud and how app testing can help prevent them, you can better safeguard your business or financial institution and its customers from the dangers that lurk in the underbelly of the app world.

One of the more creative techniques cybercriminals use to target consumers is to modify and repackage genuine mobile apps by inserting or deleting files. This is known as app cloning. To prevent app cloning, it's imperative to test your app against imposter fraud, as well as build in extra levels of security, such as two-factor authentication, in the login process.

A second common form of attack is through distributed denial of service (DDoS), in which a hacker attempts to maliciously disrupt normal Web-site or app traffic. This sneak attack causes hardware and software failure to disrupt normal processes. To prevent this type of performance interference, companies must test the speed of typical app transactions.

Finally, a third method of cyber-assault is phishing, a variant of social engineering used by hackers to steal online bank, credit card, and other personal login information. To prevent phishing, companies must know their consumers and test all the apps they download, since fraudsters can sneak in through third-party apps. digitaltransactions.net

Alibaba solves $250M securities fraud lawsuit
Alibaba has settled a USD 250 million US lawsuit that accused the ecommerce company of concealing regulatory warnings about its ability to stop counterfeiting. The company was accused of securities fraud for failing to disclose a meeting with China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce in July 2014. This occurred two months before the company's USD 25 billion initial public offering. However, a spokesperson of the company said Alibaba was glad to have this matter behind it, as prolonged litigation is neither conducive to protecting the interest of their shareholders, nor does it help Alibaba to focus on creating more value for society. thepaypers.com

Amazon can't dodge Williams-Sonoma trademark-infringement lawsuit
Amazon.com Inc. failed to dodge a lawsuit that accused it of trying to trick shoppers into thinking it was an authorized reseller of Williams-Sonoma products.

Williams-Sonoma filed the trademark-infringement lawsuit last year to protest a section of the Amazon website that displays hundreds of its products and doesn't make clear that the products aren't coming directly from Williams-Sonoma. digitalcommerce360.com

Dover, DE: Police Seeking Identity of Macy's Robbery Suspects
Dover police are trying to identify a group of suspects wanted in connection with a shoplifting incident that turned into a robbery at the Macy's department store in the Dover Mall on Sunday. According to police, a loss prevention employee observed a group of four women allegedly concealing clothing items in several plastic bags.

The women were accompanied by two young children. The employee reportedly attempted to retrieve the items once the suspects passed all points of purchase. When he grabbed one of the bags, two of the women sprayed him with pepper spray. The use of the pepper spray makes this incident a robbery case, police said. The women fled the area after spraying the employee, according to police. wmdt.com

If anything, the freedom an email offers insofar as the ability to write whatever best suits your points and usually with an added pinch of sarcasm may, in fact, deepen the crevasse and cause more harm. It's much easier to write in solitude than to face your intended recipient and their immediate response. So the next time you receive one of those OMG emails, think twice before responding because you never know who else may be reading and, after all, if you truly want to resolve an issue with a person, you need to do it the old fashion way -- face to face.

Just a Thought,
