Data Breaches Expose Corporate Communication Breakdowns
It’s taking longer for companies to become aware hackers have breached their protections and security experts say a major reason is a lack of communication between a company’s technology department, its management and the board. In contrast to increased coordination between hackers and cybercriminals, they point to a typically slow and dislocated response on the part of companies. "The primary risk we see today is the breach in communication from the data center to the board room,” said Rick Dakin, chief executive of data security firm Coalfire. In almost every breach situation after his company completes a forensic analysis, Mr. Dakin said the chief executive or chief financial officer pulls him aside and says if he had better information earlier he would have made smarter and quicker decisions. “They are intimating that their tech teams are just not talking about cyber risk in terms of business impact.” But when he speaks with the IT people, Mr. Dakin said he gets a different story, “that my boss just doesn’t get it and we are stuck here with outdated tools, outdated systems and we are not prepared to defend ourselves.” The recently released Verizon data breach investigations report for 2014 showed the gap between when a company knows it is being breached and when it actually was breached is growing.

Why U.S. e-retailers need to pay attention to the arrival of EMV - Card not present fraud to spike - Online fraud to skyrocket  U.S. e-retailers could face more risk of payment fraud in the coming years thanks to the transition from magnetic-stripe cards to those with chips, as is already the case in much of the world. But the good news is there’s time to prepare. In October 2015, the payment card networks plan to shift liability for fraudulent transactions to the party to a transaction that has failed to deploy EMV technology, whether the card issuer or the merchant. That is intended to pressure both card issuers and merchants to make the investments necessary to move to chip card technology. According to a recent report from Javelin Strategy & Research, 29% of U.S. credit cards—166 million—will have EMV chips by the end of 2015, along with 17%—105 million—of the debit cards in circulation. “Issuers are only just beginning to move to mainstream EMV card issuance beyond high-worth and international-traveler-focused cards,” Javelin says. It adds that “it will take until the end of 2018 for EMV card ubiquity” in the United States. So what does this mean for e-commerce operators in the United States? Well, with in-store transactions presumably safer as more consumers use EMV cards, criminals will likely increase their efforts at targeting presumably less secure online retailers. In the United Kingdom—it adopted EMV in 2001 but its liability shift did not take effect until 2005—card-not-present fraud increased from about 55% in 2007 to about 65% in 2012. (Source

Third-Party Risks a Focus at Chicago Fraud Summit
On May 14 in Chicago, at Information Security Media Group's Fraud Summit, our keynote panel will discuss some of the third-party risks card issuers and payments acquirers need to address, as well as how real-time payments could help to improve security. The keynote, "Payment Card Fraud & the Future of Secure Payment," will include presentations about the state of card fraud and third-party risks from Kirstin Wells of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Doug Johnson of the American Bankers Association and privacy attorney Ron Raether.

Mobile apps taking retailers by storm
Among retailers and distribution firms that have deployed mobile apps to their workforces, 46% are using mobile apps for inspections, followed by 35% for checklists and 31% for surveys. According to a new survey of more than 1,100 business and IT decision makers conducted by mobile business app provider Canvas, 63% of all businesses surveyed see value in integrating core business applications, such as Dropbox, Square, Salesforce, Evernote and Quickbooks, with mobile devices and tools. Credit card processing: Only 11% are using mobile credit card processing applications in their retail businesses. That retailers and distribution firms are going mobile is not a surprise; what this survey demonstrates is that organizations of all shapes and sizes are looking to a broadening array of mobile services to improve their business processes,” said James Quigley, co-founder and CEO, Canvas. “The results affirm that retailers are shifting core business processes to mobile; drawn to the ability of mobile apps to solve challenges associated with inefficient paper-based processes.” (Source

Exclusive: Barnes & Noble seeks big expansion of its college stores - opening 1,000 stores in 5 yrs.  Barnes & Noble, now the second largest operator of college bookstores with 696 shops, plans to have about 1,000 locations within five years, Max Roberts, chief executive of the company's college business, said. The push comes as Barnes & Noble is mulling selling itself and needs new sources of revenue because of sluggish sales at its traditional bookstores and a shrinking Nook digital unit. Still, Maxim Group analyst John Tinker said that even if the expansion goes more slowly than Roberts expects, it will improve the company's odds of fetching a good price if it splits itself up or sells itself.

U.S. retailers benefit from warmer April as sales bounce back
A number of large U.S. retailers, including Costco Wholesale Corp and Victoria's Secret parent L Brands Inc, reported April comparable sales above expectations, helped in part by a later Easter that pushed sales from March, and the end of a harsh winter that had kept many shoppers at home. "The April performance was strong and suggested that pent-up demand helped," said Michael Niemira, chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers. (Source

Three Strikes and He's Out! - Interesting look at Target's story over the last few years  Strike One: Spotty performance going into the recession and poor performance coming out. Strike Two: Poor decisions surrounding expansion into Canada. Strike Three: The data breach appears to have been a gross failure. Succession Plans? Written by a former Chairman/CEO of Sears Canada and a tenured senior retail leader, this article appearing in one of retails top blogs, The Robin Report, gives the reader a blow by blow run down of the past few years of Target's performance. An interesting account and one that leaves you asking how did one of the nation's premier retailers make such miss-steps and more importantly how are they going to right the ship. (Source

Radio Shack pulls back on number of store closings - lenders would not allow 1,100 closings  The company’s credit agreement allowed it to close only 200 stores a year and up to 600 over the life of the agreement. RadioShack had been negotiating with its lender for approval to close nearly twice that total number. The company said that its lenders were demanding terms that it could not accept, and that was why it would scale back the reorganization. (Source

Bitcoin lacks 'credibility and trust,' US SEC says
The agency issued a lengthy warning to investors on Wednesday about risks it sees in bitcoin and virtual currencies, much of which has been already iterated by bitcoin advocates or other regulators. Law enforcement and the SEC may also have trouble investigating bitcoin-related cases, the warning said, since banks are not involved with bitcoin transactions and there is no central authority to obtain information on users. "As a recent invention, Bitcoin does not have an established track record of credibility and trust," the agency wrote in its advisory. (Source

Fast-Food Worker Strikes Expanding - Workers in up to 150 cities worldwide are planning to strike on May 15  The protest movement, which originated in 2012 in New York, has since spread to about 100 cities, including Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles and Memphis. Workers from QSRs like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC have been walking off their jobs, calling on employers to pay them a minimum wage of $15 an hour and allow them to form unions without retaliation.

Smuggled cigarettes account for 57 percent of cigarettes sold in New York - Tops Nation  Local tobacco merchants say it’s no coincidence, because the state’s markup on cigarettes has gone up about 200 percent since 2006. The state currently has the highest tax at $4.35 per pack of 20 cigarettes. New York City currently charges $1.50 on top of the $4.35. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last March that he has established a “Cigarette Strike Force” composed of state, local and federal agencies that are determined to stop the incoming traffic of illegal contraband and untaxed tobacco.

Chip-and-PIN Cards a Key to Consumer Fraud Fears
A new study from Phoenix Marketing Group shows a majority of cardholders think that both store and online purchases are not very secure. Furthermore, they’re looking for proactive help from business on that front. The survey showed that most people don’t think enough is being done by credit card companies, merchants or the government to prevent fraud. Chip cards are one answer – chip-based payment cards, also known as smart cards, have an embedded microprocessor chip that contains the information needed to use the card for payment, and is protected by various security features, so they’re a more secure alternative to traditional magnetic stripe payment cards.

Should Ecommerce Merchants Accept Bitcoin?
Bitcoin, the best known of several virtual payment currencies, has made inroads into mainstream commerce, including brick-and-mortar retailers. Some ecommerce sites are already accepting Bitcoin and if you are considering joining this group, here are some things you should know. Those ecommerce merchants that accept Bitcoin are selling products that attract younger millennial consumers who are comfortable with cutting edge technology., which began accepting Bitcoin payments in December 2013, is the largest online merchant to accommodate digital coins. Although there are advantages to accepting digital currency such as lower fees, international acceptance and transactions can't be reversed, there are also drawbacks. These disadvantages include that digital currency can be extremely volatile including price fluctuations of hundreds of dollars in one hour, most consumers probably won't use it, and fraud and theft are very common with digital currency due to lack of regulation.

The Impact of Big Data on the Physical Security Market - Use the data you already have collected  From being a buzzword today, Big Data is poised to have a large impact on the physical security market with numerous practical applications in preventing and fighting crime. Among the aspects of Big Data is the idea of “data exhaust” – data that has been collected but doesn’t have any existing uses. The security marketplace may well find new ways to use that data for the benefit of security. Data is a resource just waiting for technology to analyze it and turn it into something useful (in our industry’s case, to promote security). (Source

How Claire's Stores Masters 300 Million Rows of Data
When specialty retailer Claire's Stores, Inc. signed on with Big Data mastermind 1010data last year, it was difficult to completely comprehend the processing power of such a modern enterprise business intelligence (BI) solution. Claire’s SVP of IT Rob Cole says the company’s POS transactions by SKU generate in the neighborhood of 300 million rows of data over a three-year period. Inventory, merchandising, supply chain, and ancillary enterprise systems generate hundreds of million more rows, adding up to billions of rows of data. Those figures are constantly growing. However, 1010data has allowed Claire’s to not only analyze the data in its local businesses, but also share these analyses with colleagues at any time and from any location. Today, the platform is leveraged by more than 100 users regularly in North America and Europe, spanning a cross-section of disciplines. When it comes to Loss Prevention - the six months of transaction log history the company previously stored can now expand to two years, enabling better, more granular long-term LP trend analysis with access to more history at that granular level.

Kroger exec shares how Big Data can help earn customers' trust
Kroger, the nation’s largest operator of traditional supermarkets, uses customer loyalty as a gauge of how much its customers trust it. If they don’t trust Kroger to keep fresh food in the store, to offer fair prices and to provide great customer service, they won’t come back, says Lynn Marmer, Group VP of Corp. Affairs for Kroger. “Kroger was one of the first in the industry to use messages on customer receipts to alert a shopper when they purchased in the recent past an item that is being recalled,” Marmer said. “We want customers to see us as their advocate, as a company ‘on their side,’ keeping their family healthy and safe.” (Source

Video of mob at Arbor Place Mall goes viral, Douglasville, GA  Police investigating Douglasville Police Chief Chris Womack estimates there were around 45 mostly older teens involved in the mob. He said there have been no reports of injuries so far and that it’s still unclear if any laws were broken. Womack said two off-duty detectives were working the carnival set up in the parking lot nearby. He said the carnival was loud and enclosed, making it hard for the detectives to hear or see the mob that had developed closer to the mall. Once the initial call came in around 10:32 p.m., Womack said the detectives went to see what was going on and found the crowd running in all different directions. (Source

Cargo theft ring busted in Fresno, Ca. - 15 tractor trailers carrying millions in cargo stolen in 18 days  A multi-agency team arrested Robert Blackwell, 35, after watching him break into a locked tractor trailer around 1:30 a.m in Tulare County. The trailer was bait, stuffed with thousands of dollars worth of cargo. When Blackwell, who was on probation, tried to drive away with the loot, authorities swooped in for the arrest. The sting was initiated after a company had 15 tractor trailers, carrying millions of dollars worth of cargo, looted in the last 18 days around Tulare County. Investigators say they believe others may have assisted Blackwell, and the investigation is continuing. (Source

The vehicle appeared to aim directly at the store's front doors, damaging both them and the metal security gate. The windows both above and on either side of the doors survived the impact. (Source

Two Men Wanted in Target Store Theft Scheme in Frederick, MD  The Frederick County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating two men who are wanted for questioning in connection to a reported theft scheme at a Target Store in Frederick.

How to Hire More Top Performers
It's no secret that the best workers usually get better results than the others, so it can go without saying that if you have more top performers, your company will outdo any others! Here are three key factors to help you get the best of the best and more productivity. (Jump in the talent pool)

How to Network Like You Really Mean It  When it comes to networking, the quality is more important than quantity. We have, in our society, a driven vibe that it's helpful to meet a lot of people, but knowing a lot of people isn't useful for all professions. Use these tips to network like a pro. (Who matters most)

The Art of Saying a Professional Goodbye  When it comes time to leave your job, saying goodbye can seem so simple, it doesn't take any thought. However, this process is the most meaningful, as it can lead to networking connections and relationships with the people you're leaving behind. (Do something special)

Tell Your Whole Story in an Interview
In interviews, you may try to be as concise and to-the-point as possible, but in fact you may want to relate your job experience as a story. To find out what drives you, what your purpose is, you need to do some backtracking as it happened far before your first job. (Rediscover the early years)

When you think you've got your job mastered, think again. That's usually when something bad happens in one's career or company. If you reach that point, and most everyone does, it's time to reevaluate everything you're doing. Go on the hunt for new technology, new ideas, rewrite your program, take a fresh look at every aspect of your department. Maybe even bring in a consultant you don't know or have ties to, someone who will challenge you and debate with you and won't be there to merely confirm what you're doing and agree with your approach. But someone who will test you and force you to grow, someone who you may even be uncomfortable with. Get out of your comfort zone and have some fun!

Just a Thought,
