California's 'Stop Consumer Racial Profiling Act of 2016' legislation - AB 2707
State legislator, Sebastian Ridley-Thomas authors (AB 2707-the Stop Consumer Racial Profiling Act of 2016) that "will amend California's state's civil rights statute to include the definition of this demeaning practice and require the state's civil rights watchdog to investigate reported incidences of the practice. It is my hope that this legislation would pass a vote of my colleagues and be signed by the Governor. But more important than the passage of a bill is the transformation of behaviors by retailers that violate the civil and human rights of African American consumers."

Corporate loss prevention schemes must be reformed, executives, managers and rank-and-file employees must be awakened, and people of goodwill must demand that the targeting of consumers by racial characteristic is factually and morally wrong. It must end.

A new civil rights consciousness has gripped a great deal of the country. Maybe we can address some of the challenges that still occur on the basis of race by turning the tide against consumer racial profiling and letting it be a thing of the past." huffingtonpost.com

Chargebacks & Gift Cards Impacting Retailers & Card Networks
Lowering Limits & Removing Higher Denomination products

Safeway's spinoff Blackhawk (HAWK) a Calif.-based giftcard network, is finding themselves increasingly at risk.

Blackhawk -- whose shares are down 27% on the year -- has cited the regulatory-mandated introduction of EMV chips, which was adopted last October for card issuers and store processors, as a hazard for its current business model. How big a hazard? Pretty big, judging by this statement in their 10-Q filing:

As a result, some of our non-EMV compliant retail distribution partners have taken restrictive measures around the sale of gift cards, in particular higher denomination open loop gift cards and some closed loop gift cards. These measures include establishing lower limits on credit card purchases of gift cards and removing higher denomination products from displays in impacted markets to mitigate their liability for fraudulent credit card activity in their stores, which decreased our transaction dollar volume."

And based on the new restrictions surrounding EMV cards, Blackhawk CEO Talbott Roche predicts a direct impact on 2016 sales of $29 million on operating revenues and $30 million on adjusted EBITDA.

Supermarkets themselves are finding the giftcard sales department shrinking and costs mount as counterfeiters and fraudsters increasingly turn to giftcards, which generally use a traditional swipe-and-pay system, for online payment theft.

Supermarket chain Kroger (KG), for example, cited EMV chargebacks as a primary driver in its increasing operating costs, which increased to more than 16.3% of 2015 sales, up from 15.8% in 2014.

And as gift cards increasingly become more of a liability for merchants, retailers also may feel the pain as their portion of gift card sales declines.

Editor's Note: There's no data or reports of how many retailers have lowered limits on gift card purchases or removed higher denominations from the displays, but leave it to say it's having a significant impact nationwide. Especially if it's starting to appear in legal filings. The numbers have to be in the tens-of-millions as reported yesterday. thestreet.com

Employee Safety: When A 'Reasonable Response' Isn't Enough
When a string of criminal behaviors occur at a workplace, employers may take steps to beef up physical on-premise security, offer employees basic safety training, or install surveillance cameras, among other measures. On the surface, these appear to be sensible responses that help mitigate criminal activity at a place of business.

But what happens when these measures fail to prevent another incident? Employers can find themselves on the receiving end of a lawsuit they never saw coming. Injured employees could bring suit and claim that the business is at least partly responsible for the damages caused by the criminal behavior.

While a business typically has no duty to protect an individual from the criminal conduct of a third party, the plaintiff successfully argued that, by taking security measures after earlier incidents, OOIDA had assumed responsibility to protect its employees from domestic violence and then failed to perform that duty.

By creating more robust security plans, companies may be setting themselves up for opportunities to fail, particularly if they don't follow through on security recommendations or if they're inconsistent in the safety measures they offer one employee over another.

From a legal standpoint, then, companies could be better off taking very limited security measures or none at all. law360.com

The Bay Department Stores in Toronto
Pulls controversial 'Don't Talk to Cops!' clothing

Hudson's Bay scrambled on Monday to strip caps and T-shirts that proclaimed "Don't Talk to Cops!" from store shelves and its website.

HBC had been selling the $40 baseball caps and $35 shirts made by the OBEY Clothing line, founded by U.S. artist and skateboarder Shepard Fairey. Both items conveyed the controversial message in big white letters across their fronts.

Toronto Police Association president Mike McCormack said the clothing's message doesn't help officers do their jobs, particularly in high-risk neighbourhoods where there may be a distrust of his members. "It's a very negative message, and we have a huge problem with it," said McCormack, who contacted the retailer's head office about his concerns.

The revelation about the hats and shirts also comes at a time of debate around carding, a controversial police practice where citizens are stopped and questioned as a way of collecting information many officers insist is valuable to crime fighting.

HBC spokesman Tiffany Bourre confirmed in an email that the items were being axed. "We are pulling the product from our stores and online," said Bourre, who stressed that the "safety and well-being of all individuals is always our number one priority." torontosun.com

Fuel Fraud in Truck Fleets is Major Issue = 5% of Fuel Costs
The research, entitled 'Fraud Matters', surveyed fleet managers and drivers in eight countries across the globe. It found that 48% of fleet managers agreed they need to do more to tackle the issue of fuel fraud which could unlock fuel cost savings of more than 5%.

Furthermore, the report reveals that over a third of drivers (34%) agree that fraud is now a serious issue for their industry. With 26% of drivers admitting to witnessing a colleague behave fraudulently at work - with fuel siphoning highlighted as a common example. Other costly criminal practices identified by managers and drivers include drivers paying for fuel with cash to hide the purchase of additional items, ccard cloning and account hacking.

With 37% of fleet managers stating that a lack of driver education stops them from improving how effectively they detect fraud. Yet even so, a lack of time and resources means just 28% currently offer fraud prevention training for staff. Consequently, while 61% of fleet managers claim to be aware of the latest anti-fraud solutions, just 30% of drivers feel similarly up-to-speed.  fleetnews.co.uk

Michigan Supreme Court allows national input into Warren Pawn Shop's lawsuit vs LeadsOnLine
The state Supreme Court said Friday the National Pawnbrokers Association can file a brief in the case of a Warren pawn shop suing the city for its use of a national electronic tracking system of transactions. The order, released Saturday, says the organization can file in Motor City Pawn Brokers' case against the city of Warren for its use of LeadsOnline, a Texas-based company that provides a computer database for pawn shop transactions in more than 2,000 cities nationwide, including many in Michigan. Vince Manzella, attorney for Motor City, said the ruling is favorable for his client because the association is expected to argue on the shop's behalf. The state Court of Appeals in December upheld Macomb County Judge Druzinski's decision to allow the city to continue to use LeadsOnline. macombdaily.com

Cybersecurity Cited as Top Retail Risk Factor 
1st Time Ever - Cybersecurity Ranked Top Risk by 100%

Cybersecurity is a top risk concern among retailers, according to a BDO study.

In its Retail Risk Factor Report, BDO cites cybersecurity along with general economic conditions as tied for the number-one risk concern mentioned in the most recent 10-Ks of the 100 largest U.S. retailers. While general economic conditions remained the number-one risk for the last three years, 2016's study is the first time cybersecurity shared the top spot. Cybersecurity as a risk ranked fourth in 2015 and eighth in 2014. And while it was cited by 100 percent of all respondents, it was noted by just 26 percent at the survey's inception in 2007. The recent spate of retail breaches beginning in 2013 has raised awareness of the issue.

"The risk is expanding beyond and above just technology and in the context of EMV chip method of enhancing the authentication payment process. There are other risks that are engaged [such as when] retailers have relationships with third parties."

Those third parties have access to information from the retailer's network, such as the personal information of customers that are often considered confidential, he explained. How that information is protected and how a retailer manages that risk are issues that need to be addressed. He also said many companies haven't even categorized different third-party relationships by risk level, a triaging of sorts, into low, medium and high. And for situations where information is present for divisions that are sold or no longer in operation, attention to how that information is protected or transferred needs to be considered in advance.

Nearly seven in 10 retail chief financial officers said they expected cyber regulation to grow in 2016. wwd.com

Security professionals making it easy for hackers
Why Physical Security Professionals Need to Get to Grips with Cyber Security

In today's connected workplace, weak links in security systems can be the easiest way for hackers to get onto a network. Those culpable for inviting outsiders in sometimes include: manufacturers, who push out unsecured products until end-users stump up; installers, who leave systems running with default passwords; and end-users, who unknowingly open up networks, leaving their organizations vulnerable to attack.

IT managers cannot be expected to manage this epidemic alone. 40 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020 and if something has a computer attached to it, it has the potential to be hacked. Cyber security poses the biggest threat to insurers' balance sheets since 9/11, yet so many organizations have no real strategy to deal with it. The issue has to be taken on at board level and security professionals have a huge role to play. ifsecglobal.com 

Retailers must upgrade authentication, encryption and pen testing
The PCI Security Standards Council now requires better authentication, encryption and penetration testing by companies that accept consumer payments, improvements lauded by security experts. "These three recommendations, it is really security-industry standards that are finally being forced upon companies. I would say, absolutely, it will move the bar forward as far as security goes."

"A password alone should not be enough to verify the administrator's identity and grant access to sensitive information," said PCI Security Standards Council Chief Technology Officer Troy Leach in a statement. csoonline.com

FTC, FCC Launch Mobile Security Inquiries

Are Bots Good Or Bad For Online Business?
Think of your website as a garden. When you're in the throes of a hairless caterpillar infestation, you might toy with the idea of blasting your garden with the most potent chemical pesticide available, thereby banishing all insects from your plants. But what about all the beneficial insects? What about bees? Your garden won't thrive without them.

Before you go banishing all bots from your website you need to be aware of just how many good bots there are roaming the internet. Good bots keep search engines operating (and keep your website in those search engine results), power APIs, monitor websites and scan for vulnerabilities, among other duties.

Of the 29% of internet traffic made up of bad bots, a full 24.5% are what's known as impostor bots - malicious bots pretending to be good bots like Googlebots, attempting to take advantage of the access granted to good bots.

Other types of bad bots include scrapers. Scrapers are engineered to steal information like pricing and other original content from websites in order to post it on another website. They tend to run rampant on ecommerce sites. Bad bots are now more likely than ever to successfully pass themselves off as human visitors by mimicking human behavior. This is thanks to an increase in sophistication from the developers behind the bots. lifehacker.com

Customer Shift Towards Electric Money Hampered by Security Concerns
The Global mobile wallet market is expected to be primarily driven by factors such as trending offers and promotional activities by market players, the increasing number of smartphone users and a customer shift towards electronic money. However, the growth in the market is likely to be hampered by factors such as security concerns among consumers, a lack of awareness in emerging markets and government support for cashless transactions and electronic money. The global mobile wallet market is expected to grow between 52% and 53% from 2016 to 2020. businesswire.com

The total for the catalog order should have been $21,832.58. But Bonenfant paid $120, Orlando police said.

Fairfield, CA: Defense Attorney - Use Sale Prices Not Retail
Chrissy Phillips, 37, faces felony grand theft and commercial burglary charges for a Dec. 15, 2015, incident at the Kohl's in Vacaville when she and Simmie Shelton - the man police call the Kohl's Bandit - allegedly stole $1,098 worth of Nike shoes, Nike sweatsuits, hair straightener and Rachael Ray cooking pans. Defense attorney Thomas Healy argued during the preliminary hearing that calculating sale prices for the items meant they didn't reach the $950 threshold for a felony charge. "There are sales going on all the time," he said of Kohl's. He doesn't know anybody who pays regular prices, added Healy, who said a 15 percent discount would involve misdemeanor charges for Phillips. Solano County Superior Court Judge E. Bradley Nelson decided otherwise. "You get the sale price if you pay," Nelson said. dailyrepublic.com

Chesterfield, MO: Sunglass Hut and others hit by Serial Shoplifter
wearing Surgical Mask

A shoplifter wore a surgical mask each time he stole pairs of expensive sunglasses, Chesterfield police said. Surveillance video from early May shows the man enter the Sunglass Hut at St. Louis Premium Outlets in Chesterfield. "One of the employees asked if he could help him, and he mumbled something. They couldn't even understand what he said," Chesterfield Sgt. Keith Rider said. In under two minutes, the man grabbed several pairs of sunglasses and then walked out of the store, without being confronted by anyone. He even left the store wearing a pair of sunglasses. The man is believed to have pulled off a similar theft at the Clarkson Eyecare on Clarkson Road. Chesterfield Police report he stole from three stores in the same month. myinforms.com
