Getting inside criminal minds; Read Hayes makes it his mission to stop shoplifters in their tracks  As part of his research into understanding the criminal mind, he accompanies shoplifters to talk to them about what security measures they notice and how they decide what and whether to steal. Hayes is director of the Loss Prevention Research Council, a consortium of nearly 100 major retailers, security equipment companies and manufacturers, and co-director of the Loss Prevention Research Team in the Florida Survey Research Center at the University of Florida. His work involves research into theft and deterrence measures. Hayes and his team interview about 20 offenders a week, bringing them to stores in Gainesville, North Florida, Georgia and other locations around the nation to see what they notice inside and outside stores that make these stores more or less appealing as targets for theft. The offenders include the "dumb and unlucky" who have been caught and who refer him to other offenders who haven't been caught. Their identities are kept confidential. (Source gainesville.com)

Companies Have Further to Go to Prevent Target-Style Cyberattacks - Vendor Assessments  Companies still have some ways to improve when it comes to assessing the cyber risks their vendors pose, a new survey says. Firms rated the “maturity” of their policies, standards and procedures for managing the cyber risks posed by vendors a 2.9 out of 5 on average. The survey was the first of its kind done by the groups. It had nearly 450 responses, primarily from large firms based in North America. The companies rated their ability to continuously evaluate these risk even lower, giving the vendor cyber risk management program’s tools, measurement and analysis a 2.4 on average. Protiviti Managing Director Rocco Grillo said part of the extensive study showed that “many companies are conducting vendor reviews” but those are not always making their way to senior management. Firms rated their discussions of “results of vendor assessments and metrics with management” 2.4 out of 5. Companies should evaluate the cyber risks associated with their vendors with the same rigor they evaluate their own internal risks, Mr. Grillo said. (Source wsj.com)

Target shoppers mostly stick with chain after data breach - new Bloomberg Poll
Many Target Corp. customers are ready to forgive and forget. Following a data breach over the holiday season that affected millions of shoppers, only 7 percent of customers plan to reduce spending at the chain over the next year, according to a Bloomberg National Poll. The survey, conducted May 8-11, also found that Target’s decision to replace its chief executive officer this month had little effect on consumers’ desire to shop at the chain.

HP's chief ethics and compliance officer says - "Customers generally know data is being collected for security purposes and in general that’s not going to make anyone uncomfortable."  “But if [the customer gets] an ad, then it’s, ‘Wait a minute, what does this have to do with security?’” She said it was important for corporations to maintain standards at a time when law is still developing. “Where the law is not keeping up, you can develop your own accountability,” she said. In a panel discussion last week in San Francisco tech compliance chiefs see privacy as growing concern. (Source wsj.com)

Ten questions every retailer must ask in order to survive
I would strongly argue that it's not just retailers, but any business would do well to develop a Top 10 list of Great Questions. Based on the Chicago Tribune's list, here are my Top 10 for retailers in today's disruptive marketplace:

1. Who, on the executive team or the board, has spoken to a customer recently? - James Champy, author and management expert
2. How likely is it that a customer would recommend our company to a friend or colleague? - Andrew Taylor, executive chairman of Enterprise Holdings
3. Are we relevant? Will we be relevant five years from now? Ten? - Debra Kaye, innovation consultant and author
4. Who uses our product in ways we never expected? - Kevin P. Coyne and Shawn T. Coyne, authors and strategy consultants
5. What one word do we want to own in the minds of our customers, employees, and partners? - Matthew May, author and innovation expert
6. Do we underestimate the customer's journey? - Matt Dixon, author and executive director of research at CEB
7. Do we have the right people on the bus? - Jim Collins, author and management consultant
8. Among our stronger employees, how many see themselves at the company in three years? How many would leave for a 10 percent raise from another company? - Jonathan Rosenberg, advisor to Google management
9. What was the last experiment we ran? [...and what were the measurable results?] - Scott Berkun, author
10. What successful thing are we doing today that may be blinding us to new growth opportunities? - Scott D. Anthony, managing partner, Innosight (Source retailcustomerexperience.com)

Mobile commerce is riskier than standard ecommerce

Mobile commerce is riskier than standard ecommerce, according to more than half of merchants responding to world’s largest annual payments and fraud survey

Annual Kount Mobile Payments and Fraud Survey finds 51% of nearly 2,000 respondents believe the risk of mobile fraud has increased year on year

London, UK – 14 May 2014 – One in ten retailers expect most of their online sales to come via a mobile device by the end of 2014, according to the IMRG.1 However the number of organisations believing the mobile channel is riskier than standard ecommerce has increased by 20% year on year, according to new findings from the Kount Mobile Payments and Fraud Survey, released today.

The mobile channel is still evolving in terms of its perception and the level of importance it has within any given business, but there are certain industries that view mobile as far riskier than others. When asked if mobile was riskier than standard ecommerce, the following sectors were most concerned: money movement (33%), travel (25%) and financial services (21%), who reported that it was ‘far riskier’ than the previous year.

Across 24 industries, those who felt mobile fraud was less risky than standard ecommerce were confined to single figures (0% - 8%), with the exception of dating/social sites, with 29% believing it was actually less risky. 21 industries overwhelmingly demonstrated more concern for mobile fraud than in standard ecommerce.

This perception has led to an increase in merchants who think the mobile channel needs specific fraud tools, almost doubling (from 17% to 32%) year on year. The problem facing merchants is how to balance fast payment processing with a fraud prevention solution that provides security and reliability.

“Fraud prevention should be specific to what you need,” said Don Bush, Vice President of Marketing at Kount. “Mobile is not yet a settled channel, but a fraud protection strategy should be. One thing that is crucial for mobile, alongside the most powerful fraud prevention on the market, is speed. Consumers are increasingly demanding a near real-time purchase, irrespective of device, and this level of demand needs to be matched by a trusted one-stop shop solution that doesn’t compromise on security.”

Respondents have previously found the difficulty consumers have transacting on mobile devices to be the biggest obstacle to mobile adoption. This year, however, there is much more focus on security and fraud. The share of respondents who cited “Making it easier to transact” as the biggest obstacle fell from 36% to 28%, while the number of respondents who believe the biggest obstacles are “Addressing how to manage fraud risk” and “Addressing consumer security concerns” each grew by more than 40%.

“E-commerce in particular depends so much on the level of trust that the consumer has in your user-friendly interface and fast, secure back-end technology to automate and simplify the process. The fact is that fraud follows opportunity, and there may be no greater opportunity for fraud today than in mobile,” continued Bush. “As a relatively new platform that continues to drive deeper into new and existing markets, mobile’s potential is still being unlocked, whether it’s for communications, banking and payments, retail, gaming, social media or more. It’s an incredibly exciting time for the industry, but there will always be those who try to take advantage of security holes in order to defraud legitimate businesses and customers.” (Source kount.com)

The real life Bling Ring: Underground network of Young Shoplifters detailing shoplifting schemes on Tumblr  An online community of shoplifting bloggers who brag about their 'hauls' and exchange advice on how best to steal from stores has been exposed, with the network quickly dubbed 'the internet's Bling Ring'. The once-under-the-radar 'lifters' - who have been likened to the seven L.A. teens who were charged for stealing from celebrity homes and immortalized in Sofia Coppola's Bling Ring - blog anonymously under names like Klepto Princess and Cash or Card and use hashtags such as #lifting and #fivefingerdiscount to link in with each other. The group were outed by a fellow blogger called We-unhallowed, who noticed the trend quietly percolating on Tumblr and decided to publish a list of the screen names involved. Before the lid was lifted on what they were doing, members of the network would share methods and stories with each other on how they steal, such as how to remove security tags using magnets and hooks, as well as what stores were easier than others. Tumblr said they have no guidelines when it comes to posting shoplifting, but said they would cooperate should there be an investigation. 'Posts depicting potentially illegal activity may not, in and of themselves, violate our policies,' a spokesperson told Jezebel. Many of the Tumblr sites have shut since the list was made public on Wednesday, out of fear that, like the Bling Ring of burglars, they would be caught. (Source dailymail.co.uk)

Today’s post presents evidence that among the ID theft service’s clients was an identity theft and credit card fraud ring of at least 32 people who were arrested last year for allegedly using the information to steal millions from more than 1,000 victims across the country.

Anne Arundel Police officials said about 100 personnel took part, including patrol officers, fire EMS, 911 dispatch and a fire-and-police command post outside the mall. (Source baltimoresun.com)

Robbery Suspect Killed after Police Track him with GPS Decoy Pill Bottle
Relying on a GPS device placed in a decoy pill bottle, police officers tracked an armed man suspected of robbing a pharmacy on Friday afternoon and fatally shot him during a confrontation on the Upper East Side, police officials said. The decoy bottle was among a cache of drugs taken in an armed robbery about 1:30 p.m. from HealthSource Pharmacy. The suspect, identified by the police as Scott Kato, 45, of Mount Vernon, N.Y., was believed to have robbed pharmacies in New York City on at least four occasions since 2011, three times at the HealthSource drugstore. The police official said the GPS device helped lead the police to the man, who was confronted as his 2007 Jeep was stuck in traffic on a service road beneath the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive at East 96th Street. As officers closed in, the man pointed a handgun in the direction of at least one of the officers; one or more of the officers opened fire, killing the man, the police said. The episode is the first known case in New York City in which a decoy bottle helped the police identify a suspect after a pharmacy robbery. (Source nytimes.com)

Indiana trying to pass ORC legislation
With all of the states surrounding Indiana having ORC laws authorities say their ORC is spiking because the criminals know the punishment is less. To combat the trend, he said the Indiana Retail Organized Crime Coalition is working with state lawmakers and county prosecutors to pass legislation that would make boosting a more severe crime. The goal is to strip some of the low-risk, high-reward appeal. The 2013 National Retail Federation survey lists 28 states that have passed or enacted legislation related to organized retail crime, including all of the states surrounding Indiana. That's our golden goose right there," Thompson said of the legislation. "We're looking at the language in the (organized retail crime) laws of our bordering states to draft legislation for Indiana, and we hope to have it introduced in time of the next legislative session." The tougher state laws help, said Mellor of the National Retail Federation. But the patchwork of state-by-state laws motivates thieves to cross state lines in search of less severe punishment should they get caught. With Indiana being surrounded by states with organized retail crime laws, criminals in the Midwest could be drawn to the Hoosier state.  The National Retail Federation has been lobbying for organized retail crime to be defined as a federal crime with appropriate sentencing guidelines.  "We've been advocating for a number of years, so the federal lawmakers are tuned into it ,and they know how serious it is," Mellor said. "The problem is they have other priorities, and we just keep trying to get on the priority list." (Source indystar.com)

Tucson police create team to go after serial - ORC offenders  Two detectives and 24 plainclothes officers are working stores where shoplifters strike most to build felony cases against repeat thieves, said Capt. Paul Sayre of the property crimes division. Some of the officers are working undercover in hopes of catching habitual offenders in the act. Steady growth in shoplifting, along with the realization that many thieves were hitting stores over and over, resulted in the concentrated effort involving police, the business community and prosecutors. It is really important that Tucson police, the city and county prosecutors work closely together in a coordinated effort on this issue that is significantly impacting our community,” said Baird Greene, deputy city attorney of the criminal division. He said each group plays a role in making solid cases so offenders are locked up, rather than repeatedly receiving probation or being referred to diversion programs. Also, by targeting shoplifters police expect a drop in violent crimes because some of the thieves are tied to burglaries, robberies and carjackings. Last year there were nearly 15,000 shoplifting incidents in the city, police records show. That’s up from about 12,500 in 2012. The state’s Organized Retail Crime Association meets monthly and works with law enforcement to make a dent in thefts. Retailers are losing millions of dollars each year,” said Carlos Estrada, loss-prevention manager for the Arizona Division of Circle K Stores and a founding member of the state association’s Southern Arizona Chapter. “When the bad guys take our product, it hurts all of us and minimizes our government because of the loss in tax revenue. There are groups that hit stores in Phoenix, along the Interstate 10 corridor, and in Tucson — and on their return trip to Phoenix, they do the same thing.” (Source azstarnet.com)

Fraudster gets 4-year sentence for credit card scheme in Newfoundland, Ca. Mouneimneh, along with his partner in the scheme Michael Soliman, arrived by ferry the province in February and proceeded to use stolen or fake credit cards to buy gift cards or prepaid credit cards, allowing them to steal thousands of dollars from individuals and retailers. He committed the crimes in this province while out on a conditional sentence from Quebec for similar crimes. There is also an ongoing investigation by police in Edmunston, New Brunswick. Chalker said the fact that Mouneimneh shipped the cards from province to province and owned a machine to perform the fraud meant his intention was clear. (Source cbc.ca)

Interacting in large networking groups can be very challenging even for the most seasoned of executives. The speed, the number of people, and the amount of information shared can be overwhelming. However, the one basic principal you can rely on is keep it simple, one person at a time and focus on that person both mentally and visually. Slow it down in your head and make sure you communicate clearly and sincerely regardless of the background you have with anyone or any group. Because at the end of the day you're all part of the same industry, the same community, and everyone has the same objective; to help develop and represent the industry as professionals.
