CSO's coming in the future
Driven by the Omni Channel
As retailers continue to see dramatic growth in
e-commerce sales, which eventually will be as important as store sales over the
next twenty years, and as cybercrime continues to grow with it, we will see the
Chief Security Officer role grow in numbers and in importance. As the C-suite's
expectations and time restraints will mandate that one executive be accountable
for all risk, including Loss Prevention.
The necessity for it and
evolution of it may be expedited or at least reinforced by the skyrocketing
e-commerce fraud due to the EMV transition.
As the omni-channeling
efforts that merge both worlds will also lead to the merging of the functions.
Out of absolute necessity.
As reported yesterday, we're beginning to see
the new position of Chief Digital Officer pop up at a number of retailers which
signals the C-suite's focus. And as it becomes more common place eventually
they're going to expect the executive who's responsible for shrink to be able to
manage the entire shrink risk in both worlds. Because they will have merged both
Now, that's not to say the senior LP function's will decrease.
But it will add a new role that the retail industry, for the most part, has
avoided. But the impact of cyber crime, which just appeared this year as one of
the Top concerns of the C-suite, will start the discussions. Just a thought -

Are Mass Shooting Alert
Systems Coming to America?
Earlier this week, the Michigan State
Senate took up a
new bill, the Public Threat Alert System Act, that would allow state police
to tap into emergency alert systems and send radio, television, and text
messages to the public about "clear, persistent, ongoing, and random threats."
Private companies have long employed internal alert systems for such
tragedies, and since 2008, national law has
required federally-funded colleges to send email and text warnings when
attacks occur on campus. But the Michigan bill appears to be the first concrete
effort to implement a dedicated, statewide alert system for shootings that would
be as pervasive as, say, emergency weather alerts. Amid what is essentially a
mass shooting epidemic, this raises the question of whether such systems
could-or should-one day become an inescapable part of American life.
Given the sheer volume of mass gun violence plaguing the country, that one state
is using its own localized nightmare to experiment with a better response
mechanism is not only understandable, but seemingly inevitable. vice.com

Market Trends: Mobile access
control today-where are we?
Access control is one
of those areas in commercial security that just screams for smartphone
For the past five years at least, security software
vendors have been proclaiming a mobile-first strategy, focusing on creating
products that exploit the capabilities of smartphones and tablets. And the
industry has seen some innovations in administrative apps that untether security
managers from their desks.
But the widespread ability to open doors with
smartphones, particularly in large enterprises, has been vexingly slow to gain
traction. A key reason is that people are using a wide range of Android and iOS
devices. Bringing a reader to market that is compatible with all mobile
equipment has proven elusive.

Confronting the insider
Low tech still trumps high tech when it
comes to stopping insider breaches, whether malicious or just careless. But
behavioral analytics can help close the gap.
It is still possible for a
careless or malicious employee to defeat the best security technology an
organization can deploy. But technology is evolving to make it less likely.
"Low tech trumps high tech," he said, noting that most of the technology
designed for security is aimed at, "the nameless, faceless, far-away bad guy,"
not at insiders with legitimate access to company networks.
There are a
number of ways to lower the chances of an insider attack, he said. Indicators

'Friendly fraud': Online retailers are grappling with new forms of
Retailers have long dealt with theft-related fraud at their stores, but
newer forms of digital deception have proliferated in recent years amid
higher online sales and improved security techniques at bricks-and-mortar
Fraud losses as a portion of retailers' online revenue has risen to 1.47 per
cent in 2016 from 1.32 per cent last year and 0.68 per cent in 2014,
according to a report by LexisNexis Risk Solutions. Given the spike
in online fraud, retailers are incurring higher and higher levels of
Last year, $290 billion of sales were returned
in the United States and Canada, according to statistics from The
Retail Equation. An estimated 10 per cent of returns are thought to
be either fraudulent or a misrepresentation of the facts - a fake
receipt or someone returning something bought a year ago instead of
yesterday, says Stephen O'Keefe, a loss prevention specialist with the
Retail Council of Canada.
The buy online and pick up in store model, an option
growing in popularity and offered by retailers such as Canadian Tire, Best
Buy and Loblaw, is particularly vulnerable, according to LexisNexis.
Its 2016 report reveals that 24 per cent of retailers' in-store "shrink"
costs came from buy online and pick up in store transactions.
"It's like a whack-a-mole
game," said Michael LeBlanc, senior vice-president of Marketing and Digital
Retail at the Retail Council of Canada. "If you make it hard to commit fraud
in stores, then (thieves) will look for some other way to commit fraud and
it pops up somewhere else. This non-stop game against fraudsters just
changes its characteristics a bit."
Target Hit With Investor
Suit Over Retreat From Canada
Target Corp. concealed growing problems with its expansion into Canada
leading up to its decision to fire its top Canadian executive and
send its unit in the Great White North into bankruptcy in early 2015,
investors said in a proposed securities class action Tuesday.
Police Retirement System of St. Louis said the company defrauded its
investors with a series of false and misleading statements
reassuring them that things were running smoothly even as its Canadian unit
struggled to get off the ground, according to its suit in Minnesota federal
The company told investors, for example, that it had a
strong supply chain infrastructure and distribution centers system in place,
but that turned out to have been a lie, and Target had extra inventory at
its distribution centers and not enough at retail locations, the police
retirement system said. law360.com

and these retailers may soon find out that arriving in Canada is one thing,
but staying for the long haul is another.

hard way, there are several complexities unique to the Canadian market that
make it far different from opening a store in a new state. Missing the mark
on one or a few of these could create a stumbling block that may be hard to

Phillip Harris is a 49-year-old career criminal with more than 80 arrests on his

medication from Kroger and walk out with a smart aleck grin on his face. He had
no clue that grin and the grip he had on those medicine bottles were all caught
on camera in one of the Mid-South's most sophisticated retail crime-fighting
networks: the Kroger/Shelby County Sheriff's ALERT crime-fighting network.
Kroger's cameras captured Harris taking between $700 and $1,000 of medicine over
three visits. According to Kendall Neal of the Regional Organized Crime
Information Center (ROCIC) in Nashville, between the two-year periods 2008-10
and 2011-13, retail theft cases increased 2.3 percent statewide in Tennessee.
But between those same periods, in areas of Tennessee with crime-fighting
partnerships like the Kroger/Shelby County Sheriff ALERT team, retail theft
dropped an average of nearly eight percent.
Grand Rapids, MI: Four
arrested for Counterfeiting 100+ Credit Cards; Ulta Beauty LP Mgr tipped off
Four people face criminal charges after
being found with more than a hundred counterfeit credit cards and thousands of
dollars in apparently ill-gotten merchandise. Police were tipped off to
suspicious behavior from the suspects by a loss prevention manager for Ulta
Beauty. Authorities say the four suspects had been to three Ulta stores in Kent
County and used multiple credit cards to buy gift cards and merchandise.
Investigators say that when they searched the suspects' vehicle and the Motel 6
where they were staying, they found more than 100 counterfeit or cloned credit
cards bearing various names. Police say they also found thousands of dollars in
merchandise from various stores, some of which looked like it had been prepared
for shipping. Receipts recovered indicated more items had already been shipped

off. Police said they stopped a vehicle matching the description of the
suspects' vehicle nearby on Interstate 80. Police identified the vehicle's three
occupants all of Queens, New York. Police also found nearly $10,000 in clothes
inside the vehicle that the stores reported stolen.

the rental car because a back door was apparently not properly closed and the
child was not restrained in a car seat. Witnesses tell police the male driver
then sped off at a high-rate of speed and tried to get away with the other
female suspect, but police rushed in and stopped the white, four-door Ford
Fusion and its occupants. Paramedics took the baby to the hospital and she's
expected to be okay.

robbers with pump-action shotguns raided a luxury Chanel boutique in central

dollars". Another Chanel boutique on the same street was hit by thieves last

CO: Starbucks got Ripped Off by a man on the phone claiming to be a District
Mgr, was actually calling from inside Jail
Mesa County Jail inmates could face new felony charges after investigators said
the pair appeared to be behind a scam targeting a Clifton Starbucks and a
22-year-old employee. Jerry Davies, 41, and Frank Foster, 20, are accused of
hatching a plan while in jail to make a call to a local store posing as
Starbucks managers investigating passed counterfeit bills, and convincing a
Starbucks employee to hand over thousands of dollars. The man is accused of
calling an accomplice outside the jail, who then reportedly made a three-way
call to the Starbucks. The Inmate told the Starbucks employee that the business
where she worked "had been mismanaged and there were a lot of counterfeit bills
in the store." He told the woman her manager and some coworkers were under
investigation and would be arrested. The man reportedly then told the employee
that he would be conducting an "emergency audit" and asked her whether she knew
how to do a "night drop," the report said. The man allegedly gave the employee a
reference number and said he would send his son to pick up money from the store,
the employee told deputies. The woman got off the phone, and another male - the
suspected accomplice - knocked on the business' door, identified himself as the
other man's son and provided the same reference number, the report said. He
collected the money from the employee and left. Investigators checked the
inmate's phone records and found they were consistent with the Starbucks
employee's version of the story.

Seems like the longer a process goes, the harder it is for everyone to stay
focused on the initial purpose and maintain the enthusiasm as when it began.
Time and difficulty have their impact, but maintaining the passion and
enthusiasm is up to each person. With the last step seemingly the easiest, it is

do not watch out, it could be a step right off the cliff.
