LexisNexis 2016 True Cost of Fraud
Volume of Fraud Up Sharply

Our annual LexisNexis True Cost of Fraud study offers important insights into the profound effects of fraud on merchants, consumers and financial institutions. It establishes the actual cost of fraud as witnessed by merchants and provides key findings and specific recommendations for the industry.
The study includes a survey of over 1,000 risk and fraud executives in ecommerce and multichannel retail organizations, and details current trends in retail fraud and the effects these have on the ability of merchants of all sizes to prevent and catch fraudulent transactions.

A central feature of the report, the LexisNexis Fraud Multiplier, estimates the total amount of loss a merchant incurs, based on the actual dollar value of a fraudulent transaction. This year, every dollar of fraud cost merchants $2.40, up from $2.23 a year ago, according to the Fraud Multiplier tool. Also, the report finds that the volume of fraud has risen sharply in the last year-from a monthly average of 156 to 206 successful fraudulent transactions, and from 177 to 236 prevented fraudulent transactions-while the level of fraud as a percentage of revenues has also inched upward from 1.32 percent to 1.47 percent.

AutoZone's $5.7M Deal In Illegal Credit Check Suit Gets Tentative OK
A California federal judge on Monday tentatively approved AutoZone's agreement to pay $5.7 million to end claims the company illegally ran credit checks on 200,000 prospective employees.

The deal, which would see the auto parts retailer pay out $20 in cash or $40 in gift cards to class members to resolve allegations that it violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act in running background checks on potential hires.

The retailer was violating the law by failing to disclose to potential hires, in a separate document, that it was running the checks, instead embedding its pre-authorization form as a window within a multi-page online employment application chock full of other information, according to the complaint.

Monday's ruling came just days after AutoZone urged a different California federal judge to decertify another large class of workers represented by Capstone Law in a suit filed by workers alleging they were regularly denied breaks, arguing their alleged experiences are too varied and that there are no records showing whether the class members did or did not take breaks.  law360.com

GMA, Battelle Launch Tool To Fight Food Fraud
To help combat food fraud in products, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and Battelle, a research and development firm, have partnered to provide EMAlert, a secure and intuitive web-based software tool that allows food manufacturers to rapidly analyze and understand their individual, company-specific vulnerabilities in the manufacturing process.

Some reports estimate that food fraud costs the world economy $49 billion annually, and it has been estimated that about 10 percent of the food we buy is likely adulterated.

EMAlert also provides manufacturers with a resource to assist with meeting the requirements of the FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Human Food rule.

Compliance dates for some businesses begin in September 2016 and require covered facilities to establish and implement a food safety system that includes an evaluation of hazards that may be introduced for economic gain. theshelbyreport.com
New York Attorney General Accuses Domino's of Wage Theft in Lawsuit
NY AG focused on franchisees now

The system, as outlined in a lawsuit filed by the New York State attorney general, was as simple as it was flawed. A pizza is ordered from Domino's. A pizza is made. A pizza is delivered. The workers who assembled and delivered the pie clock their hours on a computer system, and those workers are then paid.

But for years, according to the lawsuit against the corporate franchiser that owns Domino's Pizza, the computer system used by franchises across the state systematically undercounted hours worked by employees, shortchanging them hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This one directly targets the corporate franchiser. If the state wins, Mr. Schneiderman hopes the case sets a precedent that makes it harder for corporations that run franchise businesses to avoid responsibility for the actions taken by the stores under their corporate umbrella.

Across the country, lawsuits involving wage theft have been on the rise. Broadly defined, wage theft involves employers violating minimum-wage and overtime laws and not counting work hours, and management wrongfully taking employees' tips.

But the new case being brought by Mr. Schneiderman seeks to hold the corporate franchiser, Domino's Pizza L.L.C., responsible. It accuses the company of forcing franchisees to use a computer accounting system even though it was aware it was flawed.

In a statement, Domino's defended its conduct, saying that it had worked with the attorney general's office for more than three years and calling the lawsuit baseless.  nytimes.com

Bratton's "precision-policing" plan may need sharpening
Earlier this month he described his "precision policing" approach as "fewer arrests for minor offenses-'broken windows' types of offenses-while at the same time more significant numbers of arrests for the serious crimes that we're focusing on." Collars for major crimes are up, he said.

Yet, clearly, the commissioner knows that the public cares as much about quality-of-life infractions, which may explain why Bratton last week presided over a ceremonial crushing of dozens of illegal dirt bikes, calling their riders "nitwits and knuckleheads." He has also cracked down on scammers who sell tourists fake ferry tickets to the Statue of Liberty, and has put subway acrobats on notice.

The trick for the commissioner and his boss, Mayor Bill de Blasio, will be to avoid alienating the mayor's African-American voter base by repeating the mistakes of stop-and-frisk, which created a political maelstrom during the Bloomberg administration for its profiling of young men of color.

While he's calling it precision policing, his scalpel may need to be more finely tuned in order to avoid people who don't deserve to be in the [criminal justice] system," said John Jay College professor Delores Jones-Brown.  crainsnewyork.com

Officials: Hurricane Season Coming, Get Ready Now
This year's season, from June 1 through Nov. 30, could be more active than those the past couple of years. That was the message federal, state and local emergency planners delivered last week during Hurricane Preparedness Week.

Hurricane researchers predict this year's tropical storm season could generate a dozen named storms, five hurricanes and two major hurricanes in the Atlantic basin, close to the historic average.  emergencymgmt.com

Meet the next generation of store associate
MasterCard is unveiling the first commerce applications for "Pepper," a new humanoid robot from Softbank Robotics. The app will be powered by the MasterCard MasterPass digital payment service. Pizza Hut Restaurants Asia P/L will be the inaugural launch partner, with an in-store pilot expected by the end of 2016, but it stands to reason Pepper will make his way to North America if Asian consumer response is positive.

Pizza Hut Asia will be piloting Pepper for order-taking and personalized service. A consumer will be able to initiate an engagement by greeting Pepper and pairing the consumer's MasterPass account by either tapping the Pepper icon within the wallet or by scanning a QR code on the tablet that the robot holds.

Within the U.S., Lowe's has been running a robotic pilot at its Orchard Supply Hardware subsidiary. Robots assist customers in finding specific products and obtaining real-time information on promotions and inventory levels. They also remotely connect with expert employees to answer project questions.

It is too early to say for sure exactly how robotic associates will fit into the store of the future, or whether they will mostly or totally displace human workers. But it is nearly certain that a customer visiting a store in 2026 will interact with fewer people and more machines than they do in 2016.  chainstoreage.com

What's Your Cybersecurity Plan?
With the hacktivist group Anonymous planning a cyber attack on global financial systems, now's the time to revisit your cybersecurity strategy.

Hacktivist group Anonymous posted a YouTube video statement that it was embarking on a 30-day cyberattack called "Operation Icarus," in which it would target numerous financial organizations. "We will be holding down PayPal, MasterCard, VISA, NASDAQ, Bank for International Settlements, all central banks, IMF, London Stock Exchange, and every major banking system," according to a spokesperson for the group.

Electronic Payments Coalition Responds to Walmart's PIN Requirement Law Suit
"Walmart's Focus on PIN in Card Debate Is Misguided"

There is an old saying by Mark Twain, "Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story, unless you can't think of anything better." Recently, Walmart filed a lawsuit against Visa complaining the company won't let it require PINs on transactions made with chip-enabled debit cards.

"PIN is the only truly secure form of cardholder verification in the marketplace today, and it offers superior security to our customers," Walmart said in a statement. "This suit is about protecting our customers' bank accounts when they use their debit cards at Walmart."

Of course, we all agree that customers should have the safest electronic transaction experience possible. However, a PIN mandate will not prevent online or mobile fraud. If a PIN is stolen from a retailer's system, it is possible that a criminal could access the customer's entire account and commit fraud.  americanbanker.com

Orgs Turn Blind Eye to Risky Employee Behavior
55% Experience Security Incident Due to Employees

While employee-related security risks are the No.1 concern for security professionals, organizations are not taking adequate steps to prevent negligent employee behavior.

That's the word from a study by Experian Data Breach Resolution and Ponemon Institute, Managing Insider Risk Through Training & Culture, which found that the concern is well-founded: More than half (55%) of companies surveyed have already experienced a security incident due to a malicious or negligent employee.

Alarmingly, a full 60% of companies surveyed believe that their employees are not knowledgeable or have no knowledge of the company's security risks-despite investment in employee training (and other efforts to reduce careless behavior in the handling of sensitive and confidential information.

Additionally, the study showed a lack of concern by C-suite executives. Only 35% of respondents said that senior management sees it as a priority that employees are knowledgeable about how data security risks affect their organization. This illustrates a clear gap between companies' awareness of the issues caused by employee negligence and their actions. infosecurity-magazine.com

Just 22% of IT Leaders Think Their Org is 'Very Well Prepared'
to Deal with Cyber-attacks

As little as one in five (22%) IT leaders believe their organization is 'very well prepared' to identify and respond to cyber attacks, according to new research by Harvey Nash and KPMG.

The report also revealed substantial concerns about a lack of skills among employees, with 65% of respondents saying skills shortages are preventing them from keeping up with the pace of change in technology.

Lastly, in terms of the cloud, the research discovered over a third of respondents are looking to significantly invest in cloud services this year, but almost half report data loss and privacy risks as the biggest challenge when it comes to adopting cloud technology. infosecurity-magazine.com

Breach Victims Say B&N Wrong On Spokeo's Impact
A proposed group of book buyers who claim harm from a Barnes & Noble Inc. data breach told an Illinois federal judge Friday the retailer wrongly concludes the U.S. Supreme Court's recent Spokeo decision supports dismissal for lack of concrete injury, saying the ruling actually cuts the other way. law360.com

Security Remains Prime Barrier to Cloud Adoption
These fears are led by general security concerns (53%, up from 45% in last year's survey), legal and regulatory compliance concerns (42%, up from 29%), and data loss and leakage risks (40%). The rise in specific concerns about compliance and integration suggests that companies are moving from theoretical exploration of cloud models to actual implementation.

The report also found that unauthorized access through misuse of employee credentials and improper access controls is the single biggest threat (53%) to cloud security. infosecurity-magazine.com

Bot attacks hit record high of 311 million in just 90 days
Although around for some time, botnet attacks have become more complex, sophisticated and harder to predict than ever before. In many cases, they are mirroring the activity of normal consumers transacting online - be that banking or online shopping.

This is making it increasingly difficult for businesses to distinguish between real customers and cybercriminals, and leading to millions, if not billions, of pounds of lost business in the UK. The UK, alongside Germany and the US, remains one of the most attacked nations in the world.

How are these armies created? When fraudsters get a new list of user credentials from the dark web, they launch a series of massive credential testing sessions that cause huge transaction spikes over a couple of days. Once a successful hit is made, those curated lists of known password and login combinations are taken to other sites to launch slower velocity attacks, which are harder to detect. A staggering 264 million attacks were detected specifically across e-commerce merchants in this last quarter alone, putting online shoppers and retailers hugely at risk of a serious breach. information-age.com

MasterCard 'Simplifies' SMB Fraud Prevention
Today, MasterCard launched Simplify Controls, a fraud prevention tool that will help SMB owners control, prevent and monitor eCommerce transactions in real time. Simplify Controls allows SMBs to have real-time access to important transaction data wherever they may be, via a mobile app and dashboard. That dashboard, as the name implies, allows the merchant to customize their fraud settings, including transaction size, country of origin and repeat transactions. That means that merchants can set up the system to auto-decline transactions that match their risk profile or manually decide based on criteria that they establish in advance. pymnts.com

Help Your Team Reinvent Themselves

Three foundational beliefs of wise leaders:

#1. Past performance reflects future performance, apart from intervention.

People tend to stay the same.

Teammates who rose to past challenges tend to rise in the future. Timid teammates remain timid; bold continuing being bold.

Misplaced faith delays corrective action and prolongs disappointment. Until you can point to specific reasons things will change, expect things to remain the same.

When contemplating the future, ask yourself, "What specifically makes you believe things will be different?"

"Hope that blinds leaders to poor performance prolongs poor performance."

#2. Past growth reflects future growth, apart from intervention.

Teammates who developed themselves in the past will continue developing. (The only development is self-development. Create opportunities and environments where people step into their own development.)

"Stagnant team members tend to remain stagnant."

#3. Trajectory changes after intervention, not before.

"The thing that changes people is other people."

Intervention is the only thing that changes someone's trajectory.

Ten ways to help others change trajectory:

1. Stop making excuses for people. Protecting people validates and congeals their past.
2. Understand and align with people's dreams and aspirations for themselves.
3. Ignite desire by creating dissatisfaction. "What if you're selling yourself short?"
4. Invite people to do things with you.
5. Confront negative patterns.
6. Press for improvement.
7. Offer new challenges.
8. Involve others. People learn and grow in community.
9. Ask, "How might you challenge yourself in new ways?"
10. Provide a safety net.   leadershipfreak.wordpress.com

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.

Just a Thought,
