News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
Walmart Canada cuts 750 jobs in management restructuring - 1,300 promotions - 200 store managers added  Wal-Mart Canada has confirmed it laid off hundreds of employees across the country earlier this month in a move to rework its management structure. The Arkansas-based retailer said it eliminated 750 jobs — which is says represented less than one per cent of staff — after testing a new management structure in select stores. As part of the changes, Wal-Mart Canada says 1,300 associates were promoted to more senior roles and about 200 store managers were added. “The new management structure makes more of our associates available during peak shopping periods when our customers need us the most,” Wal-Mart spokesman Alex Roberton said. Wal-Mart entered Canada 20 years ago with the acquisition of 122 Woolco stores and since then the company has more than tripled in size. In 2012, it announced an expansion plan that was valued at $750 million. (Source theglobeandmail.com)

eBay to face formal investigations over data breach
Attorneys general in three states in the US are looking into the hack, and an official in the UK is considering a formal probe. The online auction site revealed Wednesday that hackers had penetrated its corporate network and compromised the credentials of its users. As a result, the company has urged all users of the site to change their passwords. Reacting to the news, the attorneys general of Connecticut, Florida, and Illinois will launch a joint investigation, Jaclyn Falkowski, a spokeswoman for Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen, told CNET.

Another eBay flaw could be used to hijack accounts, researcher says - A 2nd Round of Data Breaches?  A security researcher who found a major vulnerability in eBay's website last week said a second flaw he found hasn't been fixed and could be used to hijack user accounts. Jordan Lee Jones, a 19-year-old college student who lives in Stockton-on-Tees, U.K, said he notified eBay on Friday by email of the second vulnerability. It hadn't been fixed as of Monday, so he decided to publish details of it on his blog. The second vulnerability Jones found is a cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw, where code from another source is executed within a website. He said the flaw could be used to grab cookies from logged-in eBay users who visit a page that has been injected with the attack code. The cookie would be emailed to the attacker, Jones said.

FDA, along with other federal and international agencies, cracks down on illegal Internet pharmacies - seizing 19,618 packages of illegal medicines - 1,975 sites identified by U.S.  The Food and Drug Administration, in partnership with other federal and international agencies, took action this week against websites that sell potentially dangerous, unapproved prescription drugs to U.S. consumers. The FDA and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection also conducted extensive examinations at U.S.-based international mail facilities, where many packages containing prescription drugs enter the U.S., and found that most of the examined packages contained illegal prescription drugs that had been ordered from online sources. These actions took place in support of the 7th annual International Internet Week of Action — May 13 to May 20, 2014 — sponsored by Interpol, and also known as Operation Pangea VII. During Operation Pangea VII, law enforcement, customs and regulatory authorities from 111 countries collaborated to identify the makers and distributors of illegal drug products and medical devices that used the Internet to sell their products and remove these products from the supply chain. Operation Pangea VII‘s coordinated efforts at mail facilities resulted in the detention or seizure of 19,618 packages containing medicines purportedly from Australia, the U.K., New Zealand and Canada. The FDA and the CBP inspected packages at the mail facilities in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, and detained or seized 583 packages. The FDA also notified internet service providers, domain name registrars and related organizations that 1,975 websites were selling products in violation of U.S. law. (Source drugstorenews.com)

Cyber security standards being developed by National Institute of Standards and Technology  The National Institute of Standards and Technology is developing new cybersecurity standards based on the same principles engineers use to build bridges and jetliners.

Global Cybercriminal Operation Uncovered: 1,500 POS terminals in 36 countries infected with malware  Security researchers uncovered a global cybercriminal operation that infected with malware almost 1,500 point-of-sale (POS) terminals, accounting systems and other retail back-office platforms from businesses in 36 countries. The infected systems were joined together in a botnet that researchers from cybercrime intelligence firm IntelCrawler dubbed Nemanja. The researchers believe the attackers behind the operation might be from Serbia. The size of the botnet and the worldwide distribution of infected systems brings into perspective the security problems faced by retailers from around the world, problems that were also highlighted by the recent PoS breaches at several large U.S. retailers.

NFC-based seal tracks counterfeit booze
Two European companies have partnered to tackle the growing problem of fraudulent refilling of high-end wine and spirits bottles using a seal system based on near field communication chips. French embedded security vendor Inside Secure and Belgian object identity verification provider Selinko developed the technology. It allows wine and spirits consumers, distributors and sellers to use NFC-capable smartphones and other mobile devices to verify that bottles haven't been tampered with along the supply chain before they are purchased. The new system is called CapSeal and has two components: an NFC chip embedded into the protective covering, or "capsule," that seals the bottle, and a mobile application developed by Selinko to authenticate the chip. The tag deactivates if the capsule is removed or tampered with. (Source csoonline.com)

Survival of the Fittest, New Formats Drive Retail Developers
With attendance at last week’s ReCon convention here reaching a record high of 33,500 — a number not seen since before the recession — the industry’s mood is relatively buoyant, as long as the focus is on so-called “A” malls. Lesser properties, however, have their backs against the wall as retailers such as Sears Holdings Corp., Best Buy, Barnes & Noble and J.C. Penney Co. Inc. close stores, and a string of other chains go bankrupt. Many mall operators are selling their underperforming properties. For example, Macerich sold 13 centers in the last 18 months, said Robert Perlmutter, executive vice president of leasing, adding, “They were in smaller markets and were lower-growth assets.” Even as B-, C and D malls struggle, developers are envisioning a slew of mixed-used projects in urban and ex-urban areas and shopping center expansions and even are reactivating several major projects that had been stalled. CityCenterDC in Washington is an example. The 10-acre project is five blocks from the White House and will include 265,000 square feet of retail space as well as residential and condominium units, office space and a hotel. The center will open in November with 50 percent of the retailers in place. The remainder will bow in the spring. (Source wwd.com)

Americans Are More Afraid Of Credit Card Fraud Than Of Terrorism 
What are you afraid of? That's the question that information technology company Unisys aims to answer in the 2014 installment of its annual security index, which measures eight major concerns of U.S. citizens in four areas: national, financial, internet, and personal security. This year, credit card security tops the list, which may not be too surprising when you consider the hysteria surrounding the Heartbleed Bug. In fact, Americans are more concerned about technological threats than they are about physical ones, like war or terrorism. Read the whole infographic here. (Source businessinsider.com)

E-retailers are too lax with password security
Even though the Heartbleed bug recently had e-retailer’s hearts racing with anxiety, several Top 500 e-retailers still have lax password requirements, a study from password management company Dashlane found. The Heartbleed bug opened up e-commerce sites to hackers who could have stolen credit card numbers and personal consumer data. Despite the increased focus on security following the bug’s discovery, most of the e-retailers in the new study did not have adequate password security. Dashlane analyzed 22 password criteria for 80 of the web’s most popular web sites, including those operated by Apple Inc., Target Corp., Google Inc.’s Gmail, Craigslist and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. The firm assigned a positive or negative value to each of those criteria and awarded each site a score on a possible scale of -100 to +100. A score of +50 was considered the minimum for good password practices. Dashlane has a few requirements for what it considers good password hygiene: Passwords should have a minimum of eight characters and be alphanumeric and case-sensitive. A site should not accept the 10 worst passwords on the web, including ones like “abc123,” “password” and “monkey.” Users should be required to confirm a password change via e-mail and should not be allowed to log in after 10 failed attempts.

What’s Driving Mobile Commerce Growth?
According to a Forrester study released earlier this week, m-commerce is expected to nearly double in four years, largely driven by consumers using tablets. Currently, those devices are the more popular shopping tool that consumers use, with $76 billion of transactions occurring on tablets this year, compared to $38 billion on smartphones. Sucharita Mulpuru was a lead analyst behind the Forrester study, and explained in the report that U.S. consumers quickly incorporating mobile devices into their everyday use is one of the main reasons behind the projected increase in m-commerce. While not all American’s who own a tablet or smartphone are necessarily shopping online with them, Mulpuru said that number will also increase over the next four years. (Source pymnts.com)

7-Eleven Clerk Made Heroic Rescue of Isla Vista Shooting Victim; Man helped injured woman to safety during shootout  Jorge Anaya was behind the counter at this 7-Eleven store in Isla Vista Friday night when he heard what he thought was fireworks but he soon learned it was a hail of gunshots outside of his store. "After that I tried to get as many people as I could inside, and I peaked out and that's when I saw an officer running outside," said Anaya. He threw open the door and saw a victim on the sidewalk about 40 feet away on El Embarcadero Street. Then he saw the victim he now knows as Megan, by a street light, wounded down the block from the 7-Eleven front door. Anaya heard more shots as he went to rescue the victim. Nearby sheriff's deputies were in a violent running gun battle with a drive by shooting suspect. For Anaya, his focus was on the wounded woman nearby. "She was looking at her leg the whole time and asked me 'am I bleeding?' I tried to not panic her. I said just come with me to the store," said Anaya. He had his arm around her and she was limping as she made it into the store where others quickly helped to apply pressure to the wound. (Source keyt.com)

Checkpoint Systems Launches Next Generation of EAS Solutions

New EVOLVE iRange Offers Complete Solution to Retailers’ Merchandise Availability and Customer Satisfaction Challenges

THOROFARE, N.J. – May 27, 2014 – Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced the launch of the next generation of intelligent electronic article surveillance (EAS) solutions.

The EVOLVE iRange, developed alongside global retailers, comprises six different state-of-the-art EAS antennas, a broad range of EAS labels designed for visible and source-tagging application to various types of merchandise, and the Counterpoint iD deactivation unit for faster and consistent deactivation at point-of-sale (POS).

Together, the portfolio promises to deter theft from potential shoplifters, a high degree of confidence that protected merchandise has been deactivated efficiently to avoid unpleasant false alarms for honest shoppers, and security that the antenna alarms are indeed shoplifting attempts so store personnel can respond appropriately. Initial tests have resulted in increased product availability at test stores, improved in-store efficiency at the POS and an increase in positive attitudes towards the shopping experience for consumers.

EAS Jammer detection technology is one of the latest additions to the EVOLVE iRange. Integrated into antennas within the portfolio, the system identifies if an EAS ‘jammer’ has been brought into the store and activates an alarm, which alerts staff to the potential threat. This acts as a strong deterrent for possible shoplifters and organized retail crime members, resulting in abandoning the shoplifting attempt.

A wide selection of new visible labeling solutions is also now available to deter potential thieves and enable retailers to keep their merchandise safely on display and on the shelf available for purchase. The Micro range – which includes the new EP Clear Micro Tamper Tag, one of the world’s smallest tamper tags – can act as a visible yet discreet deterrent to shoplifters when placed on the outside of packaging. Of great importance to retailers and consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers was the fact that the new tamper tag is so small it can be applied without obscuring any vital product information on the packaging. This technological innovation would not be possible without the latest developments in detection and deactivation, allowing the tiny footprint of Micro range of labels to deter, deactivate and detect better than ever before. This also enables retailers and CPGs to protect a wider range of products and increase their on-shelf availability.

Another important innovation developed with partner retailers is realized with Counterpoint iD. This POS deactivation solution offers high-speed deactivation – for tags and labels of all sizes - at a lower energy consumption rate than previously possible. This in itself will reduce energy costs that will quickly pay for the system. By delivering secure, rapid and guaranteed deactivation at the POS, retailers are able to improve in-store efficiency with faster point of sales transactions, increasing the overall consumer shopping experience.

Ensuring with a high degree of confidence that antenna alarms are indeed shoplifting attempts has historically been a problem for retailers. Through superior built-in electronics, the new state-of-the-art antennas in the Evolve iRange are able to offer retail stores enhanced detection capabilities, whatever the size or position of the EAS label. When used in conjunction with the Micro range of labels, the combined system is able to reduce store shrinkage by 30% in field tests. The resulting reduction in out-of-stocks and increased merchandise availability also increased sales by an average of 10%.

Farrokh Abadi, president & COO, Merchandise Availability Solutions at Checkpoint Systems, commented, “Having the right product available in the right place at the right time is essential for retailers seeking to enhance the in-store shopping experience and increase sales. In order to do this, retailers need to have a complete solution in place to deter theft, deactivate merchandise and detect stolen items quickly and efficiently. Years of research, development and experience have been packed into our new EVOLVE iRange to make it the most complete EAS solution we’ve ever produced – and the figures prove that it actually works.”

Interested parties can contact local Checkpoint offices regarding availability for these solutions.

The difference between success and failure is in the planning and the execution. Taking something from a thought or idea to a reality can be a long and painful process lined with failures and detractors. But a great idea is only as good as the plan you have to bring it to life and the execution everyone delivers to give it a life. Because without the two the great idea never existed. As one "C" level executive once told me - He never saw a bad great idea as it was always the failed plan to roll it out and the poor execution that killed it.
