Upcoming Series Starts in July
Top 10 Women in Retail Loss Prevention

For a number of years now the NRF's Women in LP Caucus has done a great job of mentoring and providing guidance for the women in retail loss prevention. With a growing membership and a strong cross section of retailers represented, we at the Daily want to highlight and recognize these leaders who are paving the way for future generations.

Starting in July, we'll be publishing ten executive profiles, their comments, advice, and learn a little about the hurdles they faced on their way up to a top job in the industry. It's their journeys that everyone can learn from.

In an attempt to be all inclusive and truly reflect the leaders and influencers of retail Loss Prevention, we'll be including five retail seniors and five solution providers, as it takes a team to truly deliver the best results.

Stay tuned as we'll be making more announcements before NRF Protect. To learn more about the Women in LP Caucus watch LPNN's Episode with Joan Mason, VP of LP, Benefits, Payroll & Legal for the Container Store and Chair of the NRF's Women in Loss Prevention Caucus Committee.  

Huawei's Culture of Theft
Huawei's Yearslong Rise Is Littered With Accusations of Theft & Dubious Ethics

WSJ Article Details Years of Intellectual Property Theft Dating Back to 2004 at Chicago Trade Show

Chinese giant says it respects intellectual property rights, but competitors and some of its own former employees allege company goes to great lengths to steal trade secrets.

Along the way, Huawei has been dogged by allegations that its gains came on the back of copying and theft. A review of 10 cases in U.S. federal courts, and dozens of interviews with U.S. officials, former employees, competitors, and collaborators suggest Huawei had a corporate culture that blurred the boundary between competitive achievement and ethically dubious methods of pursuing it.

Huawei's accusers describe a wide-ranging, brazen, and opportunistic appetite: the targets of the alleged thefts range from longtime tech peers, including Cisco Technology Inc., and T-Mobile US Inc., to a musician in Seattle barely making minimum wage in his day job. In one case, a relative of Huawei's founder Ren Zhengfei who worked at Motorola Inc. is alleged to have brought secret details of the U.S. company's technology to a meeting in Beijing. Another suit alleges complicity by Huawei deputy chairman Eric Xu in secrets theft.

Editor's Note: With emotions running high and Trumps trade war threatening to impact all of us in every industry, especially in retail, I was questioning the validity of all of the accusations. But after reading this article from an author who's been following and working with them directly there appears to be no doubt that an outright blatant culture of 'get it at any cost' exists at Huawei, starting at the very top.

The problem is they are the world leader in 5G and this threatens it's roll-out in the US.

JCP Shrink Improving - Down 13% in 2018 & 16% in Q1
JCP CEO Jill Soltau: 'There's no silver bullet,' & turnaround will take time
Puts Shrink Reduction in Top 6 Priorities

It's been her experience in turnarounds, she said, that "things can get worse before they get better."

We're focused on sustainable profitable growth and sustainable takes time," said Soltau, who joined Penney in October. She's been putting her management team together and working to improve Penney's processes, slashing inventories, working on integrating the online and store businesses, cutting down on shrink and revamping merchandise assortments and strategies.

Penney reduced its inventory by 13% last year and by 
16% at the end of the first quarter. New processes have also cut down "shrink," or the loss or theft of merchandise, the company said. dallasnews.com

A Call To Action
Retail LP Alert: TN High Court Invite Legal Debate Before Decision

TN: Knox Prosecutor's 'Walmart burglary' policy draws state Supreme Court review
Prosecutor Charging Repeat Shoplifters with Felony Burglary

Prosecutor finds a way around rising felony threshold by charging repeat shoplifters with felony burglary. But Appellate court say unconstitutional.

A Tennessee appellate court deemed a policy of prosecuting Walmart shoplifters as burglars unconstitutional but Knox County District Attorney General Charme Allen is continuing the effort and at least one judge - Scott Green - isn't happy about it. Nearly three years after Knox County District Attorney General Charme Allen launched a controversial policy of charging petty thieves who shoplift at least twice from Walmart with felony burglary charges, the Tennessee Supreme Court is stepping in to answer those questions.

In a rare move, the high court also is inviting legal debate in the run-up to its decision, a nod to the far-reaching effects the outcome could have for defendants and taxpayers across Tennessee and - if Allen's initiative passes legal muster - the nation. Under current law, it's a misdemeanor - punishable up to a year in jail - to shoplift less than $1,000 in merchandise from a retailer. Burglary, on the other hand, is a felony with a penalty range of three years in prison for a first-time offender to 12 years in the case of a defendant with a prior criminal history. Felons also lose their right to vote and carry weapons.

Facial recognition controversies draw increasing attention
The House Committee on Oversight and Reform held the first of its hearings into facial recognition, examining the impact the technology has on civil rights and liberties. The committee heard testimony from Algorithmic Justice League Founder Joy Buolamwini, Clare Garvie of the Georgetown Law Center on Privacy and Technology, both of whom have sparked debate with recent research.

Dr. Cedric Alexander, the former president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, University of D.C. Law Professor Andrew G. Ferguson, and ACLU Senior Legislative Counsel Neema Singh Guliani also testified.

Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) called for recommendations that would recognize the technology's potential, while safeguarding against misuse.

Recommendations discussed include disclosure rules and standards for law enforcement use.

The committee will hear from law enforcement at its next meeting on June 4

Video Analytics: Mature Solution or Still-Developing Technology?
The early struggles of video analytics technologies to live up to over-inflated expectations are well documented. Thankfully, improvements in performance have gone a long way toward overcoming end users' and integrators' disappointment and frustration with these solutions. That said, no amount of technological advancement will completely erase the stigma of the "over-promise and under-deliver" days, which is why many integrators still haven't completely embraced video analytics wholeheartedly.

While some technologies have matured to the point where integrators are comfortable deploying them, for some security providers, customer demand simply isn't there yet.

Sephora's "We Belong To Something Beautiful" Campaign
Closing All Stores For Inclusion Training

Beauty retail giant Sephora announced Thursday it will close its stores, distribution centers and corporate offices the morning of June 5 to hold an inclusion training workshop. The company said it wants to "begin a dialogue" with its more than 16,000 U.S. employees on the importance of diversity and inclusion to the organization, and is planning future training sessions.

The company released the following statement as part of its new diversity and inclusion marketing initiative: "Sephora believes in championing all beauty, living with courage, and standing fearlessly together to celebrate our differences. We will never stop building a community where diversity is expected, self-expression is honored, all are welcomed, and you are included."

While mass closures won't be an option for all businesses, it's more about signaling a willingness to take an issue seriously, and putting resources into finding a solution.

Ebay sting catches health and safety manager selling
fake car service history certificates

A health and safety manager made nearly £10,000 selling hundreds of fake car service history certificates over eBay. Paul Skidmore, 32, ran an online stationery business alongside his main job as a health and safety manager for a local clothing company. However, in a prosecution by Cornwall Council's Trading Standards team, Truro Magistrates' Court heard that in the summer of 2017 Skidmore started to produce fake car servicing history records in response to requests from customers on the auction website.  Read more

Is Hikvision Next to be Black Listed?
China and America's trade war looks more and more like a tech war, and the United States appears to be widening its focus on to another category of Chinese technology: surveillance.

The U.S. may put Chinese surveillance equipment company Hikvision on a blacklist that would limit its ability to acquire American components - expanding the tech rivalry between the countries and even bringing attention to the ways China monitors its own people.

Hikvision is one of the world's largest makers of video surveillance products. If Washington goes ahead with the penalties, U.S. firms will be required to obtain a government license to sell equipment to Hikvision, the New York Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The Times noted that the Trump administration sees China as an economic and geopolitical threat, but added that there are concerns about China's "extensive surveillance industry."

A Hikvision spokesperson told CNBC that the company "takes these concerns very seriously and has engaged with the U.S. government regarding all of this since last October." The spokesperson added that it had hired a human rights expert to advise the company.

7 Recent Wins Against Cybercrime in Last 18 Months
147,453 Fraudsters & $750M in Losses in 7 Cases

The increasing number of successful law enforcement actions and prosecutions suggest that cybercriminals have plenty of reason to be looking over their shoulders.

In reality, law enforcement organizations in the US and in several other countries have been recently notching up some important and impressive wins against cybercriminals. Just like a majority of large cybercrime operations are international in scope, the arrests, website takedowns, and prosecutions have also often been the result of extensive collaboration between US agencies and their counterparts around the world.

It's too soon to see what impact these actions will have on cybercrime activity over the next few years. In some cases, law enforcement actions have had an immediate short-term impact.

7 Recent Cases
Russia & Eastern Europe: GozNym - 11 gang members, 41,000 computers infected, $100 million stolen.
Romania: Alexandria Online Auction Fraud Network - 20 gang members, fake ads for cars and other high-ticket items
Belgium & Ukraine: xDebic Takedown - online marketplace - 416 sellers, 70,000 compromised servers, $68 million in fraud
US & 4 other countries: Operation Wire Wire BEC Arrests - business email compromise operations, 49 gang members in US & 29 in Nigeria, $16.4M fraudulent wire transfers disrupted
Canada, UK, Serbia, Croatia: Webstresser Wipeout - DDoS attacks - 136,000 users, 4 million DDoS attacks, 6 administrators arrested
US & a dozen other countries: Outing the Infraud Organization - $530 million in losses over 7 yrs., 26 gang members, 10,900 Infraud members
New Jersey: SamSam Rasomware, 2 Iranian nationals, $6M in payments & $30M in losses to victims.

"We need a single national standard" - Then a global one
The US wants to copy Europe's strict data privacy law - but only some of it

Lawmakers, lobbyists and CEOs in the U.S. are looking to trying to pick out the best parts of GDPR - and ditch what they see as the worst.

"We want to adapt many of the protections under GDPR but we also want to streamline those compliance requirements that under GDPR are quite burdensome," said Denise Zheng, VP of Technology and Innovation Policy at Business Roundtable, in an interview in Washington last month.

Zheng said requirements like "opt-in" banners on websites can hurt users' online experience, while penalties under GDPR are "quite significant" for smaller businesses.

Companies back many of the individual rights under GDPR such as transparency, correction, deletion and access to data, Zheng said. She added there is broad support for a common framework like GDPR that "harmonizes" privacy rules across different regions.

One big sticking point when it comes to U.S. federal privacy legislation is whether it would pre-empt California's state rules. Some Democrats like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) have said they won't support a federal bill that "weakens" California's standards, while tech companies and some Republicans favor a national law that would override, and possibly ease, state requirements.

"A global consensus on privacy is probably a few years off. That's a goal to grow towards, but that's where we want to end up," Espinel said.

It's not just WhatsApp, most messaging apps likely have security vulnerabilities
But Facebook owned WhatsApp warned that even after the patch, users should keep in mind that there will always be vulnerabilities on mobile applications.

"While updates can fix known defects and vulnerabilities, they can insert new unknown ones," he said. In software development and testing, engineers can identify weaknesses, but it is "literally impossible" to prove the absence of a vulnerability in a "non-trivial application," he added.

"The unfortunate reality is that most messaging apps have vulnerabilities that can be exploited by sophisticated cyber spies," he said. "No messaging service is bulletproof."

Security shouldn't be an 'afterthought' The onus is on developers to create secure apps, said experts, although one added it may not be realistic to expect a group to identify all vulnerabilities.

Alphabet, Google's Parent - Denies Defrauding Publishers & Advertisers
for $75M in Invalid Clicks

Internal Google emails show that for years the company failed to return credit or refunds to advertisers when they were billed for fraudulent advertising activity, according to US federal court documents obtained by Business Insider.

The emails were introduced or quoted in litigation between Google and a company called AdTrader, which has in the past handled online advertising for clients such as Citroen, Allianz, Nestle.

The litigation also revealed that Google now intends to refund $75 million to advertisers who were defrauded prior to late 2017. Google will call some of the biggest advertisers by phone to inform them how much they are owed. Clients will have a July 15 deadline to register for credits. The company's position is that the refunds are being issued after a historical analysis of traffic activity, and not because of the lawsuit.

How Luxury Brands Can Beat Counterfeiters
For years, the luxury industry has waged a battle against counterfeiters. It has invested heavily in ultra-sophisticated tech solutions which use the latest advances in nanotechnology, internet of things (IoT), and AI to authenticate products. It lobbies governments to extend enforcement bodies' powers to seize and destroy fake goods, to prosecute buyers and dealers, and to block access to websites that sell counterfeit goods. And then there are the lawyers: LVMH alone employs at least 60 lawyers and spends $17 million annually on anti-counterfeiting legal action.

These efforts are not paying off. The total trade in fakes is estimated at around $4.5 trillion, and fake luxury merchandise accounts for 60% to 70% of that amount, ahead of pharmaceuticals and entertainment products and representing perhaps a quarter of the estimated $1.2 trillion total trade in luxury goods. Digital plays a big role in this and perhaps 40% of the sales in luxury fakes take place online, as today's counterfeiters milk the ubiquity and anonymity of the internet space to the last drop. For every e-commerce platform like Alibaba that cracks down on fakes, a new one emerges that allows goods to be shipped directly from manufacturers.

So what should luxury goods companies be doing instead?

Fillmore, CA: Couple charged with Theft and Violent Assault on Dollar General employee; search reveals 100 items in the car
 Ventura County Sheriff's officials said Kayla Gularte, 21, and Kathryn Weaver, 22, are accused of stealing nearly two dozen containers of laundry detergent and cleaning items from Dollar General Store in Fillmore Thursday afternoon. An alert employee saw the crime taking place and confronted Gularte and Weaver in the parking lot. Sheriff's officials say Gularte sprayed the employee in the face with pepper spray and assaulted him before taking off running. Deputies say Weaver was waiting in a getaway car; the two took off but within minutes the women were stopped, arrested, and taken into custody. Sheriff's officials searched the car and say they found nearly 100 items that appeared to be stolen including a number of bras, perfume, razors and other toiletry items. keyt.com

Fremont, CA: Thieves steal $2 million worth of computer equipment
from Fremont business

The suspects used masks to cover their faces and were familiar with the building's layout. On Saturday, an employee of the tech company in the Bayside Business Park reported the theft. Millions of dollars in computer equipment was stolen and the thought among employees is that is was an inside job. The thieves knew which window to break and chose the one without sensors that wouldn't set off the alarm. They also came prepared with paint to distort the camera. An employee says five people were seen on surveillance video wearing ski masks and breaking through a window to get inside. Police say the suspects likely used a stolen cargo van from a nearby business to drive off with the equipment. kron4.com

Cabazon, CA: Serial outlet shoplifter used minors help to commit crimes
A 27-year-old woman accused of shoplifting from the Cabazon premium outlets with the help of minors on several different occasions was free on bail today. Raven Danielle Walker was arrested around 2 p.m. Saturday at a home in San Bernardino on suspicion of a dozen felony counts, including five for second-degree burglary and seven for conspiracy to commit crime, according to jail records. Riverside County sheriff's deputies believe Walker shoplifted from several stores at the Desert Hills Premium Outlet since early December 2018, and in some instances had juveniles aid in the suspected thefts.

A reported gunshot Monday night at the Fashion Show mall on the Strip sent crowds running and prompted a heavy police response. Nearly 20 months after a mass shooting about 2.5 miles south on the Strip took 58 lives, the response Monday was a startling reminder of how quickly a normal day can turn chaotic. Las Vegas police said the gunshot was reported shortly after 6 p.m. The preliminary investigation revealed that a fight occurred, but as it broke up, one shot was fired, police said. No one was injured, but the shooting prompted a precautionary evacuation, according to police.

Portland, OR: Would-be robber shows hatchet, clerk pulls out gun; employee now terminated
A would-be robber of a convenience store brought a hatchet as a weapon. He ran when the clerk pulled out a gun. The April 28 incident at the Oak Grove Plaid Pantry was captured on surveillance video and just released by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. As the clerk picked up the phone to call 911, the robber slid the hatchet across the counter, put his hands up and reportedly said, "I'm sorry. I'll leave." He then ran out of the store. The president of Plaid Pantry told KOIN 6 News the stores have a zero tolerance for weapons and the clerk is no longer employed there. He said employees are trained to de-escalate robbery situations to avoid injury.

It gives you the perfect chance to look at yourself and say how can I improve and be truly what I want to be. It erases your blackboard and allows you the chance to write something new, something you've always wanted to be. A move, often times referred to as a geographical cure, can be just the medicine to help start a new you.

Just a Thought,
