Protection 1 delivers "largest and best executed conversion ever conducted in retail" for Rite Aid nationwide
In Record Time

In a letter to Protection 1 leadership, Bob Oberosler, Group VP, Asset Protection for Rite Aid Stores, complemented the P1 team on the fire alarm and security service conversion project that they customized and implemented for Rite Aid. "The Protection 1 team won the Super Bowl of conversions, and has set the bar high for future conversions. The P1 team converted over 4,000 stores in less than six month's time, came in under budget, handled numerous last minute changes with ease, and completed all this with minimal disruption" to Rite Aid's business. The conversion process itself, led by Brendon Smith, the Vice President of Installation, was accomplished by creating a 16-member installation 'Seal' team that represented the best of the best at Protection 1. Focusing their "high energy and contagious passion" on converting and upgrading all of Rite Aid's stores to new IP alarm systems that will enable real-time remote panel code management, the process was a great achievement by the whole team at Protection 1. With P1’s National Account Operations Center supporting their technician field team and the Rite Aid team directly, this new and highly effective approach sets a new standard in the industry. Having completed a number of successful national retail conversions over the last few years, the Protection 1 team can now add Rite Aid to their growing success story.

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
America's new epidemic - 47% of Americans personal information compromised in last 12 months - staggering increase  Forty-seven percent of adult Americans have had their personal information compromised in the last 12 months, according to figures from the Ponemon Institute. Up to 432 million online accounts have been broken into over that time. Just over the last 12 months, the number of online break-ins has been staggering. Just over the last 12 months, the number of online break-ins has been staggering. Crooks gained access to the accounts of 145 million eBay users, according to Reuters. Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel resigned after company earnings dropped 16 percent as a result of its huge data breach last fall and the ongoing repercussions for the loss of information on 70 million customers and 40 million debit and credit cards. Adobe (ADBE) lost 33 million user credentials and 3.2 million credit and debit card numbers. Michaels (MIK) craft store chain, lost 3 million credit and debit cards and Neiman Marcus lost 1.1 million card numbers. Data for a "significant number" of AOL's (AOL) 120 million user accounts were taken, as was information from 4.6 million Snapchat user accounts. After so many examples of this problem, the obvious question is: Why don't companies take better care of the information entrusted to them. Editors Note: This is helping to fuel the ID theft epidemic we're seeing in the stores and will continue to be a major problem for every retailer. (Source kashgartimes.com)

Will New Law Force Cruise Lines To Improve Onboard Security?
In April, U.S. Representatives Dogget (TX), Costa (CA), and Tsongas (MA) became co-sponsors of the Cruise Passenger Protection Act, a bill making its way through congress that will increase the requirements on the cruise ship industry to improve the safety and security of passengers. The law would require cruise lines to publicly report all alleged crimes on a ship and to disclose their passenger contracts in plain English. Thanks to a legal loophole, cruise lines and the federal government currently don’t do what the new law would require, including publicly reporting every alleged and significant crime committed aboard cruise ships. It’s also a troubling reminder that at sea, you don’t have the same rights as on land. (Source securityhive.com)

Michael Kors Plots Major Retail Rollout - One of the hottest retailers on the planet!  It ended fiscal 2014 with 1,560 global shops-in-shop, and plans to open 500 in fiscal 2015. In the U.S., the company expects to open 45 North American stores in fiscal 2015, 10 in Japan. Kors plans to increase its travel retail stores in airports, where it has 50 sites and can support 75 such locations. Including licensed locations, there were 555 Michael Kors stores worldwide at the end of the fourth quarter. (Source wwd.com)

The Future of Retail: More Robots, Fewer Salespeople
Technology is set to play a major role is this transition, with cashiers giving way to scan-and-pay apps (which Walmart recently experimented with) and stores investing in more immersive, digitally enhanced experiences, like the Apple stores and Burberry’s flagship in London. “Stores will have to become places that carry experiences versus just products, and allow the customer to become an active participant, rather than just a consumer,” Stephens says. One potentially scary development is the oncoming death of the salesperson, which Stephens believes to be inevitable. In the near future, we could see the replacement of low-wage retail workers with robots like IBM’s Watson, a cognitive computer that beat two Jeopardy champions earlier this year and gets smarter as you use it. Computer labor is much more economical, easier to manage and immune to human faults (like general snobbery), so it’s not a stretch to imagine multiple Watsons stationed in stores to answer your customer concerns.

Wal-Mart CEO says chain ramping up pace of acquisitions
Doug McMillon, CEO of Wal-Mart Stores, said the company plans to ramp up the company's pace of partnerships and acquisitions as part of a broader strategy to better compete with digital rivals. We’ve been more acquisitive lately, especially for talent,” McMillon said, according to the report. “And our pace of acquisitions, I think, is going to accelerate.” McMillion, who made his remarks during a presentation at the Code Conference, in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, also said the chain, might one day use 3-D printers for producing supplies. “Three-D printing is interesting to me. We can use 3-D printing over time for replacement parts,” McMillion said, according to the report. (Source chainstoreage.com)

Chico's to Pull Back on Store Openings
Chico's will reduce the number of new store openings for 2014 to 107 from the previously announced 120 and 130 stores after a dismal first quarter that missed analysts' estimates on a 22 percent decline in profits. Chico's made the announcement on a conference call with investors, stating that the additional store openings may still happen at a later time. While Chico's is reducing the number of new stores in the U.S., the retailer will still forge ahead with its international expansion plans this fall. The retailer has planned three Canadian boutiques in Toronto-area shopping malls, the first of which will open in late August. (Source fierceretail.com)

CEO Jeff Bezos revealed the plan to add more robots during a shareholder meeting. There are roughly 1,300 robot workers currently in operation in Amazon distribution centers which has helped the Internet giant cut costs and fulfill e-commerce orders faster. The increase won't change the number of actual people employed, an Amazon spokeswoman told CNN. (Source fierceretail.com)

Needed: Breach detection correction
There is no shame in being breached by a cyber attack – security experts are unanimous about that. Prevention, while a worthy part of a risk management strategy, will never be 100% successful, given the sophistication and overwhelming volume of attacks. But there is room for improvement – vast improvement – in the detection of breaches. A large majority of enterprises fail to detect breaches on their own – they find out about them from somebody else, as a couple of recent reports show. The results in a report from security firm Trustwave were more encouraging, at least for the time between intrusion and detection – it found the median was 87 days. But the ability of firms to detect malware in their systems on their own was only 29%, which Karl Sigler, Trustwave’s manager of threat intelligence called, “just a horrible statistic in general.” All of which raises a couple of obvious questions: Why are organizations so bad at detecting breaches? And what can and should they be doing to improve?

Data Thieves Not Satisfied With Just Payment Data Anymore
Payment card data continues to be the prime target for data compromises, but increasingly thieves are starting to go after other types of personal and valuable data to steal, according to a new report from security firm Trustwave. Last year, the company saw a 33 percent increase in the theft of sensitive and confidential information, such as financial credentials, internal communications, personally identifiable information and various customer records. In all, 45 percent of thefts involved non-payment data, according to the “2014 Trustwave Global Security Report.” “We saw attackers diversifying the types of data they target,” Trustwave said in its report. “It’s not just about payment card data anymore.” Retail was the top industry compromised, accounting for 35 percent of the attacks investigated. Food and beverage ranked second at 18 percent, hospitality ranked third at 11 percent, and finance ranked fourth at 9 percent. (Source pymnts.com)

Burglary ring in Jefferson City could be linked to national trend  A string of burglaries are under investigation in Jefferson City, and they could all be linked back to a national phenomenon called the "purple drank." It's a syrupy mixture that contains cough medicine, promethazine. One Jefferson City pharmacy has been hit by burglars twice in 2 weeks, most recently Tuesday night. Last week, the Whaley's East End Pharmacy was burglarized. The cough medicine promethazine was taken from the store. It also contains codeine. The "purple drank" mixture that it's used for can be fatal, but it's attractive to first time drug users. Typically it's mixed with a soda such as Mountain Dew, or a Jolly Rancher. Last year, the same store was burglarized, and the same drug was taken, just like last week. (Source abc17news.com)

ORC group of 8 busted & fencing operations discovered in Wichita, Kan., after year long joint project between law enforcement and retailers to combat organized retail crime in Kansas, and began in February 2013  Local law enforcement agencies partnered with area retail and grocery stores to combat repeat shoplifters and stolen goods buyers. The undercover investigation began last year when local stores donated thousands of dollars worth of merchandise for the undercover sales. The first stage involved identifying "boosters" who were targeting Dillons, Walmart, Target and other local stores. Following interviews with those suspects, investigators identified more than a dozen individuals and locations in the Wichita area who were knowingly buying stolen items at discount prices. The DA's office said many of those buying stolen merchandise operated markets and restaurants in and around Wichita. The operation aimed to discourage criminal activity, and focused on shoplifters, and boosters, who sold the stolen merchandise to third parties for a discounted price. Many of the individuals buying stolen products operated markets and restaurants in the Wichita area. The stolen property included thousands of dollars in meat, electronics, home appliances, baby formula, baby wipes, detergent and other items. The joint investigation ultimately involved several agencies, including the Sedgwick County Sheriff, Hutchinson Police Department, Reno County Attorney, United States Attorney's office in Wichita, Sedgwick County District Attorney, and the enforcement arm of the United States Department of Agriculture.

Managing your career upwards is also about simply managing your boss so to speak. While everything out there talks about managing direct reports, managing your relationships, managing your time, and managing your job, you've also got to be aware of the fact that you need to manage your boss as well. As a matter of fact, managing your boss may be the most critical part of managing your career upwards and most don't approach it that way. That being said, one must be careful here because most bosses don't want to be managed.
