Amazon Workers Say
Security Screening Is Compensable
Amazon.com Inc. warehouse workers on Friday urged a Kentucky federal
judge overseeing multidistrict litigation over whether the employees deserve
pay for time spent passing through security checks not to toss their case,
saying they engaged in compensable work.
The workers, whose case was
initially filed in Pennsylvania state court and removed to Kentucky federal
court in November 2013, argued that their Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act
claims should not be dismissed because they do not fall under the
Portal-to-Portal Act, which was passed as an amendment to the Fair Labor
Standards Act to exempt certain preliminary and "postliminary" activities
from the definition of "work" under the FLSA.
State Department Seals Europe's Retailers Fate
- Tourism Dollars Vanish?
Restaurants & Shopping Centers Likely Targets
The State Department on Tuesday alerted U.S. citizens traveling to Europe to
heightened risks of terrorism, citing events in France and Poland this
summer that are expected to draw large crowds. The alert is for all of
Europe and comes as vacation season starts.
"This alert was issued
just as they always are based on an accumulation of information and what we
know continues to be an interest by terrorists groups to conduct attacks
against western targets and Americans specifically in Europe," said John
Kirby, a State Department spokesman.
Tourism across the globe accounts for billions in retail spending and with
everyone watching the U.S. this will have a ripple effect on all tourism
across the globe, including New York City. As reports from around the world
specifically point out, double digit decreases in sales in Europe and Asia
are directly tied to drops in tourism spending. Even Macy's reported it's
negative impact in NYC the past two quarters. And with more and more U.S.
retailers growing their international presence, this will have an impact in
the second and third quarters.
calls for stricter penalties for Firearm Theft; a response to Prop 47
An Inland assemblywoman's bill to make all firearm thefts felonies passed
the state Assembly on Tuesday, May 31. The bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman
Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, is a response to Prop. 47, which reduced
penalties for firearm theft from a felony to a misdemeanor if the stolen gun
is valued at less than $950. "I am one of the strongest defenders of the
Second Amendment in the state Legislature, but if you steal a gun, jail time
should be in your future," Melendez said in a news release. The bill, AB
1869, now goes to the Senate Public Safety Committee for a hearing. If
passed, the measure would go on the ballot for voter approval.
Ways for Retail Jewelers to Reduce Smash-and-Grab Robbery Losses
In the last five months there have been 25 smash-and-grab robberies
of jewelry stores in the United States, out of 65 robberies of all types,
and in 2015 there were 72 smash-and-grabs. The FBI, ATF, and local police
have been very active in investigating jewelry store robberies, and
this year there have been arrests of 49 robbery suspects in 20 cases.
Jewelers need to focus on these risks, and there are important steps
that retail jewelers can take to reduce the likelihood of a smash-and-grab
robbery as well as the amount of the loss if one occurs. However, having
adequate insurance is the underlying protection absolutely needed by retail
jewelers no matter what crime-prevention steps are taken.
Recommendations for reducing smash-and-grab robbery losses:
2. Showcases with laminated glass and sturdy frames have prevented
many smash-and-grab robberies or greatly reduced the amount of a loss.
3. Buzzers with locked doors can provide some deterrent in preventing
robbers from targeting or entering a store.
4. Don't concentrate high
value merchandise in only one showcase.
5. The use of guards, armed or
unarmed, is a complicated issue that each owner needs to decide in his or
her own special circumstances.
6. Jewelers should establish a personal
relationship with their local police department.
7. Jewelers should be
alert for casing and suspicious circumstances, and record such instances in
a suspicious-incident notebook.
8. Having eye-level cameras in stores at
the front that clearly record those going in or coming out can provide great
investigative material for law enforcement.
9. Share information,
photos, and videos on possible casing and suspicious incidents with other
jewelers in the area, local police, and with JSA.

Cops Don't Need Warrant
For Cell Location, 4th Circ. Finds
enforcement officials don't need search warrants to obtain records held by
cellphone companies that show users' past physical locations, the full
Fourth Circuit ruled Tuesday.
In a 12-3 decision, the majority
reasoned that the third-party doctrine applied in the case of two
men convicted of armed robberies in Maryland. The men, Aaron Graham
and Eric Jordan, had voluntarily turned over the non-content-related
location information to a third party, so all that was needed was a
court order under the Stored Communications Act rather than a
search warrant under the Fourth Amendment, the majority found. Acquiring the
court order requires a showing similar to a subpoena - a much lower bar than
a search warrant.

11 Fresh & Easy Grocery Stores Amid Fraud Claims
Citing a demonstrated risk of fraudulent transfers by a Fresh & Easy
LLC affiliate, a Delaware bankruptcy judge on Tuesday blocked the failed
grocery chain's owners and subsidiaries from selling stores allegedly
shifted to an insider-controlled company without compensation in 2014.
Judge Brendan L. Shannon granted the temporary restraining order at the
request of Fresh & Easy's Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors after
the group filed a proposed bankruptcy court lawsuit seeking the recovery of
grocery stores and funds in connection with the earlier transfers.
Spurring the move were committee accusations that YFE Holdings Inc., Fresh
Foods LLC, FEFOS LLC and other corporate and individual parties might have
played a role in handing 19 stores to FEFOS, without payment, for
their own benefit during the company's insolvency.
individuals named in the suit was Ronald W. Burkle, the investor and
Democratic activist who is majority owner of YFE, which is in turn
sole owner of FEFOS and Fresh & Easy.

How Security And IT
Teams Can Get Along
Security managers need to
change the conversation with IT teams, showing how to secure critical assets
without stifling innovation and business processes. You've heard it all
before: there's a glaring disconnect between the goals of the information
security team and the IT group. But the rapid-fire evolution of both
technology and cyberthreats could be just what ultimately unites them.
Consider how the IT department must find and deploy technology to enhance
communication, drive information-sharing, and support efficient processes so
an organization can achieve its goals. So not surprisingly, IT
professionals are mainly concerned with availability, ease-of-use,
performance, and costs
As today's network borders become
more porous, the security team, meanwhile, must monitor activity
inside the network for suspicious actions conducted by outside attackers as
well as unauthorized actions committed intentionally or unintentionally by
. Disruptive technologies such as cloud
computing, mobile, Internet of Things, and social media open up more doors
adversaries can use to attack or steal critical assets.
How to craft a security awareness program that
Organizations struggle with
making security awareness training programs that work. One expert says
that's because we treat security awareness training as an event rather than
a continuous program of education that adapts to the risks employees face.
Effective awareness training should be tailored for a variety of
situations and starts with a risk assessment.
"What are your risks?
Align your training around those," Conrad says. "You shouldn't give the same
training to everyone in your organization. Your executives need certain
training that others in the organization may not."
employees may need extra training around social engineering risks, while
human resources employees may need particular training about handling
personally identifiable information (PII).
Conrad notes that the
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Cybersecurity Framework is
an excellent foundational document with which to start the process.
Once you know what you need to protect and who needs special training to
protect it, you need to craft a program of continuous education around it.
It's also essential to treat your security awareness program as a
communication exercise - essentially a change management problem. IT and the
security function may not have the skills to make that happen, so Conrad
suggests partnering with the training organization or the marketing
organization to most effectively get the awareness training across.
93% of phishing emails
are now ransomware
As of the end of March, 93
percent of all phishing emails contained encryption ransomware, according to
a report released today by PhishMe. That was up from 56 percent in December,
and less than 10 percent every other month of last year.
number of phishing emails hit 6.3 million in the first quarter of this year,
a 789 percent increase over the last quarter of 2015.
skyrocketing growth is due to that fact that
is getting easier and easier to send and that it offers a
quick and easy return on investment. If you look at the price point of
paying the ransom, it is rarely more than 1 or 2 Bitcoin, that's $400 to
$800, maybe $1,000 depending on the exchange rate.
Catch insider threats
with User Behavior Analytics
malicious insiders requires enabling advanced technologies such as
User Behavior Analytics
- an emerging technology that could provide data
protection and fraud detection capabilities that otherwise would go
unnoticed. UBA uses a specialized security analytics algorithms that focuses
beyond an initial login and includes tracking every movement of user
activities in connection with systems that they use to perform their
day-to-day operations and roles.
User behavior analytics technology
performs two main functionalities. First, it helps determine a baseline of
the normal activities that a user performs, and second, it can quickly
identify deviations from the normal behavior that trigger an action for
security analysts to conduct investigation. The anomalous or negligent
behavior might not be the malicious at first look but requires security
analysts to investigate and determine legitimate vs malicious behavior.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos: We Should Settle Mars 'Because It's Cool'
Peabody, MA: Ringleader of
credit card fraud scheme held on $100K bail; woman has record of similar crimes
dating to '90s
Just months after being released
from federal prison and still on probation for her role in a massive credit card
fraud ring, a former Peabody woman was back in business, prosecutors say,
operating an even more sophisticated scheme. Now, Blandine Joseph, 40, of
Brooklyn, New York, is back in custody, facing charges that include leading an
organized retail crime enterprise and money laundering. On Friday, a Salem
Superior Court judge set bail at $100,000 for Joseph, who was arrested on a
warrant following a secret indictment handed up in March that also charges her
with credit card fraud and other counts. The scheme, police and prosecutors say,
targeted stores and banks all over the Northeast, including some at the
Northshore Mall. Joseph and others used real credit and debit card numbers,
obtained through a variety of methods, to print real-looking cards they could
then swipe through a store's credit card machine to make purchases. But they
were also allegedly using their smartphones to make some purchases, using
services such as Google Wallet or Apple Pay, with the stolen numbers,
prosecutors say. The ring would then re-sell the clothing, gift cards and other
items purchased with the fraudulent cards. Police displayed nearly 200 credit
cards, many of them with the name "Maria Lopez" on them, others blank.
Kansas City: Kansas Woman
Admits Stealing between $25k to $100k in Merchandise
A suburban Kansas City woman with a history of shoplifting admitted in court
Tuesday that she stole tens of thousands of dollars of clothing and merchandise
she was peddling out of her nearly $1 million home. Kelli Bauer, 46 and of
Overland Park, Kansas, pleaded guilty in Johnson County to a felony theft count
that alleged she stole between $25,000 and $100,000. Bauer also pleaded guilty
to two misdemeanor theft counts. Sentencing for Bauer, who has been under house
arrest as a condition of bond, is scheduled for July 20. Bauer was charged last
year after police found stolen merchandise in her home during a search prompted
by her Facebook posting for the private sale of more than 1,000 pieces of
"high-end" women's clothing. Bauer showed undercover officers clothes - many
with tags still on them - hanging on a rack and folded on a bed in an upstairs
bedroom, according to court records. Bauer told the officers that she was
selling the items because she was a "compulsive shopper" and had lost weight,
the court documents said. The officers bought several items, including what
Bauer said was a fake Louis Vuitton bag for $50.
Rocky Mount, NC: Kmart
Employee busted for theft of over $22,000 of jewelry and assorted items

assorted items including clothing, drinks and a cell phone and accessories.

Mayflower, AR: Lumber One Home Improvement employee
busted in $40,000 forgery and theft case
Detectives are calling it one of the biggest forgery cases they've ever handled.
Tens of thousands of dollars swindled from local business Lumber One Home
Improvement, allegedly at the hands of one of its employees. Investigator Gene
Chase with Mayflower Police says he's never handled a forgery and theft case of
this magnitude, and said it was overwhelming with Lumber One first handed over
the stacks of fraudulent receipts. Looking through, he could tell the numbers
weren't adding up. The invoices and work orders were proof that at least $40,000
in cash and flooring materials had been stolen from one of Mayflower's biggest
businesses, through labor and billing discrepancies. Detective Chase says it was
pretty obvious someone was pocketing the excess.
Clinton, CT: (UPDATE) Police

$11,000 worth of merchandise. The employee was employed by the store as a
cashier and would void large transactions and then place the merchandise from
the voided transactions in customer's bags and allow them to leave. The employee
has admitted to the scam but has declined to name her accomplices.
