The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
"We manage our threats, but what about our vendors?" - A telling article by an anonymous security manager  Ever since we learned that last autumn's massive Target data breach was accomplished with the use of access credentials stolen from a third-party vendor, I've been concerned about similar threats at my company. We use lots of vendors, many of which have access to our network. I've spent a lot of money, time and energy fortifying my network and its perimeter. But what if one of the vendors gets compromised? Could hackers sneak into my network through the side door, posing as a legitimate service employee? Of course, this is really nothing new. I've written a few columns in the past about problem vendors and some of the things I've done to deal with the consequences of business managers signing contracts with third parties without involving my team. I've also mentioned in the past that I try to review third-party SSAE16 (previously SAS70) reports on our vendors that audit firms have produced, and I hope those reports are accurate and unbiased.

California kills bill to require that retailers use EMV smartcards
The California State Senate has killed a bill that would have required California retailers to implement the Europay MasterCard Visa (EMV) smartcard standard that's seen as far safer than magnetic stripe technology used today. The legislation (S.B. 1351), introduced by State Senator Jerry Hill (D-Calif.), would have given retailers until April 1, 2016 to put in place payment systems capable of supporting EMV debit and credit card transactions.

Target takes heat for open-carry policy
The group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, has taken to Twitter to criticize Target for allowing members of groups such as Open Carry Texas to walk around its stores with rifles slung over their shoulders. It's a response to pictures of men and women carrying firearms in Dallas-area Target stores that have surfaced on social media, apparently posted by members of Open Carry Texas and similar groups, which even the National Rifle Association has opposed in recent days. In the aftermath of a killing spree at a California college one week ago and several other mass shootings in recent years, the gun debate seems to be escalating—and Twitter looks to be an important platform for opposing sides to persuade public sentiment.

Crime Costing Mexican Companies $5.8 Billion a Year
The head of Mexico's employers' association reported that crime and insecurity cost the country's businesses $5.8 billion annually, underscoring the enormous financial impact of criminal activity in the country. Juan Pablo Castañon, the leader of employers' association Coparmex, said 37 percent of Mexican companies had been victims of crimes including extortion, corruption, robbery of merchandise or kidnapping, reported Latin American Herald Tribune. Despite these threats, Mexican businesses don't spend a larger percentage of their operating budget on security than their regional counterparts, according to a survey conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce of Mexico (download the survey here). Mexican businesses spent an average of four percent of their operating budget on security in 2012, which is consistent with what other companies in Latin America spend and less than the seven percent spent on average by US businesses.

RadioShack renegotiating rent payments, closing stores
RadioShack Corp. CEO Joe Magnacca told shareholders Tuesday that the company is aggressively negotiating with landlords to reduce rents while it closes 200 stores a year for the next three years. A total of 600 stores through 2016 is allowed by covenants with its bankers, who earlier shot down a plan to close 1,100 of its 4,300 company-owned stores this year. The dispute has slowed the Fort Worth-based retailer’s turnaround efforts, Magnacca said. “We’re having a dialogue with our lenders. We realize we have different lenders with different needs,” he said to reporters before the annual meeting in Fort Worth on Tuesday. “We’ll have to live with closing up to 600 stores.” So far, RadioShack has closed 20 stores this year. The remaining 180 stores haven’t yet been identified. The selection hinges on lease negotiations and each store’s level of business. (Source dallasnews.com)

CDC: 70 percent of norovirus cases linked to restaurants
Norovirus, the most common form of foodborne illness, has become known as something people pick up on cruise ships. The real problem, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lies much closer to home. Food handlers, such as cooks and waiters, cause about 70% of norovirus outbreaks related to contaminated food, mostly through touching "ready to eat" foods – such as sandwiches or raw fruit – with their bare hands, according to a new report from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 90% of contamination occurred during food preparation, and 75% of food involved in outbreaks was consumed raw. (Source freep.com)

UK Consumers Aren't Buying Into Mobile Payments
Are smartphones destined to replace credit cards as consumers' payment method of choice? Shoppers in the United Kingdom don't think so. A recent study found that U.K. consumers are more reluctant to adopt mobile payments than shoppers in the United States are. As eMarketer reports, a February 2014 report by business consulting firm Bain & Co. found that just 3 percent of U.K. Internet users had used their mobile phones to pay for goods or services, compared with 7 percent of U.S. Internet users. And it isn't that shoppers in the U.K. don't realize they have the option of paying with their phones. The survey found that 55 percent of respondents were well aware of what mobile payments were all about, but they simply preferred to pay with cash or credit. Moreover, some consumers were suspicious of certain kinds of mobile payments, particularly digital currencies like Bitcoin, the study also found. (Source businessnewsdaily.com)

NSA building global identity database from intercepted images, applying facial recognition, new Snowden documents reveal  The NSA is processing millions of facial images from intercepted communications as part of a program to build a global identity database of persons of interest, documents from the Edward Snowden cache seen by the New York Times have revealed. The number of images said to have passed through the system ran into millions per day, the documents said, 55,000 of which were "facial recognition quality images" [i.e. able to recognise individuals from various angles] which the NSA document praises for their "tremendous untapped potential."

What’s working in the fight against ORC: Successful models from two Florida agencies  NRF’s Organized Retail Crime Study recently shed light on what’s become a $30 billion problem in retail. With large metropolitan areas and close proximity to ports for shipping goods, Florida is one of the most active areas for ORC. But two Florida sheriff’s offices are currently winning battles against the surprisingly sophisticated theft rings. These law enforcement leaders have discovered effective formulas for success that combines joining forces with multiple law enforcement agencies, partnering with retailers and sharing their successful methods with others in the loss prevention and law enforcement community. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office formed a specialized unit to combat ORC in 2011, but their initial efforts weren’t enough. “We quickly realized we couldn’t do it alone,” said Sgt. Rich Rossman of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. “It’s much bigger than Broward County. We look at it as a whole, not just what’s occurring in our back yard.” Further north in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, a rapid response ORC unit has already made 100 arrests and saved retailers losses of more than $2.3 million in just six months. From the collaboration of the rapid response unit and their retail partners, a new tactic emerged: a special training course that is now being offered to law enforcement officers across Florida, and soon, across the country.

Purported West York ringleader of massive Retail Theft Ring awaits sentencing: over 130 suspects involved  The purported ringleader of a massive and highly organized retail theft ring surprised prosecutors Tuesday morning when he decided to plead to the charges against him, moments before his trial was set to start. James Lee Giuffrida enlisted about 137 people -- mostly drug users -- to shoplift items from numerous stores in York, Adams, Cumberland, Lancaster and Lebanon counties, as well as two Maryland counties, authorities said. They formed groups or "crews" in which one member, dubbed a "booster," would steal an item from a store, then a second crew member called a "refunder" would return the item without a receipt and obtain a refund in the form of a gift card. The crew members would then sell the gift cards to Giuffrida at a fraction of their value and he would resell them online and make a profit, senior deputy prosecutor Jonathan Blake said. Crew members also stole items such as teeth-whitening strips, razor blades, batteries and ink cartridges and sold them to Giuffrida at far less than their retail value, according to Blake; Giuffrida could then resell the items. "He would instruct them on what stores they should go to," Blake said, and would warn them about which stores were cracking down on shoplifters. "An individual team could make $1,500 a day or up to $10,000 a week," Blake said. (Source yorkdispatch.com)

Criminals stealing guns from stores, Walmart latest target in Memphis, TN  For the third time this year, guns were stolen from a Walmart. This time, police say two guys got away after smashing a glass case, stealing an assault rifle and running out the Walmart on Germantown Parkway. Security cameras capture clear images of the two thieves who police say came into Walmart with one thing on their minds: guns. Police say one man distracted a worker in the sporting goods department, while the other broke the glass on a gun case and took an assault rifle. Walmart has already stepped up security at the Cordova Walmart after seven guns were stolen in February. A Walmart was also hit up for two guns in January. (Source wreg.com)

Rochester woman sentenced to seven months in jail for designer purse thefts  The Rochester woman who pleaded guilty to organized retail fraud involving high-end purse thefts was sentenced to seven months in jail and two years of probation Tuesday in Oakland County Circuit Court. Laura Anne Pochmara 37, faced a group of charges that included receiving and concealing stolen property between $1,000 and $20,000, organized retail fraud, a habitual second offense of retail fraud and first-degree retail fraud in a case in several Oakland County jurisdictions that began in Milford. Pochmara’s teenage daughter sat in Circuit Judge Colleen O’Brien’s courtroom as Pochmara was sentenced 213 days in jail — with credit for 110 days served — and 24 months probation.

Apple Allows Virtual Currencies in Apps, Opening Door to Bitcoin
Apple Inc. changed its policy to let software developers include virtual-currency transactions in their applications, paving the way for new forms of money like bitcoin to appear on iPhones and iPads. While Apple didn’t mention bitcoin specifically, its developer terms now allow for certain “approved virtual currencies,” without saying what those were. Apps that use the digital money must comply with state and federal laws wherever they’re designed to work, the terms say. The change signals that Apple is warming up to virtual currencies after previously blocking programs like Blockchain.info from its App Store. Bitcoin is the most popular digital currencies, which governments are struggling to determine how to regulate because they exist only as software. Getting access to iPhones could help increase bitcoin’s use, as Apple is the top U.S. smartphone manufacturer, with a 41 percent average share of the market in the three months ending in March, according to ComScore Inc.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
