Social media location
data aids retailers in determining high theft rates
The Retail Equation has been working for the past three years to develop a
shrink risk index that collects location data from stores experiencing high
levels of theft and correlates it with location data feeds from Twitter.
TRE wanted to discover "whether we could, using only the text or word
information from the Twitter feeds around stores, determine and predict with
a level of accuracy the shrink in a store," says David Speights, TRE's chief
The analysis does not rely on people tweeting about
stealing, but "on the general tone or sentiment of the tweets. If the tweets
around a store are found to be more negative than the average for the
country - more references, for example, to statements like 'I hate my job' -
then those stores showed a higher shrink [rate] than the rest of the
country," Speights says.
Saving Lives with a
Test: Active Shooter Response Training for Employees
In certain parts of the country, people regularly perform earthquake and
tornado drills, priming themselves to be ready should the unexpected occur.
But, even though 50 percent of larger-sized businesses (those with more than
1,000 employees) experience an incident of workplace violence every year,
most enterprises do not teach employees and have regular drills on how to
respond to such an event.
I recently spoke with Jay Hart, founder of
the Force Training Institute, for tips on how enterprise security executives
can set up workplace violence drills that don't alarm and frighten
employees, instead, but help to educate them on how to respond during a
critical incident and potentially save lives.

The key to ending
skimming: A comprehensive approach
Global cumulative losses set to exceed $3
billion this year
Criminals view skimming as a
low-risk, high-reward tactic that gives them a range of options for
Card skimming is a particularly big problem in the
U.S., where fraudsters are increasingly targeting nonbank ATMs. These
locations are viewed as more vulnerable to ATM skimming as they may not have
the same level of attention paid to them. For instance, convenience
stores have become a popular target for fraudsters as their ATMs
may be in partially hidden locations that can offer fraudsters greater
Another area that's particularly vulnerable is gas
stations, the use of skimmers at these locations has exploded. Police in New
York have seen reports of skimming quadruple as skimming devices
become smaller, less obtrusive and cheaper for criminals to purchase.
new forms of skimmers are emerging that can be placed in positions that
avoid ATM anti-skimming devices, and criminals are now trying new methods to
get the card data at the internal card reader, or by tapping into network
For starters, anti-skimming solutions need to provide
the ability to detect the use of skimmers inside the card reader. These
solutions can be enhanced with the use of jamming technology, which provides
an additional way to defeat the criminal skimming device. Making physical
changes to ATMs to improve the protection of the fascia is also important,
in order to prevent any efforts to cut into a machine and attach devices to
its internal card reader.
In the longer term, the best way to tackle
the skimmers is to end the use of the magnetic stripe altogether through the
wider use of contactless solutions. atmmarketplace.com
Walmart U.S. to pilot
S'pore-based company's anti-theft system
Simple Technology - No PIN - No Use - No Theft
Years after an anti-theft system was developed by Singapore-based firm
Digital Safety (DiSa), United States retail giant Walmart is ready to take
it for a spin.
Catalist-listed Equation Summit said Walmart will use
its unit DiSa's system in a Walmart store in Arkansas for 30 days.
The firms signed an agreement last month to define the partnership, roles
and responsibilities for testing, evaluation and integration of the DiSa
solution, said Equation yesterday.
DiSa's anti-theft system is an
innovative digital solution that protects retail assets - consumer
electronics in particular - from the point they are produced to the point of
sale. DiSa produces an activation or personal identification number (PIN)
code for products, such as a tablet, which require the code to be unlocked
This requires suppliers to buy the PINs for each product, which
will be locked by the time it reaches the shelves of Walmart, for instance.
After the consumer buys the product, he receives the unique code on his
receipt for his use.
Equation Summit chief executive Eddie Chng told
The Straits Times this will deter shoplifting and employee theft, especially
of electronic goods.
Mr Chng said: "We're trying to provide
a platform for retailers to come on at no cost, and for the suppliers to
come onto the platform and they will be charged for each PIN code."
Under the platform, retailers only need to upgrade their
point-of- sale terminals, with no additional fees, and the codes should cost
suppliers less than US$1 for each device. DiSa's strategy is to get
retailers on board first. They will then be able to convince suppliers to
join the platform.

Credit Card Breach at
Cyber Gang Impersonates Technical Support - Hitting Other Retailers
CiCi's Pizza, an American fast food business based in Coppell, Texas with
more than 500 stores in 35 states
, appears to be the latest
restaurant chain to struggle with a credit card breach. The data available
so far suggests that hackers obtained access to card data at affected
restaurants by posing as technical support specialists for the
company's point-of-sale provider, and that multiple other retailers have
been targeted by this same cybercrime gang.
Over the past
two months, KrebsOnSecurity has received inquiries from fraud fighters at
more than a half-dozen financial institutions in the United States - all
asking if I had any information about a possible credit card breach at
CiCi's. Every one of these banking industry sources said the same thing:
They'd detected a pattern of fraud on cards that all had all been used in

Online fraud losses
A new infographic from fraud and risk
management technology provider Kount drives home the boomerang impact fraud has
on e-commerce. Called "The 10 Deadly Costs of Fraud" for e-commerce retailers,
here is a brief summary of its findings:
Lost/stolen merchandise - There was a 200% increase in fraud losses between 2014
and 2015, and fraud losses as a percentage of revenue nearly doubled to 1.32%
2. For every dollar of online fraud, an average of $2.27 is
lost, meaning losses are 127% higher than the actual value of lost or stolen
3. Fraud requires manual order reviews, of which up to 90%
4. Do-it-yourself fraud mitigation efforts are
expensive, with an average of $5-10 in total ownership costs for every dollar of
5. In 2015 online retailers declined 2.6% of orders due to
fraud concerns. Only 0.9% of those orders were actually fraudulent, meaning
retailers lost $14.5 billion in valid orders due to the 1.7% "fear of fraud"
6. Online retailers cancel twice as many orders as they need
to after fraud review, wasting $14-$109 in acquisition costs per wasted sale.
7. Orders with shipping expenses of more than $2,400 result in chargebacks
or fraud 3%-3.5% of the time, compared to 0.3% of the time for orders with
shipping expenses of less than $1,500.
8. Investigation of fraudulent
activity wastes time of expert employees with the highest hourly cost.
Higher rates of fraud and chargebacks winds up in higher cost of goods passed
along to consumers.
10. Consumers whose information is used in fraudulent
purchases also suffer losses due to fees/penalties, momentary losses and time
spent recovering accounts.

West Warwick, RI: State
Trooper's Seat-belt stop leads to arrest of brothers, charges of shoplifting
$10,000 in medication from CVS
At 3:11 p.m.
Saturday, a trooper stopped a motor vehicle occupied by two brothers from
Pennsylvania. While speaking with the occupants, the trooper glimpsed silver tin
foil duct tape and a piece of steel mesh nylon on the rear seat. Through his
experience the trooper was aware that these items are commonly used in "boost
bags" during the act of shoplifting to avoid security detection. Both occupants
were taken into custody on the charge of obstruction of a police officer, and
while searching them in connection with the arrest. The trooper "observed a
layer of tin foil duct tape affixed to the inner portion of the men's pants."
Located during a search of the vehicle, the state police allege, were three
large plastic trash bags containing $10,000 of non-prescription medication with
the security labels still attached that had been stolen from four CVS stores in
Rhode Island. They also seized Walmart receipts for tin foil duct tape, the tape
itself, a piece of steel mesh nylon and a package of Heat-n-bond brand adhesive.

U.S. ATM skimming fraud
NEW ORLEANS (AP)
- Federal prosecutors
say a Romanian national has pleaded guilty to bank fraud related to the use of
ATM "skimming" devices.
U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite said Thursday
that 41-year-old Mihai Alexandru Dinu entered the plea to one count of bank
fraud. Court records show Dinu and another man were captured on surveillance

Subsequently, Dinu admitted he was working with a group of people who used fake
passports and driver's licenses to travel to the U.S. for that purpose.
Polite's office says Dinu also participated in a similar skimming conspiracy in
Virginia before coming to Louisiana.
