'On the same team: LP and IT working together to tackle retail crime'


Gus Downing, President & Publisher of The D&D Daily, moderated a panel discussion Wednesday afternoon with a group loss prevention and cyber security practitioners, sharing best practices on a range of topics such as prioritization, technology deployments, risk management planning and more.

Members of the panel included: David Johnston, Sr. Director, Loss Prevention & Corporate Security of Dunkin' Brands Inc.; Gail Morris, Director, Loss Prevention of Williams-Sonoma Inc.; Jason Painter, Enterprise Security Manager of Williams-Sonoma Inc., and Terrence Weekes, Chief Information Security Officer of Jack in the Box Inc.

From data breaches, ransomware, business email compromise schemes, and constant insider threats, to AI, machine learning, scan-and-go, curbside pick-up, and facial recognition, the speed of change in retail, and the number of new cybercrime risks alone, is like nothing we've ever seen before.

Yesterday's panel discussed how these risks and opportunities are impacting today's retailers, why LP and IT Security must work together and become one to fully address these challenges, and where their companies - and the industry in general - are in this convergence journey.

Dollar General Must Face ADA Suit Over Blocked Aisles
Dollar General lost its bid to toss a proposed class action alleging that its stores' cluttered aisles limit customer mobility in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, after a Pennsylvania federal judge denied the company's motion to dismiss the case Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Peter J. Phipps said that, at least for now, Rebecca Nocera had adequately pled her case that Dollar General Corp.'s stores were inaccessible to people in wheelchairs or with other mobility issues because of poor placement of columns, displays and merchandise carts, in possible violation of Title III of the ADA. law360.com

Walmart Adjusts to Trump's Tariffs Through a Price-Changing Tool
App lets vendors submit cost hikes quickly and cite levies

Walmart Inc. has updated the information network used daily by its suppliers to let them submit cost increases that are directly attributable to higher U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods.

The retailer introduced the tool, dubbed "Cost Change Scenario," a year ago and has been rolling it out across product categories, according to internal memos and emails obtained by Bloomberg. The online application, whose existence hasn't previously been reported, replaces Excel-based forms that vendors had to fill out manually. The new process is quicker and lets vendors choose a reason for the cost hike from a menu that includes tariffs, labor, transportation and raw materials. bloomberg.com

Billionaire Eddie Lampert to Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
Severance to workers has been paid. Singling out Sears is 'unfair'

Former Sears Chairman and CEO Eddie Lampert delivered a letter Thursday to presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep.

At NRF Protect, 3xLOGIC Showcases TRENDS,
Other Innovations for Retail

Company's AI-powered Business Intelligence software engine offers the best in actionable intelligence to reduce loss and improve operations

Westminster, CO - 11 June, 2019 - 3xLOGIC, Inc., a leading provider of integrated, intelligent security solutions, and a three-time Deloitte Technology Fast 500 winner, today announced the company will be showcasing its AI-enhanced TRENDS Business Intelligence software at the NRF Protect show - starting 11 June - among a wide array of innovations for the retail market.

3xLOGIC TRENDS is designed to meet the needs of medium to large multi-site enterprises. The software provides actionable intelligence from the massive amount of dark data available from devices such as sensors, cameras, time/attendance systems, access control devices, ATMs, point of sale, and other analytical tools. With TRENDS, real time visual indicators provide valuable information about all aspects of business operation performance; with intuitive icons, graphs, and images that can be configured specifically to meet the end user's needs. TRENDS also lets an end user track and improve metrics to optimize the success of their business in areas that include people development, operational performance and efficiency, intrusion data monitoring, and financial activity.

TRENDS generates reports that are completely customizable and present information in a way that fits the organization's operational goals. The Panda Restaurant Group has achieved impressive results after rolling out TRENDS to their 1960 locations across the US - click on the Panda Express Case Study here.

As we all know, Artificial Intelligence is here, and it seems like every company and startup is now touting their AI. Unfortunately, it's quite hard to distinguish between the hype and the true cutting-edge technology. To better understand what one should expect from an AI solution, it helps to distinguish between the basic types of AI, because it's actually very difficult to define the exact boundaries of AI. Over the last year, 3xLOGIC has been working with our Digital Accelerator Lab to define those boundaries and to incorporate their years of Artificial Intelligence expertise into the newest version of TRENDS. What would that look like? Read all about it in the attached document.

To learn more about all that 3xLOGIC has to offer the retail industry, please visit booth #733 at NRF Protect, through June 13 in Anaheim, California.





Talent Shortage Makes CISOs a Hot Commodity
Filling a CISO spot can be a slog. Companies often have unrealistic expectations for candidates' management skills and experience, according to cybersecurity experts. Not only is the cybersecurity field experiencing a talent shortage at every job level, but chief information security officer is a relatively new title near the top of a company, with a comparatively shallow pool of candidates.

"CISO is a tough position. No one can quite agree on what the requirements of it are and how to measure it," said Daniel Kennedy, research director for information security at 451 Research LLC.

Many security professionals entered the field because of their passion for technology and threat hunting, rather than for the C-suite, Ahmed Jamil, a consultant at recruiter Russell Reynolds Associates, said. "What you're looking for isn't necessarily someone who is in the weeds but rather someone who can be a true leader," he said. "The tricky part is, the market [need] has really accelerated and the talent market is still getting there." WSJ Pro

Target Tests Blockchain For Supply Chain Tracking
Retailer Target is developing an open source blockchain solution to boost transparency within supply chains, the company revealed. Reports in Cointelegraph this week pointed to an April blog post by Target VP of Architecture Joel Crabb, who revealed the retailer has already piloted blockchain technology to verify paper documents through its supply chain.

The "largest obstacle to implementing a distributed ledger is getting multiple companies to agree on which data are stored in the blockchain and how the system will be operated and governed," Crabb wrote. "To achieve this close interaction among corporate entities, many companies - including Target - see the most potential for enterprise blockchain initiatives as open source." pymnts.com

Facebook Worries Emails Could Show Zuckerberg Knew
of Questionable Privacy Practices

Facebook Inc. uncovered emails that appear to connect Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg to potentially problematic privacy practices at the company, according to people familiar with the matter.

Within the company, the unearthing of the emails in the process of responding to a continuing federal privacy investigation has raised concerns that they would be harmful to Facebook - at least from a public-relations standpoint - if they were to become public, one of the people said.

The potential impact of the internal emails has been a factor in the tech giant's desire to reach a speedy settlement of the investigation by the Federal Trade Commission, one of the people said. Facebook is operating under a 2012 consent decree with the agency related to privacy, and the emails sent around that time suggest that Mr. Zuckerberg and other senior executives didn't make compliance with the FTC order a priority. wsj.com

Organizations Investing More in Cyber Threat Intelligence
More organizations are now performing continuous threat hunting operations, according to the 2018 SANS Threat Hunting report.

Walmart announces it will fully integrate Jet's teams,
but Jet will remain a standalone brand

Three years after acquiring Jet for $3 billion, Walmart announced today that it is now more fully integrating Jet's teams into Walmart. Jet will continue to operate as a standalone brand, mainly in large cities.

In a blog post announcing the transition, Walmart Ecommerce president and CEO Marc Lore explained that the company decided to fold the rest of Jet's teams into Walmart because "Across most of the country, we saw we could get a much higher return on our marketing investments with Walmart.com, so we've dialed up our marketing spend there. However, in specific large cities where Walmart has few or no stores, Jet has become hyper focused on those urban customers." techcrunch.com

Indianapolis, IN: After 3 Vape Shop burglaries in 3 days, moms turn in their teen sons; $6,300 in merchandise stolen in latest break-in
Three teens were caught on camera as they burglarized a vape shop they aren't even old enough to buy from. They broke in twice during the same night and made off with an estimated $6,300 worth of merchandise.

Owner TJ Birdwell feels targeted because in the first burglary video, it showed three teenagers who broke in. But their mothers recognized them right away. So out of tough love, their mothers turned them in at the same time and watched metro officers arrest the boys for burglary. The other two boys are close friends ages 13 and 12 years old.

Shootings & Deaths

California deputy shot while getting food at Jack in the Box has died, officials say
Suspect In Fatal Shooting Of L.A. County Deputy Possibly Linked To SD Crimes

Southern California sheriff's deputy Joseph Gilbert Solano, who was shot and critically wounded on Monday while getting food at a fast-food restaurant, has died, officials announced. Solano, a 13-year-veteran deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, died Wednesday afternoon surrounded by loved ones.

Rhett Nelson, a 30-year-old Utah man who his family had reported missing, was identified as the suspected gunman, investigators said. He was arrested a day after the shooting when his father called authorities to turn him in.

Nelson was suspected of walking into a Jack in the Box restaurant in the eastern Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra on Monday night and shooting Solano in the head. The 50-year-old deputy was off duty at the time. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital in grave condition and doctors put him on life support, Villanueva said. Solano was not wearing anything that would identify him as a law-enforcement officer and investigators said the shooting appeared to be random.

Nelson is also suspected in a fatal shooting in downtown Los Angeles that occurred about 4:50 p.m. Monday, roughly one hour before Solano was shot. Los Angeles County sheriff's officials on Wednesday morning released a mugshot of Nelson, saying they suspect he may have been involved in other crimes and encouraging anyone who may have been victimized by him to come forward.

According to San Diego police, Nelson is being investigated in connection with five crimes that occurred over a three-day period in San Diego, Lemon Grove and Carlsbad.  foxnews.com kpbs.org

New Orleans, LA: Store owner says it took police days to show up after robbery
Imagine you're going shopping and a robbery happens inside the store. You call 911, they say police are on their way, but no one shows up. Some shop owners on Magazine Street say something similar is happening and it's leaving them worried that the lack of response could affect anyone in New Orleans. "I was just trying to play it safe, and call NOPD as soon as they walk out," she said. "The dispatcher said, 'ma'am, we need you to go back to your store an officer is on their way.'" Hines said she waited, but no one ever showed up that night. "I know things can happen anywhere but the assumption is the police are going to show up if something does happen," Hines said. "I'm just really upset right now like you know with the complacency of NOPD." She said an officer finally came by Sunday evening and reviewed surveillance video. wwltv.com

Sometimes when you're moving so fast and dealing with the mistakes of the day, the frustration levels peak and one can tend to forget that sometimes you've just got to stop, listen and take a breath and maybe talk to a friend about it all. If it's a good friend, they'll bring you back into focus and make sure you don't react too aggressively and make the mistakes even worst. There aren't many friends like that nor ones that you can absolutely trust. But if you've got a couple, make sure you thank them as well for taking the time.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
