Canada's - Shoppers Drug Mart's third party provider - store Loss Prevention officer charged with extortion - Caught on surveillance camera planting merchandise and extorting customer   A security guard has been charged with allegedly framing a store customer for shoplifting, Toronto Police said Thursday. Police were called on June 9 by a man who said he was shopping in a store when a loss prevention officer allegedly placed an item of merchandise into the man’s bag without his knowledge. After the man made his purchase and exited the store the security guard placed him under arrest and said the police wouldn’t be called if the shopper handed over a “significant” amount of cash, police alleged. The shopper handed over a quantity of cash and the security guard let him go without calling police. The guard was charged after being “caught on surveillance,” Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu alleged. Azeem Khan, 20, of Brampton has been charged with extortion. Police said they believe there may be more victims. (Source torontosun.com)

White paper: Integrating item level RFID with LP
In 2011, retail shrinkage totaled more than $119 billion, with shoplifting accounting for more than $51 billion in losses. As retailers discover the benefits of improved inventory visibility from deploying RFID, many are looking at integrating RFID technology into their loss prevention strategies. The integration of item level RFID information and loss prevention data creates a real-time understanding of what, when, and how specific items go missing. Tyco refers to this new understanding Shrink Visibility, combining information from Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS), video surveillance, and new RFID inventory-visibility technology to give a complete picture of loss events — at the SKU level and in full context — at the moment they occur. Among other things, Shrink Visibility helps retailers to track and manage retail shrinkage from all sources, in real time, and to differentiate between actual store shrink and other forms of inventory distortion.

FBI, NYPD form task force to go after cyber-criminals
They will use an anti-terrorism task force model that was used to hunt down the Times Square bomber. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York Police Department plan to use an anti-terrorism task force model that helped hunt down the Times Square bomber to go after computer hackers and scammers. The financial cybercrime task force, which also includes law enforcement officers from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, will be modeled after the Joint Terrorism Task Force, or JTTF, and operate out of the FBI's offices in Lower Manhattan, George Venizelos, head of the FBI's New York office, said in a statement Thursday. FBI agents in New York have recently been involved in cyber crime investigations that resulted in the prosecution of members of the hacker group "Anonymous." FBI agents also investigated individuals tied to Silk Road, the billion-dollar online website where customers used bitcoins to buy and sell drugs, according to the U.S. (Source crainsnewyork.com)

American Express customers receiving new breach notifications - another un-named merchant hit  The letters (mostly identical in wording) are due to two separate incidents, but the full impact is unclear - as the exact number of customers set to receive these notices isn't known. In one letter, the customer is warned that their American Express account number, name, and other card information, such as expiration date, were exposed after someone accessed a merchant's systems without authorization. The second notification letter going out to American Express customers concerns an incident at Createthe Group. It's worded exactly the same as the other letter, including the types of information compromised. (Source csoonline.com)

CHPA praises Michigan legislature that would curb meth-related crimes - creating block list of known offenders from buying pseudoephedrine  The Consumer Healthcare Products Association applauded the Michigan legislature, which seeks to address the state's methamphetamine problem by targeting meth criminals. The Michigan House and Senate passed a package of bills authored by Sen. John Proos as well as Reps. Amanda Price, Bob Genetski, and Aric Nesbitt that will equip law enforcement officials with tools to crack down on meth-related crime. The legislation includes a meth offender block list and a measure that will broaden the criminal penalty for "smurfing," where individuals purchase pseudoephedrine-containing medicines on behalf of a meth cook.

Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report Available now
Gain fresh insight into cyber espionage and denial-of-service attacks in the 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR). "We have more incidents, more sources, and more variation than ever before—and trying to approach tens of thousands of incidents using the same techniques simply won’t cut it. Not only would the dominant incident characteristics drown out the subtleties of the less frequent varieties, but we cannot continue to study those characteristics as though they occur in isolation. In order to expose latent patterns in the data, we applied a statistical clustering technique. We identified nine patterns that together describe 92% of the confirmed data breaches we collected in 2013. We find it simply astounding that nine out of ten of all breaches observed by 50 global organizations over a full year can be described by nine distinct patterns.” (Source verizonenterprise.com)

Hackers target online retailers, and not just the big ones
Many small and midsized retailers assume hackers won’t bother with them. But criminals have figured out small companies are easier to penetrate, and go after them frequently, warns a security expert. In the 2014 Trustwave Global Security Report, retail was the top industry compromised, making up 35% of the attacks investigated. And 54% of those attacks were against e-commerce sites, where hackers target servers and databases that host card data. However, many online retailers still seriously underestimate the [black] market value of the data they possess and handle. Just take a look at Pastebin.com—the simple online text storage and sharing platform is being used by hackers to store stolen information. (Source internetretailer.com)

QR codes preferred to NFC for retail POS payment solution
To make a payment, consumers must first download the redy app, which is required in order to be able to scan the quick response code that is displayed on the Samsung redy tablet located at the POS. Bendigo Bank patrons can connect the redy app directly to their savings account. Those who are not clients of the financial institution can link the app to their MasterCard or Visa account. To help ensure the security of customers, every QR code is uniquely and automatically generated by Bendigo Bank’s system each time a new transaction is processed. In addition, the receipts from transactions remain on the app, so the customer’s personal data and shopping information is not distributed to the merchant. (Source mobilecommercepress.com)

Target Canada employees issue mea culpa in new video  Target Canada knows it screwed up when it arrived here last year, employees admit in a new video from the mass merchant, but it’s here for the long run. A company video shared in social media by president Mark Schindele carries an apologetic tone and a commitment to turn things around while putting to rest any rumors that the rival to Walmart may give up on its operations in this country. “Certainly, we think that we have disappointed our Canadian guests,” says Damien Liddle, senior corporate counsel, echoing a promise to do better voiced by multiple employees in the two-minute clip. The internal video does not feature Mr. Schindele, a veteran operations executive who was brought in from the retailer’s U.S. executive team after the ouster of Tony Fisher from the role last month.

Canada's Entry Point - Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Center - Most Foreign Retailers Start There - Forecasted to Become North America's Top Selling Mall by 2018  Last year, over a third of all first locations for retailers entering Canada were at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Yorkdale has been Canada's entry point for many foreign retailers for a number of years. Its latest mall expansion, anchored by a 188,000 square foot Nordstrom store, will see even more first-to-market retailers between now and 2016. It's no wonder that the mall is forecasted to become North America's top-selling mall by 2018. Several other first-to-Canada retailers for Yorkdale include Canada's first Apple Store (2005), GEOX (2005), Bath & Body Works (2008) and Crate & Barrel (2008).  (Source retail-insider.com)

Big Data's immediate impact on traditional Loss Prevention
Newer technologies like hosted video produce a lot of important information for retailers to analyze, which begins the “big data” discussion. Big data means a lot of things, but essentially it means better, deeper and more accurate information. More information can mean better decisions and improved results, if used intelligently and analyzed correctly. One solution combines technologies like electronic article surveillance (EAS) and radio frequency identification (RFID) to help retailers have this more in-depth analysis. The two technologies have been around for a long time, and are well-known throughout the industry as separate, effective solutions but have now evolved to create another cost-efficient solution that has retailers seeing more detail at the item level. Using this solution, they are able to gather new data sets that offer real-time intelligence about everything from what has gone missing to how much is needed on the shelf. With new dual EAS and RFID technology tags that deliver both the security and inventory visibility, retailers can use these well-known technologies together to increase inventory accuracy and understand behaviors even better. Ensuring inventory accuracy along with loss accuracy is a key source of managing shrink for retailers, and by focusing on efficient solutions like the dual technology tag, they can effectively minimize costs by maximizing visibility.

Retail Analytics Technology Takes Off
Part of the Verint video surveillance offering includes retail analytics, which is helping to change the way retailers do business. In the dynamic retail market, video analytics are becoming increasingly popular as retailers seek to streamline operations and increase efficiency. Verint's surveillance analytics capabilities can help retailers gain invaluable information about their customers, the impact of marketing and merchandising efforts, and the root causes of shrink and other common problems. For a closer look at the growing field of retail analytics, read this Q&A with Janna Finch, managing editor at Software Advice. (Source verint.com)

CVS stores among favorite targets for Orlando robbers  CVS stores among favorite targets for Orlando robbers. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Wednesday that deputies arrested five men connected to 40 violent crimes dating back to December 2013. What stands out is that more than a dozen of those robberies targeted CVS stores specifically, so Channel 9's Kenneth Craig went out with a law enforcement and security expert on Thursday in effort to figure out why those stores may have been targeted. "They're hitting places where they have the highest probability of getting more money, and that would be a CVS," said law enforcement expert Mark Lang. According to Lang, a former sheriff's office captain, overall security doesn't appear to be the problem and that it's rather the chain itself that's attracting the crooks. Investigators said the armed robberies were the work of seven different men that were part of two organized groups, both of which targeted the pharmacy chain multiple times. (Source wftv.com)

Lyndhurst jeweler admits role in $200M credit card fraud scheme

WG's Seal Tag

Stop 'Wardrobing' with WG's Proven Seal Tag

See sales increase and returns reduced dramatically

All while keeping your customers happy and honest!

They'll even thank you for it!

Retailers are already seeing increased sales

Recently, news outlets such as ABC News, Bloomberg Businessweek, Fox, and even the Daily Mail in the U.K., published stories about the new and exciting method Bloomingdale's has initiated to fight the scourge of wardrobing. According to these stories and citing the National Retail Federation, wardrobing is a form of fraud that cost retailers $8.8 billion last year. While Bloomingdale's is to be commended for an outside-the-box way to reduce shrinkage, what you don't know is that this revolutionary wardrobing prevention plan was a collaborative effort between Bloomingdale's and WG Security Products Inc., the California-based company that has developed a reputation over the last 15 years for innovative and original EAS technologies.

The device in use at Bloomingdale's locations throughout the nation to stop wardrobers in their tracks is the Seal Tag, available now from WG. It is not an EAS tag, but a one-time use device which is typically applied at the point of sale, to a noticeable area of the garment. Customers are instructed that removal of the Seal Tag voids any return policy. This prevents customers from wearing the garment for a day and attempting a return, therefore ensuring honest returns. The Seal tag is very easily removed by hand and once removed, cannot be re-applied. It can be personalized, with your business logo imprinted on the front, adding a degree of elegance. You can watch our video for more information about wardrobing and the Seal Tag.

        As seen around the nation in dozens of news channels!

  With 'wardrobing' costing you millions - the Seal Tag is the answer

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,
