New Wave of 'Low-Tech' Terrorism
A 'Mental Rehearsal' Could Save Your Employee & Customers' Lives

The usual suspects, like the difficulty that law enforcement agencies still have in sharing critical homeland security data and the mistrust of some communities, along with the ease with which terror groups can recruit, continues to make stopping "low-tech" terror a difficult proposition.

A new wave of terror, a more low-tech version such as guns, knives and vehicles, has become the common threat and so difficult to prevent. There is often no network of affiliates and the perpetrator is often acting alone, having been radicalized locally, perhaps via the Internet.

Collection of intelligence is the best way to try to prevent this type of attack, which is the most likely in the United States, but it is still fraught with difficulties.

"The way that's being tried now, the collection of intelligence of potential threats, is our best hope, but the problem is developing those effective relationships and that trust in communities; will they come forward with information?" said Bill Sullivan, assistant professor of Homeland Security at Eastern Kentucky University and a former major with the Kentucky State Police.

He said also that the information is still in silos, making it even more difficult to share even with the intent to do so. "Everyone has their own database that they push and they really aren't connected."
There are things that can be done to protect against new threats like the vehicle. Sullivan said constructing barriers, such as giant planters or trees that can protect pedestrians is a strategy.

One key that needs to be discussed is the personal responsibility of having situational awareness. Sullivan said hesitation or lack of awareness, such as being glued to a phone, can get people killed.

People should be aware of their surroundings, what the possible dangers could be and do a "mental rehearsal" of a plan in case of the worst-case scenario like being in a movie theater and confronting an active shooter situation. Having that situational awareness and that mental plan of what my actions are going to be is going to decrease or eliminate the hesitation, and the hesitation is quite often what ends up getting you killed." govtech.com

Retailers to Lose $71 Billion in CNP Fraud Over the Next Five Years
EMV Shift - 3DS 2.0 Delay - Click-and-Collect Fraud

New data from Juniper Research has found that retailers stand to lose $71 billion globally from fraudulent CNP (Card-Not-Present) transactions over the next five years. The research found that a number of factors, such as the USA's shift to EMV cards, delays in 3DS 2.0 (3D-Secure) and click-and-collect fraud were key drivers behind the rise.

Juniper's latest research, Online Payment Fraud: Emerging Threats, Key Vertical Strategies & Market Forecasts 2017-2022 found that many merchants still perceive combatting fraud as too expensive. Consequently, they have been ill-prepared to deal with the shift to online fraud following the introduction of EMV (CHIP and signature) payment cards in the USA.

Nevertheless, Juniper's cost analysis of FDP (fraud detection and prevention) solutions found that in most instances, merchants would receive value from their investment. The analyst house therefore urged players across the value chain to increase their efforts in educating merchants on the benefits of FDP.

Additionally, the research forecast that fraudulent CNP physical goods sales will reach $14.8 billion annually in 2022. It argued that click-and-collect services were particularly vulnerable given the lack of a residential delivery address. Meanwhile, retailers are reluctant to impose rigorous ID checks on pick-up for fear of damaging the consumer experience and reducing conversion rates.

The research predicted that three key battlegrounds would emerge in the fight against fraud in 2018. It cited machine learning as a key tool in identifying genuine users, while the shift to mobile eCommerce would rely on 3DS 2.0 and biometrics. prnewswire.com
Pressure on HBC to Sell Manhattan's Flagship Saks Fifth Ave Property & More
After taking a 4.3% stake in retail holding company Hudson's Bay, the hedge fund Land & Buildings Investment Management pressed the retailer's board of directors in a letter Monday to "aggressively" monetize its real estate portfolio. Land & Buildings founder and Chief Information Officer Jonathan Litt, who signed the letter, proposed Hudson's Bay sell its "crown jewels" - among them its Saks Fifth Avenue store property on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue.

It "is likely one of the most valuable locations not only in Manhattan, but in the United States." More provocatively, Litt posed the question: "Is the best use of this location truly a department store?" (Hudson's Bay did not respond to a request for comment.)

Litt also suggested that selling off Hudson's Bay's real estate - which for the retailer could mean losing control and occupancy of some of its most prized and profitable stores - could help fund a transaction to take the company private.

In a press release Monday, Hudson's Bay acknowledged it had received and was reviewing the letter and "will respond in due course." retaildive.com

Whole Foods CEO hints at another brand under Amazon
After Amazon.com Inc completes its takeover of high-end grocer Whole Foods Market Inc, it might launch another brand with different standards, the grocery chain's chief executive said in remarks reported in a securities filing on Monday.

Amazon plans to keep the natural grocer's high standards, Whole Foods Chief Executive John Mackey said, adding, "They're not stupid enough to go change that." The filing contained a transcript of a town hall meeting for Whole Foods employees.

But Mackey, at the Friday town hall, said, "Over time, there could be other formats that evolve that - that might - wouldn't be branded Whole Foods Market, potentially, wouldn't be our standards." reuters.com

Amazon's Whole Foods Buy Unlikely To Face Antitrust Hurdles
Despite public criticism that Amazon was already too powerful before its push further into brick-and-mortar retail with the acquisition of Whole Foods, the $13.7 billion planned acquisition is unlikely to face a government antitrust challenge given their limited head-to-head competition.

The head of think tank New America's Open Markets Program, Barry Lynn, called on the government to block the merger and investigate Amazon for anti-competitive practices. Lynn warned that the company "already dominates every corner of online commerce [and] wields vastly too much power over America's markets for books and music." law360.com

Aeropostale Sues Purchasers Over $1.3M Vendor Deposit
Clothing retailer Aeropostale on Friday told a New York bankruptcy court the companies it retained to sell off its inventory are violating their contract by failing to return a $1.3 million vendor deposit.

Aeropostale filed an adversary proceeding against retail store liquidators Gordon Brothers Retail Partners LLC and Hilco Merchant Resources LLC, saying they breached a 2016 asset sale agreement by failing to return a deposit Aeropostale put down on a shipment of goods Gordon Brothers and Hilco had ultimately purchased. law360.com

THE TRANSPORTED Asset Protection Association (TAPA) will mark its 20th anniversary with its biggest-ever global conference to consider how new technologies, changing consumer demands and the responses of manufacturers and logistics service providers will impact on the future of supply chain security.

The two-day event in London on 25-26 October, 2017 is expected to attract around 500 supply chain security professionals. Delegates will hear how the increased use of technologies in the supply chain such as robotics in warehouses, driverless trucks, drones and 3D printing are expected to result in a growing threat from increasingly technically-advanced criminal gangs that continue to see goods in transit as an "easy target". impactpub.com

Incident Response is Like Investigating a Burglary
Find out what is necessary as you respond to a breach

Incident response is like investigating a real burglary. You look for evidence of the intruder at the crime scene, find his targets and his getaway car, and repair any holes. Discover any cuts in your chain link fence. Take a few steps back for more perspective. Find the intruder's targets. What assets are near the compromised fence? Investigate in both directions to find the intruder's target and getaway car. Fix the fence. Resolve any issues and patch vulnerabilities.

Most common incident response problems
Very few incident response investigations go 100 percent smoothly. Some of the most common problems include the incident response/security staff are not adequately trained to handle breaches or the organization is "shellshock" or in paralysis. Incident response teams are some time without the right organizational representation and lack network or resource visibility. There can also be insufficient skills or tools to perform packet-based network forensics and no process in place to identify and store "suspicious" packets for later investigation.

... if your team isn't well prepared, support them!
Understand and accept that breaches will happen. Conduct regular tabletop exercises. Do scenario-based walkthroughs every quarter and allocate budget toward IR and detection.

Solve organizational "shock"
Don't let shock paralyze the organization when a breach is discovered. Have an action plan ready, and focus on mitigating and resolving the breach. Maintain internal communication is key - keep all IT security staff and other stakeholders informed.

Make sure your IR team includes:
Make sure your incident response team includes members of the following departments: HR, PR, Legal, Administration, IT and IT security, corporate security and senior management. Don't leave any teams out in the cold. Consistent communication and sharing of expertise are critical.

Representation of organizational footprint
Get an accurate representation of your digital enterprise now! A network map should include entry points, exit points, etc. Ensure that IT has the tools it needs. Ensure that IT security has the tools it needs.

Perform network and packet forensics
Security analysts are good at correlating events over short periods, as long as data is available. Now we need to become better at correlating events over long periods of time, which is how long it takes most breaches to be discovered. Have experts on speed dial. Have tools that can store "suspicious" packets for long periods. csoonline.com

Rise of Nation State Threats: How Can Businesses Respond?
Foreign cybercriminals pose a growing threat to enterprise targets, making risk management critical for commercial and government organizations facing increasingly dangerous attacks, according to the findings of a new report detailing the changes in threat actors and their tactics, activities, and motivations over the past six months.

Researchers discovered that activity among disruptive actors has quieted in 2017 as law enforcement cracks down on key groups and historical targets improve their security practices. Cybercriminals continued to target organizations this year as a means of collecting personal data and money from large businesses, particularly in healthcare.

Cybercrime isn't only about stealing data for geopolitics or espionage, says Kellermann. Cybercriminals also aim to change and destroy data, which can have broad implications for businesses. He likens this to a burglar burning down a house after taking what they want.

After hackers pillage a brand's intellectual property, they can use the brand and its customers' trust to turn consumers away through business email compromise, malware-laced emails, and other forms of cybercrime. darkreading.com

Forty-six percent of those in the U.S. said they were duped by a phishing email compared to 17% in the U.K. Asked what malware is, 30% of U.S. respondents said it is computer hardware that boosts a wifi signal; 6% in the U.K. gave that answer. Sixty-one percent in the U.S. knew what malware is, while 78% of U.K. workers did. wsj.com

Nevada senate approves Internet privacy bill
Governor Sandoval signed into law a bill that requires internet operators to disclose what types of personal information they collect from users. The law defines internet operators as anyone who "owns or operates an internet website or online service for commercial purposes" and collects personal information from a resident of Nevada. Personal information is defined as: first and last name, home or other physical address, email, telephone number, social security number or any other identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online. The law also requires internet operators to disclose information on any third party contractors who may be collecting the covered information. jurist.org

Big Prize in Amazon-Whole Foods Deal: Data
Amazon for years has been looking for more ways to gather information about how consumers shop. It has long been rumored to be on the prowl for a breakthrough deal, even as it set up its own much smaller Amazon Go and AmazonFresh Pickup stores as experiments. If the deal goes through, the combination likely will be powerful. Amazon and Whole Foods can join their online and in-store knowledge to better predict what goods to carry in each store. wsj.com

Maximizing Education at Professional Conferences - Part II

By Walt Palmer, CFI, CFI, CPP
PCG Solutions

Attendance at an industry conferences offers several opportunities - education, networking, vendor exhibit halls, one on one meetings with other attendees, and, of course, many receptions and social events. Each of these activities can bring value to your professional development, but, this week, I want to focus on how you maximize the amount of professional education you achieve at a conference.

Educational Sessions

Unfortunately, too many attendees give short shrift to the educational sessions. At events like FMI, NRF, and RILA, you will probably have twenty or more sessions to choose from over the course of 2-3 days. At bigger trade shows, like ASIS or the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), the sessions actually number in the 100's.

Now, will every session appeal to you? Of course not. Most associations intentionally try to cover a spectrum of topics to ensure they address the concerns of a somewhat diverse attendee list, but there may be slots where you feel like there is nothing particularly relevant to you or your organization. Here's my recommendation in that situation, "Attend a session anyway!"

Maybe, just maybe, it is possible that a session on developing an effective training program on safety in the distribution network might yield some insights for you as you develop a training program for the stores on shrink. Perhaps a session on managing investigators in the field might ring a bell with you as to a technique or method you can use to manage direct reports at the corporate office. Hearing what someone is doing in the grocery store business relative to spoilage might lead you to different thinking on how you manage damages in your environment.

Using big data and technology
Behind Alibaba's mission to reduce counterfeit goods
Alibaba has released its annual report for platform governance, revealing that in 2016 it seized counterfeit goods worth three billion yuan, double the value of goods seized the previous year.

Alibaba says this is because the company has been making significant investments into proactively seeking out breaches in copyright on its ecommerce platforms, rather than relying on reactive complaints.

According to the report, in 2016 the proactive cases were 26 times higher than the number of reactive cases, whereas in 2015 the number was just eight times higher.

Speaking to The Drum about the report, Jessie Zheng, Alibaba Group chief platform governance officer, said the upward trend in the data was due to the use of technology to find information and supply leads to the police, as well as introducing the use of litigation within its anti-counterfeit toolbox.

"We spare no expense and manpower to upgrade our team. We are not only the operator of the largest marketplaces globally, we are also a leader in protecting IPR on ecommerce marketplaces. No other company in the world has been dedicated as much resources ranging from technology, people and partnerships with brands, governments and law enforcement to fight the counterfeits that plague both online and offline commerce," she said

The counterfeit goods issue isn't only Alibaba's issue and many in the industry have questioned whether China, as a country, has a reputation around IP regulatory issues, with some even questioning the impact it has on homegrown Chinese brands. Jack Ma himself has said that fake goods create "havoc" for innovation in China.

The missing link for Alibaba now, however, is tougher laws. "The online world is a microcosm of society at large. Problems that we see on the internet are often a manifestation of social problems that used to be hidden and scattered in the offline world. Maintaining the health of any ecosystem, online or offline, requires the contribution of all stakeholders involved. Brands, e-commerce platforms, and law enforcement personnel must work closely together for a healthy business and social environment. thedrum.com

U.K. Sees Card-Not-Present Purchases Soar
A new report from the U.K. Cards Association (UKCA) finds that the amount of purchases made through debit and credit cards has more than doubled in the past decade. There were 6.7 billion purchases made by credit and debit cards in 2006, and last year, U.K. shoppers brought the number up to 16.4 billion.

What's helping to drive these U.K. card-not-present transactions is a combination of online spending and contactless payments. The UKCA data show that 39 percent of card purchases were done through these two methods in 2016. The year before, the rate was 24 percent. pymnts.com
