Retail and restaurant loss prevention have more in common than you think
At the NRF PROTECT Loss Prevention Conference and Expo, executives from Au Bon Pain, Panera Bread and Five Below showed how comparable the approaches to asset protection can be.

Joe Sherman, director of loss prevention at Au Bon Pain, described how he's worked to overcome being a loss prevention department of one. Sherman has committed himself to breaking through silos to connect with internal departments. Operations, facilities, marketing and others are working more closely than ever with the loss prevention side of the organization.

The challenge for Mike Keller, manager of loss prevention analytics at Panera Bread, is very much the same. "Our team's structure and roles come from experience and observations in retail," he said. Keller is one of three loss prevention professionals for the company, whose team was built on optimizing its execution of exception-based reporting. Data from those reports have helped educate other teams at Panera, at the corporate and store level, on how to spot and reduce food cost problems - akin to inventory shrink for non-food retail.

Challenges presented by limited resources require outside-the-box thinking. Five Below Senior Director of Asset Protection Gregg Smith used a clip from the film Moneyball to ask the audience: How can you look at processes differently - analytically - to maximize resources? "It's not about focusing on 100 things," Smith said. "It's about focusing on a few things and streamlining those processes." nrf.com

Retailers reconsider metal detectors, wands, and other security measures following Orlando mass shooting
Industry executives say the scope of the Orlando attack may lead more U.S. businesses, especially big ones, to invest in physical security measures already in place at sports stadiums, government buildings and airports. Those include upfront expenses like equipment and training as well as ongoing costs such as wages for guards.

Disney, for example, already has metal detectors at its theme parks as of 2015. So did Sea World and Universal Orlando, and all three theme parks have stepped up security since the Orlando attacks. (Disney's alligator attack not withstanding.)

This week, a large U.S. retailer contacted First Texas Products to launch a test of its hand-held security wands, which start at around $100 each, in 50 stores. "They specifically mentioned the Orlando shootings," Walsh said in an email. He declined to name the client.

Michael Gips of ASIS International, an association that represents more than 35,000 security professionals worldwide, said many businesses "roll the dice" over physical security.

ASIS International estimates U.S. private sector spending on security goods and services jumped 18% to $377 billion in 2015 from 2013 and is "pushing $400 billion" this year, Gips said. Much of that growth has been driven by spending on surveillance equipment and on cyber protections following high-profile data breaches, such as the one that hit retailer Target in 2013. fortune.com

Ex-TJ Maxx VP Settles SEC Claims He Traded On Inside Info
A former regional vice president at retailer T.J. Maxx made a deal with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday to settle allegations that he bought stock in its parent company before favorable financial announcements - and then sold it quickly for a profit, according to papers filed in Massachusetts federal court. James Hannon, while not admitting or denying the allegations, agreed to disgorge $26,679 in profits along with $3,008 in prejudgment interest, according to an agreement filed Monday. In addition, he consented to pay a civil penalty of $26,679, according to the court papers. law360.com

NJ Mall Insurer Looks To Force Coverage Over Atty Shooting
An insurer for The Mall at Short Hills has sued another carrier to wrangle additional coverage in the fatal shooting of an attorney during a 2013 carjacking at the New Jersey property, arguing that coverage for the mall's security contractor extends to the mall's owners.

National Surety Corp. wants a court ruling that First Specialty Insurance Corp.'s $2 million policy applies equally to both the mall's owners, Michigan-based Taubman Centers, Inc., and the security company, and that FSIC has a "continued duty to defend" Taubman for the claims asserted in a lawsuit from the widow of attorney Dustin Friedland.

National Surety is an excess insurer for Taubman, while FSIC provides coverage for security company California-based Universal Protection Service LLC, according to the complaint filed June 6 in Essex County Superior Court.

The coverage issue is tied to the lawsuit Jamie Schare Friedland filed in March 2014 against Taubman, Universal Protection and other defendants in connection with the Dec. 15, 2013, killing of her husband at the upscale mall in Millburn. Taubman was included as "additional insured" under the FSIC policy, the complaint states.

But FSIC has said it will only pay up to the $2 million policy limit on behalf of Universal Protection or Taubman, but not equally on behalf of both entities, according to the complaint. Once the insurer hits that limit to pay for judgments or settlements, FSIC claims "its right and duty to defend the mall defendants ends," the complaint states. law360.com

Wegmans facing $140K fine after workplace injury
OSHA's Buffalo-area office said on Monday that the grocery store chain failed to train employees on how to properly turn off and clean a conveyor belt and roller system at its Brooks Avenue bakery, where a woman broke several bones in her arm and hand in December.

He said the agency has repeatedly cited Wegmans for issues at its bakery, including incidents in 2015 where an employee suffered a first-degree burn and another lost a portion of a finger. OSHA also has cited Wegmans in 2007, 2010 and 2011 for other work-related hazards.  

Bass Pro Loses 5th Circ. Bid to Escape Discrimination Suit
Bass Pro Outdoor World Inc. lost its bid to dodge allegations from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of hiring discrimination against minorities in the Fifth Circuit on Friday, with a panel affirming the agency could seek damages while alleging a pattern of discrimination. The EEOC alleges Bass Pro violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by failing to hire black or Hispanic employees. In April 2010, the company issued a letter of determination saying it had identified at least 100 people who were victims of discriminatory hiring and filed the lawsuit the following fall, without naming the individuals. law360.com

Highly targeted Social Engineering attacks are wreaking havoc in cybersecurity. In one recent incident hackers used Social Engineering to defraud a US company out of nearly $100 million. The increased use of these techniques is directly related to the fact that they work. Traditional cybersecurity defenses do not stop these types of attacks and many organizations are ill prepared to prevent Social Engineering related breaches. Join our session as we explore how Social Engineering is manipulating users and discuss the top preventative strategies.

Chargebacks are Spiking
Small Retailers $10k to $15k in Weekly
Large Retailers $1M in Weekly

Since the October 2015 EMV liability shift, many retailers are experiencing an outrageous increase in chargebacks, mostly erroneous. Mike Lindberg, payment solutions manager at CHS Inc., commented at the 2016 Conexxus Annual Meeting in May that some smaller retailers have reported a $10,000 to $15,000 increase in chargebacks per week, while larger retailers are experiencing $1 million in chargebacks per week.

"I can't imagine what will happen at the pump come October 2017," said Lindberg, adding that the No. 1 chargeback reason code since October 2015 is "merchandise not received." Some retailers are even seeing multiple chargebacks on the same credit card. Lindberg said CHS has ramped up its chargeback processes since so many are questionable, noting that retailers can also implement other processes, like transaction risk scoring and zip code entry, that allow them to combat this type of fraud. nacsonline.com

Do third-party vendors have a bullseye on their backs?
Because there are so many different kinds of third parties, identifying whether they do or don't have the right infrastructure or security protocols can be a challenge. Moreover, doing the proper due diligence needed to vet third-party vendors can be costly and time consuming.

As so many organizations rely on a variety of different providers, third parties can become the gateways to the network. In order to mitigate the risk of a breach from a third party, enterprises need to design a vetting process and understand the language of the service-level agreemen in order to best evaluate their contracts.  csoonline.com

Boards ready to fire over bad security reporting
If CISOs don't do a good job of communicating, 59 percent of board members said that the security executives stand to lose their jobs, according to a new survey released.

It marks an inflection point in how the boards look at cybersecurity, he said.

Previously, boards looked at breaches as an act of God or natural disaster, he said, or just fired the CISO even if the breach was not something they could have prevented.  "Now they're treating it as a risk management concern," he said. "It's a mind change."

CISOs are expected to have good security processes in place, to do their due diligence, and to take care of the fundamentals.  csoonline.com

FAA completes landmark rules for commercial drones
New drone rules from the Federal Aviation Administration limit small commercial drone operations to daylight hours and require operators to get certified every two years. The rules, made public Tuesday, mark the FAA's first attempt at a comprehensive plan to ensure the popular remote-controlled aircraft can safely share the skies with commercial craft.

The FAA's 624-page rulebook allows commercial drones weighing up to 55 pounds to fly during daylight hours and lower than 400 feet in the air. The aircraft must remain within sight of the operator or an observer who is in communication with the operator. The operators must be at least 16 years old and pass an aeronautics test every 24 months for a certificate.

FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said evening operations will be allowed if the aircraft carries lights visible for 3 miles. Night-time flights, flights beyond what the operator can see or flights over people not associated with the operation could be approved by waiver if the applicant demonstrates how the flights will be safe, Huerta said.

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, a trade group, projected 70,000 jobs and $13.6 billion in economic impact will be created in the U.S. three years after drones are allowed to fully share the skies. For example, Amazon, Google and Walmart are each testing using drones for deliveries. usatoday.com

Cisco launches $10M cyber security scholarship

Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP) Now Live in Durham and Kernersville, N.C.

Vector Security customers will benefit from improved accuracy and speed of emergency response

PITTSBURGH, June 21, 2016 - Now that Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP) is live in Durham and Kernersville, North Carolina, many homes and businesses that use monitored alarm services - including nearly 1,700 Vector Security customers - will benefit from the technology that improves the accuracy and speed of emergency response.

ASAP works by delivering alarm notification information from central monitoring stations directly to public safety answering points (PSAPs) via computer, rather than by phone. This eliminates the need for communication between monitoring centers and 911 operators, resulting in faster emergency response and reduced errors. It also allows better allocation of resources for responding agencies.

Transmitting data electronically speeds up alarm notification delivery, and reduces the number of phone calls and processing time. It also eliminates human error and miscommunication between operators because all pertinent data goes directly to first responders within seconds.

ASAP to PSAP was created in partnership with the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO), with Vector Security President and CEO Pam Petrow co-chairing the steering committee. Vector Security was the first alarm company to use ASAP in the City of Richmond, VA in 2012.

"ASAP allows first responders to answer emergencies faster due to improved speed and accuracy of information transmitted," said Bill Hobgood, an ASAP implementation consultant to both Durham and Kernersville. "This saves precious time in an emergency, helping us better protect the community. Vector Security worked with us on extensive testing on this project."

Fighting ORC in California
Closing The Prop. 47 Loophole That's Boosting Organized Crime
By Assemblyman Tom Lackey
California State Assembly, 36th District
Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

When California voters passed Proposition 47 in 2014, they did it with good intentions. By changing non-violent crimes like theft, forgery, and drug possession from felonies to misdemeanors, voters hoped to focus corrections resources on hardened criminals, while funding crime prevention programs and rehabilitating low-level offenders.

Unfortunately, the reality of Prop. 47 hasn't lined up with the lofty expectations. Career criminals have found loopholes in the law that allow them to avoid facing any serious consequences for their behavior. For example, organized crime groups have exploited the reduced punishments for property crimes, causing that type of offense to spike dramatically.

Shoplifting, in particular, has exploded under the new sentencing rules. While some consider it a minor crime, retail theft has real consequences for its victims. This is especially so for small, locally owned businesses, which already face a razor-thin profit margin. Right now, as long as a shoplifter only steals $950 worth of goods at a time, they cannot be charged with a felony. Organized crime groups have figured this out, sending low-level criminals on multiple shoplifting trips with little fear of a lengthy jail sentence if caught. Business owners have even reported thieves walking in with calculators to ensure they stay under the $950 threshold. In some areas, the situation has gotten so bad that the police have stopped arresting shoplifters because they don't face any jail time.

To fight this, Assemblyman Scott Wilk and I have introduced a bill that would fix Prop. 47, close this loophole, and allow law enforcement to fight organized crime. If this reform is enacted, it would allow prosecutors to charge a shoplifter with a felony if they are found to have stolen more than $950 worth of goods over the course of six months. It would also allow prosecutors to go after growing shoplifting syndicates with conspiracy charges - a charge that carries far more weight than misdemeanor theft.

This bill would not make a felon out of a teenager caught stealing a soda. When voters passed Prop. 47, they were clear they didn't want that. What it would do is give the police and prosecutors the tools they need to fight organized criminals that prey on businesses. It's a common-sense measure that respects the spirit of Prop. 47 while protecting people from sophisticated criminals. foxandhoundsdaily.com

U.K. Businesses Lose 1 Billion Pounds ($1.6B USD) in Online Fraud,
'Mandate Fraud' on the Rise

U.K. businesses lost 1.1 billion pounds (USD $1.6 billion) in the 12 months ending March 2016, according to a report from government fraud reporting agency Action Fraud and fraud prevention initiative Get Safe Online. The number of cybercrimes reported to Action Fraud increased 22 percent during that time. While many of the crimes are phishing scams or internal fraud perpetrated by employees, a pernicious cousin of account takeover has become especially "worrying," officials said. Subscription businesses and their customers are increasingly falling victim to "mandate fraud."

Mandate fraud occurs when a fraudster contacts the customer of a subscription business and gets them to change a direct debit or other recurring payment and send that payment to a new destination-an account controlled by the thief. All the customer knows is that the product never arrives the next month or a membership has been canceled. All the retailer knows is that the customer stopped payment. While there is no direct loss from a chargeback perspective, the stream of revenue is interrupted, perhaps permanently. Reported cases of this form of fraud rose 66 percent in the period under examination compared to the year before, according to Action Fraud. cardnotpresent.com

More retailers offer online returns for in-store purchased goods
More retailers are now adopting a new practice in which people that bought things in-store can ship them back without actually getting back into the store.

Those are the results of a new survey for Omnico by retail specialists Martec International. It says that out of 31 surveyed UK retailers, 30 per cent will enable this new feature in the near future. Currently, almost three quarters (74 per cent) don't offer this service.

Extra sales that can be generated when customers come into the store to collect goods they purchased online, is not something many retailers recognize, the report also said. Just six per cent said they'd invest in omni-channel technology for this reason. itproportal.com

Queenstown, MD: Warrant issued in $8,000 theft case at Queenstown Premium Outlets
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Siobhan Springer of Nottingham, Md., in connection with fraudulent purchases made March 4 at Queenstown Premium Outlets.

Purchases were made by the suspect in numerous stores at the Outlets using several fraudulent credit cards, according to Lt. Dale Patrick. "At the St. John's store, an employee requested the woman to provide identification for the purchase of a $1,470 jacket," Patrick said. "Feeling something was amiss, she flagged the transaction and was later able to ID the suspect. When the receipt of the transaction was returned as fraudulent the Sheriff's Office was contacted." Detectives were able to locate additional transactions for merchandise or gift cards at other stores at the Outlets as well as two financial institutions. Victims included Yankee Candle, Kay Jewelers, J. Crew, Polo, Calvin Klein, St. Johns, Coach, Gymboree, NASA Federal Credit Union and USAA Savings.
