Are Your Stores & Associates Ready for Thousands of Protesters?
'Conventions in Two Cities Are Bracing for Large Protests'

Cleveland and Philadelphia are preparing for thousands of protesters during the Republican and Democratic gatherings next month.

Republicans arriving in Cleveland next month to nominate Donald J. Trump will be greeted by as many as 6,000 protesters on the first day, a noisy coalition of dozens of groups, including Black Lives Matter and the Workers World Party. The demonstrators intend to ignore restrictions keeping them far from the delegates, raising fears the violence that accompanied some of Mr. Trump's rallies will be magnified on a mass scale.

Two marches along routes the city has not authorized are planned for the convention's opening day, July 18. Organizers say they want to avoid violence. But they are also gearing up for confrontation with the police, including training in civil disobedience.

"If there are people willing to put themselves on the line to be arrested, so be it," said Deb Kline, a leader of Cleveland Jobs With Justice, one of the groups that will march.

A week later, as Democrats pour into Philadelphia, so will an army of Bernie Sanders supporters planning Occupy Wall Street-style protests against what they call the "fraudulent" nomination of Hillary Clinton. One group, Occupy DNC Convention, is circulating information about protecting oneself from tear gas by wearing a vinegar-soaked bandanna and swim goggles.

Bill Taylor, an organizer of the rallies, said he expected up to 250,000 people still angry that Mr. Sanders lost the Democratic nomination by what they believe is a rigged system.

The founder of a Facebook group called Occupy DNC Convention, which has more than 25,000 members, has applied for a permit for up to 15,000 people to march on July 25 which is pending with the city.

The divisive nominating contests have produced countercurrents of deep resentment in both parties. And next month, that bitterness could spill into the streets in large protests just when Republicans and Democrats - and the host cities - are trying to present images of unity to the country.

Protest organizers in Cleveland say that by imposing strict rules to contain demonstrators, the city is only increasing the likelihood that unsanctioned protests will erupt, leading to violent clashes with the police or between Trump supporters and opponents.

Some protest leaders in Cleveland said they would ignore the restrictions and march as close as possible to the arena, which will be wrapped in a security perimeter set by the Secret Service.

Even the organizer of a pro-Trump rally said the city's rules increased the chance of violence by confining all demonstrators to the same route.

A spokesman for Mayor Frank G. Jackson of Cleveland defended the prescribed march route and said the police have trained for 18 months to deal with protesters.

Editor's Note:  Rumors circulating around Cleveland is that a large number of police departments around Ohio, which were going to supply Cleveland with extra officers, have pulled out and will not be allowing their police officers to assist. So the question is will there be enough police presence? A question that has not been answered locally. nytimes.com

Apprehension of Shoplifters & Dishonest Employees
Increased in 9 of the Past 10 Years

Jack L. Hayes International's 28th Annual Retail Theft Survey!

Over 1.2 million shoplifters and dishonest employees were apprehended in 2015 by just 25 large retailers who recovered over $200 million from these thieves, according to the 28th Annual Retail Theft Survey conducted by Jack L. Hayes International, the leading loss prevention and inventory shrinkage control consulting firm.

"Retail theft, by both shoplifters and employees, continues to plague the retail industry. Our latest Annual Retail Theft Survey (28th) reflects an increase in both shoplifter and dishonest employee apprehensions, up 2.0% and 1.0% respectively, in 2015. Overall recoveries from those apprehensions totaled over $200 million and was up 1.2%", said Mark R. Doyle, President of Jack L. Hayes International. "It should be noted that the apprehension of shoplifters and dishonest employees has increased in 9 of the last 10 years!" Mr. Doyle added, "Retail theft causes consumers to pay higher prices for goods, and is having a detrimental effect on retailers' bottom-line profits."

Participants: 25 large retail companies with 21,288 stores and over $700 billion in retail sales (2015). businesswire.com

"Is Disney's Image Tarnished?" - a headline on an investment website
More aggressive safety procedures have become a fixture of modern life
Metal detectors are now routine at baseball stadiums, concert arenas and even some movie theaters. In response to increased security concerns, Disney, Universal and SeaWorld began using metal detectors in December, the first time the companies deployed such measures on a large scale.

But these measures, while appreciated by most tourists who might feel less safe without them, work against Disney's singular efforts to create what it advertises as "the Happiest Place on Earth." It's awfully hard to forget the real world when you're being wanded.  nytimes.com

School is out, and gang recruitment is in full force in Memphis
You have youth that have absolutely nothing to do and that's breeding ground for gangs and gang activity," SCSO Lt. Commander Mike Collins told FOX13. The recruitment process is about loyalty. And to prove your loyalty, you're often asked to commit crimes.

"Misdemeanor crimes such as shoplifting. Minor crimes such as assault," Lt. Commander Collins said. FOX13 was told the local gang problem is only getting worse. fox13memphis.com

7-Eleven Franchisee Labor Exploiter Denied Resentencing By 2nd Circ.
The Second Circuit on Tuesday affirmed a lower court's sentencing of a New York man to 87 months in prison for exploiting immigrants who worked at his 7-Eleven stores, but ordered that $2.6 million in restitution be corrected after several wrong employee names were listed in a court document.

Baig was sentenced in April 2015 to more than seven years in prison after he pled guilty to committing wire fraud and concealing and harboring immigrants he employed at 7-Eleven franchises located throughout Long Island and Virginia. Officials say he and co-conspirators stole the identities of U.S. citizens who were children or dead to hire the workers and then housed them in properties they owned, according to court documents. law360.com

National Retail Federation Tells 2nd Circ. Workers Must Arbitrate, Not Sue
Workers don't have a substantive right to bring a class action suit and should be forced to abide by arbitration agreements they entered, the National Retail Federation said in an amicus brief filed with the Second Circuit Friday.

The federation argues that workers appealing a New York federal court decision dismissing a 2014 class action alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and sending the dispute to arbitration can also waive the right to bring a class action, if such a right did exist. law360.com

LinkedIn data breach blamed for multiple - 30+ - secondary compromises 
They may be IN your company right now!

The LinkedIn compromise has been linked to a number of confirmed incidents where data exfiltration has taken place. It's possible these incidents are only the tip of the iceberg though, as many of the organizations compromised are service providers with access to customer networks.

Some confirming upwards of thirty instances where an organization has been compromised and sensitive information exfiltrated by the attackers. The organizations that have been targeted operate in the manufacturing industry, retail industry, and a number of other verticals.  csoonline.com

American Express Plans to Limit Merchant Costs During Chip-Card Shift
Under its new policy, retailers wouldn't be held responsible for bad charges of less than $25. American Express said it would limit the costs of fraudulent credit-card transactions for U.S. retailers as they upgrade their systems to begin accepting chip cards.

The move comes less than a week after Visa and MasterCard said they would speed up the certification process of chip-reading check-out terminals and limit costs to merchants during the transition away from old cards with magnetic stripes. It also follows widespread complaints from merchants across the country.

Under its new policy, American Express said retailers wouldn't be held responsible by the end of August for bad charges on card transactions of less than $25. By year's end, the company plans to hold merchants liable for a total of 10 bad charges per card account, with costs for the remaining bad charges moving to the card issuer."

American Express, which said 40% of its costs related to credit-card fraud in the U.S. involve purchases of less than $25, said the policy will stay in effect until April 2018. wsj.com

Call To Action
Legislators Consider Cybersecurity Initiative For Retail Sector

Legislators are considering a directive for the Department of Commerce to team up with experts to create a cybersecurity initiative specific to the retail sector, according to a recent bill report, while also encouraging the department to address internet of things-related security concerns.

The House Committee on Appropriations recently passed a bill for spending by the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Industries suggesting that the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology pursue means of strengthening the cybersecurity of the retail sector.

"The committee is aware that the nation's retail sector is vulnerable to and targeted by cyberattacks. The committee encourages NIST to build on its existing industry-sector focused work to create a retail-specific cybersecurity initiative and partner, as appropriate, with academic entities and national leaders in retail cybersecurity and retail supply chain management and logistics," the bill report said. law360.com

Goodbye, Password. Banks Opt to Scan Fingers and Faces Instead
The banking password may be about to expire - forever

Some of the nation's largest banks, acknowledging that traditional passwords are either too cumbersome or no longer secure, are increasingly using fingerprints, facial scans and other types of biometrics to safeguard accounts.

Millions of customers at Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo routinely use fingerprints to log into their bank accounts through their mobile phones. This feature, which some of the largest banks have introduced in the last few months, is enabling a huge share of American banking customers to verify their identities with biometrics. And millions more are expected to opt in as more phones incorporate fingerprint scans. nytimes.com

Employees 'Leaving the Cyber Doors Wide Open for Attack'
Closing the Barn Doors - Employee Cyber Awareness Training

The research, which forms part of NJR's cyber security report: how real is the threat and how can you reduce your risk, shows that 23 per cent of employees use the same password for different work applications and 17 per cent write down their passwords, 16 per cent work while connected to public Wi-Fi networks and 15 per cent access social media sites on their work PCs. Such bad habits and a lack of awareness about security mean that employees are inadvertently leaving companies' cyber doors wide open to attack. retailrisk.com

MasterCard speeds chip terminal deployment for merchants
MasterCard today unveiled a new EMV chip terminal testing and certification program aimed at speeding chip adoption by U.S. merchants.

Acquirers will have more responsibility and flexibility for terminal testing as a part of their own internal processes and schedules. Acquirers can now follow recommendations and use MasterCard terminal testing procedures or they can choose alternative testing processes and tools that support the integrity of their existing procedures. MasterCard has also cut the number of needed tests by 58 percent, minimizing mandatory tests and allowing acquirers to use their discretion and expertise in deciding when terminals are ready for deployment. finextra.com

The Case of the Criminal Magpie - Why Jewelry is Seeing an Online Fraud Spike
The growth in online fraud can be seen across industries, segments and products, but one area with a notable spike is luxury goods like jewelry. According to the Global Fraud Attack Index, between Q1 and Q4 of 2015 the fraud attack rate for luxury goods doubled. In terms of potential cost, $8.62 out of every $100 are now at risk for luxury goods. Only digital goods are more at risk. So what makes them so attractive to online criminals, and how can retailers protect against it without compromising customer experience - and sales?

Fraudsters love jewelry because it's valuable and easy to resell - the ideal combination for an online criminal who's looking to maximize their ROI. They aim to spend the minimal amount of effort for the maximum amount of profit. That attitude makes jewelry an appealing target.

Beyond the sheer rise in attacks, the other trend that is causing concern for online jewelry merchants is the increased sophistication of the attacks themselves and the tools that are available to those perpetrating them.

One problem is automation - the use of botnets shot up in 2015 and continues to be popular in 2016 as well, allowing fraudsters to try multiple avenues of attack at once. This supports another growing trend, ATO (account takeover) where criminals gain access to an account or accounts and use the account and its associated details to commit fraud.

Online jewelry merchants therefore face more than their fair share of the smartest and sneakiest fraudsters. There are two main types of sophistication relevant here: complex identity fraud, and technical ability. paymentsjournal.com
