Retail Security: Current
Trends and Future Threats in the UK
Not Much Different Than U.S. Across the Pond
Major changes in retail are having a profound effect on the role of loss
prevention, an audience at the IFSEC exhibition in London has been told.
One of the major problems was the rapid pace of change online which is
making it very difficult for retailers to keep up with.
retail business development manager at
Axis Communications claimed the rise in organised retail crime was one
of the biggest challenges. "Without a strong definition of this problem
there is not a true understanding of the component parts, making it
difficult to map solutions.
"The innovative channels that are being
created to serve customers is moving at a faster pace than the loss
prevention teams can cope with, so we need to map that and support operation
teams to reduce loss and shrinkage."
Robert Verhulst from Bosch said
organised retail crime is not just an external threat, it also involves
people on the inside where criminals try to deal with 'associates' sent to
work in retail in order to steal.
"A lot of retailers are struggling
with this," he said. "Also retailers need to understand where shrinkage is
coming from so that they can take the right measures. I am absolutely
convinced that technology plays a big role in this." ifsecglobal.com
New Report: NYPD's
"Broken Windows" Policing Had No Impact in Reducing Violent Crime
The Department of Investigation quietly released a report nearly a year in
the making Wednesday morning implicitly undercutting that theory, which is
dearly held Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and supported by de Blasio.
He reported finding no evidence that the enforcement of quality-of-life
crimes "has any impact in reducing violent crime," despite a claim made by
NYPD in a
While the mayor remained silent, the Police
Department released a statement attacking the report's "basic assumptions
and so-called methodology" as "deeply flawed." A police spokesman said Eure
should have studied the years before 1990, when violent crime in the city
"What is completely ironic is that the
inspector general's own release says, 'This report did not make findings
regarding quality-of-life policing or the much broader concept of 'broken
windows,'" Lt. John Grimpel said in the statement. "One wouldn't know that,
reading today's news coverage."
Department of Investigation officials
returned fire, saying they "were not writing a history of quality-of-life
policing," and rejected the suggestion that they should have used "data from
25 years ago."
Sniping between two of the mayor's agencies raised
the question of why such a report was compiled and released. One possibility
is that in the future, the mayor could use the findings to justify the
reduction in misdemeanor arrests likely to result from the
Criminal Justice Reform Act he signed last month.
Inside the World of Large-Scale Food Heists
From $200,000 worth of cheese, $158,000 worth of shrimp, to $40,000
worth of chicken wings large scale food theft is on the rise and happening
across the nation.
A large draw to boosting food is that
the stakes, compared to other stolen goods, are extremely low. Unlike money
or electronics that have serial codes, it's difficult to trace food
that has been stolen. And to make matters worse, the penalties, even if a
perp is caught with thousands of dollars worth of stolen goods, can be
almost non-existent. "It's a slap on the wrist." "Even if [thieves] get
caught - and very few have gotten caught - unless the Feds get involved and
rope up all the people facilitating the transport and such of the large
quantities, then it's grand theft. Which translates to "no time in jail in
California, or at least very little."
Thousands of grocery
stores and bodegas or convenient stores are more than happy to take the
questionable seller's sub-priced gouda off their hands. DNAinfo
reported earlier this year that teens in Manhattan had been scooping up
hundreds of dollars of Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry's pints from CVS and
Duane Reade pharmacies, with the
intent of reselling them to bodegas. And in 2014, 10 convenient store
owners and managers in Kentucky were found guilty for not only buying
products nabbed from grocery stores and pharmacies, but even
providing thieves with shoplifting lists.
It impacts the farm
laborers, the farming community, community stores, families," he said. "I
think it's an economic act of terrorism. It impacts us
fiscally at so many levels."
PacSun Workers Allowed
To Assert Class Claims In Ch. 11 for Unpaid Wages & Unpaid Security Checks

Claim Over Job Verification Process
will provide additional training to its hiring staff as part of its
settlement of allegations by the
U.S. Justice Department that it discriminated against non-U.S. citizens
who were authorized to work at a Glendale, California, retail location.
The deal will settle allegations that the retail giant violated the
Immigration and Nationality Act by forcing lawful permanent residents to
provide copies of their unexpired green cards so they could begin to work,
according to the agreement, which was finalized on Wednesday.
The INA allows permanent residents to choose from a list of
acceptable documents they can present to employers for verification of their
legal status, and does not obligate the use of a green card as part of the
process, the agreement reads.
Macy's West Stores Inc. will
pay a $8,700 civil penalty to the government as part of the agreement.
Before agreeing to the deal, the retailer in November voluntarily reimbursed
the unnamed charging party $524 for the hours the person would have
otherwise worked and began to train employees in the proper hiring
Protestors Picket Columbus, Ohio Wendy's Over Fair Pay for Florida's Tomato
A little more than 50 people marched
on a Wendy's store near Ohio State's campus Wednesday, the latest protest in
a years-long effort by the Coalition of Immolakee Workers.
coalition, which represents workers in Florida's vast tomato industry, wants
Wendy's to sign on to its Fair Food Program, an agreement to push tomato
suppliers to pay one penny more per pound to ensure things like higher
wages, better healthcare and better working conditions.
major competitors -McDonald's and Burger King - have all signed on, and so
have Subway, Taco Bell and Wal-Mart. That became a theme at the protest,
which featured a few dozen Unitarian Universalists in town for a church
convention. The Unitarians are part of a organization called the Alliance
for Fair Food, which helps the coalition spread its message.
For retailers, closing
stores isn't as easy as it once was
are demanding it. Industry analysts are pushing for it. Even retailers and
property owners, to a certain degree, agree more needs to be done. So why
are companies moving so slowly to close down a chunk of their stores?
New and existing retailers continue to open stores in the U.S.,
with several of the companies that are closing stores simultaneously opening
new concepts, analysts argue many need to move faster to shrink their
square footage. Retailers' dismal comparable-sales results in the first
quarter only added fuel to the fire.
For retailers not teetering on
bankruptcy, however, the decision to put a location on the chopping block is
becoming more complicated, as many of their money-sucking properties have
already been surrendered. What's more, with many of these stores out of
their portfolio, there's no longer as dire a need to shutter a location
before the lease expires.

The Art of Listening
Luciano, President, Civil Demand Associates
There are a plethora of books, publications and commentary about what skills and
attributes are necessary to be an impactful leader in business, as well as in
life. However, where those may focus on what to say, how to act, or ways to
create change, a primary feature of a great leader is the willingness and
ability to listen. Not just biding time during a conversation, thinking about
what you want to say and pretending to listen until you get a chance to speak,
but focusing on what is actually being said and what it might mean to that
When I first started out at
Demand Associates I brought with me this unique skill set which I continue
to use today. Knowing one's product/ service is only a portion of this art.
Knowing the needs of your client is probably more important and in order to
determine needs one needs to ask pertinent questions and listen attentively.
Once the answer is heard a solution can be either developed or provided.
As a solution provider it is our job to try and develop products and services
based on the vision provided by our clients. Not by reaction but by a
combination of experience, vision and an overall ability to see the need for an
entire industry. From there development should be tested by early adaptors who
have the same vision.
Delivery promises should not be over stated. Never say you can deliver when you
can't. It would be better to build it first because you will usually only get
one shot to come up with a game changer. It is also important not to oversell.
Once a decision maker has been persuaded have the sense to stop selling at that
point. This could be categorized as knowing when to be silent and move on. All
of this is a part of the art of listening.
Civil Demand Associates was founded in 1987 on some of these very principles.
Retailers were struggling to send demand letters and tracking payments manually.
Fifteen states had civil recovery laws most of which were in the west. CDA was
established as a way to outsource this valuable revenue stream as well as a way
to help provide a financial deterrent. CDA was the first company to develop
software and business logic designed to handle thousands of files, payments and
In the years to follow clients brought other types of theft cases for
collection. Dishonest employee restitution collections, court ordered
restitution and vendor fraud to mention a few. All these have added to CDA's
offering so that a well-rounded service with no initial investment is now
available on a contingency basis.
In 2010 CDA brought forth a new concept to combat major organized retail crime
by using federal civil RICO statutes to seize assets of those at the top of
these illegal enterprises.
As you can see it all comes down to listening to the needs of the industry and
developing means to help loss prevention practitioners bring back lost profits
to the bottom line.

Breaking Down The Big
Business Of Fraud
In this month's installment
of the Anatomy of a Fraud Attack series with Kount, we take a look at an
increasingly favorite type of fraud among cybercriminals: carding or card
By looking at things from the view of a fraudster, we'll go
into how these types of attacks are typically planned and executed ...
Setting Up Shop
"I think you have to think of
[fraudsters] just like other business people because it's grown into that -
this is no longer the little hacker that plays around on his computer. It's
usually pretty organized," Bush explained.
Carding may not be a new
technique, but with the wealth of data floating around from larger data
breaches and huge databases of compromised payment card data, it's becoming
a new favorite. The breaches that take place and financial records that
become available as a result, the better chance we fraudsters have at
finding, purchasing and using (or just reselling) those cards. Like any
legitimate business out there, when putting a fraud operation in place we
have to make sure the right partners, assets and even tools are available.
Never has it been so easy to connect and network with other cybercriminals,
while also having access to the types of resources guaranteed to improve our
Tools Of The Trade
no denying that the tools and technologies made available today make it
easier than ever to execute fraud strategies. These include tools to
disguise an IP address, disguise an entire device, scan websites and
databases to pull out data resembling passwords and IDs, as well as bots and
Trojans that grab information and send it to a central repository. We are
also flush with the right connections to keep our illicit businesses running
- from retailers to wholesalers, or even our own Amazon, eBay or eCommerce
The Data Jackpot
Payment card data
is always welcome to a fraudster, but with an estimated 600 million to 700
million accounts being compromised last year alone it's become somewhat of a
commodity in the hacker market.
Having a consumer's digital identity
opens the door to applying for a loan or other lines of credit, and doing
more things with the data that will actually help me. Personal data also has
an advantage because unlike with compromised card data, consumers have
started to slow down the speed in which they actually act on finding out the
data has been stolen.

detergent and two cartons of Marlboro cigarettes, thinking they were stolen
from a delivery truck, and put them on his store shelves. Investigators then
obtained a search warrant for Patel's home and on May 22 seized drug packing
materials and 14 grams of marijuana.

Viernheim cinema complex attacker shot dead, up to 50 injured by police tear gas
A masked man who
reportedly fired shots in a cinema complex in western Germany has been shot
dead by police, the state's interior minister has said. Peter Beuth told the
state of Hessen's parliament that police stormed the Kinopolis complex in
Viernheim, near Frankfurt, after shots were reported. "The police thought
that the gunman was holding hostages and because of that he was shot dead,"
At least 25 people were hurt in the melee. However, the
mass circulation newspaper
Bild said they were injured by tear gas used by police. The
Darmstadt Echo put the number of injured from 20 to 50 people.
The incident erupted in the Kinopolis movie theater in the town of
Viernheim, about 45 miles south of Frankfurt, according to the Associated
Press. The Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper said it was unclear if there was
a political or ideological motive, or if it was an attempted robbery.
DPA quoted unidentified security sources as saying the gunman was acting
alone and was not a terrorist.
Mr Beuth also said: "The police had an
emergency call at 2:45pm [12:45 GMT]. The caller said there was a masked
man... armed with a long gun. It is unclear whether it was a real gun.
"The caller heard four shots and said that the masked man appeared a
little mentally unstable. Police special forces were called."

Robberies & Thefts
Tigard, OR: $100,000
Smash and Grab at Washington Square Mall
Officials say a suspect used a sledgehammer to break a glass display case at
a Washington Square Mall jewelry store just before 2 p.m. Wednesday
afternoon. A massive police presence was reported at the mall shortly after
because the initial report said shots were fired, which ended up being
false. Police say the suspect stole three gold Rolex watches worth more than
$100,000 from Ben Bridge Jewelers after smashing a display case. He fled the
scene, but was found shortly after, hiding near in a residential area.

for sometimes as much as five times the purchase price.
Counterfeiting overall is a nearly $500 billion a year business. This past
year alone, Procter & Gamble has helped to identify close to 50 factories
that are sending out counterfeit goods. The company which makes Tide, Downy
and Gain detergents wants counterfeit products off the streets, and it has
urged the U.S. Senate to pass relevant legislation.

Your self-evaluation is probably the most important document you'll write
all year and it requires a degree of self-reflection and openness that, if
done correctly, thoroughly, realistically and written well, will in
actuality garner more respect than virtually anything else you can do.
However, it's also a double-edged sword that mandates your adherence and
constant effort to reach your written objectives and goals. The problem is
that while most are rather open about their areas of improvement, very few
actually quantify what they are going to do to improve and set specific
goals that are realistically obtainable. The first step may be in just
approaching and completing the reviews of your direct reports first and
doing them with the same intensity and focus as you do yours. This step gets
you in the game so to speak and allows you to tie yours into your teams and
also may just give you some feedback you need to hear.
