The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

William Nichols was named Vice President Loss Prevention for Bowmor AMF.  William was previously the Director of Loss Prevention for Christmas Tree Shops before taking this new position. William was also the Regional Director, Loss Prevention for Bed Bath & Beyond for over 16 years before he went to Christmas Tree Shops. William has worked at other retailers such as Montgomery Ward and Dillard's Department Stores as their Store Managers. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from State University of New York College at Cortland. Congratulations William!

Realizing the American Apparel Chief Isn’t Wearing Any Clothes  Dov Charney is completely naked. He is dancing in what looks like an office or studio, talking on his cellphone while he jams to “This Must Be the Place” by Talking Heads. Two women are there with him, possibly employees. “I’m dancing right now for Daisy,” Mr. Charney, still the chief executive of American Apparel at the time, announces, glancing at one of the women. The other woman records the entire scene on a mobile phone, and asks him to “shake your booty.” Before the video cuts out, Mr. Charney looks at the camera and says: “Stop it. You’re going to get me in trouble.” Well, it is a little late for that now. Mr. Charney, who founded American Apparel, once an upstart darling retailer, was ousted last week by the company’s board. He long lived under the shadow of speculation about inappropriate behavior with female employees and, in some cases, accusations of sexual harassment and assault that he always denied. He championed American Apparel through sexually suggestive advertising that became, in large part, the company’s brand. Mr. Charney’s dismissal raises all sorts of thorny corporate-governance questions for investors and boards about iconic — and notorious — leaders, especially in creative fields. Corporate America is filled with examples of chief executives and founders who stepped down after proof, or even suggestions, of impropriety. Some are fired quickly when investors and boards are alerted. But others, like Mr. Charney, are allowed to linger in their roles for years. “Of course they knew — if they didn’t know, their heads were in the sand,” said Nell Minow, a founder of the governance advisory firm GMI Ratings. “The problem is the board is so invested in their pal, their hero, that it’s very hard to get them to look him in the eye and say, ‘You have to go." There has been a spate of resignations and firings over the last couple of years related to misbehavior or inappropriate comments. Lululemon founder, Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO lost his chairman title, Restoration Hardware's chairman, Best Buy's long term CEO, and others. You don’t need the 20/20 vision of hindsight to have known Mr. Charney was a ticking time bomb. He was repeatedly sued by employees and former employees, and the board was well aware of the cases. The not-safe-for-work video in which he dances in the buff, and other photos, litter the Internet and can be found with a quick Google search. Apparently, the final straw for the board was news that Mr. Charney had knowingly failed to stop the online publication of naked pictures of a former employee who had accused him of sexually harassing her. Observers cheered Mr. Charney’s dismissal almost immediately. (Source nytimes.com)

Target senior exec's send message to board days before former CEO left - If Mr. Steinhafel didn't leave immediately, others would  The following Monday, the CEO was out. Several top managers are now leading the Minneapolis company until a permanent replacement is found. The sequence of events, according to people close to the situation, was the climax of a tense narrative that had been playing out within Target's top ranks—even before a massive credit-card data breach and a money-losing expansion into Canada exposed serious weaknesses in the chain's operations. interviews with more than two dozen former and current Target executives, managers and vendors reveal a deep malaise within a chain that, increasingly, had lost its way. Management became mired in a new thicket of bureaucracy. Creative leeway—once the DNA of the chain affectionately dubbed 'Tar-zhay'—took a back seat to rigid performance metrics. Some executives took their grievances to Target's board; one of Mr. Steinhafel's key lieutenants stopped talking to the CEO entirely, say people close to the matter. The chain "lost a lot of what used to make it unique," says Barclays analyst Matthew McClintock. "There haven't been exciting reasons to shop at Target in recent years." (Source wsj.com)

Why Cybersecurity Should Be a CEO-level issue - McKinsey & Company report
'Why senior leaders are the front line against cyberattacks' - All companies are aware of the growing risk of cyberattacks, yet few are taking the steps necessary to protect critical information. The key? Senior managers need to lead. The importance of cybersecurity is no secret to anyone who’s opened a newspaper or attended a board meeting. So, senior executives may ask, what’s the holdup? The answer is simple: understanding the issue is quite different from effectively addressing it. A number of structural and organizational issues complicate the process of implementing business-driven, risk-management-oriented cybersecurity operating models, and only sustained support from senior management can ensure progress and ultimately mitigate the risk of cyberattacks. Cybersecurity is a CEO-level issue. The risks of cyberattacks span functions and business units, companies and customers. And given the stakes and the challenging decisions posed by becoming cyberresilient, making the decisions necessary can only be achieved with active engagement from the CEO and other members of the senior-management team.

Card fraud impacts 1 in 4 consumers worldwide
A global fraud study of more than 6,100 consumers across 20 countries revealed that one in four consumers is a victim of card fraud in the last five years. The study, conducted by ACI Worldwide and Aite Group, also highlighted that 23 percent of consumers changed financial institutions due to dissatisfaction after experiencing fraud. The U.A.E. has the highest rate of fraud overall at 44 percent, followed by China at 42 percent and India and the United States at 41 percent each. (Source net-security.org)

Schneider Trucking Bests Industry Average in Truck Cargo Thefts - A 'Best-In-Class' cargo theft model  Schneider Trucking has reported its seventh consecutive year of declining cargo thefts and a 20% decline in truckload thefts, well ahead of the industry average. Schneider Trucking attributed its seven-year streak of beating the industry’s average cargo theft incident rate to what it calls proven security methods. Perhaps correlated to our declining number of thefts this year is the implementation of Schneider Trucking’s pre-notification system, spokesmen said. These include proactive communication with shippers, drivers and owner-operators, as well as disciplined standard operating procedures and technology, said the company’s Director of Safety and Enterprise Security, Walter Fountain. It said another component of the company’s security plan is moving high-value loads using driver teams, which creates speed in the supply chain and ensures freight is continually moving and far less susceptible to theft. "Perhaps correlated to our declining number of thefts this year is the implementation of Schneider’s pre-notification system,” Fountain said. “Using the company’s new geo-fencing technology, drivers are alerted when they enter an area with higher reports of theft. The system then notifies drivers of safer alternative places to fuel and rest within the area.” Fountain also stressed the importance of preparing and educating drivers and owner-operators. “Ours is a three-prong approach: We address expectations during on-boarding, we regularly communicate the locations and types of thefts that are occurring, and we incorporate cargo theft preventable measures into our quarterly training sessions.”  (Source truckinginfo.com)

The new cards now have a unique authorization code with each swipe. (Source news8000.com)

Walgreens accelerating optimization efforts with Europe's Alliance Boots partnership - Does that include a corp. move to Europe as some shareholders have requested in previous articles?  The joint synergy program has delivered combined synergies with Alliance Boots of about $367 million in first nine months of fiscal 2014. "We will be accelerating our optimization efforts, including taking additional steps to lower expenses companywide. In addition, our joint venture with Alliance Boots continues to generate significant benefits," CEO Greg Wasson added. Walgreens board of directors is moving forward toward consideration of the second step in the Walgreens-Alliance Boots strategic transaction, including determination of timing and structure, combined management teams, cost reduction initiatives and potential changes in the company’s future capital structure. "We are working through complex issues in planning for step two, and we are taking the appropriate time to come to the right resolution for the combined enterprise.”  (Source nasdaq.com) (Source businesswire.com)

Who Pays for Security Breaches?
With data breaches on the rise and seemingly no end to the damage that a breach can have on an organization, the issue of who pays is heating up. At the same time that NACS and a coalition of retailers have challenged the National Association of Federal Credit Unions’ a credit union's call to shift greater liability for breaches to retailers, an insurer has petitioned a court to find that it's not required to defend Michaels against a bevy of class action lawsuits resulting from a breach and a retail group challenges. Safety National, which issued a commercial general liability insurance policy to Michaels, told a U.S. District Court in Texas last week, that it shouldn't be required to defend Michaels in the breach cases because those lawsuits don't seek payout for bodily injury or property damages that the policy covers, according to an article in SC Magazine.

You probably saw in the news last week that the Department of Veterans Affairs has approved the LPF's LPQ and LPC exams for reimbursement. Great news. Formerly a Captain in the British Airborne Forces and now 'serving' our community with Verisk Analytics, David Shillingford recently started a weekly blog that highlights lessons that businesses can learn from the military. Verisk Analytics was deeply involved in supporting the LPF in developing the LPQ and LPC courses under the watchful eye of Rich DiBenedetto, who has also served in the military. No surprise then that David's blog this week is on the topic of Hiring From The Military. We encourage you to read it and comment at the link below!

By David Shillingford
President, Verisk Crime Analytics

Some great news this week; the Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) has received approval from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for reimbursement for the LPQ (Loss Prevention Qualified) and LPC (LP Certified) exams for all veterans. LPC and LPQ are the bedrock qualifications for retail loss prevention professionals.

This raises an important question: why hire from the military?

There is of course the sense that we should hire veterans because we are indebted to veterans (and there are tax breaks) but let’s put that aside for a moment. Only for a moment though because we are indeed indebted to veterans.

So, why hire a veteran?

Before I list specifics, I’ll make two general points that are important when thinking about hiring from the military:

Hire for Character Over Qualifications
Qualifications can be learned, character is built. We all instinctively know this but it is much harder to judge character than qualifications when reading a résumé or even in an interview. Somebody with military service will have joined because they believe themselves to have the ability to serve, they will have been selected because someone else agreed and, most important, this quality and others will have been tested and honed under pressure, even if the candidate has not seen active combat.

Are Military Personnel Better?
Last week I wrote about the military ‘environment’ and referenced a powerful talk by Simon Sinek in which he argues that it is not necessarily the fact that ‘better’ people join the military but it is the ‘environment’ that causes the selfless behavior that we observe and respect so much in the military. We should also ask ‘do military personnel still display these traits once they leave the military environment’? My answer is ‘yes’. Why? Once lessons like this are learned they are learned forever.

Axis Introduces Modular Mini Camera Series with 1080p Video and the Latest Wide Dynamic Range Technology for Superb Image Detail

AXIS F Series is a highly flexible, modular network camera series ideal for ATMs, banks, stores, hotels and mobile environments like ambulances and police cars

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – June 23, 2014 – Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, today introduces a modular camera series, the AXIS F Network Series, that not only gives customers discreet surveillance solutions with HDTV 1080p video and Axis’ latest Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) performance for high image detail, but also great flexibility in choosing the lens form factor and viewing angle that are ideal for the installation.

“AXIS F Series enables great flexibility and discreetness with superb video performance, even in high-contrast lighting conditions,” said Erik Frännlid, Axis’ director of product management. “The series is based on a divided network camera concept, where the camera is split in two parts: a lens/image sensor unit, and a main unit. This concept was first introduced in the AXIS P12 Series. When we developed the AXIS F Series, we took into account AXIS P12 feedback to provide customers with even better solutions.”

See demo movie.

The “divided network camera” concept allows a small sensor unit to be installed discreetly in tight places and the bigger main unit to be placed elsewhere and away from public view. The series includes an AXIS F41 Main Unit and four compatible AXIS F sensor units that are sold separately with different form factors and lens types for different field of views. AXIS F41 Main Unit houses the processor, network, power, SD card slot and other connections, and can connect to one AXIS F sensor unit. Each sensor unit, which consists of a lens and image sensor, comes with the choice of a 10-ft. or 39-ft. pre-mounted cable for connecting to the main unit.

“The small sensor units give users the flexibility to easily and discreetly install [the cameras], even in very tight spaces,” said Frännlid. “They can be flush-mounted in walls, ceilings, doorways, elevators and behind sheet metal with only the small lens surface visible—in the case of the pinhole unit, just a tiny hole for the lens [can be seen]. Certain AXIS F sensor units can also withstand tough conditions such as vibrations, shocks and temperature fluctuations, which make them ideal for use inside and outside of emergency vehicles. The modular concept also gives customers the flexibility to purchase the sensor unit that is ideal for their application.”
