The Chill is On:
7-Eleven's Operation Chill® Lets Thousands of Local Cops Connect with Kids through Free Slurpee® Drink Coupons

Police departments across the country count on local residents to help them do their jobs and keep neighborhoods safe by observing their surroundings and reporting when things seem amiss. To do that, it is important that officers start building positive relationships with citizens early - even when they're kids. For 24 years, 7-Eleven, Inc. and its popular Operation Chill® program have been doing just that.

This summer, thousands of local law enforcement officers in the U.S. will give free Slurpee drink coupons to kids caught doing good deeds. Each year, 7-Eleven works with police and sheriff's departments to distribute the coupons to deserving children and youth.

During 2019, 7-Eleven will issue 1.475 million Slurpee drink coupons to more than 1,100 law enforcement agencies. Most will be distributed during the summer months and back-to-school season.

"There's a reason Operation Chill continues to be our most popular community service program," said Art Lazo, 7-Eleven vice president of asset protection. "Kids love Slurpee drinks, and police officers love having a reason to approach kids and surprise them with a Slurpee drink coupon as a reward for doing something good. We, at 7-Eleven, know how important it is for police officers to make positive connections with kids early." prnewswire.com


A Major Police Body Cam Company Just Banned Facial Recognition
'Technology is not reliable enough to justify using'

Axon, the company that supplies 47 out of the 69 largest police agencies in the United States with body cameras and software, announced Thursday that it will ban the use of facial recognition systems on its devices.

"Face recognition technology is not currently reliable enough to ethically justify its use," the company's independent ethics board concluded.

Even as facial recognition systems are rolled out by privacy companies - from airlines to smartphone makers - institutions nationwide are balking at government's use of algorithmically-powered surveillance tools.

In May, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors voted to ban use of facial recognition technology by the city's police and other agencies. Other cities, including Berkeley and Oakland, Calif., and Somerville, Mass. are also mulling or close on bans. Earlier this month, California lawmakers announced they're considering a statewide ban on facial recognition in police body cams.

In a 28-page report, Axon's ethics board, which was handpicked by members of the Policing Project at New York University School of Law, argued that the technology "does not perform as well on people of color compared to whites, on women compared to men, or young people compared to older people."

The report also cautioned that facial recognition is especially prone to inaccuracy when used with police body cameras, which frequently operate in low-light conditions and produce shaky footage. nytimes.com

Supermarket Chain Launches New LP Technology
Raley's Rolls Out Date Check System to All Stores

Raley's expects a sizable reduction in product shrinkage with the chainwide deployment of expiration date management software. The West Coast supermarket chain has implemented Date Check Pro from Pinpoint Software Inc. following a successful pilot of the solution in the Sacramento, Calif., area division last spring.

In the 18-store pilot of the system, Raley's said it saw a 15% reduction in known expired shrink. The company noted that it also realized other benefits, including a better classification of shrink as an expired loss instead of an unknown loss, standardized methodologies for weekly management of category/SKU-specific inventory, and greater visibility and accountability in store-level execution.

By identifying expiring items more quickly, Date Check Pro prevents customers from finding these products in the store and positions retailers to mark down near-expiring items for sale, putting 50% to 72% of a potential loss from shrink back on the bottom line, Madison, Wis.-based Pinpoint Software said on its website. The system also saves store associates hours spent performing spot-checks and enables retailers to use data to determine which items should be ordered less, have fewer facings or be discontinued. supermarketnews.com

Amazon Go Showing Signs of National Expansion
New York Location Proves That An Even Bigger Rollout Is Only A Matter Of Time

Initial customer feedback to Amazon Go's entry in New York in May appears to confirm there's a real appetite for the concept, which has also expanded to San Francisco and Chicago. A regular flow of shoppers, numbering about 50 in just 15 minutes on Monday evening, could be seen scanning their Amazon Go app at the location in Brookfield Place, formerly known as the World Financial Center and home to major companies including American Express and a variety of shops and restaurants that attract tourists.

Amazon declined to comment on that issue and again declined to specify how many stores it has its eyes on, except to say that its 14th Amazon Go will soon open in San Francisco, which will be the city's fourth. Still, the steady pace of the store rollout and equally enthusiastic customer reception from San Francisco to New York signal there's potential for nationwide growth, especially in busy commercial areas where office workers have little patience to wait in long lines at fast-casual concepts during lunch hours. forbes.com

Tesco 'working on' AI-powered checkout-free stores to take on Amazon Go
Tesco is looking at developing convenience stores where shoppers can go in, fill their bags and leave again - without having to engage with a checkout at all - in a bid to take on what it clearly sees as a very real threat from Amazon Go.

According to reports in The Telegraph, Working with Israeli tech company Trigo Vision, Tesco is said to be looking at how to develop and roll out an artificial intelligence (AI) powered series of cameras that would be able to track what each shopper has put in their bags as they go round the store - then to charge them for it via an app that would also include their payment details. internetretailing.net

Alert: July 4th Holiday Awareness 2019
Organized Cargo Theft Rings Will 'Highly Active'

Organized cargo theft rings in the United States and Canada will be extremely active in the coming days, as more shipments are left unattended for extended periods of time due to the upcoming holiday. This year July 4th falls on a Thursday, meaning that many facilities may be closed on Friday the 5th, resulting in longer stage times and lower security staffing. In July 4th holidays between 2014 - 2018, the SensiGuard Supply Chain Intelligence Center (SCIC) recorded 2.5 thefts per day with an average loss value of USD $226,505 which is a theft rate 20% higher and an average loss value 34% higher than thefts throughout the year.

Geographically, Texas (+65%), Ontario (+30%), and Tennessee (+39%) all had significantly higher theft rates during the holiday weekend than throughout the year. Facility Theft (+101%) and Pilferage (+10%) were both more frequently perpetrated over the holiday weekend as well. Within product types, Electronics (avg. value $729,813) and Home & Garden ($81,824) both tie for the most stolen product types over this holiday weekend at 19% each. Electronics beat its normal theft rate by 22% and its average value by 93%, while Home & Garden beat its rate by 33% and its value by 9%. intelligence.sensitech.com

FMI wins Supreme Court ruling on SNAP data disclosure; Decision reinforces confidentiality of store-level information
The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) prevailed in a U.S. Supreme Court decision today that involved the confidentiality of store-level sales data for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps. In the case, Food Marketing Institute v. Argus Leader Media, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the U.S. Department of Agriculture wasn't required to release stores' SNAP redemption data under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The court determined that the SNAP data was provided to the government "under an assurance of privacy" and that the release of that information also would cause competitive harm to retailers. supermarketnews.com

UK: Stand up to Shoplifting: Unable to rely on the police for help, many retailers are adopting new security measures to defend their stores from light-fingered offenders
"It's prevalent," echoes Jonathan James, owner of James Convenience Retail, which comprises 66 stores across the belt of England. In its 2019 Crime Report, the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) estimates that the incidents of shop theft have increased over the past year, despite figures from the Office for National Statistics showing that shop theft reported to the police has declined. In fact, many retailers surveyed by the ACS claim that the response they receive from the police actively deters them from reporting incidents. conveniencestore.co.uk

Sears canceled the life insurance coverage of 29,000 retired employees
A judge just gave them a chance to fight for their benefits

The judge overseeing Sears Holdings' bankruptcy is giving 29,000 retired employees a chance to fight for the life insurance benefits they lost when the retailer canceled their coverage earlier this year.

Sears ended the retirees' life insurance benefits in March, shortly after selling most of its remaining assets to Transform Holdco. As of March 15, about 29,000 retirees had coverage with death benefits worth between $5,000 and $14,500 that cost Sears $1.3 million in monthly premiums, Sears said.

Attorneys representing two retirees who pushed for the committee's creation have argued that the company gave up the right to end the life insurance benefits as part of a settlement agreement reached in 2001, after the company made cuts to life insurance coverage. But Sears said the changes agreed to in the settlement were never made official and that it had the right to end the benefits, according to court filings. chicagotribune.com

Getting Back to Basics with ePVM's

LPRC: Customers & Associates Feel Safer
LP Positively Impacting the Customer Experience

With the entire retail industry focused on re-defining and creating a unique customer experience that melds together the online and store environments, digital signage is destined to play a starring role in every aspect of retail. Once again, loss prevention has been leading the effort with Enhanced Public View Monitors (ePVMs) being one of the first interactive video monitors to show up in stores.

Certainly it's been a long and hard battle to gain the support and funding for what now is considered one of the basics in situational crime prevention. But with the Loss Prevention Research Council's (LPRC) ePVM impact study showing that customers "feel safer in stores with e/PVMs" it may be an opportune time to review and consider expanding the program. Especially with CBD products hitting the market.

With that in mind, there's also the opportunity to turn the entire program into a revenue generator with Media PVMs. Just like the EAS towers used for marketing, these media PVMs can be used for marketing as well. It really all depends on how good your selling skills are and how strong your relationships are in the organization.

With customer experience being the #1 driver right now, it all starts with customers feeling safer, and every retailer has to be focused on that goal.




RH-ISAC Announces Speakers for Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit
The Retail & Hospitality Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC) today announced the first speakers for its Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit taking place September 24-25, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, Colorado.

Huawei products riddled with backdoors, zero days and critical vulnerabilities
Huawei's problems keep piling up as a security firm specializing in IoT devices found numerous vulnerabilities across the company's entire product line. Finite State said it scanned more than 1.5 million files embedded within nearly 10,000 firmware images supporting 558 products looking for risks including hard-coded backdoor credentials, unsafe use of cryptographic keys, indicators of insecure software development practices, and the presence of known and 0-day vulnerabilities.

The primary finding being 55 percent of the devices had at least one backdoor primarily in the form of in hard-coded, default user accounts and passwords along with several types of embedded cryptographic keys. However, Finite State also found on average 102 known vulnerabilities associated with each firmware, many rated critical or high, along with hundreds of potential zero day issues. scmagazine.com

Federal Agencies' Cybersecurity Failures Leaving Americans' Personal Information at Risk
U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Tom Carper (D-DE) published a report that documents the failure of eight federal agencies, over the course of two administrations, to address vulnerabilities in their IT infrastructure, leaving Americans' sensitive and personal information unsafe and vulnerable to theft.

The Subcommittee reviewed 10 years of Inspectors General reports on compliance with federal information security standards for the Department of Homeland Security and seven other federal agencies: (1) the Department of State; (2) the Department of Transportation; (3) the Department of Housing and Urban Development; (4) the Department of Agriculture; (5) the Department of Health and Human Services; (6) the Department of Education; and (7) the Social Security Administration. These seven agencies were cited by OMB as rating the lowest with regard to cybersecurity practices. The report details how each of these agencies failed to comply with basic cybersecurity protocols. It also includes a number of recommendations to address those failures.

The report documents that since 2011, the Department of Education has been unable to prevent unauthorized outside devices from easily connecting to the agency's network. In its 2018 audit, the IG found the agency had managed to restrict unauthorized access to 90 seconds, but explained that this was enough time for a malicious actor to "launch an attack or gain intermittent access to internal network resources that could lead to" exposing the agency's data. securitymagazine.com

Breaking the Endless Cycle of 'Perfect' Cybercrimes
Regardless of their methods, hackers are constantly attempting to improve upon what is essentially a perfect crime - a crime that is simple to execute, is performed with near total anonymity, and, most of all, pays off. These have been the hallmarks of successful crimes and criminals for generations, and it's no surprise that the newest generation of criminals would embrace them as well.

If the perfect crime formula remains the same regardless of the actual crime committed, so does the fact that hackers are exploiting persistent weaknesses and blind spots within the enterprise. If organizations moved faster to identify and respond to these exposures, they'd create an attack environment that was more complex, less profitable, and more likely to expose the attacker. Here are two classic flaws - and recommendations on fixing them. darkreading.com

How E-Commerce Sites Manipulate You Into Buying Things You May Not Want
When potential customers visit the online resale store ThredUp, messages on the screen regularly tell them just how much other users of the site are saving.

"Alexandra from Anaheim just saved $222 on her order" says one message next to an image of a bright, multicolored dress. It's a common technique on shopping websites, intended to capitalize on people's desire to fit in with others and to create a "fear of missing out."

But "Alexandra from Anaheim" did not buy the dress. She does not exist. Instead, the website's code pulled combinations from a preprogrammed list of names, locations and items and presented them as actual recent purchases.

The fake messages are an example of "dark patterns," devious online techniques that manipulate users into doing things they might not otherwise choose to. They are the digital version of timeworn tactics used to influence consumer behavior, like impulse purchases placed near cash registers, or bait-and-switch ads for used cars.

The prevalence of dark patterns across the web is unknown, but in a study released this week, researchers from Princeton University have started to quantify the phenomenon, focusing first on retail companies. The study is the first to systematically examine a large number of sites. The researchers developed software that automatically scanned more than 10,000 sites and found that more than 1,200 of them used techniques that the authors identified as dark patterns, including ThredUp's fake notifications.

The report coincides with discussions among lawmakers about regulating technology companies, including through a bill proposed in April by Senators Deb Fischer, Republican of Nebraska, and Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, that is meant to limit the use of dark patterns by making some of the techniques illegal and giving the Federal Trade Commission more authority to police the practice. nytimes.com

Google Play Spotted With More Than 2,000 Malware-Laden Counterfeit Apps: Report
In the latest damning report about the state of Google Play, researchers claim to have found there are over 2,000 malware-laden apps present on Google Play, all of which are copycats of some of the most popular apps out there.

The investigation was done by the researchers using neural networks, and found that there were many apps with visually similar icons to 10,000 of the most popular apps on Google Play, and also partially plagiarised their text descriptions.

These counterfeit apps were checked if they contain malware using the private API of online malware analysis tool, VirusTotal. Over 7,000 of these apps were found to contain malware in at least one parameter. ndtv.com

NYC, NY: Credit Card Fraud Ring used composite identities to steal $3 million
from banks

The credit cards were real, but the people who got the bills were fake. Nearly a dozen fraudsters from Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx used "synthetic" identities to make about $3 million in credit card charges, and never paid the banks holding their debts. The 11 suspects charged in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday mixed and matched real names, social security numbers and dates of birth to create fake identities, then applied for credit cards and started charging on them, federal prosecutors claim.

They often used shell companies to write checks into bogus accounts in order to up the credit limits on the ill-gotten cards and to make fraudulent repayments on line-of-credit accounts, prosecutors said. Several of the suspects used what's referred to as a "credit card bust-out scheme," working with merchants who let them make fraudulent charges in exchange for a 10 % to 25 % cut of the money. They used the money to pay EZ-Pass bills, mortgages, car loans, airline tickets and other items, prosecutors alleged. nydailynews.com

Sarasota, FL: Sarasota County Sheriff's Office bust 14 in Sarasota retail theft sting
Thirteen adults and one juvenile were arrested by Sarasota County sheriff's deputies following the latest retail theft operation conducted by investigators. More than 200 arrests have been made since 2013 in various sting operations targeting retail theft. During the latest operation, deputies focused on retail corridors stretching from Sarasota to Venice, according to a press release issued Tuesday. "It is concerning to me that despite the amount of proactive law enforcement we conduct, criminals still think they can prey on local retailers," Sheriff Tom Knight said in a prepared statement. "Our deputies commonly saturate heavily populated commercial areas thanks to our established partnerships with the retail community, but it doesn't seem to matter. bradenton.com

Atlanta, GA: 3 Sought for Theft of $12,000 in merchandise from Kroger Stores
Three men made off with nearly $5,000 worth of merchandise during a June 8 trip to the Kroger in the Edgewood retail district. They allegedly pulled off an even bigger heist worth $7,000 two days before at another Kroger on Glenwood Avenue. The stolen merchandise included soap, deodorant, meat, beer and household items, police posted to Facebook.

It took the men about an hour from the time they entered the store at 10:35 p.m. to the time they left. In the Glenwood Avenue theft, two men were seen on store surveillance cameras leaving an emergency door on the side of the building with shopping carts loaded down. The employee said the same men may be involved in other shoplifting incidents at Kroger locations in the Wesley Chapel area of DeKalb County. wsbradio.com

Novato, CA: Bad Timing for 2 Sephora Shoplifters
The case involved the Sephora store in the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center. A police detective went there Wednesday morning for followup investigation on a theft that happened there on June 12. While the detective was in the back office, a pair of thieves entered the store and started loading cosmetics into bags, the police department said. Employees recognized them as the thieves from previous incidents at Sephora. One employee confronted the thieves while another alerted the police investigator. The shoplifters fled with the merchandise. Central Marin Police stopped the car after spotting it on southbound Highway 101. Police found merchandise from Sephora in the car. Two teenage women were arrested on suspicion of burglary, theft and conspiracy. "Gates, the female juvenile, and other suspects yet-to-be identified are believed to be responsible for several other burglaries at cosmetic stores in Novato and the Bay Area," the police department said. marinij.com

New South Wales, Australia: Police uncover $25,000 of stolen beauty products, baby formula and drugs
Two people have been arrested after police seized $25,000 worth of stolen beauty products and drugs from a home and storage unit in southwest Sydney. Police allege the man, 33, and the woman, 74, were involved in the theft and resale of stolen goods, which included beauty and personal hygiene products, multi vitamins and baby formula.

Murray, UT: Fashion Place Mall shooting suspects charged in connection to other gang-related shooting
Two men charged in connection with a shooting at the Fashion Place mall have now been charged with another gang-related shooting that occurred just one week earlier. The break in the case was due to ballistics testing from the shooting at the mall. Jorge Crecencio-Gonzalez, 20, and Jesus Joshua "Cyko" Payan-Mendoza, 19, were each charged Wednesday with attempted murder and six counts of discharge of a firearm. Both men are documented gang members, according to police.

On Jan. 13, a man and woman were shot just outside an entrance of Fashion Place mall, 6191 S. State.

The drive home can be the longest drive of the day when looking into the rear-view mirror and seeing nothing but the day's events. It is a great time for reflection and evaluation of all that transpired over the last 12 hours, often times allowing you to realize that the briefest interaction with someone may have been the most important event of the day. Those one line snip-its often times are where the true feelings and intentions are expressed. Piecing them together can mean the difference between success and failure of a project, a program, and even an executive. It is only in reflection that we see the truth and give ourselves the ability to react to it the right way the next day. Take the time and look in the rear-view mirror. You may see something you had not seen.

Just a Thought,
