2015 Retail Industry Background Screening
Benchmarking Report Released

The third annual retail benchmarking report from GIS was designed to help retailers determine how their background screening and hiring programs compare to their competitors' by canvassing a broad selection of retailers and delving into their thought processes and procedures. This year's report identifies biggest hiring challenges (finding and hiring qualified employees), why retailers run checks (for a safer work environment) and when background checks are performed (generally upon conditional offer, not before). The report also provides information on specifics of certain checks: years of addresses used for criminal history searches, whether aliases are searched, types of drug tests, etc.

Below are some highlights from the report.  To request your copy of the full report, click here.

Retail Fraud conferences have also been established in other major retail centres including Leicester, Dublin, Oslo, Cape Town and Dubai.

Armani Accused Of Retaliating Against Bias Whistleblower
Giorgio Armani Corp. was hit with a discrimination suit Friday in New York federal court by a former sales associate who alleges a manager violated the New York Human Rights Act by firing her after she alleged the store discriminated against African-American and Hispanic customers. Norma Moreno said the company failed to address her complaints that general manager Barbara Camozzi had discriminated against minority employees and customers. She also said her termination from Armani in December was attributed to poor performance while it in fact resulted from discrimination because she's Hispanic.

Moreno and two African-American employees at the Madison Avenue store in New York City complained in October that Camozzi refused to serve African-American and Hispanic customers and would guard the cash register while these customers were present, according to the complaint. law360.com

Understanding Upcoming FDA Food Safety Rules
In 2011, President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) into law, giving the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the tools to strengthen the food safety system. While the rules are still being finalized, there is a general outline of what the FDA will be doing and requiring. The biggest change is in focus: from reacting to food safety problems to preventing food safety problems. Under FSMA, the new mandates and authorities of the FDA include: ● Requiring preventive controls across the food supply; Increased inspections and records access; Imported food safety requirements; Mandatory recall authority for all food products; and Integration and enhanced partnerships. csnews.com

Wal-Mart sued over denying health insurance to gay worker's wife
A Wal-Mart Stores Inc employee sued the retailer on Tuesday, saying its prior policy of denying health insurance benefits to the spouses of gay employees violated gender discrimination laws. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Boston, seeks nationwide class-action status. Wal-Mart, the largest private U.S. employer, began offering health insurance benefits to same-sex spouses last year, after the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act that denied federal benefits to married gay couples. Jackie Cote, an office manager who has worked at Walmart stores in Maine and Massachusetts since 1999, said in the lawsuit that her wife, Diana Smithson, developed cancer in 2012 and that the denial of insurance led to $150,000 in medical debt, hampering her recovery. Cote and Smithson were married in Massachusetts in 2004, the same year a court ruling made the state the first in the country to allow gay nuptials. When Cote brought her claims to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Wal-Mart said federal anti-discrimination laws did not apply to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, so it did not have to offer benefits to their spouses. Cote's lawsuit called the policy a form of gender discrimination because the wife of a male employee would receive health insurance, and even after the 2014 change, Wal-Mart workers still live with the uncertainty of losing spousal coverage. reuters.com

Whataburger restaurant chain takes stand against Texas' new open carry law
An iconic Texas restaurant chain will not allow the open carrying of guns on its properties, and industry experts say other restaurants will likely take the same stand against a new state law legalizing the practice in many public places. Whataburger - with some 780 locations in 10 states - has drawn a mix of praise and rebuke since making the announcement this month, including a prediction of boycotts from one of the state's leading advocates for gun rights. In an open letter on the company's website, Whataburger president and CEO Preston Atkinson said many employees and customers are "uncomfortable being around someone with a visible firearm." He described himself as an avid hunter with a concealed-carry license and noted that patrons licensed to carry concealed handguns will still be able to do so in Whataburger. yahoo.com

Man says he was stuck inside FedEx store for hours
A San Antonio man says he was trapped inside a FedEx store for more than two hours this weekend because employees forgot he was still inside when they locked up. So what did he do - he made hysterical videos of course. Chris Galvan ran into the north-side FedEx store right before 9 p.m. on Saturday, a few minutes before it was going to close, needing to print off a few flyers and papers. When Chris went to the counter to say he was ready to print no one was there. The doors were locked and Chris was stuck inside with only a phone to keep him busy. "I knew I had to pass the time and I was delirious so I started taking videos, jumping jacks and sleeping and walking around doing funny stuff," said Chris. Chris called another 24 hour FedEx store for help. Employees there got in touch with the store manager who let Chris out around 11:30 at night, more than two hours after he first got trapped. kens5.com

Real Shoplifters (with cartoon faces) Star in UK Department Store's Latest Ad  Harvey Nichols just did what we think must be a first for a retailer -- it put footage of real life shoplifters into an ad campaign. English ad agency Adam & Eve/DDB took the real life CCTV films of people stealing from the British department store and made them entertaining. It achieved this by disguising the criminals' faces with animated heads that give them the expressions of classic cartoon thieves. The ad, which promotes the retailer's new Rewards App, ends with the line "Love Freebies? Get them legally." creativityonline.com

Up To 60,000 Canadians Affected By Possible Walmart Credit Card Data Breach - Third Party Provider Hacked - Are You Using PNI Digital Media?  Walmart Canada has taken down the website for its online photo processing service following a possible data breach that may have compromised customers' credit card numbers. Visitors to WalmartCanadaPhotoCentre.ca are being greeted with a notice that the site has been taken offline. Robertson said Walmart has no reason to believe that in-store customers or online customers of the main Walmart.ca site were affected. The photocentre website is operated by Vancouver-based PNI Digital Media, which specializes in websites for retailers. Staff at PNI were unable to confirm the breach on Monday, saying the company would address the issue at a later time. huffingtonpost.ca

The Why (Not Just The Where) Of Beacons - Ownership - Control - Personalized - Respectful  They're all trying to make sure that customers can get the most of the experience when they're there. The issue of digital ownership - the question of who owns the mobile engagement opportunity that beacons provide. "We believe that if you buy a beacon or you integrate firmware into your component to make it a beacon, you should own that engagement with your customers when they're at your place. You should decide which applications have access to the beacon signal.

There are many un-secured beacons out there today. That means that once you buy and install one of those beacons, you physically own it, but you don't digitally own it. Basically, you've bought infrastructure that others can access without authorization." "it was important for whoever's buying the infrastructure to have control of what the experience should be for the customers and users at that location. That control allows them to decide what partners and applications get access to participate in that customer experience." The aforementioned digital ownership allows retailers to protect consumers, making sure that customers are given what they need and that others are not taking advantage of their locations.

What Hunter views as one of the most interesting things happening in retail right now is that the store conforms to the consumer when he or she is inside of it: a phenomenon that can be beneficial to both parties. Instead of just trying to communicate with the consumer by sending the first message that pops up on his or her phone, maybe they can guide the consumer experience via a loyalty program of which he or she is a member - make it more nuanced and personalized, while still initiated by the consumer's presence at a location." pymnts.com

CFOs are not confident about their level of security
CFOs' long-term outlook for the North American economy remains strong despite their weakening confidence in their own companies' prospects, according to Deloitte. Lower expectations for growth in revenue, earnings, and domestic hiring appear to be behind this declining sentiment. From an internal standpoint, attracting and retaining finance talent remains an ongoing issue. More than 70 percent of CFOs cite initial shortages of consultative, partnering, analytical and technical skills among staff. Crisis preparedness is another issue weighing on CFOs this quarter, with cyber-security attacks cited as the most threatening potential crisis. "People resourcing has become a problem for businesses. The knowledge of cyber security threats and countermeasures is inadequate due to shortage of experienced professionals." Almost one-fourth of CFOs say they are insufficiently prepared for an attack and only 10 percent feel well-prepared. net-security.org

Merging or Buying another retailer - New Cyber Gang 'Morpho' goes after corporate IP during mergers & acquisitions  Symantec has identified a group of cybercriminals, whom they've named "Morpho," as targeting corporate intellectual property for financial gains. Morpho goes after research documents produced by civilian firms across a wide variety of industries. In 2013, the companies hit tended to be technology companies, then Morpho began going after legal and pharmaceutical firms. What all these companies have in common is that they're publicly listed, and most are in the Fortune 200. Another common thread is that attacks often occur after the corporation has been in the news as a result of possible merger and acquisition activity, he added. There's been no signs on the Dark Web of criminals trying to sell this information on the black market. We think a group of people is deliberately stealing this information for some sort of insider trading in the financial markets," he said. To attack the companies, Morpho uses watering holes -- compromised websites known to be visited by people working in the target companies. They could be hackers for hire, ready to go to work for anyone motivated enough to hire them, he said. cio.com

Cybersecurity Spending to Hit $170Bn by 2020
The worldwide cybersecurity market is set to be worth $75.4 billion in 2015, according to Visiongain-a number that is expected to reach $101 billion in 2018 (Gartner) and $170 billion by 2020 (MarketsandMarkets), translating to a CAGR of 9.8% from 2015 to 2020. Meanwhile, North America and Europe are the biggest markets. According to IDC, the main areas for growth are security analytics (SIEM) (10%); threat intelligence (10%); mobile security (18%); and cloud security (50%). infosecurity-magazine.com

User Names and Passwords Soon to Be Obsolete
Traditional one-step passwords are now being matched with alternative methods using biometric technologies such as fingerprint recognition and two-step device verification. Within the next few years we are likely to see many more consumers embracing these and other alternative methods."

Malvertising reaches record levels in June
Malvertising campaigns have reached more users than ever before, reported security firm Invincea yesterday, with many brand-name websites affected. The criminals actually bid for the prime advertising slots, though they probably pay for them with stolen credit card numbers. Then they use zero-day Adobe exploits to install clickfraud, botnet, ransomware, and banking Trojan malware. And the attackers don't stop with just one type of infection, he added. "We have seen instances where the initial infection delivers clickfraud malware and then, say, two days later, it will encrypt the hard disk," he said. The websites themselves were not hacked and, for the most part, the publishers were unaware of the malicious activity, according to Belcher, as the criminals got in through the advertising networks. Another tactic that is becoming more common with attackers is that of "sleeper" malware, which lies dormant after download for 14 hours or longer, in order to evade network sandboxes looking for suspicious activity. csoonline.com

By the Numbers: Amazon vs. Alibaba, the ecommerce giants  According to an infographic compiled by international courier ParcelHero, while Amazon ships 3 million packages a day, Alibaba ships 12 million. Another interesting factoid: On Cyber Monday, America's great ecommerce shopping day, Amazon processed 37 million orders. On Singles Day, an annual shopping holiday in China created by Alibaba itself, Alibaba processed 278 million orders. For both Alibaba and Amazon, delivering packages is only one part of multi-pronged business models, and so while Alibaba delivers more packages than Amazon, Amazon is the larger company by revenue. Last year, Jeff Bezos' company raked in almost $89 billion in sales and Jack Ma's ecommerce platform took in a bit over $12 billion. Have a look at this infographic for a more in depth look at the Amazon-Alibaba faceoff. entrepreneur.com

Boost in digital banking brings cybercrime increase
According to a research conducted by Assocham and PwC, financial frauds led to approximately USD 20 billion in direct losses annually. With the rise in smartphones and younger and more digitally savvy populations, banks have been vying to get a larger share of the customer's digital wallet. However, in this process, the banking applications by lenders are becoming increasingly vulnerable to risks such as phishing, identity theft and card skimming. Findings indicate that 74% of the population has mobile phones and this has led to a steady rise in banking on the go. thepaypers.com

Foley, Alabama Police working to curb creative shoplifting; legislation on booster bags  It's no secret that Foley has become a shopping destination in the last several years. Recent additions like Academy Sports add to the already bustling Tanger Outlets and other shopping centers dotting the city. But with attractive merchandise comes people with sticky fingers looking for something free and that's where these so-call "booster bags" come into play. "Anybody that works in the retail business for any amount of time is going to find or come up on one of these at some point in their career," Captain David White said. White said that the bags have been an issue for some time, but there has been an increase in their usage in recent years. "If you possess one of these, you possess it because you're trying to do something illegal. I mean, there's no reason for anybody to have this without wanting to shoplift something," White said. myfoxal.com

Handling the big question - Why did you leave? is the hardest of them all if, in fact, your departure was involuntary. Like Bum Phillips, the old Houston Oilers coach, once said at a luncheon I attended, "There's two types of coaches - those that have been fired and those who are waiting to be fired." And quite frankly he was almost dead-on as over 70% of executives will face involuntary departures from an employer during their career. The best position to take is one of absolute straightforwardness. Be open - be honest - and be reflective right from the beginning. But get it over quick and deal with it right at the beginning of the interview and don't make it a long-winded response. Certainly review it - rehearse it - make sure it answers the question. But get it out of the way and move on in your own mind. Look to the future and leave it behind you.

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
