LP Community Being Scammed?

2014 NRF Loss Prevention Conference & Expo attendee list info for sale  - NOT affiliated with the NRF   We received an interesting email from a Mark Prakkat with GainConference1.com, a data collection firm. Claiming to have the attendee list, emails and contact info for the 2014 NRF Loss Prevention Conference & EXPO. They even claim to have updated all the info in the last 10 days and all for just $750. They do make it clear that they are not related to the NRF and that it was not sold to them or shared by any person or authority related to the NRF. Editors note: With all of the scrutiny placed on the NRF LP list over the years and the privacy issues for all of these executives, we felt the industry should know about this development and offering as it raises some concerns. You'd think the LP community would be the last group to be targeted in a scam - but these days, it seems that no one is immune. In checking the GainConference1 website, they do seem legit. However, the spelling of the word "organisation" tends to indicate they're from the UK and their Texas phone number with the "1+" in front of the area code also shows an international origin. Especially given the UK accent on the voice mail on the other end. It turns out the sale of conference attendee lists is not uncommon. Check out these similar email hoaxes we found online - and beware the next time you get an offer in your inbox that seems to good to be true.  (Source messefrankfurt.com) (Source nesea.org) (Source dailydooh.com).

Zara rolling out new RFID system embedded inside the plastic security tags attached to garments  It is designed to improve inventory management by showing the garments that need reordering. The tags will also improve customer service and security, Inditex said. The company has already put the chip system into 700 of its more than 6,300 stores, with its flagship brand Zara going first out of a stable that also includes Massimo Dutti and Bershka. It will roll out the new technology at the rate of 500 additional stores a year. (Source reuters.com)

North American video surveillance market poised for rapid expansion - expects 'massive proliferation' of IP cameras  Worth $4.56 billion in 2013, the market is projected to reach $15.81 billion by 2020. The market has witnessed a rapid transition from analog systems to IP/network cameras—a transition that includes the expanded adoption of thermal and panoramic cameras, which can provide a 360-degree view and the ability to monitor during night and low visibility conditions. The ongoing market trend suggests that in the coming years there will be a massive proliferation of IP cameras in the market, thanks to the high image quality and low power consumption in such cameras. High revenues in recent times are in part attributable to recent terror attacks, such as the Boston Marathon bombing, which showcased the efficacy of sophisticated video surveillance systems.

Partnership for Priority Video Alarm Response completes best practices document for video verification  The guidelines delineate three different threat levels, while operationally defining a host of terms germane to video verified alarms, and important both for security companies and PSAPs. Under the guidelines, threat evaluation is based on a numeric system in which the observed presence or lack of presence of human activity dictates the actions taken by an operator. Threat level 1, for instance, is assigned when actionable video shows no apparent human activity. Threat level 2 shows human activity but no discernible suspicious or criminal activity and no apparent criminal activity about to take place. Threat level 3, the highest priority tier, shows human activity (suspicious or possibly criminal) either in progress, having just occurred, or about to take place. PPVAR plans to create training and support materials for the best practices, including a set of video files reviewed by law enforcement that illustrate the different threat levels outlined in the guidelines. The PPVAR education committee is also preparing central station operator training materials, including a complete curriculum for central stations. It’s also developing PSAP training materials requested by law enforcement to help train PSAP personnel. (Source securitysystemnews.com)

Comparing the Top Risk Ranking of the C-Suite to that of Risk Professionals
The key to being a successful leader in security is being able to enhance the organization's success through effective and efficient risk management. We frequently refer to this as "aligning security with the business". However, according to a recent survey, at face value the C-Suite clearly ranks the top risks facing the organization differently than the security professional does. Is this an indication of a problem that needs to be addressed?

C-SUITE TOP RISKS: RISK PROFESSIONALS TOP RISKS:
1) LEGAL OR REGULATORY SHIFTS 1) DATA SECURITY / PRIVACY
2) LITIGATION OR CLAIMS 2) ECONOMIC CONDITIONS
3) REGULATORY COMPLIANCE 3) BRAND / REPUTATION
4) BRAND / REPUTATION 4) NATURAL DISASTER
5) ECONOMIC CONDITIONS 5) REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
6) WORKFORCE HEALTH AND SAFETY 6) LITIGATION OR CLAIMS
7) BUSINESS CONTINUITY / CRISIS MANAGEMENT EXECUTION 7) LEGAL OR REGULATORY SHIFTS

Data Breach Explosion Proves Costly - NY Attorney General: 'Nothing Short of Staggering' - Tripling since 2006  If New York State is illustrative of a national trend, hacking poses a greater threat to businesses and other organizations than other types of data breaches. External cyberattacks represent 40 percent of the nearly 5,000 breaches recorded in the state from 2006 through 2013, according to a new report issued by the state attorney general. Five of the 10 largest breaches reported to the New York AG have occurred since 2011. "In just eight years, the number of victims in New York has exploded. With 7.3 million records exposed in 2013, the cost of last year's 900-plus data breaches to the public and private sectors topped $1.37 billion." (Source govinfosecurity.com)

Walgreen Weighs Riding Tax-Inversion Wave & May Relocate to Switzerland if It Chooses to Buy Remainder of Alliance Boots to Reduce U.S. Tax Rates  Walgreen is currently thinking about leaving American shores, as part a plan to buy the rest of Alliance Boots GmbH, which operates a U.K. drugstore chain and is based in Switzerland. The move could help Walgreen lower its U.S. tax bill saving the company hundreds of millions of dollars a year—money that wouldn't flow into the U.S. Treasury. If it goes ahead, it would be an unusual use of the controversial and complex maneuver known as an inversion. While well tested among pharmaceutical and manufacturing companies that earn much of their income overseas or have assets like patents that are held offshore, the move has never been attempted by a major U.S. retailer, according to tax experts. Walgreen spokesman Michael Polzin said the company would still pay at least $2 billion a year in federal, state and other taxes. But an inversion would facilitate ways to reduce Uncle Sam's cut. Walgreen executives are leaning toward moving to Switzerland but are concerned possible new legislation from Congress could become a roadblock, according to a person familiar with their thinking. Congress is considering passing a bill to make inversions more difficult. (Source wsj.com)

Mall of America's giant $50M makeover ditches '90s in bid to stay hip - Malls across America are trying to lure the new Millennials  The Mall of America, where 520 stores beckon 40 million visitors a year, is in the midst of an ambitious $50 million makeover to refresh its interior as it seeks to attract more upscale and trendy stores in a fiercely competitive market. The ongoing face-lift is the first major update since the mall opened in 1992 and will be completed just as it prepares for its next major act — a $325 million expansion that includes a JW Marriot hotel, an office tower and more than 50 shops and restaurants set to debut in August 2015. The Mall of America isn’t the only one sprucing up. Other malls in Minnesota and across the country are scrambling to attract the most popular stores at a time when shoppers have more ways than ever to shop, including online. Mall operators are pouring more money into redeveloping their existing properties at a time when few malls are being built. (Source startribune.com)

U.S. Traditional Teen retailers closing more stores - 1,000+ & counting - Off-Price & Fast Fashion taking the lead - With Forever 21, H&M, Uniqlo and Zara Leading the Way  In mid-May, American Eagle said it had identified 150 stores to close in North America in the next three years and is closely watching 300 more that have leases coming due. Abercrombie has closed 260 locations since 2011 and Pacific Sun had closed 230 stores in that period. Aeropostale is expected to close up to 300 locations in the next few years, including a number of its P.S. from Aeropostale stores, he said. Abercrombie recently said it is on track to close 60 to 70 stores this fiscal year through lease expirations and more than 500 of Abercrombie's store leases are up for renewal through 2016. Thirty percent of store supply could come out of the teen market over the next three years, according to a report last week from Jefferies analyst Randal J. Konik. (Source wptv.com)

Banks start using analytics to identify online payment fraud
In an attempt to control frauds in electronic payments, banks have started using analytics to stop suspicious transactions. However, an out-of-the-way transaction could get declined if the client does not respond to a phone call or a message immediately. Financial institutions such as HDFC Bank have already implemented analytics software. In banking transactions, banks can ask the customer for additional information to verify the transaction if it is undertaken on a different computer. But in the case of card payments, banks have to rely on direct contact with the customer. (Source thepaypers.com)

Hackers Go After Big Money Bank Accounts
In what can only best be described as a zombie threat to payments security, hackers have resurrected the heretofore-defunct GameoverZeus bot.net that was used to infect computers with malware. According to internet security blogger Brian Krebs, after a month of inactivity after federal officials shut the bot net down, phishing emails laced with booby trapped attachments started going out from a site that shares roughly 90 percent of its code base with GameoverZeus. While the previous instantiation of GameoverZeus was based on an advanced P2P network, the undead version makes use of an approach known as fast-flux hosting. That allows botnets behind ever-changing proxy networks of compromised systems more resilient to takedowns. (Source pymnts.com)

34,000 pairs of Nike trainers, Ugg Boots and Louis Vuitton bags: Britain's Biggest-Ever Fake Goods Racket worth $29M U.S. is smashed  Masterminds Nirmon Grover and Ajit Arura were jailed for three years each for their part in importing fake designer goods - after more than 80,000 items were seized at a storage unit in Alperton, northwest London. The fake haul consisted of 34,100 pairs of Nike trainers and Ugg boots, as well as Louis Vuitton bags, designer fragrances, headphones and fake Rolexes and Breitling watches - which if they were real would have been worth in excess of 17 million pounds. That's $29 million U.S. Experts believe this is the most sophisticated operation they have ever come across, involving a global supply link to China and Europe, and the sentencing was the result of a five-year investigation. Andrew Clooney, Senior Prosecutor at Brent Council, said: 'The investigation stretched back a number of years as each time we went back to the storage facility, more counterfeit items were seized.'

2 Sentenced To Prison Time In CVS Security Guard's Slaying in Detroit
Two men will spend between 33 and 60 years in prison for second-degree murder in the shooting death of a 24-year-old security guard as he tried to prevent a carjacking outside a Detroit pharmacy. The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Jeremy Jackson, 24, was sentenced to 33 to 60 years in prison for second degree murder, and 10 to 20 years for armed robbery consecutive to two years for a felony firearms charge. Co-defendant, 20-year-old Jamare Rucker, received the same sentence; but he was also convicted on one count of carjacking. They sentences were handed down in Wayne County Circuit Court Tuesday.

Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy fired for overbilling Best Buy for security work
A Spokane County Sheriff’s deputy was fired this week after he billed a local business for work he didn’t do, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich said Tuesday. Deputy Charles “Chuck” Sciortino left his post at Best Buy on Black Friday to work patrol but billed the store for a full 12-hour shift, Knezovich said. Knezovich said he talked to Sciortino that night while Sciortino was still providing security at the electronics retailer, but the deputy did not mention he had a scheduling problem with his job. Sciortino was fired Monday after an internal investigation revealed multiple incidents similar to the Black Friday abandonment of his post, Knezovich said. Sciortino was in full uniform while providing security at the electronics store, the sheriff added. “This was conduct unbecoming of a deputy,” Knezovich said. (Source spokesman.com)

137 member York, Pa. ORC shoplifting gang ring leader sentenced to state prison  Of the more than 100 people arrested in the ring, he is the only one to get a state prison sentence, according to the York County District Attorney's Office. James Lee Giuffrida, 31, of the 1400 block of West Market Street, was sentenced Tuesday to 6 3/4 to 13 1/2 years, five years probation and fined $55,000 for organized retail theft, criminal conspiracy, retail theft, receiving stolen property, corrupt organizations and dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities. According to West York Borough Police, Giuffrida recruited and directed others to shoplift merchandise from area stores. The items were then returned to the same stores by a different person, or to a different store, and exchanged for gift cards. In an ongoing investigation, police arrested and charged 137 other people as part of the ring. Giuffrida bought the gift cards from the thieves at a reduced price, then sold them for their full value on various websites, police said. Giuffrida also instructed the people working for him to steal small, expensive items, such as car headlights, printer ink cartridges, razor blades, dental whitening strips, batteries and designer glasses. Giuffrida sold these items on several websites, police said. (Source ydr.com)

4 ORC suspects charged in Rochester, N.Y. this week
Rochester, this week four people were arrested on a more serious charge — organized retail crime enterprise, a felony involving suspects conspiring with each other to commit theft for profit. This week, all four arrests relating to organized retail crime enterprise involved small-ticket items that were stolen from Walmart on Farmington Road. The most recent theft occurred Monday, when William York, 29, of 61A Winter St., and Suzanne Anderson, 47, of 119 Milton Road, Apt. 4, allegedly worked together to steal about $12 worth of greeting cards and then return them to the store, according to a police affidavit. York allegedly stole the greeting cards before going back into Walmart and returning the cards using another customer’s receipt. The receipt was allegedly found on the ground by Anderson, according to the affidavit. Police this week also arrested Jordan Schieferdecker, 23, of 10 West Concord St., Dover, and Myriah Allard, 23, of 9½ Mechanic St., Dover, in connection to a May 12 theft incident at Walmart.

Trio stole baby formula to feed heroin habits, had list of 35 stores in New Jersey A trio of heroin-addicted baby formula shoplifters had a list of pharmacies in 35 towns — all but four of them in Bergen County — when they were caught moments after a theft in Old Tappan. A manager at the Old Tappan CVS in the Bi-State Plaza called police Saturday night after one of the trio entered the store with an empty tote bag, used the bathroom, then left after filling the bag with baby formula, Police Chief Thomas Shine said. “The suspects admitted to being heroin addicts,” Shine said. “They allegedly shoplift on a daily basis to support this habit. “The items taken are resold to bodegas in Paterson,” he said. Shine said the stores on the list are in: Allendale, Bergenfield, Closter, Cresskill, Dumont, Edgewater, Englewood, Fair Lawn, Fairview, Fort Lee, Garfield, Glen Rock, Hackensack, Mahwah, Midland Park, Montvale, Old Tappan, Paramus, Park Ridge, Passaic, Paterson, Ridgefield Park, Ridgewood, River Edge, Rochelle Park, Saddle Brook, Teaneck, Tenafly, Totowa, Washington Twp., Wayne, Westwood, Woodcliff Lake, Wood Ridge and Wyckoff.

Gang suspected in Houston, TX jewelry theft ring
The warning being issued says the theft suspects may be part of a gang of thieves. The ring has been stealing from jewelry stores across the country since at least the beginning of May. They’re using fraudulent California driver’s licenses to obtain store credit and then purchase a high-end watch that goes from $7,000 to $25,000. The licenses being used make it difficult for a jeweler to detect as fraudulent. Store owners are being urged to review contracts for in-store credit to determine what to do in case of chargebacks in fraud cases. (Source click2houston.com)

Your success is directly tied to the relationships you have with your stores, with your colleagues, and with your vendors. The ability to develop, nurture, and grow those relationships is critical if you expect to deliver the results you need. And as in the case of all relationships, it's also about what you bring to the table and the value you add. Oftentimes, one's biggest challenge is usually driven by your weakest or worst relationship and over time those are the ones that'll have the biggest impact. So take the time to access them and remember it's never too late to try to change one.
