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

The NRF's "Women in LP Caucus" Committee Chair Joan Manson - This week's LPNN episode  The retail Loss Prevention industry has had a difficult time recruiting and retaining women, as have all of the various security and law enforcement related groups in the protective services category of the Department of Labor. According to the most recent National Retail Security Survey women account for 18.4% of our population. Which represents one of the strongest groups throughout the entire category. With a 13% population in cyber security, 13% in law enforcement, and 11% in information security, the retail industry has shown that it's one of the most attractive professions throughout the United States. Certainly we have a long way to go in making it even more reflective of our society and attracting more women to our industry. The NRF's Women in LP Caucus committee has been doing a great job over the years of providing mentoring and networking functions and we took the time to discuss it with their Chair Joan Manson at the recent NRF LP Conference last month. Be sure to catch the episode and see how you can get involved.

Kroger conducts first company-wide "Code Adam" in 2,600+ stores on the same day - Leading the way for Safe Shopping  The Kroger Co. conducted its first enterprise wide Code Adam test today at all of its 2600+ stores. The Code Adam program is tested regularly at its stores but this year a special emphasis has been placed on this very important program. As such, senior management across the company aligned to ensure that every store would conduct the test on the same day to remind our associates and customers of the company commitment to furnishing a safe shopping experience for their families. Code Adam is a "missing child" safety program - named in memory of Adam Walsh, the 6-year-old son of John Walsh (the host of Fox's America's Most Wanted). Thanks to Kroger's LP leadership for sharing the story with the Daily.

Retail is #1 sector for lawsuits by patent trolls - With Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart the top patent-troll targets  The Wall Street Journal has a report on the numbers from research firm Patent Freedom: So far this year, 136 retailers have been named in 264 lawsuits brought by trolls, which are less-colloquially referred to as NPEs, or non practicing entities, which buy patents on the open market and then look for somebody to sue for infringement. Many of the suits revolve around technology used by retailers for store management or mobile shopping, but from the trolls' perspective, it's more profitable to sue the retailers individually than the company making the technology. One theory is that patent trolls hope that unlike tech companies, retailers aren't used to dealing with troll suits and will settle quickly. (Source bizjournals.com)

Meet Dollar Tree, The New $18 Billion Power Retailer - Wal-Mart's & Target's push for smaller stores may speed up!  The acquisition of Family Dollar by Dollar Tree Dollar Tree has created, overnight, an $18 billion 13,000 store powerhouse. This newly combined company has some pretty big implications for not just the deep discount segment of retail, but mass merchants too. Mass retailers that are likely the wariest. Chains from Walmart all the way down to regional players such as Shopko have been chasing these shoppers for decades. As long as the three largest deep discount operators were slugging it out — and Family Dollar was losing — the larger retailers could focus on fixing other parts of their business and take some time to develop smaller formats that are better able to compete. That is no longer true. It’s possible that Walmart will consider an acquisition, maybe even of Dollar General. Walmart may consider kicking its small format expansion into high gear. It already has plans to open roughly 300 small-format stores this year but could get more aggressive. There will be 13,000 stores and a CEO with an eye for growth. Meet Dollar Tree, the new power retailer. (Source forbes.com)

Small Merchants at Increased Risk of Data Theft - Working with your POS provider  80% of attacks by hackers on retailers prey on the estimated 5 million small to mid-sized retailers in the U.S., leaving only a small percentage on the less than 2,000 merchants who process between one and six million credit or debit transactions per year. That's according to the PCI Security Standards Council, a global forum made up of the largest credit card companies that oversees data security compliance. However, the majority of this group’s scrutiny still falls on a small number of very large retailers, which has allowed the exponentially larger group of small merchants to slip under the compliance radar. Retailers are ultimately responsible for securing customer data, but the POS provider is a vital partner in this pursuit and can implement tokenization and P2PE technology. (Source pointofsale.com)

Payments, Fraud By The (Fed’s) Numbers
new Federal Reserve report shows how crooks are chipping away at the industry’s fraud defenses. The192-page “2013 Federal Reserve Payments Study Detailed Report” provides more detailed information about the summary findings the Fed published in December. In 2012, general-purpose credit, debit and prepaid cards represented 92 percent of the total unauthorized transactions identified as third-party fraud and 63 percent of the value of those unauthorized transactions. Unauthorized third-party fraud payments initiated by check ($1.1 billion) and ACH ($1.2 billion) were small relative to the total authorized values for check and ACH respectively, the report notes. Among the fraudulent transactions in 2012, 13.7 million were by credit card, 14.9 million by debit or general-purpose prepaid card, and 1.3 million via ATM withdrawal. By value, credit card fraud totaled $2.3 billion in fraud by credit card, debit or general-purpose prepaid card represented $1.5 billion, and ATM withdrawals $300 million. In terms of total value of unauthorized third-party fraud card payments, card-present, at $2.4 billion, was greater than that of card-not-present, which totaled $1.6 billion. (Source pymnts.com)

Diebold rolls out new anti-skimmer card - ActivEdge
ActivEdge approaches skimming from a different angle, literally, by requiring users to insert cards into the reader via the long edge, instead of the traditional short edge. By shifting a card's angle 90 degrees, ActivEdge prevents all modern skimming devices from reading the card's full magnetic stripe, eliminating the devices' ability to steal card data. ActivEdge prevents known skimming-related fraud by mitigating criminals' four primary attack vectors: external skimming, internal skimming, USB sniffing and device substitution. ActivEdge's encrypted technology inhibits criminal modifications to the card reader. Its encrypted communication to the ATM's central processing unit eliminates the ability to fraudulently capture and track data. In addition, each reader is paired with a specific ATM, precluding the installation of fraudulent readers. (Source prnewswire.com)

Consumers recognize mobile wallets, but security concerns prevent widespread use  The majority of U.S. consumers recognize digital wallets as an alternative to cash-based transactions, but use remains at less than one-third thanks to security concerns, according to a new study. The 2014 Digital Wallet Usage Study revealed that despite nearly 80 percent of consumers being aware of digital wallets—including major players like PayPal, Google Wallet, Apple Passbook—security concerns remain the main barrier to adoption, followed by lack of usability versus credit cards/cash (37 percent) and not being top of mind as a form of payment at the time of purchase (32 percent).

Report: Consumers Feel Online Shopping Safer than In-Store
A new study on global fraud found more consumers believe their financial data is secure during online transactions than during brick-and-mortar transactions. Overall, nearly 30 percent of global consumers do not trust retailers to protect their personal payment information against breaches and hacking attempts. The ACI/Aite report said a three-pronged approach can restore consumer confidence in the face of breaches and the resulting fraud: implement a strong security and fraud-prevention strategy, communicate effectively and educate consumers. Also, banks need to step up and help retailers with that process. (Source cardnotpresent.com)

Serial shoplifter arrested two times in one week after pulling gun on Target LP officer then hits another Target store Saturday  A South Carolina man wanted for pulling a gun on a Target employee last week after getting caught shoplifting was arrested Saturday while attempting to steal more merchandise from another Target store. At the store, a loss prevention officer confronted Waldrop, but rather than confessing, Waldrop pulled a silver handgun on the officer instead. He eventually eluded authorities when he drove off in a cream-colored car, Greenville County Deputy Drew Pinciaro said. However, less than a week later, police received a call at a different Target store in Anderson, about 40 miles away from the first store. Apparently the store’s employees had recognized Waldrop from surveillance photos posted across various Target stores. Waldrop was arrested and now faces charges for armed robbery and possession of a gun during the commission of a violent crime, both of which are felonies. (Source guns.com)

Orlando woman admits to Organized shoplifting to support heroin habit
A 42-year-old Orlando woman, who admitted taking part in a shoplifting ring to feed her heroin habit, was arrested by Leesburg police Friday afternoon. Police were called to Lowe’s on U.S. Highway 441 by a loss prevention officer, who said several Hispanic males had been stealing items from the store and returning them in exchange for gift cards. The loss prevention officer said she saw a Hispanic male returning items like those recently stolen and went to look for a white female that has been seen with the men. The loss prevention officer said she spotted a woman, later identified as Sarah Oliver, reportedly concealing shelving items in her purse before leaving the store. Oliver was approached, her purse was checked and 52 shelf racks — worth more than $240 — were recovered, according to an arrest affidavit. (Source dailycommercial.com)

Nicole Morrison, 29, faces a charge of larceny of drugs. On Dec. 8, 2012, police responded to the CVS on Station Avenue in South Yarmouth, where Morrison had worked for several months, for a report of larceny.

The supervisor told police that the estimated value of the missing pills was $3,500. When confronted by police, Morrison said she had started stealing pills about three weeks earlier when she became a pharmacy technician. (Source capcodonline.com)

Former Sears employee Theft Suspect Withdraws Plea

On the video she could see Bawden taking cash out of the store register and putting it into her pocket. There were also questions regarding a Sears gift card that had been used at K-Mart three times by Bawden. An investigation continued and uncovered more thefts on surveillance video by Bawden. In all, eight incidents of Bawden taking money from the cash drawer were discovered, beginning Sept. 5 and ending Sept. 15. These totaled $367. (Source gantdaily.com)

Metro police concerned about new Walmart Supercenter in Madison, Tenn. - Asking for more resources - Walmart Takes the Feedback Seriously  For Metro Nashville Police it also means a lot of headaches. Forty-seven percent of Madison's shoplifting incidents this year all happened at Walmarts. It's a huge drain on the department's resources. "It takes away from officers being in the neighborhoods addressing crime issues and quality of life issues as well," Gourdin said. Walmart officials say they value their partnerships with local communities. They say if there's a large percentage of shoplifting reports within Walmart stores that's demonstrative that their safety measures are working. It means they're catching shoplifters. A Walmart spokesperson issued this statement: "We constantly evaluate how we can be doing better in terms of our asset protection measures and we are constantly updating those measures." Officers say they have asked Walmart to add more resources. "We are looking for more partnership with the Walmarts to help us out," Gourdin said. It's not that police don't welcome the new business. In fact, they say they're glad it's here. A Walmart spokesperson said they change their security measures on a store-by-store basis and evaluate them that way. They say they appreciate the feedback and take it seriously. (Source wsmv.com)

Using refrigeration-unit controls to ‘deep-freeze’ cargo theft
Globally, cargo theft is a multibillion-dollar industry. The types of goods stolen cover a wide range from electronics to clothing to tobacco products. The leading target of cargo thieves in North America, today, is food—meat in particular—a commodity that is typically transported by refrigerated trailers. Meat prices, driven upward by U.S. drought conditions in 2012, contributed to increased theft of meat products, a trend that continues. Yet, as some savvy refrigerated fleet managers are discovering, their trailers’ sophisticated refrigeration-control systems not only enhance the efficiency of delivery operations, but also help solve cases of cargo theft with certain options.

Enables automated notification of exception events and provides workflow tools for compliance

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, - Agilence, Inc., the leader in cloud-based exception reporting solutions for retail, today announced the release of ACT, Automated Compliance Tool, for Retail 20/20. ACT enables retailers to define alert triggers based on individual events, summary data or KPIs and to create workflows for triaging and reporting on the subsequent alerts.

These alerts are coupled with supporting information and sent directly to store managers and other field personnel for investigation.

“ACT is a major step forward in the evolution of exception reporting,” said Derek M. Rodner, VP of Product Strategy, Agilence, Inc. “The solution delivers unprecedented results and our customers are already seeing significant improvements in efficiency with its automated notification and workflow management capabilities.”

Automated notification: The new engine also enables email & SMS notifications to be sent to multiple roles and users based on severity so that users only need to react if exceptions are identified and assigned.

Workflows and Reporting: Each alert includes a specific action and recommended resolution. Tracking of alerts resolved and unresolved provides the basis for compliance management, enabling district managers and corporate-level users to monitor their direct reports and verify that alerts are being acknowledged and investigated.

At the end of most interviews, candidates are given the opportunity to ask questions. Surprisingly enough, most candidates are unprepared for that question, itself. So take the time in your preparation to develop a few well thought out questions that reflect your knowledge of the company, their future plans and how you fit within them. Certainly your questions should also focus around the variables that increase the success of the specific position you're applying for and not deal with the benefits, salary, or work schedule, travel requirements, or expenses. As these questions will turn off an interviewer and are premature. Your questions should be a reflection of the type of executive you are and will be if they hire you and therefore should be designed to show how you'll be successful and valuable for their organization.
