7-Eleven fills 46 new Asset Protection positions - with 9 new jobs still remaining
Filling that many jobs in such a short span of time is just an incredible feat that speaks volumes about the effort and direction of the AP program. As we all look for examples of "reinventing" a program certainly this model can be used for such a purpose.

Impersonation of an innocent victim (Identity Fraud) now accounts for over a half (52%) of all fraud in the UK  CIFAS has today revealed that data driven identity crime accounts for 2 in 3 of all frauds. Account – or facility – takeover frauds constitute 14% of all frauds, meaning that two thirds of all frauds (66%) related directly to the abuse of identity details. The number of frauds against plastic card accounts (e.g. credit or store cards) rose by 19% in first half of 2013 compared with the last six months of 2012. Frauds targeting loan products (personal unsecured loans and payday loans) also increased markedly over the same period. (Source

Fast-food workers one-day strike yesterday in St. Louis, Kansas City, Detroit, and Flint Mich. for better pay  From New York to several Midwestern cities, thousands of fast-food workers have been holding one-day strikes during peak mealtimes, quickly drawing national attention to their demands for much higher wages. What began in Manhattan eight months ago, first spread to Chicago and Washington, and this week has hit St. Louis, Kansas City, Detroit and Flint, Mich. On Wednesday alone, workers picketed McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Popeye’s and Long John Silver’s restaurants in those cities with an ambitious agenda: pay of $15 an hour, twice what many now earn. These strikes are planned for Milwaukee on Thursday. (Source

Retailers Prioritize Convenience, Not Security
Many retailers are opting to keep their websites and credit-card processing systems easy to use, and this makes them more vulnerable to cyberattacks than they would be if they chose to beef up security. (Source

Staples goes all out with new NY state government contract by pricing 220 items at one cent  Talk about trying to get the business. This one takes the cake. Staples Inc. was selected from among 10 bidders for the contract to be New York's primary supplier of office products, allowing state and local governments and school districts to save money by harnessing their huge buying power. Of nearly 300 items on the contract's core products list, Staples has priced 220 of them at one cent. From surge protectors to a $1,122.12 paper shredder. Penny pricing may seem crazy, but Staples actually may have much more to gain than it could lose on the nearly-free items, said Arun Jain, a marketing professor at the University at Buffalo School of Management. Not only would Staples' bid have virtually eliminated any competition for the contract, he said, it also let the company gain a foothold with the state of New York, which has been overhauling its procurement procedures to increase savings and efficiency.

Black Hat hackers-security conference shows- how to bypass office security systems  Many door and window sensors, motion detectors and keypads that are part of security systems used in millions of homes and businesses can be bypassed by using relatively simple techniques, according to researchers from security consultancy firm Bishop Fox. Many door sensors rely on magnetic fields to work and if you hit them with a high enough magnetic field, they trip, Porter said. Window sensors are vulnerable to the same issue. Most motion detectors, even newer ones, use infrared to detect significant changes in the surrounding room's temperature, Porter said. Normally, walking around in a room would set off these sensors, but using something as simple as a piece of styrofoam to shield your body can trick them. Motion detectors that can be reset by pointing a source of light of a certain wavelength -- infrared or near infrared -- at them. This blinds the sensors for as long as the light source is pointed at them plus an additional three seconds. Many keypads are using old cellular technology and can be easily fooled by setting up a rogue base station -- a small cell tower. The keypads will then connect to the attacker-controlled base station instead of the real cellular network, meaning that even if they send out an alert, it wouldn't reach its intended destination, he said.

How employers can fight back against fake job references
Here's what's on the homepage of "The Reference Store," which bills itself as the world's leading virtual reference service: "Unemployed? Fired? Forced Out? Bad Reference? Create an entirely new work history using our fake reference service. Don't let these issues keep you from finding meaningful work. Explain away these periods using one of our Virtual Companies. Our fake companies are so real, our Virtual Companies actually get sales calls from the public." 30 percent of employers surveyed reported that they have caught a fake reference on a candidate's application. One obvious thing companies can do to avoid the problem of fake references is to not place so much importance in the references candidates provide when they apply for a job. Most people don't like to give critical feedback on a reference check, and large companies, for legal reasons, provide only basic data. (Source

MELBOURNE, FL --Edge Information Management, Inc. (Edge), a prominent provider of employment screening services, has announced today their partnership with Daon Trusted Identity Services (DTIS), a leader in electronic fingerprint captures.

With this new partnership, Edge has increased their network of LiveScan fingerprint locations to over 200 in the state of Florida, allowing their health care clients, within the state, easy and convenient access to multiple sites.

 Scaling up RFID deployment and C&A clothing
"never out-of-stock"

Leading apparel retailers and department stores have declared that this is the time for RFID. Understand the best practices for a deployment and practical issues such as rollout planning, tagging strategy, integrating inventory management and loss prevention and integrating RFID data with existing back-end systems. Learn from Joachim Wilkens, Director of Supply Chain Development, C&A Group how their RFID system ensures that "never out of stock" items such as women underwear are always on the shelf.

If you’ve missed the recent RFID Journal ``RFID in retail´´
Virtual Event, you can still find out about how C&A Expands RFID Usage to Track Inventory.

Dutch clothing company C&A is indeed expanding its RFID system from what was initially a trial involving five of its stores in Germany. After a successful trial deployment of an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC RFID solution in 2012, the firm plans to employ EPC tags and readers to manage shipments of high-demand items to a total of 25 stores, and to use the technology to monitor inventory at each location. The system provides advance shipping notices as goods leave the factory bound for a specific store, as well as inventory data that tracks which goods are in each store's back room and on the sales floor, which have been sold and, in some cases, what has passed through the doors of a particular location. Learn how the system ensures that "never out of stock" (NOS) items (including women and children's underwear, men's and women's jeans, and men's suits, trousers and blazers) are always on the shelf.
