News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
 

Retailing has done a brilliant job entertaining and welcoming people into the fold. Maybe it’s time to protect them as well - Are You Sure You’re Safe?  In light of recent events–bombings in Boston, shootings in Newtown and the all-too-common armed robberies, are we nearing the tipping point when it becomes a retail mantra? It’s clear that the constant threat of violence, to which we have become so desensitized, has become the new normal and retailers who are in denial or choose to ignore the situation, are just making their stores, employees and customers very tempting targets. Retail is among the most vulnerable to these despicable acts by the disenfranchised among us. Retail is the anchor in many communities and must be seen as a safe haven. But the truth is that security for customers and employees is virtually non-existent. And if it does exist, it’s there to protect assets not people. Editors note: Here's an article from a very respected website in the retail community and the article itself is a great commentary of what's going on in our society and how the retailers need to take action and support more investment in ensuring a safe environment. Take a few minutes to read it and pass it around to your senior management teams. Maybe it'll help next time we need to respond to the increased violence we're seeing in our stores and our nation. Just a thought. (Source therobinreport.com)

Mobile security management market to hit billion dollar mark
The Mobile Security Management (MSM) market is emerging as a strong, fledgling submarket of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM). As Mobile Device Management (MDM) evolves into application and content management, the core driver for this evolution is the demand for greater security around corporate assets, wherever they may reside and regardless of format. Concerns for data leak prevention, access control, compliance reporting, and monitoring are pushing EMM providers to increasingly provide more security-based mobility features to their existing solutions.

Rochester, N.Y., is a magnet for area shoplifters - City police hope publicity of arrests will stem the trend & their new retailerslink.com site will help LP share info  The city’s crime statistics — at least in the willful concealment line — have risen, but this may be a consequence of the city being a big box hub drawing shoppers from neighboring communities, and not the result of Rochester residents being outstandingly dishonest. January through mid-August, shows that there were 151 people charged with willful concealment (the official term for shoplifting), but of that number only 65 had Rochester addresses. Fewer than half of willful concealments in Rochester are being committed by city residents. property crimes are the No. 1 offences in Rochester and that when shoplifting, within that broad category, began to increase, the police department decided to try to counter this trend, by publicizing the arrests that were made. Since March, the head shots of those arrested have been given to newspapers and posted on the PD’s Facebook page. The captain said it was too early to gauge if the increased publicity was having a deterrent affect on shoplifting. The RPD has also made available a website, retailerslink.com, to local stores, where, once they are signed up, they can share information on the willful concealment problem. It is billed as a “loss prevention resource.” Police Chief Mike Allen said that tackling shoplifting was a priority of his department this year. (Source fosters.com)

Retailers utilizing in-store security cameras for high-tech analytics – optimizing the consumer experience, staff efficiency and profits  Retail security cameras aren’t just being used to prevent theft, they’re also now being used to customize the shopping experience of the consumer and, as a result, boost sales. Cameras can track shoppers’ movements so that retailers can make changes based on behavior. Retailers are using the technology for floor-plan optimization, evaluating the appeal of various products, measuring the effectiveness of marketing and merchandise programs, and optimizing their staffing levels and schedules and the way their staff interacts with the customers.

Jesta to Pay Refunds, $1.2M to FTC on Cell Charges
The smartphone warnings looked ominous: "Virus detected," coupled with a robot that looked a lot like the Android operating system logo. Except according to the Federal Trade Commission, the warnings were "a scam" by a company whose own executive in an internal document called its product "a terrible user experience." The agency sued Jesta Digital LLC in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia yesterday, charging the company with violating the FTC Act, which bars unfair and deceptive acts. The case immediately settled, with Jesta agreeing to pay $1.2 million to the FTC and issue refunds to “a large number” of consumers. What the company did do was charge consumers $9.99 a month for 20 downloads of ringtones and other items unrelated to virus removal—a fact which was disclosed in tiny print in a spot where most consumers wouldn’t notice, according to the FTC. The charges were added to the consumer’s monthly phone bill. (Source abcnews.com)

Michigan Retailers Association names ORC bill author State Representative Joseph Graves "Legislator of the Year"  The Michigan Retailers Association spearheaded getting the law passed last year to fill a gap that existed between the petty thefts of single items and the more sophisticated criminals who are looking to make a profit, according to William Hallan, vice president for governmental affairs and general counsel. These aren’t opportunistic criminals who steal a pack of gum,” Hallan said. “There is a whole network of individuals involved in this organized crime.” Hallan sits on the statute-mandated Organized Retail Crime Advisory Board along with representatives from the State Attorney General’s Office, State Police and county prosecutors. The board is tasked by Gov. Rick Snyder to monitor the effectiveness of the new law over time. He said there is more to the law than just protecting businesses and consumers from monetary loss. He said one of the main targets of resellers is baby formula and prescription drugs, which can become spoiled or tainted if stored inappropriately or carelessly repackaged. Hallan said the organized criminals also tend to be more aggressive and willing to resort to violence. Michigan’s law was sponsored by Genesee County State Rep. Joseph Graves, whose wife was a manager at Meijer. The law passed handily, moving to the desk of the governor and took effect March 31st. (Source mlive.com)

The 3 Traits Essential to Success
Success is based on a number of things: how bad do you want it? How much are you willing to risk to get it? When it comes down to it, will you fight to win? Facing obstacles and fighting them is critical for any team that wants to be successful. To be successful you have to have these three qualities, and don't let anyone or anything stop you from making your own luck! (Believe you are special)

3 Fast Ways to Make Yourself Better at Your Job 
In order to have more opportunities in the workplace, and for yourself, you need to gain attention. To gain attention, you need to be involved; whether it's through building a community at work, or connecting with other teams at work, bringing attention to what you can offer and becoming better at your job, is about (getting involved.)

 

You Must Know Fear to Succeed
To become a fearless leader, you have to look fear square in the eye, and let it motivate and inspire you to do great things. If you know your fear, inside and out, then you can understand where it stems from, and, essentially, tackle it. Being a fearless leader doesn't mean not being afraid, it means knowing your fear and turning it into a new path for yourself. (False Evidence Appearing Real)

How to Organize Your Day for Success
We only have so much time in our work days for working, how can we organize our already packed schedule to become more successful? All it takes are some small tweaks, protecting your precious time, and being aware of what your strengths are(Productivity is higher when doing something you enjoy)

Self-reflection is something many avoid or refuse to allow to creep up and point to exactly what he or she needs to look at. Hidden behind rationalizations, self reflection in actuality can be an eye-opening experience. Popping up when you least expect it, but most notably late at night when you're staring at the ceiling with no other outside interferences lending you license to deny it. Self reflection is the one person you should make it a point to face. It just might make a difference tomorrow.
