IAI and Vector Security Recognize Remarkable Women in Loss Prevention

The International Association of Interviewers (IAI) has teamed up with Vector Security to recognize remarkable women in loss prevention through a special edition of the CFInsider, a publication of IAI. The group selected individuals who are well-rounded, tenured in their profession, value continuing education and are all-around excellent leaders in their organizations as well as the overall loss prevention field.

"With only a small fraction of females at the highest ranking level of the loss prevention hierarchy, it's important to recognize stellar women in the field. By doing so, we hope to continue to attract other women into such an amazing industry full of opportunity," said Wayne Hoover, CFI, executive director for IAI. "We’re also proud to partner with Vector Security in this annual initiative to recognize these remarkable loss prevention professionals."

IAI based its selections on the key principles of IAI, then narrowed the list based upon these criteria:

Industry Commitment - Making time to get involved is a deep commitment. Our honorees are significantly involved in developing people and this industry by committing their time at industry events, associations and work groups.

Dedication to Learning - It takes a confident person to admit they don’t know everything. Our honorees understand that life is a journey of learning and have an external commitment to learning, demonstrated by certifications, memberships and involvement.

Leadership Qualities - IAI embraces the ancient concept of “servant leadership” and our honorees embody those qualities. One of the most important descriptions of a servant leader is gratitude.

Career Journey - A career path can be as diverse as the individuals you meet along the way. Our honorees have taken different paths that provided valuable and unique lessons along the way. There is not one “right” career path, as our honorees clearly demonstrate.

IAI will continue to recognize and honor remarkable women in the LP field each year by devoting a special edition of the CFInsider to them, as well as columns in their regular publication and dedicated space on their website, www.certifiedinterviewer.com.

Congratulations to this year's Remarkable Women in Loss Prevention!

White House Calls Cyberattacks & Credit Card Data Theft 'Grave National Security Danger' - 1st time it's been classified that way  The White House on Tuesday said cyberattacks pose a grave threat to U.S. national security and urged Congress to pass new laws to strengthen the nation’s digital infrastructure. "Cyberthreats pose one of the greatest national security dangers the United States faces, ranging from vulnerabilities in our critical infrastructure to identity theft from credit card information,” spokesman Josh Earnest said at a White House briefing. Mr. Earnest said the Obama administration has “enhanced the government’s capabilities and forged relationships with the private sector to prevent and mitigate cyber incidents while increasing efforts to prosecute cyber criminals.” But more should be done, including new legislation that could help tackle such “immediate and evolving” threats, he said.

Five states launch Home Depot breach investigation
The attorneys general of California, Connecticut and Illinois are reportedly leading a multi-state investigation into the recent data breach at The Home Depot Inc. The states disclosed the joint investigation on Sept.9, following Home Depot’s announcement that in-store payment systems at its U.S. and Canadian stores had been hacked in a breach that potentially could be one of the biggest attacks yet. (Source chainstoreage.com)

Senators call for investigation of security practices at Home Depot - Your Processes Could be Under Federal Review  The U.S. Federal Trade Commission should investigate security practices at Home Depot following media reports that the hardware retailer’s payment systems have been breached, two U.S. senators said Tuesday. The breach raises questions about the retailer’s security measures, Senators Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, and Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, wrote in a letter to the FTC.  “Given the unprecedented scope and extended duration of Home Depot’s data beach, it appears that Home Depot may have failed to employ reasonable and appropriate security measures,” the senators wrote. “Furthermore, it is troubling that Home Depot has not yet been able to confirm that it has successfully shut down the data breach.” The FTC has investigated several data breaches in recent years, and in some cases, has required breached companies to implement new cybersecurity programs and submit to independent security audits. Editor's Note: Each step a retailer takes now after finding a breach is going to be examined and investigated. Are you ready and prepared in the event your retailer is breached? Are you involved in the process itself? Read the Senator's letter here. (Source cio.com)

The 'Today Show' covers new Visa Transaction Advisor solution - New Weapon to Fight Credit Card Fraud at the Gas Station  In a report on Tuesday, NBC’s “Today” reported on the latest efforts to prevent credit card fraud at the gas pump. The “Today” report cites Conexxus estimates that the industry lost at least $250 million to credit and debit card fraud last year. Visa recently announced that it has developed a solution — Visa Transaction Advisor (VTA) — to spot lost, stolen or counterfeit cards. VTA analyzes about 500 pieces of data, such as location, past transactions and whether the account has been involved in a data breach, to create a risk score from one to 99. It takes less than a millisecond after the card is swiped to do this. The gas station owners decide their risk tolerance, not Visa, and what score they want to trigger the alert that tells the customer to see the attendant. About 25,000 gas stations across the country, many of them Chevron, now use VTA. Shell is currently testing the program at many of its stations. (Source nacsonline.com)

Digital Wallets, Mobile Payments and Credit-Card Industries Step Up Security Efforts With New Technology Advancements To Stop Online Theft  NXT-ID, Inc., a biometric authentication company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announces the 30 second spots on CNBC for its next generation smart wallet, Wocket. The commercial tells consumers that Wocket "stores your credit cards, your loyalty cards, and your private information; so that only you can use them." With the rising concern over credit card security and the recent breeches with high profile brands like Home Depot, credit card issuers are accelerating efforts to tokenize transactions by using encryption technologies. Visa and MasterCard are promoting a new security standard called EMV which this encryption standard is based on. Apple is expected to continue its September tradition of the past few years by unveiling the iPhone 6 and a smart watch on Tuesday. The devices reportedly will add mobile payments to compete with companies like Amazon and Square that are using the new technology. Visa and MasterCard are both adopting a new technology called "tokenization" which, according to the Wall Street Journal, "replaces cardholder information such as account numbers and expiration dates with a unique series of numbers that validates the customer's identity." Last week, eBay's PayPal announced it has begun enabling consumers with the new Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone to pay at any retailer that accepts PayPal on its mobile commerce web site with just the swipe of a finger.

ORC Duo - Mother and son arrested for theft, but son jumps off bridge over Delaware River  A mother and son accused of theft were involved in a dramatic arrest Monday afternoon on the bridge over the Delaware River between Matamoras and Port Jervis. Eastern Pike Regional Police had been investigating a number of thefts from Wal-Mart in Westfall Township and were on the lookout for a red Honda Civic with New York plates that had been captured on video surveillance. The most recent theft involving that vehicle was Wednesday, when a lawn mower was taken from Wal-Mart. Police believe the stolen items were being sold at a local pawn shop. On Monday, the car was stopped on the bridge by two Eastern Pike Regional Police officers about 2 p.m. The driver, Carol Baran, 53, was taken into custody. Her son, Brian Baran, 20, was also being taken into custody when the routine arrest turned into an emergency. A police officer put handcuffs on Brian Baran, securing his hands behind his back. The officer was about to put him in the squad car but Baran broke away and jumped over a barrier that separates the bridge road deck from the sidewalk. He then hurled his body over the bridge railing and jumped into the Delaware River below. The river was fairly low in that area Monday and police Chief Chad Stewart said Baran was lucky he was not killed from the impact. With his wrists in handcuffs behind his back, Baran was struggling in the water. Police immediately called for a river rescue and ambulance. Baran floated downriver the equivalent of three city blocks before he came to shore at Avenue N and turned himself in to Police. (Source poconorecord.com)

After Innovative Optique Armed Robbery, fatal shooting in Delafield, WI — another high-end optical store targeted  The Innovative Optique store in Fox Point was robbed at gunpoint on August 14th. Police say a store employee exchanged gunfire with one of the suspects — fatally shooting him. The suspects targeted the store because it sells high-end eyeglass frames, and this crime of fashion seems to be growing in the Milwaukee area, and across the nation. Innovative Optique remains closed after the armed robbery and fatal shooting. The windows are covered in paper, and a sign says the building has been turned over to its landlord. This, as we’ve learned another optical store was targeted in a robbery just this week. (Source fox6now.com)

Safeway Loss prevention officer in Tucson hit with a stun gun; remains partially paralyzed  A loss prevention officer doing his job ends up partially paralyzed, unable to work, and on disability. The Pima County Sheriff's Robbery/Assault detectives tracked down the woman responsible for this living nightmare. It happened at the Safeway at Ina and Oracle on September 21, 2013. The Sheriff's department provided News4 Tucson Crime Trackers with surveillance video of the woman leaving the store. Detectives say she shoplifted two bottles of liquor worth about $60.00. Investigators say she put them in her purse and walked out of the store. Detectives later identified the woman as 39-year-old Lisa Wilder. The loss prevention employee chased after her. He asked her to hand over the stolen merchandise. The investigator Sharlene Reis said, "Wilder could've easily handed over the merchandise. But she didn't, she chose to take a weapon out and injure the loss prevention officer who was trying to do his job." (Source kvoa.com)

Counterfeit Crackdown Bill Heads to California Governor’s Desk
If AB 2681 is signed, it will enable the state to impose sales tax on those convicted of trafficking in counterfeit goods at the wholesale level. Under current law, suppliers of counterfeit goods are able to avoid paying sales tax, claiming their items are being sold to retailers who are then charged with collecting and paying taxes on sales to the BOE. This legislation will make convicted criminals at any level of the distribution chain liable for the sales tax. (Source lasentinel.net)

Getting advice from trusted friends, family members, co-workers and former bosses is always a great thing to do and, quite frankly, it can help you to see more clearly. But remember, at the end of the day it's your decision to make and it's your decision that you have to live with. Your friends, co-workers, and former bosses won't be living with the consequences, but your family will be. So you've got to be more sensitive to their advice. Advice is easy to give, hard to follow and almost impossible to live up to. And everyone has a lot of advice to give; it's the easiest thing to give. Just remember, at 5 a.m. after all the advice has been given, the mirror may be where the answer lies.
