Marvin Ellison, a former LP executive, was hired as J.C. Penny's new CEO -
Direct from the CEO who hired him In an interview with Women's World
Daily retiring CEO Mike Ullman talked about J.C. Penney and why he hired Marvin
Ellison as his predecessor and gives some unique insights on why Marvin's been
so successful and what CEO's look for in executives. Interesting read for anyone
wanting to learn about what traits and characteristics CEO's look for and how
WWD: You were instrumental in recruiting Marvin Ellison from Home Depot
to be Penney's ceo. Why was he your choice?
M.U.: We kissed a lot of frogs but when Marvin sat down at the desk,
within five minutes, I said, "You're the guy." He said, "What do you mean?" I
said, "First of all, you care about the people, you explained to me in five
minutes what you did to turn around the [Home Depot] business with the people.
It was total common sense and it was exactly what we needed." One of the things
he said was that two-thirds of the people were in the back of the house and
one-third in front. So Marvin reversed it. Ninety percent of the people who come
into Home Depot are mad as hell. Something is broke. Sales associates when they
meet someone have to say, "What project are you working on today?" That's very
different from, "Hi. How are you? Can I help you?" Customers always say no to
that. If you ask what project you are working on today, it changes the attitude
of the associate and changes the attitude of the customer. There was also this
40-page report the store manager got every Monday morning. Marvin changed it to
three pages. He has done a lot of the same things for us. He's a common-sense
guy, but he is uberbright. He cares about people and he is a really good judge
The Challenges Of Identifying Potential Workplace Violence - No Such Thing As
Zero Risk Experts say official statistics underestimate violence in
the workplace, especially when it comes to nonlethal incidents. "The aggressor
gets terminated and the injured person gets treated under worker's comp and so
it doesn't necessarily get counted as violence in the workplace."
In recent years, more employers are posting workplace violence policies,
says Elizabeth Bille, associate general counsel for the Society for Human
Resource Management. She says they should enforce them
uniformly without giving first-time offenders a pass. At the same
time, Bille says, if an employee has a mental health problem, employers are
limited by federal law in their ability to discuss or share that information.
"I think one of the greatest challenges about identifying potential workplace
violence is trying to balance fairness to the employee to not overreact and
keeping their particular situations confidential, with the very real
concerns of co-workers who may start fearing for their safety," she says. "That
is really the crux of the challenge here."
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides safety guidelines
for industries in health care and retailing, where patients and customers
are most likely to perpetrate workplace violence. But, says Jordan Barab, the
deputy assistant secretary, there is no prevention handbook when it comes
to mass shootings.
"In most of those cases you don't have kind of the same recognized risk
factors; you don't have an ability in many cases for the employer to more
or less predict that this is going to happen," Barab says.
"The sad fact is, is with all of the security measures you take in place, we
could have fobs and bulletproof glass and fences and security guards. But
someone intent on mayhem is going to commit mayhem,
and all you can do is slow them down and help people get out of the way."
There's no such thing as zero risk.
One Foot Locker Exec. Awaiting Sentencing For Kickbacks - G3K Displays CEO &
Team Go To Federal Prison For $18M fraud - major supplier of displays for
retailers worldwide including Foot Locker, adidas, 7-Eleven Luxottica
A Manhattan federal judge on Wednesday sentenced two "lieutenants" who assisted
former G3 Displays CEO Steven Kaitz in facilitating an $18 million bank fraud
to 24 months and 21 months in prison, one day after sentencing Kaitz to 40
months in jail. Kaitz, the CEP, and the others pled guilty after being charged
with securing loans for the company using falsified purchase orders, invoices
and other documents that made G3 look more profitable than it was.
A fifth suspect, former Foot Locker Inc. In-store Marketing Director Kathleen
Smith, pled guilty to taking kickbacks in the scheme. She is scheduled to be
sentenced in October.
STEVEN KAITZ, the chief executive officer of G3K Displays, Inc., admitted that
he and others fraudulently inflated G3K's sales and accounts receivable to
secure millions of dollars in loans.
KAITZ was involved in the creation of fake email accounts purporting to belong
to fictitious employees of Footlocker and Adidas, G3K's two largest customers.
KAITZ and his co-defendants operated these fake email accounts themselves,
pretending to be employees of those customers, and then used those fake email
accounts to "verify" false information about G3K's financial condition,
including its sales and accounts receivable.

eBay assists retailer to shut down a $2 million theft ring
A Wilkins man was charged Tuesday with using drug addicts to operate a $2
million theft ring from his record store in Oakland. Following a seven-year
investigation, the Pennsylvania attorney general's office charged fifty-year-old
Anthony J. Cicero, owner of The Slipped Disc on Atwood Street in Oakland, with
theft, receiving stolen property and operating a corrupt organization. According
to a grand jury presentment, Cicero paid drug addicts to steal retail store
items, such as books and LEGO sets, that he resold on Amazon or Ebay. Cicero
stored the stolen goods in a back room in his shop near Pitt's campus. According
to investigators, Cicero's operation amassed more than $2 million since May 2013
and targeted Pittsburgh stores including Rite Aid, CVS, Giant Eagle Market
District, Staples and Wal-Mart. Cicero directed "boosters" to target specific
items including medical books, computer books, graphic novels, hardcover books
and LEGO products, according to the attorney general's investigation.
London Regional Fraud Team Arrests Online Auction Gang
On the morning of September 10, the London Regional Fraud Team (LRFT) arrested 7
suspects in North London. GAP GTI provided extensive investigation support to
the LRFT team during 2015. These suspects are part of a gang that has defrauded
UK victims of millions of pounds per year. Fake ads were posted on Gumtree,
Friday-Ads, eBay and other classified sites in the UK. Victims would receive
fake eBay- & PayPal-branded invoices instructing them to send funds to a bank
account. The arrested suspects were responsible for organizing mules and
providing false identities to open bank accounts. This gang is believed to be
responsible for a large portion of online auction fraud in the UK and GAP GTI
has been tracking this group for the past 4 years. GAP GTI analysis shows this
group posted over 2,500 ads on eBay.co.uk since 2013, with item value over $9.3

Omnichannel retail is no longer a prediction; it's a foregone conclusion & the
answer to it, is in the data Shoppers are demanding cross-channel
conveniences and retailers are gearing up and reorganizing to meet the
challenge. But, to put matters simply, the challenge is all in the data -
data such as purchase history, inventory status and product information that has
been managed independently by different departments and systems.
The benefits of a unified, omnichannel e-commerce platform are exemplified in
Walgreens' newly updated mobile app that now offers an extended array of
personalized and store-specific promotions to customers who shop via mobile and

experts mostly critical of proposed threat intelligence sharing bill
This fall, the Senate is expected to take another look at the Cybersecurity
Information Sharing Act, or CISA, but many security experts and privacy
advocates are opposed. Many security experts agree that it's important for
companies to share cybersecurity information, in real time, without risk of
being publicly embarrassed, fined, or sued.
"I understand the concern about individuals and organizations concerned about
privacy," said Jerry Irvine, CIO at Prescient Solutions. "But the bottom line is
that we can't protect ourselves without the ability to show actual technical
data to other organizations within our industry and agencies in the federal
Phishing simulator allows retailers to test cyber attack preparedness - "Let
Lucy Do It" Last year 250,000 unique phishing attacks caused $4.5
billion in losses, according to a report from the Anti-Phishing Working Group.
New malicious codes being created daily are the real threat, says Oliver
Muenchow, founder of phishing simulator LUCY. Those attacks, called advanced
persistent threats, represent the greatest risk to retailers because they're
constantly being perpetrated in new ways and exploiting holes in IT systems. Since
most anti-virus products filter out most of the known malware attacks, hackers
began phishing attacks and started to create their own custom malware," he
LUCY allows users to create their own phishing, malware and attack campaigns to
measure security and awareness. The system uses a simple web-based user
interface that includes pre-defined phony mail and web templates that can be
used to "lure" employees into clicking and entering information. By staging mock
attacks, retailers can test staff and security measures. "You can test the
users and how they would react if a phishing email comes," Muenchow says. "It
can help educate [employees] with an email notifying them they've just been
tested, then directing them to an educational video."
LUCY, which is free for retailers with up to 100 users, simulates cyber
attacks on a company's network or in the cloud through four main modules.
Various templates test staff on scenarios and awareness with dummy offers,
links, emails, surveys and promotions. "Hackers are kind of lazy," he says.
"They want the easiest way in. Identifying these [human vulnerabilities] can
significantly reduce the risks of hacking."
Global cyber insurance market to grow to over $20 billion by 2025 - Watch out
for the loop holes Cyber risk is a major and fast-increasing threat to
businesses with cyber-crime alone costing the global economy approximately $445
billion a year, with the world's largest 10 economies accounting for half this
total and the U.S. accounting for $108 billion, according to Allianz Global
Corporate & Specialty (AGCS).
"Growth in the U.S. is already underway as data protection regulations help
focus minds, while legislative developments and increasing levels of
liability will see growth accelerate in the rest of the world."
Previously, attention has largely been focused on the threat of corporate data
breaches and privacy concerns, but the new generation of cyber risk is more
complex: future threats will come from intellectual property theft, cyber
extortion and the impact of business interruption (BI) following a cyber-attack
or from operational or technical failure; a risk which is often underestimated.
Editor's Note: With this being a rather new offering we're now seeing a
number of firms trying to avoid coverage for a number of recent breaches
mostly due to the retailer's lack of setting, maintaining, or having reached
acceptable security standards. Which in and of itself is subject to
interpretation based on the third party subject matter experts being used to
analyze the retailers programs. As there is no proven legally defined gold

How to Defuse and Protect
Gary Johnson, VP of
Workplace violence is more than active shooter situations and flash mobs, but
any act or threat that jeopardizes an employee's personal safety. According to
research, some 2 million U.S. workers are victims of workplace violence each
year, and retailers are no different. With the ongoing threat of violent
criminals, hostile customers and disgruntled employees, learn from senior LP

why retailers should implement workplace violence programs, how they can

New Chip Cards May Actually Increase Credit Card Fraud, Hurt Merchants
Despite the attempts of banks and credit card manufacturers to decrease credit

credit cards will still be a honey pot to fraudsters at least until the end of

that may or may not solve today's credit card security problems, merchants and
consumers can use bitcoin via PayPal, BitPay or directly - a much more secure

E-retailers' holiday hurdles include inventory, delivery, shipping and service
Retailers should be aware that online holiday shoppers will be quick to click
away if they are disappointed with late deliveries and slow responses to their
questions, according to a report by eBay Enterprise and CFI Group. The Holiday
Outlook Report shows online shoppers want a variety of ordering and shipping
options, and that they won't be patient if a product is not available. Of 500
online shoppers surveyed 79% say they are likely to switch brands if the items
they want are out of stock, says CFI Group CEO Sheri Petras. Shoppers often will
abandon an entire purchase if one item they've placed in their shopping cart
comes up missing, the report says. How retailers handle shipping costs and late
deliveries is especially important during the holidays, the survey shows. Most
online shoppers-86%-consider whether it's worth paying a premium shipping price
to get quick delivery, the survey says.

happening again. On Thursday they had over an estimated $2,000 worth of goods in
two shopping carts, deputies said. They returned Friday after fleeing the day
before after one of the girls brandished a taser at loss prevention officers
causing them to back off. They had left the carts in the parking lot but took
the two bags with them before disappearing from sight. Apparently thinking they
had learned from their mistakes, they returned the next day with two of them
browsing through the store again with shopping bags and the other two
commandeering shopping carts. A motel room key was found on one of the teens.
The officers drove to the motel and checked out the room and found there were
adjoining rooms with the mother and her boyfriend living in one and the girls
