A Global Platform for Supply Chain Security & Loss Prevention Professionals
Dedicated to educating, developing and driving value to their members

The International Supply Chain Protection Organization has been extremely successful since its inception just one year ago, in their efforts to facilitate communications and bring together the Loss Prevention executives in this highly specialized group on a global scale. With launching their web site just 30 days ago this group has met with an overwhelming response from Supply Chain Loss Prevention executives worldwide. The Daily had the privilege to speak with Glenn Master, Co-founder and Chairman for this organization, about their efforts and about how they plan on supporting the industries they represent and the members they hope to help develop.

Launched in 2012, the ISCPO has been focused on building its core deliverables and establishing an organization that truly represents a group of executives that quite frankly has been un-recognized and under appreciated for decades. With the primary focus being on developing a global resource for these executives to be able access information, tools, and fellow executives that can help them improve their individual and corporate performance and impact, the group allows these executives the opportunity to network, grow, and seek the answers they need to solve the issues and problems we all face in our day to day professional lives.

Starting the group in LinkedIn at first, gave Glenn the opportunity to gauge the interest level and really be able to fine tune exactly what the group needed to accomplish and deliver in order to truly add value to this specific industry group and the individuals themselves. After the first three months they had over 300 fellow Loss Prevention executives coming together under the common goal of increasing the level of professionalism and impacting the companies they all work for. And now, after launching the web site last month, they've grown to over four hundred members representing twenty different countries.

With the launch of the group's website, they're expanding their abilities to impact the industries in which they serve all over the world. Launched August 6th the web site was designed as a means to create a global platform for them to be able to interact, share, and communicate about issues and trends that are changing their industry as fast as the retail industry is changing itself. With its secondary goal of delivering and facilitating educational offerings, the group plans on holding events and allowing for the publication of various industry whitepapers or postings in relation to certain industry topics on their web site.

Rod Fulenwider

Gunther Hoock

Bill Gavin, Chairman Retail committee; Director of Loss Prevention Supply Chain, BCB, Business Services, and Loss Prevention Business Intelligence for Office Depot Law Enforcement, Chairman position currently open

With an internal organizational structure reflecting the wide span of various industries, they formed six specific committees that can help deliver subject matter expertise to their membership based on the specific industry group they represent.

Glenn credits the early successes of this organization to being able to establish a network platform that allows these executives, who span across different business segments, all sharing a common goal, to come together in one group—a platform and group that has never been done before. In the past, supply chain executives who needed information or assistance with an issue outside of their specific four walls had to rely on the old technique of calling around and finding the resource. This process took time and quite often didn't produce the results needed to quickly resolve issues and move programs forward. However, with this new structure and platform making resources being easily accessible, they can offer subject matter expertise as fast as the click of the mouse.

The future of this organization seems almost ensured, as the executives who are steering it are proven leaders in their own specialties. With hopes of launching official membership and partnering globally with retail cargo theft task forces and law enforcement in the near future, the organization will then be in a position of being able to offer assistance in helping to solve more complex criminal cases as well. Going one step further Glenn also talked about how the organization has partnered with the Loss Prevention Foundation to promote the LPC and LPQ certifications, and how they would like to expand their formal educational opportunities for all supply chain Loss Prevention and Security executives.  Next year they also plan on holding their first two-day supply chain conference in September 2014 in Texas and will hopefully be releasing more information on that very soon.

This group has done an incredible job so far at bringing these executives together under the common goal of Leadership & Development and we at the Daily applaud their effort. If you're an LP or security executive in the supply chain field we strongly recommend you become a member, as all of us are only as strong as the group we are a member of, and this group has some of the industry's best.

Managed services and hosted video gaining ground, but slowly
Managed services and hosted video are building momentum, but some skepticism remains regarding the near-term prospects of the services, according to results from SSN’s October News Poll. Though the technology for managed services and hosted video has been available for a while, demand for the products is still emerging. Certain technical hurdles were also cited with respect to hosted video. “Until widespread high bandwidth is common, hosted video is limited to low resolution for more than a handful of cameras per site,” one reader said. “Highly compressed video does not offer much of a benefit to our customers if they need to pull video for evidence of an incident." a large portion of the market will ultimately gravitate toward the services for their improved functionality, flexibility and simplicity. “These platforms offer a continuously improving value proposition, potentially more robust operations, and reduction in personnel overhead needs and capital infrastructure,” that respondent said.

"Showrooming" - New study shows we should - "Dial back the panic a little bit" - "Don’t assume everybody is in that ‘exploiter’ category”  Among brick-and-mortar retailers, showrooming has become a dirtier word than shoplifting. Thievery, at least, is illegal— (AMZN) has every right to lure customers away even after they’ve visited the mall to browse merchandise. Only about 6 percent of people using a smartphone while in a store at any given time are planning to take their commerce to the Internet, according to a study to be released later today by Columbia Business School. And only about half of them are using their phones to price-check. Most smartphone-equipped shoppers are simply looking for reviews or online coupons, often from the website of the store they’re in.

"They deliver really, really well against three competitive sets: against dollar stores, because they carry fresh food, pharmacy and gas and have a pricing advantage; against drug stores, because of a significant price advantage, plus fresh food and gasoline; and against small grocery stores, because they have a competitive price advantage."

UK riots: insurers win legal battle for police costs over Sony's Enfield warehouse - Police funds to pay for damages caused by riots  Legislation governing police says compensation for damage by riot should be paid out of police funds. Insurers have won a high court battle with police bosses and the London mayor, Boris Johnson, after a warehouse was destroyed and looted during the summer riots of 2011. A judge ruled that insurers were claiming for losses that arose out of damage caused by "persons riotously and tumultuously assembled". Insurers claimed that damage caused to a Sony warehouse in Enfield, north London, in August 2011 fell into that category. Lawyers representing Johnson – whose office funds the Metropolitan police – disagreed, arguing that the incident "did not constitute a riotous and tumultuous assembly". Mr Justice Flaux ruled in favour of insurers after analysing evidence at a high court hearing in London in July. (Source

"Touch ID" Fingerprint sensor in iPhone 5S is no silver bullet, researchers say
Fingerprint technology is not a high-security feature. That's why most military installations, for example, use hand geometry or retina scanners instead. Its effectiveness will depend on the strength of the implementation and whether it's used in conjunction with other security credentials, researchers said. "It is possible to copy a fingerprint and I think that as the technology sees wider usage, the techniques of copying fingerprints will only improve." Overall, the sensor has the potential to increase the security of the device, but it depends on implementation and whether consumers will actually use it. (Source

ORC in University of North Carolina's book stores
Powell said Student Stores has surveillance footage of three unknown men with backpacks entering the store separately. "They come in, look for the most expensive books that are the easiest to get without a lot of people seeing,” he said. He said the suspects, who he described as professional shoplifters, were able to steal the textbooks by removing the loss prevention tag. Powell said he thinks they made at least two or three successful shoplifting attempts. Because a PID is required to sell textbooks back to the bookstore, Powell said the suspects made up a story to solicit sympathetic students on Stadium Drive to sell the stolen textbooks after unsuccessfully attempting to do so themselves. There might be more incidents related to the investigation. (Source

Axis Announces New Video Encoders for Cost-Effective
Migration to IP Video

Two 16-channel, single-port encoders offer small to medium-sized installations a high-quality, flexible and cost-effective solution starting at $81 per channel

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – September 12, 2013 Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, today announces two cost-effective additions to its line of video encoders that have been developed to meet the needs of small- to medium-sized surveillance installations. Offering full frame rate video, AXIS M7016 Video Encoder provides an attractive, cost-effective and easy entry to network video, while the flexible AXIS P7216 Video Encoder adds audio and I/O ports and is equipped with a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) slot for use with fiber optics.

“With tens of millions of analog cameras still in operation around the world, video encoders allow these end-customers to leverage existing investments while providing a scalable solution to network video – now at a more cost-effective price starting at $81 per channel,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “We continue to invest R&D into video encoder technology to increase performance and lower cost so that analog CCTV users can migrate at their own pace and still benefit from the advantages of IP video. These two new encoders in particular address the needs of small- to mid-sized applications where cost and scalability are often barriers to going fully IP, like in many retail environments.”

Unlike many encoder solutions that require four network ports per 16-channel unit, AXIS M7016 and AXIS P7216 Video Encoders utilize one single network port, which helps drive down overall cost and port density of the surveillance system infrastructure. Both AXIS M7016 and AXIS P7216 come with a power supply, offer simultaneous H.264 and Motion JPEG streams and include four micro SD-card slots supporting up to 64 GB (cards not included).

Additionally, AXIS P7216 features a separate Ethernet service port to allow direct connection for maintenance and configuration, while its SFP slot offers network redundancy by automatically switching traffic over to the Ethernet port if the SFP module fails.

The video encoders join a product portfolio that has expanded to include solutions for systems of all sizes. The recently announced AXIS Q7436 Video Encoder Blade and complementary AXIS Q7920 Video Encoder Chassis create a high-performance solution for large-scale, mission-critical applications. Axis also recently claimed the number one spot globally in the video encoder category for 2012 according to a report from information and analytics firm IHS.

AXIS M7016 and AXIS P7216 are supported by AXIS Camera Station video management software as well as the industry’s largest base of application software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) program. Furthermore the video encoders support AXIS Camera Companion, Hosted Video and ONVIF for easy system integration.

The new 16-channel encoders are planned to be available to order in Q4 2013 through Axis’ standard distribution channels at the suggested retail prices of $1299 for AXIS M7016 ($81 per channel) and $1599 for AXIS P7216 ($100 per channel). Affordable surveillance kits including the encoders and 16 licenses of AXIS Camera Station will also be made available for $1499 and $1799, respectively.

Your self-evaluation is probably the most important document you'll write all year and it requires a degree of self-reflection and openness that, if done correctly, thoroughly, realistically and written well, will in actuality garner more respect than virtually anything else you can do. However, it's also a double-edged sword that mandates your adherence and constant effort to reach your written objectives and goals. The problem is that while most are rather open about their areas of improvement, very few actually quantify what they are going to do to improve and set specific goals that are realistically obtainable. The first step may be in just approaching and completing the reviews of your direct reports first and doing them with the same intensity and focus as you do yours. This step gets you in the game so to speak and allows you to tie yours into your team's and also may just give you some feedback you need to hear.

Just a Thought,
