Florida Malls and Retailers Opening After Hurricane Irma
Stores assess damages and prepare to reopen

In a sign that Florida is regaining a semblance of normalcy in the wake of Hurricane Irma, curfews on Tuesday were lifted in Miami-Dade County.

Irma's negative impacts on retail were estimated by Planalytics to be $2.8 billion. Hurricane Irma's impact on the economy is still being calculated.

Hurricane Harvey's impact continues to grow, according to Ball State University economist Michael Hicks, who estimated Harvey's impact to the economy at $198 billion, with homes and businesses still under water.

Following widespread outages from Irma, with about 6.6 million homes losing power due to sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour, and storm surges of up to 20 feet in parts of the state, Miami on Tuesday was cleaning up, assessing the damage and getting ready to open for business. wwd.com

Hurricane Price Gouging Is Despicable, Right?  Not to Some Economists
When a devastating hurricane like Irma or Harvey arrives, stories about price gouging inevitably spread quickly. Last week, a one-way coach flight from Miami to Phoenix jumped in price from $547.50 to $3,258.50, prompting immediate outrage. In Houston, a picture of a case of water being sold for $42.96 at Best Buy did the same. (Best Buy apologized and said it was a "big mistake" by a few employees.)

Over all, more than 8,000 complaints of price gouging on items like gas, food and ice were lodged with the Florida attorney general's office through the weekend.

On its face, the very idea of price gouging, especially during a natural disaster, feels outrageous. Indeed, 34 states have anti-gouging laws meant to protect consumers.

However, in a small slice of the world of economists and businesses, there is a fascinating debate about the topic - with many arguing that price gouging is actually a good thing nytimes.com

Bank Fraud Charges Against Jewelry Store Owner Dismissed
A Massachusetts federal judge on Monday threw out the government's criminal case against a luxury jewelry store owner charged with falsifying inventory entries to receive additional financing, saying the government didn't try hard enough to make a timely arrest.

Like the initial indictment, which was tossed in July, the superseding indictment violates the Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial for Raman Handa, CEO of jewelry retailer Alpha Omega, U.S. District Judge Rya W. Zobel said. The court tossed the original indictment after determining a six-year delay between charging Handa and his February arrest was due to the government's negligence, and determined a new bank fraud count doesn't cure the superseding indictment of "the same constitutional defects."

Handa was charged in 2011 with 12 counts of wire fraud for allegedly participating in a 2007 scheme to overstate the value of Alpha Omega's inventory in an effort to increase the amount it could borrow from subsidiaries of Bank of America N.A. and LaSalle Bank Midwest N.A. law360.com

iPhone X's Face ID raises security and privacy questions
The new top-of-the-range iPhone does away with the home button and its built-in fingerprint reader in favor of a new biometric - called Face ID - which uses a 3D scan of the user's face for authenticating and unlocking their device. It also replaces Touch ID for Apple Pay too.

Apple suggests this is an advancement over a fingerprint reader because it's an easier and more natural action for the user to perform - you just look at the phone and it unlocks; no need to worry if you have wet fingers and so on. Apple is working the convenience angle hard.

However offering to gate the smorgasbord of personal content that lives on a smartphone behind a face biometric inevitably raises lots of security questions. techcrunch.com

Apple's New FaceID Will Make It Easier For Police To Access Criminals' iPhone X
While in one way FaceID is more secure than the company's TouchID, which uses your fingerprint to open your phone, it's also more insecure. The chance of someone else's fingerprint unlocking your phone, Apple says, is less than one in 50,000, but the chance of someone else's face unlocking your phone is less than one in 1,000,000. However, touching your fingerprint to your phone is a voluntary act that is easy to not do unless physically forced.

Of course, Apple has built technology into FaceID -- which also enables purchases and can eliminate the need for passwords -- to make this challenging. FaceID will not unlock your phone unless your eyes are open, for instance. Averting your face will also block the technology. This means that you'll be able to try to resist unlocking your phone.

However, a persistent law enforcement agent who holds your iPhone X in your face for an extended period of time, or who surprises you with it, is likely to be able to catch an unguarded moment and be able to unlock your phone.

That could be a good thing or could be a bad thing, depending on where you sit on the personal privacy versus public safety debate. forbes.com

Agilence Receives Enterprise-Ready Rating from the Skyhigh CloudTrust Program

Agilence customers benefit from exceptional customer support and data analytics platform with top ranking security capabilities

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ - September 13, 2017 - Agilence, Inc., the leader in cloud-based data analytics for store operations and loss prevention, today announced that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust rating of enterprise-ready for its data analytics platform. This Enterprise-Ready rating meets the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.

"Agilence is thrilled to be awarded the prestigious Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready rating," said Jeff Freedman, Vice President of Technology for Agilence. "It's great to see third-party recognition of our application, infrastructure-level security controls, and stringent internal processes. We've always been committed to providing world-class security to our customers, and this Skyhigh CloudTrust rating is a testament to that."

Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). The evaluation spans five categories:

  ● Data attributes
  ● User and device attributes
  ● Service attributes
  ● Business attributes
  ● Legal attributes

"Companies seek enterprise-ready solutions such as Agilence, but vetting the capabilities and policies of a provider consumes a great deal of time and resources," said Kamal Shah, Vice President of Products and Marketing at Skyhigh Networks. "The Skyhigh CloudTrust Rating shortens the evaluation process from weeks to hours by offering an objective, holistic assessment of a service provider's security capabilities and enterprise readiness."



 





Retailers Cite Equifax as Need for Uniform Data Breach Law
The National Retail Federation and other industry associations are telling Congress that any new federal law on data breach notification should apply to all industries that handle consumer data, citing the recent breach at the Equifax credit reporting agency.

"The fact is that hackers do not discriminate as to the type of business they attack," NRF and the other groups said in a letter to House and Senate leadership of both parties. "Every industry sector - whether consumer-facing or business-to-business - faces data security threats that may put consumer data at risk."

"To protect customers and ensure effective public policy, Congress should ensure that any federal breach notification law applies to all affected sectors and leaves no holes in our system for some industries that criminals can exploit," the letter said.

The letter was signed by NRF, NRF's National Council of Chain Restaurants, and associations representing convenience stores, truck stops, gasoline stations, grocers, real estate agents, franchises and the travel industry. nrf.com

Background Checks Compromised by Massive Equifax Breach
Over Half of Americans' Records Are in Criminal Databases

Yes, there will be some tax and banking fraud as a result of the gargantuan data breach at Equifax. The biggest impact, however, will be felt by enterprises that rely on credit reporting bureaus to verify the identity of people they are doing business with.

Think employment verification, social services verification, and other forms of identity verification that rely on credit reports. These services depend on the idea that only the individual knows all the details used to verify identity, but that assumption requires ignoring the sheer amount of personally identifiable information (PII) that has been exposed over the past few years. Among the Office of Personnel Management, Anthem, and scores of other data breaches at universities, retailers, enterprises, and healthcare organizations over the last two years, a lot of PII is available for criminals to use.

If criminals have all the information they need to pass identity verification checks, what good is this authentication system?

Security and fraud experts like Gartner analyst Avivah Litan have been warning organizations to stop relying on static personal data for identity verification in favor of dynamic identity data for a while now. For example, Threatmetrix uses crowdsourcing and machine learning to establish the user's identity based on the user's dynamic behavior and attributes.

"Based on conversations with Gartner clients, including tax authorities, my estimate is that over half of Americans have already had their identities compromised before this latest hack, and their records are already resident in criminal databases," Litan said. csoonline.com

Canada's online retailers are growing faster than you think
Sales up more than 40% in 2017

Web sales by Canadian retailers are on pace to grow 42% in 2017, Internet Retailer estimates, based on figures released by Statistics Canada for the January-May period. That's a rate three times greater than the e-retail sales growth rate in Canada when factoring in all online retailers active in the market, regardless of where they are headquartered. Nine of the 10 largest online retailers active in Canada are based in the United States, led by Amazon.com Inc., No. 1 in the Internet Retailer 2017 Top 500.

While web sales in Canada are projected to continue growing overall, U.S. retailers and others will see their share of the Canadian market shrink. In the newly published research report, "The Canada 100," Internet Retailer estimates Canadian consumers this year will spend 43.9% of their digital dollars with online retailers based in Canada, up from 35.2% in 2016.

The shift among Canadian consumers to shop more with e-retailers based in Canada is reflected in growth many online retailers ranked in the Canada 100 say they are experiencing. digitalcommerce360.com

No Retail Crisis for Dollarama as Sales Soar
Growing Faster Than U.S. Dollar-Store Chains

Canada's largest dollar-store chain posted earnings that topped analysts' estimates last quarter and raised its gross-margin forecast for the year. While the Montreal-based company added 17 net new locations, part of the boost came from a 6.1 percent increase in comparable-store sales.

Dollarama is growing faster than U.S. dollar-store chains, helped by a Canadian market that's less saturated than its southern neighbor and an longstanding policy to stay away from fresh food. bloomberg.com

Edmonton, AB: Police shoot and kill suspect in McDonald's parking lot
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) is investigating the death of a man who was shot and killed in an altercation with police at the Westmount Shopping Centre on Saturday night. Edmonton police attempted to arrest a 29-year-old man wanted on outstanding warrants in the parking lot.

The man, trying to leave the scene, hit a police vehicle while officers attempted to box the suspect vehicle in. Shortly after, a confrontation took place between the man and police and the officers fired their weapons, killing the man, the news release said.

The McDonald's parking lot was cordoned off, as were the southbound lanes of Groat Road north of 111th Avenue. Police were at the scene Sunday morning, with vehicles still taped off while they continue to investigate. cbc.ca

Montreal, QC: Jury in store clerk murder trial shown chilling photos of crime scene
The jury at the first-degree murder trial of Randy Tshilumba, the 21-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing a grocery store clerk in front of horrified customers, was shown chilling photos of the crime scene Monday.

Clemence Beaulieu-Patry, 20, was killed while working in the clothing department of the Maxi store on Papineau Avenue at Cremazie Boulevard in Montreal's Saint-Michel district on April 10, 2016.

In some of those photos, Beaulieu-Patry's body, draped in a red and yellow blanket, can be seen on the floor of the store. Other photos show children's clothing displays in the area specked with what appear to be drops of blood. There also appeared to be bloody hand prints on some store shelves, cash registers and door frames.  cbc.ca

To sell or not to sell: vendors are wary of online reputations, study suggests
A new study of online retailers using a major e-commerce website as a third party platform suggests they place little trust in consumers' transaction histories.

The study, "To Sell or not to Sell" published in Information Systems Journal and based on a survey of 443 sellers on the Chinese cross border website DHgate.com, challenges the view that information asymmetry in online transactions generally favours sellers.

The authors, from four universities, (King's College, London, Hohai Business School, Kent State and Alabama universities), quote previous studies showing that online buyers tend to trust sellers on the basis of feedback mechanisms provided by third party platforms (and other factors) whereas sellers are less trusting of these sources.

Sellers' lack of trust is put down to the fact that they often experience chargebacks with customers whose online reputations appeared to be sound.

The implications of this and their other findings, the researchers suggest, is that the current regulatory framework for e-commerce in most jurisdictions is unfair to sellers.

Commenting on the results, one of the co-authors, Professor Stuart Barnes of Kings' Business School said:

"With vast numbers of small and medium enterprises selling products and services online to buyers all over the world, chargeback fraud has become a massive problem in global e-commerce. Billions of dollars are lost every year, yet existing research has focused on the notion that buyers are subject to opportunistic sellers." retailrisk.com

Port Orange, FL: Smash & Grab Hurricane Burglary suspect charged in $145,000 theft from Sunglass World
Harold Hall, 34, was charged with burglary, grand theft over $100,000, possession of burglary tools, resisting without violence and criminal mischief with enhanced penalties due to a state of emergency. Hall was seen in The Pavilion store through a security system. A store manager saw Hall breaking glass cases while inside the Sunglass World with a hammer and looting the business just after midnight Sunday. The business owner then called 9-1-1. "Despite Hurricane Irma's effect being felt in Port Orange, police responded to the crime in progress," said Port Orange police. Police arrived to find the front glass door smashed in and heard Hall breaking glass cases inside the store. A police dog was then brought and orders given to Hall but he took off running, getting out through a back door but was caught by officers after a brief foot chase. Police found a hammer, a flashlight and several duffel bags that contained about $145,000 worth of sunglasses. news-journalonline.com
