The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

IT Security Subject Matter Expertise
Timely - On Target - An Absolute Must-Watch for Every LP executive

Given the unprecedented number of data breaches we're seeing, cybersecurity has undoubtedly become a hot-button issue for retailers - one that doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. This growing threat is forcing LP programs across the U.S. and beyond to rethink their relationship with IT security - and rightfully so. At our LPNN live broadcast from the NRF LP Show this past June, we sat down with Tom Litchford, VP, Retail Technologies for the NRF, for what turned out to be one of the most impactful and timely episodes of the entire show. Don't miss this week's LPNN interview with Tom Litchford - "Cyber Security's Increasing Impact on Retail & the Role of LP."

Home Depot Breach Officially Largest On Record - 56 Million Cards Impacted in 5-month attack - Malware Contained  Home Depot said Thursday that cyber criminals armed with custom-built malware stole an estimated 56 million debit and credit card numbers from its customers between April and September 2014. That disclosure officially makes the incident the largest retail card breach on record. Read Home Depot's full statement here. The "enhanced payment protection" Home Depot says its rolled out involves new payment security protection "that locks down payment data through enhanced encryption, which takes raw payment card information and scrambles it to make it unreadable and virtually useless to hackers." This data breach surpasses Target's last winter, which lasted only three weeks and exposed 40 million cards. (Source krebsonsecurity.com)

Sources say Self-Checkout Lanes were Main Target in Home Depot Breach

The malicious software that unknown thieves used to steal credit and debit card numbers in the data breach at Home Depot this year was installed mainly on payment systems in the self-checkout lanes at retail stores, according to sources close to the investigation. Sources now tell KrebsOnSecurity that in a conference call with financial institutions yesterday, officials at MasterCard shared several updates from the ongoing forensic investigation into the breach at the nationwide home improvement store chain. The card brand reportedly told banks that at this time it is believed that only self-checkout terminals were impacted in the breach, but stressed that the investigation is far from complete.

Dunkin' Donuts' largest franchise owner of 350 stores, installing remote monitoring  Soon, Mark Cafua, the owner says, they'll have technology allowing staff to zoom in the security cameras at any one of their shops. Sixty percent of sales at Cafua's stores are cash, a setup ripe for employee theft. Cafua doesn't accept that as a cost of doing business. Among the data points that his accounting department pores over is the number of no-sales rung up on the registers, a signal that the counter help may be reaching into the cash drawer for reasons unrelated to a sale. Also available are algorithms that identify troubling patterns, such as employees who ring up lots of single-munchkin purchases, which can be cross-checked against surveillance camera footage to see if the customer is actually buying - and being charged for - a dozen and the staff is pocketing the difference. "This is a pennies business, so we take theft very seriously," Cafua says. (Source bostonglobe.com)

Increasingly - Ethics & Compliance function reports to CEO & Board - Legal losing its grip on it  18% of the people responsible for compliance report to the general counsel, with 38% reporting to the chief executive and 19% to the board. PwC found the percentage of chief compliance officers reporting to the general counsel fell to 25% in 2013 from 35% in 2012 and 41% in 2011. Some governance and compliance experts argue that putting a chief compliance officer under a company's general counsel lowers the stature and influence of the role, while a general counsel has many other duties and may not devote enough time to compliance if given control of that function. The SCCE survey also found 67% of respondents said their organization doesn't have a third-party supplier code of conduct. The survey found 95% of respondents said their organizations offer a system for employees to anonymously report wrongdoing, and 65% make that system available to their third-party vendors and agents. It also found half the organizations have provided training to their board members on their code of ethics in the last two years. (Source wsj.com)

DOJ Official Tells Companies to Turn Over Evidence on Employees
Merely conducting an internal investigation isn't enough for a company to receive full cooperation credit. Voluntary disclosure to the Justice Department of an internal investigation isn't "true cooperation" under its corporate prosecution principles if the company avoids identifying who is responsible for the alleged misconduct. Even identifying culpable individuals isn't enough if the company fails to locate and provide evidence implicating them, he said. A true cooperator - whether a mobster or a company - must forthrightly provide all the available facts and evidence so that the most culpable individuals can be prosecuted. Mr. Miller spent much of his speech expounding on what he called an "often overlooked" part of the so-called Filip Factors that would lead to the Justice Department declining to prosecute a company. "If you want full cooperation credit, make your extensive efforts to secure evidence of individual culpability the first thing you talk about when you walk in the door to make your presentation."

SEC Warns To Take Whistleblowers Seriously
Officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission had some advice for the compliance professionals attending the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics conference in Chicago this week: treat your whistleblowers with respect and take their claims seriously if you don't want them coming to the government. The overwhelming majority of whistleblowers who come to the SEC say they first went to their companies but were dismissed or had their allegations ignored.

RILA adds two execs to compliance leadership team

Apple will no longer unlock iPhones, iPads for police - even with search warrants  Apple said Wednesday night that it is making it impossible for the company to turn over data from most iPhones or iPads to police - even when they have a search warrant - taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user information. Rather than comply with binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that prevents the company - or anyone but the device's owner - from gaining access to the vast troves of user data typically stored on smartphones or tablet computers.

Gucci, Tiffany dealt blow in fake goods case against China banks
Luxury goods retailers Gucci and Tiffany failed to persuade a U.S. appeals court to require major Chinese banks to freeze the assets of alleged counterfeiters in a pair of cases that have drawn the attention of U.S. and Chinese regulators. In the current litigation, Tiffany & Co and several subsidiaries of French conglomerate Kering SA, including Gucci Group, Bottega Veneta and Yves Saint Laurent, filed lawsuits in New York several years ago against numerous Chinese entities, claiming they sold counterfeit goods online. The companies asserted the counterfeiters kept their profits in accounts at state-controlled Bank of China Ltd, China Merchants Bank Co Ltd and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd. The Supreme Court have held that foreign corporations cannot be sued in the United States unless they have substantial business there. Owning a U.S. subsidiary is not enough on its own.

Retailers will carry counterfeits as long as quality is high enough, says new research on supply chain practices  Brand owners often cite a lack of data about the way counterfeits penetrate the supply chain as a barrier to tackling the problem, but researchers in China are developing mathematical models to help them understand how the illicit market functions. Their research focuses not on non-deceptive counterfeits - such as a $20 Louis Vuitton bag that the purchaser clearly knows is not genuine - but rather fakes which are deceptively packaged and sold as authentic brand name products via the brand owner's supply chain. Among the findings of the modeling exercise was that deceptive counterfeits lower the price and the sales of authentic products, and general retailers will carry counterfeits as long as the quality is high enough. A key finding in the modeling exercise was that while brand name companies faced with deceptive counterfeiting may be tempted to try to control the problem by only selling through a restricted distribution channel such as manufacture-owned stores or certified retailers, this may not always be the best strategy in terms of preserving profitability.

Fraud Costs and Digital Currency Acceptance On The Rise Concurrently
Payment-card fraud keeps rising — and the costs are rising even faster according to the recently released 2014 LexisNexis True Cost of Fraud study, eCommerceBytes reported. The LexisNexis study found that retailers lost 0.68 percent of their revenue to fraud in 2014, up from 0.51 percent in 2013. Fraud costs were even higher for mobile commerce, where every $100 in fraud cost m-commerce merchants $334. The study also reported that virtual currency acceptance is growing rapidly among international merchants: 11 percent now accept it, compared to only 1 percent of domestic-only merchants.

Canadian retailers bet on technology in fight with U.S. giants
Canadian retailers, scrambling to keep pace with the likes of Wal-Mart and Amazon.com in an increasingly crowded market, are investing heavily in high-tech tools to lure shoppers. Companies have ramped up their efforts to address consumers' evolving shopping habits and to compete with rivals such as Wal-Mart, which is pouring more than C$30 million ($27.4 million) into Canadian e-commerce projects this year. Canadian Tire Corp, Hudson's Bay Co and Metro Inc are among those making technology investments. The tools, which include data analytics, mobile apps and online stores, have long been used by U.S. retailers in their home market. Now, Canadian companies are recognizing them as essential. "There is now a real, 'Oh, my God, we have to play catch-up really fast,' because there's this threat of all these U.S. retailers increasing their dominance in the Canadian market," said Forrester Research analyst Peter Sheldon.

Judge clears way for $100 million class-action lawsuit against Sears Canada
An Ontario court judge has green-lit a class action lawsuit brought by some 250 current and former operators of Sears Hometown Stores, a network of independent owner-operators run by Sears Canada. The lawsuit seeks some C$100 million in damages and alleges that Sears Canada and its Chicago-based parent, Sears Roebuck & Co., breached not only provincial franchise laws but the plaintiffs' common law rights by making it virtually impossible to operate their stores at a profit. The suit alleges that Sears Canada earns high profit margins on sales of goods to Hometown store operators while simultaneously downloading a disproportionate share of the costs associated with retail and product handling onto the same independent retailers.

No Criminal Charges In Case Of Man Killed By Security Guard At Northland Mall Oakland County prosecutors say there won't be any criminal charges in connection with the death of a Ferndale man who was restrained and pepper-sprayed by security guards at Northland Mall in Southfield. Prosecutor Jessica Cooper admits that security staff at the 8 Mile Road shopping center made a lot of mistakes on the day that an agitated McKenzie Cochran turned up at a jewelry store, threatening to kill someone. The guards weren't trained, she said, in how to properly restrain a person; and their dispatch sent inaccurate directions to police, which delayed their arrival to the scene by 10 minutes. But, she said, these failings aren't criminal. "My job is to not charge when I can't prove," Cooper told reporters Thursday. "If I could prove it, I could charge it." When security guards approached the 24-year-old Cochran at LA Diamonds jewelry store on Jan. 28, 2014, and asked him to leave, he was reportedly "not cooperative." The guards then pepper-sprayed and placed Cochran in handcuffs. When police arrived on the scene, they found Cochran had a pulse but wasn't breathing. He was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after the confrontation began. (Source cbslocal.com)

Counterfeit Louis Vuitton Goods Worth $163M Are Seized in Southern China  Police in Guangzhou City of southern China's Guangdong Province uncovered a criminal group that manufactured counterfeit luxury purses recently, and seized what they said was over a billion yuan ($163 million) worth of Louis Vuitton items.

Another 11,000 counterfeit Louis Vuitton suitcases, 30 million fake labels, a number of fake sales receipts, and 27 different pieces of equipment needed to make the fake leather purses and handbags were also seized.

Man Sentenced to over 4 years in Federal prison for Cargo Theft Scheme
A truck driver was sentenced to four and a half years in federal prison on Thursday for a cargo theft scheme.

Sherley worked for Nu World Trucking, LLC, a company owned by his uncle, Earl Nunn. Nunn and Sherley drove semis without trailers, and went through truck stops and gas stations looking for trailers that were unattended. They would steal the trailers, and later sell of fence the items inside. On May 11, 2013, Nunn and Sherley stole a 2000 Wabash trailer from the Snappy Mart Truck Stop in West Plains. The trailer contained a load of Green Giant canned corn. Prosecutors believe Nunn and Sherley also committed thefts in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Don't fool yourself with getting lost in the email world and wondering why the morning flew by and nothing really got done. With the mere volume of emails we all receive each day, even with spam filters turned high, the shuffling and responding can eat your day away. The real issue is how we use emails to pass responsibilities and work off to other people or to express our hidden opinions after the boss is gone. My favorite happens to be the one who says - "Oh, I never got your email" - as if there's a parallel universe and I'm in the one that doesn't exist. Emails have changed our world. Don't let it change your performance.
