Walmart partners with Texas State active shooter awareness program  Focusing on safety, the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) at Texas State has announced an unprecedented partnership. Walmart, the world's largest retailer in revenue, is working with ALERRT for new training material for more than one million employees. It will teach them how to deal with workplace violence. ALERRT's active shooter training program is well known. Now, the Avoid Deny Defend program will teach Walmart employees.

Home Depot's former IT Senior Security Architect had history of techno-sabotage - Now serving 4 year federal sentence  When Home Depot suffered a breach of transaction data that exposed as many as 52 million credit card transactions earlier this year, the company reportedly suffered from lax computer and network security measures for years. Apparently, the company wasn't helped much by its selection of a security architect either. Ricky Joe Mitchell was hired by Home Depot in 2012, and in March of 2013, he was promoted to the position of Senior Architect for IT Security at Home Depot, in charge of the entire company's security architecture. In May of 2014, Mitchell was convicted of sabotaging the network of his former employer. Now serving four-year federal sentence, Ricky Joe Mitchell spread viruses as a teen. When Mitchell learned he was going to be fired in June of 2012 from the oil and gas company EnerVest Operating, he "remotely accessed EnerVest's computer systems and reset the company's network servers to factory settings, essentially eliminating access to all the company's data and applications for its eastern United States operations," a Department of Justice spokesperson wrote in a release on his conviction. "Before his access to EnerVest's offices could be terminated, Mitchell entered the office after business hours, disconnected critical pieces of...network equipment, and disabled the equipment's cooling system." As a result of his actions, the company permanently lost some of its data and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars repairing equipment and recovering historical data. It took a month to bring the company's office back online, costing the company as much as $1 million in lost business. And that wasn't the first time he used technology for revenge. Mitchell's previous legal troubles resulting from malicious use of his technical skills dates back to when he was a high school junior. Former Home Depot employees told the The New York Times they were not surprised by the hack. When they requested additional security training and equipment, managers denied the request with the explanation, "We sell hammers." (Source arstechnica.com)

Home Depot has finally started to email customers to inform them of a major security breach  Home Depot told Mashable that the emails "started going out on Friday as part of the standard notification process," but that they are being sent out "in batches to ensure they flow smoothly." Which explains why some customers only received it on Sunday. (Source mashable.com)

Florida A Hub Of Growing Counterfeit Credit Card Scams - Data Breaches #1 Cause  The hottest scam in Florida, growing across the state and spreading nationwide, is the mass production of counterfeit credit cards embedded with account numbers of unwitting consumers, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Always looking for new ventures, some of the same rings of Florida identity thieves long engaged in other forms of fraud are making hundreds of fake cards and taking them on the road to withdraw cash or buy goods, police say. Counterfeit cards are not new, but their use has exploded during the past two years as computer hackers steal millions of records from major retail stores and rings of thieves develop new ways to skim information from ATMs and credit-card swiping machines.

DNA technology on packaging targets counterfeits - Hundreds of millions of folding cartons marked with security tape  Hundreds of millions of folding cartons from DISC marked with ADNAS SigNature DNA exemplify industry partnerships in combating counterfeiting of products in markets where authentication is crucial. John Rebecchi, DISC svp for marketing, comments, "We have marked hundreds of millions of folding cartons with SigNature DNA to support our customers' fight against counterfeiting their products. We serve markets such as cosmetic, fragrance and pharmaceutical manufacturing in which authentication is extremely important. SigNature DNA is one of the only products that can provide irrefutable evidence of authenticity and has led to prosecutions around the world." (Source packagingdigest.com)

Tripadvisor site coughs to card data breach for a potential 800k users
TripAdvisor has suffered a data breach at its Viator tour-booking and review website. An estimated 1.4 million Viator customers are potentially affected by the compromise, which the firm admits may have exposed payment card data. The compromise also potentially aired the email address, password and Viator "nickname" associated with accounts. Viator only became aware of the breach after investigators looking into incidents of credit card fraud made the link that victims were also users of its site. Viator has called in security experts to find out the extent of the breach. In the meantime it has begun notifying customers about the security problem, as a statement by the travel outfit explains.

Sears Canada auction fails to attract acceptable bids - "Looks like a bust" & was key reason for last week's $400M loan from Chairman  An auction of a majority stake in the Canadian retailer failed to attract any acceptable bids in its latest round, eliminating a potential near-term cash infusion for Sears Holdings that could have exceeded $750 million, The Post has learned. Indeed, a flopped auction of the 62-year-old Canadian chain early this month was a key reason that the corporate parent of Sears and Kmart was forced last week to take out a $400 million loan as it prepares for the crucial holiday season, sources said. "Things have not turned out like Eddie hoped, and now he's getting desperate," said Mark Cohen, a professor at Columbia Business School who was Sears Canada boss before Lampert took control. Sears burned nearly $1 billion in cash during the first half of the year, leaving it with just $863 million on its balance sheet for the Christmas season. "This is a late-stage death spiral for both Sears and Sears Canada," Cohen said. (Source nypost.com)

The Struggle to Make the Checkout Lane Safer
Physical, in-store credit card fraud is a completely different beast than a data breach. While debacles like the Home Depot breach mostly come down to technology, in-store fraud relies heavily on a much more fickle aspect of security: people. (Source credit.com)

Synthetic identity theft causing big headaches- Harder to solve and find than traditional identity theft  It's called "synthetic identity theft." It occurs when thieves create new identities by combining real and fake identifying information, and then using that identity to open new accounts. What sets synthetic identity theft apart is that "it's using pieces of many different puzzles in order to come up with the identity the thief uses." This is where they'll take your Social Security number, my name and address, someone else's birthday and they will combine them into the equivalent of a bionic person," he said. Synthetic identity theft is harder to unravel than traditional identity theft, experts said. "It's tougher than even the toughest identity theft cases to deal with because they can't necessarily peg it to any one person," Levin said. In fact, the fraud may not be discovered until an account goes to collections and a collection agency researches the Social Security number, he said.  (Source buffalonews.com)

Apple Pay - and other encrypted NFC payment systems - dramatically reduces ROI for cyberthieves, could prevent data breaches  Apple's newly introduced Apple Pay does something that turns the security conundrum upside down. Using near-field communication, it allows consumers to purchase products in-store with just a tap of their finger on the iPhone's new biometric scanner. The payment data is not stored on Apple servers or held by the retailer. When retailers are no longer in possession of payment data, they cease being the target. When enough payments are made this way, so that card data stored is on personal devices and not conglomerated on big enterprise server systems, ROI goes out the window for cyberthieves. They need to access huge numbers of cards, ideally tens of millions or better. That's because cards age out quickly, and once a breach is discovered, that aging-out is greatly accelerated. Apple Pay allows retailers to offload security concerns to the consumer (rather than holding a treasure trove of credit card numbers and names). Also, the "no card present" fees that Apple negotiated are way lower than standard retailers were able to get from financial institutions. This really moves the needle for retailers by reducing a major hard cost. (Source computerworld.com) (Source paymentssource.com)

Privacy lawyer says many Canadian companies are willing to 'roll the dice' on data breaches  A privacy lawyer at one of the Canada's biggest law firms, says 70 percent of her clients aren't willing to prepare for a loss of sensitive data. "In the early days of privacy legislation I had only one type of client, who said 'Ah, I'll deal with it (a data loss) when it happens,'" Kirsten Thompson, a member of the national technology group at McCarthy Tetrault told a Retail Council of Canada LP Conference in Toronto. "Now 70 percent are still 'I'll deal with it when it happens,' but 30 percent of my clients are 'it's going to happen, I'll deal with it now.'" (Source itworldcanada.com)

Research reveals growing concern about fraud threat to multichannel and online retailers - With Goods Lost in Transit & Returns Fraud Up over last two years A new Transactis-Retail Knowledge survey of leading loss prevention professionals shows that 88% see retailers placing a greater focus on fraudulent goods lost in transit (GLIT) claims than they were two years ago, and the same proportion view returns fraud as a similar or greater risk. The research also indicates that lost deliveries and returns fraud is no isolated problem: 81% of the experts surveyed see a correlation between GLIT and other types of loss, while 94% see a link between any opportunist fraud and other types of fraudulent activity. The survey, carried out by consumer insight and data analysis firm Transactis at a recent Retail Fraud Conference organised by Retail Knowledge, shows that the vast majority of loss prevention professionals also support the idea that sharing data is critical to thwarting this type of first-party fraud: more than 90% believe data from other retailers about losses due to opportunist fraud would be valuable to those seeking to prevent all types of fraud against their own organisation.

2 year old ORC case now reaches beyond 130 suspects - Ongoing Crime with more indictments likely -  Multiple 'organized retail theft' suspects appear in court in Louisville, Ky.  Nearly two years later, the list of suspects charged in a Jefferson County syndication ring has topped 130. Monday, a handful of defendants, recently indicted, appeared in court for their arraignments. They stole merchandise from a number of retail stores to feed their heroin addiction. "For whatever reason, I've drawn way more than this court's share of these types of cases. They are particularly frustrating because they seemingly never end," Judge Mitch Perry said. The indictments returned this week join twenty-four others, in Jefferson County, which list 130 people as participating in this theft scheme. The investigation began back in the fall of 2012 for what police called an organized retail theft. They commit the crimes in groups and stole items from retail stores around Louisville like Home Depot and Lowes, Target and Wal-Mart. They then returned the items for gift cards, and sold the gift cards to pawn shops. Prosecutors believe heroin addiction was the driving force behind the whole operation. Dozens of those 130 defendants previously indicted have pleaded guilty and are under supervision with conditions of drug treatment for their heroin addictions. However, prosecutors say this crime is still happening today and more indictments are likely. (Source whas11.com)

Quebec ORC trio busted using counterfeit credit cards and storing merchandise in Niagara Falls storage unit  Halton Regional Police on Sept. 17 and members of its Burlington Criminal Investigations Bureau investigated a reported $10,000 credit card fraud at Arctic Spas. Seven Halton officers followed the driver all the way to a storage unit on Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls, and was met by three others. The four were then arrested. The driver was not charged, said Hansen, after police determined he was simply a driver for hire who had advertised his services on Kijij. The case led police to a storage locker in Niagara Falls and the discovery of a quantity of merchandise along with counterfeit credit cards. Police later executed search warrants in two rooms at a Niagara Falls motel. A quantity of gift cards, receipts, a laptop computer and a card reader were among the items seized.

Store owner James Larkins, 62, was indicted for first-degree theft, while 49-year-old Matthew Poorman was indicted for first-degree aggravated theft. Beaverton police said an employee at Target called them on Aug. 5 to report multiple thefts by the same man, saying the man would come in, pick out sporting-goods equipment, put the items in a shopping cart and walk out without paying.

Should Strong Leaders Also Be Great Teachers?  When employees need to learn something at their company, usually they are either sent to a classroom or they learn through videos or downloadable training sessions. There are problems with both approaches, and managers could be the solution! (Role modeling)

What Bad Managers, Good Managers and Great Managers Do  What separates these types of managers? While the list could go on, communication is probably one of the biggest and most important factors. Bad managers tell, good managers explain why, and great managers go even beyond that. (Engage your employees)

The 4 Most Effective Words a Leader Can Say  Your employees come to you all the time with questions, obstacles and problems they need help resolving; it comes with the territory of being a leader.

Education is a broad term usually defined by an individual as a singular focus with an end result that oftentimes stagnates the brain and limits horizons. Reaching milestones is incredibly important, but keeping your curiosity and wonderment is the key to reaching beyond. No singular degree or certification will bring you the success – it merely opens the door to more learning and the realization that if you don't know something, you go find someone who does and learn it from them.
