"$35M a day is lost to shoplifting" - Media reports on why retail theft must be taken seriously
Murders, gun violence and other violent crimes may be overshadowing attention and effort against another crime -- one of the most common in the country. Law enforcement officials, store leaders and experts often have a difficult time dealing with retail theft/shoplifting -- a crime that's pervasive can lead to further violent crime. There was a recent incident in Brown Deer in which a shoplifter fled the scene in a vehicle and soon ran a red light -- smashing into an innocent victim's car, which then burst into flames. Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt -- but this is one example of what the crime of retail theft can lead to. "$35 million a day is lost to shoplifting," Stan Stoykovic, professor at UW-Milwaukee said. Stoykovic has studied retail theft, and says two-thirds of the crime in this country involves drunk driving and shoplifting. So is retail theft something law enforcement officials should pay more attention to? "Businesses want you to pay attention," Stoykovic said. "While some think of it as a minor crime, and it is, the facts of the matter is it's pervasive and it cuts across all age groups, all socioeconomic statuses, across gender lines," Stoykovic said. Stoykovic says less than 12% of shoplifters are caught, and just 50% of those arrested are prosecuted. "The sheer volume is so huge it's something we have to pay attention to," Stoykovic said. When retail theft occurs, good security guards can get a license plate number, a description, and then call police. "Businesses have had horror stories trying to deal with shoplifters -- confronting them, fighting with them, causing injury. It's not worth the cost of the item being stolen typically. Those are issues businesses have to think about," Stoykovic said. And for those who think retail theft is a victimless crime -- it's not. Stoykovic says it's a primary reason many businesses go out of business and the cost of the loss to the stores are passed onto us as customers. Stoykovic says aside from shoplifting rings, which involve criminal operations, many shoplifters don't plan their crimes. They simply see an opportunity to get away with something, and take it. fox6now.com

1.6M credit/debit cards used to commit $1.8B in reshipping fraud each year
A time-honored method of extracting cash from stolen credit cards involves "reshipping" scams, which manage the purchase, reshipment and resale of carded consumer goods from America to Eastern Europe - primarily Russia. A new study suggests that some 1.6 million credit and debit cards are used to commit at least $1.8 billion in reshipping fraud each year, and identifies some choke points for disrupting this lucrative money laundering activity. Many retailers long ago stopped allowing direct shipments of consumer goods from the United States to Russia and Eastern Europe, citing the high rate of fraudulent transactions for goods destined to those areas. As a result, fraudsters have perfected the reshipping service, a criminal enterprise that allows card thieves and the service operators essentially split the profits from merchandise ordered with stolen credit and debit cards. krebsonsecurity.com

Whole Foods cutting 1,500 jobs
Whole Foods is cutting 1,500 jobs over the next two months, or about 1.6% of its workforce, as it focuses on its strategy to lower prices for customers, the grocery chain said Monday. The cuts come after Whole Foods added more than 9,000 jobs in the past year. The company said it expects "a significant percentage" of employees being let go to find other jobs among Whole Foods' open positions, including those available due to more than 100 new stores that are set to open. Whole Foods has about 91,000 employees and 431 stores across the U.S., U.K., and Canada. Whole Foods declined to elaborate on which specific positions will be cut. Whole Foods is up against increasing competition in the organic grocery space it once dominated as more mainstream and affordable grocery chains have started selling organic brands. usatoday.com

Holiday workers tough to find in some low-unemployment areas
Retailers and shippers are holding their temporary holiday hiring in check this year, but will have difficulty filling those spots in some areas of the country with low unemployment, reports the Denver Post. That could make opening on Thanksgiving Day, a practice that spread last year, more difficult. In Colorado, with lower unemployment than the national average of 5.1%, companies are going to churches and schools to find people to take the temporary jobs, which need low-to medium-skilled workers. retaildive.com

Why it's hard to legislate good corporate behavior - San Francisco's new fair scheduling law addresses a real problem, but is proving tricky to put into practice
In July, San Francisco started implementing a first-in-the-nation law aimed at curtailing the trend towards "just-in-time" scheduling, where managers call in employees to work on short notice. The new measure requires large chain retailers to publish schedules at least two weeks in advance, and to compensate employees with "predictability pay" if they make changes less than a week ahead of time. It also mandates that additional hours be offered to existing employees first before new hires are made, and that part-time workers be paid at the same rate as people who work full-time.

So far, it's been easier to publish schedules than live up to the spirit of the law. "The two-week notice seemed to be instituted right away, but the other stuff is lagging," says Gordon Mar, director of San Francisco Jobs With Justice, a labor-backed group that pushed for the "Retail Workers Bill of Rights" and has been monitoring its implementation. The sluggish response may be because fines don't kick in until Oct. 3; the city is still hashing out the rules. But the spotty compliance so far highlights the difficulty of attempts to mandate worker-friendly practices - especially the kind that touch the most fundamental aspects of business operations, rather than those that simply require higher pay and better benefits.

San Francisco employers fought the new ordinance, but couldn't prevent its passage. Now, they complain it's impacting service. "We're hearing from members in San Francisco that it really is not working well at all," says Ronald Fong, president of the California Grocers Association. Stores can't always predict surges in foot traffic, which might be brought on a sunny day, leaving managers without the option to bring in more staff. Some businesses don't mind the rules in principle, but object to the red tape. "Everybody pretty much operates on a predictive schedule," says Bill Dombrowski, president of the California Retailers Association. "But the process of implementing this, with offering the employees hours in writing and waiting three days for a response, it's a lot of government intrusion into very minute detail."

So far, fair scheduling laws aren't spreading as quickly as minimum wage and paid sick leave laws. A statewide bill in California failed a couple weeks ago, and no other local ordinances have passed besides San Francisco's, though there are active campaigns in several cities including Minneapolis and Washington D.C. Meanwhile, several companies have acted on their own to curb some of the practices that workers have found most disruptive, like on-call shifts, where workers have to be available even if they aren't ultimately asked to work. But in some cases - like that of Starbucks, which committed to eliminating many of those practices - those voluntary changes haven't been any more effective than government mandates. washingtonpost.com

Settlement: Hollister to remove steps from entrances
The clothing chain Hollister will get rid of steps at its trademark entrances at dozens of stores across the U.S. to make the doorways wheelchair accessible as part of a settlement approved Thursday by a federal judge. The agreement marks the end of a six-year court battle involving the retailer that specializes in Southern California-inspired casual wear targeted at teens. The entrances are designed to look like beach houses. Hollister, owned by Abercrombie & Fitch Co., had already started converting many of its storefronts before the settlement was finalized, saying it also has spent $11 million on additional accessibility measures. yahoo.com

Banks: Card Breach at Hilton Hotel Properties
Multiple sources in the banking industry say they have traced a pattern of credit card fraud that suggests hackers have compromised point-of-sale registers in gift shops and restaurants at a large number of Hilton Hotel and franchise properties across the United States. Hilton says it is investigating the claims. In August, Visa sent confidential alerts to numerous financial institutions warning of a breach at a brick-and-mortar entity that is known to have extended from April 21, 2015 to July 27, 2015. The alerts to each bank included card numbers that were suspected of being compromised, but per Visa policy those notifications did not name the breached entity. However, sources at five different banks say they have now determined that the common point-of-purchase for cards included in that alert had only one commonality: They were all were used at Hilton properties, including the company's flagship Hilton locations as well as Embassy Suites, Doubletree, Hampton Inn and Suites, and the upscale Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. krebsonsecurity.com

Identity theft hit 7% of US population last year
Almost 18 million people were victims of identity theft in the United States last year, with the majority of crimes targeting credit cards and bank accounts, the Department of Justice said Sunday. The figure represents 7 percent of the U.S. population aged 16 or older and is a rise of 1 million people from 2012, the last year for which the DOJ's Bureau of Justice Statistics published a similar report. The latest report counts instances where a person experienced misuse of a financial or other account -- not simply a breach of their personal information. About half of all victims first became aware of a problem when they were contacted by a financial institution with a further one in five noticing fraudulent charge in their account. One positive finding was a drop in the average amount of money lost. The mean out of pocket loss per incident fell from $4,804 to $2,895, although many losses were substantially lower, with the median loss unchanged at $100. csoonline.com

DHS CISO Suggests Punishing Those Who Repeatedly Fall for Phishing Schemes
Too often, individuals who fail to take the proper steps to secure IT aren't punished for their reckless behavior that leads to a cyberattack. But should those in the trenches, including senior-level personnel, who consistently fail to follow safe cyber hygiene be severely penalized for repeatedly falling for phishing attacks? That's an idea floated - though not necessarily endorsed - by Paul Beckman, CISO at the Department of Homeland Security. Speaking at a security summit in Washington last week, Beckman said DHS might consider establishing a policy that employees and contractors who hold security clearances and repeatedly fail anti-phishing tests would lose those security clearances, according to the publication Defense One. "There are no repercussions to bad behavior," Beckman said. "There's no punitive damage, so to speak. There's really nothing to incentivize these people to be aware, to be diligent." DHS sends faux phishing emails to employees to test them. Those who open attachments contained in the messages receive online security training. Still, some employees who have taken the training continue to fail the phishing test, Beckman said. careersinfosecurity.com

SuperValu Can't Ditch Data Breach Multi-District Litigation, Consumers Say
A proposed class of consumers blasted SuperValu's attempt to escape multidistrict litigation over the grocery store chain's data breach, telling a Minnesota federal court Thursday that they've pleaded enough facts to give them standing to pursue their suit. The plaintiffs called SuperValu Inc.'s motion meritless, saying the grocery store chain is ignoring recent data breach cases - including the one against Target Corp. in the same court - that have already established standing for consumers in similar circumstances. law360.com

"Data breaches are a real and growing problem for many organizations today. This trend makes the services provided by the Network Operations Center even more important as our customers' needs evolve," concluded Schafenberg.

Online Payment Fraud, The Next U.S. Retail Nightmare
The EMV standard is proven to solve the in-store Point of Sale data theft problem in many other countries. But it does nothing for eCommerce sales. In other words, the bad guys will now focus their efforts on data streams traveling from shoppers to on-line stores, and from those stores to payment providers. Hence we see the rise of online fraud in countries where EMV has been adopted. On the good news front, there are far fewer sales in total on-line than there are in stores, and consumers have more ways to shield their credit card information from retailers than they do in stores. PayPal and Amazon payments eliminate the need to send any credit card information at all across cyberspace. The other good news is that consumers remain not responsible for losses greater than $50. The bad news is that retail data security personnel will be destined to shovel the sands of data security for the foreseeable future. A fortune was spent on PCI Compliance. Another fortune is being spent on EMV. Next up: Online fraud prevention software. It's a long road, and retailers have no choice but to walk it. forbes.com

Data breaches a growing threat to mobile payments
A newly published report from IT governance body, ISACA - the Information Systems Audit and Control Association - says that of 900 cybersecurity experts recently surveyed, an overwhelming majority - 87% - say they expect an increase in mobile payment data breaches over the next 12 months. Worringly, nearly half (47%) of the experts say mobile payments are not secure, even though 42% of them have themselves used this payment method in 2015. In addition, only 23% of the cybersecurity experts believe that mobile payments are secure in keeping personal information safe. And, while 89% of the experts deemed cash was the most secure payment method, only 9% said they preferred to use it. The survey respondents ranked major vulnerabilities associated with mobile payments as:

1. Use of public WiFi (26%)

2. Lost or stolen devices (21%)

3. Phishing/shmishing (phishing attacks via text messages) (18%)

4. Weak passwords (13%) itwire.com

San Diego, CA: Imperial Valley business owner admits trafficking $3.2 Million in counterfeit cell phone parts
An Imperial Valley businessman pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to a long-running conspiracy involving money laundering and the trafficking of millions of dollars of counterfeit cell phone parts. Octavio Cesar Sana, a Spanish national with legal U.S. residency, admitted in a plea agreement that he sold at least $3.2 million worth of Chinese-made counterfeit cell phone parts through businesses he operated since 2007-including a website called "Flexqueen.com." Sana admitted in his plea agreement that he and co-conspirator Hongwei Du attended meetings in the United States to set up and expand their counterfeit trafficking ventures. The two were arrested Feb. 3 at the Imperial Valley Airport following an extensive investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Criminal Investigations. HSI special agents executed a series of search warrants throughout the U.S., resulting in the seizure of more than 55,000 counterfeit items and additional criminal charges in several jurisdictions. imperialvalleynews.com

Indianapolis, IN: Police investigate death of Indianapolis teen
Terrell Day while in police custody 
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the death of an 18-year-old suspected shoplifter who complained of trouble breathing before dying in police custody on 26 September. The teenager from Indianapolis, was identified as Terrell Day. IMPD and Cumberland Police Department responded to a report of a person with a gun at around 12.45pm on East Washington Street. The male suspect had been confronted by a loss prevention officer from the Burlington Coat Factory inside the store. There, Day reportedly pointed a handgun at the officer and ran from the store. The Loss Prevention Officer followed Day to the parking lot and kept him in sight before IMPD and Cumberland Police arrived. Day was found lying in a grassy area behind a gas station by police. He surrendered to police and was taken into custody by IMPD without incident, while his handgun was recovered near him.

Berkeley, CA: Man finds $1,300 in Domino's wings delivery box; honesty pays with Free Pizza for a year
A man ordered pizza and wings from a Domino's but got a lot more than he ordered. Mike Vegas told reporters he found stacks of cash inside the delivery box. "I ordered some pizzas and I thought I was going to have the day off. I was going to sit at home and enjoy my relaxation," Vegas said. Vegas said he ate one slice, then put the box in his refrigerator. Several hours later, he noticed he had several calls and messages. The calls were from the Domino's delivery driver, who was supposed to go to the bank after dropping off Vegas' food. It turns out, the driver had put the cash in the wings box for safekeeping. "About 5 a.m., I got home from work and went to my refrigerator and pulled out what I thought was wings. It turned out to be $1,300 bucks," Vegas said. Vegas gave the money back to Domino's. In return, they offered him free pizza for a whole year. winknews.com

Networking has always been a key to career development and finding that next job. However, if you're not careful it can also limit you, eliminate you and even work against you. If your network is comprised of executives doing exactly what you do, then you may have competition and may even find some working against you. You've got to broaden and expand your network outside your immediate group and establish relationships outside your company and your professional circle. Remembering that quantity is no substitute for quality and, as in any mutually beneficial relationship, what you bring to the table for them is as important as what they bring to the table for you.
