a day is lost to shoplifting" - Media reports on why retail theft must be taken
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.
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.
Protection 1 Reaches Milestone with Security Only Network Deployments
Protection 1, the leading, premier, full-service business and home security
company in the U.S., announces that it has reached a major milestone in the
design, implementation and monitoring of security-only networks for its clients.
It now reports that is has over 1,000 network devices under management across
750 networks, representing 18 unique customer logos. This represents a 500%
year-over-year increase in managed network device deployments. Some of the key
advantages to implementing a security only network include higher bandwidth
availability and speed and access to the network for loss prevention and
security teams while not impacting business critical systems. Protection 1's

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.
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.
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
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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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.

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

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%)

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

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. IMPD claimed Day told
officers he was having trouble breathing, prompting a call for an ambulance. The
emergency crew assessed the teen suspect and determined he could be transported
to Indianapolis Arrestee Processing Center. However, while in the back of the
jail wagon, Day complained again of breathing issues. A second ambulance was
called for Day, but the teen's condition quickly deteriorated. Police said that
despite life-saving efforts by the emergency crew, Day died in the back of the

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.

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.
