If you could switch places with one person in the LP world - who would it be?
"Wow! This one is hard! I would want to 'shadow' two LP professionals, Gus Downing because
he is innovative, and Keith White, VP of LP at the Gap for his insight on strategy, leadership and
emotional intelligence."

The International Association of Interviewers (IAI) teamed up with Vector Security to recognize remarkable women in loss prevention through a special edition of the CFInsider, a publication of IAI. The group selected individuals who are well-rounded, tenured in their profession, value continuing education and are all-around excellent leaders in their organizations as well as the overall loss prevention field.

IAI based its selections on the key principles of IAI, then narrowed the list based upon these criteria: Industry Commitment, Dedication to Learning, Leadership Qualities, and Career Journey.
IAI will continue to recognize and honor remarkable women in the LP field each year by devoting a special edition of the CFInsider to them, as well as columns in their regular publication and dedicated space on their website, www.certifiedinterviewer.com.

Declining Foot Traffic At Malls Continuing - Is Fear Playing A Part? The Hidden Impact of The Active Shooter  Much has been reported about the 18% decrease in mall foot traffic over the last three years, amounting to 16 billion fewer consumers annually, according to one study. Experts point to the impact of the internet, mobile devices, the time-strapped consumer, the changing behavior of the Millennials, the success of the warehouse clubs, super centers, and dollar stores. But have we considered the spike in active shooters, the increase in violence, the insistence of a few to practice "open carry", the movie theater mass killing incident, and all the other incidents that the media and the internet have saturated our society and our consumers with? And now the "Terror in the Mall" documentary airing nationwide - all of the above helping to fuel a fear factor that up until now no one was even mentioning as a potential reason why some consumers may be avoiding malls. When in fact, fear is the most powerful driver of human behavior. Can you honestly say you haven't thought about it the last time you walked a mall? I have and quite frankly we've heard consumers talking about it virtually everywhere we go. Just recently, we heard a number of mall-based specialty retailers say they're seeing even more of a dramatic drop in foot traffic this year. Has something changed over the last six months? Other than more active shooters, workplace deaths, mall violence, and parking lot shootings. With all these being reported real-time - coupled with the data breaches, the loss of our personal information and invasion of our privacy - and what we have is a scared consumer. One who wants to stay away from closed-in areas, crowds and have the ability to run to safety. It's our opinion that all of these factors are playing a part in the redefining of retail. It might be time to re-invent mall security and even re-invent specialty-store loss prevention from the standpoint of consumer safety. Maybe even using it in the marketing efforts: to reassure the consumer that their safety is the #1 concern that a retailer is dedicated to. Much too often we hear it after an incident, which is like closing the barn door after the horses have all left. Maybe it's time to put it up front and develop a proactive campaign to make consumers feel safe and important. After all, isn't that all of our objectives? We understand that Retail Means Jobs, but shouldn't it also be Retail Means Safety as well?

Last Thursday's beheading in food distribution center - terminated employee fired earlier that day had tried to convert coworkers to Muslim religion  The suspect, 30-year-old Alton Nolen, had been fired earlier that day and randomly selected people to target. Police interviews with employees determined he had recently had been "trying to convert some of his coworkers to the Muslim religion," Lewis said. Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff's deputy who is also the company's chief operating officer, shot Nolen as he was in the act of stabbing the second victim, 43-year-old Traci Johnson. Vaughan Foods is a fresh food distributor that regionally distributes produce and other food products, according to its website. The company is a subsidiary of Reser's Fine Foods. (Source wect.com)

Payment Vendor 'Signature Systems' PDQ POS - Hackers used to get into 216 Jimmy John's + 100 other small restaurants  Hackers had installed card-stealing malware on cash registers at some of its store locations. Jimmy John’s said the intrusion - which lasted from June 16, 2014 to Sept. 5, 2014 - occurred when hackers compromised the username and password needed to remotely administer point-of-sale systems at 216 stores. Those point-of-sale systems were produced by Newtown, Pa., based payment vendor Signature Systems. In a statement issued in the last 24 hours, Signature Systems released more information about the break-in, as well as a list of nearly 100 other stores - mostly small mom-and-pop eateries and pizza shops - that were compromised in the same attack. We have determined that an unauthorized person gained access to a user name and password that Signature Systems used to remotely access POS systems," the company wrote. "The unauthorized person used that access to install malware designed to capture payment card data from cards that were swiped through terminals in certain restaurants. The malware was capable of capturing the cardholder's name, card number, expiration date, and verification code from the magnetic stripe of the card." (Source krebsonsecurity.com)

Texas state lawmaker to introduce new cargo theft bill this January to toughen laws  Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, state Rep. Allen Fletcher (R-Cypress), Grand Prairie Police Chief Steve Dye, National Insurance Crime Bureau President/CEO Joe Wehrle and others conducted a news conference last week to stress the importance of stopping cargo theft.

Are mobile payments secure enough to go mainstream?
Although recent massive data breaches compromising consumers' personal and financial information have occurred using old-fashioned credit cards, security concerns about mobile payments are a major reason why they've been adopted so slowly. Perhaps that's why Apple has agreed to include Softcard, a mobile payment wallet backed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, on its phones, despite their competition. It helps make each of the various wallets available on a broad range of retail point of sales systems. Several experts say that mobile payments are indeed more secure than old-fashioned credit cards: They use various combinations of encrypted data, one-time-use codes, and layers of authentication not possible when swiping a plastic card with a set string of numbers and a magnetic stripe. Some use NFC technology, while CurrentC employs bar codes that can be scanned using existing systems. (Source retaildive.com)

Macy's seasonal hires to include 3,000 in stores for online business
For the first time Macy's is hiring 3,000 temporary employees for its stores to fulfill orders placed online for store pickup, ship online orders from stores and handle in-store returns of web orders. Macy's is hiring extra workers to handle fulfillment in its store this year now that it has completed the rollout of its buy online, pickup in store program. Consumers also can return online orders to the 800 Macy's and 37 Bloomingdale's stores nationwide owned by Macy's Inc. The hiring reflects a series of investments by Macy's to enable consumers to move easily between buying, ordering and returning items online and in stores. More initiatives are coming this fall, including a test of same-day delivery from Macy's stores and, in October, Macy's joining several other retailers in letting shoppers pay in stores with their new iPhone 6 smartphones from Apple Inc., using the Apple Pay pay-with-a-wave system Apple announced this month. Internet Retailer estimates Macy's generated $4.15 billion in online orders in 2013, an increase of 31% from $3.168 billion the prior year. (Source internetretailer.com)

Interacting in large networking groups can be very challenging even for the most seasoned of executives. The speed, the number of people, and the amount of information shared can be overwhelming. However, the one basic principal you can rely on is keep it simple, one person at a time and focus on that person both mentally and visually. Slow it down in your head and make sure you communicate clearly and sincerely regardless of the background you have with anyone or any group. Because at the end of the day you're all part of the same industry, the same community, and everyone has the same objective: to help develop and represent the industry as professionals.
