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

Identity Theft, Personal Cybersecurity and Terrorism Top the List of Americans' Security Concerns - 49% say personal safety  Security related topics are often front and center in the 24-hour news cycle, but what concerns Americans the most? According to a new national survey from University of Phoenix College of Criminal Justice and Security, identity theft (70 percent) and personal cybersecurity (61 percent) are the security issues of greatest concern. Other security concerns include: terrorism (55 percent), national security (54 percent), personal safety (49 percent), neighborhood crime (47 percent), property theft (44 percent) and natural disasters (44 percent). Despite recent high profile incidents, only 18 percent of working adults are concerned about workplace violence. More working adults (31 percent) are concerned about organizational security issues such as corporate cybersecurity, network security, fraud and corporate espionage. (Source businesswire.com)

Retailers in EEOC's Investigative Crosshairs - Are Workplace Personality Tests Fair? Growing Use of Tests Sparks Scrutiny Amid Questions of Effectiveness and Workplace Discrimination  Workplace personality testing has become a $500 million-a-year business and is growing by 10% to 15% a year. But the rise of personality tests has sparked growing scrutiny of their effectiveness and fairness. Some companies have scaled back, changed or eliminated their use of such tests. Civil-rights groups long focused on overt forms of workplace discrimination claim that data-driven algorithms powering the tests could make jobs harder to get for people who don't conform to rigid formulas. The Equal Employment Opportunity commission is investigating whether personality tests discriminate against people with disabilities. As part of the investigation, officials are trying to determine if the tests shut out people suffering from mental illnesses such as depression or bipolar disorder, even if they have the right skills for the job, according to EEOC documents. EEOC officials won't comment on the investigation. In general, though, "if a person's results are affected by the fact that they have an impairment and the results are used to exclude the person from a job, the employer needs to defend their use of the test even if the test was lawful and administered correctly," says Christopher Kuczynski, EEOC acting associate legal counsel. Employers are watching the investigation closely. A ruling against personality tests would "set a tremendous precedent," forcing companies and test makers to prove their tests aren't discriminatory. Job-screening personality tests are largely based on a psychological model developed in the 1930s. Until recently, job candidates often took the tests well into the hiring process, and the results were considered along with interviews and past experience. A must read for all those involved - subscription required. Great overview and update with virtually all the companies discussed being retailers. (Source wsj.com)

Retail top industry for breaches - It's All in the Passwords
Retail is the top industry targeted for data breaches. According to the 2014 Global Security Report from cybersecurity provider Trustwave, retail made up 35% of attacks Trustwave investigated in 2013. Food and beverage ranked second at 18% and hospitality ranked third at 11%. In addition, POS breaches accounted for 33% of Trustwave's 2013 investigations, while e-commerce made up 54% of assets targeted and data centers comprised 10% of assets targeted. The median number of days from initial intrusion to detection was 87 days. Weak or default passwords contributed to one-third of compromises investigated by Trustwave. (Source chainstoreage.com)

Second attack hits Supervalu grocery stores payment systems - This time they were ready and only hit 4 Cub Food franchise stores  SuperValu, the grocery store operator hit by a cyberattack in June and July, has suffered a second attack on its payment processing system, it said Monday. The Minnesota-based company said the more recent attack involved different malware installed on the part of its computer network that processes card payments at some of its Shop 'n Save, Shoppers Food & Pharmacy and Cub Foods stores. But the company said it believes that cardholder information is largely safe. While the second breach is no doubt embarrassing for the company, the severity of the attack was partially mitigated by technology it had deployed since the first breach, it said. It only succeeded in capturing payment card data between Aug. 27 and Sept. 21 from some checkout lanes at four Cub Foods franchise locations in Hastings, Shakopee, Roseville and White Bear Lake, Minnesota. SuperValu said it doesn't believe the captured data was transmitted to a third party. (Source csoonline.com)

NRF's privacy expert speaks on data breach and cybersecurity legislation
What's going on with data breach legislation?
This past Congress has been no different than the previous four terms, with members wanting to enact a uniform federal law which would require companies that have suffered a breach to notify every potentially affected consumer. The reason these bills are being proposed is essentially because there are 47 state laws that currently require breach notifications. How complicated is notification if there is a breach?  NRF supports the principle of one uniform national standard so that ... businesses will not have to wade through a set of 51 different laws to figure how they notify [consumers]. It would also be good for consumers because they would know what their rights were in terms of receiving notice, no matter where they live. In an average credit card transaction, there's the retailer, bank, payment processer, credit card company, etc. How would federal legislation ensure all are included in the law? Some of the proposals we've seen in Congress have suggested that the only entity that has a [breach] notice obligation is the retailer and everyone else in the [payment] stream would be exempted. There have been many breaches. Why don't we have a federal law yet? Talk about cybersecurity legislation. Where are we? Where does NRF fit into U.S. cybersecurity concerns? (Source nrf.com)

The Crime-as-a-Service business model is growing & anyone can become a cyber-criminal  In which specialists in the virtual underground economy develop products and services for use by other criminals. This Crime-as-a-Service business model drives innovation and sophistication, and provides access to a wide range of services that facilitate almost any type of cybercrime. A new iOCTA report highlights that, as a consequence, entry barriers into cybercrime are being lowered, allowing those lacking technical expertise - including traditional organized crime groups - to venture into cybercrime by purchasing the skills and tools they lack. "The inherently transnational nature of cybercrime, with its growing commercialization and sophistication of attack capabilities, is the main trend identified in the iOCTA. It means that issues concerning attribution, the abuse of legitimate services, and inadequate or inconsistent legislation are among the most important challenges facing law enforcement today.

The days of credit card fraud are numbered
Today magstripes are on the backs of millions of US-issued credit and debit cards, where they hold all the information needed to produce a flawless counterfeit card -- account number, expiration date, and a secret code called a CVV. That has made Forrest Parry's invention one of the computer underground's most prized targets -- more valuable than anything on your hard drive. We were reminded of that last week, when Home Depot confirmed that 56 million shoppers had their credit card data siphoned from the big box retailer's point-of-sale systems over six months. That's 3,000 miles of magstripe, stolen three inches at a time. Since about 2001, stolen magstripe swipes, or "dumps," have been the pork bellies of a massive hacker commodities market, centered in Eastern Europe and stretching around the globe. Beyond the hackers who breach stores like Home Depot, and the resellers like Rescator who market the cards, there are vendors specialising in the hardware and material -- plastic embossers, fake holograms, blank cards, magstripe encoders -- needed to use the data and others who crank out professional fake IDs to help pass the fake cards. By the most conservative estimates, it all adds up to $11 billion (7 billion pounds) in losses annually. (Source wired.co)

When a Big Ecommerce Order Is Really a Scam
The email inquiry seems honest enough. A customer wants to place an order; perhaps she is even going to place a large order and wants to know if she can get a discount and quick delivery. But, unfortunately, the order could be a scam. Fraud is a significant problem for retailers that most often happens when a buyer places an fraudulent online order via a stolen credit card. But retailers might also be the target of email scams. Frequently, the thieves will act like a buyer with a question, and eventually end up asking you to pay a third-party for picking up products or accept unusual wire transfers. Watch out for these scams including The Glove Order and The Horse Feed Inquiry. (Source practicalecommerce.com)

The growing scope and challenge of data loss prevention - 3rd-party vendors mean more entry points to your retailer's data  With hacks and data breaches continuing to hit the news headlines, businesses should be more aware than ever before about the risks and threats posed to their data. As businesses and organizations incorporate an ever-growing number of solutions, platforms and applications into their IT operations, it goes without saying that the scope for data loss, and its prevention, rises in tandem. At a very basic level, by simply looking at the increasing number of entry points to data for staff and third parties, and the number of ways in which it can be removed from an organization, you can see that the scope for DLP has drastically increased over the past 20 years.

Using Real-Time Data to Detect Fraud
More and more retailers are using Big Data to rethink things like sales, fraud detection and inventory levels. They're looking at shaving seconds from an activity or boosting sales by percentage points. While volume can be the key to recognizing fraud, velocity is the key to stopping fraud. New real-time Big Data platforms enable companies to process massive quantities of historical information and crosscheck new transactions in real-time to spot patterns and halt a transaction before it occurs. By having real-time data at their fingertips, data scientists can also look at new information on the fly, evolving countermeasures just as criminals are adapting to security that's already in place. With every measure of fraud prevention, companies can lower their costs, protect their assets and safeguard their customers. (Source smartdatacollective.com)

Data Breach: ACME Markets in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were potentially affected  Card data of ACME shoppers may be at risk after another hack, the supermarket's owner said. Albertsons, which owns ACME Markets, and Supervalu made the announcement Monday. The breach could affect ACME Markets stores in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Every executive has an agenda out of absolute necessity and in the normal course of doing business. Agendas, in essence, drive performance and results. However, it's the hidden agendas that one must be on the look out for because those are the ones that do the most damage to executives and companies. And while many tend not to acknowledge them, they do exist, and finding them is the key. Dealing with them and managing them is extremely difficult and oftentimes one finds his or herself managing the after effect and not even seeing them until it's too late.
