History of NCORCA (Northern California
Organized Retail Crime Association)
Al Moody, Crime Prevention Programs - Coordinator
NCORCA/Inter-Faith Task Force/InfraGard - Sacramento
City of Roseville Police Department
The Northern California Organized Retail Crime Association (NCORCA) was
founded in 2010 by the City of Roseville, California Police Department and a
core group of Retail Loss Prevention Managers. The initial goal of the group was
for retail establishments and local law enforcement to partner in reducing
organized retail crime. The boundaries of NCORCA have grown to include crimes
along Interstate 80 between Sparks, NV and San Francisco as well as Interstate 5
between Fresno, CA and the Oregon border.
The group stays organized through monthly newsletters that provide new trends in
organized retail crime as well as educational tips to reduce retail theft both
internally and externally. Both Retailers and Law Enforcement issue alerts via
CrimeDex to share criminal incidents. NCORCA is also on the forefront of
developing a Crime Lab to share current criminal activities with the goal of
solving crimes that impact Retailers and Law Enforcement and to expedite
Current membership continues to grow with over 300 Retailers and Law Enforcement
members. Prospective NCORCA members can apply via "CrimeDex.com".

Merchants are scrambling as fraud cost shift to retailers tomorrow|
Starting tomorrow, the merchants will have to foot the bill for the transactions
if they haven't upgraded their payment terminals to accept new, more secure
cards. Behind the scenes, though, the risks of card fraud are shifting. Under
timetables announced by card networks Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc., most card
issuers starting Thursday are expected to immediately start passing certain
fraudulent transaction costs onto retailers that don't have the capability to
process the chip-based cards, industry executives said.
Many smaller merchants won't have the technology ready in time. Only about 19%
of merchants will have the equipment to accept the chip cards by the end of the
year, according to Mercator Advisory Group, a consulting firm. Heartland
Payment Systems Inc estimates that about 150,000 of their 180,000 merchant
customers, aren't ready to accept chip cards.
Despite the new rules, card issuers will continue to bear the cost of fraud
stemming from counterfeit cards that contain data stolen from nonchip cards. A
recent report from Mercator estimates that 58% of credit cards will be
chip-enabled by the end of 2015. Banks are also now issuing chips on debit
cards as well.
Who's ready for EMV?
The mandate for retailers to accept chip-enabled, EMV-compliant payment cards
starts Oct. 1. But how ready an individual retailer is may depend on what type
of retailer they are. At least that's according to a new study from The Strawhecker Group (TSG), which shows that a leading 69% of shoe stores and 59%
of department stores have EMV-ready POS terminals. On the lower end of the
spectrum, 24% of bookstores and 23% of stationery stores have EMV-ready
terminals. Previous TSG research shows that 27% of all retailers will be EMV-ready
by Oct. 1. "It makes sense that certain retail merchant types are more ready
than others for the liability shift, as some are much more likely to potentially
see fraudulent transactions," said Mike Strawhecker, principal at TSG. "While
many retailers have not yet upgraded their terminals, big-box merchants such as Walmart and Target are ready for Oct. 1." The sample was based on a minimum of
75 current credit and debit card-accepting merchants in the U.S. per retail
Crime Rings Often Behind Skimming Attacks
Credit unions hit by ATM skimmers are likely victims of multi-tier crime rings
recruiting young people online and paying them for their efforts, according to a
defense attorney specializing in Internet crime and technology law. Skimming
outbreaks, such as the recent one in Wisconsin, which involved over a dozen
devices, are often part of bigger criminal enterprises.
Skimmers often don't know each other personally; the recruiting is often via the
Internet, she said. "The people tend to go after 18- to 25-year-old women who
are college kids," she added. Sometimes people enter the fray after dating
someone who knows higher-end criminals, she said. Strickler said criminals even
pay people $20 or $40 to assemble a skimming device and then sell or mail them.
"It's a pyramid scheme where the lower guys are making $800 while the guys in
[other countries] are making billions of dollars in 10 minutes," she said.
"You work at McDonald's for minimum wage, making nothing," she said. "Go ahead
and use this device and scan everybody's credit card for a day. Do it for a day
and I'll give you $500. That's hard to say no to." cutimes.com
Three Questions for Managing Third-Party Risk
In light of increased outsourcing and third-party involvement in day-to-day
business operations, financial management functions in all organizations play an
important role in third-party risk management programs.
By asking themselves the following three questions related to third-party risk
exposure, financial officers can gain meaningful insight into their company's
third-party risk management efforts that can help them to better manage risk and
improve financial management decisions. 1) Does our company have a full
inventory of its contracts and agreements? 2) How do we know that our
relationships comply with the agreements in place? 3) How do we identify all
relevant third parties and manage the overall effort?
As organizations work to effectively manage the risks associated with
third-party relationships, their financial functions are applying a more
thoughtful approach to better risk management.
Hudson's Bay Company to consolidate & re-organize - cutting 265 corporate and
headquarters employees in North America to save $75M
As part of the broader initiative, HBC will enhance existing technology, while
also accelerating the consolidation of all corporate IT to one common platform

slower than last year's 5.2% growth
Deloitte tends to be one of the first to share its predictions about holiday

forecast of 3.5% to 4% growth is solid, but not spectacular as economic forces
that would normally augur well for robust growth are offset by negative factors

Former NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly opens up on terrorism, cybersecurity
concerns on Day 2 at ASIS 2015
There is perhaps no greater authority to speak to the threats our nation faces
from terrorists than former New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. Having
served two different stints as police commissioner from 1992 to 1994 and 2002 to
2013, Kelly is one of the most recognizable law enforcement officials in the
country and was on the front lines in responding to both the 1993 bombing of the
World Trade Center and later the 9/11 terror attacks. In a keynote address at ASIS 2015 on Tuesday, Kelly said he believes a cyber terrorist attack is
inevitable, adding that there is a strong need to grow the security field and
recruit the right talent.

Credit Card Issuers Not Ready for EMV Either
A press release from MasterCard this morning says that only 40% of
their issued cards have chips for EMV. The tone of the release, in our
humble opinion, is designed to put a positive spin on otherwise dismal news.
And, the statement that only 26% of merchants are ready is perhaps the
lowest quote I have seen and seems included to portray card issuers in a more
positive light-, as in, we're more ready than the merchants. Disappointing in
the max! See full press release
Retail group rips chip-card conversion expense, pushes for PIN security
The top attorney for the powerful National Retail Federation blasted banks and
credit card companies on Tuesday for problems and costs with the massive ongoing
U.S. rollout of computer chip cards and chip card readers.
Mallory Duncan, general counsel for the NRF, said computer chip cards will
initially require customers to provide a signature, instead of a distinct PIN
(personal identification number), which won't eliminate online and phone fraud
with a stolen or lost chip card.
He also said the financial burden -- now in the tens of billions of dollars --
of making the transition to chip card technology unfairly rests mainly with
retailers, not banks and credit card providers.
"We and our customers should not bear the burden for flaws in a 50-year-old
[magnetic card] system," Duncan said in a conference call with reporters on
Tuesday. The transition to chip cards and chip terminals has "been all stick and
no carrot and [the technology] doesn't work... We would like it to work and we
want a secure payment system." The NRF is the largest retail association in the
world, with 18,000 members.

Russian Hacker Gets 4.5 Years For Computer Fraud & Causing $500M in losses
A Russian man was sentenced to four and a half years in prison for his part in
the distribution of malicious Citadel software, which has infected 11 million
computers worldwide and has caused $500 million in losses, federal
prosecutors said Tuesday. Federal prosecutors said in 2012, Belorossov
downloaded a version of Citadel, referred to as a "banking trojan" and designed
to steal online banking credentials, credit card information and other personal
information, and used it to remotely access 7,000 computers from which he
gleaned financial information.
Trump Hotels Confirms POS Malware Breach
Forensic Investigation Has Not 'Conclusively Determined' Card Data Exfiltrated,
Misused. The hotel chain bearing 2016 U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump's
name has confirmed that its point-of-sale systems were infected by malware for
more than a year. The confirmation comes about three months after the hotel
chain said it was investigating reports that its POS systems had been breached.
The Trump Hotel Collection, in an undated "legal notice of potential security
incident" posted on its website, now warns that POS systems at seven hotels that
it manages - in Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas, New York, Miami and Toronto - were
infected with malware, potentially affecting an unspecified number of customers.
"Payment card data - including payment card account number, card expiration
date, security code, and cardholder name - of individuals who used a payment
card at the hotel between May 19, 2014, and June 2, 2015, may have been
European businesses warned of online fraud threat as US shifts to EMV
Global Risk Technologies, a technology company specialising in chargeback
compliance, is warning online merchants that the rollout of chip and PIN card
protection (EMV) in the United States is set to cause a major shift in credit
card fraud to card-not-present (CNP) transactions in the UK and Europe.
The difference now is that fraudsters have nowhere else to turn besides the
established online ecommerce markets in Europe. According to FICO, the US
accounted for an incredible 47% of the fraudulent cross-border transactions on
UK debit cards in 2014. As the US increases its physical card security, the
full force of stolen card monetisation will move online to CNP fraud, ignoring
Walgreens ahead of the curve on new chip-and-PIN payment tech
Credit cards with "EMV chips" are now being accepted at all of the more than
8,200 Walgreens retail stores nationwide, ahead of the Oct. 1 deadline for

major retailers, including Walgreens, will be equipped to accept PINs or
signatures and are urging card issuers to offer customers chip-and-PIN
Five retail IT trends for holiday 2015
Verizon Enterprise Solutions has identified five key IT trends that will impact
retail during the 2015 holiday season. Black Friday moves down
During 2014, consumer traffic spiked less on Black Friday and Cyber Monday than
in years past, and Dupre sees that trend intensifying this year. E-commerce -
Everyone is doing it
Dupre also identified a continuing shift to e-commerce, including both desktop
and mobile customers. Retailers need to follow steps to take advantage of the
increased customer intimacy provided by e-commerce. Who wants home delivery?
One growing trend that will keep customers coming into stores is the rising
popularity of buy-online-pickup-in-store (BOPIS) transactions. In particular,
customers now expect BOPIS and same-day delivery." The holiday data blend
Big Data is just as, if not more crucial, during the holiday season than it is
during the rest of the year. Dupre sees retailers using a new Big Data holiday
tactic, however. Tis the season for IT knowledge As retail operations on
both the back and front ends become more technology-oriented, even seasonal
holiday workers will have to come on board with more IT capabilities than they
had in the past.

as well as breakout sessions to discuss industry developments and best
"This was a great event and a fun two days for me. It was nice to see how my
peers are using the application in unique ways by bringing in multiple data
feeds and sharing the results with different departments. Moving forward I think
loss prevention can become the hub for all data analytics within a company, and
it was reassuring knowing that other Retail 20/20 users feel the same way," said
Gregg Smith, Sr. Director of Asset Protection, Five Below.
The common theme flowing through the entire User Forum was the idea of working
with different departments within your own organization, making the most of the
data at hand to improve every aspect of the business. Attendees also had the
opportunity to help drive a discussion around the future of Retail 20/20, and
voted on the priority level of planned functionality improvements.
Jeremy Shultz, AP Analyst, Brookshire Grocery Company said, "Karla and I have
taken a lot away from this year's User Forum. It was great to meet other users
from around the country and to share stories about the different ways we utilize
Retail 20/20. It was also nice to see what's on the horizon with Agilence, and
to have a say in the direction of the software."

Report: Online returns are a big problem
TrueShip data shows that about one-third of all products purchased online are
returned by consumers. Of these returns, almost one-quarter (23%) are due to the
wrong item being shipped. Another 22% of e-commerce returns results from a
product looking and appearing different when it arrives than it did online. A
further 22% of e-commerce returns are due to a damaged item being received. This
means in total, 67% of all returned online purchases are the fault of the
retailer and not the customer. 82% of consumers will not shop again at an online
store with difficult returns.

Morehead City Police officers are investigating a major theft. "We're looking
anywhere from $75 ($75,000) to about $100,000 worth of equipment that was
stolen," Lt. Kelly Guthrie said. The items were stolen from fourteen boats at a
local boat dealer and repair shop. The thieves struck overnight Sunday into

items, there was one that had what they call a fighting chair that was taken off
of one of the boats," Lt. Kelly Guthrie said. The chair stolen was worth about
$10,000 to $15,000 alone. Dave Harvell of Carteret County is among those with
