Director of Security Arrested for $300,000 Fraud

Former NYPD officer and winner of the NRF's 2010 "LP Case of the Year" Award busted after collecting $300K in disability benefits while working for luxury retailer Tourneau past decade  A retired NYPD ​officer was arrested by ​federal authorities at his home yesterday morning​, accused of bilking the government out of more than $300,000 in Social Security disability benefits - while working the past decade as Director of Security for luxury watchmaker and retailer Tourneau. James Carson, 50, of Yorktown, NY, should not have been working anywhere after claiming a hernia​​ted disc and other back problems forced him to leave the NYPD in 1990 and collect disability payments. According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office of NY, Carson has allegedly been working full-time as Director of Security for the retailer since at least 2004. Since 1990, he has collected $654,537 in Social Security benefits - including $306,431 while employed at Tourneau, prosecutors said. In order to prevent the Social Security Administration (SSA) from discovering that he was gainfully employed while claiming to be unemployed due to a disability, Carson took steps to conceal the income he was receiving from the company. Rather than get paid directly by Tourneau, Carson arranged for his compensation to be paid first to a corporation associated with his relative, and then paid from that corporation to Carson's relative as purported wages. In 2010, Carson won the NRF's "Loss Prevention Case of the Year" Award for his role in stopping a massive internal credit-card scheme involving two Tourneau managers who fraudulently charged $696,000 in purchases. Carson reported to the SSA in April that he hasn't worked since claiming disability, that he's been reliant on his wife to drive him places, and is routinely in excruciating agony. When he attended the SSA interview, he was limping and walking with a cane, and he claimed in written forms that he always uses a cane, prosecutors said. However, he walked out of court without using a cane Wednesday after appearing before a magistrate judge on charges of theft of government property, making false statements and failing to report income. He was released o​​n $600,000 bond and faces up to 20 years in jail. (Source justice.gov) (Source nypost.com)

Target's Lack of CISO Was 'Root Cause' of Systems Breach
The absence of a chief information security officer was a "root cause" of the major computer systems breach at Target Corp. last year, said a former manager at the retailer, during a panel discussion here at the Work-Bench Enterprise Security Summit Tuesday. Without a CISO, no one was able to articulate cyber risks to senior executives, said Karl Mattson, who worked at Target from 2008 until 2013, most recently as manager of cyber and global intelligence. "[Target] didn't have an advocate at the C-level, as an executive, advocating for IT security investment." said Mr. Mattson, now a senior vice president of technology risk management at PNC Financial Services Group Inc. If Target's senior management had known of such risks and what was at stake, they would have "made very different choices" of how they structured their organization, and how they invested in capabilities to defend the company's data. Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said that Mr. Mattson did not work in Target's corporate IT department and wasn't here when the breach was discovered, and had no involvement with it or the resulting investigation. "He has no direct knowledge of what happened," she said. (Source wsj.com)

New Survey shows consumers more worried about credit card security then their own health or retirement savings  The security of credit and debit card information is a bigger concern for consumers (93%) than their health (84%), retirement savings (81%) or losing their cell phone (63%), according to a new consumer trust survey from Honeywell. The survey, conducted by KRC Research, revealed that consumers have widespread awareness of and concern regarding recent data breaches at major retailers. Ninety percent of respondents have heard about recent credit or debit card breaches at major retailers, and more than one-fifth of respondents stated they do not feel secure when paying with debit cards at retail establishments.

Physical security equipment and services market to exceed $61B By 2018
Up from $44.4 billion in revenues in 2013, according to a new report, "Physical Security Equipment & Services Report—2014," from IHS Research, a market research firm. Service-based offerings are projected to further emerge as a defining feature of the North American market, their growth powered by manufacturers and service providers looking to bridge the gap between consumer-style business models and professional standard services. While markets such as video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) or access control as a service (ACaaS) currently account for a small proportion of total revenue right now, such technologies are expected to enjoy some of the most robust growth rates during the forecast period.

Criminals Currently Winning The War On Cybercrime
In some ways, 2014 has been the year of the retail/bank hack. Though Target capped off 2013 with the largest security breach in history, it was unable to even hold its crown for a full year before the Home Depot chased it from the throne. Joining the breach party that has been 2014 so far have been Jimmy John's sandwich shop, JP Morgan Chase and PF Changs. All of those chains have seen customer data such as card numbers, social security information and home addresses stolen right out the digital backdoor. And it's only going to get worse. The signature of the 2014 hack has been a multi-layered attack that brings damage in stages. What starts with a simple phishing scam has repeatedly grown to a data vacuuming exercise that eventually ends with customer credit and debit numbers being auctioned off on the dark web.

How Can Someone Steal Your Credit Card While It's Still in Your Wallet?
Credit card fraud generally comes in two forms: in-store fraud and card-not-present fraud. In the first situation, a thief has your credit card in her hand and uses it at a payment terminal just as you would. In the other scenario, a thief may or may not have a physical card, because all he needs to make an online or over-the-phone transaction is your card number, expiration date and security code (sometimes, he might need your name and billing ZIP code, too). People who steal electronic credit card data or buy stolen data off the black market can manufacture fake cards and get away with in-store fraud. If your card is in your wallet and you receive a notification from your credit card company saying your card has been fraudulently used in a store, restaurant or other bricks-and-mortar location, that's probably what happened.

U.S. Retail Fraud Survey Reveals Surge In Loss From Cash Theft

An Excerpt from the Keynote Speech at the OROCC Conference

Average ORC case value swells over last three years - as reported in the Daily  The average case value over the last three years: in 2012 it was $460K, in 2013 it was $987K, and this year it's $1.9M, which is getting close to the NRF's recent ORC survey showing the average case value being $2.8 million, with 13% of retailers estimating the value to be more than $5 million. But remember this is only representative of what is publically reported by the news and courts and obviously offers a very restricted and controlled view of the problem. But with 26 states having ORC laws and more and more reporters learning about ORC themselves by reporting on it and seeing it in the courts, we'll continue to see these reports increase over time, which give us a much better tool to measure actual court cases.

Organized gang hits Temecula warehouse for $200,000 in electronics
A team of thieves took its time burglarizing a Temecula warehouse recently, using a forklift to load 26 pallets of electronics worth more than $200,000 onto a semi truck, authorities said.

Riverside County sheriff's officials said the Aug. 31 break-in happened at Evertek, a computer and peripherals distributor on Business Park Drive. Sgt. Dean Spivacke said no arrests have been made. The theft wasn't discovered until Sept. 2 when employees returned to work after the Labor Day weekend, search warrant records show. The facility manager arrived to find the alarm activated, a back door forced open and the communications line cut. Now, investigators are searching for what they believe is an experienced, organized group of cargo thieves. (Source pe.com)
