LPRC's 2015 Impact Conference Wraps Up in Florida

Research provides vital information on loss dynamics, protective outcomes, best practices, and hidden effects. Research also provides retailers an opportunity to assess the real and financial impact, if any, there has been on product loss. The Loss Prevention Research Council has put together an annual conference that helps retailers and their solutions partners better employ research tools to assess the real-world impact their LP efforts have on sales, crime, and loss levels. The 2015 Impact Conference featured two-plus days of informative and engaging presentations, multiple breakout working groups, an anonymized panel of active theft offenders, and much more. Held this week at the University of Florida in Gainesville, this educational event provided attendees with valuable insights and new research-based approaches to help reduce retail crime and increase sales.

Attendees were presented research from the LPRC's 11 working groups and action teams, which include multiple retailers interacting with solution partners and scientists to deliver 2-4 go-to-market projects each year. The groups' individual areas of focus include: Product Protection, Supply Chain Protection, Video Solutions, Future of Loss Prevention, Organized Retail Crime, Data Analytics, Specialty Retail, Big Box Specialty, Food and Drug, Violent Crime, and Retail Fraud. Attendees were also given the opportunity to work in teams to apply the research approaches to current loss issues with the help of expert facilitators.

The event also provided a little taste of Vegas with the IMPACT Conference Casino Night, held at the Straughn Center and sponsored by Protection 1/Cam Connections. Those feeling lucky were treated to a fun night of cards, refreshments and casual networking. (See pictures below)

The conference wrapped up today with a presentation by Dr. Read Hayes and Mike Giblin of the LPRC covering the three main research areas that members voted for at the start of the year. These three areas include "Predicting employee deviance using offender insights", "ePVM effectiveness over time", and "Three theoretical advances in creating more effective product protection devices: Unpredictable AP. Associate Notification. Assumed Sophistication."

Congratulations to everyone at the LPRC and all sponsors and attendees
for another successful Impact Conference!

Amazon Sued Again For Not Disclosing Background Reports
A man denied a job at Amazon.com based on an allegedly inaccurate negative background report says the online retailer violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act by not warning him or allowing him to correct the record, according to a proposed class action complaint filed Tuesday in New Jersey federal court.

Theo Feldstein says Amazon withdrew its offer for a position as a fulfillment associate at its New Jersey facility based on a standardized background report conducted by a third-party company, but never warned him, provided him a copy of the report or allowed him to dispute the report's claims, thus violating the FCRA's mandatory pre-adverse action notification requirement, according to the complaint.

Feldstein says he applied for the Amazon job in April and sat down for an in-person interview not long after. Following the interview, he received a contingent offer of employment for the fulfillment associate position, which he accepted, according to the complaint.

In May, Amazon emailed him to say it was in the process of reviewing a background report. Feldstein says the report Amazon got back from Accurate Background Inc. listed criminal convictions that he was never convicted of, which caused Amazon to stop the application process. The only reason he found out was by logging into Amazon's online application portal, Feldstein alleges. The e-retailer finally emailed him back at the end of May confirming that his background report had come up negative, but did not include the report or a statement of his FCRA rights. law360.com

Compliance Officers Well Paid, New Survey Shows
A new salary survey from the  Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics shows chief compliance officers as a well-paid profession where professional qualifications and international responsibilities can boost earnings more.

The average salary for a chief compliance officer who works in a sector outside of health care and who manages at least 26% of their organization's legal and regulatory risk was $150,207, and their total compensation was $179,753.

"What's happening is corporate America is seeing that the position they once thought might be more of a mid-level is more of a higher level," This will be even more evident as companies digest the U.S. Department of Justice's Yates memo and its threat to hold corporate leadership criminally responsible for their company's compliance failures and violations, he said. As they realize the risks, companies are likely to consider the compliance officer more of an asset to help them stay out of trouble.

CCOs who are also certified public accountants have an average salary of $188,700, or $30,000 more than one who is a certified compliance and ethics professional, according to the survey, which was conducted in June. Chief compliance officers who managed a staff or 30 or more made an average of $202,346, while those who ran programs with a budget of $2 million or more made $223,375. For those who oversee compliance in 11 or more countries, the average salary was $227,710, compared with $156,600 for those with programs in two to 10 nations.

"We're going to see over the next 10 years leadership take compliance more seriously and hire more quality, experienced, educated, trained and certified individuals and being a CPA is an excellent background for this profession." wsj.com

Retail's Burning Question: Trouble for Specialty Retailers? 
More Chapter 11's Coming!!!! 
If you're in the apparel business this is a must read article
Although the individual paths to bankruptcy tell different stories, the recent Chapter 11 filings of American Apparel and Quisilver Inc. share one thing in common. Being a specialty retailer is a tricky business under current market conditions.

Millennials are aloof when it comes to brand loyalty. So what's hot now becomes too cold to sustain itself, say analysts and industry observers. "American retail, in general, is extremely difficult. The growth is almost non-existent outside of activewear and if you're looking at sportswear as a category then it's extremely price-sensitive and brand-sensitive. It's a problem across the board."

Michael McGrail, chief operating officer at Tiger Capital Group in New York, said that with mall traffic declining and showing no signs of coming back, "I expect a long, steady flow of retailer bankruptcies. Today's younger consumers were practically born learning to shop online many are simply not mall shoppers. Amid these pressures, lower-tier malls will continue to struggle to keep strong retailers interested in space, which will further dampen traffic in those properties."

"Generally speaking, certain tween retailers and others that cater to the younger crowd will continue to see sales shrink in the coming years and, thus, be candidates for bankruptcy. "The way people shop is increasingly less driven by brick-and-mortar stores and is moving increasingly online," she said adding that retailers who are overstored are more vulnerable.

As teens move away from logo-driven retailers - Abercrombie, etc. - we will see more store closures that will lead to Chapter 11 filings," Solanki said. "Consumers are spending more of their dollars towards restaurants rather than apparel - with the exception of athletic and casual wear. Also, the upper-middle class is slowing down in spending compared to the aspirational customers." wwd.com

Hurricane Joaquin's Double-Edged Sword - Drove retail sales in Northeast
In the Northeast, what was initially feared as a blow from Joaquin turned out to be a boost, as the storm veered out into the Atlantic Ocean and failed to hit major population centers. But the cold, rainy conditions it left in its wake pushed consumers to the mall, helping retailers recoup some of the losses they experienced in other markets.

The weather in the Northeast. "It should have been really good for business. It was actually an opportunity to sell fall product. It was a little bit of an anomaly in that a storm is usually a big net negative for softlines, but this was more of a positive."

Charleston was especially hard hit. On King Street, where retailers such as women's clothier Anne's, Brooks Brothers and Francesca's Collections are located, sidewalks were lined with sandbags to prevent damage from rising water.

A Wal-Mart spokesman said stores in Southern states were most affected by the storm. "All our facilities in the area of the hurricane are now open," he said. "We're working with state officials and the Red Cross and providing assistance. In South Carolina yesterday [Monday], there was a request from the state for water and we delivered four truckloads of water. We are still fully engaged to assist customers in the area."

The hurricane's economic impact was initially believed to be in the billions of dollars, including property damage, disruption in manufacturing and lost sales. "In the grand scheme, it had a positive impact because it drove consumers to stores in the Northeast." wwd.com

Saks Dodges Class Action Alleging Shortchanged Refunds
A California judge dismissed on Tuesday a putative class action alleging luxury retailer Saks Inc. violated consumer protection and unfair competition laws by excluding sales tax from refunds issued to customers who don't bring a receipt, ruling the complaint should have been lodged with a state tax agency.

Moshiri filed suit in June 2014, alleging she returned four items without an original receipt to Saks' outlets in Beverly Hills and Camarillo, only to be told that they can't include sales tax in the refund without a receipt.  law360.com

UK's Tesco in 'secret talks' with fraud office over
accounting black hole over vendor rebates & payments
May choose to admit wrongdoing - pay a hefty fine to avoid criminal sanctions
In August, it was revealed that former Tesco chief executive Philip Clarke was to be quizzed by the SFO over the accounting scandal, which caused shares in the supermarket to slump and led to a string of profit warnings. The 55-year-old will be interviewed by prosecutors along with former commercial director Kevin Grace. Several of Tesco's suppliers could also be asked to give evidence on the matter. Tesco revealed in September last year that it had discovered a black hole in its profits, throwing the company into the biggest crisis in its history. The shortfall was linked to Tesco's commercial income, which is made up of payments and rebates from suppliers.

If a settlement is reached, Tesco would be required to pay a fine or compensation and co-operate in the prosecution of individuals related to the wrongdoing, it has been claimed. telgraph.co.uk

Iranian Hackers May Be Lurking on LinkedIn, Report Says

Shop.org Digital Summit 2015 - How technology is changing everything
Self-driving semitruck's & drones as delivery vehicles -

Will have "a profound effect on retail."
In 2012, 5 percent of in-store sales were influenced by mobile. Just two years later, 28 percent of in-store sales were influenced by mobile, and 49 percent were impacted by digital overall. "We have never seen so many technologies moving so fast, doubling in their capabilities," said Salim Ismail, executive director of Singularity University and former VP at Yahoo. Experts across various industries are not even predicting or tracking this exponential rate of change.

Another technology sure to impact retail is 3D printing. Ismail predicts the technology will heavily disrupt the supply chain and the retail industry within the next five years. fierceretail.com

Hackers getting in via the SaaS explosion
A new report by Palo Alto Networks, based on data from more than 7,000 enterprises worldwide showcases how attackers are attempting to infect organizations.

Findings highlight the explosion in adoption of SaaS based applications, with the potential to introduce new security risks, or allow unauthorized access to sensitive data. SaaS-based applications explode in popularity - The number of SaaS-based applications observed on enterprise networks has grown 46 percent from 2012 to 2015, and now includes more than 316 applications.

Email attachments continue their toxicity - Over 40 percent of email attachments were found to be malicious.

With the increasing popularity of SaaS applications, security teams are cautioned to familiarize themselves with "shadow IT" - a trend occurring in enterprise networks in which users use SaaS and other applications without IT’s knowledge or approval - and its potential to weaken security policies. net-security.org

Cisco disrupts $60M ransomware biz
Cisco this week says it disabled a distributor of the Angler ransomware exploit kit, a program that holds victim machines hostage via encryption. The catch disrupted a global ransomware operation that netted $60 million annually for the perpetrators, Cisco states in a blog post. During research, Cisco's Talos security unit discovered that computers infected with the Angler Exploit Kit were connecting to servers at Limestone Networks, a Dallas hosting provider. Angler encrypts victim machines until the victims pay a sum - a ransom -- to have them decrypted.

"This is a significant blow to the emerging hacker economy where ransomware and the black market sale of stolen IP, credit card info and personally identifiable information are generating hundreds of millions of dollars annually," Cisco stated in the blog post. csoonline.com

Quarter of firms can't tell how hackers get in - Emails & Web Surfing is how they get in!
The majority of large companies have experienced a breach over the past twelve months, but almost a quarter, 23 percent, of firms do not know how the hackers got in, according to a new survey. Of the firms who did know how the attackers got in, 67 percent said that malware had infiltrated their networks through email, 63 percent named web surfing as a vector of infection, 12 percent cited cloud apps or social media, and 4 percent pointed to instant messaging. csoonline.com

ID Theft Victims Remain Vulnerable Long After A Hack
A study from ID Analytics shows that much like a stolen credit card, fraudsters exploit identities rapidly across multiple enterprises to monetize the identity before the consumer and businesses become aware of the compromise. Additionally, the compromised identities initially tend to appear at multiple businesses within the same industry, but over a longer period these identities are seen moving industries, likely in an attempt to defeat traditional fraud detection tools. Findings indicate that a compromised identity remains at increased risk, long after the initial fraud. Criminals will assert previously compromised identities at a rate 3.4 times higher than their non-compromised peers.

"Fraudsters strike fast and hard. Having access to up-to-the-minute transaction data from sources across industries is critical in detecting and preventing fraud activity," said Scott Carter, CEO, ID Analytics. "Often, in-house solutions or vendor tools that rely on credit bureau or public records data will only detect the compromised identity after the confluence of fraud activity has occurred."  infosecurity-magazine.com

Digital Effects On In-Store Shopping: 59% Shoppers Look For Coupons Online As Pre-Store Digital Activity [Report]
According to the latest Nielsen report, about half of products buying decisions people make are spontaneous and unplanned. This provides brands an ample opportunity to influence and connect people online that could eventually drive them to non-replenish purchase. The report highlights online elements that influence non-replenish purchases and what are the top online activities of shoppers before they actually hit the store. It reveals that online resources - includes hearing and researching on social media, looking on retail websites, looking at brand manufacturer website, looking on coupon websites - have a greater impact on such non-replenish purchases than recommendation or ads. Nearly 7% of time shoppers recall using such online resources. Coupons and Promotions, however, have the greatest impact on such purchases. 15% of time shoppers recall a brand through coupons, followed by Promotions with 14%. Therefore, brands must adopt coupon and promotion driven sales strategies to influence the decision of shoppers during non-replenish purchases. dazeinfo.com

EMV Chip Cards Shifting Retailers' Risk to Online Commerce
While the shift to EMV will help alleviate a lot of retailers' in-store payment risk when it comes to counterfeit credit cards, the new chip-card standard will likely push fraudsters online. This phenomenon has already been observed globally in other markets that have made the transition to EMV cards. As more and more of those implementations go live, fraudsters will be less successful using fraudulent credit cards in stores, making online transactions an easier target and a mounting risk factor - especially for retailers who specialize in selling in big-ticket merchandise. With a remote transaction, the seller can't see the customer, check their identification, or verify that the customer's method of payment is even truly in his or her name. Now that brick-and-mortar retail uses chip cards, the disparity is even wider between the certainty that in-store purchases are bona fide and the uncertainty associated with online purchases. EMV chips cannot be read or verified for online shopping. The new standard ostensibly creates more risk for ecommerce, and provides no clear solution to address this risk while placing the burden of further enhancing fraud prevention services into the laps of online retailers. multichannelmerchant.com

ORC ringleader of $2.5M theft ring selling on eBay gets 7 yrs. prison in Sacramento - Stole 17,000 items
Jason Samuel Schroeder pleaded guilty in March to interstate transportation of stolen property. The proceeds from the sales were deposited into a PayPal account controlled by Schroeder, and then laundered through ATM withdrawals, cash-back purchases and the purchase of more than $600,000 in money orders.

"Schroeder - well known to loss-prevention professionals in California and other states - brazenly and habitually shoplifted from retailers for the sole purpose of selling the stolen merchandise to unsuspecting customers online," said FBI Special Agent Brandon Simpson. "The ring's impact was significant and forever changed how a variety of goods are displayed at retail locations" in California and Oregon.

According to Schroeder's plea agreement, in October 2012 a sporting goods company with stores in Sacramento reported to the FBI that an eBay account was listing items for sale that the company suspected were stolen. Investigation revealed the account was Schroeder's, although he held it in the name of a confederate. Since 2009, it had listed more than 17,000 items for sale, including sporting goods, household goods, recreational equipment and pet-care products. Virtually all of the new items were stolen by Schroeder or other members of the ring of thieves and sold at a discount. Schroeder, 36, is the sixth person sentenced to prison in the case. sacbee.com

N.Y. Fraud gang busted in Caroline County, VA at Loves Truck Stop with 100 cloned cards
Three men were arrested Tuesday in a cigarette and illegal credit card bust in Caroline County, and the men were all from out of town. "All are from New York, one American and two Jamaican citizens," said Lt. Travis Nutter. Alert clerks at the truck stop tipped deputies off around 12:30 Tuesday afternoon that the credit cards the three men were allegedly trying to use to buy cigarettes were fraudulent.

"After further investigation, and a search of the suspects' vehicle, deputies found more than 100 credit cards, laptop, tablets and skimmers," said Nutter. Deputies believe Rendell Bobb, Odain Richards and Devon McKnight used the skimming device to imprint blank credit cards with stolen banking information downloaded from underground sites online. Sheriff Tony Lippa said what happened Tuesday may have longer tentacles that will most likely lead to federal agencies' involvement. "It's tied to something bigger," he said. "The vehicle was registered to Georgia and tracks them to New York." wtvr.com

Aurora, Ohio, PD battles ORC at Aurora Farms Premium Outlets with grant from Ohio Criminal Justice Services
A special plain-clothed overtime police detail was able to catch numerous shoplifters this summer at Aurora Farms Premium Outlets, Police Chief Brian Byard said Oct. 1. Overall, officers worked 176 overtime hours and recovered more than $10,000 in stolen merchandise, starting June 5 after the city received a $12,000 grant from Ohio Criminal Justice Services.

"Our goal was to combat organized retail theft rings by arresting shoplifters, reduce the number of shoplifting incidents and educate retail associates," Byard said. "Over the course of the three months, the enforcement action resulted in numerous arrests for theft and receiving stolen property, and the seizure of thousands of dollars in counterfeit currency." Byard said those targeted were "professional shoplifters" carrying booster bags and the tools necessary to remove security sensors.

"We are happy to see that some of the habitual offenders have been caught and prosecuted accordingly," Byard said. "We hope to receive additional grant funding in the future for other details around the city." auroraadvocate.com

Probable-cause affidavits filed with the charges against Euriah San Paolo, of Joplin, allege that he had two sets of pliers, a flashlight, a crowbar and a camouflage hat in his possession. A cleaning crew in the store told police that they triggered the alarm when they heard someone trying to get in through the back door. sacbee.com

UK: London Police praise public for their vital role in catching $45,000 Rolex watch theft gang
But what started out as an ordinary morning took an extraordinary and unexpected turn when three mopeds tore down London Street and screeched to a halt outside Winsor Bishop to execute their pre-planned raid. The revving of moped engines, the smashing of glass and din of shop alarms, together with the billowing of smoke from the store's security system, combined to create a scene of chaos during which worried members of the public played their part in bringing the gang to justice. Police received more than 40 emergency calls about the incident, which happened at about 10.50am on August 5, while members of the public also caught parts of the raid on mobile phones. Det Con Katie Barnard said: "Thanks to the prompt calls from the public who witnessed the incident and the efforts of officers on the ground and in the air, we were able to detain all six suspects within an hour of the first 999 call being made. This case is an excellent example of how, by working together with the police, the public has a significant role in helping keep their communities safe." edp24.co.uk

No matter what you do, there's always two sides in every stadium, both supported by their beliefs, convictions and opinions and both equally opposed in their desire to win. While winning is everyone's objective, how you play the game is in actuality more important. Regardless of how the other side plays, one must always remember that afterwards regardless of the win or loss everyone respects the one who played like a professional and gave it their best.
