FBI Replaces Recent EMV Chip Security Warning With New One,
Encourage Retailers to Adopt Additional Security Measures
The FBI's warning Friday about cybersecurity risks associated with EMV (Europay,
MasterCard and Visa) chip technology Homeland Security Today reported on, was
pulled and replaced Saturday with a
new Public Service Announcement (PSA) stating that, "While EMV cards offer
enhanced security, the FBI is warning law enforcement, merchants and the general
public that no one technology eliminates fraud and cybercriminals will continue
to look for opportunities to steal payment information." The FBI warned that,
"Although EMV cards provide greater security than traditional magnetic strip
cards, an EMV chip does not stop lost and stolen cards from being used in
stores, or for online or telephone purchases when the chip is not physically
provided to the merchant, referred to as a card-not-present transaction."
In its updated PSA, the FBI urged consumers to use the EMV feature of their new
card wherever merchants accept it to limit the exposure of their sensitive
payment data. The FBI also encouraged "merchants to handle the EMV card and its
data with the same security precautions they use for standard credit cards.
Merchants handling sales over the telephone or via the Internet are encouraged
to adopt additional security measures to ensure the authenticity of cards used
"At a minimum," the FBI said, "merchants should use secure servers and
payment links for all Internet transactions with credit and debit cards, and
information should be encrypted, if possible, to avert hackers from compromising
card information provided by consumers. Credit card information taken over
the telephone or through online means should be protected by the retailer to
include encrypting digital information and securely disposing written credit
70-year-old banned from N.J. Whole Foods finds social media vindication
- LP stop leads to company apology
Attention shoppers: If you are unhappy with how you are treated at a local
supermarket, take your story to Facebook. That's the lesson from 70-year-old
Maplewood woman Marge Dooley, whose story apparently generated so much social
media chatter that it solicited an apology from her local Whole Foods. According
to VillageGreenNJ.com, Dooley was walking out of the Millburn-Union Whole Foods
on Oct. 4 after having purchased about $60 worth of groceries. She was stopped
by store security after she, apparently accidentally, left the store with some
cheese under her purse in her cart, the report said. Dooley was taken to the
back of the store, questioned, photographed, and banned from all Whole Foods in
the tri-state area, the report said.
Dooley's daughter, Margaret Nolan of South Orange, posted to a local Facebook
group about the incident, which generated hundreds of comments questioning the
move. The online post came after Nolan had tried unsuccessfully to talk with
managers at the store, the report said. The social media flurry surrounding the
incident was fiery. "I will never go back to this store, or any WF store, again
after the way you treated a beloved grandmother in our community," one commenter
on the store's Facebook page said. "We don't shake down elderly folks in this
community. It is out of line with our values."
Store officials responded to a negative review on its Facebook page. "Loss
prevention is an unfortunate necessity in retail. At Whole Foods Market, we
strive to achieve the right balance between loss prevention and fostering a
welcoming, friendly environment in all our stores," the Facebook post read.
"This is an unfortunate incident and we have reached out to the shopper directly
to make things right. We are also having discussions with the loss prevention
company at this store to ensure they clearly understand our expectations when it
comes to our customers."
Whole Foods 'Removes and Replaces' Security Company
that Detained 70-year-old shopper
A security company that detained an elderly woman and banned her from all of the
Whole Foods locations in the tri-state area after she walked out of the store
with some cheese left in her cart has been fired, a store spokesman said Monday.
"As promised, we've reviewed our security procedures for the store and the firm
we previously contracted with has been removed and replaced," Michael Sinatra, a
spokesman for the company, said in an email to NJ Advance Media. He did not
respond to questions asking what firm the store had previously contracted with,
or if the swap would affect other Whole Foods locations.
Olive Garden is under fire for kicking out a police officer on his birthday
because he was carrying a gun
Kansas City Police Officer Michael Holsworth says he went to Olive Garden on
Sunday with his family to celebrate his birthday when an employee demanded that
he leave because of his firearm, according to the Kansas City Star. Holsworth
was on duty and wearing his police uniform, he
wrote on Facebook in a post that has been shared more than 12,000 times. His
family was late to arrive, so he was waiting for them at the front of the
restaurant when an employee walked up to him and said, "Sir, we don't allow guns
in here," according to Holsworth. "I actually thought it was a joke at first, so
I asked her, 'Are you serious?'" he wrote. "She replied back with 'Yes.' So I
told her, 'Well, I can leave I guess.' She then replied back, 'Yes, please
Olive Garden has since apologized for the incident. "Officer Holsworth's
experience was unacceptable and completely inconsistent with how we treat
members of law enforcement," Olive Garden spokesman Rich Jeffers told Business
Insider. "Police officers are always welcome at Olive Garden. They serve our
communities, and we love serving them." Jeffers said the company's president,
Dave George, has personally called Holsworth to apologize.
Big Lots faces federal fine after worker injured in Massachusetts store
Big Lots Stores is facing $66,000 in proposed fines from the Occupational
Safety and Health Administration after boxes of patio furniture, piled high
in a stockroom, fell and injured an employee at the Danvers store last week. The
assistant manager was hospitalized on Oct. 2 after he was hit by falling boxes,
some weighing up to 53 pounds each.
Every workplace - including a retail store - has potential hazards," said
Anthony Covello, the agency's acting area director in Andover. "Unsafely stacked
stock resulted in serious and avoidable injuries for this Big Lots employee."
The agency, which oversees workplace safety, "found numerous boxes of stock were
stacked high and in an unstable condition throughout the storeroom," according
to a statement from the Department of Labor. The agency's investigation also
found the stockroom's aisles were clogged by boxes, broken pallets, plastic
wrap, packing materials and pieces of cardboard. These kinds of conditions
"exposed employees to fractures, broken bones, concussion, sprains and other
injuries," according to the agency. An employee might also be trapped and unable
to get out in case of fire. In 2014, the agency cited Big Lots for similar
hazards at stores in New York and Georgia.
Excessive calls for police help with shoplifters will cost businesses
in East Lampeter, PA
Under a new ordinance, businesses in East Lampeter that call township police to
respond to shoplifting incidents will be required to pay for police services
when the number of calls is deemed "excessive." The supervisors adopted the
ordinance Oct. 5 to address "excessive" retail theft calls for police services.
It takes effect Dec. 1. Under the ordinance, businesses will: ● Pay $250 for
police service costs for each shoplifting call in excess of 10 per month. ● Pay
$250 for each shoplifting call that does not result in the filing of a criminal
complaint by the business in excess of two per month. East Lampeter police Chief
John Bowman said the department handles more than 300 calls a year for
shoplifting. "Part of the reasoning behind the ordinance is to have businesses
be mindful of loss-prevention procedures and to encourage them to put measures
in place to help us," he said.

Eastern European Hackers Breach America's Thrift Stores
Another charity store chain has been hacked: America's Thrift Stores, an
organization that operates donations-based thrift stores throughout the
southeast United States, said this week that it recently learned it was the
victim of a malware-driven security breach that targeted software used by a
third-party service provider. "This breach allowed criminals from Eastern
Europe unauthorized access to some payment card numbers," the company's CEO said
statement. "This virus/malware, is one of several infecting retailers across
North America. The U.S. Secret Service tells us that only card numbers and
expiration dates were stolen. They do not believe any customer names, phone
numbers, addresses or email addresses were compromised. This breach may have
affected sales transactions between September 1, 2015 and September 27, 2015.
If you used your credit or debit card during this time to purchase an item at
any America's Thrift Store location, the payment card number information on your
card may have been compromised."
Insider threat set to grow, warns expert security panel
The insider threat - a member of staff who either maliciously or negligently
allows sensitive corporate data to fall into criminal hands - is set to grow in
the next two to three years, a panel of experts has warned. Speaking at
technology conference IP EXPO in London this month, Dave Palmer, director of
technology at security firm Darktrace, named privacy advocate and former US
government employee Edward Snowden as an example of an insider. "I think we've
got more to see from insiders, that's a threat we're starting to become familiar
with, like Edward Snowden for instance," said Palmer. "We're going to see
some insiders either deliberately or accidentally do enough harm to totally
debilitate a business' operations, that will happen within the next three
years," he added.
Troels Oerting, former cyber crime chief at law enforcement agency Europol, and
current group CISO at Barclays, said that his approach to cyber security hasn't
changed since he moved into the private sector. "I work for a bank now not
Europol, but I haven't changed my mind. I look at the adversaries and ask,
what do they want? Money, information? Then I look at the tools. One of those
tools is the insider, it's both a threat and a tool. We'll see more of the
same in future, but with an increased sophistication, and perhaps the
possibility of machine learning and AI being used by cyber criminals to speed up
their attacks against us."
A 'cyber Pearl Harbor' could mean new security mandates
If businesses don't put in place stronger cybersecurity defenses, Congress might
do it for them. That's the warning from Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), a prominent
voice in Congress on IT issues, who cautions if the firms that oversee critical
infrastructure such as the electric grid are hit with a catastrophic cyberattack,
lawmakers could be compelled to impose new regulations that could rankle the
industry. "I will tell you this: In the event of a cyber Pearl Harbor, the
public will demand that Congress regulate, and standards will be imposed and
there'll be no getting around that," Connolly said in remarks at a recent
meeting of the Cloud Computing Advisory Caucus, which he co-chairs. "And if we
want to avoid that, we've got to try to encourage [the] private sector to set
very high standards that they voluntarily agree to try to meet."
Dominos turns quality focus on store network
A few years after a successful marketing campaign where it focused on making a
better pizza, Domino's Pizza is now focusing on making a better store network.
Domino's, is partnering with payment security and redundancy technology provider EchoSat to provide secure communications redundancy for electronic payments data
and business systems to its corporate and franchise stores. The retailer will
employ a wide range of EchoSat wireless solutions to provide critical failover
for its retail footprint across North America. Domino's hopes adding this
additional level of redundancy to the retail network will allow it to continue
to focus on digital channels, which drove 50% of U.S. sales at the end of 2014.

Checkpoint Systems' RF/RFID Antenna Boasts Flexible, Customizable Design
Options, Powerful Use of Data for Apparel Retailers
RF, RFID and Dual-Mode Versions Meet Unique
Retail Needs, Protect Business Investments
N.J. - Oct. 13, 2015 -
Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise
availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced the
EVOLVE MV E10 2.0 antenna, which features a highly customizable design and
the ability to leverage powerful data analytics to empower loss prevention,
operations and merchandising apparel retail professionals.
In addition, The E10 2.0 comes in RF, RFID and dual-mode (RF/RFID) versions to
meet the specific needs of retailers and enables them to future proof their
business investments. For example, by allowing retailers to invest in RFID at a
later point via an RFID upgrade kit, the E10 2.0 enables them to use their
existing electronic article surveillance (EAS) RF solutions today and then use
RFID when the time is right for their businesses. In dual-mode, only one tag is
required for both inventory management and loss prevention.
According to Uwe Sydon, Senior Vice President of Innovation, Checkpoint Systems,
"The E10 2.0 represents a new generation of antenna where style meets substance.
Whether retailers want to adapt to existing store layouts, boost their brand
messages or create a visual deterrent to theft, the E10 2.0 is ready to meet
their needs. In addition, powerful data analytics enhance loss prevention and
Accommodating flexible store designs is one of the drivers of RFID adoption at
apparel retailers. Checkpoint has taken the E10 2.0 to a new level of design
flexibility. The antenna can be used as a sleek see-through acrylic design, or
can be changed instantly to become an advertisement panel for a store's
products, simply by inserting graphic panels that are held in place by the
elegant standard display. Advertising panels serve as a low-cost means to
promote in-store campaigns or the brand itself.
The new antenna also is EMOPrint ready, which means retailers can obtain from
Checkpoint full color textile panels that are easy to modify on the E10 2.0.
EMOPrint improves the appearance of the antenna, making the store entrance much
more appealing, an important factor for apparel retailers.
Lastly, retailers can further customize the antenna by ordering from Checkpoint
full color graphic prints that are applied to the antenna base plates and RFID
elements, to create a unique branded antenna solution. Some antenna areas are
also available in color options to meet a store's overall design scheme. In
addition, the side of the antenna can be fully illuminated to create a high
impact visual effect.
Powerful Data Analytics
Checkpoint's data analytics for the E10 2.0 help merchandising and operations
staff better understand store traffic, and ensure that store associates leverage RF/RFID investments appropriately, comply with store shoplifting policies and
have systems always turned on and operating properly.
Integrated Vistor Counting is embedded in the new system, offering highly
sophisticated functionality, analytics and reporting to improve profitability.
It enables retailers to maximize the potential of their sales floor space,
calculate shopper conversion rates and improve staffing allocations.

Security, Data Breaches Slow Down Mobile Payments Adoption
The security vulnerabilities typically associated with mobile payments are
likely holding back adoption. Nearly nine in 10 respondents (87%) expected to
see an increase in mobile payment data breaches over the next 12 months, and
almost half indicated lost or stolen devices and the use of public Wi-Fi as a
significant security risk when it comes to mobile payments. Security has long
been one of the top issues associated with mobile payments. In June 2015
research from Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) and Wirecard, conducted by On Device
Research, 11% of mobile media users worldwide in Q3 2013 and Q3 2014 said they
did not trust the security of mobile payments and indicated it as a barrier to
making payments via their mobile phone.
Could Card Networks Take Bitcoin Mainstream?
To cross the chasm from early adopters to mass adoption, merchant acceptance has
to be the norm, not the exception. When bitcoin can be used to buy groceries and
pay bills where people live and work, it will start to have utility for the
masses. Until then, it will remain a niche application. It's time to consider
inter-operability and connect bitcoin to existing debit card networks. By
linking bitcoin to these networks, consumers get immediate access to over 28
million merchants around the world. Bitcoin debit cards are still uncommon and
many programs have been unsanctioned and short-lived, often cobbled together by
companies with little or no experience in this (regulated and conservative)
space. Cards can become a key enabler for bitcoin companies, especially if they
become long-standing offerings.

MI: Traffic stop leads to $15,000 recovery an 2 Changed with Check Fraud and
Organized Retail Theft
Two Indiana men have been arraigned in Wexford County on stolen property charges
after they were stopped for speeding in Cadillac Thursday night. Tige Romain

Education is a broad term, usually defined by an individual as a singular focus
with an end result that oftentimes stagnates the brain and limits horizons.
Reaching milestones is incredibly important, but keeping your curiosity and
wonderment is the key to reaching beyond. No singular degree or certification

realization that if you don't know something, you go find someone who does and
learn it from them.
