Obama Urges Retailers to Mandate Chip-and Pin - Signs Executive Order to bolster federal credit card security  On Friday, at the headquarters of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, President Obama signed an Executive Order that will add chip-and-PIN protections (EMV) to federal credit cards starting in January. The President encouraged the financial and retail sectors to follow suit. According to the White House, Wal-Mart, as well as Target and Home Depot, are just a few of the larger retail outlets that will be transitioning to chip-and-PIN in 2015. Furthermore, American Express is expected to launch a $10 million program geared towards helping small businesses upgrade their payment processing. "Retailers applaud the President's action to advance card security," said RILA president Sandy Kennedy. "Today's announcement should serve as a catalyst for widespread adoption of chip and PIN card security." The National Retail Federation also praised the move. "We applaud the administration for taking proactive and positive steps by adopting PIN and chip technology for government-issued debit and credit cards, among other things," stated NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay. chainstoreage.com whitehouse.gov

Station Island, NY Judge dismisses $400 million wrongful-death suit stemming from alleged shoplifting incident at Burlington Coat Factory  A Port Richmond woman has no legal standing to file a $400 million lawsuit on behalf of her daughter and granddaughter, who were believed to have drowned in a swollen North Carolina creek three years ago while being chased by a store security officer, ruled a federal judge. In dismissing Annette Johnson's lawsuit against Burlington Coat Factory, Senior District Judge Edward R. Korman said she has not received the requisite letters of administration nor been named executor of the estates of her daughter, Gracie Nell Johnson, and granddaughter, Rianna Tarell Johnson, who are former borough residents. "Because (Annette Johnson) is not the administrator of the two estates on whose behalf the complaint is filed, although she has had more than three years to obtain letters of administration, she has no standing to bring this action," wrote Korman, who sits in Brooklyn. A legal source said Ms. Johnson could re-file the suit if and when she's appointed administrator of her kin's estates, provided she does so within any applicable statute of limitations to commence the action. Ms. Johnson filed the wrongful-death and civil-rights lawsuit in August of last year in Brooklyn federal court. She alleged her daughter, Gracie Nell Johnson, 43, and her grandaughter, Rianna Tarell Johnson, 16, were "savagely beat(en)" to death while being pursued from Burlington Coat Factory in Charlotte on Aug. 5, 2011, on suspicion of shoplifting $39 in merchandise. silive.com

U.S. Data Breach Notification Law Unlikely in 2014
Despite President Obama's urgent call to lawmakers to enact a national data breach notification law, such legislation will not likely be voted upon before the current Congress recesses. Obama, in signing an executive order to promote speedy adoption of chip-and-PIN credit cards, called on Congress "to act with urgency on data breach legislation" because of a slew of recent high-profile data breaches. "And even though I'm taking action today without Congress, Congress needs to do its part, as well," Obama said. "Today, data breaches are handled by dozens of separate state laws, and it's time to have one clear national standard that brings certainty to businesses and keeps consumers safe." But despite the president's call and growing interest in Congress in enacting a national data breach notification law, no such bill has reached either the Senate or House floors in the current Congress. People familiar with the legislative process point out that business groups and consumer advocates with allies in Congress cannot agree on key provisions of data breach notification measures. Generally, businesses want less stringent data breach notification rules than do consumer advocates. govinfosecurity.com

President Obama's credit card rejected at New York restaurant
According to The Washington Post on Friday, even the leader of our nation has a problem sometimes when it comes to credit cards. President Barack Obama gave remarks at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau while he was there to sign an executive order to protect consumers from identity theft. During his remarks, the president told the audience that his credit card was declined at a restaurant in New York last month, but First Lady Michelle had her card and paid the bill for the meal they had just enjoyed. He reasoned that he probably didn't use the card enough, and he guess the waitress thought some fraud was going on. President Obama concluded, "Even I'm affected by this." examiner.com

MasterCard and Zwipe launch first contactless, fingerprint payment card  MasterCard has partnered with Norwegian startup Zwipe to launch a contactless payment card that has an fingerprint authentication sensor. This is the first card to combine biometric security authentication with contactless payment technology. This may be a solution to the challenge of finding a payment option that does not compromise security. "We should be able to identify ourselves without having to use passwords or PIN numbers. Biometric authentication can help us achieve this. However, our challenge is to ensure the technology offers robust security, simplicity of use, and convenience for the customer," Ajay Bhalla, president of enterprise security solutions at MasterCard, said in a statement. Cardholder fingerprint data are stored directly on the card, not in an external database. The fingerprint would replace the need for a PIN number entry. cnbc.com

Spike in Malware Attacks on Aging ATMs
A recent spike in malicious software capable of infecting and jackpotting ATMs is shifting the focus away from innovative, high-tech skimming devices toward the rapidly aging ATM infrastructure in the United States and abroad. Last month, media outlets in Malaysia reported that organized crime gangs had stolen the equivalent of about USD $1 million with the help of malware they'd installed on at least 18 ATMs across the country. Several stories about the Malaysian attack mention that the ATMs involved were all made by ATM giant NCR. To learn more about how these attacks are impacting banks and the ATM makers, KrebsOnSecurity reached out to Owen Wild, NCR's global marketing director, security compliance solutions. Wild said ATM malware is here to stay and is on the rise. "What we're finding is these types of attacks are occurring on standalone, unattended types of units where there is much easier access to the top of the box than you would normally find in the wall-mounted or attended models." krebsonsecurity.com

Cowboys' Randle gets underwear deal after theft arrest
Dallas Cowboys reserve running back Joseph Randle, who was recently arrested for shoplifting underwear and cologne, landed an endorsement deal with MeUndies. After Randle was arrested for stealing from a Texas Dillard's last Monday, the Cowboys fined him $29,500. ESPN reported that MeUndies is giving Randle enough sponsorship money to pay the fine and supply him with underwear. Randle is reportedly donating $15,000 worth of underwear and clothing to children in need through the sponsorship. "Joseph felt the need to turn a negative situation into a positive and teamed up with MeUndies to give back to his community and help families in need," MeUndies head of marketing Dan King said. "As a young company, MeUndies is faced with difficult challenges all the time. It's up to us to turn a negative situation into a positive one, almost on a daily basis. How you learn from your mistakes fast is how you find success in our business and those lessons are applicable in all walks of life." torontosun.com

Mojix Announces Key US Patents for Sensor Networks and Passive RFID

Last week's most popular news article --

Toronto CN: Security cameras captured Eaton Centre shooter 'dozens and dozens and dozens' of times, court hears  It may go down as the most meticulously documented crime in Canadian history: A shooting in a busy mall on a bustling summer night caught in minute detail on camera after camera after camera. From the time Christopher Husbands entered Toronto's Eaton Centre - a tourist magnet smack in the middle of downtown - on June 2, 2012 until the time he ran out less than an hour later, he was tracked. Cameras caught him coming in. They showed him buying skates. They saw him pull a gun. They watched him kill two men. Husbands has pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree murder and five others of aggravated assault linked to the shooting that night. (His bullets also wounded five bystanders). His lawyers admit he pulled the trigger. But they deny he planned to kill anyone that day. On Tuesday, the second day of his trial, Husbands watched passively from the middle of the courtroom as jurors watched clip after clip of the shooting and its aftermath. For a time, he doodled on a notepad. Occasionally, he looked back into the gallery, where his father sat on one side and relatives of his victims on the other. nationalpost.com

Apple Pay Faces Lighter Compliance Than Paypal, Google
Apple Inc. didn't have to set up an anti-money laundering program for its new Apple Pay service set to launch Monday, experts said, in contrast with competitors such as PayPal or Google. The service, which Apple first announced in September, doesn't collect transaction information that can be tied to a user, and isn't itself involved in a transaction at all - money moves directly between a user, the merchant and the user's bank, Apple said Thursday. As a result, Apple Pay comes under much less regulatory scrutiny than other mobile payment market players. wsj.com

Sears distribution center clerk steals $3.7 million in merchandise, arrested in Logan, NJ  Police here have charged a woman for allegedly selling stolen goods out of the Sears Distribution Center at 2100 Center Square Rd. Logan officers arrested Kim Watson, 32, of Clementon, on Friday. A long-term investigation by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office, Logan police and Sears' loss prevention team led detectives to believe Watson, an inventory clerk, had been taking cash payment and barter services in exchange for high-end merchandise. That merchandise, police said, included everything from bedding to kitchen appliances. The operation served a network of people around the tri-state area. The merchandise totaled roughly $3.7 million in retail value, leaving the Sears company with about a $2.6 million net loss. Watson was charged with second degree theft. She was held at the Salem County Jail in default of $50,000 bail. Capt. Robert Leash of the Logan police said the investigation was ongoing. "We are still looking into this," he said. "We know she had a network. She didn't do this alone, and these people knew they were receiving stolen goods." nj.com   Investigation Ongoing, More information to follow tomorrow

UK: Mother and daughter crime duo sold thousands in stolen goods on Facebook
Dawn Bainbridge and daughter Claire Bainbridge were locked up by a crown court judge yesterday for their part in a 'well planned and professional operation'. The pair had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal. Another daughter, Caitlyn Bainbridge, has also pleased guilty to the same charge and will be sentenced next month. Newcastle Crown Court was told the three stole more than $11270.00 of goods from retailers across the North East and Yorkshire from January 1 until June 4 of this year, before selling them on Facebook for less than their value under the business name Designer Goods North East. The scam was uncovered when a investigator from Next made two test purchases from the Facebook site. She received the clothes from Caitlyn Bainbridge by post and matched them up with unique store codes on the goods - which revealed they had been stolen. Police carried out a raid at the family home in The Crescent, and found a haul of clothing worth $10744.00. A total of $2,341 of goods was from Next stores; $1,032 from House of Fraser stores; $1.078 from Marks and Spencer; $624 from British Home Stores; $739 from Hollister, $584 of goods from Asda and $417 from M and C stores.

Australian Criminals pay up to $30,000 for valid identity documents from vulnerable people  A report being tabled in the Australia's federal Parliament on Tuesday will urge people to protect their passports, driving licenses, Medicare cards, and other identity documents.

It also details the going rate criminals are paying for fake identity documents. The report says criminal groups pay up to $30,000 for a legitimately issued passport bearing fake details. Professional forgers charge $1500 to alter a genuine passport.

Analog to IP: Discover the Truth about Video Migration

By: Scott Hendrickson
Video Product Manager
Checkview Corporation

Truth #1: It is Cost Effective.
In today’s world of technology, balancing the performance of a video system with budget constraints has been a challenge that has kept many systems in the analog realm. The lower cost and performance of analog video may allow Loss Prevention Managers to put more cameras in more stores, but with the declining costs associated with current IP cameras, higher resolutions and system flexibility with open architected network video recorders, the case to move from analog to IP is a strong one. While some retailers can make the jump to IP with complete replacements of existing video infrastructure, most find that a migration path from analog to IP is done in stages and proper planning for the future. Consider the following key components regarding your present video system and make the move towards an IP video system.

Truth #2: Cabling is Key.
The first item to consider is the current cabling infrastructure. Coaxial cable with a power wire? Structured cabling, Category 3, 5, 5e, 6 or other? If you are still installing analog video systems with coaxial cable, then at the very minimum, you need to move into Ethernet standard Category 5e or 6 (Unshielded Twisted Pair – UTP) using baluns to transmit analog video, power and data (for PTZ’s) as soon as possible. Baluns are small transceivers that live at each end of a UTP run to convert the analog signal and transmit over Cat5e/6. Different baluns are used for varying run lengths, but it is important to know for future IP considerations that Ethernet standards have a maximum run distance of 100M (328’) between IP devices (switch, PC, IP Camera). If you are installing analog today with baluns, to be ready for IP in the future, the Cat5e/6 cabling must adhere to TIA Ethernet standards of 100M or less, or include proper intermediate junctions and proper Ethernet terminations.

Active listening is absolutely critical if you really expect to influence change or modify behavior. You've got to hear what they're saying before you can plan or expect to do virtually anything. And hearing what they're saying is not simply hearing the words it's all about hearing the meaning and the intentions behind the words. Because words have a tendency to hide the true meanings and beliefs. As truth is often cloaked in humor so is meaning hidden in words. With the number one obstacle being one's self hearing is often drown out by how we want others to view us. So if you can leave your self at the door so to speak you can then begin to focus on hearing what they're saying.
