The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

Houston PD's Convenience Store Task Force & Greater Houston Retailer Association Honored for Dramatically reducing violent crime  The Houston Police Department and the Greater Houston Retailers Association received the 2014 Michael Shanahan Award for Excellence in Public-Private Cooperation from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Security Industry Association (SIA) on Oct. 26 during a ceremony in Orlando, Fla. The Shanahan Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the development and implementation of public-private cooperation in public safety. The Houston Police Department and the Greater Houston Retailers Association (GHRA) were honored for a project that dramatically reduced violent crime at convenience stores. The program began in 2007, when robberies, aggravated assaults and murders at the city's convenience stores reached record levels. The police department formed a Convenience Store Task Force, and a 2008 ordinance required all convenience stories in the city to register with the task force, at no charge, and to implement certain security measures, including installing video surveillance and alarm systems, using drop safes and working with the police to enforce trespassing laws. Between 2007 and 2013, murders at those locations dropped by 70 percent; sexual assaults, 75 percent; robberies, 71 percent; aggravated assaults, 59 percent; burglary, 72 percent; and thefts and shoplifting, 82 percent. prweb.com

In-store robots coming to Lowe's
The robots are coming. US-based DIY retailer Lowe's will be utilising autonomous retail service robots in-store later this year. Lowe's Innovation Labs team has developed the technology with the aim of helping make customers' shopping experiences more efficient. The robots will also aid shoppers in navigating stores and provide instant access to information about home improvement projects. As an initial test to see how robotics technology can benefit customers and employees, the new innovation, called OSHbot, will be trialed in a Lowe's-owned Orchard Supply Hardware store in San Jose, California, during the forthcoming holiday season.  essentialretail.com

Home Depot expects $27M from insurers for data breach - partly offsetting $62M pay out in attack related costs  While the $90 million Target anticipates receiving would take a chunk out of its estimated $236 million loss. But insurance payouts come after the fact, representing loss mitigation, not loss prevention. They're not likely to cover the cost of Home Depot's recently completed security improvement project. Nor will they go toward funding the $100 million that Target plans to invest in placing antifraud, "chip-enabled smart-card technology" in its stores by the first quarter of 2015. Perhaps more importantly, insurance offers little consolation when a massive cyber attack threatens a company’s ability to continue as a going concern. cfo.com

Walgreens & Former CFO battle - 'A Nasty Breakup'
The former CFO alleges Walgreen spoke ill of him in meetings with large shareholders after he resigned from his job following a bad forecast for generic drug prices that caused the company to cut its profit target. The company responded in court saying the former executive was responsible for the disappointing financial forecast that preceded his departure and calling him a "bitter former executive." Ira Kalb, assistant professor of clinical marketing at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business: "In an Aug. 4 press release, Walgreen and exiting CFO Wade Miquelon made glowing positive statements about each other. Within days 'senior Walgreen executives' said Miquelon's finance unit was 'weak' and had 'lax controls.' Irrespective of the truth, this public airing of differences in the media is not likely to bode well for either party-especially since statements now being made seem to be inconsistent with those in the Aug. 4 press release.  wsj.com

Hudson's Bay Co. has appetite for acquisitions - synergies drive efficiencies  "We're in no rush to buy anything, we have plenty on our plate right now," he said. But "we've proven growth through [mergers and acquisitions] works." Baker said he believes the "synergies" that are created - the company is on track to save $100 million a year by merging the operations of its three retail businesses - is "one of the most effective ways for us to grow today and it brings us so much opportunity to drive efficiencies. It allows us to create value where others can't. This value can then be reinvested into our core retail business." But acquisition is just one way to expand, Baker said. Driving digital growth is also a major opportunity, he said, along with expanding the Saks Off 5th business, bringing Saks full-line and Off 5th stores to Canada, and investing in the existing store base to better serve the customer. Capitalizing on the strength of the company's real estate portfolio is also a strategic advantage, he said. wwd.com

Incoming PCI council head takes hard stance on hackers - His advice to retailers
Stephen Orfei will take over as general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council at the end of the year. Orfei: "It's important for businesses to keep their eye on both their sales and their IT systems at all times. Organizations should prioritize the strong security principles found in PCI Standards, and maintain a multi-layered security approach that involves people, process and technology working together to protect consumers. Take the time now to do an inventory of your computers and systems to ensure that all assets that touch the payment system have the latest software updates and patches ... Make sure that you have monitoring and network surveillance in place to alert you immediately to any anomalous activities or changes to your systems that could put payment data at risk." csoonline.com

RLPM Challenges Sheriff in Write-in Campaign in Montgomery Co., NY Election
James Glorioso, a regional loss prevention manager for Dollar General, is challenging six-term incumbent Sheriff Michael Amato in Montgomery County, New York, for his position on November 4. Glorioso was removed from the ballot as an independent candidate last month, however, he is still challenging the sheriff as a write-in candidate. "I want to take everything I learned over the years and instill it into the sheriff's office," says Glorioso, who says if he loses he will continue his efforts and try again in four years. twcnews.com recordernews.com

Papa John's CEO attends slain worker's funeral in Nashville
The founder and CEO of Papa John's traveled to Tennessee this weekend to attend the funeral of an employee who was gunned down during a robbery attempt while working the late shift. Gordon Schaffer's family gathered Saturday to mourn his death at a funeral service in Spring Hill. In a Facebook post, Schaffer's sister said the pizza company's founder, John Schnatter, visited with the family before the service. "We never once imagined that this would touch anyone high up in the Papa John's corporate office, let alone, John Schnatter," Devan Cronin wrote. "He was visibly distraught when speaking to my family about the tragic loss of my brother and it was apparent that he didn't come just to pay lip service." Cronin said Papa John's also paid for Schaffer's funeral service and medical expenses. But, she added, "this display of support was so much more meaningful than any monetary donation." Schaffer, 22, was working the late shift at the Columbia Papa John's on Oct. 20 when armed robbers entered the restaurant and forced him to empty the register. After Schaffer handed over fistfuls of cash, one of the suspects shot him. He died before medics could get him to the hospital. Darious A. Fitzpatrick was arrested Wednesday and charged with killing Schaffer. He also faces charges related to the gunpoint robberies of two Dollar General stores earlier this month. usatoday.com

H&M bans Indian supplier over labor abuses

H&M will ban suppliers from using products made by Tamil Nadu-based Super Spinning Mills Ltd., the Stockholm-based company said on Tuesday. A Bangladeshi supplier has used yarn produced at the mill, though H&M doesn’t have a direct business agreement, spokeswoman Lena Enocson Almroth said in an e-mail.

The 'Insider Threat' - How retailers can spot and prevent one of the most difficult threats to identify  High-profile breaches such as those at US retailers Home Depot and Target serve as an important reminder for IT security teams on the need to stay one step ahead of those trying to break through their perimeter. Unfortunately, they also make it all too easy for organizations to focus their attention on the outside threats and overlook those a little closer to home. However, insiders represent a significant problem for IT security teams. Indeed, a recent report by AlgoSec found that almost two-thirds of information security and IT professionals rate insiders as their greatest risk. Insiders have special privileges that external attackers do not. They already have access to the network and systems, and can compromise sensitive data all too easily; often without intending to, through ignorance, negligence, or just plain carelessness. The problem is exacerbated further by the decreasing number of dedicated resources that organisations now have, with many employees being replaced by contractors, third-party support personnel and service providers. information-age.com

Protecting data from disgruntled employees
Whilst we might assume that the majority of staff within an organization are honest and trustworthy, the 'insider threat' is ever present. Whether it be a deliberate malicious attack, negligent behavior, or purely a lack of policy control over corporate data, the risks are munificent. Whilst many organizations are prepared for security attacks, with processes in place to ensure security on their own systems, few employers expect their employees/ex-employees to steal their company data. Threats can come from employees in the office, former disgruntled employees, contractors, or any other business associate that has authorized access to corporate data. information-age.com

App reliability on Halloween could influence Cyber Monday sales: report
A bad experience with a retailer's mobile application while shopping for Halloween would negatively impact the likelihood of returning on Cyber Monday for 71 percent of Americans, according to a new report from Soasta. Web performance has been an issues on retailers' radars for a while but, as shoppers get more comfortable shopping via mobile applications, it is becoming imperative for retailers to insure a good user experience here as well. Key findings in the Halloween Retail Readiness Index include that 80 percent of parents of children under 18 say app reliability is important as well as 87 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 34. mobilecommercedaily.com

Apple Pay's Biometrics Open a New Security Era for M-Payments
On the back of the new iPhone 6 and the smartwatch, Apple made a splash last month with its Apple Pay announcement. The feature turns an iPhone into a digital wallet, which can store credit and debit cards, and enable the use of near-field communications (NFC) for payment. Instead of swiping a card, users can pay by waving or tapping the phone using a sensor—for a transaction that takes about 10 seconds, the company said. As a security measure, checking out requires users to touch their finger to the iPhone's fingerprint sensor to approve the transaction; the card stored on the phone will then be charged automatically. It's the biometric aspect that really makes the proposition work, according to security researchers. Google Wallet for example has been around for a while, but lacks a hardware integration strategy that makes the service more personal, and therefore trustworthy. This could become a commonplace approach to payments, and soon, especially considering that Apple won’t be alone in the fingerprint sensor arena for long. Samsung announced back in April that it will use the S3 Authentication Suite from Nok Nok Labs to make the Galaxy S5 smartphone Fast IDentification Online (FIDO)-enabled. techzone360.com

NJ Police Officer, Bloods, Crips Named in 219-Count Gang Indictment Accused members of the Bloods and Crips street gangs, a police officer and two pawn shop owners were among the 44 people indicted Tuesday on a bevy of charges including racketeering conspiracy, attempted murder and drug and weapons crimes after a 14-month investigation into gang activity in New Jersey, authorities say. A Monmouth County grand jury handed down the 219-count indictment after several law enforcement agencies looked into gang activity along two dead-end streets in Asbury Park in an effort they dubbed "Operation Dead End," prosecutors say. Several of those charged in the indictment had been arrested during a large sweep earlier this year. Prosecutors say that detectives discovered gang members operating out of those two areas worked together to commit crimes ranging from armed robberies and burglaries and drug distribution to coordinating shootings of rival gang members. nbcnewyork.com

Social media can be a fantastic platform for every company and executive, but it can also be a nightmare. Mixing personal with professional oftentimes sends the wrong messages and can absolutely destroy the image a professional needs to maintain in the public arena. Maintaining boundaries and separating the two can oftentimes be difficult to accomplish as corporate America searches for every piece of information they can find on executives and companies. And regardless of what anyone says, your professional image should always take precedence over your personal image in the social media world.
