Crime's Publicly Reported Cases Report
Increase in State ORC Laws, ORC Associations &
ORC Teams Having an Impact
Huge Increase in Total Cases Up 132%, Cases with Dollars Reported Up 139%, and
Dollars Reported Up 367% Over 3 Years
These significant increases can be attributed to a number of factors with three
standing out: one of the leading reasons is the increase in ORC laws across the
nation and the ripple effect it's had on helping to capture the data. By having
these laws on the books, so to speak, it's standardized the reporting and
literally forced the media to report it across the country using the same
wording, whereas before, the media used various phrases and for the most part
undervalued ORC's impact themselves, much like the legislators did prior to
their enactment. So in many respects, the media has been the last ones in a
chain of knowledge and awareness that actually began at LP's front door.
With the fact that five states enacted ORC laws just last year, 14 others were
enacted during our four year reporting period, and the remaining 11 ORC laws
were passed the four years preceding this study, what we have is thirty states
(3 pending) now formally reporting the true ORC cases that make it to the legal
complaint stage, with two thirds of the states only reporting since 2012,
which fuels the increase as much as any other factor.
With that being said, we then have to consider the vast majority of cases that
the media is not reporting due to various reasons, from simply not having the
reporters in the market, or unskilled reporters, simply missing or not covering
the "police beats", to law enforcement not releasing the information for various
However, these increases also reflect the huge increase in the number of ORC
Associations and retail ORC teams that are now focused on the problem and
aggressively pursuing well defined ORC crime, with the vast majority of ORC
Associations only becoming active over the last five years and the number of ORC
specific retail positions more than tripling, especially since 2009, and what
we're seeing in the numbers is performance.
The laws, the collaboration, and the individual performance is now paying off
and we're seeing the results.
So is ORC increasing or are we just getting better at fighting it? That's the
question. Over the next few years our team here at the Daily hopes to be
able to answer that.
Tomorrow we'll show you the geographical impact and how it matches up, or
doesn't, to the other surveys.
Regis Salons Asset Protection Team Efforts Continue to be
Highlighted in Quarterly Reports
For some time now Regis has shown their absolute commitment to the Asset
Protection effort. With the President including them as a critical business
partner and incorporating their effort into the very fabric of the company.
Here's some of his comments to investors in the Third Quarter results press
release, opening up with: The focus on Leadership Development, Technical
Education and Asset Protection are continuing to improve our execution
Asset Protection. Creating an environment where all stylists are working
together, positively contributing to the health of our salons and salon teams,
remains a key priority for our Asset Protection team. Enhanced exception
reporting tools and case management systems provide key salon metrics that
enable us to prioritize our asset protection efforts against our most compelling
revenue growth opportunities. Through our asset protection awareness program and
salon visits, our Asset Protection team is encouraging field leaders to make the
right choices to optimize their individual success and revenues of Regis. During
the first quarter, Asset Protection conducted over 800 awareness training
sessions and salon visits. Not only did we continue to see sales trends
improve due to these visits, but our Asset Protection team also assisted our
field leaders in retaining high performing stylists and coaching stylists to
grow their businesses to earn commissions.
Editor's Note: To single out the AP team members as playing a role in
retaining high performing stylist and growing the business is certainly a
significant accomplishment on the part of their team, as it's the objective of
all AP teams it's rare to see a president actually call it out in a quarterly
press release time and again. Obviously they're not only contributing but
they're going well beyond. Congratulations to the Regis AP Team. businesswire.com
Top 10 Jobs At Risks Because of Robots -
Retail salespersons #4 & Security Guards Comes in 6th Place
Panera CEO Ron Shaich says robots will eventually replace his workers. Panera
has been implementing technology like touch-screen ordering stations for
customers, which allow them to bypass interacting with any human workers while
dining at the restaurant.
They could replace up to half the US workforce within the next decade or two,
according to a Bloomberg report published last year.
Robots could become more prevalent in retail in particular with the industry
facing a labor shortage and growing pressure to pay higher wages. The number
of open retail positions has been growing, while the industry's labor pool has
been shrinking, according to data from the job site Indeed. Retail job openings
posted on the website increased 26% to 530,477 in the 12 months ending in
September. Editor's Note: Don't let these numbers fool you. As we've
reported before, the increased popularity of online recruiting and the trend of
increasing customer touch points by staffing more store level jobs does not
imply that the middle and upper management positions are increasing. Quite the
contrary, those positions are in fact decreasing. Even with the recent push for
12 new senior LP jobs posted recently.
Here are the jobs that are most at risk, based on the study.
Conference attendance depends on companies more than show
Before attending a conference, security executives pay more attention to their
budget, timing and their current projects than what the show offers. But, when
it comes to the show, respondents were almost evenly split between location,
attendees/keynotes/speakers and "something different." Attending a conference
depends on money, time and current company projects, according to 69 percent.
Thirty percent listed location as their top priority for attending a new
conference. "I don't have time nor wish to expend the resources to travel far
from my area," said one respondent.
Thirty percent said they attend the same shows every year. "[A new show] would
have to be something pretty new and different to get me to NOT attend ISC or
ASIS and go something new instead," said one reader.
Thirty-nine percent look specifically for attendees, keynotes, and speakers at
an industry event. "Continuing education and new product technology training is
vital in our industry,"
Bargaining Power Key To Walgreens, Rite Aid Antitrust Probe
Walgreens Boots Alliance's $17.2 billion bid for rival Rite Aid will likely face

authorizing bogus invoices for GK3 to get loan
In its March suit, VFP claimed Foot Locker Inc.'s former director of in-store

of franchise development, Robert Rainier, verified bogus invoices purporting to
show money Foot Locker owed to G3K that served as a basis for VFP's loans to
vendor G3K Display, but on Oct. 22, Judge Charles E. Ramos found that VFP
failed to show that Foot Locker gave Smith or Rainier actual or implied

Ascena CEO Reveals Acquisition Strategy -
Just in case they may be looking at your company
David R. Jaffe, president and chief executive officer of Ascena Retail Group,
has "a hit list" of the 10 companies he's most eager for his firm to acquire.
Jaffe stressed that Ascena's acquisition strategy is facilitated by its shared
services group which provides all of the back-end operations for all of the
brands, centralizing such functions as logistics, supply chain, accounting , tax
and legal. "We have about 22 functions that we centralize and in this way we get
the advantage of size and we can leverage that for lower costs and greater
Jaffe also said he never relocates the acquired company. That preserves the
staff and the culture of the brands. "Maurices was started in Duluth, Minnesota,
and they are still in Duluth. We never moved them because that's where 95
percent of the people are from. So if you moved the business to a campus setting
you will lose all these people. That tribal knowledge exists and I think it
would be a huge problem if you did that. So we have left all of our businesses
exactly where they were, with their teams mostly in place.
As we think about their culture we want them to each have their own culture. The
analogy I like to use is if you are from Texas, you are really proud of Texas
but you also have the American flag. wwd.com
Some Retailers Step Back From Black Friday Frenzy
As more customers turn to online shopping, some chains opt to stay closed or
open later. Outdoor gear retailer Recreational Equipment Inc., known as REI,
decided to close its 143 stores on Black Friday. Other chains, like GameStop
Corp. and Staples Inc., will open later on Friday but plan to remain closed on
Store executives say the moves are in response to employees' requests to have
the holiday off, as well as to customers who are fed up with the
shoppingmayhem and shop online instead.
Many of the biggest retailers have no plans to pull back their holiday hours and
might even open earlier on Thanksgiving, experts say.
More consumers plan to boycott Black Friday
More consumers plan to shop on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday, according
to a recent Morpace Omnibus report. Holiday intentions for U.S. consumers
were revealed when the Omnibus data showed that out of 1,001 individuals
surveyed, more than 57% plan to shop on Cyber Monday this year, compared
to only 35% planning to shop on Black Friday. And of those planning to
shop on Black Friday, only 23% will be strictly going to retail locations while
another 55% will be shopping both in-store and online.

General Councils Find Liability Shield In Cybersecurity Info-Sharing Bill
The cybersecurity information-sharing bill finally passed by the U.S. Senate on
Tuesday injects a dose of certainty into general counsels' daunting challenge of
determining how and with whom to disclose cyberthreats and data breaches by
making liability claims easier to shake, attorneys say.
Businesses in financial services, retail and other sectors already exchange
sector-specific threat data among themselves through information sharing and
analysis centers, or ISACs. Yet the creation of formal liability protections
for companies that strip shared data of personally identifiable information as
well as the formation of a clear path to exchanging data with the federal
government is likely to strengthen these long-running efforts, attorneys
93% of all consumer sentiment on retail privacy was negative
The report finds that the main factors contributing to negative sentiment are
data security (76%) and intrusive behavior by the retailer (51%). Consumer
skepticism grew when trigger incidents occurred, including updates of privacy
policies during mergers and acquisitions, or regulatory inquiries into a
retailer's violation of data security policies.
Technology perceived as intrusive was met with high suspicion, including
in-store traffic monitoring (84% negative) and facial recognition (81%
Payments: Mitek adds mobile facial recognition to Photo Verify
Mitek Tuesday announced it has added facial recognition capabilities to the
company's instant ID document verification product, Photo Verify. The company
said in a press release these two factors of authentication are intended to help
businesses optimize the mobile channel for customer acquisition and payments
while minimizing risk. mobilepaymentstoday.com
"Breach of personal and financial data more prevalent in the
United Kingdom and Europe than it is in the U.S"
even though fewer European breaches make the headlines. That's because data
breach notification and disclosure laws in Europe are far more lax than those
in the States. European fraud experts say less sophisticated attacks are far
more common and pose a greater fraud risk. Socially engineered schemes and
other low-tech attacks are leading causes of fraud in Europe.
The over-arching theme of the Fraud Summit in London Oct. 27, was that fraud,
not surprisingly, is a global problem. And to fight it we have to have global
collaboration and more transparent breach disclosure so that we can openly share
information about the techniques and methods international attackers are using.
Synthetic identity fraud impacting millions
"It's when someone takes one person's social security number, another
person's name and address and a third person's date of birth, and combines it to
create, effectively, a bionic person." And while identity theft is hard
enough to detect, Levin said synthetic identity fraud poses an even greater
challenge for law enforcement since it pulls information from a bunch of people
to create one identity.
Boards More Involved on Cyber
More than two thirds of company board members are more involved with
cybersecurity issues than they were a year ago, according to a new survey by BDO
USA, a consulting firm. Nearly 90% of the 150 public-company board members who
responded to the survey said they're briefed on cybersecurity at least once a
year, with a third briefed at least quarterly on the issue. Seventy percent
said they have increased company investments against cyber-attacks during the
past year, the survey found.
Security Remains a Big Obstacle to Business Mobility
About 92% of IT departments worldwide still restrict users from accessing
sensitive corporate data and resources from mobile devices. The 2015 Global
Authentication and Identity Access Management Index reveals that almost all
respondents (94%) are concerned that their organization will be breached or
hacked as a result of mobile credential theft or compromise. This is
exacerbated by the rise in mobile endpoints; companies have, on average, two
mobile end points per user, managing three sets of credentials per user.
"The pressure is on for IT departments to accommodate demands for greater
mobility as employees crave new and flexible approaches to working,"
"Organizations that are not open to this change are very likely to be inhibiting
business productivity." infosecurity-magazine.com

Is Black Friday the new Cyber Monday?
Well, not yet. But the day after Thanksgiving may soon be as big an e-commerce
event as the Monday after Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving is closing
the gap on the Monday after Thanksgiving-known as Cyber Monday due to the
traditionally high level of online buying that day-as the biggest online
shopping day of the year.
The report suggests that U.S. e-commerce sales on Black Friday will reach $2.7
billion this year, up 12.5% from $2.4 billion last year. That's still shy of the
estimated $2.9 billion in U.S. e-commerce sales expected to take place the
Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, which would be a 7.4% gain from $2.7 billion
a year ago.
However, Black Friday's faster growth rate suggests that in the next few years
it may surpass Cyber Monday to become the biggest online shopping day of the
year, says Tamara Gaffney, principal analyst, Adobe Digital Index. internetretailer.com
Online payments at risk as banks fail to secure transactions -
Nearly 50% believe online financial fraud is increasing
Around 33% of financial services do not provide a secure online payment channel
for customers, despite the increase in online transactions. According to a
survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab and B2B International, it was found that
several banks and payment companies are facing difficulties to fully protect
themselves and their customers from financial fraud. Around 65% of the
respondents claimed that their customers are conducting financial transactions
through different devices, yet only 53% have implemented two-factor
authentication. Only 50% of the respondents have introduced a specialised,
real-time anti-fraud solution despite knowing the fact that is the most
effective form of protection available. The financial sector has always been the
prime target of hackers, and recently the National Crime Agency (NCA) urged
Britons to protect themselves from cyber attacks after hackers stole around 20m
pounds from UK bank accounts. " If you consider that our own research uncovered
22.9 million financial malware attacks in 2014, targeting 2.7 million customers
worldwide, it is clear that dealing with each incident individually is not a
viable, long-term option."
Retail Chain Target Turns to eBay for International Sales
eBay said this week that retail chain-store Target is using its Global Shipping
Program to reach international shoppers. It tweeted the news, linking to an
article published in Target's hometown newspaper, the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The newspaper reported that after Target's failed expansion into Canada, the
retailer is using online channels to expand internationally, including the use
of eBay GSP as well as a new international website. Target began a pilot with
the eBay Global Shipping Program in November 2014 to make 200,000 products
available to shoppers in the UK. And in June, it began expanding that test to
the 64 countries in the GSP program.
Chase Pay Will Ring up Fast, Secure Payments for Merchants

same technology used to scan gift cards.
● Chase Pay will be able to connect a merchant's loyalty programs directly into
the payment experience.
● Chase has a complete payments system and can work directly with merchants to
drive down the cost of accepting payments.
● Fixed pricing, with no additional fees: $0 network fees, $0 merchant
processing fees and $0 merchant fraud liability.

New Jersey couple plead guilty to scamming Kohl's Cash rewards program; $587,526
A New Jersey couple pleaded guilty Wednesday to defrauding the Kohl's Cash
rewards program of nearly $600,000 by creating a computer program to steal cash
certificate numbers belonging to customers, according to court documents filed
in federal court. Pavan Gurram and Vanaja Gattupalli, who are originally from
India, pleaded guilty to fraud in federal court before U.S. District Judge J.P.
Stadtmueller on Wednesday. Their sentencing is set for January. Gurram, as the
mastermind of the fraud, is facing more prison time, about a decade in prison
based on sentencing guidelines. But his plea agreement says if he cooperates
fully, the prosecutor could recommend a sentence below the guidelines. That
includes helping the government locate all the assets purchased with the stolen
money including in overseas accounts, where some money was deposited. Gurram
also agreed to pay $587,526 in restitution. Gattupalli is less culpable than her
husband, according to documents, and prosecutors will recommend a sentence of
less than a year.

IN: Washington Square Mall Shooting leaves 3 injured, 1 in Critical Condition
A gunman opened fire in an Indianapolis mall on Wednesday evening leaving 3
injured, one of which is in critical condition at a local hospital, according to
multiple reports. The shooting occurred around 6:30 p.m. local time outside of a
Target at Washington Square Mall. Authorities believe the suspect may have known
one of the victims and that they may have had an argument before the shooting
occurring. "This is not a random act and it looks like the suspect and the
victim knew each other," Police Deputy Chief of Operations Brian Mahone told

Few details are known about the shooting that left one man dead Wednesday
morning outside the Wal-Mart off East U.S. Highway 190. Police arrived on the
scene shortly after 4 a.m. after receiving reports of gunshots heard in the
vicinity. The police department confirmed one man was found dead at the scene,
though his name and description were being withheld as the investigation
continues. The victim was transported to Metroplex Hospital in Killeen, but it
is unclear whether he died at the crime scene or while in transit to the
hospital. Multiple witnesses were questioned following the shooting, as police

NY: Six arrested after fights at Marketplace Mall food court
Fights at the Marketplace Mall food court were recorded and posted on Facebook.
Now deputies say six people have been arrested. Officials say the fights

"We don't know why they were fighting, or what brought this on this
confrontation. What we do know is it was really unacceptable behavior in a very
public place with families, and children." Deputies say the fight happened just
outside of the Monroe County substation inside Marketplace Mall, but I am told a
deputy was not assigned to the station at the time.

entering and leaving the store," said Officer Paul Moody with the Columbus
Police Department. It's these photos police are hoping will help them identify
this person and put him in jail. Officer Moody says the suspect entered the
store, approached a cashier, snatched items and took off running on foot. The
photo shows him running away from the scene. Police would not confirm what items
were stolen or if any money was taken, but they did say the suspect was not
Pittsburgh, PA: Former Century III Mall General Manager
pleads no contest to felony theft charges
Former Century III Mall general manager John A. Sabino entered a no-contest plea
Wednesday to felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property. Sabino, 52,
of Pine told Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Anthony M. Mariani he was
entering that plea of his own free will and with a clear head, even though, as
the judge said, "no contest pleas are treated as a finding of guilt." Allegheny
County Assistant District Attorney Stephie Ramaley said a "thorough review" by
county detectives found that $45,700 was stolen from the West Mifflin shopping
complex. During that time, according to an affidavit of probable cause, Sabino
deposited 12 checks in a Huntington Bank account, then made 159 ATM withdrawals
and payments at Rivers Casino and other places totaling $67,121.90.

Vandalizes Store Over Sausage Biscuit Price Increase
The suspect allegedly vandalized the door in the Atlanta-area outlet on his way
out on Sunday morning, causing the glass to smash. Waffle House employees
described the man as loud, upset, and belligerent upon getting his check and
learning that the price of his sausage biscuit was $1.50 rather than the $1 he
previously paid. The unhappy customer then left the store and either kicked or
punched the door, causing the window to break apart.
