OpenEye Holiday Tradition Continues to Bring Cheer to Local Kids

OpenEye's is continuing its annual holiday tradition by gifting nearly 100 Central Valley School District (CVSD) students brand new bicycles that they themselves help to assemble.

On December 5 and 7, OpenEye employees will spend a few hours with the visiting students at OpenEye's headquarters. Together, students and employees will assemble their bicycles, do basic computer assembly, and complete a scavenger hunt using OpenEye's Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras to find objects placed throughout the building. In addition to their new bike, each student will also receive a lock and their own helmet.

Participating students have been carefully selected from schools all across the Central Valley School District based on a variety of conditions, such as how well students performed on various monthly character traits throughout the school year. OpenEye conducts this event to serve local students in positive and important ways, and to demonstrate OpenEye's commitment to social responsibility through meaningful civic engagement. openeye.net

Fairfax, VA: Christmas Anti-Theft Team examines retail crime trends
Each holiday season, the Fairfax County Police Department places additional officers at Tyson's Corner Center, Tyson's Galleria, the Fair Oaks mall and Springfield Town Center. The additional officers, join the ones already stationed in retail areas -- forming the Christmas Anti-Theft Team, or CATT.

"Black Friday was an incredibly busy weekend for us, we had a number of cases," explained Lt. Charles Riddle, who supervises multiple teams in the Tyson's area. In the past five years, Riddle said officers in the Tyson's area recovered close to $2 million in physical property.

In an office, tucked away at Tyson's, Riddle has tools criminals utilized in a number of closed cases. From aluminum-lined boxes designed to trip sensors; to presses, designed to create credit cards -- the tools range from relatively complex, to incredibly basic. Due to relatively complex new technology, Riddle said many criminals, are actually reverting back to basic tactics, and tools. localdvm.com

Charlotte, NC: Drones, 'Bait' Cars Used in Salisbury Holiday Patrols
Grinches, be gone. That's the message Salisbury Police is sending wannabe thieves this holiday season with their Operation Santa Patrol. Because officers say they see an uptick in shoplifters and car break-ins during the season, they're deploying a drone in the downtown core and near big box stores as a deterrent.

While virtually every business has a sophisticated surveillance system, many people said having this extra layer of protection is great for shoppers and stores alike. Other Santa Patrol methods include undercover officers and loading up "bait" cars with fake merchandise. spectrumlocalnews.com

Naples, FL: Michael Kors fire causes $8M in damage, reopening date unknown
The Michael Kors shop at Miromar Outlets in Estero was closed Monday after a fire caused about $8 million in damage on Thursday, according to a fire official. The fire was caused by sparks from a light over storage racks in a backroom, said Susan Lindenmuth, director of public affairs with Estero Fire Rescue.

The fire was investigated by the Lee County Fire-Arson Task Force along with the State Fire Marshal's Office and was initially contained by two fire sprinklers. The smoke damage to the store's merchandise was extensive, which is why the damage was so costly, Lindenmuth said. naplesnews.com

Convenience store operator goes digital with surveillance
Sprint Food Stores has taken its anti-theft efforts to the next level with an advanced digital security-camera and recorder system. The cameras provide easily retrievable and emailable surveillance video evidence (with clearer images) that help deter theft and fraud and enable the retailer to efficiently monitor store conditions from home, headquarters, or anywhere with an Internet connection.

"With an advanced surveillance camera system, a convenience store chain could achieve ROI within a year through better prevention of theft, fraud, and unjustified claims as well as improved operational oversight," said Todd Harrison, IT director, Sprint Food Stores, which operates 20 convenience stores in Georgia and South Carolina. Harrison also oversees loss prevention camera surveillance for the company.

Previously, Sprint Food Stores used lower resolution cameras that required onsite DVD burning as a means of storage. According to Harrison, limitations in surveillance video quality and connectivity were the main reasons that the convenience store chain sought an alternative.

As a solution, Harrison turned to an advanced surveillance camera system provided by ERC, a Kennesaw, Georgia-based supplier and integrator of surveillance and POS systems. The company has provided over 10,000 stores and restaurants with surveillance or POS systems including Arby's, Popeyes, KFC and Burger King. chainstoreage.com

12 NYC companies join the IMAGE program, including Five 7-Eleven franchises
'ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers'

A dozen New York based businesses have partnered with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York Thursday by joining the agency's employment compliance program IMAGE, or "ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers."

Five corporations, each individually owning one 7-Eleven franchise, joined the IMAGE program. FYN Management, Inc.; HYN, Inc.; YN 1, Inc.; 5th Avenue Wali, Inc.; and ZHSG, Inc. were represented by Yousaf Naseer, the President of all five corporations. Combined, these companies employ approximately 60 individuals. Four of the locations are located on Long Island and one is located in Manhattan. Besides owning five franchises, Naseer is also the President of the United Franchise Owners of Long Island & New York, which represents all of the 7-Eleven franchise owners on Long Island, in the Five Boroughs of New York City, and in Westchester and Putnam Counties.

Yousaf Naseer of 7-11 stated, "I became a 7-Eleven franchisee in 1985 and have been a part of United Franchise Owners of Long Island and New York (UFOLI) for more than twenty-five years. I have served as President of UFOLI since 2017. As a 7-Eleven franchisee, I decided to participate in the IMAGE program to work closely with Homeland Security Investigations, so that I can ensure that I have established proper hiring procedures for my businesses. IMAGE provides me with the training, tools, and resources I need to hire an authorized workforce and to eliminate all clerical mistakes while properly completing the I-9 Forms. The E- Verify program makes it easy for me, as an employer, to ensure that all of my employees are authorized to work in the United States and that all of their documents are authentic. It gives me the ability to avoid non-compliance with the immigration laws." ice.gov

To qualify for IMAGE certification, partners agree to conduct a self-assessment of their hiring practices to uncover vulnerabilities that could be exploited by unauthorized workers; enroll in E-verify, an employment eligibility verification program; train staff on IMAGE Best Employment Practices and the use of new screening tools; and undergo a Form I-9 audit by ICE.

Companies interested in more information on the IMAGE program can visit www.ICE.gov/image.

Wall Street Rule for the #MeToo Era: Avoid Women at All Cost
Interviews with more than 30 senior executives suggest many are spooked by #MeToo and struggling to cope. "It's creating a sense of walking on eggshells," said David Bahnsen, a former managing director at Morgan Stanley who's now an independent adviser overseeing more than $1.5 billion.

This is hardly a single-industry phenomenon, as men across the country check their behavior at work, to protect themselves in the face of what they consider unreasonable political correctness -- or to simply do the right thing. The upshot is forceful on Wall Street, where women are scarce in the upper ranks. The industry has also long nurtured a culture that keeps harassment complaints out of the courts and public eye, and has so far avoided a mega-scandal like the one that has engulfed Harvey Weinstein. bloomberg.com

A Digital Onboarding Experience for Seasonal Hires
As a retailer, you've no doubt met your hiring quotas by now for the holiday season. Next comes an equally weighty challenge: how to onboard, train, and most importantly, engage those thousands of seasonal workers that Santa has so generously placed under your corporate tree.

Although many organizations have standardized platforms to manage the recruiting process, very few have a coordinated solution in place to welcome, onboard, train, and engage seasonal workers. This is where digital workforce platforms are changing the nature of employee engagement. Workforce portals intelligently analyze and track each individual worker's needs, customizing their personal experience to match their situation as well as the company's priorities.

Everyone has faced a "first day" scenario in which they feel unsure of what to do, where to go, or what to expect. Digital workforce platforms, such as Deloitte's ConnectMe, which connects employees to relevant HR resources and tools, combat this dilemma by providing the hand-holding new hires may need. As a one-stop resource, these platforms or portals can also eliminate frustration and bewilderment; instead of exposing new workers to four or five different systems, a single employee platform gives them a much simpler experience. Fragmentation, multiple log-ons, and information disconnects are no longer an issue. chainstoreage.com

US retailers relieved as US delays $200bn China tariff increase
US retailers have welcomed news that the US has decided to hold off on implementing tariffs on $200bn worth of Chinese goods due to be implemented in January. The delay comes after China and US agreed to a 90-day truce on further tariffs hikes to allow talks to take place. From January 1 tariffs on $200bn worth of Chinese goods were set to be increased from 10% to 25% as part of an ongoing trade war. aircargonews.net

Jared And Kay Jewelers Fix Consumer Data Breach
Signet Jewelers, the company that owns Jared and Kay Jewelers, has fixed a massive data breach that allowed anyone to view the order information of other customers, including a home address and the last four digits of a purchaser's credit card, according to a Monday (December 3) report.

The problem came to light in the middle of November, when a web designer in Dallas named Brandon Sheehy bought a pair of earrings for his girlfriend from Jared online.

Sheehy found out that when he modified the link in the confirmation email just slightly, and pasted it into a web browser, he could see another customer's order. The information clearly showed the customer's name, shipping and billing address, phone number, email address, all items and total amounts, the delivery date, the tracking link and the last four digits of the customer's credit card number.

Scott Lancaster, the chief information security officer at Signet, said the company fixed the issue for all future orders, but until recently didn't fix the issue for past orders. pymnts.com

First Lawsuits Filed in Starwood Hotels' Breach
Legal fallout from the massive Starwood Hotels reservation breach reported last week has begun, with class-action suits filed on behalf of both guests and investors.

On Friday, Murphy, Falcon & Murphy, with co-counsel Morgan & Morgan, filed a class-action suit against Marriott International on behalf of the 500 million guests whose personal information was part of the breach. According to a statement announcing the suit, "Marriott failed to ensure the integrity of its servers and to properly safeguard consumers' highly sensitive and confidential information."

The next day, Dec. 1, Rosen Law Firm announced that it had filed a class-action suit on behalf of those who purchased Marriott International shares from Nov. 9, 2016, through the day prior to the suit's filing date. The suit claims that Marriott International made misleading statements to shareholders by not finding and disclosing the breach prior to the purchase of Starwood Hotels.

At least one additional lawsuit on behalf of guests has been filed, and more lawsuits on behalf of both guests and shareholders are anticipated. darkreading.com

Security Breaches Come With High Price Tag for Business
With the busy Christmas shopping period now upon us, new research conducted on behalf of payment security specialists PCI Pal has found that 44% of UK consumers will stop spending with a business or brand for several months in the immediate aftermath of a security breach or a hack.

Even more significantly, a further 41% of consumers will never return to a brand or a business post-breach, representing a significant loss of revenue, offering a stark warning to consumer-facing businesses.

The findings from the research commissioned by the payment security specialist suggest that the combination of high-profile recent breaches, headlines devoted to new data privacy regulations such as the GDPR, and personal experience have put security concerns at the forefront for UK consumers. Over a third (38%) confirmed they have personally suffered the negative consequences of a data security breach. contact-centres.com

Webinar: How to Automate Your Security Operations Center (SOC)
No matter a company's size or organization, having a dedicated team to constantly monitor security operations and respond to incidents is a necessary function. A typical security operations center (SOC) tracks a significant number of security alerts, which they then must validate, and when required, drive a full incident investigation. With such a large volume of alerts, SOC analysts can easily spend a majority of their time responding to alerts and not focusing on hunting for complex attacks and managing large incidents.

With security automation tools, SOC analysts are able to automate some of the repetitive, time-consuming tasks, freeing them up to focus on threat hunts and other strategic initiatives to reduce risk. Register here.

$90 Scam: Fake Heart Rate Scanner App Slipped Into Apple's App Store
It was recently revealed that a fake heart rate scanner app had made its way past Apple's App Store review process and was listed in the store, where it was apparently charging customers a whopping $90 for it. Now for the most part no one would pay that much for an unproven app upfront, so what it did was that it offered to read your heart rate and asked users to place their fingers on the Touch ID sensor. From there the app would flash and dim the screen's brightness as if it were actually doing something, when in reality it launched a request to make an in-app purchase for $90 and if the user's finger had been on Touch ID and it was the same finger used for authentication, then the purchase would have gone through. ubergizmo.com

Inside the Battle: How Reducing Theft Penalties
Impacts Community Safety

California's Prop 47 & Raising Felony Thresholds

The negative consequences of California's Prop 47 and the raising of felony thresholds across the U.S. have been unmistakable for retailers. Nearly all are experiencing a rise in shoplifting - some by as much as 15%. With more states evaluating similar measures, what's a company's defense?

Kathleen Smith, VP of Asset Protection, Albertsons-Safeway, and Anne Marie Schubert, District Attorney, Sacramento County, discuss how these laws have impacted employee safety and violence in stores, and what retail LP investigators and executives can do to make shoplifting and ORC cases easier to prosecute.

A new way to vet transactions could boost online sales
In an effort to throw online retailers a life-line, credit card networks have come together to help with EMV 3DS (commonly known as 3DS 2.0), a protocol to authenticate CNP transactions. The protocol has been revamped and leaves behind the authentication complexity that had been a burden in the past. The consumer doesn't have to do anything. They will notice a difference on how they are authenticated: Instead of receiving a request to insert a 4-digit pin or other type of code to confirm the purchase, they will either not be asked anything (90% of the times) or they will be asked to authenticate themselves with a thumb, facial scan or other biometric scan.

The new protocol collects more information around each transaction and merchants have the choice to share that additional information with the issuer-to help issuers make more accurate decisions and increase approvals. Online retailers have to connect to the 3DS API. They need to choose a vendor to do so.

Including seamless pre-transaction security enables merchants to make better decisions around which transactions should be sent through the 3DS path and which ones they should route outside of the protocol. By doing so, merchants have better control over the experience they want to offer to their customers. digitalcommerce360.com

Online Fraudulent Traffic Increases 20% Leading Up To Holidays
The ad-verification company Fraudlogix published recent data showing an increase in fraudulent advertising traffic in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping season.

Fraudlogix analyzed three months of global programmatic ad traffic and found that the average percentage of fraudulent traffic jumped from 11.6% in October to 14.2% in November. The data includes all device types.

Invalid or fraudulent traffic is generated by bots, hijacked devices, or malware. The data comes from monitoring traffic from more than 640 million unique users, 1.2 billion unique devices, and 12 million URLs monthly.

Fraudlogix is not the only company to identify a rise in fraudulent ad traffic. Companies like Distil Networks estimate that bots create about 48% of all internet traffic across all web sites. mediapost.com

The Season of Fraud is Coming. Are You Prepared?
Every time the holiday season approaches, it comes with brand new opportunities for fraudsters. Black Friday and Christmas are around the corner, which means not only an increase in sales, but also the peak season for cybercriminals. How can you protect your business from fraud?

Take multiple metrics into consideration and validate your hypothesis with data. Require CVV code and address verification at checkout. Use technologies, such as non-invasive 3D Secure. Set rules that help flag suspicious orders but don't make them too strict. Monitor why credit cards are declined. Use security solutions that can adapt. It comes with working with a reliable payment provider. Apply multiple layers of security solutions. Follow the best practices year-round to make yourself backed up. business2community.com
