6 ways President Obama and Congress can improve cybersecurity  Protecting their businesses and customers from cyberattacks is of paramount importance to retailers. And in today's world, it's going to take the highest level of collaboration and coordination to make sure we do it right - government, businesses, industry stakeholders and law enforcement alike. This week NRF will attend President Obama's Cybersecurity Summit at Stanford University. We want to make sure the president and Congress know what it's going to take to fight these criminals - together. This open letter outlines achievable solutions we - and every industry with a stake in the issue - must work toward in order to better protect our customers, empower our members and effectively safeguard America's cyberspace against criminal hackers.

Some skeptical of Monroeville Mall safety policy, concerned it targets Black youth & may lead to racial profiling  Many in the Black community are skeptical of, and yet concerned about, new safety measures that will be implemented at Monroeville Mall after a tragic incident that took place at the crowded mall this past weekend. The third incident to take place in two months. Along with skepticism of the new measures comes concern that they will be used to unjustly profile Black youth who visit the mall. Kenneth Huston, president of the Allegheny East Unit of the NAACP, which represents the areas of Monroeville, Murrysville, Plum, Pitcairn and Wilmerding, said the new security measures are a good step, but is concerned that they may lead to racial profiling. newpittsburghcourieronline.com

Woman killed herself after being filmed shoplifting by 'caught on camera' TV crew in London at TK Maxx  'Dreading exposures': Elizabeth Outram hanged herself at home in Hackney on her 30th birthday. Her sister said she was "hounded" by a TV production company. Poplar coroners' court heard how Miss Outram had suffered from depression, anxiety and panic attacks since 2007 but her condition had stabilized by last summer when she went to a friend's hen party in Brighton. Unable to afford a leather jacket for the rock-themed night, she switched price tags in a TK Maxx store but was detained at the till and subsequently charged with fraud.

The incident was captured by a TV production company who were filming in the shop for a reality show. Miss Outram's sister Alexandra, 31, told the inquest: "She was traumatized by it and even further she was filmed by a production company. They hounded her, kept sending her messages and calling her, she told them she was receiving psychiatric treatment and she wasn't well but it was just ignored."

Ms Outram, an advertising account executive, today told the Standard that her sister "thought her life was over. She was so embarrassed to even tell me... When she was taken into the back room and questioned they were filming her. She said 'You can't film me' and they said 'We can'. She said she was ill but they did not call her carer - me. "Afterwards they sent her messages telling her they could use it and they were going to."

Her sister attempted suicide the first time on August 14 when she was due in court on charges of fraud, overdosing on antidepressants. A month later she took her own life, leaving a note asking to be buried alongside her father in the City of London Crematorium.

Miss Outram, whose mother died of cancer when she was a child, wrote: "I don't need to say anything else, it's all been said and done."

Consultant psychiatrist Nicholas Price told the inquest he had noticed a deterioration in Miss Outram's condition after her arrest. He said: "She cared very much about her reputation and she felt that this was a terrible blow." Ms Outram said after her sister's death the production company assured her they would not broadcast the footage.

Recording a verdict of suicide, coroner Mary Elizabeth Hassell said: "She was 30 and reflecting on her life. She had an appalling experience and was dreading exposure on national TV.

Former fraudster and JD Sports LP Director collude over crime prevention  Tony Sales - the man the British media famously dubbed "Britain's Greatest Fraudster" - and Tim Edwards, Director of Loss Protection at JD Sports & Fashion Group Plc., will be taking to the stage at Retail Fraud - London... for a joint presentation. The two, whose enmity was once legendary on the international Loss Prevention circuit, will be presenting the results of their independent testing and evaluation of Agon's new Concept Tag. In January of this year Agon also invited Tony Sales to apply his inside knowledge of how criminals would go about defeating the system to not only test the tag, but the whole supply chain; including the manufacture and distribution of the system's unique de-tagger. Tim Edwards comments: "Over the 18 months we have worked with Agon, we have suggested a number of tweaks that will allow Agon to realise their goal of providing the ultimate EAS tag to the retail community. I am looking forward to sharing the results of our trials."  retailfraud.com

Seek Simplicity in Managing Supply Chain Risk  Companies practicing good risk management will pay particular attention to their supply chains, as problems in this area-be they natural disasters or man-made crises-could have ramifications for business continuity, regulatory oversight, worker safety and company reputation. A webinar Wednesday hosted by the Corporate Responsibility Association highlighted ways companies can shift away from old supply chain management plans that focused solely on cutting costs and didn't adequately plan for situations that could disrupt operations or put the business in the crosshairs of human rights, labor rights and environmental rights organizations. The key, he said, is to keep your supply chain as simple as possible, which is no easy task, especially for those firms with global operations. The more global the supply chain, the more susceptible it is to issues such as damage, theft, problems with agents and third parties and delivery variability, not to mention higher production and transportation costs and lots more documentation and paperwork, said Mr. Sutherland. "Too many touch points means too many opportunities for failure," he said. wsj.com

EMV effectiveness driven by implementation quality  Following 2014's high-profile data breaches, U.S. payment card network participants began heavily endorsing Europay, MasterCard, and Visa-EMV-chip cards as an important way to prevent damage from payment card breaches. However, a Gartner analyst found that criminals have taken advantage of poor implementations of EMV chip payment applications, committing extensive fraud that defeats EMV controls for everyone in the payment card ecosystem. "Avoid Pitfalls with Payment Card Security Technologies and PCI," a research note by Avivah Litan, vice-president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, points out some of the hidden problems with payment card security technologies and the payment card industry. By year-end 2015, at least 5% of card issuers will suffer fraud on EMV cards due to improper implementations, up from a handful today. "EMV chip cards, already adopted in the rest of the world, have proven to dramatically reduce counterfeit card fraud because they are significantly harder to clone than magnetic stripe cards, which are still used throughout the United States," Litan writes. "Nevertheless, the adoption of EMV is relatively slow and as a result, payment card network participants must prepare for at least five more years of support for EMV chip as well as magstripe protocols on a single payment card." bankingexchange.com

"Operation Powder Burn" Shuts Down Baby Formula Crime Ring  A major organized crime ring accused of stealing thousands of dollars of baby formula from local grocery stores is out of commission thanks to a successful investigation and enforcement action by Scottsdale Police, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and members of the Arizona Organized Retail Crime Alliance (AZORCA). As a result of their cooperative efforts, dubbed "Operation Powder Burn," 17 defendants are now facing multiple felony counts of organized retail theft, fraudulent schemes, trafficking in stolen property and assisting a criminal syndicate.

"Operation Powder Burn is a prime example of how businesses and law enforcement can work together to shut down criminal organizations," said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. "Organized retail crimes of this magnitude harm not only businesses in our community but consumers as well, by reducing inventory and increasing costs. These offenses also provide funds that are frequently used to facilitate other criminal activity," he added.

"Fry's Food Stores is very pleased with the results and the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the retailers," said Joe Kopelic, Division Loss Prevention Manager for Fry's Food Stores. "These criminals travel and cause harm to our communities and businesses regardless of the city or town and the joint effort is greatly appreciated. We look forward to continued success in these endeavors."

Between September 2013 and January 2014, local grocery stores in multiple cities throughout Maricopa County experienced a dramatic increase in organized retail thefts. The recurring pattern in these incidents involved suspects entering the stores and filling reusable shopping bags or shopping carts with cans of baby formula. The suspects would then exit the store without paying for the formula and leave the scene in a get-away vehicle with the stolen goods. The thefts occurred at numerous stores, including Fry's Safeway, Walmart, Albertson's, Basha's, Winco and Food City.

During the course of their investigation, Loss Prevention Investigators from the affected retailers and Scottsdale Police Detectives learned that Tyler Hanesford (D.O.B. 8/5/1987) taught, directed and paid multiple people to steal the formula and also stole formula himself. Hanesford would then sell the stolen goods to Deborah Lynn Russell (D.O.B. 2/16/1966), who paid an average of $5.64 per can compared to the average retail value of $21.12 per can. On February 13, 2014, investigators served a search warrant at Russell's residence where they discovered and seized more than six thousand cans of baby formula with a retail value of approximately $150,000.

By sharing information and surveillance video through the Arizona Organized Retail Crime Alliance, Loss Prevention Investigators from separate stores were able to provide Scottsdale Police with evidence to identify individual perpetrators and the scope of the crime ring. Detectives were ultimately able to document 94 separate incidents of baby formula thefts from stores in every jurisdiction from Surprise to Apache Junction representing a monetary loss to the retailers of $63,838. The total number of incidents and value of stolen goods attributable to the crime ring is likely much higher.

On August 4, 2014, a Maricopa County Grand Jury handed up a 102-count indictment against Tyler Hanesford, Deborah Russell and 13 accomplices. Two other defendants were charged in a separate indictment. By December, 2014, all the defendants were located and served with the charges. The next scheduled hearing in the case is a case management conference set for February 26, 2015.

An indictment is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Fencing Operation: Passaic Co, NJ Sheriff's Office seizes Counterfeit merchandise; selling $400k to $500k in stolen merchandise  The owner of a Main Street clothing store was arrested Tuesday following a three-month investigation that found he was selling stolen and counterfeit clothing and accessories bearing major brand names like Gucci and Louis Vuitton, according to the Passaic County Sheriff's Office.

Rite Aid LP Agent & Two Accomplice's Convicted of Murder in Chester Rite Aid Robbery & Other Rite Aid Robberies  Tariq Mahmud stared in disbelief Wednesday as the jury foreman answered "Guilty" to the charge of second-degree murder for Mahmud's part in the killing of Rite Aid store manager Jason Scott McClay, a man Mahmud had called his friend. Mahmud, a former Rite Aid loss-prevention officer who was not at the store at the time of the murder, helped coordinate the robbery with inside information. He provided tips on who was working what nights, where the dead spots for surveillance cameras were located, and how much money was in the store. He also was found guilty of robbery and conspiracy. After seven days of trial, with 32 witnesses and 105 exhibits, it took a Delaware County Court jury less than two hours to convict Mahmud, Rita Pultro, and David Wiggins for the Sept. 19, 2013, slaying of McClay during a failed robbery at the Chester store. Two other defendants, Ashaniere White, 21, and Christopher Parks, 24, both also of Philadelphia, had already pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, robbery, and conspiracy, and are expected to be sentenced in March. White helped plan the robberies, and Parks drove the car the night McClay was slain.  philly.com

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

When anyone goes for an interview you’ve got to play to win. You should not allow: any outside variable, any future promotion thoughts or promises, your guilt feelings towards your current employer or boss, your preconceived opinions of the possible future employer, or any miss-step in the process on the part of the future employer disrupt or impact your performance. All interviews have long range implications on your career. The executives interviewing you are part of a community and you'll run into them again at another company. So if you do get involved and go for an interview, commit yourself all the way and play to win. It doesn’t mean you’ve got to take the job. It just means you have to perform at 100%.

Just a Thought,

Gus
