The Evolving Role of Loss Prevention
A Q&A with Dan Doyle, SVP, Chief Human Resources Officer, Bealls Inc.

The retail industry continues to undergo massive transformation, as do the careers of the people in it. Loss prevention is one such career path that might look quite different than it did 20 years ago — executives today might have started their careers physically chasing shoplifters and now spend their days devising strategies for using emerging technologies to prevent fraud.

Loss prevention professionals are often the unsung heroes keeping retail company assets, employees and customers safe, and the NRF PROTECT awards seek to honor those who do this difficult work.

Dan Doyle, a senior vice president for Bealls Department Stores, was inducted into the Ring of Excellence - the highest loss prevention and asset protection recognition in the retail industry - in 2014 for his contributions and outstanding leadership during a 40-year career. A former chairman of the NRF LP Advisory Council, Doyle previously was a private investigator who worked for Marshall Field’s and Lord & Taylor. He led loss prevention at Bealls for 22 years before becoming senior vice president of human resources for the retailer.

We sat down with Doyle to chat about his career in LP, why the profession matters and the upcoming NRF PROTECT 2018 conference, to be held June 11 – 13 in Dallas.

How has your career prepared you for your current role?
I am a student of human behavior, which led me toward the HR world. I’ve always had a great love for problem solving, assessing people, developing talent and understanding what makes employees want to do a good job. My career in LP specifically has exposed me to all parts of the retail business, improved my communication skills and introduced me to some great people.

What’s a common misconception about a career in loss prevention?
I think the biggest common misconception is that you’re running around, chasing shoplifters all day. There was probably a time where that was the primary function of LP, but it’s now just a very small piece. LP today focuses on things like disaster recovery, cybersecurity and risk management. The laymen have historically thought of LP people as retired cops or people that didn’t make it in law enforcement, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

With retail undergoing massive transformation, how does this affect the role of LP?
I think it creates a lot of uncertainty. It may drive companies to need a bigger loss prevention presence, because people are uncertain about what’s going to happen. Regardless, we need to continue to learn, evolve and grow with the business and develop adaptable skills. Ecommerce, for instance, is growing wildly and there is a greater need for LP people. I think the retail industry’s transformation requires the LP practitioners to transform as well.

Siberia, Russia: No alarms and exits blocked as Russia shopping mall fire kills at least 64
With the fire alarms silent and staff reportedly nowhere to be seen, a fire at a shopping mall packed with children and their parents on the first weekend of the school recess killed at least 64 people in eastern Russia. The fire at the Winter Cherry mall in Kemerovo, a city in Siberia, about 3,000 kilometres east of Moscow, was extinguished by Monday morning after burning through the night. Firefighters were still recovering bodies as parts of the buildings were still smoldering. Some of the dead were found inside a cinema. Sixty-four deaths were confirmed after the firefighters finished combing through the four floors of the mall.

Citi sets restrictions on gun sales by retail clients
Citigroup Inc (C.N) added restrictions on firearms sales for new retail-sector clients, the Wall Street bank said on Thursday, the strongest move to date by a major U.S. lender following last month’s high school shooting in Florida.

In an emailed statement Citi said it will require those clients only sell firearms to customers who have passed a background check, restrict firearms sales for buyers under 21, and not sell so-called “bump stocks” or high-capacity magazines.

Your 'role will be removed': Whole Foods fires workers in 7-minute leaked conference call
Amazon Centralizing Marketing - Store Signage Operations at Whole Foods - eliminating jobs

The move follows the departure of more than a dozen executives who have left due to cultural differences with new owner Amazon.

The cultural clash between the two companies was not unexpected, and mergers frequently result in staff shakeouts and corporate defections.

Significant changes have been long overdue at Whole Foods, which has some of the highest operating costs in the industry. Many have called for the grocer cut back on its workforce and product count. But while Whole Foods has lost out to the competition in recent years, the grocer's brand remains very valuable.

More retailers opening stores than closing them, NRF study says
The annual “The State of Retailing Online” study conducted by NRF and Forrester examines the impact of ecommerce and provides key metrics for benchmarking. The survey examines retailer attitudes and investment levels for critical digital commerce issues. This year’s results demonstrate that the line between the digital and physical worlds is blurring as the retail landscape continues to evolve, with many retailers focusing on digital store initiatives in 2018.

Key findings from this year’s report include:

Net-net, stores are growing: More surveyed retailers say they will be opening stores in 2018 versus closing them. This outlook contrasts with claims that the physical retail world is being displaced by ecommerce and is therefore doomed.

Omnichannel remains a key store investment area: Efforts like in-store pickup and endless-aisle investments have been a recurring theme for digital retailers for years, and continue in 2018 as retailers recognize these initiatives are often multiyear endeavors.

Digital retail continues to be the bright spot it’s been for years: Retailers continue to experience success in their ecommerce businesses, which have been buoyed by strong mobile commerce performance and improvements in key metrics like conversion rates.

Spotlight on ADT/Protection 1

ADT Adds Video Alarm Verification Services to its Award-Winning ADT Pulse® Platform

Improve Police Response Times and Reduce False Alarm Fees with the Ease-of-Use and Convenience of ADT Pulse

BOCA RATON, Fla. - ADT, the leader in security and automation solutions for homes and businesses in North America, has announced the availability of video alarm verification services specifically designed for small and medium-sized businesses through its ADT Pulse solution.

A multi-step verification process, which includes video alarm verification, has the potential to vastly cut down on false alarms and increase police response. Video enhanced alarm systems can provide police with valuable information during the dispatch process. Visually confirming a human presence in a facility is significant and desirable information for police when responding to an alarm.

With ADT’s Video Alarm Verification, alarms from your security system trigger video clips from the Pulse cameras. Both the alarm event and video footage are sent to the ADT Monitoring Center and to your Pulse app on your PC or Smart Phone. The monitoring center professional will review the video clip and contact the individuals on the call list. In the case of an actual event, our monitoring center professionals will contact the authorities and provide them with descriptions of the incident and individuals visible on the video helping to facilitate a prioritized response. With notification of a confirmed crime in progress, local authorities have the information they need to respond quickly, helping to reduce losses to property and assets while helping to increase the probability of criminal apprehension.

ADT Pulse acts as your online security toolkit, allowing you to go to one place to manage your site activity. Pulse gives you actionable data and analytics related to events at your business and stores your video for 30 days. With ADT Pulse, you have the ability to connect and monitor up to 10 cameras per location.

“Adding video alarm verification features to our award-winning Pulse platform was a natural extension for this solution,” stated Ray North, ADT’s Director, Service Platforms. “Pulse has been delivering state-of-the-art alarm management capabilities to our small business clients for years, with video alarm verification we can now offer the same benefits that Pulse has always offered coupled with the potential to reduce false alarm dispatches and improved response times from local authorities – a win-win for everyone involved.”

Spain: Police arrest ATM Hacker Behind $1.2 Billion Swindle
The mastermind behind malware attacks that programmed ATMs to spit out cash on demand and caused more than 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) of losses, has been arrested in Spain.

The leader of a criminal gang that carried out the malware attacks known as Carbanak and Cobalt was detained in Alicante following an investigation by Spanish police, Europol and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. Spain’s Interior Ministry named the suspect as Denis K, a Ukrainian national. Europol, the European Union agency for law enforcement cooperation, said in a statement that Romanian, Belorussian and Taiwanese authorities also took part in the manhunt.

The organized crime group has been operating since 2013, targeting over 100 financial institutions around the world in heists of as much as 10 million euros per operation. The malware they created could instruct ATMs to dispense cash at a pre-determined time, with gang members waiting by the machines collecting the money.

They also used the e-payment network to transfer money from banks into criminal accounts, and used access to databases to inflate bank account balances in order to collect the money using mules, Europol said. Europol said the profits were laundered using cryptocurrencies to buy luxury houses and cars.

Four types of employees who are potential threats to business success
Academics have identified four types of employees who can become a threat to their companies – and explained the reasons why their workplace behavior declines.

Researchers from the Universities of Glasgow and Coventry found organizational change within a company can act as an important trigger prompting even loyal and longstanding employees’ behavior to worsen.

The results of this range from time-wasting in the office to giving away confidential business information to competitors.

They identified types of employees – omitters, slippers, retaliators and serial transgressors – who carry out this ‘counterproductive work behavior’ and the factors which cause it, in their new report.

Their findings have been used to create a series of resources to help employers manage organizational change and to try to prevent this behavior by staff.

The project – funded by the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) – collected data from a company undergoing organizational change.

60% of Companies Failing to Train To Just Keep Up
Tech vs. training: Where should business focus cybersecurity spending?

Cybersecurity budget is completely one sided on spending for that tool-perspective, whereas we need to start making that shift and look at investing in the training. If we do not invest in the skills, then cybersecurity professionals are not going to know how to use the technology or how to use methodologies to implement the technology effectively.

A lot of organizations will spend all kinds of money on technology and not fully utilize them. This is something that as a risk assessor, when I go into an organization, that's what I'll look at. What do they have for technologies and how well they are being implemented?

Calif. Employers Should Assess Workers’ Computer Crime Baggage
When people switch jobs, both sets of employers face known risks. The former employers risk their former employees decamping with their trade secrets. And the new employers risk inviting trade secret lawsuits.

But that's not all. A related risk lurks in the background, one that you might not know of and that could expose your company to criminal liability. Or, more likely, a risk that would be an additional arrow in a plaintiff's quiver.

The risk is computer fraud claims. Maybe your new employee never deleted her prior corporate e-mail account from her phone, and the competitor never invalidated her access credentials (or delayed in doing so). That alone might be enough for a claim under the California Comprehensive Computer Data Access and Fraud Act.

New and former employers alike should try to cut off these claims before they arise. New employers should ensure that new employees remove their former employers' e-mail accounts. And former employers should immediately void the former employees' access credentials.

But if it's too late for that, read on to learn how to bring and defend against these claims.

Microsoft To Ban 'Offensive Language & Fraudulent Activity' on Skype & Office
Claiming right to go through your private data to 'investigate'

Spotted first by US civil rights advocate Jonathan Corbett and reported on his blog Professional Troublemaker, Microsoft has amended the Code of Conduct section of the ‘Microsoft Services Agreement’ to prohibit “use of offensive language and fraudulent activity”. The agreement in question applies to a whole host of Microsoft services, such as Skype, Office 365, OneDrive, Cortana, Xbox and more, and will come into effect from May 1, 2018.

As part of the new terms and conditions for using its services, the company cautions users from publicly sharing “inappropriate content or material (involving, for example, nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity)” on its platform or using its services.

The policy is now being criticized in some quarters for being inordinately vague with its new terms and conditions, as there’s no objective definition of what may constitute “offensive language”.

Another point that’s raising the hackles of privacy advocates is the implication that the company will apparently reserve the right to go through an user’s personal history to “investigate” if they’ve broken the new diktats.

Lastly, the use of the word publicly also adds to the ambiguity as Skype calls cannot be considered public as they are usually one-to-one. Would sharing of conspiracy theories written on Microsoft Word and sent via Outlook be considered making it public? A lot of questions remain.

Is Amazon "Complicit" in the Widespread Availability of Counterfeit Goods on its Platform?
“When someone goes to the lengths of making counterfeits of your products, it's a sign you're doing something right. And it deserves a minute of flattery,” says Casey Hopkins, the founder of industrial design firm Elevation Lab. But, he counters, “when Chinese counterfeiters tool up and make copies of your product, send that inventory to Amazon, then overtake the real product by auto-lowering the price – it's a real problem. Customers are unknowingly buying crap versions of the product, while both Amazon and the scammers are profiting, and the reputation you've built goes down the toilet.”

Mr. Hopkins, who founded Elevation Lab in Portland in 2008, is sick of Amazon’s “complicity” in the widespread sale of counterfeit goods. And he is not the first to say so. In fact, he is among the likes of Mercedes Benz’s parent company, Daimler AG, which made very similar claims last fall when it filed a striking lawsuit against in federal court in Los Angeles, alleging that the Seattle-based e-commerce giant has engaged in trademark infringement by selling counterfeit Mercedes wheel caps.

In addition to alleging that “Amazon itself sells infringing items as ‘Ships from and sold by’ products,” Daimler asserts that Amazon has repeatedly failed to “establish processes that would better detect and deter infringement.” By opting to not take robust steps to weed out counterfeit goods from its site, whether they are marketed and shipped by third-parties or by Amazon, itself, Daimler claims that Amazon is “opening the door for masses of counterfeiters and scammers to exploit the system at the expense of legitimate brands and customers alike.”

Cutting Edge Tech Retailers Attracting The Most
Amazon tops LinkedIn's best places to work list

Amazon topped LinkedIn’s list of America’s 50 best places to work, according to a list released Wednesday that also included disruptors like Uber, Airbnb, Alphabet, Facebook and Salesforce.

The list also includes Apple (number six), French fashion conglomerates LVMH (19) and Kering (38) as well as Nike (35) and Starbucks (46). Companies with some retail operations, like Disney, Dell, Verizon, Tesla and WeWork, also made the list.

The list, which was formulated based on billions of actions taken by LinkedIn members (but didn’t include LinkedIn itself or owner Microsoft), focused on four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention, according to a blog post from LinkedIn Editor in Chief Daniel Roth.

Perhaps it’s no surprise that many of the retailers on LinkedIn’s list are also on the cutting edge of technology, not least Amazon, which is as much a tech company as a seller of goods.

Chicago, IL: Police recover over $1 million in stolen goods from massive fencing ring
There is some very pricey equipment among the generators, snow blowers and power tools. Police are cutting some of the red tape, in the hopes victims will come forward to claim their stolen things. Forty-five-year-old Norma Argueta of Maywood was arrested and charged with felony theft after police recovered more than 400 pieces of commercial-grade equipment and tools worth at least $1 million dollars.

Queens, NY: Counterfeit credit card ring busted in Flushing; 400 cards seizes and over $100,000 of cosmetics, perfume and cologne
A Flushing-based counterfeit credit card ring has been dismantled, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. Three Flushing residents were charged with running a counterfeit credit card operation in which they allegedly forged charge cards and made tens of thousands of dollars in purchases of designer fragrances, makeup and skin care products, the DA said. Police also allegedly found drugs, handguns and ammunition in the house they shared with a 2-year-old.

The Quince Avenue residents were identified as Jinwei Chen, 34; Deng Deng Li, 27; and Yue Yuan, 27. Police executed a search warrant on their Flushing home March 9 and allegedly found multiple loaded guns and ammo. The complaint said police also recovered two credit card embossers, two credit card reader/writer machines, two credit card stampers, over 400 forged credit cards, 85 fake driver’s licenses and 750 blank credit cards and a box containing the drug, ketamine.

Brown said that police also found receipts for purchases made at Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and other department stores, along with more than $22,000 in cash. Police also allegedly recovered $100,000 of unopened packages of Lancome, Clinique, Shiseido, Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, Chanel, Gucci and Cartier makeup, fragrances and skin care items.
Brown said there were also Beats by Dre headphones, Canada Goose winter coats and cell phones. The DA said his office will continue to work diligently to eradicate this kind of credit card fraud and to keep illegal guns off the streets of Queens.

“The defendants in this case are accused of operating a sophisticated credit card manufacturing mill with embossing machines, card writers and hundreds of blank credit cards,” he said. “Police also allegedly recovered receipts from numerous purchases made at high-end department stores. The defendants’ alleged crimes not only victimized the department stores, but also consumers. Furthermore, police allegedly recovered illegal guns and ammunition and drugs in the home where a 2-year-old baby lives.”

According to Brown, Yuan was released on her own recognizance. Brown said bail was set at $100,000 and $50,000 for Chen and Li, respectively. They were expected in court April 17.
