CEC Response to Class Action Suit
Filed Against Leading Retailers
is disappointed by this California law firm and its filing, but
unfortunately, our company is the victim of a lawsuit that is
opportunistic, with no regard for the potential damage they might
cause to good people who benefit from the second chance that a
program like CEC can offer. We see this as a clear intent to
strong-arm our retail partners. It is a sad day when law firms twist
legality to their own benefit.
This lawsuit, while accusing our company of extortion, is extortive
by nature. This firm is actively soliciting former beneficiaries of
our program to engage in a lawsuit for a settlement. The track
record of this firm indicates this is their pattern of operation.
Our retail partners are trying to solve an ever growing problem
without adding to the burdens of an already over worked justice
system, they are trying to make communities safer and help good
people improve their lives. This lawsuit is frivolous and distorts
the facts about CEC and its retail partners' efforts to find a
win-win situation for the difficult problem of retail theft.

Starbucks CEO Calls for Unconscious Bias Training
The arrest of two black men for trespassing when they refused to leave a
Starbucks in Philadelphia last week
has sparked national outrage. The chain's CEO has promised to review company
policies and procedures and implement unconscious bias training.
One of the men had asked to use the coffee shop's restroom but was told it
was for paying customers only and the men had not purchased anything. They were
waiting for a friend and remained at the store. Police arrived after employees
called 911. The men were arrested and handcuffed as their friend arrived. They
were released when Starbucks did not press charges.
Mayor Jim Kenney said he asked the city's Commission on Human Relations to
examine Starbucks' policies and procedures, "including the extent of, or need
for, implicit bias training for its employees."
Starbucks to Shut Stores Nationwide for
Racial-Bias Training After Arrests
Starbucks said on Tuesday it would close more than 8,000 of its stores in the
United States on May 29 to conduct racial-bias training for nearly 175,000
The move comes amid an outcry prompted by the arrests of two African-American
men at a Starbucks location in Philadelphia last week.
“I’ve spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening
to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to
fix it,” Kevin R. Johnson, the company’s chief executive, said in a statement
announcing the training.
Starbucks' racial blunder shows it's too invested
in the 'yoga-pants' set and must diversify culture, PR exec says
Scholars who study corporate embarrassments said Starbucks was using corporate
textbook moves from the social-media playbook to limit damage to the chain’s
brand and reputation in the wake of police handcuffing and removing two
African American men from a Rittenhouse Square-area store last week.
“In the old days they’d jump out quickly and apologize,” even without the facts
— but now the steps are different, says Americus Reed, professor of marketing at
Penn’s Wharton School, who advises companies on “brand crises.”
To keep loyal users coming back, the first step is to “validate concern” by
“recognizing it’s not a good situation, it’s a horrible thing that’s happened” —
without necessarily apologizing, because “your information is usually
incomplete," Reed said.
“Two, you show action.” By telling protesters on Sunday that the chain was
taking responsibility, then on Monday that the manager who reported the men to
the police had agreed with the company she should leave the store, Starbucks
moved fast to show “there are things we are putting in place to make sure it
doesn’t happen again.” And by responding fast and continuously, Starbucks
was working to “control the narrative. Get out front with your public relations
story before competitors or folks that don’t like you.”
In Starbucks incident, Philly cops and employees
acted 'in accordance with the law,' says police watchdog group

Third Top Exec is Out at Nike
Nike’s Head of Diversity Leaves During Review of Corporate Culture
Sneaker giant began internal probe of misconduct last month
An official at Nike Inc. in charge of overseeing diversity and inclusion efforts
has left the sportswear giant, bringing fresh upheaval to a company already
grappling with misconduct among its executives.
Last month, two top executives
were pushed out, after Nike learned of inappropriate behavior at the
company, including one of the favorites to succeed Chief Executive Officer Mark
In response, the company has said it’s reviewing how it deals with complaints
and is designing new management training. It will also increase funding for
internal diversity networks and expand anti-bias education.
“We became aware of some behavioral issues that are inconsistent with Nike’s
values of inclusivity, respect and empowerment,” Parker said during an earnings
call with analysts on March 22. “I’m committed to ensure that we have an
environment where every Nike employee can have a positive experience and reach
their full potential.”
People are often too embarrassed to react to
emergencies at work
Here's how to stay safe should the worst happen
Employers need to adopt flexible emergency plans and policies that empower
employees to trust their intuition, rather than static ones.
For example, instead of instructing everyone to evacuate the building and meet
up at a neighboring McDonald's, Barton said to order employees to clear out in
the event of an emergency and keep moving until they feel safe enough to stop.
That's because a static plan can endanger lives, in the event of unforeseen
circumstances like a second perpetrator or an attacker who's aware of an
office's contingency plans. A flexible plan should encourage individuals to take
swift action and do whatever they need to do to make themselves safe.
This sort of instinct-driven action is key to dealing with any kind of workplace
emergency, Barton said. But it's especially hard for people to trust their guts
at work, since people are often lulled into a false sense of security there.
He said people at work need to boost their "situational awareness" in order to
better deal with sudden danger.
In the office, people often experience a sense of disbelief and paralysis when
dangers do arise. Barton said he's interviewed numerous survivors of violent
incidents in the workplace. Many describe freezing up and not taking the
opportunity to flee.

Spotlight on Gatekeeper Systems
theft is considered by most successful LP executives as a leading cause of loss
to their respective organizations. However, because it is not easily detected,
it is impossible to know exactly how severe the epidemic truly is. It is
extremely difficult to identify every time a pushout theft occurs but when it
does, a massive amount of loss is immediately realized.
Unlike the amateur who may occasionally steal a $10 lipstick, it doesn’t take
many pushout thefts at $562/incident to wreak havoc on financial shrink results.
Presenting top executives with non-confrontational solutions that protect
shopping carts from being stolen, as well as prevent push-out thefts from
occurring, is a solid way to show value in any organization that prides itself
on employee safety and inventory shortage prevention.
By utilizing the industry’s best-practice capital request processes described in
this e-Book, LP professionals will have a much better chance of implementing
their winning shrink reduction strategies, especially those that solve
shrink-related, profit-eroding issues in a non-confrontational way.

Facebook Deletes 120 Cybercrime Discussion Groups Totaling 300,000 Members
Hours after being alerted by KrebsOnSecurity, Facebook last week deleted almost
120 private discussion groups totaling more than 300,000 members who flagrantly
promoted a host of illicit activities on the social media network’s platform.
The scam groups facilitated a broad spectrum of shady activities, including
spamming, wire fraud, account takeovers, phony tax refunds, 419 scams,
denial-of-service attack-for-hire services and botnet creation tools. The
average age of these groups on Facebook’s platform was two years.
launches AI and facial recognition retail LP system
AI company DeepCam has come
out of stealth mode after three years, launching the Retail by DeepCam
plug-and-play system for retail loss prevention and operational cost reduction
at last week’s ISC West conference.
Retail by DeepCam is designed for multi-location stores, including those that
already have a loss prevention system, according to the announcement. It
includes proprietary technology for biometric matching among large populations,
behaviour analytics, and cross-camera event association. DeepCam Advice
identifies shoplifting and suspicious behaviour requiring further attention, and
loss prevention personnel review incidents to tag shoplifters, with the system
notifying employees so the individual can be stopped and banned from the store.
“When you have a small population, such as an office building, facial
recognition is easy,” said Don Knasel, DeepCam Founder and CEO. “Where
biometrics fail is with large populations - tens of thousands or hundreds of
thousands of people - and that’s what sets our AI technology and recommendation
engine apart. Our systems have been proven to work accurately with large
populations in the millions.”
Knasel noted that some stores catch as few as 10 percent of shoplifters. DeepCam’s retail offering can improve that number, while also delivering
wide-ranging retail intelligence, the company says, such as identifying shopping
habits by demographic, or the number of customers at a given time.
A recent report from the National Law Review warned retailers to be prepared for
consumer privacy laws to evolve as they consider implementing facial recognition
How Intelligent Video Surveillance Can Detect Shoplifting Occurrences
Many types of businesses, from hotels to hospitals, could benefit from a single
solution: connected intelligent video surveillance. Digital Journal spoke with
Andreas Pettersson is the CEO of Arcules to discovery more about business video
What is connected intelligent video?
Connected intelligent video uses cloud technologies and artificial intelligence
to generate advanced analytics, transforming enterprise video and IoT sensor
data into actionable insights. Video is not always the first platform that
businesses think of when it comes to IoT, but it is an extremely useful tool for
decision-making. Video provides real-time data that can improve business
security and maximize competitive edge.
Which types of business might benefit from this technology?
Connected Intelligent video capabilities can aid several industries. Video can
improve both asset protection measures, as well as, optimize businesses for
growth. The combination of video, IoT and advanced analytics enables the
security industry to move from reactive to preventative actions. threats can be
addressed with less human intervention, meaning that it can help a security
guard identify a safety risk quicker than if he were monitoring screens alone.
Video can also act as a business optimization consultant. The technology can
provide close observations that regular employees simply cannot, such as minute
employee actions or customer interactions. These small detections are then
aggregated and evaluated to find solutions for inefficiencies or obstacles that
keep a business from maximizing productivity. For example, video surveillance
can analyze foot patterns in retail stores and suggest where poorly selling
products can be more prominently displayed.
What types of inferences can be drawn from video data?
Video cloud IoT as a service employs powerful analytics to find correlations
between video and IoT sensors data. Real-time analytics of cross-sensor data
help companies move from reactive to preventative and predictive measures.
Examples include loss prevention in retail. Intelligent video is able to detect
shoplifting and “sweethearting” discrepancies sooner than a human monitoring
video footage would. All industries have similar use cases that range from
asset protection to business optimization across locations and geographies.
UBA - User Behavior Analytics
User behavior analytics (UBA) is the tracking, collecting and assessing of user
data and activities using monitoring systems.
UBA technologies analyze historical data logs -- including network and
authentication logs collected and stored in log management and
SIEM systems -- to identify patterns of traffic caused by user behaviors,
both normal and malicious. UBA systems are primarily intended to provide
cybersecurity teams with actionable insights. While UBA systems don't take
action based on their findings, they can be configured to automatically adjust
the difficulty of authenticating users who show anomalous behavior.
Today, user behavior analytics tools have more advanced profiling and exception
monitoring capabilities than SIEM systems and are used for two main functions.
First, UBA tools can be used to determine a baseline of normal activities
specific to the organization and its individual users. Second, they can also be
used to identify deviations from normal. UBA uses
big data and
machine learning algorithms to assess these deviations in near-real time.
While applying user behavior analytics to just one user may not be useful for
finding malicious activity, running it on a large scale can give an organization
the ability to detect malware or
other potential cybersecurity threats, such as data exfiltration,
insider threats and compromised

"King of Traffic Distribution" Busted
Huge Malware Distribution Network Crippled
'EITest' Shuffled as Many as 2 Million Users a Day to Malware
From 52,000 Compromised Servers & Websites
Security researchers are claiming at least a temporary victory over an
enormously productive malware distribution scheme that shuffled as many as 2
million users a day from legitimate websites to malware.
The networked, dubbed EITest, leveraged compromised websites to direct users
tech support schemes and exploit kits. EITest, noticed as far back as 2011,
had been dubbed the "king of traffic distribution."
Malware researcher Kafeine,
who works for Proofpoint, writes that users who encountered a website tampered
with by EITest are now being redirected to a sinkhole set up by researchers. The
sinkhole, which is a non-malicious domain, became active on March 15.
The sinkhole has revealed the scale of EITest. In just under three weeks, the
sinkhole notched 44 million requests from 52,000 compromised servers and
EITest relied on infecting legitimate websites with code that redirected users
to a constantly changing list of domains leading to booby trapped servers. Of
the 52,000 sites observed since the sinkhole was set up, most appeared to be
running the content management system WordPress.
States Want to Force Online Retailers to Collect Billions
in Sales Tax
States and traditional retailers are asking the court to overturn a 26-year-old
ruling that exempts many internet merchants from collecting billions of dollars
in sales taxes. The 1992 decision says retailers can be forced to collect the
tax only if they have a physical presence in a state, such as a store or
A ruling for the states would put new pressure on internet retailers and
marketplaces that don’t always collect taxes -- including Overstock.com Inc.,
Wayfair Inc., Newegg Inc., EBay Inc., Etsy Inc. and thousands of smaller
Broader taxing power would let state and local governments collect an extra $8
billion to $23 billion a year, according to various estimates. Forty-five states
have a statewide sales tax.
What's at stake in the e-commerce sales tax debate
In short, South Dakota proposes striking the Quill physical presence precedent
in favor of an economic one that would instead require state sales tax
collection and remittance if an online seller does more than $100,000 worth of
business or processes more than 200 transactions in the state.
South Dakota argues that ultimately the lingering effects of the Quill decision
have become outdated, and because Congress has not acted on the issue in 25
years, it's a crucial matter for the court. In a brief filed to SCOTUS, the
state argues four main points:
● An economic standard would be easier to administer and more likely to promote
● The South Dakota case serves Quill's goals better than the physical presence
rule considering the companies involved in this case differ greatly from catalog
retailers involved in the 1992 case.
● The practical difficulties of collecting taxes state-by-state have disappeared
thanks to technology and solutions providers.
● Repealing the physical presence rule would not raise problems of retroactive
On the other side, Wayfair claims South Dakota's argument doesn't meet the
"special justification" required to strip the precedent, and further that
forcing companies to implement software to calculate taxes across some 12,000
nationwide taxing jurisdictions is extremely expensive, burdensome — and
potentially life threatening to some businesses.
