Nike's Director of Digital Loss Prevention - a new wave and title - The merging of two officially starts  As the leader of Nike’s Digital Loss Prevention efforts, you will provide leadership for the global fraud risk management function in our digital business. You will be responsible for ensuring our resources are properly aligned to the execution of key priorities, as you develop and implement ecommerce risk management strategies to appropriate tolerance levels based on advanced data analytics and trends. You will maintain industry knowledge of ecommerce fraud trends, performance drivers and the latest developments in fraud protection tools and make recommendations for necessary investments in fraud prevention solutions and strategies in our digital business. Editors note: While virtually all have dedicated executives for online fraud now we're seeing the actual title of "Dir of ... Loss Prevention" added which academically now broadens the scope of traditional LP and opens the door even more so with the IT security group by establishing a "Loss Prevention" seat at the table. That in and of itself positions the LP senior leadership for CSO positions long term. (Source nike.com)

Ahold USA to improve shrink performance with Profitect  The Quincy, Mass.-based grocer, which also operates the Stop & Shop chain, is working with Profitect because of its approach to integrating data quickly with minimal IT resources, while producing actionable opportunities. Giant Landover expects the solution to improve shrink performance by supplementing legacy reporting approaches, which require large volumes of information to be interpreted, and replacing them with automated resolution processes, according to Profitect.

Target Interim CEO - We've 'lost our way by becoming too cautious and bureaucratic'  “We got a little bit risk-averse in making sure things were perfect and we understood the economics. Now, it’s really unshackling ourselves.” We are accelerating how we make decisions,” by giving design and store teams more autonomy and requiring fewer initiatives to be approved by top management, Mulligan said. “It’s just getting more comfortable putting things out there.” The moves are all part of an attempt to get Target back to its roots of upscale discounting, Mulligan said. People equate that with the big designer things,” Mulligan said. “Those are important, but that’s frosting. It’s the everyday innovation. That’s the secret sauce. That was our success.” (Source bloomberg.com)

U.S. State of Cybercrime Takes Another Step Back  When it comes to cybercrime, it seems no enterprise goes unscathed. There are more breaches happening, the associated costs are rising, and business leadership grows increasingly concerned that information security remains a challenge that is out of control. Those are the headline findings of the 2014 U.S. State of Cybercrime Survey. The 12th survey of cybercrime trends, released this week, found on average, the number of security incidents detected by enterprises reached 135 per organization. Unfortunately, more than two thirds of organizations that detected breaches are unable to place a cost on the incidents, and for those that could the average loss totaled $415,000. (Source cio.com)

Identity Fraud sky rockets in the UK - Up 37% in one year  The number of confirmed identity fraud cases increased by 37 per cent between 2012 and 2013, new data reveals. Analysis by credit-checking specialist Experian found that almost 13,000 cases of fraud were confirmed in 2013, with the biggest increases reported in account takeover fraud, loan fraud and mobile phone account-related fraud. Experian said these increases are linked to the online habits of Britons. (Source yourmoney.com)

Census Bureau: Online shopping and mail-order businesses jump 27%  Online shopping is showing rapid growth compared to the rest of the retail trade sector, with the number of establishments growing 27.4% between 2011 and 2012. The number of electronic shopping and mail-order houses establishments grew from 23,697 to 30,185 between 2011 and 2012. Employment climbed 13.7% to 365,508. In contrast, for the retail trade sector as a whole, which includes traditional brick-and-mortar stores, the number of establishments rose just 0.1%, while employment climbed 0.7%.

Apple in Talks with Retailers About Mobile Payments Service  Apple is in talks with several high-profile retail store chains about a mobile payment service, reports 9to5Mac. Citing a source with knowledge of the discussions, the site suggests Apple is speaking with retail store brands that sell luxury clothing and premium goods to gauge interest in such a service. An Apple-branded mobile payment solution would likely be integrated directly into iOS devices, allowing people to use their iPhones or other devices to make purchases for physical goods both on the web as well as in retail stores. Currently, iTunes customers can use their accounts to make purchases in iTunes and in brick and mortar Apple Stores, a feature Apple hopes to expand to third-party retailers. (Source macrumors.com)

Biometrics eyed for secure future payments
Biometrics look like the future of authentication for payments, according to payment experts at the Biometrics Institute Asia Pacific Conference in Sydney. Biometrics makes sense for payments because it's a better experience for customers while simultaneously providing higher security, says Tony Eyles, a product development manager at Kiwibank. While the Spanish Confederation of Savings Banks are testing many types of biometrics, one of its managing directors, Santiago Uriel Arias, warned that not all users will be comfortable handing over personal biometrics data to a bank. A client once told Arias that she give her voice, eye or fingerprint identity data to a policeman, but never to a bank, he said. (Source csoonline.com)

Merchants: “Mobile Commerce is Riskier Than eCommerce”  Kount, a provider of security solutions for card not present transacting, took a closer look at the mobile payments ecosystem, the security concerns that surround it and how merchants are responding. Nearly 2,000 payments and/or fraud professionals including merchants, service providers, acquirers, card associations and issuers were surveyed. What resulted was the second edition of The Mobile Payments & Fraud Survey: 2014, which we have highlighted below. According to Kount’s survey, almost two-thirds of respondents noted that they already actively support a mobile payments channel, while an additional 23 percent plan to support it by the end of this year. And, about 21 percent of merchants polled indicated that they do more than 20 percent of their business via mobile, more than doubling 2010’s 10 percent figure. Merchants are worried about how to protect the mobile channel from fraud. Respondents were more likely to believe that not only is the mobile channel riskier than the eCommerce channel, they believe that they need different tools above and beyond those used currently to manage standard risks associated with e-commerce. Nearly one third of survey respondents reported that using mobile was “somewhat riskier” than standard web commerce – up from just under 25 percent a year ago. (Source pymnts.com)

Apple, Poste Italiane, Barclays Bank, Battle.net and Sparkass were also top brands frequently used as bait by phishermen. (Source pymnts.com)

Canadian Push
Sponsored by Vector Security
Canada’s quirks make expansion there tricky, expert says - a few have failed already  David Marcotte, Kantar Retail’s senior vice president of retail insights Americas, talks about the challenges retailers face in Canada. Many U.S. retailers have moved into Canada by acquiring existing brands, as DSW has done, but often those brands were damaged, as was the case for Liquidation World when Big Lots Inc. came in, and Zellers Inc. when Target Corp. acquired it. “If it was a weak brand to start, it’s going to be a struggle to change that perception,” he said. There are financial challenges too – prices are generally higher in Canada due to tariffs, labor expenses and other factors. While L Brands Inc. has been a success bringing its Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works brands to Canada, it has struggled with La Senza, the Canada-born brand it bought in 2007. Marcotte said that’s an example of the sometimes undefinable quirks another country presents. For better or worse, they all have their own Canadian identity,” he said. Marcotte said La Senza, despite being an upscale brand, used to display products on tables in cardboard boxes. It looked cheap and sloppy, but it had its appeal. “Canadians like to dig through bins,” he said. “I can’t tell you why, but I can just tell you it is.” DSW also will be working around malls and shopping centers, so location may not be an issue. That is something Big Lots ran afoul of in its short-lived entry into the country via Liquidation World. “You had to go and find them,” Marcotte said. “You didn’t see them in any major trade areas.” There are some benefits to business north of the border. E-commerce in Canada is much weaker than it is in the U.S. “You don’t compete online there like you do here,” Marcotte said. “It’s almost impossible to be cheaper online there.” Editors Note: Some U.S. retailers have had a hard go of it with their 'Canadian Push' and new entrants are finding the consumers well entrenched in their habits and buying trends. Some have even said about the Zellers take over that 'You just can't put lipstick on a Zellers,' as their locations for the most part are in old over developed areas that don't have the same curb appeal the new developments have. And quite frankly with their empty shelves and higher prices when they opened a lot of Canadians just walked away. When they expected the prices to be more in line with prices they saw in Target U.S. stores. To some it was almost an insult. It's going to be a hard task to fix that perception and get them back.

Bitcoin’s slow crawl to acceptance in Canadian retail  Customers may see it as complex, risky and not worth the risk, but retailers see an upside. Some view Bitcoin as a way to liberate consumers and merchants alike from the so-called tyranny of transaction fees and central banks. It’s a hit in tech-savvy circles, where it can be used to pay for an increasing number of of goods and services online. And its use has been spreading to brick and mortar merchants too – adventurous independent coffee shops, restaurants and electronics stores world-round, to name a few. (Source marketingmag.ca)

Canadian Tire - not wasting time - Opens 'Showroom' store in Toronto - An Omni-store  Canadian Tire’s experimental new showroom is taking cues from online shopping in an effort to create a more cohesive consumer experience across the retailer’s channels. Opened on Saturday, the 16,000-square-foot showroom at the retailer’s Leaside location in Toronto features 35 digital touch displays the size of large-screen TVs, a pickup area for online orders and bulk purchases made in store, and merchandise organized to match the way it’s displayed online. The new “living lab,” focusing mostly on seasonal products like barbecues and patio furniture, was built to serve as a “test and learn” experience for the retailer before it rolls out the new display techniques to its 490 stores across the country.

Tap-and Go credit cards drive 45% increase in fraud in Victoria - Police want cards scrapped  POLICE in Victoria want tap-and-go credit cards scrapped because of a huge surge in fraud, but card issuers say they can’t see a problem. The rate of deception offences has jumped 45per cent in Victoria, which police say is the main reason for a 5per cent rise in the total crime rate. Deputy Commissioner Lucinda Nolan said tap-and-go credit cards were being stolen and used for a number of small transactions, often before the owner was aware they had been robbed. Tap-and-go, or contactless, credit cards allow purchases of less than $100 to be made without a signature or PIN. (Source theherald.com)

"70% of Target's directors should be removed for inadequate data breach preparation & response," says ISS  Recently, Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), a proxy adviser, suggested that seven of 10 directors at the retail giant be removed from office because the board of directors did not do enough to prevent the massive data breach from late last year - which, according to various estimates, resulted in fraudulent charges between $240 million and $2.2 billion. There has been speculation that the Target breach might have been preventable. ISS wants the Target directors removed who were assigned to manage risk, and wants the company shareholders to remove them. An annual meeting is scheduled for June 11. "It appears that failure of the committees to ensure appropriate management of these risks set the stage for the data breach, which has resulted in significant losses to the company and its shareholders," ISS wrote in statement quoted by The Wall Street Journal. In response to the breach, Target took “reactionary” steps after the fact, such as hiring a new chief information officer. (Source insidecounsel.com)

Mining the knowledge network: the business case for open data  It’s no longer a dog-eat-dog world out there: organisations are learning that transparency and cooperation can pay. But can commercial companies learn the lessons of public sector open data schemes, and are their IT departments – and their infrastructure – ready? The scepticism around whether a certain level of transparency can be profitable for companies is understandable because of the instinct for asset protection. However, explains Gartner analyst Frank Buytendijk, many businesses are discovering that releasing some of their own data can be a competitive differentiator in a market where more and more customers are starting to care about how data can improve their lives.

Eighty percent of consumers believe total data privacy no longer exists  The vast majority (80%) of consumers aged 20-40 in the United States and the United Kingdom believe total privacy in the digital world is a thing of the past, and nearly half (49%) said they would not object to having their buying behavior tracked if it would result in relevant offers from brands and suppliers, a new study by Accenture shows. More than half (56%) say they are trying to safeguard their privacy by inputting their credit card information each time they make an online purchase rather than having that data stored for future use.

War veteran shoots and kills alleged GameStop store robber in Houston  A 28-year-old Marine veteran killed a robbery suspect in a wild shootout in the parking lot of a shopping center in northeast Harris County. Sheriff's deputies are not identifying the man who they say was having lunch at a sandwich shot next door when he saw the suspect and an accomplice put on hoodies and bandannas in the parking lot at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, and go into a GameStop store located at Wallisville Rd and Beltway 8. Harris Co. Sheriff's Deputy Thomas Gilliland says the Marine veteran walked out to his truck and armed himself with a pistol while the suspects were inside the store. They robbed a clerk, and took cash and computer games, then ran outside to their getaway car to find the veteran waiting for them. "At that point, the robber raised his pistol and aimed it at the 28-year-old male," Gilliland said. "Fearing for his life, he exchanged gunfire with the robber. After several rounds were fired the robber attempted to leave in the vehicle. He was struck and killed as he was sitting inside the vehicle." The second suspect ran when the shooting started. Witnesses saw him stripping off his clothes as he attempted to get away. (Source click2houston.com)

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

Flexibility and molding to the environment you're in is the first step towards integration and inclusion. In order to be absolutely effective, an executive must first become one with their surroundings and mold to what it is as opposed to expecting them to mold to you. Seeing and hearing those subtle differences is the key and changing to it becomes the objective. Once modified, you then have the freedom to influence change and make a difference.
