Watchdog group blasts Google for ads tied to credit card fraud  The Digital Citizens Alliance says it found thousands of search results on providing information on how to obtain stolen credit card account numbers. Google says it has “stringent” ad guidelines and removes “millions” of videos from YouTube every year that violate its policies. Theft of credit card account information is making many consumers reluctant to shop online, according to new research commissioned by Digital Citizens Alliance. At the same time, the Internet watchdog group says online search leader Google Inc. is profiting from ads that offer to sell stolen credit card data. The alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public and government officials on Internet-based threats to payment security and other matters, says it conducted searches earlier this month on that showed thousands of videos in search results “that could lead” to sellers of stolen credit card data.

NRF hails Obama’s Supreme Court setback
Executive authority suffered a blow this week when the U.S. Supreme Court sided with Pepsi distributor Noel Canning in a dispute over president Barack Obama’s use of an arcane “recess appointments” clause to load the National Labor Relations Board with pro-union choices. “The Supreme Court decision demonstrates that President Obama seriously erred in his attempt to circumvent Congress when he packed the NLRB with pro-union advocates. The court rightfully defended and protected the constitutional role of the U.S. Senate to provide advice and consent on executive appointments,” NRF SVP of government relations David French said in a statement. “While the decision does not affect the current composition of the NLRB since new board members have been seated with Senate consent, it does invalidate several important board decisions that will now have to be considered again by the new board.” (Source

Survey: Screening uncovers resume lies
More than nine-in-10 (93%) retailers who have conducted background screening of job applicants have discovered lies on resumes. According to the 2014 HireRight Employee Screening Benchmark Report, 71% of retailers said background screening uncovers issues that would not have been otherwise found. Retail survey respondents said better employees are the number one benefit of background screening. In addition, 49% said more consistent safety and security is a key benefit. Thirty-nine percent of retail respondents integrate screening with an applicant tracking system. (Source

Despite Target, Retailers Still Weak On Third-Party Security  The Target beach should have taught companies a lesson about the risks of letting business partners run pell-mell around one's network without paying any mind to their own security posture. However, according to new research from TripWire, at least one-quarter of retailers have not yet learned that lesson. On one end of the spectrum, 12% of retailers who responded say they require third-party partners to pony up regular reports on vulnerability scans on their network and Web applications. On the other end of the spectrum, 26% said, "We don't evaluate the security of our business partners." In fact only 70% of respondents said that the Target breach affected the level of attention that their businesses' executives pay to security. This number was even lower (57%) for online-only retailers. (Source

Why HCE Is Causing A Revolution In Mobile Payment Security  When considering the security of customer payment credentials, host card emulation (HCE) has caused waves in the industry. Before the advent of HCE, storage models came in two versions; either storing credentials in a specialist security chip [secure element (SE)] in the phone, or using card-on-file credentials in the cloud. The first model effectively turns the phone into a mobile wallet, with the SE performing the same function as the chip on an EMV card. The “cloud” option, however, was simply a case of storing basic payment information, such as card number and expiry date or sort code and account number on the Internet. An exact software representation of the card no longer needs to reside on a physical chip since HCE has come along. This eliminates the need for the previously all-important SE and puts an end to the battle for ownership of it, lowering barriers to market entry for new players. (Source

Top 3 Canadian Grocers for 2014 - By the numbers and by actual store visits by a 'Legendary investor'  Legendary investor Peter Lynch said it best: “Visiting stores and testing products is one of the critical elements of the analyst’s job”. With that in mind, what is the one thing we all do every week? We head over to the nearest grocery store and load our shopping cart with the essentials for the coming days. Day in day out, these stores take in a meaningful percentage of our hard-earned cash, so why not try and get some income from this essential service? 1st Place - Metro, 2nd Place - Sobey's owned by Empire Co., and 3rd place - the biggest retailer in Canada - Loblaw Companies.

Hudson's Bay Corp. may sell some stores real estate to fund remodel's & Saks Fifth Avenue's Canadian Entry  HBC owns several massive Canadian flagships, with a combined worth into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Last January it sold its 850,000 square foot Queen Street Toronto flagship (and adjacent office tower) to Cadillac Fairview for $650 million. Cadillac Fairview, in turn, merged Hudson's Bay with the Toronto Eaton Centre, creating Canada's second-largest mall. Saks Fifth Avenue will occupy 150,000 square feet within the Hudson's Bay building as a result, and similar deals could happen in other Canadian cities. (Source

U.S. "invasion" causing more heat for Canadian brands - the pressure is on!  Bob Kirke, executive director, Canadian Apparel Federation, said there has been a plateau of U.S. retailers coming into Canada, except on the luxury side, in part because of Target’s costly failure. “We don’t have a marketplace to support that many more stores. Our market is only so big – it’s California,” said Kirke. The entry of Walmart into the Canadian marketplace in 1994 was a seismic shift, said Kirke. In 2004, the elimination of import quotas opened up what had been a restricted market in Canada. After the financial crisis of 2008, which started in the U.S., American retailers began looking to Canada as a source of growth. Harris said Canadian players don’t have the same deep pockets that global companies like H&M have to invest in stores to make sure they keep up with the times. "I believe there are at least three or four retailers who are hanging on by their fingertips and will go out of business after the New Year,” said Harris. “Most of them will survive, but for how long and how profitable will they be? Will they ever be as profitable as they were 20 years ago? Absolutely not.” (Source

Small formats in future for Walmart Canada? - You are where your leader takes you...  With the number of discount stores suitable for conversion dwindling, Walmart is again poised to follow the pattern of growth unfolding in the U.S. where the emphasis increasingly has shifted to smaller stores operating under the banners of Neighborhood Market, Walmart Express and Walmart To Go. The hiring of former Delhaize CEO Dirk Van den Berghe supports the thesis that Canada soon will see the development of alternative formats. None of the stores he led looked anything like the units Walmart operates in Canada which are massive by comparison. Even the company’s traditional Delhaize supermarkets average only about 20,000-sq.-ft., roughly half the size of a typical Walmart Neighborhood Market which is regarded as a small format in the U.S. (Source

DNA could help solve 5-year-old Toronto pharmacy robbery case  Ryan Straker was found guilty Wednesday afternoon in a Jefferson County courtroom of an armed robbery at the Toronto Apothecary Pharmacy in November 2009. He will be sentenced next Tuesday morning. Earlier in the day, after hearing from two expert witnesses with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the defense asked the judge to dismiss the aggravated robbery charge, saying the state hadn’t provided enough evidence. Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge David Henderson overruled, partly because of testimony heard Wednesday morning on how DNA from the hood and cuffs of a sweatshirt hit in a DNA database, matching it to Straker.

iBeacon technology coming to a retail store near you  Within the retail sector, iBeacon technology is being applied as a method to overcome the threat of ‘showrooming’, whereby customers visit shops to examine products on the shelves before purchasing them at a lower price online. Several American retailers have so far used iBeacon technology to great success. For example, Macy’s was the first retailer to trial iBeacon technology across its stores in New York and San Francisco. The brand used a mobile app to create ‘ShopBeacons’, enabling Macy’s to track shoppers’ movements throughout the store and produce different offers based on the floor or department the customer is in. When a shopper enters the store, their phone instantly recognises the beacon signal and reminds the shopper to open the mobile app in order to receive walk-in rewards. (Source

"Investors Couldn't Care Less About Data Breaches" 
On May 21, EBay revealed that it had suffered a cyber attack and data security breach, and users’ information—names, account passwords, e-mail addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, and birth dates—was exposed to hackers. While security experts, the news media, and actual EBay users may have all been alarmed, the stock investors weren’t. EBay’s stock finished trading virtually unchanged that day, dropping all of 8 pennies to $51.88. That’s been the trend among companies that have suffered cyber attacks—the stock market practically ignores them. (Source

Fight Breaks Out In TJ Maxx, Ends In Shooting in San Francisco  On Wednesday evening at around 9:20 p.m., a T.J. Maxx shopper was shot just outside the store, following an argument with another customer. According to SFPD, the suspect remains at large. Just what happened inside the store, where the altercation began, is a mystery. CBS SF, which was on the scene last night, called it a “scuffle” that moved from inside the T.J. Maxx at 855 Harrison Street to just outside. Local T.J. Maxx staffers were unable to tell SFist if the men knew one another or what sparked the fight. The victim, who was shot in the torso, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. He is expected to survive. (Source

How to Spot Your Own Strengths and Weaknesses (Before Your Boss Does)  There are so many ways to find out how well you're doing at your job, most of them are all around you. Look for these indicators to help you find out which skills are solid and which ones may need some work. (Repeat mistakes?)

Why You Should Never Cross Your Arms Again  Body language is more innate for us than language or facial expressions, but it's important to remember that our nonverbal communication tightly governs how people think or feel about us. The next time you go to strike that pose, think of these things first. (Just smile)

Why Venting About Work Frustrations Actually Makes You Angrier  The next time you are ready to vent to a colleague or co-worker, think about this first: you are not helping the situation, you're just making your anger worse! Instead of rushing to talk to someone, try these three ideas to help release your anger. (Timeout)

Why You're More Likely to Lie, Cheat and Steal in the Afternoon  Want an honest answer from someone? You better ask them first thing in the morning. A new study suggests that people were more likely to engage in unethical behaviors in the afternoon, when your mental force is weaker. (Fight temptation)

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

Repetition is one of the keys to success. Developing and evolving your approach, your message, your actions and processes and focusing on repetitively delivering them, you'll be able to almost transcend your message and focus on its delivery as opposed to its action. We all have core things we do every day and if you can develop repetitive responses, that ensures continuity, you can then begin to master what you do and truly make an impact on the group you're working with.
