Is security just the store’s concern? Not so fast
Brunswick Group, a business communications firm, among other conclusions finds that 70% of consumers it polled “believe that retailers should be held financially responsible for consumer losses that result from a breach, not banks or card issuers.” (That’s not the most damning of its findings. Brunswick says 61% of respondents believe retailers are directly responsible for the breaches in the first place, almost as many as those—79%—who put the blame on the criminals themselves.) Javelin Strategy & Research, in its own survey, concludes that, in cases of breaches, “consumers tend to avoid retailers the most, compared to other industries such as banking and credit card issuers.” But before bankers take too deep a breath, yet another, global, survey by ACI Worldwide and Aite Group finds not only that fully one in four consumers has been victimized by card fraud in the past year, but that almost a fourth of these have changed their financial institution because of it.

POS Machine Vendor Warns of Possible Payment Card Breach at Restaurants, Including Taco Bell and Dairy Queen  Information Systems & Suppliers (ISS) Inc., the vendor of point-of-sale (POS) electronic cash registers and security systems used by restaurants including Taco Bell and Dairy Queen, has warned its customers that it may have experienced a payment card breach. Due to the better track inventory and accuracy of records, Point-of-sale (POS) systems are being used in most of the industries including restaurants, lodging, entertainment, and museums around the world. It can be easily set-up depending on the nature of the business. Despite that, Point-of-sale (POS) systems are critical components in any retail environment and users are not aware of the emerging threats it poses in near future. So, it is one of the apparent target for cybercriminals and the recent security breach at Information Systems & Suppliers (ISS) proves this. (Source

Survey: Retail shrink translates into $57 billion loss; cash theft jumps 20%  Shrinkage levels average 1.27% of sales, which translates to a $57 billion loss to the industry, according to the U.S. Retail Fraud Survey, which is based on research into the systems and strategies used by 100 leading North American retailers. The biggest area of store loss remains employee theft (38% of shrink), up 3% from last year, according to the study, published by U.K. based Retail Knowledge and sponsored by Volumatic and Kount. It is followed by cash theft (24%), up 20% from last year, administration and book keeping errors (21%), down 9%, and shoplifting (11%), down 15%. (Source

SEC actively investigating data breach at Target and other retailers  The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is reportedly investigating whether Target Corp. adequately protected its data and informed shareholders about the possible consequences relating to its fall 2013 data breach, according to Bloomberg. The report said that Target is one of several public companies that suffered a data breach which is being investigated by the SEC. The prospect of enforcement actions against companies that have been victims of cyberattacks marks a new front in the agency's efforts to combat the rising threat hackers pose to public companies, brokerages and financial markets. Previously, the SEC had focused on guiding public companies on how to disclose those risks and making sure financial companies have adequate defenses against hackers. (Source (Source

Ousted American Apparel CEO hands over stake to hedge fund  Ousted American Apparel Inc (APP.A) Chief Executive Officer Dov Charney has handed over his entire stake and voting rights in the struggling retailer to Standard General LP, enabling the fund to negotiate directly with the independent directors over the company's future, two sources close to the matter said on Wednesday. Earlier Standard General had loaned its American Apparel shares to Charney, according to regulatory documents, allowing him to boost his stake in the company from about 27 percent to 43 percent. Charney had hoped to gain majority control, but American Apparel countered with an anti-takeover plan that prompted him to change his strategy. As a result, the 45-year-old American Apparel founder handed over his entire holdings to his ally Standard General, according to the sources, who requested anonymity because the talks are private.

Cisco uncover cyber criminal group hiding since 2007, malware almost entirely undetectable by anti-virus systems  The so-called ‘String of Paerls' attackers were exposed by Cisco's Jaeson Schultz, Joel Esler and Richard Harman in a 30 June blog as targeting “high-profile, money-rich” industries such as banking, oil, television and jewelry. They are so named because one of their domain names is ‘', mimicking the name of a legitimate UK-based jewelry business, London Pearl Ltd, which supplies cultured pearls and cultured pearl jewelry. Cisco says the criminals have been operating since at least 2007, and have run several different campaigns involving “many pieces of malware”. But they remained hidden because they preyed on small numbers of victims using “extremely targeted” spear phishing emails and adopted various other means to cover their tracks. (Source

Treasury Targets Transnational Criminal Gangs
The U.S. Treasury Department said Wednesday it leveled sanctions against an array of criminal organizations and their leaders. Treasury’s actions were taken under an authority that targets transnational criminal organizations and their supporters. The designations announced Wednesday target the Camorra, the Yakuza, the Brothers’ Circle, and Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13. Editors Note: Some of these gangs are obviously tied to ORC and in some cases, like MS-13, are actively involved in ORC. (Source

A Moment in Time at the NRF LP Show

Bill Titus makes his key point in "The Profiling Debate" with Dr. Read Hayes

On the third day of the NRF LP Conference & Expo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Bill Titus, Managing Director at Price Waterhouse Coopers (pictured left), and Read Hayes, Director of the Loss Prevention Research Council and Research Scientist for the Univ. of Florida (pictured right), led a session titled "The PROFILING DEBATE - Who's Watching Whom and Why?" While some would say profiling is never appropriate, others feel it is a part of the experience factor and overall assessment when conducting surveillance. Mr. Titus and Dr. Hayes each represented a different approach to the discussion, while underscoring the reason why the "Profiling" debate persists today.

Consumers Blame Merchants For Data Breaches  With recent news of major security breaches involving retailers like Target and Sally Beauty populating media sites around the nation, merchants and issuers are likely wondering how this is affecting U.S. consumer behavior as a whole – and rethinking their own security strategies. Just how aware are consumers of these incidents, who are they putting at fault? Consumers, about 64 percent, indicated that they held merchants responsible for these breaches, while 28 percent said the banks and card networks were at fault. However, 67 percent said they expected their banks and card networks to notify them when these incidents occur. And when it comes to making up for the damage and making the situation right, 61 percent of consumers said that it was up to the banks and card networks. To view more statistics, check out the infographic titled “Consumer Insecurity About Data Insecurity” here. (Source

$10,000 worth of Canadian Motorcycle Company vests smash and grabbed from a Langley City store Thieves rammed a downtown Langley City store to steal 100 leather motorcycle vests in late June, Mounties say. Around June 22, the thief or thieves backed a vehicle into the front door of Up Your Leather. The ramming tactic created a large hole in the front of the business and damaged the structure, said Cpl. Holly Marks, of the Langley RCMP. The thieves swiped more than 100 CMC (Canadian Motorcycle Company) vests, in a number of styles and sizes. The vests are valued at approximately $100 each. (Source

Response to a Recent "Closing Thoughts" Posting on the Daily

"Tip of the Day" published June 23:  Providing a reference on an executive is a serious commitment and should never be taken or given lightly as references play a critical role in the decision process regarding major investments companies make when they hire a new executive. For example, when a company hires a $100,000 a year executive, they'll spend close to $200,000 on that executive in the first year alone merely to get the executive up and running. And if your recommendation isn't accurate, it could lead to problems not only for the company referencing the executive, but also for the executive themselves and that's the real concern. So when you're asked to give a reference, make sure you understand the position they're looking to fill and give an accurate assessment based on your experience and knowledge of that person and of the needs of that position. Because the last thing anyone wants is to have an executive fail in their new position if it could have been avoided.

People’s lives change ... How often have you heard that someone you knew was involved in something you could never have imagined that totally annihilated their reputation? Or suffered some major medical malady that completely changed what they were able to do in the field?

It happens more and more as we get older unfortunately and as we struggle to remain relevant.

It was the “Closing Thoughts” piece that got me thinking about my friend Curt and the two references I provided for him at his last two positions he held before his untimely passing. We'd worked together for more than 15 years and I knew him as well as anyone - I thought. Providing an employment recommendation was as much a reflection on me as it was on him.

On Sunday after church, Curt complained to his wife Stacy about another incredible migraine and asked that she get his medicine. As he washed down the pill, water dribbled uncharacteristically out of one side of his mouth and onto his shirt as he sat on the arm of the couch in their San Diego home. Stacy recognized what she thought were symptoms of stroke and after dialing 9-1-1 called a neighbor who was a paramedic. He assessed Curt in those anguishing minutes until they heard the ambulance siren. Thanks to his training, an anti-clotting drug was administered, but not before damage was done that took years to be recognized.

When Curt returned to work months later, after weeks of 24-hour-a-day hiccups, speech and physical therapy, friends rejoiced that "good old Curt” was back. But it was soon clear to co-workers, that it really wasn't the old Curt, but a guy who looked like Curt, acted like him to some degree, but struggled when faced with challenges and tasks that he previously digested and charged ahead. Curt hid what he could, but he knew himself that somehow, things were different. He told me once that when interviewing a dishonest employee, his brain was already 4 or 5 steps ahead of the employee with clear questions formulated in his head. Today, he confessed, if the employee quickly answered, a panicked Curt would think “Crap, what do I do now?” Soon, the company “cut back” and let Curt go with a modest severance and best wishes.

As his friend who only e-mailed and talked on the phone, I was pissed. How could they? And I resolved to do anything you would do for a friend - especially one that seemed to overcome such challenges - to get back in the saddle with another company. I was a reference for Curt (the old Curt as it turned out), with two companies eager to hire a tenured LP executive. But he struggled at both and after a year at a quick-serve chain and only a couple of weeks with another regional retailer where I'd been the glowing reference, he was out again for vague, seemingly unprovoked "business decisions."

It wasn’t long before Curt came to grips with the long-term repercussions of being a stroke victim and how life, logic, relationships and business performance can change as a result of this debilitating illness. I encouraged Curt to keep looking, do some consulting or file for SSI Disability, but he never did. And a year ago last March, he couldn’t imagine living up to his own high standards and decided to stop trying.

In part, I blame myself for not recognizing his precipitous path and for providing a five-star reference for a man I no longer really knew. I wanted to share this story - for what it’s worth - that reinforces your message but with a twist, as those in the tightly knit industry endure the process of change and the responsibility we have to our friends and colleagues.

Bibb Co, GA Deputies arrest 22 in RICO Identity Fraud Ring  Bibb County deputies received a fraud alert in May from Prevatek, one of the vendors for accounts inmates use to pay for phone calls, commissary goods and bonds. “They noticed that different account holders’ credit card information was being used to deposit money on inmates’ accounts,” investigator Jason Batchelor said. “It was all originating from the same (computer) IP address.” After several weeks of investigation, including listening to inmates’ recorded phone conversations and reviewing financial records, deputies have arrested 17 people in connection with a credit card fraud racket involving an estimated $20,000. Arrest warrants have been issued for another five people. Denise Krieger, 41, allegedly stole identities and credit card information from people across the country while working for Internet businesses such as 1-800-FLOWERS, running an unlicensed tax preparation business and reselling overstocked goods, according to the sheriff’s office.

Pasco, WA man arrested in suspected theft ring; stolen Levi’s heading TO Mexico  Authorities found more than $20,000 worth of stolen items and merchandise at the home of a Pasco man believed to be involved in a retail theft ring, according to Richland police. The search of Fernando M. Cano's home was the result of a two-month investigation into area retail thefts, Capt. Mike Cobb said. Cano, 49, was arrested following the search and booked into jail on suspicion of organized retail theft, trafficking stolen property and possession of a stolen firearm. Authorities found hand tools, lawn care tools, food stamp cards, stolen gift cards, a stolen gun and more than 130 pairs of stolen jeans in a shed on the Pasco property. There was also more than $40,000 in cash found at the house. When authorities from the Richland Street Crimes Unit and Metro Drug Task Force raided the house June 26, they also arrested Kaleb A.

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

Spending an entire day interviewing at a corporate office is an exhausting experience. All the preparation, homework, store visits, family discussions, and mental exercises take back seat and now its up to you to find your rhythm and your zone. Remember, everyone you meet, including the receptionist plays a part in developing their perception of you and its up to you to send the right messages and carry yourself like a professional. Much to often executives loosen up and start feeling comfortable and that's where the slips happen. You've got to focus and stay in the game every second you're in that office regardless of who you're with and where you are. Some real basics are; stay hydrated-drink plenty of water, do not chew gum or suck on any breath mints, use the facilities often even if its merely for a mental break, and always smile and be positive!

Just a Thought,
