Class Action Law Suit Filed Alleging Kmart Corp. Misclassification of Loss Prevention Managers in California  The class action lawsuit claims that Kmart failed to pay overtime wages to their Loss prevention Managers. The lawsuit, filed on July 17, 2014, alleges that Kmart Corporation misclassified their Loss Prevention Managers as exempt from overtime pay and as a result, failed to pay overtime wages, and failed to provide meal and rest breaks, as required by the California Labor Code. The Kmart Corporation complaint alleges that the Plaintiff, who worked as a Loss Prevention Manager, engaged in non-exempt tasks throughout his workday, including ensuring the proper operation and repairs of alarm equipment, detaining and processing shoplifters, and observing and reviewing store surveillance cameras among other things. The Complaint further claims that the Plaintiff and other Loss Prevention Managers are allegedly "managers in name only" as they do not direct the work of other employees and spend most of their day engaging in non-exempt job tasks. As such, the Complaint claims these employees have been misclassified under California law and seeks an unspecified amount of back overtime pay for the Plaintiff and the proposed class. The firm also represents a class of Loss Prevention Managers who worked for Fry's Electronics claiming alleged unpaid overtime wages. (Source prweb.com)

Rite Aid Beats Applicants' Background-Check Lawsuit  A Pennsylvania federal judge has tossed a class action filed over Rite Aid Corp.’s pre-employment background checks on the grounds that the plaintiffs failed to sufficiently state a claim, but gave the class 15 days to amend the complaint. U.S. District Judge Jan DuBois said that named plaintiff Kyra Moore failed to sufficiently allege that Rite Aid relied on an adverse background report provided by LexisNexis in making its decision not to hire her. Moore, who was not offered a job by the retail store after it received the report, alleged that Rite Aid violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act by using the reports without providing applicants with a copy or sufficient time to dispute it before taking adverse action.

NYC withdraws challenge to stop-and-frisk police lawsuits  New York City asked a court to dismiss its appeal in lawsuits over stop-and-frisk police tactics, moving closer to a resolution that Mayor Bill de Blasio promised in January would end such practices. If the appeals court in Manhattan grants Wednesday's request, the city will be a step closer to resolving more than a decade of court battles. (Source crainesnewyork.com)

Tyco Announces Resolution of U.S. Patent Infringement Litigation over Acousto-Magnetic EAS Labels  Settlement Agreement Prevents Ningbo Acousto-Magnetic EAS Labels From Entering the U.S. In December 2013, the complaint was filed jointly by Tyco Fire & Security GmbH and its Sensormatic Electronics, LLC and Tyco Integrated Security, LLC (herein together Tyco) businesses against Ningbo in both the International Trade Commission (ITC) and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to prohibit the importation into the United States of certain Ningbo acousto-magnetic (AM) electronic article surveillance systems (EAS) labels. The complaint was aimed at promoting the U.S. public interest by protecting Tyco's intellectual property rights and the associated domestic industry. Furthermore, the complaint was intended to help protect the value of its leading Sensormatic brand, since infringing products may not perform to the quality standards of authentic Sensormatic AM labels. Under a settlement agreement resolving both the ITC and District Court actions, the parties have agreed that Ningbo will withdraw from the United States certain EAS label models that use these patents, and make an unspecified payment to Tyco.

Possible Protracted IRS Fight & Consumer Backlash Keeps Walgreens in U.S.  Here’s Mr. Wasson’s three key risks to a Walgreen inversion: "a protracted battled with the IRS, possibly including litigation which could go on for 3 to 10 years and which significantly complicates and impedes everyday tax and business planning.” “possible dual taxation during intervening years and payment of back taxes with interest and significant penalties.” “the potential consumer backlash and political ramifications, including the risk of losing a book of business.” Mr. Wasson said that Walgreen’s board wanted to have a “significant level of confidence” about the “sustainability of the tax inversion position,” but they don’t have that. They weren’t sure whether they could “withstand the intense, protracted IRS scrutiny.” (Source wsj.com)

Has California's plastic-bag ban backfired? New LP challenges arise. 
Several large cities in California, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, have banned the use of plastic bags in grocery stores, and the legislature there is considering a ban for the entire state. However, the effort to go green is costing some stores quite a bit of green. "It is increasing shoplifting," said Mark Arabo, president and CEO of the Neighborhood Market Association, a group of 2,400 small markets in the West. "We've received hundreds of phone calls from our members saying that once these plastic bag bans have been enacted, shoplifting has increased in our markets." The Los Angeles Daily News reports the manager of one Rite Aid claims his weekly theft rate has at least doubled to almost $1,000, blaming the lack of plastic bags. "Unless employees physically see someone putting something in their bag and then not paying for it, they are not allowed to search them or confront them." (Source cnbc.com)

Q&A on the Reported Theft of 1.2 Billion Email Accounts by Russian Hackers  Yesterday, it was reported that a Russian crime ring amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet credentials, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses. Security reporter Brian Krebs puts some perspective on the massive e-heist. Q: What would a crime network even do with a billion credentials? A: "Spam, spam and ... oh, spam. Junk email is primarily sent in bulk using large botnets - collections of hacked PCs. A core component of the malware that powers these crime machines is the theft of passwords that users store on their computers and the interception of credentials submitted by victims in the process of browsing the Web. It is quite common for major spammers to rely on lists of billions of email addresses for distributing their malware and whatever junk products they are getting paid to promote."

Global Survey: Snowden Affair & POS Data Breaches Seriously Harmed Corporate Security  
68 percent of businesses stated that the NSA breach by Edward Snowden and the number of retail/point of sale (PoS) system breaches in the past year carried the most harmful impact in terms of changing security strategies to protect against the latest threats. The findings are part of CyberArk’s 8th Annual Global Advanced Threat Landscape survey. While the NSA breach is widely regarded as the prototypical insider-based attack, and the retail/PoS breaches are regarded similarly for outside attacks, the critical link between both attacks was the compromise and exploitation of privileged credentials.

The 'How can I help you?' Index - How to know right away how well a store is managed  In a recent interview with Convenience Store Decisions, Robert Moraca, VP of LP for the NRF and longtime security director for Sunoco, talked about the staples of good loss prevention, which includes solid store management. “When you walk into a store and they greet you - we might call that the ‘How can I help you’ index - you’ll know right away how the store is managed,” Moraca said. Other tell-tale signs include cleanliness, well-stocked shelves and whether the store is operating efficiently. If not, the retailer probably doesn’t have a good handle on shrink issues either, Moraca explained. (Source csdecisions.com)

Retailers scramble to adapt supply chain strategies as growth shifts to e-commerce
There is an upheaval going on in many retail organizations as they see more of their growth coming from the web and less from bricks-and-mortar stores. The urgency to adapt to this change comes through clearly in a study of more than 500 leading North American retailers by Boston Retail Partners, a retail consulting firm. The study found that 93% of respondents are working toward unifying their operations so that they can serve customers in a consistent way whether they shop in physical stores, on web sites or via mobile devices. 74% say their organizations have or plan to change the metrics they use to measure their effectiveness in supporting unified cross-channel commerce. The report says traditional supply chain metrics, such as freight cost as a percentage of sales and warehouse processing time, fail to take into account new goals, such as a store being able to fill an online order or accept the return of an item purchased via the web.

Baltimore man pleads guilty in $200,000 ID theft ring that hit Giant, Rite Aid and Nordstrom  Olanrewaju Abiola and his co-conspirators purchased stolen credit card data, typically on the internet, and then loaded it onto gift cards and other payment cards, according to a Tuesday release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. The group used the cards, along with counterfeit driver's licenses, to make purchases from various locations in the Baltimore-Washington area, including Giant, Rite-Aid and Nordstrom. They then returned the purchases in order to get cash. The scheme resulted in at least $200,000 in actual and intended losses, and involved more than 250 victims, according to the release.

Neighboring Business Caught Up as 'Collateral Damage' of FBI Sting  After an eight month investigation, local, state and federal authorities took down an alleged million dollar retail theft ring on Tuesday. The raid temporarily shut down one Tri-State business despite it not being involved in any way, federal authorities said. The owner said he's merely a victim of proximity and is now collateral damage. On Tuesday, armed with search warrants, federal agents raided the Deal Makers locations in Newburgh and Henderson. The warrants were in connection with an investigation into a retail theft ring allegedly masterminded by Kyle Hudson and Michael Rupert, the manager and operator of Deal Makers. Rupert is charged with Conspiracy to Commit Interstate Transportation of Stolen Goods and Interstate Transportation of Stolen Goods. Hudson has been charged with Conspiracy to Commit Interstate Transportation of Stolen Goods. The two would have other people steal goods from local stores and then sell those goods on Ebay, prosecutors said. Some of the stolen items included high-end vacuum cleaners, televisions, power tools and designer purses. (Source tristatehomepage.com)

Analog to IP: Discover the Truth about Video Migration


By: Scott Hendrickson
Video Product Manager
Checkview Corporation


Truth #1: It is Cost Effective.
In today’s world of technology, balancing the performance of a video system with budget constraints has been a challenge that has kept many systems in the analog realm. The lower cost and performance of analog video may allow Loss Prevention Managers to put more cameras in more stores, but with the declining costs associated with current IP cameras, higher resolutions and system flexibility with open architected network video recorders, the case to move from analog to IP is a strong one. While some retailers can make the jump to IP with complete replacements of existing video infrastructure, most find that a migration path from analog to IP is done in stages and proper planning for the future. Consider the following key components regarding your present video system and make the move towards an IP video system.

Truth #2: Cabling is Key.
The first item to consider is the current cabling infrastructure. Coaxial cable with a power wire? Structured cabling, Category 3, 5, 5e, 6 or other? If you are still installing analog video systems with coaxial cable, then at the very minimum, you need to move into Ethernet standard Category 5e or 6 (Unshielded Twisted Pair – UTP) using baluns to transmit analog video, power and data (for PTZ’s) as soon as possible. Baluns are small transceivers that live at each end of a UTP run to convert the analog signal and transmit over Cat5e/6. Different baluns are used for varying run lengths, but it is important to know for future IP considerations that Ethernet standards have a maximum run distance of 100M (328’) between IP devices (switch, PC, IP Camera). If you are installing analog today with baluns, to be ready for IP in the future, the Cat5e/6 cabling must adhere to TIA Ethernet standards of 100M or less, or include proper intermediate junctions and proper Ethernet terminations.

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

Seems like the longer a process goes, the harder it is for everyone to stay focused on the initial purpose and maintain the enthusiasm as when it began. Time and difficulty have their impact, but maintaining the passion and enthusiasm is up to each person. With the last step seemingly the easiest, it is usually the most critical step of all and many tend to approach it as if it is a mere formality when, in reality, that last step can be the biggest and, if you do not watch out, it could be a step right off the cliff.
