Fraud up 22% in UK first half of 2015
Fraud Barometer, which measures fraud cases with losses of $156500 U.S. or more
reaching the UK courts, has found that the value of fraud rose by 22% in the
first half of this year to $605.7m U.S. ($496.2m U.S. in the same period last
year).* With 160 cases, fraud volumes remained virtually identical to the first
half of 2014, meaning that the average value of fraud has increased from
$3.1m U.S. to $3.75m U.S., a 21% increase.
The data shows a very marked increase in "middle man" fraud, up over 242% to 99m
pounds, as criminals insert themselves into the supply chain. However, it is
those in positions of responsibility and management who have driven the growth
in fraud, accounting for over 68% of fraud by value in the first half of 2015,
compared to only 22% in 2014. The barometer also reveals an explosion of cases
in which individuals, betraying the trust of those closest to them, targeted
their own relatives. Fraud on families by one of their own grew by 384% compared
to the same period last year. Elderly relatives were some of the main victims,
and had 1.7m pounds stolen from them by younger members of the family.

Eleven percent of Apple's U.S. retail workers are African American - First Time
Ever Report - 'Inclusion Inspires Innovation' - What's Your Company's Diversity
Report? And more importantly What's Your Department's Diversity Report?
Up to now, a major question about Apple's workforce demographics has been how
does the diversity of the main company compare to workers in its retail stores.
Today Apple answered that question in its diversity report - 'Inclusion inspires
innovation'. For the first time, Apple broke out retail workers and retail
● 30 percent of Apple's retail workers and 32 percent of its retail leadership
globally are female.
● In the U.S., 11 percent of its retail workers are African American, 15 percent
are Hispanic, seven percent are Asian and 56 percent are white
● As for its retail leadership in the U.S., 69 percent are white, nine percent
are Hispanic and five percent are Asian and African American.
Also for the first time, Apple disclosed its EEO-1, a government report on the
demographic breakdown of its U.S.-based workforce. From counting just those in
the "sales" category (which may not exactly match with retail staff and likely
includes corporate sales - Apple says in its diversity report that it doesn't
think the EEO-1 best reflects its organization):
● 12 percent - or 2,280 - of its 19,210 sales employees are African American
● 47 percent of all of Apple's 4,809 African-American workers are in sales
● 33 percent of Apple's 17,165 female workers in the U.S. are in sales.
Overall, Apple reported that 69 percent of its global workforce is male,
compared to 70 percent last year. In the U.S., its workforce is 54 percent
white, 18 percent Asian, 11 percent Hispanic and eight percent black.

retail workers and 5% of their retail leadership
● Latinos make up almost one in 10 (9.7%) manager-level or higher staff within
retail LP teams.
● Apple reported that in the U.S., Latinos make up 15% of their retail
workers and 9% of their retail leadership
● Fewer Asian-Pacific individuals currently staff manager-level or higher
positions within LP among retailers surveyed (average of 2.6%).
● Apple reported that in the U.S., Asian-Pacific individuals make up 7% of
their retail workers and 5% of their retail leadership

The biggest booths at ASIS 2015 - Protection 1 to 'make a splash' again
Protection 1 is increasing the size of its booth at ASIS, from 800-square-feet
in 2014 to 3,000-square-feet this year. "This year we're going back to a large
booth," Lisa Ciappetta, senior director marketing & technology at Protection 1,
told Security Systems News. Protection 1 had a large booth in the past, when it
was trying to "make a splash" and get brand recognition, Ciapetta said, but the
company "took a step back" in 2013. "What we decided to do for the next couple
of years [after 2013] was scale down the booth size, but what we did in tandem
was create a [separate, branded] meeting space," she said. At this year's show,
the booth is growing to incorporate that meeting space.

Stores Suffer From a Shift of Behavior in Buyers
Millennials - the 20- and 30-something consumers whom marketers covet - would
rather spend their hard-won cash on out-of-town vacations, meals with friends,
gym memberships and, of course, their smartphones, many surveys suggest. Even
back-to-school sales are failing to spur a summer shopping frenzy, though
consumers may have delayed their spending this year after a number of states
pushed back their three-day sales tax holidays from July into August.
The shift in consumer mind-sets, especially among younger consumers, is hurting
major department store chains like Macy's and Kohl's. But even upscale retailers
are facing some trouble. Foreign tourists are spending less in the United
States, their purchasing power crimped by the strong dollar. China's recent
devaluation of its currency is likely to reduce spending by Chinese tourists,
who have become big spenders, especially in major cities like New York or Los
"Where the consumer is spending," Mr. Lundgren said, "is in automobiles. It's in
housing. It's in health care. It's in certain apps that they're downloading." Of
course, Americans have not stopped spending on goods - far from it. But when
they do, they are increasingly buying online. nytimes.com
Family Dollar fined over blocked exits by OSHA - $72,000 Family Dollar
Stores of Connecticut has been fined over blocked exit routes at one of its

Penn Station President Looks Back at Lessons Learned from Their 2012 Data Breach
- One of the First Retailers Hit "I wish I would have known how
sophisticated and how ramped these attacks are," Dunaway says. "Looking back, I
wish we had spent a lot more time educating our franchisees about the severity
of all of this. ... Once they understood the ramifications, they changed what
they were doing as well and how they viewed cybersecurity." At the time of Penn
Station's breach, Dunaway was forthcoming with the media, Penn Station's
customers and Penn Station's franchisees about the incident (see Learning From a
"Early on with our attorneys, I had some really strong debates about what we
would and would not share about the attack," he says. "But after 26 years in
business, Penn Station had a really good reputation, and I wasn't going to let a
criminal element take charge of that and ruin it." "We now work with a
third-party organization for our point-of-sale security," he says. "They monitor
our activity, and that's what they do for a living."

What is the Real World Smart Store?
Michael T. Grady
Executive Vice President
Through online shopping, retailers can analyze how
customers shop and customize their site and the overall shopping experience to
meet the demands of their customer. The real world smart store is no different.
Using IP video surveillance and analytics on a secure network, retailers can
glean a wealth of consumer behavior intelligence that can be used to improve the
overall customer experience, optimize store layout and mapping, and drive
business decisions that can improve the bottom line.
That customer behavior intelligence includes valuable information such as
footfall, repeat versus new customers, and average number and duration of
visits. Meanwhile, applications that were traditionally used for loss
prevention, like video and POS data, can reveal insights to customer traffic,
purchase habits, staffing, employee training issues, and conversion ratios.
Cameras can also track patterns like how customers move through the store, where
they tend to linger and how long they stay. These insights help retailers make
more targeted marketing, merchandising, loss prevention and overall business
decisions that support the company's objectives.

Cargo theft crackdown urged in Atlantic Canada
Cargo theft in New Brunswick is resulting in businesses losing "tens of
millions" of dollars annually and holds the potential to force companies out of
business, says the executive director of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking
Association. Cargo theft is costing the Canadian economy "billions of dollars"
annually, says the Insurance Bureau of Canada. (Nampa PD/The Associated Press.
The trucking association, the RCMP and the Insurance Bureau of Canada launched a
new reporting program for cargo theft in Atlantic Canada on Wednesday. The
reporting program hopes to raise awareness about the crime and bring together
stakeholders to crack down on it. A similar reporting database in Ontario last
year helped lead to the recovery of $1.4 million in stolen goods.

Tallahassee, FL: Massive Shoplifting Ring busted, targeted nearly 100 Grocery
Stores A massive shoplifting ring targeting North and Central Florida
grocery stores has been busted. Attorney General Pam Bondi and Marion County
Sheriff Chris Blair announced the arrests of five suspects Thursday. According
to arrest warrants, the suspects stole more than $50,000 worth of beauty, dental
care, medical and other products from Publix and Winn-Dixie stores and then sold
the items on eBay. "This unsophisticated, yet massive effort to sell stolen
goods online has produced strong evidence for my statewide prosecutors to bring
charges against these individuals in connection with shoplifting products from
nearly 100 Florida grocery stores," said Bondi. Each time, between $100 to
$1,400 worth of products was allegedly stolen including whitening dental strips,
electronic toothbrushes, shaving razors, allergy medicines, batteries and more.

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security
Loyalty is one of the most precious values there is and a loyal
team that's unified in its goals and objectives, even in defeat, is strong and
supportive. Loyal teams can make the largest tasks seem effortless and they
create a sense of ownership of family that inspires individual performance and
comforts individual failure. Earned slowly and grown daily, loyalty is a
commodity no leader can be without because it fuels success, unifies purpose,
and gives birth to exceptional performance. Without loyalty, teams splinter and
lose focus on the true objectives. It's rare to build a truly loyal team and
it's incredibly difficult to keep them together long term with private agendas
always pressuring the balance. And yes, even loyal teams require balancing
because at the end of the day it's always about personal agendas. Professional
sports teams are constantly looking for that balance and the right players to
fit as a team and the same holds true in business. With the right team, anything
is possible and conversely one team member can destroy the entire balance. So
being a team player is important even when you decide not to be.
