Stephen O'Keefe will be awarded the Lifetime
Achievement Award at this year's RCC Loss Prevention Conference
Stephen O'Keefe is an external consultant on contract with Retail Council of
Canada who advises on the many aspects of loss prevention affecting shrinkage
and profitability for retailers. He has 30 years of experience working directly
with some of the largest retailers in Canada such as Sears, Hudson's Bay and,
for the last 15 years, he was as Vice President of Loss Prevention and Risk
Management with Walmart Canada. At Walmart, Stephen was also a key member of the
Global team dealing with Mergers and Acquisitions which exposed him to many
different countries and different Loss Prevention programs and philosophies.
Stephen advises Loss Prevention professionals in the areas of refund fraud,
organized crime, restorative justice and various legislative issues. Most
recently he helped retailers deal with a very restrictive law dealing with
Privacy. For a number of years, organizations were not allowed to share details
related to criminal activity. With his help, in June 2015, a law was passed
allowing for the sharing of information under specific guidelines now outlined
in PIPEDA (Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act).
With Stephen's experience and current network of professionals, he can easily
explain complex legislation and best practices information to retailers who may
not have the infrastructure to create their own program from the ground up.

Is Walmart passing its

this week, Bloomberg published an
article that referenced the Wal-Mart in Tulsa, OK. That article indulged
in two of modern journalism's favorite pastimes:
1) Sensationalizing a
local issue to whip up populist anger, and
2) Beating up on Wal-Mart
Don't believe me? When was the last article you read that cast anything
relating to Wal-Mart in a positive light?
The article highlights the
high number of call volumes at some Wal-Mart supercenters due to shoplifting
and other crimes. What is lacking is any context.
mentioned in the article is the farthest north big box store in Tulsa. The
next closest are about 2 miles further south. It is an island of retail in a
sea of blight. North Tulsa has no retail to speak of, other than dollar
stores (which are getting stolen from so often that they hired off-duty
Tulsa Police). The police presence hasn't really curtailed the theft - as
much as it has moved it to the stores that aren't covered by officers. Every
grocery store that has opened for the last 10 years within 4 miles of there
has closed because of unsustainable theft.

Target, other retailers

Target said Friday it will donate $400,000 to assist Baton Rouge and the
surrounding communities affected. Target reached out to local food banks to
donate more than $100,000 of food, and is partnering with local non-profits
throughout the area to distribute $20,000 in Target gift cards for necessary

such as Amazon, eBay and Newegg are so good at what they do that there are
1.2 million fewer people working in the retail industry now than would be
the case if online stores didn’t exist, an analysis suggests.
Morgan analyst Michael Feroli says online sellers are so much more
productive at selling goods than brick-and-mortar stores that there’s less
need for workers. Sales revenue per online employee is more than
four times as high as what a traditional retail worker generates:
$1,267,000 vs. $279,000.
That’s not to say online shopping has
destroyed 1.2 million jobs, Feroli notes. It just means that the shift
toward internet sales has boosted productivity to the point that companies
can get by with fewer employees. Productivity among online sellers surged 6%
in 2015, according to government data. Overall U.S. productivity rose a
tepid 0.8% last year.
Some of those productivity gains have flowed to
some employees at online sites. Hourly pay of online retail
employees averaged $27.14 in June, well above the retail industry average of
$17.92. Internet stores pay some of the highest wages in the retail
In 2016, the percentage of Americans who work in retail
slipped to 11% from 11.6% in 2000. It hasn’t been that low since 1975,
Bureau of Labor Statistics data show.
Where have all the people who might have worked in retail gone? Some
might not be working at all — the percentage of Americans in the workforce
is near a four-decade low — but others may have ended up in different parts
of the economy.
One obvious alternative is warehouses and shipping.
Yet employment in that sector is only 335,000 higher compared to its
prerecession peak. marketwatch.com

Asset Protection Specialist Marcia Foertsch in the
Appalachian Zone led the charge by quickly investigating the

including Franchisees and store managers in the area where the

"Arrests like this are possible
because of the great cooperative relationship we have with our
stores," Foertsch said. "Law enforcement partnerships again proved
invaluable, and we were able to quickly share the evidence from the
incidents at our locations to help establish the scope of these

jobs better and, as a result, better protect the communities we both
The SSC AP Investigations team also played a pivotal role.
“Based on the quick reporting from the stores, our team was able to
confirm that the same individuals were responsible for each of the
burglaries,” said Corporate Investigations Supervisor Lauren Freede.
“Surveillance video was retained at the SSC and then provided to law
enforcement, which proved to be crucial in identifying the
individuals and ultimately leading to an arrest.”

charges are pending.
Eddie Bauer hacked - All North American
Clothing store chain Eddie Bauer said today it has detected and
removed malicious software from point-of-sale systems at all of its 350+ stores
in North America, and that credit and debit cards used at those stores during
the first six months of 2016 may have been compromised in the breach. The
acknowledgement comes nearly six weeks after KrebsOnSecurity first notified the
clothier about a possible intrusion at stores nationwide.
Eddie Bauer —
working with the FBI and an outside computer forensics firm — had detected and
removed card-stealing malware from cash registers at all of its locations in the
United States and Canada.
The retailer says it believes the malware was
capable of capturing credit and debit card numbers from customer transactions
made at all 350 Eddie Bauer stores in the United States and Canada between
January 2, 2016 to July 17, 2016. The company emphasized that this breach did
not impact purchases made at the company’s online store eddiebauer.com.
In the Bitcoin Era,
Ransomware Attacks Surge
Digital currency, better software help hackers hold
Ransomware dates to the late 1980s, but
attacks spiked this year
amid the growing use of bitcoin and improved encryption software.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice,
ransomware attacks have quadrupled this year
from a year ago, averaging 4,000 a day, most of which go unreported. Typical
ransomware payments range from $500 to $1,000, according to cyberrisk data firm
Cyence Inc., but some hackers have demanded as much as $30,000. Hollywood
Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles paid roughly $17,000 to unlock files
in February, following
an attack that crippled a large portion of the
hospital’s computer systems.
Including other costs, such as lost productivity and staff time to recover
files, the Justice Department said ransomware attacks cost victims $209 million
in the first three months of the year, an average of about $333,000 per
incident, based on complaints that it has received. That is up from a total of
$24 million for all of 2015, or about $10,000 per infection, the Justice
Another factor is the
increasing use and stability of bitcoin,
the digital currency. Bitcoin is now the preferred payment method of most
ransomware infections because it allows users to send and receive money from
anywhere in the world, often anonymously.
One university chief security
officer said he purchased two bitcoin “mining” machines, which generate bitcoin
on their own by performing the complex calculations that allow the bitcoin
financial network to operate. Since January, he has been using these systems to
stockpile bitcoin, just in case he needs to quickly recover a critical computer.

Say Hello To The New
Kids On The Fraudster Block
In the new
Fraudster Profile Podcast Series, Karen Webster is joined by Gilit Saporta,
who helps us to identify and break down the characteristics and personas
within the diverse and ever-growing group of cybercriminals. The latest
installment focuses on a very surprising segment: teen fraudsters.
“With teenagers, we don’t believe that these guys are thinking of themselves
as fraudsters to begin with,” Saporta explained. Many teenagers today own
smartphones and have an internet connection, so they essentially have the
world in the palm of their hands. With this type of access, they can
quickly and easily take up what they think to be a “cool pastime,” such as
using stolen credit card credentials to make purchases from their favorite
game or seeing how many pizzas they can order before anyone notices.
Though the threat posed by teen fraudsters places them on the lower end
of the cybercriminal totem pole, the abundance of resources and support from
the organized cyber ecosystem can still make them a problem for merchants.
But the riskiest aspect of teen fraudsters is the fact that their activities
can be very difficult to detect.
The first step for analysts to
differentiate between the legit behavior and the fraudulent behavior of
teens is to try to walk a mile in the fraudster’s shoes and to really
picture themselves as that teenager looking to commit fraud, intentionally
or unintentionally. Saporta said that while seeing fraud committed at the
teenage level is not a new phenomenon, it is one that continues to evolve
and grow. Over the last five years in particular, she’s noted that teens are
moving from simply using family members as a source for stolen credit cards
to going online to find stolen credentials. It’s no wonder
this trend has emerged, especially with the onslaught of data breaches in
recent years that have made compromised payment data more accessible than
Schooling parents in the
art of safe online shopping
As parents prepare
for the inevitable back-to-school rush, there is a flurry of shopping and
bargain hunting for everything from the traditional pens, paper and
backpacks, to larger, more expensive items, such as tablets and laptops.
And, as many parents take to the Internet in search of bargains to
appease budgets, the risk of being exposed to online fraud and counterfeit
Here are a few top tips for savvy shoppers to
consider when searching for bargains online.
Counterfeiters are wising up and realising that sometimes it can be more
convincing the less the item is reduced. Search around for the recommended
retail price (RRP) and even if the item only has a small discount, such as
20%, it is worth checking other elements of the website to see if they stack
The site itself: Although some websites look
professional at first glance, counterfeiters aren’t always so careful about
the ‘About’ or ‘FAQ’ page. Check these sections and make sure you look at
the delivery details and note where the company is based, does it match up
with the company’s details?
Secure payment: Any
time you are asked for login details, or encouraged to enter your credit
card details, the page should be protected by a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
Return and privacy policies: A bona
fide seller should provide an option of how to cancel orders and where to
return goods. Counterfeiters won’t usually invest the time to craft a clear,
Check the web address: Impersonation of a brand’s
website and what is referred to as ‘cybersquatting’ are on the rise. When
doing an initial search for the brand name, check the link and look out for
spelling mistakes on both the website and the URL address. If the address
begins with https://, the ‘s’ tells you it’s a secure site.
Online marketplaces: Even if the marketplace itself is a brand you
know, check reviews of the seller or try find any forum chats and speak to
other retailers before placing that order.

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

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.
