Retailers' EMV Dilemma - Online fraud to surge 90% over next 3 years, reaching
$19B in 2018 The new rule, or "liability shift," will take effect on
Oct. 1. It's meant to encourage retailers and banks to adopt securer payment
technology: EMV chip-enabled credit cards and card readers, which render
criminally crafted cards-ones that use stolen magnetic strip data-ineffective.
If banks issue the securer cards, then they're no longer responsible for
counterfeit fraud. If retailers install the new card-reading systems, then the
liability shifts back to the banks. The problem is that
the upgrades are expensive (the cards and card readers will cost a collective
$6.8 billion, according to Javelin
Strategy and Research). And they won't solve everyone's woes-especially the
But there's an even pricier problem looming: The counterfeit fraud prevented by
chips in stores is all but guaranteed to shift online.
Javelin estimates that "card-not-present" fraud will explode from $10 billion
last year to $19 billion in 2018, when the
equipment upgrade should effectively be completed.
That's a 90% surge. And merchants will, as
always, have to cover the costs of digital scams.
So, the dilemma: If a retailer shells out for new gear, the investment will do
nothing to stave off fraud growing quickly online. On the other hand, if the
retailer skips the upgrade, then it could become the weakest link in the
fraudster food chain, effectively painting a bull's-eye on its back.
Neither option is appealing for stores. "Merchants are at the short end of the
stick," says Gartner analyst Avivah Litan.
Fraud rate doubles as cybercriminals create new accounts in users' name
To get more value out of stolen personal information, cybercriminals doubled
their rate of account creation fraud this summer, according to a report report
from NuData Security. Between May and July, 57 percent of the 500 million
account creations analyzed were high risk or fraudulent -- up from 28 percent in
February, March and April.
Mexico remains one of the world's most at-risk countries for cargo theft
Mexico remains one of the world's most at-risk countries for cargo theft. Cargo
safety is affected by roadblocks set up by organized crime groups or protesters
such as teachers from the Coordinadora Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación
(CNTE [National Confederation of Education Workers]), among others. Mexican
cargo is intercepted by criminals when drivers stop to repair a tire, or at gas
stations, cachimbas (informal truck stops) and huachicoleras (clandestine gas
stations selling stolen gas). Most cargo theft incidents identified by
FreightWatch International throughout Mexico provide only partial information on
the type of merchandise that was being transported at the time of the theft.
the percentage of unknown merchandise is high, amounting to 40% of all incidents.
FreightWatch International recommends that drivers stay alert throughout the
trip, especially in high-risk areas and areas without reception. The drivers
must inform their monitoring office of all risk situations that arise along the
route, such as suspicious individuals and vehicles.
Tyco opens customer experience center for Walmart with simulated store
environment How important is Walmart to Tyco Retail Solutions Inc.?
Important enough that Tyco has built a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to
the giant retailer. Located in Bentonville, Arkansas, the Walmart Retail
Experience Center features a simulated retail environment and showroom where the
retailer's executives from around the globe will have access to resources and
capabilities aligned to Walmart's growing global footprint. It is Tyco's first

operates a proprietary innovation center known as @WalmartLabs in San Bruno,
Curbside pickup gets even more hands-free
Store pickup at Target, Best Buy and other major retailers is getting a boost
from a whole new innovation from tech startup Curbside. The company, which has
partnered with these retailers to provide a curbside pickup app for its
customers, has unveiled its first ever Curbside Pickup Pod at the Glendale
Galleria mall in Southern California. With Curbside, consumers can now shop from
stores within the Galleria right from the Curbside app on their mobile phone and
then swing by to pick up all of their orders from one central pickup spot - the
Curbside Pickup Pod - right as they pull up to the curb.
Target to pay $2.8 million for discriminatory hiring tests
The retail giant's former employment tests discriminated on the basis of race
and sex and violated the Americans With Disabilities Act. Some of the tests that
Target once used to assess job applicants were big no-nos, according to the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The agency announced on Monday that the
retail giant would pay $2.8 million to resolve a charge related to the
discriminatory practices, which Target used nationwide and the EEOC first
discovered in 2006, according to Julie Schmid, acting director of the EEOC's
office in Minneapolis.
AutoZone Accused Of Harassment, Wage Docking In Calif. Suit
AutoZone Inc. was hit with a putative class action on Friday in California state
court by a group of employees claiming the company's stores regularly shorted
wages and benefits, failed to keep accurate records and allowed harassment in
the workplace, including derogatory comments on race, gender and marital status.
D. Price, the lead plaintiff of the proposed class of employees from the past
four years, claims the national auto parts retailer did not pay wages on time or
in full upon termination of a worker or for interrupted breaks and meal periods
and that the company failed to provide regular pay stubs with a required income
and withholding breakdown. Moreover,
Price said that he was subjected to "severe and pervasive harassment" working at
an AutoZone in Los Angeles as an African-American married to a Latina woman.
Repeated complaints by Price of his treatment were allegedly not investigated by
AutoZone, and he claims the company "had full knowledge of the hostile work
environment," and the acts of harassment and discrimination "were done with
malice, fraud and/or oppression and in reckless disregard of plaintiff's rights
under California law."
Ex-Wawa Worker Says She Was Bullied For Being Gay

fired her when she complained.
Staples' plan to take over Office Depot draws FTC scrutiny
U.S. antitrust officials examining Staples Inc.'s planned takeover of Office
Depot Inc. are zeroing in on the sale of office supplies to large corporate
customers, said sources familiar with the matter. The Federal Trade Commission,
which sees numerous options for retail consumers, is scrutinizing whether the
merger will harm competition for corporate clients as the review enters the
final stages, said the sources, who asked not to be named because they weren't
authorized to speak publicly.
American Apparel Worker Unrest Bubbles Over
Frustration and anger with American Apparel management among a large contingent
of former and current factory workers gained steam last week via rallies and new
A gathering, organized by the General Brotherhood of Workers of American Apparel
union, brought a life-sized piñata of chief executive officer Paula Schneider to
outside American Apparel headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. It was a symbolic
move decrying what workers allege to be mismanagement of the troubled company by
New York hedge fund Standard General and the current executive team, led by
The group followed up that demonstration on Friday with a rally outside of
American Apparel's Melrose Avenue store and is expected to gather once again
this Saturday outside of the Hollywood and Highland shopping center location.
Workers had rallied around former ceo and founder Dov Charney when he was
officially fired late last year and replaced with Schneider, who was charged
with turning around the ailing company. However, the business has continued to
struggle, leading to chatter of a possible bankruptcy.
Dov Charney's 'legal drama' is now an off-Broadway play
And you thought there was already plenty of drama surrounding American Apparel
and its ousted CEO Dov Charney. Just wait until Oct. 8. That's when "Unseamly,"
a 5-year-old play about a young woman seeking legal advice about a sexual
harassment case against her former clothing-company boss, debuts off-Broadway.
The play, a thinly veiled take on Charney's tenure at the embattled apparel
company, even has an actor in a lead role who looks a little like Charney. The
play, which first ran in Montreal, was written by Oren Safdie, Charney's Los
Angeles-based first cousin.
Starbucks CEO asks employees to mind customer stock stress
In the aftermath of the Ferguson riots, Starbucks Corp. asked store employees
and managers to be extra sensitive to customers who may be feeling emotional
about racial issues. Now Starbucks is asking workers in stores to show financial

email to employees and managers in stores asking them to recognize and respond
to customers who are experiencing stress and anxiety resulting from the recent
global stock market crash.

Warning signs an employee plans to leave with your company's data - Half of
employees are taking data with them when they leave A global high-tech
manufacturer had reached its boiling point after several of its sales reps left
the company unexpectedly and took with them sales leads and other data to their
new employers. The company needed to stop the thefts before they happened. So
the company hired several security analysts who manually looked at the behavior
patterns for all sales reps working on its cloud-based CRM system, and then
matched them with the behaviors of those who ultimately quit their jobs. What
they were able to correlate was startling. Sales reps that had shown a spike in
abnormal system activity between weeks nine and 12 of a financial quarter
generally quit at the end of week 13 - in many cases because they knew they
weren't going to meet their sales quotas.
These abnormal behaviors included one or all of these warning signs -- doing
mass exports of lead information, entering parts of the system where they don't
usually go, changing object information, deleting items, and doing any of these
things from home or in the office on a Saturday afternoon. With these early
warning indicators, IT staff was able to put controls in place to stop massive
downloads before they happened or freeze accounts for several hours until a
manager had a chance to speak with the employee.
Employees are taking valuable company data with them that is stored in the cloud
in CRM systems like Salesforce, collaboration tools such as Microsoft Office 365
or storage sites like Box and Dropbox. "It's just so easy to access, download
and transfer data these days - in fact, the company doesn't even know it's
happening," says Eric Chiu president of cloud security automation firm HyTrust.
"On the flipside, it's difficult to track" all the data that is out there and
secure data against an authenticated user, he adds. Half of all employees who
left their posts in 2013 took company data with them, and 40 percent planned to
use that data in their new job, according to a study by Symantec and the
Court: FTC can bring down the hammer on companies with sloppy cybersecurity
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has the authority to take action against
companies that fail to protect customer data, an appeals court ruled Monday. The
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld the FTC's 2012 lawsuit
against hotel and time-share operator Wyndham Worldwide. The FTC filed a
complaint against Wyndham for three data breaches in 2008 and 2009 that led to
more than US $10.6 million in fraudulent charges. The appeals court ruling,
upholding a 2014 district court decision, suggests the FTC can hold companies
responsible for failing to use reasonable security practices. The company's
hotels stored payment card information in clear, readable text, and it used
easily guessed passwords to access its property management systems, the FTC
alleged. The company also failed to use "readily available security measures"
such as firewalls to limit access between the company's property management
systems, its corporate network and the Internet, the FTC charged.
Most Apple devices lack proper security for the enterprise
Apple's Macs, iPhones and iPads are common in the modern workplace, but
relatively few of these devices comply with standard security requirements,
according to a new survey. Nearly half of all U.S. employees use at least one
Apple device at work, but most of those gadgets lack common security protocols
required by many enterprises, according to a new survey commissioned by Centrify,
a company that sells enterprise security and management software for Apple
products. The survey found that 45 percent of respondents use at least one Apple
device for work, to access corporate email, documents and business applications.
Of those gadgets, 63 percent were employee-owned. More than half, or 51 percent,
of all the users' Apple devices were secured by single-word passwords or
numerical PINs, and 58 percent of those devices had no software or policies to
enforce the use of stronger passwords. The survey also found that 56 percent of
Apple device users shared their passwords with others, and only 17 percent had
company-supplied password managers.
Beacons are moving out of the pilot phase and helping retailers and marketers
revolutionize in-store shopping The beacon - a low-cost device that
retailers can attach to store shelves or walls to communicate with customer smartphones
- is coming into its own. Beacon programs are quickly moving out of
beta phase and becoming an integral part of the retail industry. Beacons can be
used to power indoor maps, payments services, and location-sensitive product
catalogs. There are many different beacon hardware vendors and systems -
including Apple's iBeacon system - but they all share some basic
characteristics. Namely, they allow retailers and event organizers to
efficiently communicate indoors, without a need for GPS. Beacon-influenced sales
volume will ramp up quickly, as many forms of in-store marketing take up the
technology, including couponing. iPhone and Android smartphones are compatible
with this technology. We estimate that beacon-triggered messages could directly
influence up to $4.1 billion of total US store sales this year (or .1% of sales
volume at top-100 retailers). That figure will grow 10X in 2016.

Ecommerce and Social Media: Shopping In The Cloud By 2018, retail
ecommerce will reach nearly $2.5 trillion worldwide, according to eMarketer's
forecasts. Currently, China tops the ecommerce markets, followed closely by the
US, the UK taking a distant third. With over 60% of consumers researching
products online before making purchase decisions it's no wonder online sales are
climbing and unsurprising that ecommerce retailers are doing their best to make
purchases happen online. In 2014, Social media sites with the highest influence
include Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter - with peak volumes of traffic in that
order. Facebook dominated the realm last year sending 60% of all ecommerce
referrals. Thanks to its broad accessibility and user-reliance, social media's
influence on ecommerce continues to rocket, and Shopify's analysis of 37 million
social media visits resulting in 529,000 orders further illuminates this power.
In 2015 it's predicted that over 5% of online spend will be directed from social
Next-Gen Cybersecurity Is All About Behavior Recognition Rather than
focusing on stopping cybercriminals with walls, new technologies are emerging
that work to identify cybercriminals instead. Take the relatively new startup
BioCatch. BioCatch's technology works to identify patterns of user behavior in
certain applications, creating user profiles that can then be matched to
subsequent visits. This new technology uses atypical variations in parameters,
like typing speed, mouse movement, keyboard strokes, tapping force and swipe
patterns instead of geographical location. Take this practical example: After a
few logins, this system will learn that you tend to browse slowly, tap icons
hard and type at an average speed. If someone gets ahold of your login
information and browses quickly, with fast typing speed and weak "taps," the
system will trigger a fraudulent use, and your hacker will be forced to provide
further authenticating details (or, more likely, give up the effort). Similar
technology, focused on positively identifying people based on behaviors and
biometric signatures, is beginning to emerge from other companies, as well.
There are some weaknesses, however, as human behavior isn't always consistent;
these systems could trigger false positives and potentially lock people out of
their own accounts. They also do nothing to ensure first-line security, such as
protecting passwords from leaking in the first place.

with insurance should not be aggressively prosecuted. Everett Mitchell, who made
the remarks during a "Best Policing Practices" panel on campus last Tuesday,

equal justice for all, and in reforms to our criminal justice system that
address disparities in policing for people of color," he said. MediaTrackers
