IAI and Vector Security Recognize Remarkable Women in Loss Prevention: Carmen DuBose
 

Carmen DuBose, CFI, LPC
Regional Vice President of Loss Prevention
Hibbett Sports

Her Journey
Carmen DuBose initially describes herself as “Homegrown Hibbett!” This is an endearing term used at Hibbett Sports for associates with outstanding tenure at the organization. Carmen has been with Hibbett for almost 15 years. According to Carmen, there has been valuable benefit to staying in one environment. “Loyalty is an important quality to me,” she said. “I’ve been loyal to Hibbett and Hibbett has been loyal to me. I was extremely lucky to find the right company for me right out of college.”

“I’ve been on both sides of the business: operations and loss prevention. From a career standpoint, that’s been beneficial because I know the company’s in’s and out’s and that helps me to be a better decision-maker.”

Carmen’s current role includes responsibility for overall protection of the company’s assets including people, profitability, and brand. She started with Hibbett as a part-time sales associate and quickly worked her way up to store manager, managing three different retail locations.

“The last store I ran was one of the highest shrinkage stores in the company before I became manager,” said Carmen. “This was the first time in my retail career where I became heavily involved in the Loss Prevention side of the job and decided that this was what I wanted my career path to be.” She then started as a Regional Loss Prevention Manager covering up to 70 stores across 10 states. Navigating through the ranks, Carmen achieved Director of Loss Prevention in 2008, supervising seven Regional LPMs. She then became Regional Vice President of Loss Prevention in February 2014 and currently supervises 11 RLPMs covering 500 stores, a Loss Prevention Analyst, and a Corporate Office LP Associate.

Read the rest of Carmen's story in this special edition of the CFInsider.
 

"The best part of my job is training and developing my team," said Carmen.
"Seeing a new Regional Loss Prevention Manager reach his or her goals makes my job rewarding."

The International Association of Interviewers (IAI) teamed up with Vector Security to recognize remarkable women in loss prevention through a special edition of the CFInsider, a publication of IAI. The group selected individuals who are well-rounded, tenured in their profession, value continuing education and are all-around excellent leaders in their organizations as well as the overall loss prevention field.

IAI based its selections on the key principles of IAI, then narrowed the list based upon these criteria: Industry Commitment, Dedication to Learning, Leadership Qualities, and Career Journey.

IAI will continue to recognize and honor remarkable women in the LP field each year by devoting a special edition of the CFInsider to them, as well as columns in their regular publication and dedicated space on their website, www.certifiedinterviewer.com.

Cost of Retail Fraud Jumps 10% Over 2013

Every $100 of Fraud Costs Merchants $308 - Up from $279 in 2013, according to study  LexisNexis Risk Solutions released today its sixth annual True Cost of Fraud study, which reveals that fraud is eating deeper into retailers’ revenues. Merchants lost 0.68% of revenue to fraud in 2014 in comparison to 0.51% in 2013. Losses are on the rise as fraudsters dramatically increased their efforts, often overwhelming merchants. Another driver causing the cost of fraud to rise to $308 (2014) from $279 (2013), a 10 percent increase, is retailers’ forays into the mobile channel, which is now a must-have tool to reach and engage customers. As the mobile channel grows, fraud is growing right along with it. This year’s study results indicate that mobile channel fraud costs merchants $334 for every $100 of fraud loss. Many of the tools designed to stop fraud in the eCommerce channel aren’t always as effective in the mobile space. The study also indicates that large eCommerce merchants are among the most at risk of fraud compared to other types of merchants. Even though their general fraud awareness and use of existing fraud solutions is high compared to all merchant categories, large eCommerce companies have reduced the number of fraud solutions that they use.

Home Depot Upped Defenses, But Hacker Moved Faster - Retailer Culture of Preparation and Testing No Match for Stealthy Data Thieves  In the weeks after a massive data theft at Target Corp. became public in December, senior executives at Home Depot Inc. assembled a task force at their headquarters in Atlanta to draw up a plan to avoid becoming a victim of a similar attack. By January, the group had produced recommendations that included new technology to fully encrypt payment card data at the chain's 2,200 U.S. and Canadian stores. But it wasn't until April - after months of testing - that Home Depot signed a more than $7 million contract with a data security provider to begin the work. By then, the hackers might already have cracked the fourth-largest retailer's payment systems. And by early September, when the company says it became aware it was hacked, the encryption system had only been rolled out to a quarter of its stores. Retailers have embraced the Internet, but haven't fully come to grips with its speed or sense of urgency. Hackers move quickly to exploit flaws - unlike the decision-making and drawn-out testing procedures that corporations use when making big changes to store systems. That difference can leave retailers hopelessly behind their new adversaries. (Source wsj.com)

Saks Says No Breach of Systems in Credit-Theft Scheme  Saks Fifth Avenue said Friday that its network and systems weren’t compromised when six employees at its Fifth Avenue flagship allegedly stole customers' credit-card information and used it to purchase more than $400,000 worth of shoes, handbags and other merchandise. "All customers have been notified, and their accounts have been restored," Saks said. "The incident involved several retailers, and there was no compromise to the security of Saks Fifth Avenue’s networks or systems." As we reported in our ORC column in the Daily last Thursday, the six employees were arrested after using the credit-card information of 22 Saks customers to make purchases, beginning in mid-May and stretching until Sept 5. The amounts charged ranged from more than $1,000 to, on Aug. 29, a charge of more than $44,000 that included over 90 transactions. On several occasions, the complaint said, the suspects, who haven’t yet been charged, returned to the store merchandise purchased under the fraudulent scheme and had amounts credited to the stolen accounts.

Survey shows most organizations unable to keep up with state-sponsored cyberattacks  As foreign state-sponsored attackers turn up the heat on corporate targets, security operations staffers are losing confidence in their ability to stave off these threats. New survey results released this week showed that confidence levels among IT security professionals has slipped this year, with fewer than half of them feeling sure they can keep up with new and emerging threats. The study found that 59% of respondents believe their organizations are likely to be the target of a state-sponsored attack sometime in the next six months. (Source darkreading.com)

Don't be the 'Chief Scapegoat Officer' - How a good CSO confronts news of a data breach  Breaches are inevitable, but those tasked with detecting and responding to them say there are ways to avoid becoming the "Chief Scapegoat Officer." What goes through the mind of a CSO/CISO upon being told by his or her team that their organization has been breached? This is not an idle or theoretical question. It seems that almost every day brings news of yet another breach of a high-profile organization, with the potential number of consumer victims running into the tens of millions, and the costs to the company running into hundreds of millions, or even billions when the long-term cost of brand damage is included. So it makes sense that C-level executives with "Security" as part of their title would be the ones facing questions about how it happened and what to do about it, not to mention accountability for it.

9/11 Terrorism Insurance Law Set to Expire - Could expose retailers financially  In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it became next-to-impossible for retailers, shopping malls and other businesses to obtain insurance to protect their buildings against terrorist attacks. That’s why the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by then-President George W. Bush in 2002. With the law now set to expire at the end of this year, the NRF and other business groups told Congress in a letter this week that the program is still needed. (Source nrf.com)

Security measures behind the iPhone's new Apple Pay  The adoption of Apple’s new mobile payment system depends on retailers installing terminals with new technology, and consumers finding it easier to pay with a smartphone than with plastic or cash. Users can either transfer their iTunes credit card details to Apple Pay or they can take a photograph of their card in order to add a credit card to Apple Pay. After verifying a credit or debit card with the issuing bank, the card is active in Apple Pay. However, Apple says, the payment information is not stored on the phone. Rather, a 16-digit device identification number is combined with a one-time payment number with a dynamic security code for each payment. The consumer’s identity is verified using the Touch ID biometric fingerprint scanner. The results, hopes Apple, is a secure way to pay with a smartphone in stores. (Source internetretailer.com)

Urban Outfitters Criticized for Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt 
Kent State University, the site of a shooting in 1970 that killed four students, criticized Urban Outfitters Inc. for selling a sweatshirt with its college logo and what appears to be splattered blood. "We take great offense to a company using our pain for their publicity and profit," the Ohio university said in a statement online. "This item is beyond poor taste and trivializes a loss of life that still hurts the Kent State community today." Urban Outfitters, a retail chain with a history of stocking controversial items, sold the one-of-a kind item for $129 on its website as part of an assortment of vintage clothing.

Home Depot Data Breach Could Be the Largest Yet - Could reach 60 million credit card numbers - 50% higher than Target  The retailer said the exact number of customers affected was still not clear. But a person briefed on the investigation said the total number of credit card numbers stolen at Home Depot could top 60 million. By comparison, the breach last year at Target, the largest known attack to date, affected 40 million cardholders. Security experts believe that the same group of criminals in Eastern Europe is behind the attacks. Buried in the malware used in the Home Depot attack were links to websites that reference the United States role in the conflict in Ukraine. (Source nytimes.com)

MasterCard Digital Enablement Service (MDES): Making Digital Payments Happen  The convergence of physical and digital commerce is not in the future, it’s happening now. Connected devices such as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and wearables such as the Apple Watch are blurring those lines as they play an increasingly prominent role in all aspects of our daily lives. This shift of every device becoming a shopping device is the biggest change we’ve seen in payments since the introduction of plastic, and yesterday’s news is a defining moment in the industry’s evolution. Given this changing landscape, over the past two years, we’ve focused on developing a secure platform to enable consumers to use their cards when, where and how they want. We’ve come up with a solution that supports the new digital ecosystem we live in today, called the MasterCard Digital Enablement Service – also known as “MDES”. Here's what you need to know about MDES and the technology pioneered to enable secure transactions. (Source mastercard.com)

Retail Breaches Could Spur Channel Business, Modernized Payment Systems  The retail industry, reeling from a litany of recent credit card breaches, could finally get a long-awaited injection of data protection technology, creating opportunities for solution providers that specialize in data security, compliance assessments and modern payment terminal deployments. Target, Home Depot and other large retailers will be among the first to roll out terminals that support chip-and-PIN cards, but the technology alone doesn't provide the data security benefits, say solution providers. Newly manufactured, encrypted payment terminals would provide the greatest benefit in reducing fraud and help ease the barrage of data breaches, said Chris Camejo, director of consulting and professional services at NTT Com Security, Bloomfield, Conn. "Encryption needs to happen in the terminal hardware and it's a technology that might have prevented many of these recent breaches," Camejo said. "Until now, most merchants look at the price tag of point-to-point encryption and decide not to do it." (Source crn.com)

Man dies after shooting in River Oaks Mall in Calumet City, IL  An 18-year-old South Holland man was pronounced dead Saturday after being shot following an altercation in a Calumet City shopping mall parking lot. Ike King, was pronounced dead at 7:09 p.m. Saturday. An autopsy indicated that he was shot in the back and his death was ruled a homicide. King was part of a group of between five and eight teenagers who were involved in a fight outside of the River Oaks Center on the north side of the mall east of the JC Penney store, according to Calumet City Police Chief Edward L. Gilmore. After the fight ended, the two groups separated and walked in different directions, Gilmore said. King and another person in his group walked through a short cut that brought them to the southeast side of the mall, police said. At that point, King and the other person encountered members of the group they had just fought, Gilmore said. At that point one of the people in the opposing group fired shots and struck King in the back by at least one or more bullets. (Source chicagotribune.com)

Surveillance video reveals new details in Richmond, CA officer-involved shooting  A 24-year-old man is the first to be killed by Richmond police in seven years.

Cameras only provide a partial view of the fight between the officer and suspect but the video shows Delik watching the scuffle from the doorway while another customer walks by. Then the officer gets up and as he backs up raises his arm and fires. The video then shows Perez as he staggers into the store, holding his stomach, walks a few feet into the store, collapses and dies in an aisle. (Source ktvu.com)

Tip of the Day
Sponsored by Vector Security

Being too close to the trees to see the forest is an expression that also fits not appreciating the role you play on your own team. With the needs of the day seemingly always taking priority, it's difficult for some to step back and truly see the value you can add to your own team. Realizing it and accepting the responsibility as a team member is half the battle. But doing something with it and truly adding value is what helps the team win the game. Every group, every department is in fact a team and every member plays a vital role towards the success and the survival of that team. That's why that old expression - One for all and all for one - took such a hold in literature. Because it is that simple. The hard part is taking responsibility for it.
