Retailers looking to mobilize CCTV footage
Surveyed 2,200 large and small retailers in UK, Ireland,
Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden
Retailers are increasingly looking to introduce covert CCTV into their
operations, while two-thirds are planning to use mobile technology to access
footage in the near future.
A study undertaken by the Centre for Retail Research, which was commissioned
by tech solutions supplier Axis Communications, showed that 59% of retailers use
covert CCTV but that 70% of those not using covert CCTV want to start using it
in the future.
In addition, results indicated that 18% of retailers are currently able to
access live recorded footage generated by their security cameras but 66%
aspire to use mobile access for this area of their operations, in the
Some 83% of retailers involved in the research said CCTV reduces losses and
30% are now using fraud analytics to help improve their security, with 60%
planning to do so in the future. Respondents also said that public-view
monitors are being used mainly to deter crime, with 21.8% of retailers placing
them solely at store entrances.
"40% to 60% of small businesses never recover after being hit by natural
disasters" says FEMA
21 percent of small businesses have continuity plans. Yet the effects of lack of
planning can be devastating. Continuity planning is increasingly important, said
Scott Teel, education director at Agility Recovery Solutions, based in
Charlotte. Ready.gov is helpful federal government site. The best protection,
Mr. Teel and many other experts say, is developing a continuity plan that plots
out responses to different disaster situations. Some big companies now even
require small businesses to have a continuity plan in place before they will
work with them, experts said.
Continuity plans that are never used can even help improve business
profitability, said Donna R. Childs, author of the small-business book "Prepare
for the Worst, Plan for the Best."
The process can be easily be broken into five steps. "Most of them are simple,"
said Al Berman, president of the Disaster Recovery Institute. "They include
keeping track of resources, inventory, personnel and physical sites." The plan
should be written and stored in the cloud, as in a Google document, for example,
so it can be retrieved anywhere.
Step 1 is analyzing a business's critical functions. Step 2 is focusing on risks
that could topple the business. These risks could be damaged inventory, lost
data or irate customers. Step 3 creates strategies to protect crucial parts of
the business. Businesses might also want to think about interruption insurance.
Step 4 means testing the plan. This phase is the most-forgotten step, experts
say. Finally, plans should be updated every year, including the contact list.
Amazon, Staffing Co. Say High Court Ruling Nixes Pay
Case for Security Screenings Pay
Amazon.com and warehouse staffing agency Integrity Staffing Solutions have told
a Kentucky federal court that the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling in their
case, along with stark state laws, means that what remains of ex-warehouse
workers' wage-and-hour suit over security screenings pay must be dismissed.
Amazon Can't Escape Class Action Over Background Checks
An Illinois federal judge on Wednesday refused to let Amazon off the hook for
allegations that the company fails to inform rejected applicants of poor marks
on their background checks, though the judge expressed skepticism that the class
action would go much further, as the lead plaintiff remains vulnerable to being
"picked off" by the online retailer.
U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman denied Amazon.com Inc's summary judgment
motion after the employer said it offered potential class representative Gregory
Williams $1,000 to drop his accusations that Amazon and staffing agency SMX LLC
violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The judge said it wasn't clear what
relief Amazon was offering.
Williams seeks to represent a nationwide class of prospective Amazon
employees who weren't informed of negative information on a background check
before having job offers pulled.
Lumber Liquidators To Pay $13.2M In DOJ Settlement -The Cases Just Keep Piling Up - All
to create record-high margins
Guilty of harvesting too much - Unrelated to formaldehyde case
Lumber Liquidators will pay $13.2 million to settle a Department of Justice
investigation primarily related to hardwood flooring the company imported from
foreign suppliers, including Eastern Russia, that harvested more timber than
permitted, the company announced Wednesday.
As part of the deal, which still requires court approval, Virginia-based
Lumber Liquidators agreed to plead guilty to violations of federal customs law
and the Lacey Act, a U.S. conservation law regarding the protection of plants,
fish and wildlife.
The settlement announced Wednesday is unrelated to current California Air
Resources Board-related claims related to the sale of Chinese-made flooring
that allegedly exceeds the state agency's standards for safe formaldehyde
The retailer said its record-high margins were based on creative "sourcing
initiatives" when in fact they came from illegal wood harvesting and the sale of
cheap, toxic floors, according to one lawsuit.
The agreement includes four misdemeanor due care violations of the Lacey Act
and a single felony charge for entry of goods by means of false statements.
Lumber Liquidators also has agreed to implement an Environmental Compliance Plan
to ensure future compliance with the Lacey Act.
UK Shopping basket theft set to soar
Supermarkets are bracing themselves for a new issue this month, with leading
supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry
Checkpoint Systems warning of an increase in shopping basket theft, following
the introduction of the new 5p plastic bag levy.
When the ‘bag tax' was first introduced in Wales and Scotland there were reports
of substantial increases in the number of baskets being pilfered. In
preparation for today's launch, one UK manufacturer received an order for more
than 60,000 wire baskets from one of Britain's largest grocery retailers.
Over the course of a year, one major store in Wales had almost 500 stolen
when it began charging 5p for plastic bags - resulting in a four-figure loss
from just one site. Although WRAP predicts it will cost shoppers just 6.50
pounds a year, history shows that some shoppers will turn to theft to get around
the new law. retailfraud.com
National Retail Federation Forecasts Holiday Sales to Increase 3.7%
The National Retail Federation announced today it expects sales in November and
December (excluding autos, gas and restaurant sales) to increase a solid
3.7 percent to $630.7 billion - significantly higher than the 10-year average of
2.5 percent. Holiday sales in 2015 are expected to represent
approximately 19 percent of the retail industry's annual sales of
$3.2 trillion. Additionally, NRF is forecasting online sales to increase between
6 and 8 percent to as much as $105 billion.
September Comps Fall Flat on Fair Weather, and Storms -
Where have the consumers gone?
Hurricane Joaquin left many areas in the South - notably South Carolina - with
record rainfall and severe flooding. Major retailers including Wal-Mart Stores
Inc. closed units, and the recovery has been somewhat slow.
RetailNext: September sales disappoint, but mall traffic improving
Sales declined a disappointing 8.7% on a year-over-year basis, and transactions
dropped 9.6%. Sales per shoppers dipped 0.5%. In some good news, average
transaction value increased 1.1%, although returns also edged up 0.1%. And while
traffic declined 8.1%, this was down significantly from traffic declines of 9.9%
in August and 11% in July, and the smallest decline in eight months. chainstoreage.com
FTC may delay decision on Staples-Office Depot deal: WSJ
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is likely to delay a decision on approving
Staples Inc's $6.3 billion takeover of rival Office Depot Inc. The companies and
the FTC have been in talks about extending the timeline for approving the deal
in the United States after EU regulators launched an investigation last month,
the WSJ reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
The European Commission has said that the proposed deal could hurt business
customers with international contracts in Europe and those with national
contracts in the Netherlands and Sweden due to the risk of price increases. It
will decide by Feb. 10 whether to clear or block the deal. The proposed deal has
been approved by competition authorities in China, Australia and New Zealand.
Atlanta, GA: Insurance broker sentenced for $3.7mn fraud
involving 800 trucking firms
An Atlanta-area insurance broker received a federal prison sentence this week
after being charged with collecting $3.7 million in premiums for client policies
he never purchased. From 2013 to mid-2014, John Paul Kill of Appeals Insurance
Agency swindled more than 800 commercial trucking companies in nearly a dozen
different states. Kill was convicted of charging his clients for cargo insurance
policy premiums, amassing millions of dollars, while the trucking firms
unknowingly operated without coverage. Investigators with Georgia's Insurance
Commissioner's Office discovered the fraud and - once realizing it involved
customers in multiple jurisdictions - requested assistance from the FBI. The
ensuing joint investigation culminated with Kill pleading guilty in federal
court. Now, he will serve four years in a federal prison and pay $1.23 million
in restitution to his victims.
Bill Would Streamline Licensing, Testing of Ohio Security Officers
Security officers and private investigators would receive one identification
card they could take from job to job under a bill before Ohio lawmakers. The
proposed legislation would eliminate the current requirement that a new
application, background check and fees be submitted each time a security officer
or investigator switches jobs.
The bill would also create standardized training and testing requirements for
security officers and private investigators and makes licenses good for two
years instead of one.

The Silver Lining of Recent Data Breaches
Retailers have always experienced a tension between investing to grow and
investing to improve security. Not surprisingly, we've seen vulnerabilities
arise when marketing and sales initiatives have trumped less sexy initiatives
around security. In 2013, 61 million people had their personal data stolen from
Target. One year later, 56 million credit and debit card numbers were exposed in
Home Depot's breach.
What Is the Silver Lining?
In light of recent breaches, security is finally getting the attention and
prioritization that it deserves. At the same time, developments in retail
technology not only address security concerns, but also create new marketing
opportunities. As a result, improving in-store security no longer has to mean
diverting resources away from other initiatives.
Technologies like P2PE, EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) and mobile payments
provide the ingredients to secure in-store shopping, and modern PIN pads have
the capability to enable all of these security enhancements.
Also, large touch-screens on new PIN pads provide a chance to engage customers
and improve the in-store experience, creating a win-win for the entire business.
These elements combine to create more secure transactions and high-touch
customer engagement. chainstoreage.com

Employees Constitute Bulk of Attacks With Surge in Breaches
From Current & Former Partners
Cyber insurance is fastest-growing segments in insurance
To fight threats today, more enterprises are increasing their information
security spending, collaborating more on threat intelligence efforts, and they
also are turning to cybersecurity insurance policies in larger numbers. While
financial losses from cyber attacks has decreased from $2.7 million in 2014 to
$2.5 million this year.
The survey also found that enterprises are improving in their ability to detect
breaches that are underway. In fact, enterprises reported a 38 percent
increase in detected incidents, this year over last year. They are also
seeing more intellectual property theft, which jumped 56 percent over the
previous year. Another interesting finding: while both current and previous
employees constituted the bulk of attacks aimed at these enterprises, there
have been a noticeable surge in breaches attributed to current and former
partners and suppliers. Data breaches attributed to them are up to 59
percent this year, from 46 percent in 2014.
59 percent of respondents have purchased some level of cyber insurance.
Currently, such policies commonly cover data destruction, denial of service
attacks, theft and extortion; they also may include incident response and
remediation, investigation and cybersecurity audit expenses, other areas of
coverage include privacy notifications, crisis management, forensic
investigations, data restoration and business interruption.
"One of the wonderful things about insurance is it can determine what's good
enough (security), and the actuarial process will provide the math to help
determine what protective measures work and how effective they are. csoonline.com
Retailers Tell Congress EMV Cards Without PIN Provide ‘No Significant Benefits'
to Many Small Businesses
The National Retail Federation today told Congress that new chip-and-signature
credit cards without a PIN will not stop data breaches, and that small
businesses should not be pressured to install the equipment to accept them at
the expense of more effective technology. The new EMV equipment does not stop
breaches," NRF Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French said.
"Indeed, in many cases it provides no significant benefits either to the
business or to the business' regular customers. It is merely an additional
expense small businesses are being told to bear." businesswire.com

Cannon would like 'one-third of future
recruits to come from the military'
By Martha Entwistle
ANAHEIM, Calif. - Now in its "post acquisition chapter," Stanley Security is
making progress on its vertical market strategy and other internal performance
and hiring initiatives, according to Stanley Security president Jim Cannon.
Cannon spoke to Security Systems News at the ASIS show, which took place here
Sept. 27-Oct. 1. He said that the integrator has made good progress in the
healthcare and retail verticals in particular.
"Eighteen months ago we announced that we were targeting specific markets," he
said. The goal was to have an "operational engine that can deliver [support to
those markets,]" he said.
Earlier this year, Stanley announced the creation of vertical operations support
teams. "That team is coming together well," Cannon said.
Cannon became president of Stanley Security in September 2014. Cannon has been
with Stanley Black & Decker since 2001, most recently serving as president of
Stanley Oil and Gas.
Cannon talked about "Stanley Insights," Stanley's efforts on harnessing data,
what he called the "the raw material of our time," to turn it into information
for Stanley customers.
Stanley Insights is a software solution (Stanley Insights Software Solution) and
a new Stanley Security group comprised of data scientists and business
The software and the group help Stanley customers "correlate data streams,
analyze trends and measure business activities and operations."
Another initiative, "Stanley Standards," is designed to ensure that installation
technicians, service technicians and monitoring staff in all of Stanley's 61
branches are highly trained.
Installation, service and monitoring are the "three places you cannot make a
mistake" in the security ecosystem, Cannon said. Launched this summer, Stanley
Standards has overhauled 16 branches. "By the end of the quarter, 28 will be
completed and by the end of the year, all of them will be done," Cannon said.
The other initiative Cannon discussed is one to increase diversity at Stanley.
He wants to hire more women and more veterans. Currently, about 10 percent of
Stanley Security employees are military veterans. Cannon, a military veteran
himself, would like "one-third of our future recruits to come from the

FL: "Significant" Illegal Credit Card & Gift Card Manufacturing
Operation Uncovered in North Miami - Home Raided
Police raided a home in North Miami on Wednesday and inside they found several
hundreds of stolen credit cards. Detectives hauled away at least 200 credit
cards and equipment used to make the bogus cards.
Police said the equipment was used to change prepaid Visa gift cards into
what looks like actual credit cards, and high-priced items police said
crooks, in cases like this, typically buy with fake credit cards and then
resell on the streets. "How they make their money is not just by credit card
numbers, they have to turn it into something tangible," Det. Rodriguez said.

Mystery truck driver steals trailer from Southern California
almond distributor filled with 42,000 pounds of almonds
The almonds never made it to their intended destination -- Bridgetown Natural
Foods in Southeast Portland, where the company makes granola bars, cookies and
other snacks. And that has prompted Bridgetown to file a $184,000 lawsuit for
the value of the almonds against SunnyGem -- the Californian company that it
says released the almonds to the unknown driver -- and Left Coast Logistics, the
Lake Oswego company that Bridgetown contracted with to haul the nuts to
The unidentified driver appears to have carried out the theft by tapping into
some inside information. According to the FBI, highly sophisticated thieves
-- who often act with some privileged knowledge -- have stolen up to $30 billion
dollars worth of cargo each year, including highly valued nuts, fruits and
vegetables, meat, soda pop, cookies, electronics and cigarettes.
