Sears, once the largest U.S. retailer, has filed for bankruptcy
Lampert steps down as CEO
142 stores to close toward the end of the year
Sears Holdings filed for bankruptcy protection early Monday after years of
staying afloat through financial maneuvering and relying on billions of CEO
Eddie Lampert’s own money. Lampert, who has served as CEO for the past five
years, will step down from that post, effective immediately, but remain chairman.
The 125-year-old retailer, once the nation’s largest, said Monday it was
appointing Mohsin Meghji, managing partner of M-III Partners, as its chief
As part of the bankruptcy, Sears will shutter 142 stores toward the end of
the year. It expects to begin liquidation sales shortly.
The bankruptcy filing comes more than a decade after Lampert merged Sears and
Kmart, hoping that forging together the two struggling discounters would create
a more formidable competitor.
Over the years, Lampert shed Sears assets and spun out real estate to pay down
the debt. The company still has roughly 700 stores, which have at times
been barren, unstocked by vendors who have lost their trust. Many of the stores
have never been visited by younger generations of shoppers.

SmartMetric Says Projected Card Fraud Losses of $10 Billion in the USA
Could Cost Retailers $29 Billion in Actual Total Card Fraud Costs by
A 2016 iovation/Aite Group study on EMV’s projected impact on financial fraud
reports that credit card fraud losses may climb to as much as $10 billion in the
United States alone by 2020.
According to a study conducted by Lexis Nexis, “Retail fraud continues to
increase sharply year-on-year, along with its cost.” The average volume and value of fraudulent transactions has risen. And, the level of fraud as a percentage of revenues has moved upwards (1.58%
to 1.80% on average).
For every dollar taken in by a retailer, 1.8% leaves the retailer’s hands due to
the cost of fraud. This is an incredible unseen tax on the public as these fraud
costs are invariably passed on to the consumer through higher retail prices to
cover these card fraud losses said SmartMetric’s President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick,
The real cost of fraud for each $1.00 lost to fraud by a retailer is $2.94,
which involves increased expenses related to chargebacks, fees, merchandise
redistribution, labor/investigation, legal prosecution and IT/software security.
This is a 6% increase from the previous year.
Jury Awards $6.3M In Fatal Calif. Farmers Market Auto Collision
A California jury on Thursday awarded $6.3 million to the family of a
74-year-old man who was struck and killed by a vendor’s vehicle at a Southern
California farmers market, finding the trade association that runs the
market was almost entirely at fault for the accident.
After deliberating for roughly one-and-a-half days following a seven-day trial,
the Long Beach, California, jury returned with a verdict holding the Whittier
Uptown Association 99.5 percent responsible for the death of Armando Martinez,
according to a Friday announcement from Panish Shea & Boyle LLP, which
represented Martinez’s wife and children in the suit.
Martinez was shopping at the Whittier Uptown Association Farmers Market on the
morning of April 1, 2016, when a vehicle being driven through the market by
defendant Maria Acuna backed into him, causing him to fall and hit his head,
suffering fatal injuries, according to the announcement. Whittier is a city
located in the south-east of Los Angeles County.
Walmart Not Liable for Employee’s Off-Duty Sexual Assault
A Walmart employee who was sexually assaulted by a co-worker after work hours
and outside of the workplace could not proceed with her claims that Walmart
negligently hired and retained the co-worker, a California appeals court ruled.
She also could not go forward with her claim that Walmart was negligent in not
warning her about the co-worker's criminal history, the court said.
An employer can be liable for negligent hiring or retention only when the
employer knows or should have known facts that would alert a reasonable person
that the employee "presents an undue risk of harm to third persons in light of
the particular work to be performed," according to California case law.
Walmart had disciplined the co-worker in June 2012 after he made disrespectful
or harassing comments to Walmart employees and customers. He also had two
robbery convictions, one in 1982 and the other in 1994. Walmart was unaware of
this criminal history.
Try Harassment Audits as a Change Agent
Forward-thinking companies are looking at the #MeToo movement as a chance to
improve their corporate culture. Harassment audits - a combination of culture
surveys, identification of harassment risk factors and recommended changes - can
help employers weed out inappropriate conduct.
Harassment audits can take different forms. The best harassment audits analyze
risk factors and survey the workforce, according to attorney Jeanine Gozdecki.
Consider looking for these risk factors outlined in the
EEOC's 2016 harassment report:
● Homogenous workforces.
● Workplaces with significant power disparities.
● Businesses where the work is monotonous.
● Isolated workspaces.
● Workplaces that tolerate alcohol consumption.
● Decentralized workplaces.
Barbara Nett, owner and principal consultant with Savina Consulting in Denver,
said the audits that her firm conducts consist of:
● Interviews with HR professionals to review current policies, existing training
and any analytics on compliance.
● Interviews with executives to understand the culture of the organization and
assess any past or present issues with harassment that are known to management.
● An online survey of employees soliciting anonymous feedback about the
organizational culture, knowledge of harassing behaviors and awareness of
organizational policies related to reporting harassment.
● Feedback on what the organization is doing well and areas where policy or
cultural changes may be needed.
● Recommendations on creating defensible anti-harassment policies, investigation
procedures and accountabilities.
NRF: September retail sales increased 3% over last year; 0.4% over August
Retail sales in September increased 0.4 percent over August on a seasonally
adjusted basis and were up 3 percent year-over-year unadjusted, according to
calculations released today by the National Retail Federation. The numbers
exclude automobiles, gasoline stations and restaurants.
“Retail sales were somewhat softer than expected in September and some of the
weakness can be attributed to Hurricane Florence and geopolitical trade
concerns,” NRF Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz said. “Recent solid wage gains and
other fundamentals continue to propel spending, which has been supported by tax
cuts, saving and access to credit. Today’s numbers confirm an underlying
strength in the industry and a solid trajectory as we go into the fourth
Actual Storms, Not Economic Ones, Explain Retail Sales Dip
A slowdown in U.S. retail sales can be explained by Hurricane Florence, other
unseasonable weather and weakness at department stores, not an economic
slowdown. Nothing can elicit eye rolls from investors quite like hearing a
retailer say that sales were weak because of the weather. Well, sales were weak
last month, and the weather had a lot to do with it.
ICSC Study: ‘Halo Effect’ Drives Online Sales From New Stores
When a retailer opens a new store, not only does brand awareness increase but so
does online traffic, according to a report from the International Council of
Shopping Centers (ICSC). The study quantified what industry experts have said
for some time: new store openings can cause a significant increase in a brand’s
online traffic. The report revealed a new physical store “leads to a 37 percent
average gain in overall traffic to a retailer’s web site and increases its share
of web traffic within that market by an average of 27 percent,” authors of the
report said. “The opposite is also true as web traffic tends to fall when stores
Attention Shoppers: The Background Music You Hear May Not Be Licensed
Music industry goes searching for pirates in retail stores
Services like Spotify and Apple Music have returned the music business to growth
by getting consumers to pay again after years of rampant piracy. But those same
services are being used in violation of usage policies in commercial settings
like coffee shops and small retail stores at an estimated cost of $2.65
billion each year to artists, labels and publishers, according to a new
report from Nielsen Music.
While large retail chains with big budgets use in-store music providers like
Mood Media Corp. (formerly known as Muzak), there are around 21 million smaller
businesses globally that use consumer services without authorization, according
to the report. It surveyed small and medium businesses across the U.S. and six
countries in Europe.

CVS Pharmacy Completes Rollout of Time Delay Safes in All 900 California Stores
70% decline in pharmacy robberies during trail run in Indianapolis
CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS), announced today
that it has completed the rollout of time delay safes in nearly 900 of its
free-standing stores in California. The safes will help prevent pharmacy
robberies and combat the ongoing opioid epidemic by helping to prevent
diversion of controlled substance narcotic medications by keeping them out of
the hands of unauthorized individuals. In addition, the safes will help CVS
Pharmacy ensure the safety and well-being of its customers and employees.
Controlled substance narcotic medications that are sought after by robbers, such
as oxycodone and hydrocodone, are now stored in time delay safes in every CVS
Pharmacy store in the state of California. Time delay safes help deter pharmacy
robberies by electronically delaying the time it takes for pharmacy employees to
be able to open the safe. CVS Pharmacy first implemented time delay safes in
Indianapolis, a city experiencing a high volume of pharmacy robberies, in 2016.
The company saw a 70 percent decline in pharmacy robberies among the
Indianapolis stores where the time delay safes had been installed.

What is Enterprise Risk Management?
How to put cybersecurity threats into a business context
Enterprise risk management (ERM) is the process of assessing risks to identify
both threats to a company’s financial well-being and opportunities in the
market. The goal of an ERM program is to understand an organization's tolerance
for risk, categorize it, and quantify it.
When companies look at enterprise risk, the traditional approach is to look at
financial risks, regulatory risks and operational risks. What happens if the
exchange rate drops and the interest rate rises, if new drugs don't get FDA
approval, or if your main warehouse burns down?
To make the calculation, you take the potential impact of an event and multiply
it by the odds of that event happening. For low-impact events, even a high
probability of occurrence won't affect the company's total risk exposure by
much, while for high-impact events, even a low probability of occurrence is
Risks posed by the cybersecurity threat landscape are increasingly part of
the ERM equation, and that poses a challenge for CISOs and other senior security
professionals. Quantifying the business impact of a cybersecurity event is a
very difficult, if not impossible task, and quantifying the likelihood of such
an event is even harder.
Focusing on business impact is a different way to think about cybersecurity, and
it requires a different mindset than that of tactically responding to
cybersecurity threats. Cybersecurity used to be all about preventing attacks,
and a breach either occurred or it didn't.
"Now, most organizations understand that cybersecurity is not a problem to be
solved but a risk to be managed," says Andrew Morrison, leader of strategy
defense and response for cyber risk services at Deloitte & Touche. "Most of the
market is acclimated to the fact that it's no longer if an attack will occur and
how we will manage it. That entails a totally different mindset. "Risks, by
nature, can be accepted, mitigated, or transferred," he says.
Pair of Reports Paint Picture of Enterprise Security Struggling to Keep Up
The costs associated with data breaches continue to grow at a pace that exceeds
the resources available to protect the organizations dealing with the breaches.
Two new reports, from IBM and EY, make that same point with different data and
slightly different, but definitely related, conclusions. Together they provide a
picture of security incidents that are inevitably expensive but can be made less
so through careful planning.
IBM's study, 22 different factors — ranging from the lack of security
analytics to the presence of the Internet of Things — can have an impact on the
cost, with the overall thrust being that time equals money: The longer it
takes to figure out what has happened and to do something about it, the more
money the effort will consume. And in 2018, the average incident has
consumed $4.24 million in the population studied.
EY also studied the cost of a cybersecurity breach, but from a slightly
different perspective: that of cybersecurity in the context of overall business
advantage. While 55% of the companies also surveyed by Ponemon on its behalf had
some sort of business continuity management team in place, EY found that 87% of
the companies were working with limited cybersecurity and resilience
capabilities. While the two facts are not mutually exclusive, they suggest that
companies have business continuity or cybersecurity teams who operate within
very tightly constrained resources.
Those constrained resources still have room for cybersecurity incidents that
cost companies an average of $3.62 million per incident. While a different total
than in IBM's study, the two numbers are in the same financial neighborhood,
with each representing a significant sum for many organizations.
Most IT Security Pros Want to Change Jobs
If you're an IT security professional looking for a new job, you're not alone. A
new report on IT security job trends finds that 60% of survey respondents are
looking to leave their current positions.
Limits on job growth and dissatisfaction with their current jobs are the leading
reasons security pros say they are seeking a change, according to the report. An
unhealthy work environment, lack of IT security prioritization, and
unclear job expectations round out the top five drivers for change.
What would it take for the survey respondents to stay in their current
positions? Improved work-life balance, management who takes their security
concerns seriously, and better sponsorship for new courses and
certifications are the big winners.
Cops Told ‘Don’t Look’ at New iPhones to Avoid Face ID Lock-Out
Police have yet to completely wrap their heads around modern iPhones like the X
and XS, and that's clearer than ever thanks to a leak. Motherboard has obtained
a presentation slide from forensics company Elcomsoft telling law enforcement to
avoid looking at iPhones with Face ID. If they gaze at it too many times
(five), the company said, they risk being locked out much like Apple's Craig
Federighi was during the iPhone X launch event. They'd then have to enter a
passcode that they likely can't obtain under the US Constitution's Fifth
Amendment, which protects suspects from having to provide self-incriminating
There are ways around this system, whether or not they're ethically sound -- the
FBI recently forced a suspect to unlock his iPhone X using Face ID. Some
warrants can explicitly offer permission to use face unlocking.

Cabela's Tries To Stop Ex-Employees' E-Commerce
Sporting goods retailer Cabela’s told a Delaware Chancery Court judge in a brief
made public late Thursday that a group of former employees should be stopped
from launching a new online retail enterprise because it violates their
employment agreements. In the document filed Oct. 4, Cabela’s LLC said former
senior employees Ryan Wellman, Mike Riddle, Trent Santero and Jeremy Nesbitt are
set to launch an online sporting goods retail operation called NextGen
Outfitters LLC later this month that will compete directly with Cabela’s despite
provisions in their employment agreements barring any competition.
The four workers had direct access to confidential and proprietary
information about Cabela’s vendors and costs and were also highly compensated
with lucrative stock awards, the brief said. In exchange, the employees
signed onto proprietary matters agreements that outlined their obligations in
protecting the company’s confidential information.
What you need to know before outsourcing your
holiday fraud screening
The holiday shopping rush isn’t just for busy consumers, it’s also a time when
fraud attempts spike against online retailers.
And as organized crime gets better at beating basic fraud-screening procedures,
merchants seem to face a choice: Risk losing good customers by automatically
declining more orders or risk slowing down fulfillment by manually reviewing
more orders. However, merchants can also opt for more manual review and
outsource it to a third-party fraud prevention service. The cost can be well
worth the savings in staff time, lost sales, and fraud costs.
When to consider outsourcing your peak-season manual fraud screening
Is working with an outside fraud-prevention provider worth considering for this
holiday season? It might be, if any of the following are true for your business.
● Your internal fraud team has concerns about fraud protection during peaks.
● You’ve experienced order-decision bottlenecks during past sales peaks.
● You’ve suffered higher fraud losses during past sales peaks.
● Your false decline rate has increased during sales peaks
● You have VIP and social-media influencer clients you can’t afford to alienate
with false declines or poor customer service.
Strong economy and consumer confidence deliver
rosy online holiday sales forecasts
online holiday sales may increase 13.5% year over year, reaching $151
billion in November and December, Forrester Research Inc. estimates.
In the 2017 holiday season, Forrester estimates that U.S. consumers spent $133
billion online, which includes both desktop and mobile devices. Forrester’s
13.5% increase for the 2018 holiday season is based on several factors,
including increased consumer confidence and a strong economy, says Susan Wu,
director of ForecastView at Forrester.
The research firm’s healthy 2018 holiday sales e-commerce projection is in
contrast to its in-store projection, which is a 1.7% year-over-year increase to
$567 billion. Shoppers are increasingly using the internet to help with gift
finding, Wu says.

Tip of the Day
by Vector Security Networks
As decision makers for our companies, we all have a responsibility to our
organizations and our teams to make the best possible informed decisions based
on the facts, the cost, the ROI, and our due diligence. With the due diligence
process being the only variable impacted by human opinion, therein lies the
grey. Opinions can vary to the extremes with pitted rivalries being masked as
confidential tidbits all the while being fueled by agendas on steroids, with
even the most casual reference having intentions of deep meaning. All of us are
relegated to our competitors' comments. Retailer or vendor, we all share that
mutual circumstance. But at the end of the day, it's about rising above it and
taking the high road, as difficult as that may be, and providing the most
accurate information and knowledge that we can in order to help the industry.
