"Clearly, cyber will be an element of almost any crisis we’re going to see in the future"  Stated yesterday to U.S. Senators by Vice Adm. Michael Rogers the nominee to run the National Security Agency. This too can be applied to ORC as the data breaches continue to mount by organized international crime organizations in an attempt to steal as many credit cards as possible to flood the world and specifically the U.S. before EMV rolls out. While many may think this is a dramatic comment it is in fact retail's reality. As the criminals on the ground use the cards in stores nationwide, Loss Prevention executives and our law enforcement counterparts are the foot soldiers tasked with stopping this epidemic. We've seen five data breaches in the last four months alone and now the cards are hitting the market. Be careful and be safe but remember this is a war on retail and you are the first line of defense. As the IT Security executives work hard to try to keep them out, LP works hard once they get in.

Members of SC credit card fraud ring sentenced to federal prison
Nine members of a credit card fraud ring that operated in South Carolina were sentenced in Columbia Tuesday to federal prison terms ranging from 2 to 5 years. Members of the gang used hand-held credit card reading devices - called skimmers - to capture legitimate credit card information which was then used to create bogus credit cards from credit card “blanks.” State, federal and law enforcement agencies in Lexington, Richland and Greenville counties investigated about $361K in fraudulent charges that were made to buy goods and services including retail gift cards. An estimated 1,800 credit cards were compromised by the ring, Nettles said. (Source
