Webinar: Why RFID Remains The Foundation
For Retail Technology

Thu, May 5, 2022 | 2:00 PM EDT

"Why RFID Remains the Foundation for All Retail Technology" will focus in on the key technologies that retailers are investing in, and why inventory accuracy enabled by RFID is a critical enabler to these investments. During this webinar, Checkpoint Systems will partner with Zebra Technologies to walk through the direct impact RFID has made on retail and what steps can be taken to build a concrete business case.

We know that retail technology priorities have rapidly changed over the last few years and will continue to evolve as the world moves past these recent events. At the core, we see that consumer behavior and lack of brand loyalty has driven changes in how the consumer shops and the relative shift from online shopping back to in-store shopping.

As a remedy, we see retailers and brands alike investing in technologies that will elevate the shopping experience for the consumer. However, without the retailer knowing what product they actual have and where it is located, the impact of these technologies can only go so far. RFID adoption continues to improve, as C-Suite executives at leading brands and retail organizations realize the impact inventory visibility has on EVERY technology investment.

With retail evolving so quickly, the consumer behavior is permanently changing and all the technology investments in the world will not matter if you don't know WHERE your inventory is.

Join Checkpoint Systems and Zebra Technologies as we dive into why RFID is the foundation for all retail technologies.

Minn. Bill Creates New Organized Retail Theft Crime
Minnesota Senate approves $200 million public safety bill

The measure would boost spending to law enforcement agencies to help them recruit more officers and stiffen penalties for violent and repeat criminal offenders.

The Minnesota Senate on Monday, April 25, voted 48-19 to advance a public safety plan that would put up
more money for recruiting police officers and stiffen penalties for violent offenders in the state.

The roughly $200 million plan would boost funding to local law enforcement agencies to help them recruit and retain more officers and bring on additional equipment,
set new criminal penalties for carjacking, organized retail theft and fleeing a police officer, and put in place tougher penalties for those who commit repeat offenses, especially for violent crimes.

It would also make public prosecutors' charging decisions and judges' sentencing decisions in an effort that GOP lawmakers said would
help to make sentences for violent offenders more uniform around the state. They said Twin Cities area county attorneys had recently made sentencing decisions that they felt broke with the Legislature's intent and they sought to make more specific what lawmakers expected of them.

"This is not a time to build bigger bureaucracies, this is a time to react to the criminal threat that is endangering our citizens," the bill's author, Sen. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove, said. "It's time to let the people know what's really going on. I keep hearing from citizens almost every day, '
Why aren't they prosecuting?'"

During the more than four-hour debate, DFL lawmakers said the proposal
didn't do enough to prevent causes of crime and disagreed that harsher penalties would deter violent crime in Minnesota. duluthnewstribune.com

Mall Shooting Puts Violence Prevention Policies in Spotlight
U.S. Department of Labor Investigation of Boise Mall Shooting Finds Security Company Exposed Officers to Dangers of Workplace Violence

OSHA cites Professional Security Consultants Inc. after unarmed officer fatally shot

A federal investigation has determined that Professional Security Consultants Inc. - a Los Angeles-based security company that
provides officers for shopping malls, schools, hotels, hospitals, office buildings and gated communities - repeatedly exposed its employees at the Boise Towne Square mall to workplace violence hazards and failed to follow its own procedures for interacting with armed individuals to enforce the mall's code of conduct.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration initiated an inspection following the fatal shooting of an unarmed security officer on Oct. 25, 2021. OSHA cited the company for
not instituting controls to protect security workers from hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm. the agency proposed penalties totaling $14,502.

"Professional Security Consultants' policies and procedures
did not effectively address the risk of gun violence, a recognized hazard in the security services industry," said OSHA Area Director David Kearns in Boise. "Every worker has the right to a safe and healthful workplace. This employer must provide enhanced safeguards and training to ensure workers have the knowledge and tools to better protect themselves against assault."

In its citation, OSHA provided Professional Security Consultants Inc. with recommendations for developing a workplace violence prevention program. They included
training for security personnel; increased high-visibility signage; and procedures for identifying, tracking and communicating information on high-risk people, persons of interest and habitual offenders of the mall's firearms prohibition.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Professional Security Consultants also provides security consulting, executive protection and event planning services. It
employs about 2,900 workers.

Cracking Down on NYC Shoplifters
NYC Mayor Eric Adams on his approach to crime: '60 Minutes' Interview
Mayor Adams has been trying to help the city make a turn since he took over 114 days ago. Tens of thousands of small businesses here have disappeared since the pandemic, unemployment is nearly twice the national average, and
major crime is up 43% from this time last year.

Adams got to city hall by winning a hotly contested Democratic primary in which he
promised to restore "law and order." He's described himself as "the face of the new Democratic party," and people all over the country will be watching to see how he addresses rising crime, new COVID outbreaks, and the serious economic damage caused by the pandemic.

Adams supports social and educational programs designed to steer young people away from crime. But he's also called for a
police crackdown on low-level offenses like public drinking and shoplifting and taken steps to clear homeless encampments and stop people from sleeping in the subway. He's deployed new uniformed police units that he says have been specially trained to confiscate illegal guns in high-crime neighborhoods without repeating the abuses of "stop and frisk" policies under Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg. New York's last mayor, Bill de Blasio, disbanded the plainclothes units that did a lot of this work.

Adams said, "
We've moved 1,800 guns off the streets of our city since I've been elected. 1,800. And so we're putting in place the foundation of dealing with the immediate needs of violence, but we're also stopping the pipeline that causes children to get involved in violence." cbsnews.com

Law Enforcement Officers Being Targeted Amid Crime Spike
Police officers are targets of violence as crime spikes across U.S., FBI chief says
A police officer was killed almost every five days in 2021, FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a recent interview. "Violence against law enforcement in this country is one of the biggest phenomena that I think doesn't get enough attention," Wray told CBS News in an interview that aired Sunday night.

"Some of it is
tied to the violent crime problem as a whole," Wray said, adding that he was alarmed at how many officers who died while on duty last year "were killed through things like being ambushed or shot while out on patrol.

Nationwide, 142 officers died in the line of duty in 2021, not including those whose deaths were attributed to medical conditions, according to data compiled by Officers Down. That was up from 103 the previous year.

"The spike in violence against law enforcement, both nationwide and locally, should be alarming to all," Parrish said in a social media post. "Our men and women put on their uniform each with the idea of serving to make our community a safer and better place. I pray for our officers daily.
This is just an example where a regular workday can turn tragic for those wearing the badge."


2022: 40 in the U.S. | 2021: 142 in the U.S. | 2020: 103 in the U.S.

Note: Does not include those whose deaths were attributed to medical conditions, including the coronavirus

'Violent Crime Impact Team'
DC unveils partnership targeting violent crime
After a weekend that saw several people injured in
separate shootings across D.C., including a "sniper-type setup" that sent the Van Ness area to shelter in place Friday, the mayor and the police chief unveiled a partnership with local and federal law enforcement called the Violent Crime Impact Team.

The partners include the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Drug Enforcement Agency; the U.S. Marshals Service; and the Secret Service. The aim is to "
reduce violent crime by using more intelligence-driven operations and enhance our investigative abilities through federal agency partnerships," a news release from the mayor's office said.

During a Monday news conference, Mayor Muriel Bowser said that the partnership was put together based on what is being experienced by the community and comes at a time when
D.C. police resources are more scarce than ever before.

"We cannot allow people to terrorize our communities with guns," Bowser said. "Our message is clear - we will continue to offer people in our city a better path forward, but if people choose to engage in violence, then
they will be held accountable." wtop.com

End of the Pandemic?
The US is out of the Covid-19 pandemic phase, Fauci says
The United States is
out of the Covid-19 pandemic phase, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

"We are certainly, right now, in this country, out of the pandemic phase," Fauci said on PBS NewsHour Tuesday. "Namely, we don't have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths.
We are at a low level right now. So, if you're saying are we out of the pandemic phase in this country? We are."

Nearly 60% of the U.S. Has Had COVID
More than half of Americans have been infected with the virus at least once, the C.D.C. says

But officials caution that people should not presume they have protection against the virus going forward

The common perception that nearly everyone in America seemed to have acquired the Omicron variant last winter may not have been far from the truth. By February 2022, nearly
60 percent of the population had been infected with the coronavirus, almost double the proportion seen in December 2021, according to data released on Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"By February 2022, evidence of previous Covid-19
infections substantially increased among every age group," Dr. Kristie Clarke, the agency researcher who led the study, said at a news briefing.

While some studies suggest that prior infection offers a weaker shield against the virus than vaccines do, the resulting antibodies should provide a reasonable degree of protection against severe illness, at least in the short term. The gains in population-wide immunity may explain
why the new surge that is roaring through China and many countries in Europe has been muted in the United States so far. nytimes.com

Post-COVID Retail Recovery?
Does Increased Leasing Activity Signal Recovery for Retail Sector?
Retail properties of all types, from grocery-anchored centers to enclosed super regional malls, have experienced a burst of leasing activity over the past 12 to 18 months. And even the most pessimistic real estate experts contend that the deal flow reflects the retail industry's recovery.

Preliminary data for the first quarter indicates that retail tenants absorbed 91 million sq. ft. nationally during the prior year-long period, according to Marcus & Millichap. The real estate firm says March 2021 to March 2022 was
the strongest 12-month span in terms of absorption in nearly five years.

"The leasing activity that our team is seeing
signals a larger retail recovery," says Paul Chase, executive vice president of retail agency leasing for JLL. "Retailers have gotten smarter throughout the pandemic."

The firm's fourth quarter
2021 United States Retail Outlook reports an increase in occupied retail space totaling 76.1 million sq. ft., a meaningful reversal from the negative 28 million sq. ft. posted in 2020.

"Retail leasing activity is incredibly strong at our properties," says Daniel Goldware, senior vice president of leasing for Trademark Property Company, which owns 17 mixed-use properties totaling about 10.7 million sq. ft. across the country including the high-profile Galleria Dallas and First Street Napa.

230K Preventable Deaths?
More than 230,000 U.S. COVID deaths were preventable, analysis finds
Roughly 234,000 COVID deaths since last June could have been prevented with a primary series vaccination, according to a newly updated Kaiser Family Foundation analysis. The deaths account for 60% of total adult COVID deaths since June and a quarter of the nearly 1 million fatalities since the pandemic began.

The big picture: The researchers say COVID-19 vaccines remain highly effective in preventing hospitalization and death - even in the face of new, highly contagious variants like Omicron. CDC estimates that in February and March, unvaccinated people were 10 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than people were vaccinated with at least the primary series. axios.com

Chicago Furniture Store Group Defrauded 5 Retail Financing Providers
Six Co-Conspirators Plead Guilty to Hacking and Retail Financing Fraud
Six individuals in Illinois, conspired to defraud at least five retail financing providers of at least $1.6 million between April 2017 and January 2022. During that period, the defendants opened and maintained several retail furniture stores in and around the Chicago area, and established merchant relationships with financing providers. Submitted financing applications in the names of identity theft victims then used the approved accounts to charge the financing providers for fake purchases. They also used social engineering to gain access to merchant accounts belonging to other businesses and change the bank accounts designated to receive payments from one retail financing provider. The defendants then submitted the affected businesses' customer accounts for funding, causing the financing provider to deposit money into defendants accounts. The defendants pled guilty on April 13th to the various fraud related offenses.

When sentenced, each defendant faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison. justice.gov

Abercrombie & Fitch's Downfall
'Exclusion was the root of their success': Netflix doc explores the downfall of Abercrombie & Fitch
The new Netflix documentary "White Hot: The Rise & Fall of Abercrombie & Fitch" dissects both the aspirational nature of the brand and pulls back the curtain on the lawsuits and public relations disasters that tarnished its otherwise pristine image. According to the employees, journalists and activists who appear in the film, the overwhelming theme is that discrimination was actually a feature rather than a bug.

On top of all the scandals (which includes a close relationship between Wexner and accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein), the clothes themselves just seemed to stop being cool.

"At some point those kids that learned that it wasn't cool to be bullied grew up and decided that they didn't want to spend money at a place that made them feel bad. Exclusion was the root of their success. And exclusion itself stopped being quite so cool," said former A&F merchandiser Kjerstin Gruys.

Today, neither Wexner or Jeffries are involved with the company, and Abercrombie's current leadership has made efforts to shed the label's discriminatory past, hiring more diverse employees and emphasizing body positivity. However, despite a fresh PR blitz, some sources in "White Hot" question whether the strides the company have made are enough.  sfgate.com

Growing Supply Chain Concerns
The biggest supply chain risks are...

A new survey reveals what is keeping supply chain executives up at night.

Sixty-eight percent of 244 surveyed supply chain officers see supplier operational issues as a major risk (24%) or moderate risk (44%), according to the PWC Digital Trends in Supply Chain Survey 2022.

Other leading risk areas included securing raw materials from suppliers (64%: 27% major, 37% moderate) and insufficient diversification of supplier base for critical supplies (62%: 43% major, 19% moderate).

Respondents also report internal supply chain issues. The survey reveals that 80% of digital supply chain investments are falling short of expectations. In addition, almost six in 10 (58%) respondents are seeing higher than normal supply chain employee turnover, while 23% say they struggle to develop and retain the "digital native" talent needed to transform supply chains. Another 23% say they struggle to respond to the rapidly evolving environmental social governance (ESG) legislative and regulatory frameworks in relevant jurisdictions. chainstoreage.com

Viewpoint: Leave the Door Open for Employees to Return to Your Organization
Good companies are always on the lookout for good talent. They also recognize that every former employee is a potential future customer, business partner, referral source - and even a potential future employee. Returning employees, also known as "boomerang employees," are an important part of the talent pipeline. This is particularly true in times when there are talent shortages, as well as in sectors experiencing a surge in demand driving a shortfall in available talent, such as health care.

Destigmatize and normalize leaving the organization.

There are organizations that regard an employee's departure as a betrayal, which can lead those who remain to view them negatively. This attitude is neither supportive nor inviting to an individual who might otherwise consider returning one day and can breed ill will with a departing employee. Destigmatizing departures and viewing them as a normal part of employees' career progressions is the first step in leaving the door open for them to return someday.

Provide a great employee experience.

Another part of creating a pathway for former employees to return is to ensure that they have a positive employee experience so that they would want to come back. Good talent managers view employees as consumers: If they don't have a positive experience, they likely won't even consider returning as an option.

Create a good off-boarding experience.

According to Gallup, employees who have a positive exit experience are 2.9 times more likely to recommend that organization to others. At Bain, where they focus specifically on measuring how supported individuals feel at departure, that number is even higher.

Be explicit that the door is open. - Build a robust alumni program that adds value. - Stay in touch. - Stay organized. - Stay flexible. shrm.org

Ransomware Risk is Growing for U.S. Companies
Geopolitical tensions drive ransomware risks for business

While the cyber risks for organizations continue to increase, U.S. companies have taken a more proactive approach to cyber risk management

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and its geopolitical fallout, make this a critical time for businesses to assess their exposure to ransomware attacks and other technological interference. In our recently released 2022 Sanctions Report we noted that the impact, frequency, and intensity of ransomware has increased significantly, presenting continued financial, regulatory, operational and reputational challenges for companies. The war in Ukraine and the resulting sanctions placed on Russia have only served to increase and evolve that threat.

Companies need to enhance their security and compliance controls to prepare for a shift in the way attackers are adapting their tactics to this new reality.
Digitalization Creates Risks

The pandemic supercharged digital transformation trends with significant but often hastily implemented and insufficiently secured technology adoption, usage of the cloud and other remote working and emerging technologies. Seamless global connectivity has made organizations more agile; however, it has also made them more vulnerable to attacks. The attack surface has expanded with cyber-attacks affecting organizations across all industries ranging from infrastructure operators to food producers to healthcare and education facilities. As the capabilities of cybercriminal groups increased in the past years, so have their breadth of targets and attacks now increasingly focus on a combination of disruptive attacks and data theft.

Ransomware's Multiple Impacts

Though many companies have taken steps to improve their security and resilience, no system is impenetrable. Ransomware groups have demonstrated this truth, improving their tactics and tools to maximize the impact and returns of their operations. For instance, new tactics such as double or sometimes triple extortion, where criminals encrypt, exfiltrate and threaten to publish sensitive data have increased hugely over the past two years.

Preparing for a Potential Cyber Attack

With increased risks and regulatory concerns, organizations need to prepare for when a cyberattack will happen, not if it will happen. In the past, cyberattacks could be handled internally and largely by the IT organization, but the sophistication and severity of today's attacks now make this impossible. Organizations need to have an integrated plan that takes into account the many lines of responsibility and stakeholders involved in the event of an attack. securityinfowatch.com

Feds Target Ransomware Group
FBI Alert: Have You Been Bitten by BlackCat Ransomware?

Feds Seek Intelligence to Disrupt the Ransomware Group Also Known as Alphv

Has your organization been bitten by BlackCat ransomware, aka Alphv? If so, the FBI wants to hear details about how attackers broke in, the cryptocurrency wallet addresses used to receive ransoms and other information that could help law enforcement authorities better track and block future attacks.

The FBI flash alert also includes known indicators of compromise tied to Alphv/BlackCat, as well as tactics, techniques and procedures associated with the group's attacks, not least so organizations can better protect themselves and watch for attacks by this ransomware-as-a-service operation.

The FBI says it knows of at least 60 organizations worldwide that fell victim to Alphv/BlackCat by March. The criminal group posts names and leaks data for a subset of its victims, as part of a double-extortion tactic designed to increase the pressure on a victim to meet its ransom demand.

"BlackCat-affiliated threat actors typically request ransom payments of several million dollars in Bitcoin and Monero but have accepted ransom payments below the initial ransom demand amount," the FBI says. "Many of the developers and money launderers for BlackCat/Alphv are linked to DarkSide/BlackMatter, indicating they have extensive networks and experience with ransomware operations."

Since March 30, the Alphv/BlackCat data leak site has listed 16 fresh victims, according to Israeli threat intelligence firm Kela.

Multiple security experts have suggested that DarkSide, which went dark last summer after its politically disastrous attack against Colonial Pipeline in the U.S., later rebooted as BlackMatter and then by last November as Alphv/BlackCat (see: Ransomware: Alphv/BlackCat Is DarkSide/BlackMatter Reboot). govinfosecurity.com

Cybercriminals Suffering from Russia's War in Ukraine
Russia's war on Ukraine making life difficult for Russian cybercriminals
Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine has put a serious crimp in cybercriminals' ability to move and cash out their ill-gotten profits, forcing complicated workarounds and an unsure future, according to an analysis from threat intelligence firm Flashpoint.

The international sanctions targeting large chunks of Russia's banking system - along with the Russian government's efforts to counteract them, recent international law enforcement actions against cybercrime forums Hydra Marketplace and RaidForums and measures taken by the Russian government to more tightly control its internet infrastructure - "has challenged the status quo between Russian cybercriminals and the country that turns a blind eye to, or supports, their illicit activities," Flashpoint researchers wrote in a blog post Thursday.

"It has also prompted threat actors to pursue workarounds to transfer funds between Russia and other countries, either through novel means or by re-calibrating existing cash-out methods - as well as scramble for safety," the researchers wrote. cyberscoop.com

NY State New bill targets crypto 'rug pulls,' theft
The bill would amend the state penal code to include definitions of some common types of cryptocurrency scams.

That includes "rug pulls," the term for when a cryptocurrency developer launches a project, attracts investors and disappears with the money. Rug pulls have been a particular problem in the fast-growing sector of decentralized finance or DeFi. DeFi protocols allow people to exchange virtual currencies peer-to-peer on public blockchains. Almost 97% of all cryptocurrency stolen in the first three months of this year was taken from DeFi protocols, Chainalysis found.

If passed, the bill would define private key fraud in the penal code as the theft of a person's private keys to a cryptocurrency wallet. It would penalize cryptocurrency developers if they fail to publicly disclose personal crypto holdings. A general term of virtual token fraud would apply to people who engage in any other form of deceptive or fraudulent acts in the purchase or sale of virtual tokens. crainesnewyork.com

NY State Senator's Bill Builds Legal Framework to Prosecute Crypto Crimes

COVID Impact's Best Buy Canada's HQ Plans
Best Buy Relocating Canadian Corporate Headquarters to Adopt Hybrid Work-From-Home Model
Retail giant Best Buy Canada is moving its corporate offices as it embraces a digital-first approach to the workplace. The company is targeting May when it will relocate from its current 140,000-square-foot head office space in Burnaby to a new 70,000-square-foot space in the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver.

The new office space will be used for intentional connection, collaboration, to inspire cross-functional innovation and serve as a space for those who want/need the option to work in an office. Carol Graziani, Director of Diversity and Inclusion for Best Buy, who also wears a hat for employee experience and the corporate environment, said prior to the pandemic the retailer had about 1,200 people assigned to the corporate headquarters.

"We were going to launch that in April of 2020. Then the world changed and we went to 100 per cent corporate employees working remotely. So the fortunate piece was we already had the infrastructure and the technology in place to facilitate remote work two days a week and we just pivoted because when the lockdown happened we closed our office.

"But the vast majority of our employees are basically on site when they want to be here or when their leaders deem it's an advantage to come together," she said.

"This differs a little from what you hear about hybrid. In the hybrid model, companies say you have to be on site two to three days a week. We're basically saying we're not requiring you to come on site any number of days a week. It's your choice. You can be flexible. And when leaders say you know what we want to have a town hall, we want to do some team building, then people will come. Really flexible." retail-insider.com

Retail Sales Bounce Back After Canada Lifts COVID Restrictions
Canadian Retailers Bounce Back After Most Covid Curbs Lift
Canadian retailers posted a strong sales comeback in March after authorities lifted the bulk of Covid restrictions. Receipts rose 1.4% last month, according to preliminary estimates released by Statistics Canada on Friday. That's up from a 0.1% increase in February, the agency said.

The numbers add to evidence that Canada's economy was surprisingly resilient at the start of 2022 in the face of Covid-19 restrictions meant to contain the spread of the omicron variant. That's one of the reasons the Bank of Canada has begun one of its most aggressive tightening cycles ever to curb three-decade high inflation.

Even the small February gain was stronger than economists were expecting. Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg News predicted a 0.5% decline on the month.

Yet, accelerating inflation adds a potential headwind to consumer spending as households pull back on some purchases. Statistics Canada didn't say how much of the March retail sales was driven by higher prices. Sales volumes actually fell in February. bloombergquint.com

Canadian Retailers Feeling Sting of 6th COVID Wave
Renewed labour crunch in retail, restaurants amid sixth wave
Businesses across Canada are struggling to cope with an apparent sixth wave of COVID-19, as staffing shortages hamper sectors from health care to hospitality and manufacturing - though the interruption remains more manageable than last winter's Omicron variant surge.

In Montreal, parka maker Quartz Co. saw about 10 of its roughly 100 employees stay home with COVID-19 symptoms recently, though co-founder François-Xavier Robert says the absences were shorter than in January.

Retailers, gyms and event spaces are taking yet another hit as workers fall ill or steer clear of those sectors altogether, fearing further lockdowns, said Ryan Mallough, a senior director with the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

"The impact is being felt across the board, in terms of absences," he said. "Some of that nervousness is starting to creep back into the mindset a little bit." bnnbloomberg.ca

Canadian Retailers' Top Concern: Finding Workers
Competition for workers among top issues for retailers in 2022: Deloitte

Survey also finds supply chain issues are top of mind with Canadian retailers

Canadian retailers expect competition for workers to heat up over the next 12 months as the country's jobless rate hits record lows.

A new survey by Deloitte Canada found the fight for talent is expected to emerge as one of the greatest hurdles over the coming year, with 77% of retailers polled saying they believe it will be tough to hold on to their best employees.

Labour shortages are expected to be most acute in store operations, customer service and IT departments, Deloitte's 2022 Canadian retail outlook found. Canada's unemployment rate dropped to 5.3% in March, the lowest jobless rate since comparable data became available in 1976, Statistics Canada said last week.

Meanwhile, supply chain difficulties remain top of mind for retailers, with 87% saying worsening supply chains are the biggest risk for 2022. The vast majority of retailers said they expected customers to prioritize stock availability over brand or store loyalty, making the avoidance of so-called stock-outs-when inventory or products are out of stock-a top priority.

Almost two-thirds of retailers polled said they planned to diversify their overseas supplier network, while 10% said they would reduce their reliance on overseas vendors altogether. canadiangrocer.com

Walmart's Canadian Expansion

The 300,000-square-foot, $175-million facility is part of Walmart Canada's $3.5 billion investment to generate significant growth and speed up the flow of products through the company's supply chain across Canada. It is the company's first distribution centre in British Columbia. It has 17 across Canada.

'Takeover-Style' Robbery Spree
Two charged following series of 'takeover-style' robberies in Toronto & Peel
Two people, including a teenager, have been charged following four retail store robberies in Toronto and Peel Region last week. The incidents took place on April 13, April 14 and April 16, police said. According to police, two suspects would enter a store and execute a "takeover-style robbery."

The suspects, investigators said, would make verbal threats and use physical violence while demanding cash and narcotics. They both fled the area in a stolen car, police said. In a news release issued Wednesday, police said officers found the pair fleeing in a vehicle near the area of the last robbery. Both were taken into custody. toronto.ctvnews.ca

"It wasn't until a few days later when the glass guy came out, and he looked at the window and said, 'You know that's a bullet hole, right?' that I immediately went to the video cameras, played it back, and was able to catch the people doing it standing there," she said.

"They actually came twice, they came at 5 a.m. and attempted to break in through the window, and when that didn't work they left, came back again at 7 in the morning. It was a guy and his girlfriend trying to break in, broad daylight, cars going by behind him, and when that didn't work I literally watched him turn around, reach into his girlfriend's purse, turn back around, aim a gun at the window and shoot it." globalnews.ca

Online Shopping Fraud Surges
Mastercard partners with Microsoft to tackle digital fraud

Mastercard is enhancing its ability to authenticate digital consumers at the moment of purchase.

Global payments technology company Mastercard is launching an enhanced identity solution designed to improve the online shopping experience and prevent digital fraud, in a new collaboration with Microsoft Corp. Mastercard is integrating next-generation authentication and real-time decisioning intelligence capabilities into its existing digital transaction insights solution.

The solution pairs Mastercard's network insights with a retailer's own data to confirm a digital consumer is who they claim to be. This authentication provides financial institutions with additional intelligence to optimize their authorization decisions and approve more genuine transactions.

The Mastercard digital transaction insights solution is used across a range of online checkout instances, including click-to-pay functionality, wearables, digital wallets, and in-app purchases.

As part of the new collaboration, the Microsoft's Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection platform's proprietary risk assessment capability, which leverages adaptive AI to assist in real-time fraud detection by identifying risky behaviors across purchase, account and in-store activities, has been integrated with Mastercard digital transaction insights.

As a result, the companies intend to enable issuers to enhance their decision-making processes for authorizations, chargebacks and refunds.

Online shopping fraud is on the rise

Mastercard and Microsoft are releasing this new digital authentication functionality as fraudulent online transactions rapidly increase. Reports of online shopping fraud more than doubled in 2020, and for the first half of 2021 fraud numbers continued to be far higher than pre-pandemic levels, according to a recent study by fraud management platform Riskified. The study cited latest the report to Congress by the Federal Trade Commission.

The late 2021 study analyzed changes in fraud levels for different categories as observed by Riskified during the 2020 holiday season, benchmarked against January of that year. Cosmetics ranked highest in fraud levels, with a 47% increase in fraud attempts. The sneakers category saw an 8% increase in fraud attempts, and digital services and children's items rounded out the list, with a 12% and 15% increase in fraud attempts from 2020, respectively. chainstoreage.com

Another Amazon Warehouse Begins Union Vote
Voting opens for Amazon's second union election in New York City
Amazon.com Inc workers on Monday are set to vote on whether to unionize a second warehouse in the New York City borough of Staten Island as organizing efforts at the retailer gain steam.

Employees at the LDJ5 sortation center are weighing whether to join the Amazon Labor Union (ALU), a group led by current and former warehouse workers. Associates at a larger facility known as JFK8 recently voted to join the ALU and create Amazon's first organized workplace in the United States.

A second election win would underscore the ALU's potential to organize more facilities at Amazon, the second largest U.S. private employer and could help spur more organizing efforts at other companies across the country.

Amazon workers from more than 100 other U.S. worksites have expressed interest in unionizing, according to the labor group. A loss would point to the tough road ahead. Amazon is contesting the JFK8 vote before the U.S. National Labor Relations Board, and the company has told workers that unions cannot guarantee better pay or benefits.

The company has said it wants workers' voices to be heard and claims that its opponents depressed turnout at JFK8. The ALU has dismissed the allegations. reuters.com

Pa. lawmakers look to curb online sales of stolen goods by imposing disclosure rules
Often, the stolen goods end up for sale on online platforms such as Amazon, Etsy, eBay and Facebook Marketplace by criminals using screen names and fake business accounts. Unsuspecting consumers who see products being sold online at much lower prices than in brick-and-mortar stores or see them labeled as "new," "new in box" or "new with tags" are potentially buying stolen products and funding an illegal operation that drives up the cost to retailers. Nationally, this problem is estimated to result in losses to retailers in excess of $30 billion annually as well as billions in lost tax revenue for states.

According to a recent study by the Retail Industry Leaders Association, Pennsylvania alone loses nearly $1.2 billion in tax revenue annually from these organized retail crime operations. Federal lawmakers are working on passing legislation to combat this nationwide problem. But in the meantime, some states and retailers are tired of waiting for a bill to reach the president's desk. That includes here in Pennsylvania. Sen. Mike Regan, R-Cumberland/York counties, and Rep. Kathleen Tomlinson, R-Bucks County, have legislation making its way through the General Assembly to crack down on this problem.

Tomlinson's bill unanimously passed the state House and the Senate Consumer Protection & Professional Licensure Committee. The committee last week also passed Regan's companion bill by a 14-0 vote. Their legislation would force third-party high-volume sellers - defined as those who sell at least $5,000 and had at least 200 product sales in a year's time - to disclose basic information such contact information and a bank account to an online marketplace selling their products. pennlive.com

Three Sentenced in Nationwide Card Fraud, Money Laundering Conspiracy
U.S. courts sent three men behind bars for installing skimming devices on ATMs and gas pump pay machines to steal financial information from the credit and debit cards of unsuspecting victims. Davit Simonyan, 30, his brother Vahram Simonyan, 34, and Arsen Galstyan, 34, along with four others orchestrated the nation-wide credit card fraud scheme. After stealing the data, they completed a host of unauthorized transactions including money order purchases and large cash withdrawals from victims' bank accounts, according to the Southern District of California Attorney's Office. Skimming devices are illegal scanners installed on ATMs, point of sale terminals, or gas pumps to capture data and record the Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) of cardholders. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the use of skimming devices creates an economic loss of over US$1 billion annually. "This was a huge criminal enterprise, nationwide," said U.S. District Judge Michael M. Anello. The investigation found that the men generated an estimated $1 million in ill-gotten gains from the scam. Its victims were located across the country, from New York, to Oklahoma, Illinois, Missouri, and across Southern California. occrp.org

Flexibility and molding to the environment you're in is the first step towards integration and inclusion. In order to be absolutely effective, an executive must first become one with their surroundings and mold to what it is as opposed to expecting them to mold to you. Seeing and hearing those subtle differences is the key and changing to it becomes the objective. Once modified, you then have the freedom to influence change and make a difference.
