The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Retail Mass Shootings & Federal ORC Crackdown

500 Supermarket Shootings - 137 Deaths Since 2020
Since 2020, there have been about 500 shootings at major supermarket chains in America, study finds

12 large chains have experienced a combined 137 firearm-related deaths since 2020.

Supermarkets have become a battleground as the United States continues to grapple with mass shootings. And some gun-control advocates are challenging companies to do more.

When a white supremacist gunman murdered 10 people at a Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, New York last month, the store became just the latest retailer to experience a deadly mass shooting. In recent years, mass shootings have also occurred at King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, a Weis Markets in Eaton Township, Pennsylvania, and a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

But even beyond these high-profile mass shootings, supermarkets have long been the target of gun violence, according to exclusive data from gun-control advocacy group Guns Down America. By analyzing media reports, the group found that nearly 500 incidents involving firearms have happened in large grocery chains in the past two years.

It found a total of 448 incidents and 137 deaths across 12 large national retailers. Guns Down America estimated that the numbers come out to four shootings a week at large supermarket chains.

Walmart - the largest retailer in the United States - saw the most violence, including 310 gun incidents, and 89 firearm-related deaths. Kroger saw 36 gun incidents and 16 deaths. Ahold Delhaize's Food Lion and Stop & Shop saw a combined total of 29 incidents and eight deaths. Safeway experienced 22 incidents and seven deaths, Publix saw 16 incidents and five deaths, and Aldi had nine incidents and four deaths.

Volsky said that the numbers were "artificially low" because many gun incidents never "make it into the news." Most of the deaths were homicides, although there were a few suicides included as well. The shooting incidents included escalating disagreements between armed parties, armed robberies, and random shootouts.

Volsky said businesses are left with traumatized employees and customers, higher turnover and insurance rates and the lingering perception that the shopping environment isn't safe. businessinsider.com

Leveraging Surveillance to Prevent Retail Mass Shootings
Video provides the tools for operational efficiency and risk mitigation
Mitigating loss is a primary objective of retailers everywhere. Historically, this has meant taking preventive actions against shrinkage, employee theft, and Organized Retail Crime (ORC). Today, retailers are confronted with a new threat as a rise in active shooter incidents has presented new challenges.

These incidents are not isolated to retail, however, and it is a growing nationwide trend of both random and directed attacks making the daily news. The pandemic has also escalated tensions among store-going consumers, while simultaneously seeing the proliferation of self-checkouts, another asset retailers need to effectively manage.

Video Moves Beyond Surveillance

With mass shootings on the rise, shopper and worker safety is at the forefront of every discussion by end users in the physical security market. Video surveillance serves multiple capabilities beyond security and safety and has tapped into new intelligence including active shooter detection.

Layering technology and culling data from camera streams can augment detection and provide early warning of potential breaches and events, tracking suspicious activity such as intruders breaking glass or other predictive behavior by leveraging violence detection analytics throughout the premises.

Video management software helps retailers assess the harbingers of violence, identify the presence of firearms and configurations of weaponry, as well as detect shots fired. Using video surveillance and cameras tied to analytics quickly creates enhanced critical situational awareness - while next-steps are delivered to users in a formulated response approach. Coupled with protocols and tools to address active shooters and armed criminal violence, these analytics can provide preventive measures for retailers. securitytoday.com

Feds Launch New ORC & Smash-and-Grab Crackdown
ICE launches push to crack down on organized retail crime amid surge in smash-and-grab attacks on stores

Officials said the rise in organized retail crimes is a national problem

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Wednesday announced a new initiative to crack down on organized retail crime amid a surge in violent "smash-and-grab" attacks in stores across the country.

"It's a crime that's occurring out in our streets that's becoming large enough where the federal government is announcing its involvement," Thomas Welch, unit chief for ICE Homeland Security Investigation's (HSI) financial crimes unit in Washington D.C., said at a news conference.

The initiative involves a partnership between ICE HSI and the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) to issue a report to highlight red flags that retailers, law enforcement, the public and financial institutions can look for.

They include structured deposits, large purchase of gift cards, high dollar wire transfers, and large purchases of lighter fluid and heat guns. The report urges greater collaboration between law enforcement, retails and financial institutions to share information and coordinate actions.

The announcement comes as a number of incidents have been caught on camera showing thieves raiding stores, clearing out store shelves and fleeing with massive quantities of merchandise -- often shoving past helpless employees in the process.

In 2019, nearly $70 billion of merchandise was taken from retailers in such operations, and that doesn't include the harm inflicted on staff and customers, officials said Wednesday. Since then, the problem has gotten worse.

Officials who spoke at a press conference Wednesday said that the launch marked just a first step in a broader effort, and a sign that the federal government was recognizing this as a serious problem and that it wants to help retailers, state and local law enforcement and financial institutions stamp it out.  foxnews.com

NYC's Gun Violence 'Scourge'
Mayor Eric Adams taps 'gun violence czar' amid spate of NYC bloodshed
Mayor Eric Adams has appointed a "gun violence czar" to tackle a scourge of Big Apple shootings that is only expected to worsen as the summer heat approaches, a high-ranking police official told The Post on Thursday.

Adams tapped Andre T. Mitchell - the founder of a Brooklyn anti-violence group Man Up!, which has previously come under scrutiny from city investigators - for the role. The New York Times on Wednesday first reported that Mitchell will serve in the position, which is sometimes named "gun violence prevention chair" and he will reportedly not be paid in that role.

"Like so many cities across the nation, New York City is facing a gun violence epidemic, and like many of these cities, the sea of gun violence in our city does not have a single point of origin. It flows from many rivers, each contributing to the problem. Mayor Adams has been focused on damming these many rivers, concentrating efforts on intervention and prevention," said spokesman Fabien Levy.

"We will continue to roll out programs in the days, weeks, and months ahead to remove guns from our streets, protect our communities, and create a safe, prosperous, and just city for all New Yorkers." nypost.com

Rising Theft & Crime at the Center of Upcoming DA Recall Race

Voters Blaming Progressive DAs for Theft & Murder Surge
San Francisco's Recall Highlights Pushback Against Progressive Prosecutors

Conservatives have targeted District Attorney Chesa Boudin, blaming him for the city's theft and murder rates. It's a sign that a public weary of crime may be growing dubious about reform.

Gov. Gavin Newsom survived a recall last fall, but things might play out differently for San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, who faces a recall vote on June 7.

Various groups - including a Republican billionaire, tech investors and realtors - have indeed poured millions of dollars into the effort to drive him from office. "We're not dealing with a grass-roots movement," Boudin complained earlier this year. "We're dealing with a small number of wealthy individuals, many of whom are national Republican major donors."

Boudin points out that crime overall has dropped on his watch and remains lower than most other major cities. Still, there are enough high-profile crimes - including dramatic rises in car theft, highly publicized shoplifting and, most importantly, homicides - to make him vulnerable. Polls suggest voters are ready to turn him out. It's not even close.

Boudin is part of a generation of progressive prosecutors who see their role not just as sending offenders to prison, but addressing the underlying roots of crime. As crime rates - particularly homicides - have shot up since the start of the pandemic, their approach has come under increasing attack. "The crime rate of course is going to increase when you're not doing the basic blocking and tackling of prosecuting crimes," says Zack Smith, a legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. "It creates a culture of lawlessness in many of these cities, and the result is what we're seeing, an increase in crime."

There are still plenty of traditional prosecutors who measure success by the sheer number of rapists and murderers they put away. But an increasing number of counties have elected prosecutors who aim not only to fight crime but avoid contributing to mass incarceration, for instance by not prosecuting low-level drug offenses.

These progressive prosecutors, elected in recent years in jurisdictions including Boston, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia and St. Louis, have all encountered pushback. Police unions invariably complain about their approach, while some have seen career prosecutors resign. In Boudin's case, dozens of prosecutors have either quit or been fired, with some joining the recall campaign against him. governing.com

DA Recall Election a Pivotal Moment for Criminal Justice Movement
San Francisco district attorney could lose his job in blow to national movement

Boudin's fight has become a test case for criminal justice reformers - and their foes.

District Attorney Chesa Boudin is a leader of the national movement for criminal justice reform. He could soon become a cautionary tale about its vulnerabilities.

A well-funded recall campaign looks poised to unseat Boudin next week. Its outcome will echo across midterm elections, shaping the elected officials who determine how alleged crimes should be prosecuted amid the nation's oscillating debate over public safety.

"There's no question that if the recall in San Francisco will be successful, it will be the playbook going forward nationally for those who want to roll back criminal justice reform," said Anne Irwin, whose California-based organization Smart Justice has spent money to defend Boudin and elect other progressive prosecutors.

The campaign has become a sort of Rorschach test for how San Franciscans - and Americans - interpret rising anxiety about crime. The recall's supporters see a reckless and incompetent prosecutor who has undermined public safety by prioritizing defendants, seeking lesser charges or avoiding jail time with pretrial diversion programs. Boudin and his backers warn that entrenched interests are exploiting fear and spreading misinformation to throttle a burgeoning national movement away from harsh sentences and over-incarceration.

Less than three years ago, San Francisco voters defied the city's political establishment and channeled a growing criminal justice movement by making Boudin - a former deputy public defender and son of two Weather Underground members convicted of felony murder and robbery for assisting with the getaway-van in a botched armored truck robbery - the city's top prosecutor. Now polls suggest he is likely to lose his job. politico.com

Boudin's Victim Services Division Gets Failing Grade with 50% Turnover
Facing recall, Boudin says he puts victims first. Advocates dispute that
The complaints coming from inside Boudin's office are proof that while the recall may turn on political disagreements over how to prosecute crime, that tension isn't the whole story. There are deeper concerns about the district attorney's management style and the performance of his office - concerns that former prosecutors also have raised.

It would be valuable to hear Boudin's answers to his employees' complaints, but his spokesperson said his schedule was too full to do an interview.

The Victim Services Division is composed of people akin to social workers who seek to connect victims or victims' family members to services like therapy and financial help, such as paying for funerals. It's made up of 42 people, and 20 have left since the beginning of Boudin's tenure - compared with seven people who left in the same time period at the start of Gascón's tenure.  sfchronicle.com

Is the Covid pandemic finally nearing its end?
COVID's behavior in highly vaccinated countries may offer clues to the future
More than two years on from the realisation that we are dealing with a novel pandemic, we are still nervously wondering what comes next. In the UK, Covid infection rates appear to have fallen to their lowest level since the summer of 2021, as has the number of deaths the virus is causing, but we know that new variants are still likely to emerge. So when will the end of this pandemic come, and what might it look like?

The expectation is that eventually the disease will reach endemic levels, meaning immunity in the population will balance out the reproduction of the virus, resulting in a stable level of infection year on year. That stability could include regular, repeatable fluctuations such as seasonality, but we won't know that stability has been achieved unless the same pattern of infections is observed for more than one consecutive year. theguardian.com

Some Stores Keeping COVID Rules in Place
Luxury stores still limiting crowds post-COVID - and won't admit why
COVID-19 is waning, but shopping for a Louis Vuitton bag, a Chanel suit or a pair of Gucci loafers increasingly means standing in line outside a boutique - and luxury brands have been conspicuously tight-lipped on why.

Most elite labels leaned into "appointment shopping" during the height of the pandemic, citing the need for social distancing. But as the threat from the virus recedes, some including Cartier and Harry Winston continue to impose the new policy.

They also have failed to convince shoppers and experts alike of their reasoning - if they bother to explain themselves at all. Major brands including Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Cartier didn't respond to calls and emails from The Post about their persistent use of stanchions in front of store entrances, where queued-up shoppers are quizzed by "greeters" about prospective purchases before entering.

According to experts, roped-off customers can mostly thank a relentless epidemic of smash-and-grab robberies rather than social distancing for ramped-up crowd controls nationwide, including in New York, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco and Seattle. Theft got so bad last year that Beverly Hills hired two private security firms to patrol Rodeo Drive. nypost.com

Retail Workers Face Higher Risk of COVID Death
COVID mortality rate five times higher among labor, retail and service workers, study reveals
A University of South Florida epidemiology associate professor discovered associations between COVID mortality rates and socioeconomic position, gender, ethnicity and race that reveal an urgent need to implement population-based infection control efforts, especially for those in low socioeconomic positions.

The study, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, analyzed nearly 70,000 adults, ages 25 to 64, who died from COVID-19. The team found 68% of COVID-19 deaths the first year of the pandemic were low SEP adults employed in labor, service and retail jobs that require on-site attendance and prolonged close contact with others.

"If we were to immediately heed the calls to return to 'normal' and stop worrying about community spread of the virus, there are certain subsets and members of our community that are going to suffer way more so than other members - and these people have already borne the disproportioned brunt of this pandemic," Salemi said.

As a result, Salemi says the most urgent implication of this study points to immediate actions needed to protect the working class from infection by strengthening federal and state labor laws, empowering the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, adopting safety and health hazard policies and allowing unions to organize for greater protections for worker safety. usf.edu

How to handle a third summer with COVID-19

Is it time to get your second COVID-19 booster?


Will This Trigger U.S. OSHA Inspections?
Three quarters of fire doors fail inspections according to UK's FDIS

A UK fire door inspection organisation has warned of a "tragedy waiting to happen"

The Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS)'s data, based on more than 100,000 fire door inspections carried out by its approved inspectors in 2021, found that 75% of fire doors failed to meet the required standards, putting lives at risk in the event of a fire.

In 2019, FDIS found that 76% of the fire doors it inspected were condemned as not fit for purpose, indicating that there has not been much improvement since its previous inspection data.

Given that these buildings' fire doors are subject to higher use and traffic than other building types, regular inspection and maintenance is key to ensuring they remain fit for purpose throughout their lifespan, highlights the FDIS.

Louise Halton, FDIS Scheme Manager, said: "With the vast majority of fire doors in the UK failing inspections, it's sad to say that a tragedy is simply waiting to happen, especially so in buildings that are home to vulnerable residents. But this situation is entirely preventable and, at this stage, still reversible. A fit for purpose fire door can save lives, so now is the time for all of those responsible for fire safety to urgently inspect fire doors in their buildings and act immediately if faults are identified."

The most common reasons for inspection failure - which can be a result of one or multiple issues - were excessive gaps between the door and the frame (77%), care and maintenance issues (54%), and issues over smoke sealing (37%). In almost a third (31%) of cases, inspections failed due to improper installation - meaning those doors were never fit to perform the task of holding back fire and smoke.  ifsecglobal.com

Massive Security Undertaking Across the Pond
Queen's Platinum Jubilee security fears as 'fixated' fanatics could disrupt celebrations
Thursday marks the beginning of a four-day-long celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne. The weekend will include the Trooping the Colour parade and a concert featuring Elton John plus Queen and Adam Lambert. Britons across the nation are also expected to hold street parties and other celebrations.

However, Philip Grindell, a former Metropolitan Police detective and founder/CEO of Defuse Global, an organisation which protects and advises some of the UK's most recognizable public figures, told Express.co.uk that the Jubilee may be threatened by a number of "fixated" individuals.

The security expert said that there will be a "huge security protocol" around these individuals as they sometimes attempt to "disrupt royal events or gain entry to them". Mr Grindell said these individuals are known to an organisation called FTAC, which stands for the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre.

FTAC is a joint police/mental health unit which was set up in October 2006 by the Home Office, the Department of Health and the Metropolitan police to assess and manage the risk to members of the Royal Family, politicians and public figures from obsessive individuals.

Mr Grindell said that many of these people have "significant" mental health issues and are known to "the police officers that work around the palaces and the protection officers that work closely with the Royal Family". 

According to The Mirror, there are currently 170 figures known to be harassing the Royal Family. Some 10 are logged at the highest danger level, while 128 of them pose a moderate risk and 32 pose a low risk. express.co.uk

Retailers Wage War on Inflation
Facing Inflation-Weary Shoppers, Grocers Fight Price Increases

Kroger and other supermarket chains ask vendors to justify higher prices while some seek different suppliers

Supermarkets and distributors are pushing back on higher prices from food makers, as escalating inflation drives more consumers to rethink their spending.

Kroger Co. and other grocery chains said they are asking brands to prove why higher prices are necessary before accepting them, and warning manufacturers that they will stop carrying products if food companies won't negotiate prices. Some companies said they are switching to new meat suppliers with cheaper products, and are delaying price changes for items like canned goods.

"We don't just accept cost increases," said Don Clark, chief merchandising officer of Giant Eagle Inc. The Pennsylvania-based grocer has been warning some manufacturers looking to impose price changes that higher price tags could push consumers to skip purchases. In other situations, the company paused stocking new items because of cost increases.

U.S. inflation increased 8.3% in April from a year ago, according to the Labor Department, and remains near a four-decade high. Retailers generally have been passing price increases along to consumers, and executives have said that for months shopper demand has remained strong.

Industry executives said that is starting to change, as consumers increasingly look for ways to stretch their dollars. Big retailers, including Walmart Inc. and Target Corp., said in recent weeks that their profits are taking a hit, too, as some consumers move away from big-ticket purchases. Food makers including Kellogg Co. have said they need to protect their margins as transportation, ingredients and other costs rise. wsj.com

White House Continues Battling Formula Shortage
Biden administration sourcing 380,000 pounds of baby formula from Australia as part of 'Operation Fly Formula'

The delivery is expected to include 380,000 pounds of Bubs Australia infant formula and approximately 4.6 million 8-ounce bottles.

The Biden administration announced Wednesday it is acquiring more than 4 million 8-ounce bottles and 380,000 pounds of infant formula from Australia to be delivered to the United States by next week to address the ongoing baby formula shortage gripping the nation.

The move is part of President Biden's "Operation Fly Formula," which was launched last month to speed up the import of infant formula and to begin sending more formula to stores across the U.S.

The president on Wednesday said the administration is sourcing two flights, facilitated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to transport Bubs Australia infant formulas from Melbourne, Australia, to Pennsylvania on June 9 and California on June 11.

The delivery is expected to include 380,000 pounds of Bubs Australia infant formula and approximately 4.6 million 8-ounce bottles. The administration said additional deliveries of Bubs Australia formula will be announced in the coming days. foxnews.com

Amazon To Be Largest Retailer by 2024
Study: The top five U.S. retailers by 2026 will be...

E-commerce is shaking up the upper ranks of the top retailers in the United States.

Amazon will overtake Walmart to become the largest retailer in the United States by 2024, and add more than $294 billion in U.S. sales between 2021 and 2026, according to an annual report by Edge by Ascential.

The report predicts that the top three retailers in the United States by 2026 will be Amazon, Walmart and Costco, with 14.9%, 12.7% and 4.4% of the retailer market share, respectively. The Home Depot and The Kroger Co. round out the top five.

Edge by Ascential's "2022 United States Retail Landscape and Go-to-Market Planning Report" also forecasts that e-commerce will continue to be the largest driver of U.S. retail growth and will top $1 trillion by the end of 2022. E-commerce will account for 30.5% of total retail sales by 2026, according to the report. chainstoreage.com

As retail makes its comeback, it is more important than ever to conserve resources. This is especially important for reducing unnecessary and unexpected spending. Finding ways to reduce costs can be challenging, especially if your team has done a good job of doing more with less. We recommend looking to your foundational LP/AP programs to see if there are opportunities for tighter cost controls - like your key control program.

Locks and keys should be doing more to support the profitability of your organization. Swapping out basic brass locks and keys for a managed Key Control Program can make a big difference, even if you are already using interchangeable cores.

InstaKey clients that convert to an InstaKey Key Control Program save around 80% on rekeys. How?

  • Restricted, serialized keys (keys that cannot be duplicated) put tighter controls on key holder compliance. When keys cannot be duplicated, you can always know what keys are in circulation and who has them.

  • When keys go missing, our user-rekeyable key cores can be rekeyed (without locksmith service) up to nine times before a core needs to be replaced.

  • Cloud-based key tracking software enables retailers to streamline key system record keeping and gain better control of when rekeys happen and monitor associated costs.

  • When you partner with InstaKey, you get a dedicated team of Key Control experts as an extension of your in-house team. We support your Key Control Program to provide materials and best practices to keep a tight control on keyed security and costs.

Are you wasting precious dollars on unnecessary or unexpected locksmith callouts? Do you know how much you are spending? Schedule time to discuss your key control needs and find out if you can reduce spending on Key Control.






DOJ-FBI Cybercrime Crackdown Continues
FBI seizes domains tied to stolen records, DDoS services
The FBI and Justice Department said Tuesday they had seized the domain of a search engine service that claimed to offer users the ability to scour billions of records of personal data from more than 10,000 data breaches, effectively shutting down the criminal operation.

The site, weleakinfo.to, offered a subscription service where customers could access personal information leaked in data breaches, including names, email addresses, usernames, phone numbers and passwords for online accounts. Such information is valuable to cybercriminals looking to commit identity fraud and financial crimes.

U.S. authorities seized a related website, weleakinfo.com, in 2020. The site boasted more than 12 billion personal records and also offered a monitoring feature to alert customers if their data showed up in the database.

One of the original site's operators was sentenced to two years in prison in the Netherlands last year. The unnamed Dutch suspect said that he did not create the site but joined it in early 2016 as an administrator, The Record reported.

Agents also seized two domains, ipstress.in and ovh-booter.com, that offered to conduct "DDoS," or "Distributed Denial of Service" attacks, for hire. In DDoS attacks, cybercriminals flood a target website with traffic in order to render it inoperable.

The FBI coordinated with law enforcement in the Netherlands and Belgium to execute the takedowns. No arrests have been made public in connection with the seizures.

"These seizures are prime examples of the ongoing actions the FBI and our international partners are undertaking to disrupt malicious cyber activity," said Wayne Jacobs, special agent in charge of the FBI Washington Field Office's Criminal and Cyber Division. "Disrupting malicious DDoS operations and dismantling websites that facilitate the theft and sale of stolen personal information is a priority for the FBI." cyberscoop.com

Nike's Tech Worker Backlash
In leaked survey, Nike tech workers sound the alarm on burnout, 'inept' leadership, and a 'never-ending reorg' as Nike struggles to hold on to tech talent

Nearly 300 employees in Nike's global-technology division responded to a recent employee survey.

AdvertisementAn annual survey of Nike's technology employees shows widespread dissatisfaction, according to a copy of the survey results viewed by Insider. The results come as Nike tries to establish itself as a major tech leader, with ambitious plans for everything from direct-to-consumer sales to the metaverse, and as the company tries to hire and hold onto tech talent.

Insiders fear that attrition, which is already high among Nike's tech talent, could accelerate this week. The company's annual bonus plan is tied to remaining employed through May 31.

The technology employees who responded to the survey rated their job satisfaction below employees in other parts of the company in 48 of 51 categories surveyed. In more than half of the categories, technology employees rated their job satisfaction more than 10 percentage points below workers in other parts of the company.

Nearly 300 employees in Nike's global-technology arm responded to the survey. Nike has more than 73,300 total employees, according to its last annual report, and approximately 2,400 technology employees. The survey compares the responses of Nike's global-technology employees to the entire company and to Nike's corporate workforce. businessinsider.com

U.S. Search Engines Manipulated by China
Chinese state media propaganda found in 88% of Google, Bing news searches
A think tank says Chinese state media have proven very effective at influencing search engine results for users seeking information on Xinjiang, a region of China where the Uyghur ethnic minority has been subjected to what the State Department calls genocide.

The findings on the Chinese manipulation of prominent American search engines came via Brookings Institution scholars Friday, following on the heels of the BBC's release of disturbing images of Uyghur detainees accompanied by documents detailing a Chinese shoot-to-kill policy for detainees who try to escape.

The research team compiled daily data over a 120-day period on 12 terms related to Xinjiang and COVID-19 from five different sources: Google Search; Google News; Bing Search; Bing News; and YouTube, which Google owns.

At least one Chinese state-backed news outlet appeared in the top 10 results in 88% of searches, the researchers found. On YouTube, state media appeared even more often, showing up in 98% of searches. cyberscoop.com

#1 Threat to Global Businesses
Ransomware attacks still the #1 threat to businesses and organizations
In 2021, ransomware attacks continued to be one of the most prominent threats targeting businesses and organizations worldwide. High-profile attacks disrupted operations of companies in various sectors.

For example, Colonial Pipeline attack interrupted critical infrastructure, JBS Foods attack influenced food processing, and the CNA breach disrupted the insurance industry.

Following the attacks, pressure of law enforcement on ransomware gangs intensified, though simultaneously these threat actors continued to evolve.

They are not only becoming more technologically sophisticated but are also extensively leveraging the growing cybercrime ecosystem looking to find new partners, services and tools for their operations. helpnetsecurity.com

CCTV: Risk or Relic?
Video Surveillance is Key for Cannabis Industry
While video surveillance systems using advanced cameras have made impressive strides in recent years, some retailers have been reluctant to replace their old, 'reliable' CCTV systems. Some business owners might believe that the simplicity and familiarity of a CCTV system might better suit their small business, but the use of these security relics could open their business up to risks and losses. CCTV systems have no place in the modern retail world.

CCTV v. IP Camera Systems

Though the same terminology is often used erroneously to describe both systems, CCTV and IP camera systems couldn't be more different. True CCTV is an independent, stand-alone system, while modern video surveillance systems can connect to other security equipment and devices via the internet.

These advanced video surveillance systems can be connected to the alarm system and are designed to alert owners whenever there is unauthorized motion at the business, like after hours or when the business is closed. Potential criminals are unable to avoid detection from the connected security systems, and once detected, the potential criminal's movements through the business are tracked and recorded. Modern video surveillance systems can also connect to point-of-sale systems to link transactions to security footage, providing the identity of the customer and employee making the sale.

The Future of Video Surveillance

An operational video surveillance system is one of the most important components of any retail security system, but is even more crucial in high-risk businesses such as cannabis dispensaries, pawn shops, and jewelry stores. In these industries, compliance with insurance requirements or state/local regulations often includes sections about video surveillance. In the cannabis industry, for example, most states mandate access to video surveillance over a live-feed which requires the use of IP camera technology.

Even if not required for compliance purposes, every modern retailer should have an up-to-date IP camera system to improve business operations and prevent security risks to the facility. CCTV systems have not only become a relic in the security industry, but have become a risk to modern retailers. It's time to retire both the term CCTV and the use of the technology. sapphirerisk.com

As Robberies Surge, Cannabis Stores Need Security $$$
Cannabis Businesses Seek Help From City With Money For Security
Licensed cannabis businesses in Oakland are being robbed and burglarized, jeopardizing the safety of employees and prompting those businesses to think about leaving the city, according to a security consultant and a chief financial officer of a local cannabis business.
An East Oakland cannabis business owned by DNA Genetics has been broken into three to four times in the past 18 to 24 months, the owners said. On one night alone thieves came back six times.

John Walpuk, chief financial officer of DNA Genetics, thinks the city should explore a long-term, public-private partnership to protect cannabis businesses. That partnership should not necessarily involve more police or guards, who would be just part of a solution, he said.

"Guards won't solve this problem," said security consultant Chris Eggers, a former police officer for both Oakland and San Francisco. "That's just one piece of the security issue," he said. "They don't have the ability to solve this problem long-term."

Paige agrees that guards are not the answer, since most guards are not ready to get into a gunfight at a cannabis dispensary or legal grow, he said.

Guards that might be ready for a gunfight would cost upwards of $300,000 per year to hire as well, he said. Not only that, but any exchange of gunfire would put people and families in nearby homes at risk. sfgate.com

Could Big Tech Bill End 3rd-Party Sales on Amazon?
Amazon says big tech legislation 'inappropriately' targets it among retailers
Amazon lashed out at Congress and defended its business practices in a blog post tied to proposed legislation that aims to prevent abuses and reduce conflicts of interest among the largest platform companies, including Amazon, Google and Facebook.

In the post, Brian Huseman, Amazon vice president of public policy, said that if turned into law it could force the company to allow other logistics providers to service Prime orders sold by third-party sellers.

Huseman also complained that because the bill applies to those companies with market caps of more than half a trillion dollars, along with other criteria, it "inappropriately" is "targeted at only one U.S. retailer - Amazon."

Shifting attitudes around antitrust issues in both major U.S. political parties has been a headache for Amazon that has only grown with time and the company's size. The big tech legislation introduced in both the Senate and House of Representatives is just the latest potential salvo in various run-ins between the company and government.

In Huseman's post, and in past statements by the company and executives, Amazon has maintained that its market should be viewed as the same as other mass merchants and retailers. Viewed by all the categories it sells in, the company that has long aimed to be the "everything store" has a relatively small share of the total retail market, of which e-commerce is still just a fraction. That also makes it, Huseman argued, different from the other tech companies targeted in the bill.

The legislation under consideration follows a long investigation into Amazon and other dominant tech platforms, the resulting report of which accused Amazon of exploiting seller data and other abuses of its market power in online commerce.

Earlier this year, the House referred Amazon to the Department of Justice on allegations that executives lied about the company's use of seller data and "manipulation of consumers' search results" during the House investigation. Amazon said at the time there was no "factual basis" for the referral. retaildive.com

Editor's Note: This is one of several legislative measures that would impact how Amazon does business, most notably the INFORM Act, which targets the online sale of stolen and counterfeit goods. Amazon supports the U.S. House version of the bill, but opposes a broader effort championed by big-box retailers like Walmart and Home Depot, as well as RILA and the Buy Safe America Coalition.

Amazon Playing Catch Up on Online Grocery Shopping
Amazon is still coming up short with online grocery: report
The proportion of Amazon Prime members who buy groceries on Amazon is trending downward, according to surveys analyzed in a new report from Coresight Research. In 2022, 56.9% of surveyed Prime members surveyed said they bought groceries online from the retailer in the past year compared to 57.7% who said the same in 2021 and 70.6% in 2018, Coresight found.

The report, which gives an overview of U.S. grocery e-commerce, noted Amazon is the most shopped online grocery retailer. However, its customers appear to have smaller grocery baskets in comparison to other large retailers - an issue the e-tailer has grappled with for years.

"Amazon tried to crack online grocery with a purely pure-play presence, and it didn't really do it very well. ... It's realized you've got to have this multichannel proposition in grocery," John Mercer, head of global research at Coresight, said in an interview. grocerydive.com

Spokane, WA: 2 charged in $6-7 million Home Depot arson, distraction theft
Two people have been charged in a Home Depot arson and theft in Spokane that cost millions of dollars in damage. Spokane Police arrested 59-year-old Kennie Calvert and 26-year-old Sierra Fry, suspected of orchestrating a theft at a Home Depot on Newport Hwy on March 19.

Update: New York, NY: Man Arrested in Killing of NYC Restaurant Delivery Worker
A man has been arrested on charges of killing a New York City restaurant delivery worker after the owner reported a spate of harassment that began with a complaint about a condiment. Glenn Hirsch, 51, was awaiting arraignment Thursday after being arrested on murder and weapons charges in the death of Zhiwen Yan. Yan was gunned down on a Queens street April 30, while riding a scooter to make a delivery. The 45-year-old had worked for more than a decade for Great Wall, a Chinese restaurant. Owner Kai Yang told reporters at the time that he'd had trouble with a customer since November, when the patron unsuccessfully demanded a refund because he said he didn't get enough duck sauce with an order - although the sweet-and-sour condiment was free and self-serve.  usnews.com

Update: Buffalo, NY: Suspect in racist Buffalo mass shooting indicted on terrorism, murder charges
An 18-year-old man accused of killing 10 Black people and injuring three others in a racist attack at a New York grocery store was indicted by a grand jury, the Erie County District Attorney's Office announced. Payton Gendron was indicted Wednesday on charges of domestic terrorism motivated by hate and 10 counts of first-degree murder. The indictment comes more than two weeks after the May 14 shooting at Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo. Gendron is scheduled to be arraigned in an Erie County court Thursday afternoon. It's not clear if he has obtained an attorney.

He was initially charged with one count of first-degree murder after police said he opened fire in the parking lot, fatally shooting three people and wounding a store employee. The suspect, dressed in tactical gear, continued the rampage inside where he was confronted by a security guard, Aaron Salter Jr., 55. Salter, a retired Buffalo police officer, returned fire but the rounds didn't appear to penetrate the suspect's ballistic gear. Salter was fatally shot. Responding Buffalo officers engaged the suspect in the store's vestibule and took him into custody. nbcnews.com

Cunningham said the suspect fled on foot but was confronted by a witness in a pickup truck who followed him. He said the 16-year-old shot several times at the driver, and the driver returned fire.

Hartford, MI: 12-year-old fires gun, robs Gas Station
A 12-year-old boy fired a warning shot and robbed several thousand dollars from a Van Buren County gas station, but was quickly caught, police said. The Hartford Police Department received a call at about 3:52 p.m. Wednesday that there was an armed robbery at the Marathon gas station on East Main Street, said Lt. Michael Prince. The robber, a 12-year-old boy, pointed a gun at a clerk and demanded money, Prince said. When the clerk asked if the boy was serious, the boy fired a warning shot into the ceiling. The clerk then gave several thousand dollars to the boy, who put the money in a backpack and ran off, said Prince. "It flabbergasts me that a young person, broad daylight, no mask, would walk right in the business with other customers, announce an armed robbery, and when he was challenged by the clerk to fire a round into the ceiling," Prince said. But the 12-year-old did not get far. Several law enforcement agencies responded and the boy was found a block or two away in a parking lot behind some businesses, said Prince. Hartford Police Chief Tressa Beltran arrested the boy. wwmt.com

Wenatchee, WA: Police investigating Arson inside Target
Authorities are searching for a man who allegedly set fire to lawn furniture inside Target in Wenatchee. Police and firefighters were called to the store about 7 p.m. Sunday after an unidentified person lit cushions on fire in Target's outdoor section, said Sgt. Nathan Hahn with the Wenatchee Police Department. The fire was contained to the furniture, but the fire caused a "significant amount" of smoke in the store, Hahn said. The suspect, a male, told an employee of the fire as he was exiting the store. He was last seen headed east on a white bicycle, Hahn said. Investigators believe the man may have used the fire as a distraction to steal store items. The fire is of particular concern to law enforcement because of the about 70 people were in the store at the time, including customers and employees, Hahn said. yakimaherald.com

As all of us progress in our careers, we carry our past with us. And as one pointed out yesterday in response to our tip, that past is written in "indelible ink" that can't be simply erased in the process of attempting to reinventing ourselves. On the contrary, it must be recognized, accepted, and critically reviewed for any of us to successfully reinvent ourselves. Self-reflection and self-assessment is a difficult task for all of us, however, without it how are we to truly grow. Reinventing one's self is not a transaction, it's a process that continues through life and can only happen if we're honest with ourselves and truly willing to make changes. But in paraphrasing a famous 20th century philosopher, Joseph Campbell, he said we are today what our yesterdays made us, but we can be tomorrow whoever we wish to be as long as we start being it today. It may not be simple, but it does start with a first step.
