News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

U.S. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan spoke to dozens of federal, state and local law enforcement officials based in South Florida to kick off National Cyber Security Awareness Month - impacting retailers as well. The region has earned the distinction of being a motherboard of sorts in electronic crimes, leading the nation in identity thefts and ranking high on other forms of cyber crimes such as child pornography and credit- and debit-card information thefts. The nationwide campaign, organized by the Department of Homeland Security, is designed to teach the public and private companies about the rapidly increasing number of cyber-related crimes. "Sophisticated cyber-criminals pose a great threat to our economy and national security," Sullivan told the crowd. "They have exploited the vulnerability in cyberspace to steal money and information." South Florida has experienced a dramatic jump in reported identity theft incidents to the Federal Trade Commission — from 8,317 cases in 2007 to 17,668 in 2011. In addition to identity theft, South Florida has also made headlines for recent spikes in credit- and debit-card information theft through the use of illegal devices known as skimmers.

On a conference call Wednesday, leaders of Our Wal-Mart, the National Consumers League and other labor groups said they will join Wal-Mart workers outside stores on Black Friday if their demands are not met. NOW president Terry O'Neill said her organization would join in the action on Black Friday, it was reported in the Guardian.

Vice President, Loss Prevention & Legal Affairs, RILA


It was great to read in yesterday’s D&D about Bill Titus and his team visiting with college freshman at Northern Michigan University. RILA and our LP Steering Committee share Bill’s passion for introducing undergraduates to a career in retail loss prevention. It’s that same passion that – in part – led to RILA launching the college student program two years ago.

One primary objective of RILA’s Student Program is to expose top collegiate talent to the loss prevention industry. We want to get the word out that a career in retail LP can serve as a framework for a bright future for a young person driven to success. That’s the "what’s in it for them" component to the program.

There’s also a "what’s in it for me" component to the program. Through their participation as student mentors, retailers and industry solution providers are exposed to top collegiate talent. It serves as a recruiting tool for retailers looking for emerging talent and tomorrow’s leaders. Participating companies are optimistic that their next top recruit may come out of the RILA Student Program!

Despite the program’s infancy, we are accomplishing our objectives. After last year’s conference, nearly all of the participating students had completed their LPQ and/or landed a position with a retailer. Several of the students were enrolled at Northern Michigan University, where Bill and his team recently visited.

This year, we’ve expanded the student pool to include master’s level students working toward an advanced degree in Finance. This is part of RILA’s and the steering committee’s objective to attract individuals having varied skills sets into the industry. That way, we can develop individuals into LP professionals who possess a broad based business acumen and, in doing so, help move the industry forward.

This year’s student mentors include 7-Eleven, Abercrombie & Fitch, Big Lots, Cabela’s, jcpenney, Lowe’s, The Home Depot, Walmart, Axis Communications, Hart Systems, Loss Prevention Foundation and Verisk Crime Analytics. Participating students are assigned projects that align with key priorities/challenges facing retail AP executives. For several months leading up to the 2013 RAP Conference, students will conduct interviews, complete research, walk retail locations and utilize other methodologies to meet the project deliverables, all with guidance from their mentors. The project culminates in a presentation by the students during a breakout session at RAP 2013. In addition to sharing their project and showcasing their presentation skills, the students have an unprecedented opportunity to network with hundreds of industry leaders all under one roof and - in some cases – impress AP executives who make hiring decisions.

It’s a win-win for everyone!

Editorial Comments:

Would we get a passing grade as an industry for our college recruiting programs? Probably not! The college recruiting model has never been one that the LP industry has taken seriously or really gotten involved with. Quite frankly most leave it to the HR departments to do. It's great to see Bill Titus, VP LP Sears HC; Northern Michigan University; and RILA actively involved and if there's any other successful programs out there, we at the Daily would enjoy being able to share those stories with the industry as well. Because our industry is facing a significant problem with a huge decrease in the population group of 18 to 25 year olds that normally populate the entry level positions in retail. This problem, which has been forecasted for quite some time, is now a reality, as evidenced in the recent survey that pointed out the decreasing numbers in applicants for this year's seasonal help in the retail industry. This problem is not going away and it will get worse. The issue is on an individual basis, that each LP executive take it upon themselves to get involved in their local college programs and actively recruit young college students to our industry. It's a subject we all talk about and hear about at the conferences but at the end of the day are we doing anything about it? Are you involved?
