Gatekeeper Helps Retailers Crack Down on Theft
Wegmans aims to crack down on shopping-cart thefts. Here's how

Wegmans Food Markets has installed a security system to prevent shopping-cart thefts at its Auburn, Cayuga County, store, and it could be added to other locations in the 106-store chain.

Last week, the Rochester-based company
activated a Gatekeeper security system at the Auburn store, the Auburn Citizen reported Nov. 17. If someone tries to take a cart beyond the store's property, the wheels lock, Wegmans spokesperson Deana Percassi explained in an email.

Most such systems work via a buried cable around a property's perimeter. When a cart crosses over the cable,
a signal is sent to a central transmitter, locking the cart's wheels (which employees can unlock to bring the cart back into service).

"At this time, Auburn is the only store using this system, but we will continue to evaluate the potential to roll this out to other stores," Percassi said. "There are several reasons why we decided to install the system at the Auburn store, including the cost of replacing carts, as well as the cost of locating and returning missing carts to the store."

She did not say how many carts the Auburn Wegmans is losing (although the Citizen story characterized it as an ongoing problem) or what the losses amount to in dollars but noted that
cart theft is an industry-wide issue for U.S. retailers that results in annual costs of around $800 million, according to the Food Marketing Institute in Washington D.C.

Tops supermarkets, which has 160 stores - most in New York state - has used a cart-locking system at 24 of its locations for more than 20 years, spokesperson Kathleen Sautter said in an email.

She declined to say which 24 "for security reasons," but she did say the system has not prevented cart thefts entirely.

We do have people who will challenge the system by lifting and dragging the carts through the barrier," she said. "As you can imagine, having the carts stolen is a tremendous expense to our organization and frustrating for shoppers as well." democratandchronicle.com

Bay Area Retailers Flooded with Looters & Thieves

San Francisco, CA: California Nordstrom robbed by 80 looters in ski masks with crowbars and weapons
80 looters in ski masks ransacked a Nordstrom location outside of San Francisco, in a scene described by witnesses as "insane" and like something "out of a movie." "We probably saw 50 to 80 people in ski masks crowbars a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstrom's right here. And I thought they were going to start beating cars. I had to start locking doors lock the front door lock the back door," local PF Chang's manager Brett Barrette told KGO. "There was a mob of people," Barrette added to CBS SF. "The police were flying in. It was like a scene out of a movie. It was insane."

The incident unfolded before 9 p.m. on Saturday evening in Walnut Creek, which is about 25 miles outside San Francisco. A local reporter tweeted footage of the scene and said about
25 cars pulled up outside of the Nordstrom before running in, grabbing merchandise and fleeing. Dozens of police cars responded, and Walnut Creek Lt. Ryan Hibbs told KPIX 5 there were reports that the looters smashed shelves during the incident. They quickly got back into their cars while carrying bags and boxes.

It's unclear how much merchandise was stolen, NBC News reported. Walnut Creek Police Department said that
one employee was pepper sprayed and two others were kicked and punched. They were treated and released on the scene. foxnews.com

Police Warn of More Mass Robbery Attempts After Looters Ransack Walnut Creek Nordstrom
Walnut Creek Lt. Ryan Hibbs told KPIX that three people were in custody and others were being sought. "Walnut Creek Police investigators are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage to attempt to identify other suspects responsible for this brazen act," authorities said in Sunday morning news release.

S.F. police respond to reports of looting, vandalism of Union Square stores
Police officers in San Francisco responded to the city's fashionable Union Square Friday evening following reports of looting and vandalism at retail stores there, according to a police spokesperson.

San Francisco Police Ofc. Robert Rueca said late Friday evening that the report came in at approximately 8:10 p.m. and officers arrived on scene to a retail store in Union Square in which they observed several suspects involved in criminal acts.

Reports say the Louis Vuitton fashion store on Geary Street was a major target. Multiple videos posted on social media showed the store being robbed.

Police have arrested multiple suspects, Rueca added, continuing that officers are responding to reports of other retail establishments where vandalism has occurred Friday evening. Additional officers are responding to the Union Square area. mercurynews.com

Hayward, CA: Smash-and-Grab Thieves Target Hayward Mall; Lululemon Store Robbed in San Jose's Santana Row
Looters targeting Bay Area businesses struck again Sunday evening, with smash-and-grab thieves hitting the Southland Mall in Hayward and suspects taking merchandise from a Lululemon store in San Jose. Hayward police told KPIX they responded around 5:30 p.m. Sunday to multiple calls from stores in Southland Mall. Witnesses said a large mob of people caused a huge disturbance inside the mall, with some briefly taking over a jewelry store. Witnesses described some 40 to 50 looters wielding hammers and other tools looted Sam's Jewelers, breaking glass cases and quickly fleeing. The Macy's store was also ransacked.

In video taken during the robbery, you can hear workers inside Sam's Jewelers screaming in fear. Witnesses say this was the tail end of a much scarier and bigger scene. "I would say at least 30 to 40 [people] from what I saw," said another witness, who declined to identify themselves. "But then after the main group of kids rushed out,
we saw 15 to 20 scattering, some even came back in." KPIX spoke with two women who work near Sam's Jewelers. They and other mall workers said some kids ran into other stores and left with shoes and clothing. sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com

LA's Progressive DA Making the News - Progressives Typically Don't Prosecute Petty Theft Cases
'He's Remaking Criminal Justice in L.A. But How Far Is Too Far?'

To keep people out of prison, George Gascón is risking everything: rising violent crime, a staff rebellion and the votes that made him district attorney.

Last December, when George Gascón took over the largest local prosecutor's office in the country, he made a complete break from the past. His inaugural speech as district attorney of Los Angeles County at once thrilled progressive activists and alienated many of the lawyers sizing up their new boss. Standing alone at a lectern as a pandemic precaution, Gascón put his hands to his forehead and half-bowed, yogi-style, to thank the judge who swore him in over a video connection.

Gascón leveled an all-out attack on the status quo. The new district attorney described being arrested as "traumatic and dehumanizing," lifting his hands for emphasis. "Our rush to incarcerate generations of kids of color," he said, has torn apart "the social fabric of our communities." Signaling that the police should expect new scrutiny, Gascón promised to review fatal shootings in the county by officers, going back to 2012.

He turned the argument for the "tough-on-crime approach" of other local law-enforcement leaders on its head, blaming their strategy for an eight-year rise in violent crime. He accused his opponents of making "unfounded and self-serving claims" about how more punishment increases public safety. "The status quo hasn't made us safer," he said, jabbing his fingers into the air. Continue Reading

Democrats Turn a Blind Eye to Connecticut's Juvenile Crime Wave

The state desperately needs a special session of the Legislature to address it, but Gov. Lamont refuses.

A juvenile crime wave is breaking across Connecticut. Tragically, children have been both victims and perpetrators.

Residents, chiefs of police, municipal leaders and community activists across the state are begging Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont to address the problem by calling the Democrat-dominated Legislature into special session. To date, these requests have been ignored, with deadly results.

Hartford has seen more than 30 homicides this year, making 2020 one of the deadliest years on record in Connecticut's capital city. In April a 3-year-old boy was shot and killed in a car by offenders who were themselves only 16 and 19. In neighboring New Britain, a 17-year-old with 13 prior arrests stole a car and struck and killed a jogger in June. In a Danbury mall in August, a 14-year-old in a dispute with other teens shot an innocent bystander-a 15-year-old girl.

Bridgeport, the state's largest city, has seen more than 10,000 incidents of shots fired so far this year, twice the number for all of 2020. Gun violence is "everywhere" in Connecticut, a neighbor of the victims told the Connecticut Post.

Connecticut's Democratic politicians consistently try to evade responsibility for the violence by pointing to national trends. They ignore the residents, law-enforcement officials and even the parents of juvenile offenders who are begging them to do something to help end the violence. After recent shootings that involved 10- and 14-year-old boys, Waterbury police chief Fernando Spagnolo urged elected leaders to take action: "We need some help from the legislators."

Retail Abuse & Violence Against Shopworkers in the UK

Trade Associations & Retail Unions Fight for New Criminal Charges

UK: Retail unhappy as efforts to make attacking shopworkers a specific offence are rebuffed
Retailer organizations have united in disappointment at the government's continued unwillingness to introduce specific legal protection for shopworkers who are assaulted.

Although some peers in the House of Lords yesterday spoke in favour of the measures, two proposed amendments to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill were withdrawn.

The government argues that a wide range of potential offences already exist for assaults on shopworkers, including common assault, so there is no need for a specific offence of assaulting a shopworker.

James Lowman, chief executive of the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS), said: "We are extremely disappointed that the government has once again failed to take urgent action to protect colleagues working in our sector.

Another retail body, the NFRN, agreed and added that it would continue to press for greater protection for shopworkers.

Shahid Razzaq, chairman of its political engagement committee, said: "We will continue to lobby the government, police chiefs and police and crime commissioners for greater legal protection for everyone who works in retail." Shopworkers union Usdaw also pledged to continue pressing for legislative change and a simple standalone offence for assaulting a retail worker. talkingretail.com

Last week in the UK - Retail's Biggest Trade Union - USDAW
'Respect for Shopworkers Week' & 'The Freedom From Fear Campaign'

About Freedom From Fear: Usdaw's 'Freedom From Fear Campaign' works to prevent violence, threats and abuse against workers. We do this by engaging the public, shopworkers and the Government.

Results of last year's Usdaw's Freedom From Fear Survey show that 79% of shopworkers said that abuse was worse last year. 88% experienced verbal abuse, 60% were threatened by a customer and 9% were assaulted.

Usdaw survey reveals that nearly half of shopworkers are not confident that reporting abuse will make a difference usdaw.org.uk

Retail trade union Usdaw has today launched shocking statistics from their annual survey during the annual Respect for Shopworkers Week, 15-21 November. Interim results from nearly 3,500 retail staff show that in the last twelve months:

89% have experienced verbal abuse.
64% were threatened by a customer.
11% were assaulted.
46% said they were not confident that reporting abuse, threats and violence will make a difference.
7% of those who had been assaulted did not report the incident.

The annual Respect for Shopworkers Week runs from 15-21 November this year. During the campaign week Usdaw reps, activists and officials are raising awareness of the year-round Freedom from Fear Campaign, talking to the public at street stalls and in shops to promote a message of 'respect for shopworkers'.

Usdaw is campaigning for a new protection of workers law, like the ground-breaking legislation that came into force in Scotland in August this year. The union continues to call on the Government to extend those protections to shopworkers across the rest of the UK, which is supported by leading voices across the retail sector. pressreleasespoint.com

USDAW Survey: Survey of violence and abuse against retail staff

Rittenhouse Verdict Sparks Nationwide Unrest

NYC - Kenosha - Portland - Los Angeles - Chicago
Protests & riots spring up in NYC, other cities in response to Rittenhouse verdict
Protests sprang up in New York and other cities across the country Friday night in response to Kyle Rittenhouse's acquittal, resulting in at least five arrests and some property damage in Queens, according to the NYPD.

About 300 protesters also gathered outside Brooklyn's Barclays Center, where the Nets played the Orlando Magic Friday night, decrying the not-guilty verdict as a shameful racial double standard in the justice system.

Meanwhile, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, dozens of protesters congregated outside of the courthouse where Rittenhouse had been acquitted, for hours after the decision was announced.

A large-scale protest never materialized, and the small group was largely peaceful. One woman was arrested for drawing "Judge Schroeder must go" on the courthouse walls and steps in chalk, referring to Bruce Schroeder, the judge in the Rittenhouse trial, according to local reports.

Tensions escalated dramatically in Portland, Oregon where a riot was declared after a group of about 200 protesters began hurling objects at police officers and damaging city buildings, cops said.

Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell told KOIN that it is "reasonable to expect there will be some type of reaction to the verdict."

In Los Angeles, about 20 people gathered Saturday at Pan Pacific Park, marching peacefully along sidewalks and through the bustling Grove shopping center carrying signs reading "Kyle Rittenhouse and the Whole Damn System Is Guilty" and urging shoppers to join them.

Other small protests took place in Chicago, where people gathered on the city's streets to protest the verdict for a 90 minute peaceful march, local media reported. The Chicago Police Department had canceled many officers' days off in anticipation of any unrest in response to the verdict, according to WGN.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot released a statement in response to Friday's verdict in which she urged residents to "respect the jury's decision," while also criticizing Rittenhouse's actions. nypost.com  latimes.com

Gun store promotes 'not guilty' sale after Rittenhouse acquittal
A Texas gun store and shooting range is facing criticism following a text message to customers announcing a "not guilty" sale after Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted.

The Saddle River Range sent a text to customers early Saturday morning saying the large holiday sale would start later that day and last until Thanksgiving. The sale includes deals on firearms, optics, bags and gun parts, among other items.

The decision to promote the sale using an image of Rittenhouse was met with mixed emotions. The 18-year-old was acquitted Friday on charges stemming from killing two men and wounding another during the unrest that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by a white police officer last year. hawaiinewsnow.com

COVID Cases Tick Back Up Ahead of Holidays

More COVID Deaths in 2021 Than 2020
U.S. Covid-19 Deaths in 2021 Surpass 2020's
The number of U.S. Covid-19 deaths recorded in 2021 has surpassed the toll in 2020, according to federal data and Johns Hopkins University, demonstrating the virus's persistent menace.

The total number of reported deaths linked to the disease topped 770,800 on Saturday, Johns Hopkins data show. This puts the pandemic-long total at more than twice the 385,343 Covid-19 deaths recorded last year, according to the most recent death-certificate data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The spread of the highly contagious Delta variant and low vaccination rates in some communities were important factors, infectious-disease experts said. The milestone comes as Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations move higher again in places such as New England and the upper Midwest, with the seven-day average for new cases recently closer to 90,000 a day after it neared 70,000 last month.

Covid-19 has proven to be an enduring threat even in some of the most vaccinated places, many of which are confronting outbreaks again now, as the world prepares to live with and manage the disease for the long term. In Europe, parts of Austria, Germany and the Netherlands have imposed new restrictions in recent days after Covid-19 cases rose and hospitals came under strain. wsj.com

"We're definitely headed into our next surge"
COVID-19 cases rise with Thanksgiving gatherings on the way
COVID-19 cases are climbing nationally as the U.S. barrels into its second holiday season during the pandemic, with most families planning this year to gather for Thanksgiving.
The U.S. is in better shape than at this point last year, when authorities confirmed well over 160,000 COVID-19 cases every day.

The daily average of new cases stands below 100,000 and almost 200 million Americans are fully vaccinated. They can "feel good about enjoying a typical" holiday season, top infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci said this week.

But with millions still unvaccinated and cases rising, experts are urging Americans, particularly the unvaccinated, partially vaccinated and vulnerable, to exercise caution when gathering with others. thehill.com

24 states have seen 100 percent increases in daily COVID cases over the last week
These states include Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire and Alaska.

Twenty-two other states are also reporting increases in COVID-19 cases, though some at much smaller rates. The CDC wrote on Twitter Friday morning that the "#COVID19 level of community transmission in the U.S. remains high & cases are increasing." newsweek.com

Full Speed Ahead on Vaccine Mandate?
Employers Told to Follow ETS Despite Federal Appeals Court Injunction

Lawsuit challenges have been gathered together in one appeals court.

President Biden's workplace vaccination requirement for large employers may be blocked by a preliminary injunction issued by a federal appeals court, but that hasn't stopped his administration from insisting that employers continue to follow the new rule.

Earlier this month, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring that employers with 100 or more employees must have all of their workers vaccinated against COVID-19 no later than Jan. 4, 2022. The next day, the Fifth Circuit court of appeals issued a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of the ETS while challenges to it are heard in the federal court system.

Other private organizations that have embraced the OSHA ETS mandate also told employers they should continue to implement the mandate in spite of the court injunction, including the American Medical Association and U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Opponents of the mandate include the National Retail Federation, American Trucking Associations and the National Federation of Independent Business, as well as the attorneys general of at least 26 states. Some labor unions wish to see the ETS expanded to include employers of 99 or fewer employees. ehstoday.com

Florida Putting a Halt to Vaccine Mandates
DeSantis bill signed in Brandon forces companies to slam brakes on COVID vaccine mandates

Florida lawyer representing health care workers called the vaccine guidelines a 'temporary victory'

Recent legislation signed into law by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is forcing companies to slam the brakes on coronavirus vaccine mandates for employees.

DeSantis signed multiple bills regarding vaccine mandates on Thursday during Florida's special legislative session. Under one of the bills, private employers must give workers the option of opting out of the vaccine mandate, including medical and religious exemptions.

"I told Floridians that we would protect their jobs, and today we made that the law," DeSantis said in a press release last week. "Nobody should lose their job due to heavy-handed COVID mandates, and we had a responsibility to protect the livelihoods of the people of Florida. I'm thankful to the Florida Legislature for joining me in standing up for freedom." foxnews.com

Lockdowns return to Europe
Facing a rapid rise in Covid-19 cases, Austria will restrict most people to their homes for up to 20 days starting Monday, while parts of Germany will impose similar measures this week. Rules meant to tame the virus's latest surge sparked protests in several European cities over the weekend.

On Saturday in Austria and Italy, people upset with renewed constraints marched to show their opposition. More protests were planned elsewhere in Europe.

Protests in Rotterdam against new Dutch Covid-19 restrictions turned violent Friday night, and police said they arrested 51 people, fired warning shots and used water cannons to control rioters who pelted officers with rocks, burned cars and set off powerful fireworks. wsj.com

More Restrictions in Europe Leads to Unrest & Violence
Covid restriction protests in European cities turn violent
Thousands of demonstrators poured onto the streets of European capitals at the weekend as governments stepped up restrictions to combat the latest Covid wave sweeping the continent.

Police in Brussels fired water cannon and tear gas after being pelted with projectiles as 35,000 protesters challenged Belgium's beefed up anti-Covid measures and vaccination campaign.

Marching behind a banner stating "Together for Freedom", the crowd included far right activists, LGBT+ rights campaigners and people carrying the Flemish flag.

In the Netherlands, police made 19 arrests after riots in The Hague on Saturday night when officers charged protesters who set fire to bicycles. The Dutch authorities have imposed a three-week partial lockdown to curb cases, introduced a vaccine passport and banned New Year's Eve fireworks. thetimes.co.uk

RILA & Buy Safe's ORC Study

75% of ORC Subjects Physically Assaulted an Associate - 41% Used a Weapon
Homeland Security Joins Retailers in Expressing Concern over ORC

Washington, DC - A study released yesterday by the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) and the Buy Safe America Coalition sounds the alarm on the increasingly brazen and violent theft occurring in retail stores across the nation. Following publication, Department of Homeland Security officials affirmed the dangers of organized retail crime, linking criminal syndicates to more dangerous activities impacting local communities.

"Organized retail crime is leading to more brazen and more violent attacks in retail stores throughout the country. Many of the criminal rings orchestrating these thefts are also involved in other serious criminal activity such as human trafficking, narcotics trafficking, weapon trafficking, and more. Tackling this growing threat is important to the safety of store employees, customers, and communities across the country," said Steve Francis, Executive Associate Director with Homeland Security Investigations.

Among the study's findings:

As much as $68.9 billion worth of products were stolen from retailers in 2019 (pre-COVID).
Nearly 67% of asset protection managers at leading retailers surveyed report a moderate to considerable increase in organized retail crime, while 80% believe it will only get worse in the future.

86.2% of retailers surveyed said a ORC subject has verbally threatened an associate; 75.9% said an ORC subject has physically assaulted an associate, 41% said an ORC subject has used a weapon to harm an associate

Just Days Before Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - Copycat Fears?
5 killed and 40 injured, including kids, when SUV plows into Wisconsin Christmas parade - terror not ruled out
A driver blew past police barricades and plowed into a group of people marching in a Christmas parade in Wisconsin on Sunday, killing five people and injuring dozens of others, including children, officials said.

The carnage unfolded at the annual celebration in the small city of Waukesha shortly after 4:40 p.m. local time and left more than 40 people injured, city officials said. At least 12 of the victims are children.

A person of interest was in custody and police have not ruled out terrorism as a motive, according to Police Chief Daniel Thompson. It's also possible the driver was fleeing another crime scene.

"A parade is a celebration for our community. Today our community faced horror and tragedy in what should have been a community celebration," the mayor said.

Witnesses had reported that shots were fired by the driver, but police later clarified that an officer discharged their weapon at the vehicle. nypost.com

Editor's Note: While there is no specific retail connection to this tragedy, it's noteworthy given the proximity of the incident to this week's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Those in charge of the safety and security of the annual Macy's event - and similar events across the country - will most certainly be doubling down their efforts to avoid any potential copycat incidents.

Instacart Shopper Safety Alert
Instacart adds safety enhancements for its shoppers

E-grocer will alert its shopper community of local critical incidents, improve emergency calling function

Online grocery platform Instacart this week introduced new safety features to support its shopper community, including Shopper Safety Alert technology that will notify shoppers of localized critical incidents as soon as they occur, helping keep shoppers safe on the platform. In addition, Instacart is enhancing its emergency calling functionality in the Shopper app, as well as introducing new resources to help the community shop safely.

Instacart's Shopper Safety Alert technology will give shoppers near real-time alerts when a critical incident occurs nearby. Developed in partnership with samdesk, a global disruption monitoring platform, this feature leverages multiple feeds, including law enforcement, social media, local news and other channels to generate automated alerts when there is a critical event. Shoppers within the area of an incident will immediately see the alert in the Shopper app to assess the situation and avoid the area. If a shopper is in the middle of an order, the app will automatically pause the order to prevent the shopper from entering the incident area. Instacart will also assess these situations in real time and may pause operations entirely in specific stores or regions if they pose a risk to the broader shopper community.

"We want Instacart to be a place where shoppers can earn safely, and we believe technology allows us to support shoppers in entirely new ways," said Daniel Danker, vice president of shopper & fulfillment at San Francisco-based Instacart. "Our new Shopper Safety Alerts will help protect shoppers in the unlikely event that they face an unexpected crisis, giving them near real-time information to avoid areas that may be unsafe. This update is part of our broader commitment to shopper safety, and we look forward to continuing our efforts to help shoppers earn safely." supermarketnews.com

LPRC Anti-Sweep Offender Feedback Survey: Tally Smart Shelf

Tally's smart-sensing pad perceived by offenders as 'difficult to defeat'
and a 'highly effective crime prevention technology'

The Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) conducted a series of in-person survey interviews in the Gainesville, Florida Innovation Lab in order to better understand the impact of an anti-sweep technology on retail offenders: The Tally Smart Shelf. This research was conducted with several high-loss and ORC (organized retail crime) vulnerable items: Tide detergent, Similac infant formula, and Red Bull energy drinks. The LPRC collected data from 10 active shoplifting offenders. This report details the results of these surveys.

Summary of Key Findings - 'See It, Get It, Fear It'

While only 20% of offenders (2 people) were aware of the Smart Shelf before being prompted, 100% were deterred by it to some degree, with 50% reporting that they'd steal fewer items, and 50% reporting that they'd avoid theft from the device altogether (see Table 1).

The Tally Smart Shelf

The Tally Smart Shelf is a smart-sensing pad that communicates with the Tally platform to give instant alerts as product is removed from the shelves. There are three main benefits as advertised by Tally Retail Solutions:

  • The Smart Shelf is designed to act as a deterrent to offenders without restricting access to honest customers. If too much product is taken at one time, a series of customizable alerts can triggered, such as audible store pages, emails, and text messages. The Smart Shelf also takes live video of the incident for review.

  • The Smart Shelf can also help track inventory and give alerts when products are running low, out-of-stock, or when items need to be shifted forward on the shelves.

  • Since there are no additional tags or fixtures on the products themselves, the Smart Shelf does not add additional work to store employees. Once installed, the Tally software detects the presence of an item and gives automatic, real-time alerts.

Gaining Supply Chain Access Through Social Engineering
Last time you audited the supply chain cybersecurity practices?

With Supply Chain Logjams Comes Increased Cyber Security Risk

It isn't just their own companies that logistics leaders need to think about. Industry partners can also unintentionally open others up to security failures.

main risk companies face is social engineering. One example is phishing, or elaborate attacks impersonating a person in an organization in order to gain access to that organization."

Supply chains are inherently collaborative. Creating products - and moving them from one place to another - is a
multi-tiered process managed by a network of different partners. While these partnerships often pave the way for growth and innovation, they can also pose a unique security risk. If one company in the chain has iron-clad security protocols, that company can still be left vulnerable by security breaches involving their partners.

"Your security is as strong as your weakest link," Luu said. "It is important to ask questions about your partners' security measures. A lot of security has to do with being aware of both your practices and your partners practices."

Beyond planning and communication, companies can also prevent these social engineering attacks by tightening up access to various types of information. That means allowing access to only people who actually need it on a day-to-day basis. According to Luu, people who have access to unfamiliar data tend to be the first - and easiest - targets of these types of attacks. freightwaves.com

The latest example of that is a group that researchers have dubbed Void Balaur that has been breaking into the mailboxes, social media accounts and telecommunication records of human rights activists, politicians, business executives and other high-profile individuals across a dozen countries.

group calls itself Rockethack and advertises its services on Russian-language underground forums where it is highly respected for delivering on its promises to customers and the quality of the extracted information, researchers from security firm Trend Micro said in a recent report analyzing the group's activities. The firm managed to identify over 3,500 victims spanning over a dozen countries and many industry sectors. The group has been advertising its services since at least 2017, but evidence suggests its activities might go as far back as 2015.

"Rockethack has a massive associated intrusion set with thousands of indicators, which we are tracking under the name Void Balaur," the Trend Micro researchers said. csoonline.com

Just 3% of Consumers Enact Credit Freeze After Data Breach
What's stopping consumers from acting on a data breach notice?
three percent of consumers implemented a credit freeze after receiving a data breach notice, 11 percent enrolled in credit/data monitoring, and only 22 percent changed all of their account passwords, a recent survey by DIG.Works on behalf of the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) has shown.

48 percent of the respondents only changed the password on the breached account, and
16 percent took no action at all.

Those that didn't act after receiving a breach notice offered a variety of reasons - from "My data is already out there" to being unsure of what to do.

The ITRC believes that organizations should review how they
notify consumers of data breaches with the goal of reducing the level of inaction and improving the rates of credit freeze adoption. helpnetsecurity.com

Why small businesses should consider Microsoft Defender for Business
At its recent Ignite conference, Microsoft announced a new product targeted to businesses with less than 300 users or seats called Microsoft Defender for Business. Any small businesses that does not have an automated way to investigate intrusions and other security issues, or any sort of endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology in place should evaluate it. So should managed service providers that support small business or have connections to a small business that supplies to your firm.

Defender for Business ensures that you can monitor and control the native antivirus protection and pull in cloud protections and detections as Microsoft receives the security information from across its cloud properties. For small businesses that have not invested in EDR, the console will point out anomalies and identify when unusual events have occurred. The timeline functionality allows you to review processes on systems to determine what has occurred on systems and keeps a cloud forensic version of the workstation processes so that you can review it later. csoonline.com

It's All Cyber: Crime in a High Tech World

"There is no element of criminality anymore that isn't cybercrime," said Jeremy Sheridan, assistant director of the Secret Service Office of Investigations.

"Whether it's the opportunity to commit the crime, the methods to execute it, the means to profit from it, it all involves some element of cyber."

You're being a bit "Traumatic"

Although there may be common basic principles applied to every interview, the approach itself is not a one-size-fits-all. The level of evidence, type of case and purpose of the conversation may dictate which investigative approach is used by the interviewer. Equally as important is the characteristics of the subject being interviewed, taking into consideration their age, mental state, role in the investigation and any vulnerabilities they may have. One area of concern when strategizing an interview or assessing a subject's statements is their experience or exposure to trauma. When most people think of defining "trauma" we often resort to thoughts of military experience, unexpected loss or illness, and victims of violent crime. Truth be told, trauma comes in all shapes and sizes and can be prevalent even with employees in the private sector. Arguing with a customer about wearing their mask, a confrontation with a shoplifter, witnessing workplace violence or being victimized of sexual harassment or discrimination may all be traumatic experiences based on the person.

178% Spike in Fake Shopping Sites
Rise in online scams is affecting holiday shoppers - Here's how to stay safe
The FOX 8 I-Team has uncovered a new warning for anyone doing any shopping online, especially for the holidays. We've learned what con artists are doing like never before to rip you off. Research by the cyber security firm Check Point found a
178% increase in fake shopping sites set up by hackers and scammers.

"Fake shopping is about you being, unfortunately, tricked," said Brian Linder from Check Point.

Linder said con artists set up computer links that look like they're taking you to a site offering incredible deals on really popular stuff. However, it's all a sham to steal from you. "
They're going to steal your credit card information, or your personally identifiable data, your name, your address," Linder said.

"The bad actors know that people fall for these things. They put in resources to
create more of these fake websites. Everyone is in a rush, these days, to get things done," Linder said.

So, how can you protect yourself? Don't just click on what comes in your email. At first glance, it might look like a link to a legitimate business or shopping site, but it might be off just enough to take you to the fake site.
Instead, go online and go directly to the actual website yourself.

Taylor gave some advice we've heard so many times before that may be more important than ever.

"The number one lesson that I learned is, i
f it looks too good to be true, nine times out of ten, it is too good to be true," she said.

Put another way, the Better Business Bureau tells us online buying
scams now make up more than a third of all scams reported.

Check Point says these
fake and "malicious" websites can be hard to investigate, since they are often up only for a short time. Then, they get taken down only to be replaced by new ones. fox8.com

California: Thieves Take Everything From Jewelry Store in Smash-and-Grab Robbery: JSA reports that the crime is part of a pattern
A group of nine people armed with hammers robbed a California jewelry store, police say. The thieves smashed display cases at the store inside the Sun Valley Mall and took jewelry. The crime took place at about 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 15. "Employees tried to intervene and were kept back by the hammer wielding criminals," the Concord Police Department stated on Facebook. "The suspects got away before police arrived. Some customers inside the mall called reporting what they thought were gunshots heard, but in actuality, they heard the sounds of the hammers breaking glass. No shots were fired." The suspects "wiped out the inventory" of the store, SFGATE reports.

The Jewelers' Security Alliance reports that there has been "a pattern of smash and grab robberies at California malls being carried out by between 3 to 7 suspects." Other incidents occurred in Milpitas on May 20, Hayward on May 21, Daly City on Sept. 15 and San Jose on Oct. 28 and 29. instoremag.com

Business Email Compromise Fraud Ring Leader Gets 13 Yrs Fed Prison
Georgia man who laundered millions from online frauds sentenced to 13 years in federal prison
Nnamdi Marcellus MgBodile has been sentenced to prison for bank fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit bank fraud after being convicted at trial. For years,
MgBodile opened and directed others to open fraudulent business bank accounts that received millions of dollars from various online frauds. He and others then laundered these funds to other accounts, including dozens of accounts overseas.

"MgBodile and his co-conspirators are representative of the transnational fraudsters who have had had a devastating impact on U.S. residents and businesses," said U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine. "The groups perpetrating these romance scams and
business email compromise frauds target their victims indiscriminately and have caused billions of dollars of losses for victims in recent years."

Nnamdi Marcellus MgBodile opened and directed others to open fraudulent bank accounts in Georgia, New York, and California for sham companies that did not have physical premises, earn legitimate income, or pay wages to employees.
MgBodile recruited at least five other individuals to open the fraudulent business bank accounts, including a former bank employee who he bribed to continue to open accounts even after others have been closed for fraud.

MgBodile used these fraudulent accounts to launder the proceeds of various fraudulent schemes, including a romance scam that defrauded a Virginia woman out of more than $5 million, and business email compromise ("BEC") scams in which MgBodile and others attempted to defraud a Georgia company of nearly
$350,000, and an Alabama company of more than $800,000. justice.gov

Partnerships and collaboration go well beyond the typical definition and one of the most important lessons in your career is realizing that your team includes the solution providers that deliver the tools, technology and resources that help make you successful.

One of the common mistakes I've seen over the years is not totally appreciating the role these executives and companies play in the overall success of a retailer's program. So much so that without them the program would fail.

For decades the "Us Them" mentality prevailed as one of the biggest obstacles to growth and development, when in fact these executives hold the keys to tomorrow's success.

And yes, many LP execs have transitioned to the 'Dark Side' and all of them quickly find out the true definition of rejection and friendship, but the good ones can be one of your most critical assets.

So make sure your entire team recognizes it, appreciates them, and is exhaustive in finding the best ones regardless of yesterday, because they have the answer to tomorrow's challenges.
