Annual fraud study finds that 'fatalists' are the best-protected merchants
The heart of the problem is card-not-present transactions. Though such sales represent a small fraction of all sales, the role they play in fraudulent transactions “is huge,” says Jim Van Dyke, president of Javelin Strategy & Research, which conducted the survey for LexisNexis Risk Solutions. Jim Rice, director of market planning for the retail and e-commerce market at LexisNexis, says that, “For every $100 of fraud, there is $270 of fraud loss.” And the problem is growing as retailers expand into foreign markets and mobile commerce. “When you look at global and mobile, you ... take on this complexity where you can expect there to be fraud,” Van Dyke says.

Wal-Mart nixed paying Bangladesh suppliers prices high enough to cover costs of safety improvements in April 2011    At a meeting convened in 2011 to boost safety at Bangladesh garment factories, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. made a call: paying suppliers more to help them upgrade their manufacturing facilities was too costly. The comments from a Wal-Mart sourcing director appear in minutes of the meeting, which was attended by more than a dozen retailers including Gap Inc., Target Corp. and JC Penney Co. Sridevi Kalavakolanu, a Wal-Mart director of ethical sourcing and her counterpart at Gap reiterated their position in a report folded into the meeting minutes, obtained by Bloomberg News. “Specifically to the issue of any corrections on electrical and fire safety, we are talking about 4,500 factories, and in most cases very extensive and costly modifications would need to be undertaken to some factories,” they said in the document. “It is not financially feasible for the brands to make such investments.” Bangladesh’s labor law requires safety measures such as fire extinguishers and easily accessible exits at factories. Ultimately, the Bangladesh government will have to start enforcing its owns laws. (Source thecitywire.com)

US Demand for Private Security Services to Reach $63.8 Billion in 2016
Projected to rise 5.2% annually. The market will be supported by a high perceived risk of crime (from conventional violent and property crimes to white collar crimes and terrorism) and a concern that public safety officials are overburdened. The outsourcing of security activities to contracted firms, instead of relying on in-house security, will support demand. (Source yahoo.com)

The U.S. and EU - European Union in Mexican standoff when it comes to privacy protection    The European Union's top data protection watchdog expects that only a select band of U.S. IT companies will meet E.U. data protection standards for some time to come. Under the E.U. Data Protection Directive, personal data cannot be transferred out of the E.U. unless the destination country's data protection laws are deemed adequate. To date, only a tiny number of jurisdictions have been deemed adequate: Argentina, Canada, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Israel, Switzerland and Uruguay. Changes in U.S. legislation could also advance the country's cause. Hustinx noted that, with the re-election of President Obama, a U.S. Privacy Bill of Rights looked closer. (Source csoonline.com)

Supervalu's two largest banners - Albertson's and Save-A-Lot may be bought by Cerberus Capital Management    Cerberus, which owns the Albertsons LLC stores — now transitioning to Albertsons Market — was reported to have been in talks to acquire all of Supervalu, but was unable to secure financing. According to a Bloomberg News report Cerberus scaled back the scope of a potential deal to include only Albertsons stores and the Save-A-Lot limited-assortment banner. Supervalu could use the proceeds to pay down debt and focus on the disposition or ongoing operation of its other holdings. (Source supermarketnews.com)

Flint, Mich., billing security companies for false alarms
A decision by the city to begin billing security companies for false alarms—more than $31,000 in the first month alone—has the industry working with police to shift the burden to end users. According to the ordinance, no fees are assessed for the first two false alarms at a given location in any one-year period. The third false alarm is $75, with the fee rising $25 for each subsequent incident. A $35 late fee is added to any bill not paid within 30 days. “Some [cities] have tried it before,” Mowrey told Security Systems News. “There are several in California that got involved in legal action and the courts all upheld that you need to bill the end user, not the alarm company. [Flint] probably set it up not knowing the consequences and not realizing that it’s not going to help reduce alarm calls. (Source securitysystemnews.com)

Thought Challenge Review Starts Today

Director, Loss Prevention
Liz Claiborne, Inc.

as published on March 14, 2012

This past Thanksgiving weekend I had the great opportunity to get together with some old High School Classmates/Teammates that I hadn't seen for over 25 years for a College Football game in which one of our own was the Head Coach. It was great fun and sure great catching up! However, when the inevitable question came up 'So Ken, what do you do now?' I found it difficult to articulate it to these very intelligent, well educated folks in such a way that their response was not 'so you're the guy that makes sure nobody steals.' Now I KNOW I do immeasurably more than that, however if I could not articulate it effectively to these folks, some of them business owners themselves, why do I just ASSUME that my Retail partners simply KNOW I'm more than 'just the guy that makes sure nobody steals'? We all know how much value we truly add to our respective organizations. The true challenge is to find the right methods to articulate this in every way so we're not just 'the guys who make sure nobody steals.' I resolved to ensure I provided the highest level of Customer Service to my partners in data distribution ranging from Incidents to LP Audit execution to ORC trends and much more. While some of this was already part of my playbook, I truly 'raised my game.' I sought to add value to the company in any way possible with our LP Organization, including spearheading a Six Sigma project in the field. None of these things took our 'eyes off the prize' of our primary mission and they never will. LP can never be all things to all people. However, that day of tailgating and College Football opened my eyes to an assumption I will never make again; that my partners necessarily know we're more than just the 'guys who make sure people don't steal.' Because I will make sure I can articulate it in every way possible.

5 Tips for Retail Loss Prevention during this Holiday Season

 

With the holiday season upon us, we would like to see the best in people and spread the spirit of giving. However that does not mean loosening up on retail loss prevention strategies. Retailers have been doing a great job this year tightening up security and revamping their loss prevention methods. With all the data coming in at the store level, the loss prevention teams are able to catch and solve issues before they become significant.

Retail Loss Prevention: What to Review

1) Make sure your promotions are running smoothly and being rung up properly. Nothing is more challenging than keeping all the holiday promotions in check. A good method for checking the accuracy of your promotions is ringing them up ahead of time to test the system. Also take time to run through a trial with employees at a monthly training meeting, as a refresher. It is good to practice this in order to maintain uniformity across your various locations. The goal is to make sure every promotion works properly and that every employee is on the same page, regardless of position or experience level.

2) Make sure employees are trained and equipped to handle large amounts of store traffic. Give your employees the tools and resources needed to make quick fire decisions, and let them know that they have the power to make decisions on their own. Make sure that everyone is up to date on policies and they know exactly who to contact in case an issue occurs. Trained employees are more likely to do their job properly, and they are also more comfortable making decisions. Having employees that know how to handle the holiday foot traffic will greatly improve your operations.

3) With the increasing amounts of traffic it is important to be properly stocked and have displays updated in a timely manner. Make sure inventory levels are accurate, and keep a record of traffic down times. Why would you want to keep a record of your down times? Because these may be the best times to restock. You don’t want the increased foot traffic in your store to go to waste, and restocking during busy hours may do just that. When restocking is done make sure it is quick and efficient. Another thing to consider is the use of smart shelves, which let you know how fast your selves are emptying so you can make sure they are never completely bare. Remember, you want your customers to have easy access to the things they want.

4) Properly staff your stores during the holidays. This one may seem obvious, but there are some important things to remember. Increase the amount of on-duty staff, and consider scheduling a reserve of on-call staff as well. This not only acts as a precaution in case of a traffic influx, but it will also be helpful if the weather conditions suddenly get harsh. The holiday season not only brings large crowds, it brings bad weather and an increase in sick days from employees. Make sure your staff is aware of extreme weather and sick day protocol and have an open system of communication between employees and managers in case of emergency.

5) Do not spend more time monitoring your data than you have to. It is the holiday season after all, so spend your time on more important matters. Focus on being a physical presence in your stores with your team, and with your family. Let us keep an eye on the data, and who’s been naughty or nice. This way you can worry about enjoying the season and improving the success of your stores. Our big data for retail solution, Retail 20/20 gathers your siloed data and integrates it together to provide you actionable reports in real-time. Not only do we catch operational and systemic issues as they occur, we send alerts to your mobile devices so you don’t have to be tethered to your desk, because who wants to be in their office this time of year?

Seems like the longer a process goes, the harder it is for everyone to stay focused on the initial purpose and maintain the enthusiasm as when it began. Time and difficulty have their impact, but maintaining the passion and enthusiasm is up to each person. With the last step seemingly the easiest, it is usually the most critical step of all and many tend to approach it as if it is a mere formality when, in reality, that last step can be the biggest and, if you do not watch out, it could be a step right off the cliff.
