Retail Security Today
Emerging Threats: Organized Retail Crime and Fraudulent Activities
The retail industry faces an array of emerging threats from organized retail crime and various fraudulent activities.
Criminals employ various tactics to carry out their operations, that can have a significant impact on retail operations. Here are some of the tactics employed by criminals and their impact on retail operations:
- Boosting: This involves stealing goods, whether from retail stores or e-commerce sites.
- Fencing: This involves purchasing or receiving the stolen merchandise and reselling it to turn a profit.
- Ambush: This is a common form of organized retail theft where criminals take over a retail store.
- Subtle methods: These methods include tactics such as distraction theft, refund fraud, and gift card fraud.
The Role of Technology: AI, IoT, and Advanced Surveillance in Retail Security
Technology plays a pivotal role in the evolution of retail security. Artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and advanced surveillance systems have transformed the way retailers approach security. Here are some ways in which these technologies are used to enhance retail security:
- AI-powered video surveillance: Retailers are increasingly using AI-powered video analytics to detect suspicious behavior and alert security personnel to potential threats in real time. Smart algorithms analyze camera feeds for any potentially suspicious behavior that could result in shoplifting and alert a security center to a potential threat. Security professionals then have a clear understanding of what is going on across a vast area of the shopping center and the entire supply chain and improve inventory control.
- IoT-enabled sensors: IoT-enabled sensors can monitor and track merchandise, providing real-time information about product location and movement. Additionally, smart shelves equipped with weight sensors can detect unusual activity, such as someone removing items without scanning them, and send alerts to store employees. This helps retailers identify potential internal and external theft and other security issues before they happen.
- Advanced surveillance: Retailers are deploying advanced surveillance technologies, such as license plate recognition, autonomous security robots, and self-service locking cases, to combat retail crime.
