Just like about everything else in the world, the loss prevention/asset protection space has been hugely affected by the pandemic and the “traditional” threat landscape for security professionals in this area has evolved over the past year and half.

The Neiman Marcus Group Inc., needed an access management software solution that could work with the retailer's existing access control technology, while allowing it to add new technology and sites into the future.
According to a new study by Zebra Technologies, nearly two-thirds (67%) of retail shoppers are concerned with surface sanitation or social exposure in stores. To better accommodate customers, retailers must deploy technologies that aid in compliance with social distancing measures, mask mandates, and sanitation practices. Through the use of security solutions, like hands-free two-way audio, video surveillance, access control, and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven analytics, business owners can better protect employees and customers.
The Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association (RLPSA) is converting its annual in-person conference to a “To Go” (virtual) format March 2 – 4, 2021. The “To Go” format will provide the foodservice community a virtual way to obtain relevant loss prevention, safety and risk content.
