What attendees say about NRF PROTECT

Each year NRF PROTECT convenes the industry to unite a variety of roles dedicated to one mission: protecting your people, organization, assets and customers from security threats. 

Hear firsthand why leaders in loss prevention, asset protection, cybersecurity, digital fraud and enterprise risk management attend the event, with a goal of strengthening their organization's offense and defense against multifaceted retail threats.

NRF PROTECT is a great place for us to network. You get to see everyone from the industry and we all cross paths. We learn a lot from one another and we're able to support each other so that we can be better as a whole.
Laura Morris, Regional Loss Prevention Manager, Chico’s FAS Inc.
I think it's one of those conferences you must attend where you could interact with other security professionals and share knowledge about what's going on with additional firepower from other companies that really make your job a little bit easier.
Tae Kim, Senior Manager, Threat Management, Albertsons Companies
You’ve got workplace violence, you've got ORC, cybersecurity fraud, and I think there's a lot of commonalities between the retailers here. NRF PROTECT is a good opportunity for everyone to have a platform and have those discussions.
Ed Turner, Senior Manager, Protection, Workplace Violence & Fraud, Staples Stores
I believe in the educational opportunities and the collaborative opportunities that we get with our vendor base and with our asset protection folks in our industry to share ideas, ask questions and just be with our community.
Scott McBride, Chief Global Asset Protection Office & CSO, American Eagle Outfitters Inc.
The one thing that I really get out of NRF PROTECT is the ability to ask people questions about what they've done, and the experiences they've had, and what's worked and what hasn't worked.
Diane Brown, VP, IT Risk Management, Ulta Beauty
What you need to do is build a collaborative environment within your company to get things prioritized properly in order to get solutions deployed.
Scott Draher, Vice President, Asset Protection & Safety, Lowe's Companies Inc.
The value of NRF PROTECT for us is to be able to benchmark with peers and understand some of the challenges that we're having out there in asset protection. We're really excited this year to expand our conversation into government affairs.
Liz Burkholder, Director, Investigations, AP Operations & Global Security, J.C. Penney
10, 15, 20 years ago we treated physical and cybersecurity very differently and as two separate entities. As we look over the last 10 years, the overlapping in that Venn diagram is getting higher and higher.
Nitin Natarajan, Deputy Director, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), US DHS
I think a key part of our job is to stay relevant and NRF PROTECT is the place to do that.
Malcom Gaspard, Territory Vice President, Loss Prevention Northeast/Southeast, Kohl’s
