“Asset protection has evolved so much over the last several years and it’s truly never been more vital to retail’s success,” said RILA Senior Executive Vice President of Retail Operations Lisa LaBruno. “We’re thrilled to bring all the key players within the AP ecosystem—including retailers, law enforcement, solution providers, and more—together in person to discuss today’s top challenges and collaborate on real solutions that can propel our industry forward.”

The conference will offer attendees networking, benchmarking, and education around key topics in retail asset protection, including organized retail crime, workplace safety, supply chain security, diversity, equity, and inclusion, disaster relief, safe shopping protocols, and more. Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, who created one of the first-of-its-kind organized retail crime task forces in his state, will join for a conversation on how retailers can leverage partners in government to complement their own ORC strategies.
