Retail Asset Protection

Our Focus

RILA recognizes that ubiquitous internet access, changing consumer values, preferences, and lifestyles, coupled with the desire for increased on-demand shopping, have led to unprecedented disruption in virtually every industry; retail perhaps more than any other. America’s retailers are transforming and so is the field of asset protection. RILA is committed to supporting the AP industry’s efforts to adapt to today’s consumer needs without compromising safety, security, and profit. Those AP teams who embrace change and grow, find new ways to be relevant in their organization, and influence decision-makers will come out on top.
