Protecting Customer Data and the Customer Service Experience
Proactive Solutions to the Challenges of Retail Cybersecurity
Thanks to innovations in online shopping and mobile payment services, as well as advancements in POS systems and IoT devices enabling greater ecommerce flexibility, the volume of retail transactions is surging at an exponential rate. IT teams must be ready to defend against a sea of threats, including brute-force attacks, third-party backdoor breaches, and vulnerabilities from payment systems, software, hardware and the cloud — while obtaining and maintaining compliance with complex regulations like PCI-DSS.

The Challenges of Retail Cybersecurity
Phishing, ransomware, advanced persistent threats and supply chain attacks continue to climb in the retail industry, while cybercriminal innovations are uncovering new ways to exploit vulnerabilities in retail POS systems, IoT devices, endpoints, and cloud and server environments.
Meanwhile, the retail industry faces additional “people” challenges, with high-turnover and a large contingent of seasonal workers, meaning proactive cybersecurity can too easily slip down the list of priorities. Retailers are turning to managed security operations solutions to provide 24×7 monitoring, detection, and response to discover and assess digital risks, and proactively harden their security posture.
