Retail

Retailers are facing a new, digital era as the forces of social media, omni-channel shopping and a wave of emerging payment technologies are transforming the industry

Against this rapidly evolving digital retail landscape, retailers find themselves to be poorly defended targets of escalating and increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.

There are also retail compliance issues to contend with. Most retailers are subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and many also must abide by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Third-party connections are a big concern for retailers. It’s often easier to hack the companies that retailers do business with and to use their network access to break into the retailers’ networks.

Complying with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirements may seem trying and expensive, but when you know exactly what you’re doing, you can secure your network and easily meet PCI compliance standards. Choose from a variety of solutions to help you meet and attain compliance.

Retail IT Security has often been reactive and underfunded; however, gaps in security are now becoming a critical issue. From a technology perspective, retailers have historically taken a checkbox approach to PCI compliance. Compliance-driven security has resulted in incomplete data protection and poorly integrated point solutions spread over a wide geographic area. Further, endpoint security is often neglected on Point-of-Sale systems due to challenges in implementation, maintenance and training. With limited staffing and conflicting priorities, retailers are challenged in combating security threats. In principle, responsibility for IT security cannot be delegated, but many retailers still delegate key security activities to auditors, contractors and stores. Finally, many retailers lack a governance process and focus instead on regulatory compliance at the expense of a framework that governs information
