Let cyber-intelligence guide security decisions
Attacks against e-commerce applications are by far the leading cause of breaches in this industry.1 As retailers move more business online, cybercriminals “follow the money.” Stores need to:
- Maintain vigilance
- Understand your risk posture
- Be aware of cybersecurity complexities in retail.
Combat cybersecurity threats in retail with visibility and threat intelligence
Top threats to retailers involve point-of-sale (POS) devices, ransomware and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. POS breaches overall have decreased during the past couple of years, but out-of-date POS software vulnerable. Comprehensive visibility of your network and devices, backed by actionable threat intelligence, allows you to disconnect devices, kill ransomware and stop other threat activity.
Expedite compliance by identifying and prioritizing risk
Many retailers are subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS0, Sarbanes- Oxley (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and/or California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Yet these businesses may not have the bandwidth to conduct regular risk assessments, much less act on deficits. A managed security services provider (MSSP) offers the expertise and tools to assess risk and streamline compliance processes.
Contain malicious actors swiftly to lessen their impact
The best way to contain a breach is to prevent it with security basics: threat detection and response technology, including powerful security information and event management (SIEM) and security operations center (SOC) capabilities, along with human intervention and analysis. Should a breach occur, the priority is to stop adversaries in their tracks and help you return to a stable, pre-breach state.
