Cyber Security for Retail

Ecommerce and brick-and-mortar shops are tasked with securing hundreds or thousands of transactions on a daily basis. At every chance they can, hackers are trying to break into their systems and encrypted traffic to profit from a poor security posture.

Ecommerce has exploded in popularity thanks to the rise of the digital age and most recently during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The retail industry remains a hotspot for cyber criminal activity given the amount of sensitive personal information it holds on customers.

Revenue is increasing as companies make it easier for consumers to shop. At the same time, the confidence that customers have in these digital transactions have given way to cyber criminals targeting the industry for a quick and easy payday. Never has there been more of a requirement for cyber security in the retail industry.

Retail has become the industry that never sleeps and no retailer can afford downtime, be it in their physical stores or their 24x7 online stores. With digital transformation unavoidable, protecting online systems through cyber security in the retail industry is of the utmost importance as industry trends move transactions to a more web-focused infrastructure.
