Retailers know they need to protect POS systems, but they often overlook their other networking systems inherent to their industry.
Retailers have a double-whammy when it comes to cybersecurity threats: attacks on their computers and their POS systems. POS malware attacks either remotely or in-person has netted a big win for cyber attackers out to steal credit card data.
There are also retail compliance issues to contend with. Most all 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.
