                Overcoming Inherent Retail and POS System Vulnerabilities

                ATMs, gas pumps, corporate servers and employee computers are all targets of corporate financial data theft and customer information breaches

                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.

                Learn how to:

                • Protect Point-of-sale systems
                • Meet retail PCI compliance requirements
                • Protect data via 24/7 network and endpoint monitoring
                Managed Security

                Why Do Advanced Threat Actors Target Retailers?

                Credit card data is golden. Depending on supply and demand, credit card data can be found on underground websites for sale in packages of 1,000 for prices that range from 10 cents to $40 per card number. To reach your data, threat actors target POS systems, servers, ATMs, gas pumps and computers.
