Attention Retailers! You’re A Prime Target For Cyber Criminals.

retail IT securityWe Can Help To Protect You and Your Business Reputation.

As a retail organization, large or small, you must protect your sensitive customer data. It’s mandatory for you to do this to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and to maintain your good standing with customers.

Retail establishments today are prime targets for the BlackPOS malware that’s being used by cybercriminals worldwide. This new memory-scraping malware infects POS systems and is being used to steal encrypted data on the magnetic stripe of credit or debit cards.

The FBI recently released a three-page document warning retail companies in the U.S. to beware of continuing attacks

“We believe POS malware crime will continue to grow over the near term, despite law enforcement and security firms’ actions to mitigate it.”

The sales process requires you to house customers’ confidential data such as customer credit card numbers, social security numbers, PINs and other forms of personally identifiable information.

Storing this data puts your store and reputation at risk.

Protecting your customers’ personal data 24/7 can be a difficult task. Threats abound in POS systems, web applications, wireless networks, malware and more. And they can come from anywhere in the world. You can’t do this alone.
