The Retail and Hospitality Industry
When it comes to cybersecurity, breaches in the retail and hospitality industry might be the most high-profile and are happening at an alarming rate. Subscribing to threat data feeds isn’t enough. Organizations need a way to aggregate and de-duplicate all external and internal threat data, filter out the noise, assess and prioritize threat intelligence, and use that threat intelligence to act — decreasing time to detection and mitigation.
Key Retail and Hospitality Challenges
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND PAYMENT INFORMATION
PII and credit card data is the lifeblood of the retail industry. Every transaction involves the exchange of valuable information, and this massive amount of data makes retailers lucrative targets for threat actors. Secure payment technology helps strengthen defenses, but it is not a silver bullet.
Many of the top threats to the retail and hospitality industry use spear phishing emails that are nearly impossible to discern from legitimate emails. Some campaigns engage in a rapid, wide-scale attack to target multiple merchants concur-rently using a shotgun approach. Others target the merchant’s POS vendor or integrator to gain access.
Bad actors take advantage of the fact that IT and security teams struggle to keep up with patching of their POS systems, e-commerce payment applications and underlying internal infrastructure. As merchants strive to remain competitive, they invest in additional digital channels, applications and technologies that add complexity to the environment and further compound patching challenges.
