Keep Your Assets Secure Today and Tomorrow

Your organization is likely more connected now than ever before. The Internet of Things means you can use nearly any device, anywhere to procure and send information—from and to your customers, among your team members, and to a branch location across the country. While this creates an opportunity for better business insights and an improved customer experience, it also presents more areas for a security breach. Since nearly everything is now connected to the Internet or some type of network, it is imperative that you ensure these entry points are secure.

Know Your Risk

In the past, security breaches were comprised of phishing attacks, email attachments, and denial of service. Today, hacking behaves like an industry, and these corrupt organizations are increasing in sophistication. Hackers are constantly innovating and inventing new ways to hack every day. As they discover new ways to infiltrate networks, security experts discover new ways to block. This cycle continually evolves, as hackers raise the stakes. The sheer lack of qualified security resources makes the cycle even more difficult to break.

To further complicate matters, retailers must also comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information can maintain a secure environment. These standards are constantly changing, however, and retailers are challenged to keep up.

All these challenges make securing retail environments a monumental task. Security has never been more of a priority in the retail industry or as difficult to ensure. The consequences of a breach are incredibly significant. Retail security breaches, very visible in the media, have caused a lack of public confidence in brands, as well as declining revenues. CEOs and CIOs have not only lost their jobs over these breaches, but have even been called before Congress to testify.
