Security Risks Beyond PCI-DSS

The growing dependence on technology has brought an upsurge in cyberattacks, particularly in the retail industry. With thousands of online transactions everyday and stolen credit cards providing high value in the underground market, the retail industry is a large target for hackers. Ensuring protection of customer databases and meeting PCI compliance standards are of utmost importance to businesses, but many don’t know where to begin.

Rhino Security Labs’ services focuses on allowing businesses to conduct business as usual – without the worry of a major breach or compliance audit. Our consultants understand the high reliance on point-of-sale (POS) terminals and the potential for credit card theft that puts the retail industry at a particularly high risk.

Retail Industry Compliance Requirements

Compliance is central to the retail industry, with PCI-DSS regulation requiring all companies who handle card data to be compliant. Public retail corporations are also subject to SOX compliance, requiring further checks and balances to ensure data security is implemented properly.

In many cases, ISO 27001 is also required in the retail industry to demonstrate proper controls to customers and investors.

Retail Challenges

With large, sensitive databases and point of sale terminals, the retail industry faces a number of security adversaries. But outside threats aren’t the only security concern to IT. Legacy POS applications, poor development practices, and lack of network segmentation all provide weaknesses for attackers to exploit.

Even the largest retailers aren’t immune these attacks – as shown with breaches at Target and Home Depot.

Potential Impacts:

  • Service Downtime/Financial Loss
  • Reputation Loss
  • Negative Press
  • Breach Lawsuits/Legal Fees
