Don't Become A Retail Business Statistic
It seems there is no shortage of names in this space that come to mind when you think of security- and not necessarily for good reason.
Some of the most well-known brands of retail have graced headlining news for their data breaches, and the statistics on widespread cyber-attacks are staggering.
When considering how to best protect cyber retail infrastructure, there are many unique factors of this industry that make it less than straightforward. For instance, retail is notorious for constant change management within its user population: otherwise known as high turnover. This continuous granting and revoking of access can leave organizations vulnerable if not accurately assessed and addressed in a timely manner.
The user roles themselves can also be dynamic: part-time workers are commonplace, seasonal employees are in flux around holidays, and contractors and supply chain vendors may need access to certain critical systems. All of these roles, coupled with frequent changes, creates a necessity for thorough entitlements. Furthermore, compliance standards can be difficult to manage. Whether its physical locations or an online presence that spans geographies, companies are required to adhere to regional regulations in addition to those of their headquarters.

In trying to undertake security projects to address these factors, due to their complexity, it’s not uncommon to face obstacles such as:
Investing heavily in a variety of products that span a wide scope but don’t necessarily integrate well together or solve underlying issues
Having limited resources to dedicate the proper time to building out roles for true efficiency and scalability within lifecycle management
Not realizing where sensitive customer data resides or what to do with it to ensure consistent compliance standards across geographies
Roadmaps To Success
Setting aside the hefty fines incurred from retail peers for their security mistakes, the greatest potential loss is one that cannot be put in monetary standards in this industry- brand reputation.
