Cyber Circle

Retail and e-Commerce

The challenges due to competition, rising efficiency, additionally to the cost pressure and combined with increasing expectations from customer service push the retail sector towards digitalization.

The e-commerce compatible with mobile, digital signage and digital marketing, delivery tracking, social media, loyalty card programs and the great need for big data analytics force the retail companies to adopt new technologies and systems. Unfortunately, while the online aspects of the business are what provide simplicity and convenience, they also create a very real risk of hacking.

  • Attacks goal

    Most hackers choose to target retailers and e-commerce stores to get the client information and payment details. Other reasons include corporate espionage, targeted competition elimination, malice, and theft of funds channelled through the stores. The amount of risk for a company increases with growth of its value. As recent attack showed, the malicious software may cause disturbance in daily operations, lost sales, lost customer data and money, always resulting in damaged company reputation. What is important, the breach may often stay unidentified, continuously causing losses and for companies it might take months or years to discover the breach or malicious operations.

  • Weakest points

    Cyber attacks have grown increasingly dangerous and sophisticated, allowing for heightened targeting and more significant damage. Previously, the point-of-sales (POS) terminals located in individual locations were the most decentralized and thus vulnerable to cyber threats. Now, the headquarters of big retail chains and centralized Cloud-based ERP systems are at more immediate risk. Moreover, still the human error and insider threats coming from untrained employees is one of the challenging hurdles for company security teams. While it is advisable for companies to invest in risk management procedures, it is more important to avoid the attacks in the first place. Unfortunately, for most retail companies, it becomes increasingly difficult to sustain the high cybersecurity level.
