For large retail companies and big box retailers, the cybersecurity lessons of the past several years came at great cost: severe brand damage, millions of dollars in lost revenue and, in some cases, the jobs of several highly placed executives. But their losses are your retail customers’ gains. Now that retail cybersecurity is top of mind, make sure your customers in this space are taking the right steps to prevent costly security breaches.
For the longest time, network security was all about establishing a perimeter, choosing your endpoints and preventing bad files from getting through your security. But that was yesterday.
