cybersecurity - the biggest threat to retail

Make cybersecurity in retail a priority

New whitepaper highlights the need for greater cyber security in retail

Data breaches are a major risk for both retailers and customers. In addition to the disruption and downtime a breach can cause, the damage to the reputation of a business or brand can be lifelong. And with the ICO now able to impose GDPR related fines on companies of as much as €20m or 4% of global annual turnover, whichever is higher, the price of complacency can be catastrophic.

Customer data is at the heart of a frictionless shopping experience and presents an attractive commodity to cyber criminals. It has been reported that in the last 12 months there have been 19 significant data breaches. This whitepaper will serve to create awareness of the challenges being faced on the high street, and how cybersecurity lifecycle management of IoT devices will support a retailer’s business operations, brand and help to maintain customer trust.

At Axis we are passionate about using technology to help create a smarter, safer world. Download our whitepaper to learn about the measures that should be put in place to effectively mitigate the cybersecurity threat, and the key policies and procedures retailers should be aware of when installing, managing and maintaining retail security solutions.

“Establishing a truly secure retail solution can only be accomplished if security has been analysed at every stage. The key is to ensure that everyone involved understands the security implications of a breach and how to prevent one. Collaboration with system vendors, integrators and installers is also hugely important, and conversations across the supply chain will ensure requirements are met and security risks are adequately addressed.”
