Retail industry and security breaches are inseparable. A single attack can compromise millions of identities. The intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber attacks are posing huge problems for businesses who hold the responsibility of protecting their customers’ personal data. Moreover, the retail industry which contains many POS systems has on many occasions – especially during 2013 and 2014 – held the dubious distinction of being the industry liable for the largest number of compromised identities.
Now the question is: what are businesses doing to improve their Point of Sale security?
Fast forward to 2017, the situation hasn’t changed much. POS systems are still under attack from different types of POS malware. And the retail industry is slowing realizing that this is a never-ending problem and that they should be taking necessary security measures to protect their customer data. In other words, they’ve come to realize Point of Sale security is absolutely necessary if they are to stay safe against POS malware.
