The National Retail Federation Loss Prevention Advisory Council lists reducing shrinkage costs and increasing employee safety as their top two priorities. On the brick and mortar side, loss prevention programs have dealt with physical threats for years. However, in online retail the 2014 PwC Global State of Information Security survey shows that over 31% of retailed have experienced expensive customer data breaches and an even higher percentage have had their employee records compromised. http://www.sans.org/info/159942
Cybersecurity leaders in retail face many challenges in enabling new business initiatives while mitigating threats. Not only are retailers the number one target for cybercriminals going after cardholder data, they also have complex supply chains, high turnover workforces, globally distributed operations and (last but definitely not least) have to meet the demands of the Payment Card Industry assessment regime that often siphons resources away from the real job of protecting customer and business data.
