Multiple technological challenges face the retail industry, which usually is a major target for cybersecurity attackers. The 2016 Global Security Report indicated that “The retail industry once again accounted for the largest single share of data breach and cyberattack incidents investigated.” Industry trends to better leverage online channels, such as through Online-to-Offline (O2O) promotions and expanding physical stores with e-commerce options, are driving retailers to adopt cloud platforms and connect more business systems through the Internet. Mobile device use has also increased, as businesses cater to customers with smartphones and other handhelds, while improving sales staff productivity with mobile POS and other innovative tools. IT complexity in a retail environment, combined with enormous transactional volume that includes credit card information and other customer data, translates into major challenges to properly protect, and support, varied infrastructure, while ensuring systems operate smoothly and responsively to handle massive network activity. A further complication is the wide distribution of points of presence, including national and global retail locations and business support offices and facilities.
