    2015: Retail Security

    The retail industry needs to think outside of the box when it comes to security. Unlike other industries, retailers in particular tend to have more physical and virtual environments, and more open endpoints spanning physical brick and mortar stores, points of sale, mobile apps, online websites, and APIs to/from others. Retailers, keen to better know and understand their customers, are using advanced analytics such as shopping behavior analysis and customer demographic information, and sharing this information across different groups in the organization, thereby increasing the likelihood for exposure.

In 2014, Sony suffered the most devastating hack of all time, Home Depot faces dozens of lawsuits resulting from its data breach, the JP Morgan Chase attack affected 76 million households and 7 million small businesses, and a year later, Target is still recovering from its breach in 2013. So, with a new year upon us, it's important that we take a step back and review the lessons we've learned in the security space, as well as take a look ahead at what 2015 holds.
