Overview

Cyber security in retail and eCommerce

As a retailer, quickly adapting to customer trends is what makes your business successful. But are you prepared to respond effectively to fast-evolving cyber threats?

80% of retailers surveyed for the British Retail Consortium’s 2019 Retail Crime Survey said that they experienced an increase in cyber-attacks during the previous year.

Data breaches, ransomware and denial of service attackers affect not only major retailers, but stores and ecommerce websites of all sizes.
