Cyber Security threats to retail organisations
Retailers have much to contend with from today’s tech-savvy consumer demanding communication, service and account management from mobile applications, web services and social media transactions.
Reliance on the cloud environment, the need for DevOps speed and frequency, and AI integration into the sales and fulfilment pipeline opens up a wider attack surface for retailers. With bots accounting for 70% of network traffic, problems arise in distinguishing between good and bad. When malicious attacks have the potential to steal intellectual property and destroy inventory management it’s strange that many retailers fail to invest in sufficient cyber resilience.
