The retail industry includes brick-and-mortar retailers, online shops or retailers who are both. Based on the type of retailer, the cybersecurity threats in retail are seemingly different. When it comes to e-commerce sites, the most common breaches involve hacking the web application, whether through denial of service (DoS) attacks or stolen credentials from customers as part of phishing attacks.
Traditional brick-and-mortar retailers deal with attacks of a different type – the installation of skimmers inside ATMs or gas pump terminals, for example. While small retailers are typically easier victims and suffer more attacks, larger retailers shouldn’t take the matter lightly either.
