69% of cyber attacks target retailers.
Commerce, Michigan (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
Nuspire Networks, a global leader in enterprise network security services, has released an Interactive Infographic which details network security vulnerabilities that retailers need to be aware of and the risks associated with them.
As retailers weigh their risks and current network security posture after the recent breach disclosed by Target Corporation, this Infographic can assist decision makers in assessing not only typical security measures like having a strong managed gateway, but other not so well known solutions like Rogue Wireless Detection.
A recent 2013 Global Security Report shows that 69% of cyber attacks target retailers. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering the fact that most retail branches do not have dedicated IT personnel on site but they do have a large amount of sensitive credit card data passing through their networks on a daily basis. This is why hackers see retailers as easy targets.
Because of this, retail networks need to be monitored, managed, and maintained in order to stay secure. This takes not one person watching, but a team of security experts, watching and responding to alerts 24x7x365.
The Interactive Infographic published by Nuspire Networks can not only show where retail networks are often the most vulnerable, but also point the viewer in the right direction for the best solution under each section. The interactive uses HTML5 optimized for Chrome and Safari browsers and can be viewed here.
For those not using one of these browsers, Nuspire has also published a PDF of the Infographic here.
