Protection for customer and transaction data

Consumers rarely consider the possibility that their favorite store or online retailer could be the victim of a data breach. Retailers, however, cannot afford to ignore the threat. When customer profiles or sales records are compromised, the financial and PR damage can be devastating.

With more than 100 different regulations pertaining to data protection and security, retailers must ensure that nothing is left to chance. Non-compliance can be almost as problematic as a data breach itself, resulting in significant fines and penalties, as well as damage to the company’s reputation.

Facing new regulations, increasingly skilled identify thieves, and rapidly expanding volumes of data, retailers need a new level of sophistication in their approach to data security.
