The rise of e-commerce means that retailers now hold more customer data than ever before. Most major retailers will have online stores where customers create accounts in order to purchase products. Gaining access to these accounts can give hackers access to Personally Identifiable Information and banking details, turning even low-profile sellers into attractive targets for cyber criminals.
Protecting the Retail Sector
The past several years have witnessed an array of successful cyberattacks against some of the most prominent retail institutions. High profile hacks against eBay, JPMorgan, Home Depot, and Target all inflicted significant financial and reputational harm on the victims as well as the industry as a whole. These breaches, which collectively affected approximately 353 million customers, were spectacular not only due to their size, but also because of the relentless pace at which they seemed to occur.
These data breaches affect retail companies in numerous ways: profits drop, customer loyalty plummets, brand reputation is damaged and there are sometimes significant fines and penalties.
The threats are obviously becoming more sophisticated. Because of the innovation [retailers] deliver to reach customers - omnichannel approaches, social media, efficiency efforts - the way we work is very different than other industries, and the way we worked a decade ago. While that presents great opportunities, it also raises the stakes of the game.Alison Kenney Paul, Vice Chairman and US Retail and Distribution Leader, Deloitte LLP Cyber risk in retail
