Expert cyber security services providing comprehensive protection strategies to retailers

Protecting UK retailers from cybercrime.

The retail sector in the UK is facing a huge surge in cyber security challenges – 7% of UK retail businesses were the victim of computer misuse in 2021 – including payment card fraud, data protection, and Internet of Things (IoT) device security.

Retailers must comply with regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), while also securing an ever-growing network of IoT devices.

A significant challenge is the protection of sensitive customer data. The retail sector collects and stores a wealth of personally identifiable information (PII), including names, addresses, and in some cases, financial data. Retailers must also contend with an expanding digital payment ecosystem, with cryptocurrencies, virtual wallets and payment platforms requiring hardened encryption and secure processing.

Failure to effectively manage these cyber security aspects can lead to reputational damage, financial loss, and diminished customer trust.
