Cyber Attackers Target Retail and Point of Sale Systems (POS)
Post by, Moshe Ben Simon, VP of Services and TrapX Labs
It is estimated that the global market for stolen financial card data will reach approximately $4 billion by the end of 2016. We have now published a white paper that presents an overview of the current state of cyber crime impacting the retail industry. It includes a review of the state of the industry, the anatomy of a retail cyber attack, and recommendations for best practices and technologies.
The highlight of the white paper is a case study involving a top-50 global retailer; the proof-of-concept (POC) scenario required a full deployment of deception technology into the client company’s “virtual retail store.” This test scenario was configured as a production store environment, including all production software versions, communications settings, and hardware configurations. This case study covers the stages of the attack in deep technical detail and includes screen captures documenting the movement and activity of the attackers as their attempts are foiled repeatedly. The detail in this white paper is comprehensive as we track every effort of the red team attackers.
You can download this white paper and learn more about new best practices and how deception technology can help protect your retail and point of sales networks. Use this new information to defend and protect your retail and point-of-sale networks from the increasing wave of sophisticated cyber attackers.
