Cybersecurity for Retail EDGENETIC strengthens leading retailers and well-known brands, keeping their customer data and guiding them through compliance requirements, such as PCI DSS.

Cybercrime Against Retailers

Retail organisations are frequently targeted by criminals, primarily due to the large volumes of client data they often hold, as well as credit and debit card information processed in their retail stores and online.

In the event of a breach, e-commerce retailers are at risk of losing credit and debit card information, as well as the personal data of their customers.

This can have a significant reputational effect and cause a loss of revenue through decreased consumer confidence as well as fines levied by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and banks.

Attacks on Key Business Systems 

Ransomware and denial of service attacks are also significant risks to retailers.

Key business systems such as point-of-sale devices and e-commerce platforms can be taken offline by such attacks, resulting in immediate and often significant loss of revenue due to a heavy reliance on card payments. EDGENETIC  helps retailers protect their organisations and achieve compliance goals.

Our PCI DSS QSA team can help you achieve and maintain compliance, and we can help mature your overall cybersecurity posture by assessing against standards and guidelines such as NIST CSF, ISO 27001, and other industry best practices. Our security awareness training services can help to ensure your employees are well educated and reduce the risk of social engineering and phishing attacks leading to a compromise and data breach.

Addressing The Challenge Of Cybersecurity In Retail

PCI DSS Compliance

If your organisation is storing, processing, or transmitting credit card information, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS was created with one simple goal – to ensure that businesses can process credit and debit card payments securely, protecting businesses and consumers and reducing the likelihood of card fraud.

Qualified Security Assessors (QSAs) are individuals that are certified to assess merchants and service providers against the standard and provide a formal report on compliance (ROC). LRQA Nettitude is a qualified PCI DSS QSA Company and 3DS assessor and can provide support and consultancy as well as formal assessment services. We’re also a PCI ASV provider and can perform penetration and application testing services to support your PCI DSS requirements.

Security Technology

Ensure your organisation has the right processes and technology in place to mitigate an attack.

Cybersecurity and Risk Management

EDGENETIC performs cybersecurity maturity assessments aligned to recognised standards, which can help you identify potential weaknesses in your organisation and plan to remediate them.

Threat Intelligence

Conduct active threat intelligence audits to predict when an attack is likely to happen.

Incident Response Planning

Make sure your organisation is ready to respond and know what its position is in the eventuality of an attack. EDGENETIC  can assist organisations with responding to a breach as it happens.

Board-level Responsibility

The organisation’s executive board and senior management must play an active and supportive role in the company’s cybersecurity. We can help increase awareness and understanding with your organisation’s senior management and board through exercises such as threat landscape briefings and targeted training sessions.

Security Awareness Training

Employees are critical in reducing the security risk within the organisation. We take a blended approach to security awareness training, including E-Learning in-person/remote training. Expert-led interactive group training sessions can be tailored to your specific needs and take into account your organisational challenges and risks.
