Securing Data & Infrastructure As Retail Gets Back to Work and Prepares for the Holiday Rush
(Interview hosted between Scott Ferguson, ISMG, and Courtney Radke, Fortinet)
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Courtney Radke – Retail CISO, Fortinet
As the retail and restaurant industries get back to work and prepare for the holiday season, cybersecurity has never been more important.
With expansion of operational models such as curbside pick-up and order-delivery services for customers, the increasing prevalence of contactless commerce technologies, and greater reliance on IoT and other connected devices, customer data is more exposed than ever before, and cybercriminals and fraudsters are looking to take advantage. A recent survey conducted by Chain Store Age showed that 66% of shoppers anticipate they will increase their online purchases during the 2020 holiday season.
At the same time, the retail and restaurant industries still need to contend with regulatory requirements such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to ensure that customer and payment card data remains secure and private. And while organizations are turning toward cloud services to help, hybrid models can add additional complexity while creating security concerns of their own.
For CISOs in the retail and restaurant industry, the challenges faced are numerous. How can they best protect a new array of remote locations? What is the best way to protect customer data while meeting new demands for service? Are older technologies up to the task, or do these unprecedented times call for new solutions and ways of thinking?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges the retail and restaurant industries face as they change their business models to meet the needs of customers.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the unique security challenges that the retail and restaurant industries are facing as they introduce new business models? And how are securing remote locations and contactless transactions proving more difficult?
- How are regulatory and data protection rules, such as PCI DSS, making these new models more challenging and what are some of the best practices to meet these standards?
- What are some of the new technologies and solutions that the industry can rely on to help secure these types of remote infrastructures and transactions?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Courtney Radke, Retail CISO at Fortinet.
