The Cybersecurity Resource for the Retail Industry
Cyber-criminals are persistent and their methods are increasingly sophisticated, no industry, institution or government agency is immune from attack. In 2013, federal agents notified more than 3,000 U.S. companies that their computer systems had been hacked. The alerts went to firms large and small, from local banks to defense contractors to national retailers. It’s not a question of if you will be attacked, but when. The retail industry is a target for cyber criminals and faces unique challenges in protecting its systems and customer information from data breaches, point of sale attacks, malware and more.
The Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC) is the cybersecurity resource for the retail industry – providing another tool in retailers’ arsenal against cyber attacks. Through the R-CISC, retailers of all sizes share cyber intelligence on incidents, threats, vulnerabilities, and associated threat remediation. We’re stronger through collaboration.
