Recent cyber attacks indicate that retailers have become a coveted target for cyber criminals, hackers, and others. These small, highly skilled groups of actors are exacting disproportionate damage by exploiting weaknesses that are byproducts of business growth and technology innovation. While organizations have begun to focus attention and resources on combatting cyber risk, the issue is not going away. In fact, all evidence points to a problem that is growing ever-more challenging, as it shape-shifts to elude those that attempt to address it.

PCI-DSS Penetration Testing Services 

Retail is one of the toughest industries in the world—high volumes, razor thin margins, competitive advantages derived through marketing and technology. Nevertheless, digital integration and innovation are critical to the future of retail. In fact, e-commerce is where most of the growth is today. Retailers need to think about their digital assets as more than just ways to increase online shopping, and design them to support shoppers’ in-store experiences as well. Addressing the issue of cyber risk is integral to that process, because as digital becomes more and more pervasive, risks will only skyrocket. There are four key themes that characterize the state of cyber risk programs and the cyber risk issues facing the retail and distribution sector:

Understanding risks

The issue for retailers lies in balancing internal IT systems that store confidential data and customer information, with the need for their online environment to be a customer service enabler. A retailer’s internal data world must never meet that of the customer and it would put them at risk of compromising their data security and reputation.

Cyber risk is a business issue

Assessing the state and security posture protecting Retail Services products and services has never been more important. Architecting required preventive controls is essential and implementing detective controls and processes are just as crucial.


In lieu of allocating resources to implement appropriate preventative controls, penetration testing is one alternative detective control that can expose areas of risk created when accelerated application development and overburdened system administrators inadvertently create vulnerabilities. Penetration Testing is also a fundamental security requirement for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
