Retail Security Services PCI-DSS

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.

Having strategically harnessed technology to produce digital businesses, many companies are now creating the adaptable, scalable, and interconnected platform for an ecosystem-based digital economy. The speed at which newer technologies are being adopted by FIs significantly add to the security and compliance risks that need to be managed.

Unfortunately, the fast changes in the digital economy have also introduced intimidating risks. The financial services industry is under attack by numerous significant cybercriminal threats. In many cases where certain systems were breached, the method of compromise was attributed to simple configuration errors or missed patches that, in turn, gave rise to a critical vulnerability. Given the constant competitive pressure and the current economic strain to operate more efficiently, due care to address security risks is more challenging than ever.

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).

Vulnerability Assessments (VA) & Vulnerability Management (VM)
Performing a vulnerability assessment can provide an accurate “point-in-time” representation of the organization’s security posture. However, this is not enough. There must be a mechanism incorporated into the procedures to ensure that the VA process is conducted on a continual basis. This is the only way to really minimize the overall risk.
