Today, the retail ecosystem has forayed ahead of the digital tipping point. Along with its enormous evolution, cyber criminals are also largely adopting advanced techniques to exfiltrate customer data. With thousands of customers and high volume user information to handle, retail businesses are one of the most vulnerable targets of cyber attacks. While retailers are increasingly using technologies, such as in-store Wi-Fi and IoT, for improving customer experience, it often lead to unanticipated security challenges.
