IntSights Finds Organized Retail Crime Costs Retailers $30 Billion Each Year

Global Threat Intelligence Firm Breaks Down Retail External Threat Landscape in New Report

NEW YORK, November 14, 2019 - IntSights, the premier threat intelligence company focused on enabling enterprises to Defend Forward™, announced today the release of the firm’s new report, Cyber(attack) Monday: Hackers Target the Retail Industry as E-Commerce Thrives. The retail industry is experiencing more breaches than any other industry in 2019 as criminals consistently deploy new advanced hacking methods to target the vast assets and data retailers control.

“The retail sector is in a high-pressure state with revolving employees, both online and in-store locations, and increasing regulations guiding the sector toward advanced security protocols to protect consumer information,” said Charity Wright, Cyber Threat Intelligence Advisor, IntSights. “As the retail attack surface continues to spread, the industry needs to build a solid foundation of security and monitor external threats to prevent full-blown attacks from coming to fruition.”

Top Challenges and Threats to the Retail Industry in 2019:

  • Organized Retail Crime (ORC): Emerging dark web underground communities target retailers
  • Point-of-sale (POS) malware, web apps, and ransomware: Retailers often lack advanced security protocols to ward off these attacks
  • Inventory shrinkage and store-based theft: Loss prevention teams are at a loss when it comes to disappearing assets
  • The costs of compliance: New regulations and crippling fines plague retailers
