‘Tis the Season to be a Prudent Retailer


‘Tis the season to be shopping, as some might say. Holiday seasons are very good for retail businesses, with increased traffic in both online and brick-and-mortar stores.

Unfortunately, business is good for cybercriminals during these busing shopping times, too – and, as a result, retailers need to ensure that their physical and cyber resources are safe and secure.

This is never an easy task, especially at busy times like Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, a few extra steps to increase security can go a long way.

Here are a few tips to become a more prudent retailer:

1) Awareness, awareness, awareness

Businesses that increase their staffing seasonally, as with the Christmas holidays, should ensure that their seasonal (and regular employees) are aware of security impacts for the business. Employees should be told about processes such as using strong passwords, keeping terminals locked when not in use, refraining from writing down passwords or sensitive information, etc.
