No other industry sector is in the public eye more than the retail sector and cyberattacks are the fastest growing crime in the U.S., increasing in size, sophistication, and cost. The type of cyber-attacks used to perpetrate crimes against the retail sector fall into various categories such as hacking (use of stolen credit cards), malware, ransomware, phishing and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Retailers find themselves in an environment where they must compete to keep customers while defending themselves against these ever-evolving cyber-attacks. Additionally, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) actors aiming to gain a competitive edge over their competition may seek to understand supply chains and manufacturing processes in order to copy processes or identify weaknesses.
Many different categories of retail companies across the globe entrust the CSG team to provide their cybersecurity services. Our dedicated support for these retail organizations range from providing innovative penetration testing, risk assessments, cyber intelligence assessments, forensics, incident response, M&A due diligence, threat monitoring for VIPs and/or board members, social media account take over, highjacked devices, extortion demands, and the design and review of secure technology infrastructures.
At CSG, we step out from the standard regulatory approach to look closely at the efficacy of security. We look not just at the organization’s compliance; but are the right controls in place and are they actually working. Our team works creatively to stop bad things from happening, help you recover quickly if an incident should occur and get to the heart of the matter to protect you. While many of our cyber risk client engagements are initially project focused, once the relationship is established, our customers come back to us as long-term trusted clients for the ongoing myriad of emerging cyber security issues that they face.
