Target, Home Depot, Michaels, PF Chang’s, Jimmy John’s, Goodwill, Sheplers—the list goes on … and on…. In fact, 43 percent of retailers have experienced data breaches thus far in 2014.1 In September 2014, SANS Institute Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore joined Erick Ingleby, LogRhythm Product Manager, to discuss the ongoing issues of retail security, including point-of-sale (POS) security, in the “Hardening Retail Security: Why and How to Prevent Breaches and Attacks” webcast.
