What Retailers Should Be Thinking About and Planning For

This post is part of an ongoing blog series examining predictions and recommendations for retail cybersecurity in 2018.

Overview

I see two big things in 2018 that the retail world should think about and plan for:

  1. Retail transactions will be processed on more insecure and unsecurable platforms than ever.
  2. The surge in cryptocurrency prices will drive cybercrime innovation in new, unexpected and unpredictable ways, which may pose major risks for retail.
