Cyber security in retail & consumer industry

No retailer can afford to miss the boat when it comes to online shopping and e-commerce

But the online bonanza comes with its own set of risks that expose retailers and consumers to cybercrime.

Cyber security is a priority in retail and consumer goods

Doing business online comes with opportunities but also risks. As consumers demand greater ease of shopping online at home and on the go on mobile devices, you need to be sure your infrastructure is fit for purpose and protects personally identifiable data. 

Our expertise can help you seize the opportunities of e-commerce while mitigating the risks of cybercrime.

How we can help you guard against cybercrime:

  • We implement the ISO 27001 information security management system standard and can also help you acquire certification.
  • We help identify the risks you face and provide a cost-benefit analysis of mitigating actions.
  • We carry out security assessments, including web application security testing and penetration testing on your infrastructure.
  • In carrying out privacy impact assessments (PIAs), we help you control the impact any changes in your organisation may have on privacy-sensitive information.
  • We can design and set up your business continuity and disaster recovery policies.

Building confidence

Cyber security isn’t just about technology and computers. It involves people, information, systems, processes, culture and physical surroundings too.
