Retailers are storing a lot more data now than they were 10 years ago, and hackers are learning to take advantage of the amount of data that is now being stored on cloud-based platforms.

They have become a source of new security challenges, and traditional security models need to be re-evaluated in order to keep up with emerging threats. 

Along with the development of retail technologies, companies need to consider whether their security policies cover new trends - such as BYOD (bring your own device) and omnichannel environments.

Ultimately you need to consider customer security, employee security, and the reputation of suppliers and partners. All in all, this results in problems beyond that of monetry worth in the event of a breach. 

Consider these security basics we should all adopt.
