The assault is occurring on all fronts, be it through the physical point-of-sale or ecommerce gateway, the enterprise and its supply chain, or the customer endpoint.

The retail industry is seeing rampant increases in the complexity of fraud campaigns, which are creating a convergence of cybersecurity and fraud-prevention strategies. The assault on all fronts has created new approaches to prevention, detection and response.
This session will look at the most prominent threats facing the retail and consumer products/goods/services industries, sharing some of the details uncovered through the information sharing occurring within the membership of the Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Center (R-CISC). Spotlighting threats and enabling focused detection and prevention of a number of cybercrime campaigns, the session will explore use-cases that include phishing, and the as-a-service criminal model; the supply chain, and attacks against retail suppliers; extortion, including DDoS and ransomware; fraud, and the activities that occur along the cyber kill chain; and threats against transaction entry points used by ecommerce and the POS.
