Retail Back in the Crosshairs for Cyber Criminals
The retail sector saw a significant
increase in cyber-attacks over the past 12 months with the average time
it took to detect an attack rising to a worrying 210 days.
According to security company Trustwave, which has just publiched its
2013 Global Security Report, the retail space saw an 15 percent
increase in attacks during 2012, which was matched by a 17 percent drop
in the breaches of food and beverage companies, which occupied the
number two spot.
According to the report it took on average five weeks longer to spot a
cyber-attack in 2012 than it did in 2011, indicating that
cyber-criminals are becoming more sophisticated in their attack methods
while security vendors, individuals and enterprises are failing to keep
pace with the developments in this area.
The research is based on 450 investigations carried out by Trustwave
during 2012, along with 2,500 penetration test the company carried out
for companies around the world.
