“By now, every retailer is aware of the risks of malware in the POS, the impact, and the simple fact being compliant to PCI doesn’t equate to mitigating advanced threats that no doubt again stole the gold in this case. The only way to neutralize this risk is to avoid any sensitive data passing in and through the vulnerable POS or retail IT. Hundreds of thousands of merchants already do this today with proven approaches using the latest innovations in data-centric security and are able to brush off such attacks like water off a duck’s back. These risks are totally avoidable – and at a fraction of the cost of the fallout from dealing with the consequences.”
