COVID-19 and the Surge in Retail Cyber Threats

Calendar July 8, 2020

Kroll’s incident response team is seeing a considerable rise in the number and variety of successful attacks against retailers. The shutdown of brick-and-mortar stores due to the COVID-19 pandemic led to an increase of over 140%1 in e-commerce orders, pressuring security teams responsible for retail operations worldwide to be extra vigilant. This cyber security challenge is compounded by the vast increase in the attack surface now exploited by cybercriminals, thanks to retailers operating with primarily remote workforces that still need access to sensitive payment processing systems. How can security teams better prepare against this surge of attacks? 

Andrew Valentine, Managing Director and lead PCI Forensic Investigator (PFI) at Kroll, along with Christopher Ballod, Partner and Vice Chair of Lewis Brisbois’ Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice, will lead a webcast anchored in real-world cases investigated by his team over the past few weeks. Andrew will cover new gift card scams causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses, new ways hackers are injecting credit card skimmers on checkout forms, and more.
