Retail Security: A Critical Need

[ We - that is, me and you, take security seriously. We run patched software, use secure passwords, encrypt our financial details on our hardrives, and are not to be put in the same category as the rest of the morons using the Internet. Yet we are constantly put at risk through others inability to do the same. Last year was a record breaker for lost or stolen laptops. Websites are regularly hacked for their customer details - read credit cards or identity theft. So, while we take every possible precaution, those to whom we supply that information, keep "giving it away". Take care out there. ]

Famous bank robber Willie Sutton, when asked why he robbed banks, responded plainly, "because that's where the money is." The emergence of the Internet as an important tool of commerce would have today's Willie Suttons forsaking bank robbery for Internet thievery, because today, that's where the money is. Nowhere is this more evident than in the retail sector.
