March’s Topic: The role of identity in enabling and protecting retail businesses

Abstract: Twenty-four percent of the confirmed data breaches in 2012 affected the retail and restaurant sector—second only to the financial industry. Security in retail is a challenge due to managing a large number of systems across a geographically diverse network that requires connections from customers, employees, partners, and vendors. The question is how to allow convenient access for diverse populations of users, across devices, while safeguarding personal and financial information. Identity-Centric Security, where each user is clearly identified and subject to appropriate scope of access, is an opportunity to provide better service, increase customer trust and support the business goals of efficiency and growth.
