FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Netsurion, a provider of remotely-managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, will share its data breach protection expertise at the upcoming RetailNow 2016 conference. The event, aimed at connecting the Point of Sale (POS) technology ecosystem, is hosted by the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) and will be held July 31-Aug. 3, 2016 in Grapevine, Texas.

As proven by recent high profile breaches at multiple household-name, big-budget chain restaurants and hotel brands, no retailer is safe from hackers’ advances.

Session Title: Why Embrace Network Security as a First Line of Defense Strategy?
When: Aug. 2, 2016, 9-9:50 a.m. CT
Where: Room Texas 5-6, Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center
Summary: A well segmented network can be the difference between a successful business and a business in the headlines of the latest data breach. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 96 percent of data breaches target the payment card industry. Such breaches can be caused by POS malware, employee mistakes, and internal or external hacking. Not to mention that as businesses protect themselves from these threats, new technology, such as EMV, biometrics and mPOS, arises. Technology gets better; hackers get smarter ... so what are businesses doing to keep their brands and data secured? For businesses, it is important to embrace technology for the convenience of their customers and to stay competitive in the market. However, it is important to not forget about the security risks that new (and more) technology brings. This threat landscape and new technologies should ultimately push retailers to embrace network security as a first line defense strategy. Data security and PCI compliance should be the priority of any business in today’s market.
