The retail and eCommerce industry vertical is moving toward the digitized approach and retailers are implementing advanced practices to address major business challenges to maximize the benefits. Big data security is key solution securing the retail and eCommerce ecosystem. The retail and eCommerce industry vertical deals with countless payment transactions through various payment gateways, and hence it is a prime target for data breach. This is one of the biggest reasons that the retail and eCommerce businesses are looking out for complete security solutions to protect the data. Retailers are now implementing technologies, such as location-based promotion and internal work localization, to enhance the interests of the customers and leverage the online business opportunities, resulting in vulnerable threats. Retail organizations deal with large amounts of data, which are collected through various Point of Sale (POS) terminals and websites. Hence, it has become necessary to protect such data. Moreover, various initiatives from the Retail Industry Leader Association (RILA) and Retail Cyber Intelligence Sharing Centre (R-CISC) in America have significantly contributed toward the data security awareness. Further, in 2017, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) launched a cybersecurity toolkit to provide a step-by-step guide to prevent and manage cybersecurity threats and secure customers of all sizes in the retail businesses.
