The Impact of Wireless Technology on the Retail Industry
Retailers today are using wireless LAN (WLAN) technology extensively to enable mobility within the store for POS terminals, inventory management, and voice. However, because most retail security practices have been focused on the authorized WLAN activity, broad knowledge of the security threat from unauthorized WLAN technology may not be well understood, which has resulted in several prominent retailers facing audits and penalties due to WLAN security breaches. This new breed of wireless threats is a critical component of PCI compliance, which is mandatory for all merchants that store, process, or transmit credit card data through retail stores, mail order, telephone order, and e-commerce. These risks can compromise a retailer’s network and must be understood and defended against.
