Cryptography + Data Protection for the Retail Industry

Building a secure cryptographic framework to ward off
cyber threats, using the cryptographic triad:

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI):

Verify the identity of individuals and machines on your network using digital certificates and protect your highly sensitive data from being compromised.

Certificate Lifecycle Management / Automation (CLM/CLA):

Prevent outages and stay compliant. We offer PCI-compliant CLM/CLA solutions to ensure your digital certificate lifecycle is seamlessly managed and automated.

Key Management, including Hardware Security Modules (HSMs):

The foundation of trust and the enabler of PKI by providing + guarding your cryptographic keys.


Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Retail Industry

A robust Identity and Access Management framework prevents unauthorized access to highly sensitive financial and personal information. We work with retailers, ranging from specialty retailers to giants, to build robust compliant IAM frameworks including:

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Single Sign On (SSO):

secure convenience for busy telecom employees

Access Control:

Role-based access control and Attribute-based access control for compliance

Privileged Access Management (PAM):

to provide oversight over ‘privileged’ accounts such as administrator accounts to prevent breaches

Safeguarding Physical Access:

including smartcards

Challenging realities of the Retail Industry

Telecommunications Providers house large amounts of highly sensitive PII, CPNI and financial data that is an ideal target for cybercriminals
Protecting Customer data

Protecting Customer Data

Retailers and consumer goods manufacturers interact with vast quantities of data that must be protected. Ransomware attacks, data breaches, and evolving cyber risks threaten your customers, reputation, and your bottom line.
Geographical complexities

Geographical Complexities

Retailers that operate a large number of locations require comprehensive cybersecurity protection across a broad footprint.
Navigating Regulatory Compliance

Navigating Regulatory Compliance

The regulatory landscape continues to evolve with retailers expected to comply with increasingly stringent regulations around the protection of customer data. Ensuring compliance while strengthening cybersecurity is a challenge, and non-compliance with regulations risks major penalties and reputational damage.
High Stakes

High Stakes Data

Some of the largest and most expensive data breaches have targeted retailers. Failing to protect your customer’s data can result in significant penalties and reputational harm.
Legacy Systems Vulnerabilities

Legacy Systems Vulnerabilities
