“The holiday season is the time when a good majority of ecommerce cyber-attacks take place, taking advantage of the holiday rush. Retailers should prepare for this in advance and conduct a thorough security check before the holiday season starts. This should include checking for malware in point-of-sale systems and improving the security of web servers.”

When it comes to storing data, the bottom line is to never hold on to more than you need to optimally conduct your business. But in deciding what exactly that means for you, there are a lot of factors to consider.
Particularly with the growing number of data privacy regulations, it’s important to carefully establish your own business’ philosophy to balance customer experience, business convenience, and security.
