Affecting millions of consumers worldwide, a few high-profile retail breaches have called into question the security practices of retailers and those that support the industry. The prevalence of breaches calls for stronger, more effective security measures in a rapidly evolving IT environment.

Total breaches have risen 62 percent from 2012 to 2013, according to Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report 2014, with the number of identities stolen tallying up to 553 million – up from 93 million in 2012.

That significant upward trend necessitates a change in how we approach security.

Duo Security is sponsoring a live webcast on SANS that explores:

– New risks presented by cloud, mobile and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
– Protecting data no matter where it lives, whether in the cloud or on-premises
– The business and compliance drivers for strengthening authentication security

The webcast is ideal for security, compliance and risk management officers; IT administrators; and other professionals concerned with information security in the retail industry.

Watch this webcast on Tuesday, October 21 at 3:30 PM EDT (19:30:00 UTC) to learn about the top three threats to retail organizations and how you can defend against them.
