‘Security is a process not a product’ states Nathan Sweaney, Senior Security Consultant at Secure Ideas based out of Jacksonville Florida. Brian talks with Nathan about cybersecurity and the retail vertical. How does PCI compliance effect retailers and what is their risk exposure.

Nathan shares some good ideas for MSP’s on how they can approach and prospect this vertical which starts by really understanding their business and process. A compliance review of their systems and network is an effective conversation starter. Educate them on the ramifications of a breach followed by a PCI investigation and potentially steep fines could quickly force an SMB out of business. Retailers go to extreme measures and procedures to secure their cash….they need to follow this with their networks where the electronic cash is processing.

Should you have any questions about information discussed or inquiries about Secure Ideas services Nathan can be contacted directly through their website by email or phone.
