In the early days of the pandemic, many retailers quickly launched e-commerce stores for the first time. Others expanded their offerings, such as adding online ordering with curbside pick-up.

The result is there is now more data — both public and private — stored in the cloud than ever before. However, now that the proverbial dust has settled, store owners should revisit their retail cybersecurity efforts to make sure the processes and technology they put in place really work.
