New research reveals UK online consumers ready to switch retailers over cybersecurity

kamai Technologies has

A published new research , revealing that cybersecurity is a key dampener on British consumers ’ confidence in the retail sector .

The research shows that the majority ( 59 %) of those who shop online would stop shopping at a retailer if it was the victim of a cyberattack . Furthermore , half ( 49 %) of the respondents indicated they don ’ t trust retailers to keep their personal details safe . These results come at a time of national economic uncertainty , with retailers under increasing pressure to attract and retain customers . Retail sales volumes fell by 1.6 % in August 2022 , continuing a downward trend since summer 2021 . having experienced an attack attempt in the last year . This is reflected in recent global data from the Akamai Intelligent Platform showing that web application and API attacks in the retail sector have increased by 301 % between July 2021 and July 2022 . Almost half of respondents ( 46 %) say they think it is likely their personal data will be exposed in an attack in the next 12 months .

Intelligence , has announced that several companies in the US transport and logistics sector have adopted Darktrace ’ s AI technology to protect against sophisticated cyberattacks .
US transport and logistics organisations to have recently chosen Darktrace include :
• A leading railway company operating across 10 + states
• A warehousing and logistics provider with 2 million + sqft of warehouse space
• A transportation hub connecting 11 state-wide and interstate transportation systems
• A leading retail logistics organisation employing over 800 people
• A US-based international maritime registry with 25 + offices across the world
By extending the areas that Darktrace ’ s technology protects , the railway company has not only strengthened its overall security posture and heightened its ability to deal with threats quickly and precisely but is better equipped to comply with the Department of Homeland Security ’ s TSA cybersecurity regulations , which require the reporting of cybersecurity incidents at surface transport operators to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency ( CISA ) within 24 hours .
The increasing digitisation of transportation networks allows organisations in this space to optimise their operations , from scheduling to the transportation of passengers and goods , but the complex intersection of IT and OT devices represents a wealth of potential entry vectors for malicious actors .
