Re: Limited Resources
I'm not surprised. Retailers still have perception of security as a cost. The worrying aspect is that the majority of attacks is not reported for various reasons, because the fear of reputation lost or simply because they go undetected for a long time. 

It is necessary a joint action by retailers, security firms and government .... the phenomena are really alarming

Limited Resources
For the companies that can't use third party security vendors or many detection/prevention tools it should be noted that policy, access management and infrastructure are advocates towards one can be added safeguards. Granted there is cost in the labor of your employees but these methods will prove a short ROI when it comes to regulations/fines. First part is infrastructure. Analyze your network and ensure that items that don't need to be vulnerable to the internet are not. There are many ways that analysis and moving items of your infrastructure can safeguard your data. For access management ensure that the employee is provided the least amount of access available to complete their tasks. Too much access will be detrimental in case of a breach. With well documented policies, most possible secure infrastructure, and efficient access management; resources can be kept safer than in the current predicament at minimal cost.
