Re: So has the retail industry learned from all these high profile breaches?
@TomT640, that's one of the issues I will be asking our retail security experts tomorrow on Dark Reading Radio. There was a study today from BitSight that found 1/3 of retail breaches originated from their 3rd party vendors.

Re: So has the retail industry learned from all these high profile breaches?
That's a good point, @TomT640, (not to mention that I really liked the metaphor "pulling their socks up.")

I hope you'll bring your point of view to our Dark Reading Radio show tomorrow (Wed. 11/19 at 1 pm. EST). We have a great topic Retail Hacking: What To Expect This Holiday Season, with Kelly Jackson Higgins and her guests, Nick Pelletier, senior consultant, Mandiant, and Arthur Tisi, CIO, Natural Markets Food Group. They'll be  talking about what retailers can do to keep both their customers and their transactions safe.

Here's the link to the show: http://www.darkreading.com/radio.asp?webinar_id=162

So has the retail industry learned from all these high profile breaches?
It would seem that those that were breached are 'pulling up their socks' as they say in England but that is no easy task given that a lot of these profiled breaches were down to vulnerabilities in their supply chain.  It is one thing to put your own house in order, it is more challenging to figure out what 3rd parties can and should do, in order to make you more secure.
