Notice, however, these answers focus on what can be done internally — those things the company has control over.
Protect Yourself: 8 Security Best Practices For Retailers
The retail industry is a favorite target of cyber attackers. Hackers know a successful attack on a retailer can give them access to the data of thousands or even millions of payment cardholders.

Cyber crime is big business; it’s projected to cause damages of $6 trillion by 2021 on organizations of all types and sizes.

SMARTtill™: An Automated Cash Management Technology
Cash Still Rules. It takes money to make money. This old adage certainly holds true for businesses that process cash transactions. Cash costs U.S. businesses $55 billion yearly.

As cash-handling industries such as retail and food service evolve, cost-efficient ways to process cash are a must. Mechanical and manual methods no longer adequately support businesses, as evidenced by the $50 billion of retail revenue lost yearly to theft. ISVs that integrate intelligent cash management solutions such as cash recyclers into their solutions help clients meet tough challenges, protect their businesses, and improve their chances at longterm success.
Addressing Security And Connectivity With Cash Drawer Configuration Options
As a new, lighter point of sale (POS) approach emerges, POS solutions no longer require PCs to operate.
