What Is The Need Of Securing Your EPOS System?

Here`s a manual to understand more about the hows and whys:
How Does An EPOS Digital Attack Happen?

Initially a customer care agent swipes a customer`s electronic card. The EPOS software analyses a magnetic stripe built into the card and processes the account data with the customer`s bank details for authorisation of the transaction. To take the customer`s transaction data, cybercriminals will contaminate the EPOS system using software (malware). The cybercriminal would then be able to gain the data needed to "clone" electronic cards. Once malware has been introduced into a POS system, it starts to capture card information as it goes through the system. Therefore, this allows them to sell the data or use it themselves. One way of installing malware onto an EPOS system is by means of a remote PC. The cybercriminal may try to connect with the POS device through a remote contact point or online centralized server.

Why Do These Attacks Continue To Occur And How Might They Be Stopped?

It is common for retailers to have broadly scattered networks and various remote locations, in addition to online websites; giving multiple potential points of vulnerability.

The most ideal away to stop attacks is for all business parties and staff to be amazingly vigilant consistently. Keeping in touch with IT personnel to quickly identify suspicious behaviour at same time as transactions are happening will reduce the chance of cybercriminals succeeding in the theft of card data.
