There’s hardly a day that goes by without news about data breaches, illegal hacking and identity theft. No entity seems to be immune, including retailers. Criminal fraudsters are illegally getting access to millions of consumer credit card details and private data files, even while new payment systems are evolving with new technology and capturing consumer spending habits.
