• Typical credit card malware must successfully persist on a network for months, while a ransomware attack needs only minutes to complete the mission. Cybercriminals are always looking for quicker, more efficient ways to make money. Deploying a ransomware attack that shuts down the POS system can effectively hold a business hostage, bringing revenue to a screeching halt, and it could be the next big threat.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Except in business, where an ounce of prevention can be worth several million dollars. The force of that logic has compelled enterprises and small- to mid-size businesses (SMBs) across industries, from retail and hospitality, to healthcare and finance, to invest significantly in cybersecurity. But as events have shown, those investments are not always effective.

The secret is to invest strategically. Download this whitepaper to gain insight into POS ransomware threats and how to prepare effectively.

72% of infected businesses lost access to data for 2 days or more.


“Stealing credit card data takes months, whereas ransomware takes minutes. It will not be long before cybercriminals utilize ransomware that freezes all of a business’ POS systems, and the ransom will not be for the release of data, it will be for the ability to get back in business. Imagine the lost revenue for a major retailer if they needed to shut down all of their stores for a few days, or even a few hours, especially over the busy holiday season. The impact would be devastating.”
