Amazon’s Whole Foods Market also informed customers that taprooms and full table-service restaurants at nearly 100 locations were hit by a breach. How does this happen?
One of the places, but certainly not the only place, you can have you credit card information stolen is in a restaurant. Most of the time it isn’t your friendly waitress or waiter, nor is it the cook that has decided to take a night out on the town with your card. Here is how it may have happened: Cyber criminals, come through the defenses of the restaurant’s Point of Service (PoS) systems and place malware in their system. This type of malware was designed to collect names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and card verification codes. Malware can sit in the system for a day or weeks collecting this information which is then taken into the dark web and sold to someone who will pay to use it.
As a business owner, protect your customers and company from this type of crime by investing in an excellent cyber liability policy.
