Almost 3/4 of retail employees in a new MediaPro survey could stand to benefit from enhanced awareness of privacy and security risks.

We polled 847 retail employees in the U.S. on their data privacy and cybersecurity know-how across eight common risk areas and found that:

  • 71% were profiled as “risks” or “novices,” meaning their actions could lead to a leak of sensitive customer information
  • Only 29% of respondents were classified as “heroes,” meaning they had strong knowledge of security and privacy best practices and are likely well-prepared to deal with many cyber threats

The results of this survey strongly suggest retailers need to rethink cybersecurity and data privacy as matters of risk management, not just check-the-box compliance.
