IHL Study: Retailers Are Focused On LAN/WAN Security And EMV Compliance – Part 2
In the last blog, I shared IHL Group’s findings from the “2015 Store Infrastructure Study”. Primarily, I looked at the WiFi results and the realization that stores need to upgrade their networks to support new cloud-based internal and customer-facing applications. Now let’s dig into the security part of the results.
According to the survey, 54% of respondents consider their WAN/LAN network security “currently ready.” Another 34% say they’ll be ready within 12 months.
A professional mountain biker turned entrepreneur, Nick Martin turned passion to profit when he started selling his cycling gear on eBay.

When you can’t find what you’re looking for, maybe it’s time to make it yourself.

Their designs are loved by people all over the world. The Canadian couple from Victoria, B.C. gets wholesale orders from across the globe.
One woman’s used designer bag is another woman’s beloved new addition. No one knows this better than Sarah Davis, a fashionista who has been expanding women’s purse collections without deflating their wallets since 1999.
If you’ve received a new card from your bank in the last six months, it’s likely an EMV card with a chip. Banks are issuing EMV cards, and retailers are installing EMV-capable terminals to accept those EMV cards. Both are working toward the October 2015 deadline whereby the liability shift occurs. Today, when a counterfeit card is used in a store, the bank takes the loss. But after the liability shift, if the bank has issued an EMV card, but the retailer has not upgraded to an EMV terminal, then the retailer takes the loss resulting from counterfeit cards.

Fast Receipt Printer Demo By CognitiveTPG At NRF 2015
One of the products at the 2015 NRF show that caught my eye – though my eyes couldn’t quite catch up to it – was the A799II thermal receipt printer by CognitiveTPG.
