Microsoft: Half of retailers lack breach response plan

Seattle – Slightly more than half (51%) of retailers do not have a plan for responding to security breaches. According to a new study conducted by Microsoft, “Security Trends for Retail Services,” almost three-quarters (72%) of retailers do not have budgeted disaster recovery plans.

Other figures from the study also indicate many retailers have not taken recommended precautions to help improve security. For example, 35% still use paper-based inventory of asset-management solutions; 32% are not effective at asset management control; and 31% do not use roles for access. Only 29% increase capacity after there is a capacity shortage.
