With more than a million restaurants in the U.S. alone, there is certainly an abundance of opportunity for a security breach. The large number of daily credit/debit card transactions makes restaurants incredibly appealing to cyber criminals.
Should your business’s information technology and/or Point-of-Sale (POS) system be successfully breached, the news media will be demanding to know the details.
Publicized restaurant data breaches have been blamed for as much as a 15% drop in business. In franchise cases, that negative publicity often impacts the brand image and sales of the entire chain. You can't afford to leave your restaurant unprotected.
