ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two Six Labs, an advanced technology research and development company, will deliver a “Detecting and Responding to POS Skimmers and Shimmers” presentation at the Retail Cyber Intelligence Summit in Denver, CO on Sept 25, 2019. Scott Tenaglia, Research Director at Two Six Labs, will present real-world case studies and details from forensic investigations of skimmers found in the stores of a leading global retailer.

“Point of sale skimmers and shimmers are a growing threat to all retailers,” said Scott Tenaglia. Secretly installed by criminals on credit card terminals, these devices can circumvent all technical controls of a retail store, enabling the undetected and widespread theft of customers’ credit card data.

To combat the increasing prevalence of these threats, more advanced technology services and solutions are now available to companies at risk. Deep forensic investigation of the skimmer or shimmer can pinpoint its capabilities, identify data loss and assist with breach response, reporting and risk mitigation.

Additionally, new technology is emerging for proactive detection. According to Tenaglia, “The goal is to enable retailers to continuously monitor for skimmers and shimmers operating within a store location, to prevent a harmful data breach before it occurs.”
