Supervalu recently revealed a data breach impacted more than 200 stores between June 22 and July 17. The Department of Homeland Security also released an advisory reporting an additional 1,000 businesses were compromised by ‘BackOff’ malware. In comparison to other retail data breaches, like P.F. Changs and Michaels, Supervalu detected their data breach internally relatively quickly.

Listen to our latest Security Slice podcast and hear Tim Erlin and Craig Young discuss why breach detection is not enough to protect sensitive data, the two steps retailers should take to combat sophisticated data breaches and a practical, low-tech way for smaller retailers to track breaches without using security technology.
