Cybersecurity in Retail Leadership Forum 2020 - Argyle Executive Forum Events


The start of a new decade brought in tremendous challenges for Cybersecurity, forcing executives to re-evaluate prevention strategies and re-enforce the security of their organization.

Covid-19 accelerated these changes and devastated the brick and mortar retail industry.

When physical stores closed retailers were forced to solely focus on online options, contactless payments, and online supply and demand.

With an increased focus on technology and ecommerce, retail (now more than ever) has become a direct target for large-scale data breaches and cyber-attacks.

In this increasingly digitized world, how can cybersecurity professionals protect their retail brands from online hackers and prevent security breaches?

Join this Argyle Digital Cybersecurity in Retail Leadership Forum for an interactive online gathering of CISOs and senior-level cybersecurity executives in the retail industry to learn:

  • Key strategies for preparing for and preventing retail cyber-attacks, especially during a global pandemic
  • What’s at stake for retailers, what this means for consumers, and the future of cybersecurity in retail
  • Measures for prioritizing the protection of consumer data and improving the ability to act quickly when faced with a cyber threat
