ARTS debuts new resources to secure retailer's data

Apr '16
The Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS) has unveiled several new resources to help retailers safeguard their data.

ARTS, part of NRF's Technology Leadership Community is dedicated to helping retailers and solution providers identify, adopt and integrate current and emerging information technology standards.

“Protecting customer relationships and important enterprise data is a top priority for retailers,” NRF vice president of retail technology Tom Litchford said in a press release.

“Data security is everyone's job and these resources will hopefully enhance collaboration between software developers and security professionals with the goal to improve it,” Litchford added.

ARTS Cybersecurity Primer is intended for non-security experts such as data enterprise architects and those who develop and implement various IT systems, networks or applications within an organisation.

This paper provides a high-level outline and guidance on what developers and architects should be wary of in areas of relevant risks, as well as topic areas for further research related to common best practices and management strategies.

“While, ARTS Data Privacy Primer provides a base for architects and product managers to recognise what data is classified as sensitive and what the risk is,” NRF added in the press release.

It also gives input to help organisations develop privacy policies and in addition, the primer offers recommendations to CIOs and architects for enabling a privacy-by-design approach to development and testing.

“It also offers an understanding of the privacy implications of development, testing and operation activities,” the retailer's trade body informed.

ARTS Data Classification Template provides a basis for retailers to begin developing their own data classification models without having to start from scratch.

Using the ARTS retail data model, the template highlights data that retailers might want to give additional attention to in the areas of PCI DSS requirements, privacy, and potentially sensitive corporate data.

“Retailers today face major challenges in securing personal data of their customers and their employees,” IBM Worldwide Research Lead and work team chair Sima Nadler said.

“IBM was pleased to be able to contribute to a resource that will increase understanding of issues around privacy and data security in retail IT development,” Nadler also added. (AR)
