Vienna, VA (June 6, 2022) – The Retail & Hospitality Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC) today released the Retail & Hospitality Industry Insights Report, which analyzes cybersecurity trends in the consumer-facing sector. The report compares key takeaways from the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR) with RH-ISAC member data to provide additional context that helps benchmark the threat landscape against a wider community.

The report confirms the trends identified by Verizon, with credential harvesting, ransomware, and phishing representing the largest share of threats facing the community. Additionally, the report provides specific details for the community threat landscape, such as specific malware targeting members.

“This report taps into the data that RH-ISAC has for the industry to help infosec teams better understand the threat landscape,” said Suzie Squier, president of RH-ISAC. “With cybersecurity threats constantly changing, this type of analysis offers companies valuable insight.”

The report also found that requests for information among RH-ISAC members tended to be more focused on policy and organizational issues rather than threat intelligence, demonstrating the various levels of cybersecurity issues that infosec teams face.
