Re: Don't get your hopes up

I see one problem with retail digital security that is largely overlooked. Many retail establishments are 'Mom and Pop' operations or small scale chains. These companies are dependent on their vendors and installers being competent. If the POS is set up, maintained, and upgraded properly there is no problem. But most of these retailers do not understand how the POS system works and are technically unsophisticated. If outfits like Target are clueless these retailers are in even worse shape.
