Which makes it imperative, now more than ever, that retailers to step up and strengthen their cybersecurity.

According to the LexisNexis 2012 The Cost of Fraud study, retailers in 2011 were paying, on average, $2.30 per every $1 lost in fraud. In 2012, retailers paid $2.70 for every $1 lost. The study also found that for mobile retailers, the cost is even higher. In 2012, mobile merchants paid $2.83 for every $1 lost, compared to just $2 in 2011.
