Make Use of Adversary Infrastructure to Strengthen Retail Storefronts

With adoption of large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, more convincing phishing lures, Business Email Compromise (BEC), and more, there are many opportunities for bad actors to craft new ways to bypass detection. The retail sector is in no way immune to these threats; they manifest year-round but seem to bloom during each year’s busy holiday shopping season.
