Be Aware of Cyber Threats on Cyber Monday
In recent years, Cyber Monday has become the biggest online shopping day of the year. According to the Washington Post, on Cyber Monday 2017 online retailers saw a 17% increase in sales from the previous year, with an expected rise again in 2018. This increase in online traffic and purchases has only increased the number of cyber-attacks threatening businesses and consumers. Since Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after Thanksgiving, many employees will be online shopping at work and using their company’s technology to make purchases. This is where the danger lies for many small to mid-size businesses who do not have the security measures in place to protect their company from a targeted phishing attack.
