In 2016, shoppers bought more online than in stores – and Cyber Monday was the biggest online shopping day in the history of the U.S!
Unfortunately, that means this is a perfect time of year for cybercriminals. Three common ways that criminals take advantage of online shoppers are:
- Creating fraudulent sites and email messages
- Intercepting non-secure transactions
- Targeting vulnerable computers
The good news is that you can avoid cyber-threats by following all of these safe online shopping practices.
