It’s the best time of the year! But also, it’s the busiest time for cybercriminals. Since your users will be distracted with seasonal activities, cybercriminals will take advantage of the surges of online shopping and travel to trick your users into becoming the next victim.

Will You Get Scammed During The Holidays?

“During the holidays, I often suffer from Amazonesia,” says Javvad Malik, Lead Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4. “Usually when I order stuff online and then I forget what it is. Regardless of what you order it’s always a great time to pick up a bargain. So the question is, with so many deliveries coming in, how do you keep track of them all? Delivery companies will keep you up to date with the status of your delivery. They’ll send you a SMS, an email, or give you a tracking number. BUT, criminals can also use these techniques to try and deceive you.”
