Beware of cybercriminals: Keep your guard up during the last-minute shopping frenzy


Because of the flurry of e-commerce activity, email inboxes are filled with offers and notifications from retailers. For those who’ve already ordered gifts and have had them sent, they expect to hear from those retailers regarding deliveries, etc. This glut of messages creates just the right setting for opportunistic hackers to take advantage of retailers who haven’t properly protected their email domain. In fact, 75% of the top 100 retailers haven’t properly protected their email domain against phishing, spoofing or fraud, making it easier for hackers to impersonate a retailer and guide consumers into thinking they’ve received a legitimate email.
