As we are now in December, our shopping habits are bound to increase in the run up to Christmas, so now is the time to remind people about spikes in retail data breaches at this time of the year.
Not only can this apply for people needing to make sure that they are safe when shopping online, but it can also apply for the time of the year being perfect for scammers to exploit. This is the time of year when retail businesses are usually busier, and when there may often be a lot of traffic on websites. It can be the perfect time for hackers to exploit businesses, and any lapses in security could come back to haunt.
Whilst it may be the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be one of the most vulnerable times of the year when it comes to data protection and cybersecurity.
