Online shopping

Unfortunately, shopping on the Internet is inherently dangerous. Hackers regularly target sites where they know credit card and other sensitive information will be gathered, because sometimes those sites aren’t as secure as they should be. And if one of your employees unknowingly visits a compromised website, there’s a chance they may bring malware or other threats into your business’s network. It’s a risk many SMBs may not think about, but it’s something that becomes even more important as employees’ online activities on prime shopping sites ramp up.

With the holidays almost upon us, it’s time once again for small and midsized businesses (SMBs) to focus on protecting themselves and their customers. The shopping rush has the potential to swamp company websites, and cyber thieves will be waiting for an opportunity to exploit weaknesses in data-rich systems. But by taking a few simple steps up front, Identity Theft 911 says SMBs can keep their customers — and their own networks — safe from holiday-minded hackers.
