The Hidden Dangers of Holiday Online Shopping

Shopping sprees. Unbeatable sales. The search for that perfect gift.

As we say farewell to the autumn leaves, many of us look forward to the joyous holiday season – and finding that perfect online bargain. Meanwhile, scammers are on the lookout for their next easy target.

This holiday season will have millions of Americans turning to online stores for the unbeatable convenience. In fact, 20% of all retail sales already happen online! This number is expected to continually increase to a hefty tune of $490.4 billion in revenue over the next few years.

However, while online shopping may be convenient, it’s crucial to remember that with increased online activity comes increased cyber threats. Scammers, hackers, bad actors, all love when you spend money online.

With many shoppers looking for the perfect online deal, it makes them more likely to fall for a scam – or phishing attack. Sadly, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reported in 2022 that consumers lost nearly $8.8 billion to fraud. It also named online shopping as the 2nd highest form of fraud, right behind imposters or bad actors.

Why is the Holiday Season a Prime Time for Cyberattacks?

  1. Volume: The sheer number of transactions during the holiday season means more opportunities for cybercriminals to strike.
  2. Distraction: In the rush and excitement of finding the best deals, even the most cautious can overlook red flags.
  3. New Shoppers: Those who may not be accustomed to online shopping are much more vulnerable to an attack.

Great work team! "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."
Michael Jordan

In early October, our team had the esteemed privilege of presenting a session on cybersecurity at the YWCA\’s 2023 Women\’s Emerge Conference. We shared insights on the latest cybersecurity threats, defense strategies, and the importance of cyber resilience in an increasingly digital world.

Additionally, our close-knit team of 19 here at TREYSTA proudly participated in the United Way of Adams County\’s \”Bag the Bounty\” food drive. Together, we gathered and donated two carloads brimming with groceries, aiming to make a difference in the lives of those in need within our community.

At the end of October, team TREYSTA participated in the annual Hanover Halloween Parade as your friendly neighborhood \”Virusbusters\” – a play on Ghostbusters! Participating was an amazing way to connect and join our community in a fun and festive way. We look forward to next year!
