The importance of making sure your IT system is up to date and secure over Christmas
The number of people online shopping reaches astronomical levels. Christmas shopping is made easier as we can sit at home, sheltered from the British weather and have our Christmas presents delivered to the door.
The weekend of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a tradition we have adopted from America, saw the British public spend an estimated £810 million online. Websites crashed and delivery systems were, and still are, backlogged with the amount of online purchases waiting to be sent out.
So with this huge increase in online shopping, it is undoubtedly worth making sure that you are secure when buying online. If you are not correctly protected, is incredibly easy, when you know how, to find out someones personal details online. And shopping makes you particularly vulnerable. You are giving out your address and your bank details to many different websites.
Security online is so important and it is definitely work checking in with the experts at CNS to make sure your Christmas isn’t ruined by online hackers.
