Targeted threats against shoppers and retailers alike are on the rise, especially with Black Friday coming up.
As the volume of shopping increases for the 2016 holiday shopping season, shoppers need to arm themselves with knowledge regarding account takeovers targeting their bank information using Phishing, Smishing, Spam and Malvertising methods.
Retailers also need to be mindful of their risks. New POS malware methods are now being used to steal consumer credit/debit card data. With the considerable number of shoppers on Black Friday and beyond, retailers will need to be on high alert this holiday season.
