Cybersecurity during the holiday season is a major concern for businesses across all sectors, but it’s especially critical for e-commerce companies.
As we prepare for increased shopping, Cyber Monday bargains, and exclusive online promotions, cybercriminals and malicious actors are hitting their busiest time for carrying out scams and successful breaches. Many seize this «profitable» period as the ideal opportunity to conduct cyberfrauds, employing tactics like social engineering, malware, ransomware, and targeted DDoS attacks on either customers or the businesses themselves.
According to an e-commerce security report, it’s evident that this industry has been the primary target for three consecutive years. During the holidays, DDoS attacks not only increased significantly, but some reports even suggest a staggering year-over-year rise of over 200% in 2021. Moreover, ransomware attacks affected 44% of organizations.
In this ongoing cat-and-mouse game, as e-commerce businesses embrace ever-evolving technologies to maintain competitiveness, the attackers are also enhancing their skills and uncovering fresh vulnerabilities to exploit. To safeguard their systems and customers effectively, companies must take a proactive approach by detecting scams, minimizing their vulnerability exposure, and having robust recovery mechanisms in place for potential attacks. Staying one step ahead of adversaries involves a deep understanding of e-commerce security best practices and remaining vigilant for various types of potential threats.
