‘The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year’ Cyber Insights for 23rd November from The National Cyber Skills Centre

By . December 20, 2018

Who is about to have the most wonderful time of the year. You or the cyber criminals?

You can’t fail to have noticed that we are entering the holiday season. The one where gifts are bought and exchanged, where food is consumed to almost glutinous levels and money is spent like it is going out of fashion.

The online shelves are stocked; the couriers are waiting and we are just a few short days from two of the biggest online shopping days of the year. By this time next week “Black Friday” and its post weekend sibling “Cyber Monday” will be behind us. These strange two new events have developed a more global reach since the advent of online shopping.

Black Friday, the day following Thanksgiving in the USA, is usually regarded as the start of the Christmas shopping season. So, in order to get it started with a bang, deep discounts are offered. Cyber Monday comes after the Thanksgiving weekend and is nothing more than a marketing ploy to get people to purchase online. Of course, this all coincides with the last payday before Christmas, so it’s almost a perfect Venn diagram of consumerism.

…and the cyber criminals know this too!
