Consumers spent a whopping $33.9 billion during Cyber Week last year. With the average adult spending $430 on Black Friday alone, this period remains one of the biggest online shopping events of the year.
Unfortunately, hackers are making bank alongside online retailers. As we enter the holiday season, ecommerce websites are at an increased risk for security threats like skimmers, MageCart, ransomware, and phishing. Last year, the UK’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) reported thousands of MageCart attacks on compromised payment portals right before Black Friday.
