Festive decorations adorn storefronts and holiday music fills every shop; a reminder that the holiday season is upon us. It is a busy time of the year, full of parties, reunions with family and friends and plenty of shopping.
According to the National Retail Federation, 2016’s holiday sales are expected to increase 3.6 percent over last year to 655.8 billion dollars. Shoppers are estimated to spend an average of $935.58 on gifts, food, décor, cards, and personal purchases.
That means a lot of time spent in stores and online looking for just the right gift, decoration, or meal for the season. It is also a prime time for a crime, especially if you’re shopping online.
At SiteLock, we see the biggest shopping season of the year as one of the biggest risk seasons too — at least for online threats. Let’s face it – most of us shop (and many of us sell) online to avoid the long lines and hustle of the crowds, and to make it easy for our customers.
In sticking with the theme of online shopping (and keeping your business and customers safe while doing so), being protected from hackers, and even hearing the website’s story in its letter to Santa practically begging for some attention, we are introducing a fun and informative video about some very real risks that website owners face, and what they mean for their online business. At a time when they can least afford to be exposed.
The content in this custom rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” video is created entirely for educational purposes, taking the approach that even in risky times, awareness is the best form of prevention. A little fun never hurt (so we use that too), but what you don’t know can hurt you, so please be safe!
Enjoy the video! And caring is sharing – so tell your friends!
