Snohomish, Wash. (December 8, 2021) – Cyemptive Technologies, a provider of preemptive cybersecurity solutions, winner of the Department of Homeland Security’s national competition for most innovative security-related solution in the market and winner of the American Security Today (AST’s) Homeland Security Platinum Award for Best Anti-Malware Solution plus AST’s Homeland Security Silver Award for Best Cyber End-to-End Encryption Solution, will host the webinar on “Five Tips for Staying Cyber-Safe During the Holiday Shopping Season,” on Wednesday, December 15, at 11 am Pacific Standard Time.
The webinar will feature Senior Vice President Lynn McLean as she offers tips and guidance for individuals to protect themselves and their organizations from cyber-criminals.
From now and through the New Year, cybercriminals are ramping up their activities with the expectation that the festive distractions we are all experiencing provide them the opportunity to exploit vulnerable online retail transactions. The National Retail Federation said it expects holiday sales during November and December to rise between 8.5% and 10.5%, for a total of between $843.4 billion and $859 billion in sales. During the 2020 holiday shopping season, the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received over 17,000 fraud related complaints regarding the non-delivery of goods, resulting in losses over $53 million. On November 24, 2021, the FBI posted a public service announcement warning that cyber-criminals are targeting shoppers hoping to take advantage of online bargains and hard to find gift items for the holidays.
The webinar will feature ideas and suggestions not only for consumers during the holiday shopping season, but also for businesses, organizations and agencies to stay cyber-safe. Individuals and organizations must stay vigilant. Cyemptive protects organizations through the implementation of concepts including Defense-In-Depth and Zero Trust Blueprints. Cyemptive’s revolutionary solutions allow Cyemptive to offer guarantees of threat protection and elimination with financially backed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to be met within seconds or minutes.
The webinar is free of charge. Attendees can register here.
