A couple of factors this year are making the 2019 holiday shopping season a circus for cybercriminals when it comes to cyberattacks against retail orgs.
As cybercriminals grow more sophisticated and holiday shoppers continue to flock online, researchers warn internet-based retailers could face a 20 percent uptick in cyberattacks this holiday season compared to last year.
In the report titled “Holiday Season Cyber Heists”, released Thursday morning and shared with Threatpost, Carbon Black said that cybercrime activity tracked during 2019 is already setting the holiday shopping season for an upward trajectory in malware and ransomware attacks.
