How Will You Spend Cyber Monday?
Check Our Computer Security Day Link For More Tips On How To Shop Worry Free!
Welcome to November 30th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate safety as we shop from the comfort of our homes.
Because so many people are online today looking for good deals, hackers are surfing the internet as well. It’s as big a day for deals as it is for identity theft. So while you’re getting your holiday shopping underway, pay special attention to your online security. Nothing will keep you completely safe, but there are some simple, common sense steps that you can take to protect yourself. As tempting as it may be, don’t use public wi-fi to do your shopping and use strong passwords for your online accounts. We get it—buying gifts online is much more convenient and makes life much easier, but you might as well be safe about it. On Computer Security Day, take a few minutes to check that you’re browsing the web safely so that you have one less thing to worry about during the holidays.
Shopping from the convenience of your living room has never been easier as we celebrate the phenomenon known as Cyber Monday. What began as a marketing gimmick in 2005 was actually a clever trend prediction by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman of The National Retail Federation. They noticed the spike in online sales after Black Friday and figured that folks were using the faster internet at work to round out their holiday shopping. A simple press release launched the phrase and the Monday after Thanksgiving became the biggest online shopping day of the year. In 2019 that translated into more than 9 billion dollars in sales. It’s also a win win for shoppers who enjoy the ease of purchasing from their mobile devices. On Cyber Monday keep calm and shop on from anywhere you please.
