on Social Media Today:
eCommerce has seen a massive rise over the past 12 months, with the COVID-19 lockdowns forcing most of us to find new ways to shop, exacerbating already established trends away from physical stores and towards more advanced, streamlined online buying.
Which can have significant benefits – but there are also inherent dangers within that process, particularly in regards to sharing your information online, where it can be accessed by third parties.
As we’ve seen in the media, hackers are getting more brazen in their efforts, even shutting down entire companies and holding them to ransom to get their data back. With this in mind, it’s worth taking some extra precautions with your online safety.
