Make Purchases Online? Here Are 4 Things You (And Your Employees) Need To Do To Keep From Becoming A Prime Target For Cybercriminals

 ROI Revolution estimates that e-commerce sales will eclipse $236 billion this holiday season. While that’s the most popular time for consumers to purchase online, in 2021 over $2 billion a day was made in online purchases.

Chances are you and your employees make purchases weekly personally and for your business.

And…chances are that cybercriminals are doing their best to capitalize on this to steal credit card numbers, logins, and passwords and even you and your customers’ banking information.

If they don’t follow these four practices to stay safer (notice I didn’t say safe) buying online, they could be exposing themselves and your business to identity theft, fraud, and more.

  1. Don’t reuse passwords from site to site. If you use the same password for multiple sites, when one company’s records get breached (which happens every day) a criminal now has access to multiple accounts. So, make sure you use different passwords for different sites. This does make things slightly more complicated for you, but it also makes it infinitely harder for cybercriminals. (hint – see our previous blog about password management systems)
  2. Check the URL in the address bar. One indication that a website is secure is that it either has a small lock symbol to the far left of the URL or “https” in the URL. If you see a lock that’s unlocked or just an “http,” the site is not secure – do NOT provide any credit card information or bank account details.
  3. Don't use a debit card to pay – only use a credit card. This way, if someone is able to access your account, you won’t lose what’s currently in your bank account. And most major credit cards have a $50 or less liability policy if unauthorized charges are made. So it’s important to watch those statements. If you do feel you’re the victim of fraud, make sure to contact your credit card company immediately.
  4. Be wary of any texts or e-mails about package deliveries. Even if you have something you’re tracking, go back to the site you originally purchased from to check notifications that way. Any links from an unknown sender could infect the device you’re on, which could expose you to viruses and malicious software. 

While there are plenty of cybercriminals happy to scam consumers, who they really want to go after are businesses because they have much deeper pockets and there are multiple ways they can cause havoc.

Call us at (413) 786-9675 or click here to schedule a brief 15-minute call https://tinyurl.com/nyx9sb4j to discuss your situation, needs and concerns. If appropriate, we can conduct a simple security assessment for free to know for sure if your network and data is safe.

What is your stripper name?


Anyone active on social media has seen those seemingly harmless quizzes that someone in your newsfeed takes and then shares…the ones that ask you to enter your first name, your middle name and the street you grew up on to create your “new name.” Joe + Schmoe + Blow Avenue = your stripper name.

Turns out they aren’t so harmless.

A hacker could use any of this info to get past firewalls into your accounts (financial or otherwise) by filling in answers to gain passwords.

They can also use this information to hack into your profile. Then, by controlling your account, they are able to reach out to friends and colleagues, sending messages as you, which can quickly damage your reputation.

According to the FTC, customers in 2021 reported losing about $770 million to fraud that started on social media. That’s an 18-fold increase since 2017 and affected more than twice the 2020 number of customers. In 2021, it affected more than 95,000 people.

Socialcatfish.com ranked Facebook as the most popular platform for online scams.

Other common social media scams include:

  • Giveaways, where you’re told you have won but you need to submit payment info to receive your prize
  • Profile hacking, where someone poses as an online “friend” and asks for money to get out of a bad situation
  •  Job offers, where what you think is a legitimate work-from-home opportunity might require you to pay a fee to “start” or guarantee a high paycheck for a menial task

The best way to avoid these scams is to just be wary. Be careful of oversharing online. Does something seem too good to be true? Is your “friend” speaking in an unusual way? Reach out offline. Know that only scammers ask for money via a wire transfer or gift card. And if you really can’t resist a fun online quiz (because everyone else is taking it), just make up the answers. 

If you do notice a scam, you can report it to the BBB Spam Tracker and ReportFraud.ftc.gov to help others.

How To Find Your Passwords (And Never Need To Panic Reset Them Again)


 

There are two types of people…which one are you?

  1. The frustrated, constant updater: You find yourself having to constantly click on “Forgot My Password” and verify your account, check your texts, scan a finger (give a pint of blood…maybe not that one) so you can reset your password. And it’s probably a brand-new one because you can’t use one you’ve used before, so this situation will happen again and again and again.
  2. The weary optimist: You use the same password for every site, even though you know you shouldn’t because you’re tired of dealing with the above situation. This makes it SUPER-easy for hackers because chances are your password is available for sale on the dark web right now. But…you HOPE this doesn’t happen to you or you think you’re too small to worry about this because they only care about the “big fish.”

 If you’re Person Type 1, it’s annoying, time-consuming and frustrating.

If you’re Person Type 2, it’s only a matter of time before you’re hacked, and it doesn’t end with you but can affect any business computers you use that lead to access of client, customer or patient records, and the results can be a total disaster.

But there’s a simple solution. A password manager.

A password manager is like a digital vault. Your passwords, addresses, payment info and logins are encrypted in the software. You will have one master password you use to “unlock the vault.” If the password manager gets breached, your data is not at stake because your master password is either stored on a server and encrypted or it’s stored locally on your computer.

What’s the difference between using a password manager and one that’s included on your web browser, such as storing that information in Chrome or Safari? The biggest difference is that browser storage cannot be shared with others. For those who work in an office and need to collaborate with teammates, most password managers let you encrypt the data to pass along if someone else needs to access a site. If you have data stored on your browser and then, for instance, decide to make a purchase through the Instagram app, that credit card data will not pass through since it’s outside the browser. 

 Many have both free and paid versions, and they each have some pros and cons. Here’s a quick breakdown of the top four as ranked by consumervoice.org’s latest evaluation (link: ConsumerVoice.Org/top-password-managers )

 Keeper – our top recommendation and Winner of PC Mag’s Best Of The Year for 2021. For $2.49/month, you get unlimited password storage on unlimited devices, with sync features. This software also allows for fingerprint and face ID logins, so there is one fewer password to remember. Families can use it for $5.00/month and share streaming and WiFi passwords too. And, if you need business or enterprise class centralized password management set up a call with one of our security specialists for more details HERE.

 1Password – Just like Keeper, this software offers a free Chrome extension so it can autofill on sites without you having to do anything. It works on Edge and Brave as well. While there is no free version, however, you can try free first for 14 days. Their family version is normally $4.99/month. One neat feature is to go into travel mode, so you can pull sensitive data from your device before you travel and then restore it once you’re back home, with just one click.

 RoboForm – Like the others, RoboForm offers ease of use, robust features, multi-platform support, and robust security. There are both personal (including a limited “free” version) and business versions available.  The business version offers a 14-day free trial for up to 30 users. Pricing, unfortunately is not clearly published on the site, and takes some time to find.  

 NordPass – A well rounded offering in the password management stable, NordPass has comparable features to the other top contenders. Pricing options for personal and family plans starting at free up to $4.99/month and a full 30 day free trial offer for NordPass Business class.

 If you would like to set up a password manager for your business, please connect with us to set up a call to discuss your needs by clicking HERE or by calling us at (413) 786-9675.
