"Yeah OK, but there's still 50 days till Christmas so don't hassle me!" Is this what you're thinking? What impact will COVID have on Christmas and the holiday period sales?
Holiday sales normally start to really ramp up as we get closer to Christmas but there are definite peaks along the way. That can mean great opportunities for online retail. It starts early and builds up until we've exhausted our bank accounts in early January. But this year sales have been booming for most online retailers and stock supplies have been a major issue. So planning is more important than ever.
Each stolen record costs retailers A$250 on average in the event of a data breach, but the loses can be much greater. and this figure is on the rise. Financial loss can be compounded by loss of trust which is much harder to recover. Cyber security should therefore be front-and-centre for any business operating on the Internet, and we are regularly asked to advise on how to manage and mitigate the risks of operating online. Covid-19 and ISO has delivered a new focus on this old issue. More people are buying online, some for the first time, and merchants are stretched to support the new activity. Hackers see this as a field day for malicious activity.
