The biggest online retail season of the year is upon us. It’s a great time to reflect on whether all that effort you have put into securing payment processing and other financial systems has paid off. Clearly, it’s a different shopping season in 2020, as more consumers are buying gifts from their couch during the coronavirus pandemic, according to CNBC. The more shoppers, the more scammers and cyber criminals, which means your systems are being tested to the max. Will they hold up?
En medio de scammers, skimmers, y vendedores, asegurar las transacciones es de gran importancia para los retailers, durante cada día en la temporada de fiestas de fin de año. Así como las operaciones retail 24×7, los hackers nunca descansan. La más reciente amenaza, el Magecart attack, una técnica de skimming de una tarjeta de crédito para secuestrar transacciones de Paypal durante el checkout.
Amazon and its sellers rang in more than $4.8 billion in sales — a record — from Black Friday through Cyber Monday this year. Imagine the number of payment transactions whizzing through the stratosphere in those four days!
