attack potential for e-commerce sector
Over the last decade, online commerce has exploded and, predictably, attracted ever growing attention from cyber criminals. Attacks on industry have increased sharply, especially during major shopping events such as Black Friday or Valentine’s Day. A retailer that suffers performance issues or, worse, server downtime at these times can expect to suffer significant sales losses.
Preventing e-commerce risks sooner rather than later
Industry depends on ongoing availability of online services
There is a growing number of Internet users (4.6 billion by 2021) and IoT devices (75 billion by 2025)
Users prefer online shopping and expect an uninterrupted shopping experience
E-Commerce involves sensitive user information (personal data, credit card, ID)
Cybercriminals exploit the online shopping boom on special occasions (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, etc.)
Large-scale attacks are on the rise and “cybercrime-as-a-service” is growing

Take special care during
large shopping days
Major shopping events like Valentines Day, Black Friday and Christmas are annual highlights for shoppers that are keen to scour the web for bargains. For online retailers, such days are special because they boost sales immensely. In recent years, online shoppers have come to represent 40 percent of all shoppers, a trend that will probably continue to rise and push sales records even higher. However, while such shopping holidays offer great opportunities for consumers, they also bring with them a host of risks in the form of cyber criminals. Anyone who's suffered a DDoS attack during a busy shopping day knows the damage such attacks can cause.
The cybersecurity statistics collected for this year's Valentine's Day provide excellent insight into how far the threat situation has become. We've compiled all the information and have a free infographic that shows a clear summary of the data.
