CybeReady introduces the 2023 Holiday CISO Toolkit

Ensure Employee Safety with CybeReady’s Holiday Guidance

CybeReady, a global leader in security awareness training, is proud to introduce the company’s 2023 Holiday CISO Toolkit, an insightful guide designed to reinforce cybersecurity awareness for organizations during the holiday season. The complimentary downloadable manual is meticulously crafted to equip employees with essential knowledge and strategies to counteract the heightened cyber threats present during this time of the year.

During the 2022 holiday shopping season, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received reports from almost 12,000 victims with a loss of over $73 million.  As reported recently by the FBI, the increased incidence of cyberattacks during holidays highlights an ongoing trend by cybercriminals and is indicative of attackers strategically exploiting times when employees and organizations are likely to have lowered defenses due to reduced vigilance.

The predictability of holidays allows attackers to carefully plan their activities. Knowing when organizations might be more vulnerable due to reduced staffing and this insight enables them to time their attacks for maximum effect. Moreover, the global nature of cybercrime means that attackers operating in different time zones can launch attacks when it’s most advantageous for them, which may coincide with times when their targets are least prepared. To assist in countering these threats, CybeReady has prepared the Holiday Manual available here. The Manual allows CISOs to send their employees easy, friendly tips to ensure their safety during the holidays. Key highlights of the Holiday Manual include:Safeguarding Online Shopping Practices: The manual provides insights into identifying secure e-commerce platforms, avoiding deceptive bargains, and recognizing signs of potential scams, a common trap during the busy shopping season.

5. Charitable Giving with Caution: The guide underscores the importance of verifying charitable organizations before making donations, safeguarding against fraudulent schemes that exploit the season’s goodwill.
