November 2021: How to stay safe while shopping online this holiday season
Online stores can make holiday gift-giving more convenient! But not if they’re run by scammers who steal your information, send fraudulent goods, or never send anything at all.
LITS wants you to be safe as you shop for the holidays. If you’re planning to shop online this year, consider the tips in the SANS’s OUCH! Security Awareness November Newsletter. Sign up to get monthly security tips in your inbox (bottom right corner of their site).
LITS wants to note that some of these tips privilege larger, pre-established brands and that some smaller BIPOC and women-owned businesses might not have the resources to meet all of these standards. We urge you to balance caution and your values as you choose gifts this holiday season.
