'Tis the season for shopping and scams, CISA warns – Cybersecurity Dive




CISA advised individuals to make sure their devices are up to date with strong passwords or multifactor authentication enabled on accounts where it’s available. MFA can keep accounts protected from attackers even if passwords are compromised, the agency said.
Sticking to trusted sources for shopping can also mitigate risk. Individuals should think about how they’re searching or finding deals and take steps to ensure they’re on the correct vendor’s website.
And when it’s time to fork over the money for a purchase, individuals should understand how their information will be stored and used. Safer methods include payment gateways such as Apple Pay, and CISA encourages shoppers to use a credit card instead of a debit card, if possible.
“Your cyber safety should be treated like your physical safety,” Easterly said. “Stay vigilant, take steps to protect yourself and trust your instincts. If you see something that doesn’t look right, there’s a good chance it isn’t.”
