Fall and Halloween

Cyber Monday - the official start of the holiday shopping season - is just around the corner. Two thirds of computer users plan to shop and / or research online this holiday season. There's little wonder why cyber thieves go into high gear this time of year - they simply follow the money to make the most profits. Surrounded by the comforts of your home, it's easy to lose sights of this. So if you, like many others, try to bypass crowded stores in order to find the

perfect gift, access your bank account, or make travel arrangements online - be sure to protect your personal information.

In this issue we focus on the measures you can take to stay safe online this holiday season.
