Secure Online Holiday Shopping Tips
Even Blue Santa knows the importance of using a secure website when conducting online credit card transactions!
When banking and shopping, be sure the website is security enabled. Always use sites with "https" in the URL address. The "s" means secure.
Also, watch out for cyber scams being sent via email. Malicious links and malware are often disguised as holiday coupons and greeting cards this time of year. See Dell SecureWorks for more tips on secure online shopping.
