To paraphrase the Christmas song “It’s the most vulnerable time of the year.” Cyber criminals don’t take a holiday, so your chances of being a victim of a cyber attack can increase.  

Christmas holidays are a prime time for malicious cyber actors to take advantage of. At this time of year, organizations will start to close and will be running with a heavily reduced staff count which can make organizations vulnerable. Malicious cyber actors have often taken advantage of holidays and weekends to attack and disrupt critical networks and systems belonging to organizations, businesses, and critical infrastructure.
