Buyers Beware: Three Steps to Avoid Cyber Monday Scams

Too full from turkey to go shopping on Black Friday? Cyber Monday allows shoppers to avoid the crowds and take advantage of great deals online from the convenience of their computer or mobile device. According to the National Retail Federation, nearly half of all holiday shopping will be done online this year. While online shoppers will be able to take advantage of big sales and deep discounts, they’ll also see an increase in cybercrime as online criminals seek to exploit the festive season.

Statement by Secretary Jeh C. Johnson on the Passage of S. 754 – Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015

I congratulate the U.S. Senate for passing the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (S.754) by a large bipartisan majority vote of 74-21. In particular, I wish to thank Senators Burr, Feinstein, Johnson and Carper for their leadership and hard work. The Senate bill will now go to conference with the earlier-passed House cybersecurity bill. Both bills strengthen the role of the Department of Homeland Security in our Nation's cybersecurity effort. For DHS's part, I pledge our energy and focus to this national imperative. As Secretary, I have directed an aggressive timetable for improving our federal cybersecurity in particular, and have made cybersecurity a top priority for DHS, alongside our other vital missions. Now, with the help of Congress, we will be able to continue our work to protect the cybersecurity of the American public, American businesses large and small, and the federal government, and take that work to the next level.
