Today is Cyber Monday. On this day, we're expected to spend $2.6 billion online. It also becomes easier for us to be hacked or taken advantage of.

Gary Davis, Chief Sevurity Evangelist for Intel Security, shared some Cyber Monday safety tips with USA Today. He warned shoppers not to do any banking on a free WiFi, and to shop from home or work where it’s password protected.  Also beware of unsolicited e-mails that tell readers they have a package and need to provide their password to receive it. As for e-cards, don’t open anything that didn’t come from someone you know. But most importantly, slow down and take the time to think through what you’re doing, even though it’s happening so fast around you.
