In the last year+, the industry saw unprecedented ecommerce demand, and retailers have had to navigate peaks on top of peaks. And along with that deluge in online shopping came a rise in fraud rates. In this webinar, Digital Commerce 360 and panelists will outline how retailers can handle traffic surges and the associated security risks during events that impact a variety of merchandise categories—social media influencer campaigns or media attention, flash sales, releases of limited-edition items like sneakers, Amazon Prime Day and seasonal holidays like Black Friday, Mother’s Day or the back-to-school period. Attendees will learn how merchants and consumers are particularly vulnerable to security breaches and other attacks during peak scenarios. Retail experts also will share best practices for how to prepare for those events and spot issues to protect revenue streams and a brand’s reputation while preserving customer loyalty and confidence that their personal data is safeguarded.
