As the Coronavirus has impacted how consumers participate in commerce, many casinos are shifting their day-to-day credit card processing methods. It's important for you to understand the vulnerabilities associated with these card-not-present transaction types.
A good first step is to complete all critical patches and updates in a timely fashion to thwart cybercriminals who are seeking to take advantage amid the pandemic.
Additionally, with phishing attacks on the rise, criminals are using the COVID-19 pandemic as their subject matter to get your attention. One known attack method is through an email that appears to be from the Health Department that claims to have legitimate information regarding the pandemic. These emails can infect your systems with malware that could compromise your business and credit card data, so it's prudent to be increasingly cautious if and when these emails arrive in your inbox.
