Computer technology company Dell and security company McAfee partnered up to run a Season of Sharing Sweepstakes and to raise awareness about the fact that hackers and other people with malicious intent will attempt to scam you during the upcoming holiday season.

“The holiday season is a time of family, friends and tradition but it is also a busy time for hackers and scammers. They’ve planned all kinds of tricks to steal your money, information and cheer, knowing that this festive time of year is when we tend to let our guards down. It’s important to stay digitally safe during the holidays,” said Online Security and Safety Evangelist with McAfee, Robert Siciliano.
