Retailers Fearing The Inevitable Cyber Breach

Written by Clara Hosshage on Tuesday, 15 September 2015.

In January this year The British Retail Consortium (BRC) reported that crime in the retail industry is at its highest level since BRC started collecting data in 2004. Shoplifting is still ranked as the number one crime, but in recent years there has been an increase in cyber-crime and online-theft in the retail sector, with a year-on-year increase of 30% between 2013 and 2014.

Symantec Security reports that the retail industry is the industry liable for the largest number of identities thefts in 2014, accounting for almost 60% of all identity crime. In most cases, financial information, such as credit or debit card details, are affected by intrusions.

Addressing Dwindling Security in The Communications Industry

Written by Tilly Balfe on Monday, 14 September 2015.

Voice security within the communications industry is more paramount than ever due to the increasing dependence on telecom companies from businesses, consumers and the government. The invasion into Chancellor Merkel’s communications in October 2013 highlights the consequences of inadequate protection. Furthermore, as the fastest growing sector in the world it also qualifies as the most vulnerable to breach risks and cybercriminals, weighing heavily in the wake of global institution AT&T being attacked in April 2014, when over 500 customers experienced a data breach over the period of a fortnight. Orange France were also targeted in the same month, when hackers stole personal data from 1.3 million clients.

Doing Business in the Far East

Written by Glede Jung on Monday, 07 September 2015.

Far East Asia is one of the most successful regional economies in the world. It encompasses China, the second largest global economy, even after the recent market turmoil. It also includes South East Asia, which according to the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has a combined GDP of £1.5 trillion in 2015.

The prosperous region is still as attractive as it was 30 years ago when Marjorie Leonidas left the United States for Hong-Kong, which was still under British Administration at the time. The managing director of retail social-proof technology Taggstar was part of a wave of entrepreneurs with the likes of Richard Caring who saw an opportunity for growth and development in Asia.

She travelled back to the 90s to share her experience and gives advice about doing business in the Far East.

Hack Society

Written by Julie Meyer on Wednesday, 02 September 2015.

On 1 July I asked my team if they knew what day it was, and they looked at me quizzically and said, ‘Julie, it’s July 1st’.‘No, today is the first day that you work for yourself,’ I said. ‘The first half of the year you work to pay for government. Between your income tax, social security tax, VAT, you are working 50% of your life to pay for government, and it’s the first 50%.’ Now at age 25, you let that kind of statement from a 48 year old just kind of roll off of you; I’m not sure it sinks in. Give them 10 years however, possibly five, and with a mortgage, family and kids, the smartphone ap generation will ask themselves: ‘who created this way of running society? Who created this system?’
