Welcome to the November 2015 Newsletter.

A (hopefully) Happy Black Friday/Cyber Monday to you all! Retailers, consumers and IT managers alike have been bracing themselves for a huge surge in demand this week - but will those crucial websites stay up and running long enough for us to grab our bargains? And if they do stay functioning through the inevitable huge spikes in traffic, are UK consumers actually confident that their transactions will remain secure under such demanding conditions? With sales forecast to surpass 2014 - and potentially even pass £1bn - there’s an awful lot riding on it.

A new survey of 1,000 UK customers by the Institute of Customer Service released this week found that more than three-quarters (76 percent) of those questioned believe organisations will never truly be able to protect their data, with almost 1 in 4 suggesting that ‘nothing could restore my trust’ after a data breach. 83 percent of those polled believe that organisations should highlight what they are doing to protect customer data and 81 percent want to see Government take action by reviewing data protection legislation. 83 percent also want to see the Government imposing fines if sufficient safeguards are not implemented.

As Mark Rodbert, CEO of idax puts it, "The real security challenge that retailers will face on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, whether in-store or online, is how to react to the sheer volume of transactions and demand. Staff are put under a lot of pressure during the festive period, and retailers need to take extra care. When the pressure is on, too often convenience beats security. With so many businesses focused around making the most sales, employees will be tempted to take risky shortcuts.”

So it may well prove that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are as challenging online as wrestling with the crowds in person over a bargain Dyson in Asda!
