  • Since bursting into the lives of UK shoppers in 2014, Black Friday has fast become the busiest week in the retail calendar. Cyber Monday is the online sister of Black Friday, and that too has ballooned in recent years. In fact, last year, a record-breaking $7.8 billion worth of sales were made on Cyber Monday.

    With all this demand, comes greater responsibility. Luckily for those retailers looking to capitalise on this record-busting sales event, there are plenty of cutting edge technology solutions to help them get it right.

    Techerati spoke with nine technology experts to get their thoughts and advice for retailer best practice this Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

  • Cyber attacks come in all shapes and sizes When it comes to hacking, it’s easy to think of the many films which showcase the criminality of it. From 2016’s Snowden to 2007’s Die Hard 4, hacking is typically associated with thrillers and crime dramas – films which feature a master hacker able to unlock a... Read More

  • Cloud computing has offered a wealth of opportunity for businesses across the globe. From encouraging vast and continuous development of services, applications and platforms, to giving companies a myriad of choices when it comes to finding the right solution to drive business benefit. However, cloud computing does open the door to new risks that need to be acknowledged. These risk factors come in many different shapes and sizes, including unauthorised system access, mass data loss, or the complexity of network identity management.  

    Visibility is absolutely key for businesses to make informed and educated decisions. Without the full picture, correct decision making is nearly impossible and will ultimately lead to failure. With an understanding of where the risks and threats lie, companies can build a defence to mitigate these threats; this is where having centralised connectivity is essential.

  • A common assumption about cyber attacks is that they’re all about theft. But that’s not always the case, as data manipulation attacks illustrate. This type of attack is where cyber criminals access the target system and make undetected changes to data in order to elicit some form of gain, but without any outright theft taking place. Sometimes referred to as “the hack you might not notice”, they have the potential to cause immense damage.

  • Cybercrime is getting smarter and data is growing in value. So, as cyber-attacks become more sophisticated, businesses need to rise to the challenge and protect their digital operations. This October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which aims to draw attention to the threats that are putting businesses, and individuals, at risk. To highlight the importance of this awareness month, Techerati spoke with seven industry experts to get their thoughts and advice.

    The NSPCC has warned Facebook that it risks becoming a “one-stop grooming shop” if it presses ahead with plans to encrypt across all its messaging services. Facebook is considering end-to-end encryption on Facebook Messenger and Instagram Direct – on top of WhatsApp, which is already encrypted – but there has been a deep concern that the move could prevent child abusers from being caught.

    There is no doubt 5G has the potential to revolutionise the way we interact with the physical and virtual world. Yet, guesstimates of how much of a generational shift in technology it will become range from “super-fast internet at some point” to “minority report-like daily lives.” But for gaming technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR), it’s clear that 5G rollout will be a catalyst in mainstream adoption. 

    Starting with what is usually hyped, we can look at the speeds of 5G. We can probably expect somewhere around 300-1000 Mb/s in the beginning, but there have been tests showcasing speeds towards 25Gb/s in specific environments.  For example, in Mitsubishi Electric and NTT DOCOMO’s 5G Outdoor Trials. In these conditions, it would be about 250 times faster than the average speed of 4G. If we equate this to Usain Bolt’s top sprinting speed (about 44km/h), it means 5G would make a person run at 11,180 km/h, or as fast as the fastest unmanned plane in the world, the Hypersonic aircraft X-43A.
