Understanding Retail Loss in the Retail Sector

Understanding Retail Loss

Retail loss costs us all. Through the increased cost of loss passed on to consumers, the productivity impact of identifying, reporting and restocking items which are no longer on show (supply chain and store), the inherent danger of confronting potential theft offenders through to the cost of implementing protective and proactive measures in reducing loss.

It is estimated that in Australia alone, theft costs the retail sector over $7.5 billion annually. In addition to just theft, retail fraud is estimated to cost over $100m annually. This works out to be on average approximately $450 out of every household pocket. That money would be much better off in your own pocket.

How to Keep Your Data Secure on the Cloud

Cloud Data Security

What is “the cloud”? No, it is not the fluffy white thing up in the sky, and it is not a physical object either. The cloud refers to the sharing of resources, software and information, allowing information to be stored on virtual servers and accessible via the internet. These servers are designed to manage data, run applications and deliver content or a service. Examples of cloud services include Google Drive, Apple iCloud, Netflix, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive. The advantage of using a cloud service is that you can access and edit information on your device anywhere in the world since it is not stored on your hard drive. Although most cloud storage systems encode each user’s data with a specific encryption key, cloud data security has been an increasing concern. Here are some cyber security tips on how to keep your data safe on the cloud.
