11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Meeting description


Individually tailored learning & networking experience for Heads of eCommerce, Customer Data, Digital, Content & CX; Digital Marketing Directors; Chief Digital and Data Officers..

Many retailers have both enhanced and expanded their digital presence in the last year leveraging many brilliant technologies in their digital strategy to accelerate growth. This acceleration in digital growth has also increased the customer data being collected and utilised across organisations and most commonly is housed or shared between multiple systems and departments. This evolution has been mirrored in the workforce; specifically many teams and employees have been working from home for the last year, remotely accessing company information and data on multiple devices and networks. This  evolution has often created a lack of control and oversight which is needed. Although many employees have a high level of security awareness this is often not enough to prevent behaviors that can have a negative impact. It is reported that 81% of data breaches are caused by poor credential management through often innocent behaviours such as sharing passwords or devices. Retail members realise they have a social responsibility when it comes to security – both in terms of employees and also as the guardians of customer data so security cannot be an afterthought.
