Black Friday may have become “a thing” in the UK but it is still dominated by an American company – Amazon, to be precise, says one of their UK rivals, a start-up called Flubit.com, based in London, who want to emulate its success by creating the best prices on the web for goods. They say that typically up to 85% of the prices you see on Amazon can be beaten by British merchants, and ordered cheaper using their platform.

Cyber-security is generating a lot of concern for businesses and for national security. Intellectual property, private information and the entity’s reputation are under threat from massive attacks, and the number is increasing. In October 2014, a professional group of hackers stole account information on 83 million accounts at JPMorgan Chase. A month later, a cyber-attack aimed at Sony Pictures Company stole terabytes of data, including employee information and unreleased comedy scripts. This attack was considered as retaliation by North Korea in response to a Sony movie about President Kim Jong Un. Another massive cyber-attack penetrated Lockheed Martin, a huge weapons production company, and stole terabytes of secret data. Shane Harris, author of “@ War: The Rise of the Military Internet Complex” joins to The Big Trade Series to provide a chilling portrait of cyber-espionage and hacking operations.
