With Christmas just around the corner here are some suggestions for how you and your loved ones can stay safe online over this festive period and beyond.
The Shift Online
The pandemic has prompted a huge shift online this year for work and now, with the second wave in full flight, for online shopping. Back in June, an Alvarez & Marsal and Retail Economics survey showed that 17.2 million British consumers (25 per cent of the population) were planning to make permanent changes to the way they shop i.e., by shopping more online.
