IT Community

Retail is increasingly reliant on IT, from new sales platforms to managing customer data. Without adequate cyber-security, and irrespective of the increasingly tough legislative regime, retailers will lose customer trust and will be unable to leverage the vast potential of IT to redefine their operating models.

The IT Community brings members together with experts and decision-makers to help shape this integral component of the future of retail.
