  • Beverley has a technique she uses - she doesn't have loyalty cards at all!

  • Louisa mentions the positive of AI in Cybersecurity as we didn't get a chance to discuss with Daniella and shared some research finding from Cap Gemini and also shares some insights around how Cybercriminals are using AI

  • Beverley wonders what we need to consider from a product development perspective and Louisa offers some insights

  • Beverley wonders if we should sign up to an ethics agreement as a cyber security profession
