Love it or hate it, there’s no denying the unstoppable force of Black Friday. What started off as a tradition across the pond has now become the highlight of every British bargain-hunter’s calendar. 

Whether you’re brave enough to flock to Oxford Street or prefer to shop online from the comfort of your own bed, there are serious savings to be had. Laptops, games consoles and clothes are all sold at a fraction of the price – perfect if you want to do some early Christmas shopping.

Because this event only comes around once a year, you need to be as prepared as possible – ideally, knowing exactly what you’re looking to buy. To help you prepare for your guilt-free shopping spree, therefore, we have created a guide of everything you need to know about Black Friday – including the start date, how to find the best deals, how to be safe when shopping online, and predictions of this year’s big-sellers.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is a tradition that originates from America, where retailers cut prices on a huge range of items the day after Thanksgiving. However, in recent years Britain has also jumped on the bandwagon.

As such, you can expect major UK retailers to cut prices on a large selection of items – including big-budget electrical items, beauty gift sets, kitchen equipment and clothes.

New York offers free #cyber #security #tools to #public to deter #hackers

New York City will offer free cyber security tools to the public as part of a new effort to improve online safety, officials said on Thursday, a week after Atlanta was hit with a ransomware attack that knocked some municipal systems offline.

The program, dubbed NYC Secure, will launch a free smartphone protection app to warn users when suspicious activity is detected on their devices, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced at a news conference.

“New Yorkers aren’t safe online. We can’t wait around for other levels of government to do something about it or the private sector,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

The program will cost the city about $5 million per year, he said.

“It’s our job in government to make sure that people are safe online. It’s a new reality,” de Blasio said.

City agencies will also beef up security protection on public Wi-Fi networks by the end of the year to protect residents, workers and visitors.

Those networks will be secured with a tool, dubbed Quad9, that is available to anybody in New York City and beyond at quad9.net Quad9 routes a user’s web traffic through servers that identify and block malicious sites and email.

NYC Secure was unveiled as Atlanta officials worked alongside federal law enforcement and technicians from private security firms to investigate the cause of the attack that encrypted data on computers.

Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore said she was waiting to hear more about how the hackers breached city networks, the scope of the attack and when city services would be fully operational.

“Everybody in the public wants to know. I want to know, too,” Moore said at a news conference. “But I do think that we need to give them an opportunity to get the information.”

Atlanta on Thursday reactivated a website that allows residents to make requests for trash pickup, report traffic signal outages and ask for other public works-related services.

Municipal court services remained offline on Thursday and City Hall employees told Reuters their work computers were still unusable a week after the hack was detected.

The arrest of 18 to 21-year-olds for drugs or alcohol may not be the end of the world for those in handcuffs, thanks to a new state law. Now young adults who make those mistakes have options for help through the Rivers McGraw Act.
