Single Trade Window is the British government’s one-size-fits-all idea of a unified data entry and retrieval interface. Like any competent database project, it seeks to ensure that data is written once to one location for the working life of the record. The tricky bit comes when data needs to be edited: on a normal database, a single login represents one user with just one set of access rights. Single Trade Window logins, however, will need to give read/write access across multiple fields and pose a risk of sensitive data finding its way to unfriendly eyes. This is a user interface issue rather than a hacking risk, and is unpredictable at best.
