In saturated, contested telecom markets, credit origination has become a strategically important capability in acquiring and retaining the right mix of customers. Being quick and adept at making enormously complex decisions — involving product bundle eligibility and pricing, deposits, credit limits, device financing rates and terms — has far-reaching effects beyond market share and current revenue.
Digital commerce is enabling businesses to rethink what they sell, how they sell, and where they sell. Fickle consumer and business buyers have come to expect an intuitive and instantaneous checkout process with multiple payment options. However, aging financial infrastructure and complex interdependencies between numerous parties make it difficult and expensive to accept payments online seamlessly and across markets and currencies.
Stripe meets these challenges with an API-based payments platform that abstracts away the complexities around payment gateways, acquiring banks, and credit card networks. To understand the impact of Stripe’s products on processing online payments, IDC interviewed Stripe customers and surveyed hundreds of organizations around the world about how they currently process and manage online payments.

Gaining the trust of online customers is vital for the success of any company that transfers sensitive data over the Web. When shopping online, consumers are concerned about identity theft and are therefore wary of providing untrusted sources with their personal information, especially their credit card details. Other types of online businesses require different but equally sensitive information. People are reluctant to provide their national insurance numbers, passwords, or other confidential personal information, or sometimes even just name, address, and phone number. Perhaps the information will be intercepted in transit, they fear, or perhaps the destination itself is manned by imposters with ill intent. The result is an abandoned transaction.
Hacking is a fact for life. Some hack for fame, some for sport, others for profit. In 2013 a group of hackers created and sold tens of thousands of dollars in gift cards after hacking Subway's point of sale. The 2013 "Holiday Hackers" have stolen data from 110 million innocent consumers and counting, damaging the reputation and bottom line of major retailers such as Target and Neiman Marcus, as well as credit card providers like JPMorgan.

Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket
Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions.
But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website.

Representatives from the debt collection industry make billions of contacts with consumers on behalf of creditors every year. With compliance being necessary -- this paper will explore critical sites of outbound calling compliance.
Engagement with customers online has evolved from novelty to necessity, with an estimated $202 billion spent in 2011 and projected 10% growth to $327 billion in 2016, according to Forrester Research. Businesses are maneuvering to connect with the growing pool of online customers, but the move to eCommerce brings new security risks with the exchange of sensitive consumer information, including cardholder data and personally identifiable information that can enable identity theft. At stake is reputation of brand, ongoing access to merchant credit lines, and substantial penalties and remediation in the event of a breach.
This white paper elucidates the aspects of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance that must be considered when choosing a secure environment for servers involved in eCommerce. Whether deciding to outsource or keep data hosting in-house, any company collecting, storing or transmitting customer cardholder data needs to be compliant, and this document helps pinpoint the specific concerns and standards a company should be aware of when choosing how to keep their data secure. Understanding requirements and best practices for security policies and procedures, physical safeguards, and security technologies is essential to establishing cardholder data security and meeting QSA and SAQ audit requirements.
