The benefits of eInvoicing include fewer lost invoices, quicker approval cycles, increased on-time payments, and improved vendor satisfaction. Yet only 20% of companies receive more than 50% of their invoices electronically. This Paystream Advisors survey report includes data on how eInvoicing is improving AP efficiency and why some organizations are still slow to adopt (and why they shouldn't be).

Validating the completeness and accuracy of sales (and related balance sheet impact) is of paramount importance, but often requires significant manual effort. As revenues grow, organizations are forced to devote additional resources to processes like sales audit and other detailed reconciliations or expose themselves to risk.
For the retail industry, having an adequate sales audit process is crucial to the integrity of financial statements. And innovations like new forms of consumer payments and omni-channel models only add to the complexity.
This white paper examines the necessary requirements to adhere to PCI DSS, the implications of non-compliance as well as how effective event log management and network vulnerability management play a key role in achieving compliance.
Working together, the major payment card providers have developed a set of data security standards and created a council for enforcing them. Although the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) has become a global requirement, many organizations are lagging in compliance.
See how organizations in several different industries have put an SOA infrastructure to use and discovered untapped value within their businesses. This white paper reveals strategies learned from experience to relieve budget pressures, improve time-to-market, boost productivity and many other benefits from a reusable SOA infrastructure.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global security program created to increase confidence in the payment card industry and reduce risks to PCI members, merchants, service providers and consumers. It was developed by the major credit card companies as a guideline to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud.
All enterprises dealing with private data in test environments should mask or generate test data to comply with regulations such as Payment Card Industry (PCI), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and European Union (EU) as well as to protect against internal and external attacks.
All merchants and service providers that handle, transmit, store, or process information concerning credit cards are required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards requirements (PCI), or face contract penalties or even termination by the credit card issuers. This paper discusses the 12 requirements of PCI, and how Secure Computing's portfolio of security solutions can help enterprises meet and exceed them.
With the recent rise in data breaches and identity thefts, implementing a sound information security program is no longer optional. Companies processing credit card information are encouraged to embrace and implement sound data protection strategies to protect the confidentiality and integrity of payment information. Some of the challenges for achieving PCI compliance are outlined in this white paper, as well as successful tips to help organizations navigate through them.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard requires merchants and transaction processors to protect customer data, and firewalls play a major role in the process. This paper was written by Matt Sarrello, CISSP, contributing editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise and Michael Steinhart, senior editor at Ziff Davis Enterprise.
As incidents of identity theft and fraud skyrocket, companies are scrambling to keep up with complex attacks and effectively safeguard consumer information. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, comprehensive visibility, actionable intelligence and the ability to respond rapidly to threats has become paramount.
In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach.

This white paper, sponsored by SAS, examines the interplay between the
challenges and opportunities afforded by the growing breadth of digital channels
offered by financial institutions. Mobile wallets, real-time peer-to-peer (P2P), and
digital account opening all require the right mix of security solutions, background
analytics, and personnel to balance positive customer experience with robust
fraud protection. JAVELIN independently produced this whitepaper and maintains
complete independence in its data collection, findings, and analysis.
Digital currency is here. Consumers have demanded more choice in ways to pay merchants, move money to friends and access their accounts. Payment providers have done well to meet these expectations for immediacy and convenience in managing money. The convenience is great for account holders, but it requires financial institutions and merchants to apply fraud safeguards at the same speed, sometimes in less than a second. Each new accelerated service brings new risks.
For traditional banks, competing in an increasingly digital business environment is a challenge. And it’s getting tougher on several fronts.
First, today’s digitally oriented customers expect banks to provide an ever-higher quality experience defined by speed and the flexibility to conduct business across many channels. They’ve grown accustomed to going online and transferring money between accounts, for example, and using their mobile device to make payments and check their account balance. These kinds of experiences have raised the bar in terms of customer expectations – and banks need to keep up, or risk losing customers. This is particularly true of millennial customers, as they have little regard for loyalty, which banks have traditionally relied on to build their business. Once frustrated by inconvenience, they don’t hesitate to switch banks – and thanks to the internet, this is now a fast, painless process.
Insurers have long been plagued by fraud, error, waste, and abuse in health care payments. The costs are huge – amounting to as much as 25 percent of payments made. Today’s data management and analytics platforms promise breakthroughs by incorporating comparative and behavioral data to predict as well as detect loss in all its forms. To explore the opportunities and how insurers can capitalize on them, IIA spoke with Ben Wright, Sr. Solutions Architect in SAS’s Security Intelligence Global Practice.
Health insurers have long been plagued by issues of fraud, waste, abuse, error and corruption. Taking an enterprise approach to payment integrity – one that combines advanced data management and sophisticated analytics – can help payers detect and prevent fraud; effect positive change in how providers, employees and patients behave; and substantially reduce health care costs. Payers can achieve better outcomes when software support for the core disciplines of payment integrity run on a single platform.
How much are fraud, error, waste and abuse costing your organization? Costs to insurers are huge – as much as 25 percent of payments made. But data management and analytics can save the day. This paper discusses how data can be used to predict and detect loss in all its forms.
Under risk adjustment, health plans with a lower average risk score make payments into the system or miss out on revenue opportunities, while plans with relatively high average risk scores receive payments. So it’s critical for a plan to get this analysis right – or forfeit revenue it deserves.
With advanced analytics and machine learning, health care organizations can be more timely and confident in their risk adjustment programs, more effectively managing the cost of care and building a stable annual financial portfolio.
