The basic promise of blockchain is that it works as a global distributed ledger or database of things we value - everything from money, to creative work and votes - so these can then be managed and transacted in a trusted and secure manner. Yes, blockchain is a young technology, but well past its infancy. Today, the somewhat inflated expectations around the technology have been brought to a more realistic level and we are beginning to see practical applications across the enterprise. Although these are typically in the realm of reducing cost and/or time for transactions, improving product and system security, finding and preventing fraud and counterfeiting and increasing transparency, there are also instances of businesses relying on blockchain to create new revenue streams.

Technology has drastically transformed the banking industry and the way in which consumers transact. Mobile banking is now the new normal. Many consumers, especially millennials prefer to do most if not all of their financial transactions via smartphone due to the convenience in which it offers. Even so, the popularity of mobile banking does not imply that the end of retail banking is near as research has shown that consumers still prefer retail banking for complex services such as loan applications, new account openings and advisory services.

In today’s digital world, paper documents are an obstacle to doing business. Implementing a Digital Transaction Management (DTM) system can help, but financial services firms need solutions that offer bank-level security, regulatory compliance, operational efficiency, and a positive end-user experience.
Read the report and discover the top 10 reasons why Financial Services firms choose DocuSign for their Digital Transaction Management and esignature solution.
While most business is digital, and business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions – and the work that supports them -- are almost entirely digitized, most organizations still rely on paper for the “last foot” of the process – the sign-off. Continued reliance on paper-based signature is fraught with risks, including impeding productivity, reducing visibility, hampering compliance, and diminishing the customer experience. Electronic signatures (e-signatures), which are easily implemented from the cloud, help speed up the sales process by reducing errors and bottlenecks, while also ensuring greater security and mobility.

Financial services organizations have a unique relationship with technology: electronic data and transactions are the core of this industry. Financial services firms remain vigilant because they are constantly under attack. Hackers that gain access to customer accounts or financial data can profit either by using it themselves or by selling it to other criminal organizations.
- There are many differences between perception and reality when it comes to security in this industry. For example, its emphasis on fraud prevention creates the perception that financial services is highly evolved in terms of its security readiness. However, this study finds that financial services firms’ security is on a par with the security of firms in other industries.
- Regulations may lead to change and investments, but they also take time to take effect. Organizations should not wait for such requirements before they make improvements. Neither should they assume that compliance gives them full protection. Regulations cannot cover every aspect in such a fast-paced environment.

Issuers need to balance eCommerce payment transaction security and a smooth customer checkout experience. The crux of the matter is how to provide a seamless checkout experience for legitimate customers so they won’t abandon their transaction or use a different form of payment while at the same time stopping illegitimate attempts to transact. The use of behavior-based authentication to determine which transactions should be impacted by requiring the customer to go through additional means of authentication is critical for reducing customer friction while creating better assurance that the transaction is legitimate. Rules are an important component when providing this risk- and behavior-based authentication. When models are added, and used to guide the application of risk-based rules, the impact upon illegitimate authentication attempts can be greatly increased while the impact on legitimate customers is decreased, providing a better experience for the cardholder and loss reduction for

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.

To keep pace with new business demands, rising customer expectations, and emerging technologies, IT leaders are realizing an important opportunity: infrastructure outsourcing. These services, including colocation, hosting, and cloud computing, give IT organizations the flexibility and agility to better serve the needs of the business.
One of IT’s biggest balancing acts is to make data transactions easily available to authorized users while preventing all others from accessing its data assets. With high-profile data security breaches splashed across headlines nearly every day, CIOs are understandably worried about protecting their data. And for IT leaders who are considering moving their business to the cloud it is critical to ensure the provider they select has undertaken full and robust measures for physical and logical security.
Information technology is undergoing rapid change as organizations of all types begin to embrace the idea of
moving computing infrastructure from on-premises to the cloud. It is easy to understand why the cloud has taken
off faster than any technology phenomenon in recent memory. The cloud has the potential to reduce total cost of
ownership (TCO) while enabling quicker responses to fast-moving markets and ever-changing customer needs.
“Being able to flex your compute resources based on changes in volume and customer demand increases agility,
making going to the cloud a very attractive proposition for our customers,” says Brian Johnston, chief technology
officer for QTS in Overland Park, Kansas, a provider of data center solutions and fully managed services.
Merchants and service providers that process credit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), now at Version 3.0. Whether the transaction occurs in a store or online, and regardless of the environment, from physical Point of Sale devices, to virtualized servers, or web servers in a public cloud, PCI DSS 3.0 mandates that these organizations are responsible for the security of their customers’ cardholder data. Read this white paper to learn more about the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 3.0.
With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.
