2015 Payments

As 2015 winds down I would like to revisit a few favorite blog topics that I’ve posted from the last year. This year was certainly one of the most robust with the EMV™ deadline, mobile pay and tokenization to name a few topics that were top of mind. What were the some of the developments you think will continue to gain momentum into 2016?

2015: EMV & the Year of Security

Managing payment card fraud can be challenging for financial institutions. As the October 2015 Liability Shift deadline approaches, many still see EMV™ as a holistic answer to the fraud attacks plaguing many retail companies. Far from a panacea to all instances of fraud, however, it’s important to remember that EMV™ is but one part of the fraud prevention puzzle. Issuers need to equip themselves with a multi-pronged fraud prevention strategy in order to protect their bottom line and keep their cardholders secure.

Tokenization, EMV, NFC, HCE, MST – What does it all mean to me?

The payments industry is quickly changing as new technologies become available and security concerns require financial institutions to react. As a result, a ton of new buzzwords and acronyms are making their way into our conversations. It’s easy to get lost in this alphabet soup. Here’s a rundown of what they stand for, what they do and in some instances how they work together to make our payments easier and more secure.

Information Overload: Why Portfolio Managers Need Analytics

Information and how it is used are keys to any company’s success. A recent study from the University of Texas at Austin found that for the median Fortune 1000 company, a 10% increase in the usability of its data translated to an increase of $2.01 billion in annual revenues; while a 10% increase in remote accessibility of data translated to an increase of $65.67 million in net annual income. The solution is analytics.
