Financial Institutions Comply with New Identity Theft Guidelines

ID Insight's Safe2Change(SM) Helps Financial Institutions Comply with New Identity Theft Guidelines; Sections 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act Require Financial Institutions to Resolve Consumer Address Mismatches
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2006--Safe2Change, a new service from ID Insight Inc. will help financial services companies comply with recently proposed Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) guidelines aimed at preventing identity theft, according to Adam Elliott and Bob Clark, the company's founders.
Signed into law in December of 2003; FACTA requires that the Federal Trade Commission and other federal entities draft identity theft regulations and guidelines for financial institutions. Last week a consortium of federal agencies including the FTC, Federal Banking Agencies, and National Credit Union Administration, released a proposed rulemaking surrounding sections 114 and 315 of FACTA.
"Sections 114 and 315 both recognize the fact that all true instances of identity theft involve an address manipulation," said Adam Elliott, co-founder and president of ID Insight. "Our new solution, Safe2Change is built on extensive research around that same dynamic. Our core technology has data and analytics that provide financial institutions with definitive resolution to all address mismatches."
"The truth is, people legitimately change addresses all the time," said Bob Clark, co-founder and former fraud investigator. "But at the same time, the amount of fraud in address change transactions is simply too much to ignore. Safe2Change effectively isolates this fraud; allowing you to approve more genuine requests and deny more fraudulent ones."
Safe2Change is based on ID Insight's patent pending Address Differential Analysis(SM) technology - a blend of data and analytics designed to resolve address mismatches and prevent identity theft in both new accounts and address change requests in existing accounts. In addition to identity verification, the analysis produces the AD Score(SM), which numerically predicts the likelihood of fraud. The score helps financial institutions focus on high-risk requests in real time, allowing them to act immediately to protect consumers and prevent serious losses.
Safe2Change will help financial services companies comply with "red flag" provisions included in Section 114 of FACTA, which requires a credit or debit card issuer to assess the validity of a customer-requested address change when that request is coupled with a request for a new card within thirty days. Additionally, Safe2Change is compliant with Section 315, which requires users of consumer credit reports to verify and reconcile address discrepancies between a customer-supplied address and the address on file with a consumer reporting agency.
"Section 114 was written with account takeover in mind, while section 315 was targeted at new account fraud. Both of these new FACTA provisions support what we know from research; that it's all about the address," said Elliott. "Safe2Change allows financial institutions to serve more customers while reducing fraud and investigative expense at the same time."
ID Insight Inc. is a privately held company dedicated to preventing identity theft in new and existing financial accounts. ID Insight is based in St. Paul, Minn. and serves financial services clients nationwide.

Blog At Work And Still Keep Your Job

Corporate Blogging: Six Steps Help Ensure At-Work Blogs Are An Asset

If you are searching for effective ways to increase traffic to your company web site, encourage key employees to blog, but set a policy first to help ensure success. Search engines like Google elevate the rankings of web sites with continually changing content, and frequent postings to blogs are an ideal way to take advantage of that system. One important key to blogging success is to establish a well-defined policy before the practice is sanctioned at your work.

Portland, ME (PRWEB) May 10, 2006 -- If you are searching for effective ways to increase traffic to your company web site, you might want to encourage key employees to blog, but set a policy first to help ensure success.

Search engines like Google elevate the rankings of web sites with continually changing content, and frequent postings to blogs are an ideal way to take advantage of that system. And according to many communications experts, blogs also allow companies to personalize their organizations, products and services, making a human connection with customers that is often difficult in this high-tech age.

One important key to blogging success is to establish a well-defined policy before the practice is sanctioned at your work. Large and small companies alike use blogging, and yet only 15 percent of companies have policies in place to address workplace blogging, according to a recent survey by the Employment Law Alliance.     Without a clear policy, the anything-goes, free-for-all attitude that flourishes on the Internet could harm your company's reputation.

“Whether a blog becomes a useful tool for your company, or a source of irritation, is a choice you can influence with the policies you adopt today,” says labor and employment law attorney James Erwin from Pierce Atwood LLP in Portland, Maine.

To begin, each workplace blogger needs specific permission and clear direction from management, making sure the employee understands that blogging is part of their job.     Agree in writing with the blogger as to the business purpose for the blog and then require the blogger to adhere to your blogging policy.

Attorney Erwin suggests a comprehensive policy that covers at least these six key areas:

1. Expressly include blogging within the same rules that govern acceptable use of email and Internet;

2. Prohibit employees from disclosing or discussing any confidential or proprietary information;

3. Remind employees that they are expected to be respectful of the company, its employees, its customers and its competitors; and are not to post material that contains harassing, discriminatory or threatening content, no matter when or where the blogging is conducted:

4. Require employees to use their real name, not an alias, and; employees must make it clear that the views they express online are their own and not those of the employer. This policy adds credibility to the blog, as it will be viewed by readers as an independent source of information.

5. Require that any reader responses to a blog be edited for profanity, harassing, discriminatory or threatening content directed toward the company, its employees, its customers, and its competitors.

6. Create an agreement with each blogger as to the purpose of the blog, the amount of company time you will allow the blogger to devote to the practice, and any necessary restrictions regarding overtime compensation for off-site blogging.

By adopting policies that expressly address blogging, Erwin says that an employer can educate employees on specific limits and expectations. If it becomes necessary to take action against an employee because of inappropriate blogging, the employer will have fairly warned of what is problematic and what the consequences may be. This simple step will mitigate the effect on employee morale. It will also enable the employer to point to an objective, policy-based rationale for its decision to discipline or terminate, buttressing its defenses against claims of discrimination or retaliation.

If your company does not have a blog, you are missing out on an important communications medium. Currently 10 million workplace bloggers are active. More join the ranks daily. The smart ones are guided by a blogging policy that encourages meaningful communications and discourages destructive discourse.

Probably The Most Unique Business Listed on Ebay, Toll Free Directory; Yellow Pages Are Now In The Cross Hairs

With the high prices and poor results of too many phone books to advertise in, as well as too much competition in them, aggressive toll free marketing company takes aim at the Yellow Pages and opens it’s doors to investors.

Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) May 7, 2006 -- Mark Russell, President of Venturis Systems Inc, put what could arguably be the most unique businesses ever posted up for sale on Ebay- “The 1-800-Certified Network”. The network takes aim at the inflated prices, and poor results, of the Yellow Pages by creating a One-Number directory where callers can reach any type of business, in any city, nationwide.

Service business owners know leads that come from the Yellow Pages are more likely to be price shoppers. With more competition and more books to advertise in, it’s disaster to profits. The answer is to become branded by an easy-to-remember number so clients aren’t forced to it up. (Ex. 1-800- FLOWERS, 1-800-PROGRESSIVE, 1-800-COLLECT). Also, there is no competition within the network because membership is limited to one high-quality business per industry, per marketing area. When customers call, live agents route the call to the business they are seeking.

Mark Russell, president and founder, stated, “We are very excited accept bids for full or part ownership of this business. Numbers like 1-800-CERTIFIED never come available, especially combined with a marketing strategy like this. The potential size and scope of 1-800-CERTIFIED will give instant brand name recognition and great marketing position to companies in the network. When 40+ companies in one metro area all have the same easy-to-remember number, no one will forget it”

1-800-CERTIFIED is currently focused on the auto industry, however the call routing model will be opened to all industries upon completion of this deal.

With this unique listing on ebay, this is THE time for an entrepreneur to walk into this one of a kind business that will change small business marketing and create a whole new advertising medium. If you would like more information,the auction can be found by searching Ebay for the term “1-800-CERTIFIED”. The auction will end on May-14-06 18:15:20 PDT
It can also be found with the following link:
