Getting money in the bank is top priority in payments processing. Since October 28, 2004, the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act or “Check 21 Act” took effect allowing the use of digital images of checks to be sent to bank instead of having to physically make these deposits.
According to a report by CompTia, 28% of businesses view security as a significantly higher priority today compared to two years ago, and an even greater percentage of businesses expect the importance of security to rise in the next two years. The study also revealed that while many companies assumed a satisfactory level of security, they did not fully comprehend their exposure to potential security threats.
In the early days of Cloud computing, the common perception was that the cloud automatically opens systems to new, catastrophic risks. When weighing the pros and cons of moving to the Cloud, business owners assumed they were sacrificing security for the business agility that comes with using Cloud systems.
