With Your Career, Are You an Amateur or Professional?

At some point in our careers we need to decide how serious we are about the pursuit. As the old saying goes: “The thinking that got you into this mess isn’t the thinking you need to get out.”  All of us start as beginners or amateurs – and there’s no shame in that. But at some point, some decide that the pursuit is worth the self discipline it takes to reach the next level, while others decide to stay where they are. I could use a million examples – maybe you’re restarting or changing careers, perhaps you’re a divorced or single mom. You took time off for school or to raise a family. I met a man recently who had spent years caring for his terminally ill wife, and now needed to get back into the workplace.

Whatever it is, there’s a point where a “soccer mom,” a man changing careers, or someone else in transition decides to become a professional leader. Here’s a handful of decisions he or she needs to consider in order to arrive at that destination: FULL POST

DIY Identity Risk Scoring

We all understand the importance of identity verification and fraud prevention when it comes to mitigating risk, acquiring new customers and meeting compliance standards. Because of this, IDology recently launched ExpectID Score which enables organizations to further enhance their customer authentication process by creating their own risk profiles and scoring models.
What is identity risk scoring? Identity risk scores are an easy way for businesses to assess the risk of a particular transaction. By examining a transaction as high, medium or low risk, organizations can simplify the approval processes and enhance their business rules regarding fraud.
When might you need identity risk scoring?
• If you want to comply with regulatory guidelines that recommend scoring
• If you have high risk customer segments
• If you perform international transactions
• If you have ID’s that pass but have suspicious attributes
Through our ExpectID Score solution, you will gain the ability to “DYI” your own identity risk score utilizing our adaptive scoring functionality which allows you to create scoring models that fit your business rules and adapt to evolving fraud tactics. Identity attributes and fraud indicators can be assigned values based on risk to your business and then these values can be placed into risk thresholds that you, in turn, score.
There are many additional benefits to identity risk scoring. Check out our new infographic called “DYI Identity Risk Scoring” for more information.

How to Buy a Car With Bad Credit

Buying a car can be a fun experience, but it can also get frustrating quickly. When you buy a car under good circumstances, you need to spend a little bit of time searching for the right car for your needs. This includes doing a little research before heading to the car lot, and test driving the vehicles you’re interested in. After this, you can then select the car you want, sign the papers, and drive away. Unfortunately, for car buyers with bad credit, you need to do a lot more than to just sign on the line. When buying a car when you have bad credit, you need to know what your credit situation is. Print off your credit report from a reputable source and start doing your homework. You might need to do a little bit of shopping around in order to find a lending institute that’s willing to finance you at an affordable rate.
