As online communication has come commonplace, human resources self-service has increasingly become a fact of life for many companies. A self-service HR system is one where employee benefits, payroll, and scheduling are managed online.
When planned and executed well, a self-service system increases employee satisfaction and efficiency and reduces costs for both the employer and the employee.

As organizations and consumers increasingly interact over digital channels, both parties must find ways to establish mutual trust. Experian’s Global Identity and Fraud Report Asia-Pacific (APAC) edition highlights that trusted online relationships are based on businesses providing both a secure environment and seamless consumer experiences. With insights from almost 6,000 APAC consumers, the report found that majority (71%) value ‘security’ as the most important element of an online experience, followed by ‘convenience’ (20%) and ‘personalisation’ (9%).

"Every kind of online interaction—website visits, API calls to mobile apps, and others—is being attacked by bots. Whether it's fraud, scraping, spam, DDoS, espionage, shilling, or simply altering your SEO ranking, bots are wreaking havoc on websites as well as mobile and business applications.
But that’s not all: they’re also messing with your business intelligence (BI). They can skew audience metrics, customer journeys and even ad buys, making business decisions questionable and costly. According to Forrester, ad fraud alone was set to exceed $3.3 billion in 2018.
Not all bots are bad. In fact, your business depends on them. Search engine bots, for example, give your web presence visibility and authority online. Other good bots help you deliver better customer experiences—perhaps a chatbot provides instant customer assistance on your site. What’s important is enabling the good bots and blocking the bad ones."

Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ

Authentication is evolving from static one-time user action, to transparent and continuous ways of validating digital identities without imposing frustration on end users. Behavioral biometrics technologies invisibly and unobtrusively authenticate users by validating the manner in which they physically interact online. Behavioral biometrics technologies learn how individual users hold mobile devices in their hands and press their fingers on the touchscreen. On computers, the system learns how users type on keyboards and move their mouse and cursor. The BehavioSec solution gathers this behavioral data and analyzes it using advanced techniques, to ensure that the user is who you expect them to be.

Professional buyers increasingly expect a hassle-free, fully digital experience with visibility into pricing. Electrical products in particular are a major growth area for Amazon Business and other digital entrants, some of whom undercut the market with bottom-barrel prices.

The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and industrial distribution industry is massive and continues to grow at a steady pace. Despite this positive outlook, individual MRO distributors aren’t short on their own challenges when it comes to retaining and growing their market share.
There are several factors hindering MRO companies from retaining the share they have and claiming more. Namely:
• Complexity: Their large customer counts and behemoth SKU counts render it impossible to give reps market-aligned pricing guidance and sales intelligence
• Competition: MRO is ripe for poaching by Amazon, and as a result, traditional distributors continue to see market share slipping away to the online giant
• Skills: A massive generational shift in the workforce is resulting in a skills gap that’s proving particularly problematic to fill
In this playbook for MRO and industrial products distributors, we will discuss how growth is hindered in this dynamic industry and then provide reimagin
