Contact center security & risk management

Your customers rely on you to secure their data, and your business integrity depends upon it. Bad actors are always looking for creative ways to get at the personal data of your customers. Our security philosophy is about protecting your customers and your business. It means working with partners such as Foundever that are as committed to data security as you are.

Security at Foundever is not about the acronyms of PCI, HIPAA, SOX, etc. It’s about our deeply held belief in providing real security that goes beyond compliance to provide the needed trust in every customer experience (CX).

End-to-end security built with your business in mind

Foundever puts security at the center of everything we do. As a digital-first organization, we apply risk management principles for enterprise-wide protection that extends to our clients and their customers. Applying our security philosophy, we engineer security solutions into the core of what we do to protect our clients and their customers. We rely on stringent security operations to respond quickly whenever and wherever we’re needed.

Security and data privacy are critical for your business and customers. You need fraud prevention measures that ensure the privacy of your customer data and compliance for statutory and regulatory requirements.

Foundever maintains industry standard security assurance certifications including:

  • ISO 27001:2013 and ISO 27002:2013
  • PCI Certification/Compliance/PCI-DSS v3.x

Benefit from the future of security & risk management today

We make a point of reviewing the threat landscape regularly to adjust for new realities. Our security engineering teams are in a constant search for technologies that thwart security and fraud incidents to protect you and your customers.

As one example, Foundever uses speech and text analytics to identify contacts at a high risk of being fraudulent, while geolocation solutions are used to identify customers making contact from unexpected locations, prompting agents to ask additional security questions or routing calls to teams trained to effectively manage high-risk contacts. Speech and text analytics are also used to ensure agents are not asking for unnecessary personal information.
