)-- How safe is it to give your personal details over the phone?
Recent survey showed that almost 99% believe that payment made over the phone is the least secure method. And over 80% believes that their security is at risk from contact centers that obtains their personal information. For age group 18-34, 22% of them don’t even consider making payments over the phone. These are staggering figures considering that 50% of consumers phone a contact center once a month to make a purchase.

Consumers demand for better security of their personal information
Although the industry would still be making millions making payments this way, trends show that consumers will favor brands or call centers that can provide them some reassurance over the security of their personal data. While a number of organizations are moving toward PCI compliance, research shows that this is not fast enough, with others opting to cut corners just to indicate some form of compliance.
“Studies show that more than 65% of consumers would rather be transferred to an IVR rather than give their card details verbally.” (Article from www.callcentrehelper.com published in 10 November 2005) Consumers are wary of how vulnerable their personal data can be under those conditions. These figures mean lost sales for the contact centers and the merchants they represent.
