Join Rick Petrecca from Indy.gov, the Center for Digital Government, and Digital Communities, as we explore how the combined government of Indianapolis and Marion County has solved the challenge of securing online payments quickly and at low cost. We will discuss:
Services such as court records, permit applications, and traffic ticket payments made available online and over-the-counter by Indianapolis/Marion County
Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and what it requires of governments
Common challenges for governments, including swipe devices, unsecured desktop
computers, and compensating controls
Quick methods of implementing such services by centralizing payments collected on behalf of each department and re-using applications which have already been developed for other governments
Citizens are now making millions of payments to City, County and State governments and are demanding even more services be made available online. Credit card companies are also requiring more stringent safeguards to protect customer information. During this webinar, you will learn steps governments can take to secure constituent and customer payments.

In a phenomenon dubbed “The Silver Tsunami,” career employees are aging out of the government workforce in droves, leaving the public sector challenged to fill key positions. To attract and retain the next generation of talent, government agencies must embrace new strategies for training employees on software and technology, management strategies, productivity skills, negotiation techniques, and more.
How can social media make government more transparent, while minimizing legal risk and ensuring long-term transparency? With the evolution of communication technologies, interactions with your agency's constituents are no longer just one-way. But how can your agency best leverage the fluid, flexible communications found on sites such as Facebook & Twitter while also complying with legal requirements.
