No! They’re not related, they’re just on our mind and topics of our latest surveys for eBusiness executives. The eBusiness and Channel Strategy research team maintains a panel that we survey online each quarter on a variety of topics (join here if you’re not already a member).
Our last survey looked at what eBusiness managers are doing about fraud in light of the recession. We found that, for the most part, fraud hasn’t increased with the recession. eBusiness leaders plan to spend $23 million on technology on their customer-facing online sites to detect and combat fraud, and they currently attribute losing 0.6% of their sales to fraud.

This quarter, we’re surveying our panelists on their eBusiness teams’ multichannel sales and service strategy and how well their companies meet customers' needs across channels.
