More than 100 million Americans have lost personal information in a data breach over the last year, and identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the US. As a result, President Obama has launched a government initiative to support the US migration to EMV and improve information sharing on cyberfraud threats, and nearly half of US merchant terminals are expected to accept EMV cards by the end of next year.
As of October 1 of 2015, merchants and acquirers—not card issuers—will bear the financial burden resulting from fraudulent use of counterfeit, lost and stolen cards. It's a risk that's only mitigated by demonstration and documentation of EMV compliance. Beyond the liability shift, EMV holds promise as an enabler of secure mobile and e-commerce payments, with attractive PCI (Payment Card Industry) Security Standards-related benefits for merchants. Those who implement EMV contact- and contactless-enabled POS devices may be excused from PCI audits and the costs associated with them, creating further incentive to adopt EMV.
In this webinar, we'll discuss the details behind the migration to EMV, how the technology works, and some top security guidelines for EMV and Mobile Payments in 2015.
