Data Security For Retail Consumers — Perceptions, Expectations And Potential Impacts
Over the past few years, the personal information of millions of credit and debit card users has been jeopardized through data breaches at major retail stores, causing heightened concern and loss of sales.
If you’ve received a new card from your bank in the last six months, it’s likely an EMV card with a chip. Banks are issuing EMV cards, and retailers are installing EMV-capable terminals to accept those EMV cards. Both are working toward the October 2015 deadline whereby the liability shift occurs. Today, when a counterfeit card is used in a store, the bank takes the loss. But after the liability shift, if the bank has issued an EMV card, but the retailer has not upgraded to an EMV terminal, then the retailer takes the loss resulting from counterfeit cards.
As data breaches become more common, retailers are under pressure from both consumers and regulatory agencies to build security programs that effectively protect customer data.
In case you missed the Exhibitor Big !deas session, Ready Or Not, Here Comes EMV — What Small Merchants Should Expect, here’s a recap. Moderated by Tom Pojero, head of U.S. Merchant Acquisition, panelists David Hogan, executive director, Heartland Payment Systems; Norm Merritt, president and co-CEO, ShopKeep; and Rod Hometh, SVP, market development, Ingenico Group delivered insightful commentary on the lack of EMV knowledge among SMRs.
In the wake of the massive retail data breaches we’ve seen over the past 12 months, the organizations behind EMV (also known as Chip and PIN or smart cards) have become very vocal in promoting EMV’s ability to secure credit card data. Unfortunately, not everything we’re hearing about the technology is true.
