EMV Migration and Its Impact on Merchants and Community Businesses

278 views

Published on

October 1, 2015 marks a major milestone in the U.S. payments landscape. As of that date, liability for
fraudulent, counterfeit credit and debit card transactions shifts from issuers to merchants, unless those
merchants have migrated to POS technology that accommodates credit and debit cards manufactured in
compliance with the EMV (Europay/MasterCard/Visa) standard. In this primer, we take a look at what
EMV is, what the liability shift is meant to accomplish, how migration will benefit merchants and what
consequences merchants should (and shouldn’t) expect from failure to embrace EMV-compliant
technology. We also dispel some of the myths surrounding EMV implementation, layout the basic
groundwork for EMV migration and explore other technologies that should be implemented in conjunction
with EMV as part of a comprehensive data security solution.
