EMV™

EMV is a micro-chip payment standard created by Europay®, MasterCard®, and Visa® over 10 years ago and has been implemented globally. EMV payment cards improve security over magnetic stripe technology through an embedded computer chip.

EMVCo is the organization owned by the global brands that manages the standard for global inter-operability.

Liability Implications of EMV

In the U.S. today, fraud in a card-present environment is absorbed by the Bank/Issuer unless lthe merchant fails to meet POS acceptance and dispute resoltuion requirements. Losses are offset when dispute resolution requirements allow liability to be shifted through a "chargeback process" to the Acquirer/Merchant. Today the Merchant/Acquirer takes liabilty for merchant data breaches or skimming attacks.

Starting in October 2015 with EMV, card fraud is expected to migrate to the point of least resistance: the card-not-present environment and merchants that are not EMV capable.
