On March 7, Visa and Mastercard announced the formation of a cross-industry payment security working group, which the payment system providers state will be focused on “enhancing payment system security to keep pace with the expectations of consumers, retailers and financial institutions.” The group’s initial focus will be on supporting the adoption of EMV chip technology in the United States. In addition, the group will promote tokenization and point-to-point encryption, and will develop “an actionable roadmap for securing the future across all segments of the payments industry.” The group will include representatives from banks of all sizes, credit unions, acquirers, retailers, point-of-sale device manufacturers and industry trade groups.
