As EMV migration and adoption accelerate throughout 2016, an increase in Card Not Present fraud is inevitable. EMV shifts caused considerable spikes in CNP fraud in Canada and Europe more than a decade ago when mobile shopping didn’t even exist, and the ramifications for the U.S. could be enormous.
The shift to EMV is adding complexity and cost for card issuers and it’s only going to tackle part of the problem around payments fraud. That’s according to Render Dahiya, CEO of Arroweye Solutions at least.
Fifty-four percent of those 2014 breaches related to identity theft; 17 percent to financial access; and 11 percent to account access. And in that year, 32 data records were lost or stolen every second—averaging out to almost 2.8 million a day. In a world of widespread breaches, card issuers must look at reissuance as an opportunity.
