Electronic Payments Coalition Calls on Retailers to Adopt Common Sense Security Standards
| Electronic Payments Coalition
Today, the U.S. House Small Business Committee will hold the second part of a hearing entitled “The EMV Deadline and What it Means for Small Businesses,” which will address payment security in the United States.
“Instead of providing Congress with useful information about how to help small businesses protect consumer data, large national retail associations are using this hearing to push for a ‘security’ solution – PIN – that wouldn’t have done anything to stop the breaches at Target, Home Depot or Michaels,” said Sam Fabens, spokesperson for the Electronic Payments Coalition.
