  • Chip Cards Finally Come to America – But What Does it Mean for Merchants and Consumers?

    October 01, 2015, Andrew Barratt, Managing Director, Europe

    The real debate is, will EMV adoption do anything for card data security?

    Andrew Barratt, Coalfire’s Managing Director of Europe, explained some lessons learned from the United Kingdom. He sat down with John Rostern, executive vice president, to discuss the EMV liability shift.
