it and How Does it Work?</span></div><div><span  
style="font-size:12.8000001907349px"><br></span></div><div><span  
style="font-size:12.8000001907349px">Europay MasterCard Visa (EMV) is a  
global standard by introducing a microprocessor chip into all debit and  
credit cards. This chip which will eventually replace the current magnetic  
strip on the back of credit cards as a means of mitigating credit card  
fraud. All U.S. merchants will be required to support EMV by October,  
2015.</span></div><div><span  
style="font-size:12.8000001907349px"><br></span></div><div><span  
style="font-size:12.8000001907349px">This new standard has been in use in  
Europe and Asia for many years and has proven to be an improvement over the  
mag stripe. However, there are new risks associated with the chip and the  
debate of the proper implementation of this new standard (e.g. the  
advantage over "chip-and-pin" vs. "chip-and-signature") will continue for  
some time.</span></div><div><span

style="font-size:12.8000001907349px">What is this new technology and how  
will it be used in transactions? The physical and logical security  
characteristics of this new standard will be presented, new risks will be  
addressed and security recommendations will be  
given.</span></div><div><span
