Ask anyone in the payments industry how they are feeling about technology innovation, and you will get a mixed response. Many are embracing new customer convenience options such as mobile payments, virtual currencies, and the deployment of chip and PIN – yet, a new survey found a majority of executives believe pressure to migrate to these new payments systems puts customer data at risk.
According to Experian Data Breach Resolution's report, "Data Security in the Payments Ecosystem," retailers, financial institutions, payment processors and credit card brands responsible for delivering new payments systems in the U.S. are at a security crossroads.
