EMV is here.

October 1st is around the corner and the new EMV rules take place. Don’t panic if you don’t have new equipment in place … you may not even need to make a change. It is simply a risk tolerance issue. If you are a coffee shop you are not a likely target for someone with a stolen card, and even if you are, your risk is minimal. Be safe and get a picture ID if you aren’t sure or it the transaction is large. If you are selling electronics, you should be following the new rules for reading EMV (computer chip) cards as you are a likely target. It is a common sense issue as we all begin the migration toward more secure transactions. Call us and we’ll help you navigate through the change.
