PCI COMPLIANCY & EMV EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, a global standard for interoperation of integrated circuit cards (IC cards or "chip cards") and IC card capable point of sale (POS) terminals and automated teller machines (ATMs), for authenticating credit and debit card transactions. Maintaining your PCI Compliancy DOES NOT require you to accommodate chip card transactions, YET.

EMV LIABILITY SHIFT A traditional magnetic stripe card is swiped by the customer at a magnetic stripe terminal. If the purchase is a counterfeit transaction, the merchant is generally not liable, just like in the past.

EMV LIABILITY SHIFT A chip card is used at a traditional magnetic stripe-only terminal. If the purchase is a counterfeit transaction, the merchant is generally holds liability, because the issuer has made the investment in chip technology to make transactions more secure while the merchant did not invest in upgrading to chip.

EMV LIABILITY SHIFT A chip card is used at a chipenabled terminal that has been activated by the merchant. If the purchase is a counterfeit transaction, the merchant is not liable, and the issuer will continue to bear the responsibility of counterfeit fraudulent activity.

SECURITY BENEFIT OF CHIP TECHNOLOGY Chip cards protect in-store payments by generating a unique, one-time code needed for the transaction to be approved. This feature makes it virtually impossible to counterfeit cards, helping to eliminate in-store fraud.

WHY EMV? More Secure Transaction Protects against counterfeit Deters breaches Infrastructure enhancements LIABILITY SHIFT Designated dispute codes Fraud falls to the least secure technology Cannot rebut disputes Issuers must close reported cards

BEST PRACTICES Identifying Counterfeit: Verification of last 4 digits Compare signatures Card identification features CVV/CVV2/CID and/or AVS Acceptance Options: Stand alone EMV terminal Middleware/PAX (pin pad connected to the POS) Vendor certifications (inquire directly to POS) Convert to EMV certified vendor Processor Best Practices: Spot checking card closures Monitoring for issuer/customer abuse Escalation process for patterns of misuse Monitoring for incomplete or incorrect disputes

BENEFITS OF UPGRADING TO EMV PROCESSING WITH REVENTION Removes your point of sale from scope of PCI Compliancy. Allows you, as a merchant, to qualify for the SAQ C - PCI-DSS Self-Assessment Questionnaire. P2PE – Point to point encryption. NFC Processing – include Apple Pay, Google Wallet, Samsung Pay. Supports PIN/Debit. Chip card processing.

QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CONSIDERING THE EMV UPGRADE What will be the hardware investment? When integrated with POS, which processors are supported? Does the solution support the tips being added after the initial transaction? When is a PIN required? How does this effect full service restaurants that don’t have table side processing? Are your gift cards still supported?
