Tampa, FL (September 14, 2012) - Card Services for Credit Unions (CSCU) announces the launch of its EMV Essentials website, an educational resource for credit unions to learn more about the transition to EMV in the United States.
EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) is the global standard for authenticating credit and debit card transactions. While the U.S. is the last large marketplace to adopt EMV, the foundation for acceleration for EMV migration is underway. Credit unions need to understand the key components of this technology, what it means to the industry, Visa and MasterCard timelines and key dates, and considerations for their planning processes. This site strives to be the conduit of information for credit unions.
As a leader in the card processing industry, CSCU’s EMV Essentials will provide the tools and insight available for member credit unions to stay informed of the current trends and considerations as new information becomes available.
The site will be continually updated with on-demand webcasts, industry research papers, articles and commentary from industry experts regarding the approaching EMV liability shift and what it means for your credit union.
