Retail Industry Leaders Association Key Developments
Target to Issue REDcards Enabled with MasterCard Chip and Pin Security Technology in 2015
Apr 30 14
The Retail Industry Leaders Association announced that Target will begin issuing branded REDcards enabled with MasterCard Chip and PIN security technology in 2015. Chip and PIN cards are being used throughout the world, and yet migration to Chip cards in the United States is set to begin in October 2015 without the crucial functionality of PIN. RILA urges card issuers and card networks to include universal PIN security when migrating chip-based smart card technology in order to best protect the company shared customers. According to the Federal Reserve, simply using a PIN on debit card transactions makes the transaction 700% more secure than when a PIN is not used. As demonstrated today, merchants are willing to make shared investments for enhanced security and the company want to work together with the company partnering card issuers and card networks to implement this technology in a way that is most secure for the company joint customers' data.
