Why is this a potential problem? Because it would mean EMV cardholders would be prompted to swipe instead of insert, leaving their cards vulnerable to counterfeit fraud.In addition, fraudsters recently claimed they were able to manipulate dual-interface EMV cards, which offer cardholders the ability to insert, swipe or ‘tap and go.’ They said near field communication (NFC) amplifiers allowed them to read card information on dual-interface cards. With this technology, the fraudsters claim, cards would be at risk even when tucked safely in pockets and purses.Card issuers, merchants and consumers should know there are security measures in place to address both of these supposed vulnerabilities.First and foremost, the entire structure of EMV is centered on a dynamic cryptogram response system. When a cardholder inserts his or her card at the point of sale, the card is authenticated using unique transaction data from both the merchant and the card issuer. Any data a fraudster may capture during this transaction cannot be used to perform new transactions.Additionally, the neural networks payment processors like TMG have in place provide an extra layer of protection against fraud. Among the tactics these systems employ is the validation of card verification values (CVVs). If a fraudster were to overwrite the magnetic stripe on an EMV chip card, the CVV from the transaction would not match up with the CVV in the processor’s system, causing the transaction to be declined.Although EMV doubters may be quick to point out perceived flaws in the technology, there are proven benefits to it. Already, U.S. merchants with chip-enabled terminals have seen counterfeit card fraud drop by 18 percent. Other countries that have implemented EMV technology have seen similar results. England, France and Canada all saw card fraud drop exponentially after deploying EMV.While no technology is completely infallible to fraud, the robust security measures card issuers and payment processors have in place help ensure EMV lives up to its promises. The continuous evolution of fraud prevention strategies further positions EMV as the top dog in the fight against fraud.

It’s another tough golf course,” Kelly said. “I got a little loose on the back side for the second day in a row and got out of position and made some bogeys.”The only player at par or better after two days in the PGA Tour Champions’ first major of the season, Kelly — at 2 under — had some company in red numbers going into the final round.Woody Austin and Scott Parel each shot 67, and Colin Montgomerie had a 68 to get to 1 under on the testing course that was the longtime site of a PGA Tour event and later a World Golf Championship tournament.Kelly played the back nine in 2 under with three birdies and a bogey to reach 4 under. He countered a bogey on the par-4 11th with a birdie on the par-4 13th, then dropped two more strokes with bogeys on the par-3 15th and par-4 17th.“I could have made two or three more birdies,” Kelly said. “I was burning some edges. You’re going to make mistakes out here, I know that. I just need to make birdies to counteract those mistakes and limit the mistakes. So, even par is not a bad day. But I didn’t like giving them away.”Parel rebounded from a bogey on 17 with a birdie on 18.“Lucky for us, we had a little help off the tee, makes that hole a little shorter,” Parel said. “I hit a big drive yesterday and had a short shot, so I thought if I hit a good one, I would have a wedge in my hand. And I did. I hit a good shot and made a good putt.”Austin had four birdies and a bogey.“Really played good today,” Austin said. “Reminded me of a 30-something kid that used to hit it pretty good. I was struggling the first two days driving off the tee and today I drove it really well. And all my good irons kept going and I hit it really close. That’s probably the worst score I could have shot.”Miguel Angel Jimenez was fifth at 1 over after a 69.Ernie Els (68), Kenny Perry (68) and Scott Dunlap (69) were 2 over. Fred Couples followed a second-round 75 with a 68 to get to 3 over.Bernhard Langer (71) and Steve Stricker (73) were 4 over.Image credits: AP Associated Press Television News First Published: 16th August, 2020 07:23 IST
