EMV and Payment Card Issuance

To increase security and expand the ways in which cards can be used, Mastercard and Visa jointly developed the EMV standard for chip-based payment cards. This effort makes it virtually impossible to extract information and create counterfeit cards, thus eliminating the greatest sources of fraud faced with traditional magnetic stripe cards.
