DIGITAL IDENTITY TRACKER – DECEMBER 2015 EDITION*
2015 excelled at throwing curveballs at the security industry. Between multiple high-profile data breaches, Jeep hacks and corporate espionage, this year drove home the need for generating, securing and verifying personal identity in the digital world. The PYMNTS Digital Identity TrackerTM, powered by Oberthur Technologies, has all the highlights.
- Regulation: An important step toward thwarting cyber attacks was President Obama’s signing of the Executive Order on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection.
- EMV and Payments: One of the most significant stories of the year was the migration to EMV or chip cards in the U.S., which promises a significant uptick in card protection.
- Faster, Secure Payments Ensured: The Federal Reserve set up Faster Payments Initiative to implement a safe, ubiquitous, faster payments capability.
This issue also includes the profiles of 89 industry players, with 6 new profiles — Allweb Technologies, BioCatch, CyberExtruder, Heartland Payment Systems, Ping Identity and Sequent — and updated two companies: Ethoca and Giesecke & Devrient.
