I try to remind folks that EMV compliance is real and something that everyone who accepts credit and debits cards will have to deal with over the next year. Since I still receive calls from retail stores, restaurants, and museums who are not yet even PCI compliant, I will continue to remind everyone that EMV compliance has a deadline of October 2015 in the US. You will need to update your hardware and/or software by then or be completely liable for fraudulent transactions.
In lighter news, the good folks at Bindo Point of Sale announced today that they have all the hardware and software required to be EMV compliant. Nice to know that some companies are planning ahead and not waiting until the last minute. You can read the full press release here: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/08/prweb12075881.htm
