DETAILS: The October 2015 liability shift is just seven months away, at which time the liability risks of potential credit card fraud fall to retailers if they fail to upgrade POS terminals to be Chip and PIN compatible. Chip and PIN offers more secure transactions for customers, banks and the credit card industry. Early preparation is the key to ensuring that Americans get the most out of this new, more secure technology. Demand for Chip and PIN technologies and expertise will rise as the October 2015 deadline draws closer. Merchants need to be aware of the right steps to ensure consumers’ protection. 

Dick Mitchell, director of solutions for the Technology Deployment Services practice at Randstad Technologies, will host a webinar, “Chip and PIN Deadline: The Clock is Ticking.” With more than 30 years’ experience in technology deployments, Mitchell will discuss the upcoming transition to Chip and PIN and its impact on POS terminals and payment systems. He is frequently interviewed about Randstad Technologies’ expertise with Chip and PIN deployments, and has written articles and been quoted in publications such as USA Today, Payments Source and Retail Info Systems News.
