In an article recently published by Security Magazine, Equifax’s Andy Smith discusses changes to the fraud landscape with the implementation of EMV technology in credit cards and retail.

While these cards improve security for in-person transactions, they are less dependable when it comes to online purchases. There is a trend for an increase in online and identity fraud such as application fraud and account take-over as the transition to the new cards happens.
