Salisbury Bank Offers a Free Seminar on EMV Chip Card Technology

July 23, 2015

Salisbury Bank is offering this free seminar on what business owners need to know about EMV Chip Card Technology.

Are you prepared for the EMV Conversion? EMV (Europay, MasterCard® & Visa®) chip card technology is becoming the global standard for credit card payments. Merchants will need to upgrade to EMV enabled credit card processing terminals in order to accept these chip cards and further enhance fraud protection. Traditionally, the card issuer has assumed risk and liability for fraudulent transactions. Effective October 2015, the liability falls on the merchant.

Seminar Topics:

  • Introduction to the credit card payments industry.

  • What is EMV and why the conversion to pin and chip technology?

  • Understanding EMV transaction processing and the implications of this new liability shift.

  • Using best business practices for credit card processing and fraud prevention.

  • How will your current provider prepare your business for EMV?

Presenter Joseph A. Santoro is the Chief Operations Officer at East Commerce Solutions, Inc. Joseph joined as Executive Vice President of Sales in 1999 and was elected to the Board of Directors in 2001. In 2009, he assumed the responsibility of Chief Operations Officer overseeing operations and emerging markets for growth and expansion.
