Canada reports EMV cuts fraud losses

Canada reports EMV cuts fraud losses

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Brandon KuehlWith 80 countries around the globe currently in different phases of EMV chip card adoption, the technology’s impact on fraud is becoming clearer.Canada, for instance, converted to the EMV standard in 2007, giving our neighbor to the north a solid five years of data to analyze. With a reported 94 percent of Canadian point-of-sale (POS) terminals and nearly 100 percent of Canadian ATMs being EVM chip-enabled, EMV is nearly ubiquitous throughout the country.Canadian debit network Interac Association recently released information on the reduction in debit card fraud losses due to EMV in Canada. Specifically, Interac reports card-skimming fraud declined to $29.5 million in 2013. That’s considerably lower than Canada’s peak skimming fraud total of $142 million in 2009.According to Interac, which collaborates with the New York Currency Exchange (NYCE) network to permit Canadian cardholders to make purchases from some 2 million U.S. merchants, just 25 percent of 2013 fraud losses resulted from fraud inside Canada. The other 75 percent occurred via Canadians’ non-EMV transactions at U.S. retailers. continue reading »last_img read more

Stockholm Citybanan test running begins

Stockholm Citybanan test running begins

first_imgSWEDEN: The start of test running on the Citybanan deep-level link across central Stockholm was marked when guests including Minister of Infrastructure Anna Johansson rode on a special train from Stockholms Södra to Tomteboda in the north through the immersed tunnel on January 14. Testing is being undertaken using a Trafikverket Y1S diesel railcar, pending the completion of work to install electrification equipment on the 6 km route. Construction of the SKr16·8bn Citybanan is scheduled to be completed this summer and the opening is planned for July 2017, increasing total capacity through the city from 28 to 52 trains/h. Cross-city suburban rail services will be diverted from the current double-track ‘wasp’s waist’ route which is shared with long-distance passenger and freight trains and forms a significant bottleneck on the national network. ‘Citybanan is of great importance for efficient commuter trains in Stockholm but it is equally important for the improvement of punctuality on all of Sweden’s rail network’, said Johansson. ‘Now we are approaching completion we may soon see a real and necessary boost to rail service’.last_img read more
