Find Out More EMV security standard EMV is a technical standard for card payments and ensures that card data is transmitted securely. Authentication and data transfer takes place via a microprocessor chip. Card data is stored twice on the credit or debit card: on the magnetic stripe and on the chip. Today’s technical standard is the anti-counterfeit chip. If a payment terminal is equipped with a chip reader, authentication takes place automatically via the EMV chip and not via the technically outdated magnetic stripe. When paying with EMV, the cardholder identifies himself by entering his personal identification number, the PIN. The card is thus much better protected in the event that the card is lost than with a signature. It will be a few years before PIN payment is accepted worldwide. The payment terminals from SIX Payment Services, however, are all equipped with EMV chip readers as standard.
