The Smart Card Alliance Latin American will host a series of webinars discussing a report on EMV deployments in Brazil and Mexico.
The Alliance and Visa Inc. commissioned a report on why Mexico and Brazil are deploying EMV systems. Reducing payments fraud is the top driver for issuers and acquirers to adopt EMV/chip in Brazil and Mexico. Other important findings: respondents are also driven to adopt EMV/chip cards in order to position themselves as innovators and technology leaders, and they all expect to have 100 percent of their credit and debit card portfolios migrated to EMV/chip within one to five years.
SCALA and Visa commissioned First Annapolis Consulting to survey issuers and acquirers in Brazil and Mexico on the state of EMV migration and the long-term growth of the EMV market. The resulting report, “EMV Migration Study and Market Analysis on Mexico and Brazil,” is available for purchase by both Smart Card Alliance members and non-members by visiting here.
The organizations will host English, Portuguese and Spanish language webinars on the study findings. The English language webinar will take place on December 1st at at 11:00 A.M. eastern standard time, while the Portuguese and Spanish webinars will take place on December 8 at 11:00 A.M. eastern standard time and 12:00 P.M. eastern standard time, respectively. Registration for the webinars is available here.
