Keeping cards secured, both against fraud as well as securing the supply chain, is a constant fight, said Benoit Guez, director of smart cards and new technologies for CPI Card Group. “It’s always a fight with the bad guys. You try to be one step ahead of them, so you have a lot of new features that are coming in to make the card construction more difficult.”
Which leads to CPI’s core competency. “What we’ve been trying to do is stay focused on our abilities, and our real skills which is card manufacturing” added Guez.
