As consumer's expectations for on-demand service continues to rise, banks continue to meet consumer needs by integrating instant issuance of debit cards into their branch locations. By doing so, branches are helping to drive incremental revenue for banks, increase top of wallet card placement and card activation, all while working to meet the increased demands of their customers. A recent study by Javelin Strategy, sponsored by Entrust Datacard, shows that cardholders are 22 percent more likely to be very-to-extremely satisfied with their bank if they have received and instantly issued debit card instead of a card sent by mail.

They will be able to get a personalized Chase debit card when they open a new checking account or lose or damage their existing card - eliminating the several-day wait to receive a card through the mail.

Use of cash and checks has declined significantly as consumers continue to embrace a range of card-based payment options. Debit cards in particular have enjoyed phenomenal growth over the past decade. The good news is that financial institutions are still in a great position to capitalize on debit card growth by focusing on profitability through core deposit accounts. But in order to grow deposit accounts, customer service and product innovation are crucial prerequisites.

From facing war crimes and drug trafficking to computer crime and weapons smuggling, the International Police Organization (INTERPOL) has its collective hands full. It's an organization whose membership base spans 190 countries, and its officials are tasked with a lot of international travel. This isn't the kind of travel that's done at a leisurely pace, though. With culprits around the world to catch, INTERPOL agents need to travel expediently to nab criminals who use fraud and coercion to cross national borders and evade detection.

In March, a chart came out comparing the stereotypical computer hacker of 1995 to that of 2015. According to the chart's characterization, the hacker of 20 years ago was in every sense an amateur: often a kid in a basement seeing how much he or she could get away with. By today's standards, the 1995 hackers come off as almost benign. Sure, they would play around with the data on your computer and cause you a hassle here and there, but at the end of the day they were not stealing your identity, making off with your credit cards or trying to take control of the car you're driving. Flash forward 20 years and you have an image of the hacker that is entirely different from its predecessor.

It’s October 1 – Do your credit and debit cards have smart chips in them? Are your local and national merchants ready to accept your cards? Do the merchants know how to accept your chip card? Your answer: Maybe? With today as the self-imposed deadline by credit card companies for U.S. adoption of EMV technology, many card issuers and merchants are finding themselves lagging behind. Many consumers are still waiting for their new chip cards to be issued by their banks and merchants are still trying to figure out how to operate their new payment terminals.

October 1 was a game-changing day as far as credit cards are concerned. That's because this was the day that the EMV rollout went into effect in the United States. Although "rollout" was the term used to broadly describe what took place, October 1 did not actually signal a mandatory implementation of EMV across the board. Instead, it represented a fraud liability shift, wherein merchants - and not card providers - will be largely responsible for dealing with fraudulent transactions if these merchants are not EMV-enabled. This shifting of responsibility is meant to spur retailers to quickly adopt EMV processing capabilities.

The Freestart collision for full SHA-1 paper was released by Marc Stevens, Pierre Karpman and Thomas Peyrin. This is not a collision attack on the SHA-1 function itself, but on the compression function that underlies it. The research paper states "Freestart collisions, like the one presented here, do not directly imply a collision for SHA-1. However, this work is an important milestone towards an actual SHA-1 collision and it further shows how graphics cards can be used very efficiently for these kind of attacks."
