Consult Hyperion, a UK consultancy specialising in secure transactions, has joined Visa's Asia Pacific Chip Migration Partner Programme.
Under the programme, Consult Hyperion will provide objective analysis and recommendations to Visa members moving from magnetic stripe to EMV(Europay, Mastercard and Visa) chip-based smart cards.
Craig Richman, director at Consult Hyperion for Asia Pacific says that chip migration in Asia Pacific has gathered momentum over the past 18 months. He adds: "The move towards smart cards in the banking sector will not only address the problem of rising credit card fraud, but also provide a platform for the development of some exciting value-added applications across a variety of channels."
