Though EMV Chip technology (chip and pin) has been effective in decreasing card fraud, criminals are increasingly using new methods to compromise data. From July 1st 2015, requirement 9.9 will be enforced by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
This requirement will ensure that merchants have controls and countermeasures in place to minimise their vulnerability to future attacks caused by skimming and substitution techniques.
