CO-OP supports Visa, First Data EMV agreement
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (3/3/14)--CO-OP Financial Services welcomed a recent agreement for debit EMV security standards between Visa Inc. and First Data STAR Network, a major electronic funds transfer system.
 
The credit union-owned ATM network operator said Friday that a number of its clients are in the STAR Network, and that it is also seeking to implement similar protective technologies like the one Visa and First Data hope to spread through their agreement.
 
"Like STAR, CO-OP is among the leading PIN debit networks in the Debit Network Alliance working to provide a structure for the common deployment and implementation of the debit EMV standard," the company said in a press release.
 
Last week, Visa and First Data announced they would work together to offer issuers, acquirers and merchants a new system based on cards with integrated circuits called EMV chips. The chips generate one-time codes for each transaction, making card-counterfeiting more difficult.
 
The two companies said in a press release that the agreement "will help to enable the development of regulation-compliant debit EMV solutions using a common Application Identifier (AID)."
