Covera discounts cards for CUs in Heartland breach
ALBANY, N.Y. (2/18/09)--Covera Card Solutions recently announced that credit unions impacted by the Heartland Payment Systems security breach will receive a special card replacement discount. Any plastic orders placed as a result of the compromise will be discounted by 15%. Card payments processor Heartland Payment Systems announced in January that its processing system was breached last year by a malicious software program in what could be the largest data breach to date, with possibly more than 100 million credit cards compromised (News Now Jan. 21). “In these difficult financial times and in light of the largest account compromise in history, Covera Card Solutions wants to extend a hand to credit unions,” said Chief Operating Officer Kimberly McCumber-Ploof. The information breached included card numbers and cardholders’ names. It did not include merchant data, cardholders' Social Security numbers, unencrypted personal identification numbers, addresses or telephone numbers, said the Princeton, N.J.-based company in a press release. Covera Card Solutions provides credit unions in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut with credit, debit and ATM card programs.
