(AETOS Wire) -- Vantiv, now Worldpay, Inc. (NYSE:WP) and IDEMIA are spearheading the first North American pilot of the MOTION CODE™ debit card, a dynamic payment card that aids in the fight against card-not-present (CNP) fraud and against hackers to offset the repercussions banks face as a result of data breaches. The average cost of a data breach in the U.S. in 2017 was $7.3 million (1). In a 44 percent increase over 2016, there were 1,579 data breaches in the U.S. in 2017, 302 of which resulted in the exposure of full credit and debit card numbers (2). The MOTION CODE™ payment card replaces the static CVV code printed on the back of cards today with an e-paper mini-screen, which displays a dynamic security code that automatically changes at regular intervals. Because a MOTION CODE™ debit card constantly changes its security code, stolen data is rendered useless to bad actors within hours, if not minutes. “Worldpay prides itself on being at the forefront of fraud prevention in the U.S.,” said Bill Hampton, senior leader and head of issuer solutions at Worldpay. “In our pursuit to eliminate fraud, we continue to champion innovation in a market that typically lags behind the rest of the world. By partnering with IDEMIA to deliver MOTION CODE™ in the U.S., we will continue to offer best-in-class security to financial institutions and their cardholders. This card provides a complete......
