Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
There was a time, not too long ago, when credit card processing involved carbon paper and a heavy sliding machine. In less than a lifetime--between 1950 when the Diners Club issued their first credit card until today--credit processing has advanced significantly. In a world where online businesses make paying with cash seem old-fashioned, security has only become more essential. Not just businesses, but consumers have also become increasingly familiar with the security surrounding their credit card payments.
In a 7 News article published on February 26, 2014, data states that there have been breaches at a number of retailers (including Nieman Marcus and Target) have alerted both businesses and consumers to just how significant data security has become. Target's highly publicized breach lead to the loss of data affecting 110 million people, more than three times the total population of Canada.
Those are big numbers for retailers, but it also indicates a growing interest for cyber-criminals--one which only stands to grow as the money behind ecommerce grows. According to an article published by the New York Times on January 10, 2014, digital sales are slated to double in Canada to 38.74 billion Canadian dollars.
Customers and criminals love online credit payments for the same reasons: they are convenient from anywhere in the world. "Payment processing must work for the consumer, but it absolutely must protect the consumer as well," commented Parry Rosenberg, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MONEXgroup.
