EMV protects against the misuse of lost or stolen cards through cryptography and the use of a PIN (which a magnetic strip does not, making credit card replication more difficult and more costly for thieves.)
- Chips are embedded in the card and contain encrypted data that is accessed by the reader in the point of service terminal
- A code or “cryptogram” is sent to the processor during the transaction to validate the card and cardholder
