They Think The Public Is Gullible.

 More Security Theater

Image result for Chip and pin cards So does the new chip and pin cards increase their security.

The answer seems to be: sort of, a little, but not a whole lot, almost as efficient as the TSA airport theater.

 According to Jerry Irvine, who is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Cybersecurity Leadership Council and CIO of Chicago-based Prescient Solutions.

 More security theater?

It sounds that way when Jerry starts reeling of the kinds of attacks the new cards will do nothing to prevent.

 Even so, October 1 is the date after which merchants are supposed to be liable for fraudulent purchases made with old-style cards, and are supposed to have point of sale terminals that accept "chip and PIN" cards.
