While there is growing urgency due to a looming liability shift and increasing market pressures, many financial institutions are overwhelmed by the number of decisions that must be made – and made quickly. A recent Fiserv survey found 28 percent of financial institutions are undecided about the comprehensive nature of their migration and more than a third are unsure about their timeline for card replacement, pointing to the need for guidance and direction.Financial institutions are looking for expertise and information regarding costs, timing and program components, according to the survey. When asked how much weight they would give to the recommendations of their EFT processor when making decisions about EMV-enabled debit cards, 68 percent of respondents said they would make decisions with some guidance from their processor and 26 percent said they would follow their processor’s recommendations. That means nearly all respondents – 94 percent – plan to make decisions with at least some guidance from their processors.All four major card associations have announced timelines for shifting liability for specific forms of card fraud to parties that are not EMV compliant. By October 2015, Visa and MasterCard will shift the POS transaction liability for certain types of card fraud, including fraud resulting from counterfeit, and lost or stolen cards, to parties that are not EMV-compliant. continue reading »

MASON CITY —Concerns are rising in Iowa the COVID-19 pandemic is allowing child abuse to go unreported while making it more challenging for people trying to get out of abusive households.Mary Ingham is executive director of Crisis Intervention Services, which serves 15 north-central Iowa counties.She says more people are reaching out through email and texts because they’re unable to get away from an abusive family member.Ingham says, “Two months ago, most people could find a time that they could be alone, when their partner is gone or maybe they’re running errands, and people just aren’t moving like that anymore.”Ingham says Iowans should regularly check in with friends and family members to make sure they’re safe. They can contact victim services programs to find support and safe housing.Since the pandemic forced schools to close, child abuse reports have fallen, but advocates fear it could mean some abuse is being overlooked.Ingham encourages everyone to keep in contact with their neighbors and report any suspicious activity to authorities.A report from the state ombudsman’s office in April found child abuse reports to the Department of Human Services fell more than 16% from February to March — when schools across the state closed.
