Chicago – Cardtek Group, a provider of software for financial transactions and EMV migration, is launching Cardtek USA. The company’s North American headquarters, based in Chicago, will facilitate the U.S. adoption of Europay-MasterCard-Visa (EMV) technology in an effort to help prevent credit card fraud and data breaches.
Since 2010, Cardtek Group has been providing issuers and acquirer banks with payment product options in North America. Now, Cardtek has established domestic operations to help expedite the transition to EMV chip technology in the U.S.
“The American consumer is the most vulnerable consumer in the world for credit card fraud – Americans deserve an upgrade,” said Gokhan Inonu, president of Cardtek USA.
