Security of Internet Payments – EBA Guidelines
The European Banking Authority (EBA) has published its final Guidelines on the Security of Internet Payments. We are fully supportive of the objectives behind the Guidelines and agree with the importance of consumers being protected against fraud when making payments online. Ensuring the security of payments and the protection of sensitive customer data is a critical part of the infrastructure of robust payment systems.
