The Chernobyl of Payments?

PaymentsViews logo 140pxIn an article titled "Is the Target Breach the Chernobyl of Payments?" on our PaymentsViews.com blog, Glenbrook's Allen Weinberg says he's "been thinking that the Target breach has become the Chernobyl of the payments world."

I’m wondering if we, who unlike Europeans and others, can’t be bothered to use Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode because “we’re protected anyway”, may be taking a different view of who we give our payment credentials to after “Payments Chernobyl” and what steps we’ll be willing to take to protect our accounts.

Has the Target breach affected your use of cards for payments? Read Allen's article and add your comments - he'd enjoy hearing from you.
