Do you find yourself having to ask a retailer whether to swipe or insert your card at the terminal these days? It has been more than a year since the Visa designated deadline of October 1, 2015 and EMV status in the United States is still greatly in limbo, affecting both consumers and businesses alike.  Since this deadline has passed, the liability for fraudulent transactions shifted to the party responsible for not supporting the chip cards. For example, if a retailer doesn’t have a chip-based terminal where the fraud occurs, the retailer would be responsible. However, if the credit card issuer doesn’t provide a chip based card to the customer, the credit card issuer would be liable.

Does your client base understand the various SOC reporting options and what they are asking of your organization from a compliance reporting perspective? Is there a connection to internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR) of the services that you provide to your clients, or are you looking at general controls of a system that are relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and/or privacy? SOC 1 can oftentimes be misused by the general public as a generic reference to third party examinations. There is misconception in the marketplace; help prevent it.
