ATM owners and operators have been urged to begin planning for U.S. EMV chip migration as soon as possible to protect themselves from potential fraud losses. To assist with the migration, the EMV Migration Forum today released a comprehensive white paper to serve as an educational guide for ATM providers, acquirers, processors and vendors preparing to implement EMV at the ATM in the U.S.
