MasterCard and Visa Lead Industry Group to Bolster Payment Security

I’ve just read this article entitled MasterCard and Visa Lead Industry Group to Bolster Payment Security and I think this is a good idea.

The reason I think this is a good idea is well mentioned in the article, but I want to hit on one point. My readership seems to be the blind community. I like the idea of replacing a credit card number with a digital equivalent. That would be kind of cool to have a change. I’m only wondering how accessible this would be? We need to have someone we trust to read our credit card numbers and security codes when we get new cards. Problem is, people could take advantage by copying the info and using the card for their own use. The credit card info is not in braille. How could we be assured that those with disabilities would be aware of what these new cards contain? We are more vulnerable than ever now, and the breaches will only get bigger.

The credit card company wanted to talk to me for some time now, and I told them about the latest. It didn’t sound good, but they did confirm that Experian is one of several data brokers of credit card information for consumers. If thats the case, and 200 million pieces of information was taken, than we can’t trust a single person here sighted or blind. I’m interested in thoughts on this article, and if you want to submit audio, please use the sendspace drop box facility from jaredrimer.net or dropbox and send me a link to download. Lets have a dialogue of this.
