As the speed and scope of payments increase, JCB constantly monitors the changes and challenges that we face in keeping our customers up to date with the international community with secure solutions.
JCB is a leader in the fight against credit card fraud. JCB developed the J/Smart EMV compliant chip card application for the JCB international brand, and as one of Japan's largest card issuers has been issuing chip cards as standard since 2001. JCB owns EMVCo along with American Express, MasterCard and Visa, and promotes global standards and infrastructure for highly secure chip card transactions.
JCB's J/Secure payer authentication program has been protecting JCB cardmembers from identity theft since 2004. J/Secure makes payment more secure by adding an important password identification step to verify the identity of the person making a card payment when shopping on the internet.
JCB and other major payment brands founded the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council in 2006 to manage the ongoing evolution of payment security on a global level. The council's security standards for protecting customer information and preventing card fraud build a secure payment environment where customers can use their card with confidence.
