    In this segment of BSMtv, Chester Ritchie, senior VP of strategic partnerships for Worldpay, explains the benefits of combining EMV with point-to-point encryption and tokenization. He says EMV, which uses chip cards that create a unique code for each transaction, protect against card fraud only.
