Ransom Ware Threatens Marketers

Cybercrime

Ransom Ware Threatens Marketers

Mark Radosevich wrote an article on January 17, 2018 that appears on the  Convenience Store Decisions website covering the growing concerns of cybercrimes within the petroleum marketer’s community.

Read the full article here on Convenience Store Decisions.

As the opening tagline states, “Cybercrime knows no bounds, and not paying attention to your computer security can trip up a company plenty.”

The article discusses what prime targets petroleum marketers are becoming for cybercrime and ransomware due to the high volume of customers and cash petroleum wholesalers and oil marketers deal with.  These attacks are further being fueled due to non-traditional banking intermediaries such as Bitcoin being involved to aid the nefarious schemers activities that makes finding such culprits far more difficult to impossible!

And while private individuals should be very concerned about identity theft and security, any and all businesses need to be far more concerned these days because they are dealing with the financial and personal data of thousands to millions of individuals along with that of their own business. And last I looked, technology is becoming more prevalent in everyone’s day to day life as time marches forward…unless you want to live in the wilds away from society that is.

It is always the best course of action to deal with highly qualified experts dedicated to cyber security to minimize the impact and fallout so you do not become the next victim.

Gilbarco Announces First US Fuel Dispenser EMV “Chip” Transaction

Gilbarco First US EMV Dispenser
The following article has been reproduced from the original content found at http://www.gilbarco.com/us/news/gilbarco-announces-first-us-fuel-dispenser-emv-chip-transaction

Heightens Security and Meets Growing Consumer Expectations

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Gilbarco Veeder-Root has announced the successful processing of the first US EMV™ “chip” transaction at a fuel dispenser, utilizing Gilbarco’s Passport® Point-of-Sale (POS) and Encore® fuel dispensers on the First Data network (NYSE:FDC).

Gilbarco’s Passport POS solution is the first POS in the US to process forecourt EMV transactions, leveraging FlexPay™ CRINDS from Gilbarco.  Gilbarco expects forecourt EMV payments to quickly begin turning on across the country at the large installed base of FlexPay CRINDS as the software is released for payment networks throughout the year, and as fraud migrates to less secure payment points and security-conscious customers migrate to those sites with enhanced security.  The Passport POS system has supported EMV in-store transactions since May 2016.  With simple software upgrades, Passport sites can be easily configured and enabled for full EMV transactions at the dispenser for all major card types.

“Gilbarco is proud to continue to lead the market on EMV technologies, both inside the store and at the dispenser.  Our customers are looking to enable EMV at the dispenser as soon as possible, to provide the security their customers expect of them, and to get the most of the forecourt EMV hardware investments they’ve already made,” said Mark Williams, Vice President of Marketing, Gilbarco Veeder-Root.

Kamlesh Patel, owner of the 49 Fuels site processing the first US forecourt EMV transaction was eager to enable EMV at the forecourt, stating, “Our dispensers were already EMV-ready, so turning on EMV at the dispenser just required a simple Passport software upgrade.  We’ve seen our customers rapidly become accustomed to paying with their chip cards inside the store on our Passport system, and they are quickly expecting to be able to use their chip card at the dispenser, as they know that it gives them additional security.”
