The efficiency and integrity of payment card systems: industry views on the risks posed by data breaches

To examine the adequacy of existing efforts to prevent, manage, and mitigate data breaches and other fraud in card-based payment systems, the authors conducted 17 interviews of various payment industry participants in 2009.
