Global credit card giants Mastercard found in a recent survey that an overwhelming majority of Americans are interested in new payment technologies.While some 77% of consumers said new technologies are having a positive impact on personal security, 83% are excited about new payment tech helping to protect financial information.In other results on personal data about passwords, 55% of respondents said that they would rather naked pictures of them leaked online than financial data, and 46% rarely (if at all).”Our survey reveals there's a sharp contrast between what people say or think they are doing to protect their information and what they actually do, but that's understandable – we're human,” said Carolyn Balfany, SVP of U.S. Product Delivery – EMV, MasterCard.”In today's digital age, we need the strong combination of what we all can do ourselves to keep our information as safe as possible and what we are doing at MasterCard to bring the latest innovations in safety and security to our cardholders.”Robert Siciliano, Identity Theft and Personal Security Expert added, “Today's digital lifestyle means consumer concerns for online safety and security trumps physical security as a close second. It's great that consumers have heightened awareness, but while they may understand personal responsibility they still want to feel protected by the institutions who are also responsible for protecting their data.”
