MasterCard lends helping hand to online traders
MasterCard is to help online traders tackle fraud with a two-part self-assessment security scheme.
Site Data Protection is an initiative that requires traders to complete a questionnaire on their business practices, which MasterCard then gives a security rating.
MasterCard then scans traders' websites to check for security flaws.
The scheme, which also includes chip and Pin security measures, is expected to begin before next January.
